Wait. It says here that certain skills are changed on July 18th? Maybe that is Restart?

Unless July 18th is a mistype and gamea meant to say June 18th and that other skills won't get nerfed until June 26th. Maybe that is why Restart still works for you.

The news post is very clear. The changes happen upon updating to version 2.8.0. You will be forced to update to that version on the 26th if you haven't already.

If they nerf restart by missing a draw they could have removed the "showing your hand" part.

Everything was ok with most of the skills, So there is no reason they should make dumb changes like that. How are we going to farm with the updated Restart?

well, the events for quite some time have had terrible card rewards so you probably should slow down on farming a bit

Everyone complaining about restart being nerfed when now it's like a Mulligan in magic (basically if you restart you will have a card less in hand) and it's still viable, a card loss may be a huge loss as it may not be a problem, basically you draw 2/5 of the deck with restart and the loss of a card to do that isn't a very big loss
The skill that become trash is balance, if you rely in a deck that uses only monster and traps or monster and spells now those deck like noble knight are shit, I use Amazoness with balance because I play more monster and traps and I don't know why but with balance I always obtain a perfect hand with a princess or onslaught in hand but now it's useless
What decks have that card balance? Is impossible

redrawing your opening hand is independent of your original draw, so you don't actually draw 2/5 of your deck
Holtz 10days ago
The skill nerfs for restart and balance are way over the top definitely could of left them as is and this is punishing great deck builders for no reason by removing the consistency with these nerfs which is a massive disappointment and the direction this game is treading with these decisions is going to make the player base numbers drop massively to the point Konami could face the same backlash like EA is currently getting and will need to mend the trust of the player base

I'm gald they're nerfing Grit. That skill combined with a burn deck is cheap as as I've came back twice with no cards and would have won had it not been for grit saving the player. now its fair and prevents an OTK vs just being active when you have 500 LP's and its the end of a duel. winning due to a "skill" isn't winning.
