Honestly, I miss Scubadude

Recommended Posts

He was pretty much the official photographer of UFS.

At conventions, he would always skip side events just to take pictures of the players.

 

Anybody else want the vacant job? Pictures of events are mad good for memories.

I also miss ex-STG staff member George Hancock. He took my picture 4 times at Worlds 2007. 3 of em made it online :)

I'm sure other people would:

1) Take pictures instead of Scuba
2) Disagree with you about Scuba

Not that I personally had much beef with him, I remember when I was there the last time (wanting PotM badly before rotation was even announced), people would trade with ME because I was the only one with money cards that Scuba wanted, so that I could trade my money cards with Scuba's cards that everyone else needed.  It's a shame, really, how a player forces others to go elsewhere for cards instead of trading with them.

How's that Hades Destroyer working out for you, Tag? ;)

Then there's the whole "we will help pay for the trip" thing, but I could maybe chalk it up to a misunderstanding (I ended up paying for all THREE of us to go, including food and travel by train, draining my savings basically).

So what you're saying is that he can be replaced with just about anyone with a digital camera?

Aslum did a heck of a job of taking photos at worlds this year.

Please keep Scuba as far away from this game as possible. He was single handedly responsible for killing UFS in his playgroup.

When Vik returned to the boards he actually apologized to everyone for introducing Scuba to the game. If Vik apologized, that says something. It really does.

I could go on... but I'll simply point to ShadowDragon's response above, and leave it there.

Yeah, trading with Scuba sucked pretty hard 100% of the time.

Pretty good, also.  I've been meaning to re-visit the big guy for some time, just unsure as to how I want to do it.

Count me among the few that never had a personal issue with him.  I didn't care for the stories I heard about him, but I only judge people based on my personal interactions with them.  I don't have any proof of him ever doing wrong by me, so as with everyone I meet, I treated him with the same amount of respect he showed me.

To be honest I can think of several current players I like less than Scuba, but that's neither here nor there.

Playgroup is still struggling.  People just don't have money to buy new cards for the new format, and one of the last few holdouts from the Scuba era finally quit, as well as another one being sick (and ending up in the hospital) and thus unable to play for the last month.

Fort Myers is hanging by a thread, more or less.  The "playgroup" is mostly relegated to just J and Vik, with occasional other people.

I had no issues with the guy. Honestly I'm going to be the stick in the mud here and say it's prob not really approprate to bash him in a forum like this, especally since he distanced himself from this game some time ago. It's not as if he was some scammer or a real jerk, some people just though him a pain in the ass.

I'm not going to post anything re: my opinion of Scuba.

These types of threads are a black mark on our community and shouldn't be started or contributed to further in any respect. That is my only opinion I want to share in this thread.

Does taking playsets of the reprinted cards out of prize support for himself before distributing any of them count?  How about keeping 12 copies of PotM for himself and even giving people who earned 8+ patches only two of them each, and not even giving two people their PotMs after the event?

 

edit: For the record, me and my then-"teammate" Jon (quit playing because block 3 got too boring + couldn't stand Scuba anymore) earned 12 of the 13 patches (neither of us could make it to the last event), a few of them in multiples, and got 2 PotMs total.

Now I know why you guys only had like 2 each when I traded with you all.

He also sort of cheated a member of my playgroup in the top 8 of a regionals.  Vitality miscounts FTFail.

Actually I'm glad he left, he was kinda creepy always hitting on people like Dani((dont know if i spelled that right sorry))and my sister. Now some one I do miss is Scott Gaines he quit the game and turned to magic.

Chris yeah good riddence, he picked on too many people as it is and gave Dani fits, he needs to stay as FAR away from this game as possible... yeah he's good for a laugh every once in a while... but he's downright obnoxious.

as for Scott, yeah i knew that a long time ago, sad really i've tried to talk him into geting back into the game but he said iirc "Until Hata allows us to playtest against Legacy, this game will not grow" i'm paraphrasing that, he also thinks the game is unballanced... bleh... seeing as i only play Block3 extended i wouldnt know.

from the looks of the trade forums there are several people selling their entire collections...even though i sold all of mine i will still hang around the forums once in a while, UFS still has the best community in any card game ever,

For what it's worth I'll be happy to give anyone else who wants to post UFS pictures a gallery. And yeah, I'll be sure to take lots of pictures at any future big events I attend.

As far as Scuba's concerned, I'll refrain from comment.
