    Can some people of the enlight me please ?

    i thank you in advance for any answer

    Applications for Darkmoon Faires require a minimum standard of 'on-hand' experience to be considered for the team, even more so for something as big as World Championships. Whilst you do not neccesarily have to be a Champion of the Black Flame to be chosen to work at the DMF, it is important that you are able to demonstrate previous experience of judging at your local club or card shop (which you would put under 'List of Events worked for CZE'). Battlegrounds, Realm Qualifiers and Sneak Previews are all good local events to put your rules knowledge into practise before applying for your first DMF.

    It is one thing knowing the rules: applying them correctly is often something else and CZE often needs to see some evidence of application when considering their volunteer selection.

    Hope this helps.
