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.

must private message the head duel official to confirm their duel.
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.
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."

Both participants and the official are offered a free walk to safety.

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?
