I’m emailing you to let you know that a new version of the rulebook has been posted to www.yugioh-card.com. You will find it under the Gameplay section of your country’s official site.
The notable change in this version – which is version 8.0 – deals with Xyz Monsters and Materials.
You will find this information on Page 45, under “Xyz Materials”.
Monsters that are used to Xyz Summon are called ‘Xyx Materials’, and are placed underneath the Xyz Monster, to show that they are attached to it. Monsters that have become Xyz Materials are not treated as cards on the field. When an Xyz Monster leaves the field, all of the Xyz Materials attached to it are sent to the Graveyard. If an Xyz Monster is flipped face-down, or becomes controlled by the opponent, the Xyz Materials are not sent to the Graveyard. They remain attached to the Xyz Monster.
Leaves The Field
Some monsters have effects that activate when they ‘leave the field’. For example, these effects activate when the monster is sent to the Graveyard, or is banished, or is returned to the hand or Extra Deck. When a monster on the field is shuffled into the Main Deck, or becomes an Xyz Material, it is no longer a card on the field, however its effects that activate when it ‘leaves the field’ will not activate.”
Please take the time to review the new rulebook, and alert the players in your area about this new version.
Judges should also read the article that was just posted on the Konami Strategy Site, which discusses Xyz Monsters and Materials – it will answer other questions you may have about Xyz. You can find it by clicking this link:
Thank you for your patience as we worked on the many translations and dealt with the other logistics involved in bringing you this update.
Remember that the correct email to use for rulings questions is firstname.lastname@example.org.
I still do not have any reliable updates about the status of the Judge Forum – I know we would all like to have it back online and available. I hope it will be soon.
Thank you again for all your efforts, they are appreciated as always!

In PDF, search for page 49.
Now I can took a deep breath and decline if people is starting to use Sangan's effect after it was detached for Leviathan's effect.
Anyway, where are you now, Kevin Tewart?

We're Rulesharked by the Head Judge. Now the T on the TCG officially stands for Tewart, Tourguide, and Troll.
Nice move Konami. Nice Move. Now, let the rage of those who spend 200$ on Tourguide commence.

Lol, guess that will make people mad at Tourguide, even though she is awesome.
This really makes it fair. Exceeds have their own powers and it is unfair for people to get 2 for the price of one just by removing Xyz materials. At least now people can be a bit more speculative at how to use Xyz monsters.
