We took a plane and flew to London. The journey was fine except Dominik and Daniel spent some hours at the airport waiting for their luggage. After registration some of us spent some time checking out Comic Con. Most will go there after the tournament. [/quote]

[b] How is the community in Austria? [/b]

Austria has a small community but large compared to population. We stick together and that’s our key to success. Michael pointed out that he made a lot of new friends in the community and is feeling comfortable with the players. One thing we are missing [in our country] is large scale tournaments on a regular basis. [/quote]

[b] Any differences in the metagame between Austria and a YCS? [/b]

Comparing local tournaments to a YCS is hard. Peter thinks that Day 1 is very similar to a Local. There are a lot of different Decks to beat. Day 2 narrows Decks down and variety is getting less as players get stronger.

[b] There are many YCS wins in front of me? Why do Austrian Duelists so well at big tournaments? [/b]

Peter points out that one of the biggest strengths the Austrian community has is its face-to-face communication. All the players are really tight and keep pushing each other. We learn from each other a lot and keep growing as players. Dominic adds that they keep developing ideas when they sit together and talk. It is also important to take time and playtest. [/quote]

[b] What are you expecting today? [/b]
[quote]
We set our goals quite high. We want to reach the “tops” tomorrow or maybe even win the event. Patrick hopes to defend last year’s title. Peter wishes him the best of luck!
