Hidden Zone Cup (1vs1)

Post by SAMEDO23 »

Hidden Zone Cup Logo.png

I am happy to announce a new Event, the Hidden Zone Cup.

The HZC is an 1vs1 Tournament, only for registered new-chapter.eu user, where players are hidden until the end of the tournament.
In order to keep the identities secret, we use new Steam accounts.
These accounts must be unused. No recorded ranked or lobby games.

To prevent misuse, sheduling and map drafts are handled by SAMEDO.
Players do the Civ Draft with Captains Mode: https://aoe2cm.net/
The link to the draft will be sent to you before the game starts.

Since a maximum of 16 people can take part in the tournament, I can unfortunately not consider all requests.
But I try to keep it as balanced as possible.

Sign ups close: 19.06.2022
Start of the Tournament: 25.06.2022
End of the Tournament: 31.07.2022

Set Maps: Zagros Mountains, Naivasha (Finale)

Maps you can pick: Beachfight, Bermuda, Cape of Storms, Fortified Clearing, Golden Island, Grand Bara, Mesas, Runestones, Sand Traps, Salt Marsh, Settlers.

Spoiler! :
Beachfight: Open Land Map
Bermuda: Hybrid Map, both Player on one Island. Extra Gold on second Island.
Cape of Storms: Hybrid Map, Wood between the players.

Fortified Clearing: Closed Land Map. Your Base is surrounded with Stonewalls.

Golden Island: Open Land Map. Mix of Ghostlake and Goldrush. Designed by Eru.
Golden Island.png
Grand Bara: Semi Closed Land Map. A dried-up desert with little to no wildlife but plenty of valuable gold. Venture through the forests to take control of the barren desert, but be aware of the unstable cracked terrain.

Mesas: Semi-Closed Land Map.
Naivasha: Hybrid Map with a lot of Gold and few Fish.
Runestones: Like Arabia, but more closed.
Salt Marsh: Like Arabia, shallow Water Terrain without Fish or extra ressources in the center.

Sand Traps: Open Land Map. Sand dunes make up the rest of the map which make booming hard and give a hill advantage to the aggressors. Stone is not immediately accessible here. Villagers will have to chip away at boulders in order to access any resource.

Settlers: Nomad Start with Transport ship. You have to immigrate instantly to the Island in the center.
Zagros Mountains: Open Land Map like Arabia with outside woodline. Shallow Water prevents direct construction at the outside woodline (2 tiles). Some small extra Gold- and Stonespots. Designed by SAMEDO.

Ich würde auf Set Maps nach Map 1 verzichten, da dass zu einer unfairen Balance an Homemaps kommen kann (3:1).
Gabs bei Hidden Cup (4)? Auch bei Viper und die Regel wurde stark hinterfragt

Danke dir für den berechtigten Hinweis, habe mich tatsächlich auch am Hidden Cup orientiert und diese Thematik nicht auf dem Schirm gehabt. Macht Sinn und wurde angepasst.

Klingt cool, aber warum sind fast nur hybrid maps dabei?

Vielen dank für euer Feedback. Ich habe ein paar kleine Änderungen vorgenommen, aber ich denke, dass ich eine ausgeglichene (und wilde) Kartenauswahl zusammen gestellt habe. Savonis wurde entfernt (was da eh skeptisch) und durch Sand Traps ersetzt. Grand Bara wurde hinzugefügt.

Land Maps: Badlands, Fortified Clearing, Grand Bara, Golden Island (Ice), Jungle Swamp (Mini-Teich), Mesas, Quarry, Runestones, Sand Traps, Zagros Mountains
Land Maps mit passierbarem Wasser: Fish Beach (Wenig Fisch), Salt Marsh (No Fish)
Hybrid-Maps: Bermuda, Cape of Storms, Forest Pond, Naivasha (Only Finals), Settlers (Nomad), Shorelands

(Maps mit Walls, easy wallable: Forest Pond (Palisade), Fortified Clearing (Stonewall), Quarry, Grand Bara, ggfs Mesas)

Kann ich noch ein paar Leute motivieren, teilzunehmen? Sind bisher weniger als erhofft :D

Steam Account kann ich für euch einrichten, falls das euch zu aufwendig ist.
Zagros Mountains spielt sich sehr ähnlich wie Arabien, wurde ein paar mal im 1vs1 getestet.
Runestones ist im Mappool dabei
Golden Island ist ähnlich wie Goldrush aber offener und Gold großflächig verteilt, Burgen passen nicht in die Mitte.
Salt Marsh, Bad Lands, Sand Traps, Mesas, Fish Beach etc kann man ähnlich wie Arabien spielen
Und auch für alle anderen sind ein paar Hybridkarten und geschlossene Karten verfügbar :D

Maps bewusst mit einer etwas exotischeren, aber gut spielbaren Auswahl
