Injunction Prohibits Upper Deck Support for Yu-Gi-Oh!

Konami wins the latest battle against Upper Deck, receiving a temporary injunction against Upper Deck regarding the Yu-Gi-Oh! franchise. 

A temporary injunction has been granted to Konami Digital Entertainment that prohibits Upper Deck from offering any support for the Yu-Gi-Oh! trading card game.

“This ruling will immediately affect all support for Yu-Gi-Oh! online and through Upper Deck’s proprietary Mantis tournament software,” according to a statement from Upper Deck. “In addition, the cancellation of Upper Deck sponsored Organized Play, which it hoped would be temporary, is now permanent. We do not feel that this course of action is in the best interest of the players and regret that the absence of Upper Deck support will leave such a large void in the Yu-Gi-Oh! community.”
