They would not say "The village/land with the most points each month/quarter will receive special promos and Organized Play materials" and name Europe as the Land of Iron, but not actually give them a chance to even compete.
This thread is full of hopeful Europeans (A good thing) and ignorant as hell Americans. You guys make me more disappointed in this country than our current presidential candidates do, and that means A Lot.
I wasn't saying it shouldn't happen, perhaps I misphrased what I was going for. I meant that they don't have what it takes to sell overseas [ie: No printers, no packaging, no warehouses, no office.] Getting all that in order and having the timing right will spell success for Bandai over there, but at the moment they don't even have all that here. [Based on what I've heard about errors and such with the newest set.]
Right now, they need to focus on getting the game back up and running on both legs here at home. Then expansion can be a possibility, as mentioned in the quoted post, Bandai does a lot of things half arsed of late, but I don't think they would bother expanding the map if they didn't intend to do something with it.
