How to get high score

Tips for farming LDs

Score

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.

Tips

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.

nice. deck?

For anyone wondering, Victory by Effect Damage Only can ONLY be achieved when you do effect damage alone! If you attack with a monster and finish off with Restructer Revolution, then that 1000 score isn't added to your Duel Assessment!

You know Daemon, you really shouldn't underestimate how stupid people can get lol.

Here's an example deck I'm using sometimes again lv40 Muto
Daemon Blitzkrieg 2days ago
That's actually very obvious, so not sure how the other guy would think otherwise. Btw, if you REALLY want to go for that bonus, its best to run the Scorpions (Millineum & Serket) w/ Union Attack Vassal. Fairly easy to pull off.

Guys I used Restructer Revolution and I won my opponent, however in the results I didn't get the 1000 score of victory by effect damage only... Is it a bug or sth else?

For those who don't already know, the description for how to get comeback victories mentioned above is incorrect. The life point difference doesn't matter. You just need to have lower life points at the start of the turn that you defeat the opponent.
Daemon Blitzkrieg 9days ago
Well I can definitely confirm that this is the case. As long as your LP was lower than your opponent's when the Turn starts & Win that turn, Comeback Bonus (2500 btw) triggers. I will never be able to pull this or Low LP bonus (which likely runs on the same principle) w/ my Cerberus/Spirit deck. ;;~;; ce'la vi
SirBaconMonkey 10days ago
The issue people have is that they increase their lp or lower the opponents lp so that theirs is higher but don't beat the opponent before the turn ends.
SirBaconMonkey 10days ago
Yep. It's easy
Daemon Blitzkrieg 10days ago
Its that simple? Hmm, Mirror Wall & Spirit Call can abuse this somewhat.
MUFCJord 10days ago
Comeback victory is definitely bugged...
SD 10days ago
I'm trying to get comeback victories for stage 53. I should be able to get my LP below 2000 and then beat them right?
lord2022 9days ago
not exactly let them hit u first with +1500 atk then kill then with one atk while ther lp higher than u
Summons 11days ago
Lots of ritual + tribute Summons
anoymous 1days ago
Ritual, fusion, and tribute summons are only counted once.
anoymous 14days ago
Okay, now I'm confused. This has happened before, but I was never really sure. I've gotten comeback victory without a 2000 LP difference. Is the criteria listed here for this bonus officially confirmed by game devs? Or is it just bugged
Stef 11days ago
I think its not only about lp difference, but also about Ai summon a monster with more than X attack (I guess 2000=<x or somewhere like that) or if the AI has more than 2 monsters than you and or a combination of these factors

Draw results in 1500 points...

Something is wrong with the 'comeback victory' criteria. My LP dropped to 700 while my opponent had 4000, yet I didn't get the bonus. Not the first time this has happened
Daemon Blitzkrieg 14days ago
It is just something I noticed with my Cereb/Spirit deck, thinking it was sucky but a given counter to gaining way over 10,000 LP back. XD
anoymous 15days ago
Well, I've figured it out. It's probably a bug. If you meet the comeback criteria, then increase your life points so that it goes above your opponents, you lose the bonus for whatever reason. It doesn't matter if you decrease their life points, but you can't increase yours above theirs. It's stupid but that's what it seems is happening

anoymous 15days ago
Yes, I recovered lifepoints, but how does that cancel the bonus? It was still a comeback victory by the criteria listed here. Under what specific circumstances is the bonus lost?
Daemon Blitzkrieg 15days ago
Did you recover your LP back to a certain point? Because doing so can kill that bonus.
anoymous 15days ago
Where is the list of cards that can get over 10,000?
anoymous 14days ago
You can use "Wicked flame Baou" to summon "Guardian Baou" Power it up with sword of deep seated, black pendant or other equip card. Guradian Baou gains 1000 ATK for each monster it battles and sends to the graveyard and also negates any monster effects
anoymous 15days ago
Isn't one. He lied when he wrote that. It's just Cerberus

No more deck out victory?

How do you get [draw]??
SourMongoose 28days ago
Victory By Effect Damage Only can also be achieved by dealing any amount of effect damage, then winning by deck-out.
anoymous 26days ago
I thought so. This is significant and should be added in
Midori 1/1/1970
If you lose a fight the points per Glossy card used becomes 50. I do not know about Prismatic cards.
lord2022 9days ago
it will be half as well so u get 100 point
Midori 1/1/1970
Special summon is 100 points (cards like Big Wave Small wave, Stray Lambs)
