what brought you to DGZ?

Recommended Posts

its been a decade now, since once upon a time, and during that time i played this stupid ass card game. i knew it was stupid, and i knew i wouldnt wanna play it forever. eventually i stopped and girls happened
then i went through a super huge break-up and started hanging with my old ygo pals again (who turns out are still some of the best friends ive ever had) and i went through what i call "The Great Yu-Gi-Oh relapse of 2009!!!!" and i found my old local (which i thought had closed down forever) was still going. there i reconnected with an old friend of mine, some of you may know him, i think he goes by salad on here or something..... probably not important... anyway, i finally got to a point to where i wasnt too embarrassed about how much i sucked at the game and clayton told me i should go on DGZ
i joined, and i loved the atmosphere
the sarcasm
the blatant necessity for comprehension of irony
the humor
the merited elitism (not meant to be ironic)
and the ability to read some of the most intellectual theoretical discussions ive ever encountered whilst still using the word fuck without proclaiming ignorance all throughout

so i was wondering, how did everyone come to this little forum, and how has the last decade shaped our lives?

Back when I started, I only did irl Yugioh stuff. Nothing online based. However, once I started looking for some deck ideas for the game, I came across a lot of forums and this was one of them. I agree with why you enjoy the forums. It's mostly in your face sarcasm and humor as well as a great discussion place not only for Yugioh. And that's what kept me here

I joined with the desire to become better at the game. I stayed for the community in which oddly everyone seems to fit together.

nick and shawn (mack) brought me here.

it's weird that i've known blake, brad, nick, shawn, dan (wumbo), allen, cj, clayton, saleh, and a couple other people for way longer than i've been here.

Damn. 2006 was 6 years ago.

I forgot who told me about the site. Maybe some members from LK on IRC since I believe they were the first team I joined on here. Maybe the guys from the pooksplacepojo chatroom? I was pretty ignorant of DGZ at the time but pretty overwhelmed nonetheless. All these champions and shit were around and Alpha Omega, mainly Sixshooter, were my idols. Twas a good time.

Yeah I was gonna say something but I didn't hold you to it since I didn't really speak all that much in the chatroom ;x

Some guy on DMU told me I suck at yugioh and need to come here to get better. Clearly nothing has changed but yeah.

First, heard about it from someone on okcupid (don't ask) but found the site hacked, didn't check back on it.

Then years later, discovered yvd and with it irc. I forget who it was that told me to go on irc... He was port of #oor, with queen of hell and everyone, and his nick started with an s. Spectre or spooky? nah I forget. XD lol

Then I got on here and discovered my ex boyfriend owns the damn site, and stalking him became as good a reason as any to post here =] Also he was the only person i knew who could confirm I was a girl... Since very few believed me...

Before TeleDad I had an account on here I barely used and don't remember so I ended up making a new one after my gigantic as fuck break from 07-2011 because I started playing Magic competitively (And I think YVD died?). Dueling Network appeared and i had a reason to come back to this site and made this account. I came here initially back in the day because a lot of my buddies on YVD used the site. At first I didn't post because everyone intimidated me. so I didn't. Now that I'm older and not a pussy I realize the people on here are people that are extremely fucking good at this game and their brand of humor is so utterly hilarious that I wonder why I never posted when I was 15. This site is great, even if it's harsh sometimes.

I saw the name tossed around on Pojo, then on DN one or two times and sounded pretty cool.

I got into irl YGO last year in the Spring. I was on YGO Forums for a while before as I went there before a couple years earlier. I made an account here but never really used it and "lurked" for a while. (I think until around the end of summer) Even after I stopped lurking I did not post too much because I was still going on YGO Forums more often. Eventually I realized they were not going to cut it for me as I wanted to improve a lot more. It took me a while but I have increased my ability in this game a lot since last year and with every effort I realize I find I am even more drought of knowledge.


I have not made many friends though and I am sure a handful of people dislike me. Well, whatever. :/




I'm just glad the Vanguard people are all nice!

Dave told me to join around the time RF went down in late 2005 or early 2006.

Manny was trying to lure people from the original DuelNetwork (ran by SmashBro - spun off from YN which was run by MasterKaiba, Dark Yami Yugi and some other guys) and was like 'if you join, I'll give you mod eventually.. also you can have a custom member title RIGHT AWAY!!1' - I joined but I still vastly preferred DN and the spinoff projects like TCGeneration that Mark (SmashBro), Brax, and I would work on.

Hilariously I later learned Manny and some others flooded TCGeneration with gay porn to try and 'oust the competition'
Boss mode, lol.
