Back in August, we held the third instalment of Bushiroad Rumble Online (BRO) 2022! This time, we saw over 350 participants battling tooth and nail for the coveted Attack On Titan: Final Season PR card and title of champion! Our stream also saw a record number of 8,567 views across the two days, double of BRO2021! Here’s a short recap of each of the finals in case you missed it.
Asia-Oceania — Freshcabbage (Mushoku Tensei: jobless reincarnation) vs. Middyspring-chan (BanG! Dream)
Starting off with the Asia-Oceania regional finals, Freshcabbage and Middyspring-chan’s finals match came down to the wire, with both players ending the game at 3-6!
Freshcabbage ran a standard 8 Standby Mushoku Tensei: jobless reincarnation list that aimed at overpowering the opponent in the mid game and building an insurmountable advantage.
With the recent update to the restriction list, Mushoku Tensei: jobless reincarnation decks may no longer run both “Strong Body” Ghislaine and “Just a Child” Rudeus in the same list. While the closest equivalent to “Just a Child” Rudeus would be Sylph, but this would mean having to splash Green or replace the Roxy package, resulting in a possible loss in consistency. “Sword God Style” Ghislaine would be a good replacement that helps in both the mirror match and against other decks running Standby.
On the other side, Middyspring-chan’s Choice/Gate BanG! Dream list looked towards building a strong late game board state with “Rausch und/and Craziness Ⅱ” CHU² boosted by Astonishing Speed, PAREO, as well as chaining attacks with the climax combo effect of “Astral Harmony” Mashiro Kurata.

Europe — WCC | Darcy (hololive production) vs. Tangjiro (Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?)
Europe regional finals saw a full stage of Proof of Trust, Hestia staring down Towards the Future Together, Houshou Marine, with the pirate eventually coming out on top thanks to her swash-buckling prowess.
While Darcy’s Kanata/Marine hololive production list was relatively weaker at level 0 and didn’t run any level 1 climax combos, the deck’s sheer strength and ability to generate resources from level 2 allowed for huge pressure to be applied in the mid-to-late game.
On the other side, Tangjiro’s Comeback/Gate Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? list also played towards having a strong midgame presence with characters like First Adventure, Bell easily reaching 10,500 power with four copies of 【Fire Bolt】 in the waiting room. Stacking on events like Pyonkichi allowed for even larger swings! In the match, Tangjiro’s First Adventure, Bell was even able to overpower Darcy’s level 3 On the Stage, Amane Kanata!

North & Latin America — Kuro (Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?) vs. H (RWBY)
The Americas regional finals saw an exciting finale once again featuring a full stage of Proof of Trust, Hestia against the eclectic cast of RWBY.
Kuro’s Comeback/Gate Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? list, while similar to Tangjiro’s, notably excluded copies of both First Class Adventurer, Ais and 【Sword Princess】 Ais in favor of added consistency at the lower end. An additional copy of 【Little Rookie】 Bell also allowed Kuro to run both the side lanes at level 2.
On the other side, H’s Choice/Standby RWBY list saw the potential of large threats such as Yang: Warm Welcome and Pyrrha Nikos. Jaune: School Dance and his School Dance climax combo also allowed for some creative positioning, with Jaune: School Dance at the back stage providing the effects to any character in the center stage.
