Is mahjong manga (or really mahjong media) the most imbalanced genre in fan translations, with regards to the ratio of number of series to number of readers/spectators?
It seems to me that even among mahjong manga and anime fans, there's reluctance to go read anything other than Saki (and assorted spinoffs) and Akagi. It's understandable, but it's a shame nevertheless that people who don't know mahjong seem to completely avoid works that feature the game. Shame because I'm not sure that we can say that there is a series that would be a pain to go through if you didn't know the game aside from Ten, and Ten's finale is so great that it'd be worth learning the game just to read that work. Saki's popularity (or maybe I'm just overrating its popularity?) is a bit absurd in this light because it's full of references to mahjong media and history (simplest example, all of the dialogue at the end of the anime episodes reference famous passages in mahjong manga), it's actually pretty heavy on the jong, but does it subtly so to say.
Of course every one of these series become more enjoyable if you actually have some experience in the game, but for example Naki no Ryuu was revolutionary back in its day because it was a mahjong manga that could -and was- read by the general public. Whereas today it looks like not even many mahjong manga fans are touching it even though it's being translated, let alone random manga readers.

You have no yaku.

That's what happens when newbies call every tile and make a garbage hand that can't win.

You could have gone for open tanyao (where you don't have any wind tiles, dragon tiles, 1 tiles or 9 tiles) but you called pon on the 9m and sealed your faith.

I have a tip for you faggots. When you're a complete beginner, play the gamedesign mahjong for 6-12 months. Experiment for yourself what happens when you do a certain something in a situation. Don't close the tab, play at all times, they don't have a timer anyway. Don't even try to memorize the yaku by looking at the convenient yaku list, you'll just forget it later. Play until you absorb all the law by experience. After that you can start playing in tenhou.

At least that's how I did it.

>>14568436
Show me your tenhou stats anon. You can't beat me, I'm a 10-dan player.
>>
>>14568295
If I remember correctly

-(assuming that your hand has at least 1 yaku) If one of your winning tile is in your pond, it's permanent furiten BUT you can win with a tsumo
-If you go for say tanyao and are in tenpai with 78 waiting for 69, if the 9 comes to you and your hand is closed is a menzen tsumo so you win, if it's open and you discard it, permanent furiten so you better change your wait, if another player discards the 9 you're in furiten until it's your turn again
>>
>>14568447
He posted again asking why another hand was furiten when he ponned 9m and the rest of his hand was going for a tanyao.

The kid needs to learn what yaku is first before we get into the technical stuff.
>>
>>14568447
Also remember that if you riichi with a closed hand and pass on a win aiming for either for a bigger hand or to not kill a player, that furiten is until the end of the round, not the end of the turn.
>>
>>14568458
Didn't know that

Luckily for me I never pass a win because I'm a scrub
>>
>>14568458
>pass on a win

No, pass on a ron. If you pass on tsumo you will still be forever furiten.
>>

If you pass on a ron while riichi'd it last until the end of the round.
>>
>>14568504
That's what I said. I was correcting you, you said win, which implied tsumo as well. So I said no, it's just for ron.
>>
>>14568517

This implied it can be tsumo or ron and he didn't even say anything about it being only for ron after that so yes, it was necessary.
>>
>>14568517
You didn't change anything about what I said though. With both methods of winning (ron and tsumo) the result of passing while riichi'd is a round lasting furiten. What did you correct here?
>>
>>14568559
During riichi it doesn't matter. Passing on a ron is the same as passing on a tsumo.
>>
>>14568570
I think he's confused about the "for a bigger hand" part. Like he only thinks I mean only the yaku for tsumo increasing the hands value, instead of something like the example I hand in mind, san shoku.

How often do anons incorporate complex waits?

I have a few down, namely nobetan, ryanmenten, sanmentan, and pentan.

However, waits like kantankan, tatsumaki and happoubijin are a bit of a stretch for me to memorize atm (hence why I'm making an autist spreadsheet right now).
>>
>>14568628
I don't know

I just press the riichi button when it pops up
>>
>>14568628
>nobetan, ryanmenten, sanmentan, and pentan.
If you have these down pat, then you're in fairly good shape.
>>
>>14568628
post your sheet later on
>>
>>14568656
Eh, I don't know about that. Sometimes it's better to stay damaten until you have a better wait. Unless you have a early hand in tenapi on shanpon wait, (12 or 89 waiting on 3 or 7) since it's probably easier to win than to shift to a better wait at the point. Plus you wouldn't slow down your hand allowing opponents to catch up etc.

>>14568665
Alrighty, good to know! I guess I should incorporate ryantan, too.
>>
>>14568681
I mean, it's going to be on stuff I struggle to memorize and conceptualize, but if you want to look at it, then sure.
>>
>>14568686
Well, it's good to get some practice with Bamboo Mahjong to recognize difficult tenpais
>>
>>14568628
I don't have to know those terms to incorporate complex waits in my hands. I don't think people even need to memorize them
>>
>>14568706
Yeah, people probably don't. But I think I do.
>>
>>14568733
I can see your point for the more common waits but what is the point of memorizing something like what happoubijin is? You're gonna see that wait like once every 500 games. Or less.
>>
>>14568628
I think its cool when everybody has their small pool of favorite yaku to go for, like their own personal flavor you have to learn how to defend against. Feels very Saki when you play against the same people regularly and can tell what they're going for.
>>
>>14568746
Good point. But I'd feel dumb if I review a replay and realize I threw away a great shape because I didn't study up.

>>14568758
I think that's cool, too.
>>
>>14568758
It will only be cool if people actually have lesbian superpowers like in Saki.

Is Mahjong actually popular in Japan still? Seemed like one of those things that used to be popular back in the 50s or some shit, but not very popular in the modern era (see: Go, Chess, etc).
>>
>>14569423
Of course it's still popular. Haven't you seen saki? Those highschool mahjong tournaments are a real thing.
>>
>>14569410
yup
>>
>>14569410
Yes

>>14569423
Mahjong is still the #1 most played table game in Japan. Possibly in the entire East Asian region even.
Go and chess are entirely skill dependent games for 2 people, so it's normal that they can't be as popular as mahjong which is played with 4 people and where with enough luck even a novice can beat a super pro.

The game would actually be even more popular in Japan if it didn't have an image of being tied with the underworld and gambling. It seems like people are more likely to get into it when they graduate from high school, and one Japanese friend I have mentioned how in his school people had problems playing the game there due to opposition by teachers.
As an interesting note, he and some others mentioned that Akagi was what interested many of the generation born in the late '80s-early '90s to get into the game.

You can rip the sub off viki as srt and then just play the raws using mpc. Even if the timing is off, you can use xyfilter for the timing offset. Care to share the raws at mega?

I got a physical mahjong set.

I was so excited to play it, after months of playing online, and even teaching my flatmates and friends.

We did a test game.
Flatmate1 and his girlfriend quit after two hands to watch Sherlock, saying it was 'just a pause'.
Then, two hours later, it was too late to actually keep playing.

I'm not blaming them, I'm aware that the number of people seriously invested in this game must be abysmal outside of Japan, but it still felt kind of lonely, being the only one who cared.

At least I can keep being a shitter in 7447

What really does look retarded is defending a /jp/-thread terminology. 槓子 is a set of four identical tiles that’s named a kong in World Riichi Championship terminology (see above). カン in its turn is a 鳴き, a call.

Is everyone in 7447 scrubs? Whenever I play there I end up first or second most of the time, but dare I go to 0000 I almost ALWAYS lose. There, it seems like everyone is always in tenpai waiting on my tiles not 5 discards in, it's insane. I can even start with a good enough hand as to win something at least, like 2 dragons and 2 of my wind, yet I never get to call them and even if I wait on shittier hands I can NEVER get in tenpai.

The pon. It was during a riichi and caused the person riichi'd to get a haneman. It didn't even get them into tenpai either. And despite this they won in the end anyway. It must have been some master plan.

Maybe you just need to play defense. If you have no idea how to play defense, just go betaori every time someone declares riichi.

>>14578586
they still don't

>The player has declared
riichi. The hand scores 1 yaku for Riichi, 1 yaku for Pinfu, 2 yaku for Pure Straight (because
the hand is concealed. Note that even though it is a claimed tile that finishes the Pure
Straight, it still scores an extra yaku because the hand is concealed). Total: 4 yaku.

Yeah. I don't think that English yaku names are a bad thing though- most people get discouraged with all the Japanese names unless they're very much into the game, and this includes Japanese learners. However the Japanese names should always also be included.
The confusion between yaku and han is inexcusable though. And so is using the Chinese terms, might as well say Lìzhí instead of Riichi then.

I played five game on general lobby and end with 0-2-2-1. The problem is that my hands are shit or wall won't allow me to get tenpai earlier than around 12th turn.
On the other side my opponents get a lot quick and strong hand and quick riichi.What's more I saw three tenpai to suu ankou (deal into one when I was oya - still dora san so it hurt) and once end up third with 30k points.

Got ron sixth time, so yea, could be better, but I don't think it was the main problem here (only two times I must paid more than 3900 - one is that haneman above, second when I dealt into ippatsu chiitoitsu wait on sha (have three on my hand and no other safe titles).

tl;dr
this year sucks

I'm starting to think once you play enough you unlock what superstitious ones refer as "sense" for the tiles, or being able to grab the 'flow".

I don't mean anything as idiotic as hidden energies or anything, it's more like how if you've played a thousand games, sometimes you will have deja vu about situations, so you will instinctively 'feel' what someone is waiting on, because you played that same hand some 200 games ago, so it's likely to unfold the same way.
>>
>>14581280
>sometimes you will have deja vu about situations
Man, this happened like 3 times in a game I played the other day. Right down to "I'll draw the red 5p now" or "Now I'll get to kan this".

I still got my ass kicked.
>>
>>14581280
Sort of? I always think when I draw the tile to get into tenpai, "shit, this tile is gonna get ron'd off. Yup."
>>
>>14581280

You think that's impressive? Let me tell you something. I have actual mahjong super powers.

Whenever someone declares riichi I will, without fault, draw the tile they are waiting on the very next turn. If I were a bit smarter I could use this information to not deal in, but I'm not.
>>
>>14581262
All rons. It was impressive, but in a different way.

It's true, and that's why experience is important. If you want to get good, you have to play more.

Take a break and reassess your game. Last month I was in a similar situation. Hell, I was one 4th place away from being demoted to 3-dan. It seemed to me that all I do is lose no matter how hard I try.

In my losing streak I was too angry and kept gambling in matches where I shouldn't. The trick for me was to remember that the game owes me nothing. Just because I got unlucky in one game doesn't mean it has to compensate me by rewarding my stupid gambles in another game. Once I get that out of my system(not completely, some of that sense of entitlement still remains even nowadays) my game improve and I began climbing up again.

Put simply, find your weaknesses and try to fix it.
