I am done trying

Recommended Posts

Chasista

ok then. What do I need to trade to get the best cards/what are the best cards?

 

Really?

 

You said you checked for the best decks of tournaments and you missing pieces. And now you ask what are good cards? The ones contained on the Tournaments decks are good cards!

 

My last comment says what you need for trade are packs. And now you asking what you need for trading?

 

Did you care about reading any of the hundreds of messages we all left in your threads about how to make a good deck, tips, construction and more?

 

http://forums.pokemontcg.com/topic/65055-any-anti-meta-decks/ (2 pages)

http://forums.pokemontcg.com/topic/68091-how-do-you-make-a-consistent-deck/(2 pages)

http://forums.pokemontcg.com/topic/66254-help-improving-expanded-decks/(2 pages, and others too but I reviewed myself thoroughly almost every of the decks you posted)

 

You have long messages from a lot of very good players and nice people like Felidae, Sakura, Phyrrous, TheStalk and more. General, detailed, personalized, format focused, analysed step by step, card by card, recommendation after recommendation.

 

You started those threads and others September 2nd onwards. Time enough to get at least some basic points. And you keep asking silly questions? Did you care about reading anything? It doesn't look like.

 

And this being your best deck, after 2 months of playing, corroborates every word I'm saying..

 

Of course you re-shuffle. With 6 pokémon you have high chances. Add 4 N. If you go 1st, once your opponent have drawn 4 extra cards, leave it at 6 again. If you go second... ADD MORE POKÉMON.

 

Buzz mini it's 1 pack, and no need to be LoT. Sometimes you can get a couple of RA for a valued 1 pack.

 

Ether is a bad card, unless you would be using something like Magcargo, which is free in the game with Blazing Volcano deck. Use it.

 

Don't think a Strong energy can be important? 4 would be great. "Oh I only have one". GET MORE.

 

Is this expanded? Add an Ace Spec. There are some cheap ones.

 

Is this a fighting deck? What about Korrina?

 

Are they Ultra beasts? What about Ultra space, Beast ring, Beast ball?

 

Your attacker is a non GX/EX? Counter energy.

 

You don't know the cards, but we say you the cards and you just keep telling you don't have it.

 

That's how the game works, I said in my message in previous page. No excuses anymore. If you loose is because you want to loose.

This was literally the info I wanted. I just want to make sure I am going to be looking for deals that wont rip me off.  I also do not need your vague info. Saying "get more" and "just trade" does not give me the proper info to make the informed choices. I have no idea how many packs each card costs and saying "Cheap" or "expensive" mean nothing to me.

You have to admit we've been extremely patient with you... Chasista is absolutely right, it's been a couple of months already and you've received a ton of advice and help, but I think that you hardly appreciate it. Then there's this:

 

I also do not need your vague info. 

This is completely uncalled for. Chasista is a very nice member of our community too and was trying to help you as well. And this is how you answer him, just because he told you the facts as they are. He deserved a better response than that one.

 

I never give up on new players as long as they are trying to improve, but it seems like you're gonna be the first one. I am done trying to help you, to borrow your own words. Good luck, and hope that the rest of our community is more patient than I am.

 

Also, pardon the ADHD moment, but:

Of course you re-shuffle. With 6 pokémon you have high chances.

45.8% chance to mulligan to be exact xd Math compels me to include that statistic.

This is what I am seeing.

Them:your deck sucks, copy the top decks.

Me:I do not have those cards

Them:just trade for them idiot.

Me:how much are these cards

Them:you idiot you said you looked up the tops decks so you should know

Me:ok? not sure how that helps since they only give the price in USD

Them:you are a worthless cause, you just want to lose, why dont you know the info I know?

 

It is one thing to tell me what cards to get, it is another to tell me the price/packs needed to get it without getting ripped off and how to set up the deck with those cards. I can not just add 4 of every single card people told me to add since there is only a 60 card limit. I say you give my vague answers because it seems to me that you are giving me these answers under the assumption that I have the same knowledge as you, which I do not.

You should of seen that state of my collection earlier. I had none of the staple supporters and barely any of the decent/good cards. At least now I got those and finally started using cards that discard others from my hand/deck.

I just barely started about a month ago and I already have a sivally and suicune water toolbox deck built, and the reason why is because I used the advice that a friend of mine gave me. These people may not be your friends but they do want to help you get better at the game.

The first couple games the deck worked wonders but now I am having an issue setting up. Any tips?

That's probably partially because of the game's matchup system.  You win a couple games, so your 'ranking' moves up (we don't know what the exact system is, so it may not use ranking), and you play against stronger opponents.  So it's not just luck that slows it down later on, but the fact that you're doing better. :)

 

One piece of the puzzle you do seem to be missing, though, is how to handle evolutions.  Right now you have a lot of them, and many are just not very good attackers.  It's not just that they won't be doing much damage- it's this: every card in the deck that doesn't help you get card you need, gets in the way of cards you need.  It's a "dead draw," when instead you might have gotten a supporter, or an ultra ball, or a pokemon that's useful in the situation at hand.  So instead of having a lot of them, it's usually better to have just one or two, with more copies of each evo stage- plus a good number of non-evolving basics.

 

And don't beat up on yourself so much.  Deckbuilding is hard.  It takes some time to figure out strategy- but you're moving the right direction.
