Maybe the championships?
Eh, maybe. But there was a lot of grousing from high-level players that much of the top-level strategy was "solved" and in dire need of some new cards. That was...back in September. Nothing has changed, and I'm assuming that this delay only made it worse.
I know I'm just ranting and venting. But I would want to warn FFG that as cool as this game is, when it comes to LCGs, another six-month delay might damned well kill this game completely. I think that there has been real damage done with this past delay, but not terminal damage.
