    great just went out and bought rb4 and all the dumb gadgets to play on xbox...
    Welcome to the family! We're almost six months out from when that comment was made, and Rock Band is still going strong! We just finished the first Season in the new Rivals Seasons mode, we just dropped 83 new missions into the game last Thursday, we just dropped two free songs for Rivals owners last week, with two more coming this week, Season 2 starts in nine days, and we've still got new DLC hitting the store every week.

    I wouldn't worry about your purchase. Thanks for joining us, and enjoy the game. :)

    There's actually no DLC this week, we're not trying to throw you off by only posting it here. We're waiting on some details to settle for something else before we make broader announcements.

    very easy
    If you think Dr. Erman didn't put brute force restrictions in her website, you sorely underestimated her.

    Do the recent reductions in workforce at Harmonix change the outlook for Dropmix at all?
    Not in the slightest.
    Is there a worldwide release or US only?
    Yep, it'll be global!
    Same here, i will buy it as I like card / board games and music, but so far I don't understand how the scoring works. Had difficulties to understand the explanation in video due to the beat :wink: HMX should at some point in time explain this step by step, so that older generations get it :smiley:
    Relatively simple breakdown:
    • You get one point for every card you play.
    • You get a bonus point if you play a color that isn't already in the mix (If you play a wild and fill two unfilled colors, that's two bonus points).
    • You get a bonus point if you have the full mix (All five cards in play are yours).
    • Some FX cards can give you bonus points, either by letting you play extra cards or if you meet certain criteria (e.g. Play a synth card or +1 point if you have a blue card in play)
    • You lose a point if your cards are removed from play via the Equalizer or an FX card (This only affects when cards are removed from the board. Playing over a card doesn't make them lose points.
  • Re: Deck customization?

    Yep! Preconstructed decks exist for the same reason starter decks are included in Magic. They'll have a good distribution of colors and power levels, with a couple wilds and FX cards mixed in, so you can start playing right away.

    That said, if you want to take construction into your own hands, you absolutely can. Mix and match from the starter decks, or include cards from the Playlist and Discover Packs, which will have some really interesting FX cards in them (not to mention more great songs).
