SBA Starter guide

Post by mido9 on 2011-08-11, 01:34

Sacred Beast Academy (SBA) is all about making friends, dueling, and friendly competition.


Dueling System and Hamachi
Dueling Network
SBA uses Dueling Network (DN). That system is the only system that is official for our tournaments, duel arenas, and any other sort of dueling event held in this website. If you don't know DN a link can be found by clicking here. Make sure to register, otherwise you can't use this system, and try to be active in their site. Without them this site wouldn't exist.
Hamachi
Hamachi will allow you to keep yourself communicated with members of our forum. If you don't have Hamachi please follow the download link by clicking here(Unmanaged mode). Once you've downloaded and installed Hamachi make sure to join an academy network. These networks will allow you to communicate with registered members of SBA. The networks can be found forum hams topic, but we will provide them below:

SBA 1 SBA 2 SBA 3 SBA 4 SBA 5
All lower case, and the password "SBA". Just click join.

Registration
Before you can do anything in our site you must register. If you haven't already registered, it is very simple. First you scroll to the top of the forum and look for the register tab . Once you click there, you will be taken to a new page where you will be asked to come up with a Forum Name,password and e-mail (please make sure to properly spell your e-mail so that you may receive notifications). After that, you will be asked to type a captcha, once you finish that your account will be activated and you will be free to post in our academy by logging in. You log in by clicking the Log in button.

Editing Your Profile
Adding an avatar and signature gives life to your profile so it's always nice when our members have some sort of personality behind their words. In order to edit your profile click on the profile tab and you will be taken to the page where edits can be made.
Preferences
These are preferences that will affect your forum experience, you should read them carefully and click yes or no to which ever preference suits you best.
Signature
Every member is allowed signatures and userbars. A signature can't contain any improper images, and try to keep it 400x120 or less
Avatar
Avatars can be uploaded directly from your PC to your forum by clicking this tab, most avatars are 200x150 so please have that in mind when uploading, again no improper images.

Introduce Yourself
We want to know about you, and first impressions are always important, so make sure to post an introduction by clicking here. There people will welcome you into our academy, and you will have gotten your first post.

Getting Posts
We are looking for activity from our members, so we'd like for everyone to be active and post in topics where they feel they can give an answer, or just discuss things. Sometimes posts are required to enter tournaments and other events, so make sure to always post. There are various ways to earn posts, the easiest is by going to the posting games section and post a reply to the game, it is fun and a good way to earn posts, you can get there by clicking here . You can also welcome new members into our academy every time someone posts an introduction. Going to people's dorm rooms and leaving them a message is also a good way to earn posts, lastly one easy way is to go in the off-topic section and discussing the various topics that are found there, you can even create your own topic and it doesn't have to be academy or yugioh related, people will reply to your posts and you can reply back.

Getting Into a Dorm
To get into a dorm you must first be tested, to find a tester you can ask on the chatbox , or join the hamachi network(preferably the former) in which all our testers can be found. Once you have may choose any of the three dorms, then you should go to the section of the forum that corresponds to your dorm and post a room, preferably something like "mido9's room" but you can be creative, just remember to include your name.

Dueling in a Duel Arena
Here at SBA we offer three different arenas, the way you duel in these arenas are very simple. Each arena has a specific set of rules, so make sure to read those before dueling in one, the most commonly used arena is the regular arena. The way you duel in any arena is by first having an opponent who also has a rank(in a dorm) in this academy, you guys must then duel two out of three times. The winner then goes to the arena that was dueled in and posts a new topic with both your names for example "mido9 vs. vaati" and posts the outcome (2-0 my favor or 2-1 my favor) the loser then simply replies by saying "confirm" any other stuff can be written but those two things MUST be posted in order for staff to update duel recross, and give speed credits.

Getting Sacred Credits (SC)
Sacred credits are like a currency in our academy, you can use it to buy deck themes, custom titles, custom bubbles, and sometimes will be required to participate in certain events. There are various ways to earn speed credits, the easiest way is winning in a duel arena. You can also earn SC by participating in bounty hunts, winning tournaments, and other events.

Getting Shadow Tokens (ST)
SP is kind of a more valued currency in TDA. You earn them in the same way you earn speed credits, but these can only be earned by dueling in the shadow realm. Each victory in the shadow realm will get you 1 ST, but each loss will send you to the shadow realm for a certain amount of time depending on your rank. When you're in the shadow realm your title changes to 'lost soul' and every time you duel while in the shadow realm you earn half SC of what you would normally earn.

Asking for Help
Staff is not only here to moderate the forum, but to help you! You are the most important part of our academy, and if you're not happy then we can't grow as an academy. Dorm Leaders are administrators of the forum, and moderators help us, and together we form the staff. PM any dorm leader or member with an orange/gray name with any questions you may have about the forum, or reporting any problem. We are here to have fun, so now that you know how the academy works, go out there and have some fun.
