If I may propose a format for the tournament.
All squads to be built according to the Ultra Tournament Rules per the guide.
Ultra Tournament Rules:
Money = 1,200,000
Skill = 2,000
Combat skills can be raised up to 80%, all others to 70%
4 Titans per Squad maximum
All Squad Jocks must fight
All squads are sent the tournament coordinator for approval at which point they can't be changed. When all teams are submitted, they are posted publically. The tournament itself consists of a round-robin qualifying round with the players with the best W/L records playing for the title. If there are enough players, the qualifying round would be limited to 3-5 matches to determine the top 4 seeds for a playoff match. Ties in W/L records are broken in the order most Kills made, least dead jocks suffered, most opposing ATs destroyed or disabled, least destroyed or disabled ATs suffered, and drawn lots.
I don't know if modified or custom ATs should be allowed. I'd like to say yes, but that does allow for a little abuse if you get a hardcore gamist in the mix.
People might want to keep a copy of the final autosave in case a dispute comes up ... but I think everyone can be trusted to honestly report the outcome of matches.
