Day 1 of YCS Milan 2018 is in the books! After 8 Rounds of Swiss and almost 12 hours of intense Dueling we cut the field down for Day 2. Every Duelist with 15 points or higher is permitted to proceed to Day 2 and play 3 more of Swiss before we cut down to Top 32. The tension is rising, and everyone is looking forward to crowning a new YCS champion!
Good morning Duelists and welcome to Day 2 of YCS Milan 2018. We had a nice shuttle bus ride from the hotel to the venue. So, even though it's freezing cold outside we stayed warm and cozy. Day 2 will proceed as usual: Duelists with 15 points or higher return for Day 2 to play 3 more Rounds of Swiss. According to our stats tool, that is 451 Duelists that are allowed for Day 2 with most of them still having a shot for Top 32. After that, we will have 5 more Knock-Out Rounds until we will crown our new YCS Milan champion.
Danielle Stella, the winner of YCS Milan 2014 is not here this weekend. But the winner of last year's YCS Rimini, Andreas Vrellos, is still going strong. His current record is X:1, holding 21 points. Will he be able to repeat his top performance? We already had him on stream in Round 1 yesterday, so you might want to go and rewatch the game on YouTube.
In case you dropped out of the Main Event there are still a lot of cool Public Events to attend. There are our new On-Demand Public Events, where you can win points to trade in for prizes at our new prize wall. Other than that, we will be hosting two Mega Regionals today, the Dragon Duel, a 3 vs. 3 Team Tournament and the Traditional Challenge. Overall, there is a huge amount of events you might attend!
