    People refuse to give Ohio any of the credit that it deserves. We have a lot of really good players in the state. I'd love to see some people try and make it in the great lakes region...and drown.

    1 Midwest (Ohio to Missouri, and up to Iowa)
    2 California (I guess you could include Oregon and Washington in this).
    3 Florida (GA, and the Carolinas)
    4 Texas (including Oklahoma)
    5 North East
    6 Great Lakes
    7 Everywhere else

    Midwest is the best.

    If anyone starts to turn this topic into "our area is the absolute best, your area stinks", it will be locked immediately and infraction points given.
    Fair warning.

    Great Lakes/Midwest has the most good players, but not as many players overall (at least per tournament.) Florida and the Northwest both have lots of players and a large amount of good players. Cali seems to have not as big turnouts or as many good players as it used to but still has a lot. Texas/South is also pretty strong in my view.
  11. During States I tried to get the top four average points to see if that could give some type of definition to an answer. Maybe you could do that for Regionals. Not that it means anything. Some players from Florida did go to another regional to play so that might throw off the results.

    During New England Regs. there was quite a few n00b decks in the Senior division. I like a little challenge not Charizard PK/Tyranitar ex FTW?

    I heard just recently that Cali isnt nearly as hard as it used to be, as some of the best players there are taking brakes or got banned or something.
    I believe that the highest ranked person there is around 30 points above everyone else?
    Although I could be wrong on all of this. lol

    Hardest State = Florida
    Hardest Area = either the Great Lakes, the Midwest, or the South.

    What is the point of this question. There is no better or worst area. All areas are different and it doesn't matter.

    Ness-world champion
    Seena-national champion
    Fulop-national champion

    I think if we look at the factors that might affect a community being competitive or not, I think the number 1 factor is population. Usually the bigger states have better competition because they have more players overall than other states. I think after that, it falls back on the quality of the organized play in those areas. I think it's obvious which areas have PTOs that go above and beyond to bring the absolute best tournaments to their areas, and I think that definitely promotes more competition. I mean no disrespect to any player or area from what I've said above. These are just observations.
