Announcing: Gladiator Arena

GLADIATOR ARENA
OPEN (JOIN AT ANY TIME!)

Are you tired of being a peasant? Do you have enough of ppl looking down on you?
Do you want men to envy you and ladies to cheer you on?

Then become a GLADIATOR and show the world your bravery and fighting spirit in the arena!

Take your shot at becoming a champion and earn yourself (nearly) eternal glory!


-- Basic Idea --

The goal is to become the champion by having the longest win-streak out of all Gladiators!
You can join or leave the arena at any time - no commitment, no pressure


RULES

-- set up --

Every gladiator(participant) will be ranked by the length of their >current< winning-streak. A gladiator can challenge any other gladiator that is his "neighbour" (one lvl above, below or same lvl)
in the ranking-list.
A challenge can be declined, unless you are the current champion (highest win-streak), in which case you have to accept every challenge, unless you already have a match going on.


Once a gladiator has found himself an opponent, he contacs me (Frogo) on Discord and I will set everything up with the both of you.

The lower ranked gladiator chooses a map from the map-pool (random if same lvl gladiators).
The lower ranked gladiator chooses his colour, unless the map has an auction, see map-pool. (position is random for same lvl gladiators, unless auction).
Both choose their hero hidden from each other.
In case they both chose the same hero, this hero gets dismissed and both choose again.
You can never repeat a hero that you ve already played in your current win-streak.


Game version:

Every game will be played on the newest version of H5.5.
currently rc12b:
Download: https://www.moddb.com/mods/might-magic-heroes-55/downloads/might-magic-heroes-55-rc12b
guide: https://www.facebook.com/notes/might-magic-heroes-55/installation-and-upgrade-guide/1100405733403622/

MMH55_64.exe is the .exe that will be used for the games.

lan setup:
The games will be played via Gameranger.
https://www.facebook.com/notes/might-magic-heroes-55/how-to-setup-a-multiplayer-game-with-gameranger/990153101095553


settings:

ghost mode: no
quick combat: no
autosafes: yes
simultanous turns: yes
difficulity: impossible (unless both agree on a diffrent difficulity or the map states a diffrent default difficulity, see map-pool)
animation speed: 5
dynamic battles: off
6 Skills (or 8, if both agree)

-- in-game rules --

reloads:
Reloads can be bought for (500+days_passed*50)*reloads_taken gold.
The gold is sent to your enemy on the same day the reload is taken.
If multiple reloads are taken in a single turn,
obviously you also need to pay for the previous reloads again.


Example:

First reload is always free, because reloads_taken = 0.
A third reload at day 24 would cost:
(500+23*50)*2= 3.3k gold

A reload can not be used to change player interactions.
Any player interactions will be redone exactly as before.
This also applies to actions where there is no fight,
but one player effected the other anyway.
An example would be grabbing an artifact or a creep faste than the
opposing player. The same player gets the artifact/creep again.


-- disconnects --

After a disconnect, the last safe will be loaded.
I see this can be abused to cheat your way to free reloads - please just dont, we are all here to have a fun time.
As for reloads, a disconnect can never change player interactions.


-- draw --

Have never seen one happen, but in case you guys manage it:
There are no draws.
If the game is not decided within 3 months,
a neutral ground equally reachable for both players is agreed upon (if you can't agree, i ll decide).
A final deciding fight will happen at the beginning of day 1, week 2, month 4 (no more reinforcements on that day).


-- Map pool --

Let's Fight

A small map with a rich center.
Simular starting positions.
2 towns.
Mapfile at discord. (check the pinned messages in #tournaments)


DeadlyEnvironment

Slighty bigger than Let's Fight with a more "lategame-like" final fight.
Rich underground.
Creeps can be heavy, choose your battles.
Mirrored starting positions.
3 towns.
Mapfile at discord. (check the pinned messages in #tournaments)

JebusArena

ARMG(but fixed) map using the following parameters:

jebus template
Large
No ug/water
very strong monsters
little ressources
Exp: 4

This map will have heroic as its default difficulity and will have an auction to determine who chooses the starting positons.

Note: The mappool is small by choice. This is to make preparation easier for people not knowing the maps.
A third map may be added soon. Given the amount of work currently put into the ARMG by the H5.5 team,
it will most likey be a ARMG map.

H5.5 discord server (check tournaments thread):

https://discordapp.com/invite/G7jadyp  


I have not added any timelines for turns or games overall.
In case this gets abused, i will do so, but i hope we can manage it without that



How do you sign up?
Just write so here

And when does it start??
As not much is needed to get this going - any time soon


Hall of Fame:
(this is where we remember our champions and their glorious streaks)


Good luck, fellow peasants

aaand i ll also sign myself up, obviously


Also, right before the arena opens, some minor changes will be made:

Now the challenger will choose the map!
Why wasnt this the way from the start? - because i feared people would only play the map they know, never looking at diffrent maps.
How will this be prevented now?
As a challenger, you can not choose the same map twice in a row.

Also, this change allows us to widen the map-pool slightly,
as a challenger doesnt have to prepare all maps at once

With that said, a new map enters the mappool:

JebusArena (mapfile at discord)

The JebusArena is a (slightly tweaked) armg map using the jebus template.

parameters:

jebus template
Large
No ug/water
very strong monsters
little ressources
Exp: 4


This map will have heroic as its default difficulity setting.
Also, given the diffrent starting location, this map will have an auction to determine who decides on who gets which colour.

Yes, that is exactly how it works, so there is no problem when you realize you dont have time when your match starts

Also, you dont need to have time on a specific date - its okay if you guys take a week or so to finish your match

Some days you win and some days you lose. Today our champion leaves the arena defeated, but not broken! He will return with a new plan to again reach the top!
Every end is also a beginning and so a new champion rises:

frogo(Lucretia) defeats Bulya(Gorshak) on DeadlyEnvironment



Hall of Fame:
Bulya  [streak: 2]
frogo  [streak: 1 (ongoing)]


The next matchup will be:

Bandaro(Duncan) vs Frogo(Ossir) on JebusArena

The stay at the top was barely long enough to take a deep breath of the fresh air up there. As quickly as he rises, he falls.

But Glory doesnt just disappear, it gets transferred to the new champion:

Bandaro (Duncan) defeats frogo (ossir) on JebusArena



[next match details will follow]

I am keeping a close eye on this.

By any chance, would it be possible to get some replays from these matches?

On the last match by the end i was ahead of Frogo, so the last fight wasn't as interesting as some of the fights against creeps. Unfortunately, I did take rather boring skillset which was all around stunning strike and slowing my enemy with priests so he never moves. (it's op imo)
I will make sure to remember to save some of the interesting battles in the future, whether final fights or some breaks/banks
