    I do not actively partake in the game (I have no idea how new rules go, I stopped paying attention at the introduction of LV X's) however I am/was a collector. I have a few old/rare cards in my collection, such as holographic Base/Fossil/Jungle/Rocket/Gym cards, event cards, a few Shiny cards, and a small amount of full arts.
    I used to play PTCG Online but my internet can not handle the game anymore and for whatever reason I can not access my account even on the main website OR re-download the game (I had deleted it as my internet wouldn't let it open)

    OMG YOU DO NOT KNOW HOW LONG I HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR SOMETHING JUST LIKE THIS

    The LV modern TCG master has arrived.

    I started collecting cards since the beginning of Gen 4. I still own 2 Arceus Tins, which are probably my favourite cards from that era. Since then, I got really attracted to EX cards, despite being terribly overpowered in some cases, because of their rarity (Arceus never got an EX card, which saddened me). Mega EXs were just mental.

    Then GX cards arrived. At first, I, along with a bunch of others, didn't like how overpowered they were, being able to KO Megas in 1 attack. However, I was attracted by the new Rainbow Rare cards, which replaced the Secret Rares, and I have packed 6 so far: Pheromosa, Darkrai, Buzzwole, Kommo-o, Silvally and, best of all, Tapu Lee.

    I've been getting back into the TCG (online at least), but it took me a day or so to learn my way around the new rules.

    I have been lucky to pull a Glaceon GX from the new set a few days ago, and I did win my first event tournament over the weekend (using the Bright Tide deck)

    If I have one complaint about Pokémon TCG is that they seem to want to make you buy the newest cards since they are overpowered compared to the old cards. Such as the original Charmander had like 50 health and the newest Charmander now has 60, 70, or maybe even 80 health.

    What do you guys think about some of the legendary Pokémon whether it being GX or EX?

    They all have a good design, at least as Full-Art. But I think some are way too strong, compared to others. And there way too many of these, and as I said they're too strong. In my opinion, they are break the game.

    They made it to where you have to have Pokémon that are immune to them or have the legendaries themselves in all of your decks, most of the ex's were fine, but the majority of the gx's are op onto themselves (Without the help of items and other things). I think they should make it to where you could have only one gx in a deck (As they have done with prism Pokémon) as a way to sort of nerf them, but what do I know?

    That is actually a decent Idea! But I would say that max. 3 cards are allowed, or to make them weaker.
    And actually, you have to use them to win. As for myself, I always needed a Gx/ Ex-card to defeat them.

    What is everyone's TCGO username?
    Mine is, of course, Laserdragon14, for my sanity's sake and so I don't have to keep up with a bunch of different usernames.

    I started playing the TCGO game, but I wasn't able to do much before my firewall started blocking the game's service, which rendered it completely unplayable. Which is a shame, because I was actually starting to get into the actual gameplay of the TCG for the first time ever. But now I'm just back to occasionally getting the cards to add to my collection. I don't even remember how many cards I have, but its definitely somewhere over a thousand.

    So did anyone go to the Celestial Storm Prerelease? I did and got my first loss in a long time 1-2-0.

    I got donked 1st round by weakness

    2nd round I forgot to put down prizes (or I picked them up IDK) but was losing anyways

    3rd I set up like a beast and won super fast

    Pulled the Delcatty Promo which was the rarest but probs good only in prerelease (Or as a one of in decks that use Ditto Prism Star)

    Also
    Pyroar seems hecka good in expanded (I theorize anyways), play three Immune to basics and one Item/Supporter Immune and 4 Breaks- you have immunity to night march and can hit 210 with choice. Its costly energy wise but you have good energy turbo options. I might try to make it because it seems soooo good

    pyroar is annoying and good, since I play expanded most of the time cause I want to be able to make my decks with what I have rather than remember the rules and what is not banned in a certain format

    I've been collecting TCG cards for as long as I can remember, but I didn't get into the card game until 2015. I learned how to play the TCG while watching the 2015 world tournament. I am no competitive player, but because of the way I learned how to play, I do have a competitive eye. I used to play the online version, but it just wasn't as satisfying as playing in person and I kind of phased out of it after having no one to play with. I could get back into the online version though.

    I don't recall if I've ever actually played the TCG with the proper rules. My friend and I would play using our own simplified version that ignored Energy Cards when we were young and I haven't really played since. I do have quite the collection, though.

    I’ve never played the game with proper rules. As a kid, whenever I bought a pack of Pokémon cards (which was rare), I usually threw out the item and energy cards and only kept the Pokémon. I battled only using the Pokémon and ignored the card whenever it said anything about discarding an energy or search your hand for an item.
    I used to play the online version (the app on my ipad) but eventually it got really boring and it was hard to get coins to buy booster packs. Not to mention I’m terrible at the game. I still have a decently large collection of cards I don’t use. I haven’t bought any since 2014.
