  1. Congrats to Rayfield Lumina for holding the number one spot for Member of the Week, Month and Year.

      I guess I just need 2,147,482,777 rep to surpass SPAMQUARTZMON. If I manage this I'll ask YCMaker to transfer the ownership of the site to me.

  2. I'm amazed that I haven't been on the board at all this month 😂😂😂

      But it makes me happy because I get to see somebody new on the board every week. 😁

  3. I am now Horu the Explorer 😂

  4. I wonder if it's possible to give Jaden a legit victory over Yugi. Not Atem, but Yugi.

    Allow me to clarify. Atem defeated Pegasus and pretty much everyone through Season 5 and remained King of Games up until he was defeated by Yugi. Hence, there is no way to give Jaden a legit victory over Atem. But a duel with Yugi can still happen but I'm wondering if there is a legit way to give Jaden the W.

      Now, let's add to this. Atem was out of the picture come the events of YGO GX, it was Yugi who gave Jaden both the Winger Kuriboh and sent him into the past. If we can reconcile this, Yugi beating Atem and taking the title of King of Games does not matter for Jaden, since Yugi wanted Jaden to experience a proper Graduation Duel. This supposes that Atem and Yugi, together, is the real King of Games, and when Yugi did not need Atem anymore to acquire this stream, he had taken with him the qualities of Atem that he needed to grow.

      Yugi beat Atem not for the title, but to let go of Atem and to move forward on his own. Yugi just took the title, as someone had to. He is only the King of Games by default. It is really Atem and Yugi together that constructs the proper figure of the King of Games.

      This is actually a really cool perspective to take, if we look at who Kaiba is and what he is trying to achieve. I don't think he cares about the title as much either, especially as he sees Atem vs. Yugi. He truly wants to face Atem, who was the rightful king of games based on historical, power, ability, and ontological balances. Yugi inherited the title, not by default, but by growth.

      So, Jaden, to really take on the title of the King of Games, it should be about inheriting the title though growth. This also adds a lot more to the last duel, as it was never the outcome that mattered, but the qualities that are gained and inherited. The last duel in the GX series for Jaden was about regaining his joy for dueling, inheriting this quality from Yugi and Atem. The title, then, is not about skill; Rather, it is almost about the perspective of dueling, the "heart" of the game, and not the cards themselves.

      I rather liked Dae's input on this subject matter. Mostly because he pointed out that the character development/growth is just as important as the duel itself. So while I am thinking of a legit way to give Jaden that W, I will also be considering the amount of growth that Jaden needs before we achieve that victory over Yugi. So I just want to thank you for your input, Dae, and let you know that I agree with you 100%.

  6. I finally met somebody that I can fantasize about pushing off a bridge....

  7. I find it interesting that YCM clearly displays me as an advanced member yet the rank shows me as a newbie. 😁

  8. I've been here for 12 years and I'm a newbie?

  9. What's an equip spell that prevents a monster from being destroyed by battle?

      Horu

      Is it generic?

    3. Sleepy

      Sleepy

      Yes Moon Mirror Shield is generic. Its effect is that whenever the equipped monster battles, you always win the battle by 100 ATK no matter what.
      Other options are "Mist Body" "equipped monster cannot be destroyed by battle". or "Heart of Clear Water" (which prevents the monster from being destroyed by battle or destroyed by targeting effects). They are all generic. Clear Water self-destroys if the equipped monster has more than 1300 ATK but otherwise that is generic too.

      I'll add all 3

  10. Couldn't they just errata Graceful Charity to require you to have a minimum of 2 cards in your hand to activate it's effect? Or require you to have less than 5 cards in your hand to activate Pot of Greed?

      That much is true. It also occurred to me that Graceful Charity is a breakeven and still banned. Pot of Greed is obviously a +1 so not really sure how to fix that.

    3. God Emperor Cow

      God Emperor Cow

      iirc one of charity's issues is that in ygo discarding is sometimes a good thing

    4. Horu

      Horu

      You mean like if I added Graceful Charity to a Blue-Eyes deck and discarded 2 WSoL from my hand?

  11. Can Charizard control how hot its flames are? Just wondering since sometimes it melts boulders and ice and instantly evaporates water and other times it barely bothers Ash.

      Charizard would never use his flame on somebody weaker than itself so that implies that Ash is in the same league as it. 😂😂😂

      It was established in the anime all Fire-types control the temperature of their flames, shown as Ash learned to ride a Rapidash.

    4. Horu

      Horu

      I knew Ponyta/Rapidash could but then again the flame in question on them is their mane. Also, Moltres is also able to control the temperature of its flame since it shows when it encircles Ash in its flames and doesn't burn him.

  12. Taekwondo rules confuse me. How is it a foul to punch my opponent in the face when I get rewarded for delivering a gazillion tornado kicks to the side of their head?

    1. Dokutah Jolly

      Dokutah Jolly

      I never practice any martial art but to my knowledge unless the art or certain moves specified to kill , asian martial art in general is never meant to harm even the enemies and more about spiritual control, honor, with a bonus ability to decent self-defences. and Taekwondo, is quite adamant about uphelding this trope. the side and the back of your head is quite protected with the spine and the thicker portion of the skull which much more stronger than structure that compose your face. It also meant to prevent damage to "vitals" like eyes. 

      Well if any of the site's resident taekwondo or any asian martial art practitioner can correct my ironic and horrible explaination, you very much welcome

      Also, in Muay Thai, the push kick is a technique that is considered disrespectful as it is a sign of disrespect to touch someone with the bottom of your foot in Thailand.

      I thought that was how you used to be able to do it, but it wasn't working, let me test this real quick:

      Wow this worked?

      Or in case it didn't work: Wow, this didn't work!

      Drinking any amount over any span of time is ill advised. The concoction literally renders one's blood sticky.

      Does it? Is it because it contains raw glucose?

  15. So I found my shoebox card collection whilst hunting for my untainted Harpie Girl and learned I have a lot of cool cards.

    1. TheBlackCatter

      TheBlackCatter

      Cool, what are some of the notable cards?

      Apparently I have Wattail Dragon and Darklord Zerato, Horus the Black Flame Lv4, Lv6 and Lv8, 2 Blue-Eyes White Dragons and a few others. Aside from the 2 BEWDs, the others were a total surprise to me.

  16. Somebody explain to me how you can sit there and tell yourself that you aren't good enough then look around to realize that no one would actually be able to manage half the shit you do in zombie mode.

      There's likely a lot more factoring into the individual's situation than their own personal opinion. Although, if it were just the DK effect, you would be pretty on point.

  17. Somehow, I'm back up on the board despite not actually posting any content of my own and actually taking a break from doing so while I work on my projects.

      the fact you keep bringing this up is telling

    2. Horu

      Horu

      My projects are more important for the time being. That's why I haven't posted any threads of my own. Well, that and the fact that I'm far too busy to sit down and drop a well thought out archetype.

  18. Konami is working on an Eyes of Red Archetype to balance out the Eyes of Blue Archetype

      The status was really a test because I plan on dividing my sets up into spoilers.

  19. Maybe an old friend will get a kick out of this.

      I'm working on cards. Not really an active member of the community for a while. You can reach me on discord.

  23. 10 days and I will be taking a very long vacation from YCM.

  24. So I learned that a horse can kick something in the jaw with enough force to crack its forehead open. This is a scary thought.

      That's how my great great grandfather died.

      Yeah. Saw a video where a mare kicked a stallion in the chin and the force split its head open. Pretty much insta-killed him.
