Testing Rubric
--------------------
Tester:
Testee:
Tester's Deck:
Testee's Deck:
--------------------
Rules

Banned Decks:
Win condition decks (FINAL, Final Countdown, Exodia, etc), Burn, Empty Jar, Deck-out, Troll, TIER 1 DECKS

The testee must submit the full decklist (written) of his or her deck to the tester privately before the duels.

The test will consist of three duels between the tester and the testee, and a ruling test afterward. Siding is allowed. (Side decks must consist of either 0 or 15 cards.) The tester will then grade the testee on several factors, resulting in a final grade by which the tester will determine into what dorm the testee shall be placed.

Point requirements and grading
----------------------
Speed Of Deck-10/10
-How fast is your deck? Is it efficient?
----------------
Procedures-10/10
-How well do you handle your cards? Do you know what they all do, and how they work together?
----------------
Deck Build-15/15
-How well thought out is your deck?
----------------
Card Knowledge-10/10
-How well do you understand the rulings on the cards and the cards themselves?
----------------
Flexibility-10/10
-How well do you adapt to changes or the unexpected, especially obstacles set in place by the tester?
----------------
Side Deck-10/10
How well do you side? Are you prepared for most decks?
----------------
Attitude-10/10
-How well do you treat the tester and others during the duel? Are you positive? Do you profane a lot or put others down?
----------------
Duel Results-15/15
-You earn 5 points for each duel won.
----------------
Ruling Test Results-10/10
Percentage of the ruling questions you got correct ratio'd to out of 15.

There are 100 points total.
If you do not meet the needed number of points for your dorm you will go into the dorm for which you have enough points/exceed the points for. YOU CANNOT GO INTO A HIGHER DORM THAN THE ONE YOU HAVE CHOSEN UNTIL A RETEST IS TAKEN. This is to prevent people from just taking the easiest test (Debris) and then getting into Shooting Star.

Quasar Dorm Point Requirements- 98-100
Shooting Star Dorm Point Requirements- 86-97
Stardust Dragon Dorm Point Requirements-60-85
Debris Dragon Point Requirement-59 or lower
-------
Good Luck In your test, and remember to use your best decks.
Have FUN!!!

it kinda looks like whoever made the decks splashed random cards that have something to do with the archetype. for example gusto,demise,Evilswarm,Six Sams, and wind-up

There has been a change in test decks. All decks must be viewed and changed. The changes have mainly occured for obelisk dorm.

Why test with the intent of going into a specific dorm? I could say Slifer tryouts, go in with a strong meta deck or even decent XX-Saber, own it up and get into Obelisk. Just saying. I'd just pick the strongest from each of those 3 categories and use those as THE 3 test decks. But then again win/lose where majority of points are will be skewed. So make a good standardized test deck that is secret and testers play as aggressively as needed to keep it fair but not a slaughter by one side or the other.

How can u disagree with this? this is perfect. Also there should be tests of knowledge as well as practical duels. Razz

We NEED: Hard to beat decks, with no OP decks allowed. It is the testies' choice if they want to purposefully lose and be in slifer or ra. It is much fairer that way.

I think we should be, like if we see a card that is not useful or good in the deck and we know another one that is.




Quote from youtube user ChroahCrest:
Shi En? Super Poly
Stardust? Super Poly
Scrap Dragon? Super Poly
Brionac, Gungnir, Trishula? Super Poly
Master Hyperion, Herald? Super Poly
Monarchs? Super Poly
Girl problems? Super Poly
Debts to settle? Super Poly
Could switching to Geico really save you 15% or more on car insurance? Does Super Poly provide answers to any opponent's play?

I'm not even using these decks. They are either bad, I don't know how to use them, out of date, I don't recognize the cards by pics, and/or this whole new testing system is broke as hell.

I'll just play my RaySworn deck to test, I might surrender the deck list for the test deck (it's super consistent, rarely loses, and can be scaled back in terms of aggression).

Who in their right mind would choose a low dorm? The only reason that would work is if the point system here was firmly in place but it's not. Challenge duels are kinda rare, there are no outlets for points, and you can rack them up by posting. Since there is no incentive to go for red and Obelisk is best, people being inherently narcissistic, will go for Obelisk and not purposely lose. So a massacre deck is needed, but not OP. If the prospective entrant isn't that great than the tester can scale back the aggression to not slaughter him and make him feel better or like a he had a fair game.

ok. so there has ben a change in plans again. how about. instead of going to a specific dorm and getting a different dorm. you just get the dorm u picked if u have enough points. this will eliminate any possibility of cheating like ganador has pointed out. also no more test decks the tester will just record the decks they both used and then record which dorm was chosen to make the results valid for the testee.
