Q: What is a Swiss Round Tournament?

A: Players are paired off based on each player’s win/loss record. Players are not eliminated when they lose a match during Swiss tournaments – instead, they will continue to be paired against players with similar records for all remaining rounds of the event.

Q: What is a Single-Elimination Tournament?

A: Half of the tournament is eliminated after each round – the losing player is out of the tournament, while the winner goes on to the next round. This continues until only one player remains, which is then declared the winner.

Q: What is Speed Duel?

A: Speed Duel is a fast-paced way to play the physical card game. Following on the success of the Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links Mobile app, Speed Duel allows players to bring that style of play to the table. Whether you are new to the game or a long-time fan, players will be able to enjoy this version of Yu-Gi-Oh! Speed Duel using fewer cards and a smaller playing field to enjoy quick matches that are focused on characters from the show and uses Skill Cards to represent those Character’s effects on their matches. Whether you are a fan of the show, the mobile app, or the physical card game, Speed Duel can be enjoyed by experienced players and those new to the hobby!

  • 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.

    • 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)

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!

  • 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.

This is an editable PDF, so you will be able to type the card names in this form, which should help as your Deck List needs to be legible and complete – write the name of each card in full, and write down how many copies you have in your Deck and submit a PDF to the event staff of your finalized Deck List.

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

Make sure your Deck List exactly matches your Deck.

Duelists are encouraged to complete their Deck List before the day of the event by using the downloadable KDE-US Deck List and typing out all of the necessary information in the editable fields on the form.

Q: Are there any special rules I need to know for the Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG Remote Duel Extravaganza Main Event?

A: You can only participate in the Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG Remote Duel Extravaganza Main Event of the country where you reside, if one is being held in your country.  If your country is not hosting a Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG Remote Duel Extravaganza Main Event, you are welcome to participate in any of the Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG Remote Duel Extravaganza Main Event tournaments held in other countries within your Region (Central or South America), as long as the OTS is willing to ship participation and tournament prizing to that county, and that you are aware that getting your prizing can take longer than expected and might be subject to customs fees. Make sure to check with the OTS prior to registering.

A: Please check the “Products” page online at https://www.yugioh-card.com/en/products/index.html for the most current legality dates of Yu-Gi-Oh! product releases, prior to preparing your Deck for the event.

Q: Is there a Forbidden List specific to Remote Duel?

A: Certain types of card effects involving Private Knowledge cannot be successfully resolved in Remote Duel, and are considered to be Forbidden in Remote Duel only.
Cards Forbidden in Remote Duel are not Forbidden for in-person play, therefore they are not displayed on the Advanced or Traditional Format Forbidden & Limited List

Q: Can I use OCG cards (cards printed for use in Japan and other Asian territories) in my Deck?

A: No, cards printed for Asian markets are not legal for play in TCG tournaments, even if you have a translation available.

Q: Can I use foreign language cards in my Deck?

A: You may use foreign-language copies of legal-for-play cards printed for the TCG market, as long as you can show an official translation of the card when asked to do so by an opponent or tournament official. 

If you are using a card that is not in a local language, you must do one of the following:

  • Have a local-language version of the card, stored outside of your Deck or Card Case, available to show opponents or tournament officials. For English or Spanish language cards, you are not required to have an official translation (with the exception of Brazil and Trinidad & Tobago, Spanish cards will need English translation).  Portuguese cards do not require a translation for the Brazilian event(s).
  • Have an accurate, written version of the most recent card text, stored outside of your Card Case, available to show opponents or tournament officials.
  • Use the “Camera Search” function in Neuron to provide an accurate translation of the card.

 


Miscellaneous

Q: Is there any guidelines that I should follow for the Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG Remote Duel Extravaganza?

A: When Remote Dueling, the following practices will help maintain fair and friendly competition between you and your opponent.

  • Communicate with your opponent. Whatever is happening, let your opponent know! If you are unsure about something your opponent has said or done, ask!
  • Call for a judge if you have any concerns about gameplay, or technical difficulties during the Match.
  • Announce your Phases. “Draw Phase!” “Standby Phase!” “Main Phase!” “Battle Phase!” “Main Phase 2”, and “End Phase!”
  • Announce your actions. For example: “Normal Summoning Sangan”; “Special Summon Cyber Dragon”; “Activate Mermail Abyssmegalo effect in hand“; “Link Summon Cross Sheep”; “In response I’ll activate Ash Blossom & Joyous Spring’s Quick Effect”; “Activate Pot of Desire”; “Set one card” etc.
  • Allow your opponent the chance to respond.
  • Confirm to your opponent when their action is okay to resolve.
  • Allow time for any lag or frozen video to catch up.  Utilize the Pause/Play card included in your Duelist Gift to indicate lag.
  • Speak clearly and repeat yourself if needed, if your opponent doesn’t hear or understand you. Ask your opponent to clarify if you cannot hear or understand them.
  • Make sure your hands are always visible.
  • Make sure your opponent can see how many cards you have in your hand, without revealing what is in your hand. Holding your cards angled towards you helps with this.
  • If you or your opponent’s video is disconnected, freeze play until the video is returned to normal working order and call a Judge immediately.

Before your Match begins:
You and your opponent must each indicate the left edge of your field.

From there, indicate each Duelist’s “Field Spell Zone” Column to determine the columns from left to
right. Ensure both you and your opponent know which column is which, prior to the start of the Match.

Make sure all the following areas are visible:

  • All Monster Zones (including Extra Monster Zones)
  • All Spell/Trap Zones (including Field Spell Zone)
  • Your Deck
  • Your Graveyard
  • Your Extra Deck
  • Your Side Deck (placed to the side of an Extra Monster Zone is fine)

Cutting the Deck:
When cutting a Deck: Ask your opponent how many cards they would like to cut to, counting from the top of the Deck. Then, without changing the order of the cards, count to that number and cut the Deck. Opponents may opt instead to allow the owner of the Deck to choose where to make the cut. When doing so, try to cut the Deck about 50% of the way down to ensure a proper cut.

Changing Control of a Card:
Keep blank notecards nearby in case control of a card shifts to the opposite field.

If you would take control of one of your opponent’s cards, use a notecard as a placeholder for that card while it is in your control. Write the name of the card on the notecard.

If you would give your opponent control of one of your own cards, turn the card upside down and have it half visible on the top half of your field in the designated column to help indicate where the card is.

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

If a Duelist inadvertently reveals the contents of their Hand, etc. they will receive a Warning.  This is a Procedural Error – Minor infraction and can be upgraded if the Duelist repeats the infraction.

Having items or clothing with offensive images or language on camera

If a Duelist is using tournament materials, wearing clothing, or displaying items within view of the camera with offensive language or images, they will receive a Warning and be required to remove the items in question. This is an Unsporting Conduct – Minor infraction and can be upgraded if the Duelist repeats the infraction. Tardiness or Slow Play penalties may also apply if the correction is not made in a timely manner.

Using a play area that is cluttered or unclear

If a Duelist is playing with a field that is poorly lit, lacking contrast between sleeves and mat, is cluttered with items not required for the current Match, etc. they will receive a Warning and be required to correct the issues. This is a Procedural Error – Minor infraction and can be upgraded if the Duelist does not correct the issues or repeats the infraction. Tardiness or Slow Play penalties may also apply if the correction is not made in a timely manner.

Not being appropriately dressed

If a Duelist is not appropriately dressed (shirts and pants, shorts, or skirts must be worn) they will receive a Warning and be required to correct the situation. This is an Unsporting Conduct – Minor infraction and can be upgraded if the Duelist repeats the infraction. Tardiness or Slow Play penalties may also apply if the correction is not made in a timely manner.

Not keeping hands in view/performing actions off camera

If a Duelist does not keep their hands holding cards or other game-related actions in view of the camera and their action is unintentional, they will receive a Warning. This is a Procedural Error – Minor infraction and can be upgraded if the Duelist repeats the infraction.

Outside interference in a Match

If a Duelist receives outside interference in their Match, they will receive an Unsporting Conduct infraction. The severity of the infraction will determine the appropriate penalty, which could range from a Warning to a Disqualification.

Including cards Forbidden in Remote Duel in the Deck

If the error is caught prior to the start of the event, the Duelist receives a Warning for a Deck Error – Minor infraction and must remove the Forbidden card(s). If removing the Forbidden cards results in an illegal Deck (less than 40 cards), then the Duelist must move cards from their Side Deck to the Main Deck to total 40 cards.

If the error is caught after the event has started, the Duelist receives a Game Loss for a Deck Error – Major infraction and must remove the Forbidden card(s). If removing the Forbidden cards results in an illegal Deck (less than 40 cards), then the Duelist must move cards from their Side Deck to the Main Deck to total 40 cards.
