QQ: What Are Your Thoughts on the Adjusted List?

February 7th, 2016


QQ stands for Quick Questions! The Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME community has been buzzing about the new “Adjusted List” set to take effect on February 8th. This Adjusted List weakens the Performapal Pendulum Deck that is expected to dominate the competitive scene this weekend, fostering the emergence of new Decks. You can read about the impact of the February 8th Adjusted List here. I surveyed the Duelists in attendance this weekend to see how they feel about the new Adjusted List that will soon impact high-level tournaments. Check out their responses!


“It’s great! It slows down the Performapal Pendulum Deck a lot.” –James Conlon


“It’s bad for people who play Performapal Pendulum Decks. I don’t think Adjusted Lists should be a thing.” –Megan Wesley


“I think it was poorly timed.” –Koty Angeloff


“It was a nice way to balance the format, but unfair for people who got the Performapal Pendulum cards three weeks ago.” –Galo Orbea


“I love it!” –Joe Bogli


“It’s a good move. Performapal Pendulums was way too overpowered. Luster Pendulum, the Dracoslayer to 1 is a bit overkill, though.” –Eduardo Uribe


“I love the hits to Performapal Pendulums.” –Jeff Jones


“I don’t think it was fair to hit the Performage Pendulum Deck so soon. Maybe they can give it a few months next time.” –Max Reynolds


“Those changes needed to happen at some point.” –Billy Brake


“It’s great.” –Steven Logan


“It’s good. It opens up the format.” –Jorge Sanchez


“I like when things change frequently!” –Patrick Hoban


“It was fine. It fixed an overpowered Deck.” –Nathan Lawder


“I’m just glad I didn’t have a Performapal Pendulum Deck.” –Andy Schultz


“It hit too many cards, too soon.” –Steven McMearty


“I think it was way too harsh towards one Deck and came way too soon. The Performapal Pendulum Deck just arrived.” –Frazier Smith


“I don’t think alternate formats for locals are good, but I think the Adjusted List is well-placed in what it hit.” –Jonathan Moore


“I wish it were in effect for this event, but I’m happy with it. I hope it brings a more diverse tournament scene.” –Christopher Chewning


Duelists seem to have mixed feelings about the Adjusted List that takes effect on February 8th, but most of them agree that it will create a more diverse tournament environment. How do you feel about the new Adjusted List?
