Yu-Gi-Oh! Asia Championship 2018 Singapore Qualifier

The Yu-Gi-Oh! Asia Championship 2018 Singapore Qualifier was held on 3 June 2018 at Singapore and had a total of 85 participants.

 

Metagame Breakdown

Sky Striker, as expected, was the most popular deck and performed quite well. 7 out of 31 made the Top 16, taking up almost half of the Top 16.

It came as a surprise that Gouki was the second most popular deck. The 10 Gouki decks were made up of 9 Sky Striker Malicious Gouki and 1 mono Gouki. Sky Striker Malicious Gouki performed exceedingly well, with 5 of them making into the Top 16.

Magician was just right behind Gouki in popularity, but was only able to put 2 out of 9 into the Top 16.

The last 2 decks that made the Top 16 were Altergeist and Meta Beat.

3 – 4th Michael Santoso Sky Striker Malicious Gouki
Tan Wan Xin Sky Striker Malicious Gouki
5 – 8th Hou Chong Sky Striker

Sky Striker and Gouki were neck and neck up until the Semi-Final, where we have Sky Striker versus Gouki at both tables. However, both Gouki were defeated, making the Final a mirror match of Sky Striker.

The final match was between Samuel Cheng and Yong Qian Rui. Samuel is an old time player who has recently returned to the game last year, while Qian Rui was the Singapore Summer Qualifier Champion last year and represented Singapore in the Asia Championship 2017.

It was a quick affair as Samuel had the early lead and was able to maintain it till the end. Qian Rui struggled to make any plays in both games.

    how does yong qian rui performed the borrelsword combo without glow-up bulb? or did he decide not to play that?

    • qian rui says:

      Actually u wont used this combo to kill your opponent . You can try 100 games and this situation will only happen less than 3 games.

      The Link 4 is only used to kill RR bird or any monster unaffected by card effect.
