First I would like to say, the amount of gems I get is FANTASTIC! I just started DL today and Konami is showering me with SR/UR tickets, gems, $1 UR Sales, etc. That being said, what's with all of the complaints? If you don't like the game, uninstall crybabies!!! :O

The reason why Konami is nerfing so many gems is simple: they are lousy at understanding their customers. They put an absurdly high price for the purchase of packs of cards. To complete a large box, you would need more than $ 150, so to get all UR copies you would need more than $ 450! With this money, I could buy many non-virtual cards and I could use it without being prisoned in a single game mode. In addition, the meta in the TCG lasts much longer than in DL, so many cards that I bought in DL in 1 or 2 months could be of no use. That is: buying letters in DL does not worth, and therefore few people should make massive purchase of packages. This, of course, should not have pleased a big boss who wanted more sales.
What could Konami do to solve the problem? 1- Lower the price of the cards. 2- Increase the time they launch new boxes and thus make the bought cards worth more. 3. Forcing people to buy cards by nerfing gems. Needless to say, respectful companies would choose the first two options, even though they are the means that actually work. But Konami chose to go the way that took a lot of f2p games to the hole, as f2p players will still be f2p or just leave the game. And so another great game dies.
You guys can free to unistall.

Like you'd need any gems if you got Yubel and their card just build a bullshit deck around them and you're fine
Maybe Konami is going to add more game modes for gems or new ways who knows I wish I knew the reason why Konami nerfed the amount of gems. We get it could be cause of 5Ds there is many reasons so it's hard to say for sure.

Konami must always manage the number of gems they give us so they can make a healthy profit :)

Why do you think they lowered the gems could it be something good or bad?

After reading through Xenon's link, I would say it's neither good or's just balance. There are always high and low points and we need a lot of data to know exactly which direction the game is going. It's only a few months worth of data, but it does seem to support my arguments up until now.

I wonder how many people are dancing around at your 1 gem party.
It wouldn't surprise me at all if all of these people who keep talking about only wanting to pay money for the game and laughing at anyone who wants the regular gem amount back are actually free to play players (or moderate spenders) themselves and are just saying all of this because they want attention. Just ignore them.

Omg thank you! Im so tired of people justifying this! Yes there will always be worse and you can make a million excuses, but we can’t deny the game changed DRASTICALLY and for the WORSE not better which we have the right to complain about?

It is certainly worth a complaint. However, if someone doing that #I want my gems movement (or whatever it is called) thing, and making their player name that, also has 3 copies of tons of UR and SR cards and a gift box with 9999 gems, then I might not take them seriously. Unless those 9999 gems are all they have left. Then they might have a problem...
You don't see us new players complaining about the gems! If you no like, uninstall!!!

Few months later when you finish leveling up characters for easy gems we will see you crying rivers ^_^
Hey, you guys complained about the 300 Gem removal from Zane's Level-Up Rewards, the Duel-A-Thon gives us 250 for just completing the 11600 points! That's only 50 shy of the 300 they took away! :D

It was a joke, lol. I actually do like playing things on hard mode but that's aside from the point, I don't mean to's just a little sarcasm, I do apologize if I offended you.
This can't be true...
Again reduced gems???
From 20/50 to 15/40 to now 10/25???
And even the longterm gems reduced to 50 from 100?
This really become more and more Duel-A-Trash. -.-***

I play the game since November/December. I just pointing out the facts so that newer/newbies know that it was way better before so they don't get tricked by the 'generous' looking amount they get within a few weeks.
I did my part on Steam and downvoted the game. Have you done such things(Steam/Appstore/whatever) to show the devs that they do something wrong?
