    Public Service Announcement: Don't Be A Dick!

    So, on my way to my latest tournament win I ran into a bunch of dickish behaviors. Some examples:

    1. Pumping up a Mesmerized (and exhausted and useless) Living Totem repeatedly, presumably just to waste my clock in the third match
    2. Using Runic Monolith 2 turns in a row even after I'd pointed out that it was bugged and that that would be exploiting
    3. Casting Inquisition on a 1 resource hand and letting 45 seconds tick off MY clock while you decide which card to discard. Pro tip - you weren't looking at ANY cards = no decision.

    Don't be a dick!

    And, if you're really need to be, I'm probably not the best target.

    The first two could be lack of comprehension (using benefit of the doubt), but the last point has been specifically mentioned repeatedly as a known and bannable abuse.

    I hope you didn't take it easy on him Colin, because that warrants a report.

    I don't agree with #1. There are ways it could still be useful (getting readied by an external effect, or bounced and replayed). Even if he didn't have any, he doesn't have to let you know that. So continuing to pump it was the correct play, and not a dickmove.

    Colin, I really thought you out of all people, would never let the games design and bugs get to you.

    I'd pointed the second one out in chat and he definitely saw it (he responded).

    I didn't. I played my games and won. Just reminding folks.

    I'll give you that there could have been an edge case where it was useful. But I'd seen most of his deck over 3 games and he'd used the only card that would have helped (Buccaneer). He was still doing it with no cards in hand and guaranteed lethal damage next turn.

    I know you made a joke with your last statement, but if people really need to be a dick, they should bugger off and do something else.

    Yeah, I've definitely lost 3-5 games against people using the monolith even after they acknowledged in chat that it should currently be exhausted... Sad times.

    One of the things I've learned from many years of TCG experience is the importance of repetition of good habits. If you don't do something because it probably doesn't matter this time, you're more likely to forget to do it when it does matter.

    i'd rather lost than to exploit a bug knowing it exist. at least we only have 2 to 3 days to wait until bugs like this are fixed
