Steamforged Previews Fisherman's Guild for Guild Ball

This is the one that I was waiting for. The Fishermen's Guild is "my team" in Guild Ball. So, of course, I was nervous AF when Season 4 was announced. "How will my beloved team change?

In every Minor Guild, there's two players that can work with the Major Guild the team's tied to. Fathom is one of the two for the Navigator's Guild, being able to play up to the Fisherman's Guild, my personal favorite Guild. On that team, Angel is one of my favorite players, and almost always hits the pitch when I play. So, when I see that Fathom works very well with Angel, I'm like, "yes. This is a thing that pleases me." Check out all she can do in this new preview.

Steamforged Previews Season 4 Guild Ball

A couple years ago, I had a whole thing about a "year of new editions" as various games were getting updates. I really should've been doing that this year, too.
