    Default TCG Battle Centre

    There is a sub-forum for Pokemon battles, but there doesn't seem to be one in the TCG sub-forum, so a sub-forum or thread for those of us who may want to play the TCG would be good (over webcam probably). Great if you live nowhere near a tournament, or want to make your own rules, use cards no longer legal, like Base Set or Imakuni? cards, etc.

    I'm not sure this would have the base that Wifi Battling has.

    seems rediculous if you ask me. And I doubt it would getmuch activity.
    if you want a TCG match, just go to a local league and play people.
    Find an official league in your using this:

    So I vote down on this idea.

    I wouldn't say that's a good reason to be voting down on this one. It's a good point that a lot of people simply don't have local leagues, especially people on here who are outside the US.

    so you can battle in other ways other than actual cards. Kinda like PO. Also, this will let people get more interested in it, since honestly I don't plan on buying 10 decks right now but if i played for a while online I may start collecting (probably not gonna happen since I already got rid of all the cards I had collected as a kid, but maybe for someone else).
    If we are having a battle and I disconnect, it is 100% unintentional; my power goes off often and each time my modem resets.

    Gone until Aug, 10 or something for a trip w/out net access. C u after that. If I suddenly dissapear after that you can bet I got bad grades on my IGCSE's, since results are coming out the week afterwards.

    Down. I don't think it will get a lot of activity.

    I've tried Redshark before, but it just isn't the same as having your own cards in front of you.

    seems rediculous if you ask me. And I doubt it would getmuch activity.

    Problem is not everywhere has a league, or many Pokemon players to populate one. And if there is one nearby, there is still the cost of getting there, being there at certain times and dates, etc. Not to mention the potentially embarrasing situation of more older players like myself losing to 6-10 year olds.

    If it's unlikely to get much activity, it doesnt have to be big, it could even just be a single thread in the Pokémon Trading Card Games bit.

    You could also say that we could use TPCi's official TCG game when it comes out? If that was the case and we just made a league out of it, then Up, otherwise no vote for now.

    Neither was Shoddy Battle in Gen IV, but its still more accessible than requiring every person who is interested to buy a web cam (on top of all those cards).

    Yeah I think most people would probably prefer using that, and it would be more accessible (the online game was actually the first time I'd played the TCG game in about 10 years), though are you able to play against other players? I would imagine due to the many rule changes over the years that the number of sets usable would be severly limited, so both ways playing could be covered.

    I'm just trying to figure out how this is gonna work, but people would mostly use TPCi's game. I'll vote when I get a sense of what this is going to evolve into.

    Yeah, the idea needs some work, also as I know very little about the TCG, I can't help you much. But we should at least wait until TPCi is fully done with the game/sim.

    Is there still interest in this? I'm not saying this will be approved, but I want to make sure this isn't an idea people don't want.

    I would use it if it were a sim, a la Redshark or the TPCi game. I'm sure others would as well if it is broadcast well enough.

    if you are proposing we create our own sim, that is out of the question. If you are proposing we set up a battle center using another sim, I can see that potentially happening with enough interest
