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.

I don't see a problem flooding the market with common cards. 1) It is more forgiving for new players to buy good cards early. 2) Marker fluctuations from commons in LD missions (like Ashiko and Jeff) are not nearly as abusable. 3) Punishing people who try to manipulate the market and stockpile for common CR's evens the market, and makes it a safer place to do business.

So...a mode where your opponent cant leave if they are dont say, no wonder the other modes have been lacking.

Common cards as rewards:
3 per day out of as you can guess, common cards, that said the amount of common cards is quite high, high enough to make it difficult to get anything good.
Still it's a free card, and the enemy never quits.

Think about using Kate as your Mission Slave...

Inb4 the devs ruin this by making it a mode where you can't grind missions.

Just checked the number of how many people are currently online and in the rooms playing. The duel mode has 2997 players. All the other game modes have 3891 players combined, with deathmatch Standard having only 4 people online. This mode in it's current state cannot be continued. It's killing all the other game modes. Please put in level limits, or make it so people can't complete their missions in this room.

Wonder if UR actually made it so quitters and timeouts counted as KO's we'd have less people crowding the duels and playing normal modes...

@Pijanac - it's just because it's new. Though a lot of people (myself included) only play daily to get the 3 cards, after you have done that, there's no point in playing against Kate.

Maki_mUR: It's true that people usually go to this mode for the common cards, but also quote from others, It's a guaranteed chance to complete mission that require KOs or poison effect. It was FRUSTRATING when I get one step closer to completing a ko mission only to have my opponent wuss out and quit or time out when I was so close to a ko.smiley.
