Rank 3 relinquished his rank, so all rankers below him move up by 1 and he's been moved to unranked. This also invalidates Rank 3's challenge against Rank 2.

Added and approved Ruuku and Mari.

Added ranks 7, 8, 9, and 10. Rank 3 challenged by Rank 4. 

 

Also, since we have 10 rankers now, the top 20% encompasses both Ranks 1 and 2, so they can only be challenged in sequence. If there is a group challenge, all that matters is that the challenging group contains the player eligible to challenge them. (So Rank 3+5 can challenge 2+4, but not 1+2, since neither rank 3 or 5 are eligible to challenge rank 1).

You need to be rank 2 for that.. So challenge rank 3, beat em, then rank 2, beat em. Then you can challenge #1.

Both Diss and Switchback need to give me both pilot and AC name, not just PSN.

On a side note, make sure you guys look over the rules rather than just jumping in.Here's a few highlight points from the rules that you should know, which might differ from what you're used to with most tournaments:

 

1. Matches are won via 2 consecutive wins, not best 2 out of 3, and timeouts do not count. You are allowed to change anything on your build between matches, and even take breaks between them (as long as you don't go past the 14 day deadline).

 

2. Defending rank chooses the map and conditions. 

 

3. Challenges are only valid if you alert both myself, and the player you're challenging somehow. Posting in the thread counts as both, or you could send out PMs or PSN messages to each of us. 

 

Be familiar with the rules because there's a zero-tolerance policy with a lot of this stuff, ignore it and your challenges are voided, or you could lose your rank entirely. No immaturity here, keep your bullshit to yourself. 

 

 

I'm going to use the latest challenge to walk through the process once more:

 

Once posted/notified to me, I have added the challenge information for ranks 6 and 9.

 

Rank 6 has to now respond (by posting here, or notifying by me and Rank 9 via message) that they accept. If they do not accept within 14 days, they lose by default.

 

f they DO accept, they then have 2 weeks to actually fight. If they don't determine a winner in that time, then the challenge is voided, meaning nothing happens.

 

If they fight and Rank 6 wins, then Rank 6 gets a grace period of another 2 weeks where they are allowed to decline challenges.

 

If they fight and Rank 9 wins, then Rank 6 and 9 swap positions and the new Rank 6 (previously rank 9) gets a 2 week grace period where they are allowed to decline challenges.

Shouldn't if they loose just drop down one position? Because what if there are 14 ranked people and rank 14 is a great player but new to the arena and he challenges rank 3 and wins. The previous rank 3 is now rank 14 even if he spent weeks challenging and beating the other ranks

Added Switch and South Q.
 
There's quite a few problems with having rankers only drop 1 rank, but it basically comes down to the fact that it punishes every other player between the two rankers (some of which might be better than both of them) by forcing them to drop a rank too, and that it would take forever for that player to finally reach a rank that reflected his skill level, all the while he would be exploited by players below him to rise higher than they normally might be able to. It would turn into a game of "who can challenge the shitty ranker first". 
 
Theoretically, if rank 14 joins and is really good and swaps with Rank 3, the new Rank 14 can just turn around and challenge Rank 4 and should be able to win easily. However, if the old Rank 3 isn't as good as say, ranks 4-6, then he'll have to choose the highest rank he can possibly win against.

It's the "what's the fastest way to queue people before they board an airplane?" problem. Let people choose their own seats and they'll sort themselves out rather than holding up the line moving people back and forth.
 
So if you're worried about dropping from Rank 2 to Rank 10, swapping is a lot less stressful than having to spend 4 months getting stomped on because everyone targets you until you finally hit rank 10, and rankers 3-9 pretty much are ignored the entire time.
 
When more challenges are issued and no players are sitting there without having fought for their rank, then I might revise the rules, but let's give this a try for now.

EDIT: Also, technically these new rankers need to be vetted for competence, but I've fought pretty much everyone here (or know them to be skilled, if I haven't) over the last few years, so no vetting is necessary.
