Here is What happened:

Due to intellectual property issues, I have removed many images from the site. Due to the short timeframe I had to implement this, the UI may be unstable while I work out the kinks. Please bear with this for now.

I will keep you updated as things progress.



Here is What Happens if you try to see the Cards:


You can still read the card name and the effect, but you can not see the card image.



Here is a post from a Dueling Network Tournament Organizer.


Konami has no involvement in this matter according to this :
https://ygorganization.com/cd-order-filed-against-dueling-network/

A law firm claiming to be acting on the behalf of Nihon Ad Systems (NAS), an animation production and licensing company that currently manages many of the rights of the Yu-Gi-Oh! series, has filed a cease and desist order to the popular third-party online duel simulator.
According to head administrators from Dueling Network, the website was ordered to remove all imagery relating to the Yu-Gi-Oh! trading card game and animated series.
Currently, there is no evidence to imply any involvement on the behalf of Konami.
In addition, based on the information we currently know, the C&D order is limited to DN. It will not affect the Wikia-hosted Yu-Gi-Oh! Wiki or our own site, YGOrg, which are legal entities independent from DN and should be protected under the rules of Fair Use.
We’ll keep you updated if more information comes to light.
