Oh, I forgot to mention who I’m fighting for.

Put me in for Mexico


My Rook is gonna be a wall that keeps you out of this tournament.


Is Midori going to pay for it?


flagrantangles wins 3-0 vs @Fluffiness

:quince::psfist::pschip::persephone: I led Quince because I figure he’s the most expendable and I feel at least moderately comfortable playing him against anyone. He leads Persephone and I’m not unversed in this matchup. I start off with a 9-throw and keep him in the washing machine with K and J spin because, little did I know, he didn’t have a single throw to contest the K with. Near the end of the game, I spin K and I know if I land it, I can combo into a 7 for exactly lethal. However, I also have a suspicion that he will try and throw me so I poke out with a three and hope to topdeck a Queen. I am correct and my luck holds. Fluffiness concedes.
:onimaru::psfist::pschip::zane: I switch to Onimaru since I don’t want to play Geiger into Persephone. He switches to Zane. We really scrap with one another. I attack a lot and throw once. I get dodged a couple of times but have some lucky jokers to back me up when needed. Near the end I want to throw again, but I decide to dodge since I’d just thrown his dodge and think it might be too tempting and he might just play a normal or something at me. He plays Minimum Anarchy, which would have been lethal, and I use Final Authrowity for lethal.
:geiger::psfist::pschip::persephone: The MU I tried to avoid comes back to haunt me. I start off by poking out a throw into nothing. My hand is sitting pretty with a 4*, J, Q, K, and A in it. I poke out another throw with the J. I draw another J and decide to chuck it into Perse’s dodge. Then the vortex begins and he’s throwing me around. I’m getting worried and dejected. Eventually, I Timekick my way up and then I put TD up since I’ve drawn into a second Ace. He tries to throw me and I just normal attack with a 3 hoping to either poke out a throw or cross him up. I succeed and basically combo my entire hand into a 50 point combo. He’s left with 5 or so life. I topdeck a 7-throw and use it. I catch his dodge and close out the set.

GGs Fluffiness! I’m sorry that the draws were not in your favor in the first game. :frowning:

Southpaw Hare wins!

…holy crap, there’s a recently-used section for the emoticons now. And it stays open and lets me click more than one in a row! So now I can type :psfist::pschip: or :pschip::psfist: easily!



…what an amazing world we live in.


It’s a cancer to us mobile users.


Good games! No recording owing to technical issues, which is a shame, because especially the Zane/Gloria match was fun. Highlights include nearly throwing a large Setsuki lead by clashing Ninpo Flash with (pretty face-up) Anarchy, and SPH 10-throwing for victory with BBB when I thought there was no way he’d throw me again.


Yomi Olympic Carnival 2018, Week 1
Nerdo Crombezia vs. USA (@ClanNatioy)

:chibionimaru::psfist::pschip::chibigrave: - Onimaru ejected
:chibizane::psfist::pschip::chibigrave: - Zane ejected
:chibigwen::psfist::pschip::chibigrave: - Gwen ejected

Final Score:
Nerdo Crombezia 3-0 USA

The coach for the Nerdo Crombezia team was so excited because the team got him his first _______ of the year!

GGs Clan. I don’t think we’d played in a tournament setting before today, so it was refreshing getting to play someone who I hadn’t faced before. Good luck to you the rest of the way.


I can’t believe I missed this post.

Welcome to Yomi! I’m glad you decided to join this fournament, but I’ve noticed a small problem with your lineup. It seems you’ve only selected 2 characters: :chibitroq::chibirook:. This might put you at a disadvantage, as everyone else will have 3 selected. It’s fine if you want to run this stable, though. Your decision!

I have it on good word that Geiger gets deleted in 2018


Fenix (US Midwest) vs. @Bob199 (Taiwan)

:onimaru: :psfist: :pschip: :valerie:
“wait hold on”
:degrey: :psfist: :pschip: :valerie:
“Yooooooooo the comeback is real!”


GGs Bob, always a pleasure. :slight_smile:


Zqxx v @Hobusu

:argagarg::psfist::pschip::onimaru: A perfect! The theoretical MU chart is vindicated.
:midori::psfist::pschip::setsuki: He jokers my FDB :cry:.
:setsuki::psfist::pschip::setsuki: A slugfest of back and forth combos until we both draw into really awkward hands and spend the end game dealing damage 6 points at a time.

Good games!


I don’t feel too bad about these results except for the first round; in hindsight, I’m not sure why I picked Oni first… GGs!

MR (Liguria) vs @Bomber678 (Australia)

:menelker::psfist::pschip::menelker: balanced start, then I spent a lot of bQ (up/down form discard) and cards… and he took me down 6hp vs 35hp, but luckily I guessed right in some crucial combat and landed some bQ lowering his hands. Oh, @JonnyD shouting at Bomber helped too :blush:

:grave::pschip::psfist::menelker: 1 Joker burned on 1st combat (and no dmg escape…) and got the other one oblivioned on 2nd one… then we go through a back and forth game (got all my As oblivioned and Q too…) and finally I landend my “bold” throw vs a massive K++6A… :sob:

:grave::psfist::pschip::rook: I build an early TPoS and kept it in hand all the game. I was taken down to 16hp vs 59, then (thanks to good draws) I managed to deal some dmg/cheap dmg to 41hp, when I guessed right on a 6 attack vs a throw -->TPoS

:gwen::psfist::pschip::rook: I got luck on throw/attack range in early game and I was able to took him down on low hps and then Gwen could be quite efficient with relentless strike and As

Respect and GGs

close games all around! ggs!


The last play of game 2 was a 50/50 for me. I chose poorly.

I felt I did pretty well against the World Yomi Champion. Games were close except for Troq/Lum I think. Thanks for a fun set.


Mexico (Leontes) vs. Arstotzka (Copper8642)

:menelker::midori::grave: vs. :menelker::bbb::vendetta:


:grave::psfist::pschip::vendetta: I’ll let Copper tell the story lol
:midori::psfist::pschip::vendetta: I like this matchup. Sometimes you get to like 24 cards remaining in deck, finally draw a 2 and then immediately FDB a :vendetta: and kill him somehow
:menelker::pschip::psfist::bbb: The best part about conquest is I only have to fight this asshole robot once a set
:menelker::psfist::pschip::vendetta: Game was in complete topdeck mode at the end, fortunately my character can powerup for reversals and his character has none in his deck

Mexico Wins!

GGs @Copper8642! I was surprised not to see the :menelker:. Thanks for the high-level strategy of always drawing and playing your bQs as much as possible. It proved very successful; I will try this more in the future. I got an inscribed bQ in my post-game card pack, so I can use that to track my success.

I am sure you will bring GLORY TO ARSTOZKA soon.


I got deported instead
