#7009875 June 12th TCG banlist

Posted by Pendulum Black on 18 May 2017 - 06:50 PM

Rat is already semi'd. The card is fine. Barrage is still unfair, Drident arguably so, but not Rat.

 

Performapal was a best deck in the past, and it's recent wave of support made it actually fun to play again and coherent.

 

more jokers doesn't fix the loss of norden




#7009831 Encode Talker & Kleinant

Posted by Pendulum Black on 18 May 2017 - 04:05 PM

But it needs Cyberse monsters

That isn't actually hard for his example, just requires a lot of stupid ED concessions.

 

gofu for tokens

token + Gofu = Proxy dragon

Token 2 = Link Spider

NS skyblaster, make 3 tokens

Proxy + Spider = Encode

 

token + skyblaster = Proxy Dragon

token 2 = Link spider

proxy + Spider = Encode

 

and you have an extra token in EMZ encode's second linked zone

 

It's not good, but entirely possible.

 

my question is why wouldn't you just go for Firewall + Good card that mutual links (trigate prob, though it still requires some ED devotion to make) it for less ED devotion

#7009114 [CP17] Performapals

Posted by Pendulum Black on 16 May 2017 - 12:42 PM

DARK (almost equal quality to EARTH for its level)

Beast-Warrior

Lv. 4

Performapal

Odd-Eyes

Scale 6

 

its only competitor in slots is King Bear, which lacks the good level and name of the card for a slightly better scale.

 

Mirage Dragon is a Scale 8 Dragon, so it has niches this doesn't cover, namely in U Go Golem. It's also not a pal, which is the main source of searchability, so not really comparable. Honestly 1 of each of these guys is fine.

 

It won't win a game on its own, but it's just a good card to fill the niche King Bear filled, and 7 is barely better than 6, if at all, because I'm not being swayed by Splashmammoth anymore, though it IS a 6 for Synchron.

 

So it's scale only really cuts out Odd-Eyes Pendulum Dragon, meaning this is a spell for after the summon, if you require the piercing/can't assemble SKSD Starving Venom.

 

But giving the deck an extra Tenki target means you can actually run Tenki without feeling like shit. Rat, Whiptail if you run it, Black Sheep, and then Minotaur.

 

Rat NS is more valuable than joker a lot of times, so that's why Tenki is good ygos.

 

Just a valuable niche card. With decentish effects. Like Partnaga is for King Feral, and that card is worse.

#7004221 Winter's Bane

Came in expecting dumb Batman joke or wolfsbane

 

Left with a sensible chuckle




#7004215 Winter's Ban

Posted by Pendulum Black on 25 April 2017 - 04:15 PM

Phone, so going to be brief.

 

I wasn't baiting you. I was mad, wanted to make sure you saw it, but it was never bait. You can ask evilfusion. When I PMd him about you taking it what I felt was way too far, I explicitly asked him NOT to be a matter of you being a mod. I asked him to talk to you, person to person. I didn't tell him to scold or punish you. I just asked him to talk to you, man to man, because I would fail miserably.

 

I never got mad that Winter was to be punished. I was, in fact, lax with one of his warns and making sure it was fair. That was never what I handled.

 

I handled the fact that it was almost never legitimate. Pussy grabbing joke, legal precedent misinterpreted as promoting genocide, 

 

The thing about "grow a spine" is a skewed representation of the rule about minor name calling not being an issue, because that's the only time I said remotely similar. And that was just as much due to it happening back TO winter, despite it never being seen as wrong to do that way.

 

I tried to talk to Winter in private and give him heads up about things. His joke ban was also one he and I talked about, and he genuinely enjoyed it/that EVERYONE got a laugh. I think he's an alright guy to talk to 1-on-1.

 

But I never said he was blameless. I let the genocide warning go through, wrongly, because I was distracted with PR Mod stuff. I covered the mistake later on, because I was just as much to blame for it happening when I told dad "yeah, sure, whatever".

 

I wasn't defending him out of moral highground or political stance. I defended him because no one else, barring evilfusion, would. Because the team wanted to railroad him for jokes, misinterpretations, or far worse things that happened to him than he sent out. I don't think I'm a better person than you or him, but that's exactly it: we are all human. So I simply didn't want to see him railroaded because of vendettas or half-assed claims.

 

I didn't push for you to get demoted until a while after anything with Winter started. It was within the last month of modship. Early February. Even then, I backed off, until you once again overstepped, and I still didn't say demote you much at all later. Criticism is not a call for your head. Criticism is not hostility.

 

I have already said I believe this to be a case of "right thing, looks like wrong reasons". The case for wrong reasons is still strong, though I'm suitably convinced it was just a matter of poor timing. Very poor, mind, but all the same. I don't think any ill intent went into this ban, as of this time, but it could have been handled better.

 

So, no, I'm not upset Winter is banned. And this thread doesn't contain me defending him at all. Challenging the decision's handling, yes. Challenging the ban itself, no. Just the lack of transparency and seeming shadiness surrounding this ban. I'd already bowed out of this thread, even.

 

Hell, back to evilfusion, he knows I definitely have the ability to contest the ban based on this thread. But it's not about me wanting him here. It's about doing things the right way. I have misgivings here, but I don't believe there was any intent to be spiteful, at least not on the part of evilfusion, who did the actual ban. And he is the only one that matters at this time, if we are arguing the ban itself.


Addendum, I do intend to have a discussion about the ban with evilfusion, if he's willing to, but I think it's definitely for the better to not hash it out here.
