23.09.2018 | 8:20
Day 1 of YCS Utrecht 2018 is in the books! After 9 Rounds of Swiss and 12 hours of intense Dueling we cut the field down for Day 2. Every Duelist with 18 points or higher is permitted to proceed to Day 2 and play 3 more of Swiss before we cut down to Top 64. The tension is rising and we are looking forward to crowning a new YCS champion!
Good morning Duelists and welcome to Day 2 of YCS Utrecht 2018. We are far into YCS Utrecht and Duelists with 18 points or higher return for Day 2 to play 3 more Rounds of Swiss. According to our stats tool, that is 398 Duelists that are back for Day 2. For the first time ever in European YCS history we will cut to Top 64, so I guess that a X:3 record might be enough to make the top cut. For the second time in a row we set a new attendance record for YCS events: almost 2.400 Duelists entered the Main Event yesterday to claim the title of the first champion of YCS 200! We were celebrating the event all through the weekend, all over the world! Columbus and Mexico City started a few hours later than Utrecht, but they also gathered huge attendance numbers. Overall, we had roughly 7.600 Duelists joining the festivities for the 200th YCS. The start of a new season usually means a new YCS Prize Card. This year we will be handing out Chaos Emperor, the Dragon of Armageddon to the winners. Check out this gorgeous card:
At Public Events we will be giving out one of the most popular YCS prize cards of recent history: Minerva. At the Attack of the Giant Card Duelist have the chance to win some of the most popular cards of YCS history like Gold Sarcophagus and even a giant copy of Chaos Emperor, the Dragon of Armageddon.
In case you dropped out of the Main Event there are still a lot of cool Public Events to attend. There are the new On-Demand Public Events, where you can win points to trade in for prizes at our new prize wall. Other than that, there is the usual Attack of the Giant Card, the Mega-Regional and a Mega LLDS! 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 the first 200th YCS Champion!
