Titans of Winter Tournament 2022

From HollowWiki

Titans of Winter

It is the 10th annual Titans of Winter tournament! While the opening ceremony and final matches will still be held within the borders of Frostmaw, this year the battles will be held all across Lithrydel. The locations will be announced as the matches are determined.

Try your hand in combat to see if you can claim the coveted championship title and become the next reigning Titan of Winter. Ever true to the laws of the unforgiving tundra, the kingdom of ice and snow promises glory for the mighty and ignominy for the vanquished, so be forewarned!

Rules and Details

  • Registration is open until December 31, and the first brackets will be announced by January 7th.
  • No entry fee required.
  • The duel dates and times will be announced days prior to allow duelists and watchers to prepare. Any scheduling issues need to be sorted before the day of the duel, and no-shows will be disqualified while a possible Back-up Entrant takes their place.
  • Duels will be the traditional 3 rounds and final defense, with either 15 or 20 minute rounds as agreed by duelists. (20 is default this year.)
  • All duels will be posted on the Wiki, please record and send your duels to Meri if s/he is not present for it.
  • Duelists will be required to find their judges either well before or on time for the duel, so once you have agreed a date with your partner, it is advised that you begin to search for judges. NB, it is important that you and your opponent agree on judges. If you cannot agree on your judges, please inform Meri/Kasyr ASAP. If none are available that you can agree on, it is suggested to begin the duel, record all posting times, and send it to judges afterward. Duelists may not judge other duels in the tournament until they have been defeated; at which time, they are permitted to operate as judges only in subsequent duels which do not feature the opponent whom they were defeated against.
  • Duelists are allowed to add further stakes to their duels if they so desire. If no additional stakes are agreed upon, 'auto-hit round to the winner' is the only additional aspect apart from the loser's elimination from the tournament.
  • Guests may organize betting pools if they so desire.
  • RP from and within the audience is permitted and encouraged! It goes without saying, of course, that the audience should not interact with the duelists for the sake of fairness.
