Shield Trigger ruling change.

Post by Yami_Michael on 26.02.17 5:51

Seemed important enough news to post here, even if there is a rulings forum.

Rather than breaking shields one at a time, they are now broken at the same time.

The player who owned the shields can use their trigger abilities in any order they like.

The rule will be active after March 25 (set release), More details about the rule change will be on the takara website at the end of the week.



As noted, it makes some cards stronger, (DNA Spark / Rev Taiman) but others weaker (Clock. Deadbrachio)

TCG players could choose to stick with the old method if they wanted to, up to the individual players I guess.

Wow, this is a big change! Shocked It doesn't sound that extreme but it is game changing. This will cause some mix-up for a long time, I'm certain of that. Online dueling platforms won't be the same.

In TCG, I also recommend generally sticking with the old method of breaking shields. There are now at least few rule changes that differentiate OCG from the old-school TCG.

I'm sure that the majority of the change was for http://duelmasters.wikia.com/wiki/Super_Shield_Trigger to be used easier.

But it makes those Revolution-2 spell cycle stronger as well (Revolution Spark, Revolution Spiral, Revolution Guillotine, Revolution Million and Revolution Taiman).

That would definitely make sense since SST would be very unlikely to trigger otherwise. Now it's actually pretty likely considering how more fast-phased the game is getting block by block.

This is very interesting because i have to admit, though i already knew it, i often to this incorrectly. I often played it the way of new ruling here. Anyway, good to know.

It would actually make clock and deadbrachio weaker. Good because those 2 are so annoying.
