はい! パイナップルです!

Seems like I have been neglecting my posting duties lately :P I have been getting back into my groove as a seiyuu fan, so please pardon the lack of posts (as always). I foresee more time being opened up for me in the future, so please hold on for all your PreMemo goodness. I do have a lot of posts I want to put up but always get distracted by new seiyuu releases  (#/。\#)

Anyway, to the main topic; The SG PreMemo League officially kicks off this Saturday with the Starter Deck (SD) Commemorative Release Tournament, Block A!

Why open the League with a SD Tourney, I hear you asking. Well, like I have mentioned on FB, it is to test players’ skill to work with what they have, instead of what they bought. It’s the most basic of decks out there and good training for making decisions when you don’t have an ideal hand. Of course some SDs are better than others, but other than that it’s mostly down to raw skill.

The ability to anticipate your Opponent’s moves is also a HUGE advantage the hardworking players are going to have going into the tournament. That’s because everyone is using a fixed structured deck, and you know exactly what are the key cards in his/her deck, what pumps there are, and even how many quantities of each card are included. Yes, this means that you can calculate out your Opponent’s strategies and moves.

To reduce the power disparity between the different series (as with any other card game, a power creep exists as more sets are released), the series will be split into 3 different Blocks; A, B and C. These Blocks indicate the different era and timelines of PreMemo history, and therefore are most alike to each other in terms of strength. To celebrate the start of our League, we will of course go with the first 5 series that laid the foundation for future successes!

It’s your choice who to bring to the ball~

Here are the details for the tournament;

Venue: Rapid Culture @ Funan DigitaLife Mall #05-18

I’ll be judging this Saturday again as with all other PreMemo tournaments, so I hope to see you guys there! As always, if you’re interested in taking a look around and perhaps learning how to play, do ask for a tutorial from any player before or after the tournament. I’m pretty sure they’ll direct you to me ^_^

Until next time, Good Night, and Good Luck.

A BIG thank you to those who came down to make the tournament last week such a smashing success! Our tournament actually exceeded our initial expectations and drew a full 16 man participation strength. Unfortunately I didn’t get to sit down much with the players and exchange more Deck pointers, but I do hope to see the same people and even more coming in the future! Event report will be out as soon as I receive the photos from the organizers, Rapidculture XD

What’s next, I hear you asking. Well, to better prepare our players for the upcoming Singapore PreMemo League, we will be pushing out more tutorials and tournaments to better induct more players into the community.

And just like how Homura set out to defeat Walpurgis Night by herself, we will training YOU to take down fiercer opponents! And what better way to do so than to polish your skills in a tournament? That’s right, it’s PreMemo’s very own Walpurgis Night crisis!

And as it was decreed, bring your shoujos, and they shall together fight the greatest evil

I’ve safely arrived back in Singapore! PreMemo FESTA 2011 WINTER was a blast, and I really enjoyed myself a lot. 2 days of immersing myself in the midst of Precious Memories fans is to be treasured, as Singapore doesn’t give me that option and they eluded me even when shopping around Akihabara, Ikebukuro and Nakano. That’s why I took part in the Gunslinger Tournament, a continuous series of PreMemo matches until you either don’t feel like playing anymore or the time limit is up. The following is the battle report, while the full event report will soon follow. Hope you have as much fun reading as I have playing! (●´∀`●)

Sorry I haven’t been posting much lately (2 weeks to be exact). My health hasn’t exactly been the best lately ;_;

To celebrate the official release of Bakemonogatari SP, here are the translations for the Booster set and the SP! Thanks once again to Turtle for his V1 of the Booster translations.

Bakemonogatari recently took 3rd place at Niigata Region PreMemo Nationwide Tournament, Single Format. In addition, Hitagi Beatdown was the champion of the Mixed Format. Just for your information~

Whose chocolate are YOU after?

First off, I apologize for the lack of updates recently. There are loads of events spiraling out of my control and I had no choice but to take a break from the site. I actually have the OreImo Title Cup and August Monthly report right in my Drafts folder, so just hold on a little bit longer for that post ><

Now that the explanations are out of the way, let’s get down to what’s happening in the PreMemo world recently! A string of exciting announcements are await you, so hold on tight to your seats!
