    KCDA Graduation Requirements

    Post by DanceJonDance on Sat Apr 23, 2011 12:25 pm

    It's not often that we find an academy that actually tries to focus on teaching duelists something, and it's even less often to find one that is successful. Why is it that we call these forums academies, but never bother to actually teach duelists something?

    Simple: Most players don't want to learn.

    This is fine, however, we are different. We will encourage players to learn to play the game properly, but we will not force them. If players want to graduate from The Academy all they need to do is follow the following graduation requirements:

    NOTE: Each of the graduation requirements have been split into 2 lists. The basic requirements are to be completed before the final requirements can be undertaken. When you wish to attempt a final requirement, contact the administrator that will be assessing you in that requirement.

    Entrance into the Underclassman group:
    Entrance into this group is granted by simply asking for it by applying here, or PMing an administrator. Once you are in this group you will be allowed to create a dorm for yourself in the Underclassmen section of The Academy. Your username will turn from Blue to Red. You will also be eligible to start completing the requirements below to make it into the Upperclassmen group. It's advised that you copy this list and paste it into your room so that you can check off your goals as you achieve them.
