The State of the Current Metagame Part VIII--
The Bigger Picture
08.01.06

Hello again to Pojo and Yugioh fans one and all! Sorry for being gone for so long, but I have an announcement. I am joining the Nation Guard Reserve next month, and I'll be gone from August 14th until December 8th, but I"ll be back with a vengeance. Worry not. I hope to throw out some good articles a bit more timely until my departure.

Today, I'm continuing my State of the Metagame series with an article I've entitled, "The Bigger Picture." Now, what do I mean by the bigger picture? Well, the game of Yugioh is in a fragile stae of Jeopardy.
People continue to complain about dominant decktypes, and how the ban list is so important yet does nothing to help the game.

People want a quick fix for Yugioh, and honestly, there isn't one.
There are things you must remember, however. As I have said before, this is our game, for us. WE must take the action to fix this game.
If we sit around and whine and bitch, nothing is going to happen. We can't just sit here and hope the game works itself out.

We can't just sit here and hope Konami or Upper Deck is going to have some miraculous vision or epiphany and just fix everything at the drop of a hat. IF you have a problem or want something done, try e-mailing Upper Deck or Konami. I have many times, and they are very prompt in thier responses.

You and we have to fix our own problems. Remember, your side deck is an excellent tool, that some duelists just don't even take advantage of. The purpose of the side deck is to counter threats you may see.
Use it to help, that's why it's their people. Also, I've said before, if a dominant decktype bothers you, then DO NOT PLAY IT!

You playing what wins but being pissed off because it is what you see everywhere doesn't help anything, it just makes things worse, right?
Right. Try our new decks, build things you may like using as opposed to what you know works. Be different, and try to solve these problems yourself. Be innovative. Winning is fun, but not everything. Gain experience through your losses.

Well, that does it for today, and I hope you enjoyed it. As always, please feel free to send me anything, @ tsearcy@lssu.edu. To finish, you may e-mail me while I'm gone, I just probably won't be able to rerply until I return, but I expect many MANY e-mail when I return.
You'll be hearing from me several times again before I leave.

You stay classy, Planet Earth :)

~Dark Paladin~
