I know peoples opinions on what needs to be changed has been said many times. Its just a matter of trying to get the "tradition" mindset changed. The community has grown so much this past year and needs to be less exclusive and more inclusive. The availabilty of cards to new people is becoming less and less every year thus not allowing people to build outside of one format. Perhaps after gencon start a thread keeping a cool head and let the community tell you guys what will bring them in.

Please don't hijack the thread, it's about the results of GenCon. If you want to 'voice opinions', put it in Rants instead.

Thank you for your cooperation.

I wanted to take this time to say some things. This will be a long post. After 11 years there's been build up. I've been playing this game 11 years like I said. It all started one Friday after a Yu-Gi-Oh tournament. I'd become bored with the game and wanted a new challenge. I was pitched to play WWE Raw Deal. Being a massive wrestling fan I jumped on in. From there I've made countless memories, life long friends and to a degree family. However, I promised myself if this day ever came I wanted to thank everyone who was there for me. So here it goes.


Tony Vela: You have been a constant cornerstone to this game. You go out of your way each year to help us. I know it doesn't go smooth all the time. You still find a way to pull the rabbit out of your hat. We don't deserve it. Thank you sir for everything you've given us. I've always enjoyed seeing what you come up with for us.


Creed: I've been lucky enough to see the non Raw Deal side of you. We've disagreed on a few card ideas haha. However, you've always given me sound life advice & are truly a good person. I've enjoyed all of our conversations and can't thank you enough for the advice and guidance.


Big Pimpn: 5 years ago I came back into this game and sent you a deck list of does this work. It was absolutely horrible, however you took the time to write me a step by step guide to this game and how to build decks. By the way he sent a novel.  You didn't have to help me at all. I am beyond grateful for every deck advice I got from you. It helped me grow as a player. More games need someone like you to help build their game.


Drew: I love you to death you know this. You stomped me stupid in my first top cut. It opened my eyes on how to get better. You've been an amazing teacher and an even better friend. You're another one I feel every game needs to help it grow. You're not the D-bag some may think you are, haha.


Mitch: You're the smartest deck builder this game has EVER seen. You are a tier above all others. I'd have to write a novel on everything I learned from you. When I thought something was good, you'd point out X kills this. Piece of advice to all players, find this man and ask his advice! It's been an honor and privilege to learn from you over these last few years.


Mackie: Without a doubt one of the workhorses of this game! You are I feel so under appreciated in things you do. You're a very intelligent player. We talk almost every day in our chat. You're a tremendous person.


Softcore Legend: One of the guys I look forward to seeing every year at Con. Another highly intelligent man in this game. We had an absolute classic a few years ago in the top cut. One of the most down to earth people you'll wanna meet.


John P: Brother, You taught me soooooo much about this game. You taught me how to win. I've had a very rough year going into Gen Con. I got divorced, my step dad was diagnosed with Cancer. You were always there for me to talk with. We've talked years worth of deck ideas haha. You're one of my closest friends. Some may find you cocky and arrogant haha. There are more sides of John P. I can't tell you how much it meant to play you in the finals. We'd talked about it for years. It was an absolute honor to play you in the finals.

GreatWhiteDope: Corey, we haven't talked in a while. It would be a crime if I didn't thank you for helping me get started in this game. I legitimately wouldn't be here without you. Thank you man!

Steve Resk: One of my closest friends. You were always pitching me ideas. You even took time today to calm me down before the finals. You deserve every bit of success from SRG. You're an amazing person and friend. Thank you for the multi hr phone calls we had talking Raw Deal and what to work on with my ideas.

To everyone else I may forgot. I don't mean to skip anyone. 11 years is a long time. I spent many years being so close to being a World Champion. So many ideas I felt were good enough that failed. It feels so good to be on top on the mountain. Just thank you to everyone that helps this game and that took the time to help me. I love this game and can't wait to defend my World Championship!

Congratulations Rated SRH! Carry the torch loud and proud!

Also, thank you to the entire RDPC and the players for keeping the tradition of this awesome game going. (TEN YEARS NOW - with no signs of stopping!)

I haven't been able to make it to GenCon for a few years now, but I did get to hang out with Evil Dave and some other former Raw Dealers yesterday in Columbus, OH. I'll be attending GenCon for sure next year, and I hope to run in to all of you there!

So you were out in my area while I was out in Indy?
Next time you're headed that way, let me know so I can see if I can finally play your MMA game.


On a side note, it was a long time coming for Scott H, but he finally took that last step and won the whole thing.

Also, let us not forget that Almos made top 4 and he should get recognized as well.

Joker using triple Andre and still got to top 4 as well, good on you.

Finally, John P came so close to being a 3-time, but also going the distance in Supershow.


Overall, even with fewer numbers, we all learned some things and the people who are playing are still loyal.
