Users who are viewing this thread


Do you have what it takes to be a Blademaster?
This is a tournament different to others, designed to test your skill, endurance and temperament over two disciplines.
Prizes for the top four duelists!

Head Admin: Osiris
Admins: TBA? (volunteers, you??)

Tournament details:

Blademaster 2 will start on May 12th
The Tournament will be run as a double elimination tournament.
The Brackets will be randomised.
The Tournament run time will be dependent on number of sign ups and will be announced after sign ups close. Hopefully a month or two maximum
All matches will involve at least two different parts.
First the players will have a first to 10 Sword and Shield duel.
The players will follow this up with a first to 10 freestyle duel (see rule set below)
Players may alternate the order of these duels only if both players agree to it, otherwise it will be as stated above.
The player with the most points after both duels is declared the victor.
If the players have an equal number of points after both ft10 fights a tiebreaker will be fought.(see details in ruleset below)
Points = rounds of a duel won

Example: Match

Player A vs Player B

first duel  A 10-8 B (sword and shield)
second duel  A 8-10 B (freestyle)

This results in a draw and tiebreaker will be used and both players shall play until one has a 2 point advantage over the other using 1h sword and no shield

The list of rules for Blademaster 2

:- Leaving in the middle of a duel is strictly forbidden unless there's a valid reason like high ping.
:- There is to be no flaming or insulting your opponent, evidence of this will result in disqualification.
:- If you fail to contact your opponent, you should contact one of the admins for them to look into the case. And if they fail to contact/find an agreement with this person as well, a default win will be given to you.
:- All duels will be fought as a first to 10. any server maybe used if both parties agree to it, if unable to agree the default server shall be The Ludus. (note you need to supply a good reason for not agreeing ie high ping)
:- What I say is final, You follow the spirit of the rules and not try to abuse any loopholes,

The losers bracket will be different this time round. The lower bracket will have event days and ill explain what that is here ^^

Every Saturday the losers bracket will duel on mass until the bracket is caught up to the main bracket.  So you may have to turn up and duel twice, This can take place at any time if agreed with your opponents but the default time to start will be 6pm UK time, if you do not turn up you will lose by default (time can be debated before start of tournament)

I usually don't partake in duel tournament but you got my sign-up just by getting Ian Beattie to do that intro.  :party:

Unbelievable intro haha, good to see the tournament happening

about the stuff u wanted opinion about:

1) If you include a prize, either moss or force them to record their rounds.
2) Yes, but with a prize you should consider a double bracket system with strict deadlines(no extensions) and seeding ofc.
3) If there's a prize, no. Seed + Double bracket seems the way to give more chances to everyone and it should be the only way to come back to winner's bracket. If you don't have a prize for the tournament you could implement this.
4) Double bracket is usually set in game tournaments to avoid bad match ups and keep it as balanced and safe for everyone, so that they don't get unfairly dropped early but at least the chance to prove they deserve to reach their max potential on the tournament, if you wouldn't run a double bracket system from start, making it on last top 20 could be a choice but BO3s would serve better that purpose.


Grandmaster Knight
