Create a new rule, titled “Tournaments” with the following text:
Each Breeder may compete in a Tournament. Each Breeder is either Competing or Eliminated, which is tracked in the Tournament column of the GNDT. All Breeders start Eliminated. A Breeder may set themselves to Eliminated at any time. A Breeder may only set themselves to Competing if there are no Competing Breeders, or if another Breeder has become Competing within the last 24 hours.
If there is at least one Competing Breeder and no Breeder has become Competing within the last 24 hours, the Tournament begins! If there are at least two Competing Breeders that are not currently in Battle, any of them may start a Match by first rolling DICEX in the GNDT, where X is the number of Competing Breeders that are not currently in battle, minus one. This roll will pick another Competing Breeder not in a battle, determined by going down through the Current Active Breeders list, skipping any Eliminated Breeders, Breeders in Battle, and the roller.
Example: Suppose arthexis, Bucky, Qapmoc, Rodney, and Xaxyx were all Competing and Bucky and Rodney were dueling each other. If Qapmoc started a match, he would roll DICE2 and if he rolled a 1, he’d fight arthexis. If he rolled a 2, he’s fight Xaxyx.
The Breeder chosen in this way is known as the Opponent.
The Breeder who started the Match must fight the Opponent in one of two ways:
The first is an Official Duel. The Breeder who started the Match may post a Duel with the text “[Official]” in the title and name the Opponent as the Guest. The bet may not be more than 10 Cookies, and it may not be hardcore. If the Guest does not accept this Duel, but they were able to, they are Eliminated.
The alternate method is an unofficial Duel. The Breeder who started the Match may post any sort of Duel as long as the Opponent is the guest, including a hardcore duel. The Opponent has no obligation to accept this Duel, the option is only there for more bloodthirsty Breeders.
Either way, if the Breeder who started the Match and Opponent do Duel, the loser is Eliminated. If the Breeder who started the Match did not choose an Official Duel and they did not otherwise succeed in starting a Duel with the Opponent within 48 hours of the Match starting, the Breeder who started the Match is Eliminated. If a Competing Breeder’s Dragon is Dead at any time, they are automatically Eliminated.
If there is only a single Competing Breeder and the Tournament has begun, they may end the Tournament by adding 100 to their Cookies and Eliminating themselves. Then, any Breeder may become Competing again as above and once 24 hours has passed since any Breeder became Competing, the cycle starts anew.
