Ultimate Duelist Series Leaderboard Points Update – 2/24/2017

February 24th, 2017

Are you the Ultimate Duelist?  It’s time to find out!

In order to enter an Ultimate Duelist Series Invitational, a Duelist must have earned a minimum of 100 UDS Points.

Ultimate Duelist Series Points:

  • UDS Points are awarded based on participation and final standings in UDS Qualifers and at most Tier 2 events, such as standard Regionals, Dragon Duels, and YCS. UDS Points are also awarded for judging at Tier 2 events and UDS Qualifiers.
  • UDS Points remain valid for 2 years, in order to give Duelists a fair chance to attend the Invitational nearest to their area.
  • UDS Points are not transferrable from one Duelist to another.
  • UDS Points are linked to your COSSY ID number. You must register your COSSY ID at in order to accumulate UDS Points.

We’ll be updating the leaderboard posting it right here on the coverage site on the days leading up to the UDS Invitational, so be sure to check back often to see how you’re doing!

We’re here in Round 3 with our Ultimate Duelist, Aaron Furman, from New Jersey. He won the UDS Invitational in Chicago using Metalfoes, and he’s still playing the newest version of the Deck. As the Ultimate Duelist, he gets the VIP treatment at YCS events, including two free byes at the start of the tournament. That’s over now, though; he’ll have to start earning his stay in the tournament. For this round, he’s up against Adam Pham, from nearby Moreno Valley, in a Metalfoes Mirror Match!

The Champs Are Here!

October 15th, 2016

Ryan Murakami claimed his victory at the UDS Summer Invitational – Los Angeles, while Aaron Furman bested the field at the UDS Summer Invitational – Chicago. Now, both Duelists have earned the title of UDS Champion as well as their own title belts. While the belt is one of the coolest prizes we have to offer, the biggest perk of winning an Ultimate Duelist Series Invitational is a little less tangible. Both Ryan Murakami and Aaron Furman are able to enter any Yu-Gi-Oh! Championship Series Main Event for FREE with Byes for their first two rounds, much like you would be allowed to do if you won a YCS VIP Qualifier.

Round 5 Featuer Match: Hughe Blaske versus Philip Zuniga

February 21st, 2016

Philip Zuniga is one of the many Kozmo Duelists here this weekend. Zuniga is trying to show that he has mastered the strategy and rise to the top of the Kozmo crowd, but an unexpected opponent has stepped in his way. Hughe Blaske is 3-1 right now, with probably the most surprising strategy we have seen thus far this tournament: Geargia. Utilizing Geargiano MK-III alongside 22 Traps, Blaske has had a decent start in this weekend and is trying his best to make it to Day Two.

Can Blaske show continued success with his unique strategy? Or will Zuniga take him down?

Blaske won the roll and chose to go first.
