Ok, I'll post there today!
fixed map:

Pei vs DagothGares
Blizzardboy vs Elvin
Arcax vs SKPRIMUS
Larry vs Vangelis
Azagal vs Mohikanin
Veco vs StormGiant


rules note:
Using native joiners results in 0 points. Seriously, a double growth on nightmares is unreal.
Sieges and sea battles do not affect your score.

The deadline is 14.02, I think that exams are over now.

Actually my exams are on the 10th and 12th.

Nevermind that though. And well... the siege/sea battles not giving extra points is a bit weird if you ask me since they're significantly different from a normal duel. Looks like I traumatized you pretty good with my überpony stack.

If they were to give extra points AND be relatively fair, I'd have to release a book on what occasions and who will get them.
points only for might heroes?
only if you don't have the advantage in shooters/fliers?
If 2 magic or 2 might heroes meet, who'll get the bonus?
And with mixed heroes and armies you get a LOT of possibilities.
It's better to have no scoring system rather than a rushed one.

i just had my duels with larry:

1) i won that one. i used war machines with sylvan, used non native creeps. so i guess this means = 4 points?

2) i lost this one. i used non native creeps and logistics with academy. so i guess this means = 2 points?

3) i lost this one. i used non native creeps. so this means 1 point?

total of 7 points?

The scoring system is quite delicate in this tourney so Replays will be of the essence in order to determine whether you build was "Bonkalicious" enough. About the WM with Sylvan
Quote:
+1 if the hero build is unusual (includes skills rarely picked e.g. Warmachine-Necro, not rarely appearing like Defense-Warlock)

it depends how you used the WM. I guess you coupled them with Destructive magic boosting your SP with druids and went for imbued tripple Ballista? That for example wouldn't be very bonkers because it's a pretty standard build except that you not only have imbued rain but also a überballista. Or did you do it differently? And what heroes did you use with what army?

The same would go for Logistics with Academy. Unless you went for Artifical Glory/March of the golems instead of Swift Mind. Which was it?

well that point system is really messed up

i think u should make it more clear,meaning what skill is considered rare by which hero,since that part is really confusing,also is having basic skill meaning something or advanced just for the cause of having a rare skill

games went as Vangelis said

1st i had Klaus leading necro army and that would be about it ,guessing enlight doesn't count
2nd i had orc hero/army with 1 non native and shatter light if that is considered for anything
3d got a perfect setup with drwaven army ,Sorgal(Dungeon) as hero and high druids as joiners,also got luck(with warlocks luck)

The scoring system isn't so complicated. All you have to do is be not-standard. Every heroclass has it's strengths and the sense of this Tournament is to not (entirely) play to those strengths but to find something different to make it work. It's like veco said with
Quote:
(includes skills rarely picked e.g. Warmachine-Necro, not rarely appearing like Defense-Warlock)

If you pick Defense with a Warlock and couple that with Destrution Magic you're playing to those strengths and you're not adding anything "new". But look at a Wizard for example how often to you see one with WM or even Remote Controle? I've never seen one before. Or a Demon Lord Counterspell/Destructive magic build. These builds are something "fresh". Enlightenment will play to the strength of any faction so it's nothing too special.
All you have to do to score in that department is not have a standard build (this is standard: Knight with Light, Attack, Defense, Enlightenment and Luck). Of course that doesn't mean you should pick WM with Necro just so that you can say I got WM it's about making a build that makes sense but is different. That's what the huts are for.

Sure this is different from the other cups but the rules were clear before people signed up.

EDIT: Thus it's pretty difficult to have an "non-standard" build with very versatile factions like Academy or a very unversatile faction like Stronghold.

EDIT: So got any replays?
