17. Challenge Value
Every tournament has a Challenge Value, abbreviated to C-Value. The C-Value of a tournament is an approximate difficulty measurement of the tournament relative to other types of tournaments. A player has more potential to rapidly change his or her UDE rating at tournaments with a higher C-Value. A World Championship tournament will have the highest possible C-Value, and a smaller, local tournament will have the lowest possible C-Value.
C-Value Tournament Types:
10 Official Sanctioned UDE Tournament, Sneak Preview Tournament
20 City Championship, State Championship, Comic Book Challenge
30 Regional Championship, Pro Circuit Qualifier, Scholarship Circuit
40 National Championship, Shonen Jump Championship, or $10,000 Championship
50 World Championship or Pro Circuit Tournament
The C-Value of a tournament is modified by the certification level of the head judge. A skilled head judge can increase the C-Value of a tournament, which may help players who want to increase their UDE ratings by winning matches at that tournament. The C-Value is increased by one for each level of specialization that the head judge has in Player Management and the Game Rules specialization that matches the game that was used at the tournament. Only the certification of the head judge affects the CValue of a tournament. Scorekeeper, Tournament Organizer and Demo Team specializations do not affect the C-Value of a tournament.
Example: A judge with a level 2 specialization in Player Management, a level 1 specialization in Vs. System Rules Knowledge, and a level 3 specialization in Yu-Gi-Oh! Rules Knowledge would add a total of 5 (2+3) to the C-Value of any Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG tournament for which he or she was the head judge. The same judge would only add a total of 3 (2+1) to the C-Value of a Vs. System tournament for which he or she was the head judge.
