Usages of a bloodname:
A named warrior should refer to themselves using their bloodname in trialsand matches. (e.g. “I Johnny#5 Kerenksy challenge you Boomster to aCircle of Equals.”) Also in trials and matches others are to refer toa named warrior using their bloodname. (e.g. “I Boomster accept yourchallenge Johnny#5 Kerensky.”) A named warrior also is given authorityover those in his/her own rank without a bloodname.
However usage of the bloodname is often dropped in “Fast-Pace” mode.
