Duel Challenges

You requested, here it is: an area dedicated to duel requests and other YGOO-related challenges.  If you are on Yu-Gi-Oh! Online and are looking for some practice or a friendly duel, drop us a line here and we’ll look you up.  Be sure to leave your handle, typical hours of play, and other pertinent information so that we may find you.

Don’t just stop on the basic information, either.  Let us know everything you’d like to share with the Yu-Gi-Oh! dueling world: how long you’ve played Yu-Gi-Oh!, where you live, where you have travelled to, other hobbies…  Whatever’s clever!  We want to help build the community up by showing folks that people of all backgrounds, ages, and interests play this game, not just the youngins!

Not only will this be a great way for duelists all over the world to get to know each other but also a great way to set up other fun challenges.  Check back here for challenge updates.  If you complete the challenge, be sure to share your experience in a nice comment!  Alternatively, you can e-mail us to have your testimonial posted in our “Mail Bag” area, or wherever it may be appropriate!

CHALLENGE #1:  David Versus Goliath

PREMISE:  Old-school duelists can appreciate a simple beatdown deck more than most but the object here is to make a deck that has no heavy-handed heroes.  That means put away your Egyptian god cards, Level 7’s, or whatever other cheesy hulks you may have in the trunks.  This is all about “finessing it” rather than playing hard-nose Yu-Gi-Oh!

CONDITIONS:  None of your monster cards can possess an attack higher than 1500 nor can they exceed Level 4.  The following cards are explicitly prohibited:

  • Injection Fairy Lily
  • Spirit Reaper
  • Gravity Bind
  • Swords of Revealing Light
  • Nimble Mumongo
  • Giant Germ

OBSERVATIONS:  Take note of what combos you use to counter over-powering monsters and to avoid “invincible” monsters on the field.  What we’re trying to see here is how many people can breathe without really strong monsters and typical recipes here.

BONUS:  Complete the above challenge without using any monsters that are inherently invulnerable to battle damage and claim extra bragging rights!

CHALLENGE #2:  Counting Counters

PREMISE:  They say efficiency is the only way to survive in a tournament.  To many, that means never needing to swap cards from your side deck.  That may seem extreme but it sure makes for a fun challenge.  Seeing how most duelists use very similar, if not the very same, recipes these days, one has to wonder if there is a solid counter deck out there…

CONDITIONS:  Create a deck that will counter the most popular recipes out there.  This deck must be different from what you usually do and must have at least one major type of deck in mind.  The goal is to create a counter deck and see if you can adapt it to other deck builds.  Your deck must survive ten consecutive duels, whether they are singles or matches; that means ten duelists in a row.  The absolute must here is keeping a duel strategy in mind and countering it so avoid any multi-purpose builds,  though adaptability is part of the build, of course.

OBSERVATIONS:  Jot down the TOP 5 cards you saw the most (guesstimate if you must) as well as the general recipes and combos you saw.  You may find that everyone you dueled has a common core in their deck.  For extra fun statistics, see how long you can last with the same deck without making any adjustments.  How many counter counts can you reach before you revert to your old deck or make some major adjustments?

BONUS:  Add a little ziff to things by not using any limited cards and, if you dare, no semi-limited cards!

Don’t forget: when you contact us with your winning strategy, be sure to include which challenge you beat so that we can readily-identify, where on our web site we can feature your story!

    Tell-tale sign of a [possible] SCAMMER: Scammers hardly ever provide substantial contact information. They either use freemail addresses such as AOL, Yahoo, and Hotmail or provide false addresses. Please be wary of scammers, especially when they use unethical marketing ploys such as domain squatting, comment spammin, link storms, and unsolicited e-mail advertisements. In this case, it seems that it was just poor foresight and business practices that hurt this resellers visibility. We’re working on rectifying the situation now. 8)

    UPDATE: After some more research, it seems that YugiohOnlineXtreme simply has not received enough volume to get noticed by analytical sites. I talked to the site owner (as you can see here) and he seems like a legitimate business owner. The happy ending here is that we’ll likely work together to help him adopt better business practices and, ultimately, get more Duelpasses out in the marketplace. =o)

    I decided to approve this comment to show people how NOT to promote your business. Any self-respecting business knows better than to just try to spam blogs and ride the coat tails of those that followed good SEM and SEO practice to get where we are at. Sites like this and Duelpasses.com seem to be appearing a lot now that Yu-Gi-Oh! is on a popularity boom again. Please be careful when dealing with fishy businesses like this.

    I took the liberty of running some web analytics on this site. Not only does YugiohOnlineXtreme NOT show up anywhere in search results but the third-party reporting and market research sites say that the site pretty much does not exist. This means that this site is either brand-new (already a bad sign) or it is a scam site that is trying to stay out o the radar. One of the benefits of doing business with us at Yugioh-Duelpass.net is that we take the guesswork out of things. We’ll buy stock from the little sites to keep the supply channels alive and minimize the risk to you, our valued customers.

    For more information on spotting Yu-Gi-Oh! Online scams and myths, check out the appropriately-named article(s) and our FAQ. You should find these links via our archives, page tabs, or most-popular post areas. Advertisers and distributors should definitely check out this information as it reveals how consumers think. 8)

    Dear Mr. fdsfsas@aol.com,

    I’m sorry if having a few laughs at your expense offended anyone but you have to realize that blogging is a very pure medium. Spamming comments with shameless plugs is bad practice. Instead, you should have come clean by posting what you just revealed here. I would have been a lot more receptive to your comments if you took the proper channels. In fact, any other blog or forums moderator would have reported you as a spammer and had you blacklisted for posting in the wrong area, not really contribute to the discussion at hand, and going through the wrong channels for forming a vendor relationship with us, like so many others have. 8)

    Afraid of competition? LOL… With the huge demand in the marketplace (and such a shortage of supply to meet it), there is enough money to be made by all distributors. Heck, we’ve plugged other distributors (folks like OCDK, for example) to our customers in the past so that is a gross exagerration. At least my theories are based on actual facts and figures, not mere speculation aimed at discrediting my argument. Again, I realized it was provoked but consider how your post looks from my perspective.

    How long has YugiohOnlineXtreme been in business? If you just recently started up, that may be why you are not appearing in search engines (or in WHOIS records). Every third-party reporting tool indicates that you guys essentially do not exist on the web. How much inventory do you have? I’d like to know. Please e-mail me and maybe we can set the record straight. We’re all about helping out the smaller distributors and the Yu-Gi-Oh! community as whole, as this keeps the gamers happy and spreads the fun out further. In fact, we are currently working with a new UK distributor to see how we can make his web site more effective and keep supply chains steady, especially since Konami themselves has been on backorder on a lot of products. We’re even looking to buy some of his stock to help him out.

    Sorry if I rubbed you the wrong way but you were the first person to try to plug their web site in this tacky manner. I had to point out what was fundamentally wrong with it so others could learn from your mistakes. I’m pretty sure that if the roles were reversed, you would just delete my message. ;o)

  6. my email is letsduel@yugiohonlinextreme.com

    have tried sending my website into search engines every few months but with no luck
    my other websites fine so I can’t understand
    why I am having such a problem with
    yugiohonlinextreme

    as I have not made any money through my site after 3 months so I had to resort in posting on blogs

    Thats Why had to result in posting on
    duel challenges

    any help would be appreciated

    I was planning to sell my small amount of left over stock and getting out of the buissness
    after being contacted by you maybe we could
    do a deal .

    so could you delete the post that discredits my site please .

    thanks

    Thanks for the detailed information! I can certainly appreciate that you and your team are trying to get yourselves known and move your inventory. Stock in these sorts of things eiter gets exhausted really fast or dreadfully slow.

    I’ll drop you a line and modify the comment accordingly. Just note that people are hooked into RSS feeds on our site so the comments already got out there. As a PR move, I’ll say that I retract my comments regarding yugiohonlinextreme.com – I was mostly trying to get your attention so that I could get the full story on things!

    Remember folks: don’t just plug your sites via forums, no matter how desperate your situation may be. Contact site admins or at least leave more descriptive comments (especially on the high-ranking, most-searched sites) so that your intentions are clear and more well-received. 8)
