Tag Duel Tournament IX is an event that occurred in Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links. It is a reworked version of the previous Tag Duel Tournament.

Tag Duel mechanics[edit]

Tag Duels in this event play with the following rules:

  • Each team begins the Duel with 6000 Life Points.
  • Players on the same team share the same field and Life Points but have separate hands, Decks, Extra Decks, and Skills.
    • Players have knowledge of any face-down cards on their side of the field regardless of their owner.
    • Automatically activated Skills activate when they meet their activation conditions regardless of which player of the team is currently active.
  • The Battle Phase cannot be conducted on Turn 1, but can be on subsequent turns.
  • Players and teams alternate turns; Player 1 of Team A moves, then Player 1 of Team B, then Player 2 of Team A, then Player 2 of Team B, then back to Player 1 of Team A, etc.
  • During a team's turn, on the opposing team the last player to take their turn is the active player (so they are the player that handles the activation of cards and effects during that turn). During Turn 1, the player of the opposing team who will not move until Turn 4 is the active player.
    • The human player will move on Turn 1 if their team goes first, or on Turn 4 if their team goes second. This is because the human player is always the active player of their team during Turn 1.

Event Flow[edit]

The event is divided in three Cups: DM Cup, 5D's Cup, GX Cup, and Special Cup. The GX Cup was made available on August 22, 2020, while the Special Cup was added on August 24, 2020. Each cup must be cleared before moving to the next, and completed cups can be replayed at any time. For the first three cups, only partners from its respective Duel World can be picked.

Cup Multiplier Friendship Letters
DM x 1 7
5D's x 2 11
GX x 4 17
Special x 5 20

During this event, the player earns Friendship Letters by Dueling in Duel World (except at the Gate or against The Vagrant) or Ranked Duels. These can be used to challenge opponents in the tournament. Players also received a bonus of 15 Friendship Letters daily by entering the Tag Duel Tournament area.

At the end of each Duel, the player earns 1 Tag Coin for each 100 Assessment Points (for a maximum of 80 Tag Coins). A multiplier is applied after the 80 coin cap, depending on the difficulty of the Tournament.

From August 25, 2020 onwards, Strings & Arkana can appear as Challengers. After completing a Tag Duel, there is a chance they will appear instead of the next Tag Team. Friendship Letters are not used when Dueling against the Challengers, and bonus Coins are rewarded for defeating them.

Changes[edit]

Two new tag partners were added: Luna, and Tyranno Hassleberry. Also, Yami Yugi was made available again.

Opponents[edit]

Despite pairs of opponents having one Deck name, the two opponents actually have distinct Decks.
