    Combatants will be able to request, upon signing up, whether they wish to be treated as either a professional or an amateur. When sorting the tournament bracket, we will attempt to pair together those of a similar skill level. All combatants may also request an opponent of a similar fighting style (melee vs melee, ranger vs ranger, mage vs mage), whether or not this request can be fulfilled will depend entirely upon the diversity of fighting styles within the pool of combatants. In regards to requesting a match up with a combatant of a similar fighting style, it should be noted, that we cannot police the use of hybrid fighting styles. There is no direct rule prohibiting a player from modifying their deck during the tournament, so there is no guarantee of an exact mirror match.​
    Top combatants from the previous Bear Tavern Brawl tournaments will have spots in this tournament reserved for them. If previous top combatants choose to partake, they will automatically be entered into the tournament as professionals, but may still request an opponent of a similar fighting style.​
    It should also be noted that, to allow for balanced matches, combatant skill will take priority over requests for a specific fighting style when pairing combatants in the brackets. As an example if there are only two rangers within the brackets, one professional and one amateur, a request for a mirror match will most likely be denied.​

    (Subject to change)
    Advancing your character prior to the Brawl is allowed and encouraged. Learn some skills, gain some points!​
    The match starts with contestants in non-combat stance with no active buffs/summons​
    We currently have a no draw system in these tournaments, first fighter to drop loses.​
    No outside help is allowed. (We will work on preventing this with force.)​
    You may use any weapon, skill or spell that is allowed in the game.​
    No player may enter the fighting area without permission.​
    The final match will be a best of three.​
    Elementals/Summons are allowed​
    The use of potions is prohibited.​
    All weapons and armor allowed​
    and lastly...​
    Follow all instructions given by the Battle Master (The one in charge of the current battle)​
    ___________________________________________________________​
    Role Play
    Not required and it won't be enforced but we do request it for show.​
    Entering the arena:
    The combatant will walk up to battles Battle Master and stop in front of him/her and Salute. The Battle Master will return the Salute. The combatant will then walk over to the side that he/she is direct to, turn towards the VIP* and give a Royal Salutation. Once they give the Royal Salutation they will turn to the middle and wait for the 2nd combatant to complete this process. Once both combatants are in their respective positions they will turn to face each other and bow at roughly the same time. The Battle Master will ask if combatants are ready, once both are prepared to proceed, a count down from five will begin "5 4 3 2 1...". Once the count down has expired the Battle Master will say FIGHT and the combatants will be locked in glorious combat until one stands victorious.​
    After the fight:
    The loser will limp off the field back through the entrance. The winner will walk towards, and stop infront of the Battle Master ready to be annouced victorious. After being announced as the winner the combatant will salute the VIP, then bow to the spectators and leave out the entrance.​
    *Note: If there is no VIP (Game Dev) then skip that part.​
    ___________________________________________________________​
    Anyone that wants to fill in the spots that become vacant once the tournament is full send me a PM or simply show up for the event. If there are any no-shows I will toss you in those spots!​
    If you have any extra ideas or input, or would like to enter please post here.​

    Net, pure mage (wand). Pro, I guess.

    I think it is time to reconsider the potion rule, because potions are so horribly useless:)

    We've started allowing them in the oov tournaments because they're not broken anymore (that I've seen???)... even pot chuggers can be killed!

    The only reason that rule is still in place is due to a lack of a review regarding their effectiveness. I'll talk to Mul and Balec but I think given what you've said Violation it should be fine to allow them.

    Is it too late to put my name in? I consider myself an amateur, and my fighting style is ... melee/mage?
