View Full Version : Gwaer's spoiler!

When presented with an opportunity to spoil a card I turned down the legendary offered to me, and instead requested this card. When I was at the HXE office last time it was right before the set 2 launch, we got to see a good bit of what was coming with set two, but I also got to playtest a bit of set three that they were developing. I saw this guy, and I saw they had named the set 2 one rotting, even though set 1 was rigid... So I spent a good several minutes. Maybe half an hour looking up a potential different word for rotting, for set 2, and settled on fetid, which worked very well with the art I thought. Unfortunately it was just too close to release of set two and it was already being localized, so they didn't have time to change rotting to fetid. Even though I suggested just keeping it localized the same in all other languages and just have fetid be the English name, I pushed very hard... Maybe I should have offered to pay to have rotting buffalo re-localized. Heck I even felt this was an important enough issue to delay set two for. =P

Sadly, and to my eternal shame this is where I failed you as a community. If I had been at the CZE offices a week earlier, then this tragedy could have been averted. Without further ado... Here it is.... The proof of my inability to conquer the most important and terrible problem of our time. Rip - Fetid Buffalo, your glory was never realized.

5 color buffalo new meta! :O Maybe make it, so if you have all 5 buffalo in play you get super mega ultimate rainbow buffalo.

Indeed. I expect we'll see all the colors of buffalo before long. Perhaps even a buffalo buffalo buffalo buffalo, which is truly my dream.

Bah, Gwaer has all the mighty connections! I'd love to do a spoiler someday.

Too bad I ran out of time for my fansite... And my PC couldn't handle streaming anymore... I guess my last chance to to charm someones pants off!

I just want a quick action that will buff a buffalo and the flavour text to say "did I stutter?"

Fred
06-05-2015, 12:38 PM
Set 1 was Rigid
Set 2 was Rotting

If set 3 is Frigid
Will set 4 be Frotting?

Does Entrath really need a Frotting Buffalo? It could be Frothing, but is that really that much better?

JohnDruitt

So HYPED for set 3 now. Cant wait for ruby one in set 4!

Gwaer is actually OBSESSED with Buffalo naming at this point. We've had more conversations about it than any other topic... ;)

Is it offensive to have a differently oriented buffalo by the name of "Flaming Buffalo"? Because that would be very amusing for me. :p
