Game setup
View scheme settings
Both open island and cave maps. Also good number of WA and WWE starter design maps work as well.
  • Map size generally works best with regular one, (1920x696), but slightly larger ones works as well especially with many ppl and/or extra worms.
  • If game is played with additional rounds, map should be played on less ploppy ones due to stockpiling.
# of Teams: # of Worms
  • 1v1: 6 for each player
  • 2v2: 4 for each player
  • 2v2v2: 3 for each player
  • 3v3: 3 for each player
  • 3 FFA: 6 for each player
  • 4 FFA: 5 for each player

Neocombat was created out of inspiration from Intermediate and Kaos Normal, but it is still a fairly orginal game. There are no rules in this scheme, and it requires both tactical and various weapon skills while using creativities to play this game well. It has these RubberWorm features: sdet, ldet, wdca, antisink, craterate(5), and cratelimit(15). Antisink is a major part of this scheme as it makes it much harder to drown worms. Worms can be still be plopped if worm gets plopped twice without any pause in motion. Even with antisink, there are still many unique ways to plop worms. Getting crate is not a huge part of this game unlike Kaos because players start out with many different kinds of weapons. There are number of delayed weapons for spawn protection, and the mine fuse time is 3 seconds.
