Announcement from the Producer - New Banned & Restricted Cards


Lots of FFTCG Cards

Thank you for playing FFTCG. This is Tarou Kageyama, the Producer.

I have an announcement to make – we have decided to establish some banned cards and restricted cards in two formats, standard and L6 composition. The current tournament environment is greatly unbalanced, and this measure is being taken to address this issue. I apologise profusely for the inconvenience caused.

Please see below for specific information on the restrictions being implemented as part of these measures, and the reasons behind them.

Please note that the cards being banned and restricted as part of these measures can continue to be used as part of L3, single-title composition, and limited matches as they were before.

■Designation: Standard

The following cards are banned in the standard format. Not even a single copy of the card may be included in the deck.

[5-067R] Miounne

[13-120H] Doga

[14-118H] Sterne Leonis

The following cards are restricted in the standard format. Only a single copy of the card may be included in the deck.

[13-119L] Sophie

■Designation: L6 Composition

The following cards are banned in the L6 composition format. Not even a single copy of the card may be included in the deck.

[13-120H] Doga

[14-118H] Sterne Leonis

■Date of Enactment

24th December 2021

■Reason for Designation

[5-067R] Miounne

For a long time, this card was absolutely essential in elemental decks. As the card pool grew larger, her presence became ever more significant, and the card is on the verge of becoming a powerful engine that dominates the environment. Additionally, she can also become the driving force of infinite loop tricks, and has potential to be dangerous going forward. We are banning this card in the standard format so that it cannot impact the game any further.

[13-119L] Sophie

This card has a stronger than envisaged effect as a finisher in several decks, especially water and earth decks. We have set this card as a restricted card in the standard format, permitting only a single copy of this card in a deck.

[13-120H] Doga

This card is one of the foundations of earth and water decks, which hold the strongest spot in the tournament scene. [13-120H] Doga is a key card that acts as a source of draws, deals damage, and raises the power of [13-119L] Sophie. Since the card is one of the main factors behind why earth and water decks dominate the game, we are banning this card in the standard and L6 composition formats.

[14-118H] Sterne Leonis

The power of this Forward card to prevent others from catching up to it cannot be ignored in the tournament scene, and it is certain that its influence will only grow as the number of Forward types increase further in future. Therefore, we are banning this card in the standard and L6 composition formats.

Furthermore, we are keeping a particularly close eye on the following cards, identifying them as cards which have the potential to upset the balance of the tournament scene going forward.

[9-051R] Fat Chocobo

[12-097H] Syldra

[14-116H] Machérie

Once again, I apologise deeply for the inconvenience caused to all the players by these rulings on multiple cards.

Thank you for your support of FFTCG, and I hope you continue to enjoy playing the game.
