  1. Huh I just noticed that the Rush Duel version of Dark Magician Girl functions like the original (manga) version where it gained 500 x DM/MoBC in the GYs.... 
    That's neat, she should always have been like that. 300x was always not good enough for most players at any era of the game and 500 had the flavor that once her master passed on she would take a stand to fill up his void as a fully fledged magician (so same ATK) and still potentially outgrow her teacher....
    Sooo yeah.....

      Mayhaps this is indicative of more cards being accurately ported.

      Any chance Graceful Dice shall multiply?

    2. Sleepy


      IIRC Graceful Dice only multiplied monsters with 500 or less ATK in the manga. That was why Joey had that "Swordsman of Landstar" in his Deck from the point he started running the Graceful/Skull Dice combo on as it is technically the strongest Warrior in the game that could be multipled (up to Blue-Eyes-like strength).

      The anime did not quite get that memo and never cleared that up so during the virtual world it teased the public with the possibility of Panther Warrior and a Graceful Dice landing on 6 (12,000 ATK would have been nuts back then). Only for Joey's opponent to hack the system and change the 6 for a 1.

      That Manga version nowadays would probably still be able to cheat that limitation with chain resolution shenanigans, multiplying stuff like a "Rush Recklessly" add in last minute, or in Joey's case, "Metalmorph" lol.

  2. Stumbled upon this just now xD


  3. Hmm hasn't been a great week so far. Most of my family went on different trips last week and I think a combination of street food and frozen food I experimented with did not sit well for my insides. The heat is picking up. 2 days ago I put down a fire at work but I was in a pretty closed down space and ended up learning that breathing the dry powder feels worse than the fire amoke itself. Have had twisted pain in my belly and what I think might be an inflamed respiratory tract from that little incident. As of yesterday I finally felt back to normal, but today before work I had some accute chest pain and it even extended up to my arms a bit. Considering it took nearly 2 hours to fully go away and it happened when I thought things were back to normal, I asked for the day off and decided I'll finally go get a doctor checkup. Though I'm right now once again back to feeling normal and since I'm not one to go to a doctor easily, now it is starting to feel a little awkward. I'm at a mall parking lot under shade thinking for now....

      sure it'll turn around anyway

      Ended up going though the doctor saw no abnormalities... I was pretty scared I might be getting some prelude to heart problems but for now, I was given some medicine to help the muscles in the area and got x-rayed and an upcoming more throughough examination on a weekend. Best case scenario I just wasted some time and ended up being in good shape. It seems my family is full of people feeling bad due to the heatwave and some food-issues..... 
      I wanna think I over-reacted but 2 hours of chest pain that made me crawl into my car seat is hard to dismiss xD
      We'll see n.n

    4. Horu


      The chest wall pain can likely be chalked down to costocondritis. Generally, occurs when you overstress the chest/ribs/lungs or the surrounding muscles. Much like lifting 200 pounds after you run a 5k (bit of a harsh example) would have the same result as pretty much doing any level of lifting while in a room full of smoke. Your inability to breathe will drain your body of the necessary strength to perform the task and overstress your muscles to the point that it causes inflammation in the cartilage between your ribs. Usually goes away if you take NSAIDS and avoid heavy lifting for about a month.

  4. I've got a potential idea for a FIRE deck in "Goat Format". Level 2 or lower Normal FIRE Monsters: "Flame Dancer", "Hinotama Soul", "Charcoal Impachi", "People Running About". With "Human-Wave Tactics" and "Backfire" as the main engine. Recycling can be done with "Pot of Avarice", "Dark Factory of Mass Production", or "Backup Soldier", and it could help to include discard reactions like PWWB, "Divine Wrath", etc. For protection of this whole structure, "Solemn Judgment", "My Body as a Shield", and "Fake Trap" sound like they'd do the trick....

    I think like there's a formula there to make things work but it seems like I'd be losing a lot more LP than my opponent just from LP costs and battle damage here, even if generic super burn like Cylinders, Ring, Ceasefire, etc... were used.

    IDK, it's a random idea I got.

    1. UltimateIRS


      just use wave-motion cannon this is an awful idea

    2. Sleepy


      I guess these ARE too many steps.  It doesn't even factor in the opponent not wanting to attack, looping Exiled Force, or using D.D. Warrior Lady, Chaos Sorc, BLS... there's also a ton more destruction like Tribe, Smashing, Torrential, Ring, Mirror Force if I go on the offensive, Blowback Dragon, Zaborg, banishers like D.D. Crazy Beast or DMoC, or Jinzo... hmmm

      Guess FIRE does have the Simochi/Fire Princess version and the Flare Dragon burn one which requires less pieces to work and even those are less than top tier material. xD

  5. Come to think of it, the Legendary Dragons of the Orichalcos saga. Critias fuses with Traps sooo I'm thinking Hermos ideally needed to fuse with Spells, and the only reason it didn't was because "Red-Eyes Armor go burrrrrrr!!!" xD
    . . . well, no, the armor I think came from another thing, but still... because "gonna use something more iconic". Joey had ummm Graceful Dice, Foolish Burial, Question, I can't think of many more "Joey Spells".

      You do still have have that scapegoat token dragons art right?

    3. Sleepy


      Indeed I do xD

    4. Sleepy
  6. It occurs to me that a retrain of the legendary dragon spells (timeas, critias, hermos) should allow them to evolve all their different on field legal targets into their respective fusions instead of 1 per use. Or get a field that allows for them to work that way. Sounds kind of casual still but would be fun.

      The current Legendary Dragon Spells only work in conjuction with said cards to summon a certain monster from the ED. What Sleepy is getting at is this: Let's say you have Dark Magician and Dark Magician Girl on the field and you drop The Eye of Timaeas. You should be able to tribute both monsters to summon Amulet Dragon and Dark Magician Girl the Dragon Knight respectively.

    3. Sleepy


      Exactly what Horu said there.
      I would have preferred to prepare things for custom card making but I've had time constrains in my activity lately. It's not the only thing the Legendary Dragons lack but I thought it'd be a good start xP

    4. Horu


      I would like the dragons to have some field presence. You know, like if you don't have the cards they work with, you could summon said dragon and actually have a body on the field.

  7. So I finally got around to watching Re:Zero... the first 25 episodes at least, which I covered in about little more than a day somehow xD

    1. Tinkerer


      How is it?  The show doesn't look like my cup of tea, but it seems really popular.

    2. Sleepy


      It isn't for everyone but I liked it very much myself. The MC I'm torn between understanding how much he struggles and sometimes cringing a bit with his choices. He is a good character. The show has a lot of death in it, in a very disheartening way, so the reset/respawn theme for the MC helps fix the world but it doesn't make things easier to fix. Sometimes he'll fix what killed him or other characters and keep bumping into more ordeals in subsequent loops, until he can come up with a set of actions that'll resolve things with the least amount of collateral damage (though never 0 ). He can't decide the time/place of his next "checkpoint" to revive at, can't tell anybody of his power to rewind after death, and sucks at fighting. Talking of shipping... Rem (blue hair girl) eventually has way too much good chemistry with the MC so his pursuit of the main girl ends up annoying me more than anything else in the show xD like... OMG I can't  get into all I could say about it during this lunch break I'm at....

      All in all it has elements of things i would not watch but honestly it works and it did hook me up (watched 25 episodes in less than 2 days and wouldnt mind rewatching it). 

  8. Hmm more often than not, popular legacy formats seem to happen at the start of the gen. Yugi/Kaiba format at the start of the DM era. Goat Control at the start of the GX era. TeleDAD format at the start of 5DS era. Shaddoll/Qli format at the start of Arc V era. ZeXal's an exception as Dragon Rulers came a year later and lasted pretty much until Shaddolls got here. I also have no idea of any VRAINS era formats people claim to actually have liked... So for the most part, seems the game starts good and just decays over time until the next overhaul xD

    1. Sleepy


      For the record, I very much am not a fan of the TeleDAD format and think the Synchro era was best near the end... buuuut it is what it is and TeleDAD has its fans....

      Wasn't it Zoodiac during early VRAINS?

    3. Sleepy


      I think Zoodiacs were older than that? lemme check. Huh you are right.... end of Arc V/early VRAINS. Nice one xD

  9. I'm just finding out that apparently, Thomas the Tank Engine has a ton of lore and world building... IDK xD

    1. The Nyx Avatar

      The Nyx Avatar

      Henry was walled up when he refused to leave because he didn't want to get dirty. And got dirty anyways where he was walled up. Despite being for children, Thomas the Tank Engine had a few disturbing stories.

  10. Finally got around to seeing the Pokemon direct. I'm intrigued for the Legends game, but I'll still wait. Not a fan of the Let's Go method of catching wild pokemon but glad they actually updated graphics and attack animations better. Still can't help but be cautious.
    DP remakes, tbh I'm not a fan of the chibi and it shouldn't be a "loyal/nostalgic experience", It should have all of which the original had and then some things to expand on. This currently looks like a time capsule and I bet they won't even allow gen 5+ mons in the dex. Also gotta see how they end up doing the SwSh Exp Share method... shivers

    1. PrimeAceJohn


      I agree with everything you said. I wish they took more of the OR/AS remake method with D/P :/

  11. Hey is it me or are TCG products getting super expensive these days? Digimon had a case of short supply for unexpectedly high demand in the newest iteration of its attempt at card games. Yugioh has sudden random stuff like old versions of DMG costing as much as Starlight Rares which I hadn't seen those degrees of spiking in previous years. Pokemon is also strangely spiraling out of control with some full art cards getting 2 or 3 times more expensive... I don't know the details on why it is apparently rocking right now.
    I have no idea about MTG but I'm gonna think it is the exception with those random spam of facebook ads of this "Secret Lair" product that usually looks very non-MTG-like and is apparently pretty pricey for the amount of cards it actually provides (honestly I don't think I'm super hooked up on that one but what is the general consensus on that?)

      Got back from looking up the Jumpstart info I could find. That's an interesting piece of information. MTG had a flawed prediction of sales numbers due to COVID and the some quality control issues, but otherwise the way it is an alternative to a draft/cube that is self sufficient is done in a pretty interesting manner.

      The secret lair stuff (mainly a Valentine's theme box that apparently was impossible to get shipped before Valentine's day no matter when you preordered it)...

      Yeah Blue Eyes is ridiculous and it's not even the DDS one, and Dark Magician Girl is also going high up. What made me think of this topic was actually Rosa's full art in Pokemon's TCG, which was a ridiculous 50 USD last year but now it is suddenly like 120+ and apparently a lot more scarce. Other cards I had checked that were on their 20s are no 50s, if they were around 8 now they are in the 20s... it's crazy.

      Digimon's decks were officially 10 each but you cannot find them at least than 30 now, and sometimes people are asking as much as 50.... and it's all resellers that stocked up and the company said the are planning on sending more product to combat all this soon sooo this one is more of a scam from the secondary market.

      Full disclaimer: I'm not really looking to buy all this stuff... I just can be weird like that, checking markets for the sake of it I suppose xD

      Well, I can tell you this based on my visit to the department store. There's plenty of Magic thr Gathering stuff here. With the exception of the Freezing Chains Structure Decks, there's only like...four booster packs from the Evil Twin set, and a couple of those Kaiba and Mai boxes. And NOTHING for the Pokemon card game. I remember how for years, only the easily impressionable kids would buy Pokemon packs and tins.

      It started with COVID money bumping up starlight rares. I can touch more on the YGO market if you'd like. Vintage cards have been rapidly rising since March 2019.

  12. Sooo is DuelingBook abandoned to rot away now after Flash got cut off? I went there yesterday and a lot of visuals seem to be broken.

      For me, all graphics were broken. Card images were not loading and hovering over their space in the deck building section would have the thumbnail versions show up with no stars if they showed at all. The chat at the entrance of the site had no avatars, stuff like that. It does not look like your version Rayfield at all xD
      Oddly enough Mr Best Male 2008's link was a bit different, first appearing with html5 or something along the lines after the "www.duelingbook.com/" part. After I clicked that link it started functioning normally there, and closing and going to the site myself again just normalized it that day. I've just tested going there (without using the link provided above) myself and seems it now just is fixed somehow xD

      It runs on html5 for about half a year now ;)

      Oh, was it? I did not see it much earlier either. Peculiar. Regardless, the principle of the gating is still not new.

      I think that information being restricted based on such a scale makes very little sense compared to other things.

    4. Sleepy


      Name changing is still an ability with the condition of it being restricted to once every 90 days but that indeed wasn't what I was referring to. As Giga said, I meant the ability to view past names on people's profiles. 
      I don't think that was a function anymore after the forum update that happened after NCM came to be.

  14. Oh, I see the changes now. I don't think "written" is necessary in the forums anymore considering how used everyone got to them over the past few years (even if images now work again in the card maker). I think that's my only claim there xD

      Dragonmaids + Red-Eyes? Meta? Wut?

  16. Curious on something: In my profile info there's an area that says "Eligibility Yes". There's no context and after looking around I don't think it even appears in my edit settings. I also have no idea how long that's been there. I have questions xD

      it's some mod thing whose purpose i am unsure off which was for some reason set to be visible only to staff and profile owners so i've changed it to staff only, now nobody need worry if they are eligible or not, we will bear the weight of this knowledge for you all

  17. Need to sleep at least an hour. I better come back from work tomorrow to find another 14 pages worth of quality content at the mod thread and for the Christmas event have advanced to stage 3  Don't disappoint me YCM xP

  18. Whoever ends up mod at the end of all this chaos, just please make me a favor: Revert the Custom Cards section rules from "giant letters" to a normal pinned thread.

  19. Thought by now I'd be seeing more "Krow for admin mod" content by now xd

      Tell me about it. Was outside for 5 minutes yesterday. (longest I've been outside in 2 months, mind you) and upon my return to my bedroom, I discovered that snot was running down my face and then I began sneezing. I forgot I was allergic to nature. I don't know how one forget's they have allergies in Spring, Summer and Fall. . . But somehow. . . I did. . . Also discovered the hard way last night that I am allergic to feathers. Screw that stupid feather pillow that nearly suffocated me. I'm glad I got it replaced. . .

      No, 1 post would give you 5 to 30 points depending on where you posted at, and competitions often had point prizes (something like 1000 for example). For the name customizations, a staff member called Sakura would take 10,000 points and you could tell him the font, color, and words for the username that you wanted. He left the site to focus on his career though and I don't know if there's still a way for custom usernames to be made here.

      Yeah... A lot was cut 6 months ago when the forum switched from BBCode.

  23. There's a weird issue about Flame's thread at News where I still see my post from almost 3 hours ago as the last post marked from the overview of the main forums. Yet I know there's been a dozen posts after it in that thread.
