Today we made a decision about conducting "Royal Games" on our offline tournament «HeroesLands». This time Royal Games will start on custom campaigns. You'll need to download the campaign file (they will be posted here and here) and create a starting save for you yourself. While Royal Games will take place, there will be NO General Tourney, Landless Tourney and Merchants' Guild Tourney in HeroesLands! These Royal Games will be dedicated to FIRST ASSEMBLY OF KNIGHTS OF THE ROUND TABLE! And we hope, that they'll become as traditional as those Royal Games, dedicated to Magistate, that we usually conduct in autumn. The games will start after we sum up the results of last tourneys, that have just ended. What is special in this kind of competition is that all the submitted saves will be evaluated by days, and also that all saves will be divided into the groups of FIVE saves, according to the time of submitting. In each one of such groups there will be winner, who'll get the cherished feud:) Other players inside the group will get their points, divided by their place in group. There are no mines raffled in these tourneys. Check the main page of our tournaments «HeroesLands» for the official announcement of Royal Games.
