    Last time I tried this it never got off the ground for lack of player
    support, which apparently was mostly due to people not knowing about
    it.

    The date and time is still TBD. Tentatively scheduled for this Friday at 6:00 PM EST if I get enough teams in time.

    Rules subject to change
    1. There will be 16 2-player teams that will be bracketed by me. Slots
    are allotted on a first-come, first-serve basis. additional teams will
    be kept in reserve in case a slotted team does not show. In the case
    of an unexpectedly large number of submitted teams, the total number
    of slots will increase to 32.

    2. The only template restrictions are no hiding and stealth, and pets will not be allowed - pvp does not stand for player versus pet. The only exceptions are for
    regular horses, ostards, llamas, swampies, grizzled mares, or faction warhorses.

    3. Fighters may resurrect each other during combat.

    4. No precasting will be allowed, to include taking special forms such
    as wraith form.

    5. A res point with a red healer will be provided for the dead from
    each round to safely resurrect and reequip.

    6. This is a single elimination tournament.

    7. The first team with both players dead at the same time is the loser - should both players die and a mount somehow kill the last opponent, they've still lost.

    8. Dying will not disqualify a team member, as long as your team wins the duel.

    9. Shooting or casting of any kind into the arena from the spectator
    area is strictly prohibited, and may result in the caster being banned from this and possibly future tournaments (EM's discretion).

    10. All summon and field spells are banned from use in the tournament.

    ALL RULES ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE. Any changes that occur will be posted here.

    How to submit your team
    One of the team members should send an email to me at
    [email protected], listing the following:
    1. the names of each team member
    2. each team member's guild and faction affiliation (if any)
    3. each team member's skill template, including any skills gained from items.

    Teams posted in the Stratics thread will not be considered an entry
    until an email is received. Slots will be allocated in the order that I receive the emails, and when all the slots are filled I'll post it as an update here.

    If everyone behaves then this event will become a regular occurrence.

    Best of luck to all participants!

    Just an update, tournament may proceed as an eight team double elimination instead of a 16 team single elimination, if I get more than 8 teams but less than 16. Sitting at 5 teams so far.

    And only one fighter per player, please.
