What? I was agreeing with you. A truly skilled duelist will be able to get just as much value out of Mushroom Man as Raigeki! It's all about how you use the cards!

If you're reaching kog it's because you're running a meta deck. Listen to me when I say you have no originality when you copy these decks. Do you feel like more of a winner because you're using a deck you didn't even come up with? I'm not some butt hurt kid who keeps losing, I realize this is just yugioh. But I grew up playing it and would like the integrity of the game to come back to it . Who the FUCK wants to keep playing draw out, fire king, inflict life points, or of course the red eyes decks? This right here just shows what kind of sheep live in this game. No thought for yourself.

And pray for rngesus. On my promo match to kog had to fight with red eyes last gamble that use providence on 3 of my phoenix before last gamble and last gamble roll 6. He already been bless with luck with starting hand and draw after that plus last gamble luck. As conclusion this game is 85% luck 15% skill. If u play this game long enough u know its true

Sooo guys..after playing for 9 months, today I decided to delete this game. I was already thinking about it for a while but this week's event covinced me the game isn't worth playing . I've built a great deck, and was super excited about it. I went from plat 1 to plat 5 with 16 wins in 18 games. I had a win streak of 14 and only lost to toons. I t looked like I came up with an own deck that will wasily take me to kog. The next 3 days tho my win rate dropped to like 40%, and I went back to plat 1(I had a win streak of 8 in this period too tho). So that made me realise how stupid the ranked system is. Skill doesn't matter almost at all. It.s almost only about luck. Your starting hand, the cards you draw, Your opponent's cards, your opponent's starting hand. I even think now, kog is for those players that are lucky enough to get good matchups and starting hands. I don't believe it's because they play well. You can reach kog or be stuck in plat 1 with the exact same deck. Luck plays a way bigger factor in this game than it should in my opinion. And this weakness of the game is even more emphasised by the ranked duel system. Getting 5 wins in a row requires a fckin lot of luck, no matter how good your deck is. You can have the godliest deck and may still not be able to get to kog just because of how much luck kog requires. I really think the current format needs some serious change. it should be rather like win 4 games outta the last 5 and promote. This consecutive win thing is bullshit. Win rate should be the thing that matters, not the luck that is required to win 5 games in a row

never label people as weak or inferior when it comes to skill or experience. I think my time spent here in this site proved to be a valuable life lesson for me. I need to change and mend my ways. I acknowledge that I have become arrogant in the past. I am deeply sorry for that. I won't continue this post anymore, nor make it longer than it ever needs to be. Wish you luck, my impersonators!

Is it possible to climb out of Plat without playing phoenix; Naturia; Red Eyes; Ice barrier?
Never thought I'd miss the good old relinquished; 3SD and HHG meta :(

Naturia is a really cheap decent deck and Red-Eyes can easily be built on a budget.

Yes,it is possible to catapult to platinum without those decks,and believe or not its not so hard to reach.. This is the deck what I played through all leagues to Plat 1(it was modified step by step from league to league,depends on gems and Ranked rewards tickets).

Duel links is over. I remember first pegasus event and kc cup event, what a hype that was real duel links but now it became "buying more card packs game" and too many unnecessary events, too much decks and stuff. I cant enjoy, im done But thank you duel links they were really good times, i loved you so much. see you in another life kc cup mako rex days.

Why do all you morons just run the same 3-4 decks as everyone else. All u need to do is make a deck that counters them and it's freebie wins. I went from gold 1 to plat 3 without even trying in 1 day only lost a couple due to brick deals. You people are idiots. How smart is it when your opponent know every move you're gonna make because he's played the deck 100 times hahahaha

Your Relinquished deck is shitty because you use more then one copy of the Djinn which you will only need one copy of with that skill, running a terrible skill with that deck, and not enough lv 4 or lower monsters not counting sphere and Djinn. I play the deck myself competitively or Red-Eyes depending on what BS I faced in ranked.

A lot of hate for this guy but he is much better than MoBC at this point with his support. Easy 1st turn summon no matter what hand. Lots of OTKs so far.

lol so much butthurt he must be in silver playing a brainless beatdown deck. These "meta" decks you can't actually just copy and hope the combos would work out on its own. Try to at least get to plat ok?

yeah because trying to play a deck competitively with no understanding of deck creation is intelligent af. netdecking is a thing, rather than complain about it, try learning those decks and countering them.
<< Anonymous

Lol. OP, git gud man, you know that a "meta" doesn't always guaranteed you to win? because the most important thing is to learn/analyze what's the most common decks that people use in your current ladder. So you can built&play a "correct" deck to counter it, no matter it's gonna be a "meta" deck again or not. Try to learn that now OP, don't just complain man, this site isn't the place for that.

Is there any future card that will every dethrone kuriboh as best card in the game. The only one that competes for best card with it is econ.

kuriboh is far from the best card in the game at this point
<< Anonymous
Anonymous Reply
So u say kuriboh is not the best card but u don't offer an example. Name a card better then a card that flipps a guy to defense position without any way of them knowing it's coming and is very difficult to destroy and is invincible to toon kingdom effect and champions vigilance. Plus it fits into almost every deck. What card is better. Only econ rivals it.

econ is significantly better than kuriboh, and running both in the same deck is redundant and waste of deck slots in most cases, therefore, kuriboh is far from being the best card in the game.

How the FUDGE do you beat this deck? Every duel goes like this: - Opponent goes first everytime because of flying meatball's effect - Opponent summons pea with wings and special summons Tatsu - Tatsu's effect activates (as long as he is on the field you can't win and his attack becomes 9999, also toss a fixed coin. If it lands heads, you win) - Opponent wins So sick of this bullpoo.

40% on the deck, 40% on your first hand, 10% on your opponent first hand and 10% on your own skill. Right now, I have a tier 1 deck, I know how to use it, but I had two shitty first hands (with restart) and a lot of bad luck with my two first draws... My opponent is about to crush me...

yeah KOG is the deck and RNG/luck. and luck on if you go up against MOD APK. the only skill is if you build an original deck, no skill in the actual game

I got 3 econs from ranked duels this past 2 months.. it doesn't matter that I have them tho. Everyone in Plat already had these cards, it actually just gives fair advantage to p2p players to stand a chance to get to plat and compete. Econs dont matter that much anymore, its what strategy (red eyes swarm, naturia swarm, toon un-interactiveness) that determines wins nowadays
