UEPs on GCCG cards as a additional errata

To share and discuss non-standard rules, from the simplest of house rules to the more serious Unofficial Errata Proposals.

Moderators: Jambo, Tegarend, Moderators

Do you want the UEPs as an addition to the errata on card in GCCG?

Yes lets do it!
No way, not another of your crazy ideas!

artist's biography
card's name in other languages
list of popular decks using this card
No one is actually suggesting that though. Lets not get carried away here. In any case IIRC you actually have to look the errata up on purpose as it doesnt appear on the card image, and also IIRC with official errata the original text is not duplicated when you look the text up. If it is I cant thin kof any reason why.

Therefore all we would have is:

Card Name
Card text (original OR official errata)
UEP (if any)

Imortantly the percentage of cards that actually have UEPs is tiny so this would hardly create a major intrusion IMHO.
So that's where that southerner is hiding...He looks more than half like a goblin.

That's fine. Then it's not a big deal. In any case, if this proposal makes its way, I'll remember to never open anymore that update everything.bat file .  :P

You ever considered a career in stand up comedy, Asphalt? Give it a try :lol:

This indeed, but the more valid argument would be, that UEP info is play related, and all the other stuff isn't. For people wanting to play a nice casual game with friends who don't make a fuss over playing a Barrow Wight at the Barrow Downs (indeed!), the UEP info is very useful...

Everyone is forgetting the number 1 issue.  ME! :D  I say what goes and doesn't go on the file server!!! MUHAHAHA!

But in all seriousness if you decide you want to do this I'll of course make the appropriate updates to the file server.

@all other no-voters explain yourselves, please.

Bruno gave some reason of concerns people might have about this project, but then gets carried away on stuff not needed to play the game.

Anyway I would like all no-voters to realize on how many card text changes this would apply

if you not know how many UEPs are even accepted don't vote, read them 1st, please.

well MECCG has over 1500 cards, and there are only 24 acccepted UEPs (it will hopefully be 30 before the LURE when a new accepted list will be listed)

even this 30 changes will result on errata being added to only 35 cards (e.g. River from both sets will be errated) form out of 1500 cards (that is an astonishing 2,3% percent of the total)

so get closer look at the subject before you would vote against something that is "in my eyes" needed to keeping this game "alive & kicking" in the years to come.
