Out and About at YCS Pittsburgh

May 14th, 2017

We’re in the final Swiss round right now – the atmosphere is tense as Duelists battle to make the Top 32 cut! Duelists who’ve already dropped from the Main Event are trying their luck in Public Events. Let’s see how things are going on the floor.

Here we have our remaining Main Event Duelists. There’s still quite a few remaining – all are doing their best for a shot at the top cut.

Over here is our VIP area. Duelists that perform well in VIP Qualifiers, as well as UDS Champions, get special seating over here. There are only a few VIPs remaining, but they’re still enjoying the benefits of their personal tables. Also shown is Joe Frankino, coverage writer and beloved judge, writing our Round 10 Feature Match between Kamahl Crooks and Justin Singh.

In Public Events, we’ve got ATTACK OF THE GIANT CARD!! already underway! The giant Ash Blossom & Joyous Spring was claimed yesterday by George Machado, so these Duelists are facing off for the giant Master Peace, the True Dracoslaying King.




3 vs. 3 Team Dueling is underway over here. Duelists team up in 3s, and each face an opponent. The team that wins the most combined with each of its members wins the whole Match! They’re playing for some framed, uncut sheets of Secret Rares from Maximum Crisis.
