[Duel Links] Forbidden/Limited List and Skill Balance (October 2021)

The time has come!

Skill Balance

  • App Version for Skill Rebalancing
  • 6.1.0
  • Planned to be released around October 14 2021 – October 16 2021
  • Date of Skill Text Changes
  • October 21 2021

Reasons for Skill Rebalancing

  • Malicious HERO
  • With addition of additional reward cards, we are strengthening certain Skill in order to make them easier to use.
  • ZEXAL – Zexal Weapon
  • The type of monsters you can select when changing the top card of your Deck to a “ZW” monster will be increased.
  • Galaxy Photon
  • This Skill will be improved to make it worthy for the Number Hunter to use.
  • Castle of Machines
  • We are strengthening some character-exclusive Skills to make them easier to use.
  • Otomotoplay
  • This Skill is given a harder activation condition, as it allows “Onomat” Decks to perform a variety of tactics in stable manner, and can be used against most Decks.
  • Cyber Style
  • This Skill is given a harder activation condition to promote Deck diversity, as “Cyber Dragon” Decks have been highly prevalent in the metagame for a long time.
  • Demon Resonance
  • The Dragon Knight’s Path
  • The use and the win rate of Skills that support the consistency of Decks have been very prominent in the current metagame. We’re giving harder activation condition to this Skill as it is particularly used in the current environment.
  • Set! Delta Accel!
  • The condition to Summon “T.G. Halberd Cannon” is adjusted as this Skill allows players to Summon “T.G. Halberd Cannon” easily even with Decks with few “T.G.” monsters.
  • Endless Trap Hell
  • Although this Skill is added to support tactics using Trap Cards, we’re giving a harder condition to it as current metagame allows player to use Trap Cards easily.
  • Hero Flash!!
  • This skill has been used to secure the cost of Trap Cards, so we decided to restrict its use to “HERO” Decks only.

Updated Skills


Forbidden/Limited List

  • Implementation Date
  • October 13 2021

Limited to 1

  • Performapal Call
  • We are limiting this card as this it will lead the pace of Duels becoming sluggish as more “Performapal” cards are introduced to the game

Limited to 2

  • Cyberload Fusion
  • “Cyber Dragon” Decks have been in the metagame in one form or another for a very long time, so we are limiting this card to reduce the ability of the Decks to easily gain an advantage over the opponent.
  •  Elegant Egotist
  • This card will be limited to prevent “Harpie” from having access to Limited 2 cards.
  • Aloof Lupine
  • “Thunder Dragon” Decks have been in the metagame in one form or another for a very long time, so we are limiting this card to reduce the high consistency of “Thunder Dragon” Decks.

Limited to 3

  • Floodgate Trap Hole
  • Although this card has been in the metagame in one form or another for a very long time, we are limiting this card to improve the pacing of Duels.

No Longer on The List

  • Amazoness Onslaught
  • This card will be unlimited as its power level is acceptable in current metagame.
  • Secret Pass to the Treasure
  • This card will be unlimited as its power level is acceptable in current metagame.

 

And that’s all! Hopefully with these changes the metagame will be more enjoyable to all. Happy playing!
