After thinking about this topic and debating it with others, I've decided to make a post which may cause backlash towards myself, though I risk this as i wish to find out if there were others that felt the same/agree with what im saying. At worlds, the judging was nothing short of superb. Rulings were close to perfect, if not so, and for this I want to shout out to a few judges that i felt made my experience (as always) incredible. These judges were 'Pop, Vince and BDS. Now, these were the only 3 that i came into direct contact with in my games, and i felt they showed all players a high level of respect if they were shown it themselves. I was polite to all staff, and was therefore treated with a high standard of respect/fairness. For any judges that I didn't meet one to one, or have forgotten to mention, I am sorry, its rude of me not too commend you all, but to be honest some just do not deserve it. Some were rude, and made pretty silly errors, which may have cost some players dearly. A UK player in the seniors category told me he has filed a complaint because a Judge told him he was not allowed to cut his opponents deck, his opponent proceeds to topdeck the gamewinning card lol. Now whos to say this wasn't because the judge simply did not know the rules, but this players father was adament the decision was made based on the american connection of his opp/judge. So, the main point of my thread is, has pokemon gotten to a point where a judge could be biased based on the country hes from. Can your judge be too 'patriotic?' An example of this would be, an american judge literally pumping his fist and shouting 'Yes! Atleast one Americans In' when jeremy won. In my opinion, its the players win first, and the countries second. I just wanted to know what everyone thought, if anyone else felt that they were treated unfairly, i know i wasn't, but after talking to a few players, i thought i'd post and see what kind of response i get. Thanks for a great worlds everyone, I just wanted to know if it was as fair for you as it was for me.
