Chain is so unfair since the first effect will be the last resolved it has no logic in it

yeah Im pretty sure they did that low key to nerf dakini because theres no logical explanation for it to work that way. They actually did a bunch of balancing in yesterdays update. I dont mind them balancing but it sucks that they dont give updates on what theyre nerfing because it sucks finding out in the middle of a duel that stuff doesnt work the same way anymore.

There was no nerf; this is how it's always worked. You're just bad at resolving chains.

The limitations that should be done are towards CAs and Ninjas, Econ has existed since the game began and we still see a variety of Decks, now we only see CAs and Ninjas thanks to glorified Youtubers showcasing their ranked and KC cup duels, more copycats just surfaced out of nowhere and currently even a new player can kick ass with a half-baked CA deck, forget about even farming for other cards.

I remember when he gave me my third one after I used one to take away his monster and kill him with a direct attack. That was a little too coincidental. XD

When you had to sacrifice your soul to Seto Kaiba before there was even any pvp tickets for it and Mokuba coming along to give us one because he thought his big bro was taking this too far. XD

Greys put Block Attack and Stop Defense on their deck instead of this card.

I got Enemy Controller fighting Kaiba @Level 10. And you can also get this from PVP tickets. Someone need to update the descriptions.
I literally cant believe they didnt mention the treeborn frog + enemy controller combo. If you have no spell/traps on your side of the field you can special sum treeborn from your grave during your standby phase. On reaction to summon activate econ from your hand, sacrificing treeborn. Since its still during your standby phase treeborn reactivates from the grave, summoning himself again (thats how it worked in real yugioh, not sure if duel links nerfed this combo)
Did they make changes to econ? When taking control of an opponents monster with effect #2, I cant change it from defense to attack and then attack my opponent anymore... and, a different opponenet just activated it before battle phase and I wasnt able to put my card back to attack. Has it always been like this or is this new?

+not even normal summon ..but I thought you shouldn't confuse in that case

It might be the case that the opponent has a card that prevents his monsters from being targeted by (magic) card effects. For example, this is what Lord of D does for all dragon type monsters - this cost me a battle once, learned my lesson a hard way :D

No, he can steal it and he can't change its battle position. // I don't think it's about which monster assume he should know that monster/read that it can change battle position or not. This is more than a month anyway. He's long gone :P
only noobs get angry cuz other people want this card banned

Its a reasonable card. Cards that shd be limited are srh,tribute to doom,eliminating the league. These cards remove monster for almost nothing.
