#7042801 [EXFO] False Bomb

Posted by vla1ne on 13 October 2017 - 08:49 PM

something something yang xings. something something burning abyss. something something every deck that might want this has better (often searchable) ways to do it other than a slow af trap.

 

the card's got interesting applications, but there's more than enough ways to destroy your own card as is, and many of those ways can hit your opponent as well, so a trap like this doesn't exactly make waves. for artifacts, double cyclone/Twin twisters/heavy storm duster/ect are leagues better, in monster based decks, true kings are the flavor of the week, and anywhere else between, you could honestly make more use of raigeki break, needle ceiling, or just about anything else in place of this. there's just no reason to waste space for such a painfully specific card, when other, more versatile cards already exist and do the same thing faster/with better payoff

On the topic of evilfraud's resignation; you are a fraud. I distinctly remember you saying that the convenience of being a mod and being able to sort things out for yourself was the reason you would never step down regardless of your interest in the site or whatever, t was on a status I don't know how long ago and it doesn't really matter; what's important is YOU LIED TO US and that's not ok.

 

More disappointing still is the fact that your resignation was only this pathetic thread, entirely devoid of the trademark evilfusion mischief. There was a time when you were known as evilfunion, for all the fun your presence did entail, and yet now your final act is to simply say you're sick of this forum. With all your power you could have done something truly historic; ban all the mods, promote me to super, delete CC, even just change the logo to evilfusioncardmaker, ANYTHING BUT NOTHING. 

 

As a result this is now how I will remember you, evilfraud. Not as the great dictator you once were, the steadfast ruler who once blessed me with a dowry of 5 million points for young Rewas' hand in marriage, but instead as this whimpering CUCK MOD who resigned barely a shadow of the great man he once was, no longer feared or revered but rather mocked behind his back, a subject of ridicule and scorn for all who were once subservient to his will.

 

Fare thee well, coward.

 

...It's okay to cry...

damn, well, you'll be missed as a moderator, but i hope you can regain your interest in both the card game, and this site someday. a short break might help you with the former, and possibly the latter as well. just take some time off to just let things bounce around in your head. either way, see you around.

as much as i'd like to, i think i'll sit this out. last year's mistake is still a bit to fresh in my head, and i doubt it would assist my performance at all.

 

looking forward to the monster duels though.

kind of upset that the ancient gear monster doesn't have higher ATK, but it's within reason, and the effect is pretty nice either way.

 

the Crystal beast player at our local library is going to fangirl so f***ing hard over that new rainbow dragon. and if i'm not mistaken, can't you tribute a malefic rainbow dragon for it? making the process insanely easy? i somewhat remember something about malefic rainbow not having the same kanji as rainbow dragon and rainbow dark, but i'm not sure. and if i'm reading correctly, wouldn't it be impossible to use the 2nd effect if you summoned it using the alternate method? since it says :"Must be Special Summoned by Fusion Summon or the following method," instead of "Must be special Summoned by  Fusion Summon, or the following method: by Tributing a Level 10 “Ultimate Crystal God” monster you control (You do not use “Polymerization”. this method is also treated as a Fusion Summon)" slightly wrong wording on my part, but  i'm tired, hopefully my meaning gets across.




#7039277 On the topic of taking the knee (in the NFL or elsewhere)

Posted by vla1ne on 25 September 2017 - 11:50 PM

I would know n***a cuz I been there.  I took two niggas off the street and got em clean and helped em find jobs.  We been friends for three years now and both those niggas just got into college.  So don't come at me with that self righteous bullshit like you the only one who suffered.  You pretentious as f***.  

 

And my people regularly go to council meetings in the city.  And just cuz you pretend to have love for them people don't mean you do.  Saying something and something being implied is the same thing.  When you start raggin on us, you speaking that evil onto my people.  And you spittin facts, you right.  But I have yet to f***in hear you talk about whatchu doing for the community you got so much malice for.  For all the praise you pretend to give us, you love to look down on us.  What have you actually f***in done since you so in touch with our struggle?

 

Have you gone to any of the meetings?  Have you participated in city council and made your voice heard? Have you been apart of any big brother programs to teach these young niggas how to stay off the street?  Have you done anything?  I'm not saying you haven't.  I'm straight up asking you.  What have you done?

 

Because I've done it all.  From feeding the homeless, to big brother programs, cleaning up my own neighborhood, all of it.  And I'm still in class and working too.  So what have you contributed?

again, i've already given ample example of blacks getting far in life, and you have continuously seen my applause of blacks who make it in the world, from the day i joined this forum to today. your initial statement was a denial of the issue i presented, i countered said statement with experience, and then pointed out that you either misinterpreted, or flat out missed, the rest of my words, nothing about that is pretentious.

 

to clear this misunderstanding up as quickly as possible: when did i say i have love for blacks as a whole? i have love for black people on a case by case, i have no love for the group as a whole (before any variant of this shot can be made, i have no love for any race as a whole). you will probably get mad at me for this, and i honestly don't know if i care. i'm not trying to make myself a savior, i'm the guy who saw all the s*** in the hood, said f*** that, and left it on my own (currently, i still live among blacks, in a peaceful neighborhood, where i have yet to see the bullshit that goes down in the hood). but besides that, please don't act as if it's spreading evil when i point out flaws i've seen that need fixing. no matter my own position, the issues remain. unlesss you can tell me the issues don't exist, then my points remain standing. but because i do have a few merits in the area, i may as well use them: i talk to younger, and even older black people, at work, outside work, and elsewhere, trying to spread the idea that people need to prevent their families from falling into the traps. wherever i encounter discussions where race is used as a prominent excuse. i involve myself with friends and family, and even friends of family, so that they don't ever feel the need to go down the wrong paths, or to blame other people. that's what i do, and that's all i need to do, i support my family, and my friends, anything else is overtime work for me.

 

I never go to meetings, because i don't have time, i do keep up with my city events, and vote accordingly, i am a big brother to my old library, in the s*** neighborhood, using yugioh to bring younger kids in the neighborhood into a fold that isn't centered on acting hood. look up the mundy branch library in syracuse if you want details on that. we help the kids in the neighborhood build decks, provide snacks, give them a place to relax, and all manner of other things. it's not directly about keeping kids out of the hood troubles, but that's one of the end results, and it's something that most of the kids involved, even those who grow out of the game, keep with them.

 

i contribute to family and friends, my family and friends, i will ensure, do not succumb to the problems that the hood brings, and those in my fold, i do not abandon. though in the long term, i do have plans to build homes for homeless men in cities like syracuse, to help them get back on their feet. not like the rescue mission, but something more personal, when i have the money.

 

but we've kind of gotten off track.




#7039270 [AGM] Crystal-Eyes archetype (Custom Archetype)

Posted by vla1ne on 25 September 2017 - 11:04 PM

Ruination dragon
pendulum eff  way too good, put simply, skipping battle phase isn't enough for something that can so easily toolbox, especially outside of a vacuum, where so man decks could potentially mesh with this in unexpected, and insane ways. in a deck where so many cards may actually become more useful in the grave than the hand, i'm rather wary of the effect being worthy of list attention. though it is hard opt, and 
monster eff, not sure if the wording is correct on this, fairly sure it would be: When this card is destroyed, you can Special Summon a monster with the same name as the returned monster from your deck. but in either case, give that effect a hart OPT, it's already powerful enough, to be able to use it more than once in a turn (especially considering links can lead to some ignorant AF recycle tricks, and dragons in general have simply stupid levels of support)
overall, just nerf it a bit as mentioned, and the card would be fine enough.
 
Recreation dragon
pendulum eff well, the ability to activate the monster you add as a scale is nice, but is it needed? if it was a quick effect, i could see the value, but as is, there's no real reason to add such an effect is there?
monster eff again, the wording is kind of weird, bu before that, since you're shuffling the monster into your deck, is there even a need to make it unusable at a later point in time? you could exclude that part and it'd still be pretty good right?
overall, far more balanced than the first, and in fact needs a buff, instead of a nerf, to the monster effect to be fine.
 
Revival dragon: 
pendulum eff 2 things, 1) hard OPT, 2) if anything needed a second restriction, it would be this effect, it gives you two free monsters, not using the pendulum summon (at least it isn't, the way it's currently worded), 
monster eff if this was summoned via the pendulum effect, you would have 3 monsters, for no cost, and god forbid you summon the 2 copies not in the pendulum scale, you could drop a total of 4 monsters to the field, for damn near free, and do whatever you wished with them. give it a hard OPT here as well, and, i'm starting to think you'd do well to just give every monster in the deck a xenophobic clause ala cardians, to prevent too many unexpected interactions outside of the current vacuum they're in.
overall, the revival abilities are just too strong, they need some form of restriction placed on them, and said restriction should probably bean opt and a xenophobic clause. but i can see the potential, and i think they'd do some fun things when completed.
the rest, for another time.

well, considering the necro, and the near revival of he who must not be named, i suppose this would be as good a time as any to try reviving the section, so let's start simple, as it says in the title, one the topic of taking the knee, A captain falcon tribute i'd like to discuss with you all, what side do you find yourselves on, and why? do you agree with this trend of kneeling instead of standing for the national anthem, that's currently sweeping the NFL?

 

the fire was sparked further with trumps public disapproval of the action, and has, apparently only continued to gather steam.

 

but as usual, i'll start with my own opinions if you care to read them

Posted by vla1ne on 24 September 2017 - 11:47 PM

well... i've really got nothing to say to this outside of What in the literal hell was konami's R&D section smoking when they made this? the only saving grace is that the monsters don't have to be on the field, but even then, you have to have summoned both of said monsters before using them, which is hard enough. but i guess you could possibly use phantom of chaos, and some form of fusion substitute + hangar to get out VWXYZ, and then tribute it for armed dragon level 5, and then use level up to summon level 7? just spitballing here.
 
but hot damn. screw table 1, table 500 is gonna have the most hype duels ever. i will drop this at least once in a duel.

#7021256 This impacts all of us. Let's act like it.

Posted by vla1ne on 08 July 2017 - 05:59 PM

On the contrary, choosing to protest instead of choosing not to would surely lead to different outcomes. Those differences in outcome could be the tipping point that determines this bill being overturned, they could contribute just enough momentum to a sea of outrage, they could be trivial, and they could backfire. We've seen protests backfire, certainly of late. Protest culture has been sweeping in the year of 2017, yet with each revelation that the latest noble protest was staged by vast corporate entities with think tanks and cash, the air around subsequent protests grows thicker with disillusionment. You needn't look any further than here to see how easily a protester can preach so zealously to the converted as to inspire apostasy. "That's no reason not to fight" is, to me, a completely f***ing backwards sentiment. We don't need reasons not to fight, we need reasons to fight. I'm sure you have as valid reasons as anyone for opposing this bill, but opposing this bill isn't much of a stand to take when damn near everyone is opposing this bill to the extent where not opposing it strongly enough is vilified, as if I'm under some moral imperative to fight alongside you with all my might.


 from where i'm looking at things, yes, there are definitely different outcomes that can be reached from both avenues, but the avenue of protest, to me holds what i consider to be the most valid possibility. yes, we have seen protests backfire, but it does not invalidate every protest, to have a few (or even many) of them collapse. i have no issue with protest culture, it is a right that all deserve, and is, in general, a healthy expression. now, when mixed with outrage culture, and a mindset that desires everything be given unconditionally, it becomes unhealthy, but that is not what this is, at the very least, not for me. i am protesting, because a service, that i pay hard earned money to maintain, is under threat of being gimped, in both quality, and overall freedom. 
 
no matter who stages said protest, those behind the cause, are often, if not always genuine, you can oppose them, but it is not an invalidation of a protest, simply because the funds come from a larger source of wealth. looking at the reason behind each and every protest, is what makes protest reasonable, and unreasonable to me. the reasoning behind this one being that paying more for less, for no clearly defined reason, does not sit well, and no suitable reason (or any reason at all) has been put out there to defend such a change.
 
my reason to protest/fight(nonviolently of course), is that the money i pay does not come without expectations of quality, letting the service providers know as much, instead of being lead around by the nose, is my reason. if they refuse to provide services, that is their choice, and my money shall eventually flow elsewhere, same for the politicians, my votes will go to those who understand that their own wallet is not the object of importance when running for an office.
 

 

Anything that's easier to fight for than not to isn't a worthwhile cause, it's an insufferable bandwagon. To me, my right to abstain from movements like this is infinitely more important than something so trivial as overturning this bill, and so that's where I'm focusing my energies.


you are somewhat right that opposing this bill is the strongest stance, but i do not wish to vilify you, only persuade you to join this side of the discussion. and for a strong example of underestimating your opponent, even one that may have been easy to fight, look at the recent elections. this is that kind of bill, sure, a lot of people are against it, definitely more than those who are for it, but if everybody has this same thought, then what happens then? the bystander effect is what. to be fair, no, that may not happen in this case, but why take such a risk? especially on something that could disrupt modern life as much as this can? yes, eventually another company may rise and provide the services better, effectively destroying the old model of censored service for good, but until then, it would be a terrible inconvenience, and an even worse drain upon my wallet if i wished to maintain the current services that i possess. i cannot financially afford more bills than i have right now, i have an interview in two days for an insanely good job, but even then, why would i want to spent twice as much on the same sevices? so why would i sit by and hope for the best when even the most basic of the worst results could easily cause me no end to my financial troubles
 
 
 

Perhaps, but consider that in protesting this bill you're protesting a protest of a protest. Are you really preventing disease, or are you contributing to it?

 i am protesting this bill, it's that simple. i do not support this bill, i am letting the companies, and the politicians, know as much, and from where i stand, the more who make this known, the stronger the sentiment will resonate, especially with politicians. 

 

I don't need your permission to think as I do.


indeed you don't, and i would not vilify you for thinking as you do (if such a meaning came across to you, that was not my intention) but there is no harm in attempting to persuade you to see things my way, or vice versa, right?




#7021142 This impacts all of us. Let's act like it.

Posted by vla1ne on 07 July 2017 - 11:25 PM

The companies don't care. Not like people have anywhere else to turn.

The politicians, on the other hand, want to get reelected.

and therin lies the main issue. how to get the people to turn away. polaris is right when he said people can live without the internet, but it seems more and more people have forgotten this fact. if they could remove themselves, if only for a few months in protest, that would be more than enough to get the point across. a few months of wireless hardship for a more free internet, to me wouldn't be too bad of a tradeoff. 

 

politicians, are another snake entirely, but indeed, should they vote this in, all it would take, is a (at least semi-competent) politician who didn't, to have them effectively removed. 




#7021132 This impacts all of us. Let's act like it.

Posted by vla1ne on 07 July 2017 - 10:54 PM

Polaris, might i ask why you think protesting this wouldn't change anything? It's true that protesting might not do anything, but at the very least, you can let the companies know that the consumer does not want it, and possibly alert them to the immediate loss in in trust and gradual loss of profits should they continue down such a foolish road. as you said, another ISP could potentially come into the mix and rise quickly by opposing this, but by then, the damage would have been done. so i guess my question really, is why would you take the risk waiting for that pound of cure, when an ounce of prevention lies directly in front of you?

 

To me, it seems as if this is preventing the loss instead of waiting till it breaks and hoping something can be done after. This bill is 100% intended to hobble the current freedom that the internet possesses. So it's all well and good to say that it can be fixed later, or that the internet's not free already, but why would you permit even more chains when you can at least try to keep it as free as possible? I'm not a fan of the defeatist mindset, nor can i say that hoping for somebody else to fix the problem (all the while having a means to at least attempt a counter) is something to either respect or even permit as default thinking in any situation.

 

 

 

So far this seems to be generating discussion over the extent to which we value freedoms and services we largely take for granted in spite of not having had access to them as a species until extremely recently. The internet isn't something previous generations depended on, and yet the prospect of mere restrictions on the convenience of our use of the internet seems to rouse our warlike passions. Interesting, to say the least.   

 

 

correct. we haven't had it all that long, but in the current age, as humanity advances, the internet, has indeed become integral to how we live. but let me make something clear before continuing, because it seems to have not registered with you just yet; the internet is not just a mere convenience. it is a service that we pay for, and we, as consumers, expect not to be cheated out of what we pay for. would you accept a broom or a vacuum at full price, that works only half as well as it should, and indeed once would have, on that same reasoning? simply because the company that provides the product choses to apply even more arbitrary restrictions for the sake of their own greed? is the current system prefect? no, but that is no excuse to let it slink further into the shithole called greed. we are upset, because the money we work to earn, is not given lightly, and for a company to blatantly attempt to swindle us for mere greed is an absolutely s*** deal. the money i work for is damn hard earned, and by signing this protest, i am making that known. i will gladly go without internet, and refuse to grant another dime to these crows should such a terrible business decision be allowed to stand. we are paying them, for a service, and while new innovations of that service are not necessary, dragging that service backwards, in pursuit of greed based profit, is absolutely unacceptable.
