Hey U All Jus Got Lucky And Didnt Have To Face Team Trinity. We B Lookin' 4 U Next Time. And Thats A Callange.Not luck, mostly skill and knowing when to use the cards the right way. Team Trinity?? I'm confused? Are you guys new or something. Never heard of you guys, and if this is a such team, please name your members and we can have a team battle depending on how many people you guys have.

Umm.. ya no offense to your team or any individual, but Saul lucksacked a lot.
02-07-2006, 04:56 PM
Well you guys have alot of x-4 and x-3 records, which arent really nice looking on a creds page, but we all had to start out somewhere, right?
This really is a sight for sore eyes, usually the only team you see winning up there is team pie, which are all rulesharks/noobs/rippers etc.

LoL you obv no nothing about the Chicago Metagame (no offense), i dont think Team Pie wins very much anymore.
Nelson-I remember you played my bro at pastimes dec 17, which you beat him unfortunately, which i thought you were sort of crazy, since dunno, lol
FlamingTurkey-lol, i don't know who you are. And, still, even though Saul topdecked, he got some nice draws too, and conserved some of his cards too, and even always doing dark hole 1-1 that day a lot which payed off. His deck was actually good i thought. He made such comebacks though too, which was nice, and he did not Lucksack people either, I HATE that term, he just pulled off an Assailant, which is better than Lucksacking, lol, just thought about that. But, he eventually had to break our curse of 1 person getting 9th at the past 3 regionals which sucked. what's your name by the way?
Peanut -dude-ummm, team pie is good, but not in Chi-Town's meta, i think Mitch Noggle & Justin Heitz are the best people, but they run weird decks for Misty/Iowa meta's. which don't run Decree/Tomato's. mostly beatdown & Tsuky decks and Airknight pwners, also with OTK also. Chi-Town's Meta is better than any other I think, Indy/Madison/Iowa has weird meta. No offense.

Thank you guys for all your congratulations and support. Niles Regionals was indeed crazy. It was nice to see the best from the midwest. It seems that everybody decided to show up on the same day. I know that a lot of people criticized Past Times, but I feel that they did the best that they can do under the circustances. Nobody expected that many people. Some people feel that I get lucky and that I Top deck the right card at the right time. Luck can only carry you some much. Sure Luck it is a factor in this game, but It is impossible to play in 11 rounds and played at minimum of 25 duels and expect that luck will pull you through against very tough competition. Most people build their decks based on their style of play and with some sort of a game plan that puts you in a position to win.

i'm not questioning your skill or anything, its just i dont think you would of won (you probbaly would have top 8) without a lot of luck on your side.
02-07-2006, 08:41 PM
Turkey -- No offense tooken, I DONT know anything about that meta. I jsut remember that I always saw them posting "Team Pie takes Niles regionals" etc.
02-07-2006, 08:46 PM
Can I join?? My cred's arn't that good though :(. Numerous 3-5 finishes at regional's and just recently won a local turney with 7people there.
02-07-2006, 08:57 PM
I agree that lucks does come in handy in tough spots, but some people seem to run very fast and efficient decks that gives you the impression that they always use the best card in every duel.

Hey guys this is Joe. Great job winning regs Saul. Why did you have to win in the top 8, if you would have lost in the 1st round of top 8 i would have gotten my invite passed down to me because i got 6th again. :mad: Just joking, I'm very happy for you, cause you are probaly one of the best sportmanship people i know. When you lose you don't whine about the other person getting lucky, and when you win your not all like "O I'm so great I beat you!".
But i was one spot away from the invite AGAIN! I have to stop losing so early in the top 8.
But great job saul. In the top 8 you beat both of the people that beat me that day. :D
