Q: How do I receive prizing for events held at the Yu-Gi-Oh! Remote Duel Invitational Qualifier?
A: All prizing will be shipped out to each Duelist who has earned prizing, starting approximately three (3) weeks after the event has concluded. This also applies to participation prizing.

Duelists who are local to the Tournament Organizer hosting the event they participate in, may be able to coordinate curbside pickup of their prizing by contacting the Tournament Organizer. Prizing will not be available for curbside pickup until approximately three (3) weeks after the event has concluded. Please contact the TO of your Yu-Gi-Oh! Remote Duel Invitational Qualifier to inquire about curbside pickup of any prizing after your event concludes.

Duelists who finish high enough to earn an invite to a Yu-Gi-Oh! Remote Duel Invitational will be required to complete a consent form in order to be eligible to participate in that event. In addition, invited Duelists are required to be physically in a Latin America country during a Yu-Gi-Oh! Remote Duel Invitational weekend. KDE-US will coordinate with each invited Duelist to ensure they have the appropriate equipment needed for the Livestream production of the event.

Q: What is the Round Format for the Yu-Gi-Oh! Remote Duel Invitational Qualifier?
A: All Yu-Gi-Oh! Remote Duel Invitational Qualifiers are Tier 2 events. The TCG events are conducted as Remote Duel, Advanced Format, Constructed Deck, Swiss round events. The Duel Links events are conducted as Remote Duel, Duel Links Format, Swiss round events. The Yu-Gi-Oh! Remote Duel Invitational Qualifiers will play Swiss Rounds, with a Playoff Top Cut (if applicable), with prizes awarded at the end of the final round played. If sixteen (16) or fewer Duelists participate in the event, prizes are awarded after the final Round of Swiss. The format details provided here supersede any tournament details found in other official KDE-US policy documents.

*The Number of Participants is based on how many total participants are enrolled in the tournament once Registration closes. All Duelists added to the event after registration closes should not affect the number of Swiss Rounds. Playoff Top Cut is based on the total number of participants, including late entries.

Examples

After registration closes, 63 Duelists have registered for the tournament. This means that the tournament will have 6 Rounds of Swiss, followed by a Top 8 Playoff cut. Two Duelists register late, beginning the tournament with a Round 1 Match Loss. Even though this brings the attendance total to 65, only 6 Rounds of Swiss are played.

After registration closes, 15 Duelists have registered for the tournament. This means that the tournament will have 4 Rounds of Swiss, followed by no Playoff Top Cut. Two Duelists register late, beginning the tournament with a Round 1 Match Loss. Even though this brings the attendance total to 17, the number of Swiss Rounds would not change, but the Playoff Top Cut would change from none to Top 8.

Q: What are the rules for the Yu-Gi-Oh! DUEL LINKS Remote Duel Invitational Qualifier?
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 Invitational Qualifier, Duelists will be earning an invitation to a future Duel Links Remote Duel Invitational 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.5.10.0) 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.

A: Yes, all participating Duelists will be required to submit a Deck List when registering for the Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG Remote Duel Invitational Qualifier.

Q: Will I need to complete and turn in a Deck List for the Duel Links Remote Duel Invitational Qualifier?

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.

Dropping a card

If a Duelist drops a card off the table during their Match, they should keep both hands in view of the camera and immediately call for a Judge without touching the dropped card. If the Judge is able to clearly identify the dropped card, the Duelist will receive a Warning for a Procedural Error – Minor infraction, which can be upgraded if the Duelist repeats the infraction. If the Judge is not able to clearly identify the card, the Duelist will receive a Game Loss for a Procedural Error – Major infraction.

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.

Q: What are the Remote Duel Invitationals?
A: Remote Duel Invitationals are special events in which Duelists are invited to take part in a tournament for the entire Dueling world to see via Livestream!

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

Q: Who should I contact if I have questions about the Yu-Gi-Oh! Remote Duel Invitational Qualifier?

Card Legality

Q: What cards are legal for play?
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
Please consult with the Head Judge for the event if you have questions about the legality of cards in your Deck.

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.
  • 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.

Q: I want to judge at the Remote Duel Invitational Qualifier instead of competing as a player – how can I participate?
