Unclear effect prompt for "Penguin Champion"

  1. Bug description

The effect of “Penguin Champion” says:

If a monster(s) is Set on your field: You can Special Summon this card from your hand, then you can reduce its Level by 1 or 2.

After Special Summoning “Penguin Champion”, a prompt appears that lets the player decide whether to reduce its Level. However, the strings make it impossible to know which option corresponds with each choice.

  1. Expected behavior

The strings should be replaced as follows:

  • “Activate Penguin Champion (2)” 🠖 “Reduce Level by 1”
  • “Activate Penguin Champion (3)” 🠖 “Reduce Level by 2”
  • “Activate Penguin Champion (4)” 🠖 “Do not reduce Level”

For comparison, Project Ignis asks whether to reduce the Level. If “Yes” is selected, then a drop-down menu appears with “1” and “2” as the options.

Strings are updated manually. I haven’t had time to update the strings of every new card that comes like Penguins. So I will dot hat soon.

Sounds pretty labor-intensive! I appreciate the time and effort, but unfortunately the strings ended up even worse.

Easy fix, though. Looks like each phrase just needs to be moved one string higher.

  • The first option decreases the Level by 1.
  • The second option decreases the Level by 2.
  • The third option should just say “Do not reduce Level” or similar.


In the future, we will invite volunteers to help fix strings. Maybe you can be one of them. You just have to be able to edit the sql.

Sounds good. Let me know if you guys decide to do that.
And thanks!
