So how many of you are new?

Recommended Posts

I've never paid attention to the little code cards in my pack until I read one of the cards one day and only then found out they had an online game, that leads me to believe it used to be more popular than it is now. So, how many of you are new players? I assume most of you have played a bit longer or have decided to revisit the game

The codes are how TPCi makes money in this game. TPCi won’t make a free game that is as big as PTCGO that doesn’t make money whatsoever. Maybe they do it for advertising, but I think the former.

A lot of people on here have been playing for a while. I’ve been playing for over 3 years now, but I bet many other people on here have been playing longer than me.

I realize this post is a "conversation starter," but I don't follow the logic.  Because you never noticed Code Cards (although obvious), or discovered there was an online game, you've concluded the game had to be more popular before?

 

The Pokemon TCG, in the real world, has been around for over 20 years now.  Anyone still in school (K-12) wasn't even born then.  Most players I've known go hardcore for a couple years, and quit, maybe for another game, but usually for real life issues.  Many have stuck around for years on end, taking breaks on occasion.  The TCG Online has been around for about 7 years now, I would imagine with its owns highs and lows.  I'm still a noob, but everyone's experience, whether Online or off is probably as unique as they are.

Im new to the game and really I was looking for other new players, I know its been around for many years and many years before I was born but looking into it more I didn't see it getting and recent publicity.

Edit:and why am I getting downvoted for this? xD

I've only been playing since September of last year.  I never really bothered to download the TCGO until then, but I'm still very glad that I did!  (I started to collect the card since HS Undaunted... Oof.)

I'm not new, but I feel like "introducing" myself to those who are. ;) I've been playing via the PTCGO for about five years now, though if you want to get technical, that was when I returned to it, as I could almost never get the original PTCGO to work on my old computer.  If we include the physical cards, I go all the way back to the beginning, at least in North America (approximately January of 1999).  There are gaps in my time with the game, sometimes because I planned on quitting and other times just because "real life" got in the way.  I actually had quit back in 2014, but a newer computer and the redesign of the PTCGO meant I could finally reliably access it.

I'm not that new. I joined TCG online last year. 

But I have been a Pokemon fan for more than 20 years.
