As you may have noticed, we're currently experiencing technical difficulties with our online gameplay. In the interim, Big Huge Games would like to propose the following single-player challenge to our community-

The Master Unit Skedaddle
Grand Prize- $100 cash

Runner Up- A copy of Rise of Nations:Gold and Rise of Legends signed by Brian Reynolds himself.

Players compete for the fastest time to produce an upgraded master unit on the Inferno 4-player map without using cheats or allies. All 3 enemies must be set to Easy in Free-For-All Mode, and the player with the fastest time to upgraded master unit entering play wins.

Valid Upgraded Master Units are as follows:

King Leviathan
Great City of Vengeance
Elder Glass Dragon

Players can submit their entries as .rec files with their recorded time to master unit upgrade in the title of the e-mail to tournament@bighugegames.com. All entries must include .rec files and must be submitted by Thursday, August 24nd, 3:00 p.m. EST.

Good luck, and have fun!

Warm Regards,
Joe "GreyPawn" Pishgar

What should i think of this? Well it seems like a little "trick" to move the attention away from the stupid server problems. But ok...

I have 2 questions for you greypawn, i know this is not the certain thread for it, but i don`t want to get in there now!

1. I play a lot 3v3, but it seems in 95 of 100 games the map is condottieri! => why? we did not chose it! it is random! but its only condottieri!

2. when will the ranks be up to date? or do they get updated for example every week on monday?

Can we use modding (AKA 500000 resources using nation pages)?

Well I asked him on MSN twice and he never actually said no.

So theoretically, yes I can.

*walks off to do some modding*

EDIT: 5 seconds is my best so far. I reckon I can shave 2 seconds off by actually starting with a Steam Fortress and King Levi researched, but I'll try that tomorrow.

My first attempt was 18min and 39 sec but I made alot of mistakes...

Oh and btw do we need only to research the master unit upgrade or actualy build it?

Nvm the "produce" in the rules says it all.

Wow! What master unit is that, Paperfriend..?

Greypawn, is it a prize for $100 for each master unit, or $100 for any master unit?

Now to figure out how to hack recs:P.

This is a forged signature.

King Leviathan

GreyPawn, if I want to scout my opponents base, but my units happen to get killed, does that mean you are using allies?

P.S: Could you please post the best times, I don't feel like waiting for an e-mail to reach BHG, if I can't win anyway

Is it allowed to modify the rush rules? peace for the first 30 mins would make it a bit easier.

No modding, and you can alter rush rules if you so desire.

If I happen to have scavenge, I could let units die for that extra 4 seconds, of course them dieing accidently is a lot easier to get allowed

17:40 with Vinci at my first try.

I think Vinci are the best, because they have a borehole (for extra resources) and a calculator (for trading).

Enemies could best be Cuotl since they have no attrition and are easier to raid.

I actually think the Cuotl will win, with subjangation, they have a good set of T vs. E, while Vinci have to trade it.

My scenario allows 0 seconds.

(Ofcourse it is 4 players, and yes, it is called Inferno aswell.)
