Hey everybody! The DBZ TCG keeps rolling along, and there is so much more to come. Organized Play details will be revealed as soon as humanly possible, and the prize support might surprise you. Furthermore, the CRD will also be available to download on Monday – thanks for your patience! Aside from that, you can also look forward to the first bits of information about the next expansion set. . .
Before we get to the reader submissions, congratulations to WordPress users “Jonathan” and “brokenscouter”: both of these individuals were randomly chosen as winners of last week’s contest and will receive a box of Heroes & Villains – enjoy! Thanks to everyone who wrote in, and know that your opinions were all read and appreciated. Check back in the future for similar promotions, and next time the lucky winner might be you!
“The rulebook states that anyone trained under a Namekian may use the Namekian Style. Does this include Goku, Tenshinhan, and Krillin as they were trained under Kami?”
The only current MPs that use Namekian Knowledge Mastery are Piccolo, Gohan, and Nail. There are other eligible candidates that might be released in future sets, and they will be more clearly defined in the rulebook.
“Will characters/events from the movies will be utilized in the card game? If so, will they be in booster sets?”
-Daniel L. from Georgia
Movie characters will indeed show up in future sets, perhaps even sooner than you think…
“As the cards progress, how will the AT be affected?”
-Clay & Amanda P. from Kentucky
In the old DBZ CCG, new brackets for the attack table were a frequent occurrence. This time around, a lot of consideration was put into the long term implications of AT ranges. You’ll notice that some characters drop down several brackets as they approach zero stages. This is one way of balancing characters with extremely high power stages, rather than new characters being in F at one stage above zero.
In the next set, the AT will remain the same and we will try to keep it so as long as possible.
That’s all for this week, and thanks again to everyone who entered last week’s contest. You can have your questions or comments addressed here by sending an email with “MAILBAG” in the title to firstname.lastname@example.org. As usual, I’ll close things out with the question of the week:
With information about the next set trickling out, what are you most excited to see in the upcoming expansion?
