I feel like its an attempt to shift the meta, an attempt to change the flow of power in order to allow the new archetypes to thrive even harder.

Towers is going to hurt Qlis in the Kozmo Matchup. From what I was seeing Towers was the go to card because it was essentially a wall that the high tempo aggro deck couldn't get around (save for crashing with a Dark Destroyer). Towers was quite invulnerable since dealing with a 3k beater that is immune to nearly everything is kiiiiinda hard. I still feel like banning Towers was a bit overkill out of the blue but limiting it would have done nothing since players only run 1 anyway so it was necessary to make the effect.

Banning construct may as well be Shaddoll's end as a standalone deck. Now its just Shekhinaga and Winda holding down the fort. I'm gonna miss running over that fool for game with Tachyon TT_TT El Shad fusion to 1 also all but hampers their agressive and disruptive fusions during the battle phase and opponent's turn. Its not impossible now, but its going to be harder especially in a deck that essentially bricks if it doesn't draw a fusion spell which it only has 4 copies of now. Tech polymerization / the equip spell now? More than likely the equip spell will see play, and MAYBE due to the equip spell people will run more Anomalilith, Grysta, and, god forbid, Wendigo. Yep. The equip spell can be used to make Wendigo and Grysta guys. There is that at least to somewhat look forward to.

I felt like Valc was the man to ban in Nekroz since it would allow the deck to be strong but at the same time vulnerable. Valc + Unicore made the deck so troublesome in my opinion and a lot of the times at least to me, if they did not have valc or unicore, they were vulnerable. Them going straight for Shrit, Unicore and Brio outright says this banlist is a power shifter.

Rota to 1 hurts so much stuff I question that. Yeah tellars use it, but really? XD Couldn't just hit deneb? Yeah it'd butcher them but if you wanna butcher the meta why not do it blatantly? >.> I guess the rotas would basically be extra denebs in that case but still, Tellars functioning on 1 deneb? With an already small monster count, it'd get really inconsistent really fast unless they shifter to a more monster heavy version, or ran the seraphs again just as the filler so they actually draw monsters (that deck spammed traps).

BA got hit sort of the least. Qli and Dolls got their boss monster hit, yet Abyss still has 3 dante. I guess with less graffs and cirs they can't float as much which was their main strength.

Shi-En to 3? Bout time. He's so irrelevant, especially with Nekroz looking like they're leaving the meta circle unless someone gets really innovative.

Fate to 3? I remember the broke spellbook days, but Judgement day is still gone so I'll pardon fate and deal with that random Spellbook player's shenanigans as he recycles fates and sets more fates.

Overall

I feel like this banlist's purpose was to shift power. What did it do? Right now with nothing new in the TCG, it just created a power vacuum. The big 3 are feeling the pinch of the ban list finally while older decks (Sams and Spellbooks namely) are recieving a boost in play. This is now what is called an "Undefined Meta." There willl be faithful players playing the previous powerhouse decks but they aren't going to be as strong now. Their abilities are limited now. This is the time where rogue decks are going to gain some ground in the TCG until stuff from the OCG like Performages, and the rest of Kozmo come to say hi.

Oh, I almost forgot. Limited Konnahawk? Fucker gets recycled and abused like a motherfuker anyway! XD Like when does he ever hit the flippin grave? Ritual Beasts weren't even in the big meta at that. I guess Hawk was just a warning shot just in case they get out of hand.

Moral of the story: There's something like a power vacume now. More variety of decks are feasible for the time being. Rogue decks can get some revenge since the ban-list doesn't even know who or what they are.

Also as a future note: Planetellar Ptolmaios isn't being hit because Infinity isn't out in TCG so there is no reason to hit it. You best believe Performages will abuse the fact that the current banlist missed the chance to ban Ptolmaios and abuse the everliving heck out of infinity like what's going on in the OCG. I'm pretty sure Performages spamming level 4s, and maybe Tellars as well, will be the reason for Ptolmaios'undoing. I'm not sure if they will ban Infinity, similar to how when E-Dragons were running rampant but they didn't hit Big-Eyes or Dracossack, even though they were essentially Big-Eye+Dracossack.dek.
