  1. Expansion Set Reveals! Full List!

    I really like these new cards. Time Ruler Towa seems like a very hard counter to Miraculous Gohan. Other than that, not sure why I'd use it. Mira, From the Darkness is a great pressure card, espescially if you can get one out before your opponent awakens. Overall, the black cards seem kinda neat. Comrades Combined Vegeta....wow that card is good. A 2 cost / 20k beater is definitely ahead of the curve. Vegito leader loves this card. Comrades Combined Goku is neat and seems to open up Vegito decks to run more blue than they do now. The new Goten and Trunks are just sick and really help that type of deck. So much board control in a green Gotenks deck.
  2. Oversaturation

    I also feel product is being rushed out a bit without enough quality control. Even set 2 has a handful of interactions, and even leaders, that seem like they werent fully tested. Bandai is certainly doing a good job marketing though. This game is getting huge. This game's first big hurdle is going to be when the first rotation hits.
  3. Oversaturation

    Foil Prince of Speed still goes for about $8, non foil for like $4.50. Those prices have been relatively stable, which makes sense given that it is basically the only value card in the starter deck. The people selling starter deck exclusives upon release are trying to make money and thus, the combined selling price of the exclusives will exceed their cost. So, anyone wanting ALL of the starter deck exclusives are better off buying a starter deck, but if you only want some of the exclusives then yeah it makes sense to go to the secondary market. With two new starters coming out we'll likely see the same thing; the exclusive cards will be the only thing worth anything. It turns a starter deck from something made to introduce people to the game into a product that exists to distribute staple cards at a set price.
  4. Oversaturation

    I can't be the only one who is starting to get bogged down after seeing the upcoming releases for this game. We've got two deck box "expansion" sets being released this month and in March a new set that includes two starter decks, each containing cards exclusive to the deck. Then we have themed boosters coming out. To me, this just seems like a bit too much product to have. I really love collecting sets so that I can make whatever deck I want when I want, but with so much product coming out I'm really starting to question if it is going to be worth continue playing. It wouldnt be so bad if the starter decks and deck box sets didn't come with exclusive cards, as getting playsets of the exclusives takes 2 purchases of each product. So to get a playset of these exclusives it'll be about $120 (2 of each new starter, 2 of each new deck box set). Sure, not everyone needs playsets, but even if you only want 1-2 copies of a card you'd still have to purchase these products. The deck boxes themselves will be close to worthless as people will be buying that product FOR the promos. People on this forum have criticized Bandai before about how they treat their customers like cash cows and I'm starting to become convinced. It is unfortunate because this game has an ENORMOUS scene, but eventually players like me will be driven out of the game due to having too much shit to collect. This doesnt even touch on the promo situation; 8 exclusive tournament promos pet set, BCC promos, etc. Can I get the forum's thoughts on this?
  5. I agree with Vile that there are just too many promos out for a game that only has two sets out.
  6. Best decks for this 3 please :$

    I still like Hit, his awakened ability is very useful against decks that run the A16 or Whis blocker cards. For Goku Black you can run him in a blue/red deck that isnt too expensive since it doesnt run the Goku Black SR or promos. It's called Babidi Black and pretty much focuses on using blue ramp and the leader ramp to drop the 6-cost Babidi. Vile is right when he points out Gotenks is pretty much a better version of Broly. He has a very similar effect and does not have to rely on Broly's Ring, Paragus, and Bio-Army. The only thing Broly has that Gotenks does not is the Bio-Army loop. Broly is still fun to play, but I got tired of relying on getting the Ring early.
  7. Let's build a deck: Vegito

    Sure, it might not be a tier 1 deck but I still have tons of fun playing my Vegito deck. It's alot of fun to overwhelm your opponent with the 7-drop early on.
  8. Rules primer - counter timings - Play vs Attack

    So, they basically made it more confusing while trying to make it less confusing. What do you mean about Revenge not triggering after a negate? I thought it still activated even if the attack is negated; is that incorrect?
  9. Expansion Set Reveal!

    I just dont see how a colorless, 1-cost card with 20k, double strike, and board removal is a good idea when it comes to balancing the game. I also now fear that the introduction of black style essentially being non-styled opens the possibility that the next SCR is going to be a staple in all decks.
  10. Expansion Set Reveal!

    It does worry me a bit to see a non-styled card that can be summoned for 1 energy and has board removal; it just seems too good and can be run in any deck. I'm just not a fan of making non-styled cards that have so much to offer. I'm interested to see if black will really be non-styled; Bandai mentions that the new black cards "of this product" have no specified costs, leaving it open that the whole style might not be like this? In order for people to consider running the 2-cost black cards they're going to need some good effects for the cost. I'm hoping more drop zone interaction is added to the game to make "warping" the cards in your drop area have more impact on the game.
  11. Rules primer - counter timings - Play vs Attack

    Does that mean you got official clarification from Bandai on this? What was changed?
  12. Rules primer - counter timings - Play vs Attack

    It looks like the rule manual was updated and 7-1-1 and 7-1-2 now show the order after attack was changed from: counter > auto > blocker to auto > blocker > counter
  13. I thought the same thing at first but it makes more sense to me now after playing through 3 drafts with the same group of friends. Having only the one leader puts everyone on more equal footing for the tournament which I think makes the drafting experience more fun.
  14. Orlando Regionals

    The regional was awesome and ARG ran it really well. DBS was the largest turnout by FAR! We took up half of the convention room. I dropped after going something like 2-3 and played in a box tournament where I lost in the second round. Players were generally nice and judges were quick. Me and three friends eventually all dropped and bought two draft boxes, which we played that night at the hotel room and the next day at my friend's apartment. Biggest cons were: No food allowed, so me and my friends had to run to the car between rounds to get some snacks in us. There was one concession stand, which wasn't enough. It wasnt open early on and closed before we left. After round 4/5 tensions between players were noticeably rising. Box tournament entry was $20 a head; so $160 in entries to play for a box the organizers get for below MSRP. 3rd-8th did get TP2 and 2nd got an ARG playmat, but this still seems a bit excessive and many people were complaining. $15/per person ($120 total) would make them less money per box tournament but would make up for it by getting more tournaments going.
  15. Draft Box Leaders

    Ha, so it appears people were able to figure out Frieza rather quickly to make it incredibly effective. Draft Frieza took 12 of the Top 32 spots; the most represented leader by far with Cell at 6 and both Blue Vegeta and Starter Goku with 4. I dropped after 5 rounds and only played 1; I played against alot of red though.
