DUEL 2.69l


This template combines the competitive theme of Jebus King with some of the most fun elements of Jebus Outcast. Designed for 1 Hero gameplay, Duel is a non-stop turbo action thanks to the free map control that can be found in the starting zone.

Main Features:

❖ The Bunker is an underground zone where players start, it contains: 3 control scrolls (Fly, DD and TP), Wood, Ore and Gold mines, several Knowledge boosters and Pandora's Box with all LVL 3 spells (requires Basic Wisdom).

❖ Gold Mine guards in the Bunker always join (without Diplomacy), price range is from 2000 to 7600 gold - max roll of Walking Dead (Skeletons, Familiars, Fire Elementals).

❖ On the ground level there's 4 towns: central town which mirrors your starting town, one town that mirrors central desert town, another one that mirrors opponent's faction and a Conflux town (used for learning magic skills and selling artifacts).

❖ There’s always at least one town of each faction on the map.

❖ Pandora with all spells (which requires Expert Wisdom) can be found in the "Side Bunker" that can be located in the corner of a Side Treasury. 60k value entrance guard.

❖ Diplomacy effectiveness is reduced to 25% joining in the desert. Zone guards between desert and biomes can randomly spawn as 25% or 50% joining, depending on a tile they stand on.

❖ All Pandoras on the surface always give units.

❖ L size version doesn't have Relics, T5 boxes and Dragon Utopias in the biome. Each faction has 4 guaranteed Pandoras.

Standard 1 hero gaming rules.

Refer to these rules in case of conflicting opinions. If the situation at hand is not covered in this ruleset, then write about it in the feedback channel.

  1. Recommended timers: Tournament 2 / 1 / 0:15 and Chill Play 2 / 1:30 / 1.

  2. Restart 1x111, simultaneous turns 135.

  3. 1 Hero 1 life. No surrender or running away from battle.

  4. No Draws. In final fights the player who deals the finishing blow wins the game (Reflected damage from Fire Shield and Magic Mirror also counts as a last hit for a player who casted these spells).

  5. It is allowed to Fly or DD over a second guard of monoliths and subterranean gates.

  6. Universal Break. Only one Border Guard (of 45K value) must be defeated or joined in order to gain free access to all other zones on the map. It is permitted to use Dimension Door to teleport over a Border Guard and immediately attack it.

  7. FF 242 (Final Fight on month 2 week 4 day 2). Whoever controls the central desert town by the end of this turn - wins the game. Winning the fight with summons also counts.

  8. In FFA matches, the player who is losing the final battle must always give items to the opponent. Also make sure to not leave the game until after you end your turn, otherwise it can cause serious bugs for other players.
