JDC Season 30 Has Begun
I am happy to announce that Round 1 of JDC's 30th season is now officially underway!
First off, I'd like to personally apologise for the delayed start. I take full responsibility for this happening due to me being disorganised and not making adequate prior preparations beforehand. Hopefully I can make it up to all of you by bringing you a great season! Better late than never, eh?
Round 1 is going to last until next Monday (29th July) instead of the usual weekend changeover in order to compensate for the delay. We've got a fun and straightforward round challenge to kick things off, which will be well worth your while attempting if you're chasing the points!
This brings me to a special announcement regarding this season. We, the JDC team, have decided to add a new rule regarding duel submissions:
All invitational JDC duels (except those under special circumstances such as tournaments) now require at least one member of JDC staff to be present to act as a referee to ensure the legitimacy the match.
Furthermore, only JDC staff are now able to submit and verify these duels.
Submission rules for team games remain unchanged, however.
While this may seem like a radical change, this rule is in effect to ensure that no "fake" duels are submitted and that matches are played fairly. In past seasons there have been several cases of questionable duels being submitted in addition to cases where others appeared to be intentionally "feeding" points to other players. Ultimately JDC is a tournament, and we strive to keep it as competitive as possible, while also being fun and inclusive for all.
You needn't feel put off playing duels however - the best thing to do is to request a "Duel Club" where a member of the JDC team can oversee and submit a number of duels in a single session in one of the dedicated multiplayer servers.
These will be listed as their own event type when they are running, so keep checking the JDC site if you're keen to take part or just want to watch! You can either approach an offical online or send a message to one of us on Discord. Don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions, either.
Finally, huge shout out to Lynx for the amazing logo she made for this season. :)
Thank you for your patience, and I wish you a very happy JDC 30! Best of luck to you all!
