Near mount Aeglos a siege takes place.

 

Complete 1-player community map “Aeglos Fortress”
on Advanced difficulty as fast as possible.[1]

 

[1]. While complying with following restrictions:

Rules

  • Do not use Amii Monument.
  • Do not use Enlightenment to summon any affinity of Batariel.
  • Do not teleport, create, or in any way move a unit with ground presence into location where Blue Stronghold is sieged, without going the usual way first – this includes but is not limited to: Nether Warp, Scythe Fiends, Incubator and many more. You may use spells like Infect, Undead Army, or send flying units like Swamp Drake or Grim Bahir.
  • Do not decompose any non-player Frost units.
  • Play the map alone, replays with two players are not accepted. Play the map as a Skylord that has monument in bottom left corner of the map, if you start the game in top-right, replay will not be accepted.

Accessing and sending the replay

You may find your replay in:

This PC --> Documents --> Battleforge --> replays

Your most recent game will be named “autosave.pmv”, unless you have already saved it in-game, or checked in option “save all replays” in the game options.

You may submit your replays as many times as you want, however, only the fastest one will count. To reduce my workload, please rename your file to CMC4_"time”_”nickname”.pmv – for example: CMC4_23m51s_Dallarian.pmv  .

Submit your replay through Discord (Contact Dallarian#1085) or through the Skylords Reborn forum until 21.02.2022 23:59 CET

Please note that some of the best replays may be posted on forum or may be used in a video.
If there are found any significant gameplay breaking bugs, I reserve the right to disqualify entries.

How to access the map

Spoiler

Open the world map. Click on a blue icon in right-bottom corner of the map, next to the Battlegrounds. Choose relevant difficulty (advanced). Choose the map from the list – most likely under “Community Maps for download”.[2]

[2]. The map is named differently in German and French versions of the game. Look out for “Festung Aeglos” and “Forteresse d’Aeglos” respectively. 

 

Rewards

In the unlikely case of a tie, the run that was submitted earlier gets the higher placement in the ranks.

 

Pure Frost have received many nice changes in the past, including brand new card added in December. I have genuine hope the event will increase interest in playing pure Frost. Therefore, the whole rewards pool consists of Frost boosters and Frost cards only. Some rewards are unique to newer players only.

2nd place           6 Frost Boosters         Avatar of Frost

Hello, that's a wrong way of participating - you are not Dallarian are you? But don't worry, I logged you correctly, and I got your in-game name from the replay data.

For anyone else, please make sure to include in-game name, as the forum one may be often different.

I like the fact the map and event is Frost themed... But I'm 100% sure Pure Frost players won't be anywhere close top 20 margins...

Shadow will probably wreck the map :/

There should be bonus award for #keeping it in theme# players which play the map in Pure Frost for roleplay purposes or at least mentions :D

We had such event back in December, it was fun for sure!

However, I did not intend to force anyone to play pure Frost. It's enough that I forced everyone to play my own map 😉

Any chance that you can announce the winners sooner than that, without sending out the prizes?
