  1. Opt in. Same username as on here.
  2. It's up pretty much 24/7 now, but disconnecting is still a real issue.
  3. Individual players' playstyles do not exist. Different decks may behave differently, but there are always good plays and bad plays, depending on the situation, and good players will be able to determine which play is the best to make in most situations. Both formats have their obvious pros and cons, but trying to change Exarion Goats into a completely different format with changed effects seems stupid and pointless. All it would do is cause unnecessary confusion between players. First, you'll start with changing Exarion's effect, then you'll change Ring, then BLS, etc., etc. If you want to play with Exarion, then play Exarion Goats. If you don't, then don't. It's that simple.
  4. This is where you're wrong.
  5. Growing up in the Sacramento, California area, I never heard anyone thank the bus driver, but that's probably because a large majority of the people who rode the bus were high school students. Now that I'm attending school in Central Cali, it's hit or miss. Most people don't, but whenever I do take the bus, there are at least a few people who do thank the driver before getting off.
  6. This alone makes the stream worth watching, even in a shitty format like this one.
  7. According to Problem-Solving Card Text, the "then" conjunction means that when resolving the effect, if the attack is not negated, the rest of the effect will not be applied. You can refer to the Konami article regarding PSCT conjunctions, here, to learn more.
  8. Special Summon Monsters must first be special summoned properly before being able to be summoned from the graveyard, regardless of whether or not the card summoning it "ignores its summoning conditions." All monsters with the text "Must first be Special Summoned..." or "Must be Special Summoned... and cannot be Special Summoned by other ways" are Special Summon Monsters.
  9. Honestly, I doubt Lullaby will be a very great or popular card. It seems rather lackluster to be honest. Sure, taking one of your opponent's best monsters sounds amazing, but in practice, most good monsters get their effects off when they leave the field or can recur themselves, so you have to be careful how you use it. There just seem to be many, better matchup-specific side cards than Lullaby which is only good in the mirror. Lullaby still seems like it would be alright in some mirrors though. In BA for instance, it searches out Terrortop. In Pendulums, you can search out Kirin which can be devastating considering it's limited now. You would just have to watch out for it leaving the field though. In Metalfoes, you can search out Gofu for the insane Crystal Wing opening. In D/D, you can search out Keplar or even Ragnarock or Thomas which can be very good for your large 3-4 card combos. If Herald somehow becomes popular (doubt it considering the deck has so many issues), it can steal a Scepter or one of your rituals.
  10. There should be three options on the top-left of the window, something like "always chain," "sometimes chain," and "never chain." Also, if you hold down the 'A' key on your keyboard, it will force the prompt up whenever possible, and if you hold down the 'S' key, it will prevent the prompt from coming up.
  11. So, Herald topped YCS Rimini. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SKMRW4S_XiU His List: 3 Herald of Perfection 3 Cyber Angel Benten 1 Saffira Queen of Dragons 3 Manju of the Thousand Hands 3 Star Steraph Scepter 3 Star Seraph Sovereignty 2 Summoner Monk 3 Ritual Sanctuary 3 Terraforming 3 Dawn of the Herald 1 Hymn of Light 3 Pre-Preparation of Rites 1 Preparation of Rites 3 Instant Fusion 1 Soul Charge 1 Raigeki 1 Upstart Goblin 1 One Day of Peace 1 Metalfoe Fusion 1 Elder Entity Norden 1 Darkfire Dragon 1 Abyss Dweller 1 Diamond Dire Wolf 1 Daigusto Emeral 1 Castel the Skyblaster Musketeer 1 Fairy Cheer Girl 1 Steelswarm Roach 1 Stellarknight Delteros 1 Evilswarm Ouroboros 1 Number 104: Maquerade 1 Constellar Tellarknight Diamond 1 Number 24: Dragulas the Vampiric Dragon 1 Constellar Ptolemy M7 1 Number 39: Utopic Beyond 2 Dark Hole 2 Book of Eclipse 3 Maxx "C" 3 Twin Twisters 2 Ally of Justice Cyclone Reader 2 Effect Veiler 1 Artifact Lancea Metalfoe Fusion was to discard for Sanctuary, making it essentially costless. Roach was for pendulums. Masquerade was for BA/Kozmo. Lancea was for Kozmo/Monarchs and could be recycled with Saffira. The rest was pretty self-explanatory.
  12. To be honest, I've hatched very few worthwhile pokemon. The only very good pokemon I hatched was an 1100-ish Snorlax pretty early on, but I caught a 1047 and a 1989 one later in the wild. Heck, even my three Chansey and my Lapras I found in the wild. I did hatch a Growlithe, Eevee, Magikarp, etc. every so often though, so it's whatever.
  13. How exactly is Brexit comparable to Trump's campaign? I personally don't know much about Britain's politics and how the EU actually affected its economy, so it would be helpful if someone could give me a brief rundown of it. Most of the sources I find and people I ask are very biased in favor of either viewpoint, so a hopefully less biased summary would be appreciated. As for his speech, it honestly didn't seem too impressive. He pretty much just talked for six minutes about Trump being the answer to corporatism and big money and about Obama and Clinton being terrible for the country, but he doesn't really delve into how Trump will create this change or how Obama was such an awful President. Sure, as far as we know, Trump isn't being paid by any special interest groups, but this still doesn't fix many of the US's issues and has a rather minimal impact on Trump's actual policies. Honestly, this is one of my biggest issues with the current election (and mainstream politics in general). Most political debates or speeches are filled with political propaganda and pointless rhetoric that create the appearance of a long, elaborate speech but don't actually add any substance or material to it. Narrowing down these speeches to be more concise and to the point seems to me like it would help them be much more effective and persuasive to the audiences.
  14. Have you played a Magician or Performapal Magician deck recently? Pendulum Call wasn't that great of a card to begin with and was only ever included out of necessity for consistency reasons. The Monkeyboard ban hurts much more than the Pend Call limit because now you can't rely as much on Joker or Sorcerer to get free backup scales. Iris and Abductor are still completely insane cards though, and I'm sure the Magician decks can adapt with things like Igknight Reload. In fact, one of the Magician players from Worlds was playing a teched out build with the Wind Barrier Statue (Bunuku, Kirin, Avian, and Oaf are all Wind) that for the time being looks like it could be a very potent threat with the new forbidden list. This might not be a terrible idea, but those disruption monsters still won't be as good as Kirin simply for the fact that Kirin is a pendulum monster, so you could pop it for free with your Metalfoe scales and so you could recycle it if it ever got destroyed or removed from the field (bar banishing/spinning. most of which now target). Outside of like Avian, Gendo, or Jowgen, all those seem pretty matchup specific as well. Still interesting suggestions though. Burning Abyss and Magicians will probably still be pretty relevant after the new list tbh. For the time being, I wouldn't count them out yet at least. With Demise still at 3 and the top tier decks being hit quite a bit, stun decks might see a small resurgence as well, making Strike even more of an issue. And @buckwheatloaf, the Kozmo idea probably isn't any better than it was before. The Kirin limit has literally no affect on how good (or bad) a Kozmo engine would be, so if it wasn't any good before, idk why it would be better now. Sure, it could act like a replacement engine for the two lost copies of Kirin, but the engine seems rather gimmicky. What targets do you even have for Allure besides Dark Lady? Any additional copies of Gofu you might draw? Town is also only useful if you already have your scales setup, and I would definitely not run Desires with the new F/L list. The risk of banishing Kirin is just too great.
  15. You guys are just arguing over semantics at this point. It is clear that the limits on Cir and Beatrice will hurt BA, but not to the extent where it becomes competitively nonviable. BA will clearly still be a very powerful deck with the potential to remain a solid top-tier deck, especially with the hits to the other top decks. Arguing over whether the impact of Cherries and the impact of these limits is a valid comparison is trivial and irrelevant.
