    Back from my month long 'vacation' from PokeGym I figured i'd post a little about my cities.




    Week 1:Duluth & Austell , GAI found myself going north this week. The only cities in FL where south FL. AKA Randieville . Overall they were like 5-6 hours from my house, it was only 4 hours to GA, so we went north. I ran Gallade/Absol. It was not pretty on saturday as I CRUISED to a 6-1 day, losing to my dad in t2 , literally on a coin flip. Sunday, much like saturday it was fairly easy all day.When people aren't prepared for absol it's a beast. I went 7-0 and first place.


    13-1 at cities


    Week 2:Orlando & Melbourne, FL This was the week of Sci-Fi CC. This tournament is always HUGE, it's in central orlando and the league is around 60-70 players weekly. Same as week 1, I decided to run absol/G&G The tournament however starts poorly as I get t2d by a banette. the match is so heavily in my favor i'm disguisted. Especially considering this kid is a randie and decided to FOLD a game which he won on t2 to hurt my resistance. In the end I go 5-1, I miss cut at 5th place. Apparantly I accuse our PTO of organizing the whole concession of the kid from rd1... This later became known as the "Craig Conspiracy".

    Sunday.Once again I run G&G. I start off cruising, 2-0. Round 3 I end up losing due to 2 prizes ralts and one of my night maitenance, I never draw the other. I sac'd a ralts t2 so I fight with a long poke all game. I finish the tournament at 4-1, only to once again miss cut as 5th place.

    22-3 at cities


    Week 3: Kissimmee & Brandon, FL This was prolly one of the most legit tournaments of the season. Zach F, Bianchi, Alex H, Steve S, John S, and Eric C all in the same room. I made a bad judgement call and decided to go with Absol/Empoleon. it's a terribly inconsistant deck, which I will never play again. I start off 3-0, play Zach with Magmortar and get rolled. I win the next 3, only to see Zach in finals again and lose. I got 3 empoleons up in 4 games vs him. Absol/Emp is a terrible deck.

    Sunday. I refine empoleon. take out the absol garbage and fine tune it. I go 2-0 taking a win over bobby malec(was only 4 points below me at start of the day). I look around and see a few no so good matchups and drop.

    30-5 at cities


    Week 4: I did not attend cities this weekend



    Week 5: This was the starting day for the "GA marathon of Cities". There were 4 Cities in a row this weekend, it was amazing. I started off Thursday playing G&G. I was 3-0 at the time, and I played bobby malec. Game was really close. I was ahead 1 prize left to his 2. Time get's called on his turn. he takes a prize, and then next turn I bring down for my last prize. Tournament ends with bobby and I. with the series tied 1-1 I took an early 4 prize lead. time was called with the prizes standing me having 1 left, him having 3 left He took a prize to make it 1-2, me being it up. I would not have won the game had it not gone to time, however I did not stall him out. 1 hour simply isn't enough time to play a best of 3 game.

    Friday: I decided to sit out friday We played football in the rain out in the field. I ruined a pair of pants, broke my pinky finger and Aaron spit on some womens van. Pretty uneventful. I guess you TN players can consider this one a gift from Steve Silvestro :thumb:

    Saturday: We get lost on the way to the event. But that was a good thing!!! It gave me time to build my deck for the day. I built Magmortar. OMG the deck is AMAZING. I end up going undefeating zinging gastrodon!

    Sunday: I didn't play sunday either. I came up here for 4 CCs, but only played 2!! I'm cool!


    Overall Cities Record: 44-5

    Congrats dude. Four CC's in a row is crazy, too bad you didn't get to play them all. And I agree, Magmortar is awesome. Too bad I never got to play it cause my brother hogs all my cards. : (

    I look forward to playing against you sometime soon.

    GJ on your tournaments dude.

    yea I agree... an hour isn't enough time to finish best 2/3 matches. it should be like an hour and 15 minutes IMO.

    over here in Colorado, at most of our cities they've given us 45 minutes to complete best 2/3 matches.
    its ridiculous.
    basicially if you lose the first game, it's over.... cause you barely have enough time to get through half of the 2nd game

    :pokeball:

    GJ Steve! Next year, there may be a few more TN players in the house at the GA Marathon. I understand they will try to set it up for maybe 5 CCs the week between Xmas and New Years. Y'all need to come back up next year!

    Say hey to your Dad for me!

    I wish I had gone to more cities, having a job sucks.

    GJ though.
     
  11. Will the TN players and the Florida players face off again in March for GA States?

    FL has won GA states for the past 4 years. If TN is smart they will stay contained to the MS/LA area

    If I wasnt helping out running TN states, I'd come down to GA just to defend our state from that reference! The other week I will be in NC helping Jeff run one of his states.

    I know FL players think they are unbeatable, and maybe you all will win GA states again, but dont go putting down a 3rd state to stake your claim in GA :wink:.

    Keith

    EDIT: GA states is on the 2nd weekend, meaning I will be working in NC w/ Jeff. You may see some TN players in GA, but not necessarily the best!
