Scorched earth is a problem

I got scorched earth on day 1 (!) and now I can basically one shot everyone in negotiation the rest of the game. I think this card should be looked at. Thanks!

Yes, it can never make someone hate you. Either way, I think it's bad for gameplay because it changes the game so drastically. They will have to balance everything around scorched earth. They should rework it ASAP if you ask me!

Can it make someone hate you if the negotiation itself is supposed to make the person dislike you (like in the "collect taxes" mission from Oolo)?

I don't think so. I'll check if the opportunity arises. :)

 

You're talking about when you and that admiralty guy tell oolo that you got mugged? I love that mission lol. It's a great example of why this game is fun.

Some interesting ideas to change scorched earth:

 

Scorched earth now makes an additional random person dislike you. Scorched earth can't be used against anyone that hates or dislikes you. Every time scorched earth is drawn it does 1 less damage.

Maybe something like removes a random non hostile card per argument you have  and then deals the 2 damage per card removed. Then it would need more to get going then just being played when you know you can win.
