Not sure if anyone noticed it yet, but I'll remind you people about it;
- Quote :
- ¹ SHONEN JUMP Magazine cards are NOT legal for play in Europe, Oceania, Central, or South America, as SHONEN JUMP Magazine is not officially distributed there. If a SHONEN JUMP and/or Graphic Novel card has been released through another method, then that card is legal for play.
² Yu-Gi-Oh!-related Graphic Novel cards are only legal for play in Europe, Oceania, Central, or South America if that Graphic Novel was specifically distributed there. (This is rare.)
This means that specific cards cannot be used outside of specific countries, because they were orginally not mass produced.
Illegal card list for Europe, Oceania, Central, or South America (SHONEN JUMP Magazine card):
Cards that can only be played in Europe, Oceania, Central, or South America South America if that Graphic Novel was specifically distributed there. (This is rare.) (Yu-Gi-Oh!-related Graphic Novel cards);
I only have 1 thing to say about this crap:
Think about it. They do this to counter the people who import their cards. Why would the players that don't have the right connections or are unable to import cards should be punished by players who are able to do this?
They also do this to counter the sell of singles. Yu-Gi-Oh is and will always be a business and if Konami can't sell enough booster packs, they won't have enough to support the game with new cards and they'll need to cut specific business, like bringing the new booster back in 6 months instead of the new 3 months.
The only thing I'm mad about this that it took them way too long to do this and it's still confusing as hell, since it's hard to tell which card is released from where.

My country isn't supported or under Konami TCG Banner to start with, so like I care.
But it will be dull to see Infernity bite the dust on other country beside US and OCG region.
