    People don't need to be directly involved with an event to care about things you know.
    People are starving in Africa, people in America care.
    Shit is happening in Syria, people here don't shut up about it

    Same Idea, different Scale. People can care about an aspect of the franchise that doesn't directly affect them.

    I doubt Norden will be banned in the TCG, since it's so freshly out and they need it to sell tins. I hope they don't ban Ptolemaeus, though; I just got mine, and I want to try and use it in my Yosenju deck...

    That's an awful argument. It's completely valid to not have been in high level play or the event in question, and still observe the problems of that format.

    We don't have Infinity here, without that the best thing he can go into is...Pleides or Knight Diamond
    so no he isn't getting banned, he also won't be seeing as much use

    It was an awful response. I asked how many people in this thread play OCG, you gave me unrelated tournament statistics, I replied to said statistics with something relevant to my original question. I repeat:

    Not saying you don't have a legitimate grievance, but a lot of people (not you or even anyone in particular) seem to have a personal grudge against these decks when they've not even played in the OCG meta. It comes across like mob mentality sometimes.

    Observe, yes, but this is more of "here is what, we, TCG players who have no experience actually playing in the OCG format, think should be changed about the OCG format." I'm just saying I'd prefer to hear from people who actually have experience in the format.

    Disregarding the fact that you akining a discussion about a card game to Africa and Syria is inappropriate, the difference is, the people who care usually have some idea of what's actually happening in those countries. As opposed to Yu-Gi-Oh! players.

    Any discussion of this is going to be painted by our own biases, TCG or otherwise.

    No, TCG isn't OCG, nor is DN format/playing in an OCG format online the actual OCG either.

    But for most of us, that's the best we're going to get.

    So we either don't discuss it at all or we accept we're biased.

    Well, as long as we're admitting that we're biased...

    I mean, I don't we can legitimately expect to have lots of people who play in an actual OCG format here. So yeah.

    You never know, OCG has branched out more than a couple of years ago, but I do see your point.

    If we get that point and have those users, then sure, we can have that conversation.
