[b] Hi Billy, what made you come to YCS Bochum?[/b]
[quote] To play [ygo] in the first place! I just wanted to play the last YCS of the year. In case I scrub out I might be going to go sightseeing, but at the moment it doesn’t look like it. My deck is doing great today. Everything is going according to plan. [/quote]
[b] Have you been to Europe before?[/b]
[quote] It’s been a while since my first trip to Europe. I was at YCS Brighton at the end of 2011. That’s already 5 years ago. It was a nice experience and I always wanted to repeat it someday. Bochum seemed like a great chance to do so. [/quote]
[b] Did you notice any differences between a YCS in the US and Europe?[/b]
[quote] The biggest difference is that the rounds are longer and everybody is a little more relaxed. In the States we have to be out of the venue at a certain point of time no matter what. The competition is the same. This is a very hard and competitive environment.[/quote]
[b] What Deck are you playing today?[/b]
[quote] I‘m running my own version of Metalfoes maindecking a copy of [q scout] and [q mono]. I chose to add the Qliphort engine in order to add consistency to the deck. I wanted to be every card of my deck to be a potential Pendulum card. It’s been working out very well so far. I’m holding a 5:0 record after Round 5 and I’m feeling very confident going into the next round. [/quote]
[b] What were your expectations for this event?[/b]
[quote] My goal is to win. I want to do my best and win my fourth YCS title. MY chances are increasing the longer the tournament goes on. As a professional duelist I want to do my best and take my chances. I try to make a living of what I love to do![/quote]
[b] Any final words? [/b]
[quote] I want to give shoutouts to everyone who’s watching and all of my fans holding it down for me. Shoutouts to KDE America as well! Thanks for a of your support, I do this for you![/quote]
