Duel Links is NOT based on the game Kaiba made in the Mange. Rather its based of the game Kaiba made in the most recent movie. Dont you dare argue this truth with me, go back and watch the movie and hear what Kaiba calls it.

1: The Most Recent Movie is part of the Manga Canon, not the Anime Canon
2: Duel Links is not based on the Game in either the Original Anime or Manga. It is based of the game in the VRAINS Anime
3: Kaiba calls it the Neuron VR System, that has nothing to do with Duel Links
4: Saying "Dont you dare argue this truth with me" is not an argument, it just makes you an asshole
Supposedly, Yami Yugi would never have lost to Rafael if he hadn't used the Seal of Orichalcos. It's a script way to give the moral lesson "If you hadn't done something bad, you wouldn't have lost. But you did, so here are the consequences".
Yugi Muto was the only one who legitimately defeated the pharaoh without any excuse from the script behind.
But seriously... People have to understand since GX, Yu-Gi-Oh! no longer has "fillers". This was true when Duel Monsters was no more than a manga adaptation like all the others. But since the franchise grew and expanded, things have become very different.
The DM anime created its own universe, independent of the manga, and for better or worse, this universe became the main base for the products.
To have some characters from Waking the Dragons will be awesome! The updates on characters like Mai or Joey were awesome!
Lets not talk about including decks from Dartz and his team...
I think this will take time though... there are so many characters not available from previous episodes not even appearing, so it would take time till Dartz
