Earthenone: !secret
LRRbot: That's my secret, I'm always ashamed of my words and deeds.
DarkMorford: Big mood, LRRbot
benjamin_wheeler: Sure, I hate posting on twitter but my job benefits greatly from me doing so
FacelessManAboutTown: I didn't need to be personally attacked like that LRR bot
benjamin_wheeler: so I tweet out something that'll give me the highest engagement w/ lowest effort
FacelessManAboutTown: Fair enough
benjamin_wheeler: without being too corny or direct question engagement farming

Diabore: that is very anime
Datnade012: how anime is this game?
WiJohn: Are there deer in this game?
Datnade012: gasp
Juliamon: Datnade012 It has a literal anime
usualeel: Too anime
DrChillbrain: its called this because it was released for the nintendo 64 dd
SaxPython: FBtouchdown KomodoHype FBtouchdown
Datnade012: @Juliamon my god...
djalternative: just to be clear, Cardfight!! Vanguard is the actual card game. DD is just the edition we're playing this month
h3rsh3yb4r: Don't daze your deer, they're fragile creatures
Sibwow: this sure looks like a very totoro game
Ryxiene: Hello very anime guy
Ohpea: Secret Anime!
Jensling: But is it Shadowverse levels of anime?
Datnade012: you could be an annoying anime guy if you believe in yourself, wheeler
forcorus1: theres one charachter that is almost impossible to beat at the hardest difficulty
djalternative: oh god. this uses characters from the Dress one?!?! Oh no!
YeetTheRich_: let's just wait and see how hot the apocalypse is
FacelessManAboutTown: Got it, show no mercy
Spanked42: Maybe don't get so rough in the bedroom, geez
DeM0nFiRe: LUL
Haroldholmes25: LUL

h3rsh3yb4r: did mulder beat you up because you didn't give her wet food?
DrChillbrain: glitchless? cowardice
SnackPak_: welp
usualeel: The anime is on YouTube lol
djalternative: iirc most of Cardfight Vanguard's anime is available perfectly free on their youtube channel
WiJohn: This is immediately a lot
CururuGuasu: Is that collar riveted to her shoulders?
h3rsh3yb4r: HIS EYES
Datnade012: oh man, this is getting pretty anime
Quentastic: That head is too small
YeetTheRich_: are we student boy?
FacelessManAboutTown: Shouldn't Kathleen be here if you're going to play a crappy dating Sim? juzSmug
tehfewl: you know why
IndecisiveDauntless: they are charecter s
AntiSnowman: Men don't have eyes pnugNODDERS
CururuGuasu: Not enough eye budget for boys
Juliamon: Let's not make fun of the Student Boy's disability
MurphEP: Never pass, dunk it
djalternative: because boy student is exclusive to this and is completely usely
h3rsh3yb4r: that's what he needed help with wheeler
WiJohn: It was the only way to stop the male gaze
forcorus1: @LoadingReadyRun technically after the main story you can unlock upto 4 others to do story mode
djalternative: useless
Juliamon: he was born without eyes, very tragic
Jensling: Oh, I've seen enough... anime, to know what it means when a guy has no visible eyes TPFufun
HasturTheYellow: Boy Student doesn't have eyes because they're a Hentai Protag
forcorus1: there is some bad translation
yuan42: @Jensling cap22MonkaS
HasturTheYellow: The Real protagonist in this game
WiJohn: Ooh Joey Wheeler accent?

Jomby90: someone in this anime needs to sound like joey right?
YeetTheRich_: the eyes are DLC
Leedopo: OH. 80 CAN
DeM0nFiRe: Holy shit this is actually a $70 USD game AND you can pay real money to buy cards lol
Quentastic: The head detail does not fit the neck...
PhorrestGaze: but they are actually looking down all the time
MurphEP: Rasengan Ichidoji
usualeel: Cards are really easy to get in game
ComradeMik: a card fight?
usualeel: Never spend money on them
Haroldholmes25: no that's not how visual novels work
Ohpea: how is this going to tie into card fighting?
ComradeMik: why do they have matching chokers?
DarkMorford: A children's card game? Why, I never!
AntiSnowman: Well, some of them can't make EYE contact 👀
WiJohn: Are the matching chokers actually ports? Can they swap heads?
CururuGuasu: It’s a mutual fund
djalternative: mom puts chokers on her kids
Haroldholmes25: I don't think this is good sibling behavior
WiJohn: Maybe if you didn't suck so much they wouldn't pick on you
MurphEP: No lose
YeetTheRich_: ??
MurphEP: lrrWOW
AntiSnowman: Good dialogue Clap
Juliamon: it's anime, ergo Dead Parent(s)
Haroldholmes25: not the dead mom card :(
YeetTheRich_: what are these people talking about
ComradeMik: sigh, master thopterist
Simonark: Some things need a bit of swearing at.
ComradeMik: "our dead mother is disappointed in you" is not a fun goof
Ryxiene: LUL
AntiSnowman: Juliamon Or "Mom is always out partying or out of town for work" pnugNODDERS
MurphEP: You'd better not be playing those "children's cardgames"
Simonark: It depends. If the mother is actually still alive and in on the goof it’s got real scale and ambition.
Haroldholmes25: sorry yuki boy your deck is only pathetic cards
bainard656: Bering the shit out of people on rooftops, I thought we’d already established that.
CururuGuasu: “If you’re playing a card game, it better be on a motorcycle like civilized people!”
YeetTheRich_: FNCVDD
MurphEP: Oh no, he's a card gamer
h3rsh3yb4r: i can't believe that a 14 year old just said to a 12 year old 'i can respect a young man's privacy"
YeetTheRich_: friday night cardfight!! vanguard dear days
Ohpea: first dude with eyes
Haroldholmes25: LUL

ComradeMik: haha, no romantic partners in the game store
CururuGuasu: <Critical Hit>
tehfewl: called out
Nydestroyer: sent to the shadowrealm
djalternative: !venga
djalternative: Guard the VAN!
theamc2000: Rasen means wheel in Japanese (jk)
h3rsh3yb4r: if she's a model student she should know what a vanguard is
Simonark: Some vans need guarding, and these cards help us to do that!
Nydestroyer: and end of game
usualeel: He has the opposite of a girlfriend a card game
tehfewl: 5 dollrrs this is an isekai
cmdrud87: and kids, this is why we don't talk about MTG in fron of other people
MurphEP: Are we, as the card game players, under fire from the video game?
h3rsh3yb4r: oh it
AntiSnowman: Yes LUL
SnackPak_: it's not a phase
YeetTheRich_: we need to get our little brother off reddit
h3rsh3yb4r: it's actually wheeler
DrChillbrain: average magic twitter user

Nydestroyer: card shop apron
theamc2000: An apron
AntiSnowman: Card Smock
ComradeMik: an apron over a shit over a wetsuit
h3rsh3yb4r: wetsuit, windbreaker, apron
usualeel: card shop owners always have an apron
djalternative: a turtleneck?
Juliamon: Painted-on shirt
YeetTheRich_: he is the card shop chef obviously
Nydestroyer: hopefully this isnt a combo card shop butcher
Simonark: An anime man with blue hair? I don’t know what to say!
SnackPak_: skin tight turtleneck
AntiSnowman: He looks dapper
MurphEP: To protect his clothes from all the Big Gulps
themostjoast: love the morph suit underneath
djalternative: a too short turtleneck?
WiJohn: Cat suit
h3rsh3yb4r: chat it's the wetsuit
usualeel: He's cooking up some decklists
theamc2000: Clamp forgot to draw shirt, added line
h3rsh3yb4r: also wheeler i fuckin doubt that
Sibwow: thats for cooking
wednesdayb: black body paint, jacked, apron classic look
AntiSnowman: LUL
Spanked42: The wetsuit is cause he knows the effect he has on women
FadedOverseer: it's cuz the deals here are giving him the sweats
Nydestroyer: idk man when I was a teen I scrolled through a-z lists of anime randomly clicking series. Thats how I ended up watching Cheeky Angel
YeetTheRich_: does YJ not have a chef wearing a wetsuit?
ComradeMik: he's just wearing a full body choker
Juliamon: This fucker spilled his mini paints and is pretending he meant to do it

MurphEP: lrrSPOOP
usualeel: Local Girlfriend Store
ComradeMik: dude, she's in high school
cmdrud87: you're so dead
ComradeMik: cool your jets
AntiSnowman: @djalternative Genius PogChamp
theamc2000: Rasen gone!
Spritz_T: that's your answer for everything
theamc2000: Good sell seller
WiJohn: His body paint gives him superior bus-throwing-under abilities!
AntiSnowman: "Nothing will make you feel better than purchasing some of my merchandise!"
NarwhalsInATrenchcoat: @djalternative "I'm just going to pop into my girlfriend for a bit."
YeetTheRich_: "but i'm a GIRL, i can't play games!"
usualeel: He sees everyone as a ustomer
WiJohn: LGS man takes every chance
theamc2000: So if you spin a screw, do that wheel?
themostjoast: love a tutorial tbh
WiJohn: Wait did you change clothes?
DrChillbrain: dear god why is the music shredding this hard
djalternative: wait. Isn't Cardfight the one of the two Bushiroads where like Japan's top Idols were also massive Cardfight fans?
Simonark: It’s made of… stop me if this gets too technical… “Ca-rds”. You’re all caught up!
theamc2000: Cuz the. Rasen = Wheeler
h3rsh3yb4r: is this like commander?
Cptasparagus: if I wrote this game i'd have the cajones to name the main character Van Guard
Juliamon: So it's like... inverse Pokemon TCG?
theamc2000: Time to ride
usualeel: Command Zone
Simonark: I’d like it to be about all the bitter rivalries in the sprawling Van Guard family
Ranakel: The ride deck is funnier when pronounced with a thick new zealand accent
theamc2000: Trigger zone? Perfect for gamers
SnackPak_: I spaced out, can we go over that again?
Juliamon: EGG
tehfewl: where we droppin boys
MurphEP: ThankEgg
TheThirdTail: eg
AntiSnowman: ThankEgg
YeetTheRich_: this is where you put the trigger warnings for your hentai art cards

Ranakel: Powerful eg
Nydestroyer: ride that egg
iris_of_ether: foxmarEG
YeetTheRich_: hehe
Juliamon: Ride... the egg
DrChillbrain: "The egg that is full of hope."
Simonark: It’s called the “Seen It Heap”
djalternative: RIDE! THAT! EGG!
ComradeMik: oh god. i love riding units
MurphEP: Perfect keywording, no notes
FadedOverseer: ThankEgg
usualeel: Trigger zone is an apt name
DeM0nFiRe: "When this unit is rode upon" I'm sorry, what?
YeetTheRich_: they really tried to come up with distinct names huh
ComradeMik: growing together while we ride?
Masslost: riding the egg sounds like an interesting fetish
ComradeMik: hot
usualeel: Imagine getting sued by konami for using the word "graveyard"
MurphEP: "The egg is full of hope" lrrSHINE
DeM0nFiRe: The egg that is full of hope.
theamc2000: Ride the egg?
KeytarCat: When the unit is ridden* upon lrrBEEJ
MurphEP: How, Yuki?
Juliamon: gentle reminder to chat, please don't make 'trigger' jokes
thraximore: Thanks for having me, it's great to be here half an hour late
Juliamon: this game has no shortage of other things to mock
DeM0nFiRe: You're ride what now?
Simonark: This indicates whether the card seems like it’s a hugger. Also, the table is a circuit board.
WiJohn: Paper, this kid is always gonna pick rock
Haroldholmes25: good ole rock
tehfewl: Rock or coward
NarwhalsInATrenchcoat: windmill paper
Juliamon: two in the pink baby
Ranakel: Scissors OP
SnackPak_: dependable rock
cmdrud87: d6
ComradeMik: we're talking about riding creatures y'all. there is a thick vein of comedy right there.
YeetTheRich_: good old rock, nothing beats rock
MurphEP: lrrWOW
usualeel: always scissors
thraximore: @Juliamon umbral4KEKW
Sibwow: thats what mods are for
TemporallyAwry: !sir
LRRbot: Sir? Sir! That appears to be some sort of sidewalk slam.
h3rsh3yb4r: im gonna go to my LGS and when my op asks me "high roll?" i'm gonna say "nah bruh rock paper scissors"
thraximore: it came from the pink, hopefully
djalternative: go for the spock
YawnLance: Mod powers, heck yeah
MurphEP: Let's go
Juliamon: who gonna ban me huh
Anubis169: 👀
WiJohn: The dirtiest option is always the best
Simonark: Ok, but what are the blue and green if we all accept what the pink is?
YeetTheRich_: jesus
FadedOverseer: LOL
Nydestroyer: wow so anime
Juliamon: oh hi bis
djalternative: @Juliamon certainly not wheeler
YeetTheRich_: that is so BUSY
lesbianpunkpyromancer20: i hope that if you play against the same opponent more then once you learn what the lead with in rock paper scissors
Travilogue: *I* can't see what cards we have
Haroldholmes25: we can't see what's in our hand
frozenphoenix7: But can my opponent see why gamers love Cinnamon Toast Crunch?
Anubis169 huggles Julia
Anubis169: o hai :D
Anubis169: i just wrote about a thousand words for this uni paper in a couple of hours
Anubis169: lrrSPOOP brainfried
ogundiety: Wheeler- have you ever watched Randy Feltface? I -strongly- recommend if you're not famliar.
ComradeMik: this game is so excited about everything
YeetTheRich_: oh they did the yugioh thing where they just add 00 to every number
h3rsh3yb4r: is every creature legendary in this deck?
endstepexarch: @ogundiety He who buys bookshelves off of Gumtree?
forcorus1: this game is divied into rows and colums
Anubis169: <dragon> "I got balls of steel..."
cmdrud87: I mean, draw a card are words I know that are normally good
eshplode subscribed at Tier 1. They've subscribed for 42 months!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, eshplode! (Today's storm count: 14)
ogundiety: @endstepexarch Exactly. It's -precisely- Wheeler's shaggy dog humor
MurphEP: " 'pologies"
Juliamon: these are some YGO-ass names
Simonark: Dragritter, Zafar. Zagar, Dragritter
MurphEP: I don't wanna
Haroldholmes25: LUL
endstepexarch: I refuse
tehfewl: put them on bottom then shuffle?
djalternative: I won't
ComradeMik: holy shit
tehfewl: why put them on bottom
TheThirdTail: Doesn't work if you don't say it
Wodar9: That board is so hard to parse
Simonark: Go, Johnny, Go, Go, Go, Go!
Nydestroyer: I wish it was in the official rules
ComradeMik: this game is just so much
TheThirdTail: Game will just crash
Nydestroyer: like someone calls a judge
RunningMonkeys: I would do it once and never again
Sibwow: no they say "guard the van!"
FadedOverseer: they also stand up and salute as they say it
thraximore: IT'S TIME TO D-D-D-D-Dance
DrChillbrain: it's like let it rip in beyblade
KeytarCat: Bro is just being a donk LUL
DrChillbrain: you gotta
Ranakel: I don't know. Do people at least decide to play, immediately causing someone to rip sick guitar riffs?
FadedOverseer: more like the Stan State
AwesomeInABox: the untap step
usualeel: If you don't say "stand up, Vanguard" you instantly lose
thraximore: is this... chuuni?
Anubis169: x_x
SnackPak_: lrrFRUMP
endstepexarch: The what? Pardon me?>
h3rsh3yb4r: @Sibwow you joke but that's literally what vanguards do, as opposed to rearguards who guard the rear
YeetTheRich_: sure
YeetTheRich_: why not
ComradeMik: game. game please
Anubis169: Minds. Out of. The gutter...
DrChillbrain: learning a lot today
ogundiety: so, nc-17 game text?
Anubis169: Please.
MurphEP: I appreciate the commitment to the keyword
YeetTheRich_: @Anubis169 never
thraximore: @Sibwow why would anyone want to guard the rear
frozenphoenix7: @Anubis169 It's too late, I've moved in
djalternative: The idea is that you're piloting all of these Vanguards like mecha. Very fleshy mecha
endstepexarch: When you what from the who now?
h3rsh3yb4r: @Sibwow so you don't get attacked from the back while marching
Simonark: This feels like a set of badly translated stereo instructions.
Ranakel: Please, it's not dragrider, it's dragriter, which means dragrider, but in german
endstepexarch: Jesus christ, the game is still just Info Dumping 0_o
Kelderan: Call? What if I want to raise?
Anubis169: Ranakel: riter or reiter?
endstepexarch: WAYTOODANK
Juliamon: yeah this is... not a good tutorial
Haroldholmes25: excuse me that flavor text
Xx_JAG_xX: very stealthy
h3rsh3yb4r: omg stealth fiend is cute
YeetTheRich_: this card game wants us to use the keyboard??
eshplode: @djalternative Oooh. That's what that means
ComradeMik: at least it's infodumping about the card game
WiJohn: Those chest snow flakes are certainly a thing
Simonark: Before the entree of the game, how about a nice word salad?
MurphEP: Some of this is starting to make sense, yeah
theamc2000: Ride for battle
thraximore: @Sibwow but what if you're a bottom
endstepexarch: Why is the game board just... so much though?
YeetTheRich_: also it's not unnecessarily horny ... yet
Ranakel: Powerful
Juliamon: an skill
theamc2000: @thraximore all are power bottoms
forcorus1: BASEd
Haroldholmes25: LUL
ogundiety: Oh god, hte 'skill' pop up is just...a lot
thraximore: @theamc2000 LUL
KeytarCat: @endstepexarch It's bro's playmat, and he's a nerd
endstepexarch: Understandable
thraximore: Ben's been talking since I got here and I've heard none of it. Did I miss anything?
theamc2000: Is this game all banding the game?
djalternative: yeah. it's just enlist
thraximore: @theamc2000 👀
YeetTheRich_: this is how you know we are a top student
ComradeMik: that's too many zeroes. Eliminate 3. i am not a crackpot.
Juliamon: This is way too many terms to throw at once
MurphEP: Lots of unnecessary terms
YeetTheRich_: @ComradeMik they had to one-up yugioh
thraximore: but the terms all need to be bolded
cmdrud87: so, the combat is sirt of like Yugioh?
theamc2000: You can tell this game was made after mtg to entice kids. They have big numbers instead of 6 they have 6000
cmdrud87: *sort
Simonark: “Have you seen the film Drive?”
ogundiety: Seriously what is this game
djalternative: whiff on the drive check
thraximore: @theamc2000 ... in retrospect that makes a lot of sense
eshplode: They did a drive check last time I had my car in for service
djalternative: I'm very quickly remembering how Vanguard works
KeytarCat: Think they explain that "hit" is what they call it because it's a loan word for the original script language?
Ammondale: 10000? I thought they were 5000
forcorus1: this is the current "standard" @Ammondale
thraximore: :saluting:
Dog_of_Myth: o7
Ammondale: I see
forcorus1: they increased the power levels
theamc2000: @thraximore big numbers but under hundreds place is zeros
yuan42: elec what?
YeetTheRich_: ritter means knight in german ... so it's a knight in drag
theamc2000: How do you blow elec?
djalternative: iirc, grade 3 is where you really start playing the game. 0-2 are mostly for setup
theamc2000: I know they mean it as electric hit, but electric bj is funnier
ComradeMik: elecblow gives you a real jolt when you take a bump
forcorus1: soul are cards underneath your vanguard
forcorus1: soulblast or red text is a cost to activate the ability
thraximore: Dodge rolling is integral to Dark Souls
AngelicKnighthood: @djalternative Correct, and if you playing with the G decks, its when both players have G3's out.
theamc2000: What is this games’ deck size
redyounglink: the music and visual design of the menus reminds me of gamecube games like custom robo
AngelicKnighthood: 40 iirc.
theamc2000: Ty
gideon_not_graves: Oh hey I just started this.....and now I have a slightly cheaper alternative to paper Magic
gideon_not_graves: Critical
theamc2000: It is also full art anime cards
AngelicKnighthood: Whistles in the three decks I own.
Simonark: So the other side of himself Risen feels Vanguard unlocks in him turns out to be exposition, then.
MurphEP: This mechanic is kinda neat
theamc2000: Why does crit do two things?
gideon_not_graves: Something to always remember: Power doesn't dictate how much damage they take, "Critical" does
gideon_not_graves: Power dictates IF the attack hits
AngelicKnighthood: ^
gideon_not_graves: can't wait for wheeler's reaction to "over" though LUL
gideon_not_graves: yes
djalternative: correct
Ammondale: They have to have guard values, and the big ones don't
MurphEP: Stop
A_Dub888: !sir
LRRbot: Sir? Sir! This is a restricted area.
Dog_of_Myth: Phrasing
MurphEP: Rasen, stop
Haroldholmes25: you're supposed to block?!
gideon_not_graves: pitch cards for their "shield" value to block
theamc2000: Why do cards out of game start playing Fortnite?
thraximore: umbraS
gideon_not_graves: Don't sterilize my vanguard
gideon_not_graves: not like this
cmdrud87: don't forget to wash your hands, kids
theamc2000: Is sterilize angel his gf?
thraximore: I mean, they're not supposed to have biological sexes?
Ammondale: front trigger?!
Ranakel: Well I guess that vanguard is going to be deprived of microbes
AngelicKnighthood: That's new to me.
ComradeMik: front trigger. back trigger.
gideon_not_graves: that's a newer trigger
gideon_not_graves: there's no more "stand" trigger
gideon_not_graves: @LoadingReadyRun Any zone in your field that's not the vanguard is a "rear guard"
AngelicKnighthood: tbf, that;'s probably a good thing over all.
tehfewl: When is the Vibe Check?
theamc2000: I though they called those side guards ? Not rear guards in front row
Dog_of_Myth: wow
gideon_not_graves: the pronunciations help...
YeetTheRich_: oh come on
Ranakel: Oh no
WiJohn: Yep
DeM0nFiRe: Game please

YeetTheRich_: go on, ride the penetrating dino
AngelicKnighthood: Welcome to Cradfight.
SnackPak_: ride the penetrate dragon
ComradeMik: ride the penetrate dragon wheeler
theamc2000: The translation team is having the time of their lives
cmdrud87: and people say MTG got stupid names
Xx_JAG_xX: give'em the ol'TRIBASH!!!
Juliamon: You see, I was merely prepping you for the canonical content
Haroldholmes25: "fiercely cooperate" huh, yeah that's one way to describe what a penetrate dragon does
thraximore: who is responsible for these translations and where can I send them flowers
Ranakel: Penetrate their elecblow
Nydestroyer: thats a shitty way to teach people how to play a game LUL
Nydestroyer: "got ya"
Juliamon: this kid totally plays Diplomacy when he's not playing a card game
Ammondale: what's that second symbol tho
tehfewl: so double? Penetrate?
theamc2000: Persona ride?
YeetTheRich_: 'persona ride'??
Ammondale: wwwwwwwwwhat
MurphEP: Dump every single mechanic on them in the first game
djalternative: it's a spell
theamc2000: Spell and traps got it
gideon_not_graves: yep, a ride that benefits multiple copies of a unit
gideon_not_graves: -Persona Ride
thraximore: @MurphEP that way you won't miss any umbraSmile
theamc2000: I recall there being a fateseal deck in this game
MurphEP: @MurphEP Bless
Ammondale: bold of you to think there's a next turn anime girl
gideon_not_graves: Yuki is deffo a bro con
MurphEP: I do like card games that use the cards in your deck to represent game progress
abaoa_qu: Thunder Empress Arshes Nei?
gideon_not_graves: +10k penetration
MurphEP: Choose it, Wheeler
WiJohn: That dragon penetrates even harder now!
theamc2000: Penetrated dragon tri bashed
Ammondale: this game is gonna be perfect for the highlight reel honestly
gideon_not_graves: Perfect Block time
gideon_not_graves: 2 cards to perfect guard
theamc2000: Where is parry?
Nydestroyer: ah yes escort the penetrating dragon
YeetTheRich_: point of order, this is clearly a penetrating triceratops and not a dragon
MurphEP: Kid, stop making up rules
Gaz_L: good flavour text
Nydestroyer: keyword stickers
thraximore: WHEELER
gideon_not_graves: the C Blast on the penetrating dragon
WiJohn: There's a lot going on on those cards
thegitrogsquirrel: just got here what have i missed
gideon_not_graves: ^ trust me when I say...this is at least not as long as yugioh
AwesomeInABox: 5th not 5
Ammondale: you take the 5th damage, I think it means
A_Dub888: @thegitrogsquirrel Wheeler played a Penetrating Dragon
gideon_not_graves: More penetration
Nydestroyer: double dragon
frozenphoenix7: I am thou, thou art I
ComradeMik: double penetrate dragon
Quentastic: Wait, are we still in the tutorial?
MurphEP: I mean, our outfit's sick
gideon_not_graves: yes
theamc2000: Double penetrating
gideon_not_graves: tutorial
Quentastic: Oh god
WiJohn: You did change clothes! Does this card shop have a costume section?
thegitrogsquirrel: @a_dub888 i am up to speed. thank you
MurphEP: @WiJohn That's the power of Vanguard!!
Painfully_Dyslexic: this seems a touch silly
QuixoticScrivener: There sure are a lot of words...
gideon_not_graves: people who don't play, trust me when I say that this tutorial....ends even sillier
Juliamon: remember, !clip early and !clip often
theamc2000: Man, young bro gets beat at school and at home
Gaz_L: ok, where we droppin?
Eggmojii: Back when I was running the LGS, I had a deck for every game so I could fill in numbers at a tournament. Vanguard was the only game I feel I never fully grasped and now I see it's different again 💀
Rynehawk: oh is that all
Sethalidos: my eyes have crossed so hard I am now walleyed
melegaunt_: I'm trying to follow along with how this game works and I feel like I'm having a stroke.
Gaz_L: games like this honestly make me amazed MTG has turned out as comprehensible as it has
BrandunEminentOne: oh geez, these names are something else, to say the least, What is a dragritter!!!!????
chaostreader: I stopped paying close attention and am now lost. I’m sure it’ll make sense later.
themostjoast: this is a literal fever dream
gideon_not_graves: C-Blast: Turn damage card upside down. S-Blast - put a card below your VG into your drop zone @LoadingReadyRun
Eggmojii: I actually had 2 dfferent vanguard decks as I liked the game a lot but it's just so much
Ammondale: rock the dragon?
theamc2000: Can someone explain this game in magic terms
MurphEP: Thank god our character, who has never played the game before, understood the mechanics well enough to win
YeetTheRich_: is this what it feels like to get into yugioh?
gideon_not_graves: @theamc2000 I still do...
gideon_not_graves: but it's hard
melegaunt_: attack their vanguard with your uwu?
Nydestroyer: hard mode
cranman95: I got into Vanguard lately and it's problem is definitely just how many things have an incomprensible name
Gaz_L: @theamc2000 i think it's Yu-Gi-Oh but more complicated somehow?
theamc2000: Yugioh is combo decks
theamc2000: @gaz_l ty
Rynehawk: i mean looking at this for a few seconds it really explains itself
gideon_not_graves: this is simpler than it seems
cranman95: once you get used to all the weird words it isn't nearly as bad
gideon_not_graves: ^
melegaunt_: P-e-n-e-t-r-a-t-i-n-g Dragon?

Haroldholmes25: this nerd is gonna pull something huh

cranman95: that is a top tier translation moment
Carbondragon1: HyperHex
Sethalidos: anyone else smell burnt toast?
LordDrone00: nice trash talking from MC here LUL
MurphEP: "You've always sucked a lot. But when you play this card game, something's different."
gideon_not_graves: here we go
gideon_not_graves: time for broken stuff
Gaz_L: oh, ok, so is the trigger thing like the Transformers TCG where you flip cards from the top and they have symbols to tell you if you block?
gideon_not_graves: time to throw it all away
Ammondale: excuse me?!
YeetTheRich_: what the shit
Eggmojii: I knew it
thraximore: HUH
MurphEP: Bruh
gideon_not_graves: LEZ GOOO
DeM0nFiRe: lol
theamc2000: Bruh
cranman95: 100 million actually
Gaz_L: Exodia!
thraximore: cheater, unbelievable
YeetTheRich_: he is just making stuff up
DeM0nFiRe: 100 million lmao
Haroldholmes25: LUL
SnackPak_: lrrWOW
YeetTheRich_: we are playing calvinball
MurphEP: I told you - this kid stacked his deck
TheDrawingZero: Drive Check has the same power as “Vibe Check”
A_Dub888: benginWat
theamc2000: This game got a restricted list!
eshplode: That's a lotta power
gideon_not_graves: Calvinball at it again
Gaz_L: it's literally Exodia
betweenmyself: These numbers are just a *tad* dumb
TheThirdTail: i think you made that up... "this card just gives me, uhhhh, a bajillion power!!"
LordDrone00: +100 million!
niccus: can we have a card game that uses log scale
th3mpire: seems ok i guess
tehfewl: this kid is making this up
Eggmojii: Still just one damage
TheDrawingZero: WHAT
MurphEP: Skill diff
thraximore: @betweenmyself gotta appeal to the elementary school demo
eshplode: A million damage = one damage. Got it
theamc2000: Wow
ComradeMik: get out of here with this bullshit
gideon_not_graves: yep...
Juliamon: Great tutorial
CururuGuasu: We’re getting into Disgea numbers here
theamc2000: Game made you lose to some bw
cazuke101: WHAT BS
Juliamon: Cool game
Calaban161: Stupis scripted tutorial
Nydestroyer: lost in the tutorial. Maybe wheeler isnt that good at card games Kappa
SnackPak_: I shoulda let those bullies beat you up
MurphEP: I feel empty
YeetTheRich_: judge my opponent is making up numbers
thraximore: umbraHappy
AngelicKnighthood: This is so Cardfight it's great.
betweenmyself: Sadly you failed to draw your infinity plus one card
ComradeMik: go hungry shithead.
thraximore: I literally have no idea how any of this works
WiJohn: Gonna wedgie him in to the next school year
thraximore: and I don't particularly care?
Eggmojii: So that's one of the new triggers.... jfc
MurphEP: Mechanics seem cool once you cut through all the stuff
Gaz_L: this is funny because the YGO games usually have you play as Yugi so you're the one who draws Exodia and dunks on the OP
asthanius: Hellshake Yano?
gideon_not_graves: I think? maybe the V- series?
TheDrawingZero: I’m still caught up on the +100 million
TheDrawingZero: That was wild to come in on
cranman95: that sounds like a Vanguard card yeah
gideon_not_graves: there's also our avatar, blaster blade
Juliamon: Gaz_L MOST games do that, because you retain players by letting them experience the thrill of winning
Juliamon: This is... big "cool, Imma go play some Commander instead" energy
thraximore: umbraJAM
gideon_not_graves: I do love contractually obligated commercial breaks
thraximore: @Juliamon right?
Gaz_L: @Juliamon in fairness, Arena lets you lose to Nicol Bolas if you're really bad at the tutorial
MurphEP: Plus, we would have gotten to dunk on our brother so hard after beating him
cranman95: I have to say, this tutorial is much improved after what it started as
thraximore: @cranman95 oh dear
gideon_not_graves: days
thraximore: what was it like BEFORE
gideon_not_graves: :)
dominoman212: oooo wandering if this game is worth the $70
YeetTheRich_: wouldn't be ITYC if we didn't lose in the tutorial at some point wheelerKappa
cranman95: translations were super weird (read bad) and I feel like they didn't cover as many things
gideon_not_graves: next up is choosing wheeler's first a baby
cranman95: but I'm glad it's pretty decent now
betweenmyself: If you divided all the numbers by 1,000 the game would seem slightly more reasonable, although that would only reduce the 100 Million power boost to 100 Thousand, which still leaves you in dumb territory.
gideon_not_graves: yeah, but I guess they just wanted to throw the hail mary numbers
AngelicKnighthood: @Juliamon Losing the tutorial, (I'm guessing,) is a shoutout to the anime, where the protag gets he ass handed to him more often not.
cranman95: yeah it kinda shares the overly big numbers from yugioh, from what little I know about yugioh
Juliamon: Sure, but that's not how you onboard casual players who might have spent nearly $100 just to play this video game??
benjamin_wheeler: I believe these are the largest stat #'s we've seen in a game
AngelicKnighthood: You are correct there.
cranman95: ngl I was really hoping that battle would end with you getting a defensive over trigger on the last attack and winning
Ammondale: I mean I would *hope* 100 million is the biggest stat number in a card game
AngelicKnighthood: That I would agree with.
pipshardfour: Who from lrr is playing Monikers on AFK this week - anyone know?
MurphEP: These stat numbers should be displayed in scientific notation
Juliamon: I don't know if it's been mentioned
gideon_not_graves: losing in tcg's ain't fun...but I guess it's "yo this anime kid was a loser, but now she's penetrating the competition so hard" sort of thing
Juliamon: I remember some names but I don't remember which AFK they're for, the normal one or the #sponsored one
cranman95: I mean the overtrigger is essentially just you always win, the number is usually irrelevant
gideon_not_graves: basically...Japan
benjamin_wheeler: Kathleen, Serge, Jacob, Ben, Nelson and Ian
gideon_not_graves: @cranman95 and you can only get it "once"
Eggmojii: Unfortunately Wheeler, <Hellfire Seal Dragon, Blockade Inferno> will not be in this game. That card is only in Premium Format and I believe this game is Standard Format.
gideon_not_graves: 1 out of 50 cards

Aravion: cerdfight Verngerd
asthanius: No?
MurphEP: That's not true

FadedOverseer: thats literally just hobbies
TheDrawingZero: Magic: The Vanguard
Painfully_Dyslexic: I want Japanese curry now
thraximore: Vanguard: The Stand
gideon_not_graves: Magic: Vanguard Gathering
theamc2000: What type of curry is that?
MurphEP: I connect with these characters
butt_ghost: calling the boys at hello fresh
pipshardfour: Wheeler how do you say the word caramel?
cranman95: yeah Vanguard tends to say they're the best card game in the world in lore
betweenmyself: I’m beginning to suspect Rasen has some sophisticated cheating mechanism hidden within his stylish choker.
TheDrawingZero: The: Magic Vanguard
Juliamon: AceStrikeX Are you just spamming Vanguard streams? Because I have bad news for you
gideon_not_graves: remember, other TCG's don't exist in TCG animes
theinfernumflame: Pokemon-level writing here.
theamc2000: Rasen means helix. And helix spins. Like a wheel. So Rasen = Wheeler
AceStrikeX: i not spam
dominoman212: @gideon_not_graves ^ so trueeeee lol
AceStrikeX: im on switch now
MurphEP: She's in
gideon_not_graves: 0-skill LUL

dominoman212: it does look like zero though, i thought the same thing
Xx_JAG_xX: Dskill-NUTZ
DeM0nFiRe: "You learned nothing from this tutorial"
betweenmyself: Perhaps the font could use some work.
gideon_not_graves: but wheeler what is D-Skill?
TheDrawingZero: Oh that’s a lot of info
theamc2000: Illustration by a name in Japanese writing
MurphEP: Okay, yes. We've learned how to play, next we'll buy the best standard deck.
BrandunEminentOne: where are his eyes?
kurib: mirei is the easiest deck to learn
cranman95: I would recommend bastion, it's the easiest
gideon_not_graves: @benjamin_wheeler if you're completely comfortable with too many "new" mechanics not mentioned in the tutorial, DO NOT BUY the Yu-yu deck
theamc2000: Is one the fate seal deck?
gideon_not_graves: Bastion
betweenmyself: They gouged out the shop keep’s eyes to keep him from swiping all the good cards for himself. BibleThump
gideon_not_graves: @benjamin_wheeler the Red Deck (Bastion) is easy to pilot
WiJohn: Violence Bruce?
Ammondale: Oh that's the football player deck!
Ammondale: I recognize that mans
theamc2000: Violence Bruce
thraximore: not violent, Violence
Bionull: But it's not named Bruce
abaoa_qu: "Bad" Steve was in that last deck
cranman95: ok fair enough
gideon_not_graves: @benjamin_wheeler trust the heart of the cards
theamc2000: Cat jesus deck
MurphEP: Oooh, perfect card
LordZarano: I vote cat deck escher3MEOW
Ammondale: oh no, those look like cops
theamc2000: Anime police girls?
gideon_not_graves: so "Dragon" "Bruce" "Knight" "Furry" and "FLight attendant"..." and idol"

kurib: Mirei is easy to upgrade
Rynehawk: Bruce feels your scorn
butt_ghost: Lays(tm) maiden
gideon_not_graves: Idol school on top of a whale
gideon_not_graves: that's the 6th nation
Bionull: Apparently that archetype also has the card "Elite Miko Vtuber, Sakura Miko"
cranman95: ass tiss
Juliamon: It's real in that they used it
theamc2000: Ass tes ice
tehfewl: all words are made up
wednesdayb: diabolos plays "bad" Steve, sounds good

thraximore: I don't believe that kid has a medical license
YFiddler: that was great
gideon_not_graves: you pick your deck AFTER confirming
gideon_not_graves: it's weird, just say yes
MurphEP: We're so determined after losing to our loser brother
YeetTheRich_: vanguard, huh
gideon_not_graves: why don't they all have eyes?
Bionull: We're more
TheThirdTail: Only important people in Japan have eyes
Dog_of_Myth: Only main characters have eyes
gideon_not_graves: ^ or....y'know
Haroldholmes25: only enough eye budget for main characters
Karl256: @gideon_not_graves because eyes take to long to draw
gideon_not_graves: "Main Characters"
Juliamon: Oh no, card bullies, the bane of every Japanese tcg franchise
gideon_not_graves: in particular anime
thraximore: The way ol' Dicky G intended
ComradeMik: eyes are hard to draw
Haroldholmes25: so a normal teenager?
Bionull: Previously? Like when he was 8?

gideon_not_graves: iron anchor resentment
Ammondale: man, hammering it in there
Juliamon: Rasen, you deserve getting bullied
YeetTheRich_: don't agree to it if it isn't fair you little clown
betweenmyself: Hardly seems like a fair trade pennyWhat
asthanius: Oh my god
Bionull: Is mom dead?
asthanius: Our dead mother is inspiring us
RetroHibiscus: perfect music for this
thraximore: coerced 😔
gideon_not_graves: our mother is in the heart of the cards
Korolan: Show your brother how Not to be a little shit
MurphEP: He hates losing
Catastrophil: Sometimes my life feels like an Iron Anchor Resentment Dragon
gideon_not_graves: ok this kid needs to be bullied
Bionull: My child, use mermaid idol cards to protect the family honor
RetroHibiscus: good lesson on consent tbh
YeetTheRich_: we have played this game ONCE
Ammondale: oof
MurphEP: Is that a catchphrase?
thraximore: Yuki... Yugi... umbraHmm
YeetTheRich_: @thraximore wait hol up
cranman95: we got the dumb anime catchphrase now
gideon_not_graves: uuhhh...Dark's fine
Bionull: No, this is the hardest one
gideon_not_graves: ^
RetroHibiscus: is that gun?
MurphEP: I think you ride on your egg until you trigger 1million
MurphEP: But don't quote me
cranman95: ehhh it's like mid hard imo
Bionull: I actually have no idea
gideon_not_graves: Dark States have a lot of ":charge" and "blast" mechanics
gideon_not_graves: soo....yeah...kinda hard for beginners
Tempest2097: This is.... very fuckin complicated
thraximore: I choose you, Bad Steve!
gideon_not_graves: you discard, to ride
kurib: I probably going to drop that vanilla 10k
YeetTheRich_: don't worry, we'll only lose our entire deck if we lose
Bionull: All resources to Steve
dickyinthebox: You can just discard the Vanilla
gideon_not_graves: Press C to zoom in to the card
kurib: charge~
dickyinthebox: Soul Charg
A_Dub888: Hold up, these cards can reach into my soul?
gideon_not_graves: "Soul" is the card underneath the vanguard
Ammondale: soul charge is "put under the vanguard"
gideon_not_graves: "Soul CHarge" is put a card under your vanguard
mal_athoth: soul charge is put the top card of your deck under your vanguard
Slickdog1: Soul charge means to take the top card of your deck and put it under the Vanguard
Catastrophil: @A_Dub888 "Heart of the cards" is a literal mechanic apparently
gideon_not_graves: Matching the power hits
Bionull: So did he completely miss some tutorial or is this just impossible?
cranman95: the tutorial is just kinda bad
Juliamon: Bionull The tutorial threw out a million terms at once
gideon_not_graves: ^ no, he did the tutorial...its just....hard
Haroldholmes25: the tutorial was not the most helpful
wednesdayb: guss attacker wins the draw?
Juliamon: It was like if you decided teaching someone Magic but started with the stack
Ammondale: when it's from your ride deck, the guaranteed thing
Dog_of_Myth: LUL
RetroVirus047: A real dick rider, this guy
gideon_not_graves: your "ride" deck is a separate deck from the main deck. To ride, you discard as a cost
YeetTheRich_: ride the anger dick
kurib: so you draw a card
dickyinthebox: You draw and gain 1 soul
Ammondale: replace the weak thing, draw, stock up for later combos?
Slrarthryng: But what if I don't want a rear guard in my soul?
Bionull: Make a little birdhouse in your soul~
kurib: you are not grade 3 yet
gideon_not_graves: Persona ride works only on Grade 3
Ammondale: persona has to have the symbol, and has to be at max level?
dickyinthebox: Just SMOrc
gideon_not_graves: as a beginner, go wide is a fine strategy
gideon_not_graves: which is why the bastion deck is easier
dickyinthebox: It increases the power so harder to guard
mal_athoth: the bigger the attack the more resources you make your opponent use to defend
Slickdog1: Boosting makes it harder for your opponent to guard with weaker cards
kurib: grade 1 and 2 are 5k to guard, with booster, they would either need to ditch 3 rears to guard, or 1 trigger
Bionull: How much damage do we need?
gideon_not_graves: @Bionull 6 is the damage limit. Hit 6 and we're dead
kurib: charge
cranman95: 1 tip of Vanguard, ignore what your opponents cards do LOL
Twilight_Spark: I've just logged in and let me tell you this is the game.
gideon_not_graves: @Bionull Power doesn't dictate the amount of damage. It's dictates IF the attack hits
cranman95: feel free to read but don't mind it as a beginner
dickyinthebox: You can intercept
Virallurk: triggers do nothing in hand besides give you shield
gideon_not_graves: time for bruce
MurphEP: Bruce!
captain_wulf: Hello Bruce
Ammondale: back right
gideon_not_graves: you put it into the soul
dickyinthebox: He wakes up and he chooses Violence!
fakesolemn: your carrying vanguard community. this games steamcharts are lower than viewer count :S
Slickdog1: bottom right of your field is the one
lackingsanity: its the bottom right guy?
ComradeMik: he studied violence at the university of woollamalloo
Ammondale: back right rearguard is the one with the boost on bruce
cranman95: you did, but it's ok
ComradeMik: it's in your hand at the end
Virallurk: yout grade one cares about bruce
kurib: you can only persona on ride phase
gideon_not_graves: you can't ride twice
fakesolemn: he's only meant to ride for next turn
dickyinthebox: Save the G3 for next turn
Virallurk: save bruce
forcorus1: you restand all your units to attack again
kurib: not worth it
dickyinthebox: save Bruce definitely
forcorus1: if you ride bruce again you get final rush
kurib: you can call out steve to the back
GenesisJester: soul blast x means discard that many cards from under your vanguard to activate the effect
cranman95: don't play Bruce, but playing g1s is good
Ammondale: play the boosters
Slickdog1: When Bruce attacks you take 5 cards from under your Vanguard so your front row rear guards can attack again
Catastrophil: Briefly checking the rest of the streams of this game, I think what you're missing is a v-tuber avatar
kurib: just swing
kurib: no thats a grade 2
kurib: nooo
gideon_not_graves: oh no
dickyinthebox: G2 can't boost LUL
Ammondale: it is not
dickyinthebox: ops
gideon_not_graves: Boosters are Grade 0-1
dickyinthebox: PAIN
MurphEP: lrrSPOOP
MurphEP: Wild attack animation
fakesolemn: does everyone here play VG?
gideon_not_graves: heck no LUL
kurib: bruce is a turn 4 deck
Ammondale: final rush comes out next turn
Virallurk: final rush happens during ride phase
sgtsausageprty: i do and quite alot
Rurrythe_blind: I used to play before they rebooted the game
sgtsausageprty: dont need to use it
sgtsausageprty: looks like your still at the start
sgtsausageprty: they dont trigger that bunch in the start
dickyinthebox: Yeah at the beginning the matches are easy
kurib: persona time?
Ammondale: and you can persona ride
sgtsausageprty: ride bruce again
Virallurk: ride bruce
GenesisJester: rear
Ammondale: it boosts when it rear guards
sgtsausageprty: R= rear guard
kurib: Rear
Virallurk: yes
Slickdog1: yeah
dickyinthebox: You are still in Ride Phase btw
MurphEP: Okay single player game!
MurphEP: Beeeg
Virallurk: call over ice boy in the front
TheThirdTail: Yeah, this looks like big combo turn
Ammondale: you want to put it front
Virallurk: front row
Ammondale: it can't boost
kurib: you cant attack from the back
fakesolemn: 2 / 3 go to front
dickyinthebox: G3 isn't a booster
TheThirdTail: Perfect terminology
dickyinthebox: B E E G
fakesolemn: you'll want to attack R / R / VG / R / R
sgtsausageprty: R= Rear guard G= guard circle Sblast= soul blast Scharge means soul charge from deck Cblast =counterblast a damage zone card Ccharge= counter charge a flipped over damage card
Ammondale: so the super thing you get to do is attack twice with your side boys
cranman95: tip, attack with Bruce last
kurib: rear rear vanguard rear rear
Virallurk: attack with front row rears first without boost
sgtsausageprty: no
abaoa_qu: They are good at defense
Ammondale: lead with both sides
MurphEP: My front rear
sgtsausageprty: attack with your 2 rear guards and dont boost
Virallurk: no
kurib: no
kurib: rear first
dickyinthebox: Start with lower power
Slickdog1: rear guards first then Bruce
Virallurk: lead with the rears first
kurib: cuz bruce ability allow you to restand them
GenesisJester: no attack with the others first cause he'll let them untap and attack again
fakesolemn: R - R - VG - R - R
Catastrophil: Get in their face with your rear!
Virallurk: that symbol is the restand symbol
Virallurk: it means units can attack again
Ammondale: you get an extra attack phase if you do your special surprise
Twilight_Spark: That's a sex thing you can't pull one over on me.
Virallurk: swole soul
kurib: pick 5 cards
kurib: any 5 will do
kurib: yes
Ammondale: mhm
dickyinthebox: yea
Virallurk: yes
MurphEP: Oh I'm kinda into this okay
dickyinthebox: 5 attacks in a Turn deck

alexanderthefine: felt like I was looking at pachinko
Virallurk: still easier to read than yugioh lol
wednesdayb: i have no idea what happend, well played Wheeler
Rurrythe_blind: You meant Hyper-Dimensional Super Robo Guard, Mechto-Hector; King in the Sky isn't easy to remember?
kurib: when you get used to the game
kurib: it gets easier
dickyinthebox: Blessfuck LUL
kurib: the game is easier to learn but hard to master
Catastrophil: Which came first, these card names or isekai titles?
Twilight_Spark: smh these kids don't know about the heart of the cards.
natfletchy: Just got here. Are we on some anime bullshit?
MurphEP: Yes
MurphEP: Absolutely
Virallurk: vanguard is life. wars are stopped over cardfights!
Dredrik: this reeks of YuGiOh vibes
Twilight_Spark: I can't hear Yuki as anything other than Yugi.
betweenmyself: “I was never interested in what you are trying to do.” The deep LOOOOOOOORE riffScream
dickyinthebox: @Virallurk It even stops Alien Invasions
DEATHlikescats: Ooh tasty
Ammondale: He gave back the card, didn't he?
Catastrophil: I'm still not sold he did something wrong either...
Juliamon: You also already admitted he didn't do anything wrong
MurphEP: He has to apologize for winning a card game?
Twilight_Spark: Odd
YeetTheRich_: ??
betweenmyself: pennyWhat
MurphEP: You gotta take me to YJ
Twilight_Spark: It's my grandfather's card shop actually.
natfletchy: D skill acquired
natfletchy: lrrBEEJ
MurphEP: lrrSPOOP
asthanius: Ahhhh
betweenmyself: riffScream
MurphEP: Is it his son?
Catastrophil: What element of a card-store requires an apron?
Juliamon: oh, they did the Zetsubou Sensei thing
theamc2000: @catastrophil people
Catastrophil: @theamc2000 That's very valid
MurphEP: Can't wait for this guy's "I lost a card game and now I'm in shambles" backstory
MurphEP: No, fighting
MurphEP: Friday Night Paper FIGHT
Juliamon: Dude owns and runs a LGS, he doesn't have time for that
MurphEP: Long gone = walked away 20 minutes ago
betweenmyself: He retired after he accidentally killed a rookie in a card fight… so sad BibleThump
CururuGuasu: The awesome power of her starter deck
Catastrophil: I feel like I'm being hit over the head with anime
thraximore: lrrJUDGECALL
MurphEP: Huh?
sovietarchaeomancer: Huh???
SnackPak_: what
YeetTheRich_: lmao
thraximore: PrideLaugh
gualdhar: this game is out anime-ing anime
theamc2000: Game or cut scenes?
Catastrophil: In a world... where a card game has replaced both physical altercations and any form of decision making proccesses
MEATSHED: I would assume he is like a teenager.
Lithobraker: he just has a good skincare routine
dickyinthebox: Yes
maskeddudej: basically
cranman95: yeah
dickyinthebox: It's a Chimera
TheThirdTail: Jaboberus
TheThirdTail: I love them
YeetTheRich_: jambompoline
MurphEP: Uh huh
dickyinthebox: Usually because you need resources
cranman95: yeah it's good to take a bit of early damage usually
Slickdog1: some decks want to guard a lot early while others prefer to wait till later
MEATSHED: Every word the game uses sure is a word.
MurphEP: Guardian, I think
cranman95: when you defend with it
cranman95: guard circle
Rurrythe_blind: The cards are like that IRL.
Slickdog1: you can press C again to have the text appear on screen
dickyinthebox: Press C again to read the text
MurphEP: It's crazy that's there's no room to make the text bigger on these
chellyuzuriha: yupp
HypnoticMeerkat: Just came to say Vanguard is one of my favorite TCGs and I hope you're having a great time playing.
MurphEP: @HypnoticMeerkat There's a lot going on here, but it looks interesting!
Catastrophil: I like the visual of the board, with the designated slots and the PCB vibes
Jacona_: vanguard is basically resource management and gambling
Jacona_: LUL
HypnoticMeerkat: yeah I'm a huge fan of the anime and have been dabbling in the card game since about 2013
Slickdog1: Baromagnes can be pretty brutal if they have enough soul
KnightoftheRake: you can intercept from your front row
cranman95: Vanguard power is good because then it's harder for the opponent to attack
dickyinthebox: G2 can Intercept to add Guard value
KnightoftheRake: grade 2s can move from front row rear guard circles to guardian circle
KnightoftheRake: as if guarding from hand

Slickdog1: every grade 3 has a unique attack animation (the important ones at least)
th3mpire: you should do the thing that makes you win
aussie_rob_w: Is it good?
dickyinthebox: OH NO
KnightoftheRake: oh shit
cranman95: yeahhhhh that's the most painful thing in this game lol
dickyinthebox: Go Face I guess SMOrc
MurphEP: lrrFINE
aussie_rob_w: I remember picking up a starter deck for this years ago and thinking "oh neat" but never getting into it
KnightoftheRake: luckily you are still in final rush so your guys still get big
KnightoftheRake: or not?
aussie_rob_w: OH NO
dickyinthebox: @KnightoftheRake Those Golems are only on place
maskeddudej: card text is tricky
Slickdog1: some cards need to be in both final rush and have Bruce as the vanguard
aussie_rob_w: that seems convolute.
maxfury200: You
dickyinthebox: Intercept is for Rear Guard
KnightoftheRake: so if it was on the field in the front row, you could still guard with it
dickyinthebox: front row rear
maxfury200: Intercept can only happen if the grade 2 is on the board
KnightoftheRake: yes
maxfury200: Yes
dickyinthebox: Ride Bruce
theamc2000: I wonder if this a scripted loss
KnightoftheRake: but we cant final rush until next turn
dickyinthebox: @theamc2000 Nah, you can lose but this AI is easy
KnightoftheRake: since you werent on bruce at the start of ride phase
theamc2000: Ok
theamc2000: Like story wise have to join
KnightoftheRake: if you have 0 cards in deck you lose
Slickdog1: once all cards in the deck are gone and you resolve the current effect (if any) you instantly lose
MurphEP: FBtouchdown Gaming
theamc2000: Their hand got nothing
dickyinthebox: Generally you should attack with VG first so you can give power to Rear if you drive check a trigger @LoadingReadyRun
SK__Ren: no cards with shield?
theamc2000: Well not enough
Quarthian: Wait there's a CFV video game?
Twilight_Spark: Or it's just the difficulty level. Something similar happened the last time I thought.
dickyinthebox: yeah the untap skill is only on Turn 4 when you Final Rush
Twilight_Spark: The pyramid scheme begins
aussie_rob_w: It's so hard to do.
YeetTheRich_: speak for yourself, i'm gonna be a solitaire pro
Catastrophil: Yea, I blame the butt
theamc2000: Blame butt
DeM0nFiRe: $70USD game btw
