The Yu-Gi-Oh! World Championship 2011|Die Yu-Gi-Oh! Weltmeisterschaft 2011


Yu-Gi-Oh! World Championship 2011The past weekend, I was busy doing coverage for the Yu-Gi-Oh! World Championship 2011. It was the second time I've been at Worlds (after I head judged the 2008 World Championship) and it has been a very rewarding experience again! (I'd also like to point out that both times I've been there, a Japanese player won – if that ain't reason enough for the Konami headquarters to fly me in for all future World Championships, I don't know what is!)

Given the special nature of the event, we couldn't generate some of the most sought-after content (e.g. Feature Matches) – we didn't want to put even more pressure on a player who was already fighting on the world's highest stage by exposing all of his plays to a huge audience. This led to some negative feedback as expected, but I think that PJ and I were still able to provide you with a great live impression of what was going on on site, even with the restrictions in place.

I really had a blast in Amsterdam and am very happy to have been part of this special tournament! Granted, there were a few disappointments (lack of cocktail bars in Amsterdam), but all things considered, I wouldn't have wanted to miss out on the event.

World Championship 2011 Playmat showing Utopia!Speaking of memorablia, I was lucky enough to get my hands on one of the exclusive Utopia playmats that have been given out this weekend. It's the exclusive Yu-Gi-Oh! World Championship 2011 Playmat and it's already changed hands on eBay for more than 400,- €. I considered keeping it, but I honestly can't pass such an opportunity and put my playmat up for auction. Go check it out and send me a price suggestion, here's the link one more time: Worlds Playmat.

If you've been to Amsterdam and / or enjoyed following up on the coverage, leave a comment below and let me know what you thought about the event / the coverage!

    Weltmeisterschaft – ist halt immer einmalig. Ganz anders als Berlin, weil Coverage eben auch relativ anders als Judgen ist, anstrengend, aber am Ende des Wochenendes war man sehr froh, dass man dabei gewesen ist. 🙂
