Live Coverage YCS Paris|Live-Coverage der YCS Paris

The YCS comes to Paris!As you will certainly know by now, there's another European YCS heading your way. At least if you're living in Paris; if not, it's time to get going and make your way to the French capital (and before you get lost, be sure to check out my little travel guide)!

We expect plenty of players, 800 or more will most likely make the trip and spend some days (and nights – pun intended) in Paris. To handle all of those people, we'll have a fantastic staff team on site, with more than enough judges to answer your every question. You might have already guessed it (as I'm speaking of “we”): I'll be a member of the staff team as well. Once again, yours truly will be doing coverage together with some amazing people from Konami and last, but certainly not least, my good friend PJ Tierney.

As always, our coverage will feature

  • Quick Questions
  • Deck Features
  • Feature Matches
  • Pictures
  • Statistics (metagame breakdown, etc.)
  • and more!

So there's plenty of stuff in it for you. You can find the coverage at

In case you want to provide us with feedback or care to share your ideas with us, you can reach me via ICQ / AIM (ICQ #44734926), e-mail ( or Twitter (@soul_warrior – you may also follow the feed on the right hand side of this page). It's also possible to get a hold of me while the event is actually taking place (it's most likely I'll reply fast on ICQ, then Twitter and expect me to need some time to realize an e-mail just came in).

One last thing: We're very much interested in crazy deck ideas (preferrably those of the successful kind). If you're playing in the YCS and you're running something we've never seen before, be sure to send us a copy of the list prior to the event (please make sure it's formatted correctly; that means proper English card names) – like NOW! This will raise your chance of getting a deck feature AND make our jobs easier, so it's a win win! You don't have to explain the whole strategy of the deck, but we would like to know what makes your deck so special, so give us a little heads up.

That's it for now. Expect the live features to go up on Saturday at around 11 AM. I hope to see you at the YCS or hear from you during / after the event!

P.S.: Check out the official Konami site for the latest information about the event.

    You have some amazing players. Those Schuurman / Schuurhuis guys and some other duelists are fun to watch (as long as they’re not about to punch walls in tables).

    You have no idea how right you are. In fact, it’s even in the same venue…

    YCS = Yu-Gi-Oh! Championship Series. It’s like a YGO Pro Tour. 800+ attending.
