aren't u being shameless here? u dare differentiate between teenagers trolling adults, and adults having a "life" to care for, but isn't this a bit of shameless attitude for an "adult" like u to turn his tail between his legs and back off because YOU REFUSE TO LEARN from others because they are somewhat in their "teens"(assuming)? is that how u want adults to be perceived? lul...are u a joke?

I don't need luck my bods at thales seems not to care too much about simple grammar mistakes, I'm not refusing to learn just considering arguments over grammar petty and trivial so once again my good trolls goodbye

im not trolling. i'm just giving you honest advice. you should stay awake in your remedial english classes and learn that there's a space between punctuation and the next word. you say you don't refuse to learn, but remember, actions speak louder than words!

Have this trap card in my deck, and was using auto-duel vs a SD 45 duelist. The SD triggered the trap "Embodiment of Apophis", and auto-duel then triggered my set trap for floodgate on it...this sent Apophis back to the back row, face down. The auto-duel at this point would NOT attack the SD duelist, even though I had 3 monsters on the field vs none, and the only card on the SD duelists field was 'broken trap' in it's back row.

This card is dam broken when people have more than one in deck. Opponent can't do a thing, when one just spam this, it limit interaction to the lowest.

If you chain summon by any means, this card cannot be activated. Keep that in mind to play around it.

This card is bugged. Opponent summoned Van Dalgyon Dragon lord and I already had FGTH set (2 turns prior) and wasn't able to activate it upon Dragonlord being summoned. ''When a card is summoned'' my @ss -_-

When the card effect says "when"the summoning must me the last thing to happen When Van Dalgyon is summon he activates his effect so floodgate misses timeing.

Just now I use Van Dalgyon effect to special summon and opponent able to flip my van dalgyon face down, so no misses timing over here. FGTH chain to Van Dalgyon effect and after resolve it flip Van Dalgyon face down and then opponent took 1500 damage.

Thats because he used it before it chained. FGTH cannot chain into a link 3. If 2 is already prevalent, it does not work, as the summon must be the last thing to resolve. Its not bugged, it just works weird in a chain.

As the others said: If he summoned it in a chain you can’t do anything
