Its just a better way of ranking up. Instead of rank-ups every week... doesn't show skill at all. This improves your dueling, which is what this academy is focusing on. It gives everyone much more experience & actually makes people WANT to duel. For motivation purposes as well. I think its all around the best idea.

well since ya like them let me tell u my theory about what i was thinking. first off wins and losses yeah we lose all the time and we win some of the time. here is what i came up with its not wheather u win or lose its how u make ur hand. for exam-ple if u have a bad hand instead of whining about it why not play ur deck the best u can that all that should matter but my understanding is this system is mainly about wins thats y i dont agree with it

Okay, Burst. I'll try and explain how this works and why we did it.

1. The old way was flawed and was too much to handle. Everyone was demanding rank-ups at such an alarming rate that the admins couldn't keep up with it. This way, we won't get swamped with tons of demands and requests.

You'd understand if YOU had to make sure everyone was assigned to the proper dorms and you had to put up with 50 million requests to rank-up.

2. The old way focused on one win, not really proving if you're good enough or not. That can be flawed as the person they're challenging may never draw the cards he need to actually challenge his opponent. This way, people need numerous wins to rank up. If they reach the required number, then they're worthy enough to move up.

3. This new system is a lot more efficient and adds an element of competition that this academy desperately needed. Plus, I believe we might gain more members if a more organized, challenging system is put into place, so here it is.

Hope that helped.

In the old way you had to beat them in a match, not one duel.

This way also brings a much much much more VARIETY which we were desperately lacking. Since we were just beginning, this place was dead.. we needed something that can bring involvement between our members while also improving the Academy. And that is why we thought and decided to do this as well. There just wasn't enough in this Academy. And plus, people logged on ONLY on Saturdays just so they can rank up. I mean, why? Shouldn't people be awarded for their victories in a duel? This allows everyone to improve every little bit. This way also brings the forum ALIVEEEEEEEEEEEE. I mean if you looked at the top posters before.. it was dead wasn't it? This was made things much better. And this system doesn't primarily focus on winning. It's focusing on enjoyment and improvement in every way.

Is this still in effect where if you lose the rank up duel, you lose the majority of your points?

That seems a little harsh..

It still applies. You need to take the time while getting the bp to get better. If you lose and can just try again a day or two later you haven't really improved.

I don't think you can rank down.

Here are the points you start with for each dorm:
Slifer: 100
Ra: 300
Obelisk: 600
