SCINCE 01/02/2011 ELITE TRIALS NO LONGER EXISTS. INSTEAD TO GET ELITE RANK MEMBER MUST GET MASTERY IN ALL WEAPONS (SEE Ranks).
The Elite Trials are special and very hard tests that need to be passed by the Masters applying for elite ranks.
They test the candidates ability of fighting with, and against, all 3 weapons: single, staff and dual sabers.
The rules of the Trial
To begin the Trials the member must have, at least, Jedi Master/Sith Lord rank.
1.When a member wants to start the Trials he should inform a Council member, which will post an apropriate topic in the admin forum section.
2.The Member will be tested in dueling single vs single, staff vs staff and duals vs duals. Additionally each Council member will be able to test him on his own rules(for example: dueling single vs staff or duals vs single etc.).
3.The Member will not be informed about his progress. Councilors will post their trial duels results and opinions about the tested Member and discuss it.
4.When trials are finished the Member will be informed if he has passed.
5.Trials can be re-taken after 1.5 month. The nearest date of taking the Trials will be shown on the Rosters in the promotions section on the forum because Elite ranks are the only ranks above JM/SL(despite JGM/SDL that are given by the Councill so there is no “next promo date”).
