ThatGuy's Shot: Practice, Not Playoffs - That Guy

 

Welcome back for round 2 on ThatGuy's Shot! Today I'll be discussing the art of practice, we talkin' bout practice, not playoffs, practice. Mora vs Iverson

But anyway, on to the topic. I'm sure many of yall go to locals and what not to get some practice in. Whether it be vs the average player or noob. Looks in mirror...hey wait a minute! But what is practice, or better yet, how do you practice well. *Looks in Yu-Gi-Oh! Handbook for beginners.* And before I go any deeper in depth (especially into this booklet, dang small font!), this is just a tip, not something you need to follow, like the rude comments I got in my first shot. So anyway, the first thing to establish is your time frame for practice. How long are you willing to spend on practicing Yu-Gi-Oh? More on weekends is usually what people aim for and that's what I will say. Next, find a better or at least equal opponent, but try not to turn down every offer for a duel. But when you practice against better players, you are more likely to lose and gain from experience and mistakes. Seriously, how much glory do you get as opposed to a bad rep when you whoop a beginner and laugh your butt off...c'mon. And raise your hand and say you are undefeated after a 100 duels. That's why practice makes perfect, even in a children's card game. Also try and make some friends with some strong duelists. So now you have the time frame and opponent(s), move on to recap. At the end of the day, recap what went wrong and what went right...especially the wrong part, and make corrections to be ready for the next time you duel. Side decks are an important part of the game...then why don't I use one ?
Now here's one more thing. Don't be ashamed to lock yourself up in your room and cry . No...don't be afraid to practice against yourself. Netdeck for practice not playoffs (er. tournaments). Create innovative decks such as Deck Mill, Gravekeeper's, Crystal Beasts, etc. Practice vs everything so you'll be ready.

Recap: Time is key. Opponents are key. Correction is key. Deck Variation is key.
Bob: "Is there anything that's not key?"
Me (more like Denis Green): "High performance helicopter."
