Announced on July 25, Konami provided us with the information for the events that are coming this August. There are several events announced, including a certain Legendary Duelist where we can get new cards at the beginning of the month. The Yu-Gi-Oh! World Championship 2017 Duel Links Division and the return of Paradox brothers will begin Mid-August. And finally, at the end of the month, a long awaited character will be obtainable.
A certain LD will appear [Early August]
New cards can be obtained from this certain Legendary Duelist. Who do you think he/she is? Stay tune for further updates!
Speculation: a new LD will be an "Elegant" Mai!
The JP Duel Links announcements says the new LD is "華麗" can be translated into "Elegant". Then it's safe to say that Elegant Mai will appear in Duel World like Super Joey event.
Duel-A-Thon [Early August]
Gems, Golds, and Jewels
Duel-A-Thon will be held again in Early August. During the event period, you will earn points for "Duel Meter" to get new cards by having duels.
The winners of the recent Final Qualifiers from all over the world will gather to Japan to duel each other. Which region will take it and who will be crowned as the first ever King of Games? Watch their epic plays Live!
The return of Paradox Brothers [Mid-August]
The Paradox Brothers are coming back with new prizes to get! Collect Maze Keys by winning duels against Standard Duelists, Legendary Duelists, and the Vagabond. Challenge the Paradox Brothers at the Gate once you obtain required amount of Maze Keys. Earn "Points" after duels against Paradox Brothers based on Duel Assessment to unlock them and get exclusive event rewards.
Of these, only two are speculated on this site to be the character we will obtain; Yugi Muto and Mokuba Kaiba. This site has been correct on what it speculates thus far and today we got notice that Mokuba Kiaba is back on the 22nd for an event in which you duel him for loot. This means he won't be obtainable yet. This makes sense as he is newer and many doubters are not really for his additon. I would love to have him as a character but it seems Yugi Muto is next and Mokuba is simply another time.
But why though? Espa, Tristan and Bonz are boring characters who had no significance to the story. Most of Bonz's cards are already in duel links, except Pumpking, which is trash anyway. Jinzo is okay, but if Konami were ever planning on releasing him, they would most likely have made him a Joey drop. Tristan didn't even have a deck.
If I may speak for myself;
I claimed that throughout all of this "discussion" to change DL & bitch about it, everyone still plays it. Anon2 was stating that Anon1's comment made no sense as a reply as it was just what I claimed towards him...assuming its the same Anon. And as Anon1 just literally repeated what I said & tried to flip it back w/ no context, the comment seems trollish in nature.
It says that the event is based off of the original series, presumably the Anime. This makes it sound like there will be a special event, meaning that I doubt someone like Bonz or Espa Roba will be the character, as they were just episodic villains (Also RIP Bonz, you tried to mug the wrong guy.). This leaves me with two very broad options---either The Big Five from the DIGITAL WORLD (which would make sense, because Duel Links canon says that Duel Links itself is a digital universe), OR Dartz or Raphael or either of those other two involved with the Seal of Orichalcos. Both Eatos and the Seal itself would be awesome. I don't think Noah Kaiba will be a duelist, due to the fact that his signature card, Shinato, is already available in Electric Overload.
Once again, I'm pretty sure Duel Links bases itself off of the Anime, so they could be added. Remember that in the manga Pegasus got murdered by Bakura, and Bandit Keith was murdered by Pegasus. There's no reason to believe they won't be added.
Blue Eyed Dragon
I dont care if it's marik or arkana just keep the other generations out!
