- Duel nominations: halberd, longsword, shield-sword, buckler-sword (male and female categories) and “Triathlon” (male and female categories)
- Buhurt nominations: “3×3” (female), “5×5” and “21×21” (male)
Such is the official programme of the event.
HMBIA has strict regulations as to who can be a member of the National team and take part in the “Battle of the Nations”. However, considering that “21×21” is quite a massive category, teams are allowed to include fighters from other countries, who does not have their own teams participating in “21×21”. Alliances are allowed only if they exist under one flag and with one coat of arms. Same rules are applied in the “3×3’ nomination for females.
Also, there are competitions planned in the noncombat nominations:
- Male authentic costume,
– Female authentic costume,
– Authentic armor.
