The original and grandest of all the traditions of the (JAWA) League, the duel tournament is a single-elimination event currently held at the beginning of each League. At early tournaments, the winner received the right to challenge the reigning (JAWA) Champion for his title. Presently, the winner of the duel tournament automatically becomes the new (JAWA) Champion if the reigning champion is not present to defend his title. The reigning champion no longer participates in the tournament, so that a new challenger is selected each month.
Those wanting to participate will be asked to form a straight line in the middle of the platform on Bespin. The organizer will then take down the names of those wanting to participate (The (JAWA) Champion cannot participate).
Once the brackets are randomized using a program, the duels will then be announced. Duellists must engage in a duel (100/100), the winner will move up the bracket whilst the loser will be eliminated.
If a participant falls off the edge whilst both duellists remain untouched (100/100) then a rematch will take place. If a participant has less than 100/100 then the duel cannot be restarted and the other player will win.
You may only use one saber hilt throughout the tournament, meaning you cannot change from single to duals, duals to staff or anything else.
Please try to remain quiet during the duels, if you need to say something or want to greet someone as they enter during a duel, then use private messaging (/tell).
If the (JAWA) Champion is not present then the finalists in the tournament will battle in a best out of 3 set of duels to determine the new champion.
