To Whom It May Concern:
This letter is in regards to the recent rumors(which I have no doubt will
be true) about WotC eliminating the 15+. This is the last straw for me. Wizards
has made so many critical mistakes, so many horribly dumb moves and exhibited
thier poor management that it is a wonder anyone still plays their games. I can
sumarize this entire article into one sentance: Wizards is CRAZY!
I am in the same boat as many of you are. I am 13 years old and devoted to
pokemon. I own 3 magic cards, have no idea what to do with them and don't really
care (no offense to magic players, I'm sure its a fun game but its not for me).
Over the last years, I have spent a great deal of money and time in this game. I
brought many friends into it and as the fad faded, they sold thier cards. Of
course, they moved on to Magic and other such games and went through the cycle
again. Now, I am most certainly not ranked high in the DCI. I play origanal
decks mostly at the legue. I took the 2 hour trip to the qualifier and didn't do
very well but I still had a great time. By the time of the next STS, I will be
14. This puts me in a horrible place. I can blow my money away, do well in the
competition and then throw my cards away or I can keep my money, compete but
lose to players with bigger pockets and then trow my cards away. I love the game
but if there was any choice I would not buy from Wizards.
I suport Ness completly and I will take this kicking and screaming. There
is one solution I can think of to stop Wizard's, for lack of a better phrase,
evil plan. All readers and devoted players, please sent as many e-mails as u
possibly can to Wizards. It worked with tuna and the dolphins are very thankful.
Please protect the game from those dumb executives that only want to add more to
their large bed of gold.
Thank you for reading and please respond. I know of stores that do not
carry pokemon because they way wizards is run. Wizards may not care about one 13
year old from Ohio worried that he will lose his place to compete but if we can
send enough letters from around the country and hopefully the world, we can
convince them to stop discriminating against older players.
I'm sorry if this offended anyone (unless it offended some wizards manager,
in which case I would be happy). Please send responses or decks to fix to firstname.lastname@example.org
God Bless the USA
POKEMON PLAYERS UNITE!
