Wizards of the Coast Extends Nationals Invitations to Yu-Gi-Oh! Players

March 2, 2009 - Renton, WA - Wizards of the Coast today announced that invitations to the Magic: The Gathering® Nationals tournament will be extended to qualified Yu-Gi-Oh! trading card game players in response to the recent announcement that their National Championships are cancelled.

“We respect the accomplishments of all high-level tournament players,” said Chris Galvin, VP of Organized Play for Wizards of the Coast. “We’d like to do what we can to honor their achievements and keep them gaming.”

Yu-Gi-Oh! trading card game players who hold an invitation to the Yu-Gi-Oh! US or Canadian Nationals that were scheduled to take place this year will be welcomed to come play Magic at the equivalent Magic: The Gathering Nationals in summer 2009. Interested players can simply contact the Wizards Game Support team by visiting customer support or by calling 1-800-324-6496.

As far as i know, any sort of YGO metagame is epic fail (but I may be wrong), so I dunno how that would work out.

However, I do respect that WOTC is extending its hands to a collapsing card game's 'upper levels' of play (and it's good fer marketing).

So...dunno. I guess it's an okay decision however you look at it - would ygo quals be easier than mtg?

Even if they do play poker, it doesn't mean that winning a PTQ would make them qualify for the World Poker Tour.

Thats true. Games last 1 to 2 turns and you dont need to speak a single word because everyone knows the 2 or 3 playable decks and the ~150 played card.
