I agree, for some guys believe being someone who doesn't spend cash gives them the right to threat everyone like crap and to be somehow 'untouchable'. They also CRY A DAMN RIVER as soon as they lose a duel.
Not really. It looks a lot higher that it really is coz there was a season when ranked victories did not reset and that was also the time when WCS was held. I dueled like crazy that time to qualify for Worlds but only got 30th place ish. Unless there's a huge event like WCS, I barely spend any time in the game nowadays. I usually get KoG first week and then chill for rest of the season.
If you look at his PVP duels, it only adds up to 4151 duels so assuming he is not so good and only has around 60% win rate, he would only get an average of 200 victories per season as he only played 12 seasons. And that's not counting extra duels from events like WCS and KC Cup. There was also a time when the victory count didn't reset so that's probably another reason.
Original. If someone comes up with an original deck that turns out really good, it will be copied and will eventually become meta and it will not be original anymore. If you want each and every one to be original, you are at the wrong game.
You can farm gems from events, character level ups, rewards for winning in ranked matches and battling duelist (lvl40) at the gate with a farm deck. If you're already playing Geargia, it can farm using winged dragon of Ra, as geargia have an easy time special summoning 3 monsters on the field and keeping control. Marik's skill adds their attack to Ra. With a little life gain you're above 9999 dmg.
