World Championship this weekend
This weekend is the World Championship of Yu-Gi-Oh! in Las Vegas. If you're not up for a gamble, you can always play cards, huh?
If you want to know who ALL the representatives are, check out the Road of the King blog. He listed all the reps per country they came from.
If you want more information on the event itself, go read this FAQ page.
Also, this week the World Champion trophy cards have been revealed. Just look at them.
On event coverage, Konami will (probaly) post it on the following page: http://www.konami.com/yugioh/blog/?cat=221.
DSummon (the famous Singapore blogger) will be present (as an interpreter for the Asian reps) and update the following facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/events/620530274646211/
New European YCS - YCS Turin
While the Americans are complaining about slow communication about their YCS's, the European communication is going at an all-time high. Konami just revealed there will be another European YCS this year (that's the fifth this year, a new record!). The location will be Turin, Italy. The date will be the weekend of November 30 & December 1. More details will follow soon. Source: http://www.yugioh-card.com/uk/news/news_ycs_turin.html.
Next to that, the new YCS winner card is revealed (the empire of Digvorzhak is over), together with the new YCS mat. The card/mat is Nr. 106: Giant Hand. The card is decent, the mat looks amazing. I guess YCS Brussels/Toronto will be the first YCS's to have these cards/mats.
Change in the way we play?
And last but not least in this news week is a small article published in this week's Jump (I think it was Jump, please correct me if I'm wrong).
Yeah, I didn't understand it either, like you (probably). But the people of the Yu-Gi-Oh Edition Singapore were so kind to translate it for us.
In short, there will be changes in how we play the game (no card rule changes, but gameplay changes). And due to those changes, the September F&L list (the banlist) will be influenced as well. The changes will be published in the October issue of V-Jump (usually in stores around the third full weekend of September (20-21st).
What the change is going to be? Nobody knows for certain, but people are guessing (read: wishing) it will be about the 15-card limit of the extra deck. But honestly, who knows for sure with Lolkonami? Also, we don't know if this change will be OCG-only (like fore example, OCG YCS's?), or if the TCG will follow these new rules in the upcoming year.
More details will definitely follow.
Until next time, V out.
