Announced on May 10th, an official Yu-Gi-Oh! World Championship 2017 will be held in London from Aug 11 to Aug 12, which was later changed to Japan instead of London due to safety concerns.
June 7th update!
Due to many reports about players being assigned to the wrong region/group, the rule that states that you can't enter the finals if you "entered a group that does not correspond to your region of residence", has been removed. It has now been changed to "If you are entered in a group that does not correspond to your current region of residence, contrary to prior regulations, you may change your group once before the Final Qualifiers begin (Jun 9 08:00 AM GMT+0). If you do not change your group, and remain in a group that does not correspond to your current region of residence, you will be disqualified from the WCS Finals".
Changing your region
If you would like to change you curren region, tap the "Contact Location" button in the in-game announcement regarding this issue, then tap "Contact US", and "Submit Game Content/Issue Inquiry" to fill out the form. Be sure to include the group you want to switch to (A - H) in the "Inquiry Details".
Your current Rank will stay the same when switching groups.
You can only change your group once.
It may take a few days to change your group.
After you have submitted your request to change your group, your account will be investigated. If you sent in a false request to change to a different region, that does not correspond to your current region, you will not be switched, and Konami might take strict actions about your account, which can lead to an account ban.

Just looked at previous comments...
WHO DAFUK brought up Christopher Columbus ??!
really??!! u had to go all nerdy and give us history lessons over stupid people commenting on a children's card game that is played by mostly adults?
god you are hilarous!!!!!!!!
I'm f2p he's f2p, this guy is f2p, that person is f2p blah blah blah, f2p this f2p that, I don't spend money and I'm rank legend 2, wow can i have a cookie?! I'm f2p so totally should deserve to be wc champion even if I didn't win because i'm f2p
You that is just a meme right? Nearly no one is completely f2p.
Repetitive events, streamers constantly complaining about the game(or like Shady stopped playing it altogether), and now the World Cup was a joke. This game quickly went downhill, and Konami are making all the wrong decisions.
I really liked Shadys videos and it always fun to watch him, but he was never a good duelist compared to ruroshin or gunsblazing.
But Konami needs to change something right now. I think the main players at the moment are playing for months now and already unlocked Bakura, Pegasus and the Para Bros. We need a big shake up in this game. New stage level (60+), new character level up to at least 50.
You've litterally unlocked almost everything there is to unlock in this game, like ofc its gonna, be boring then. There are still plenty of people out there who haven't managed to get all the caracters, who haven't managed to get all the cards they need from them due to sheer bad luck. We just got introduced to a brand new event and another one is coming right up.
That milling deck is dirty, as a final wcs match it has no entertainment at all.
its the world championship they play to win not to entertain viewers
Why hate p2w? They are the one that keep this game running. Imagine, you make a game and no one pay for anything, will you still keep the game running? p2w is necessary to the game, f2p don't. Simple as that.
Luck was not on Dkayed's side. I really hope he doesn't become a whale now although we did see the power of credit card throughout the tournament. However budget if not entirely free to play, fiends, toons and weevil burn(which I hate) are pretty good. This game is not F2P for championships except KC cup..
so you're saying that most of the time when you lose it's because you misplayed in some form, and not because they got lucky or you got unlucky? obviously there is skill involved but the game is like 90% luck
skill also translate to knowledge of the game, some ppl like to be protective and put a lot of spells or traps and few monsters thus leading him to brick a lot, so of course he will get a bad hand at the start, don't always blame a bad starting hand on luck, some ppl activate cards on the wrong phase, that does not mean misplay, they literally do not know the difference
the thing is that the difference in skill between the winner of worlds tournament, timmy, and some guy sitting in legend is minimal. most matches just come down to luck and i honestly dont see how that can be argued
