This surfaced this morning on the Square Enix FFTCG website.
■ Banned card
We have determined that Dadaluma [4-085H] will be banned from Standard Constructed Format matches. It will still be usable in Title Format matches.
■ Ban enforcement timing
July 19th, 2019 (simultaneous to Opus 9 release)
■ Reason for this decision
Since Opus 4, this card has long been a reigning presence in the landscape of this game, a card that players have always needed to be conscious of during everything from deck construction to actual matches, and it has acted as an obstruction to changes in the tournament landscape. As it stands now, the card’s strength is not so great as to be insurmountable; however, in order to prevent the tournament landscape from becoming too stagnant, we have determined that it will be a banned card.
We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you in advance for your understanding.
That’s that, then. Fs in the chat for the most interesting 4 cost potato Earth had. RIP Dadaluma (2017-2019). He is survived by his wife Cactuar, and his daughter, Semih Lafihna.
(That puts our ban list to Gesper, Thaumaturge, and Dadaluma. For now.)
