AniMa War Ex V0.2 BETA [1.29+ Only] [NEW]

Submitted by The10th-X
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
[​IMG]

Welcome to Ani(me)Ma(nga) War Ex(Cel), a bit different from your typical AOS map with extra objectives and different from your typical anime map (Aka, not spellspamming 2bright4youreyes stuff), this is the BETA version which is at most base features complete and fully fleshed out characters etc, the aim as in any AOS map is to destroy the enemies power crystal, however there is an optional point system that adds more objectives to the game as if you so choose.

Main Features -
  • Fully custom triggered heroes each with unique spells
  • Beautiful (Subjectively) anime inspired castle terrain
  • Shrine system
  • Fast pace focused gameplay, suitable for short matches
  • Custom (Not all C+P) Items, more being added each version
  • Simple AI by Valkemiere
  • Custom announcer (Gilgamesh, Fate/Unlimited Codes)
  • Fully custom soundsets for every hero, all unit ability sounds are 3D

Shrines
[​IMG]
Shrines are a capturable point on the map, 4 of them exist in the northwest, southwest, northeast and southeast forest.
At every 1 minute interval, if there is no shrine active on the map one will activate randomly, becoming capturable; To capture a shrine stand in the circle at the targeted point until the number reaches 100 for your team, more heroes mean shrines will capture quicker, however enemies can stand on it at the same time to prevent the number from going up.
Once a shrine is captured a shrine sentinel is spawned for the team which will act as a vision giving unit and will attack nearby enemies, for the time that the shrine is alive you will generate Dragon Vein Power, which is signified by a number above your teams power crystal; once the DVP reaches 100 your team will spawn a wave of strong siege creeps down the lane.
The enemy can destroy the shrine sentinel after it has spawned, giving them 10 DVP, so defend your sentinels to get the most out of them.

Changelog V0.2

-Two new heroes, Sasuke [Boruto Ver], Pest [Mondaijitachi]
-Shrine system improvement with boss summoning:
"New to 0.2 is the boss summoning system, in the centre arena of the map there are 4 circles of power that will light up when the corresponding shrine has been activated (E.g. NW Shrine activates the NW circle), once all four circles have been lit up Gilgamesh will spawn in the center of the map, when killed he will give a Gold bonus, give everyone a buff and drops the item "Flower of Immortality"."
Once the boss is defeated, the shrine sentinels will be destroyed and the system will reset."
-New CTF Mode:
"Capture the flag mode, it's a straightforward mode, you are placed in an arena with two opposite castles, enter the opponents castle and get their flag to yours to get a point, reach the point limit to win.
It's not that easy however, anyone holding the flag will constantly be hexed, each team can activate a forcefield around their castle to keep anyone in or out, and levers can be used to destroy bridges across the map to prevent passage."
-A tonne of bug fixes
-A tonne of rebalances to both heroes and gameplau
-Probably some more i forgot (I lost my changelog halfway through, but there's too much to go over, just think of this as a new map altogether)

    Err, so the map show up blank when i'm choosing it on the custom maps, like there's no Team 1 Team 2 thing, that's strange because the alpha works fine for me. You sure this map works for patches lower than 1.29?

    It's difficult to properly read the text on the loading screen because of the image.
    I think you might be able to remove the Select User in the Tavern altogether, or hide it somehow.
    Might want to shorten that hero cooldown.
    The camera should be on the hero after selecting one, not centering the shops. The hero was somewhere out of the screen to the south.
    Terrain layout isn't impressive. It's straightforward/linear and lanes are close each other.

    Overall, a cute Anime DotA which mostly need work on hero balance. Very important to know what items also do to them, how movement and attack speed are affected as differences between agility, strength and intelligence heroes.

    Awaiting Update.

    Thanks for the review, i'll take it all in to consideration when working on the next vers.

    As for the map, i do have plans to expand it and add extra mechanics but yeah as is it's indeed very basic

    Tested about 4 or 5 heroes while playing. Here is my review:

    Terrain - 4/5 (looks great but there some areas that could use some work like the bottom side of the map on the third lane, if you move the camera a little bit more down, the cliff actually covers everything. Also some trees are penetrating some of the walls.)
    Items - 5/5 (basic and advanced items, work well with the heroes)
    Spells - 5/5 (beautiful effects used, good synergy between the spells of each hero and most importantly, no giant effect spamming as in any other anime map)
    Heroes - 5/5 (Rem and Ram are my favorite, that duo hero thing; I like that you made their voice set based on the anime)
    Gameplay - 5/5 (Neat and enjoyable, the AI seems good enough for singleplayer testing too; what should be changed a bit, are the towers's damage, in early game they look like one shot from them can instakill a hero but a creep not?)

    -What needs to be improved : multiboard - the numbers are not aligned with the description of "kills" ; "deaths".
    hero selection - It would be nice if the hero will be auto-selected after you pick him/her.

    Overall, although you put the "beta" mark on this map, it doesn't look like that. My rating from me is 5/5 + 4 reputation points. Aside from all those anime maps, I enjoyed playing yours a lot. P.S. This AoS anime map is better than DON Battlestadium in my opinion :D

    So where can I suggest more characters? Can you put EVA-01 or Jotaro Kujo in the map?

    Well most discussion goes on at the facbook page, as for those two, Eva-01 will just be plain awkward so it'll take a good skillset, Jotaro is basically already considered i may add him soon

    Starting work on CTF mode's first map, as i said before somewhere this map isn't solely AOS, i intend to make multiple modes with multiple maps that is choosable at map initialisation.
    This map will feature a lava based map, with traps that are usable (Destroying bridges, forcefield for flag, jump pads, flame traps and such, each with cooldown), all just what i have in mind atm but yeah

    Keep working :) It's nice to see so much devotion for your map. Have you thought about including other characters from popular anime? Naruto and Dragon Ball Z are good examples.

    Mainstream series are always considered, it's a matter of getting models mostly and making a nice skillset, I've been planning an UI Goku for a while just a matter of execution, Naruto wise, he's got so many similar abilties and so many powerups it's kinda hard putting the right things in to a skillset

    Not that hard. But will be great. I'd love to play as Sasuke or as Vegeta (my favorite ones) :D I know it takes time with an AoS, but it's great when you achieve great things in it :D
