    I have to catch the second half of the world cup so let's make this guick We are playing an open set-up called matrix6: https://wiki.mafiascum.net/index.php?title=Matrix6 I randomly chose one of the 6 possible set-ups and I divided you into two teams...The Goodie Two-Shoes and The Baddies. It seemed all was well in the world during the daytime. Happiness, Ice-Cream, Petting Zoos, Yu-Gi-Oh! tournaments, etc. But at NIGHT, the BADDIES silently emerge. Using their noxious bad breathe + a pair of machetes, they murder a Goodie Two-Shoes every night. It is DAY. The Goodies must vote together in a block in a desperate attempt to KO a Baddie. Will they suceed? Probs not this is DuelistGroundz.com Day starts now and ends in 32 hours at CORRECTION: 7pm EST on Wednesday. Rules: - 32 hours days - 16 hour nights - claiming is allowed - role PMs have no flavor - 4 post quota, if not, modkill - no majority day 1 - mafia has day chat - ties end in a random lynch between tied vote getters - do not monitor account activity Players: 1. Malcolm 2. Brandis72 3. Tyranno 4. Sophocles 5. Wunter 6. Faint 7. Mascis 8. rei 9. NotAWolf

    That post makes me lean town on brandis, he's fairly new so the error is legit and I think it's less likely for him to post that 'If you were scum' reasoning as mafia.

    Bad train joke? Or you don't care for the lynch?

    Don't speculate on people's roles and/or whether they're vanilla, Brandis. It only gives scum team info on both your role and the role of the person you're talking about, so it's anti-town.

    I mean. Speculating on my role only helps wolves. Let them deal with trying to sort out if I'm actually a PR or not. Because I'd absolutely make those posts as a cop or as a vanilla. ...or as a wolf. But I'm not one, so is irrelevant.

    People are here now. Talk to me about why you posted this instead of trying to make something happen?

    Hello all, It's almost time to kick off the next season of our War League program. This will be a special season in a number of ways: namely, it will be the first season in which Duel Links is an official, supported format! 1. What's Happening to Current Format? Duel Links will replace Current TCG for this season as the second official format for warring, alongside Goat. This means that the Goat War League will continue with DCS and DSP events, while Current format will not have a Seasonal Playoff this season. I intend to run things like this for at least the summer season and possibly longer, given the consistently low levels of current activity we have seen throughout 2018. This doesn't mean that DGz is leaving Current format behind entirely; far from it. We will continue to run DG Live and DCS events for Current format throughout this season. For example, DCS Anaheim will essentially be two tournaments, including a Current format tournament on July 28. Live qualifiers for this event will begin shortly after the start of the season on July 1. After that point, we'll continue hosting sporadic Lives for Current players to gouge activity for future seasons. 2. What's Happening with Duel Links? Duel Links will be an officially supported format in the War League program, just like Goat. If you're a Duel Links player just now stumbling upon this site, you probably have no idea what this means. War League is the official name of our ranked ladder system run through WarBot on our Discord server. Our system of warring is a bit different from what most of you will be used to: while players will still join together in teams to share ideas and experiences and pool their resources against one another's in team wars, the "team aspect" is treated as secondary to the experience of the individual. So, you won't need to have a group of friends or access to social cliques of top players to get involved here, you won't need to pay any fees, and you won't need to go through any kind of tedious registration process. Usually, it's just as simple as logging into our Discord server and typing a message to the effect of, "Ranked Duel Links, anyone?" Every three months or so, we will have a DuelistGroundz Seasonal Playoff for top-ranked players in each officially supported format. The winner will receive a stipend of all donations collected from streaming event coverage from that season as well as a number of community goodies, such as branded merchandise or unique Discord server and forum roles and access to Staff sections of each. Additionally, as some of you may already know, this season will include our very first DuelistGroundz Championship Series event for Duel Links. These are open, live cash tournaments that come with the additional prize of a Seasonal Playoff qualification to the winner. The first of these, DCS Anaheim, will take place on July 29, and registration is already live on smash.gg! 3. What Do I Need to Do? If you're a player without a team, the first thing you need to do (once you're registered on the forums) is hop into our Discord server. Once you're verified there, you'll be able to play ranked games in any format you please using the #findyugiohgames channel. If you've already got a team, and you see your team is listed under its respective format(s) below, you don't need to do anything at all -- you're signed up by default, you're ready to go. All other teams will need a representative to post in this thread and then create a team thread in order to be officially registered for the season. Duel Links Lemo Pear Gang Goat Damage Step Lemon Mafia Workshop for Metalworker Current Storm of Ragnarok Lemon Mafia Tea and Biscuits FuZe Gang One last thing: I'm doing away with the contrived Exhibition/Regular system. As I should have predicted, as soon as Ynus's team was no longer involved in warring, no one gave a shit about the regular season stuff. All wars will be played as what was formerly known as Exhibition wars. Please view this thread for more information. Please send me any comments and/or concerns you have regarding these matters or anything else involving the upcoming seasoan of warring. Full Summer schedule:

    Dedication: In memory of Korey McDuffie, a true emotional genius and dear friend to many. Forward: This post's author has been in the shadow in some of the greatest players in the history of the game and, as a gift, this outline of the knowledge and wisdom that that author has gathered has been prepared for the sake of the game's community: The author hopes that this information finds you well and wishes you the best. Outline: I. Definitions A. 'consistency' - n. [representing...] "the measure of the rate at which a deck is able to complete its function" i. does not necessarily mean less cards is better ii. may vary by event rather than deck B. 'ceiling' - n. [representing...] "the maximum of the amount of power" i. each deck has a ceiling ii. each event's 'format' has a ceiling C. 'testing' - v. [which represents the...] "finding of the best deck to accomplish a player or team's goal at an event by practicing against decks that player/team expects player/team expects a reasonable number of matchups to be." ; "the preparation for an event." i. some people go to events that they have not tested for a. they get a peak at the next event by seeing games and hearing discussion ii. tools for testing (WARNING: do not commit the actions mentioned below to muscular memory. Doing so may result in accidental breaking of the rules at actual events) a. one tool requires playing with hands shown in order to be certain that correct plays are made aa. when this is done, there should be open and honest communication between the two players b. another tool involves choosing cards to start with or to be drawn D. 'format' - n. [representing...] "the sum of the decks that are statistically significant to impact the decisions of players" i. each event has its own format a. some people who frequent events make decisions based on those previous b. sometimes a deck that is unknown to many people does well and influences future formats c. sometimes a deck that is expected to do well by many fails, influencing future formats E. 'starter'- as mentioned in "Road of the King," by Patrick Hoban i. does not always server the same function in every deck or every event ii. dependent on the 'ceiling' of the format and that of the deck iii. usually provides the deck with the ability to consistently reach an intended height of power F. 'superior extender' cards - as mentioned in "Road of the King," by Patrick Hoban i. does not always server the same function in every deck or every event ii. dependent on the 'ceiling' of the format and that of the deck iii. usually required to maximize in order to reach the 'ceiling' a. may not be necessary to reach the ceiling aa. intentionally not reaching the ceiling may provide an advantage in the future G. 'engine requirement cards' as mentioned in "Road of the King," by Patrick Hoban {these cards are also referred to as "brick" cards} i. are usually necessary for the function of other cards ii. playing more 'support cards' may cause inconsistency iii. siding additional copies is an option H. 'draw cards' - as mentioned in "Road of the King," by Patrick Hoban {these cards are also referred to as "water" or "water hose" cards.} i. does not necessarily serve the function of lowering the number of cards in one's deck a. sometimes playing a number greater than the minimum in addition to draw cards is correct b. sometimes playing the minimum number of cards with no draw cards is correct c. sometimes playing a number greater than the minimum with no draw cards is correct d. sometimes playing the minimum number of cards with draw cards is correct. ii. the correct number of draw cards may be impacted by the ceiling of a deck or format iii. some draw cards are usually bad a. examples: ODoP, PoDu iv. some draw cards are almost always 'broken' ai. examples: USG, PoDe, PoG, GC I. 'banned cards' - "cards that a player chooses not to play in an event for the reason that they are too 'broken.'" i. players should be aware of the rules and follow them at all times, but that is not what I am talking about. ii. the personal 'banned cards' list is what separates the great players from the rest iii. players may choose not to play cards regardless J. 'broken' - [adj. used to describe...] "something which causes super-cession of an understanding held previously" i. things and concepts may be described by this adjective ii. in the context of game theory, something if broken if it provides a player with an unfair advantage II. Assumptions A. The player's deck is 'consistent' enough to play the majority of hands drawn i. There is an ideal ratio of 'starter,' 'superior extender,' and 'additional extender,' cards to the number of 'engine requirement' cards. ii. There is an ideal number of cards to play a. This number is variable aa. This number fluctuates with the 'ceiling' b. The number of cards used to determine consistency may require the use of a special calculator found on this site. bb. When determining the number of cards in a deck, 'draw cards' may be considered as -Xs rather than +Xs B. The player is not cheating during events i. the player should not cheat a. 'testing' may require doing things that violate regular rules, but it is important to not commit these actions to muscular memory. I. Events A. Choose whether to top or to win before registration, and prepare accordingly i. There is always a best deck to win the event and it should always win the event a. it is not always ideal to win every event aa. if the player intends to win a later event, lower the ceiling or consistency of that player's deck, or avoid 'banned' cards aaa. in this case, the winning player's goal should be to win with an unideal deck b. the best deck to win the event should be the most consistently powerful deck ba. the best deck to win the event is not necessarily either the most powerful or the most consistent deck bb. the best deck to win the event may sacrifice this property for the sake of a better matchup in top-cut c. the best deck to win the event is sometimes the one with the best matchup in top-cut ca. the best deck to win the event may thereby not be likely to top the event caa. if a player intends to win the event, that player should not always expect to top the event ii. There is always a best deck to top the event a. the best deck to top the event is not likely to win in top-cut aa. the player who chooses this deck should never expect to win the event b. The best deck to top the event is often the one that has the best win to loss ratio in matches over the field bb. The player choosing this deck can use results from other events leading up to events and that player's knowledge of the card pool to find this deck iv. The best deck to top the event will likely have the greatest technical advantage over the field II. Deck Profiles A. The player in the deck profile should give out information at that player's discretion i. This use of discretion should not be mistaken as a misuse of that player's influence ii. The player who intentionally wins the event has options a. That player may choose not to deck profile b. That player may choose to deck profile aa. The intentional winner who does deck profile may choose to act ignorant without ommision aaa. This player should act completely unknowing about the deck and quickly go through the cards aab. This player should not give information about cards aac. If asked open ended questions, this player should give shoutouts rather than information about the deck ab. The intentional winner who does deck profile may choose to act ignorant with omission aba. This player should act completely unknowing about the deck and quickly go through the cards abb. This player should not give information about cards abc. If asked open ended questions, this player should give shoutouts rather than information about the deck abd. This player would omit cards from the deck profile abe. This player would likely only do this at an event where lists are not released abea. Otherwise, other great players would be able to deduce the omission and potentially take advantage ac. The intentional winner who does deck profile may choose to share knowledge aca. This player may disclose reasoning with intention of not appearing to be falsely ignorant of choices acaa. This may prevent giving advantage to skilled players acab. This may cause giving advantage to less skilled players ad. The intentional winner who does deck profile may choose to share knowledge with omission acaa. This may prevent giving advantage to skilled players and may actually provide them with misinformation that leads to an advantage acab. This may cause a small giving advantage to less skilled players and may actually provide them with a disadvantage and thereby the intentional winner with an advantage ii. The player who intends to top and accidentally wins should deck profile a. That player may choose to omit advantages in the mirror aa. This may lead to advantages and/or disadvantages as discussed above b. That player may omit any advantage against the best deck ba. This may lead to advantages and/or disadvantages as discussed above iii. The player who tops with the intention to win may choose to or choose not to deck profile and with or without omition with similar repercussions to those listed above iv. The player who tops intentionally may choose to or choose not to deck profile and with or without omition with similar repercussions to those listed above Solemnly, Abe Thalos P.S. - The player should not ever troll for the sake of trolling itself P.S.S. - The player may choose to troll of the sake of misuse of influence over the format, though this should be avoided
