    We're on Version 10.0 now whew...

    1. You must announce what card you are playing.
    2. You must announce what phases you are entering.
    3. You must ALWAYS include the image of EVERY card you are playing in your post including facedown cards otherwise your move doesn't count.
    4. You may also Private Message or Visitor Message members who you want to challenge to a Duel.
    5. No editing your posts to try to change your move if someone else has already made their move.
    6. Custom Made Cards are also allowed.
    7. You must take your turn within 24 Hours of when your opponent took their turn or it automatically counts as a forfeit. You must also finish the move you're making within 24 Hours.
    8. You can choose to play with either 2000, 4000, 8000, 12000 or 16000 Life Points as long as both players agree to Duel on those terms.
    9. If your opponent does try to include the card image or card images but they still don't show up through no fault of your opponent give him/her a chance to edit his/her post so the images are included and do show up.
    10. If something comes up and you are unable to finish the Duel with your opponent you may forfeit anytime.
    11. Be careful when mixing themes. Use a true deck and not just random cards. (Ex. Heralds outside of Counter Fairy decks etc.)
    12. No unbeatable combos allowed.
    13. No FTKs Allowed! Play like a Real Duelist!
    14. No stealing other people's combos that were used here.
    15. If you're gonna use customs make sure that their description matches the actual TCG gameplay terms that real cards have.
    16. If you're gonna use customs make sure that they are not something that wouldn’t exist in the real game due to simple mechanics such as Level 4 Monsters with 2500+ ATK for example.
    17. When posting the card images make sure they are big enough that their description is readable.
    18. If you're gonna change the type of Deck you're using be sure to say so first.
    19. You must quote your opponent when replying to their move.
    20. More than one Duel at a time can take place.
    21. If The Rule Moderator tells you to redo your move redo it. No Questions Asked.
    22. The Champion is the one who sets the terms and decides who goes first. (When challenging The Champion)
    23. You can choose to play with either 40, 50, 60 or 80 Cards. And if you exceed your chosen amount of cards and cannot draw during your draw phase, you lose.
    24. When you quote a long post and/or a post full of images please use Spoiler Tags when doing so.
    25. If you have a question regarding whether you or your opponent's move is legal or not VM me.
    26. Do not link to the custom cards you made directly from the card maker. My computer cannot see them if you do. Please upload them properly first using either imgur, imageshack or photobucket etc.
    27. No using images on photobucket for card images unless you're absolutely sure that you will not be moving or deleting them.
    28. When you request a duel with someone, you must use this template:

    Anime Exclusives:
    Manga Exclusives:
    Video Game Exclusives:
    God Cards:
    Illegal Cards:
    First Player:
    Number of Cards per Deck:
    Number of Cards per Extra Deck:
    Other conditions(luck based cards, handicaps, etc.):

    Rules for when you are Dueling someone:

    1. You MUST state the phase you are in before moving to it. This includes the draw and standby phase, even if nothing happens during the latter.

    2. You MUST post the image of EVERY card involved in a duel. This includes when you activate an effect monster's effect and cards that are discarded, milled or banished. If you do not do this, you will have to edit your post. And you will get a strike. And as a rule, if you make 3 moves that must be redone, you lose.

    3. At the end of your turn, you MUST post your field, including your monster zones, field zone, and spell and trap zone. And you must also state how many cards are in your hand at The Draw Phase and End Phase because this too is supposed to be public knowledge.

    4. Upon the activation of ANY Spell card during your turn or Trap card during either player's turn, or Effect Monsters effect during either players turn, if your opponent has the ability to chain one of their facedown cards to it, you MUST ask for and wait for a response. If your opponent fails to respond with a chain within 24 hours, the opponent may NOT chain to that card, and you can continue your turn. For this reason, it is recommended that both participants be online during a duel, so they can respond with "yes, I will chain" or "no, I will not chain".

    5. The source of all Card Rulings will be the official Konami website for The Duelist Genesis onward, and Netrep for Legend of Blue Eyes up to duelist Genesis. These are reliable sources.

    6. I will respond to any out-of-line arguments whether they involve me or not over a duel with an immediate duel termination and a game loss to whoever was the antagonist in my opinion.

    7. As a new rule, When summoning a monster you must state the way in which you are summoning it. Normal Summon, Flip Summon, Special Summon, Fusion Summon, Synchro Summon, Ritual Summon etc.

    Rules For The Use Of Customs:

    1. No Godmodding. Translation: No making Godly, Immortal, or Impervious Cards! Everyone card must have a weakness or drawback, no matter how strong it is. This is a staple rule, Making/Using Unbeatable Cards and/or Cards with Infinite ATK/DEF will not be tolerated. Doing so will result in a game loss.

    2. They can't be ridiculously overpowered.

    3. They can't be just plain cheating.

    4. They can't be a costless version of a card that already exists.

    5. They CAN have Fake Types. But they have to make sense like The 22 Legal Types:

    Aqua. Beast. Beast-Warrior Dinosaur. Divine-Beast. Dragon. Fairy. Fiend. Fish. Insect. Machine. Plant. Pyschic. Pyro. Reptile. Rock. Sea Serpent. Spellcaster. Thunder. Warrior. Winged-Beast. Zombie.

    For those of you who want to know where to go to find the images of real cards:

    This is where:

    For facedown card images use these:



    For the smaller field images go to yugioh wikia, find the card you want and click gallery at the bottom, a new page should open with smaller versions somewhere.
    Right click one and go to properties, the image address will appear, then just copy and paste it between img tags like normally.

    And for those who want to know where to go to make cards:

    This is where:

    Have Fun Dueling Everyone!

    Anime Arena Characters:
    Jaden Yuki/Haou (Me)
    Yusei Fudo (StardustXtreme)
    Yuma Tsukumo (StardustXtreme)
    Akiza Izinski (Aerith G.)
    Vizor (NemesisOmega)
    Zane Truesdale (Lyris1026)

    Keep in mind that you do not have to RP and be an Anime Character if you don't want to. This is entirely just for fun. You may only join as yourself and use whatever Deck you want to if you prefer.

    And for future reference, There's a REASON why this Duel Arena uses a different banlist than Konami's. It's because Konami's list only balances the game according to the random card draw. the random card draw is not the default here so some changes have to be made. All cards that allow a player's hand to be seen must be Banned. Because with the random card draw not being the default that gives unacceptable advantage in this Arena.

    But you CAN agree to a random card draw duel with someone if you want to. The default banlist for random draw Duels is Konami's list. But you can also choose to play Traditional Format if you desire.

    Lastly, No action is required if you wish to join. Feel free to just drop right in! =D

    It's amazing how fast we fill these things by not talking about yugioh.

    It actually took us alot longer than normal to fill the last one.

    Why are the egyptian gods limited? I mean the anime versions only i could see, but the real ones i'm afraid i don't see why.

    Well the default ones were the Anime Exclusive ones and they're alot easier to summon here regardless. And putting 3 Ras or 3 Obelisks on the field would be pretty ridiculous. Same goes for why Judgment Dragon and Dark Armed Dragon are Limited. A person could easily just plop 3 of them on the field when playing here. And they're even easier to summon. Alot easier.

    Exactly, besides, 1 copy of the God Cards is more than enough.

    and as much as I hate to admit it, I think I'm going to be Tsukumo Yuma as well due to his Utopia Monsters and the deck build I made for a Utopia/Machine type deck.

    That's cool. I don't mind at all. I look forward to it.

    ever heard of dark hole? You can have a field of 3x ra, 3x obelisk, 3x slifer, and one dark hole will kill them all. Not to mention that with the four cards needed to summon a single god you could make the much stronger move of simply setting four face-downs.
  9. Hitokiri Shinigami Shinta The Demon Slayer

    The Plains
    Not if you use Hardened Armed Dragon for helping summon them. And the Anime Exclusive ones were immune to being destroyed by card effects and other card effects could only affect them for one turn iirc.

    EDIT: And 1 copy of each god is enough. I agree with StardustXtreme. It's not like I'm banning them. I'm only Limiting them. Why would you guys want them at 3?
  10. SirFred131 Merlin's Housekeeper

    May 6, 2011
    Forbidden Chalice makes Ra useless, and it's not that good anyway, Obelisk and Slifer do nothing aside from monster control and beating, which again isn't that useful. BoM can flip anything face-down so you don't have to worry about hardened dragons. I'd rather have a single copy of quasar and four back row than 3x every god, all summoned with hardened dragon, and four back row. Yes, I know that goes over the mon zone limit.

    Still 1 copy of each is enough. Anyway just in case there were people who didn't hear me earlier I'm considering some possible new username changes if I can get permission from that person who I told I would never again change my username to.

    The usernames I'm considering are:

    1. Asbel Lhant
    2. Anakin Skywalker
    3. Light Yagami
    4. Prince Chrom

    Here, there and everywhere.
    I don't know the first or forth one but the second doesn't seem right for you as for the third I would say yeah that is quite fitting.

    My first choice was gonna be Asbel but I decided to get people's opinions. And how am I similar to Light? Just curious.

    Here, there and everywhere.
    Do I have to explain?
  15. Hitokiri Shinigami Shinta The Demon Slayer

    Jun 24, 2007
    The Plains
    I honestly am rather curious as to how you think I'm similar to him. Cuz I'm not really sure I understand.
  16. Odamadillo Twilight Town Denizen

    Here, there and everywhere.
    Alright then I will start by saying both you and Light are highly misguided people. Light wanted a new world with his justice as a base, you wanted a new world too but one where there was justice. Light found his answer in the paper of the deathnote while you found yours by hiding in the world of paper cards. Light became Kira and you became Jaden Yuki. Kira was taken down by his superior in L and Near while you were taken down by Konami itself. Do I need to go on?
  17. Hitokiri Shinigami Shinta The Demon Slayer

    Jun 24, 2007
    The Plains
    Those are indeed very good points. I'd actually kind of like to hear the rest.
  18. SirFred131 Merlin's Housekeeper

    May 6, 2011
    I must disagree with you. You say that Near and L were superior to Kira, and he lost because of that.. When really, he lost because one of his pawns moved without instruction. Even then, when he is discovered he keeps trying to fight, only to fall in disgrace. you say that Jay was taken down by Konami? He was taken down by his unwillingness to continue fighting to become stronger. Light wanted to make himself infallible, and destroy all that he deemed wrong. Jaden followed the words of his mentor as if they were infallible and argued against everything his mentor deemed wrong.
    Jaden is simply a lot more passive than Light was, at very least.
  19. Odamadillo Twilight Town Denizen

    Jun 6, 2008
    Here, there and everywhere.
    I really am going to need to tell you the whole story huh? Well Light had three major foes to face L, Mello and Near while you had Me Joey and Zane. Granted Light did best L like you had with me many times. light did beat Mello like you did Joey. As for Zane and Near both were never beaten. Light had Misa following his every command while you had Fearless to do the same at one point. Then there was Takada who became someone who followed Light's way which is what Shadow-rocks did to you. Next there is Mikami for Light who believed in him and followed him fully, Zeo was like that for you Jaden. You may not have realized it but here you have taken the same Path light did only killing yugioh monsters instead of people.
  20. Hitokiri Shinigami Shinta The Demon Slayer

    Jun 24, 2007
    The Plains
    It's both things really.

    Still I could never bring myself to do some of the things Light did. I couldn't exploit a woman's feelings or kill a woman who I knew loved me. Misa was madly in love with Light and he was going to kill her. The only thing that stopped him was that Rem said she would take his life if he took hers. But I do have a rather strong sense of justice as Light does. I believe that the wicked deserve punishment and shouldn't live.

    EDIT: How did you post that 4 minutes ago when your last activity says 15 minutes ago? o_O

    DOUBLE EDIT: Me being a weak player WAS a big part of it yes. But I'm also fed up with what Konami keeps doing to the game. I was able to tolerate Synchros, I tolerated Snatch Steal, And I was even able to tolerate BLS getting unbanned. But Mirror Force and Torrential Tribute and Stall Cards being moved down on the list is definitely where I draw the line...Oh and I also don't like the new decks that are being made. I believe I've already said all this before.

    TRIPLE EDIT: And I again apologize for listening to my mentor. I've definitely learned my lesson not to listen to him. I learned that months ago.

    Interesting deduction.
