Yu-Gi-Oh Online – Duel Accelerator – Closing down within the next 6 months

Hello Nurglings.

A sad day for all Yu Gi Oh Online fans.

It seems dueling Network managed to do something, and that was making the less popular official online gaming service: shut down. No I don’t really know if it’s thanks to dueling network. Below follows the official announcement and I will miss the game for sure, especially the great tournaments and easy game play.

As when any online multiplayer game shuts down, I feel sorry for the people that invested a lot of time and money to enhance the experience. I feel for you…

Dear fans of Yu-Gi-Oh! ONLINE,

Yu-Gi-Oh! ONLINE DUEL ACCELERATOR is an online game for PC which allows players from all over the world to compete in online duels following the rules of Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D’s OCG that thanks to all of you reached world wide popularity.

Though the Yu-Gi-Oh! ONLINE adventure started in 2005 and it was enjoyed by so many worldwide, unfortunately this adventure must come to an end. Due to internal decisions Yu-Gi-Oh! ONLINE DUEL ACCELERATOR will go offline on 09/30/2012 17:00 Pacific Standard Time .

You may find a detailed schedule for the next 6 months and a basic FAQ at the bottom of the page.

Our heartfelt gratitude go out to all the dedicated and loyal duelists all over the world who have shared their passion with us, contributed to build this service and all those who have participated. We hope that you enjoyed your duels and trades and look forward to having you compete against friends worldwide with the next great Konami game.

We’re commited to supporting service until the very last day.
Please excuse the inconveniences.

Your Yu-Gi-Oh! ONLINE team

Until next time Nurglings, take care.
Cya soon!

  1. is this real? considering the date im gonna wait and see if this turns out to be true
    i hope this isnt true considering the amount of money i put into the game 😥

    • This message was actually posted before April 1st so I dont believe it to be a joke. 😦 Sadly.


      • it was before April 1st in you’r time zone But it was actually April 1st in mine , did you think about their timezone? ,its the 2nd now here but i’m just correcting you.

      • The time the news was posted on the acctual site was the 29th (Mars) if I remember correctly. It was posted on my blog the 1st tho. So no joke.

      • Yea too bad ,I’ve Spent way too much on that game, it wasn’t perfect but it was the best online yu-gi-oh game out there for sure. 😦

      • Yea it sucks that the game will be closing down, the people that spent a lot of money in to the game should really get some compensation, even if it’s just something small.

        By the way, do you know about Dueling Network? You should probably check that out if you want to keep on playing online. ^^
