Sooo guys..after playing for 9 months, today I decided to delete this game. I was already thinking about it for a while but this week's event covinced me the game isn't worth playing . I've built a great deck, and was super excited about it. I went from plat 1 to plat 5 with 16 wins in 18 games. I had a win streak of 14 and only lost to toons. I t looked like I came up with an own deck that will wasily take me to kog. The next 3 days tho my win rate dropped to like 40%, and I went back to plat 1(I had a win streak of 8 in this period too tho). So that made me realise how stupid the ranked system is. Skill doesn't matter almost at all. It.s almost only about luck. Your starting hand, the cards you draw, Your opponent's cards, your opponent's starting hand. I even think now, kog is for those players that are lucky enough to get good matchups and starting hands. I don't believe it's because they play well. You can reach kog or be stuck in plat 1 with the exact same deck. Luck plays a way bigger factor in this game than it should in my opinion. And this weakness of the game is even more emphasised by the ranked duel system. Getting 5 wins in a row requires a fckin lot of luck, no matter how good your deck is. You can have the godliest deck and may still not be able to get to kog just because of how much luck kog requires. I really think the current format needs some serious change. it should be rather like win 4 games outta the last 5 and promote. This consecutive win thing is bullshit. Win rate should be the thing that matters, not the luck that is required to win 5 games in a row
Some more things I wanted to point out:
-the amount of gems you can obtain after leveling up all of your characters to lvl 30 is ridiculously low. The game should reward more experienced players but instead they put experienced players in a disadvantage.
The RNG system is totally fucked up and totally takes motivation away. In farming events like the current one, you should get 1 random sr card after you accumulated 50.000 duel assessment points for example. They need to take out this bullshit luck factor that puts many players in a disadvantage. some get a sr for 1000 points, others don't even get one for 9000
There are many other things like shitty daily rewards, the shitty consecutive log in bonus, but they aren't nearly as bad as those 3 things I've pointed out previously. I might come back one day after they sort out these things, but currently this game upsets me too much. I still care about making it better tho, that's why I wanted to share my thoughts w you guys. Let me know whatcha think
I understand your frustration and all, but seriously, Yu-Gi-Oh! has always been heavily dependent on luck, matchups, and starting hands. That's nothing new, and there's really not much they could do to this game to change that.
I totally agree with you bro. Its all luck based, and since its a speed duel, it heavily relies on luck, there is very low chance for comebacks, if the format changes to normal duel (5 monster/spell zone, 8k hp) the element of luck is reduced and makes room for more skill plays.. this is my one and only wish for duel links, gems rng and other matters i dont really mind
Only way to make it not 90% luck is to let ppl chose their starting hands. Cards are and will always be 90% luck. I stopped playing competitive in this because it's not worth the stress. Lots of cards like senju for ex. Will help reduce luck requirements but no matter what. When u get to high level the best deal will win every time or 1 deck will be a counter deck to the other.
I know luck will always play a huge role in this game. It is just that it could be soooo easily reduced by changing the ranked system. An example: what if the game would consider the last 6 games you've played. to get to plat you would need 3 wins outta 6, the order doesn.t matter. To get to legend 4 wins out of the last 6 games, and kog 5 wins outta 6. My opinion, it would help a lot
Since you're not playing anymore, can i have your account? Btw yea, the ranked system's is rekt. Feel free to email me at email@example.com about your account id and password. Thx and im looking forward to it :)
Guys I.m not saying it is only about luck, but it certainly plays a lot bigger role than skill. I did a test: started using a deck that was just posted here under kog decks. The deck was from this season. The guy made it to kog, i made it only to plat 5. So yeah it is very luck based
Playing a deck uses a fuckload of skill. It's like chess. There's a lot of moves you have to consider. That's typical gold/plat mentality. Now i bet you're in denial that you're a gold/plat scrub. You are because you don't know how to play. Period.
Of course there is some luck involved in the game.
But I want to tell you something:
I always copied decks from this webside and I never got higher than plat 2 in all seasons.
But yesterday I made my own deck. It's a mix of a burn/control deck with Burning Land, Lava Golem and a lot of Kuribohs. I finaly made it into KOG, the first time ever. I got there in about 45 Minutes.
Lol guys says playing a deck in yugioh requires as much skill as playing CHESS????You clearly never played chess lol. Most stupid comparision ever dude. Chess requires 1000x the skill yugioh does. To that player j kid: you are on the best way to be considered the most retarded and annoying person in history. ;)
Also to the guy saying yugioh requires a fuckload of skill: I've reached legend 3, I'm not gold or plat. Also calling others scrubs because they aren't higher than plat makes me believe you're a retarted and ignorant cunt, who sucks in life and that's why he calls others names ;)
