Finally Rampage 2014 has announced their event date in their main page some days ago (was waiting for the whole year for the date). Will be competing in this event and we got 2 months left to prepare. Hope to finish the costume with skit in time as we also need to prepare our flight and a place to stay near the event preferably. Have to juggle this with other commissions as well (some Riot employees wants to have some armor made either for kids or for themselves /wink wink). It would be cool to win as the prize is huge and would pretty much cover up the things we spend for the cosplay, trip and stay. I'm sure we'll have a blast at the event meeting other LoL players we qued before and yet haven't met in person. So, cheers to that
So my friends have been into playing card fight Vanguard, a good number in the cosplay community here. It got me curious and being a gamer at card games (Mtg in particular) I decided to delve into the game and hope to learn the game and its inner mechanic. I can say its a fun game, really different from Magic the gathering, the games are fast-paced and the cards are sorta pricey too. Pricey because a lot of cards are staples in decks, especially on which archetype and the clan you play.
At present it has 24 Clans to play from and each have their own strengths at winning. Of them that caught my interest is.... the Bermuda Triangle. Yeah I know, that clan is full moe and lolis everywhere. But the more I play it the more I come to appreciate the technicalities behind the cards. They do lots of tricks, card drawing and bouncing which are the same things I like to do in magic (blue player here). My first deck is still incomplete, 17 cards short so I used some "fillers" for now. Took it to play with some friends and it was fun. The game has a good mix of skill and luck, improves your resource management and forecasting abilities.
I hope to get the missing cards soon then be able to play during my down time and the chance to just chill with the buddies.
