Alright so we had Worlds happen, among other things so let’s get into it! If you’d like to see the results of the WGP, be sure to check it out on our website in the ‘Top 8’ section!
.
APOLOGIES FOR THE SPACING ISSUES. NOT SURE WHY IT’S NOT WORKING 🙁
.
.
WGP LOOT:
.
.
So there was a lot of cool stuff both given to competitors, and won by competitors at Worlds. I thought it’d be cool to showcase some of that here! Just for anybody curious.

SO MANY QUESTIONS:
.
.
So there were some open ended questions we are coming into contact with, so I’ll put them into this question section!

.
.
First,
what happened to that giveaway for Starter Decks? Remember? When they announced New Valhalla, they had that website you could go to, fill out a form, and be entered into a drawing to win some (or all) of the starters. Well we haven’t heard about that since. If there was a winner, not only have we not seen anything from said winner, but the company never followed up to say who won. Kind of weird and I’d be curious to see what’s going on with that.
.
.
Secondly,
more starter deck issues? So it looks like we possibly have some more printer issues. There have been reports of burnt edging, incorrect quantities of cards, and more. Some decks might have 5 of one card, and 3 of another that should have been 4 and 4. Some people said they didn’t get Master Runes, and more. Our starter deck opening showed at minimum there is no rhyme or reason to where cards are in the deck (as far as matching up with the correct mini deck and ruler, etc). Jeff was alerted to this yesterday, so hopefully we’ll find out what is going on.
.
.
Lastly,
sort of random but no official postings on the WGP winner? We know who won, and I think the top 8 was posted to the FOW website. However, usually for some GP’s and especially for Worlds FOW will make a Facebook post congratulating the winner etc. In fact, if you look at FOW’s Facebook, it really hasn’t been active in a while now. Not sure what’s going on, but just another open ended question there.
.
.
SECRET RARES AND UBERS:
.
.
So it looks like we got final confirmation on what is going on here. There looks to be only 3 Secret Rare cards in this set. That is a bit unfortunate considering we have no Rulers, no guaranteed cards in a box, and now we don’t even have all 5 colors for a card you could possibly pull. I love blue from the new set, so I have no motivation to try digging for those Secret Rares. They are still awesome looking cards, just a bit unfortunate I think.
.
Also looks like there are no Ubers. This is the first set since the introduction of that rarity to not have Ubers. We aren’t quite sure why that is, and where we could see them pop up again. It brings that question up of what is going to make these boxes valuable long term? There are only 3 high rarity cards to pull, and they are random and don’t really cover a variety of decks/colors. We’ll see what happens though, I feel it’d be better if this was all cleared up for us so we can better evaluate if this is actually a really good thing for this set etc.

VOTING RESULTS:
.
.
There was a poll held almost 2 weeks ago asking people’s opinions on the new Rulers. The full article is HERE (since it wasn’t shared on their Facebook). But if you are curious, here is the top answer to each question:
.
What are your favorite New Valhalla Rulers?
.
Isis/ Isis, the Hundred Weapon Master
.
.
What ruler do you think will win WGP 2018?
.
Brunhild/ Brunhild, Caller of Spirits
.
.
Just a little fun information to have.

.
