So... anyone feel like commenting on Bakuras new event? Personally I enjoy it, the dice battles piss me off at times, but the fact it forces you to use preconstructed decks is what makes it most enjoyable to me. Makes you try out new strategies... though I kinda stopped changing decks once I got a lv 40 deck to drop. Inzektors and Queen, which is basically a deck built around using Cocoon of Ultra Evolution and the equipping power of Inzektors to summon out Metamorphosed Insect Queen while also allowing the Inzektors to thrive in power even without doing that. That happened around stage 21 or so for me, I think... cant remember. I do recall getting a lv 30 sea serpent and dino deck after I got the Inzektor deck, though.

Yeah, I like the event, though I kinda wish it wasn't a lottery given it's not as grindable as other lottery events. (That, or it should have had slightly fewer rewards. Skilled Blue and Berserk Gorilla are obvious filler, they could've skipped them.) Also wish the booby-prize chests giving like 100-200 coins gave something else, anything else. N/R cards from the event, 5 lottery coins, 1 gem, 5 R Jewels. Anything but the small number of coins (or less coins, or attribute gems).

 

 

I stuck with Spellcaster LV30 for quite a while, then switched to the Dinosaur beatdown deck since the auto-duel AI kept losing to the opponent deck with Dark Crusader, and eventually switched to U.A. even though it has some consistency issues.

 

 

I almost have sets of the cards. Just need 1 more Zorc, 1 Skilled White Magician and 2 Earthbound Spirit. (I haven't had a single Earthbound Spirit from the lottery, the only one I have is the guaranteed one.)

I used the U.A. Deck for a while, was powerful but had more dead draws in less uses than Inzektor Queen so I went back to that eventually. I ended up using the EX gems to buy my 2nd Winged Sage Falcos, but at the end I had two of that and 2 Zorc with a set of everything else. Overall I was meh on the cards period, might make a Zorc deck in the future just for the funsies but nothing serious. The concept of the whole event was fun though.

Wow, rather quiet here. Not even a word about anything from the Yubel event...

 

So.... Synchros are finally here along with 5Ds characters... and anyone who knows my preferences knows im kinda pissed a bit at a lack of Jack Atlas. Yet we get freaking LEO! X/

 

Removing my bias, though, synchros are rather lacking right now. Not a lot of good generics yet, in my opinion.

Yeah, they started Synchros a tad weaker than I was expecting. It bothers me that only 1 5D's duelist actually gives any Synchros at all. Would it have killed them to give, say, Gram to Crow or something, or things like Armed Wing or <insert Warrior Synchro here> to Yusei as Level rewards? Also, Junk Synchron not being a standalone card is dumb. As is Copy Plant being the card in Akiza's skill, it really should have been Twilight Rose Knight.

 

That being said, I wasn't expecting Blue-Eyes stuff this early. Azure-Eyes seems pretty good for this point in Duel Links. And with it came a crapton of overdue Normal support like Faustian Bargain and Dark Factory. X-Sabers I was expecting, but probably aren't good enough yet, despite Hyunlei, Boggart Knight and Saber Slash existing.

 

 

The thing that has me most excited right now is the Card Flipper campaign honestly. Leng Ling is a card. A card I want. I really want Cyberdarks to be good. Now I just hope we get a Claw and/or Cannon from the Zane event, or a skill that dumps a Dragon from Deck.

Trudge... I can't believe freaking TRUDGE is the FIRST 5Ds event character! And his first skill is either badly worded or glitching, because currently with my game at least if I have his skill that adds Goyo Guardian to the extra deck equipped, it removes any other synchros from the deck. *sighs* Oh well, X-Sabers is the deck I went with for him. The Macroseed you get from Akiza's levels is an amazing friend for the deck, letting me alter and edit any of the X-Sabers levels so I can go for Hyunlei whenever I need her instead of only going for Souza because most of my deck is 4 stars. On Crow I also use Level Augmentation since I choose to run the field spell, allowing me to increase their level by up to 5 (thanks to Gardestrike) to boost their power further. 

 

The list update was needed, especially with Amazoness. Happy with the Blue-Eyes support, though I've found Arkana to be the most reliable user in PVP. I've also had a lot of fun using a Junk Deck, though that one I've only used against computers.

 

Im also pleased by the addition of Cyberdark support, instantly making Cyberdarks much better. My main build doesnt run Cyberdarkness, I'd find that more useful if we had the field spell. Leng Ling is DEFINITELY a card that makes the Cyberdarks a bit more threatening.

 

Synchros are stepping up, but Azure Eyes and that one in the Trader are really the main useful ones. I do agree that I wish they'd release Junk Synchron, however at the moment he is a very powerful tuner and it might be best (for now) to keep him limited to Yusei's skill.

 

I also cant blame most people, but this chat is frequently quieter than it used to be. Especially with the new stuff... is EVERYONE just disappointed like me that we get Leo and Trudge but not Jack? Or is life just a b***h to everyone else as well? Or is the need to chat just lessened? I know River and Macho are still on frequently like me, but everyone else is shown as not logging in for.... WEEKS...

Zane, you do know that most of the users of the site are gone, right? Like, it's you, me, N00b, and uh... maybe MBP that show up regularly. I don't play Duel links, and i doubt that MBP does.

I do, and I know Rivershocks on at least Duel Links daily and Machopony is on once in a while with some fair frequency. I was more commenting how we got chatty whenever something new came on the game and now suddenly its not, and thats been since even I came back.

 

And WOW, the notification system doesnt let me know crap. I set it up where I get emails when people post here, but I rarely get them even when people post...

Yeah... I've barely bought any of the new boxes, lol. I recently finished getting a maxed out Buster Blader deck (so 3 Buster fusion, 2 Dark Paladin, I'm fine with no Synchros personally). Been going for Blackstorm Rising lately, just for the Harpie and Bujin stuff. No clue what I'll go for beyond that, nothing jumps out at me. I did recently max out all my characters, though. (Aside from Jack, who's at like 26.) So I'll be getting less gems.

 

 

I wonder if I'll bother second-staging the KC Cup. Buster Blader's a solid deck, and has decent matchups against most things... But not a fan of Ancient Gears. Man that deck is kinda disgusting. I underestimated just how good Ancient Gear Reactor Dragon is.

Yeah, I might jump between Ancient Gear bull with Crowler and Blue-Eyes bull with Arkana depending on my mood and how much I just want to win but I agree. Summon Reactor, cause damage, pop appropriate spell on your field to summon another, swing for game. Very autopilot, but I do try to avoid the standard builds for more reasons than just because I dont feel like shelling out $8 for the 3rd deck after spending 1000 jewels for 1 and $4 for another.

Ive only spent on structure decks where they refuse to let us buy more than 1 with gems and so far only the EX ones. Usually theyre cheaper in total than this one, though, and come with a mat and sleeve set in the deals. This one, however... twice the price for the gem cost, then the discount gives you nothing but the cards and you can only get the discount once.

Heh, a little earlier I think I had my favourite duel in Duel Links so far, and it was a mirror match.

 

Actually decided to upload it to Youtube (as far as I can tell, the share option in Duel Links does jack all). Not likely going to do this often, if ever, but thought this one was worth the hassle.

 

I'd probably suggest muting it. There's some breathing sounds or something at the beginning, and I didn't have sounds on in the replay anyway. (I didn't realize audio recording would include the microphone, thought it was just in-app sounds. First time using a screen recorder.)

 

 

https://youtu.be/0NyP38cMPPI

 

 

That's also the duel that ranked me up to 18. I think I literally lost 6 or more "win and you rank up" duels prior to this, mostly to weird hands. (More than 1 hand of a combination of 3 Buster Blader/Emblem of Dragon Destroyer, and one particularly troubling hand of 3 DNA Surgery against a 30-card Dragon deck that seemingly only drew monsters.) I'll probably keep dueling (especially as I only have like 54 Ranked wins or something this month anyway), but I don't know if I'll hit 20.

Wow, that was intense... a LOT of DNA Surgeries being used to counter other DNA Surgeries just to gain an upper hand. Those are the kinds of duels I live for, well fought and well earned. Not the cheese fest where youre either walking all over people or theyre walking all over you.

Well, I hit DL Max. Not in the way I expected, though. I faced Koa'ki Meiru and they misplayed, lol. Their first turn they just passed. I Summon Mirage Dragon, set a couple of backrow, hit them in the face, pass. They Summon Maximus, then Summon Ice, then activate Ice's effect... With Maximus as the only Special Summoned monster on the field. They also immediately realized their mistake, and surrendered soon after, lol.

Yeah, Ive been guilty of some bad plays myself... most notably, when using the Ancient Gears deck (I made it to 19 on my version, so its not too bad) Ive several times over forgotten to set my Double Cyclone BEFORE summoning Wyvern. Ive lost duels to Masked HERO decks because I forgot to set it first when I couldve used it to destroy something of mine to quickly summon out a Reactor Dragon to save myself. Oh well, can't blame anyone but myself on that.

I'm likely going to skip it entirely. The only cards in the entire set I particularly care about are Bad Aim, Living Fossil and maybe Vice Dragon, Dark Bribe or Skill Prisoner. Think I'll stick to trying to get a set of Harpie Dancer (and ideally Neos Alius and Tiki Curse) from Blades of Spirits, then either move on to going for more copies of backrow like Canadia, or save the gems entirely. Maybe Secrets of the Ancients if I really want to go for the Insect stuff, given I could do with Armades anyway.

 

The funny thing is that Blackstorm Rising and Power of Bravery are the only two 5D's boxes I've put any investment into. (Well, also like 2 thirds of a box of Stardust Acceleration, but that was mostly out of a lack of anything else I wanted at the time. Really want a set of Unexpected Dai, but there isn't enough else in the set I want that it's worth me digging for them.)

I saw the Nephthys support and decided besides my bias for Red Dragon Archfiend I wanted to try and build the Nephthys deck. Still a work in process on making it good, figuring out what I can use less of and what I can slip in when I take those out. Still fun to play as it is, but can't really hold too much of a candle to the lv 40 decks and therefore I'm not bothering to try it in PVP yet.
