I was very excited to return to locals. It’s been nearly a year since I last stepped inside of the store and I was ready for a hardcore card fight. I have not had time to hang out there since graduating from college. My locals mainly have Magic the Gathering players. There are a few Cardfight!! Vanguard players.
However, the trip was a huge letdown. None of the Cardfight!! Vanguard players were there. I asked one of the regulars if the guys still come to the store and he said they rarely come to the store these days. Nobody ever played Yu-Gi-Oh! at the shop.
I feel really disappointed that there is not a locals for Cardfight!! Vanguard and Yu-Gi-Oh! in my town. Both games sell very well in stores. However, players are not playing the game here. The only local in town does not support leagues and tournaments for both games. Dueling Network and the Cardfight Arena are the only places for me to play. I don’t mind playing the games online. However, I prefer to play people in person because it is exciting. I can talk about the game and learn from others.
I did buy five packs today. At first I bought three packs and did not pull a RR or RRR. I was having a RR and RRR losing streak in my last 17 packs purchased this year. I bought to more packs and I pulled a very nice Liberator of the Flute, Escrad. Wingal Liberator and Dreaming Jewel Knight, Tiffany were also nice pulls. Looks like I’m going to be building a Liberator deck very soon.
All in all, I’m going to continue to play and collect Cardfight!! Vanguard and Yu-Gi-Oh!. The games are apart of my life. I guess I will never be a part of a Cardfight!! Club. At least I pulled a few nice cards today and the holo drought has finally ended!
