Heroclix Players Guide Revision

SORRY Ya’ll for the lack of updates for the month of February!!

I will be working extra hard this month to add more content for YOU.  Thank you to all my loyal visitors for your patience.

In case you missed it, here is a post from the Official Heroclix website discussing the new players guide.

Published on February 14th, 2014

Greetings HeroClix Fans!

Today marks the arrival of a brand new Player’s Guide!  This PG covers A LOT of information and went through several revisions as its authors repeatedly added errata and character clarifications to an already immense completed document. This Player’s Guide is much the same, yet very different than Player’s Guides of the past. The Player’s Guide has gotten a facelift since you last read it and has added Heroclix Watch List elements.

The first thing you will notice about the Player’s Guide is that it looks different than it did last time around. Working together, the Rules Team (RT) and Game Development (GDV) thought up a new, intuitive format for the PG. Now, the PG is spit into 8 sections; General, Powers and Abilities, Character Errata and Clarifications, Character Reference, Team Abilities, Maps, Objects/Resources/Hordes, and finally Feats & Battlefield Conditions. No more paging through sections of extraneous information, players and judges can turn to the exact section that contains the answers they seek. Need the updated wording for a character? Head to Section 3. Wondering what the Runaways ATA does? Section 4 has the answer.

The game of HeroClix experienced a first in its 12 year history recently; game elements arose that fundamentally changed how games of Heroclix are prepared for, played, and won. These elements lead to the creation of the Heroclix Watch List, (HWL). As the details of the HWL surfaced many opinions on how to present the information to the player base were explored.  Should we add an entry to Section 1, General Information, to direct players to the HWL elements? Each game element affected by the Heroclix Watch List would be presented in its appropriate section.

The Rules Team is proud to present this document as it represents months of work, thousands of emails and the exchange of uncountable ideas and opinions. Until next time, win if you can, lose if you must, always Clix.
