14.01.2017 | 13:38
Yu-Gi-Oh! Championship Series events attract people from all over, and you can find all sorts of people at these events! Ian & Josh Martin are a father and son who’ve made the trip from Orange, New South Wales to come to Australia’s premiere Yu-Gi-Oh! event! While Ian isn’t playing, he’s happy to be here and support his son Josh playing in the main event. We asked them a few questions about Yu-Gi-Oh! and more; here are their answers!
How long have you been playing Yu-Gi-Oh! for, and why did you come to the event?
Josh: I’ve been playing Yu-Gi-Oh! for 12 years, but I only started playing competitively last year. This is my first YCS, but I like Yu-Gi-Oh! so it’s going to be good.
What are your expectations for the event?
Josh: I expect to see a lot of Metalfoes and ABC Decks! It’ll be a fun weekend. I’m not here to win, I’m just here to play Yu-Gi-Oh! and have fun!
What Deck are you playing in the event, and what’s your favourite card in the Deck?
Josh: I’m playing a Darklord Deck today. I love Archlord Kristya! It’s such a powerful card. I’m also an Agent player so it’s nice to use Archlord Kristya in this Deck too.
What Deck do you think will win the main event?
Josh: (laughs) Metalfoes are definitely going to win!
Ian, if you’re not playing in the event, what will you be doing this weekend?
Ian: I’m here to support Josh, but it might end up being a long day. I can always go sightseeing and take a break from the event for a while if that’s the case.
Thanks for talking to us Josh and Ian, and best of luck to Josh in the main event!
