I replayed DDS recently, and honestly, most of the fusions just aren't worth it. Just make a bunch of 1900-2000 custom cards and

Do that.

I also remember that they accidentally made King of Yami ('King of Yamimakai' apparently) level 4 instead of level 5. I loved that card, and remember being very upset that the 'real' version was nerfed so hard.

Hey, at least BN4 is playable. Kinda. Mostly.

I'm not sure which is my favorite of the GBA Yu-Gi-Oh games. Worldwide Tournament was fun, but kind of really same-y and a lot grindy, despite the attempts to fix that. Maybe GX Duel Academy? Which one was it that had Duel Puzzles and the real-world card packs. Was it 2006? I lost a lot of time to that one.

gently caress y'all, Link Monsters are Konami finally having an answer to rein back in the powercreep that's been climbing up the game's rear end since they invented the phrase 'Synchro Fusion'. Yeah, it comes tethered to an unwieldy mechanic, but anyone complaining about Link Monsters without having seen the absurd Calvinball-Mornington-Crescent-Rocket-Tag YGO has turned into can eat my Duel Dick.

I have seen the, quote, "Calvinball-Mornington-Crescent-Rocket-Tag YGO has turned into," and Links are not the solution. I can sympathize with wanting the game to slow down. It's why I don't touch any meta decks period, since I prefer my duels to last more than 2 turns. But what Links are doing isn't 'slowing the game down'. They're cutting off its legs, throwing it into a pit of starving tigers, and yelling, "Run, Forrest! Run!"

tl;dr anyone who legitimately thinks the Link mechanic will be healthy for the game can eat my Duel Dick.
Maybe it's wishful thinking, yeah. It's entirely possible we're just gonna return right back to the days of Kozmo Or Bust. But I WANT TO BELIEVE.

I used to play Gem Knights. Ah, the heady days back when being able to fuse multiple monsters in one turn was just a cool deck gimmick.

Can you still do that one turn Exodia victory deck gimmick?

Also, unrelated, has anyone ever won a tournament match by randomly drawing Exodia as their starting five card hand?
Every so often a new one pops up and they have to nerf whatever draw engine it uses.

Even before that, you had Mechanicalchaser. Nowadays, it's a trash common, but once upon a time, when La-Jinn was THE powerhouse 4-star monster? That fucker easily went for $250 each. And what were you really supposed to do about it?

Infernoids were fun.

Honestly, the only decks recently that made me want to quit (rather than just the price and the toxic playerbase) was PSY-Frames. Jesus Christ, I don't care if they were balanced or not, that was the most unfun poo poo to play against in the history of the goddamn game. At least against a one-turn-win decks, the games were quick.

Hey, Ephraim, your link to your balance patch doesn't work. Think we could get a reupload, and maybe a changelog? That'd be rad.

Reuploading. I'll try to remember what I can about it. I made it a long time ago and knew zero ASM though so I'll likely update it at some point.

Download here. The changes I remember are:
- The price of all cards at the shop was divided by 10 to make them match Sacred Cards prices, EXCEPT for the Exodia pieces. They sell for quite a bit still.
- All cards had their Deck Cost halved, meaning less capacity grinding.
- You now earn more capacity and money from duels.
- Some monsters were given additional effects. Example: Queen's Double and Rainbow Flower have the same effect as Mystic Lamp, which is to attack the opponent directly. Nothing that game-breaking, just thought a couple starter cards could use a boost.
- All cards now have their TCG stats. There were a few that originally did not.
- Ritual monsters have had their Divine attributes removed (don't you DARE spoil why I did that)
- Ritual spells were replaced with monster cards originally removed in Reshef of Destruction
- The final boss was nerfed. Believe me, he needed it.
- All opponents now start at 8000 LP.
You are a saint. Can you give me the For Dummies version of the directions on how to turn off the Permanent Effects sweep, with the code thing, on VBA?

I've been playing the patched version, and it's much more fun.

I noticed that Tristan and Duke still only give 1 Deck Capacity when you win, though.

Edit The Duel Computer, too.

Honestly, even patched, it kind of has that problem a little bit. Either I'm going to have to keep grinding for Deck Capacity, or just deal with the fact that sometimes, I'm not going to draw anything with a power over 700 while some random schmuck drops a Cozmo Queen on my rear end.

Sangan was overpowered because they'd underestimated how useful searching for any low-attack monster could be, and it became more and more so as the game evolved.

Witch of the Black Forest, meanwhile, was overpowered from Day 1, since it could search out La Jinn and Summoned Skull, and Jinzo, the three unarguably strongest monsters in YuGiOh for a very long time.

Edit Well, except Man-Eater Bug, I guess. But Sangan could grab MEB too, and Flip monsters got nerfed hard by Nobleman of Crossout.
