This post will be a little shorter as it's an ongoing project, but hopefully it's one that should interest you all.
As you all know, I've been working on setting up an April 2005 format group. What I have discovered is that duelistgroundz also has its own Goat community with a bulkier player roster. Naturally I am now registered and subscribed. Although they do have a larger community, they do seem to be a little unorganised, so perhaps I could lend assistance there.
I intend to do something a little unorthodox; I plan to create an inter-forum community. I'm not quite sure how I'm going to go about this and to my knowledge nothing like this has been attempted before. The end objective is to make one large group instead of several small groups. What this will do is make it easier to find games and perhaps increase the community's influence overall.
To my knowledge, DN still doesn't have a community for this, so this will be my next project once I can at least secure interactions between the communities.
If we can get enough demand, we may be able to persuade the DN admins to have a fully fledged option for this format.
On another note, I have fully retired from Advanced gameplay. I've grown sick of the metagame and how boring it is. Most decks play themselves and build themselves, and most games are decided by raw luck more than anything else. It's gotten to the point where it's fairly safe to say that skill is largely irrelevant in the meta. I've had games where I've misplayed the entire way and still gotten wins simply because the deck I'm using is so obscenely powerful. Winning this way isn't satisfactory, and losing this way is bitter. I can't take it anymore.
