It would seem that's not the case. Makes sense to me, I can't see any reason why they would only use it in tourneys and not on combat armour, it would be just as useful in battle as in a joust. Also, I imagine that only the extremely wealthy would have separate sets of armour for tourneys and battle, less wealthy knights probably only had the one set because armour was ridiculously expensive.I thought the lance rest on armor was only used for jousting in tournies, not combat armor.
