For many of these it'll be hard to get information on winners and Top 8 Decks, but if anybody could help me out (post on the Facebook page) that would be fantastic.




Anyways, the highlight of Week 3 of Nationals Season (there were no events in Week 2) was the French National Championship, held at the same venue as last month's YCS Paris. As always, the French Yu-Gi-Oh! community has provided coverage of their nationals through metagame.be and content is being added to the site as we speak. We'll probably have more concrete info on what happened in the Top 32 tomorrow but for now head on over to the site and read up on some feature matches (in French, so use Google Translate if you have to).

Here's the Top 32:

*Apologies for any incorrect names, Google Translate messes them up.

Details are still coming in as the coverage site gets updated, but from what I heard Alain Ly ended up becoming the eventual champion so congrats to him! You may remember him from his success at the 2009 Irish Open with French twilight, the Deck that teammate Vincent Ralambomiadana took to the US and won an SJC with.

As more info arrives I'll either update this blog post or do another one tomorrow so stay tuned!
