Welcome to YCS Paris 2014!

Hello and a very warm welcome to all of our readers of the Yu-Gi-Oh! Championship Series Paris 2014!

Last time the YCS came to Paris, we kicked off 2011’s event season and we did so with quite the bang. 852 Duelists showed up, with most of them packing the back then popular archetypes Six Samurai, X-Sabers as well as the Gravekeepers…

[p]It will be quite a different story this weekend with the Mermails, Fire Fist and Geargia archetypes bound to make an impact once again. In case you haven’t been following up on the latest developments, this might come as a minor surprise; after all, a new list of forbidden and limited cards came into effect at the beginning of the month. The changes it brought were cosmetic, however, attempting to balance the field rather than turning the whole game upside down. As always, there’s still lots of room for innovation and plenty of Duelists took advantage of the chance to send in their creative deck ideas prior to the start of the YCS (read all about it in this article), so stay tuned for some of the Deck Features we’ll publish later where we’ll highlight some of the most inspiring approaches.[/p]

[p]Paris has a proven track record of attracting a lot of visitors which is not too surprising considering the many sights the capital of La Grande Nation features. It’s best to schedule an entire week if you’re serious about checking out the city; from what I gathered, you will easily lose a full day in the Louvre alone. Add the Arc de Triomphe, connected to the Place de la Concorde by the Champs-Élysées (which is a sight in itself), the Opéra Bastille, the Parc des Princes, the Basilique du Sacré-Cœur in the beautiful district of Montmarte and the list goes on and on…[/p]

[p]The action will be underway shortly and as always, we’ll provide you with live impressions from the venue, we’ll break down the popular decks for you, we’ll ask some Quick Questions and maybe we’ll also do a few Duelist Profiles. So make sure to check back regularly since in just a few minutes, it’s Time to Duel![/p]
