So the new mechanic has been revealed, its called Link Summon

Article from Ygorganization:

Introducing Link Summon and changes to the Dueling Field (as well as Pendulum Summons)

New Link Monster


Example Card: Decode Talker

Decode Talker
DARK Cybers-Type Link Effect Monster
LINK 3
ATK 2300
Materials: 2 or more Effect Monster
(1) This card gains 500 ATK for each monster Linked to it.
(2) When an opponent’s card effect that targets a card you control is activated: You can Tribute 1 of your monsters Linked to this card; negate that activation, and if you do, destroy it.

Further Information

Look at those distinctive Link Markers! Use these Markers to develop brand new strategies!
It goes into your Extra Deck!

There are 2 ways of Link Summoning!!
>>Send Materials to the Grave Equal to the Link Number!
>You can Link Summon something from your Extra Deck by sending the same number of monsters that meet the material requirements written in the card’s effect box, whose total numbers equal to the LINK number, from the field to the Graveyard
>>Decrease Materials by Using Link Monsters
>Link Monsters are treated as the same number of materials as its LINK Number, however to use them you must match the requirements written on the card!

IN THE CASE OF “DECODE TALKER”
You can either
-Use 3 Effect Monsters
or
-Use 1 Link 2 Effect monster and 1 Effect Monster

Pay Attention to the Direction of the Link Markers!
>The Zones pointed to by each Link Marker and the cards in them will be affected by the Link Monster, and this will create new strategies!

They have no defense…!!!
Link monsters have no defense points and they have the special characteristics of being unable to change their battle positions or turning to defense position by effects.


New Field



The Newly Created Extra Monster Zone
>You can only use one of them!<

When the Duel begins, neither Extra Monster Zone is considered to belong to a specific player. When a player Special Summons a monster to one of them, that Zone then becomes treated as part of that player’s field, and the other then becomes treated as the other player’s field. The tactics of a Duel will change drastically depending on who can grab an Extra Monster Zone first! An Extra Deck Monster can only be Summoned to the Extra Monster Zone! But if you Summon a Link Monster to one of the Extra Monster Zone first, you can utilize it to its max potential!

*Extra Deck Monsters, like Fusion, Synchro, Xyz, and Link, cannot be Summnoned to the Main Monster Zone, beware!

– What has been the [Monster Zone] up till now is now the [Main Monster Zone]
– The [Pendulum Zone] is on the left and right of the [Spell & Trap Zone]. You can use it as a normal [Spell & Trap Zone], but when you place Pendulum cards there, it is treated as the [Pendulum Zone]



The Zones Pointed at by Link Markers Can be Used to Bring Out Extra Deck Monsters
Although Extra Deck Monsters can only be Summoned to the Extra Monster Zone Normally, if you have a Link Monster in the Extra Monster Zone, the Zones pointed at by their Link Markers can be used to Summon Extra Deck Monsters! So if you get out a Link Summon quickly, you can bring out Fusion, Synchro, and Xyz Monsters in succession. Of course, you can Summon another Link Monster in one of these Zones, so if you play your cards right, you can fill your entire Main Monster Zone with Extra Deck Monsters! The new metagame will require careful consideration of where to place monsters!
Super Quick Q&A for the New Rules!
Q: If Special Summoned an Extra Deck Monster normally, and it goes to the Graveyard, and I want to Special Summon it with “Monster Reborn”, which Zone does it go to?
A: It goes into the Main Monster Zone, not the Extra Monster Zone.
Q: Can you use “Book of Moon” on Link Monsters?
A: Link Monsters cannot be face-down, so you cannot target them with “Book of Moon”.

Q: If your opponent’s only monster is in their Extra Monster Zone, can you attack them directly?
A: If there’s a monster in the Extra Monster Zone, unless some kind of effect is in play, you would have to attack that monster first.

Q: Can you destroy 2 Set Spell & Trap Cards in your Left Most and Right Most Spell & Trap Zones with “Wavering Eyes”?
A: The Left Most and Right Most Spell & Trap Zones are regular Spell & Trap Zones, and do not become Pendulum Zones unless you activate a Pendulum Card in them, or if a Pendulum Card is placed in them by a card effect. A Set Spell & Trap Card in either of those Zones cannot be destroyed by “Wavering Eyes”.


Original Article fro Ygorganization: https://ygorganization.com/memberdrawing6/


so what do you guys think?? personally i loved this, as with all other summoning condition it opens up more possible playstyle and this one is involving zones, meaning there'll be mind games about which zone to place your card and zone switching mechanic could get relevant

cant wait to play this ^^

Just realized that extra deck monsters get nerfed HARD, like, unlike you can summon a link monster with a lot of arrows, its basically impossible to control 3 or more extra deck monsters at the same time, main deck plays will get more relevance and hopefully the genwunner will complain less about synchro/xyz/pendulum/link monsters XD

For the devs/coders, this might be a selfish request but when you guys working to make this, could you separate it from "normal" duel? Like another tab below LAN mode for LINK DUEL.

I don't like the new mechanic.From what I understood you can summon only 1 extra deck monster at first and if you summon a link monster you can summon more extra deck monsters but the thing i most dislike is the new spell/trap pendulum zones.

Concerns:
-Can I Pendulum Summon more than 1 monster from the Extra Deck if the Extra Monster Zone is unoccupied?
-Can I use Pendulum Monsters and Tokens to Link Summon Link Monsters?
-Can I use the monster in the Extra Monster Zone as a Material for another Summon? A Frightfur Fusion Monster for Frightfur Sabre-Tooth for example.

Other than that, I don't have anything against the new mechanic, I like how they are generic Contact Fusions for various Decks and pretty much serve to enable other Summons than being the win cons alone.

Well for the first one, probably not since there's only extra monster zone, though i can see they make a ruling that pendulum summoned monster can go to main monster zone to prevent pendulum to get completely destroyed

1) Yes. The article explicitly said the Extra Deck monsters are Fusion, Synchro, Xyz and Link: Pendulum Monsters are still Main Deck monsters, even when summoned for the Extra.
2) Don't know. The article said that the monsters are sent to the Graveyard, but that wording is similar to the one for Synchro Summons. We'll need official rulings for that.
3) I think so: the Extra Zone is reserved for Extra Deck monster, but it's still a Monster Zone. Again, though, we'll need rulings for that.

unless you have a monster zone pointed by link monster's arrow (including your opponent's link monster, if they have arrow pointed to your zones), yeah, that's why people everywhere are freaking out

Yes please! I really want to be able to play my old Junk Doppel deck (and other decks like it) without the new stupid restrictions. Please make there be some way to play with the old rules and ignore the "only one extra deck monster unless you have link monsters" mechanic.

I just read through the wikia and actually they are not that bad and decks like the zoodiacs which i relly hate are almost destroyed but I'm concerned when and will it be possible to implement the changes to YGOPRO.:thup :thup :S :S And I agree that there should be an option to play by the old(current)rules.

R.I.P. Synchron, Zoodiacs and D/D/D. All hail our Emperors of Advance Summoning. The prophecies of Treeborn Frog has come into fulfillment, at last.

In all seriousness though, Extra Deck got nerfed HARD, even a Kuriboh can destroy it by battle. Pendulum got nerfed slightly, but still playable. If anything, I think they become more balanced. (Can I get my Wavering Eyes back now?)

I wonder what will happen to the metagame later. I'm not complaining though, I'm actually pretty interested.

Link is the new Synchro, because it changes the definition of "Classic" in Yu-Gi-Oh!

Now this is how I play:

I like the idea of link monsters, but I don't want to be forced to use them just to use synchros or fusions.
