    Fair enough.
    Although, it was related to Black 2/White 2 so it could go either way.

    Thank you for answering my question.
    Although when I posted that thread, I was not simply just looking for an answer, I wanted to spark some discussion as to what-if this was made into a movie, a discussion I was going to be continuing once two or three people posted.
    Closing the thread was not really needed, but it's fine. It's not a big deal as this is just a Pokemon forum, but it does come off as rude.
    Anyways, I hope you are having a great night.

    Wow Xander, can't believe that come June you will be able to get a coveted PC Veteran emblem!

    Time sure does fly by doesn't it? I only joined around a year later than you so my veteran status will officially be granted in March next year.

    The HG/SS announcement and Gen V announcements links aren't active anymore for some reason which is odd.

    But you can see by the first post here that Gen V was revealed on Jan 29, 2010: http://bmgf.bulbagarden.net/f280/new...its-way-52212/

    If you check Serebii's archives for that date, he posted it there too.

    HG/SS was announced on May 8, 2009: http://www.pokemon.co.jp/info/game/g090508_01.html but unfortunately the link is inactive too. You can go to archive.org and paste the link in there though, then click any of the dates and it will take you to what the page was. You can do the same with the Gen V announcement too: http://www.pokemon.co.jp/info/game/g100129_02.html.

    Yeah, I need to clean my room as well. I lsot my phone and it took me FOREVER to find it because my room. was so messy. I'll probably clean it up a little tomorrow. Oh cool, I have some friends on another site that plat Ragnarok odyssey. Aw, lucky I wish I knew where a copy of my Pokemon Yellow is. I hope that you have fun playing it!

    You seem like a nice person. Would you like to be friends?

    Hai XanderO! I'm new to this forum and am trying to make some new friends. How has your day been?

    '_'; It seems like it'd score easy wins in your meta, because Prophecy is a very passive deck and Lightsworn has no great way to counter the deck's ability to rapidly output damage. Six Samurai cannot deal with GAM, because none of their staple Synchros can fight Heavy Infantry and they just get nuked by the card advantage and point removal the deck has.

    Maybe it's your list that's built incorrectly? Are you running Genex Undine and 7-9 Atlanteans (the ones that act as discard fodder)? Are you running Abyss-sphere? (Other Abyss- S/T cards are pretty meh) Are you running 2 Abysspike, 3 Abysslinde, and 2 Abyssmegalo? etc.

    December 27th, 2012 10:22 PM
    What, why is nobody playing Genex Atlantean Mermail? They're top of tier 1 right now ... hyperconsistent and extremely strong. o_o

    EDIT: Oh also the level 1 test is actually fairly easy; I took it with some fake info and got 90% (I dunno what mistakes I made though, lol - probably the ones regarding Priority?). It's nowhere nearly as crazy as DN's admin tests... those are actually real terror. I have two DN admin friends (who are also IRL friends), and one of them specializes in making crazy admin tests - here, take a look: Link

    (For reference, I scored 7/10 on the first and 6/10 on the second, and this was after an hour of research. They're really hard.)

    No, it's not that ... Volcanic Rocket was played as a card that was similar to Stratos in that it was an instant +1 as soon as you summoned it (even if the deck couldn't use Blaze Accelerator that well - and anyway Blaze Accelerator is not that bad as point removal).

    Re: Macro - yeah, you can have D. Fissure and Banisher, but the latter is fairly fragile while the former is not as disruptive; and yes, even taking into account that you have six copies of Macro plus a couple Banisher it's still rather weak, because one, the deck functions at sub-par levels unless it has a copy of Macro or pseudo-Macro out, and two, any subsequent copies of Macro or pseudo-Macro once you have the first largely become dead draws, especially in games where your opponent does not care at all about Macro's disruptive nature. I used to play Macro Monarchs a long time ago, and they've always been tier 3 at best, sadly. Because of a mixture of both of the reasons I listed above, Macro has never been and probably will never be a great "enabler" card - unlike something like Gateway of the Six Samurai or Wind-Up Factory, continuous S/Ts which provide great advantage but is not necessary to the function of the deck. (Gates of Dark World / Dark World suffer from a similar dilemma as well but DW do not suffer as much as Macro decks when Macro isn't on the field vs when Gates isn't on the field - Gates is just a constant source of free cards.)

    Chaos Dragons are very good right now, and a decent choice; one of my friends really likes the deck. One thing to be noted is that it is basically shut down by a copy of Shock Master which calls "monster effects" - not that it matters, though, since the deck is able to output a huge amount of damage very quickly, and you should be okay as long as you don't get your field cleared away.

    Macro Cosmos isn't really a great card to base a deck around ... it's a brutal hate card though, and it's popular being used as such right now.

    Hieratics are a combo deck. Did they draw their combo? Do you not have any answers? If the answer to both is "yes", it is basically game (of course there is the off-chance that the opponent doesn't know how to do the combo right, in which case free win).

    Volcanics have always been "okay" and people used to really like Rocket's card advantage but the engine fell out of favor sometime between 2009 / 2010 for some reason ... I dunno why.

    It's because Konami finally made attribute support that wasn't DARK/LIGHT orz

    (which is awesome because I've always wanted to play WIND / FIRE decks but those archetypes sucked ... though now they don't, which is fantastic)

    Re: Dragons - at the same time of Chaos Dragons' popularity, Hieratics were pretty big in Japan as well... which is why they got hit with the nerf bat. Pretty hard.

Re-enabled VMs and PMs. Figured it was past time to reenable them. Just felt like sharing between my deep dungeon runs on FFXIV.

graaaaah! TTwTT Worked my tail off to raise nearly 2 million gil on Final Fantasy. For someone who can't make high level crafting yet, that's an accomplishment. So, together with my only active guild mate, we do a marathon run to raise the last 200,000 gil we needed to buy a plot of land for our guild house.

We made it and I buy the land only to find out that now I need a 450,000 gil permit to build on the land. I wanna cry. TTwTT It takes me a week to earn around 100,000 gil through...

Bought myself and my brother a capture card to record some of our games. Its part of something my brother wanted to start doing and I've been wanting to do some game recordings.

So I did a few test recording and decided to record one full dungeon run before I try some more things out. I don't have any video editing software so its pretty much a straight recording.

I chose to do this through the Duty Finder...

so. With a new format on the way, one that won't have an OMG huge impact due to limited amount of cards in the beginning, I'm delving back to the roots of dueling in a sense.

I've had fun with forceful aggro decks like Armed Dragon and Six Samurai decks. I did my time with control decks like Twilight Dragon and Macro Monarch. I even had a little side deck for swarming with Harpies some long time back.

I think its time for a new deck style. I plan on keeping and...
