ULTIMATE HOMM/MM COMPETITION

ULTIMATE HOMM/MM COMPETITION

RESULTS ARE IN!
WE HAVE THREE WINNERS!!!
CONGRATULATIONS!


FINAL SCOREBOARD
_______________________________________________________



BROADSTRONG - 100/100
ANGELITO - 100/100
ZAMFIR - 100/100




_______________________________________________________
What is this all about?
We are going to compete in gaming experience. The format and the questions are not going to be of a boring exam type, rather more creative.
What games can I compete in:
You can choose one or two of the following games:
Might and Magic VI: The Mandate of Heaven
Might and Magic VII: For Blood and Honor
Might and Magic VIII: Day of the Destroyer
Heroes of Might and Magic III
Heroes of Might and Magic IV
Heroes of Might and Magic V + Hammers of Faith Expansion
Heroes of Might and Magic V: Tribes of the East

I want to compete in one game
OK, here is what you do: Scroll down and find the Question Pool for your game. Either choose to write an E-mail message to me with your answers (the answers must be numerated: 1, 2, 3, ...) or write a PM to me via the HCM. DO NOT POST THE ANSWERS IN THIS TOPIC!. Wait till I announce the end of the competition and you'll see the results. There is probably going to be a round 2.

I want to compete in two games
OK, here is what you do: Scroll down and find the two Question Pools for your games. Open HCM (if you want to PM me) or your E-mail program (if you want to Email me). Of course, you are writing the answers to me (Vidoja). You must first write down your username. Than, write the names of the two games you are competing in. Write an A next to one and a B next to the other. After that, look for the first question of the game A and the first question of the game B. Which one is easier? You decide, write 1(A/B) in accordance to the games you marked and write the answer next to it. Do so for every question on. So, you are choosing between the Xth question of game A and Xth question of game B. Do not mix the numbers of questions!
When you finish it should look like this:
Quote:

Username: jskfjkla
Might and Magic VI - A
Might and Magic VIII - B
1A - ajsdkl;ajslkdfjkas;dflkjaskdfl;
2A - akjk;safkljaskdlf;alskdjfk;alsk
3B - ajksdl;ajklsjdfkas;flkjdfhasjdk
4A - ajskld;aslkdfjasjkfhjsfkhajkdfl
5B - aksl;lskajfklsa;flksjafhjkaslkd
6B - ajksld;alskdjhgjksldkjfhasjkdlf
....


(this is only a sample)

If you want to give me a QP, give anti one also. I do not want to receive it alone.

@Ash

Probably those that have seen this thread decided to solve them later, and they forgot about it.

Speaking of which, did Zamfir and Dagoth send their answers?

I must say that I think the M&M questions are more interesting than HOMM questions. Pity, antipaladin you couldn't participate. There are no people currently that have answered any of the M&M questions. But, than again, people aren't that bad at HOMM either. Currently, no one scored under 80/100, so I think that I am going to look at every single detail
