Upperdecks New Tournament System sign now

Today is a sad day for Yugioh players who enjoyed participating in there local Official Tournaments. Today Upperdeck has stooped to greed and money rather then the satisfaction and enjoyment of Yugioh players and fans. Earlier, reported by a member of the Upperdeck Demo team that Upperdeck will be changing their Tournament ranking system. Before the change it has been point based. The higher you place in a tournament, the more points you get, the higher your store ranking, and the higher your national ranking. It seems straight-forward and some what fair. But the new system is far from it.

Upperdeck will soon use a system where your ranking is no longer based on how far you get in a tournament, but rather how many times you duel and how many times your opponents have dueled.

At the moment, you may go to one tournament per week, once this new system is put into place, you can go to as many tournaments you want per week. As you can obviously see, they're doing this on purpose to get the rich people with no life to go to multiple tournaments per week. In most places tournaments are 5 dollars.

UD's mission is complete. They have successfully made the WHOLE ENTIRE GAME based on money rather than skill.

UD will also adapt several new tournament locations since the official tourneys will not require elimination format anymore, they could be Booster Draft, or Swiss Style. Sure that means that a lot of you will get the opportunity to play an official tournament. It also means that UD wants you to waste 5 bucks on them even though you have no chance at ranking higher than the ones who have several tournaments they can go to.

And just to make this painstakingly obvious for all of you, I'll state this again.

The rich people will go to as many tournaments they want per week, even if they suck, they'll have a good ranking JUST because they play lots of duels. That will inspire them to waste even more money on UD tournaments and products. Unofficial tourneys will become official in some areas, they want you to WASTE money on these tournaments eventhough there's no point in competing against the richer people with access to more tournaments.

It's just another way for UD to expand their business and make money.

If anyone cares about this, please consider E-mailing Upperdeck. I Thank you all for reading this and if you sign thank you so much as it is much appreciated, for the only I know of to get Upperdeck to change its ways is to make our voices heard, so power to the people and please do what you can.
I give complete credit of this to Joe Kabuke of IGN who supplied me with this information.

    i think that those greedy people better start playing fair because its not fair to the people that love to play and that have really good skills and they don't even get a high ranking and I'm a huge yugioh FAN!!!!!

    This is low...just low. Even if all the tournaments were free, it'd just be stupid to base your rank on how many duels you have, instead of how many you win and lose.
