Subject: Reply to Rant, from the
My name is Jim(I won't tell you my last
name because I'm fed up with being refered to as 'him'). Well, on the
boards I'm known as The Alpha Avihowl.
I started to seriously play the Pokemon tcg in March, even
though I was late for the league opening I still joined, and it was two days
after my fifteenth birthday, and I was PO'ed because I had talent at the game
and I didn't think I could attend the ECSTS. But I did after they revoked
that dolt move. Unfortunately, in the STS I came with a crappy deck and I
had to make a new one with boosters I got for the second day.
Even though I played really crappy I head one of the best
times of my life, the only time that could top it was when I got to go hunting
for the first time. I never got to play in the WCSTS because my parents
would never let me go to San Diego.
The point is I love Pokemon, I don't care for Magic, I mean,
it's not to difficult, but I started with Pokemon and I won't quit it unless I
die. Nothing against Magic, but in my personnal opinion, it's stupid(note;
my personnal opinion I have nothing against people who play it).
Reasons why Wizards should keep 15+;
1) Newton's 3rd law of motion "For every action there is an
equal but opposite reaction" Wizards pushes us, we push back, and we out
2) They should encourage us to play Pokemon more, they see
Pokemon as our training ground for Magic, but we put in a large chunk of change,
and then little kids see us playing Pokemon and want to be 'like the big kids',
if they see us playing Magic and they try, they fail because they cannot
comprehend it, they'll go away with negative feelings. Also, we'd be
spending money on both games, which is more money for them.
3) If older(15+) kids play it, adults won't think it's as
stupid as they originally thought(most adults have a bit
more respect for us than a 10 year old), they may actually try it
If Wizards was smart, then they'd keep it, or else they'll
just "wizz" all over they're profits.
