TPCi Reveals 2025 Season to Limit Worlds Invites, Only 125 TCG Masters for North America

I love Pokémon so much, but I also can’t seem to rack up enough points. I go to three events every week, and I only got points for the first times I went to them. And one I didn’t even GET POINTS! (And yea it was an official tournament)
 
Same here, getting to old for this shit but wanted to make one last run since I can afford to travel to a few events next year to try to get those points for an invite but now I see literally 0 reason to invest my time and money into something I have absolutely no chance of getting. The only thing I will add to the list of things they took from us is expanded. Now if this was 125 invites for standard and say another 75 or so for expanded then I would say that could have at least made this not as big of a blow.
and yet evidently not old enough to know how to edit your post if you want to add more to it instead of replying three times in a row just because you're frustrated about something.

Yeah I’m doing this on mobile. Considering the frequency I post on here it absolutely isn’t worth my time to figure out how to reply to multiple posts on here at once. If your so butt hurt by that feel free to cry about it to Pokemon since they clearly will care about it as much as they care about out opinion about this issue
 
standard is absolutely not a rich man’s game. have you seen how much the top decks cost ? please stop being dramatic
Geez man, i know pokemon its the cheaper card game in standard format, but card game in general still overall a expensive hobbie, especially playing standard format competitively, since besides traveling to play major and premiere events, the format is so fluid that you almost need to buy a new deck at every three months. I know lots of friends (working people) that simply can't withstand the game's costs..

Is not even true. You need multiple decks at the same time because meta evolves every week, you can't get by with just 1 if you are taking the game seriously.

So, while your assessment is true, my point is that in reality, is even worse.

You don't really need to, just be a bit smart and analyse the meta when buying a deck, and when you believe it starts being less useful sell it and with the same money buy another one. If the new deck is a bit more expensive you can just buy it selling your prizes from previous events (don't need to get big prizes to do so, even whatever you get from boosterpacks in a league or playmats from a League Cup add up money if you sell all of it and save it).

traveling frequently to partake in anything is an expensive hobby. i don’t understand the point you guys are trying to make. standard format by itself, just playing in local tournaments and having fun is very cheap and you really don’t need many decks like you guys are claiming. i have one deck and have fun every week.

Yeah, right. Locally it can be pretty cheap, of course if you want to travel it gets expensive.

What I really don't like about these new changes is that they kind of force you to only travel.
