Singapore Showdown Grand Event 2011 Summary

Singapore Showdown is a series of weekly tournaments held to allow participants a chance to be awarded a sponsored trip to Taiwan, to participate in the singles event of this year's Asia Championship Plus.

A total of 8 tournaments were held to allow participants to receive invitation to the Finals held on 10th to 11th September 2011. Winners of each tournament were granted direct entry to day 2, while 1st to 3rd runner-up were invited to day 1 of the finals.

  2. William (T.G. Agent)
  3. Bryan Chua (Fairy Agent)
  4. Kian Leng (T.G. Agent)
  5. Samuel (Twilight Lightsworn)
  6. Jia Rui (Whirlwind Blackwings)

Out of the 8 players, 2 (25%) were playing T.G. Agent and the same number were playing Fairy Agent. To have 4 out of 8 (50%) of decks advancing to day 2 to be variants of Agent reflects the dominance of the arch type for the time-being.

Despite being badly affected by the new F&R list in September 2011, Junk Debris continues to enjoy top spots in this tournament. Could this spell another round of weakening in the next F&R list? Only time will tell.
