Affiliation: The duelists of JvS
We are going to try and keep you updated on everything that we are working on. These news letters will be kinda spontaneous, so don't expect them on a regular schedule, however they will explain some of the new ideas that are coming up through the GBA staff and will be put towards the GBA 2.0 So here we go,
- *Since we shut down we have opened up for new Judges to help within the Arena. We have a couple that have already been set up with their possitions, but there is still a lot of space available, so if you want to sign up feel free to do so here
*We have started to make progress on refining our judgements and making them more universal. The first step? We will be focusing more on what the two duelists do right, then what duelists had done wrong. Yes this transition will be difficult, but we didn't like the way the last tourney went where it seemed most people advanced because their opponent did less wrong then them. This is a concept that we are trying to get out of the GBA.
*Two new HC's were selected, as Ak-Akari Obachu and Dunta Coral have stepped in to take up the reigns of those before them. Wish them luck, they are going to need it.
*Quote of the session, while Inky and Dunta were trying to teach Ak-Akari how to use the Edit button on the Moderation default. Can you guess which part was changed?

And I smell of Elderberries..
*We are now planing on switching up how we rank our users. The current overall rankings will be archived and given a new name. At the same time we will be opening up a special "Challenge Match rankings" which will be a yearly ranking system. Do not worry, every battle you win in the Challenge matches are still reflected in the "Overall rankings" (Working Title), however they are not going to be updated as frequently as the Challenge Match Rankings will be.
- To add on to this, we are also thinking of something special where the tourney duels will now count as double points for a win. This will emphasize participation in the tournaments as well as Challenge matches to get people working towards the end goal: Win it all
That is it from us on this end. If you read something here you liked, or something you want clarified please post here and one of the lovely staff members will get to you as soon as possible. Also, other ideas to solve our problems are still allowed, maybe being a judge blinds us from seeing something that you all see..
