    Back to the Duel




    After the catastrophic events of Moonlight Duels, a new danger presents itself. Black holes are appearing all over the Earth, and as usual, only duelists understand what these are for. They are a portal to the past, to the precise location of Duelist Kingdom during the Honour of the King's Hand Tournament. However, this time... Yugi lost. Can you solve the mystery behind the black holes once more and restore the past to what it should have been?

    The second DAL tournament is quite the twist as black holes begin to appear around Earth! The only way to stop this mayhem is to duel your way to the top to receive a total of 5 star chips from unwitting duelist who take to the forest. Will anyone be able to survive this daring forest, let alone make it into the castle!?

    Spring/Summer 2012

    Welcome to the first of many newsletters by Duel Academy Legends! These newsletters will be seasonal, so you should receive about four per year. If you are sent any other newsletters that attempt to emulate this one and contain suspicious links, please do not click them. This is the official version, so you can trust this.
    In any case, please enjoy the newsletter, full of events, information and news!


    Moonlight Duels


    A shadow hangs over the world, as if it is bathed in a total eclipse. Meteorologists thought it was just a freak of the weather, but when the day didn't break again and the silhouette of a familiar figure appeared in front of the moon, the duelists knew what was up. However, one by one, they started vanishing. All that was left in their place were their duel disks, decks and sometimes even traces of blood. Can you solve the mystery behind the Moonlight Duels?

    The first DAL-hosted tournament is proving to be popular! The duelists have already reached the Rocket Launch site and are now attempting to beat Judas' furiously-strong deck before he can get into the rocket and go to the moon! However, will this result in the loss of a duelist or two? The moon's so powerful now that if a duelist loses another duel, there is a potential for their soul to be sucked away...

    http://duelacademylegends.forumotion.com/c10-events


    ----------


    DAL Ladder Championships


    The second tournament hosted by DAL is almost as successful as Moonlight Duels! In this tournament, players start at rank 0. If two players of the same rank duel and one beats the other, the winner goes up a rank. If however, two players of a different rank duel each other, then the ranks of the players are swapped. This leads to a hectic tournament to win as much as possible and to become the best of the best!


    You asked for it, you got it! Duel School is finally here, with Hjalmarr as our first teacher! (He's also a judge if you didn't know Razz)
    In Duel School, the best can teach the new players! Don't be afraid to step up to the bat of being a teacher either - we're always in need of one, as in Duel School, a new lesson will appear every week. There are also exams on the final week of each month for those of you who think that they are ready for the dueling world! Your efforts won't be in vain either - rewards exist for both the teachers and duelists.


    If you don't know what an achievement is, you're missing out! These are images that can go into your signature, and they look awesome! Grab some today!
    Limited-edition achievements are now available, such as Moonlight Master. If you haven't noticed, one of the achievements is a teaser for one of our upcoming events after Moonlight Duels: Back to the Duel!!

    http://duelacademylegends.forumotion.com/t42-achievements


    ----------


    The Come-And-Gone Introductory tournament


    The introductory tournament was hard-fought with some epic duels, and an all-round great tournament. The victor Shin Katari proved himself among all competitors as the strongest duelist in this tournament. We wish to introduce more tournaments in the near future and if you want to take part, then be prepared... to get your game on!



    ----------


    Minor Updates

    Alongside the other events we've had at DAL, there have been some minor updates.

    - Quotes now appear in quick reply.
    - A 'like' button exists in place of the + and - rep system we had.
    - There is now a deck test forum for the budding deck testers.
    - The image for 'lessons' has been changed.

    There are many features in this academy in which will be useful to all kinds of duelists, from beginners to Legends. I hope you can all appreciate what's on offer. We try hard to make the community a more fun and excitable dueling experience for all. To help us change and improve why dont you vote in our recent poll?

    I hope this newsletter has been a real help in unleashing the potential this academy holds. I take kindly to any suggestions offered by players/members on any improvements for this site or any suggestions on topics you would like to discuss.
