Garbage! No prisma!!
This just showed the honesty of KONAMI to their customers. Old players cannot disable the old reward cards. So yeah, I had lots of fun keep getting garbage over and over. Here's what I got form completing every stage 3 times.

Come on man /:
You are complaining before the end of the event with 7 days

And now while there is still 3 days
I am pretty sure that you got at least 2 starlight road

If they gave us all the cards early
Then the game will be boring

hmm.. my point is to show the ugliness of RNG that Konami have set to get new UR card. Until now, I have spent more than 45,000 coins to open, still got non from reward.

What does that mean? let assume I open 1 pack at the time(30 coins) 45,000/30 = 1,500. That means I opened the pack 1,500 times, still get non Starlight road? so the chance to get it is less than 0.000067% You ok with dat?

"F2P", ah ah ! :p
I can't get my third copies of Unity and Prime, what a pain...
I enjoyed this event. However, maybe I am just unlucky, but when playing against the Weevil team, his skill puts his insect cards most of the times on top of my deck, or very close if not on top.
I built a deck that makes farming the Dark Magic Cup a breeze. The core idea is extremely simple. Use two different Dark Magician decks together, stomp the enemy with the synergy, and stall until you can get Ra on the field. You can use the Dark Magician support cards to clear the field right before summoning it, and attack directly right after. I'm using Marik's Power of the Tributed to ensure that Ra has at least 5000 attack. Make sure you duel the Lv.20 enemies. You'll still have several thousand over 8k points, and you won't have to deal with their annoying skills.

this must be your first tag team event.

We use the old style, everything the same except no Ra but use last gamble style for farming 8k constantly.

It's a good counter especially with treachourous trap hole with a free stardust dragon. It's not the best card but they've had far worse cards as ultra(blazing impachi)
