  1. Monaka's too strong?

    Doesn't get around Barrier. 0/10
  2. Draft Box 2 Info

    It's a silly symptom of Japanese card games where they believe people will make counterfeits if the images are big enough. A stupid notion in line with "Vegeta's Destruction Blast" because calling the card "Vegeta's Big Bang Attack" will somehow destroy the franchise even though the last Bandai DB game had a Big Bang Attack card.
  3. Set 4 just got revealed and all I got was this stupid t-shirt

    I wouldn't mind if it was Batman: The Animated Series with Batman Beyond. If it's more comic stuff with images that have been used to death, pass.
  4. Future Sets

    Goku can always go back to doing ally/drill things other MPs do better especially without a new stack. You have to consider that SS3 will most likely be a single level. Which 1-3 will people use? Would it shock you if it was just Awakening? At some point, his new transformations and higher ceilings in Super become extremely difficult to design because Awakening was so poorly and generically designed in the first place. People will have no reason to stop playing Awakening otherwise. Maybe more God trait things but that's a long time from now. Even then unless the next SSG is also level 1, our SSG is already outclassed by Awakening 1. For risk of breaking Black's self-mill support, this won't change. Thematically I like the risky high damage angle. The issue is Awakening 4 already has a free +2/-2 life modifier and a free card from anywhere. So yes, you'd have to outdo that for it to see play. If SS3 supports the drill or ally theme on his old stacks, you have to Unleashed/Kaio-Ken through bad levels or go Awakening 1-3 anyway changing nothing. I don't mind being wrong but Awakening Goku exists and it's dumb so Fan Z has a tough job no thanks to Panini. If SS3 is underdesigned and no one plays it, it's Panini's fault. If they outdo Awakening 4, that's not helping either but is also Panini's fault for raising the ceiling too high.
  5. Future Sets

    While the Fan Z sets have problems, I think the majority of them are minor or juuuust acceptable enough. The major problems are still the Panini cards. Skill-less trash like Awakening Goku and Unleashed. I'm curious what Super Saiyan 3 Goku and the forms from Super are going to do to top it. You have to top it if anyone's going to play those over the Awakening levels. Yeah, Goku's not winning events nor is he unbeatable but you're playing at somewhat of a disadvantage right from the start unless your card quality's better than his. Unpopular opinion incoming. You're not wrong about the meta based on results, but I feel that because the game isn't officially backed and there's less at stake (generally speaking), people aren't bringing all the gross decks. Oppressive Vegeta's a brain dead deck that doesn't exactly take a lot of skill to play. It rewards you for nothing and locks your opponent out of playing the game. It's not unbeatable but it's so stupidly uninteractive that I'm surprised it isn't dominating. Same with some other decks. The relaxed meta is great because people are taking things that probably wouldn't be their first choice if this was still Pan Z. There's a Restored Gohan/Empowered Broly out there. You know it. I know it. They're just not showing up in droves.
  6. Future Sets

    I wish they would do GT and even though they said they wouldn't, you can make the excuse that chronologically Super takes place before so Super takes priority. Honestly we have plenty of content that'll last us a while. We haven't even gotten to key elements of the Buu Saga yet and then there's 2+ movie sets. Kami forbid but who's to say this'll even last through Super? You'll have to settle for beard Vegeta with a side of beard Goku.
  7. Favorite MP

    Competitively I think we can add Awakening Vegeta. The ridiculous level manipulation into passes is appalling with Saiyan Oppressive Mastery.
  8. Future TCGs

    If we're talking Awakening cash grabs, let's not forget the one Dragon Rare per box. While the cards themselves are accessible through starters, what was the problem with doing the three starter foils per box like in Evolution? Super's release schedule for the year is insane. In the short time this game has existed, they have gone above and beyond what I've seen in any other game in terms of product releases. No breathing room to enjoy a set because the next one's in two months. A new product pretty much every month, some of which retail for $100 a piece. Not to mention the excessive amounts of necessary promos you may or may not have access to. In some ways they have every reason to be overconfident but this is too much and I hope they get burned for it. All Panini had beyond your standard booster set was starter decks every three sets and a Comic-Con promo each year. That was plenty.
  9. DBS 2018 Product Releases and Nationals Confirmed

    Maybe neo Bandai run by the Japanese folks. The old Bandai's card games can have excessive SR+ counts which like this game is awful in its own right but there wasn't a brand new product every or even every other month.
  10. DBS 2018 Product Releases and Nationals Confirmed

    I've said something to this effect before but I don't know how they went from a nice and reasonable 8 SRs and 12 Rs in set 1 to 14 SRs, 18 Rs, a SCR for no reason, and dash packs (especially since they're not just box toppers) for no reason. I mean, they have every reason/right to do this but it's really annoying. Their greed surpassed all my expectations. I don't know where they found the time to go from set 1's player-friendly counts and underestimating sales to the insanity of all these products. I can't think of another card game that vomited this much product in this time frame. And it's not like they're reprint sets or a starter here and there. These are full booster sets and $100 products, at least that's what they're asking. Arguably the draft boxes are skippable because you should just buy the leaders separately (Who alone is buying four of these to get the leaders anyway?) but really now. And this ultimate box is another $100 product. ALL of those cards better be foil... Maybe they won't even bother addressing Mecha Frieza because they already know there's something worse in the works. He'll be a cupcake soon enough. Why let metas settle when there's a new one you have to worry about potentially every month?
  11. Where the HFIL is Piccolo?

    They keep teasing that one artwork of him for promotions/mats/boxes, but he's nowhere to be seen. If he wasn't a 10k draw in set 1, he'd have no representation in any deck... I understand why they do it but we don't need a Goku leader every set. The red one from set 2 was a complete waste.
  12. Fu, Shrouded In Mystery

    You never know with this game. Kale just got better with her specific support and is an early play card. You can argue Fu's already chump change and can only go lower (though not as low as Meta Cooler SPR...). Right now we need to see if Bandai does anything to Mecha Frieza or if the game slows down so you can actually drop Fu without losing the game for it more often than not.
  13. Box of set 3. What to do

    Sorry to hear that. A terrible predicament. For some reason this set is worthless. Are a majority of the SRs THAT bad or has the game become too fast for the high cost characters? Only low costers like Caulifla, Kid Goku, and Pan are worth more than a pack. Ultra Instinct Goku as well but I think that has more to do with him being "new" and "wow". Only pulling the SCR SS4 Goku will get you towards breaking even on 115. Otherwise you're going to lose A LOT of money. Even at 75, unless you pull Shugesh foil and/or any SPR except Fu you'll lose money as no combination of SRs alone will help you break even. Your other option is to gamble on the eight foils being a combination of all the money cards but that's super unlikely as well. Getting screwed on the dash packs really doesn't help because Cabba and/or Vegeta have some value. Too late now but could you not have told the guy you only bought the box thinking there would be events and try returning it? It'd be low of him not to but then again, no dash packs...
  14. Fu, Shrouded In Mystery

    Upon reading it, the card sounds like a clincher but the game has become too fast for this guy to be worth the resources to play him. He'd basically cost your whole field/turn and if he gets Bloodlusted...
  15. Set 3 Secret Rare - SS4 Goku

    When will the favoritism end?
