I Started playing Yu-Gi-Oh during the year 2003, during the year the anime first came out in Australia, also, due to peer pressure i bought my first pack of Yu-Gi-Oh cards from the Legend of Blue Eyes White Dragon booster pack. My first cards i got from that pack were Basic Insect, Spike Seadra, Dragon Capture Jar, Wasteland, Larvas, Dissolverock, Firegrass, Darkworld Thorns and Mammoth Graveyard. I really liked these cards and I've still got them today.When i went to school the next day, everyone pretty much had Counterfeit cards and no one would trade with me, because there fake Blue-Eyes White Dragon had 3000 ATK and can destroy everything. I really got angry, so i decided to buy a few Starter Decks, first starting off with the Starter Deck: Pegasus. And it owned everyone in the school. I was the best duelist in the school and I was the only one who had Toon World.
As you would do, i decided to buy more cards to build up my deck. I bought all the Starter Decks and then i bought the Blue-Eyes White Dragon Tin. With two Blue-Eyes White Dragon's in my 100 card Deck (lol). I just got better and better, and then came that dreadful day, when some punk stole me Hinotama Soul card. After that i gave up on dueling at school and just collected the cards. Of course, like all fads, the schools popularity of Yu-Gi-Oh dropped, and i kept it secret to myself that I still play and collect the cards. But after a while, i gave up on collecting cards and lost interest.
It wasn't until 2006 that i started up on Yu-Gi-Oh again. And this time I learnt to become a better player. By the middle of 2007, i found the site called the Yu-Gi-Oh Card Maker. From there, i learnt that 70 card decks were bad, especially when i started to play Yu-Gi-Oh! World Championship 2006 on my GBA. Ever since then, i have become a way better duelist than i ever was. By the time i started on the YCM forum, i gave up on card collecting and started to play online, due to me getting sick of getting bad cards when i buy a pack. To this date, I run many different types of Decks, yet try to keep up with the meta. I consider myself to be a good duelist, yet I believe i can be a better one. There is so much to learn about this game and im willing to learn them all.
