Ultimate Duelist Series Leaderboard Points Update – February 6, 2019

February 6th, 2019

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 no longer expire.
  • UDS Points are not transferrable from one Duelist to another.
  • UDS Points are linked to your CARD GAME ID number. It is important for Duelists to use a single CARD GAME ID number while playing at all Konami Sanctioned events.

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!
