Meh. I don't think there would be much skill in a 1 on 1 "bat'leth only" fight. You'd have two players sitting at keyboards basically mashing "1", "2" and "3" and that would largely be the extent of available strategy and tactics.
A better tournament would be 3v3, 4v4 or 5v5 team play with full use of kits and captain abilities, but where the only weapon you can use is the bat'leth.
Then you have real skill coming into play -- teamwork, heals, holds, snares, buffs, debuffs, etc. Much of what makes ground combat interesting and skillful is teamwork and kit usage, not weapon selection.
