Today is the 27th as of 27/04/2018 and I live in Ireland so it’s GMT +0. This day not only marks the anniversary of Duelyst’s full release but also the 14th anniversary of my birth.
I have never done an actual introduction topic for myself I kinda was just here one day
and scared @galaxydueler most of you should recognise me as I’m probably the most prolific Vanar main on the forums and the most frequent poster but for those of you who don’t, welcome back or welcome to the forums!
Duelyst holds a special place in my heart as I was introduced to this game because of my fav (poketuber)youtuber at the time who was named Foofootoo, I have played and built skill in card games since I was 8 or so and I always loved games.with boards (I.E I LOVE chess). It is also a game which I have sunk thousands if not tens of thousands hours into it, I even have an account that is well over 2 years old.
I also happen to really love consistentcy in cardgames and the replace mechanic adds to that, I truly feel like this is what makes Duelyst what it is.
It maybe hard to tell but I was actually once a Magmar main and hated Vanar but after taking Vanar to SRank I slowly started to love the faction, I love everything about it, the fact that it takes from Celtic mythology, the control playstyle, the faction mechanics and even little things like the aspect spells fitting with how I was named.
I’m the third child of two architects who live in Cork but where born in Limerick and London respectively, I have one brother and one sister, we were all named after something in Irish and I was named after Tuan Mac Cairill who is a shapeshifter in Irish mythology. It wasn’t even my parents who named me but instead my grandad and as Tuan Mac Cairill was a shapeshifter transform mechanics has always resonated with me.
I can’t seem to fit these into their own paragraphs amd have the whole thing feel fluid and I.have already been at this for half.an hour so I’m gonna leave some common questions here, feel free to ask me more questions!
What genres of music do I like?: I found loud music hard to listen to as they hurt my ears so I listen to mostly jazz, celtic and classical, although I may listen to louder genres (I.E I’m starting to like nightcore)
What do I want to do in the future?: As my parents amd my grandad where all architects I feel like it’s only natural for me to follow that path, not to mention that I really like it.
My favourite factions in order?: Vanar > Vetruvian > Magmar > Abyssian > Songhai > Lyonar, I like all of them this is just in the order of how much I like to play them.
My other hobbies?: Currently I’m doing running in and out of school (maybe in the future I get to run marathons with my farther), I’m really into photography and I plan on taking classes this also gives me a niche which isn’t common for architects, if it’s Eternal to Yugioh I would probably like the card game, I actually find swimming the most enjoyable sport but I don’t want to get competitive with it and I also love chess as it’s really balanced.
Sorry if this is too long but feel free to use this thread as a Q&A for me and even a venue to celebrate the full release of duelyst.
