Question Synchros vs Xyz

I'm genuinely interested what everyone thinks on this. Do you guys think...

a) Xyz will take over extra decks and make synchros obsolete
b) Just compliment Synchros in most extra decks and/or combat and level the playing field and balance the game a bit, or
c) just be a passing phase and eventually fizz out

I'm really interested to know, as I'm a Fabled player and Dark World Player, and it seems one decks gonna be doing one alot and the other is gonna be doing the other, and I'm interested to see what you guys think.

I think it will be 50-50 in some decks however most will probly keep synchros for a while others will just use xyzs.

The current xyzs look pretty bad.

Synchro summoning will still be reserved for most power plays, at least for a while. XYZ summoning will be used every now and then when the time comes, and will probably populate anti-meta decks as they have a lot of Monsters of the same level. They'll never overtake Synchro summoning.

Unless we get some broken Xyz, or Konami raeps them withthe list, Synchros will not be made obsolete. Certain decks can certainly benefit from both though.

do you think good synchros will still come out? or theyll stop releasing them and wont come back for a bit? cause it seems like TGHL is the last one coming out for a while

I believe there is a synchro in generation force, and it appears to actually be a good one.

i think both will be used. some decks focus more on synchs while some focus more on xyzs. some tunerless decks will not use synchs while some full synchro decks will not use xyzs.

yeah this is what i was leaning towards. i know my dark world deck is gonna be able to xyz easily, while my fableds are gonna be more about synching, and im glad alot of people think theyre at least gonna go hand in hand, cause as a semi-budget player, building and extra deck is expensive and im still working on it as we speak lol, and i honestly love the explosive combos that synchro summoning can produce and dont wanna see that leave the game

Yeah, its part of the wording changes they are implementing. They have articles up on the site and there's a thread here.

About broken XYZ...
Some of them are getting released. If we're counting the Duel Terminal cards, synchros may get screwed badly. Thankfully, this is the most broken I found so far :

http://yugioh.wikia.com/wiki/Verz_Bahamut

What's worse is that the wiki went on to say that this card is a corruption of Brionac by the Steelswarm virus, and the virus is also corrupting other duel terminal 'worlds' such as X-Sabers, etc. Additionally, the Verz archetype is actually the main archetype of the InVerz, also known as the Steelswarms. The worst part yet? They're actually geared to stop Synchro summonings through XYZ monsters.

http://yugioh.wikia.com/wiki/Steelswarm_Roach

Just an example.

I'm a devout synchro player, and I worry about the Xyzs - they're starting to get broken, fast. Konami had better release equally powerful synchros.

Besides Utopia, there aren't any surefire XYZ staples. Some XYZ's work nicely in some decks, but they're really just nice to have support. That, and many of the boss XYZ monsters aren't particularly great. Right now they are just complimentary cards.

XYZ's are far from broken. At the moment there just aren't enough of them.

We're heading towards having a balance of staple synchros, staple xyzs, and themed tech.

If this happens, then I'd say Xyzs are a success.

Lal didn't notice the necro no jutsu.
