Final Ranking and Stream recording:

The challenge:

You will play on a Community map version of the Dwarven Riddle called "Battle of Tactics 6"
On this one-player map, you don't have to build orbs. The Rainbow crystal will grant them to you.
But it´s a Rainbow Crystal - that means your orbs will switch constantly the colours.

That switch order is:
     Fire -> Nature -> Frost -> Shadow -> Fire -> ...

The switch will be after:
     Tier 1 = 30 sec
     Tier 2 = 45 sec
     Tier 3 = 60 sec
     Tier 4 = 20 sec

And access to the higher:
     Tier 2 = 5 min
     Tier 3 = 10 min
     Tier 4 = 15 min

Do not lose the crystal, or else you will lose the game.

Rules:

1. You are not allowed to play colourless cards. (like Rogan, or Moon)

Rankings:

Main Ranking:
     Finish the map as fast as you can

Crystal-Stamp-Rankings:
     On the map are 8 Crystals. Each destruction of them has its own ranking
     (If you want to see the exact time of your Crystal destruction, you can upload your Reply on my website: www.t1421.de 
      There will be no ranking, it´s only to help players to optimise their runs)

Crystal-Tier-Rankings
     Most Crystals destroyed in the T1 Time frame
     Most Crystals destroyed in the T2 Time frame
     Most Crystals destroyed in the T3 Time frame
     Most Crystals destroyed in the T4 Time frame

Style-Ranking:
     Deck with the most number of orb restrictions
     (Deck dose not mean you have to play the card)

Spoiler

Orb restrictions means the number of coloured orbs you need to play the card.
For example: Construct and Sunstriders will have a 1 Orb restriction. 
image.pngimage.png

Shadow Worm and Westland terror have a 4 Orb restriction.
image.pngimage.png

Hybrit orbs count as 0.5. So Deep fang and Twilight Hag will have 2.5.

Some information about the map:

Spoiler

The first 4 Crystals which you destroy will grant you 50 energy.
(which 4 of the 8 you destroy doesn't matter)

In your base is a "teleporter" which can disable the Orb-Switching-Countdown. 
So if you don't care or if the sound is getting on your nerves, you can use it. But you can´t turn it back on again.
image.png

I added some new, anti-flying units barriers. So do not wonder why your flyers may do strange path finding. For example here:
image.png

The map is designed to get harder the further north you go. So you may change your usual Dwarven Riddle strategy.

FAQ:

Spoiler

Will I receive a card with a custom Artwork like in the post?
No. You will get a "normal" Moon, Promo Lyrish Knight, etc.

For the Orb restriction - do i have to play the card or just have a high restriction card in the deck?
You just have to have the card in your deck.

Oh no, I played the map in expert only to realize that it was supposed to be standard

xD i haven't tested it on expert - how was your experience? Did you make it?
I try with my BOTs to create challenges that are manageable for all skill levels and without the need special cards. Thats why we play on Std. :-)

It was difficult to start pushing with T1 and T2, I could only stay at base and protect, and only at T3 could I build towers strong enough to fully protect the base, and even that became harder once Bandit Walkers start spawning. The waves spawn so fast, once you've cleared one wave, you only have 30-60 seconds until the next one. I had to wait until T4 to get flying units to clear all the crystals. Power gain also felt like an issue, but it wasn't impossibly difficult, my deck had no restrictions, so I almost always had something useful to spawn with each color.


I can see someone really good at the game somehow rush the crystals stealthily while also defending the base, because the map ends immediately once all crystals are destroyed. Took me 25 minutes, I could see someone do it in around 10 minutes on expert, if not faster.

Fun map, fun event!

I dont realy get the style-ranking, can you see the deck somehow in the replay or how do you know how restricted the deck was when we dont actually have to play the cards?

And why punnish players for playing the game and increasing their rank? You made the most valuable card in this event not achiveable for most of us. Thats a little bit of a downer.

But besides that great job!

A replay file saves the whole deck, wether cards are played, or not.

So yes, he is able to see the played deck with a few klicks only

Thx for your feed back. For the Deck question -> Its like Volin said, you can also use the webpage and see your deck there https://t1421.de/

I dont see the Construct as a punishment for players, I and the Anonym Sponsor of this card wanted to reward and inspire new player to play the event.
The Construct might be ~9k BFP, but there is a lot for of prizes in booster and in cards for the other players. Top 10 + Bonus Rank + Random Draw.

So dont be frustrated or sad that you may miss this Promo in this event. 🤝

I tested your map on expert, didn't realize it was only meant to be played on standard, I suffered for nothing 🤣. One of my favorite BOTs so far.

This seemed really fun but I sadly didn't see it in time and don't have the time to do it today...

Best of luck to everyone!

That sad, but the map is still available, so if you are seeking for something new in the future - you can give it a try 🙂
