I was playing a Gemini Knight Deck at my National Championship and it was very hard as I had to overcome both Vincent Ralambomiadana and Johan Descamps. It’s my first big title, but I’m very happy to have won it!

Make sure you can concentrate on the match and stay focused. Also be aware of the time that’s still left in the round, it can make the difference.

[p][b]How do you like Amsterdam so far?[/b][/p]
[p]
I’m having a blast! It’s a great experience; the best part was exchanging ideas with players from around the world and I think I learned a lot.

[p][b]What do you like the most about the videogame?[/b][/p]
[p]
The game takes care of shuffling, so it doesn’t take so long. It also makes sure that all the official rules are followed, so you don’t even need a judge. Oh, and we can play with some Japanese cards, which is also great!

I want to greet my friends from Lyon and my family at Reunion Island!

I think it’s important to always stay polite, keep a level head and not get too excited. Otherwise you sometimes make mistakes that could have been avoided!

[p][b]What do you like the most about the videogame?[/b][/p]

I really like the fact that I can stay at home to play. You don’t have to go out, but it still feels like the real deal, like a normal tournament!
[/p]
[p][b]Do you want to give some shout outs or send a message to your friends?[/b][/p]

Yes, I would like to thank all my friends for supporting me and cheering me on and let them know that I’m sorry I couldn’t make it. I also want to thank Konami for providing us with such an exciting event!

I almost ended up not qualifying for the National Championship, but gained the upper hand in a complicated situation. It felt rather redeeming to win it after that and I’m really happy that I’m here. I had to play against Blackwings and was paired against Levi after that, I won game 1, he won game 2 and in game 3, I won on my second turn!

You have to be very experienced. You have to play a lot against good players that can help you to become a better player. And you do need some luck, too.

It’s been really fun! Regardless of how the tournament goes, I’m really enjoying myself!

[p][b]What do you like the most about the videogame?[/b][/p]
[p]
I feel a lot saver that there’s less of a chance that the game state gets messed up. It’s a lot cleaner and that’s one of the best aspects of it!
[/p]
[p][b]Do you want to greet some friends?[/b][/p]
[p]
I’d like to give a shout to Jeff Jones! I really think he should have been here, but unfortunately, he didn’t make it. He’s a really good player, he’s been trying to make it to Worlds a few times already and I’ll keep my fingers crossed that he’ll do so next year!
