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.
In Duel Links
There are currently no Forbidden/Limited cards yet, but on Jun 30, there is a news announcement which gives further detail about this feature, and that it will be implemented on Aug 3. Restructer Revolution is the only thing that's mentioned, showing that it will be a Limited (only 1) status, along with the details of why it's on the list.
no!!!!konami!!! I spent a lot of gems to get woodland sprite leafy boy! I spent a lot of gems to get 3 copies!! now you limit?? how am I supposed to burn noobs to death with my awesome bamboo burn deck that I made?!
:) This is so funny. All these triggered comments and the buffoon above me trying to defend the idiot OP. I hate pandas and burn decks, and sarcasm and fun :) So please, continue to fight among yourselves! So entertainment!

why not limit bamboo? there is more options without 3 copy sprite. wtf bamboo still broken.
Why not limit black pendant?? Semi limit black pendant, and the deck becomes way less reliable. If it needs more, semi limit either golden bamboo or cursed bamboo. It wouldn't take much to make the deck more balanced, yet leave the cards still useful for draw in other decks.
i dont think they will ever limit UR cards from boxes, because some people could have spent alot of money to get 3 copies. however, i think they can limit N/R cards from boxes as they are easier to get...
You just know they won't limit bamboo. They'll make it semi-limited at best. Which will help I guess.

I know this will offend some people, but how about instead of whining to have cards banned every time you get beaten; you try to analyze the cards for weaknesses and build your decks accordingly. I believe every card and every deck has its weaknesses. When you lose, why not review the duel and try to see how you can improve your skills and/or adapt your deck.
Yes losing is frustrating but I enjoy the challenge of trying to find ways to beat these different decks. Part of what makes this game so enjoyable is all the different possibilities for decks, and the challenges of making good, hopefully winning, decks.
I'm guessing you've never faced a deck built around woodland sprite before it was limited. That mofo can FTK (first turn kill) you through large amounts of equip cards. Kinda hard to build a strategy to counter a card that doesn't even give you a turn to counter it.
Also considering the small amount of cards currently on the ban list, the only one whining here is you.
I agree about decks that actually allow you to play something. This bamboo crap going on can OTK you before you play a card. The only thinh you can do is not summon anything if the retards don't have Sprite but even then how can you win? That one needs nerf immediately.

Is Konami kidding me? Why can I only use two semi-limited cards in my deck? That's not how the limitation works in YuGiOh.
Is it really that intended or is it a bug?
It is a damn 20card deck format. Being able to use 2 of each limited card won't do much sh!t.

These being limited has its perks and its downfalls but least Konami are smart enough to make the game balanced instead of everyone running 'cuc' against anything and winning. Winning simple, we all win and we all lose some. But honestly, it's how you win. Would you rather enjoy yourself knowing your original and expanding while becoming better? Or would you want to be arrogant, cocky, still lose some, and become a self evidence of not learning ANYthing. Some kids on this mobile game think they're "smart" except what they do proves not. Point? Be original.
Komoney, for stop these all crying people,about limitation ability of cards please ban all f2p that represent over your 90% in your game and save your minority of p2w for you,We know that your only real equilibrium in this game, your game, is money vs money.
