L5R.Cards and the High Fate Meta

Jun 27 2018 04:00 PM | JoeFromCincinnati in Articles



Will Lentz has created a new website for L5R! It is a part "content aggregation," part original content website. As part of this start up, he asked me to write an article for him, to which I happily obliged.




In this article, I discuss the "high fate meta" that we are currently embroiled in. With the number of new cards that affect fate on characters, attachments offering so much value and with so few ways to reliably kill single large target characters, this meta was inevitable and I go into more detail in the article linked below. I hope you enjoy! :D

Promise of Power (A Collective Rating of the Ra...

Jun 26 2018 04:00 PM | JoeFromCincinnati in Articles

With the restricted list having been out for some time now and with the next cycle of 6×6 around the corner Mind's Desire thought of a cool thought exercise on each clan’s accepted “power” and where that power comes from. Mind’s Desire, Bayushi Nomen, Chuteréve and Joe from Cincinnati go over each clan’s power based on four base criteria: Dynasty Deck, Conflict Deck, Province Row and Stronghold out of Ten. All opinions are our own and are not the end all be all of how to view these topics.

Jun 11 2018 12:00 AM | Majestaat in Articles

Inquisitors in jet black armors and ridiculous helicopter sabers strike from the shadows to enforce the Emperor's will, while the Navy's TIE fighters and Star Destroyers keep the different systems in check.

And beware the cold-hearted droids. Turns out they can be just as devious as any meatbag.

This is the last Star Wars LCG has to offer.

Why Did Scorpion And Crab Win Every Kotei: A Wr...

May 31 2018 05:00 AM | JoeFromCincinnati in Articles

Okay, even for me 3 articles in 10 days is a lot (though one was actually Mirith/Chris Morano’s not mine ;) ), I promise to take at least a week break before posting something else. But I felt it was important to get this article out before this weekend because, once a Kotei occurs in the Restricted List Meta, this article becomes less relevant (even less than it is now). BUT, I wrote this article to examine why Crab and Scorpion won every single Kotei in the Pre-Restricted List Meta. If anyone has any interest as to what my theory is, click the link below! :D
