I was facing somebody who was using dark armed dragon. It took too long to explain that 5 was not exactly equal to 3...
I don't go on DN (I don't have an account and the site seems down or errored), but I used to have to explain things a lot to my brother when we first started Yu-Gi-Oh. However, I though something was fishy with him. he seemed to have extra cards in his hand at time and I accused him of cheating and adding them to his hand. Then, one day I did and he borke down to my mom and he nver ever did that again. But, he likes to straighten his deck and takes 3 minutes to do so and then he often looses in hand cards or on field cardes in it (supposedly, I think he's cheating, but he'll probably cry to mom eventually).
Also, lol, my friend had this rule when I first started dueling him. What was it you ask? It was that during the end phase if less then five cards were in are hand we'd draw until we had five cards. Now I don't understand that?
Anyone else have bad/laughable mistake IRL duel experience?
P.S. If you had to explain to a person that 5 doesn't equal 3, then they're either a really stinky cheater or they need to go back to first grade, lol!
The MST stuff reminds me back when I still dueled online, in KCVDS. It was with Dust Tornado though, and it was because of its secondary effect. Opponent claimed he could set a Spirit Message with it, then activate it since Destiny Board was face-up, thereby speeding up Destiny Board. Apparantly, placing it on the field with Dust Tornado would bypass the effect that Spirit Message cards can only be placed on the field by Destiny Board.
