I think I understand how the updated Balance skill works now. You are given a percentage of the type of cards that will go in your starting hand. So let's say you have a 20 card deck with 15 monsters and 5 spells. That means you have a 75% chance of obtaining a monster card and a 25% chance of obtaining a spell card. Unlike the old balance skill, where this setup gives you 100% chance of having 3 monster cards and 100% chance of having 1 spell card, this change means you have more randomness and your deck will no longer be as consistent as it used to.
That kinda sucks tbh. Haha

I've used a balanced fusion deck of 15 monsters and 5 spells and pulled a full hand of monster every now and then. I don't really have the time to write things down, but that's the conclusion I came to.

That doesnt make sense because that is just mathmatically the odds of opening those cards to begin with lol?

Multiple tests I did showed high level of randomness for 4th card, lower for 3rd card, minimal for 2nd card and almost non existent for 1st card. One would think that by running 14 monsters in a CA deck you would get one monster hand with a high chance of 2. However after about 39 duels got several hands of 1 monster and 3 spells. By 60+ got a full spell hand with a monster on the top of deck.

Considering that I just came to the ironic (but expected)conclusion that balance is now way too imbalanced to be trusted as an skill. I'd recommend it only for handless decks or similar stuff that play mixed monsters, spells and traps since it is almost guaranteed that you will get 1 monster at some point of the 1st or second turn (rarely).

The "new" balance is absolutely worthless of an ability.
From one of the best to useless.
I can get random draws without wasting my ability like that too.

Using a 10 monsters / 10 trap-spells deck, and it's okay.

5 monster balance sucks. Alot of times I can't get a single monster.

Yeah, I know what you mean. Maybe adding one or two monsters is enough... But you won't have always 1 monster + 3 spell/trap.

Anyone know what exactly was nerfed? It seems to work pratically the same way as it always has.

So in a way there's no point running this skill anymore since it defeats the purpose of being balanced.

Play 1 cerberus and 19 spells using this new balance skill, starting hand 4 spells no cerberus and next 2 draws also.
This is not balance fucking konami. You're idiot or what, fucking chance the name if it's not balance.

With one monster in a 20 card deck, even with balance, it's difficult to have it in your starting hand. You should have 5 monsters (1/4 of your deck) to be almost certain to have 1 in your starting hand. Use Draw - Low level instead.

I don't remember a time given just the date, seems entirely possible that it hasn't been changed yet. Best way to check is to see if creator changed, and apologies if that was already done.
