The Yu-Gi-Oh! CHAMPIONSHIP SERIES (YCS) presented by Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. (Konami) heads to São Paulo, Brazil for the first opportunity in 2014 for Latin American Duelists to win the company’s premier competitive series. YCS São Paulo is expected to draw hundreds of Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME (TCG) players from across Brazil and neighboring Latin American countries March 8th – 9th.
Latin American Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG Duelists eager to make their mark on the YCS level, get to test their Decks, skills and strategies as they compete head-to-head against some of the best players in their region during the course of the weekend. From the First Round of the Main Event on Saturday morning to the Final Round on Sunday, every Duelist will be playing their hardest, hoping that their game is the winning one to take them to the YCS Champion’s podium.
Duelists should make time to pre-register for the YCS São Paulo Main Event from 3:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. on March 7th as those players that pre-register and submit a Deck list will receive an all-new event-exclusive YCS Token Card! This is the first time Duelists will have a chance to grab this YCS Token Card. Registration will begin again promptly at 8:00 a.m. on Saturday, March 8th. Upon registering, Duelists will receive four Legacy of the Valiant booster packs and the previously released YCS Token Card for participating in Konami’s YCS São Paulo to commemorate the very first YCS in Brazil. The First Round will start at 10:00 a.m. and the Top 16 or 32 YCS finishers (depending on attendance) will earn invitations to participate in their 2014 World Championship Qualifier and other great prizes.
Konami will once again hold Dragon Duels for the younger players (for Duelists born in 2001 or later) on Saturday and Sunday. A new format is now in affect in which the winner of Saturday will play against the winner of Sunday to determine the YCS Dragon Duel Champion. The top four players in each of the Dragon Duel events will receive a special Dragon Duel Winner’s Medal, a Regional Game Mat, a Regional Deck Box and an invitation to their 2014 Dragon Duel World Championship Qualifier. Those who attend the Qualifier have the chance to earn an invitation to the 2014 Dragon Duel World Championship.
Duelists and spectators taking a break from the competition can participate in a wide variety of challenging and fun Public Events to push their Dueling skills to the limit! Konami will be conducting a host of events such as Regional Qualifiers, 3 vs. 3 Team Dueling, ATTACK OF THE GIANT CARD!!, Win-A-Mats, Yugi & Kaiba Reloaded Starter Deck and Cyber Dragon Revolution Structure Deck Tournaments, Duelist League, Tag Dueling and Sealed Pack Tournaments for Battle Pack 2: War of the Giants, featuring exclusive Starfoil prize cards only available at premier events.( Read more...Collapse )
