VIP

Postby Sim » Fri Apr 23, 2004 7:44 am

Well this morning while I was getting in a couple games before the kid woke up I pulled a VIP card. So now all I have to do is find people to take with me to this card auction.

Jae you know you are invited ... so get your butt onto EP 3 some time.

So Jae did some explaining also. So you go in with three friends and you all compete? If you just need bodies, I'll tag along and probably pass on cards so you can win them cheaply, unless I see something I'd really dig. But let me know, my license expires in a week. And if you can get three people that would actually try for the cards, they should get priority over me, obviously :)

Only problem with that Popn is that you probably compete over cards which you cannot trade

In PSO 3 you cant trade S or SS cards... so the cards up for auction might be those.

Of course, thats all conjecture

I think that you are the first person on the board to get this Sim... did you get the VIP card during a battle against another human opponent, or the computer? That way I know where to look.

Well, I'm not talking about trading. I mean, I'd be willing to go in there and essentially not compete, so Sim and anyone else could get more cards cheaper. If Sim takes in three people like me, he can essentially get every card for one point, assuming it works the way I think it does. That backfires if there's more cards than points, though.

A few quick things before I am gone again.

1) I got the card in the finals vs a human I won and a barta turned into it.

2) Popn & Phat you guys are both more then welcome to come find out what this all means. I would rather take you 2 and Jae then anyone else.

Just drop a note here or PM me and we can try and set up a time soon to try this out :)

Suck it, Munkiman.

And Sim, I'm diggidy-down. Later times work better for me, but I'm on the east coast. Planning times and stuff is tough with the three hour difference, but I have some flexible hours.

Hey Sim, thanks for the invite

Of course, those of us without a keyboard are going to have a hell of a time communicating during an auction :) ... so I figure Ill just take my bidding cues from you (i.e. "I want this" or "I dont want this") and then bid 0 or whatever.

I think this is going to be more about seeing what the hell an auction is about, so I dont have any expectations of actually walking away from this with any cards unless there is something that you just plain dont want.

Anyway... timing.

I, like Popn, am better with night runs. Anything after 6pm during the week (with prior notification so I dont schedule something over it) is good for me. Weekends are also good anytime other than Sunday after 4pm.

Since its your card, I can maneuver around your sched.

Ok guys lets try and do this soon so Popn can make it before his HL is gone.

As for bidding I don't even know what there is going to be that I want. So I guess we will all be playing it by ear. And I don't want anyone to be thinking that just becuase I found the VIP card that I should get all the "good" cards.

So when is a really good time either today or tomorrow that we can try and do this?

My schedules for both days are flexible. Tomorrow I can go at it pretty much anytime after 5pm EST. Today, I guess really any time is good, I don't have plans outside of homework.

Part of the reason I'll be passing on good cards is because I simply don't play that much anymore. I won't renew my HL unless I end up building some sweet decks offline that I wanna test against a person. While I definetely love collecting the cards, I think you guys would get more actual mileage out of the cards than I would.

I also don't have a keyboard, though, so I'll be taking cues with P.S. He and I can communicate through a series of numbers.

Who what? Tomorrow is better for me. I won't be on much today since I had a week off the other week and am still trying to catch up at work. Hence, I took my work home with me this weekend. :?

I think tomorrow would work better for me too.

I have to leave at 4pm today, and that only gives me a couple hours leeway

So, either sometime in the next hour, or tomorrow after 5pm.

But , Im not sure if this could be organized within an hour, since it sounds like others are busy.

Im on pacific time

So thats 2 hours behind you... which means that Ill be ok to go on at about 8pm your time Sim.

Is that plausible? Since I dont get off work until 5 (7 your time) I dont think I could be on any earlier... but I can be on later if thats better for you guys.

Time shouldn't be an issue for me at all. You're all on the good side of the country, so when I'm done with classes it'll only be 2pm there. And I don't have class until mid afternoon on Tuesday, so I can stay up late. Just keep me posted.

Anyone else see that P.S has 666 bling? Creepy.

Ok then I tomorrow it is. We can nail down a time with Jae later since I know he is going to be the hard one to pin down. I mean I heck he always wants to be on top.

And yes 666 bling is creepy

Any time between 6pm - 12am tomorrow is fine. That's 8pm - 2am CST and 9pm - 3am EST for the timezone impaired.

Sim... I don't know what to say man. Your last statement reeks of homosexual overtones that I didn't know you were capable of. Have you been talking to PopnFresh lately or something? :lol:
