    Hey folks. It's been a long while since this thread was made, and I've been doing some reminiscing. Thank you for supporting our beginnings.

    I would think twice about taking this kid on a car ride to an even. Watch your valuables, your phone or wallet and also your Duel Monster cards. He has shifted to the DARKSIDE of the community. Sounds funny, but don’t reward him with you resources. It may come at a cost of another players things as well. Even in a VS. match during shuffling your opponents cards he takes on a locals level. Also at a flea market he is documented taking rares out of a box and pocketing them. Currently he has not allowed to go into a few Walmart’s in the Springfield area for stealing cards and things. He has stolen from past team mates as well since 2017, has been forgiven in good faith to return what was even borrowed but no follow up. He is bad news bears, normally surrounding himself around good people only to get a plus out of it. He comes off as trusted, nice and kind. Something changed in this kid and I hope your not hurt by his illusions or lack of friendship.  


    Before you take him anywhere EARL, you should consider this.

  5. I for one am a fan of building decklists for the explicit purpose of showing everyone "the game becomes less fun when X card is involved. consider doing something about it." that sort of "choosing not to play a card because one has already decided the card shouldn't ever be involved" attitude is counterproductive if you believe a card is deleterious to a rich and enjoyable gameplay experience, play that card in order to prove that your belief comports with fact.
  6. No One Ever Really Leaves, They Just Go on Hiatus

    Game's selling well and event attendance is steady/rising. So, game's alive. Game's health judgment depends on what constitutes a healthy game for you - for some things are healthy b/c there're multiple seemingly viable things, for others it's not so healthy because of the methods those things employ.
  7. Sky Striker - Deck Discussion

    Whether he is or isn't is not going to help me fix this. Also, we know cards described as Sky Striker cards are in the pack in question - we just don't know how Sky Striker as a term will be applied.

    Honestly, having lived through assaults and violence, I would say that I too feel you are not approaching the matter as would be best, but that it's in part because of how you communicate with us. Self-defense is very much a speak-softly-and-carry-a-big-stick thing, but only when we've already failed to do plenty of other things that we ought have done in the first place, such as minimizing the duration where one is capable of being around persons one considers able and willing to assault, and minimizing the distance between places where one knows one is free from assault. My point, I guess, would be that the rest of us who live in shitholes here in the US are very sober about, and disappointed in, the fact that circumstances lead us to self-defense - and that we don't adopt it as a practice whereby we allow ourselves to become quick to presume lethal intent on part of those that would assault. Living through enough incidents where firearms were discharged with intent to kill has traumatized me, but in spite of that there are certain disciplines I have not let go of. I feel like the others in the thread are kinda scared that you're just gonna shoot someone dead that oughtn't be shot dead, and that you'll care more about your fear relating to these incidents than about that "some folk ought be shot dead, and some folk oughtn't" matter. My own incidents haven't led me to care more about my fear than about that distinction. Paranoid niggas are scarier in some ways than criminals, because paranoia is a mere stone's throw from being someone who does wrong while convinced they're in the right.
  12. not quite. there's a flowchart for this. the event in question - the summon of a Suanni - can occur in an open gamestate or a closed gamestate, depending on exactly what you're doing and when. presuming you Normal Summon it or Pendulum Summon it w/o a card telling you when to conduct the Summon, this'd start us in box A of the flowchart presuming otherwise, we're starting in box D both of those boxes eventually lead to the yellow box on the flowchart, which asks about players' triggered effects those always get activated before either player has the right to activate any non-triggered spell speed 2/3 things
  13. The last-resort answer to a "he-said-she-said" call, one that cannot be resolved by any other means, is "the judge believes X to be the most likely set of circumstances, therefore we will proceed with that set of circumstances, and the fault lies with the players for failing to both communicate clearly and manage the placement properly." If I come to a table and see one player with an immaculate layout, and another with a messed up one, chances are that unless there is some mitigating factor making clear that I shouldn't expect the same standards of intelligence, discipline, or rule knowledge from both players, the person with the immaculate layout will have a finer grasp of the game's details regarding placement of cards in zones. This means of course that I don't want to see Main Decks in places where Graveyards go, despite it being the style at the time.
