I heard an interview with Kellie on this. She said that "Rate" is Aussie slang for "genuine", "bona fide", "grade A", or the like. So, not only is she a Tank- she's a "Rate Tank". Pretty hilarious, given that she is barely 100 pounds soaking wet- part of the gimmick.
Can a Shimmer fan explain to me what Rate Tank is?
I can take a stab at it. I've never heard an explanation of the Rate part, but I figure it's work rate. The tank is how Skater is described. She is indestructible. Described as being made of pure adamantium. The indestructible one. The Colossus of Bockusmarsh.
Yeah, Skater has a lot of nicknames.

The art for Kellie Skater looks great. I have to say I love the art for every card so far and what a great roster it is already. Really looking forward to this release.

AAARGH!!! would someone PLEASE PM me on what 2 were revealed in the promoter? Its killing me! But seriously, this might be the best looking set yet. And I don't mean that in a chavanistic pig-like way, either.
over? did u say over? nothing is over until we decide it is!
Ya could just spend the 3 dollars to get the Promoter and get all the sweet reads and special matches, scouting reports and the sweet Maya Singh card. The Promoters are worth the $3 all day long.
