UDS Points are awarded based on participation and/or final standings and judging in Ultimate Duelist Series Qualifiers, and at most Tier 2 events such as Regionals, Dragon Duels, Yu-Gi-Oh! Championship Series, and World Championship Qualifiers.

UDS Points are linked to your COSSY ID number. You must make sure that your COSSY ID has been properly registered (http://www.yugioh-card.com/en/events/cossy.html) in order to be eligible to participate in an Ultimate Duelist Series Qualifier.
