Sounds really cool. I hope I can make it there for a change. My French ain't that great but I hope it won't be too much of a problem.
Do I need a DCI account to participate and if so, is it possible to get one on the tournament itself?
(Something else, Michel, you asked me in the TMB topic to mail you, but, well, since I don't know your e-mail address I sent you a private message. I'm not sure you received it yet, so just to let you know.)

No problem if your French is not that good ... our Dutch and English are not that bad :)
As the tournament will not be DCI sanctioned (DCI sanctioned tournaments are over since Aug 31), you don't need a DCI number.
But if you want one, for eventual other Wizards games in the future, I'll have DCI cards with me.

Thanks for the info. I have another question. EX: R&S cards aren't allowed, right? But what about the darkness and metal energy cards from that set? Can we use those in a deck? And if so, are they played as the genesis version or should that specific card be played following the new text? I'm not sure about this. they're basically the same cards, but because of rule changes, they changed the text of the actual card as well.

No problem for me if you want to use Metal or Darkness energy from R&S like you may use Japanese cards (don't forget the opaque sleeves ;) ).
As the tournament will follow the Wizards rulings, the new text will not be applicated, even if you play with R&S energies.
