    I haven't played against Frey, but he is clearly unhealthy for the game, and his ability should be modified. Double dealer that he is, using his ability should cause wounds or damage to your own...

    I'm a Free Folk player and I think that 4+ giant lists are pretty cheesy. I certainly think that Baratheons and Targaryens don't currently have enough released to deal with them properly.

    Honestly they are still a great unit. They will be rolling eight dice on a three up for the majority of the game. You have to cause 18 hits to even take them down one rank!

    I think trappers are absolute garbage. You might get to use traps 2-3 times a game for a whopping 4-6 wounds. Their short range bows are terrible.

    Frankly, I think the changes were balanced. Even in an all Bolton list they were so clearly superior to other options.

    My only concern is that multiple Savage Giant lists seem like a setup that takes a low skill floor to implement, but a high skill floor to know how to counter, which is the mix that puts new people...

    Tracker traps

    The hidden traps order says "when an unengaged enemy within long range moves"
    Does this mean trappers can trigger the order when the enemy moves into long range as part of their move
    or not?
