Thread: Any former or current yugioh players that switched to playing UFS here?

  1. #1

    Question Any former or current yugioh players that switched to playing UFS here?

    Are any of you former yugioh players here that had transitioned to and moved onto UFS? If so, mind sharing with me about what your experiences with switching over to playing UFS is like, such as what you like and enjoy about it or did not like about it?

    Current yugioh players that play UFS are also fine if any of you want to share their experiences with me, maybe you can compare and explain more thoroughly between the state of both games, etc.

    I think I just would relate better to those that are former than current though. So can you honestly tell me what you think of UFS compared to yugioh then? I've personally had too many bad experiences with yugioh and had quit since sometimes back in 2007.

    When I first heard about UFS and since at that time I was still a yugioh player, I had always wanted to transition to and give UFS a chance and play it back then when Sabertooth games first made and introduced it.

    I even regretted all that money I had spent on yugioh and how things turned out with it. It's like if only I had seen this coming or knew about this.

    But I never got back to UFS unfortunately, mostly because of the region and location I live in appears to be a dead zone with a very limited to no market for any card games other than the same 3 common and popular card games, magic the gathering, pokemon and yugioh. If you're wondering I'm in the Boston, MA region or area, and if you're part of there you'd probably know for certain how UFS turned out in that region. I hardly even see stores carry anything for it other than just the starter decks for the game, but now I can't find it anywhere locally.

    I still have a Ryu starter deck from the time frame that Sabertooth Games first introduced this game, but that's about it. The fact that this card game survived this long despite despite the company that manages and owns the rights to it had changed on more than one occasion tells me that it's definitely something about it being still worth looking into and experiment with.

    For most part I have played many of the popular 2-D fighting games back in the day, from Street Fighter, Mortal Kombat, King Of Fighters, etc.

    Leaning towards more of a KOF fan and MK fan though.

    And as for being a KOF Fan, I've always been a fan of Kyo Kusanagi and Iori Yagami. But the one thing that always bugged me is that I had always waited on and hoped that there would eventually be UFS starter decks for those two characters, but it just never happened.

    I mean I saw something like that Ryu vs. Akuma Battle Pack so I figured that maybe and perhaps one day and eventually there would be a Kyo vs. Iori Battle Pack too. Guess there just isn't enough interest nor demand to justify making one then?

    I guess that's another reason I never got back to it, but I am still interested and it's a big exception, because after my bad experiences with yugioh I figured I'd avoid pretty much any money pits or money sinks forever and pretty much any kind of traditional card games such as "Collectible" or "Trading" Card Games are or would become that way.

    I've reassessed things and my situation and think that maybe it's best I'd consider more budget friendlier and casual friendlier alternatives like Living Card Games and/or Deck Building Games instead. But like I said, being a fan of many older popular fighting games and that I liked and enjoyed them I'm reconsidering and making UFS the only exception as it still has my attention.

    At this point I figured out the best possible approach and direction I want to move in and go forwards with UFS. Been thinking about assembling theme relevant and appropriate decks for any and all characters that had appeared in all of the Capcom and SNK versus fighting series of games that also had made an appearance and are playable in UFS.

    What I meant by theme relevant and appropriate is that for example, if I were to put together a Kyo Kusanagi deck, I'd only want to use cards designed for that character from it's respective universe's set of cards such as from the older KoF 2006 sets made by Sabertooth Games and the later KOFXIII sets made by Jasco Games. That way the attacks, foundations, assets, etc. cards in the deck are all from the KoF universe which the character, Not Kusanagi belongs too by default.

    I get that UFS allows for and is meant for mixing and matching cards from multiple sets which is all very wild and cool for customization deck building purposes, but I prefer to go in this direction as I'm more interested playing the game in this way. Part of it has to do with the fact that UFS competitive and organized play is rare and uncommon in my local area and region, so staying meta relevant and keeping up with the latest banlists, yadda, yadda, yadda, I've already been through all of that before with yugioh and had awful and bad experiences that I don't want to repeat that similar process all over again even though I actually never played in any actual organized play events or sanctioned and official tournaments held for that game.

    To me it's like getting my fix for another SNK and Capcom crossover game, and since Capcom vs. SNK simply never got a 3rd installment at this time and may never get another installment at all in the future. This could be the closest that I can ever come up with for that purpose.

    Any character that already have at least one pre-constructed deck for them and if they are in at least one Capcom and SNK crossover video game would then simply save me much troubles and time as I wouldn't have to try and search and track down every single card made and released for them.

    Such as Ryu and Ken are perfect examples, and they are present in all of the crossover series of games.

    They already have designated Street Fighter theme relevant and theme appropriate and designated cards from their previously released Starter Decks.

    If anybody is interested in helping me with this, then I'd really appreciate your input and advice, thanks.

    I'm mostly going to go for characters that are the most iconic and the most recognized, such as poster boys and poster girls iconic type of characters for those Capcom and SNK crossover games.

    Some characters such as Rugal, Yamazaki, Maki, Todoh and Eagle which all present in the Capcom vs. SNK 2 video game, however, they do not have any UFS cards made for them at all so I wouldn't look for what simply never happened nor existed in UFS.
