-===== Towers Standard ===== +See [[Towers Standard]].
- +
-When LotR TCG began, there was only one format: the cards that existed. With the release of The Two Towers, Decipher split the game into three formats: +
-  * [[Fellowship Block]], allowing cards from Fellowship of the Ring, Mines of Moria, and Realms of the Elf-lords +
-  * [[Towers Block]], allowing cards from The Two Towers, Battle of Helm's Deep, and Ents of Fangorn +
-  * Open, allowing cards from all sets, except for [[Fellowship Block]] sites +
- +
-It quickly became apparent that the open format had problems in a competitive environment; in particular, there was a lack of deck diversity at the top level.((https://web.archive.org/web/20030402125243/http://www.dgma.com/content/default.asp?id=361)) In order to solve this issue, Decipher introduced a new format, [[Standard format|Standard]], which had the same cardpool as the open format but with an [[X-list]]. Towers Standard refers to the [[Standard format]] as it existed immediately before the release of The Return of the King in November 2003. +
- +
-Ring-bearer skirmishes can be cancelled in Towers Standard, as that rule had not yet been introduced.  Decklists can be found at [[http://lotrtcgwiki.com/forums/index.php/board,39.0.html|this subforum]] of the Last Homely House. +
