City Championship Results Thread – Updated 11/29

We’ll be trying to keep track of as many Masters results as possible for this season’s City Championships.

Point Place, WI

1) Red (Blastoise/Keldeo)
2) Fez (Darkrai/Hydreigon)
3) Eric (Rayquaza/Eelektrik)
4) Kelso (Terrakion/Mewtwo/Garbodor)

    1. coolestman22

      I had no idea there was a place called “York”.

      You learn something new every day.

  4. Andrew Wamboldt

    Forget some people’s last names, but:

    1. Jak – Rayquaza/Eelektrik
    2. Brendan – Hydreigon/Darkrai with Cresselia tech
    3. Andrew W – Blastoise/Keldeo EX/Keldeo
    4. Michael C. – Blastoise/Keldeo EX/Kyurem

    St. Louis 11/7

    1. Vanguardmetrics

      YEAH Cresselia tech ftw!

      1. coolestman22

        I won a Cities in Seniors with a Cresselia tech. Won me Round 4.

        1. arTYYY


          1. coolestman22

            Still a legit example (Especially because 1/3 of the people there has cut Regionals)

          2. kazambolt

            cutting Regionals in Seniors =/= necessarily a legit example.

          3. Ambipoms

            Seniors don’t count, get over it.

          4. RogueChomp

            Amazing how you guys downgrade seniors so much. You know why Prior got T2 at Regionals? Cause he’s good, even though he just moved up to masters.
            Anyways, if Seniors payed attention to this data, it would probably hurt them lol since the Masters meta is different than the Seniors meta.

          5. coolestman22

            If you want a better example of that, Kian Amini won CA Regionals in Masters this year (T16 Seniors last year), and Jason Chin T4’d (Did not cut Seniors last year).

          6. Ziggmiceter

            Not really. There’s the occasional binder.dec but that’s really it. Maybe CA seniors are just good. Who knows.

          7. RogueChomp

            The Seniors meta can be different because there is a larger amount of masters, and there will never be one deck just sweeping. Well usually.

          8. Andrew Wamboldt

            The winning senior from our tournament played my Blastoise list. We both went x-0 in Swiss, and I finished 3rd and he got 1st. The difference between what decks are able to do well in Masters and Seniors really isn’t that different. The only difference is Seniors have more players with shaky lists, more players with just outright bad decks, and less overall in game skill because they’re less mentally developed than the older players.

            The only time this argument may have been true was last Cities Format and States Format, where Durant could be a great play in Masters, but a horrible play in Seniors because of all the Reshiboar in that age division.

          9. RogueChomp

            True @ first part.

            I think you mean Reshiphlosion. Because nobody would play Reshiboar after discovering how inconsistent it would be compared to decks like Zekeels.
