Some back story, I came into the game with 0 knowledge about a year ago, I've never looked anything up or ever used anyone else as a reference for my deck (except for my discovery of Ace Spec, which I saw in a match and knew I needed hahaha). Now I can win a fair amount of games with my progressively developing deck. The point being, it's MINE. My creation. It's no where near perfect, in fact some times dudes (and luck) just slam dunk me. But I enjoy it, because I know this deck came from me and me alone and rarely do I see similar online.
So anyway, whenever i'm playing online I see the same 5-6 decks come around in cycles. Night march, infinite force, garchomp, darkrai.. ect.
Doesn't the community get sick of mimicking each others decks? What's the fun in winning if your using the same cookie cutter deck as so many other people??
I know when I play online, the most fun I have is when I vs a deck that I can just tell has been handmade by someone for them specifically. It feels so fresh with all these cards being played that no one else uses, yet it still works.
It honestly feels like i'm vs'ing bots whenever I come across one of the 5-6 standard decks people are using. I really don't even think they're that great, my deck holds up great against them.
But yeah, like I said i'm generally new so my perspective may be different to yours but what is everyone's thoughts on this? Do you have your own personalized deck, or do you google best templates or something?
Is it really that great winning 10+ straight with a deck that was laid out for you? Because I know for me it's super satisfying when my underdog deck gets those big win streaks on the 'best' decks i so often come across -___- z Z
I guess what i'm just trying to say is wouldn't the game just be so much greater if more people were more original? Bring the fun back, anyone can win with some of the decks I see but, having your own ground up creation win... that's why I play.
