People can do whatever they like with their decks. As I have said on every post I made in this thread... whatever works for you is fine.
Not everyone will always agree with you, or share your opinion. Life is tough like that. I suspect the most difficult thing of all of it for you to grasp, is that there isn't a right or wrong way of doing it.
Insulting anyone who sees things differently from you is actually immature though.
I have great respect for Rogue deck builders, and over the years have met a few really good ones. But constructively playing "different" decks (or playing anti-meta) in order to win events is not the tone you've been using. It's hasn't been helpful either.
Besides the "Real Pokemon Trainers love their Pokemon." comment, which suggests superiority, you've made many disparaging remarks. That's what provoked my response. Throwing out barbs, and then clarifying with, "it's okay to be different" is still an insult.
See what I mean, in just a couple of your posts?
I see so many ugly decks... no offence, they are all Pokemon... but, ugh.
A lot of 'popular' cards I would never use in my deck.
Winning is everything, for some; and cute Pokemon don't figure in that, except by chance.
...built with zero imagination
...they can't see alternatives; winning is still everything
Elitist quibblers! Get 'em everywhere, sadly.
Elitist meta gamers are, by definition, the minority.
And now, you would like to say you're being inclusive?
If you want to be cutesy, that's fine with me. Some of us need the easy wins. But to chatter about the rest of us playing with ugly cards, lacking imagination, being obsessed with winning, or being elitist is unacceptable.
PTCGO is an end to a means for many. And for some, just practice for real world events. But please, could you drop the whole "Gotta Love Your Pokémon Cards" shtick? Would anyone recommend the next time we fly halfway across the country, paying hotel and registration fees for a Regionals, that we "think cute, or go home?"
