removing "Dangerous" from arena mode

Post by ZEMOON »

Hi guys,

I suggest removing the "Dangerous" card from arena mode. (Two-player game)

- the card allows you to control your own dominance
- allows you to control your opponent's dominance
- attacking becomes exclusive to the holder of this card
- the opponent in most cases has to take two actions (deploying the ship + movement) to negate one action of the card holder (deploying the ship).

From my perspective, Dangerous is the most powerful card I can draw in 1vs1 mode and my opponent has a slim chance of winning against it simply because Dangerous brings too many advantages in one card.

On the other hand, I realize that my opinion is not too relevant because I haven't even played 10 games in the last three quarters of a year.
Either way, I believe Arena mods will be healthier without it.


All the best

Strongly agree, we banned "Dangerous" in our in-person games after it broke two games in a row

Good idea honestly. It's fine for bigger groups but in a 1v1 it's the best card. Tyrannical right behind it.

We could offset this by having more sabotage cards thrown into the deck maybe?

Overall I would support this and give it a try :D

I’m on the fence with this. I’ve been grabbing Dangerous when I’ve had the chance recently, and it’s definitely effective.

Pair it with Stealthy or Eager and it might break the game.

Still there are always counters to it, and it’s easily the most thematic of Command cards. Blowing up your own ship to destroy your enemy is one of most venerable plot devices in science fiction.

Right, dangerous is powerfull in 1v1, I think Clever is overkill too.

But can the bias be proven with statistics ?
This will be a strong argument to change the rules.
