I would ask help to all community for update HC rules, because the actual page contains outdated or obsolete rules. Post all things that you think should be added or deleted from the actual page...
What is this?
This is a CONTEST! First 4 of each group will get a prize consisting in a stats, skill and credits boost and a head trophy medal!
What are trophy heads?
Every second month this contest starts and each player starts receiving Trophy Heads every day. You can see how many trophy heads a player has in his detail panel when you click its name. If the player has trophy heades you will see a dark dragon head with a number next to it, if that player has no heads you wont see anything there.
How you get heads?
Every time you win against a player you get a head from him. If you are VICTORIOUS (read rules when a fight makes you victorious or just winner) you get ALL the enemy heads. While in sanctuary you can attack other players holding heads. If you have no creatures to defend yourself anybody who attacks you will get all your heads.
How is the top calculated?
The top is calculated based on your heads score and the heads score is calculated based on your total trophy heads and your online time you spent while having those heads. The score increases from time to time (one score count at about 15-60min, random) with an amount proportional to your head count and only if you are online and in a location where you can fight. In stage two of the contest you have to stay online and hold the heads in a predefined location annoucned on the newslog when stage 2 begins.
What is stage II of the contest?
When one player in each group reaches a certain amount of heads, stage II of the contest comes in. During this stage players can get score only in repdefined locations on the map, making it a constant war for anyone trying to hold the heads. This stage is the final stage before the winners are decided and lasts just 24 hours. Because of the penalty a high count of heads gives and the large amount of heads collected in one big ball, during this stage any player has a chance to rapidly increase its score and get on top positions. This is the final decisive round of the contest, but no one sais that you have to fight it to win the contest, any strategy is allowed including running away with the heads to prevent others to get very high score, its up to you.
What other thing must i know?
Each head brings a temporary penalty to the holder making it more dificult to keep them a longer time and increase score. The players with most heads hide in remote location, go hunt them and take their trophyies, dont let them keep the heads too long and gather a high score, they wont come to you , you must hunt them! Also know that you wont get score while in sanctuary areas or inside areas where you can't be attacked. Players that won such a contest once wont be able to win it again, they will apear gray and striked out in the list, and they will not get heads when winning fights against other players holding heads. If for some reason a player will be able to play and win the contest again and make for a medal that time too, he will get a gold heads medal.
