    Sup guys. So it is terrible for a reserve to do this but I was just informed today! On sunday I'll be heading out to sea for two weeks. So, it would be nice to get as many matches as possible before then. I am free weekdays from 5:30-10:30 CST~ pm me or xbox me or something. Once again, XBL tag: Blissey

    Love it when they give you short notice. The gave me a week notice that I was given Ramstein in Germany. A week to get my shit pack and all the other preparations? That's fucked.

    Lost one of three so far against truck and his black deck.

    I maybe could have stood a chance if I had used your assassin on your specter, but I had thought I would be able to tap it, and then have his ability kill himself. Turns out, no!

    again i feel i got lucky. The first match i got destroyed, but rallied back in the next two (one was all one sided for me and the other was a more even match) My main luck was the lack of forest walking elves. But either way were some good matches.

    BlueBlue you have only played one match or only lost one match to truck-a-saurus?

    Ocoto, you only got destroyed the first match because you got mana screwed. Two lands and that deck do not mix so well. As for the last game, I made some bad, bad, bad plays that I'm still kicking myself for. I also had to mulligan twice to get a completely crappy hand. But, I had tons of fun and am waiting to take on my next challenge! I should be on Friday and Saturday morning for those who feel up to it.

    I've not assigned any more until everyone has one game in. But you'll be playing everyone eventually so you're free to play anyone you want whenever you want. Assigned games are just a target to keep things moving.

    I just beat Moridin 2-0. It was not a glorious victory but some really bad luck with draws on Moridin's side leaving him mana short and unable to answer the blue flier army.

    I've got Cullen lined up to take over from Blueblue when he sadly has to leave us.

    Bad news everyone. I don't know why or how, but I am banned from XBL for one week. I haven't been on in a few days and then today I'm banned. Give me some time and I'll be back in the game. What sucks is that apparently, what you've accomplished in Duels is saved on XBL. That being said, if your banned you can't login. Not being able to log in means that as far as the game is concerned, you've unlocked nothing. Gay.

    Jam has handed the reigns of the tourney over to me. Can everyone who is in the tourney shoot me a private message just to confirm you are still interested and willing to finish. Ill also send out a message on xbox just to make sure everyone is still good to go (and if not ill get some subs in where needed). And then ill get some match assignments out and we can get some more results in (and as always if you are on with someone else and have time for yo matches go ahead and do them and just post the results)

    That's fucking awesome, your play on words here. When my elite went down, I cried for three days. That's how long it took me to figure out what was wrong and fix it.

    perfect its yours! ok now that we have all the slots filled again and with the weekend coming up i want to encourage everyone to at least get one complete set of matches in (more would be better) Kraterface and I are going to run a proper tournament but we will wait till this battle of the decks is done before starting it up.

    Well i lost 2 matches to 1 against Jam Warrior and the blue deck. the last game was a close one too, but there just wasnt much i could do against his phantom warrior, and the cancelling of all my decent spells. Good games though!

    I think I've friended just about everybody. If anyone hasn't recieved an invite from me please feel free to drop me one as I'm able to play most nights. I probably won't have a headset on for voice but that shouldn't be a problem.

    That being said will any developer ever figure out something to discourage people from dropping? It's a real drag to put 30 minutes into a 4-way match just to have people drop out before the game is even over. If your net connection is so shitty that it's going to affect your rank if you get a loss when you bail then it should be the players responsibility to figure out their connectivity issues. I'm just so sick of people dropping and this isn't the only game that it is rampant in.

    don't know if Jam and I will get our game in this week. time difference from UK to USA is a pain and both of us have days where we won't even be near the xbox. missed him by like 40 minutes last night (my fault there) In order to catch him I'd have to get on the moment I'm home from work which is tough. doing some house hunting this week and next. He is out for the weekend....think he is getting married? well congrats on whatever you are up to this weekend Jam.

    anybody else here think we can get a game in? I'm usually on around 8 - 12 EST or so.

    played my match against Truck and the black deck, ended up 2 to 1 in my favour. I still think i mostly win due to lucky draws (or unlucky ones for my opponents). Hopefully there will be some other matches reported soon!
