The growth of our unit has created a good problem. The addition of SJ Dashfire61 and SJ AntaresOne has created the opportunity to add a team to the 2v2 tournament. They will be represented as team Anatres Fire. Team Antares Fire will face team Rocky Mountain.


There are no longer any byes. Tournament is now single elimination but with a bronze medal match.


Team Rocky Mountain and Team Pacifica have been shuffled around. Team Rocky Mountain is now SJ Red and SJ Pabst Can. Team Pacifica is now SJ Bayard and SJ Vic Viper V1.


Team Pacifica and Team Somewhere will have one final fight to determine who moves on to the next round. The two teams are tied 1-1.  


Tournament play pickups as the players are available this summer.

SJ Rishingo appeared out of nowhere Sunday on the teamspeak. So we could not pass this opportunity up. SJ Rishingo accepted the call for an entrance trial that was presided over by SJ dueilst. Our customs demand any pilot vying for entry into SJ to fall at least one pilot in three attempts.


SJ Rishingo asked for heavy assets as was his right. SJ Proxema acted as the first opponent and called for combat on TSA Thunderrift. SJ Rishingo chose the Vulture B. SJ Proxema brought a Loki.

SJ Rishingo again called for heavy assets. SJ Dashfire61 chose to battle on TSA Extremity as the second opponent. SJ Rishingo took a Thanny D. SJ Dashfire61 grabbed a Thor.

SJ Rishingo chose to challenge in battle armor for the final match. SJ Bayard called for TC Deepspace as the third opponent. This challenging combination led to two extended battles that ended without a valid result. SJ duelist confined the combat zone to an asteroid.

We are proud to welcome SJ Rishingo (back) to SJ. Your defeat of at least one of our members demonstrates your skills as a warrior. Enjoy the victory and get to know all of the new (and old) members of SJ. But be ever ready for the jaguar never sleeps.

SJ sent two teams to face off with WR Sunday night. The teams met up on TSA Glory with 140 tons, no repeating assets. SJ Bayard and SJ duelist formed the first team. SJ Dashfire61 and SJ Rishingo formed the second team. The WR team consisted of WR Serpentus and WR Burner for both matches. Thanks to all the pilots for playing.
