This story has more moving parts than a normal entry trial. The path thatonetemplar, or Templar, took to SJ was longer than most. Templar comes from Wolfs Dragoons, which began to check out MWLL this past winter. Soon Templar was seemingly the only member left playing the game from that group. So his search began for a new unit. SJ was offering a trial from the beginning. But I made sure he would have all the choices to make a solid decision. A call was made to all active units to make their pitch on membership. The choice became between Clan Sea Fox (CSF) and SJ. I then made a Trial of Refusal on behalf of SJ to CSF Khan Ressk: https://youtu.be/HZO6M_QDQcA . I won the battle which opened the road to Templar taking an entry trial for SJ. I then left the decision to Templar to join CSF or SJ.

A warrior that wishes to enter SJ is granted recruit status. Warriors receive training alongside SJ until they feel ready for an entrance trial. A recruit is matched against three existing members in succession. The recruit takes assault class unless they wish to utilize a lower class. Then the final opponent is heavy class. The default opposition is light class, medium class, and assault class. The map is chosen by the first opponent. The recruit does not repair or reload ammo. The trial is a success if the recruit defeats at least the light class. Further victories increase the rank of the incoming member. The recruit rebuilds the asset and plays all three rounds even if they are defeated. A recruit may attempt an entry trial once per week until passing the test.

Hot off the presses! Word has gotten out that ~SJ~ Rask666 challenged [C-C] Helo to a trial. SJ duelist is said to have overseen the trial. Anonymous source leaked this video of the fight:

Mitigator came to play in the league this weekend. He requested entrance into SJ. The officers present granted this request. Mitigator was to defeat at least one existing SJ member to become a full member. Otherwise he was to remain a recruit until passing the trial. He requested to trial specifically to enter as a tank specialist. This request was granted alongside a regular mech entrance trial.

Our entrance trial now lets the challenger pilot any weight class. The pilot faces three opponents in light, medium, and heavy or assault class. The challenger must defeat the light pilot to gain entrance. There is no repair or ammo refill for the challenger. Defeat of the other opponents grants a higher starting rank. Challenger chooses weight class and map. Medium and heavy or assault class assets are announced before the battles begin. The challenger plays all three rounds as practice if they are defeated.

Mitigator chose to challenge in medium class. His opponents were SJ Carbonel in lights class, SJ duelist in medium class, and SJ Rookzero in heavy class. The map was TC Dune.
