Assault the Throne (2.3)

This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
Assault The Throne

Based on Starcraft II's "Co-Op Commanders" mode.

Up to 4 players unite against the Scourge in this classic Strategy map.
The game automatically saves your experience, unlocking new units, upgrades and abilities as you play the map again in future. No save code required!

This map is Reforged Only.

Gameplay Video:

Assault the Throne is a 2-4 Player Co-Operative strategy game.

Players select from a variety of custom races, and together have to defeat the huge Undead presence on the map. Destroying bases gives the players XP, which is automatically saved and carries forward to your next game.

Resource Gathering is not necessary in this map - you get gold automatically, but can capture gold mines from the undead to get more resources. The secondary resource, Crystal, can be obtained by destroying undead bases or defeating the attacking undead.

The Undead will attack the players every Night. Each night is stronger than the last, so don't just sit back and defend!

Additionally, Frostmourne will "Awaken" after 15 minutes. When it does, it's game over! Destroying bases though will delay the Awakening, so make sure to go on the offensive during the day.

Once the game is completed (either you win, or lose) your XP is saved for future games - unlocking new units, upgrades and passive bonuses, allowing you to take on higher difficulty modes.

Other Features:

If you want a bit of randomization or an extra challenge, you can vote to activate up to 3 Mutators. Each one added increases the difficulty of the game in a fairly random way, and provides and extra 20% experience per mutator.
For more detail, see the "Mutator" Tab of the Assault the Throne General Information Guide.

When you reach level 10 on any race, you can reset that race back to level 1, and gain a "Prestige" level.
Prestige is account wide - so once you have it, its benefits apply to all races.

With Prestige, you gain access to the Mercenary Camp which can be built once you've upgraded your main base to the second tier in any game.
There are 12 unique mercenaries, and for each prestige level you have, you can access a random mercenary for that game. For example, if you have 2 Prestige levels, you will get 2 random Mercenaries.

Mercenaries are powerful, 1-unit limited special units that often provide unique bonuses to your army. For more information, check the "Merceneries" tab of the Assault the Throne General Information Guide.


Current Features:
- 7 Unique Races Company of Heroes, Crusaders, Demons, Gaia, Naga, Nerubian, Trolls.
- 20+ Randomized Mutators
- Over 50 different basic enemies and 16 different enemy heroes - randomized at the beginning of each game.
- 4 Difficulty Modes (Easy, Normal, Hard, Extreme) with an additional bonus difficulty mode for those who really grind out the map's XP curve.
- Prestige System - if you reach level 10 on a race, you can reset back to level 1 and gain account-wide access to special Neutral units.
- No base game abilities! All spells and abilities are completely custom!
- 40+ Unique random neutral items obtainable throughout the game.
- Automatic real world Date/Time detection, granting special bonuses on each day of the week.

Nourish Young ability for Scorpions/Deathclasps now shows the correct requirement. Just a visual fix.
Magebane Charm no longer heals mechanical units.

New item: Greatflame Core.

New Tier 3 Unit: Eruptor.

Bug Fixes
Throne Assaulter's Holy Light works now.
Druidic Talon correctly gives +9 damage.
Naga Race Level 2 bonus correctly gives 3 Murloc Warriors.

This is a "no going back" update. Once you have played 2.3, you must continue on new or same versions.

Reduced damage of Acid Rupture mutator. No longer triggers from Undead Raiders' units.

Hydra Figurine is much cheaper.

Fragment of Kil'jaeden is much cheaper.

Eruptor (Tier 3) has significantly more damage.
New Undead Units: Rejection (T1), Manifestation (T2), Coalescence (T3), Blightsteel Automaton (T4), Terror (T4), Soulsteel Legionnaire (T5), Acherus Construct (T5)

New items: Ecliptic Gem, Book of the Damned

An interesting idea, but I think some screenshots and a list of mutators would be nice.
Also, does it work somewhat like melee, or are there custom objectives?
Adding this info might make it more interesting for people to try out :smile:

So it works mainly like a melee game, but with no resource gathering - you can capture extra gold mines to get more resources.
There's no special objectives (yet), but I might add them in future. The main objective is just to destroy Frostmourne, but there's many optional bases you can destroy for more XP.

I'll add some more detail to the front page perhaps.

As for the mutators, I'll list the names, but the effects I want to keep secret - they're supposed to be a surprise.

Updated to 1.2

Most notable changes are an experience bonus when playing on Friday, Saturday or Sunday (yep, it can detect the real world date now!) a -clear command to get rid of text on the screen, ally level/race information, 4 new mutators and 4 new neutral items.

Having an issue the last couple days, when we play, the game will crash someone around when night time starts. Happens every time. Not sure what could be causing it. Used an older and the newest version.

It helps to restart your WC3 client before playing. Also increasing your PC's pagefile or physical storage space usually works.

Unfortunately, this is not something I can fix at all - it's all because of the way that Blizzard's Lua cleans up garbage data. Or rather, how badly it cleans up that data.

And as you can see, it's pretty random -- even older versions will suddenly start crashing you, even if they didn't before.

My hope is that now, 2.2.4 will be the last version of the map.
Unless the Editor decides to yet again, do completely random stuff like dropping items outside of player's bases for no reason.

Damn I'm tired fighting the editor all day.

EDIT: Alright, bets on for 2.2.5 being the true last version.

Great map! but can we expect a singleplayer or ai in future updates? I understand why progress shouldn't be saved on singleplayer mode, but is it possible to seperate exp and progress on a singleplayer account from a multiplayer account in a future update? so what would happen then is you can save progress on a singleplayer account, but that account would be locked from multiplayer mode and that you would need a multiplayer account to save progress on the same mode. I am curious as to what your thoughts are on this!

It is possible, but an awful lot of work.

If you want to try out singleplayer, you can launch the game in LAN and join the game with yourself, then leave with the second account. This prevents cheat codes, but allowing all progress.

Also I really encourage you to play online with other players - there's plenty of people over on my discord, and the game is ultimately designed for 4 people.
