FOW News! Erratas, Will Power Rewards, Promo, and More!
September 12, 2018

Quite a bit to go over so here we go!
In case you missed it, the official CR came out updated! There were a lot of changes in it, if you’d like to see them all be sure to check out our video from last week where Joey and Colin discuss all the changes HERE
The main highlights are as follows:
Runes are color locked to whatever color the Ruler is! Rune/Chants can be put in whatever deck you’d like though.
You CAN NOT sideboard Runes. You have to use whatever is in your Rune Deck at the start.
The keyword ‘Eternal’ applies to all old resonators and abilities that say ‘Cannot be destroyed’.
Master Runes are considered Runes while on the chase (This is important when applied to Hanzo’s Master Rune)
Those are the main points at least. Be sure to check out the video or the official CR to make sure you are ready going forward!
With those updates came a bunch of card erratas! There wasn’t necessarilly anything game changing, mostly grammatical errors, or errors in translation that could lead to misunderstanding. Also a couple weird typing errors. We went into detail on the podcast, but below are the before and after changes for the cards:
If damage would be dealt to target J/resonator you control this turn, it’s dealt to your opponent instead.

Put [+100/+100] counters equal to the combined total cost of cards removed this way on this card. Put the rest into your graveyard. (When this card enters the field ? Perform the effect.)

WILL POWER REWARDS SIGN UP:
The form to fill out for you Will Power Rewards is live! Make sure you go and fill that out ASAP. I attached pictures above to show you where to go in the app to fill out the form. You’ll get an email confirmation after you fill it out telling you your rank and confirming your information.
BE SURE TO FILL OUT EVERYTHING FULLY AND CORRECTLY. Just double check your address etc. It’s inconvenient for yourself and everybody involved if you just rush through the form without double checking and mess up. Good luck to everyone though on getting those rewards in!
RIP CASTER PLAYERS:
So we recently found out what the WillPower Rewards were going to be for Force of Will. Now people were wondering how they were going to handle Caster Chronicles. Casters used identical code cards for the app in order to get the WP Rewards after all, and many of them don’t play FOW. Well since the sign up just happened we have unofficially found out! They get…Nothing!
There was no option when filling out the form to select which game you played, and no distinction in placement on what type of codes you might have scanned in. It’s super unfortunate but it honestly feels like the company doesn’t care about Caster players currently. Hopefully that changes but for now, oh well.
CHASE CARDS REVEALED:
We have not gotten confirmation that these are actually the chase cards or not, but it’s assumed they are. These were seen during a stream FOW did in Japan where they opened a booster box of the new set. In that were these 2 alt art cards. It’s interesting because during Jeff’s QandA he pointed out that the new chase cards would be more rare than before.
The old chase cards were guaranteed 1 per box and this stream pulled 2 in a box. This might mean it follows similar ratios to rulers in the last couple sets, where you might get 2, 1, or 0 rulers per box completely at random. It’ll be cool to get confirmation of the ratios and what the remaining chase cards are.
WORLD GRAND PRIX PRIZING:
So it was revealed what the prizing for the WGP is this year, and surprisingly it is different than in years past! In addition to the normal prizing and other things you can see above, you also get boxes of each release for the remainder of the cluster. I thought that was a really cool idea and it just adds that value and retention to the competition. They are also re introducing the bingo giveaway with prizing (which I believe was absent last year) as well as T-Shirts! Lots of stuff to look forward to.
STARTER DECK PROMO:
They revealed the promo card that comes with the starter decks when you buy them above! Looks really cool, so be sure to keep an eye out for that, and hopefully distributors don’t horde it from your local scene.
Pre release is coming up! If you haven’t already, be sure to talk to your locals about getting a kit to hold a pre-release event! It will be taking place the weekend of the 21st (1 week prior to the set being released). There is lots of cool stuff to look forward to, including the prizing above!
We also started a giveaway! This giveaway will last one week. We are giving away 3 (already opened HERE) starter decks for Warhammer Champions TCG! This will also include 1 holo rare card as well. If you are a Patron and win, you will also get the playmat in the separate Patreon giveaway we’ll be doing as well! To enter into the starter deck giveaway click HERE. The playmat giveaway you are already automatically entered in if you are a Patron.
RULER SCHOOL TAKEOVER WEEK:
Lastly, as was the case last year, while Jeremy is at worlds he will be doing Takeover week on his channel Ruler School. This is where different FOW creators guest host a video on his channel. TCGScrubs will have a bonus Podcast that week so be on the lookout for that! Team ARG will have a video as well.
That’s all the news for today. Thanks for reading!
