Does being unbelted make so much difference?

I see no reason for someone who can, in honor, take the Sword Oath, to 
refrain from fighting in Crown due to lack of confidence.  I always know
I'm not going to win Crown.  But I plan to be there in April.  I could
be wrong about this, and I think I'd make a fun king.
