So, I was never much of a DM guy (only watched a bit of the last DM tournament and a few DM games here and there), but from an outsider's perspective, I find the Zone rules really....weird....

I understand why Franks were the best civ in AoC DM and how it is somewhat analogous to RM Hunwars back in the day, but I honestly had no idea that these additional rules were a thing. I mean, if this is what DM players prefer/are accustomed to, that's totally fine, but can someone please explain to an ignorant wolf the point of Zone rules? (Treb limitations, no Siege Workshop units, and limited to 40 axemen)

The franks obsession stretches way back.

Hmm. AoC DM was all about huns, franks wars is a nostalgia thing from AoK.

Basically all of the competitive aoc dm players have stopped playing or migrated to RM permanently in the last few years or the top rm players (viper jordan riut fire) dont play dm either, so whats left presently is a mix of aok deathmatch players who used to be on GameRangers and a mix of HD deathmatch players who play 300 pop on steam. I think this tournament is for those players so they are probaby more than happy with those rules

Zone rules in AoK was because siege was OP, and axemans were way too strong (60 axes would rape 40 paladins in AoK). But these rules make no sense in AoC, because axemans are weak, trebs dont do as much damage and AoC has halberdiers, rendering mass paladins obsolete. But seeing as they have been playing the same thing for 20 years, foolish to believe this will change 111.

But good luck with tourney!

"Trebuchets must strictly be used to knock down buildings and battle other Trebuchets.
Attacking of other units with Trebuchets is strictly prohibited."

Every time I repair my trebs with vils in game, my vils get trebbed down.

Maybe this is my tournament to win kappa.

Funny that they showcase siege in trailer even if they are not allowed in tournament.

or does "Siege is not allowed. ( Onager, Heavy Scorpions, or Rams ) " mean only those mentioned so SO,siege rams, bombard cannons are allowed....?

BTW, should the tournament be renamed to "Battle of 40 axes" :tongue:

But in all seriousness, good to see another tournament and GL to all DM players.
Will definitely tune is if its cast during sane hours.
