    So the first Atlanta regional of the format was yesterday. Something over 200 in attendance, didn't listed too well in the player meeting but it was a decent size event. I ended up getting top 4 with my Stun deck (feels good man,) one of my teammates made it to top 8, and another of my teammates got his Nats invite as an X-2 (couple bad draws.) So anyway, me and my teammate James Hames (ravensanger) were sitting in the lobby of the hotel this event was being held at after like the third or fourth round and we were discussing the field and the players in attendance that day. There were a lot of really legit players there that day, Patrick Hoban, Henry Su, James Hames, Chris Arantes, Raheel Morelli, Da Lee, Aurthur Rhodes, several more but that is just to name a few. James and I were discussing how much better the players at the event that are on DGZ are as opposed to other players who are not. There are some good players in this game that I don't think are on here (Henry Su is an example, I am not sure if he has an account on here or not,) but there are several "pro" players and other skilled players who are. Regardless we noticed that most of the people doing really well in this event are members on this site. I have always been a decent YGO player and this is not the first TCG I have been involved in. I've been in gaming almost 11 years, so I always had a pretty good handle on things but never really got all that good in all honesty, I needed something else to really push me over the top. Ever since I joined DGZ about a year ago I feel like my skill and knowledge has substancially increased. Now I am not saying I'm fucking amazing or anything like that, that is not the point of this thread. The point is to say that I have (and I'm sure others have too) benefited greatly from joining these forums. The insight I have gained in the past year has been amazing. Being able to discuss YGO anytime with such a huge player base and wide variety of skilled duelists has helped me out a great deal. The deck discussion forums are probably the greatest idea in the history of YGO on the internet (outside of YVD I suppose.) The ability to go on here and discuss deck ideas, concepts, and the meta in general is a big help. So what is the point of all this? I just wanted to share my thoughts and experiences with everyone in the DGZ community about what I am feeling about this and I just wanted to say thanks to the admins and mods of this site for doing a great job keeping it good, and the great player base that makes this website a tool for learning about this game that I have so much fun playing. Pojo just sucks. No discussion or debate needed there. Oh, and a sidenote, The Cloaked Duelist was at this event. Talked to him a little bit, unfortunately he did not top with the E-Hero deck this time.

    I don't understand how tech translates to the deck being harder to play. Summoning Debris with a Darksoul in grave and going into Black Rose isn't exactly a "hard" play.

    Nice job. I forgot, was this your first regional top or have you topped a few other ones prior? The format is pretty fresh, but it seems like so far that skilled players have been winning a lot more than in previous formats. I certainly feel that DGz has made me a better player. There were a lot of other factors though. I think using the internet to network with other skilled players is great and should be utilized more. I'm disappointed that MTG doesn't have a DGz equivalent.

    1. You think GoldenEye: 007 made for Nintendo Wii will live up to its old game and many expectations. And you will buy this game in November. 2. Megaman: Universe, for X-Box 360 and PS3, easily looks epic as you definitely want to get your hands on this game the first day it goes on the market. 3. If an ICO/Shadow of the Colossus reprint goes on PS3, as Walmart rumors, you'll definitely be getting your hands on this game. "Walmart is currently taking pre-orders for an ICO/Shadow of the Colossus combo for the PlayStation 3. It would appear that this would be another HD update, much like we've seen with the God of War I & II re-release on the PS3. The listing price is set at $39.95."

    he kind of is Oh really? First of all I do not know him, or have seen him play ever but, you Americans always act sooooo close minded. I mean, do you actually know who plays outside of your shitty country and canada? You have no clue about the level of competition in for example Europe or do you? This lazaro bellido wins a tournament has topped and won perhaps more and now he is the best of the world. I believe whenever someone whom many people like wins a big tournament like sjc or ycs he is crowned best of the world, every fucking time. Stop that seriously, it's a fucking card game after all. People saying that only someone like lazaro can play his deck perfectly are really really ignorant and stupid. We all know what the cards do and how it works. Obviously you need to be able to make reads and play your cards to near perfection, but saying other people other than him can't do it is nonsense. Furthermore, where do you guys base this shit on? On NOTHING, you just say something and more dickrides will pick it up and you get a stijve geslachtspilaar because you randomly wrote something and other dickriders just like you are now saying the same thing I am in no way saying this Lazaro bellido is bad or anything, because I do not know him. I'm only saying that you should get your cocks out of his mind, broaden your horizon and stop being ignorant. Dude, the only ignorant posts so far have come from you. No one made this a NA v. Europe argument, but you chose to take it that way. ...and then got inexplicably offended. Lazaro's good His build was good It got massive coverage so people know about it. When decks from Europe are good and get solid coverage/dissemination, those players get the props they deserve as well. Get over yourself, man.

    You may have noticed that every post now has a "reputation" feature you very frustratingly can't give or remove reps from. I'm adding how many reps you can send in a day, but I'm curious as to what people think a good limit on how much Rep you can dish out would be?

    Thoughts. So I didn't really cast SECS but I was on Vent when it was casting! I got a haircut. I thought about some stuff from doing 2v2s on Starcraft. Here's the best part, when you type and talk a lot of shit, it takes the opponent awhile to think and respond. My friend and I used it to our advantage so even though we were outnumbered in units, we won because we forced our opponent to type, think, and try to micro all at the same time. Did you see that Bears game? Better yet, did you see the Redskins game? I didn't post any thoughts yesterday since I had to run a tournament. I'll get to shooting the new photos this week. So apparently some people were asking me something that I REALLY did not think about over the weekend. Something about the WCG Grand Finals in LA? I may show up to that one depending on if I get sent to it or not. It's scheduled for the 30th to the 3rd. Am I the only one who finds college basketball incredibly boring? I think the only thing exciting is the crowd tbh. Someone remind me to NEVER do double eliminations for a one day tourny ever again. LOL my friend Nick Wong (yes we have to include his first and last name) and his friends went to a Korean restaurant and they couldn't pay so they had to wait for Nick Wong's dad to show up. Also, now there's a team called "Jersey Shore" and they are all changing their names to their character names. Holy shit I have a noodle arm. I tried to throw a football and it barely went 40 yards. LOL pretty bad. I'll get the interviews up on rreload, I promise. Also Kit refuses to talk about last weekend's tourny. I think he was in a bracket with a bunch of the better players. I'm going to admit something. Have you ever listened to "Teach me how to Dougie"? Okay well every time I'm in my car and that song somehow comes up on the radio, I have the need to roll down my windows and turn my sound the hell up. I roll with stock son. Okay so my house hunting, here's an update. It's getting close. Really close. I'm getting a lot of help since I didn't realize one of the biggest benefits I had was something loan related but I never read up on it until now. So for It's Penguin Time! We're going to come up in like a month or so, I gotta get the new internet up and I have to get stuff straightened out. It's been busy here in MSP's household lately.

    T'was the night before; 'Twas the night before reach, when all through the house Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse; The shotguns were hung by the chimney with care, In hopes that Noble Six soon would be there; The children were nestled all snug in their beds, While visions of splatter sprees danced in their heads; And mamma in her 'kerchief, and I in my cap, Had just settled down for a long winter's nap, When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter, I sprang from the bed to see what was the matter. Away to the window I flew like a flash, Tore open the shutters and threw up the sash. The moon on the breast of the new-fallen snow Gave the lustre of mid-day to objects below, When, what to my wondering eyes should appear, But a purple hued phantom, and eight tiny Sangheili, With a black armoured driver, so lively and quick, I knew in a moment it must be noble six. More rapid than eagles his coursers they came, And he whistled, and shouted, and called them by name; "Now, Carter! now, Catherine! now, Jun and Jorge! On, Tom! on John! on, Rosenda and Holland! To the top of the porch! to the top of the wall! Now sprint away! sprint away! sprint away all!" As dry leaves that before the wild hurricane fly, When they meet with an obstacle, mount to the sky, So up to the house-top the coursers they flew, With the ship full of guns, and Noble Six too. And then, in a twinkling, I heard on the roof The prancing and pawing of each little hoof. As I drew in my head, and was turning around, Down the chimney Noble Six came with a bound. He was dressed all in black, from his head to his foot, And his clothes were all tarnished with ashes and soot; A bundle of guns he had flung on his back, And he looked like a peddler just opening his pack. His visor -- how it twinkled! his shine how merry! His visor was like roses, his lights like a cherry! His blast shield was drawn up like a bow, And the lights on his chest was as white as the snow;; The stock of a weapon he held tight in his grip, And the smoke it encircled his head like a wreath; He had broad shoulders and a little blue shield, That shook, when he was hit no matter the yield. He was tall and large, a right jolly old spartan, And I heartened when I saw him, to see what was destine; A flash of his light and a twist of his head, Soon gave me to know I had nothing to dread; He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work, And filled all the shotguns; then turned with a jerk, And laying his finger aside of his nose, And giving a nod, up the chimney he rose; He sprang to his ship, to his team gave a whistle, And away they all flew like the down of a thistle. But I heard him exclaim, ere he drove out of sight, "Happy Halo to all, and to all a good fight"

    I was gonna say, Cold Wave is amazing in here right now. Had a Regional this past weekend and yeah, Wingbeat wasn't helping at all. As far as the side goes, Rivalry & Seven Tools was big. Negating Barrier/Chariot/Warning/Judgment took a lot of momentum from my opponent.

    Anything which can push through mass sets has become top tier spell and trap removal. Those cards mean that Cold Wave, Giant Trunade, Trap Stun and Royal Decree are probably your best options. Unlike Allen, I actually prefer Trunade over Cold Wave in several decks right now because of my ability to set afterwards, but it does allow them to keep cards which Cold Wave would allow me to destroy via Gyzarus, Hyunlei, Black Rose, etc. If you had a theme specific card (Wingbeat or Delta-Crow) then they would also be in this group. Targetted and flexible removal is your next tier of available tools. MST is probably the only one of these which will see a lot of play in this format. It's still fantastic, it's definitely not required though. I look at mass removal as my tools for being aggressive, I look at targetted removal as my method of "problem-solving". MST can deal with Royal Decree and Trap Stun can't. That doesn't make one better than the other (there are lots of examples where Trap Stun is better). The other thing about this level is that it can be chained/end-phased and that seems excellent to me. Awkward removal probably still won't be good except in a niche. Stuff like Malevolent Catastrophe has trouble solving problems and clearing the field at opportune times. It can create advantage which is good, but is difficult to set-up and not many decks can take proper advantage of it. Stuff like Double Cyclone, Chain Whirlwind, etc. just isn't helpful unless your deck is build for it. ---------------------------------------- We all seem to be pretending that spell and trap removal is only composed of spells and traps (except for the few comments on Breaker and the Amazon). I think it should be clear that most of the best spell and trap removal is actually in the form of monsters. We have a tendency to downplay these because backrows can be used to stop those monsters from working. There are some good options in these though. ----------------------------------------- My tier list right now would look like this: 1. Cold Wave [in most decks this is still the best there is] 2. Giant Trunade, Trap Stun, Royal Decree, Wingbeat, Delta - Crow 3. Mystical Space Typhoon 4. Dust Tornado 5. Everything else I'd put things like Breaker and Amazon on par with Dust Tornado/MST depending on the deck they were in, I'd say Cyber Dragon (as far as the spell/trap removal function) is below Typhoon but above Dust Tornado. He's also useful in other ways though, don't take that to mean I support pulling out Cyber Dragons for MST because I very much do not.

    Obviously that's the reason he's being kept in there, is more to protect his life than anything IMO. People always make threats right before it comes time for his parole that they'll murder him if he gets out. Guy deserves to burn in hell, along with the Catcher in the Rye. Never did like that book.

    Before I tell you this story, I have to give you guys some background information on the kid. For the sake of the whole situation I can not include names. This kid is your typical 18 year old, everything "stereotypical" yugioh should be. He's extreme dorky, gullible, has had his ass kicked at our local for stealing cards and showing the dude the cards. He's probably the most naive person in the most innocent way. To be honest, I think he has mental issue if not, 100% sure of it. But he is the kind of person that sees in black and white, doesnt really understand reasoning or logic, just results. And he's pretty fucken annoying. But nonetheless. So my friend decided to make an account on facebook a few weeks ago, pretending to be a female pro yugioh player from southern New Jersey. And Please note, I am and the kid himself is from philadelphia. My friend using this said troll account added the kid. The troll begins flirting with the kid, getting into more deep and intimate subjects(shit most of us didnt even wanna know but knowing it was hilarous nonetheless). And it gets to a point where they came together and created a team between the two. At this point, I am amazed at how far this has developed in 3 weeks. So about a few weeks ago, my friend gets a texted message from the kid. Apparently he was told to show up at our local at 7am with flowers being promised a Dark End Dragon and most possible, sexual favors. And of course, "she" doesnt show up. And my friend shows me all the vile messages he has been sent. Shit going from "Yugz sometimes turn me on" to "how is not homo if I wanna have sex _______ player" tl;dr=Kid is basically getting his dick hard to yugioh over a troll on fb with no pic, claiming to be spinning tracks with drake and kesha. Are we fucked up for doing this to someone who is pretty much retarded?
