First WS tournament
So I had my first WS tournament at Alex’s place in Atria yesterday. I managed to snag the last seat, denying other more experienced players from joining. It was okay I guess, went 2-2 with a common/uncommon deck, so yeah, the experience was fun for me. The general crux of WS is still ratio management, I saw first hand how top decks crash and burn because of ill-timed Climax control.
Another thing I noticed was damage dealing control is also crucial. Dealing too much at a wrong time is disastrous. Perfectly timed counters also made the top guy winning the tournament (well, I think he won, I had to scoot off right after my match).
There were lots of people trying out Black Rock Shooter decks. Generally I managed to find out that a guy bought an average of 9 boxes to have enough to build a deck. There’s a couple of Nanoha and Railgun, 1 mixed deck that really did well and quite a number of Haruhi as well. Oh and 3 Melty Blood decks including mine. Apparently I’m the only one running a splash deck while everyone else pretty much stuck to a single colour or theme (like a Door theme, or a Book theme).
I have an idea for a hurricane mix deck theme but I’m still finding out what cards to include, seeing as some event cards also has the hurricane icon on it. The tournament exposure really opened my eyes to more deck ideas. And that is awesome. Just acquired F/SN starter too. I don’t mind buying a couple more starters because the two cards with one copy is pretty awesome for level 0.
