Konami has announced the school tournament series which I absolutely think is a fantastic idea! Teams playing to represent and be able to help out their school will motivate more people to win the big prize.
Teams will be made of 3 students that attend the same school.
The Yu-Gi-Oh! School Tournament Series are Tier 1 events, conducted as Advanced Format, Constructed Deck, Swiss Round events. The Yu-Gi-Oh! School Tournament Series will play Swiss Rounds, with a Playoff Top Cut, with prizes awarded at the end of the final Round of Swiss, without a Playoff. If eight (8) or less Teams participate in the event, prizes are awarded after the final Round of Swiss.
Duelists will play Single Game Matches, with a team’s Round Results consisting of the combined Match Results for each team member, so if two team members win their Game, then the team wins that Match
Rounds in the Yu-Gi-Oh! School Tournament Series are 20 minutes long.
What is really interesting about this is the twenty-minute single game format. Pray that your decks have the best matchup against the deck you are going against.
