Duelist Profile: Can Aksakal

When we brainstormed what new and exciting content we could present to you this weekend, PJ came up with an idea: How about we give you a proper introduction to a Duelist and ask him a bunch of questions? We call this series the Duelist Updates, not to be confused with the patented Duelist Diary – so instead of a quick update how several Duelists are doing, we’re doing a somewhat larger update with just one Duelist.

Now that you know what to expect, head inside to learn how Can Aksakal was doing today!

Can is from Offenbach, which is only half an hour away from Frankfurt. So the way here was easy enough.

[b]Are you already qualified for the European Championship?[/b]

[b]Can:[/b] I just got back into the game 2 months ago, however, I didn’t have a chance to attend a large number of Regionals. Therefore, I tried to earn an invite today in the Last Chance Qualifiers.[/quote]
[nbsp]
[b]So how did it go?[/b]
[quote]
[b]Can:[/b] I enrolled in 4 Last Chance Qualifiers in total; 3 times, I tried it with a Constructed Deck, but I always came 1 win short – I lost in the second round where it counted the most. I also tried my luck in a Battle Pack LCQ, but didn’t really open what I wanted to see, which meant I couldn’t earn an invite there either.[/quote]

Can likes the classic cards like Light and Darkness Dragon!

[b]Argh, that’s tough. So will you still come back tomorrow?[/b]
[quote]
[b]Can:[/b] Yes, definitely! I’m a big fan of many of the Public Events; I’ll certainly enroll in another Battle Pack tournament – I quite enjoy the Sealed Format.
I’ll also try to do well in a Attack of the GIANT CARD event as well as a few Win-A-Mats![/quote]

[b]What Deck will you be playing then?[/b]
[quote]
[b]Can:[/b] I was running Dragon Rulers all day, but I might switch to an Anti Meta Deck sooner or later. I’m quite fed up with the Dragon Rulers by now.[/quote]
[nbsp]
[b]You mentioned you came back after a longer hiatus. What was it like to see how the game had developed?[/b]
[quote]
[b]Can:[/b] While I didn’t play actively, I always stayed in touch with my friends and looked over the Decklists that got published online. So I wasn’t completely out of the loop. When I stopped playing, I was running a Monarch Deck; it was quite a change with Dragon Rulers, but I certainly enjoyed the whole process of getting back into the game “full time” again! Thanks to the help of my friends, it didn’t take too long before I understood the popular archetypes and how to make the most out of your options.[/quote]
[nbsp]
[b]Any last words?[/b]

[b]Can:[/b] Thanks everyone for reading! And a special thanks to my friends from my local store in Dreieich![/quote]
