i was in the bathroomyukgulpwowgoo and i thought to remove the frag when the invader deck finish.what do you think about this idea???
The first negative that I thought is that the game lose the pressure of time to the marines...but on the other i think it is fairer losing from the invader player and not from the deck!!!what do you think guys???
there are a lot of veterans players here so I want their opinion

It's a timing mechanism to keep the game from going TOO long, and it represents the idea that the marines don't have unlimited time to get to the shuttles before they depart.

While me too never saw more than one Frag gained by deck depletion (and not so often, too), sometime THAT single frag is the last. This caused the marines really rush and planning very well each turn trying to balance the need to run and the risk to be killed.
More, other than being a simple "timing" mechanism, it "push" the Invader towards playing cards each time he can, making the game full of "surprises" each turn.

I'd not remove it, if i were you.

I removed it since I play with both invader decks at once.
Time is against the marines anyway. Slow marines run out of resources and get overwhelmed.

It's true. The longer you go, the more likely you are to not have the ammo to deal with monsters.

If i'm not wrong, there's a marine card that negate to loose ammo.... and anyway the Chainsaw marine have not this problem. Removing the timing mechanic make these marines even more powerful.

Even without the ammo loss it's in the marines interests to move. The invader essentially has an unlimited force. Marines HP are very limited.
