You know what's funny? Lupos. Let me rephrase that, Lupos' attempt at comedy on Friday was funny. It's funny on alot of levels too. For one, the act of not being funny being actually very funny is quite a feat. We should commend him because I know I can't do it. I'm just always funny. It's a fact. Like Cheerios. Cheerios are a fact. Oh and rankings too. Rankings are a fact on Monday.

1st place: GeNeSiZ (Falkow)

2nd place: Artist (Gowen)

Runner ups:

3rd alvisto (Falkow)
4th Keran (Gowen)
5th Keladry (Lawtia) & Crematia (Gowen)

Nice job everyone!  Hopefully we'll get another Starter Tourney in a month or so. Also, I highly recommend you all go to the FORUM THREAD on this tournament and check out some of the videos for all those of you with Starters or Modified Starters. It's a good way to get some ideas.

First things first, big congrats to our top Iczer for set 4, Galandros. Quite a feet. I'd love to have something clever or amusing like those HILARIOUS EdgarFigaro posts *coughsarcasmcaugh* but it's late in the day and I've got to rush out the door so you'll have to settle for my subtle jabs at EdgarNotFunnygaros humor.

For those too lazy to go look our top 5 are as follows

Ranking Iczer Name  Rating Points Max Rating Points

1 Galandros 2137 2188

So that's it, gotta run. Big Congratulations again to all those who ranked.

EdgarFigaro isn't funny. 

P.S.  Will fix the name formatting monday. Not sure why that happened.

Set 5 PR
Written by Logress   
Friday, 28 August 2009 22:03

I know this isn't anything like news to our site regulars at this point, but everything's all happy with Set 5 now, so it's time for the OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE!





Set 5 is here! An all new card set expansion based around theme Files.  New cards make all kinds of theme Files possible using cards from previous sets, while new File types can be created just with Set 5 Cards!

The battle for the Holy Realm reaches a new level with the arrival of smarter command model Magic Dolls, who cut through the enemy forces. Then the army of the Shrine Knights arrive, rallying to the cause of Folrart. Caught in between, Rivera realizes her destiny of the Beast King and releases her true power! But the great battle shakes the walls of the Holy Realm shrine, awakening something beyond the gate.  The final gate guardian appears in a nimbus of light that envelops the battlefield. Will anything remain when the smoke clears?

  • 60 new cards! 15 in each Sphere of influence, including new Characters, Units and Grimoires!
  • Set 5 Packs and Set 5 Boxes are available in the Shop, at the same price as Set 1, 2, 3 and 4 Packs and Boxes.
  • Set 5 Cards are available in the Card Lottery.
  • Set 5 Cards are available in Treasure Battles, and for Level Up Cards.
  • Enough cards to play all new file types with only set 5 cards! Help each other out with Shrine Knights, exploit your troops with Magic Doll Command Units, control the field with Ice magic and live forever with the Undead!
  • New Status abilities let you break the rules, with skill effects that were not possible in earlier sets!
  • Bestow Traits on your allies, gain extra Skills when Counters are triggered, and enjoy immunity to Grimores and Soul Skills!
  • Classic play styles get new options, with more ways to change Battletime, get bonuses for Grimoires used, and more options for Solar Kingdom, Mermaids and Crest.
  • Art by Rei (Code Geass Manga), Masaki Hirooka (Culdcept Saga, Sonic and the Secret Rings), Kazuno Yuikawa (Aquarian Age, Ragnarok Online), and many more!
