Charter Rule V.G

Monday, February 23rd, 2015

Minor charter update based on voter feedback in our forums:

Rule V.G was appended with an extra condition (“…and who have not appeared in the 2014 Preliminary Period or any seasonal tournament in 2014”) to clarify eligibility for the winter seasonal tournament.

The full rule now reads:

G. An additional form for the Winter Seasonal Tournament, an exhibition tournament, will be available during the Nomination Period. This form accepts female characters (per rule V.B.2) with appearances on and after 1 January 2015 and who have not appeared in the 2014 Preliminary Period or any seasonal tournament in 2014.

Charter update

Thursday, February 19th, 2015

We have updated some statements in the ISML 2015 Charter. This amendment is noted at the very end of the Charter.

Rule III.D has been removed, which had allowed previous Lapis Scepter winners to participate in Regular Season. These characters will participate in a different event, described below.

The wording of Rule VIII.H has been updated, because the Seeding Score is now used for a second purpose, which is to determine eligibility and winners for the special match described below.

Rule VIII.J has been inserted (shifting subsequent rules down one letter), describing the process to award the Sapphire Crown and Diamond Crown.

J. Special awards will be given to two male Contestants at the end of the Regular Season.
1. The male Contestant with the highest Seeding Score will be awarded the Sapphire Crown.
2. A special match will occur alongside the Topaz Pendant Showdown. It will feature 7 male Contestants subject to the following eligibility:
a) Previous Lapis Scepter winners who have not yet obtained a Diamond Crown.
b) Contestants with the highest Seeding Score who have not obtained a Pendant or Crown this year and who are not in the Topaz Pendant Showdown.

Charter for ISML 2015

Thursday, February 5th, 2015

The ISML 2015 Charter is now available. Please read over the updated rules and procedures for the year. We are introducing male characters into their own division and have a new preliminary period.

Nominations are still on March 1 with the Preliminary Period to start in mid-April. The exact date is tentative, as we are still planning around staff availability. A calender graphic will be created once dates are more set in stone.

Thanks for your patience, and we hope you will look forward to this upcoming new tournament year!
