Konami Unleashes Champion Pack 8 on Duelists Everywhere

Champion Pack 8 will be Available at KDE’s Official Tournament Stores from March 20th

EL SEGUNDO, CA. – (February 27, 2009) – Continuing in its efforts to deliver the best gaming experience to the Dueling community and hobby stores, Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. (KDE) today is pleased to announce the launch of the Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME (TCG) Champion Pack 8 from March 20th, 2009. Champion Pack 8 is being provided to hobby stores for Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG prize support, and features tournament-tested cards, previously hard-to-earn promotional cards and a never-before-seen card to round out the set.

“Official KDE tournament stores allow Duelists to perfect their skills, build decks and get Champion Pack 8. The latest Champion Pack includes the new Ultra Rare ‘Gravity Behemoth,’ a 2300 ATK Beast-Type Effect Monster that has the power to destroy Field Spell Cards at will,” commented Yumi Hoashi, Vice President of Card Business for Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. “We have also brought back ‘Prohibition,’ a Super Rare card not seen since it was included in Pharaoh’s Servant in 2002. Champion Pack 8 also includes ‘Magician's Valkyria,’ a card only released in Shonen Jump magazine.”

The four Super Rare foil cards include ‘Lumina, Lightsworn Summoner,’ bringing Lightsworn players one step closer to having an all-foil deck. Duelists can converge on their local hobby stores from March 20th, 2009 to find the only place to get Champion Packs! KDE is also currently developing its own ranking system which will be called COSSY [Konami Card Game Official Tournament Support System] and will launch in April. “We are working on a plan that will link up Konami's COSSY rankings worldwide,” added KDE’s Hoashi.

Hobby stores interested in hosting Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME events or tournaments should contact KDE customer support at 310-220-8630 or us-cardsupport@konami.com.

That's a strange breakdown. 20 card pack? Well, I wish it were a little more than that, like four, but not too bad i geuss. And it is for hobby league tourneys anyway. I just never heard of a 3 card pack before. (I've never gotten a champion pack before)

Don't worry, it's nothing new. All the others CPs were 20-cards sets, with the same breakdown. Each pack had 3 cards too.

Gravity Behemoth

Gravity Behemoth
If there are no cards on the field, this card can be Normal Summoned without Tribute. This effect cannot be used during your first turn. Once per turn, you can destroy 1 face-up Field Spell Card on the field. If you do this, this card cannot attack this turn.

OK card. Loved it in OCG.

Good News

Guess this is the first time KDE also really talks about it's own Ranking System. Wonder if it will also use an easy to use program like Mantis. Since they are creating this who knows they are also going to add more things for the OP such as Official TO, Judge etc. tests.
Overall this is really positive as people can now see that KDE really does something to improve the game for duelists.
