An "Ironman" (or "Iron Man") tournament consists of one or more rings where the winner fights successive challengers that come from one or more queues. The winner may be determined by the longest kill streak or overall number of kills. Ironman tournaments are generally timed, but may also run until a player reaches a specified streak or number of kills. Wounds may or may not carry over between matches based on the traditions of the region and the preference of the tournament organizer.
Ironman tournaments are generally not eligible for streak Orders of the Warrior beyond six due to the lack of bracketing and ever-increasing difficulty presented by bracketing.
