No shelter from the... Celestial Storm coming on August 3rd, 2018 and more on:
The Real News
Hello and welcome everyone, my name is Therial Bagg and i am your host today.
Since the disappearance of the only person that was actually communicating with the players, TPCI_Samhayne aka the Senior Producer Alex Leary, interaction between the developers and the players has gone on a limbo.
Some believe that his decision to step down from his position was a result of a constant conflict between him and a toxic player that kept ranting on the forums.
Officials are denying this claim and refused to comment further on this issue.
An official statement has yet to be released on a possible replacement, a situation that has raised some concerned whispers among the players with some being really pessimistic about PTCGO's future.
As this was not enough, the development team has been taking a series of controversial decisions regarding the rewards of the Versus Ladder, rewarding the players' efforts with Booster Packs, EX Cards and Full Art Trainer Cards from previous eras such as their latest choice of Furious Fists set instead of something from the current rotation.
Experts claim that this is a part of a rotation plan in which all current modes (except Theme Decks) are getting boosted with rewards in order to maintain stability.
All this situation is met with mixed reaction as some players are cheering and looking forward for more while others are strongly against it.
On August 3rd, 2018 Celestial Storm is scheduled for release including cards like Articuno-GX, Blaziken-GX, Scizor-GX, Stakataka-GX and Rayquaza-GX, plus new Prism Star Cards featuring Latios, Latias, and Jirachi.
This Expansion includes over 160 cards, 3 Prism Star Cards, 11 Pokémon-GX, 3 Ultra Beasts, 27 Trainer Cards and Rainbow Energy.
There are also reports about a Sceptile Theme Deck and a Swampert Theme Deck which are both yet to be confirmed after there was a leak of their corresponding box art on various fansites.
The complete Sun & Moon - Celestial Storm Expansion will be available to play in the Pokémon TCG Online when the expansion launches.
I just received a report from an anonymous source that the user The_Real_Bug has announced that he will be discontinuing The Real Rant series.
His motives for taking such a decision are not yet known, but the same anonymous source claimed that he stated off the record that he feels responsible for causing an early retirement of a specific TPCI staff member.
The latter part of this report should be taken with a pinch of salt.
Thank you everyone for joining me today, i am Therial Bagg and this was The Real News.
