Forbidden cards are essentially "banned" cards, while limited simply means that you can only put 1 in a deck, semi-limited is up to two in your deck only. Some cards in the OCG/TCG are either forbidden, or limited, and this is due to their ability to create an unbalanced experience for the game.
Unlike in the TCG/OCG where you can have multiple limited cards with different names in your deck, in Duel Links you can only have a total of 1 limited card in your deck. For example you have limited card A and limited card B, and you already put 1 card A in your deck, you cannot add card B to your deck even if they are not cards of the same name. This rule is also true for semi-limited cards in which you can only have a total of 2 semi-limited cards in your deck.
"Limiting Mask Change makes Heroes unviable"
good, most people don't want it viable to begin with. Limiting this card wouldn't even destroy this deck completely, just push it out of the meta into rogue decks.
Many people wants the other Heroes to be viable too, in fact it's one of the most loved archetype in Japan.
Do you guys read the comments(?), every freaking day it's the same: "konami is trying to sell this, komoney this, komoney that, oh yeah they are greedy b*stards, everything is expensive".
DUDE SERIOUSLY THE AMOUNT OF DECEPTION IS EXCESSIVE, I didn't believe it at first, but now I truly think some greedy folks want to boycott just to get rid of a competitor. Thanks to last Espa roba's event I've farmed plenty of gems and event the most expensive of all decks cost you 3$, how do you say it's expensive? anyway, I guess it's just pointless to talk to malicious folks.
Yeah, because it's Konami's fault you spent a bunch of money on cards without even checking how good they are... You're right, though, being a blind sheep is stupid. But paying Konami for things isn't necessarily being a blind sheep if you're not an idiot.
Yeah, people who doesn't think Konami deserves to be called "Komoney", clearly never touch the real life game.
As an example, literally everyone is very sure that the common Ash Blossom in OCG Soulburner deck will be replaced with something trash in TCG, while Ash Blossom itself is shortprinted in a random content box for TCG.
OCG reprints a very important handtrap as a Common rarity in a structure deck
TCG will definitely reprint it as a shortprint (meaning it's extremely low in quantity regardless of rarity) in a random content box instead, possibly in another Secret Rare rarity. Good luck buying lots of boxes for a copy.
That's why TCG players often call Konami as "Komoney".
My problem with these people is that Duel Links is probably the only gacha game that is kind of "fair" with how they get cards. Like take shit like Dokkan for example and compare it to this, what do you think would push you over to P2P quicker.
While I don't really care all that much about what Konami limits or not. Fact is, they limit only easy to acquire f2p deck cards (Vyon exception, still less than 8-9 bucks + 500gems for 3 copies guaranteed, low spend), and all the rest of the cards are admist 80 box or N/R, and drops. Konami listens well to their P2W community, in the sens they only want expensive decks that a f2p can't repetively create. Yes, you can farm gems and make any deck you want, but by that time meta would evolve, and f2p can't repetively compete without small box op archetypes. But Konami keeps limiting them. I am sure more small box op archetype will be availlable in the future for f2p base. But if Konami would listen to f2p community, they would limit archetypes like silent magician, ua, vampire,masked hero, or pretty much a lot of the ur/sr in 200 boxes that is flooding the kog ladder. But those bring out a lot of money, so they won't. It makes sens from a business perspective, but I just wish they wouldn't call this balancing ranked.
the problem as they state every ban list is the overwhelming number of players using them, (whether they win or not), it being f2p makes it open to all players so it gets over used. im guessing they are looking for a ratio less than 3/5 duels being similar decks as
Anki may gets hit, I hope Konami do the right thing! :D
Instead of getting more expensive, the game is actually getting more and more playable.
Acuactress, madolches, hazy flames, crystal beasts, gladiator beasts and more archetypes that are not very expensive are back into action.
I don't think Destiny Draw is an issue. Ideally the best scenario would be Semiing Anki or Mask Change, forcing you to use worse Destiny HEROes if you want the Anki OTK to be an option. (And removing Celestial from the equation makes the deck quite a bit less consistent, too.)
