    Not Sure If Should be Dueling...

    Post by MnRebel27 on Sun Aug 18, 2013 2:22 am

    People say that it is dumb to quit because of luck. What if your luck is so bad that even with building a deck specifically meant to counter the deck you are facing, and you load it with draw power, you still lose? I don't even know why I duel, because things like this happen to me all the time. I somehow manage to pull the worst hand for the situation almost every game.

    Am pretty sure am not the right person to tell you this but : everybody has a lose streak, then a win streak will appear. I always have short periods when i draw total bull and then 2 days later i draw godly hand. Plus , yu-gi-oh is a game, and a game is here to have fun. If you dont have fun anymore, then you should consider quiting. I stopped yugioh for 212 days exactly because i didn`t have fun anymore, not because i was loosing... As long as you have FUN playing the game , you should just stay , whatever the heck you draw

    maybe that's your problem. Your deck isnot consisitant at all. YOu need to focus less on draw power, (unless its a DW deck or something) and focus on consistance. i did the same,.

    It doesn't matter what deck I use.  I have some very consistent decks, yet whenever I use them I magically face hard counters.  For example, I use Naturia and end up dueling Monster Mash.  Also, in a Sophia deck, you will ALWAYS have consistency issues.  It is simply the way I get the issues that is beyond absurd.  I keep drawing Sophia early on, which is an extremely dead draw.  Every time I pull Breath of the Valiant I am unable to pull out more than one kind of monster.  I tend to get the single copy in my deck in my starting hand all the time, too.  Lately I've been getting all my rituals in my hand as well, but no monsters to use them with.  When this happens, I literally get the worst possible hand achievable in the deck.  Yet this is consistently happening, even though statistically speaking it is nigh improbable.  Not to mention getting my 50/50 guesses wrong virtually every time.

    Mn you've been going on about this ever since I met you. I know it's tough << you've told me these things on more than one account. And frankly, I've said all I can.

    All I can say is work harder on your decks, don't over think it, don't give a card you think will be good a second thought bc you think your bad luck will always make it end up at the bottom of the deck. Keep trying, rely less on luck, don't make your deck overly consistent, bc you need to take chances to get results.

    Personally, just rely on your sheer creativity. Your flaw is thinking luck caused this, and whether that's true or not... It's best you discard that perception. Please Mn, just keep trying. (And don't even think about telling me your rl luck problems u.u)

    On the bright side, wasn't going to tell you this but... you best be on dn in 3 hours (3pm where you are, I believe. Bc I think I'll go on dn around that time...)

    Life just gets me down >.>  You see, the problem is that I understand probability too well.  If I didn't, then I wouldn't be upset.  I've done the math on the chances for these things happening by chance alone, and the percentages are so low that I need to use scientific notation to adequately express them.  That's why I'm so mad.  I know I need to change my thinking, but it is so difficult.  I'm working on it.

    Btw, the reason I got into Lockdowns and Anti-Meta back in the day was because luck didn't matter in those decks.  At least to me.  Perhaps I should play them more, but they keep getting banned in the tournaments :/

    Also, why weren't you gonna tell me? Because of my mood?

    More like a surprise. But I can understand that thinking. I'm not as bad as you luck wise I suppose, so it's hard to relate in that case... But you haven't given up before, so it's pointless to try now. I do wish you luck on changing how you view things though.

    Not giving up bc ik most of it is just in my head. I just have to get that stuff out when I feel bad, otherwise it just bottles up inside me. I should really start a stress journal so that I don't burden people with my problems all the time >.>

    Honestly I never really call it luck only odds(just a rule of mine), so even if you have a 1 in 10 chance of failing that 10% is still out there, I had a semi draw deck about a year ago and after a tourny match with Skull I got rid of it I took the spots that had draw cards and adding more cards that fit the style of deck(in a way increasing the odds)

    And you can give this any rules, pics or wordings but this is a card game and like any card game Odds rules all

    Perhaps, but if things repeatedly happen to you that have a 5.0 x 10-15% chance of occurring, it really gets you down.

    maybe you need a change of deck? Like somthing you really like, not because it let you win but because you enjoy it?

    Change of deck? Lol. It has nothing to do the deck. Furthermore, I have a large number of decks and change which I use frequently. I do not play decks solely to win, which is why people do not see me playing meta.

    I understand how you feel. For a while, no matter what deck I used, I ended up pulling out the worst possible hand imaginable. This changed when I discovered a deck that I really liked - Lightsworn. After I started using that deck, most of the hands I drew were pretty good. I've tried using other decks, like Gishki and Agents, but none of them produced quite as good of results as Lightsworn. My luck's pretty terrible, too, but to keep trying is the key. Maybe it's finding a deck that suits you, maybe it's just taking a break for a while and going back. But other than that - it's a game, as everyone else on this topic has said. Games are to have fun, and if you need to take a break from it, nothing bad's gonna happen.

    Lol ofc Lightsworn will give you a better setup than Giskhis and Agents. Anyways, I know the decks that work best for me, but I like to build as many decks as I can.

    Rainbow, you don't suck. You probably just end up dueling people that have more experience than you, such as an Obelisk-level person on DN.

    Why? The shuffler randomizes the deck. If you want to blame something, blame probability, and perhaps the lack of draw/search cards in your deck.
