Dueling Points

Dueling PointsAlso known as DPs, this's the currency in RDA used to purchase things on the academy basically used for any virtual purchases in the academy.

Each new member begins with 100 DPs and you can use those points to purchase things from the shops; RDA's Main Shop you can purchase a reset item for records, a glowing name, a custom rank, a custom title and the double spell for arenas, etc... . Other than that, you can spend the DPs on GFX Shops and Deck Shops.

How to get them? Getting the dueling points is very easy on RDA, starting from dice game sot events and arenas. Read bellow to understand everything.

Skill Points

Also known as SPs, the most important thing you need in the academy to dorm up yourself.
Earning skill points is easy since you have many things around RDA to gain SPs from we have dueling arenas and tons of other events that will be explained later on this guide.

Dorms System

RDA's system is all about gathering points and achieving requirements in order to get yourself into a dorm and level up from it to another one.

The following link will lead you to the full explanation of this system and requirements, make sure to read it HERE.

When you achieve all requirements to get into a dorm, you'll have to post about it asking to enter a dorm using the format HERE.

RDA offers you many types of dueling arenas:

Battle Tower (BT): Ranked arena with ELO Ranking and the official arena in RDA.

Your information will all be displayed in your profile, here's an example on how things would look:


RDA has a huge base of events that we host all the time and each one of them has it's own amount of rewards of SPs and DPs.

The standard rewards are:
8 players tournament: 10 SPs, 300 DPs and above.
16 players tournament: 20 SPs, 600 DPs and above.
Special Events: 25 SPs and above.

RDA Live: Normal live tour that will be hosted whenever the chatbox is active, this live gives you DPs and SPs.

RDA Mini Live: A second type of live tours following a round robin system, can be hosted anytime the chatbox is active.

Casual Tournaments: RDA casuals are hosted all the time, and from their name, they're casual tours with small adds and change of rules that will accrue every casual.

RDA's League:

Hunting Tournaments: An event where you give in your soul to be haunted by others, an event based on rolling your opponents name.

Gozen Challenge: Another RDA typical, in this event you'll have a restriction on your deck; you can run monster of only one Attribute in main, extra and side.

Warlord's Rivalry: A very similar event to gozen but in this case, you can run only one monster Type in your deck.

Highlander: An event based on highlander, basically all cards in the game (except banned) turns limited, so you can run only 1 copy of each card in your deck.

Aggiba's Blessings: A tournament for the elites, those who became 1st place winners of other tours will receive an invitation to Aggiba's Blessing for a chance to compete on RDA's crown.
