Kevin Hor made very quiet news when he left Team Comic Odyssey a few months ago. I noticed something was up when he didn’t attend New Jersey. I asked around and eventually found out that he had parted ways with CO as a matter of mutual agreement. “Things just didn’t quite work out,” said a representative of CO. For what seemed like ages, I was left to wonder what had happened between the greatest team in the game and perhaps one of its greatest players—Hor had, after all, won two Cyber-Steins for CO during his tenure there.
Now finally, I have my answer.
Hugo Adame and Jae Kim are both longstanding members of Team Savage. Well-recognized figures in the Internet community, both are respected for their deck building and dueling skills. Today, only one was in attendance.
For personal reasons that Team Savage does not yet wish to publicly disclose, Adame was not in attendance at today’s competition. By his wish though, Jae Kim is playing his friend’s favorite deck: “I figured if I played his deck he could sort of be here in spirit.”
And that’s why Jae Kim is playing . . . wait for it . . . a Dark Magician deck.
