The last 2 invitations are being given to representatives from Hydra Corporations’ Fighters Evolved program.

(( limit one player per character.))

Invitation acceptance deadline: Monday August 24th, by Midnight (PST)

Sport Specifics.
Each duel will integrate all three combat sports by changing the dueling style every 4th round until a victor emerges. (( OOC: Each duelist will be limited to 4 modifiers, only 3 can be used as Foci in the magic rounds ))

e.g. Matt vs Lilith . Duel 1, Round 1, Swords. Round 2, Swords. Round 3, Swords. Round 4, Style switch to Fists. Round 5, Fist. Round 6, Fist. Round 7, Fist. Round 8 Switch to Magic. Round 9, Magic. Round 10, Magic. Round 11, Magic. Round 12, Sword starts again. Round 13, Swords. Round 14, Swords. Round 15, Swords.

If by 15 rounds a duelist is not leading by 1 full point the duel will continue until a victor secures a full point lead.

Duel of Fists advantages that do not score a full point will convert successful defenses before and after them. ((A modified defense, using Foci or Fancy do not get the conversion when following a DoF Advantage))

e.g. Round 3: Lilith cuts into Matt’s low parry 0-.5 Matt
Round 4: (Switch to DoF) Lilith tries a follow up jab...Matt’s long gone! (Jab/Dodge) 1-0 Matt.

e.g. Round 7: Lilith blocks Matt’s jumpkick for the advantage. (AB/Jk) 3 - 2+ Matt.
Round 8. Lilith isn’t done there, her shield puts a monkey wrench in Matt’s Fear touch (Sh/FT) 3-3

Round 1 Duels will run Swords, Fists, Magic.
Round 2 Duels will start with Fists, Magic, Swords.
Finals will begin with Magic, Swords. Fists.


Prizes:
Winner: 10,000 Silver Nobels and offer of contract to be a Fighters Evolved member
2nd Place: 5,000 Silver Nobels and Hydra Cup Swag dufflebag.

Sports Drinks, Vitamin Water, and other refreshments will be provided. Public is welcome to attend.

Few things.

With 10 duelers, you're going to have a fourth round. 10/5/3/2/1. Who gets the two byes, and what's the format for the extra round?

Also, does the last move used of a sport carry over once you rotate back to that sport.

e.g. Round 3. Lilith cut into Matt's low parry, when round 12 rolls back to fist, can Matt CP and Lilith LC or not?

It was decided from the beginning that 6 of the 10 combatants would receive a round 1 bye. The 2nd invitations extended to Chemical Burn and Team Fist will face off against the Fighters Evolved combatants. The two leading teams get first shot at the company fighters, our guests fight all the way up from the bottom. and those who get the bye can see what the Fighters Evolved folks can do. The remaining 8 fighters will continue on as normal, on even footing.

So the tournament will be 4 (6 bye) /8/4/2/1.

The format of the final round remains the same.

And yes, if a duel cycles all the way back to the style it started as they can pick up where they left off.

((Since I see it was overlooked in the original announcement, Magic duels are restricted to the basic open matrix. Mage Spells and Elemental Furies are not allowed.

Edited to change Rock Hards to Team Fist. The 2 additional invites to First and 2nd place teams was supposed to be Hydra Cup 2015 Champions and 2nd place team. My supreme apologies. ))
