Hey every one and welcome back to the blues effect.  I would like to inform you all that the battle in the apple in nyc was a huge success. I was very proud to see that the Vs system community was in full force supporting this event. For those of you who couldn’t make, I have promised you a tournament report and you all shall have it. My write up of the modern event of the battle in the apple can found here at vssystem.org, the new mothership for vssystem.

The modern event wasn’t the only tournament to take at this venue. There was also a silver event that was played right after the modern. You can find the tournament report for the silver event written by Rob HERE, which is also on vssystem.org.

If you’re not really into tournament reports, how about some video coverage of the event.  Alex (0range_soda_man) posted some youtube videos from his recordings of the battle in the apple over at his blog, vsunleashed. Be sure to check it out, it’s a fun watch with a few laughs.

Well, that is all for this installment of the blue effect

Until next time,

– I will have an official judge on site and I will be walking around if anyone needs help.
– If someone is caught cheating they will be immediately discharged from the tournament and they will not be refunded their entrance fee.

EDIT: DUE TO POPULAR DEMAND, A HOUSE RULE WAS PASS THAT BLINK<> EARTH 295, CLARICE FERGUSON WILL BE BANNED FOR THE SILVER AGE EVENT. BLINK WILL STILL BE LEGAL FOR THE MODERN AGE EVENT. PRIZES HAVE ALSO BEEN UPDATED TO WHERE EVERYONE IN THE MODERN AGE TOP 8 WILL RECEIVE A COVETED PLAYMAT. ALSO THE TOP FINISHER IN THE SILVER AGE TOURNAMENT WILL RECEIVE A PLAYMAT AS WELL!

Hopefully i”ll see you VS fanatics there! If you plan on attending please post in the thread ny modern & silver age tournament , so that the organizers can have a proper head count. Also, Just a reminder that modern age consists of the last 4 release sets (marvel legends, dc legends, marvel universe, marvel evolution) and silver age consists of the last 8 sets (hearlds of galactus, legion of superheroes, marvel team-up, worlds finest, marvel legends, dc legends, marvel universe, marvel evolution).

Its nice to see that chance and crew have decided to make two tournaments instead of one to cater to the players that dont want to play against a potential field full of exiles. Good show to them for hearing out peoples complaints. I for one will be there for the modern event with exiles in tow and hopefully i”ll playin the silver given time.

Given time and help from the other writters on the blues effect you can get an insight on some competitive decks for each format and other deck testing possibilities for the tournament.

i just cant wait! So who is going!!!

well thats all for this installment of the blues effect

until next time
