Default Control of arena's events

Hello modders,

I was wondering what's the easiest way to control arena events ?

For example to set a game with an arena competition every 6 months. And maybe also the possibility to cancel the random arena events to have only 2 competitions per year in the current example.

It's not possible to mod events at all and no way to control any aspects of the arena.

You can change the artifact received by the champion of the arena... CBM does this...

Also whether deathmatches happen is based on a map command, which is why they don't occur on some maps.

You can also use Wish to trigger them. It's a gigantic waste*, yes, but there is that level of control.

*Except for in Single Player, here you can make a bunch of AI suicide their pretenders.

In SP you can send a Doom Horror to Arena, kill every other competitor AND horrormark them. What`s not to like?

IIRC there was a game that centered on the Arena for the winning condition. Players had to design their champions before the game started, using a set number of design points, and then fight each other in the Arena after the game started. The game master used a modding script for this and created a GM unit which could insta-cast Wish and wish for an arena death match.

Somebody else will probably remember the game I am talking about, and I expect that the Mod to run it has been released into the public as well. Look there if you want to have this half-yearly arena competition.
