Welcome to Duelingbook!

About Duelingbook

In July 2016, everyone's favorite Yugioh simulator website, Dueling Network, was closed indefinitely. This left the community with a void that has since then never been filled. That is until now. Duelingbook is a website that has all the features of Dueling Network, plus many more. Here, you will be able to duel just like you would on DN, as well as network with other users in many different ways. This article will explain some of the new features, as well as some differences from DN

Status Updates

Upon connecting to Duelingbook, the first thing you will see are other users' status updates they've posted. You can post a status update by scrolling down to the bottom and typing in your status in the text box. You can choose to post a new status, or you can reply to an existing status. When you reply to another status, all other users apart of that status will receive a notification. You can like and unlike a status by clicking the thumbs up button.

Profile Comments

When you view a user's profile, you can scroll down to the bottom to post a comment on their profile. Like status updates, you can reply to other users' comments. They will receive a notification when you do so. After posting a comment, you can delete it if needed. By default, anyone can post a comment to your profile. You can change this in Settings. You can view all of your comments in the Comments room.

Profile Songs

All users can choose to have a profile song on their profile. To do so, you'll need a link to an mp3 file. You can fill out your profile song information in Settings. You can choose whether or not to always play profile songs when viewing a user's profile.

Social Media

On your profile, you can have social media buttons that link to whatever social media accounts you have. You can edit your social media links in Settings.

Messages

For many users, DN's private messaging system was the reason they logged into the site each day. It provided for a super easy, really simple way to send and receive private messages. Duelingbook's messaging system works the exact same way. All messages are stored, so you'll be able to read any messages you've sent or received no matter how long ago it was. It is possible to message users that are not online. When you do, they will receive that message the next time they log in. In the Messages room, you can view all the users you've ever messaged. You can also search and filter messages, making it really easy to find whatever you're looking for.

Follow Users

On DN, you had the option to add any user as a friend, which put their username at the top of the Onine Users list when they were online. Duelingbook's Follow User button does just that. Users will not know if you are following them, so feel free to follow whoever you want discreetly. You can view all users you're following in the Followed Users room, whether they're online or not.

Add Friend

When you click the Add Friend button on a user's profile, a friend request is sent to that user. If they accept the request, you will each show up in each others' friends list on your profiles. All users can view who you're friends with. Depending on a user's settings, some features such as profile comments and adding users to a group chat are only possible if the other user is your friend. If you are frozen, you are only allowed to message users who you're friends with. When you receive a friend request, you will receive a notification. You can view all of your received and sent friend requests in the Friend Requests room. Once you are friends with a user, either of you can delete the other as friends.

Blocking Users

If you want to prevent a particular user from messaging you, you can use the Block User function to do so. You can only block a user who has messaged you at some point, and only if they sent the most recent message. The reason for this is to prevent a user from sending a rude senseless message to someone, then blocking that person without even giving them a chance to respond. If you block a user, you can later unblock them. If someone blocks you, only they can unblock you. If you block a user, they will be removed from your friends list. They will also not be able to leave you profile comments, add you to groups, or reply to your status updates.

Group Chat

In a group chat, all users apart of a group can exchange messages between each other. To join a group, double click one from the Browse Groups item in the Group Chat Tools section. When you create a group, you have the option to make it public or private. If it's public, any user will be able to view it while browsing groups. If it's private, only users who are added to the group can view it. You can leave any group just as easily as joining it. By default, any user can add you to one of their groups. You can change this setting so that only friends can add you to groups, or to nobody at all.

Settings

Your account is highly customizable. You can choose your preferences in the Settings room. In the About Me section, you can specify your gender, orientation, and language. Your profile will display whatever you choose. You also have the option to show your location and distance. By default, these are public values. All of these will help other users filter who they're searching for in Browse Users. You can choose who is allowed to leave a comment on your profile. If you choose to require comment approval, comments others leave you won't be displayed until you approve those comments in the Comments room. You can choose whether anyone can message you, or just your friends. You can also disable offline messages.

Browse Users

In this room, you can search for users using a wide array of filtering options. The filtering options include gender, orientation, rating, and distance. This feature can be useful for finding other Yugioh players in your same area. In the search results, each user is shown along with a description about themselves, depending on what they've entered in their settings. Clicking on their avatars will take you to their profile.

Duel Log

All duelists have access to the duel log in their games. The duel log shows information about all actions that are taken during the duel. It can be searched and filtered. In case you missed something, using the duel log can help you.

Goat Format

In the Duel Room, you can now host a duel under Goat Format, for duels that only use cards that were released before September of 2005. To view a list of cards that are permitted for use in this format, click here

Expert Room

Another new format within the Duel Room, called the Expert Room, is for users who have passed the Duelingbook exam only. The purpose of this room is to make sure that the opponents you play against are experienced players who know what they're doing.

Importing/Exporting Decks

If you have decks saved from other websites in the form of YDK files, you can import them really easily into Duelingbook. You can also export YDK files from Duelingbook for use with other websites, as well as our preferred XML format. If you're only using Duelingbook, we recommend using the XML format, which insures that your preferred artwork for cards remain the same. You also have the option to print an official KDE decklist for use with real life tournaments. This will save you a lot of time and handwriting.

Tokens

For each of your decks, you can choose the artwork for the Tokens that you Summon while dueling with that deck. To do so, click the Token button in Deck Constructor, and pick an artwork from the images provided.

Frozen Status

When you break the rules of the site, you may become Frozen. When you are, you will have limited functionality on the site. You will not be allowed to duel, and you cannot post in any chats, except for private messages with your friends. You are free to watch duels and construct decks though. A Frozen account will return to normal within a few days, depending on how severe your infraction was. If you commit an offense that is overly severe, your account may get banned.

Beginner Status

If a judge determines that you are not familiar with the rules to Yugioh, you may temporarily be set as a beginner, which will disable you from entering rated games. You'll still be free to play in unrated games.

Notifications

For certain events, you will receive a notification. You will be notified if you receive a profile comment, a status reply, a friend request, or are added to a group.

Judges

If you have a dispute in a rated game, you may call a judge to come and issue a ruling. If it's determined that a player is cheating or is away from the keyboard, he may be subject to penalties.

Donation Rewards

By donating to Duelingbook, you can redeem rewards that will grant you custom avatars and sleeves. For every dollar donated, you are given 3 days of customs. You are allowed to upload risque content, providing you mark that image as NSFW. If you do so, when a user views your profile, they will not see your image unless they click the NSFW button.

 

YO

THEY HAVE THE MOST IMPORTANT STUFF!!!!!!

 

Expert Room

Another new format within the Duel Room, called the Expert Room, is for users who have passed the Duelingbook exam only. The purpose of this room is to make sure that the opponents you play against are experienced players who know what they're doing.

 

Beginner Status

If a judge determines that you are not familiar with the rules to Yugioh, you may temporarily be set as a beginner, which will disable you from entering rated games. You'll still be free to play in unrated games.

Well at least whoever added goat format wasn't retarded. Exarion Goats isn't even a real format.

PredictIt isn't a trump ad lol, it's where you can bet money on politics. Also where Patrick Hoban lost all of his money since he bet it on Hillary Clinton winning. I've posted about the site before.

I know. My browser history has predictit on it because I looked up what the Trump impeachment odds were after the Russian dossier story. Turns out they only had a market for impeachment in the first 100 days which is not even close realistic.

I think it's a mistake to not allow Exarion and CRV in the pool, and one of several reasons is that this will split players in "goat format" and "unlimited".

 

That's not a bad thing. If you want to play without exarion you host in unlimited. If you want to play the real goat format, you host in goat format.

 

Never understood how people could be nostalgic for a format that never existed

Having played a lot of both versions, Exarion doesn't improve the format at all. In fact, it makes decks more homogeneous. With this, and it not being in the original format, there's no real reason to use it.

I asked people in the Goat thread what they wanted before making the cardpool and there was no consensus so I just went with whatever I felt like, which is an authentic and more diverse format.

I think that all the cards released during the april 2005 lists should be playable, and not "up to a certain point"; also considering that the format most popular and played by all in the last years has been the one with Exarion (this is to say that we are not talking about an unknown format played by 4 assholes).

 

And I believe that this division (-)/(+)/CRV should be done in the same pool (in the duel notes), but this is just my opinion.

 

By this logic we should be playing with CRV.

 

The reason we play Goat Format is because of people's memories of the format in the middle of the summer in 2005. The period from mid-May 2005 to early August 2005 is what many veteran players remember as goat format. If you ask players who played back then, most of them don't understand why we play with Exarion Universe but not CRV now.

 

The answer is that in 2012 the DGZ user @Haruki decided for the community when DN launched a Traditional Format feature (iirc) that we should play with Exarion. This was an arbitrary decision made by a single person. If No Exarion format is better, which the jury is still out on, there's no good reason we should continue to play with only Exarion.

 

 

I for one am very happy that DuelingBook is not including Exarion, because this gives us all a chance to explore no-exarion format and finally find out which one is better. Without this forced no-exarion goat room, we wouldn't be able to settle the debate, and I doubt any of the pro-exarion folk would even try life without exarion. Tough shit, weebs.

So, in other words, it's Reggie's fault.

It turns out reggie's worst crime was not posting gore and porn on the site; it was playing the wrong goat format.

For what it's worth if you read the first page of the thread you'll see reggie didn't want to include Exarion, but people insisted on it. So it's all Patrick Hoban's fault.

Might have also been at least partially Grant's fault for posting this nonsense:

On 6/3/2012 at 0:11 PM, staunch patrician grant said:

actually exarion was legal roughly a week before crv was, so no crv does not technically include it.

while i prefer to play pre-crv (with exarion legal), i don't really care what timeframe as long as you let me know beforehand.

//decay.

You may be interested in reading this 

 
which'll show why we've got a 'been through this, pre-exarion = standard goat format' mentality on this. the point of this really is that when people refer to goat, they refer mostly to goat format YCS's etc in which exarion/CRV weren't legal - not some cyber twin otk decks etc. which can still be played, but isn't really standard 'goats'

I repeat, I am absolutely not saying what format we have to play, everyone is free to play whatever he wants (also play goat format w/dragon rulers, who wants to try? lol), but only that they should all (-/+/CRV) be available in a pool called "goat format"; because -to my knowledge- until yesterday "playing with Exarion" or CRV was considered "playing goat format".

 

 

 

 

 

If I am understanding this correctly, you are suggesting that the "norm" is to play goat format with CRV.

While the conversation is there about if Goat format does or doesn't include Exarion, those that assume the format includes CRV are very, very few and far between.  I would gamble to say less than 2%.

Cards like Cyber End Dragon, Cyber Twin Dragon, and Magical Explosion take away almost every aspect of what makes Goat format what it is.
