Edited by SAG at 13:43, 17 Nov 2008.

ANNOUNCEMENT 17 November 2008 :
We added new page "Best games". There you can download games of best players and learn from them.

How to submit your saves to WCL (Best games page)?

1) we will upload only games where high-ranked WCL players participated
2) both SOD (Shadow of Death) and TE (Tournament Edition 1.03q) versions are accepted
3) please mention:
- names of players
- starting towns for both players
- main heroes
- winner
- game version
4) games should be sent to randommaps[at]yandex.ru
5) all games must be packed only by 7zip www.7-zip.org. Follow instruction below:

How to pack games using 7zip?
1) original saves are already packed by HOMM3 internal archiver. You will have to unpack them first, using 7zip. Download 7zip and install it.
2) run 7zip, select saves and press Extract button
3) unpacked saves come without extention, so you will have to rename all of them into .gm2. You can do it easily with FAR file manager http://farmanager.com/?l=en
4) [renaming saves] when you installed FAR, select saves by "+" button, then press F6 button and enter *.gm2
5) now all your saves are unpacked and renamed to *.gm2. Next step is to pack them with 7zip
6) run 7zip, select saves and press ADD button. Important! Check"Compress shared files" option. Enter filename and press OK button.

This will allow to pack games into 300kb archives instead of normal 10mb.

Criterium "best ranked players only" should be left out. WCL ranking isn't (entirely) real anyway (e.g. you wouldn't allow Maretti to post something for he's not "among the best"? ); if someone wants to post his saves let him do it, but you should make it mandatory that they make a detailed description of their game and what is so interesting about it. Otherwise you just have a list of games that tells very little, as far as I see it.

Maretti is always welcome other players too, however I don't promise that I will have time to check saves of unknown players

I know

I don't think you should check every save, that is a waste of time.  
But you should insist on the description. It's not that hard to write a few lines of text, and if the game is really good it deserves it, and, as I said, makes thing much clearer and easier to follow. Also, players should not include only autosaver saves but also the save just prior to main fight.

players deside rules before game,usually its just standard,but no h&r is a very good rule,same as no double build and others that may unbalance real chances of winning.

Default rules apply in most games, though not in every. Players decide about which set of rules they use.

You can find here on Heroescommunity hundreds of posts regarding H'n'r - what is fair and what is not? Most novice players play without this rule (actually many novice players play without any rules). However skilled players prefer to play with "no h'n'r" rule. Why? Play a few games without this rule vs high-ranked player and you will see how powerful, frustrating and disbalanced is h'n'r tactic...

Hi

I have been playing Heroes 3 with my friends for some time now but we have no online expiriance. We joined heroes 3 world leauge but there are so many rules!!!
I have read the rules on the world leauge site and i donīt get it. In those default rules you say there is no Necro but when i go on stats i see that someone had played with Necro or even Confux. It is also writen there is no building in two same Castles??
So i wonder are those rules fore every type of game or there are diferrent rules for different types of maps?
Could someone write some basic rules here?

When you see Necro or Conflux towns in WCL statistics - that games were mostly played on new version of HoMM3 TE (Tournament Edition). It's more balanced than old HoMM3 SOD (Shadow of Death/Complete) so it's allowed to use both Necro and Conflux on TE.

Ok thanks but what about those other rules?
You cant build in 2 same castles, so here you actually have an advantage when you get a cstle you dont have?
Those rules i read on the WCL, you use them allways or are there some exceptions?

u can play any rules u want in WCL, however most people play with those rules that are called "default WCL rules". If u have 2 same type towns and opponent has 2 different types, then u still have advantage because u can buy those level 1-2 troops from second town. Most often random maps XL or L size are finished on week 3 or even on week 2, so you don't have much money/resource to build up second town

Sag,

I'm interested in registering for WCL, I'm going to do a little more research first (Check out rules and such.)
I have a quick question from your last post..

What kind of crazy DD casting heroes do people start with to be able to finish an XL map on week 3??? My apologies if I misunderstood your quote, I'm just trying to get some perspective on the type, and quality of the players I would be matching up against.

Well, some of them are very skilled players who have never cast a DD in an online game.

Of course, there are other players that typically finish an XL map in 2-3 months.

Players of type A normally do not play with players of type B and vice versa.

And you believed that?

Fank,

Who is type A, and who is B??

A) a great player that finishes XL in 3 WEEKS without DD?
B) a player that takes 3 months to finish XL?

I'm sorry man I just don't understand what you are trying to say.
IMHO noone can defeat an XL map in 3 weeks.
