A few weeks ago, I was contacted by Pojo member Paul Bang (username: paulbang111); he wanted to discuss some aspects of the Traditional Format with me. Like most of the people who send me e-mails or befriend me on Facebook (for the record, I quite like it when players do this), he knew what he was talking about and our conversation was lively and informative, giving me hope that the Traditional Format is most definitely alive and well, if only on a small scale. I was then, however, rather surprised to discover he had started his own blog, a very pleasant surprise indeed. He tells me he's going to be focusing on individual cards and their usefullness in Traditional; he already has a couple of articles up, and you can find his blog here: The Traditional Format Blog.
In addition to this, Paul and a few other members have been trying to increase the viability of the Traditional Format sub-forum of Pojo, starting various discussions and debates (which have been, again, very lively) on particular decks, tech cards and so, and even trying to start an online tournament and league system. While I don't post all that often on Pojo myself these days, and severely dislike playing online, I'm very pleased to see such attempts to improve this aspect of the game and to know that I'm no longer alone in my quest for a respected Traditional Format.
