For me, it's been hardcopy since early '93. The only time I ever use online is when I buy a fg product and need to download it. Others use online and I respect that. But I don't play online much at all because things can go terribly wrong with servers. Regardless of how I think about it, Filsinger Games has always done their very best for customers everywhere. I'm basically old school, but cotg has always been my personal favorite.
One thing I do like about online vs hardcopy is not having to worry about damage....but on the other hand I do like pulling out the dice at times. It's why I'm probably one of the few who plays both quite a bit.
When I received the first CAC set, the cards were terribly warped. So naturally I sent an email of complaint to Tom and he sent back a fast response promising to replace the cards with a new set. Outstanding FG customer service.
That was the one and only time in 15 years that my cards arrived in less than great condition. If somebody's cards are always damaged, it must be the carrier.

Lots of great insight here. Thanks for the great responses.
I'm leaning toward sticking with online, but I may try a few physical sets as well. For you guys that do online, how do you make managers work (I can't figure out how to add them to a match.) Also, do you use any resources or game aids that you'd be willing to share?
I’m picky w cards too, as I used to collect cards n comics as a kid. I own almost every single color card on the site & I’ve never had a card come beaten up. There’s nothing like opening that FG package and looking at the cards. Something about holding them in your hands that’s nice.
I have never personally played the game online but I am definitely glad that option exists for those here who prefer to play that way.
I have always used cards. I just like playing with the cards and I just roll the dice right on top of them as I have all my color cards protected inside toploader protector sleeves. I also play with the cards I got autographed with no concerns as they are protected in their sleeves.
I think in general I just prefer games with cards in hand vs a video version. For example, when I used to play blackjack at the casinos I preferred playing at the tables with the cards in my hand instead of the electronic version of the game at the casino bar.
