Participants may not flee to avoid death
Winners recieve a "free walk" to safety
Duels will be watched by an approved official

A player-run dueling league will be held based on the honesty and integrity of the players. Duels will determine the
ratings for each player in the separate categories. Challenges are to be posted on a main duel challenge thread and issued
through a private message. Any player may challenge any player. Guidelines will determine the acceptance and declinement of challenges.
Ratings will be used for player seeding in bi-monthly tournaments, where prizes will be issued.

Challenge Guidelines:
A player with a rating 20 points higher than their challenger may decline at will.
A player may decline any challenge from a player of a higher rating.
All challenges from a players with a rating equal or less than 20 points below must be accepted.
Each player will have a limit of three pending challenges at any time. (three issued challenges and three offered).
Players may participating in the league must respond to the challenges within five days, or accept a mandantory forfeit.^
Players may choose to automatically decline all challengers more than 20 points below or above their rating.
Challenges MUST be sent through a private message AND posted on the challenge thread. If a duel is accepted, both participants
must private message the head duel official to confirm their duel.

Away conditions:
Players may opt to decline all duels if they are unable to play.
Players leaving for personal reasons may submit a notice at least two days in advance.
Players taking a break from the league may go away under the condition that they will not be able to re-enter the league in a week.
Players caught faking a leave of absence under an alias will be penalized.
When away, all challenges will be nullified. No additional challenges may be issued to the away player until he/she returns.
Players who have not logged in for four days will be assumed as "away," if no alias has been seen online.

Duel Procedure:
Once cleared with the head duel official, the participants will be assigned an official.
The players and participants will meet at an agreed location at least 50k from the nearest star system.
Both players must state publicly that they are participating in a duel. Screenshots will be taken by the official and particpants.
Once in starting positions, the players must state that they are ready. The official will take a screenshot and yell, "begin."
Once a duel has begun, any violation of the general rules will result in an immediate invalidation and potential penalty.
If a violation is spotted, the accuser must take a screenshot (official or participant) and the duel is immediately ended.
Both participants and the official are offered a free walk to safety.
When a player dies, the official must capture the screenshot, and the duel is over.
All screenshots from the players are to be sent to the official.
Both players must private message the head official with the duel's outcome.

Official Guidelines:
Officials will be selected on a volunteer basis
Officials may participate in the league
Officials may not oversee their own duels
Screenshots taken are to be forwarded to the head official after each watched duel

so am I to presume correctly that points are gained through wins and lost through losses?
it seems like an interesting idea, I'm hopeful it gains approval and momentum.

oh, I can't really think of any suggestions off the top of my head, it looks pretty solid as is.

one comment though, what will happen if a duelist runs out of ammunition? are they allowed to reload or will they have to make due with what they may or may not have?
