This time last year we introduced a new multi-Level tournament series where you could become a local legend. Following the tremendous fan feedback we got last year we’re happy to announce that the Local Legend Duelist Series returns for 2016!
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.
Detailed information and event listings will be made available in the near future, after we have completed the 2016 WCQ: European Championship. Events will take place in August & September.
Changes for 2016:
Much like how invitations for WCQ: Continental Championships work, Stage 2 invites for the 2016 LLDS Season will now “pass down” if a player finishes in a qualification position in more than 1 event.
Players are no longer restricted based on the region they live in. A Stage 2 invitation allows you to compete in the finals in any country.
There will be no LLDS Stage 1 Grand Qualifiers in 2016; all 2016 LLDS Stage 1 events will be of equal importance!
2016 LLDS Game Mats:
As with the 2016 season, Duelists can earn exclusive Game Mats at each Local Legend Duelist Series event. Winners of LLDS Stage 1 Qualifiers will win the following Game Mat, featuring Dark Magician & Dark Magician Girl!
For the Stage 2 Game Mat we are doing something special this year, by giving you a sneak preview at an upcoming theme. More information on this mysterious theme will be revealed at a later date, but for now let’s look at the Game Mat that LLDS Stage 2 winners will take home!
As mentioned above, full information on the 2016 LLDS program will be published in the near future. We wish you the best of luck at these upcoming events!
