Ultimate Duelist Series Leaderboard Points Update – October 17, 2019

October 17th, 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!

A Change to Dragon Duel Tournaments

August 15th, 2019

Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME is excited to share that the age limit for Dragon Duel tournaments will be changing!

Duelists born in 2006 or later (previously 2007) will now be eligible to compete in Dragon Duel tournaments for the 2019-2020 tournament season, starting this weekend August 16-18, 2019 at the Ultimate Duelist Series – 2019 Summer Invitational in Indianapolis, IN.

Dragon Duels are tournaments for children born after a certain year during a tournament season. Judges and staff members at Dragon Duel tournaments are accustomed to working with younger players, and children Duel with other children, rather than with older teens and adults. By increasing the age limit another year, we hope to continue providing a fun and entertaining tournament experience for younger Duelists.

Duelists participating in Dragon Duel events have a chance to win several unique prizes, such as prize cards, medals, game mats and t-shirts, along with invitations to participate in their country’s Dragon Duel World Championship Qualifier. Dragon Duel tournaments are usually run at larger events such as Regional Qualifiers and Yu-Gi-Oh! Championship Series events.

For more information about the upcoming Ultimate Duelist Series – 2019 Summer Invitational this weekend, you can view the FAQs here.
