  1. Namekian Restored & Saiyan Empowered are Frozen

    But then you have to waste room on those instead of fun cards... Granted, that's only competitively but still. Nobody likes putting Wall Breaker-like silver bullets in their deck. It's simply an unfortunate and necessary evil.
  2. Namekian Restored & Saiyan Empowered are Frozen

    So this will be the CRD discussion thread then? They didn't change Dr Brief to include Kid Trunks. Hoping that's an oversight because he really should.
  3. Namekian Restored & Saiyan Empowered are Frozen

    https://fanztcg.wordpress.com/rulebook-crd/ While I digged playing Restored, at this point people are just tired of these two dominating. With these freezings and the Future Gohan change, it'll be interesting to see what does well though I would've liked to see the results of such changes this year with all the stagnant meta complaints. With the new set, people who simply played the meta this year will have to try new things.
  4. FanZ Set 10 - "Revelation"

    Since they're not modified humans or don't contain human parts like 17, 18, and 20, no.
  5. FanZ Set 10 - "Revelation"

    Lots of spelling errors... Are there nerfs on Ginyu? I thought they just added the Saiyan and Namekian traits to 3 and 4 respectively.
  6. FanZ Set 10 - "Revelation"

    https://fanztcg.wordpress.com/revelation-checklist/ Still need the CRD. Also, no Piccolo named card(s)
  7. FanZ Set 10 - "Revelation"

    I'm in the same boat on GT. It has some horrendous faults but I feel like I'm willing to give it more of a pass when it comes to good ideas, bad execution than Super. Simply because some of the story concepts are that good. At this point the negative word of mouth and its bad reputation over the years has kept people from touching it and anything attached to it. I really hope they replace movie sets with GT. I'm still not the biggest fan of GT but considering there's no loss of profit for doing it, unless the designers themselves are also "haters" who refuse to work with the material, it's close-minded players missing out on potential cards. Regarding Dende, I wish he brought allies back from the discard but since Shenron took that effect... Thematically Dende's effect doesn't make much sense. Healing's different from giving a power up. If anything such an effect makes more sense for Old Kai or Guru.
  8. FanZ Set 10 - "Revelation"

    Great, now you put the idea in my head of a Pan stack in Super where it's just pictures of Videl's stomach and Videl's stomach with aura eventually leveling up into a baby. But then we can get a Piccolo, Babysitter/Godfather ally!
  9. FanZ Set 10 - "Revelation"

    Oh I'm sure it's planned at this point in time. I just worded it that way because you never know if (god forbid) Fan Z will even be a thing by then. By random estimation, the Tournament of Power is over ten sets away depending on how they divide up Buu, the remaining movies, and Super. When it comes to extending a card game's life, I don't know why anyone would outright consider GT taboo. I suppose we're lucky (or unlucky) that we have a new addition of the franchise to make sets out of, but to limit yourself when there's a technical wealth of potential sets is silly. Though I guess the hate for GT IS that bad for some people they'd probably stop playing because of it.
  10. FanZ Set 10 - "Revelation"

    It comes down to if they do Uub and the end of Z or go straight to Super after Kid Buu's defeat. Though I don't see why they'd skip to Super. An entire Pan stack based on her Z appearance would be strange but possible. Bad news if you specifically wanted GT Pan. If they get to current events, you'll get 17 from Super but no Super 17.
  11. FanZ Set 10 - "Revelation"

    I know how I feel about it. Didn't take me a millisecond. That's exactly how it should be. I'm glad they listened to the players and are willing to change that nonsensical decision. Now we don't have Gohan overload and I welcome the next Gohan stack/level over thinking he has too many options. I love the flavor of Kid Trunks' focus on skipping while Awakening Vegeta involved passing. Kind of like how Goten is the new Drillku. I was going to say his level 2's attack seemed costly, but in Orange his Quickness Drill being styled and tutorable helps a lot with that. Huge loss if your opponent gets rid of it though... While I welcome a new Bulma ally, I wish she had a different power. I can't say it's a worse Trunks ally because their timings are different but on the power alone, Trunks seems to be the better option and nobody plays him. Not seeing the flavor in her having a similar power to Trunks except parentage, but the parenthetical makes her great for energy beats.
  12. FanZ Set 10 - "Revelation"

    Not sure why his level 1 doesn't have 3 PUR. Obvious uses in Black with the discard effects. The level 4's second power is kind of underwhelming unless you get there really early. Hope he gets a new named card that isn't too specific in its uses.
  13. How much do you care about Fan Z now?

    Does it have more to do with too many staples/essentials within styles or lack of archetype cards? Because the way it is archetype cards give the already good cards within a style a direction to go which is how it should be. I definitely agree with your grievance though. When I'm deckbuilding unless there's a hard restriction like Hercule not being able to use energy attacks, it's hard to avoid the time-tested staples within a style. A lot of this has to do with the copy/paste cards in set 1 they took from Score. They're too good. You'll never not see some of these stupid things and you'd be wrong to leave them out of your build. Not that I necessarily agree with the idea, but perhaps what you're looking for is set rotation.
  14. FanZ Set 10 - "Revelation"

    https://fanztcg.wordpress.com/2017/11/07/goten-son-of-goku/ Drillku lives on!... in his son.
  15. Named cards you want to see?

    There's a Master Roshi's Kamehameha in Fan Z. I don't have any ideas for what these cards would do, but... Goku's Spirit Bomb needed to be a thing forever ago A styled Trunks' Burning Attack Gohan's Father-Son Kamehameha? Sounds weird but that's what it is Hercule's Poisoned Chocolates/Exploding Video Game/Victory Photo Vegeta's Big Bang Attack - Japan can screw off for Destruction Blast. There's a screenshot in Kid Buu we can use to make it happen Piccolo's Hellzone Grenade/Light Grenade - Focused Ball wasted a perfect screenshot
  16. FanZ Set 10 - "Revelation"

    I never said 18 was good card design and while I may have come off as liking it, it was more out of her getting her due. Nothing I said was incorrect. The original 18 was definitely bad card design. Why any designer thought she'd be remotely playable is beyond me. There were just these tiny fixes that could've made her so much more solid. Level 1 letting you choose to redraw. Level 2 not randomly missing her 0 damage attack. God knows I've tried to make her work and while my win rate wasn't 0%, it was always an uphill battle. I really like Fan Z's 2 they gave her but she desperately needed a new 1 as well.
  17. FanZ Set 10 - "Revelation"

    While Videl was card design that I liked, 18 definitely goes beyond face value. I can definitely see her doing well. So nice to finally have a good attack target for Toss.
  18. Super Dash Promos Revealed

    All the more reason they should've been box toppers. Can't cheat you out of them if they're in a sealed box.
  19. FanZ Set 10 - "Revelation"

    I like her from a design standpoint but if we're being real here her 1 and 2 aren't very good unless you play many anger cards and the AT=3 on 2 is enough stage beatdown. She doesn't actually start doing anything until 3 and even then there are plenty of decks those effects do nothing against unless she's going for DBV. I don't play mill but I don't think camping 2 will make a good mill deck out of her especially since you have to lead with her power to buff your mills. Her 4 is a fantastic reason to play her which is also a reason not to play her. I guess I'm making an argument for keeping Unleashed around... "Justice" Kick feels really meh considering it has no applications outside of her effects and named cards unless of course there are new "this is considered named" cards in this set that let you choose effects. Are there any in set 1-9? For a named card it should've given you 2 anger. Determination feels like one of those cards that sounds great but not worth the deck space. It'd be perfect if it made your opponent pass. At least it replaces itself. Keep in mind this is all at face value. Time well tell but Krillin seemed more impressive. I hope someone proves me wrong. I'd love for Videl to do well.
  20. FanZ Set 10 - "Revelation"

    Why isn't the rejuvenation on the Orange Mastery styled only? Did they think it was Orange's turn to abuse Time? For a "Combative" mastery it really seems to be stally and defensive. Not sure how Oppressive Saiyan will be but there's finally a combat-based Saiyan Mastery. Broly doesn't need it but it's a welcome change from three Masteries with some form of leveling.
  21. FanZ Set 10 - "Revelation"

    I'll need more time to process these Masteries, but what exactly does this Blue Mastery have to do with Frieza unless he gets a named styled Drill/Setup that works with it? Deleveling my opponent with Unleashed because Frieza uses Unleashed? There would have be a lot of new Blue cards to fill in the holes for this Mastery to specficially make Blue Frieza more than a fun deck.
  22. Super Dash Promos Revealed

    The problem is both. If they weren't unique and scarce, it'd more acceptable though still disappointing. BECAUSE they're unique, it's a pain that they're not available. It doesn't matter if you have to have them. Why do they have to inherently cheat consumers from having them? Why is it good business that every set their customers have to worry if they'll get the new tournament promos or "dash" packs. If you don't dash to your store release day before they run out, tough luck. If your store didn't get any, tough luck. These stupid things should've been box toppers. Yeah, you have to buy a box for two over the option of twelve packs for one, but at least you're guaranteed them inside the box. Why is it a good idea to leave it up to distributors to short whatever store they want or insert x other reason stores won't get any? Panini seemed to understand the concept of (almost) no exclusive promos and box toppers to their benefit. It's not like box toppers are a foreign concept for Japanese card games either so what's the problem?
  23. Pan/Fan Z and not fleshing out archetypes

    You can also look at Tim Batow's Dynamic Raditz that won Gen Con but it runs Ultras. https://fanztcg.wordpress.com/2017/09/10/gencon-decklists/
  24. FanZ Set 10 - "Revelation"

    Are you serious or are you jabbing the Fan Z team for not wording it that way? So you're assuming that effect is second to garbage and doesn't stop TIme then?
  25. FanZ Set 10 - "Revelation"

    Even if you can assume it stops Time because it makes sense, couldn't they have just worded it as "Cards that stop all physical AND/OR energy attacks cannot be used this combat"? It clears up any confusion instantly.
