Small Teams Division Steppe
STD'S for short.
This will be an attack and defend style battle.
It will be played on random steppe(medium) with no rerolls.
The match minimum is 4v4 however you may out number your enemy by 50% of their fielded men. i.e. 6v4 or 9v6 or 18v12. etc.
18 players is the maximum amount of people that can participate(however the server could be locked to a certain limit which could make it less)
Also mercenaries must be signed up to participate. There will be a mercenary roster, these men can show up to each fight and play for whichever side they choose so long as they have been cleared to the mercenary roster. Mercenaries do not have to ask to join a team they simply need to go to which ever side side they see fit.
It will be first to 7 or 13 rounds total played. Draws count as a round.
There will be no rerolls for maps. So hills cliffs and rivers count and can be used tactically.
Once the teams are ready to begin they may change the map from arena to steppe. If a team mate does not spawn, it is still
live, there shall be no need to confirm live because as soon as it has been changed to steppe it is considered a live battle.
To decide who gets top spawn and first faction each team will fight in the arena as infantry with no cavalry, archers or
throwing weapons. You will both pick the same faction. I.e nord vs nord.
The winner of the first map will be attacking the losers camp of their choice with the same factions. The map must be one which has the winning team
spawning outside (maps playable : Village, Port Assault, Battle on Ice)
If there is a tie in the first steppe map simply choose another map to be played (maps playable : Ruins, Ruined Fort, Field by the River, Nord Town)
Once there is a winner you will then proceed to attack the losers camp. If they successfully defend your invasion then you must return to random steppe(medium). This process may go on and on until 1 team decides to retreat or until one side is successful in defeating the other when they are attacking their camp.
You can and most likely will get out numbered from time to time, this was a reality of war and I am not looking for weak players but strong players to participate.
To sign up simply pm me with a list of 4 players including your own.
Still have alot to edit and add so bare with me.
Things I might add:
choosing a permanent settlement before the fights
factions and settlements may be changed 24 hrs before a battle
