It's clear that PanOceanis is in a better place than it's ever been. Our four Sectorials have received design attention, and our Vanilla offerings are more diverse and interesting than they've ever been. While there are still concerns and discussion about Military Orders, and there are still a few older units that haven't gotten much love, it's clear that the overall health of the faction is strong. My questions are: From a PanO perspective, what are you most excited for in the future? What's fun and interesting to you right now? Are there particular miniature releases that you want? Are you excited for Svalarheima, our next (albeit distant) Sectorial release? Is there enthusiasm to play PanOceania, or do you feel yourself gravitating towards other factions and other releases? Does PanOceania draw you as a competitive faction? Why are you picking PanO over other factions? To get some ideas going: I'm still hoping Varuna will get a few more releases. I'm thrilled that we received a starter, Zulu Cobra Jammer, Echo Bravo, Kamau Hacker (great VIRD Machinist proxy,) Patsy and ORC box. The Fusilier FO is a nice little ninja release, one that has plenty of players excited from a collection standpoint. My big hope is for a Helot Militia box and another Echo Bravo. Pie-in-the-sky is a Cutter resculpt. VIRD's still interesting from a competitive standpoint, and I feel like I'm still learning and gaining competitive momentum with them. Doing well at Rumble was really encouraging, but I haven't gotten to innovate too deeply with lists. A lot of my events this year have had similar scenario lineups. As a result, I've been depending on similar setups and unit selection. Many of my local events, which tend to be more dynamic or experimental in format, have fallen on weekends where I've had to travel. I've still attended a fair amount, but missing 3-4 local ITS events in a season is painful. Most of my results this year have come from travel events. I'm still hoping to finish out the season with VIRD, but Shock Army and Acon have caught my attention too. I've been getting some suggestions to try and play something new. I've filled a few shopping carts with IA and TAK stuff, but haven't really gone for it yet. I still have quite a few painted/half-painted/unpainted minis that need attention too. Svalarheima might be interesting from a competitive standpoint, but I'm waiting for CB to give us some units, images, lore, etc. that generates excitement in the same way that the VIRD dossiers did when they were dropped last year. MO is the one area of the faction where I feel like a complete stranger. I've only done one ITS event with MO ever, and less than 20 games, so I don't feel like I'm much of an MO player. I see some players who are quite satisfied, and certainly plenty of players who are dissatisfied. NCA and Acon have very strong rule sets, pretty good internal balance. NCA is a really good example of internal balance in a Sectorial right now, full of viable choices and a healthy amount of list variety. Acon's competitively strong, but has been funneled into mixed link syndrome... Namely, the power of their mixed link format tends to dominate all listbuilding. Not a bad thing, it's a departure from Acon pre-update. How's it going for everyone else? What's on your mind with PanO? What's gotten you excited?
