Nationals - the aftermath

by Volvoxx On July 9, 2009 4:42 PM
Overall, I enjoyed myself there...but some assholes...I tell you....isk. Really makes me think if that's the reason girls dun like playing at such competitive level.

As expected, I was the only girl playing that day. There was another girl who qualified I think...but didn't take part. Hmmm...

I played 6 rounds in day 1, 1 round I got off bye (meaning there's no opponent cuz odd number bla so basically...I get to lepak while others are playing)...and practically crashed thru all of them...HAHA! ALMOST!! (but no I'm not dead last...wakakaka)... Blame me lazy not wanting to play a more efficient decks and insufficient practice at timed drafts. I felt the first 3 games of constructed, I've played the best I could but yeah....lack of practice...but yeah.

Enough gibberish that most readers here wouldn't understand.

What ticks me off is how this ass reacts to a mistake I made (my bad, but judges came and sorted it all out and I was given a warning...so fine!) and made a huge deal out of it, accusing me of qualifying for Nationals illegally...saying that QJ somehow cheated me in etc...to the point he went to confront QJ about this whole thing. Reason why he's so worked up? Because I'm the 75th person to qualify (last on the particular category to qualify) and his friend is #76 and he didn't qualify. Well...I'm sorry but don't push other's failures to blame ppl's success! Too bad la! The playgroup in Melaka is small so its no surprise that I can do better than the newer players here! Also...WHY BLAME ME ALONE? What bout those who've easily qualified higher on the list and chose not to play? That one lagi waste of space rite??? If I had qualified illegally, I don't think I'll dare show my face to play in Nats, you dumbass...what more with so little practice I had. Also...I'm not used playing in such a competitive level where some players (like you) are all dead shitty serious, no chats, and 'bitchy pissy faced' like someone stepped on your tail this morning...your attitude during gameplay with me...was like I owed you money and refuse to give it back. Gee...IT'S A GAME...we're supposed to be enjoying ourselves, eventho money is at stake.

You accuse me of cheating my way in because of my bad plays. Let me ask you this: IF I was a GUY...and IF I had played JUST as badly...or even worse...WOULD YOU HAVE QUESTIONED MY ELIGIBILITY OF QUALIFICATION??? No rite? You'll just brush me off as another lousy player yay too bad for you tehee lucky me.....it wouldn't even tick you off that I was number 75 to qualify and that your friend can't qualify...nevermind that it's only your friend's fault to not have qualified. GENDER DISCRIMINATION arse. And you 'pros' wonder why your girlfriends (I doubt you have one tho) all duwan play Magic...or refuse to play at this competitive level...If I see lansi ppl like dat all the time I oso duwan play la.

Thank God there's only 1 of you. At least I'm LUCKY to have ONLY met one of your kind.

Out of 6 games I played, 5 of them were really nice ppl. Especially my first few opponants, Peter and Ian. I really enjoyed playing with you guys :D (Peter asked me how I did thruout the day...which was really nice of him)...

QJ of course, fared much better than I did...hehe...9th out of 84 players in Malaysian Nationals 2009, you really made me proud. Its not Top 8, but its still an improvement from last year...and of course having people actually recognizing your work at MagicMalaysia.net, makes me even prouder and happier (eventho you dun really see it as much as I do :P)



Congratulations to Joe Soh on grabbing the top spot...you played really really well.

What did I get out of Nats? A very nice T-Shirt and bunch of random cards (most which I threw to Jia Yung cuz his friend wanted it :P )

Shud I try to qualify next year... /shrug...We'll see :P

  1. kiddokun Said,

    Congrats really to QJ. Although its a shame that he was about 1% closer to number 8, its still something to be in the top 8 imo.

    As for you, hehe you kan play for fun only mah. XD But glad to hear that you had a great time, except for that 1 person who well ticked you off.

     

  2. Volvoxx Said,

    Correction**: It's still something to be top 9...he didn't manage to top 8...

    but FYI, in Magic...its a big deal to be in the top-8...esp the prizes...the difference between number 8 and 9 is huge >.<
