(Metagame Archive) Pro Circuit San Francisco News!

Scott Elliott recently posted to the official UDE forums, revealing plans for a Pro Player area at this weekend’s Pro Circuit, as well as important information for money winners at Pro Circuit Atlanta. Check it out:

Hello Players,

Welcome to Organized Play News Announcements. The overall “Organized Play Forums” have existed for some time, but have had only moderate levels of posting, and very few from the OP team to be sure. Simply put, this is an official Upper Deck Entertainment forum. Look for threads started by the OP team. I am personally committed to posting weekly with periodic news updates, and will post more often as you ask more questions. The other fine folks on the OP team will be posting items here and in other forums to be added in the coming days and weeks.

On to the details!

I look forward to seeing many of you later this week at the Fort Mason Center in San Francisco. It’s an exciting site, walking distance to dining, and a short streetcar trip or bus ride from plenty of other fun. You can see the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz from the hall itself–and the scenics inside the hall are coming together nicely, too. There is actually a scene in X-Men–The Last Stand in which you can see the building where we will all play. Hot fun, eh?

I’m sure you have read the player packets–but if not, here are links to the websites from which you can download them. Yu-Gi-Oh! here. Pro Circuit here.

Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG now has a feature match area. It’s past due! Now we can more easily increase the pressure on the top-performing players in the biggest Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG tournaments…that’s what it’s all about, after all. There are other new scenics for Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG as well, but I don’t want to spoil all of them at once–you’ll just have to see for yourself. We have a stellar crew of judges coming in to help us judge the US Nationals–possibly the most talented collection of Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG judges ever to assemble in one building. This gives me high hopes that we will have a smooth-as-whipped-butter tournament.

The Pro Circuit will have a dedicated Pro Players area for this show. This is a feature that PC Players have asked for in the past–and that we are happy to be able to provide at this venue. I can’t say that we will always be able to provide the space for this at every show, but as we had a very cool space in which to create an R&R area we took advantage of this chance. For shows like Gen Con Indy it’s not likely we’ll have a dedicated area, as the show is so much tighter for space than a scenario like this one where we have the entire hall to ourselves. Anyway–we hope you enjoy chillin’ in the loft when you are not crushing heads on the floor of the PC.

If you were a prize winner from Pro Circuit Atlanta 2006, we are bringing your prize check with us to Pro Circuit San Francisco 2006. Checks will be disbursed after you have completed and turned in your PCSF paperwork. If you are not attending PCSF, we will send your check by mail.

Thanks for reading.
