Summon your might and honor to rise
to the role of Champion upon the battlefield. First, competitors
will face-off in a two 20min half-bearpit round. The victor will
stay in the center during each round, and each successive fighter
vying for points attempts to defeat the person in the center.
Competitors earn points for every victory you win in the center
(with the losing fighter will report to list the name of the person
who won). Double kills are mutually destructive, meaning both
fighters will go back to the line and two new fighters step


After the dust in the pit has settled, the top
two fighters will face-off in a best two out of three– with a
caveat. This final round will need two successive victories before
a winner is declared.
