Coverage of the final of the Pro Challenge|Coverage des Finales der Pro Challenge

This past weekend, the final of the Pro Challenge was held. It was a unique tournament in a couple of ways:

  • It was the first time a “normal Tournament Organizer” (not the distributor of the game) was running a series of nationwide qualifiers for an event.
  • Lots of great prizes were given out, comparable to those of a Yu-Gi-Oh! Championship Series!
  • The tournament was making use of the new restricted and limited list, making it the first major tournament to be played in that format.
  • It was an event series that received heavy promotion from – closing the gap between online and offline.

A little more than 110 players showed up, less than expected, but not bad nonetheless. An additional 70 players showed up for the side events alone, a lot more than expected! All in all, we were pleased with the attendance.

I was responsible for the live coverage of the event. I wrote a number of articles, focusing on deck features and opinions on the new format. I think you'll certainly be able to get some ideas on what to play for the Yu-Gi-Oh! Championship Series that will be held in 4 weeks.

Be sure to also check out my Twitter feed. I tagged most posts with the “#EPC” hash-tag. Here's a quick link to a Twitter search for Tweets with that particular hash tag. Meanwhile, all the videos were uploaded on Be sure to check those out as well!

As you can see, there's quite some stuff to discover. The tournament was a great success and we all had a blast. I hope I was able to transfer that into the coverage. Feedback's appreciated!
