  1. Ultimate Box Info

    First off, $100 seems like an absolutely ridiculous price for what it comes with. The value of this box sucks for anyone who doesnt collect and play all styles. This product features many of the same problems that people had with the expansion deck box sets: It will be difficult to find people willing to break up the play sets they got from this box Scarcity of product (or hoarding product and jacking prices as some stores do) will lead to the better cards (ie: meta) becoming insanely expensive Due to the above, players focused on a specific style will need to pay high prices for individual cards Some of the support look great, some of it looks (much of it, after a second look) half-baked. The 5-cost Cell is very intriguing when you consider building a deck around evolving into him with the 3 drop Cell or play with Cells Birth. The A17 card you mentioned is really cool; I wish they would design more stuff like this rather than putting a paragraph of text on a card. The 2-cost Goku Jr that can have Swap 8 for 5 energy is too good. Masked Saiyan offers a cool effect and I really interested to see its impact on the meta. My guess is that Starterku makes a comeback. Overall, some cool stuff, but I really cant see it ever being worth $100.
  2. Set 4 Green Revealed on Website Today

    Glad there is finally a Piccolo leader. But the real reason I came here today was just to say how disappointed I am in the direction of this game. I've been glancing at the cards previewed for the next set and am just unimpressed with their design. Effects like "draw a card," "switch 1 energy to active mode," and "send an opponent's battle card to the warp/drop" are on a great deal of cards, with many cards getting two or all three of these effects. Some of the new archetypes look neat and fun to play, but I wish they would be more creative. ETA: A few extra gripes No keyword yet for sending battle cards to the drop or warp? Long overdue. Same with effects like switching an energy to active mode. New cards that say "choose an opponent's card ignoring barrier..." just seems like sloppy design. If you're going to do this just make a keyword [Pierce].
  3. Nintendo E3 Direct

    I didn't plan on quitting DBS a month ago but that's pretty much how it is playing out. I haven't gone to any tournaments I said I would, havent hit up any drafts; hell, my wife and I only got a few games in over the last month. I still want to draft some time but I haven't been paying much attention to new stuff at all. Getting into D&D really phased DBS out of my hobby rotation. I don't even own a Switch and I'm excited for a new Smash. Ridley is an awesome addition. From what I read, the damage scales different depending on the number of players that started the match; so damage is higher in 1v1 than a 4-man free-for-all, which is awesome. New Gamecube controllers made for this game too; perhaps they saw pro player's crutching on old controllers or the Smashbox and finally decided to compete? Maybe they'll start having a hand in competitive play? Nintendo had their stuff together this year (I think they're on a roll at this point). Companies like Squeenix, on the other hand, advertised big things and then shit bricks.
  4. ToP SCR

    @Denithan, check my math again. The 5 cost yellow Goku activates one energy, play senzu or combo trunks and then you have the two energy needed for both of the ex-evolves to get to the scr Goku. eta: in regards to Mafuba, the ruling with the 12 drop whis sets precedent. You CAN play Mafuba, but the attack is not negated. Instead, that part whiffs and then the next part happens, so Mafuba is placed on top of the attacking card and THEN the attack fizzles because it is no longer a battler card. So, it does work, but in a strange way.
  5. ToP SCR

    Turn 1 Power - 2 Energy Turn 2 , play energy, play objection; 4 energy Turn 3, play energy to get to 5, play yellow Goku for 5 and get 1 energy back. Senzu or Combo Trunks to get to 2 energy, giving you enough to ex-evolve into the scr.
  6. ToP SCR

    I like the idea of G/Y Cell using the new Goku SCR, it definitely jives with the way I play him. My first idea for the new SCR is actually a Vegito deck using the red leader. It is the only leader that can use Kind Saiyan Goku to search for the SCR. In addition to that, Full Power Spirit Bomb Goku has additional utility in that it is an energy that can pay for any color.
