aka the Kono Suba praise post (except not really, I promise)
Part 1 can be found here. Once again, thank you for all of your suggestions!
Subtitled “Just an opinion though” so no one gets their panties in a twist.
A week or two ago, I was asked about what I think English Weiss Schwarz needs the most compared to the Japanese format. It was just a random question from a friend at locals, but it got me thinking for a while. We’ve talked before about what sets or cards we still wish would get translated and I think they were really just expecting me to name some strong JP sets that haven’t yet been translated or released in English – but personally, that’s not what I think would make EN significantly different in terms of the game. What I miss the most in English Weiss Schwarz are sets meant for fun; troll sets that could probably never be competitive but are just as endearing to play because of their unique mechanics. Why is it that JP gets those, but EN doesn’t?
A while ago, I made a thread on the WS subreddit discussing what cards have the weirdest or the funniest effects. It was just a curiosity thing at first, but seeing that there were so many good ones mentioned, I’ve decided to combine the Reddit picks and my own into a single post – hopefully, everyone reading this will find at least one card that’ll make you go “Wait… it does what??!”
2017 EDIT: There’s now part 2 of this post with even more cards – check it out here!
