I love your post dennis, thank you for that.
Rapture, lol. Funny thing is last time we played for war it was plant format, guess who won? Yep, J o S e J u A n 2 - - Rapture 0, Plant mirror because you were just a lil n00b trying to make a name for himself. I still respect you though, I know edrag mirrors were insane and most times the skilled player won and you topped, no one can deny you are good because trust me i was rooting for you and read your whole report aka the rapture is coming and i enjoyed myself and not only that but i knew you were the better player against your opps by the way you describe your matches. But you always try to insult whenever i post because i say stuff from the past.
My point that I was trying to come across was that anyone know can pick up necroz(or tier 1 for that matter) and can win. In the past you have picked up a tier one deck, but you would have still lost because there was not that much power creep and the better duelist almost always won because it was a grind fest and you could not put 8000 on the board.
I went to my locals(i live in puerto rico aids lol) and i went there two weeks ago to see the scene and people were praising people that i used to BEAT them all the time, now they are consider elite players where in reality they would always scrub...... maybe i'm wrong and they just continue playing till they got good? i hope thats the case lol.
I know I sounded arrogant, old, retarded and whatever else i was called lol, but i would love for someone like jeffjones(which has been on this site far longer than I and still continues to have success irl) to tell me if it's just me living in the past like raptures says or you just have to have to adapt and accept that modern ygo is still ygo but the % of times you lose against an inferior player just because he can afford necroz is higher.
Maybe CaptainSureaka Joe Gio can write something here. At least I still have faith in ygo because one of my friends irl who used to play with me still plays and is playing necroz and we have a chat on wazzapp and no one has beaten him in the mirror of necroz in forever LOL and he just brags and brags which i find completely hilarious. I just really want someone old school that still plays to post his opinion on modern ygo vs old ygo.
And don't get me wrong, i've lurked always to this day because once you play this game, you just cant withdraw yourself completely. So i've seen shadoll, burning abyss, necroz, satellar(iknow it's linear deneb search altair set 4 ur turn herp derp lol) and all decks that have been played for the past year.
Just had to post this because i sounded like a douche, when in reality i've played this game as long as anyone but the passion has just faded away even though i still play xD. I plan on posting more but saw that the war section has been dead and that makes me so sad because that was this websites most priced possesion.
But to continue with the thread
