Dear fellow Methuselahs,

It has been almost 6 months since the release of Vampire: Elder Kindred Network's second expansion for Vampire: the Eternal Struggle - The Unaligned.

We believe it has been enough time for the community to provide feedback regarding this set.

By answering this survey you are helping us to create even better expansions in the future.

Please answer the questions if possible, and send word about this survey to all your friends that play VTES.

Thank you.

I did the top part of the survey, but individually rating the cards takes too long. I especially won't do it without the card text presented in the question.

I also did only the top part of the survey. It would be a good thing to have at least card texts so some comments on individual cards could be made.

The main problem I find with the individual cards' ratings is that their power-level comes from the synergy they have with some of the other -both past and future!- cards in the game (or even a region-specific meta-game that affects their playability). If someone does not know the 'golden combo' that someone else does or plays in a vastly different environment (all-combat vs virtually no-combat), they could rate the cards utterly wrong and their feedback basically becomes pointless. In fact, power-level is just one aspect -and for me personally not even remotely the most important one- in Vtes-card design. The level of ingenuity (bringing fresh ideas to this great, vast game) or filling very specific (powerlevel-related or other) gaps in the game might be much more crucial in the long run. Just my $.01...

That aside, I still think it is essential to do these surveys.

One of the big things we got in the Danse Macabre feedback was that not enough of the issues with the weaker clans were addressed. This was likely due to it being a small (35-card) set spread across all the core Sabbat clans (as well as wanting to start small for our first effort). With The Unaligned, we went with a larger (70-ish) set with only five clans to try to cover them in more depth. We do want to return to the core Sabbat clans at some point, but we have no definite plans for doing so at this time. We have vague plans, and a lot of crypt cards designed and/or rough-drafted. :)

Another big thing we got from the DM feedback was confirmation that we were on the right track for power level and playability. What the feedback said was what the playtesters said. Subsequent tournament reports, winning decks, and our own observations on usage looks rather positive. That isn't a design alteration, but rather a relief that we didn't have to significantly alter something.

Many thanks to you all for the feedback!
