Nope. PVP will be off. Just your average hardcore game. After we're done with this hardcore map, I'll put up my regular server again for another few days and then we'll do Ultra Hardcore with PVP and teams on another map.
Speaking of which, would you like to be whitelisted on my regular server?
Most staple cards do not cost very much, with the exception of Hypnotoxic Laser ($6) and Pokemon Catcher ($15+). Pokemon-EX, though, may cost a lot (most of the playable ones hover around $20 each, though that number is reduced considerably if they had a tin reprint).
