How was the week for everyone out there?
The Booster Pack for “KanColle, 2nd Fleet” was released last week and I had lots of fun playing with these new cards!

We have concluded the Continental Finals for Bushiroad World Championship(BWC) 2015 in all regions. 3 players were crowned Continental Champions beating our over 9,000 players who participated in the event. Yes, THAT’S OVER 9,000!!!
I cannot wait to see these awesome players at the BWC World Finals in January 2016!
But before that, we had a quick interview with the winners! Let’s meet Alexy first!

— How long have you been playing Weiss Schwarz? How did you start playing Weiss Schwarz?

I’ve been playing for 3-4 years now. At first I found out about Cardfight!! Vanguard and thought it was pretty cool. Then I saw a pair of sleeves from my favorite anime and it led me to Weiss Schwarz.


— What do you enjoy about Weiss Schwarz?

It’s a really fun game and very casual in nature.


— Which is your favorite title in Weiss Schwarz English Edition?

I would have to say Love Live!.



— Do you have a favorite card in Weiss Schwarz English Edition?

Mecha Jennifer, because I really like Disgaea. She wins me games and it’s really troll.


— How do you feel about your results in the Bushiroad World Championship 2015?

I feel really great about it, I didn’t expect to go undefeated the whole tournament.


— Do you have any word of advice for new players who want to play better?

Just try to have fun with it. This game is full of surprises. Just keep playing and you’ll eventually get some wins.

Now that you guys have met Alexy, it’s time for you to meet Benjamin, our champion from the Bushiroad World Championship 2015 European Continental Finals.

— How long have you been playing Weiss Schwarz? How did you start playing Weiss Schwarz?

I have been playing Weiss Schwarz for 1.5 years already. I started with a Sword Art Online Trial Deck, which I happened to find while shopping.


— What do you enjoy about Weiss Schwarz?

It is not as complicated as other games. I like that you can play with your favorite titles and I enjoy the game mechanics.


— Which is your favorite title in Weiss Schwarz English Edition?

Attack on Titan.



— Do you have a favorite card in Weiss Schwarz English Edition?

My favorite card is “104th Cadet Corps Class, Sasha”.


— How do you feel about your results in the Bushiroad World Championship 2015?

Of course I am very happy about my results, even though I made a misplay during the Swiss-rounds, but everything went well during the top cut.
It was a bit sad to see such a low number of participants, but it couldn’t be helped due to the terrorist attacks in France.


— Do you have any word of advice for new players who want to play better?

You don’t need to have a meta deck to be successful. For example buying 3 Trial Decks is enough (i.e. with Attack on Titan).
Taking care of resources is important and take notice of your colors during the game.
Extra: Greetings to my girlfriend backpacking in South-Africa!

What’s Next?

Once again, congratulations to both of them for making it to the BWC World Finals next month in Tokyo. We can’t wait to witness all the exciting moments.
Stay tuned next week for the interview of our Asia-Oceania Continental Champion!
