Frequently Asked Questions About Yesterday’s Article
The responses to yesterday’s article have been quite interesting! Many Duelists have been tirelessly trying to figure out what kind of card I could possibly be referring to, others are convinced they already know the answer, some are in this weird Emperor’s New Clothes situation where they’re absolutely convinced they see a picture, and more than a couple think I’ve entirely lost leave of my senses. I’m glad everyone is having fun discussing, but there are a few very common misconceptions that I’d like to clear up before they go too far. As such, I’ve made this handy FAQ about yesterday’s article to help you organize your thoughts and focus your creative energies in the right direction.
Q: Have you lost your mind?
Q: Is this a joke?
Q: Are you just trolling us?
Q: Are you sure there’s no image there? My computer sometimes doesn’t load the images properly.
A: There’s no image.
Q: Is this a card creation contest?!
A: No. There is no card creation contest, and Konami does not accept game ideas from outside sources for a variety of reasons, most of them legal.
Q: Is the card “the friends we made along the way” or “our own imagination” or some sort of motivational poster material?
A: No, it’s a real card in Raging Tempest.
Q: Is this a political statement?
Q: Why can’t I find what this card does anywhere on the internet?
A: You can, it’s in yesterday’s article. I suppose the actual question is “why can’t I find any record of such a card existing” and the reason for that is because it doesn’t exist yet. It won’t until the Raging Tempest Sneak Peeks happen on February 4th and 5th.
Q: So, really, what does this monster do?
A: Nothing, as indicated by its effect text being a big blank space with nothing in it.
Q: Do you really expect us to believe that a monster that does nothing can be one of the strongest monsters of 2017?
A: The basic Metalfoes are 4 monsters that don’t do anything, and they’re a defining force in tournaments right now. I don’t think it’s too hard to believe that another monster with no effect will be good in an environment where there are already 4 of them. 5 if you count Blue-Eyes White Dragon, though it’s fallen greatly in both usage and success rate since October.
Q: When can we see this card?
A: January 24th. I said “in a few weeks” yesterday, but perhaps I should have just straight up said “3 weeks.” Until then, I hope you all keep enjoying yourselves trying to puzzle things out!
