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.
