So i started this kc cup really bad, i went back and forth from 0k to 20k the entire day 1 (i tried every meta decks: ag, six, amazones, controll) , i still was 0 k a the end of the day so decided to try stall too and went to 25k/30k with it (1st place global was already 70k), day 2 i just kept playing and reached 70k and then day 3 i went to 100k then i decided to wait last hour to try to reach 2nd place (i was hoping that 1st place global cheated and got banned) then i went to 2nd place last hour but also discovered that 1st place was legit. Rip the dream.

My kccup experience was quite nice and i didnt have any Hard loosing Sprees about the whole Weekend. I think my hardest drop was around 8k or 10k points, but i had a lot of Phases in which i simply win/lose 1 game for hours. I got at 50k day 1, Followed by 80k on saturday and finally ended on 100k at sunday night 20 Minutes before the end.
It was a grind fest with six sams but i really enjoyed playing them and didnt have a Single Prisma diamond core to try out kcbling koakis.
Also big shout outs to CwC, my german friends and also every other person Who believed in me to get top10 this time.
I had the same idea as grucius and wanted to get at 105k, but dropped Down to 95k instead one hour before the end and had to fight it back, and After reaching 100k i simply stopped and didnt want to Fool myself.
Global Rank: 9

First of all, full credits to Eugen Heidt and Zaid, Symbol of Peace. They’re amazing and motivated me to play the event and I got both decklists I used from them (Koaki from zaid, Six Sam from Eugen). I used Koaki from 0-46k and Six Sam from 46k-71k. Sadly only had 1 glossy Diamond so I wasn’t able to use the deck at full power. I also wanted to play 3 Sazanks but 2 of mine were glossy so I only put it one.

I played Koaki for around 90% of my games and sealed tombs for the majority of my climb. I did switch to KC Bling when I felt sams were not the majority of my opponent’s and I kept the list relatively the same. I chose Koaki because I believe it is the second best deck in the meta right now despite having almost no presence in tournaments or on ladder. I ran a minimum of 4 anti sam monsters at all times; I sometimes swapped in a second cipher soldier when sams were the majority of my opponents. Day 2 was when I got closest to first place global reaching 83729 DP between updates back when that was roughly where first place had been the prior update, but unfortunately I wasn’t paying enough attention to my food intake which resulted in a headache, a stomachache, tilting, and an unfortunate withdrawal from the race to worlds as I needed to sleep and the point deficit was too large to bridge when I woke up. Shout outs to Stevie, Serenity, Smug, Sauce God, and Wayne for all being in a call with me day 2, and shout outs to Snyffus, Zaid, and CrimsonLTCR for being good people to talk to when laddering. Thank you to everyone who supported me or cheered for me I greatly appreciate it!

Meta decks owned: Koaki and Amazoness
Day 1: Played around with st koaki and amazoness staying at around 20k
Day 2: Barely played 10 games so stayed at around 15k
Day 3: Didn’t play until last 4 hours when i went from 15k to 62k with this deck, never changed anything. 1 sazank cos i only own 1, 1 cipher cos rest of them are glossy, blinging for 2 glossy diamond cores, ebolas cos i kept facing six sams, no backrow protection cos shi en negating/dual wield end turn, makes double cyclone useless in AG’s. I could’ve done much better if i played more with it cos i was clapping amazoness and AG’s consistently and doing very good vs six sams, only lost 4 games during that climb… Played total of 225 games with 63% win rate. I feel the biggest problem is points system cos it sucks…
Global Rank: 62
Day 1 and 2 I started horribly didnt get over 20k. Day 3 I started to make a big push ending on 61.5k. Thanks to 1% and TIP for having faith in me. Also CANCER IS THE ANSWER as usual.

I played all kinds of things in beginning and sucked. Then played mostly the stall deck til about 35k ish. The stall deck just completely shut down Six Sams, they were so free.
Then I couldn’t do shit from there. So my teammate, Fetty Guap was clapping with AGs, so I got his list and started playing that. Took it all the way to 60k.
