Archer Stronghold v2.2 B

Submitted by Garthok
This bundle is marked as substandard. It may contain bugs, not perform optimally or otherwise be in violation of the submission rules.
Created by me. Save/Load system by MrMaestro. This is a hero defense map where you try to stop attackers from reaching a point. If they reach it you lose a life.

This map is unique from other hero defense maps because your hero has very low health, has a long range, and kills quickly, which means you have to use actual skill to avoid death and win. Many complain it is too hard or whatever but others and myself have beat it many times and do not find it too hard. Try harder and bring more people if you can't beat it the first time.

There is a solo mode that balances the monsters to be able to win alone, but it is not nearly as fun as having a full house.

The save/load system in this map only saves your kill count. Loading your code does not give you more gold, experience, or save your hero. When your kill count gets high enough you will have access to secret heroes.

    Hello and welcome to Archer Stronghold 2.1 B. This version features ashenvale terrain and is more eye candy than 2.1 A but maybe not as tactical. Both are mostly equily balanced and I hope you will play both. Archer Stronghold is designed to be played on Bnet and should not be attempted on 1 player. Has Save/Load feature to load kills, which will in time earn you secret heroes.

    EDIT: Updated the map and fixed a bug where it just didn't show any of the players.

    EDIT 2: Archer Stronghold 2.1 A was a variation and had completely different terrain and some different heroes... should I not upload it anyway?

    Overall it seemed like a fun and well done game, but the creeps are damn annoying, they're set to run passed you and not think a damn thing of your hero & troops. Aka this is more like a TD with Heros and Mercs. :mad:

    Well if you choose defense mode they dont attack you, choosing siege mode will make them attack you. :wink:

    Im awarding this map the Director's Choice Award for it overall fun factor and variety. Plenty of otions to choose from, including different playing fields, offense/defense option, difficulty levels for all levels of experienced gamers or numbers of players, suburb terrain, fairly well balanced, fun gameplay, good triggering, and forces players to use unique strategies. All the while with reasonbable file size, easy for obtaining a full-house on b.net. Overall great work.

    Regarding the other map: if it really is a completely different map, unsimilar to this, I'd suggest doing more then simply giving it a different version number. Otherwise there's no wey to tell thats its a different map then this one, and would make it only appear to be an obsolete version of this map to people browsing.

    Only bug I found so far: Seems like the (short range)archer and hippogryph rider's sounds sets have been mixed up.

    Sounds like an interesting map. A good map seems rare these days. Too many clones running around. I'll try this out tonight and post comments later.

    I think it's alittle too hard, even in easy difficulty, and especially when playing on the left side.
    Also it would be nice with more space on the right side, because we had to kill eachothers spawned archers to get to the frontline.
    It's a fun map though, I'll give it a 4

    Ah I am most honored. Yes the map is supposed to be difficult to make it not get boring too fast. As for getting clogged up the Unblock item you start with can help, but not if the clog is too big.

    Another "TheWarCenter.com" map that is awarded with Director's Choice, this makes 5 I believe.

    TheWarCenter.com maps that you may have played:

    - Defense of the Ancients (original by Eul)
    - Battle of the Gods (original by Digimajik)
    - Megalith (original by Archael)
    - FFDX (original by Squallish)

    Expect to see many more quality maps from TheWarCenter.com!

    Well when you play by yourself, which I assume you're doing, it will be impossible. I've beaten it over 10 times in a normal bnet game. Just don't die and stay together.

    Update: Version 2.2 B

    Changes:

    Solo Mode: Automatically turns on when only one player is playing, making it beatable with one person. (Right side is easier, try it first)

    New Secret Hero: At 2000 kills you can earn the final secret hero, Elune's Advisor, a very fun hero to play in my opinion.

    Balances: Health adjustments for some waves, made elementalist (secret hero) have much stronger skills,and added mana and health potions.

    Have Fun

    Please explain your problems in more detailed manners.

    An example would be;

    I'm having a difficulty downloading this map. I really want to play it, but I can't download it. The problem seems to occur at #%...

    or something like that. ^_^

    The Save/Load code was made by MrMaestro (sorry if I forgot you in the credits!) and has a few bugs in loading sometimes. Repeat your code a couple times if the first time doesn't work, that's what I do anyway. I've only had one code out of 10+ codes that hasn't worked.

    @tjohnbridge - As for downloading error sounds like a wc3sear.ch problem with your computer or something, give me your email address and I'll mail it to you.
