New H5 Duel Map Tournament

hello friends

i have decided to organise a new duel map tournament. everyboyd is welcome, so sign up and join the fun. don't let h5 die, it's time to put some life back into this forum.

Like before you pick a faction, level up your hero, learn what spells you may, buy your desired artifacts and duke it out in an epic battle! Difference is heroes are no longer the same, each has his own specialty so you'll have to adapt your strategies. Also you can choose how much of your army to buy which leaves room for extra artifacts.

PREVIEW OF THE DUEL MAP



Bonkers Duel

FEATURES

- Army strength is that of week 7.

- The sphinx gives lvl 21.

- Random artifact system. You may choose one of the three artifact areas, each having 1 relic, 2 major, 3 minor.

- There are no artifact or spell bans.

- Each side has two magic shrines from level 1, 2 and 3, plus an arcane library.

- You may choose non-native hero from the tavern.

- Marketplace is disabled so don't count on getting extra gold by selling resources or artifacts.

- Orcs can learn shatter dark for a fee of 3k gold.

- There is a magic well behind the one way so as to avoid mentor abuses like learning intelligence, visiting well and erasing it. If you want the extra mana you will be forced to keep the skill.


IMPORTANT!!

- There is no more a limit to artificer.

- Haven may not have over 32 paladins.

- Stormwind is no longer modded.




The one way teleporter leads to the arena island, many battlegrounds to choose from. Should you forget to learn spells or set favoured enemies you can town portal back.


BANNED ARTIFACTS

Magic tomes, ring of speed, staff of the netherworld, pendant of mastery, mask of equity, scrolls, unicorn horn bow, skull of Markal, rune of flame, robe and crown of Sar Issus, lion crown, armour of forgotten hero, windstrider boots, cloak of death's shadow, elemental waistband and artifacts that are not useful in the field of battle.

Ring of speed and staff of netherworld.

RACIAL RESTRICTIONS

Racials play a huge role in the game's balance so there are a few limitations in their usage.

Artificer:
Limited resources so that not all units can have lvl 3 arties.

Training:
No more than 32 paladins which means training 10 priests max. Rest can be trained freely.


Runelore:
Fortress's resources reset to 12 wood/ore, 10 crystal/sulfur, 8 for gems/mercury when you enter the one way.

Avenger:
Limited set of favoured enemies for each faction.

Necromancy:
You are allowed to pick three stacks out of the following: 100 skeletons, 60 zombies, 30 ghosts, 12 vampires, 8 liches, 3 Wights, 2 bone dragons. If you refuse the first 4 stacks it automatically picks the remaining ones.
Basic or advanced necromancy gives reduced bonus. Pendant of mastery increases the bonus.




RULES

* Duels will be decided in the best of three so you need (3) wins.

* Deadline for your games is one week. Should the need arise I will grant a few extra days. Failing to finish your games by then means you are out for the round.

* Factions are chosen randomly unless you can reach a mutual agreement.

* We use hamachi version 1.0.1.5, which can be found here.

* No resting in town during turns. Can lead to mentor mana abuses after your hero has maxed his spell points.


Feel free to add your own rules as no mirror or no playing same faction twice.


Those interested in participating post here, the tournament will begin in early August. Hoping to see some new blood along with past year's regulars Remember it's for fun so don't hesitate to join if you are not very experienced.

Map link no longer available. Also I seem to remember that the one with 1 week less armies was a bit more balanced.

@Elvin: I uploaded the map and updated the link. I don't have that map, only Bonkers Duel.

Btw, I only copy-pasted your master-post because it contained all the relevant rules, and you clearly know the game and the map much better  than me. I don't mean to pass it as my own work, if anybody thinks that.

Turns out I can't find my H5 disk anywhere. If you don't hear from me in the next 2-3 days, then feel free to make whatever adjustments you want.

Elvin, I have the following version. It's been a while but I think it was the last version you recommended and used.

TOH Duel 2.1 {lvl 20 cap}
Quote:
A good blend of balance and random fun, may the best tactician prevail in this epic clash of might and magic!

- Haven may not have over 25 paladins.
- Lvl 2 Artificer allowed max.
- Sphinx offers level 19 to offset the free witch hut skills.
- You may not abuse the mentor to gain above maximum mana.

- Artifact merchant system reintroduced!
Special thanks to Fiur, Asheera and Albolabris.


I can upload if someone wants it.

this looks really similar to the  "10week duel" map we play in china and it's still really popular now.

btw, any tournament of this now?
