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.

what about summoning divine monsters (have to have been originally divine; for instance a swamp mirrorer trap card summoned as divine monster doesn’t count towards this)
Optional
Does anyone know if tokens count as monsters destroyed? I think not

On a related note, repeatedly attacking apophis when NPC has tiki gives 10 monsters destroyed, too (and the AI always chooses to re-set it, which is a cheap way to stall while setting up your 10000+ hit against It's All Traps during a double gate key event).

Best is when the AI has Tiki and 2 Apophis.

You can keep attacking Apophis without having to worry about other backrow cards, since Tiki makes the two Apophis stuck to the field, permanently locking their S/T zones.

In this game words may have different meanings for example how a fusion summon isn’t a special summon but in reality it is. The game can have different terminology so don’t judge someone for not yet having that knowledge. You wouldn’t want people calling you an idiot if you just started learning to build cars.We Need this world to be a better place! YOUR AMAZING for attempting to help!

Brings it something, like a better chance of a UR/SR, when I get a High score about 10.600 ?

Very technically, in that you have more rewards and so more chances. Each reward has the same chance still though.

So it brings nothing. 8000. Not more or less.

TIP:BETTER REWARDS Reply
You have a higher chance when battling higher level AI players or LD’s. Pay attention and test it if you want duel 5 times a lv10 then a lv40.Happy To Help!

Does special summoning a fusion monster count as performing a fusion summon?

I agree, also a square is a perfect rectangle lol. If you don’t know what your taking about shut up

A fusion summon is ALWAYS a special summon lmao

The issue here is that there is a difference between special summoning a fusion monster, and fusion summoning a fusion monster.

Basically, if you special summon a fusion monster using anything whose card text does not explicitly call it as a "fusion summon", then it's not a fusion summon.

Exactly, so your thinking to literally because we all think of the definition of special being unique or different. Which leads to the conclusion that a fusion summon must be a special summon but in the terminology of the game it isnt.

I saw a match that their lp was over 60000 how could this happen?

Probably something like an Aromage deck with Nutrient Z, Draining Shield, and Aegis of Gaia. That's only like 21k plus something like 14k from Aroma Garden after a long duel and whatever Draining Shield can get.

The Ra-Kiseitai deck can reach enough LP to give Ra its max 65,355 ATK.

Summoning a DIVINE card gives 1000.

If you use Yami Marik's new skill with Ra, it's not hard to get Perform a Tribute Summon, LP on the Brink, 9999+ damage, and DIVINE bonus in one fell swoop.

Looks like Glossy cards are only worth 50 points now, not 100.

You didn't lose or? Because this half the appearance bonus(glossy/prismatic). What I recognized is, that set glossy/prismatic monster don't count until they are flip summoned from you(if destroyed by opponent, they don't count too).
<< Anonymous(Xenon)

Just to add, if you used a glossy/prismatic card as fusion material from hand, or discard the glossy/prismatic card from your hand to pay a card's cost, it also won't be counted as playing a glossy/prismatic card.

dont forget exodia gives the special victory with 3000 points

I no longer get comeback victory if my LP is lower than my opponent's at the beginning of the final turn before winning. It show up occasionally and I can't figure how to meet the condition. Anybody knows if it has changed? Also Prismatic now gives me only 100 DP

Did they remove the Played Glossy Card points? I'm not getting it anymore!
