Based on Duel Assessments

The amount of score is based on the conditions players achieve in a duel. The more amount of score can be obtained as the achieved assessments are difficult.

One Reward by 1,000 Score

Players can obtain one reward per 1000 score when winning a duel. For example, when the score is 2000 or more but less than 3000, you can get 2 rewards.


Over 6,000 score

Quick Victory and Comeback Victory can be active at the same time and gives you score of 2,500. Not easy to achieve two of them in a duel, but not impossible.

Over 9,999 Damage and Cards on the Brink

To achieve those two is the most popular way to get high score from Legendary Duelists. See the list of cards that can increase their ATK over 10,000.

Quick Victory and No Damage

Quick Victory and No Damage are the easiest conditions to achieve. Using high stats monster cards and equip spell may also allow you to achieve Over 3000 Damage.

Depends on your opponent

If your opponent use spell cards decreasing your life points, LP on the Brink will be easier to achieve. Understanding cards in the opponent's deck is important.

Daemon Blitzkrieg 4days ago
Because DEY SO GLOSSEH!!!~ Also, 100 x # of Glossy cards played in the Duel. So, easy Math, 10 Glossy cards were played or Activated.

"Victory by Effect Damage Only" can be also obtained by doing damage only with effects and winning the duel by a Deck Out Victory. In other words, you can use a Raimei and win by Deck Out without causing battle damage and you'll get a "Victory by Effect Damage Only" reward.

Monsters that are special summoned through another card effect don't get the assesment points "played a Glossy or Prismatic". That means Glossy or Prismatic Fusion and Ritual Monsters dont get assessment points.
anoymous 6days ago
Yes they do. I have glossy fusions and always get assessment points for playing them.
anoymous 8days ago
does discarding a prismatic/glossy give points?
anoymous 6days ago
No, they were not played.
FYI 8days ago
Destroy monsters assessments seems only count monster destroyed "by battle". I destroy 11 monsters in a duel but several of them by Barrel Dragon eff. Result only get 7 monsters in assessment.
Daemon Blitzkrieg 8days ago
It may have changed recently (doubt it) but it has counted monsters destroyed by effects b4, even your own monsters i.e. Daedalus sweep. Test it a few more times.
Try this one, use kickout to deal 10000 effect damage, 6000 score at least (2000 victory+3000deal morethan9999+1000effect damage only)

Hi guys,
I'm join the game late. Now the first two pack is not available anymore. Is there any way for me to get cards that need for the auto deck or high score deck?

Thanks in advance,
anoymous 15days ago
For the auto deck just make a beatdown standart deck, without many combos because the AI in some cases fucked up with some plays
Chaos 19days ago
Would anyone suggest a change to my high assessment deck?
With blue eyes ultimate
And over 5000 damage?
Johan Patterson 22days ago
Guys, please tell me how this can happened?? Played glossy card=450. As we know that for 1 glossy card is 100. Answer please.
anoymous 20days ago

Daemon Blitzkrieg 21days ago
That's easy, YOU LOST. SO your 9 Glosstastic cards + bonus were cut in half. That's not hard to figure out.
Johan Patterson 22days ago
Quick victory + over 9999 damage. Let's guess, what this deck?? LoL

My reddit thread:

How to Trigger the "Comeback Victory" in Duel Links?

At the beginning of the turn that you finish your enemy you have to have less HP than the enemy.

Example: You have 2K HP and Your Enemy has 3K HP. You deal 3K Damage and finish him off. You will receive the Comeback Victory Bonus.

What are possible Opportunities to get it?

Ceberus is the most Common deck. Get attacked, Sorcery Conduit or Low Level Draw as Skill, You draw Ceberus and Power him up to finish enemy.

Are there faster Versions to get 40x for Level 57?

In my opinion, the fastest way is using Wrecker Panda

Build a deck with 1-3x Wrecker Panda Use Skill "Earth Draw" or "Low Level Draw" Put ONLY Monsters in the Deck (as many high Level as you have) Summoner Wrecker Panda, Use it's skill to finish off enemy with one turn.

Easiest against Lvl 10 Legendary Duelists

Imo, comeback victory also need to finish at >5th turn so as not to trigger quick victory at 4th turn. Thanks for Cerberus tip, works for me
