I was very unhappy with the way the event was judged. The judge, I think his name was Steve... was very rude with all the kids. He was very testy and just plain rude, he said people weren't allowed to do things... then he would do exactly what he said is not allowed. For instance I had some new people with me... (by new, I mean played Pokemon... and done anything Pokemon related for about 2 weeks) I asked if it would be okay if I helped him with his deck in the main event, I was told I wasn't allowed. Next thing I know, he's helping his daughter build her deck. I and a few others I was with saw him take cards from his pocket and give them to his daughter and put them in her deck... after play had began already. I was not the only one complaining, he was very rude with the kids. A few people were waiting for the pairings to go up, he had them in his hands and was about to put them up, my friend was looking at them and he got yelled at, not asked to stop looking, he was told to get back and stop looking or he would be kicked out... He made many comments like that to a lot of people, I heard a lot of kids complaining and a lot of parents as well, it just wasn't ran very well at all. Not to mention every time I asked if they were selling boxes or anything I was told no... then people were floating around the place and a few of them had just bought boxes. We asked multiple times if they'd sell, they said after the side events, but things were sold to a few people way before, during the main event... I think a total of 16 packs was sold at the middle of the side event... It went like that all day, everytime a kid told me they bought a box me or a friend went and asked and got a rude response, like "For the last time we're not selling boxes yet" when some kids had just bought some... Like I said, I was not the only one saying it wasn't ran well. I've talked to a few people at events he's judged before and I got a lot of similar things to what happened at this. I'm sorry but if you're going to run a card tournament, you need to be patient with the kids... they're going to be excited, you don't have to get nasty and rude with them like this judge did. I've unfortunately had the displeasure of playing in tournaments he's judged before, I normally would say maybe it was a one time thing, but in all my previous experiences with this particular judge has gone like this, he's been very rude toward the kids and shouldn't be running these things, he's unfair and favorable to his daughter a lot of the time. I'm hoping to get a response from Nintendo about this, I've e-mailed them about this, I'm not the only one either I heard a lot of people saying they were going to try and contact Nintendo about the attitude of the judge. One of my friends went up to ask him a question, he had his back to my friend and when he turned around he got angry at my friend and said "Do not stand behind me, it irritates me" or something along those lines and doesn't ask if he needed anything or try to answer a question or anything. I would normally quit attending events he's a part of, if I knew for sure he'd be at them, I might start going to other tournaments a bit further away, hopefully I'll find one that has friendlier staff and is more fun to play in, I'm sorry but being yelled at and treated badly all day is not fun, for anyone. If he'd chill with the attitude and the bias judging for his child, it wouldn't be so bad.
