The Local Legend Duelist Series (LLDS) is a new tournament series aimed at competitive Duelists. Those who prove themselves through the various qualifying events will be invited to an exclusive final where they can win special prizes!
The LLDS takes place across a number of Regions in Europe and Oceania. Each Region will run a 2-stage event program where aspiring Duelists will participate in Qualifying tournaments and earn invitations to a higher tier of events.
To learn more about which Region you are in and how events and prizing in that Region will work, click here!
Your journey to becoming a Local Legend begins with Stage 1 Qualifier events. These are qualifiers that take place in your local store, similar to any other type of event you compete in locally.
The difference between an LLDS Stage 1 Qualifier and a regular Local Tournament however is that the winners will receive this exclusive Game Mat for first place, featuring Old Entity Hastorr!
In addition to the LLDS Stage 1 Game Mat above, a number of Stage 2 Invitations will be awarded to the highest-placed Duelists at each event. These are similar to WCQ: Regional Qualifier invitations but with one key difference, your invitation slot will not pass down to another Duelists if you already qualified at a previous Stage 1 event.
An invited Duelist can compete in as many LLDS Stage 1 Qualifiers as they wish, but can only use 1 invitation to enter a Stage 2 event. In addition, excess invitations cannot be sold, traded or passed on to other players.
To commemorate your accomplishment, every Duelist that qualifies for an LLDS Stage 2 event will receive a high-quality physical invitation letter. These invitation letters are special keepsake items that remind you of your achievements, you do not need to present them when attending an LLDS Stage 2 event.
Some Regions will host LLDS Stage 1 Grand Qualifier events. These are larger events that follow the same format mentioned above, but award additional Game Mats and invitations to the highest-placed Duelists.
Those that have earned invitations through LLDS Stage 1 Qualifier events will compete in LLDS Stage 2 Finals. These are ultra-competitive tournaments where the best Duelists in each Region will face off to win big prizes, including the Yu-Gi-Oh! Championship Series Prize Card, Ascension Sky Dragon!
While the winners of each Region will take home an Ascension Sky Dragon, those that reach the Top Cut Playoffs will also be rewarded with the LLDS Stage 2 Game Mat, featuring Elder Entity Norden! The number of Game Mats awarded may vary depending on the size of the Region you are competing in.

Duelists may compete in any number of qualifying events in their Region.
Duelists may not compete in LLDS events in a Region that they do not reside in.
(Example: Players competing in Germany cannot compete in LLDS events held in Italy and vice-versa)
LLDS Stage 2 Invitations must be earned. Invites do not pass down and cannot be traded or sold.
LLDS Invitation Letters are commemorative items; they are not considered proof of identification at LLDS Stage 2 Final events.
Players may earn multiple invitations but they can only redeem 1 to compete in a Stage 2 Finals event.
Before entering an LLDS event, Duelists may be required to provide proof of residence when requested by organisers.
Duelists must provide a proof of identity (ID card, Passport, Drivers' License etc.) to compete in a Stage 2 Finals event.
All tournaments will be played in Advanced Constructed Format using the most up-to-date Forbidden & Limited List.

Due to the size of the Australian Continent, the LLDS will work differently compared to Europe & New Zealand.
Each Australian State will in effect become its own Region. As with other LLDS events, Duelists can only compete in events held in the Region in which they hold residence.

|South Australia||Store List||Invited Players|
|New South Wales||Store List||Invited Players|
|Victoria||Store List||Invited Players|
|Queensland||Store List||Invited Players|
|Tasmania||Store List||Qualified players take part in the Victoria finals.|
Each Australian Region will host their own Stage 2 Finals tournament, with the exception of Tasmania.
The Top 16 Duelists of each Australian LLDS Stage 1 Qualifier will earn invites to their respective LLDS Stage 2 Finals.
LLDS Stage 2 Game Mats will be awarded to the Top 8 Duelists at each Finals event.
