Yugioh Ethics? Scaling, Searching,molesting?


Hey whats happening bloggers.

Yeah Its been awhile since my last post.

No I am not watching porn everyday but I am actually doing research and analysis on a particular deck for the first time in my life.

But before I post about any deck, Lets have a small talks about Yugioh ethics first.

I was randomly chatting with Rauzes , and I forgot how did we jump into this unethical issue...and then he suggested me to make a post about it.

Warning This post might offend others, please view this in a peaceful mindset, and take what is written maturely and revise what the author had mention...

So what is ethics?

I assume that everyone know that is something related about moral...

There are some previous post about some ethical issue I was aware of and posted on the previous post.( Which is related to beginners and little children scamming and insulting your opponent and etc...)

And some other minor unethical issue such as cheating to win and so on ...but who cares...it aint that big of deal anyway...

What is really unethical and bring harms to the yugioh society which I am gonna emphasize here today is...

Searching(in the Japanese Term), Scaling, Molesting packs( My term) ,Super Ultra special technique to get the foils out of the pack ( the general term)

*I am being a hypocrite since some times I searches too... Guilty....

You: Lam How could this bring harm to the society??? It let you get foil in a price of a pack...and you might cut down cost in building a deck, you might even regain your profit.

*For the convenience of this post lets call the one who searches Chikan

Well it brings no harm to the Chikan, since he had paid for it and got what he wanted.

However this will causes a great damage to the Yugioh Society for a few various reasons...

How would searching bring harm to the Yugioh Societyの1

Heart Breaking...

Given a situation, when TDGS is out.... Yusei wants to buy the pack to get his number 'N" stardust... He gladly went to the shop and asked for the duelist genesis packs... Since Yusei doesnt know how to search and wanted the stardust desperately, he took 10 packs together and paid 1500 yen for it...

When he opens the pack, he got 1 red dragon archfiend , 1 bolt hedgehog , 1 big piece golem and rest of the craps that are not even expensive. Yusei was quite happy with it since he know that the ratio of getting a super rare and above is 6:30 ( For OCG...TCG I dont know bout the ratio...sorry)

Then here comes a random Chikan and walks to the shop and asked for the same TDGS box... He then perform his super molestation technique and took out 4 packs of TDGS...
Yusei was thinking wtf is this guy doing and waited him to pay and open up his pack.

When the Chikan opens up the pack, Yusei had the greatest impact of his life when he saw what the Chikan gets in his only 4 packs... A holographic Stardust, A ultimate rare Mental Sphere and Ultra Rare Goyou Guardian, and some random crappy super rare from the set.

Imagine You are Yusei and this is what you encountered.... Could you still smile after seeing what you saw?

It will definately create some unacceptable feeling for Yusei and it might even lead Yusei to quit Yugioh... I Dont Know... I am just Saying....

Out of Business?? Or stop selling Yugioh

Given a situation where Crow opens up his very own Yugioh Store...

Everytime he opens a new set, A few Random Chikan will be the first customers that visit him...

This will create 2 situation for Crow...

Situation A
For every box open, only 6 pack would be sold due to all of its customers are Chikan (Some Chikan only buy the packs if its a Super Rare or Ultra Rare)

Situation B
Innocent people will go to Crow's shop and buy lots of packs and get no super rares nor Ultra rares... For the first time... people might think it is their luck... But what if its the 2nd or the 3rd time and same thing happen to those people? They might just boycott that place because they think Crow's store have some bad luck force implied or etc

End up,
Crow might stop selling Yugioh since its unprofitable and start selling some MOE figure instead since its unsearchable and highly demanded from the Otaku society...

Frustration

As related to the second one, newbies might get frustrated and will just stop buying packs... In the end...you guys can just imagine what will happen...

Card Quality Damage

In a situation when a newbie sees the process of some Chikan searching...

The Newbie will do as what the Chikan will do, but they are doing it the wrong way..

Instead of ******* the pack ( Cant mention or not it will increase the number of Chikans), they crumble the pack to search for foil and its not even the correct way of doing it....

Then the other guy who comes to buy the pack, will find damage on the cards from the pack he bought and he couldnt blame or claim anyone from it since he is the one oppening the packs...

How would searching bring harm to the Yugioh Societyの5

Violence might occur on the spot...

Given another situation, Where Jack Atlas walks into a card shop and find some people molesting the packs. Jack Atlas knows that this act is highly unethical and walked up into those Chikans and quoted : Stop searching it is unethical!!, Those Chikan was pissed and start yelling at Jack Atlas saying that this is none of his business... No need explanation I think you guys would figure out what might happen at the end.... Since Jack Atlas is the Legend unchoosable character of King of Fight*er

Unfairness to some of the card sellers...

Kiryu had just recovered from his emoness and wanted to earned back the money he wasted on creating satisfaction town... He then plans to sell some of his foils to gain some fast cash... Kiryu is a duelist that doesnt know how to search, therefore the budget for getting a foil is higher than Chikans. Price Kiryu offer is always higher than the Chikans due to the high cost of Kiryu getting a foil than the Chikans. As a consumer we will definitely go for what is offered by the Chikan and not Kiryu...

This will cause Kiryu to sell off satisfaction town to gained some money and turn him back to an emo again...

So people, I do hope you could reconsider in what I am emphasizing today, and maybe you could actually suggested a situation and how would it effect the yugioh society?

P/s:I am the biggest searcher itself until I understand it is unethical to do it... So yea... still preventing myself for not searching... will try my best to stop...

Thanks for reading this post,

This is Yugioh Community, I am [HD]Lam approving this message...

Till then people, take care

We make certain choices because there is a "payoff" or reward for them. What are rewards that you found in scaling? Was it quick money in selling cards? Was it the feeling of perfection or luck for getting all holos?

It's easier to break the habit if you can find some better way to get the same or similar reward. I admire people who find creative ways to safely make money.

I like holographic art, but I don't like every holographic card. Not every holo has real value, so I tell myself that the benefit of scaling is too small for all the effort.

If it's a concern for a manufacturer, they could try purposely making lots of undesirable cards holofoils to "foil" the scalers (oh, wait, Konami already produces lots of horrible holos). Some cards with higher use can be made as Normal Rares, except they are made at a very low frequency (so they are pulled as often as a Secret Rare, but they do not have holofoil art). There was a time that "Smashing Ground" was $20 US. It was a common, but it was very hard to get and had a lot of demand.
