    Rules (open)
    However, before you join, you absolutely need:

    1. Redshark, the simulator we will be using.
    2. Hamachi, a tool you need to connect to other players over the internet.

    Elaborate instructions on the technical side of things come with Redshark in the form of a great Help file. If you need help getting things to work, testing them out, etc, join us in #tcg on synIRC!

    Allowed Sets
    Diamond and Pearl
    Mysterious Treasures
    Secret Wonders
    Great Encounters
    Majestic Dawn
    Legends Awakened
    Stormfront
    Platinum
    Rising Rivals
    Supreme Victors
    Arceus
    Heart Gold and Soul Silver
    Heart Gold and Soul Silver Unleashed

    - No banned cards.
    - No mulligan rule.
    - Matches are Best out of 3.

    Due to the way the simulator works, we rely a lot on the honesty and goodwill of all players involved. Please do not abuse this reliance. Be a good sport when solving problems and disputes, contact me if needed. We will use the Compendium when in doubt about a card's rulings.

    Ok, I'll choose/fix up my decks and duel Lightwolf ASAP.

    EDIT: Just contacted LightWolf, we're gonna play as soon as he finishes deck building.

    RBG, take zy's advice and don't use full heals :D

    Also, guys, i have one single deck for this gen. And i'll use it to win the tourneys. I trust my deck more than my skills. More than any other card in this gen.
    Trust my deck.

    LinIsKorean won the first game in an extremely close and fun match, with two Fainting Spell tails to my disadvantage which sucked. Then he got a horrible start against my Luxchomp and got two Super Scoop tails to his disadvantage, evening out karma. Then in the third game, he ended up disconnecting when I was up 4-1 (3-1 if you consider he was about to knock out my Luxray). After a lot (I mean a lot) of deliberation between us two as well as with SDS and Deck Knight later it was mostly agreed upon that I would have gotten up Garchomp C lv X up and Dragon Rush something on his bench for the kill. So even though I don't like doing it, I think I have to give myself the win here.

    Lin is a great sport though and deserved to go all the way. Overall, the entire progress (with "brb dinner", "brb breakfast" and "brb determining 10000 possible scenarios for what could have happened in the last game") has taken about six hours now.

    gg x 3

    Won the first against Mekkah with some luck, lost the second due to a terrible start, and dced towards the end of the third which was a bad matchup for me. The match was in Mekkah's favor though so I think we're agreeing to just have him take the win. GGs!

    I beat Chrisisme in 2 battles. GG both of us had mess ups but he did one that probably lost him the 2nd match.

    Prediction breaker I am!
