About Ultimate Duelist Series

The Ultimate Duelist Series Invitational is a free tournament open only to qualified Duelists who have earned a minimum requirement of UDS Points (100 UDS Points). They are exciting 2-day events that take place from Saturday to Sunday.  Duelists from all over will attend these events to compete for exclusive prizes, and spend the weekend Dueling, trading, and hanging out with hundreds of other Yu-Gi-Oh! fans.

If you did not manage to earn enough UDS Points to qualify for the Invitational, there will still be a lot to do at the event!  We will be running a full schedule of Public Events, including  ATTACK OF THE GIANT CARD!! , Regional Qualifiers, UDS Qualifiers, Dragon Duels, and Battle City tournaments – so make plans to attend and take full advantage of these Organized Play offerings!

The Invitational portion is not an open-to-all event.  Only Duelists who have earned at least 100 UDS Points may enter the Ultimate Duelist Series Invitational – Summer 2015 and they do so by redeeming the points at Registration.

Decklists for the main event are required at the time of registration.  Decklists will be available to fill-out at the event, or can be downloaded and filled-out at home from here: http://www.yugioh-card.com/en/events/forms/KDE_DeckList.pdf

What are UDS Points?

You will need a minimum of 100 UDS Points in order to enter the UDS Invitational.  To see how many UDS Points you currently have, check here: http://www.yugioh-card.com/en/ultimateduelist/udsrankings.html

UDS Points are the qualifying units you must earn in order to participate in an Ultimate Duelist Series Invitational.
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 Invitational. If you have never registered your COSSY ID, you must register your COSSY ID no later than four (4) business days prior to the UDS Invitational.
