Hello. People commonly call me Dion, though I go by the alias Nightmare in some communities. I am a long-time player of TCGs. My involvement began with the Pokemon TCG a long, long time ago, which I played IRL (not like there was a way to play it online back then), but I moved on after a while. I began playing Yu-Gi-Oh when it came out in my country for a while, but eventually my interest faded out due to lack of a suitable community. For a few years I didn't bother much with TCGs, only playing a few online web-based ones.
Around four years ago I began playing Yu-Gi-Oh on-and-off again, only online though. The game just wouldn't hold me because I found it extremely imbalanced with a lot of serious flaws. My problem was solved when I began playing Cardfight!! Vanguard. I immediately picked up the game from the moment the first episode aired and started playing fervently online, also starting to play the game IRL when it came out.
I had stumbled across Battle Spirits before, during the short period of time when I played Duel Masters, but it never really caught my interest. Eventually, due to some disappointments regarding the direction CFV was taking, I started looking for something more to hook me. That's when I began watching the Battle Spirits anime, whose first season had previously thrown me off. I braved (sic) through the awkward parts, though, and did not regret it, to the point where I quickly watched the entirety of the anime, enjoying it greatly. Since then I started playing the TCG, and though it was a daunting task to catch up, especially due to the limited community, I believe I've managed to build up some skill and experience. Unfortunately the game isn't available at all here or anywhere outside Japan really, but I really appreciate the great job this wiki is doing at keeping things translated and up-to-date.
