Welcome to Day 2 of YCS Rimini!
Day 1 of YCS Rimini is in the books. Yesterday 1,099 Duelists were in competition trying to get to Day 2. They had to grind through 8 Rounds of Swiss and about 12 hours overall. The Top 320 players have returned to play 3 more Rounds of Swiss before we cut to Top 32. The tension is high and will get even higher as the tournament proceeds. Stay tuned for all the action here in Rimini!
Good morning and welcome back to Rimini for the second day of main event action. There are still 320 Duelists remaining having a chance to make the top cut. All players with a X:3 record or better were allowed to proceed to Day 2. There are three more Rounds of Swiss before we will cut down the field to Top 32 and proceed with the knock-out Rounds. Any mistake may result in the elimination of the tournament. The Tension among players is high! They have to stay focused. At the end of the day we will have the first YCS Champion of the new season. Stay tuned to find out who will make it.
Deck wise there are still a lot of different strategies in competition. Nekroz took up about a quarter of the whole field and still seems be the deck to beat. Shaddolls are still a force and seemed to have caught up a bit. Since we are in Italy there are also a lot of Burning Abyss decks – they just seem to love the deck.
In case you dropped out of the Main Event there are still a lot of cool Public Events to attend. There are the usual Win-a-mat events, Attack of the Giant Card and the Synchron Extreme Structure Deck release event!
As always, we will be bringing you the latest updates and live coverage throughout the day, be sure to follow the links below and join us as we find a new Champion!
