CHECK LIST BEFORE PLAYING:
1. DISABLE YOUR 3D SHADOWS!
The map will crash on one of the later waves if you fail to do so, due to a game-bug when too many units are being displayed at the same time. This limit will be gone without 3D shadows.
You can pick the "Low" Detail Level preset or follow the steps in the image to disable 3D shadows.

2.
For your own good, remember to turn Gentool's upload mode OFF, and remember not to stream or share ANY information with other teams. If you fail to this other teams can gather info on the map and have an advantage over you.

3. Check info below regarding Rules, FAQ, Map and Wave info.

Rules


Spoiler

- Gameranger or Revora

- Gentool Upload Mode Off, No Streaming, No sharing of information between different teams (which should be of your own interest)

- Should two teams end up with the same amount of attempts, the team that destroyed the final boss quicker will win. The destruction time for the final boss will be recorded frame-perfect

- USA Patriot Turret Force Fire Range Bug will be tolerated, any other glitches or bugs that are intentionally abused will not be tolerated

- You must play on a computer that runs quicker than a bag of potatoes.


Map Info


Spoiler

The map is easily the most complex AOD map ever created, while staying absolutely true to the minimalist nature of AOD maps that every AOD fan loves.

- Classic “defend the line / follow the path” AOD concept with a single road, featuring massive base attacks, ground waves, air waves and bosses

- No important units, buildings or abilities have been disabled (Exception: For balancing reasons GLA is limited to Cash Bounty Level 1)

- 30 Waves, of which 5 are boss waves (see "Wave Info" Spoiler down below)

- Building Space is limited

- Cash Resources are non-existent on the map. No blackmarkets, no supply dropzones. But all factions can build Tank Hackers in their Barracks. Blackmarket Upgrades have been re-located to the GLA Command Center.

FAQ


Spoiler


- Will the map be released after the tournament?
Yes, after the tournament is over, the map will be released normally, without any protections.

- How will you make sure that the map cannot be trained on?
You will not be able to play the map unless Sky or I are present in the game lobby and set the game up for you. Only Sky and I are able to watch the replays. You will not be able to modify the map to remove these protections. Explanation of how this works will not be shared.

- Does the next wave spawn based on a timer or does the next wave spawn after the previous wave has been destroyed?
Both variants exist in the map and are used in a senseful way. You will not be able to abuse this.

- What happens if one of the players crashes or disconnects?
If Sky or I crash / disconnect / leave the game after enabling the map for you, you can just keep playing. In that case one of the players needs to share the replay after the game. We will only enable the map, after all players are successfully loaded into the game. From that point on, the attempt counts. If one of the actual players crashes after that point, the others should keep playing, because the attempt will still be counted.

- Are certain units, superweapons or abilities disabled?
The only ability that is disabled is Level 2 and Level 3 of Cash Bounty for all GLA factions.
There will be no superweapon or unit restrictions.
The XP Gain Rate to level up gen abilities is terrifically low for all factions.

- How are we supposed to know what Generals to play in order to win?
You are not supposed to know. Finding out what army constellation is best should be considered a part of the Tournament.

- Does the map contain a .ini file?
Yes, but it would work without it (no mismatch). SkyMix_RMT created the .ini only to remove Laser Turret Lag. That means there are no modded units or mechanics in the map.

Feel free to ask if there are more questions.


Previous topic for more info.

Good luck generals.

Wow, today was busy!

4 teams have played matches today, it was very interesting to see all the different strategies all teams came up with. The Progress Table was updated in the main topic.
We hope you had fun! Because we definitely did!

Looking forward to see what other strategies the other teams come up with.

I would also say this map is great, I can play AOD but most maps become boring after some time, due to the map not ending even after 1-2 hours have passed or the players not having to do much else because they have enough defences.

This map however, keeps you busy all the way, have to keep thinking of different strategies and everyone has to play their role, it's fast paced which is what I really like.
There are only a few AODs which keep my interest and this is one of them.

A deadline rule has been created:
As soon as the first team beats the map, everyone else will have just 1 month left.
Beat the map fast and give your opponents limited time to beat the map.

Definitely, a grand event, which somehow people can arrange so easily in spite of the team size.

Round 23 is really something, not even team Domi could get there. ohmy.gif
