    I'm really glad you were able to touch on why people love this game, while expressing why it isn't a good fit for you. This is my favorite game in the whole world, and I love studying the matchups 🙂

    Would you do a review of AEGIS? Cool robot-anime type game I saw at PAX Unplugged

    I'd say 'lucky flip' is a bit of a misnomer. This does happen in the game, with the 'Wild Swing' attack. However, what's happening here is actually a blind bid. You both bid your cards, knowing a bit of what the opponent could do, or has the chance to do. The vast majority of this isn't character specific even – it's centered around the base cards and their interactions.

    Now even those take time to understand. So when you play just a couple of games of this, it's a crap shoot. With a bit more insight, it turns into a game of reading the intentions of your opponent and trying to thwart them.

    I despise the L99 rulebooks. Fortunately, the games themselves are great.

    i agree with they need a booklet. as for the systme itself. you didn't have the starters so there is a little less on luck but interesting review.

    I do have to say that you NEED to check out BattleCON (EXCEED's sister game) which does have the board and stuff and feels much less random since it's a perfect information game.
    It even has a video game version called BattleCON: Online. A certain king sounds a lot like you.

    Really sad they sent you this rather than Battlecon. That was their other (imo superior) 2d fighting card game. It has a traditional rule book, a board to play on, and its original ip. Game seems a bit simpler too. If you have the chance. You may prefer that. Still has flipping mechanic but hand size is 8 cards with 4 on the side that just cycle so its a lot easier to keep track of.

    Eh, I was hoping for this game to be a bit better, but I'll give it a pass. I wonder though if BattleCON and Yomi are better or not, because I've heard many different opinions about both.

    Love this game. Fair criticisms, though the cards-as-board is necessary to keep the cost down (you can get mats from L99's site if you want them, sleeves work too), and the random feeling with high speed/guard thing is only for the first couple of games, as you get to know the characters more, the middling speed/guard cards become more relevant. Much like a fighting game, the early plays feel like button mashing, more plays reveal its inner depths.

    The next set is Street Fighter, so bit more on the nose with the fighting game theme.

    As far as a highly replayable game that I can play over and over again goes, this one's great. Stands alongside Innovation and Race for the Galaxy for me. I'd recommend Church vs Empire or Guardians vs Myths for a starting set though, this one has more obtuse characters (though Renea's one of my mains).

    Highly recommend you check out also other Level99 games they've made, especially games like Millennium Blades (imagine Yu-Gi-Oh The Board Game Card Game Meta Game), Argent Consortium (Hogwarts but every teacher is a scheming arsehole after Dumbledores post), Sellswords (Final Fantasy's Triple Threat Triad but actually done well), BattleCON (like Exceed but a bit more strategic, a lot less luck and more figuring out what your opponent is gonna do, very open information game) and Pixel Tactics (strategic/tactical unit placement game with a ton of variety).

    Also recommend checking out their upcoming games like Empyreal: Spells & Steam and Seventh Cross (the board game your copy of Exceed is based on). If it isn't obvious, kinda a big fan of Level99 games, even if their games doesn't turn out the best I always find them to have something quite interesting going for them. For you SungWon, I'd definetly check out Millennium Blades if able to, they are about to release their next big expansion on Kickstarter as well.

    SungWon, I'm curious to know, but are you going to review The Binding of Isaac: Four Souls by any chance? It's a card game based off the video game The Binding of Isaac. If not, no worries.

    ProZD the channel SuperH4H4 is stealing your videos and other people's videos and you should probably take a look at it because all of the thing he's taking are pretty unedited and he gives no credit to the people he steals from.

    One of the cool things they introduced into this season you're reviewing is that each character comes with a Reference Card for their movelist. It tells you your opponent's Special and Ultra Attacks.

    That fighting game analogy you made at the end was pretty spot on

    If you guys want to get a general idea of what this game is like, BattleCON ONLINE was the predecessor to this game, and his currently F2P on Steam. https://store.steampowered.com/app/792570/BattleCON_Online/

    If anyone wants to check the game out for yourself, you can check out the Level 99 Games official Discord. We're a small but passionate community that are always willing to teach others the ins and outs of the game.

    The game even has an official modpack for Tabletop Simulator to try the game out for yourself and get some games in online.

    The game currently has two sixteen character seasons + some promos. Level 99 recently announced a third season that features the characters from Street Fighter.

    11:45 since she EX attacked she does actually have one point of armor. It doesn't matter anyways since both players EX'd, which essentially negates all of the bonuses except the +1 guard.

    For anyone interested in Exceed through this video, the set he's reviewing specifically is fairly good (all of Exceed: Seventh Cross is great really) but not necessarily as a "starter box", since the characters in it are somewhat more technical (and if someone figures out how to play Zsolt the play experience can start going down). Church vs Empire or especially Guardians vs Myths are both really good options for season 2 starter boxes, as most of the characters featured in those are somewhat easier to play. The upcoming Street Fighter Exceed is also a great place to start, characters don't completely metamorphose when exceeding and they're back to being somewhat cheaper to exceed (since there's no transforms) but the designs are still all as interesting as ever and not needing to "learn" a character twice can help with getting over the first hump while playing. If anyone is interested in learning how to play exceed through tabletop simulator or just have rules questions, the people on the official level99 games discord are very nice and helpful.

    The flipping mechanic isn’t really complete luck based and it’s never always who has the biggest number unless you’re playing blindly. The game allows the fighter to mitigate all sorts of possibilities. (Power>speed, speed>defense, defense>power) It seems that you’re playing style that is way in the offensive side, which has it’s risks. The game is about trying to get in you opponent’s head and see what is the best way to react.
