Wear Your Favorite Clan Campaign! Results

Author: lactariusindigo

It’s the first week of 2016! We hope the year has been fantastic for you thus far. ♪~ ᕕ(ᐛ)ᕗ

During the past week, we concluded Part One of the “Wear Your Favorite Clan” voting campaign! Thank you for all your votes, we were extremely thrilled to see such an overwhelming response!

Today, we will be revealing the clans that came up on top in this voting campaign. Let’s take a look to see if the clans you are rooting for are featured in our column today!

Clan
Aqua Force

Clan

The clan at the top of the polls is Royal Paladin. Always a hot favorite amongst our players, this popularity has also translated well on the voting campaign this time round!

Red is definitely a good color, with Kagero, a representative from the Dragon Empire nation coming in second.

It was a very tight race between 3rd and 4th place with a mere minuscule difference of 0.1% separating the both of them. Throughout the voting period, the two clans would constantly overtake one another in the standings. In the end, Gear Chronicle edged out Aqua Force to take the 3rd place while the latter ended the campaign in 4th place.

Tachikaze, another clan from the Dragon Empire nation takes 5th in the standings. Dinodragons indeed have their unique charm. Lastly, coming in 6th is the clan Nova Grappler, representing the Star Gate nation.

We will be releasing more information regarding this campaign shortly. Please look forward to the exclusive apparel featuring some of these clans in the coming months!

After that exciting reveal, let’s move on to something as equally, if not more, heart-racing! It’s the climax of the Bushiroad World Championship (BWC) 2015!

Fajar, how do you feel right now after the World Final?

Hello Everyone, I am Fajar from Banjarmasin, Indonesia. I’m feeling very happy right now, because I struggled from Indonesia, then to Singapore, and then finally here in Japan and is crowned the title of champion!

You’ve done a fantastic job among all of the best players around the world. What’s your first impressions about this event? What’s your thought about your champion?

It’s very interesting, and I met a lot of new friends here. All of them are very strong, and maybe I’m just a bit lucky ahead of them.

That’s Fantastic! What do you think about being here at the world event in Japan?

I feel it very fantastic as it is my dream to go to Japan because I like Japan very much. And I want to come here again =P

What else you are going to do after you are done with the event in Japan?

I may stroll around Japan and go to Akiba.
(Staff: Will buy a lot of different things right?)
Yes! Cardfight!! Vanguard…
And when I’m back to my country, I’ll try to develop Vanguard community as well.

Is there any word you would like to say to other players and fans?

Don’t give up! I’ve tried to make it here for 3 years, 2012, 2013, and finally I stand here. Just don’t give up, keep trying, and keep playing Vanguard.

Fantastic! Is there any last word you would like to say to your friends, family, your fellow players etc.?

First of all, I want to say thanks to my guide, and to my father, mother, and my family, and my friends, and everything, everyone that supports me till here. I cannot go this far without them. This victory is not only for me, it’s for Indonesia, it’s for Banjarmasin. Thank you!
