Restricted and Banned Cards in .hack//ENEMY TCG

The .hack//ENEMY TCG Rules Committee has been watching the tournament scene for the past few months and has found certain cards to be problematic in the environment. These cards have led to a non-interactive environment and extreme negative play experiences. Effective April 28, 2004, the following changes will take place:

Restricted Cards (limit of one per deck)

Coma (1T1) - When used in multiples, this card resulted in players missing as many as 20 consecutive turns or more. This is unacceptable for tournament play and beyond the scope of the original design of the card.

Banned Cards (cannot be played in sanctioned tournaments)

Corrupted Field (1T2) - Since .hack//ENEMY is designed with many replacement and sacrifice costs and effects, this card was too abusive in tournament play. Also, in many tournament environments, the actual swapping of seats becomes difficult and time consuming.

Hidden, Forbidden, Holy Ground (2P3) - Combined with other cards such as Newt Necklace that make it difficult to play hidden cards, this card created a "lockdown" situation in which one player was unable to play at all.

A new tournament resource page will be added (.hack//ENEMY TCG Banned and Restricted Lists) to reflect this information. The .hack//ENEMY TCG Rules Committee will continue to monitor the tournament environment and may add or remove cards from these lists when necessary.

A player may NOT use Gate Hacking (1P4) to place a banned card in their discard pile. A player may use Gate Hacking to place a restricted card in their discard pile (even if a copy of that restricted card is already in the deck).

Decipher has already removed all Corrupted Field cards from the Level Up! prize support kits, so players will not receive a banned card as a prize. Since Coma is still playable, it’s quantities in Level Up! prize support kits have not been altered in any way.
