Description:
A few words about this scheme:
- Abnormal is basically a reversed intermediate, its aim is to kill every worm on your own team using the provided resources. Whoever manages to do it first - wins. (note: draws, although quite uncommon, might happen)
- Start with 8 worms per team.
- Team weapons disabled. Cows with a 2 turn delay added.
- Mortar and cluster bomb power is 2 stars.
- Rounds required to win set to 3.
- Map choice: to minimize the placement factor avoid girders at all cost(!) and pick complex island maps (games played in caverns are very often one-sided, so unless you're sure about it, don't risk it)

Was this your own idea van?
Due to massive misunderstandings: MonkeyIsland refers to an island not a monkey. I would be a monkey, if my name was IslandMonkey meaning a monkey who is or lives on an island. MonkeyIsland is an island which is related to monkeys. There's been a legend around saying MonkeyIsland is a game. So please, think of me as an island or a game.

Dunno. Supposedly it originated before somewhere over NNN forums, so I'm not taking credit. The name is 100% mine tho.


edit: to clarify, I came up with the idea in a random game of 1v1v1 normal with my clanmates (which is documented in the chat of that particular replay, can be sent on request) back in the early 2013 - we tried it out and instantly loved it. Then I made it popular by organizing cups and tournaments and the scheme took off. Weeks later some NNN member mentioned to me that bytor had a similar scheme idea YEARS ago but it never went public. Considering that was purely coincidential I've decided to take the full credit for it.

v nice scheme man.
Due to massive misunderstandings: orange refers to a fruit not a color. I would be a color, if my name was orange meaning a color who is or lives in a rainbow. Orange is a fruit which is related to colors. There's been a legend around saying orange is a cool guy. So please, think of me as a fruit or a cool guy.

Not sure what's OIL, but if means the same as ONL, then yes.

2 important changes to help balance the scheme:

- Team weapons disabled.
- Caverns are now ill-advised.

I thought T17 maps were fun for abnormal, though :)

Just look at the change in a way that it forces you to be even more creative, cows were overpowered that early in the game and more often than not it gave advantage to the person who went first. We've been testing it a lot and the change was needed in order to make the scheme a bit more competetive. Don't worry, it doesn't affect the gameplay too much, you can trust me on that. ^^

Oh, and picking HHG (or anything but cows for that matter) was foolish simply because:
- the delay makes it unusable in most of the games (and you can't change that option in the current scheme file format)
- you can't change your team weapon between rounds

I would leave cows as normal weapon because they can be used to do nice combos (husky's turn against me), but not so powered. Maybe we could set 2 stars of power. It's just an opinion hehe

How about removing suicide bomber? I think it adds more strategy to the game. If you trap one worm of your opponent, he can't self-kill. (If he has used kami already)

That would also require taking teleports out, I thought about it, but I find that sometimes you need it when you get unlucky positions. (and don't want to waste kami on just self-killing your worm)
When you block someone he still loses a turn and you get to kill 1 of your own worms so I think girdering is a viable strategy.

- Cows with a 2 turn delay added. Regular power.

Reason: After many games - I don't want to compromise the fun and limit the strategy, and if that means a slight balance decrease, so be it. 2 turn delay seems to be fair.
Note that this is probably the final version of this scheme that will be used in the upcoming cup, so please update it.
