A lot of people have spent a lot more time thinking through the ramifications of TLJ than the actual writers of TLJ did. They have come right out and said that they couldn’t think of anything good enough for Luke to say for the first time hearing the character speak since 1983 so someone said “what if he just didn’t Read more

Did you miss the part at the beginning of the movie when Leia demotes Poe for acting brash and not following the chain of command? The literal thing he keeps doing for the rest of the movie? Since when do Generals explain every thing in their strategy to soldiers?

If Terry Crews isn’t the new live action heman I am going to be super disappointed.

Milling is absolutely a legitimate strategy... but CCG’s are always best when Mill is a fringe strategy, at best. It should be a surprising counter-punch, a decktype that isn’t top tier but able to knock out an unprepared and unaware opponent. Read more
