  1. New Pan vs New Caulifla

    I understand what you mean, and it is situation depending, but for me considering how many Double and Triple Strikers there are, and how easy it is to get them out in this meta, it is just too much of a risk imo
  2. New Pan vs New Caulifla

    You are right, I forgot about that. With that in mind, I would argue that leaders like Vegeta and Caulifa are blank once they hit 3 life, because in this meta putting yourself that low on purpose is suicide.
  3. New Pan vs New Caulifla

    This is true, but I feel like with Vegeta he wasn't dead in the water once he couldn't use his ability anymore. He still had his boost from having energy. Once you are too low, Caluifa essentially becomes a blank card outside of being able to draw on the attack. Just my two cents.
  4. San Jose ARG Cheating Scandal

    So some unfortunate news from Day 2 of the San Jose ARG yesterday. Not just the fact that 29 of the Top 32 decks were all Mecha Frieza, but cheating was caught live on stream and a MASSIVE Judge mistake followed because of it. I don't remember the player's names, but the clip can easily be found on Twitch. It was a Top 8 match, so it was streamed and being watched by a Judge. Player A uses Zen-Oh, The Plain God to Fiber Jar Player B's field. Player B, in error, scoops up his energy as well. Zen-Oh only takes the cards on the battlefield. This being an irreparable game state, an automatic loss should have been given to Player B. Not only does that NOT happen, the Judge in question intervenes, tells Player B to put his energy back and continue the game... and that isn't even the end of it. Then Player A plays March of the Great Apes, but waits for his opponent to respond with a counter BEFORE tapping the energy to play the card (and not committing to using Mecha Frieza's ability), then Player B plays Bloodlust, Player A uses Bad Ring Laser, THEN taps the energy for March of the Great Apes. Like... what in the actual hell? This isn't some dinky 10 man local. This is in Top 8 of the last Regional of the season, which purportedly had 500 entrants. Personally I can't believe this was all allowed to happen, and is disheartening for players who have not attended a Regional, or who have and are deciding whether or not to go again. The Judge test is a joke (they haven't started interviewing for the Level 2 Judge Exam yet), and allegedly (this is a rumor, completely unsubstantiated fyi) this is not the first time this Judge has allowed exactly the same thing to happen in the Zen-Oh situation. We all know this is a card game, but people put a lot of time and A LOT of money into it, especially when you consider the people that travel to events and pay for airfare/hotel, etc. Something like this is really bad to see, and for such a young game can really hurt it competitively. What say you, Top Tier? What can be done to stop situations like this from happening again? Sound off below.
  5. New Pan vs New Caulifla

    Something that I feel everyone keeps overlooking is that Caulifa has a built in timer to her ability. Once she is awakened, using her ability more than one or two more times is essentially suicide.
  6. So what does the list look like now?
  7. Deck testing

    I actually do that A LOT when I am practicing for a game. It helps me play my deck and learn the other deck as well.
  8. Monaka's too strong?

    No, it means that if this is the only card on your side of the field you can bounce one of your opponent's cards to the top of their deck. So you have to have an empty field to use this effect, therefore, it isn't very good. The only thing it can kinda help against is a Turn 3 Cell Chain, but then you would only have two cards left in your hand so it still isn't that good. tl;dr it sucks lol
  9. I REALLY like this idea... Following... lol
  10. New Pan vs New Caulifla

    Unless Caulifa gets crazy support (which I don't see happening) Pan is the go to 100%
  11. Tournament of Power Set

    That is about my only hope/interest for this set. If that happens I'll just pick up a playset if it is good for Droid decks.
  12. Tournament of Power Set

    Surprised I didn't make a thread of this already lol First subset for the game, all focused on a specific theme, this being the Tournament of Power. General Info: http://www.dbs-cardgame.com/us-en/product/dbs-tb01.php Red cards were revealed today, all based on Universe 6 and 7 Card List: http://www.dbs-cardgame.com/us-en/cardlist/?search=true&category=428101 They seem interesting, but nothing at the moment stands out as "OH MAN GOTTA PLAY THIS". I do REALLY like the new Hit card from a design and flavor perspective. He protects himself so you can play Lightning Fast Hit the next turn. He literally goes between dimensions. I just love the flavor of that.
  13. Tournament of Power Set

    My mistake, Mecha confused me. In other news, I no longer care about this leader now lol
  14. Draft Box 2 Info

    http://www.dbs-cardgame.com/product/dbs-box02.php Same as last time with 4 new leaders, 12 Set 2 and 12 Set 3 packs, and a TP3 pack. They really screwed the pooch with Mecha Frieza so I am scared of what they will come up with here...
  15. Is mecha still playable?

    I feel like any mildly competent tournament deck would rofltstomp all over it.
  16. Tournament of Power Set

    No specified cost. Which means you don't have to pay the specific color cost. So like the 2 drop Goku and Vegeta would be free, but the 5 drop Majin Buu would cost 4.
  17. Well I am noticing a lot of Rebirth art, not just New 52. So that is something at least.
  18. Completely destroy

    I agree with going with Protective Future Gohan
  19. Draft Box 2 Info

    Draft Leaders revealed! Hercule is straight garbage and not even in a fun way, which is disappointing. The rest are "eh". Caulifla seems ok at best. http://www.dbs-cardgame.com/us-en/product/dbs-box02.php
  20. I was actually gonna make a post about this. I am kind of the opposite. I am actually hype for Batman. Like, may actually consider playing hype lol If they make Batman Beyond cards tho???? That'll be it, I'll be on board lol
  21. Mecha Frieza

    So I went to a Cross Worlds release tournament on Saturday, out of 98 entrants I got 35th place with Starterku. However I can honestly say that this is the first time I have not had fun playing this game, and that is because of Mecha Frieza. Mecha Apes and Mecha GT are the absolute worst thing to happen to this game. Turn 2/3 kills are more common than not, the decks can awaken on turns 2/3, and flood the board with a 10+ card hand in the same period. It is Yu-Gi-Oh levels of degenerate. Bandai attempted to address the issue, but their response was more insulting imo than anything: http://www.dbs-cardgame.com/strategy/cross-worlds/mecha-frieza.php Their answer apparently is to play two god awful decks, one of them being a Cell deck with no 17's... I am taking a break from the game for awhile until they fix it, which will hopefully be soon. The game is in a BAD space right now, and I can only hope that Bandai doesn't turn this into another Naruto/Power Rangers/Digimon/*insert Bandai CCG name here* (and yes I know those were all Bandai of America but obviously the apple doesn't fall far from the tree) Anyone else experiencing these problems? Sound off below.
  22. Mecha Frieza

    No that I absolutely agree with. Them trying to downplay its effectiveness in their reasoning is what irks me.
  23. Mecha Frieza

    Here is the official response: https://m.facebook.com/permalink.php?story_fbid=353456895060710&id=196669717406096 While I am grateful they changed it (because they should have) their logic is completely ridiculous and contradictory. I guess we should just be thankful they did it at all.
  24. Mecha Frieza

    This was posted by Bandai then almost immediately taken down, most likely because they were saving it for Friday and goofed.
