Default Oly games in H5

HI guys, please discuss

The previous system in which opponents were selected randomly has changed to a system in which opponents with similar Olympiad points will be matched first.

as i understand, if i have 8 points i will face any class who has 8 points too?
so if lvl 85 wins wins wins wins and then feeds up his clannie and get down to 8 points i will face him too?
even tho im lvl 79 right?

or am i wrong?

please discuss

seems so, but imo its better then keep fighting hero after hero. This system will force the players with high scores to fight each other and will enable the ones that have less points to increase them.


Seems very good.

Agreed. Also gotta take into consideration that the number of matches people can do. might force more CB to go on. maybe a good thing? not sure yet for myself. just gotta wait and see

Too the most part you are correct kirill. It assumes he can actually feed the points to his clan mates, and get back down to gather more points.. But then most of us, even with lvl 81 toons lose to lvl 85 toons.
At this point, with all the changes happening in the Oly part of game with H5, I find it hard to guess what strategies big clans and top players will adopt to get to be heroes. That lvl 85 toon might just as easily find he's feeding points to his clan's enemies and not his clan members. If he's trying to pass points to toons which a clan wants to become heroes, he will need a lot of points by middle of the month. In open oly, a lot of heroes or potential heroes will be fighting others with similar high point scores, or might.
As SayntLucifer indicates, mostly we need to wait and see, or possibly read the posts from Korean players.

Doing any mega-feeding is going to be really difficult on an uber farmer. With a maximum of only 280 fights every month, if you can't afford to lose the hero slot on the farmer, then you can't give up too much of your points.

At the same time the requirement for how many matches people need to play goes up to 15 meaning there should be even more points to take from players.
Also the vorpal and vesper gear in the shop, on top of the fact that the daily quests seem really good in terms of rewards means there should be much more people doing olympiad regularly.

Make no mistake, feeding is going to be harder to do effectively as you can't just do a 1000+ matches to get your desired results and take hero without contention. Especially (in fact crucially) because players can now /olympiadstat other people...

Oly in H5 still requires a batch of 8 people to start a wave.
So, if there are 7 signed people with just 1 point each in that wave, and 1 person with 1000 points signed at the same moment, there will be a match in which the person with 1000 pts fights someone with 1 point.

oh, so, as far as this goes....
ok they changed from 9 ppl to 10,
so i guess when 10 ppl are signed and u have 1 point, i have 4 points

some other have 1 point and another has 6 and bla bla bla have 1000 points

we all be matched up lower points to lower points and the one with 6 points to one with 1000 points or will it be totally korean random as usual?

Lets be real people. Even with lvl 85 characters you're still going to lose to oly enforcers. They're called enforcers for a reason.

But if there are 2 enforcers signed, the stuff becomes more interesting

Not if the enforcers get each other in their matches most of the time

There is a good way to feed in this system. It is called keep your numbers high.
I will detail here:
I have 1 char that i want to get hero on. This wont be regular char, can have a lot of real victories on pre-80 chars on it's own, and even higher, as such can do some points up to 30-40 alone. Then, I have oly farmers on other accounts/clans/trains, etc. They will get also at around 30-40 points. Now, a tipical wave of ppl doing 15 matches for rewards consist of lower-than-30 huge majority. The chances for your farmer to meet the prospected new hero are high, and, in case wont meet it, will be able to continue farming on both chars. Once they get over 100 points will be even easier.
There will be scouts at Oly NPCs in all towns to see if any possible contestant is on, i.e. another known farmer with trains/clans, etc.
It wont be any easier than before, but also not THAT much harder as some ppl imagine.

I'm not on the same server as you, but from your posts I get the strong feeling that you have no clue how to compete in the Olympiad.

To sum it up:

In general the fights will be more fair since people that are farmers will get high in points pretty fast and they will face people with higher points very soon after they started "farming" Olympiad. During the end of the month when many people are inside, the so called "lowbies" will also have a lot of fun during Olympiad because they should be faceing each other most of the times.
Overall the matching of opponents via there points will make Olympiad ALOT more fair and interesting. Farmers won't need to camp Olympiad 6 hours everyday to get as many 1-2-3 pointers as possible to become hero.
Due to the max amount of 60 matches in open per week only the real strongest people of their class will get hero and not the one who camps the most.

Thanks for this change NC.

ant points lost will be reduced from 1/3 to 1/5. So no more heros screwing up your points by 9 more every time you get them.
