#2

This past weekend taught me that if I want to do well, I need to actually test; I can’t do the whole “pick up a deck the morning of the event” thing anymore (other than Darkrai lol). I’ve been out of it too long. Not sure if I’ll continue to attend events this season. I’m either going to actually test and dedicate myself to the game, or quit. We’ll see what happens.


#3

Take a shot this year. With it being at 400 cp points, that is literally only 8 league cup wins. Go to a few regionals and all, but if you do well at league cups then you are basically in. Good luck!


#4

T8’d a League Cup today. Whiffed one of my 6 remaining energy to lose G3 of an extremely close series in cut. Kind of wish I would’ve done better, but all the games I played today were great games and I sold my prizes so I actually profited a little bit so I can’t complain. Guess I’ll continue to play in League Cups (at least the expanded ones lol).


#5

Nice job. You gonna be at the one in SD on Labor Day Monday? It’s standard.

Standings?


#6

planning on being there, but we’ll see what happens, may decide otherwise.

t4 was

  1. dillon carter w/ turbo dark
  2. brandon sauw w/ garb/espeon
  3. rish singh w/ drampa/garb
  4. ryan pena w/ toad/tina

#7

3-1 to 3-3 in two rounds of total dead draws lol. played one supporter across those games. pretty disappointing, but it is what it is.


#8

played in my first event since moving up to santa cruz today. had a couple rounds of unfortunate dead draws in the beginning, but was able to at least replace a T4 league challenge finish by winning out. also my friend’s roommate, who we taught how to play on monday, managed to top 8, so overall it was a good day.


#9

Hit up double Cups this weekend. Had some tough luck when it came to prizes yesterday and the usual stage 2 inconsistencies got to me, so I switched up to Buzzwole today and managed to snag a T8, while my friend who played the same 59/60 made T2. Got some more Cups coming up soon, hopefully can get some better finishes than just T8’s.


#10

managed to make top 2 at a league cup yesterday where my deck finally gave out on me in two games of dead draws in the finals. finally broke 100 points, and haven’t been to a regionals yet! got a late start to the grind but i’m hoping i’ll be able to squeak out an invite in the end.

(also 4/4 people in our car got top 8 yesterday, and 3/4 were in top 4. pretty happy about that)


#11

won a cup today in glendale! small turnout because there was 3 cups in LA on the same day (who knows why), but a win’s a win haha. buzzwole has done me very well, finishing Q2 with a 1st and a 2nd. now i have a good break before my first serious regionals of the season in dallas, so i have a while to figure out my expanded play. this has been an interesting season thus far


#12

Wow you got those finishes before I even attended a cup! Nice.

My turn


#13

Was really excited to use the deck I ran for this Regionals because it’s fun to play and it beat Zoroark, Toad, and Night March in testing fairly well, and I expected that to be the majority if the meta — then I only played against 2 Zoroark and 0 Toad/March in Dallas. Sick!

Regardless, I had great games all day and only one game of dead draws which I’m happy say. Had a great weekend and I’m definitely pumped for the next Regs.


#14

What was the other matchups u played if any?


#15

all of my matchups are edited into the original post!


#16

i didnt see that earlier


#17

I didn’t test and I played poorly, and my results showed it. Upsetting but I can only blame it on myself. Have some Cups as well as 2 more Regionals coming up, and will also hopefully be hitting up Nats. Here’s to trying to squeeze an invite out of the rest of the season.


#18

Good weekend here in Portland. Missed Day 2 by only a number of percentage points for resistance, but it is what it is. Played a Lucario list given to me by Olliver Barr the day before the event. Excited to play out the rest of the season, hope I can pull off an invite!


#19

Which variants of Lucario were big in day 2?


#20

Two players Day 2’d with the same 59 cards I played, and there were a couple Buzzwole/Lucario and Zoroark/Lucario as well. Jake Morgan’s Zoroark/Lycanroc/Lucario was the Lucario only in Top 8.
