Updated Information

What is forbidden/limited card?

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.

Ruling

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.

Champs Vigilance should be at two in the near future to promote normal monster play as the meta is effect monster heavy, Pulse Mines shouldn’t even be on the list just a curse of Anubis for machines

Simply limit certain Blue Eyes support cards so that players have to choose which card they want to play. This is a situational card that’s useless at only 1 copy per deck hence why nobody uses it in rank anymore. They keep this limited but won’t limit the dozen plus other cards that need to be on here.

Considering one of the OP tier 1 meta deck today is a Machine deck....yeah no, Pulse Mines can and should remain limited, please.

Because there are no cards that must be forbidden currently

TTH says hi.

That card is strong enough in today's meta to be Forbidden. Semi-limiting it did nothing since:
1. Newer meta decks don't have any other semi-limited cards.
2. People usually only play 1 copy of TTH anyway. Limiting it does nothing, especially since newer meta decks don't have any limited cards either.

They should stop adding cards to the ban list with the exception of absolutely broken ones that allow FTK

This game is exactly like a hydra that grows two heads in place of one, there will always be an imbalance

There always being an imbalance doesn't make balancing unnecessary. In fact, it's very much the opposite. You really, really don't want a format that's "balanced" by there being exactly 1 worthwhile deck. That's what would happen with no list. The list exists to make sure there are no Tier 0 decks.

I seriously wish Dual Wield would get on this list, I'm so sick of losing to every Six Sam player because of that one broken trap.

Card is easy to play around opponent has to only have 1 monster on the field and if it’s not the Shi En it’s a lower level monster easy to take out. If you lose to this card opponent simply outplayed you very situational card

A situational card that's very easy to build said situation for. How is it my fault that I drew none of my trap removal and lost in 1 turn because my opponent just left out 1 Six Sam monster with a Dual Wield and World Legacy Clash?

Six Sams are very consistant, they very rarely don't have an out unless you're using a specific counter to them. 1st turn Shi En is extremely common, so getting a Dual Wield when you can use 3 in a deck isn't so hard to do.

Most of these bans are useless since there are lots of better cards already.

That is just plain incorrect. There's maybe a couple (I guess Marshalleaf and Samurai Skull could probably leave the list at this point), but most of the cards on here are either strong enough to warrant it, or belong to decks that are strong enough to warrant it.

I agree with your statement.
I understand why they still limit Samurai Skull.
But Marshleaf? Sylvan is not even relevant right now. If the reason is because of Rose Lover, that's dumb because todays meta is not even revolving in usung traps anymore.
More of it just monster effect and spell.

Konami know many veteran players won't go through new boxes if some old cards were unlimited, that won't be good for Konami's business. They indeed unnerfed Red-Eyes Spirit, but it was because they need people to buy the Red-Eyes Structure Deck

Spirit was unlimited waaaaay before the Red-Eyes box came it- it literally had 0 impact in the game anymore, so they could safely take it off the list

There's no need to. Just give players access to Gravekeeper's Commandant, Terraforming, or Metaverse, and Darklords are dead.

All cards from EX deck should be forbidden so meta can be healthy.

That disappointing banlist with only 1 card last month. Minimum 5 cards should be added into the list everytime just like TCG!

Should have said OCG banlist instead, at least they actually thought about balance.

3 forbidden & 3 limited so a total of 6 in April 2019.

2 forbidden, 8 limited & 3 semi-limited, a total of 13 in July 2019 banlist.

I am only counting newly added cards. DL should learn from TCG.
