Firestarter7200 Posted June 4, 2008 Report Share Posted June 4, 2008 Well, the time has finally come. I've decided to quit Yu-Gi-Oh! The fact of the matter is the game has just become retarded. Netdecking and broken cards have brought this game to the point where self thought and strategy are overrun, trampled, beaten, curb stomped, beaten again, and then shot by the Nazi regime of DAD and Judgment Dragon. It's become so bad that nobody even runs "fun decks" anymore. A "fun deck" is a deck that uses another strategy besides using a god damn $300 card, but STILL doesn't have original thought! Oppression Gadgets, Toolbox, Batteries, Macro, all "fun decks" are more or less copied lists. I miss my Dark Paladin Deck that I ran a few months ago when I got back into this game, but before I knew it I had slowly drifted into the ranks of DDT (when it was big) and then a Dark Deck (I bought box after box to try to get DAD, but this isn't even about money woes). The point is that I more or less completely sold out, and why? To win? I didn't even get that far. And if I did, what's the point? Winning with a netdecked deck is like rigging an election. You only won because your DAD hit the field before the other dude's DAD/JD. I've never so much as made top 4 at my locals. Why? Because my locals are infested with DADers and JDers (and back when I DDT'd it was all PC). It's just a system of "Join (and pay upwards of $1000) or Die." Just a week or two ago I saw something that really just pushed the self-destruct button and convinced me to quit. At the card shop by my house, I was playing someone. He was playing some netdecked counter-gravekeepers thing with virus control. After he 2-0'd me, I asked, kind of jokingly, "What do you call this, Nazi Gravekeepers?" and his response was, "No, I don't know what name the Japanese have come up with for it yet." wow.....just wow. Have we really lost all self-thought? Are we really just blindly following Konami into a pit of debt, death, and complete and total mob mentality? It's obvious that they're not going to do anything about it at this point. Banlists go by and DMoC sits high and mighty as legal while faith gets the pimp hand. JD and DAD rule the world at 3, and by the time they finally do get limited (LOLLIKELY), a new set will have come out with a new broken card at 3, since no card comes into print at 1 (except for like CCV). Then someone's gonna come up with a really neat strategy/combo around that card (or apparently steal it from Japan), and then it'll spread like cancer around the meta. I've even began to feel that playing smart has lost its purpose! Sure, someone can play smart, come up with a great prospect and idea for a deck, but then, a monkey/5 year old/ retarded geriatric just throws down JD. Ok, bottomless, whatever, let's even say he forgot to call priority, since we're assuming he's retarded. Then they play that pay 800 card and throw him down again. I didn't want to have to do this, but Solemn. I can't let him blow my mallon/reaper/thing keeping me alive up. Monster reincarnation/herald of creation/ANYTHING JD smacks the field again, blows everything up. I have, what? 1k left? Sure this is best case scenario, but it's also a pretty likely scenario, since a whole set was developed just to cater to JD's needs. But wait, there's more. Just in case JD couldn't be left to hold himself up, there are these lightlords that back him up. Lyla, or whatever her name is, moves the solemn out of the way, HOORAY! But I digress. We've all experienced this WAAAAY too many times, and I'm tired of trying to find ways around it. There are none! You either have to copy it and barge through it head on, or just swallow it. TLDR: game requires no strategy (or at least self-developed strategy), has lost all fun, and has no gratification for me. In fact, I don't even know why I'm posting this here. It's probably falling on deaf ears. People like Crab and JOC already know how broken this game is, it seems, and everyone else will just be like "lolplaybetter," or _____ thread is _____(btw, that is THE most annoying meme of all time). Maybe I'm just trying to find some solace in knowing someone agrees...whatever. You can't fix something this broken, so the only option is to quit......and maybe come back for stardust dragon (not likely). Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
