Welcome to Yu-Gi-Oh! Championship Series Bochum!

YGO Banner

Good morning everyone around the world following our live coverage of YCS Bochum.

For the third time the YCS circuit is making a stop here at the city’s RuhrCongress venue, again holding over 1000 Duelists. It’s a rainy day outside so the perfect weather for some high class dueling and a lot of fun!

Over 1.100 Duelists are in attendance here today with Registration already closed. At Prague we could witness the rise of a new powerful archetype, Nekroz, which will again be the deck to beat this weekend. The new Forbidden & Limited List came into effect only a few weeks ago, changing the way that Duelists approach their Matches. [wsup] and [pgl2] also introduced new cards to older themes like Blackwings and Sylvans. Today we’ll see what impact all of these changes have!

As always, Europe’s top Duelists and some more from North America are in attendance and many of them will be in the playoffs tomorrow afternoon. We’ll be seeing some of them at the Feature Match table throughout the weekend and it’ll be interesting to see how they tackle this new metagame.

Over the next 2 days we will be providing comprehensive event coverage, with our simultaneous video and written updates. Oliver Gehrmann and Robert Hooley will be your commentary team, and I will be providing written updates. Our focus will be to provide you with a good mixture of Top Decks and top players as well as innovations, techs and players daring to try out something new. Peter Frottier and PJ Tierney will be posting standings, editing content and overviewing the coverage to make sure it’s of the highest quality for you all at home. You can find the relevant links at the top of the sidebar to the right of this blog post.

Everything is set for an exciting event. Let the Duels begin!
