From LOTR-TCG Wiki

French format includes sets 1-6, Reflections, sets 11-14, and The Weta Collection. Like Movie Block, War of the Ring Standard, and Standard, it consists of three blocks, though unlike any of them King Block is excluded. It is similar in spirit to King Standard, created under the belief that the game is better without cards from King Block. It also allows some often-banned cards that aren't a problem in that format and removes others, with offenders falling in three broad categories: meta-defining (simply too strong), self-recurring site manipulation, and Negative Play Experiences.

French format is supported in GEMP and mLOTRO. More info is available in this Last Homely House forum thread.


The X-list for French format is based on the Expanded X- and R-lists, with differences noted with the reason:
