What did you like this week?

October 17, 2008

Whats got you excited? will be a new installment for this preview season of MEV. In it, I will highlight cards which I think will be on my top list, and explain why it is that I like them so.

We’re into week 2 of previews for this new set, and I’m sure most of the VS world will agree with me when I say, WOW.

Some intense cards have popped up this week, but I think the thing on everyone’s mind is the new mechanic that we were introduced to; Shift. The ability to pay for future recruits, and the ability to completely maximize, (and in many instances, cheat more) one’s resource points seem to be the central theme to the Exiles, who, fromĀ  what we have seen so far these last 2 weeks, seem to be one of the teams to beat once this set sees release. Being able to fully use your resource points is one of the key factors to winning games, and the fact that this team does it so easily will make them the focus of many power decks, and will probably be one of the first Tier 1 teams to come from this set.

Moving on;

We saw some really cool cards this week that showed us that Shift and the Exiles will be fun and competitive to play with. We saw 2 new legends, and probably one of the most powerful Legend cards out there, but looking past all that, we also got to see a card that has me totally excited, and hoping that I pull a four of.

Casual vs. Competitive (does it really exist? does it even matter anymore?)

October 17, 2008

I know its way late, and probably not something on the mind of most players nowadays, but what do you think of said topic?

Here in my neck of the woods, its something that pops up every once in a while. You see, the majority of guys that I play with, and those that most often frequent my HL are very much a casual player base. We don’t own the moeny rares, we haven’t had the experience of playing VS (or any other TCG for that matter) in an enviorment where being competitive actually paid off.

(I dont know who this guys is, just popped up after google image search, seemed good enough)
