YCS Las Vegas, NV - And the Winner is…

YCS Las Vegas, NV – And the Winner is…

Over the weekend of Feb 23rd – 24th a group of 1,470 Duelists gathered in Las Vegas, Nevada, forming a total of 490 teams of 3 for this special Yu-Gi-Oh! Team Championship Series event!

Unlike most YCS events, which crown only a single champion, last weekend’s YCS Las Vegas crowned three champions. That raises the stakes threefold.

Successful Duelists will need to work together with their teammates to triumph this weekend. Even before the event began, Duelists on a team worked together to improve each other’s Decks and strategies and discover tech cards that would put them ahead of the competition. They discussed plays in order to ensure that they and their teammates were at the top of their game. The Ultimate Duelist Series Invitational – Winter 2020 in Tulsa, Oklahoma gave us a glimpse last week of the new Advanced Format in a post-Ignition Assault world; but the Advanced Format is still young and there are plenty of tech cards and strategies that were left to be discovered by this weekend’s attending Duelists.

YCS Las Vegas Duelists are permitted to discuss plays and strategies with teammates during their Duels, further extending the importance of teamwork and cooperation. Plus, since a Match victory for a team is defined by a victory for 2 out of 3 Duelists on that team in any given round, a weak link on a team could be fatal to that team’s success.

Team YCS Las Vegas is finished, and we have our winners!

After a total of thirteen rounds, Team YCS Las Vegas has concluded, and we have three new YCS Champions! When the dust settled, Team Gonna Finish That? emerged victorious! This is Stephen Silverman’s second YCS Championship, and the first for teammates Dominic Couch and Scott Page!
