The Herald’s Guild ranking updates were sent out this week and since we saw some questions pup up repeatedly we added a short explanation to the site.
You can find it here
But to save you the click, what you will find on that page is this:
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?
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.
