    If anything, pendulum monsters enhanced older decks as it gave them ways to get big monsters on the board much faster and at a much lower cost. Link monsters on the other hand have pretty successfully killed off more than half of all older decks as now you only have ONE monster zone that you can summon extra deck monsters from. You can circumvent this however, by using link monsters which have their link markers. Any monster zone these link monsters point to become a monster zone that you can special summon monsters from the extra deck to. This forces ALL decks that rely on the extra deck to make room for link monsters (BUY OUR NEW CARDS, KOONAMI NEEDS THAT $$$) or just perform awfully. Many decks, like my heroes, can't really afford the extra ED space and end up taking out otherwise staple cards as a result. Koonami has tried to "fix" this problem through legacy support, giving older decks new link monsters tailored specifically to them, but even in that case you're still using a deck of which's goal isn't to summon link monsters, and since you have to summon them first due to the new rules, a lot of them end up functioning more slowly and more clunky as they can't really produce the extra resources needed for that extra ED summon. Keep in mind that not all decks have been affected this harshly, especially a lot of pendulum decks thanks to the Metalfoes Electrumite link monster, but a significant majority of older archetypes have been negatively impacted in some way. So in short, you need to have link monsters to stay relevant (unless you run shit like monarchs, nekroz, dark magician etc), even if you have the link monsters you still need to make room for them, and even if you do all that your deck will most likely STILL be taking a hit as these older decks weren't designed to make link monsters, they were designed to do whatever they were designed to do.

    It's just business as usual for KOONAMI, but this generation it's worse than ever.

      That sounds truly horrible. Holy fuck, why would anyone do that?

        Because koonami wants that $$$$$$$$$$$$$$, why else?

        Also, to be fair, link summoning is by far the easiest summoning method to date, but still, you're going to need to pull out 2+ monsters in addition to whatever else you need to do, and as I previously said not all archetypes are both able to and can afford to bring out the extra resources needed to link summon.

          Well whatever dumbass decided that creating Yugioh! Vrains was somehow gonna be the most intriguing way to go didn't exactly do anybody a favor. At this point I just think the guy wants to see Yugioh dead tbh. Think about it. How many times has Takahashi said he doesn't want to make another Yugioh! series and people basically forced the notion down his throat. Really I think he's just trying to kill Yugioh. I mean of course he would know these cards would actually be turned into a format.

            Either that or Konami wanted to debilitate most decks to make people buy way more stuff

              Takahashi doesn't work on the anime or any of the new manga after the original, iirc. He only really worked on DSoD.

                  Vanguard got a reboot, and remade alot of the newer cards, and made a format that banned G units. Anyone wanting to try it once the Android game comes out?

                    Since we're not talking about Yugioh any more, I just wanna point out that the Pokemon card game seems really fun. I just played a few rounds with my roomate for the first time, I'd give it a thumbs-up.

                    I want to keep MTG alive though. Everybody play that.

                      Yeah. They will be until the end of this next set, I think.

                      Or forever if you're just playing with your buds.

                      Alright. Also, did they ever get a Command deck built for it or...?

                      most of them are, to make Blue-Eyes viable.

                        I've gone strictly to Goat Format, now. It's arguably the most skill based format in all of Yu-Gi-Oh! and has a slower pace to it, which is nice.

                        Also, I've been meaning to ask Souls what happened, here. How did you get banned, my friend?

                            Yes, it did. That's just an older picture that I found.

                            Duelingbook is the new place to play Yugioh, these days.

                              Why isn't Yugi a feared serial killer by season 1 episode 1 did the characters just ignore season 0?

                              its been reborn as Dueling Book, lol. also heard about something called Dueling Nexus, idk what that looks or works like tho

                                ...So, has there been chaos support recently in the past two years? Like, enough to make an extremely difficult synchro possible? I'm looking thru Google Images for a Nexus avi to use, and already I've come across at least 4 Chaos Goddess pics I'd never seen before. If there's been support that makes her more useable I'd love to know about it lol, she is one of my all-time favourites

                                Comment


                                  If you count Harpies, then yes. They have some good support coming out soon.

                                  And I'm sure Chaos Goddess is easily summonable these days thanks to all of the modern cards that each have 4 good effects printed on them. Aha~

                                  Even though I play Goat Format these days, I still occasionally play Shinobirds in the modern format. They aren't very good, but I enjoy them.

                                    Gonna try to go back playing this just for fun, cause being competitive is way too much of a massacre.

                                      Going to work on Red-Eyes as well, because it's one of my favorite cards/Decks to use.
