Preferred Pronoun Set: Mr.
Starting a new one here as I foresee the Duels forum more than likely dying in the next couple of years as all the old DOTP and console (when it's released on them) people will concentrate here.
Some great times over there. Some really choice moments captured in time but under the sun all things pass.
It's great to have you here!

It’s not a proper off topic thread unless mjack has made 1,456 posts about anime

I've watched one Anime in the last 8 months. One time through.

One Punch Man is not as good as people say it is. It's not bad. But it's not as clever as people made it out to be.

^ But one of my friends who was in town has stopped playing video games for a while, so we needed something to do the last time he wanted to hang out for a day. BBQ and One Punch Man was it.

------

The industry as a whole has turned into what people think/thought it is/was. There's nothing worth watching anymore.

For those of you who can't tell I'm doing a bit, I am doing a bit.

For those of you who can tell, this is the panel where it stops being funny.

Edit: For those of you who don't like Pikachu, I'm very very sorry.

I check these forums while waiting to get into the beta.

Basically nowhere else on the internet cares about MTG: Arena.

I don't comment much because no one cares about my opinion.

Edit: On a side note, the old DOTP forums no longer look like a game of Pokemon Go gone horribly wrong.

2nd Edit: I'm wondering what people who log in and didn't see the original version of this thread are going to think of the nonsense within.

I care about your opinion, silly. I’m glad you’re here.

For better or worse I have not gotten to play it despite signing up immediately, so I don't currently have an opinion on Hearthstone the Gathering: Arena.

I'm hoping I get in eventually, but at this point in time I basically consider my chances of getting in worse than the chances of people letting me play Forest without freaking out.

Edit: A little bit of exploration never hurts though. I now have a Switch, an XBone, and a PS4 so I can basically play anything else I want.

... May 25th is going to suck.

You may just be on a high because now your nonsense makes more sense than my nonsense.

I understand why this one was upvoted.

*hears noise at door*

*5 minutes later*

An army of robotic Richard Simmons clones has shown up outside and I have been instructed to under no circumstances explain why this one was upvoted.

That last one had the most comedic timing so I wanted to show where you should have ended it. The next post ruins’d it.

Lol at the Simmons clone army

Also that avatar is so perfect

Why does Whirlwind for 3 energy count as damaging The Guardian once but damaging a Spiker 3 times?

Mega Crit, I need consistency here. This is not Schrödinger's Whirlwind we are talking about. Either it counts as one attack or 3 attacks. Make up your mind and code it so that in the future when new enemies come out I can tell what the frick is going to happen when I play a deck against someone with Bronze Scales or Caltrops.

Also that avatar is so perfect


It took me 10 minutes to make. It better be perfect.

It's depressing that I signed up for MTG: Arena on the first day it was available, they started doing non-priority access in early Jan, and I still can't get into the darn thing.

I have about 2 weeks off coming up. With my luck I'll get a beta invite the day after those 16 days are up, if I get one at all.

Edit: It's probably for the best tbh. No one wants me posting on the beta forums.

Between Gwent, Hearthstone, and two other games that shall remain un-named; I have grown to completely hate F2P card games.

Reason: I hate nerfs. For a variety of reasons. Some games treat it like a game of whack a mole, others just became bland as shrak, and so on. But the real reason I hate them is that they basically punish you for investing in a powerful deck. Sure, that one card that got nerfed can get dusted for full value. But all the other cards you put tons of resources into? That's all wasted value now.

I hate hate hate nerfs.

My hope for MTG: Arena is that it's going to be different b/c the game is based on physical cards you can't nuke nerf into oblivion. But everything I'm hearing about the economy makes it sound depressing in its own fashion.

This article:

https://rngeternal.com/2018/03/28/going ... a-economy/

is currently the top thread on the MTGA subreddit:

https://www.reddit.com/r/MagicArena/com ... a_economy/

This kind of thing is why I'm genuinely worried about the future of MTG:A.
