Just made it into Top 100 EU and finished on point ! :) So I only played this Red-Eyes (just changed tech cards e.g. the warriors and tried something like Sphere Kuriboh, Koa'ki ice, bad aim or 2x econ), felt like 3 Power of the Guardians is very important and there was just no space for Cosmic Cyclone after all and considering it's not so useful in some situations I just ignored the back row removal.
Retrodragon over Wyvern, because I didn't want to have "useless" cards in my hand (so also 3 Retro to have some kick out material for the insights and being able to use these searches to thin out even more) and no buster blader along with only 2 red-eyes b. dragon for the very same reason.
And finally the shield warrior for the very first turn in case you don't have other good cards in hand it's at least a good chance to help your slash survive to turn 2; this along with 2 swordswomen so I have a good chance of using them out of the deck for the fusion and if it happens I get them onto my hand, I can still surprise the enemy and this got also good synergy with power of the guardians (won my last duel only through the swordswoman & guardian power equip)
And Sealed Tombs is way better than beatdown (in this meta for sure) so I only used Ishizu and Sealed Tombs - however, I don't know why Crow was chosen by Konami to show up as my profile-icon in the rankings instead of Ishizu ;)
Hope you could reach your WCS goals as well and have a great day,
I used these two decks. Metaphys is really good against the tier decks, only weaknees than it's a little slow.. When I survived the opponent's second turn, than I win the duels very high winning percentage. I had to change at one point, but it gave me a great boost. I recorded the statistics, the last day was over 64% victory.
I was in top 100 at EU before 6 hours end of the event. I went to sleep, and I set alarm for the last hour. I woke up and my 2000 points advantage has been 2000 points disadvantage. That's oke, just two win... I won the first, then lost the second. And there was 4 loose in a row... 2 win, lose 2... Unfortunately, it was not enough time to bring the top 100 back. So I dropped 41k to 35k in the last hour.
Lol this is by far the best meta we've had. I'm seeing a lot of different decks lately: Subterrors, Metaphys, Blue-Eyes, Red-Eyes, Koa'ki Meiru, buster blader, amazoness, U.A. and even fur hires. The game has improved a lot.
Some top players got their account suspended and removed from WCS rank because of account sharing during the RRQ event. Poor guys, you should have not been caught by Konami if you let your friend sleep in your house to play your OWN device instead of sharing your account to be played on different device
Very easy to abuse since Konami didn't limit the number of duels in this event. The only difference is some abuser are smart enough not to login into multiple device. They played as a team (the account's owner play at morning til evening, his friend play at night) using only ONE device
