In the descriptions they gave us, there there was no blast. Just landing behind and no reaction from the enemy. I think we all agree that the Explode LX is a gimmick at best and not to be relied on at all. A Liu Xing is still going to be great coming in out of LoF and then hosing down small fry order generators. Just as good as a Tiger in many scenarios. For myself with Tigers, i'm usually working with them at ranges where their Mimetisim is not all that helpful. They may be -3 for that, but most of the time I'm inside the +3 range. At least the LX can take a hit and keep going.
