Well, Seatttle was really depressing. I played bees with zoroark and wobbufetts (no herdier this time) and got sacked for the first time in over a year (maybe two years actually). In round one I played vs decidueyeplume and in game three I N’d him to one. He had 20 cards left in deck and 2 energies. If he drew an energy, he won. Guess what he drew?
Then I played against Mia violet in some round I forget. She was playing zoroark/zoroark break/drampa and I N’d her to three three times. Each time she had some way of obtaining a sycamore. Eventually, I N’d her to one. She had one prize left, drampa with three energy in the active, and I had a fresh vespiquen active and I hit her not for knockout. She had about 20 cards left in deck… and drew kukui for the win. So we tied.
Played against greninja the next round and drew pretty poorly game 1 and 3 but that wasn’t really any salt as greninja is a tough matchup. Game three I actually was up 4 prizes but couldn’t find a vespiquen so he killed all my Combees and won.
Round 8 I played against kian amini with drampa espeon garb. Game one neither of us had perfect draws, but I couldn’t hit a vespiquen or a zoroark so I had to attack with tapu lele. He divided and killed my two combees then I hit him for 100 and I think benched a zoroark. He psybeamed me and didn’t really have much else. If I flipped heads on confusion I am sure I would’ve won, but I didn’t so he rolled me. Game two was another one of those “I N’d him to two he drew like a god” moments.
I went 3-0 in a little lc for + 15 co, but because of my awful luck, I need to win two league cups (something that has cursed me not to go past top 8) and make top 64 or possibly better at NA internationals
So yea this was pretty much a salt post. Honestly, the worst part about this game is that there are plenty of good players out there yet only a handful of them consistently do well because with the rest of them they either dead draw all day or hit awful matchups. I consider myself “decent enough for an invite” right now but the luck factor is too strong in this game.
