    I'd recommend doing this on player matches of Blitz on Deep Forest.

    The people who are not on the host's team simply kill themselves each of the 3 rounds, so that the rounds ends, and the host's team wins. Mages work best, as they have the Meteor Storm skill, and it can kill the whole team if they are all grouped together. They also have Burning Finger, which they can kill themselves with by casting it at their feet if the Meteor Storm somehow doesn't kill them.

    If the other team is quick about killing themselves, you can get a 3 round match done in about 45 seconds. Plus since it's on player, the next match will start after a small time, and no one will have to keep rejoining a new game after each match, which I do not believe you can do after the last map of Crusades.

    This is faster then doing Crusades.

    CanaDa FwendThere definitely is a Blitz Player Match option and it would be slightly faster than Crusades if disconnecting was not endemic to the game mode. Our progress was much faster in Crusades.

    EarthboundXGuess we got different experiences then. It was fine when I boosted it, no disconnects.

    Both mode work fine though I'd say. I just thought Player Blitz was faster.

    CanaDa FwendYeah it was weird. 1 hour of crusades with zero disconnects, 1 hour of blitz with 12-18 freezes spread across about 5 different players.

    Even better you dont have to play but one round of the crusade.If you are evil then make the map stonehelm if you are good then play necropolis.You cant actually select the map but if you go to search for that map and come back it will be able to be selected this saves tons of hours.

    To make this go faster, host crusade matches as you will get credit for each map in the crusade. This can also be achieved in Player match games.
