Trial of Position Rules


Ranks are achieved in SLP through a Trialof Position.
Rules for a Trial of Position:
To be a valid Trial of Position there must be at least 3 members present; aranking officer of Star Colonel or higher to give the consent of the trail,the person on trial who wishes to advance in rank, and at least one witnessto the trail.
Next step is the bidding process. The trialed must state what is the tonnageof the BattleMech he/she wishes to use in the trail; this will set the startingbid. Members present in the Trial of Position may bid if they are at the rankof Star Commander or higher (But the trialed cannot pass the rank of the trailer).When someone bids to trail, they are bidding on the tonnage of the Mech theywill use against the trailed. They try to bid a lower tonnage than everyoneelse, but bid wisely, and while still making it challenging for the trailedto advance in rank. No bid can fall below 35 tons than the starting bid. Oncethe bidding is done, the lowest bidder gets to choose the map on which the trailwill take place.
Next is the trail. The trial will last 10 minutes. All witnesses to the trailare to select a camera ship. At the end of the game the rank is determined bythe amount of kills.

The amount of kills are needed for the following ranks:

1 = Cadet

3= Mech Warrior

6 = Star Commander

7 = Nova Commander

9 = Star Captain

10 = Nova Captain

12 = Star Colonel

13 = Nova Colonel

15 = Galaxy Commander

16 = Galaxy Colonel

17 = SaKhan

18 = Khan

You may only have a ToP every 30 days if granted by the Khan or Keshik, alsoif you want a ToP talk to the Khan or a member of the Keshik to see if youreligible for one. The Keshik or Khan will decide if you are eligible for a ToPbased upon your display of participation, skills, and leadership needed forthe rank you wish to advance too. You may also only advance one rank at a time.
If you fail to the fact that your ability to do your best was hindered (Likelag (ping of 500+ for the most of the game), or interruption by family member,ether party takes more than 25 seconds to enbter the map after launch.) youmay take your argument to the Khan or Keshik to be reviewed for a redo on yourToP, however stuff like a bad mech setup is not an excuse. Witnesses presentwill verify your argument to the Khan or Keshik.
The Khan and or Keshik holds the right to decline or invalidate the Trial ofPosition; before, during, or after. The Khan or Keshik can also with hold aperson’s right to bid upon a trail.
