Good Day my fellow Wanderers.
It has been a little bit since we’ve last seen each other. This is partially my fault due to my busy personal life. It worked out that the world of Force of Will was essentially quite dull as well.
Nothing… *cricket noises*
Still no official word on what has happened to Jordan and the Q&A. My sources have told me there was some debacle with the new Ashen Snow White card and its art being used that has Jordan on the FoWCo shit list. Apparently, they wanted to change it but Jordan spoiled prior to printing. Again this is all second-hand information so this could all be nothing. Just word on the street is all.
Unfortunately, he is still not back and so no Q&A again this week.
Last week and again this week, FoWCo announced a couple of card errata. Starting off with the Lapis last week and then Wukong this week. Wukong, Sun Wukong, Enforcer for the Future he has been updated to the following:
When this card enters your field ⇒ [[You may]] return target non-magic stone, non-J/resonator card to its owner’s hand.
When this card enters your field ⇒ Return target non-magic stone, non-J/resonator card to its owner’s hand.
We also got an erratum for the RDE Lapris, Gill Lapis, Rebel of Darkest Fires. See below:
[X]: You may play target face up card with total cost X or less from your opponent’s removed area without paying its cost until end of turn. Play this ability only once per turn.
[X]: You may play a face up card with total cost X or less from your opponent’s removed area without paying its cost until end of turn. Play this ability only once per turn.
FOW MASTERS EVENT
So if you have been in and around the US Facebook group or even Reddit you may have heard about the unfortunate incident that occurred at the 2017 Masters event in Vegas. I won’t delve into too much detail but needless to say, there was an incident that both ruined the event for a player, as well as possibly the reputation of the company.
There’s a lot of information coming from every side of the FoW community, yet the company has yet to release an official statement. Robert Herbert who handles the majority, if not all, of the US tournament scene, has commented and you can read his post in the US Facebook page. It is pinned at the top.
The player has since deleted his original post about what happened both on Reddit and FB. Based on his actions in response to the event, during the event, and later thru Social Media, he has received a Lifetime ban. This is not a good scenario for all involved.
This is all we will say until there is an official announcement.
FLOOR RULES CHANGE
Based on the events mentioned above it seems that FoWCo has updated the Floor Rules for large tournaments and penalties. You can read thru the full PDF at the link below.
WORLD GRAND PRIX
At the time of this posting, the Force of Will World Grand Prix is currently underway. Unfortunately, this article needs to go up before a world champion can be crowned. Keep an eye out on GrinningRemnant for further news about the WGP (as well as an exclusive tournament report from one of our insiders in the event).
You may have noticed a brief stall in content on GrinningRemnant over the past two weeks. Our editor-in-chief Alex was on vacation and was delayed a few extra days due to Hurricane Irma. Now that he’s back, we can get your regularly scheduled content flowing once more!
