Don't you guys play games for fun? This isn't for a prize or anything.

All this seriousness is making me want to play something even sillier and bust out my Kanan the Swordmistress deck. :D

Eliminated the dupe rule, just everyone use common sense. Its a fun tourney, don't go overly hardcore.


Edit: Mystic, you ninja'd me :lol:
Tournaments are an inherently competitive event by design. If you just want to have fun with silly decks then theres not much point in a tournament. You might aswell just go play together?

I tighten the rules, you complain.
I loosen the rules, you complain.
I eliminate the rules, you still complain.

Just play and have fun.

Doing anything that's a hobby is inherently for fun.
If you're not having fun, what's the point?

I have probably lost every card game, tournament or otherwise, I've played against members of this site.
Alright, I've possibly won a few, but definitely lost the majorty.
I still had fun.

Have you never played a deck that wasn't meta, or had a card in your deck
that wasn't considered "good", but you liked it anyway?

I have occassionally put Blue-Eyes Ultimate Dragon into Extra Decks of Decks that couldn't use it. :P

That's usually my style. Anime style decks are usually the best and I have the most fun. No OP cards and nothing meta related just playing a personal character deck. I've made my own character decks for every era of Yugioh and have always found the most fun with them.

Hmm going Anime-Style isn't that bad, so you can pick a duellist and either go for their whole deck spectrum or use a more focused deck on a centerpiece, like Blue-Eyes.

Or even go down the Chibi Card route, you pick a card as your Deck Centerpiece and build the deck around it:

That might be the most unexpected deck combo I've ever heard.
Sounds fun :)

EDIT: For brackets to work, we'll need either 1 or 3 more teams. Are there another 6 active forum members?

A few things about YGOpro from couple of quick games.
I Transmodify my B with a C equip. It doesn't give me the option to activate B/C in the chain links I want.
During my opponents turn, it doesn't give me the option to react when they move phases or summons monsters with cards that don't specifically respond to summons.
How do you add people?
What is checkmate server?

As far as I can tell, the Checkmate server is a private, ranked server that you have to sign up for.
It tells you the website to go to to sign up, but I haven't bothered, I just use the YGOPRO servers.
They only have ones for EU and USA, but I've had no problems playing on the EU server from here in the US.

Add people how? Like a friends list or something?
I don't think they have one of those, although I could be wrong.
Adding people to a duel, you can only wait for them to enter your game.

I also find it weird/annoying that I can't activate Trap Cards during my opponent's phase without something to react to.
Not every Trap Card reacts to something, but it seems impossible to start a chain with one.
Plenty of Contiunous Traps, for example, can just as easily go off as chain link 1, but you can't do it.
A lot of the times they won't let me make a Trap chain link 1 until the End Phase starts even though there's no timing issues.
And, yes, that is a flaw that if you have simultaneous effects as the turn player, it usually forces the order even though you should have the choice.

That's what happens when you use an amateur made YGO game.
DN's problem was a lack of automation, allowing people to cheat or get rulings wrong,
and YGOPro's problem is that the automation isn't always perfect.
I have accidently interrupted the flow and it asked if I wanted to check if there was an effect I could use,
but it always seems to happen when I don't have something I actually want to activate.
The few times it's happened, I was either typing to talk, or I think I clicked at the right moment by accident.
One time it asked if I wanted to use an effect, and I thought it was an effect I forgot about so I clicked Yes.
However, there was nothing in my hand, grave, or on my field I could use, but since I clicked yes, the game wouldn't proceed
until I activated something. Luckily I was dueling the AI at the time, so I just quit the game since it was in limbo.

It's far from perfect, but what do you want for free?

Checkmate is free, I never pay for it and it's better if you just want lots of random duels to challenge your deck, though you should never use it to find people on. No sign-ups either.

Yeah, if you want to activate an effect during the end of a phase or start of the battle phase, you must click madly on the field trying to catch the right moment to do so.
