The Battle ScreenEdit
King of the Hill (KOTH)- There are currently 2 ways KOTH are used in AoC. The permenant KOTH is discussed in another section. KOTH as used in battle is a ranking where any player may challenge a higher ranking player. If the lower ranked player wins he/she will take the higher spot. A player may attack another player above them as many times as they would like. Regular battling rules apply to all players of lower rank than the attacking player.
Master of the Forge (MotF or sometimes MOFO)- This tournament is done over 24 hours. The format is King of the Hill. There are 3 prize divisions, Shield, Armor, and Weapon (i don't have access to the official names). The top ranked player in each tier and each division receives a champion version of the gear, 1 greater, and 1 lesser unit gear. 2-10 receive 1 greater champ gear, 11-25 receive 1 lesser champ gear. After the timer runs out the tiers are locked. Any ranked player can be attacked until the timer reaches 0 (see sniping). When the next MotF arrives the champ gear is taken from the last MotF winners and is offered up again for the new tournament. Every champion keeps all unit gear.
Duels- This event is much like KotH, but the armies are NOT used. This is strictly Champ verses Champ.
Faction Wars- The game is divided into 3 Factions- Dragons, Phoenix, and Griffons. Each faction has the opportunity to gift war supplies to friends and allies before the Wars. These war supplies help the faction that donates them. The first faction war was dominated by the largest faction the dragons. The second faction war was dominated by a handicap. Griffons won the second faction war. A faction unit is availabe for purchase with BC before the event begins. The winning faction receives the larges boost of the faction unit and a 24 hour market sale. The second place faction receives a smaller boost to their faction unit. Any player may purchase any faction unit in any amount. For example, a dragon faction champion can own 40 phoenix units. The first faction wars had colossal units, the second featured equippable soldiers.
Blitz- Blitz Tournaments use the KotH format. All Blitz Tournaments are unannounced and typically last 4 hours. A blitz can be accessed from the battle page. A typical blitz will use the champions army.
- Gambler's Blitz- Random prizes are awarded at a certain percent of the time for each attack. The higher the champion's rank the better percentage (or chance) he/she has at getting loot. NOTE: There are no final prizes for this type of blitz!
- Duel Blitz- This is just like the duels tournemant. KotH format is used. This is a champ verses champ event, armies are not used.
