  2. I only have access to a free VPN at the moment but I tested your theory and I can in fact when i connect to a USA server, download the installer just fine. (it's just very slow cos free VPN is slow) It seems my ISP is blocking access somehow. Can that be? and if so how do I fix it?
  3. Hello @MindFloyd, I'm glad to hear the issue has been resolved on your end. Thank you for sharing the way you managed it to work.
  4. Today
  5. Hello @HolyTreacon, Thank you for updating this thread with this information on what you tried out and how it helped. You may also want to attempt the suggested fix located here. I would suggest giving that a try and seeing if that resolves the issue. I hope that helps, but if not, please keep us informed in this thread so that we can take a further look into this. Only non-official Pokemon URL's is against the forum rules. If you posted the official link that was automatically removed, I think it's worthwhile passing along to our development team for their review.
  6. uninstall the game, reboot your computer and activate your VPN when downloading the installer. worked for me
  7. Hi guys. I'm having the same problem. I have been playing on this pc for a while since i built it (Ryzen 3700X 8GB ram with a GTX1070 with win10 fully updated ******** it's been fine. Played yesterday, fine. Today spinning pokeball at 0% I cannot download the installer from ************************************************************ the page fails to load: Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site. We can’t connect to the server at *******************************. If that address is correct, here are three other things you can try: Try again later. Check your network connection. If you are connected but behind a firewall, check that Firefox has permission to access the Web. I had my gf download the installer from her PC and send it to me via dropbox. Uninstalling via windows doesn't work: No access to network location Property. USER_PROFILE I have literally tried everything Mod_GuruLot says in the above post. I can only uninstall by running the installer and choosing repair. That does work. I have 2 PCs here and a Tablet. All of them are broken, spinning at 0% So this might suggest an ISP problem? I don't know... The only thing I haven't tried is creating a new admin account. If that's the solution I'll update this post, although it would be quite a ridiculous solution wouldn't it. EDIT: i guess I can't share links. It's the link from the official pokemon tcgo page, windows downloader

    Hola. En cualquier entrenador que tengas 3 estrellas, ya está disponible la cuarta, sólo que debes ganar cada estrella con una baraja distinta. Puedes continuar los entrenadores y cuando tengas 500 monedas, comprar una baraja temática en la tienda del juego. Recomiendo Llama Implacable, Cañón Torrencial o Volcán en llamas. Las tres son bastante buenas y con cualquiera de ellas vas a ganar fácilmente la cuarta estrellas en todas las ligas. No olvides entrar a diario aunque no vayas a jugar, para seguir consiguiendo monedas y otros obsequios.

    I just need a few more tweaks...

    First sight, I'd have to reapet some of the previous comments. Too much 1-off, inconsistent thin evo lines, random powerful pokémon without an unique strategy, too much energy, too low important trainers... Not playing lately so don't know exactly what all your pokémon do but Audino would be cut for sure., The most important in decks are the trainers. You need more Rare candy and more Cherish ball probably. The consistency. If a stage 2 pokémon is 3 or 4 times, you'll find it easily without relying in tools, just drawing. If you have 3 different Stage 2, you rely in a trainer card to get the one you want in the moment you want it. And that is more space needed to add more trainer cards if different pokémon. In the case you say (2 ZNinja vs 1 and 1 DkUmbreon) just would simplify the strategy. With the 2 Basic it could even be better to have some variety, although if some of them is important enough, then should be not only one in the deck. But all together is told for the evo lines. The more different higher stages, the more middle stages and different Basic you need and that's a lot of different cards. And need to be found when you need it, so more different trainers and the space is tight. It simplifies the strategy and makes you can add cards that focus into improve (hit harder, heal more, easy switches) and not just into try to get the desired cards. Prior the rotation there was a Dark Incineroar+ZoroNinja deck. More simple. Not a tier 1 but yet problematic to beat. Or you could do a straight ZoroNinja+Naganadel. Both coul have some techs. But IMO is really in Expanded where darkness "glows", although that's a totally different story.
  10. i have the same problem. lol
  11. Hey, joining in on the same issue that I was stuck at 0% at the rolling Pokeball, uninstalled the game and now I can't reinstall and am getting the DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NXDOMAIN error while trying to download the new installer. I tried flushing my DNS with the instructions that were stated above, and my router was restarted multiple times today prior to this error happening. Is there possibly a problem with the main server going on at the moment?

    Can the greninja theme deck counter relentless flame

    Wave slasher was very cool to build the Greninja BREAK deck back in the XY era. Easily getting a lot of needed cards. But never was very good itself as a Theme deck, even when released. That said, the idea of Shadow stitching+hitting for weakness at least to the Chars, seems cool. What I doubt is the consistency and speed of Wave slasher can extinct the fire fast enough. Relentless flame Chars are awesome but these are not the only threat of the deck, while Wave slasher will heavily rely on Greninja to win not being the 9 grass pokémon a help for anything in that case. We should analyse if on the other side, the 9 grass pokémon would help against Torrential cannon. Would be so funny to have an XY deck beating both "best" theme decks... if only would be more powerful. But the idea at least worth some games to discover how it works 😆 Let us know!

    Can't Beat Zach

    Yeah I had trouble with Zach to, namely because of the deck the game makes you play with. I'm like Meowths who do 30 damage or something, I have no great trainers to help me get more resources. Got my **** kicked a few times and never went back to it. I just don't know if it's even worth it or if there are any quality rewards to it. However I am playing at a relatively good level after learning the game some, I might go back and try again, yet needing to win to get better cards for the deck you have to use against them is frustrating. It's like a concept of, you have to use a bad deck to beat an average deck so you can get better quality cards to beat them again, of which would be easier if you had those cards now. Not considering of course the randomness of just having a bad draw could ruin you as well.
  23. I put in a support ticket. Got an auto email back from Pokemon stating they have received it. I restarted my pc again and instead of the Pokeball spinning, I got could not connect to the server, the button choice said Exit, I hit that and it just closed the game. Hopefully we hear something soon.

    Quitting Matches

    I'm not sure why you felt ineligible, but thank you for explaining. Also, sorry for the length, especially as I may be unable to respond for a few days due to family issues. Using the last of my down time for this comment, I think. I am glad you brought up your definition of rage-quitting because it is your definition, not mine. Nor does it match the common definition of the term. I did try to avoid constantly labeling the act as "rage-quitting", since that obviously colors things, but pointing out that the act at least had at one time been seen in a negative light was relevant to the discussion. Concession in a normal game requires your opponent accept your concession. It is a simple but significant difference. It doesn't matter whether or not you could turn things around, which is hard to actually know for certain, especially in the heat of the moment. Except this situation is very, very rare. You need to know your opponent's deck (both total contents and current remaining cards), hand, discard pile, and Prizes. Only one of these things is public knowledge in Pokémon. None of the cards involved can have serious divergent outcomes based on variables like coin flips, or else all results have to still end with you losing. You have to be certain your opponent can make no misplays. Even if you know all these things, however, you're missing the point: the general understanding of both people agreeing to play a game is that they will play that game to completion, win or lose. You both agreed to play the game, so you both ought to agree to end the game. Which is what happens when one player achieves a win condition or when a player actually asks "Do you mind if I concede?". Yeah, you can't ask that anymore, but that's part of the problem. I mean, I do not usually understand an opponent's concession as translating to "Well played...". That is actually what is meant by seeing the game through to the end! XD It may just be a matter of totally different standards, but abruptly quitting is meant as an insult in our circles. If you're in a winning position it means "I'm bored and your not worth my time." If you're losing it is "Yeah, I agreed to finish the game but you're not worth it." I mean, in polite terms. There are much simpler but not Forum-friendly ways to say it. >.> That first bit is one aspect of rage quitting, yes. You see it as a stark contrast. Let us look at that last bit. Someone intentionally eating up the clock is indeed seen as rude however, there are two other aspects of this to consider. The first is if you can actually win through the clock. It is part of the game, so some believe that is indeed fair; winning within the time limit is part of the rules. There is another side of it as well. Some folks consider it a sign of respect when their opponent's give it their all. I don't feel that way but I do understand it. In real life, as well as unofficial means of online play, you can usually reveal your hand, Prizes, etc. to your opponent when you lose, whether to say "See how close this was?" or "Wow, you had me totally beat!". This is not an option for the PTCGO, so the closest equivalent is playing out your hand. In a sense, it is seen as the "right" of the losing player. The winning player doing that, however, is seen as "showboating". Either way, it was seen as fine so long as your opponent agreed... sadly, no longer an option. Oh, and again, this is ignoring the potential impact of Daily Challenges. Tournament play can affect whether or not those are examples of "Rage-quitting", but ignoring that then yeah, I would consider those examples of it. However, I would also consider it rage quitting even if you were only down by one point, or if you only lost the first game by a single Prize, etc. Just taking advantage of your example to stress the point, since I wanted to make sure you know I read this bit. Again, we just disagree. When the only thing you can do to be rude is to be less polite, even being less polite can be seen as rude. You agreed to see a game to its conclusion, you probably don't know for sure at this point you're going to lose or you do know but seeing it through requires just waiting another minute... when all you can do is deny this to your opponent, it isn't likely to be seen as a "Well played..." but an attempted insult. I've alluded to other games before, but this is where we have to be very aware of how chess isn't a TCG. In chess, even in casual play, you can get to a point where even a draw is impossible without gross human error. In Pokémon, you can usually only assume such is the case, because there are elements of luck not present in chess (blind card draws, coin flips, etc.) and the nature of one turn equals one move. Which is why chess has special rules dedicated to these circumstances! When we look at tournament player versus league play, the difference becomes even more pronounced. As I said, playing on the Rewards Ladder is not like playing in a tournament, it is like playing at a Pokémon League. Put them both together, and it would be akin to someone at the chess club almost always conceding when they lose their queen, even if they still have every other piece from their backfield, just because their opponent still has their queen and might be able to check (not put them into checkmate) the next turn. People aren't just here to accumulate wins in the chess club, they're also here to play. I understand you don't quite see it at that, and we could debate exactly what board setup equates to what between the two games. There isn't really a good direct comparison, which is my main point; you can see what pieces each player has in play and where they are at on the board in chess. Both players can see; that is rarely the case for Pokémon. Thanks for mentioning there might be grammar issues. I'll try to only bring them up if relevant and beg the same quarter. Primal Clash officially released February of 2015, so yeah, I had longer than I thought without Daily Challenges. XP Though I that does mean my memory is suspect, as I didn't remember it taking that long. XP Thank you for having this discussion. I don't need us to necessarily agree on conclusions so long as we can agree on facts, or at least agree to disagree on them while being open to further discussion.

    Hi gays, I have one problem, because I started playing and the game doesn't load up, it still shows 0%. I tried to uninstall and not only but it did nothing. I am asking for help in this matter. It is happening from today and I do not know what to do.

    Mr mime Breakthrough ability bug

    Bench Barrier Prevent all damage done to your Benched Pokemon by attacks. Sky-Scorching Light GX You can use this attack only if the total of both players remaining Prize cards is 6 or less. Put 6 damage counters on each of your opponents Pokemon. (You cant use more than 1 GX attack in a game.) Sky scorching light places damage counters. It does not deal damage. Bench barrier would not do anything against it. To stop Sky-Scorching Light GX, you'd need something like Machoke's Daunting Pose Daunting Pose Prevent all damage done to your Benched Pokemon by your opponent's attacks. Your opponents attacks and Abilities can't put damage counters on your Benched Pokemon. There is no bug here.

    Unplayable for returning players

    @Fatcatz2007 Sorry for the length, but you kind of answered your own question in your previous post, so I'm trying to stress the things we've already discussed but which aren't connecting in your mind. Wally was not banned to prevent access to attacks from Evolutions T1, because Wally was banned long after the rule prohibiting T1 attacks went into effect. Wally was banned because Evolutions are allowed certain effects in the form of Abilities, effects that cause game balance issues if they can hit the field right away. The main example is Trevenant (XY 55/146). Its Ability is If Wally is legal, then Player 1 can reliably prevent Player 2 from ever having a turn with Item cards. Why not ban Trevenant? It is an option but banning Trevenant does nothing about other potentially problematic plays, including cards released in the future. Because Wally isn't in the Standard Format, keeping it legal for the Expanded Format while avoiding future problems would mean all future Evolutions required preemptive "nerfing". Which would likely make them worse in Standard just for the sake of Expanded. Those that can attack to Evolve cannot do so T1, because you aren't allowed to attack T1. Yes, it can be done T2 (the first turn of the player going second) but think of what that means for the Trevenant situation. Player 1 cannot use the "Ascension" attack on Phantump (XY - BREAKpoint 64/122) to Evolve into Trevenant at the end of T1, so Player 2 always gets at least one turn of Item usage. Player 2 can have their Phantump attack using Ascension to Evolve at the end of T2, but Player 1 already had a turn with access to Items. In both cases, either player will have at least one turn where they can use Item cards! There is also the difference of "general use" versus "specific". Wally won't let you fetch Evolutions for Pokémon-EX, but can otherwise work with anything! New Pokémon-EX are not even being made, so every new Evolution would have to be pre-nerfed to balance it for use with Wally... or Wally needs to be banned. What about Evolving attacks? Besides not being an option T1, they also only work with certain Pokémon. The designers only need to worry about an Evolution shortcut lining up with a specific Evolutionary line. It is even better for them when it the final Stage of Evolution has the acceleration method built in. Manectric (SM - Celestial Storm 52/168; SM - Black Star Promos SM130) doesn't Evolve, so it just has to be balanced against itself. And it is. In fact, it isn't even considered a particularly good card, even for [L] decks. ^^' If something that breaks the usual rules for Evolution receives a problem Evolved form later on, though, it likely will be banned. Flabébé (SM - Forbidden Light 83/131) has the Ability "Evolutionary Advantage" which states it can Evolve on a player's first turn if that player goes second... in other words, it can Evolve T2. We're about to receive a Floette with an Ability that discards from your opponent's hand when you Evolve into it, and it already caused serious issues in a Japanese deck, so November 15th that Flabebe is going to be banned from Expanded. Which is interesting because normally they are only worried about such things on T1. Probably because you're not looking at it historically. Look at when a card was banned, and what was and was not legal at the time. Player 1 can strip Player 2 of their entire hand Turn 1 without using Lt. Surge's Strategy. The easiest trick was to use Red Card to force your opponent's hand down to two cards. Then use Jessie & James, discarding Weezing (Hidden Fates 29/68) for your own required discards... which triggers Weezing's Ability that forces your opponent to discard another card. If both of the cards you discard are Weezing, then Jessie & James ultimately forces your opponent to discard four cards, their entire hand at this point. There were other effects that could be used instead of Red Card or Weezing, so Jessie & James is what went. After this, someone created a deck using Lt. Surge's Strategy that could still obliterate Player 2's hand on T1. This wasn't the only issue caused by Lt. Surge's Strategy, and it was clearly going to be a risk for all future Supporters, so they decided to ban it. Some cards may eventually be safe to remove from the list, but those made safe because of the new T1 Supporter rules will probably need to wait until after those rules have been in effect for a few months. Now is obviously too soon, but even the day the new T1 Supporter rule goes into effect is far too soon; imagine them returning Wally to legality only to find out some other new card or combo meant it had to be banned again right away! It also would distract them from dealing with any new problem combos. Hope that clears things up. Again, sorry about the length!
