For PGA to be the best it can be, everyone needs to chip in and help recruit. Because the old system was very confusing, we made a new system with two basic rules:

1. You will be paid 10 BP per recruit
2. You will not be paid until the recruit is tested and put into a dorm.

Thank you for your help, and I hope we can all make PGA a better place!

I thought you could only get BP from arena? If thats not true then why can't shop owners charge BP?

We would have paid you guys in PGA but that never seems to motivate people.

This would do a hole lot more if your shops were actually active.
No one does a GFX shop here and no one requsts decks here I dont think PGA points do any good anymore. thats assuming no one starts a shop soon....

I have a shop here which is why it's a concern for me. People would also be more encouraged to open deck shops and other things if they could get some usable points out of it. You wonder why people don't open shops here, well it's all work and no pay which isn't really enjoyable. Give them a motive and chances are they'll take you up on it.

Battle Points give you the ability to rank up once you've reached the needed amount of Battle Points.

PGA Points are used to buy things like decks and signatures. You can also use PGA to bet on duels.

I'm certain there is going to be some stubbornness on this topic so i'll try to be simple. PGA points have no actual value since no one is willing to open a shop, which is why no one is willing to open a shop... See the problem there? Since BP will always be steady and have a use people actually try earning it. The only way to get PGA to work would be to cause some surge (Open universal shop), Create a system where the sellers actually benefit (% of purchase given as BP), Eliminate it completely (No need to worry about what prizes will be and easier to keep track of prices), Or create a conversion system.
I refrained from using big microeconomics terms because i doubt anyone else here is taking the AP.

100 PGA = 10 BP how bout that shopkeepers can make something out of that and recruiters can make something out of that.

Thinking about it again, Whats the point of having a conversion system now? We could just convert whatever pga people have left into BP. It would make things redundant. Shop owners could just bump up prices to fit the conversion rate. It'd just create an extra topic where people have to waste time getting it converted.

Regarding giving BP(which are Battle Points) for recruitment, is completely unrelated to what the BP are for. It defeats the purpose of BATTLE POINTS in the first place. If we are to give points for something, such as recruiting, it should be done in PGA Points, as it is related to the academy, rather than going into BP, which are specifically gained through dueling and doing various challenges.

So, with that being said, giving PGA Points for recruitment presents flow into the PGA Points system, thus not justifying a reason to use a conversion system to merge the two points systems that we have. Am I against the idea? No. I'm just saying that why should we give BP, which are Battle Points, for something that is completely unrelated to dueling/battling?

Is there some thing else besides PGA points that people here actually use?

Some thing else you could award them?

No one uses PGA points and BP are to show increase in skill.

If you had another prize people would be more convinced to

There is no point in that.. its not that pga has no worth its that there is nothing to do with it.... what would we do with a new prize that we can't do with pga points.

We are working on more uses of pga points currently
