Ratings Explained


So, you got an email with your ratings info and are wondering what all of it means. Let us try to shed some light and explain our current ranking rules:

  • If you have an average rating of at least 16, a minimum of 10 forms in our system and have judged for us at at least 1 show… You are level 2.
  • If you have an average rating of at least 18.5, a minimum of 20 forms in our system, have judged for us at at least 2 shows and have been with us for at least 6 months … You are level 3.
  • If you have an average rating of at least 19, a minimum of 40 forms in our system, have judged for us at at least 4 shows and have been with us for at least a year… You are eligible for level 4.

Eligible for level 4?rankings 2
Yes, eligible for level 4. Promotion to ranks 4 (and beyond) is not an automatic process. Once a year, after Gen Con has been tallied, there will be a round of voting where the current level 4’s get to weigh in on who joins their ranks. We will announce the new Level 4 DM’s at Winter Fantasy at the HG Members meeting.
