  1. I don't get what's wrong with secrets deck discussions. People used to complain about netdecking, now it's the opposite? I haven't played yugioh competitively for a year, but, as far as I can tell, deck building is still the most important skill in yugioh. Why remove that aspect of the game? I play high stakes online poker and people don't share some of the most advanced strategies/theory with the general public because it's an extremely competitive game and there's so much to win by being one step ahead of everyone else. This is not a bad thing for the poker comunity. The thing I enjoyed the most about playing yugioh was coming up with "secret" decks/techs with my friends and topping nationals/YCS's/euroes/worlds as a result of our hard work. I think most of Patrick's articles on ARG are pretty good in the sense that they  teach people how to think about the game instead of spoon-feeding people with the best techs and decks. Yugioh is a not very competitive game because most people are too lazy/stupid/don't care enough to improve, NOT because the few people who do put in the hours don't want to share the results of their hard work.
  2. Acid Washed MENS Jeans

    It can definately look good if you can pull it off. Why don't you just acid wash a pair of jeans yourself?

      You know lancea only can be used on your opponent's turn, right?
  4. Nekroz - Discussion

    I really don't think you know what you are talking about. No there aren't a lot of cards that target in the OCG right now and book of eclipse is more than "slightly acceptable". It's an out to thunder king, skill drain, sometimes emptiness, djinn (and it doesn't target/destroy), effect veiler, reqliphort, bottomless trap hole, effect veiler etc. which is what you use book of Moon for most of the time. It's one of the few techs that actually are good in the mirror match AND against anti meta/Qliphort which should be the only match-ups you worry too much about. Maining 2 trish will probably be a lot better in the TCG because of BA.
  5. Nekroz - Discussion

      I think you are playing the deck wrong or are very unlucky? Outside of floodgate, traps shouldn't really be that big of a problem. Necloths almost never have to commit their hand to push through backrows for damage unless you are in a really bad shape against qliphort. You almost always go +1/+2 when you ritual summon because kaleido/exo mirror basicly are free. Summoning 2x brionac or Valkyrus + unicore with kaleido mirror (I assume this is how you commit 3 cards from your hand without gaining any advantage on summon) into backrows is rarely needed/ the best play. You can usually just bait out the backrow or destroy/banish it with trishula, dire wolf (with manju/senju) or armor first and at worst go +0.

      Stacking maxx "c" is like picking gorz with pot of duality. It will rarely be that good if your opponent isn't terrible.

      Grave as in?   http://yugioh.wikia.com/wiki/Grave_of_the_Super_Ancient_Organism     What I thought. It's pretty good but remember that the deck has easy acces to rank 4s (dire wolf, exciton and castel) and some people play exa-beetle too. If you don't have grave set with another trap, nekroz will just out it with a rank 4 most of the time (therefore it's not very good in decks that don't play a lot of traps). If your deck can play mistake, emptiness or skill drain they are probably better and can be sided against other decks too.

      +1 for pun lol
  9.   It is of significance that RPS has the dominant strategy (the "always best") of picking each at a 33% rate. (Not necessarily in order mind you, for example six games don't need to be P, R, S, P, R, S for obvious reasons that suck but rather can be something like P, P, S, R, S, R which is still 33% allocated to each possible move). Of course, this doesn't necessarily mean Players will always choose the reasonable strategy and might risk it. One of the most important factor in any kind of conflict is typically considered to be the Human one (and its ability to Error).   It's actually not all that relevant. Picking each 33% is unexploitable i.e. GTO but you are never winning more than 50% of games vs any range% of rock/paper/scissor. There's never any reason to specifically pick each 33% every single time as a set strategy. If you know anything about your opponent/ average opponent you should obviously exploit it and if you don't, going with a random strategy is just as good. Even just knowing something absurd like the average opponent is most likely to throw paper after you've thrown rock a million times in a row, makes picking each at a 33% rate suboptimal.
  10. Qliphort - Discussion

    I think Clifford is a pretty good deck but I just hate that there's so little room for innovation in the monster line-up and side deck... On top of that, I think it's a pretty linear deck and it's relatively easy to play/ play against →  the deck's skill ceiling is pretty low.
  11. Hacking an FB account

    Just install a key logger on your/his computer/phone, make him use your wifi, reset his password by making him accept friend requests from fake accounts or use phishing. There's a lot of more complicated ways to do it but I doubt you would be asking this question if you were smart/skilled enough to do it.
  12. I'm going to Tokyo!

    There's a million things to do/see in Tokyo so it really depends on what interests you/what you want  to see. Read a travel guide or read about Tokyo on the internet. I would at least pay Shibuya a visit. The nightlife is really good too :) Don't go to Roppongi..
  13. situation right now please respond

      It's no big deal as long as you don't make it a big deal. Just be casual about it if she says no like it's not that big of a deal to you. Don't ask her out like it's a date but the same way you would ask out any other friend/colleague (and maybe add a little flirting/extra smiling). Be confident and don't act as if you're really lucky she wants to go out with you.
