  1. Yu-Gi-Oh Duel Links is relatively new free to play mobile game that offers a different type of dueling experience. Duel Links differs from traditional Yu-Gi-Oh in the following ways: - The card pool is much smaller. For instance, there are currently no Tuners, Xyz, or Pendulum monters. - It uses the Speed Duel format, which differs in the following ways: There is no MP2. Your turn ends after the Battle Phase. Only 3 Monster Card Zones Only 3 Spell/Trap Zones Start with 4 cards. Start with 4000 Life Points. Minimum and Maximum Deck Size Halved (20-30 vs. 40-60) 5 Card Extra Deck - Each duelist has a variety of "Skils" they can use to swing the duel in their favour. They are unlocked by levelling the character up (which uses a similar Duel Assessment System as the old Game Boy and DS games). Some examples of skills are that Mai can see the top card of her deck at all times and Mako starts the duel with Umi on the field. Gameplay is quick due to the Speed Duel format, but there are very few decks designed to create unbeatable fields or OTK (the one exception I can think of is a Cyber Stein deck, but the duelist needs to be under 1000 LP for it to go off). Here's is a basic (probably not optimized) template for what's considered the 'best' deck: Dino Beatdown (Rex Raptor; Skill puts Jurassic World into play at the start of the duel) 3 Two-Headed King Rex 3 Crawling Dragon #2 3 Jerry Beans Man 3 Order to Charge 3 Reinforcements 2 Twister 2 Michizure 1 Shard of Greed While I don't wnat to make an entire deck-building guide in the OP, here are some examples of other strong generic cards in the format: - Wonder Balloon - Enemy Control - Riryoku Field (meta tech due to an Equip variant of Dinos) The game currently has three sets in rotation. In the near future, two of those will rotate out and two more will come in. That being said, this is not a rotation game. Like with the regular Yu-Gi-Oh! game, you'll be able to use old cards even when they aren't directly available from packs in the store any longer. They have made room for a ban list, but no cards currently sit on it. So, my purpose for making this thread: is anyone else playing the game? What have been your impressions so far? If there are other people playing, I'd be happy to talk about deck strategies or duel against you. ---- Edited in: My tier list looks something like: - Dinosaur Kingdom - Naturia - Rituals (most variants) - Bazoon - Umi - Weevil - Clown Control - Fae - Cyber Stein OTK I don't have a large enough sample with most of the decks to feel confident, though. Edit by mark: We now have a Discord chat for duel links as well. https://discordapp.com/invite/010LERig7M1mW4mNi
  2. :thinking:
  3. *Official Mafioso Post* Mafia has a couple of really important things that go into successful games. A sense of community, the ability to make memorable plays, and above all, good theming and flavour. I've noticed a lot of people really underestimate the amount of work hosts do to make it happen. My proposed solution is to make this game MadLibs mafia. The first time each player posts for a day phase, they must include 100 words of flavour that starts off by relating to the previous flavour post. Failure to do so will result in negative 12 godzillion rep and a 3 game ban.
  4. ps petition for new mafia section motto:
  5. Permanent ban from duelingnetwork
  6. i attack this idea people can and do change over time, whether they want to or not
  7. vanilla town claims are actually just awful and you should die for them tbh
  8. Warning: i have not read past page 7 in the thread and have not read any of the aftergame posts but want to point out someone said something like 'markus posted a fake rxn to the modkill' when solstice had a clearly much worse post of the same thing
  9. I think it would be more appropriate to repost the signups after matrix6 ends because the same people may not want to play
  10. 18 Players Closed Setup Full Claiming Some amount of flavour probably (if anyone has a link to where i can watch the original movie again hit me up) Thinking I'll go for the throwback 24/24 phases if everyone won't be super mad about it. Quota is 4. Friendly reminder that the last game I ran inserted myself as a neutral player with a wincon that involved modkilling you.
  11. i have a cold so i am going to binge this i am on like episode 2 there is a really interesting camera change to ursula when they start talking about chariot if this is the series' big twist i am going to be really disappointed edit: finished up to episode 20 still think lotte looks like a male /shrug
  12. If someone wants to jump ahead and do a smaller game instead I wouldn't mind. Pushing the limit of the player base with no subs and having people that will be knowingly inactive probably doesn't make the best game, even if we do get one more to sign up here.
  13. i mean this was entirely my expectation ngl
  14. No problem. ---- This puts us back to needing one before game start.
  15. I am at work. Game will start tomorrow. I'll assume Silver is playing and if not I'll just modkill him it is easy. Thoughts on sending role pm via discord/facebook?
  16. Psh. Sorry kids, but you can't strike what you can't reach. How can you ever hope to compare to my speed when I enter 'Lean Forward and Put My Hands Straight Out Behind My Back Run' position.
  17. Get a red hat that says "MANGA" and see how many people think it is "MAGA"
  18. is the katana thing just an extension of the weird "sword" jokes sayaka made when she first joined? i assume it is just an ironic euphemism?
  19. antag said the same thing
  20. beast has given me direction on what he would want a 16 player version to be
  21. i have it at 1. nelrick 2. zp 3. islickz 4. 2k17 5. gemstone 6. francis 7. wunter 8. fiant 9. soph 10. rei 11. tyranno 12. zapp 13. broke 14. malcolm [15. silver? 16. crei? 17. solst?] with crei/solst being likely no's
  22. @Markus @Cunning mastermind i dont believe you post video of using katana
  23. I thought for sure this was a boosh game and Logic had the role you mention here. Maybe it came up twice? I specifically remember boosh making comments WHILE being the game host, about whether or not he rigged it to give chey the role
  24. Are you sure this wasnt a boosh game?
  25. the high of winning internet arguments, naturally
