    The timeline from Cancon and the Vegas Open shows the release at about the end of the campaign, which is less than optimal for TAK, since they'll miss the party, but it also means that the announcement and preorder will come around about the mid point of the campaign, or more likely right before the third phase of the campaign as a crescendo narrativity, but with not much effect in game since nobody will have them...

    EDIT: Rumble video has timeline has moved the campaign back to May to June, so yeah the May release is out right before the campaign now...

    Also the lack of an updated CG swc box for two years doesn't help either.

    Thank you for the replies to the 'invalidated builds', those were not uses I usually did in vanilla.

    Yeah, that's really offensive in the US. Far worse than 'Frogs', 'Krauts', or 'Eye-ties'.

    Uh, you do know that Vanilla is keeping Ninjas, right? Just no Oniwaban or Shikami (super-ninjas). I mean, I guess you could look up whatever the Chinese word for 'sneaky SOB' is (or ask a Chinese-speaking forumite what the historical name for a sneak-spy was), but for better or worse I think everyone but the Chinese use the word 'ninja' for that.

    Would rock to see the backwater nation with like 10 population get its third sectorial while the "second power" has one

    Can you think of any other reason those profiles would have stayed? I can't think of any other campaign-related content that has remained permanently like that.

    Considering it was the first time there was campaign related content like that Introduced, I don't think that point has a whole lot of validity.

    Kind of fucked up, because Shikami just hit and one of them is explicitly painted in a Chinese color scheme.

    Speaking as an (Italian-) American, "Jap" is definitely seen as more offensive than "Eye-ties." I've never heard the other two used in a non-ironic manner.

    The new trend of "vanilla starter is also a sectorial" has meant that Ariadna have had to grind along with the oldest minis for a vanilla starter since 2014. A couple of years ago you could tell they were a bit older, but the new standard set by red veil was not kind to those Kazaks...
    Also remember, TAK isn't confirmed for this year either, and there's a chance the gencon release will be replacing Ice storm with a sectorial friendly version of the same(Pano/Varuna vs Nomads/Tunguska), which would leave May and November's releases for TAK, Vedic, and Ramah(that we know of...).
    YuJing won't be the only folks disappointed, just the first...

    Listening to the seminar they defs knew about the split well before the shikami released, the second one being painted JSA colours was a hint at things to come.

    I take it he meant N3. N2 was pretty painful.

    I'd be more inclined to say that the reason they're kept is that the impact on the sectorial performance is trivial enough that removing them isn't worth the effort.

    Since popularity is being thrown about for a reason things are done in this thread, I thought I'd point out that in the Rumble video he states that the reason that they didn't do the JSA starter earlier was because it was selling so well there was no need. So popularity doesn't equal resculpts.

    Well, being a cynic, yes they do. The more popular a product, the less they feel like they need to replace it (quite the standard market perspective, btw). Look at the Moran, the "must have the two" for any Nomad player.
