Thanks to COVID-19, Yu-Gi-Oh! The World Cup was canceled for the second year in a row. Last year, the players who won seats to the Duel Links World Championship moved to 2021. However, without this year’s chance to compete again with Konami, he decided to create a new tournament instead. KC Grand Tournament is the name of the new event and here is everything you need to know about it.
The big KC tournament will work in a similar way compared to the KC Cup, which takes place several times a year. At the KC Grand Tournament, Duel Links players are undergoing an extensive PvP event. This event will have two parts: a preparatory phase and a main phase. The initial phase will start at the end of May and will have two components. Here is a breakdown of the first stage:
- May 31 – June 14 (1st phase of the preparatory tournament)
- June 11 – June 14 (Preliminary Tournament Qualification)
Players will need to qualify by breaking Max DLv. in the 1st phase. Those who do so will carry out the second part of the preliminary action.
DLv. at the beginning of the 1st stage will depend on your ranking at the end of the Ranked Duels season, which ended on April 30. The rating will look like this:
- Rookie & Bronze: DLv. 1
- Silver: DLv. 3
- Gold: DLv. 6
- Platinum: DLv. 10
- Legend and King of Games: DLv. 12
Duel Links players who take part in this event will compete for prizes and also for a place in the main tournament. The best 128 players from the preliminary qualifiers will qualify for the main tournament. The first stage is expected to take place in July 2021 and the championship will take place in August.
