About Hyrule Conquest and Myself

Hyrule Conquest is a mod for 0 A.D. that pits factions and races from the Legend of Zelda universe against each other. It has 6 factions, the Kingdom of Hyrule, the Zora Dominion, the Gohma, the Kokiri, and the Gorons. I am IronWolf, I'm a relatively new content creator for the Hyrule Conquest community. Making everything from build order videos, how to's, metagame theory crafting, and more! I want to reach out to those in both the 0AD and Hyrule Conquest communities to come and participate in the first Hyrule Conquest tournament!

Maps - The players will play the first game on Gerudo Desert and the second one on Death Mountain.  Should the match go to a third game, a double blind Rock, Paper, Scissors will be issued via a judge and the winner will pick between Gerudo Desert and Death Mountain. However, both players may opt to agree to either Gerudo Desert of Death Mountain without having to do Rock, Paper, Scissors.

Should any player act in a toxic or unsportsmanlike manner, please report this to a judge and provide a screenshot or some other form of evidence of the player in question.

Connection Errors - Should a player disconnect from a game, the game will be paused and will remain so for up to 5 minutes in wait for the disconnected player to try and reconnect to the match. Should the player not reconnect within 5 minutes of the game being paused, it will result in the loss of the single match. Should the player continue to have multiple connection errors throughout the set, all matches for that set will be forfeit.

Reporting Matches - Matches will be recorded via the Wildfire Games Forum Tournament Thread where the victors of the match will post the score of their match, who their opponent was, and the replays of the matches played. Updates on new opponents will also be provided in the Forum Thread as well.

[Edited] Bugs and Game Exploits

There are a few bugs in the current version of the game. Some can break things while others can be overlooked.
The following are a list of all the 
BANNED exploits:
No Hero Selection Screen - Should this happen, the players will restart the match so that the player that this happens to may be allowed to pick their hero
Producing Units from Captured Kokiri Buildings - There is a bug where if someone captures a Kokiri structure they can produce Kokiri units from it. No one is allowed to exploit this bug
Picking your Hero but not being able to train him/her - Sometimes even after you have picked your hero you still will not be able to train them. This bug is rare but should it happen, the solution is to leave and rejoin the game. The opposite player will pause the game and wait for up to 5 minutes for the player who was missing their hero to return.

The following are a list of all the PERMITTED exploits:
Gohma Egg Ingoring Population Cap - While this bug may come across as broken, more often then not it turns around to bite the Gohma player should they be constantly ignoring it which is the reasoning for its legality. The way it works is the Gohma Queen unit can lay eggs to turn into units which can exceed the population cap you are currently at. However, if you have gone over your population cap, you will not be able to produce any units or eggs from buildings until you've gone back under your population cap.

Hey guys! Quick update on the tournament! I just wanted to let you all know thank you for your continued support of the event I really appreciate it and it means a lot to me ^_^ There was something that I wanted to address with the ruleset. Most of the rules as well as the tournament schedule will remain the same except for the Hero selection system and the way judges will be issued out. 

Hero Banning System

This idea was given to me by Feldfeld and it is something I personally agree with. Due to certain heroes becoming a bit of an issue within the metagame as of recently. Because of this, the hero banning format was created. The way this will work is before each set, both players will ban ONE hero from the opposing faction's list of heroes.

For example: Let's say I am going to be playing as the Kingdom of Hyrule and my opponent will be playing as the Kokiri. Both players will select their civilization and then message a judge which of your opponent's heroes you wish to ban. So for this example if I am playing as the Kingdom of Hyrule, I will tell the judge that I wish to ban Saria. Simultaneously, the other player will tell the judge who they wish to ban so for this example let's say my opponent wishes to ban Link. After both players tell the judge what they wish to ban, the judge will let them know what heroes they can't play and then the players will continue on and play the rest of the Best of 3 set. Should either player intentionally select a banned hero, a judge should be alerted and informed so that they may issue a strike to that player as well as a lose of that game but not the set. So let's say for example if Link was banned but I picked Link anyway and played him, a judge will be informed and it will result in me automatically losing the game. 

Judge Issuing

There are currently 3 judges involved with the War of Twilight team at the moment. These judges being users rain_ironwolf, Darkinterloper, and Exodarion. You will need to get in contact with at least one of these judges before you and your opponent can play your match in order to issue out hero bans. You will also need to get in contact with one of these judges should your set go to a third match in order to have them issue out a double blind rock-paper-scissors. Lastly, should any of the rules be broken or any unsportsmanlike conduct is seen, please send a replay + a screenshot of the discrepancy in question to one of these judges and they will address it as soon as they can.


This is just a friendly reminder that after EVERY tournament set, either you or your opponent will need to send a zipped file to one of the judges with all of the replays of your match. These replays need to be in individual folders in order to distinguish between games. 

For example: Let's say you send a zipped file of your match to a judge and you played 3 games within that set. You will need to have 3 folders in that zipped filed named game 1, game 2, and game 3. You are not required to name them this just so long that it is clear as to which game is which within the match.

One could argue its unsportsmanlike.

@rain_ironwolf I take it that according to rules everything is allowed


This includes possible oversights and bugs right?

Thank you for bringing this to my attention this is something I may have overlooked. I'll make a list of permitted and banned bug exploits. My apologies for not doing so before. 

[Edited] Done. There is a list of what is legal and what is not between the major bugs in the game. ^_^

I think I've also came across a description bug, the feature is different than written

I'm compiling a list of bugs but am not really familiar with the game so ill submit it in a month when its more complete

The Zora hero Telara doesn't seem to increase unit attack though (tried with mages Floodmaster and Stormbolter)
