Changed: 3c3
Testing generally commences with the station used at the end of the previous ratification round. The IMCS has decades of expertise as to the station(s) most likely to highlight weaknesses in a given ruleset, and after a few iterations a new test station is selected in the area of the network in which the new ruleset is at its weakest. At the end of several rounds of testing, the new ruleset is traditionally named in honour of this station. It is also common to publish an acknowledgment to the staff at that station for their help and assistance during the development of ruleset, without which further development of the game would not be possible.
