Default KDE Tournament Policy finalized and posted

Two down, one to go.

http://www.yugioh-card.com/en/gamepl...%2007Jul10.pdf

The Yu-Gi-Oh! specific policies should not, I hope, be far behind.

Awesome, great job Julia.

However, one thing caught my eye: "A list of suspended players can be located here http://www.yugioh-card.com/en/events "

I don't see anything? Or is that the next document you'll be posting, "two down one to go"?

I think you should get rid of that non-bribery policy...if you do, you may notice an increase in your number of wall of ivys...

Jk, anyway, great job ^ ^

Suspended player list will be going up soon. But the "one to go" I was referencing is the Yu-Gi-Oh! Tournament Policy.

That will be a happy day.

Don't you think using a TI-83 calculator that lets you see previous changes is good enough? I understand Konami wanting to keep disputes down, but I don't see the difference between using a TI-83 calculator and paper/pencil.

For counters, can we use the numbers on the dice or do we have to put one item for each counter on the card?

It's better to just flat-out say "You need paper and pencil" than make special exceptions to certain types of calculators.

"Predatory trading practices (targeting inexperienced or young players for extremely unbalanced trades) are not tolerated."

Nice to see this is still in effect.

"Persons who publicize privileged information, such as set contents, card spoilers, etc. for KDE brands before such information is officially released to the public, will incur penalties including suspension from participation in Organized Play."

Julia, could you elaborate on this? Sometimes this information is present in Japanese magazines (Such as new restriction lists) and is leaked early to the market and posted to the Internet. Do these sorts of things fall under that category? What about discussing OCG-set contents when they are available in the OCG, but not yet announced for the TCG (Such as the core set contents of Starstrike Blast?)

I'd imagine that was aimed towards people that are more in "the know" and like to tell their buddies about stuff beforehand. Could be wrong though.

That thought also crossed my mind. For example, I know that Michael Kohanim (I'm sorry if I misspelled your name D: ) knew the full list for Turbo Pack 3 and wrote an article about it, but obviously was not allowed to tell anyone due to NDEs. Is the policy referring to stuff like this?

You guys can ask questions and I'll answer when I have time...I've got Comic Con to work from tomorrow onwards though while finishing up Gen Con and Worlds, so I'm a little pressed for time.

For the:
"Predatory trading practices (targeting inexperienced or young players for extremely unbalanced trades) are not tolerated."

What if the trade is either:
1. Explained to be unfavorable to the less experienced player
2. Only slightly unfavorable
3. Both of the above

I had a situation where number 3 applied at a regional and the less experienced player really wanted to make the trade anyways. Someone else later told the Head Judge who told me to take back the trade.

There are alot of differences, but one is in staff interaction. If I'm a judge, and there's a dispute, I'd definitely rather see the relevant info on paper which I can easily read and understand, versus a calculator that (for all I know) could be manipulated to some degree I'm not aware of.

Lots of people don't know how a scientific/graphing calculator works or what they're capable of. But everybody (hopefully) can read.

Also, I'm so glad to see this up on the site. Big congratulations (and thanks) to the OP team, I know you guys worked extremely hard over a long period of time to get this written / approved / posted.

So any one working for konami, or family member of some one working for konami, cannot enter official konami tournaments and people who work for companies affiliated with Konami also cannot participate in official konami tournaments.

So I realized something wrong with this; The guy who does Yusei's voice for the TV show, and his son played at Shonen Jump New Jersey. Now, even though those policy documents werent public at that time, I know from the past Konami has held this rule into account.

Can you possibly explain why that was allowed Julia?

Why can't Konami people participate? I don't see why not unless it means that they can directly get the best deck with relative ease and know virtually anything and everything regarding the game..

Because of some one affiliated with Konami happens to do well, Konami wont like hearing "OH the tournament was rigged!" and that kinda junk.

edit: thats not the only reason, but thats a big one

A card is considered to be marked if it can be identified without seeing the front of the card. This includes warping, discoloration, and water-marks, or if the cards are sleeved, sleeves with identifying marks or other unique characteristics that separate it from other cards in the Deck.
This seems interesting to me. Does this mean that we can alter the front of our cards, so long as they can still be identified only from the front? (ie. Drawing on them with marker)
