What is the tournament structure?
The tournament is run using the Limited Format and Age-Modified Swiss pairings. See the Pokémon Tournament Rules for information about the Limited Format and Swiss. The number of Swiss rounds to be run will depend on total attendance at the event.
In every local Yu-Gi-Oh community, players get the opportunity to make relationships such friends, rivals, enemies, buyers and sellers, but no matter how hard you try you cannot be everyone’s BEST friend. Players will always have greater friendships with others than you as much as you have greater friendships with others than them. You can determine the friendship when the group of players regularly hang out outside of the Yu-Gi-Oh community whether it be simply getting something to eat or catching a movie together, if a player is a friend to you in locals but you don’t do anything else together outside of it then you’re not friends. This is all stating the obvious but I just want to emphasize the difference between to the two.
In a competitive environment such as a regional, YCS, nationals, etc. It’s best to keep all information about yourself to a minimal. What I mean by this is don’t tell anyone what you’re playing and what your record is. It is a competitive tournament after all and no one is looking out for your best interest. The reason why you don’t want to share information with others is because the information can and will be spread. If your friend from locals comes up to you ask and what you’re playing and you tell them. I’m sure we all have had the “do you know what this guy is playing?” moment, so later on when you get paired up with either them or their “greater friend” they will be a step ahead by knowing the match up which puts you at a slight disadvantage. Everything will be easier if you advertise to everyone that you’re playing a deck your really not so you can have advantage over them and throw them off. An ideal example is telling someone you’re playing Spellbooks, get paired up with them, they win the die roll, thinking you’re playing Spellbooks they make a first turn Naturia Beast and pass then in reality you’re playing a Uria deck and set all traps to ruin their game.
If you have a perfect record by round 3 and someone ask what your record is, it’s better to tell them that you’re x-2 because it will eliminate their thought and worries of you in the tournament so they won’t care to know what deck you’re playing and information will spread less. Of course you can still win the match or event by sharing information about yourself but their is no reason to, especially in a competitive environment where everyone is trying to get ahead of you.
Advertising a wrong deck can also prevent you from being a target of theft. The money decks are usually the meta decks which has the most played, high demanding and valued cards but if you forget your deck box on a table it will be stolen regardless. “Friends from locals” (not all) are the type of players who would find and pick up the deck box and keep for their own personal gain then later give you props, high fives or sympathy for your loss the next day at locals. “Friends from and outside of locals” would pick up the box and say “Hey, this belongs to player X” and return it. So keep in mind and make sure you know who your friends really are, but in the end everyone is your competition and you should always look out for your own best interest.

Hey guys, just finished the video for the two free raffles for the new Yugioh set. I have to learn how to upload them to our website today so expect it up by Wednesday the 22nd at the latest.
So I finally figured out how to properly do it and they will now be updated every Monday.
Remember there is no League this week just our amazing pre-release which you will be sad you missed!!!
In the game of Yu-Gi-Oh players tend to “bling” the cards in the deck they are currently playing which come in the form of 1st edition, foreign, rarity and condition. In most cases, all of the requirements must be met in order to have the highest value version of the card (foreign optional). What usually happens when the card is played in 2 or 3 and the player has only has one copy of the highest rarity, it will be thrown in their deck anyway as they work towards finishing the playset; this can be a good or bad thing. What’s good about it is that the player themselves are playing the card they want to play and showing it off as they place the card onto the table but the downfall to this euphoria is that it gives the opponent unnecessary reads.For example, what I mean by this is if I add an unlimited super rare copy of Ryko, Lightsworn Hunter with Charge of the Light Brigade, decide not to set it yet because I have a better play worth my normal summon after milling 3 then next turn draw a 1st edition super rare copy of Ryko and subconsciously set that. My opponent would know I’m still holding a Ryko in my hand. This is a common mistake made because information that a Ryko added was given and setting one says nothing has changed but when the set one is of different rarity, edition, language or damaged then it only favors the opponent.
A way to prevent this is to be consciously aware of the copy added and copy played, but the easiest and safest way is to have all copies absolutely the same. Some of you may be saying that no one even looks at the edition of the card added with Pot of Duality which is true but after reading this you know that it’s something to look for and look out for, which in turn makes you a better player. My personal recommendation is to have everything the same in cheapest rarity that way it’s easier to ask to borrow during a tournament to replace the higher end copies in your deck, less expensive to play with, and easily replaceable. But that’s just me. If you can get everything in highest form then by all means play with what you got and if you don’t but wish to play with your mismatch of copies then be consciously aware. Sometimes the information doesn’t make a difference at all but that’s no reason to give it away for free.
