Okay, Irrelevant fits you as a name, since calling you 'anon' would be 2 cool 4 school for you and I wouldn't want to insult the other kind, sweet anons on this site (this is no offense to you guys :) ) So begone, because you wouldn't like it when I'm angry, at least I don't think so.

For the record, you misspelled a couple words again. But since you were the instigator in all this, you probably don't care, right? You and your parrot pets need to stfu and take a chill pill already. Oh and also apologize for all this bullshit, so cut it out and do it already, shit

What is a reasonable counter to this card. This card is overused and in about 95% of all decks I face in KOG rank. They all seem to have 2 if not 3 copies and its getting a bit out of hand. Most of my game are lost due to floodgate over and over and over.

Sergeant Electro can be used to bait out Flood Gates (to prevent it being used on other monsters or force your opponent to take a gamble if they have multiple backrow and not hitting Floodgate with Electro's effect).

Other than that, there are several Spell and Trap Cards options available that either lockdown or destroy facedown backrow.

So even if someone got it dropped and you are a free to play player, they count as a "p2w noob"? Nice logic mate

If you juse more than 1 or max 2 in your deck then you're a certified degenerate who abuses broken cards, period. If you really think this card is not OP then might as well consider ending it now.

But according to the op it makes you degenerate. The op probably also thinks that people who run mirror wallet or srh are degenerate too.

Not a criminal lol, just a degenerate who abuses broken cards like all of us in KoG ;), we're here because we had access to better decks, being either F2P or P2W.. obviously paying makes it reach faster. You're delusional if you think otherwise. You got attention and an honest answer. Happy now?

This is the worst card in the pack. Now this is something that actually deserves a 3 or a 4 out of 10, since basically I'm bronze rank 3 player who whines at people for making simple mistakes. Poor souls the ones that get this crap.
