Brothers this is a call to arms...
It is time to decide which specialist is greatest the Neptune or the Hydra!
Everyone is welcome to join at any difficulty. This challenge runs through Sunday April 3rd!
1) Join by posting below with your side (Hydra or Neptune) and difficulty. Use this spreadsheet to track your scores (use tabs on the bottom to select Neptune/Hydra). Feel free to use this thread to add flavor and talk smack as well.
2) This challenge will be played on 10 levels; Drayan Core through Traitor's Bunker. Nothing that happens before these levels affects your score, but obviously getting there in good shape is important.
3) Aborting or restarting levels is not allowed. All results must come from the first play-through.
4) Every specialist, in your chosen class, that you deploy or swap in on a level gains you 1 point.
- 4a) Specialists must be deployed before the listed turn limits to count towards your score. i.e. If the turn limit is 20 you must deploy on or before turn 19 for them to count.
5) Every death of any templar costs 1 point.
6) Difficulty bonuses are as follows:
- Completion of the challenge with no deaths
Ironman 8 / Nightmare 6 / Brutal 4 / Hard 2 / Normal 1/ Easy 0
- Completion of the challenge with deaths
Ironman 4 / Nightmare 3 / Brutal 2/ Hard 1 / Normal 0 / Easy -2
7) The winner, Hydra or Neptune, will be chosen by adding the top three player's scores from each class together. The highest score endows eternal glory and bragging rights on its class.
NOTE: If we somehow have 8 or more players on each side (I know there's a big Steam community out there), we will take the top 5 in each class.
8) The Champion will be the individual player with the highest score.
*** IMPORTANT NOTE: This Challenge relies on everyone reporting their score accurately. You could cheat, but then you would have to live with the knowledge that you are a filthy, stinking cheater, who ruins other people's fun in order to make your self feel better. So please have fun and don't cheat!
