Yeah but Konami did an exellent job preventing to much powercreep at once. To this day we still don't have Man-Eater Bug.
Konami so cleverrr made Bonz event such that Dark Paladin is the best farm strategy but new players don't have it, so they will burn gems on Crimson Kingdom pack hoping to get one! poor souls!

It's summed up pretty well by YGOTAS... Tristan only dueled once, and died in the middle of it

Loving his skill "straight to the grave". Gives his zombie monsters an added boost. LV 8 so far playing as him since unlocking him yesterday.

Why it would be the worst?

We have the Rex one that only worth for Dinos, this one we can use Dino, Zombie and Rock. And we have a lot of good Zombie monsters.

Only 2 Kings of the Skull Servants (one of them at Lv 40)? Why?

Because it is broken in the current game

How? There's no easy way to send at least 3 Skull Servants/Kings to the graveyard, and they can't be special summoned by their own effect when destroyed by card effects. Far from broken...

Ihizu has a skill that turns all monsters in grave to sjull servant so yeah total broke

only the monsters of your opponent. So it doesn't affect your King of the Skull Servants
I don't know about others but I wasn't looking forward to this because Bonz is lame and his rewards are too. However, he has been very generous with dropping skills for other characters.

That's great. Only good skill I have got that I wanted was 3SD. Otherwise I got heavy starter, draw sense water, restart and draw sense high level for Kaiba. Draw sense light, lp boost both types, draw sense earth and draw sense spell trap for odion. Draw sense wind, hhg and lp boost for Mai. I wasn't farming but just levelling up a few characters. Now trying Yami to see if I can get destiny draw.

Great! I also got Restart for Kaiba during the Yami Marik event. I'm just glad that they give gems for the skills you already have if you get them again. I've lost count of how many times Aster got the life point boost B skill. XD

I will never understand why this character was included. He is a very minor insignificant character who only dueled, and lost, twice, not to mention his rewards are probably the lamest of all the LDs. Most random addition along with Pandora and the Labyrinth Brothers , but at least Pandora and LBs are good for something i.e. dark magician support and anti-magic arrows (Pandora) and useful skills and the three elemental gods (LBs)

Bonz doesnt have a skill to Start with Zombie World available. WHAT A DAMN JOKE!

You can get a copy of Zombie Word and a support for it for leveling up Bonz xD

One copy of Zombie world in your deck changes nothing.

You would have to use Planet pathfinder or something.

Even starting with the card would have been nice, but only throwing 1 copy into our decks change NOTHING.

Sucks that "Dawn of the Brains" is SCP only.
We SERIOUSLY needed it to keep the meta fresh.

Totally agree, a skill with Zombie world will render CA deck useless

They already did that with the nerf, it's like playing a REZD deck with 1 REZD in the deck

Does it say Crowler is obtainable or no dice for him either?

Where does it say Crowler is unlockable?

The Late October event. The blue letters say "obtain a new legendary duelist," and the quote below pretty much makes it a 99% chance of being Crowler.

You can always know if a duelist is unlockable by just reading the in-game announcements. If it says they're unlockable, they're unlockable. If not, then they're likely not.

Crowler is coming for sure since the anti magic deck is out. He will bring more anti trap card along with that darn Golem of his.
Hazy deck is effective for farming, tribute to trash can't target and he can get 4000 skull servant out if 3 in the grave so beast rising hazy to above 4000 and your laughing.

annoyingly though he does have twister, he ruined one of my farms cause I had discarded my other beast rising ad the 3rd was on bottom of deck!!!
