Sorry for not blogging. Been busy these past 10 days. hehe Anyway I was suppose to talk about another deck of mine, but I want to say something about VS here in the Philippines.
Ever since UDE ‘abandoned’ its VS players in Asia, we are still keeping the game alive. We are creating different [and unique] formats so that the ‘retired’ players may find interest in coming out of VS retirement, and court people to come and play VS. We are getting our stocks of post-MTU sets from the US [I think], so we are not left behind by the rest of the UDE supported places. So far, I think we’re doing great. Our hobby leagues are not canceled due to the lack of players, we are getting the cards we want [except for the horrible card distribution of DWF, which resulted into the ‘semi-retirement’ of the 1st VS Skillze Challenge Champion], and we’re getting new players. Except for Aaron’s ‘semi-retirement’, everything’s cool, right? 😀
But then, tragedy showed its ugly head, as terrorists [not really sure, but I’ll call them ‘terrorists’ =P haha] bombed a part of Glorietta, the mall where most Makati-based players [and new players] have their weekly hobby league in Neutral Grounds [specifically G2]. It didn’t stop players from continuing the HL. They didn’t play in Glorietta, though. haha They played in another branch of Neutral Grounds, located in Robinson’s Galleria [5 or more train stations away from Glorietta]. See how Filipinos love VS? Bomb a mall, play in another. hehe 😀
What troubles me about that bombing is the effect it MAY have in ‘recruiting’ new players. Potential new players may not attend or show up in HLs due to the fear of being bombed. The bombing did strike fear into the hearts of a lot of people, which resulted into my mom forbidding me to play in the HL [for now hehe]. I just hope it won’t be a problem recruiting players, since lightning doesn’t strike at the same place twice, right?
All I can say now is… Long live Glorietta! Long live VS! haha
[What a pathetic ending… haha I got no writing skillze at all… =P haha]
Shameless plugging..? haha
Oh yeah… I got the title from what Superboy Prime said in Part 8 of the Sinestro Corps… hehe 😀 ^_^
