Yo, I didn't reply until now, despite disagreeing with a lot that some people have said on this topic. But that bit at the end really ticked me off. The "little elite" are long term, dedicated collectors, a group of CHLIDREN who don't know each other, but from three or four years attending events have recognised each other and gotten friendly (usually still only socialise at events or online though.) Your boy beat me last year in the qfs for the sole reason that I forgot my team(I probably wouldn't have won the tournament anyway), hence why I was quite upset. He's quite good for his age, can't put that against him, but I wouldn't put him near your "elite" players, not even close. And wtf is that about cheating? The only "mate I had was my little bro and he'd played previously. If anything, Harry knew Jacks cards because the team was predictable or, although unlikely, saw the end of our match if his finished first. And I wouldn't be moaning about how "fair" it is. You're a grown man with platinum limited editions coming out your ear holes and the whole collection in double after a week's release.JackW wrote: The little 'Elite' even gang up and collude with each other...last year at the Chelsea Swap and Play Tour my boy beat one of the previous Masters in a Quarter Final match only for his mate to then pass on to his other mate who we had in the next round the details of all of the cards we had in our deck so he knew which cards to play and when
This is just one of so many things that Topps do wrong that alienate so many people against them...but don't get me started on that or I will be typing until Christmas!!

With Match Attax there are multiple ways of being successful, its just about how you play the cards against your opponent and recognising what they might have etc. and trying to think a few moves ahead. <br /><br />Regarding the tactic cards having 2 tactic cards makes games far closer believe it or not, its simply about how you use them and how you might counter the tactic cards your opponent may have. Only having 1 would more or less defeat the objective of them in the tournament game play, because most players would pick the Agent card to add £5m to the budget in order to have more of the better players. I am not saying that everyone could and it would be the only way to win, because its not and as I have stated above, there are multiple ways of winning, but it would just make teams more predictable, so easier for experienced players such as the Master to guess the opponents team, so by having two it makes it more difficult to guess what team your opponent has and which tactic cards they have and how they will use it. I do agree regarding this years away kit cards though, due to the ratings and value of those cards it means they aren't as useful as they were last year in game play, but they are a nice feature for the collection rather than from a game play perspective.<br /><br />Regarding the adults not being allowed to play rule, unfortunately that is poor communication from the staff at topps then, as here is a comment on their twitter account confirming that anyone of any age can challenged the master, that I saw they posted out a few weeks back:<br />S&P tournaments = U-14. Topps Festival= any age!<br />link to tweet: https://twitter.com/ToppsMatchAttax/sta ... 4762989568
Agreed. Injury and possession is the best thing going this year. By not using a hundred club, you don't need the agent and possession acts as a 101.FootballCardsExtravagansa wrote:The Worst Thing This Year Is Hundred Clubs Being Bigger Than Other Cards
If you read what was put in the first message I said that he was told what cards we had by the person who was overseeing the game for ToppsHarrick wrote:At Lakeside, Lewis said that the suggestion here was that he and Harry had cheated "passed a card" at the London event! What a load of bull, Harry works hard to get the very best match team he can have and to switch are card and still maybe add up to 100m in a tournament is ludicrous. No one, let alone Harry would even take the risk. And Harry is considered one of the best because he is good at it and was the Semi-Finalist at the World Championship, knocked out by Brindan who is the three time World Champion going on to win it. This is why he is so good and this is why Topps once again chose him as the MATCH ATTAX MASTER alongside Brindan at Lakeside yesterday, I'm proud of the boy!
