Day 1 of YCS Bochum 2018 is in the books. After 8 Rounds of Swiss and 14 hours of intense Dueling we cut the field down for Day 2. The Top 444 players have returned today to play 3 more Rounds of Swiss before we cut to Top 32. The tension is rising and we are looking forward to crowning a new YCS champion!
Good morning Duelists and welcome to the second day of YCS Bochum 2018. Yesterday we rewrote history! In 2016 YCS Bochum set a new attendance record turning out to be the biggest European event ever. This weekend, we had almost 2.000 Duelists making this the largest YCS ever in Europe and the second largest YCS worldwide. After pre-registration we already knew this is going to be huge, but we couldn’t foresee the enthusiasm of you out there. Today, Duelists with 15 points or higher will return for Day 2 of the Main Event. Most of them still have a chance of claiming the title. Those holding an X:2 record are on the bubble. One more loss and their chances of moving on to the Top 8 are shattered. The tension is high and staying focused will get harder. We will see 3 more rounds of Swiss before we cut to Top 32 and continue with the Knock-Out portion of the event. At the end of the day we will have the first European YCS champion of 2018.
