Rant from a returning player after a few months

Post by Rowwdy Yisb » Thu Jan 22, 2015 1:03 pm

Okay, so by the title you can guess that since I invested some time into League, my yugioh game has been a bit lackluster these past few months, so I decided to give ye olde duel brain a test spin.

And there is this horrible card that is for some reason off the banlist. It's worse than Snatch Steal, Raigeki and BLS all combined.

This piece of garbage right here

Image

is why I decided to quit after like four games.

It completely shuts down pretty much the main game mechanic (Even worse than Skill drain, which I already hate), and worst of all is that it's so frickin splashable even Volcanic Rat OTK would chuck three copies in. It doesn't even limit your deck like Skill Drain or Decree by making you play around your own copy, because all you have to do is set up a half decent field and this card just games people all on its own. Even if you only block a single special summon before it gets popped, that's disrupting your opponent's play and going a minimum of +0 off the card, which pretty much every game will give you at least one oppurtunity to do so.

PLZ ban konami this is the worst game design I have ever seen kthxbai

wut.... why does everyone hate vanitys? i dont mind it all. i wuvs it. im not sure it should be hit if they arent hitting other meta decks, if they have all their stuff its a good counter and balances the meta a little.

It's true. You can't possibly justify a reason for it to remain at 3.

i still dont see how its dat bad tho............ usually u just stop like one play and u go "+0'. also it hurts you the same way it hurts your opponent, so thats at least a little balanced. but the main thing is that it keeps the higher tier decks in check. :/

It's largely irrelevant as it stands. However, with Nekroz coming around the corner, it might be slightly relevant again.

I don't see it played nearly at all at my locals, and a friend of mine managed to get top two regionals with 60 card without this card at all, so.
My thoughts on Pendulum Summoning: "Somebody played a card game and then boom! End of the world. It totally happened, just like I said; just card game -- boom! Everyone dead."

I can't even understand where this idea even came from. So many people say it, but it's completely the opposite.

If you don't have an immediate answer to the card, you lose. Simple as that.

It locks decks out from playing the game. It doesn't matter if it might not be relevant anymore, the card just shouldn't be at three.

No one plays exodia but that's healthy right?

No one plays chain burn but that's healthy right?

Just because a card isn't played doesn't make it healthy.

Besides to say this card isn't relevant is really silly, it's played in so many different decks right now.

The card is a floodgate, which is the worst kind of card design. It should be forbidden. Simple as that.

The card also doesn't keep higher tier decks in check at all. If it did then they wouldn't be high tier decks, hell half of them play this card and can abuse it an insane amount. Have you seen this card in qliphort? It's infinitely abusable.

The full picture is that Vanity is better in the T1 decks than it is in lower tier decks.

In other words; it makes great decks better, and not great decks worse.
