Subj: 1v1 Bracket

The 1v1 bracket matches have been set up. This is a double-elimination bracket, which means you must lose twice before you are knocked out of the bracket.

The system automatically handles advancing you once your current match has been declared to be a win or a loss. You can use the command TOURNAMENT MATCH to view your current opponent. You and your opponent can decide the victor of your match in any way. You can choose to fight it out, you can choose to flip a coin, or you can choose to forfeit your match. Whatever you do, you must agree beforehand with your opponent what method you will use to determine the winner. If you cannot agree, then you will fight in a single winner-takes-all arena match.

When you agree on a method, stick to it! Don't let your vanquished opponent convince you that best out of three is a good idea after the fact. That never ends well.

If you are the winner, you must do TOURNAMENT RECORD WIN. If you are the loser, you must do TOURNAMENT RECORD LOSS. Please record all match results promptly. If I find you to be dragging your heels because you're sullen about your loss, I will have no problem with permanently ejecting you from the entire Tournament of Ages.

You will have 24 hours from the item your match was assigned to you to get in touch with your opponent and decide the victor of your match. If you need a time extension, please let me know. If I don't hear from you and your match is unresolved after 24 hours, I will choose the winner. Trust me... You don't want me to choose the winner. I will base my decision based on how much time you spend online on average, how active I think you were in trying to decide your match, and how much I like you. It will not be fair. Nobody wants that. Just find a time to fight your opponent.

The 24-hour countdown for your matches begins now.

In summary, useful commands:
