It’s been a while since YCS Rimini. Two months have passed and the Yu-Gi-Oh! world is not the same anymore. We have a new Forbidden & Limited List, new sets have been released and the metagame looks very different than last summer. Now we’re back with top Level duelling, this time making our first stop in Liverpool, UK. It won’t get any better than this! Stay tuned for all the action in Liverpool!
As I’m from Austria and English is not my native language I have to admit that I’m having a hard time trying to understand local players. The local dialect is really something special. I looked it up and Wikipedia told me that the dialect even has a special name. It’s called Scouse. Well, I love Scouse! Liverpool is also very special since it’s the hometown of “The Beatles”. I guess that most of our readers are too young to have lived at that time (just like myself): The Beatles were one of the most influential pop/rock bands of their times. Even nowadays Liverpool is known for its vivid music scene.
I already had time to visit the famous Albert Docks. They are close to the venue and I found them very impressive. I was told that they the UNESCO made them World Heritage. So it’s definitely worth visiting.
The weather outside is pretty bad. I was told it is the typical Liverpool weather at this time of the year. A little fog, some wind and light rain every now and then. Well, if that is not the perfect weather for a great Yu-Gi-Oh! experience!
We have 810 players in attendance today. We will play 7 rounds of Swiss today and 3 more tomorrow. Then we well be cutting the field to Top 32 and continue with the Knock-Out Rounds. As usual there will be a huge amount of Public Events today and even more on Sunday. The new YCS Price Card Number 93: Utopia Kaiser is also handed out to the winners of YCS Liverpool. The Main Event has just started going into Round 1! Enjoy the coverage and play fair!
