    Meh, i accidentally pressed close window so the review might be smaller.
    It was lagless and download was pretty fast.
    Maybe add some instructions, i was like wth to do ad the start.
    The camera was an interesting addition, good job on that.
    I liked the ''buy spells with esc'' thing, making it more original.
    The terrain was fine, but could be improved, you know, the blizzard cliffs...
    Maybe add more modes? It's a really good game.

    I shall rate this map 3/5 and vote for Approval.

    Thanks for the review :D

    I am not a fan of blizzard cliffs either. Unfortunately, they are necessary for the FP camera to follow at the correct height :(

    lol, similar to the comment you posted on theHelper :D

    Keep in mind though - When I first posted the map on this site, I was working on updating the map, not explaining it. I have done a lot of revision to the description and other information since then. So those haters had reason to dislike the description o_O

    I would suggest renaming this map so something more unique. Currently there is another project made by KelThuzad named Assasins as well. :p Maybe make the name original....Original names tend to be remembered while Chaos, footman, Defense, Random 4 letter word tends to be forgotten....maybe name it to like Dawn of the Assassins (crap name)....or something...be original.

    Downloading map now :p
    ....


    You should state somewhere that you can only pick two skills of a certain type :p....

    also the special skills is impossible to get :p 25 of the blue stuff ...i mean really :p...

    The camera gets annoying sometimes but I guess thats okay and part of the whole assasins theme ....Maybe let it turn faster

    i blindly bought items and then realized that my item can be upgraded by buying gloves :p....also you need to say what the upgrade does.....Also the upgraded agility sword says buy another....so to my disappointment you not only need to buy another sword but also upgrade that sword to get the upgrade. So make the upgrade requirements clear. Also state what can be upgraded how many times.

    Also state what effect your race will have when picking a hero.

    Add AI else people can't test it without hosting. AI will also be super easy to create.

    Add potions like healing salves :p (maybe)

    Idea: Add shadow meld to your heroes.

    Also the gem of true sight is rather cheep for rendering all invis abilities useless.

    Also sentry wards are useless since your camera is locked to your hero :p

    EDIT : Omw :p how could I miss the fact that the map has AI :p clearly i can't read.....

    Responses to KYTON
    that is a good point. I was considering renaming the map because two more maps have been named Assassins on epicwar since I released v3.1 :(

    good idea, I'm thinking about adding a map description into the loading screen so people can figure out how to play before the game starts

    true, ability points are awarded based on intelligence, so if you used an AGI or STR hero, it was probably hard to reach 25.

    you can disable that camera mode by typing -fpoff
    also wards reveal invisible units so they aren't completely useless in -fpon mode

    yeah, the weapon upgrades are kind of hard to follow the first time you play, but they are pretty easy to remember.

    the race really has no bearing on how your hero performs. I just needed a way to break up the different heroes once I went past 12 heroes.

    AI already exists as do potions.

    maybe, I had an item that did that in one of the first versions. I didn't really like it.

    gem drops on death. I don't really think the price is low considering this.
    Thanks for the opinions. +REP

    I played again and....

    The AI should only run if they have a faster or the same ms than the person they are running from :p....once you have the fastest boots you get tons of free kills...the ai should also invest in an't invis items if there are a lot of people with invis abilities :p...since the ability that give you permenant invis unless you attack is ubsurd if not cancelled....

    Edit 2: Also if ai are effected by difficulties please state so....

    also the awards are great

    Add
    • [b][/b] [u][/u] [SIZE="6"][/SIZE]
    and some color to your description :p ...look at some of the other maps for ideas. Your map's description is what gets downloads...its like advertising you can have a great map...but if you have a mediocre description people won't download it.

    Edit 3: Add abilities that can be dodged. It will make the map more fun....also add Shadowmeld to all heroes....also make the perma invis ability that you can't cast it in combat ...else you can escape from all encounters....

    yeah, I know the AI needs improvement. It is very basic at the moment.

    AI is not affected by difficulty.

    Good idea, I added formatting to the description.

    New version up! it features 4 new heroes, "capture the flag" mode, and the creeps now get stronger over time.

    Enjoy!

    played it a couple of times and i think its a fun game. some thoughts..

    1. a bit more effects would really improve the game, try adding fog, somewhat darker tinted to match the theme of the map. a lil bit of rain would also look nice.

    2. change the camera and set it higher, some spells have a very long reach and sometimes it just doesnt fit in the screen. *like the hook spell which goes for 2k range*

    3. maybe change some spells to make them avoidable, like the kunai, for more realistic gameplay. for balancing, you can try to make them deal more damage.

    4. some heroes are way too BIG. you should try rescaling the models.

    5. more items/combinations and consumables.


    game mode suggestions:
    CTF: spawn two/towers near the flag with truesight to avoid camping. maybe set it to have very high armor, high hp, avg damage.

    a mode where a 2 teams fight per round. a round is finished when a team kills all members of the opposing team. there will be no respawns during the round, all players respawn at their respective bases at the start of every round. no creeps spawn during this mode.

    1. good idea, I will add in random weather effects. I'm thinking a lightning storm would be cool, with random damaging lightning :D

    2. are you talking about the first-person camera or the third person camera?

    3. good idea, it would be more fun to be able to dodge the abilities; it would a another level of depth to the game.

    4. that is something I've been meaning to do for a while. the next version is a good time to do it (because all the heroes are already rebalanced in that version)

    5. that is a work in progress. I'm trying to focus on game mechanics and balancing before I put a lot of time into items. but that is a good suggestion.

    game mode suggestions:
    CTF: that is an excellent idea. the CTF is VERY new, as in, just added to the latest version. I am thinking I could even make half of the map visible to one team and the other half visible to the other team: maybe even put up some sort of dividing line.

    I like this suggestion too, but how do I keep the teams from becoming seriously imbalanced after the first round. the winning team will have more experience :/
    Hmm, maybe the people who aren't fightning in the middle can farm the creeps and the two teams fighting can be in an arena in the middle of the map or something o_O

    Great map man. I can't wait to play it in multiplayer. You should get a multi realm hosting bot :D 5/5

    Hey Baintastic, you may think that by me giving a review you'd say, "STFU and GTFO! Who are you anyway?" But I really want to review your map. So here.

    Good gameplay, hardly gets boring
    Unique Skills (Javelin's my favorite; for kill-stealing)
    Strong Items that pack quite a punch
    Strong Unique Skills

    Kinda weak AI; along with no items, but still fun to pick on
    Increase the kill limit, man! 75's not enough for the best assassins. Though I haven't played with someone else other than AI.
    Several unique skills that don't work or needs power-ups.

    My total rating: 4.5
    And Yes, to all those that will say, "Dude, the last post was like; back in December! Did you even know that?"
    Well, thanks for reading. I'm such a noob at map making.

    Good job though.
