Hey Everybody

This is just a question that came up with me recently and i was wondering what everyone else thought. i was wondering which you prefer more, a casual league or hardcore tournements. i like league, its laid back and fun, you can talk and enjoy yourself, it's all informal. but there's something about a tournement, the competition, that feeling when the scores come up, when u shuffle your opponet's deck and wonder..."what's he got up his sleeve?" its the rush. so which do you guys deem better, league or tournements?

There's no league around here, so I'm stuck with tourneys, which is fine by me. I much prefer that style of play to the randomness of a league setting. Also, I find that big tourneys are more laid back than you'd like to believe.

My player base in general prefers league.

A tournament is way better hands down. There always seems to be, at least for me anyways a better sence of pride after a tournament whether win or lose. For me it's usually win. haha

Well us Gym Leaders/Tournament Organizers/Professors must listen to what our player bases want. Because my player base prefers league play, I started sanctioning less tournaments at our league location.

I perfer league play. I'm not a die-hard player, and only play the game to have fun. I find at there are still compeititve values at a league, now that there are prizes for the person with the most points at the end of each week. Promo packs are a nice incentive aswell. I couldn't see myself having tournaments every week. Too mind straining.

I like leagues better

Hmm.... I love tourney play, because of the competition... I beat everyone at my league usually anyway lol... I tweak my decks for the purpose of being best. Promo packs would be better if we could get more than 2 a season =/

Legue for testing out new deck ideas.

Tournaments for winning prizes, meeting new people, and just having fun.
