My understanding of the situation is
- that's not how it was done in period: I've heard it called
"Olympic-style". The period way was either judged (later) or you
all go out into a big ransom melee and whack on each other until
people cry uncle (earlier).
- Olympic-style is extremely popular among SCA fighters because they
want a definite Winner. (There may also be concerns about how much
the observes see and are competent to judge.)
However, I could easily be wrong on these points; I invite anyone with
better information to correct me, as always.
