I’m a long time casual player from The Good Ol’ Beta Days but haven’t been brave enough to introduce myself until now. The Duelyst forum community has been the best gaming community I’ve ever been proud to be a part of, and I’m kicking myself for not doing this sooner.
My life is surrounded by games. I am a Test Lead in the gaming industry, GM a couple tabletop RPG campaigns (Shadowrun and Fragged Empire currently), host regular tabletop game nights, and play a plethora of Steam and Xbox One titles. What makes this all possible is the loving support of my wife and two kids who are all also into games.
I started my Duelyst career as a Vanar player. Newer players this calendar year have little idea of how difficult it was being a Vanar player pre-Chromatic Cold buff. And yet I—like many others—played Vanar as its card set had a unique and rewarding synergy and aesthetic.
After enjoying a dominating season of post-Chromatic Cold buff, I branched out to play Vetruvian during its many seasons of Scion’s Third Wish changes. Favorite moment by far was buffing Panndo with +3/+3 and Blast and subsequently winning.
Now I’m ribbon hunting. I’ve already acquired Vanar, Vetruvian, and Abyssian ribbons, and I’m currently working on Magmar. I’ll move on to Lyonar next before finishing with the easiest faction Songhai.
GLHF to all who run into me and keep making fantastic plays. Win or lose, it’s about what I learn from each game. Thank you all for being great teachers.
