Tournament Description from His Majesty:
Invocation and challenges will remain the same, and the list will be run as a standard double elimination tournament, with standard West Kingdom armor conventions.
The big difference will be that fights shall be to counted blows, no acted-out wounds. What this means;
• All fights are to 3 good blows struck
• Fighters still call their own blows
• ALL TARGETS COUNT THE SAME, a hit to an arm, leg, head or body counts as one good blow.
• There will be a pause when a good blow is struck, to allow fighters to reset. This way, people who drop an arm/leg out of reflex are not penalized
• If a flurry is landed, only the first blow counts, as a pause is enacted after a good blow.
• Double strikes count against both fighters. If you trade a leg for a head, both fighters earn one point.
• Double kills are destructive. If there is a 2-2 score, and a double hit occurs, both fighters take a loss on their record. This will only change in finals, where a double kill will be re-fought. Finals will still be a best of three fights.
• Although no one “dies” in a counted blows tournament, We are asking fighters to take a knee and salute, so that bystanders can understand the outcome of a fight.
