Okay so this will be the official post on wars and other clan information that might be handy in the future. We don't have the official clan names yet, but we have 2 out of 3, which is good enough. The wars won't be exactly the same thing as cambacartas' wars, but it will have the same concepts. Normally wars are supposed to involve just 2 clans, but I think we can get more activity in if we involve all three. This isn't the first wars post. I'll create that when we have our last name. It will include the dates, and a couple reminders. We have not started a war yet, and won't until clan 3 gets a name. Unless it takes too long...then we can have a trial war with just clans 1 and 2.
War Rules and Info
-In war, each user is given 3 'lives' you know, like an old corny video game. If you lose a match, you lose 1 life. (a match is best 2 out of 3)
-You can duel anyone from another clan as many times as you want, so long as you still have lives left and they do too. You can also just duel them for fun, just specify before dueling (Hey, would you mind if we just dueled for fun instead of for the wars? or something. Or just don't use your war deck against them)
-When someone loses all 3 lives, their duels no longer in the war, and will have to wait until the next war is started.
-The winners of wars will be either the clan with the most lives left at the end of the war, or when all other clans have lost all their lives. If there is a tie, the clan that had taken the most lives from other players will be declare the winner of the war.
-Each war will go for about 1-2 weeks
-In the future, we might add a twist to each war. Like "Each deck can only contain ____" or each deck MUST contain a certain card. I just thought of this now, but I think it would be a GREAT idea.
-You're allowed to duel anyone while a war exists, but if you see someone from another clan, it is HIGHLY encouraged that you'd duel them.
-Only the duels with your war-specified deck involving two different clan members will count towards the war.
-If a user abandons a duel, we have plenty of applicable judges on this site who can review the duel for you (I'm one myself). Just post your link in here and we can decide. Hopefully it will be someone from a different clan for example: skittlz100 and schoolnerd51 have a dispute. clans 1 and 3. hopefully, zqyx, sannin3, or drizzy can review it for us. If not, anyone can review it, being as fair as possible.
-When you have a match with someone, the WINNER must post the links in the wars post. THIS IS NOT THE FIRST WARS POST!
Do not post duel links as a reply to this post. If you need help on how to post a link for a duel, you can find it at the bottom of this post.
-If the opponent is cheating/using forbidden cards/going against war rules, you can let them know. If they don't do anything about it, then you can abandon the game, and inform us about it. The other user will be penalized.
-All decks must include all ENGLISH PRINT cards. If the set is out in the OCG but not TCG, don't use them. Rules will apply almost as if you were at an official tournament. If you showed up to a tournament with Japanese cards, I'm sure you won't get very far. If it's just the sites lack of updating pictures, that's fine. Like Brain Research Lab. It came out a long time ago, but they never included an English picture. Cards like those are fine.
-All decks must follow the most recent banlist. As of today (Saturday, April 9th, 2011) the most recent banlist is here : http://www.yugioh-card.com/en/limited/
The next one won't be around until September.
-All decks must follow the individual war rules. For example, if a war rule is that you cannot contain any DARK monsters in your deck, then well, you can't have darks in your deck. lol. We'll work on these special rules some other time. They're not too important at the moment.
-If a player is found to be going against any of these rules, report them in that wars post and they will be penalized
Other Clan Information
-Recruiting : All newcomers are gladly welcomed to the clans. They will be assigned to the next clan. Starting with Clan 1, then to Clan 2, etc. Unless one clan has less people than the others. Like if Clan 1 has 6, Clan 2 has 6, and Clan 3 has 5, the newcomer will be added to clan 3. You can invite people to join your clan as well. I'll probably ask anyone I duel in the rooms if they'd like to join my clan after things start moving.
This will be the list of the clans. This list will be updated each time a new member is added, or lost, etc. So this will constantly be editted. Right now, the clans are as follows:
Masters of Chaos (M.O.C) ( a - before the name means premium)
Red Arch Warriors (R.A.W.)
dixon (requested to join our clan)
The Crimson Valkyrs (T.C.V.)
Inactive Users (Users that said they're interested, but not being active in posts)
If inactive users start responding, we'd be more than glad to put you back in a clan!
Other questions? This post will probably be edited from time to time as more and more ideas and rules come to mind.
Okay, to post the link of your duel, it's quite simple. The two ways I can think off the top of my head are as follows:
A) The easy way, just copy the link of your duel right after you win. It will be at the top of your browser, as any other link would be. After they have declared you winner, you can post that link anywhere, and it will give a re-play of that duel.
B) If you missed your chance to do it the easy way, you can go to Online Games on the left hand side of the home page, and click Yugioh>Check current scores (or if your opponent happened to abandon, you can go to "check disputes"). Find your name, and click "see games". Then look for the duel that you want the link to, and either click the "re-play" button, or right click on the "re-play" button, and click "copy link address" Make sure your link works before posting it on here.
