I think ness has a point, I
started when I was thirteen and played in my first qt when I was fourteen and
won an invitation to the east coast super trainer showdown. I've never had
that much fun, I couldn't wait till next year but then I found out they removed
the 15+ qt's, I was so mad. It's not fair. I have nothing against
magic but I like pokemon, and am happy with it. I have no intentions
of playing magic, and won't.
I had a great deck, and was doing well
playing it and had finally become a good player but couldn't win an
invitation. I don't have the money to get there, so I needed to win plane
ticket's. I'm not the biggest fan of flying but for the sts I would
go, so would hundreds of other people I'm sure.
I won't bet against it that they would
eliminate 15+ tournament's. I became a great player, and couldn't play for
ticket's? I didn't like that decision at all. I felt robbed. I
went to the New Brighton qt, and talked to the winner of a side tournament and
he got in the area of 8 packs. He paid $5 to enter, and he was mad
because the kid who won the qt got like 36 packs. I can't blame him I
would be mad, he paid $5, that kid didn't pay anything.
My dad, my friend Ken, as well as most
people 15+ all hated there decision, even people under fifteen hate
it. When they get over fifteen they might as well throw their
decks away. If they do eliminate 15+ qualifiers and you go play magic
that's exactly what wizard's wants and then they think they can manipulate
If they take away 15+ at the sts I'm still
staying with pokemon, they can't get me into magic that easy. I will fight
this battle until it's over. If we lose the fight we will go down
fighting, and I still won't play magic I'll just play at the pokemon
league. If I quit pokemon, I won't play magic. They will lose
two customers my dad and I. I spend over $150 on packs when new expansions
come around, not including packs between expansions.
Those magic judges don't know anything about
pokemon. The New Brighton qt had another judge not in uniform, I
don't think he was a dci judge but they didn't know about pokemon but he
did. You do see to much feraligatr now even though other decks sometimes
win, it's mostly feral decks. It's easier to beat than a sneasel deck but
if your pokemon only get one shot they can't do much.
I'm proud and honored to play pokemon. OH IT'S TRUE IT'S TRUE!
P.S. DON'T GIVE UP!
