Good grief, this was one long and harrowing day. You guys wouldn't BELIEVE the massive screw-up I made at Regionals! So I had my Piloswine fully trained and everything... but I didn't realize I didn't evolve it until AFTER I got registered! I wasn't allowed to cancel registration to fix my Piloswine so I was out of luck. Off to battle I go with a Piloswine using a Mamoswine set! Oops? Well against all odds, I ended up with 6 wins and 3 losses.

The Road to Worlds: Winter Regionals 2014

A season come and gone and it is now a week before the VA regionals. Here I am, half asleep, sitting with my back leaning against the heater, with papers everywhere and a bunch of windows up doing calculations and team building.

Unlike what most people think, it is difficult, even for experienced players, to do well in a Regional. It takes lots of math, lots of practice, lots of luck, in order to place in the top 100, much less the top 16. Well, it is for the Northeast, anyway. But...

The Road to Worlds: The Excitement

Posted September 20th, 2013 at 09:12 AM by Griffinbane

This is a month overdue but oh well.

So during the Worlds Championship last month, the officials were streaming live online and well, I somehow got most of TC chat watching. There was SO MUCH catcalling and hissing and groaning over missed hits, critical hits, bad moves and whatnot.

Well, at the end of it, everyone was eagerly anticipating the announcement for the location for '14 Worlds. Guy who looks like Jim Carrey (to me) announces... "Washington, DC!"...
