2019 North America WCQ: Wrap-Up!

June 23rd, 2019

What an event!  2101 Duelists entered, and after 12 Rounds of Swiss, an unprecedented play-in match to break a tie for 64th, and 6 Rounds of Single Elimination later, we’ve crowned a new North America WCQ Champion!  Dakota Angeloff from Tuscaloosa, Alabama took it all down and is our newest North America WCQ Champion! We’ve also determined our team representing North America at the 2019 Yu-Gi-Oh! World Championship in Berlin, Germany!  Dakota Angeloff, Raymond Dai, Manav Dawar, and Wei Li won their qualification from the WCQ, while Jesse Kotton and Gabriel Vargas punched their tickets to the World Championship from topping the Worlds Qualifying Points Playoffs on Friday.

We’ve seen some wild Feature Matches on the Livestream (which you can find on our YouTube channel, https://www.youtube.com/user/OfficialYuGiOhTCG) but we’ve also seen some cool things on the coverage blog, including Public Events winners, cosplayers, and people enjoying MEGA DUEL, demos for the upcoming Legacy of the Duelist: Link Evolution video game, and Speed Duel tournaments!

After the World Championship, we will be at the Ultimate Duelist Series Invitational at Indianapolis, Indiana on August 16-18, followed by our next Yu-Gi-Oh! Championship Series the very next week in Portland, Oregon on August 24th and 25th.  Check out the coverage blog for all the action from these tournaments!  Thanks for tuning in!
