Abyss Gates v1.5

Submitted by Creamy_T
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
Abyss Gates is a Hero Defense map where you have to fend of waves of enemies (similar to Enfo's Team Survival).

New Version 1.5

Big update this time around is nightmare difficulty. Each wave present a new challenge, as each unit has been given at least one new ability. Many waves and bosses have been changed altogether, and will require some strategic teamwork to overcome.

I have also hopefully (once again) cleaned up any global fatal problems, as your hero now HAS to be alive to upgrade skills. This is DEFINITELY was was causing a vast majority of fatal errors.

I had some requests to make the Druid ranged, so instead I just added a hero who has 2 of the 3 skills trees as the druid, is ranged, and has offensive skills to replace the druids Battle Skills tree.

A number of Manipulator's skills have been improved - he is a much more versatile hero now.

Check the changelog at my website (http://www.creamyt.com) for a sort-of full list of changes.

Mini-Me: Good map. The ability selecting is done in an interesting way which allows many different builds of your hero. I liked the items also. Overall a good 'enfo'. Aproved.

    I think it almost been a year or so that you have updated this game. Anyhow, I am glad that you did because this is the only game I can see that can beat Enfo's. The Crypt Lord Boss is really hard to defeat, because it takes too long to defeat him and new wave spawns are just catching up and building up a huge force that can't be stopped in time.

    This is a great defense map, but crashes war3.exe with a fatal error at some point for some reason. I will ask someone else to host and see if it's a problem on my end.

    Wooph - Yep, still trying to figure out what's causing those. Must be some really weird combination spells/spawning or something..not sure what it is.

    XenoSword - Thanks for uploading this before btw. Also - he is tough, but definitely doable. Just gotta get a good group of ppl together. Also, it gets much harder after that =)

    It doesn't always crash though, I've just lasted for about 70 minutes with no problems.

    Another bug: The Spirit Warrior suddenly disappears, never to be seen again. No respawns.

    The Fatal errors and crashing happen when a dead player gets an ability, i tested this to make sure that it's true and 20 times out of twenty it happened

    Rememberme - thank you for the response!! That comment honestly got me to work on the map again. Funny how simple and obvious it seems in retrospect...

    Anyway, so far so good with the global fatals, I'll keep my fingers crossed anyway though...

    I happened to join this map randomly on battlenet a couple weeks ago. The skill upgrades were a bit confusing at first, but after 1 game I found the hero customization to be very addicting. Anyone who likes maps like enfos should check it out.

    The loading is damn long to me.
    Try to use a map optimizer.

    Callahan - agreed, and done. didn't realize they had optimizer programs...shows how out of touch i am =(

    Gonna wait at least a week to see if any bug/balance issues pop up and incorporate those with optimization for a map update.

    Hey CreamyT. Have some bad news, your map still crashes about mid way through, it crashed a few seconds after the pitlord boss cameout. Settings were PVP and on Normal. Fantastic update by the way. I wish I knew what else to do for you.

    I'm not sure about that bug because I didn't made to that boss though.
    But I'm pretty sure about "leaver bug"
    From what I have encountered is... when Blue player is leaving the Red Hero will also disappear as well.

    Hey Creamy T!

    Really good map, with no exaggerated Heroes. Like it.
    Anyway, I think creep money is not enough. If you play less than 5 players, you have difficulty to improve your damage deal, because you are not able to buy better equipment on time.
    Personnaly, we are going to the 7th or 8th boss & Lvl 23 (3 players)... But not more ^^. Or maybe there is some tips to go further...
    A one player mode should be appreciated too ^^
    Good job man

    Angelserap - Thanks! If you make it to the endurance rounds you do end up with enough money for a bunch of the best items, but a part of the game IS spending your money wisely

    7th or 8th boss (Aketmar?) is def where the game starts to get really tough. Get a few single-target abils if you can (dark bolt, true focus, flare) and blast away. Make sure you have enough AOE to mitigate those stockpiling enemies swarming.

    I know that the Druid can summon but doesn't really have any items for the Druid in the shops. The Anti-Camp Guard Tower aura range should be reduced since we can get pretty pushed back when Bosses comes.

    Nice update.
    but I guess I have found new bug in Paladin's Blinding Light Aura.
    the it will instantly kill the enemy and award no gold, if it's happen at unique, it might fully restore hp or instant dead as well.
