Hello and welcome to YCS Ghent 2019! After having Worlds in Berlin about a month ago, the “Race for Worlds” has started yet again. Duelists acquire points to earn an invite to the World Championship 2020. Last season we had a close race between Tom Rose and Jake Quinsee. The Playoff was the big highlight of the season ending up three Duelists earning a spot at Worlds. The other three Duelists qualified via the Main Event making Team Europe complete.
The World Championship was a great show and it was finally taking place in Europe again. We provided you with a great live show and hope you enjoyed it as much as we did. But now, let’s return to the present and YCS Ghent! It’s the first time the YCS series stops at this beautiful city. In case you didn’t find time to see the city I would really like to recommend you to go and see the city center. It feels like a trip to the past.
We have 1.776 Duelists in competition today making it one of the biggest events in Yu-Gi-Oh! history. It's great to see that so many people made the trp to Ghent! We will be playing 9 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 number of Public Events throughout the weekend. Feature Matches will be on our live stream on Twitch and YouTube. On written coverage, we will be focusing on Quick Questions, Interviews and Pubic Events. Of course, this content will be accompanied by Strategy Content in order to provide you at home with all the ideas and innovation players came up with. Stay tuned for all the action at YCS Ghent 2019.
