Come and fight Kate in the new DUEL game mode and win cards and battle points! Every day, Kate will set 3 challenges: fight her and win common cards. Then, if you're feeling on form, you can carry on fighting her after having won the 3 daily cards and go on to win battle points.Every 24 hours, 3 new challenges will be available as well as new common cards to be won.
Click here to take up the challenge!
For the time being, the duel mode is available in Beta. We are planning to keep a close eye on what happens in terms of results (number of players, number of games, impact on the market, etc.) and will then make a decision about whether to keep it, amend it or simply get rid of it.

Too bad about this new change. Duel mode just felt more relaxing to play and experimenting with various cards and decks, plus players don't have to worry about intentional slow players or worry about losing streaks. Plus the room is probably helpful for the ones who don't have the best internet connection and don't want to lose a match in PvP due to lost connection.
Do people actually use Duel mode to 'test' or 'experiment' new decks? Kate's tendency to randomly 10-pill round 1 or 2 doesn't make her the most reliable indicator of your deck being good against real opponents.
If UR wasn't against other humans I wouldn't play. It might be 'relaxing', but is it not also horribly boring? I just don't understand, that's all.
1) Number of Duel Mode battles increases as you level up:
lvl 1-5 = 5 (1 card)
lvl 5-15 = 15 (2 cards)
lvl 15-25 = 25 (3 cards)
25+ = Same number as our level (lvl 45 gets 45 battles). It's a reason to level up after you have all the leaders.
2) Duel Mode battles as a consolation prize on the slot machine
3) A certain number of fights in other modes would allow you to play more Duel Mode fights, numbers could change when UR feels a certain mode it's being played less. (you could restrict this to wins in other modes)
4) Duel Mode becomes unlimited after level X.
5) A series of quests on other modes to unlock Duel Mode for that month.
6) No more cards/Clintz in Duel Mode after level X, just BP and ability to advance missions.
7) No more Clintz/BP award, just the ability to advance missions.
Duel Mode is great for missions !! The common cards are crap anyway so it don't matter if it is one card or none but a limit on how many times you are allowed to play in the room is nonsense a limit forces players on missions to go and play with other players that will make it harder and longer to complete missions UR is trying to force us into a bad situation after creating Duel Mode that was a great addition for players on missions if you force a limit on duel mode who is not to say that soon more limits will be implemented? The perfect solution would be to make the AI more intelligent, then no one would abuse Duel Mode but as it stands Kate sucks and I for one like my odds against her when I am playing for missions and when I am done with poison and heal missions I will have to move on to tourney, survivor and elo missions
