They get lazy once it's close to stage 2 and sometimes wait to submit more of the decks until stage 2 is about to start and they have another event article to update.

And I don't blame them kc cup months are a total waste, the game di*s for 15 days

I don't think we even have new events anymore except for character unlocks. It's pretty boring.
No new in-game notification about event and stuff in more than a week. I don't know if Konami team are busy preparing Zexal or they are just being lazy. Unless you are ready for 3 days of 2nd stage, the month with KC Cup inside is basically a boring month, and the only interesting stuff is the daily 50 gems.

Man they should bring back events like „Attack from the rare Hunters, return of Marik“ or „Showdown in battle city“. Or even events including dungeon dice or Noah and kaiba‘s step dad. There are so many different ideas but they just don’t do anything

I'd love a capsule monsters event.........or event better (for me) make it a total different game
Lol that lava golem invoked deck looks pretty f.i.l.t.h.y. Hope nobody ran into it. I am running a stall deck myself and I know how people rage quit when they get the golem

A stall deck with the invoked engine really makes no sense Cocytus makes a little sense sure but you only get one with no way to recover it so you’re dedicating 5 cards in your main deck for one extra deck card literally makes no sense plus it’s just a 1rst stage qualifier so basically a legend 1 deck that’s not impressive all in all it’s a meme deck just play it for fun it
<< Anonymous

I don't see how that is even fun. I never saw Cocytus used as stall in reality, even though he has high defense. The typical use for him I see is have him attack as he gains stat increases with the elesaber field spell, equip spells and Aleister hand trap. In fact both Cocytus and Purgatrio are anti stall tactics pretty much all the time. So it sounds so weird to me.

It is weird that’s why it’s different it’s still a bad deck

YGO players are weird.
If someone's wondering:

Yes, you can start ranking now, the "strongest" decks you find now are aromages and blue eyes [blue eyes don't have their core (backrow) so they are easy to beat]

Burn is halved now, but healing isn't (unfair)
<< Anonymous
Anonymous Reply
Not unfair, since healing doesn't directly win games, unlike burn.
most the time the top decks in kc the same more or less like last kc with stage 1 and stage 2. even if the kc gave out 10k gems at stage 2 the kc still won't be worth it

Exactly, this game rewards those who spend to most time sticked to the screen not those ones who have more skill.

WHat's your problem with that?

Maybe many people like me already have at least 3 copies of all cards that money can buy in this game.

Now accept it and deal with it.

This is my deck for reaching dlv max today from lvl 10 (had 5 losses in total). The deck is very powerful.
3x blackwing simoon
2x zephyros the elite
3x Gale
2x bora the spear
1x oroshi
1x krish
3x black whirlwind
2x cosmic cyclone
2x blackbird close
1x necrovalley

Extra deck
Ancient fairy dragon
Ancient pixie dragon
Obsidian Hawk joe
Black winged dragon

The secret is use that necrovalley against decks which are weak to it (witchcrafter, shiranui, dark magician, elemtsabers). They alwaS lose against this deck

dunno, but Block Dragon is strong enough to get Forbidden in TCG lol

TCG is very different than Duel Links. This card was quite bad in the OCG/TCG before Link Summoning existed.

Block dragon before the nerf of "draw sense spell/trap" skill was a big brain deck. Meaning, someone invested time to think it, build it, and hit KOG. Then we all just used our copy machines. And yes, it was ridicously op deck. BW deck is a swarm, repetitive deck that you need 0 brain to use or mak it. You just throw the best cards of the archetype and you use the premade mechanisms. 0 creativity

in my opinion, it's the other way around.
Block Dragon post-nerf is the big brain deck.
Before nerfed, it was much more easier to use, thus requiring less brain work
Finally made it to the 2nd round after facing numerous DM, BEWD, Aromage & Superheavy Samurai
UA Star Blast really unexpected. Hope konami release libero and playing manager. UA is really slow without them.

Hey everyone, this is BigMike. How y’all doing in the cup so far? What decks will u be using?
And how is the new deck karakuri performing? Any experiences?
<< Anonymous(BigMike)

This time KC Cup is balanced. DM and Cydra player didn't always get a good hand. So other deck like Karakuri has a chance. BW tho might get a banlist after KC cup. Blackbird Close a bit strong for 2nd turn player. Also Lightsworn engine need to semi-limited bcuz of WC abused them much.

Hi! I just got duel level max with masked heroes. It really helped that so many people were playing dark magician.

Hi Big Mike.

I got DLV Max yesterday with Valkyrie.
Didnt fought any Karakuri along the way (strange) but they seem to be quite good now based on KOG & DLVMAx list.
Almost reaching Lvl Max. OMG, i saw the same meta deck in almost every duel.. This KC Cup will be soooo boring. Here is my deck (18 level right now, zero lost games) also I reached KOG with this deck this month:

3x Aleister the Invoker
3x Keeper of Dragon Magic
3x Volcanic Shell
1x Elemental HERO Neos
2x Cosmic Cyclone
1x Invocation
2x Neos Fusion
2x Fiendish Chain
3x Karma Cut
2x Ultimate Providence


2x Elemental HERO Brave Neos
3x Invoked Purgatrio
1x Invoked Caliga

None of the nerfs matter before how horribly broken Vijam is. You're trying to give to a deck with 3x floodgate 3x canadia 3x wod full 3 copies of a monster that can't be destroyed by battle and that can permanently floodgate opponent's monsters, as many times as it wishes. JFL. I wonder what the hell is wrong with the "release X card for players" movements.

Reading Vijam's text, I'm not sure if even just 1 Vijam is okay for the game outside skill.

That terrible skill definitely needs to be changed though.

Even changing the skill from "Cubic cards" back to "Cubic monsters" would have made it fine instead of trash.

They release some broken cards for players for profit. But the answer to that should not be even more broken cards. Vijam is really really extremely broken.
