On a brighter note, anyone know what the difference between "OCG" and "TGC" are on DN?, I noticed mention of the terms at one point but wasn't able to figure out the context.

OCG refers to cards that are only present in Japan and a few other Asian countries (mostly japan though). While TCG refers to everywhere else: Europe, Africa, The Americas, etc.
It is hard for people out of the loop to know whether a card is of OCG or a TCG exclusive so best not to think about it too much, as DN just grabs both to create its own tier list pretty much. And mixing up the two formats can create some pretty amazing decks.
People that tend to post "OCG Only" in the comments are either people who are practicing for TCG tournaments like YCS or Regionals and want to fight against the meta or decks they are more familiar with; but they can also be inept players who believe all those Japanese cards in the OCG are not real till they are turned over to the TCG... Don't play against them unless you know them or something.
