  1. Where was the initial information you're summarizing posted?
  2. Missed that line. Hopefully it'll mean more down the road, then.
  3. Playmat and honor dial are nice additions, everything else feels very same-y. Also the whole "Battle for the Stronghold" idea could have been more fleshed out, I feel. Like okay, if X clan does best at this store, they can try and get the owners to put a couple posters up? Sure, I guess, but so what? Maybe stories of Old5R story prizes spoiled me a bit, but I wish local level tournaments and events had more impact/novelty than what FFG has given us thus far.
  4. Wow, they didn't waste any time announcing that. Really interesting to see that this isn't a deluxe box, and is also priced accordingly. No idea on release date yet? Also holy crud, Fushichō is something else. Arguably the best Charge! target there is.
  5. This is an awesome breakdown. Really cool to see everyone's match-ups highlighted like that. I was pretty shocked to see Crab win in the end, but if you look at Pablo's games, 4 out of 5 were against Lion, which makes me wonder if a lot of it had to do with a favourable schedule (asides from what I assume was masterful playing). Were the games streamed?
  6. I have no idea what The Lost refers to, so I must have missed something!
  7. Also what are the chances the Mantis becoming a Great Clan turns out to be a story decision at Worlds/a Grand Kotei? I have no O5R background, so I honestly don't know how integral Mantis are and whether a decision like that could be made by players.
  8. Looks like FFG might be adding Mantis to the game earlier than a lot of people thought. I was perusing 4chan the other week looking for spoilers, and someone who seemed fairly reputable said the first big box expansion would be Phoenix, followed by Mantis. Don't know if it's true, but the way the fiction has been going makes it seem plausible.
  9. Always happy to see more cheap shugenja for the fire chickies. Are the only two characters with the scholar trait the Naive Student and the Solemn Scholar at this point, though? Even with the seal that doesn't seem to promote much synergy.
  10. Wait, so they just reprinted a Greyjoy card and gave it to Crab?
  11. Water shugenja pushes the aggro Phoenix theme that seems to be happening. All of these seem like plausible cards; just wish we had pics for confirmation.
  12. Entirely possible, just very unlikely. But the fact that it is possible suggests that it's a viable win condition/deck consideration. You might not win on turn one every game (or ever), but the pieces exist to win on the turn after that, or the turn after that, or...
  13. Don't wanna get ahead of myself, but I think WotCh makes honor running viable, if not wholly competitive. Lion and Crane seem like the logical picks, probably the former more than the latter for the reasons listed above + the new character just spoiled that'll help push through Air and Fire ring challenges.
