Period July 6 - July 12

How to Play

1. Duel in a completely new way!

What is Special Duel?

Special Duel are Ranked Duels with certain conditions and restrictions to the Skills and Decks that you can use. Your rank placement is registered differently from your regular Ranked Duels placement, although the rankings and number of wins required to be promoted, remain the same. For example, you still need to acquire 4 wins to rank up from Platinum 5 to Legendary 1, and 5 consecutive wins to rank up from Legendary 3 to King of Games. Example scenario, if you are King of Games currently in regular Ranked Duels, you can still collect rank placement rewards from Special Duels since you will be starting the climb from Rookie rank.

2. Build a Legend Deck!

Legendary Decks

Legendary Decks are Decks specifically tailored to a particular Legendary Duelist, using Required and Optional Core Cards, and unique Legendary Duelist’s skills, as part of the Deck. The fact that it is mandatory to include these cards into your Legendary Deck (should you choose to play as that particular Legendary Duelist) makes certain Legendary Decks more advantageous than the others, because the Required or Optional Core Cards present more meta value and higher synergy with the latest tech / monster cards used prominently. For example, Masked Heroes have received wide players’ acceptance and usage currently, and it goes along well with Aster’s Legendary Deck, even when Destiny HERO - Plasma and Destiny HERO - Diamond Dude are the Required and Optional Core Cards to be included. This makes Aster’s Legendary Deck very advantageous over other Legendary Decks. Another example is Weevil’s Legendary Deck which requires you to include Insect Queen in the Legendary Deck, along with either Cocoon of Evolution or the Moth monster series as optional Core Cards. These cards must be included in Weevil’s Legendary Deck, and since all these cards are not competitive at all in the current meta, this makes Weevil’s Legendary Deck very unpopular and disadvatageous over other Legendary Decks. The key factors into customizing your Legendary Deck, are to take into consideration the Required Cards, and Optional Cards you need to have in that Deck, and analyse the synergy with the current popular monster effects/Spells/Traps, the possible combos which you can dish out, the relative strengths and weakness against other meta Decks, before you bring your customized Legendary Deck into Special Duels.

3. Duel in Special Duels at the PvP Arena!

4. Aim for King of Games!

Regarding Legendary Decks

Skill Allowed

Skills Allowed are unique skills that are only accessible via a particular Legendary Duelist. Skills play an important role and synergy to go along with your customized Legendary Deck. Some examples of popular Skills used are Beatdown, The Tie that Binds, Silent Duelist, Psychic Onslaught, Transcendent Crystals. You will not be able to use regular Skills such as Restart, Balanced, Draw Sense series skills.

Core Cards

Core Cards are divided into Required and Optional Core Cards. Required cards are cards that you must include at least 1 copy in your Legendary Deck. Optional Core cards are a pool of card options that you can choose from, and must be included into your Legendary Deck according to the number of copies written. For example, Yami Yugi’s Legendary Deck has Optional Cards (2) whereby you can choose any 2 copies of: Slifer the Sky Dragon, Dark Magic Curtain, Dark Magic Attack, Thousand Knives, Illusion Magic, to include in your Legendary Deck. If the Required Cards listed are also listed in Optional Cards list, then you can just include at least 1 copy of that card and have another choice from Optional Cards pool in your Legendary Deck. If there are multiple Required Cards listed in the Legendary Deck for that particular Legendary Duelist, you must include at least 1 copy of each Required Cards in your Legendary Deck.

Required Cards - Alternative Art are counted as well excluding Yugi / Arkana Dark Magician

Very sad event. Meet only a few original decks(DM decks with Yami/Arkana) else just specific decks(Pegasus Relinquish) or only Meta decks(SSA/FH/Amazoness/MH). With loaner decks this could have been fun out of meta BS.

I don't like the monster design (especially murmillo), but I like how GB works. I call it the Gladiator Shuffle (dance).

Yeah that's really nice. Especially with my Tea so I can run into def monster as I want w/o fear(okay only with very few effect monster/cards played during so). Yeah not everything is a beauty, but still they could draw them worse. (^.^)

The thing with Spellbooks is that the duels either end quickly (Turn 2 or 3) or end in the following century (usually against stall). I do feel Grass variants take a lot longer than Silent Spellbook though.

There are 2 ways to counter Aliens: Stop their A-Counters or overwhelm their resources (every deck's weakness). If you can't stop their A-Counters, aim for card advantage and play accordingly. If you can't make +s like Spellbook, Amazoness, Heroes, Fur Hire, etc, then your matchup against Aliens gets harder...so, that could be the reason you have a hard time against Aliens.

The oddest thing was that she did surrender in her turn after the one listed there where the draining shield was used. And I don't know why. With 4900 lp and a hand advatage over me, she could have waited to make a comeback.

I was trying to make a Full Destiny Hero deck with Plasma for the event. But the number of Fur Hires and Amazoness was disturbing. So i had to make a Fur Hire deck with Plasma as tech to reach KOG. #Feelsbadman

I have been going through this event at a slower pace (finished silver last night) in the hopes of meeting less fur hires and amazoness. There are higher ranking players (past KOG and legend) using character decks. I have only seen fur hire once so far. It was an Espa with Jinzo in the deck, but he quit when I started mask changing too much. But plasma with fur hire sounds awesome!

Admit it guys the event´s idea is kind of cool, but it is this brainless community that just ruined it because they just want easy wins.

Don’t hate the player, hate the game.

Konami could easily have enforced players to use enough of a certain card (rather than just literally one card, like Dark Magician for Yugi) or just straight up limited Amazoness & Fur Hire for the special duels. They didn’t.

They want to encourage players to be able to use the meta decks ‘cause they freshly bought them. Thus... (1/2)

... those players will get awards and wins. It positively reinforces people to purchase those cards.

Konami might want people to have fun, but they’re a money-grubbing company first. For sure they’ll make the rules slack enough for players to use meta decks, since those players are the ones who paid the most. They’ll support those the most.

Jaden said that he is already here. And that was awhile ago, too. So we have no idea where Zane has been hiding out in duel world all of this time, but late July cannot come soon enough for him because he must be getting too hyper without the duels. Xd

Seems like it will be a PvP were you will be forced to play cards that are actually used by the character you're controlling in the anime or manga. For example: you must make a Blue-Eyes deck for Kaiba, or a Toon or Relinquished deck for Pegasus.

There's nothing you can do. Even konami wished this to happen so they can get more money.

All you can probably do is stay lower rank to see less of meta decks or get better deck.

If would suggest Spellbook (if available). As consistent as Fur Hire decks are, they don't blend well with most of the other core cards...leading to bad hands.
Spellbook can blend with Silent Magician Core and Dark Magician Core, I reached KOG with Silent Spellbooks from Gold 2. I leveled up with Blue-Eyes but I couldn't deal with Fur Hire or Amazoness, so Silent Spellbooks was my next choice.

If you don't have Silent Magician, Dark Magician should make a good smoothie with Spellbook.

Seems like leveling up Aster to 45 and getting 3 Fires of Doomsday will finally be worth it.

I recommen using Destiny Hero Decider (because he can stall against high level monsters) and Dreamer (to protect Plasma from battle after being summoned)

You'll need to stall a turn to use Fires of Doomsday efficiently

I guess this event is proof that most character-related archetypes are lacking support. I mean, how can a card like Blue Eyes compete with the actual meta without getring any new support, such as Blue Eyes Twin Burst Dragon or Neo Blue Eyes Ultimate Dragon? Also, why is Champion's Vigilance still limited? It's the only thing that could make vanilla monsters competitive again, and a lot of those ace monsters are vanillas.

I got to Gold 2 with Blue-Eyes but couldn't deal with Amazoness and Fur Hire from there on...I would say generic support (splashable tech) would be more welcome. Following the example of Blue-Eyes, the problem is not that it can't produce a strong or dominant field, it's that the 3-6 tech cards that CAN be splashed are insufficient to consistently take down meta decks that have effect advantage.

What does splashing means? Most of time I notice kaiba with FH. Other characters are fine (most of time)

It means putting generic cards that works with any deck, into your deck.

I haven't seen any Fur Hire with Kaiba in this event...in regular PVP, Kaiba's Beatdown is a common skill used with Fur Hire.
