Proposal: You May Have Already Won

In the rule Winners at War, replace everything between “Once the Bracket has been posted, the following schedule takes effect” and “....and all the Systems in the list exist in their Spare Parts Bin” with the following:

Once the Bracket has been posted, the Announcer should privately resolve all Bouts in the Tournament using the most recent loadout and script of each Bot at that time; they should then make a post summarising the Tournament and announcing the winner.

Giving an option for speedymode resolution - not that I particularly favour it (will lively vote DEF myself) - but happy to have the option considered.

Since this gives no opportunity for Bots to be tuned up after Bouts, the last few Bouts will likely end up a coinflip with this proposal as the participants will be too damaged to function effectively. Worse still, it heavily benefits those who skip more rounds in the tournament (i.e. Brendan and TDS), since their Bots will remain functional for longer.  against
