The newest game in the

Yu-Gi-Oh!

franchise was released last Wednesday (19):

Master Duel

is available for

PC

,

Xbox

,

PS4

,

PS5

and

Nintendo Key

. To get a good start in the game and your first deck, you should follow some tips and know where to invest your resources.

Game Modes

Master Duel

has arrived with two game modes available, let's talk about each one.

Duel:

Duels are

PvP

matches, where we can play

Free Duels

and

Ranked Duels

. In

Ranked

you earn points (for

Duel Pass

) and rank up, you will always receive

Gems

upon reaching a new rank.

Solo:

The

Solo

mode works like a campaign mode, where the player ventures into

PvE

matches (Single Player), advancing their progress and unlocking new stories. We also find tutorials in the middle of these campaigns, which show all the mechanics of

Yu-Gi-Oh!

. Both tutorials and

Solo

matches will provide you with rewards such as

Gems

,

Cards

and more.

Rarities

Like most card games,

Master Duel

also has a rarity system. In the game you can find cards of these rarities: -

Common

(N); -

Rare

(R); -

Super Rare

(SR); -

Ultra Rare

(UR).

How to get resources?

Gems:

Gems

are like a gold, used to buy

packs

or offers. You can acquire them through

Duel Pass

,

Solo

mode and

Missions

. So play

Solo Mode

a lot, it's your biggest source of

Gems

.

CP:

CPs

are equivalent to

Arcane Dust

from

Hearthstone

, and are used to generate specific cards in-game. You can earn them in the

Duel Pass

by dismantling

Cards

and completing some

Missions

.

Where to invest your Gems?

Now that you've earned a lot of

Gems

, you should know where to invest them for your first

deck

.

Duel Pass:

The

Duel Pass

is your priority, the

Master Duel

offers the golden

Duel Pass

for only

600 Gems

, and you can unlock it without putting real money into the game. The golden pass will give you the same

600 Gems

(returning the amount invested), plus

100 CP

โ€“

UR

and more rewards! The

Duel Pass

has a duration of

75 days

, you will finish it easily. To level up in the pass, you must play

Ranked Duels

or

Event Duels

to earn points:

50

to

100

points for playing a duel (important: you will not earn points if you surrender),

120

points if you win. From grade

1

to

30

, the points required to grade up vary between

50

and

90

points, and from grade

31

, exact

100

points will be required.

Bundle Deal:

Here you will receive your first cards; try to buy the

Bundle Deal

. There are currently three bundles, and each one of them cost

750 Gems

, providing

10 Master Packs

and

1 UR card

(referring to the bundle). It is recommended to buy all three, as only

10 boosters

cost

1,000 Gems

. You save

250

for each bundle (

750

savings if you buy all three) and you still get an extra

UR

(

3 URs

if buy the three bundles).

Packs:

Did you see that got some keys while opening your

Master Packs

These keys are

Secret Packs

that you unlocked, invest the rest of your gems in these packs. Look for some deck you want to build and see if you have the

Secret Pack

of that archetype, then you can buy them. If you don't have, just use

CP

to generate a

SR

or

UR

card of this archetype, so you will release your

Secret Booster

for

24 hours

.

Eldlich

;

Sky Striker

;

Virtual World

;

Tri-Brigade

;

Prank-kids

. For those unfamiliar with the Yu-Gi-Oh, I recommend the

Eldlich
