How come you're still alive. Holy shit, has it been four years since you last been here?

About 3.5 years. My brother recently bought both me and him a monarch structure deck each so we could play against eachother again like we did many years ago. Thought I'd swing by here and see what's up.

A lot is up. Not sure where to start.

As you might have noticed, the academies community isn't as it used to be back in the days. No competition really, everything went calm and quiet. We're still alive and kicking of course.

Not many folks from back in the day can be found here though, only a couple and they visit us once a week or something. Others swing by once a month or once a year or whatever.

Let me know if you want specific details. lol

Yeah I figured there wouldn't be as much activity around the community.

I tried reading a couple feature matches from the most recent YCS, but I couldn't really understand much as I don't know any decks. Seems like everyone is playing new stuff that's come out since I left. From what I gathered, the meta is significantly faster than before. Not a whole lot of setting monsters anymore.

Also pendulum zones. Konami wat

Pendulums are fine at first, but then something went wrong and it rotten.

Monarchs -_-, Dracopals :D, Kozmo :D, Burning Abyss :D, and Mermail -_- are the main decks that are being used now (Meta). Towers and Construct are dead -_- RIP

This game is a downfall since Pendelums and DUEA.

Yes, I know. You implied it had been in a downfall since then ... I'm stating that it has picked up since then.

The game is getting better and better though. Maybe 2 decks are cancer but there is so much variety now and its quite fast, which is good

Meta is cancer, banlist dates are not a thing anymore, they are a total suprise now, every deck has either a floodgate or a can't be targeted effect, and you have an entire mechanic focused around reviving itself and disregarding basic skills such as resource management and overextending. Welcome to the new age.


descriptionRe: Hello

tbh only 1 deck is cancer, and thats PK fire (PK and BA) not only is the mirror cancerous but its always going to be a long-ass duel when you duel them

So the top decks are Kozmo, Monarchs, Burning Abyss and Dracopals?

I know Monarchs, but not the other 3. Any good places to read about them and how they work, or should I just wikia that stuff?

We got small guides relating to each, but they might be slightly out-dated.

Oh, well, I was just stating that game has been much more enjoyable before August 2014.

Yo Baku Smile

How's life been treating ya?


Abyss is pretty nice. Atlus and I fooled around with them before they were released and they were pretty interesting.

Infernity and decks like that came back for a bit but then Konami shit stomped them to the ground.

Absolutely. The range of decks involved in that format were fun as heck to play. Nekroz format also took ... you know ... skill to be successful in.

Ah people be discussing what I have in been saying for the last 2-3 years xD

Guys the decks now basically hold your hands as you play them. It's boring.

Doesn't change the fact that playing the game is still boring as fuck, and the pendulum mechanic is completely broken.


My biggest accomplishment so far here on DA

Hate that basically also do this for any deck that doesn't follow an archtype.
