FAQ16. What is the difference between tournament and other themes?
In the section Heroes 3 Tournament - Турниры по 3-им Героям - ONLINE
there are two types of themes:
- The ordinary
themes are devoted to different questions, problems and discussions about the game. Each player, registered at the forum, can create them.
- The tournament
themes are in the process of testing and improvement. Such themes are created specially for online HoMMIII tournaments. Now only the forum's coordinator, Dirty_Player
, and the moderator responsible for HoMMIII season, Pit for LM
, can create them. After correction of all bugs and the improving of the structure, the right to create the tournament themes will be given to the organizers of the official tournaments too.
