It is a trading card GAME after all.
Was t saying anything against it!
Speaking of League Challenges, any idea on when the UK will get them?
I guess I should switch back to Garbodor since Darkrai/techs is becoming a thing, but I'll probably just stick to playing Y in the meantime...
Everything/Techs is becoming a thing. It's a little annoying. I want to test against meta decks, and all I'm getting is decks with too many stage 2s that don't actually have any synergy and no real reason to be run in the same deck.
My meta literally consists of the 3 other top players playing a Darkrai deck, a Genesect deck, and a Plasma Lugia deck. I think I can metagame this.
I'm currently trying to decide between Laserbank or Frozen City+Absol for Darkrai.
So it looks like I'm not going to Columbus tomorrow due to it being 2 hours away, it being at 7PM, both coupled with what is expected to be decently-sized snowfall.
Great. I wanted more time to test, and I got it. Guess I'll have to try again Saturday.
And that's a bad thing... why?
I mean, yeah, it's kind of cool to be able to metagame and pick the perfect deck for a specific tournament, but the amount of variety we are getting is amazing. Not being able to predict what you're going to see in a tournament brings more skill than knowing exactly what's going to be played.
It'd be different if half of the choices I'm seeing made sense and actually had a chance to work, even on paper. I'm all for variety, when it makes sense. However, when I'm seeing Klinklang/Dusknoir/Garchomp/Cobalion (earlier today) and Blastoise/Dusknoir/Kingdra/Keldeo/Black Kyurem (yesterday), it's a little ridiculous.
Like I said, I'm fine with testing techs out. However, there's a point where it goes from testing techs to just overextending the rules changes. There's something to be said for trying new ideas, but when an idea isn't even close to viable on paper, it's out of hand.
Yeah, what you just describes sounds like my league's Juniors and bad Seniors
For the Americans on the board: Any special Thanksgiving plans?
Just having the big dinner with my mom dad sister and both sets of grandparents.
No family get-together's for us this year. Mom'll probably handle most of the cooking stuff; she already bought the mash potatoes, green beans, turkey stuffing. Meanwhile, my dad will take care of the turkey (all prayers welcome), but it should be pretty normal Thanksgiving for us considering what happened last year...
It's really easy for me to win a tournament, seeing how the seniors in my area don't know what they are doing.
Also, baby Kangaskhan needs to be its own Pokemon.
hey don't say seniors don't know what they are doing
Overconfidence won't help you at all. Never underestimate your enemy.
I think he means the Seniors in his area don't know what they're doing. If you're saying what stm just said, then ya, don't say seniors don't know what they're doing!
He was saying that the seniors in his area don't know how to play good/ play good decks. In another post he mentioned that his local seniors are bad.
Anyways what's everyone doing for Turkey Break?
I plan on some playtesting
Yeah me too stm. I'm a nervous wreck because I have 3 cities this week.
My meta is good, I am just better.
