I understand where you're coming from re: Limited these days. We've just got to accept that we're dinosaurs at this point and that Limited Magic has moved on. Perhaps not to our liking, but perhaps for the best of the game overall. I don't know. It's longer and longer between the sets I actually enjoy. Khans was fine, but I didn't think it was great, and all the sets surrounding it (Theros block, M15, Fate Reforged, Dragons of Tarkir, Magic Origins) have been bummers for me Limited-wise. I still have hope for Return to Zendikar, and I am excited for it.
But instead of taking a break from the game, like you have, I've turned to the enemy (constructed). I wouldn't say I play a lot, but I play pretty much every competitive constructed format (Vintage, Legacy, Modern, Standard) every now and then, and I've been enjoying it. Constructed is a lot more fun when you just play when you want to, and what you want. I'm currently pondering attending GP Prague next year (Legacy), which would be my first trip to a constructed GP in eight years. More important than the actual game, however, is having a couple of close friends who are excited about constructed, and bringing me along to various tournaments. The three of us have, as a result, dominated the local scene for a while. Most of the time, all three of us are in the top eight of any given tournament, with one of us ending up taking it down. The WMCQ last week was no exception, with me facing one of said friends in the final (and him earning the invite in the end). It's fun to play with friends, and it's fun to feel like you're doing something right.
Speaking of doing something right, what's up with Tahn's recent resurgence? This weekend he almost took down GP Prague, and he's already crushed some tournaments earlier this year. It's pretty sweet to see.
Yep, still alive! And Tahn's stuff has been quite cool to see. Right now, I just can't financially justify Limited, which is kind of a shame, because Battle for Zendikar actually looks pretty neat.
Ah well, I REALLY like Cube and EDH, and I've been having fun setting records in a small speedrun community (Terraria), so that's been a blast.
Re:Bateleur - Noted! I'll definitely look for you on one or two of those nifty social media platforms. Hope making games is going well.
Quote from Cardoc »Hey guys, I hop in to say hello and see whose still around and all the recent posts are talking about how nobody is here anymore (or at least as much as we all were when Promatim first formed the clan a few years back)! Kind of ironic. My personal involvement on the forums has been extremely minimal lately, mostly due to the fact that I can't access the site from work and find myself too busy for lengthy forum posts at home these days.
But I still think of you guys all the time and I still play! Still limited exclusively and still almost exclusively online.
However! My real reason for checking in here today was to see if anyone is planning on being at GP Madison this weekend? As you may or may not recall Madison is my home town and I'd be very excited to meet any of you. I'll be playing in the main event (a limited GP in my home town, wouldn't miss it for almost anything!) Let me know if anyone is going to be there, please!
Haha, yeah, you did kinda walk in on us all reminiscing about how we're never here.
I like to check on the clan now and then, just to see how things are going. It's been since... whatever came before Theros, that I really, really followed Magic. I never thought I'd go on this long of a break again, and I feel kind of filthy.
As soon as I have some spare cash, I'm hopping back on the limited train.
Edit: And I'm a bit far from Madison, but if I'm ever by that way visiting my cousins, I'll look you up!
