Strange Players

Dueling Network is full of all kinds of weirdos.

One guy A.S.S.'s me for explaining that Continuous Spells like Card Trader can't be played during the Standby Phase.

And another forfeits when I tell him that my Effect Veiler won't destroy his Black Rose Dragon after negating it's effect.

A third kept trying to destroy my Ally of Justice Catastor by attacking it first with his Blue-Eyes White Dragon and then his Exploder Dragon. I had to correct him twice. He offered a draw (he technically had more Life Points), but I politely declined. I turn the game around later and win.

Then there's the guy who offered a duel with the note: "Easy win." I needed to test out a new deck so I accepted his offer. However, during the game he kept making misplay, after misplay, until I realized he was blatantly cheating. After taking a deep breath I spent the next fifteen minutes explaining game mechanics to him. After seeing that his trolling attempts left me unfazed, he quit, leaving me with the win.

While I won most of my other games fair and square, that one A.S.S. still bothers me. Fortunately this is the first time it's happened to me so I shouldn't have to worry about any up and coming bans...hopefully.

Remember players, the game ends with you.


  1. On the third sentence, you meant him, not me and on the eighth sentence you forgot "the" between there's and guy.

    And yea, Duelnet has a lot of weirdos, bad Six Samurai players, and crappy admins haha.

  2. Thanks for the heads up. I've updated the post.

    And I hear ya, they really ought to have a better moderating team up. Someone needs to keep the bad players in check.

  3. There's a thread on DGZ where people can post up screenshots of the game-state they were in when they were unfairly ASS'ed, and DGZ members who are DN mods can review the case (pic & chat-logs, if applicable) and ban the offender for some time.

  4. The only harm an ASS does is that your rep is lowered. This could cause people to duel someone else over you but you'll always find a duel in that place. You absolutely don't have to fear getting banned for that, lol.

  5. Hmm...I guess I didn't need to get so worked up over it, lol.
