Q: What happens if I am not done with my Match after the time limit ends?
A: Sometimes a Match will not be finished when the time ends for a round. If this happens, it is both Duelists’ responsibility to note whose turn it is when time is called. Duelists who require assistance with the End of Match procedures should raise their hand and call for a judge. The judge should be notified that the Match is ongoing and whose turn it is. The judge may or may not stay to supervise the End of Match procedure but should ensure that both Duelists understand the following procedures.

End of Match procedures should follow these three (3) rules:

Rule #1: If time is called while Duelists are in the middle of a Game, the current Game must have a decision (Win, Loss, or Draw)
Rule #2: Once the current Game has concluded with a decision, determine the winner of the Match by determining the number of Game Wins (or Game Losses) each Duelist has for the current Match. The Duelist with the most Game Wins will win the Match.
Swiss Rounds: If both Duelists have the same number of Game Wins, or if time was called in between games of a Match when both Duelists had the same number of Game Wins, then the Match is a Draw.
Single-Elimination Rounds: If both Duelists have the same number of Game Wins, or if time is called in between Games of a Match while both Duelists have the same number of Game Wins, they will begin a new Duel with specific guidelines.

      • Neither Duelist may use his or her Side Deck. If time was called in between Games of a Match and at least one Duelist has already accessed his or her Side Deck, then both Duelists may use their Side Deck.
      • Duelists must use a random method (die roll, coin flip, etc.) to determine who will go first.
      • The Duel will continue for a total of four (4) turns, two (2) turns for each Duelist, unless a Duelist manages to win the Duel before the four (4) turns have concluded.
      • Once the four (4) turns are completed, Life Point totals are compared and the Duelist with the highest Life Point total wins the Match.
      • If both Duelists’ Life Points are the same after the four (4) turns are completed, then play will continue on a turn-by-turn basis, with the Duelist with the most Life Points at the end of a turn being declared the winner of that Game.

Rule #3: If a win condition occurs during End of Match Procedures, that Duelist wins the current Game.

Keeping these three (3) rules in mind, please follow these instructions when proceeding to End of Match procedures:

  • Continue with the current Phase of the Game. Once the Phase is over, stop the game.
  • Determine a Game Winner at this point, with the Duelist with the most Life Points winning the Game.
    • During Swiss Rounds, if both Duelists’ Life Points are the same, the Game is a Draw. Compare Game Wins with the Duelist with the most Game Wins winning the Match. If the Game Win totals are the same, the Match is a Draw.
    • During Single-Elimination, if both Duelists’ Life Points are the same at the end of the current Phase (Step 1 above), finish the current turn. If both Duelists’ Life Points are the same at the end of the turn, then play will continue on a turn-by-turn basis, with the Duelist with the most Life Points at the end of a turn being declared the winner of that Game.
  • Match Draws cannot occur during Single-Elimination Rounds.

Q: Will I need to complete and turn in a Deck List?
A: Some events may require a Deck List to be submitted in order to participate. Please review the schedule above for a list of events that require Deck Lists.

For any event requiring a Deck list, you can create your deck list on the Tournament Organizer’s website here;
https://events.thesidedeck.com/Decks/MyDeckLists.aspx

You will need to create an account on the website before you can submit a Deck List or register for any events.

You will be able to save multiple Deck Lists to your account.

When registering for any event requiring a Deck list, there will be a prompt in your registration form to add the name of the Deck List you wish to use for that event.

Once you have registered for an event and submitted the Deck List as part of the registration process, you are no longer allowed to make edits to your Deck List. The Deck List is copied and locked as part of registering for that event. Even if you update your Saved Deck Lists on The Side Deck’s website, it will not alter that Deck List for any event you have already registered for.

Make sure your name and CARD GAME ID are on your Deck List.

Make sure your Deck List exactly matches your Deck.

There is a very helpful article on our strategy site that will help you fill out your Deck List properly.  Just follow the link here:
https://www.konami.com/yugioh/articles/?p=3534

Q: Am I allowed to stream or record any of my Matches?
A: Duelists are not allowed to stream or record any of the Matches during this event.

Q: What are the rules for the Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links Remote Duel Extravaganza Main Event on Saturday?
A: Similar to a normal Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links Remote Duel event, Duelists will use their own devices and connect to others remotely to play in a larger scale Duel Links event. Also, just like the Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG Remote Duel Extravaganza Main Event, Duelists will be earning an invitation to a future Duel Links Remote Duel Invitational Qualifier and ultimately, to try to win a spot at an upcoming Duel Links Remote Duel Invitational event and compete over Livestream!

In order to play you will need to be sure of the following:

  • Duelists will need to have the latest Duel Links app (v.5.9.0) installed on their device
  • Duelists will need to have reached Stage 4 or higher to participate in Tournaments

Duels are conducted the same as in a normal Duel Links Remote Duel event, except the Yu-Gi-Oh! Remote Duel Extravaganza Duel Links Main Event is a Swiss-style event, so you play every round win or lose and may drop from the tournament at any time.

  • Each Round will be played as best of five (5) Duels
  • Each Round will be 45 minutes long

Between each Duel, you may use your Side Deck to alter your Deck for the next Duel.

  • Your Side Deck is every card in your collection
  • Any changes can be made to the Deck between Duels of a Match, including the following:
    • Adding Cards
    • Subtracting Cards
    • Changing Legendary Duelist
    • Changing Character Skill
  • The Deck must be legal for play (appropriate number of cards in the Main and Side Deck, complies with the Forbidden and Limited list available within the Duel Links app).
  • If the Duelist believes there is an error or other issue with their Deck, they should contact a Judge immediately.
  • Failure to do this by the 5-minute mark may result in appropriate penalties.
  • Duelists are not required to revert their Deck back to its original Deck prior to the start of each Match. Players must have a Duel Links legal-for-play Deck prior to each played Game/Match.

In case of a disconnect, win/loss will be determined by the result given in-game.  If the app crashes, or both Duelists disconnect simultaneously and a win is not decided, the Duelists will restart that Duel using the same Decks.  Side-Decking will not be allowed for that specific Duel.

Q: How do I register for the Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links Remote Duel Extravaganza Main Event?
A: Duelists can register for the Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links Remote Duel Extravaganza Main Event on The Side Deck’s website anytime up till 11:00 AM PDT Saturday, August 14th when registration for the Main Event closes. This event will use Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links Remote Duel Format, and there will be a number of Swiss rounds based on attendance with no Top Cut.

Duelists can still register for the Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links Remote Duel Extravaganza Main Event after registration has closed at 11:00 AM PDT on August 14th, but those Duelists will be registered with at least a Round 1 Match Loss as a late entry.

Duelists will need to have the latest Duel Links app (v.5.9.0)installed on their device and reached Stage 4 or higher to participate in Tournaments.

Q: What are the prizes and Round Format for the Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links Remote Duel Extravaganza Main Event?
A: The number of Duelists who register for the event will determine how many rounds are played and how many Duelists win prizes and the invitations to the Duel Links Remote Duel Invitational Qualifier!

Q: What are the Prizes and Round Format for the Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG Remote Duel Extravaganza Main Event?

Q: What Tournament Policy information do I need to know for a Remote Duel Event?

A: Duelists are responsible to know the information contained in KDE-US Official Tournament Policy documents, which can be found here:  https://www.yugioh-card.com/en/events/organizedplay.html
Until we have a Remote Duel Policy addendum, we will use the following Infractions/Penalties for common issues in Remote Duels.


Infraction

Penalty

Disconnection

If a Duelist gets disconnected from the video channel during a Duel, they will receive a Game Loss. This is a Procedural Error – Major infraction.

Frozen Video

If a Duelist’s video feed becomes disrupted or frozen during a Duel, they will receive a Game Loss. This is a Procedural Error – Major infraction. This is not the same as a temporary lag, please use the Pause/Play card or some other method to indicate lag.

Streaming during a Match (for events prohibiting streaming)

If a Duelist streams or otherwise broadcasts an ongoing Match at an event that has prohibited streaming, they will receive a Warning. This is an Unsporting Conduct-Minor infraction and can be upgraded if the Duelist repeats the infraction. Duelists should verify ahead of time whether streaming is allowed.

Revealing Private Knowledge

A: Remote Duel Invitationals are special events in which Duelists are invited to take part in a livestreamed tournament for the entire Dueling world to see! In previous Invitationals, we watched World Championship competitors, YCS Champions and Content Creators battle it out – now it could be your turn.

Duelists who rank high enough in the Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG Remote Duel Extravaganza Main Event (on Sunday) will be one step closer to participating in the next Remote Duel Invitational in 2021.

There will be more information to come on how to clinch one of the 16 spots in the next Remote Duel Invitational, so stay tuned!

Q: What are the Rules for Duel Links Remote Duel Tournaments?
A: This event allows you to bring your device and connect to others remotely for a Duel Links format, Single-Elimination event. Test your Deck builds in a Duel using the latest Duel Links Forbidden and Limited restrictions to compete for Duel Links Prize Pins (while supplies last)!

  • Rounds will be played best of five (5) Duels.
  • Rounds will be 45 minutes long.

Between each Duel, you may use your Side Deck to alter your Deck for the next Duel.

  • Your Side Deck is every card in your collection.
  • Any changes can be made to the Deck between Duels of a Match, including the following:
    • Adding Cards
    • Subtracting Cards
    • Changing Legendary Duelist
    • Changing Character Skill
  • The Deck must be legal for play (appropriate number of cards in the Main and Side Deck, complies with the Forbidden and Limited list available within the Duel Links app)
  • If the Duelist believes there is an error or other issue with their Deck, they should contact a Judge immediately.
  • Failure to do this by the 5-minute mark may result in appropriate penalties.
  • Duelists are not required to revert their Deck back to its original Deck prior to the start of each Match. Players must have a Duel Links legal-for-play Deck prior to each played Game/Match.

In case of a disconnect, win/loss will be determined by the result given in-game.  If the app crashes, or both Duelists disconnect simultaneously and a win is not decided, the Duelists will restart that Duel using the same Decks.  Side Decking will not be allowed for that specific Duel.

Instructions on how the competitors can connect to the in-game Tournament Room will be provided once you are seated for the events.

Duelists will need to have the latest Duel Links app (v.5.9.0)installed on their device and reached Stage 4 or higher to participate in Tournaments.
