Map Info


The Grand Strategy Sandbox RPG of this game come from the fact that you spawn into this world with in a randomly selected location with no clue about your surrounding other than the layout.

You are immediately faced with the choice of picking your faction, which in turns gives you a ton of choices later on how you want the faction to play like. On your first play-through you may end up as the Mage-Empire of controlling the North Kingdoms or the you may end up as the Dwarven-Giant Vikings from the Land of the South Seas with different units available for you.
Now while you shit your pants thinking about the amount of failures you can do within the first minute of gameplay you should instead explore your surroundings and build your first base, if your lucky you may find a player nearby who wants you as their ally, or you could be unlucky to find a trio of pros ready to gank your sorry ass.

The game offer a semi-advance introduction, the will ask you if you need help and if you accept it will tell you over the time of the game the tips for the faction you picked. It will check what faction you took and only give advice on that faction.

The lands you will explore in this game is not the regular static zones you find in other games, the land actually affects your units in positive or negative ways. You enter a zone which is snowy and cold, this could mean that your soldiers freezes and have a lower movement speed than normal or you may enter a desert which due to lower amount of food and water makes your units regenerate health slower.
Not only that but you can capture Artifacts around the world that will positively effect you in some way, everything from the Water Temple which grants you sight of the island it is built upon, the surrounding waters and a movement speed buff to all units including naval ones if they are close enough. Or you may find the White Tower which grants your units with a strong mana regeneration aura which cowers 25% of the map. Some of these Wonders are tied together with events like the Iron Throne which requires you to capture certain objectives to open up its power, everything to summon a demi-Hero to your side to change the flow of the map by alternating the zones themselves.

Heroes are also a very important part of this map, they are the leaders of your custom faction and can make or break your strategy. All Heroes are carefully made with combos and fun in mind, if they aren't fluid they are to be removed or changed for the positive. In the future there will be videos to showcase the power of well used Heroes.


TL;DR


This game refer itself as a "Grand Strategy Sandbox RPG"
Custom and changeable factions, meaning you can play the same faction as your ally but have totally different units.
The game offers intrigue in the ways of open alliances.
Zones may affect the overall health of your units.
There are great artifacts that you can capture to help you dominate the other players.
Heroes are important, I have made effort to make them fun.
Custom Naval Warfare, it is very different from other warcraft maps.

    Do not be afraid to criticize the map.

    Edit:
    This page was made in a rush, I will correct and make the format a bit nicer tomorrow.

    Lovely description. It seems like the map's category, despite it not being Azeroth Wars, should be Strategy / Risk from my understanding of the description.

    Cheers Linkin.

    He said that he would play the map last year, but I told him to wait until the map gets good. We haven't contacted each other since, and I haven't planned to contact him atm.

    Feels more right if he tries it out of his own curiosity rather than on request.

    So this minor balance patch I wanted to release won't be coming. Instead I found myself with a pretty decent sized patch coming around the same time as the old one was planned. 1.1.01 will feature new improved terrain on Eastern Kingdom, a new naval unit called the Highwind Totem and a few key balance changes that will change of some units play.

    I will try to release a image tomorrow on how the new terrain will look like. Zug zug.

    Here are a few images on how the current terrain looks like on Eastern Kingdom. No fancy camera angles or camera heights, this is how it will look while you play.

    The Lack of Divercity on Outland/Dranor is kinda disturbing,but the way you make Silithus green and blackrock area cold is REALLY FUCKING GREAT,also fyi the Crystalsong forest in Northern should be filled with crystal or crystal like tree i guess..

    Now all you need is to include Broken Isles,Quel-danis isle? (isles near Quel-thalas),Kezan(goblin),Tol-Barad and Alcaz and Maelstrom and it'll be the best Azeroth MAP EVER!!

    This map is pretty cool but I have a question:

    Some researches require some "future patch", what does this mean? Do I have to install some maps to research the researches?

    I just played your map a little and gained some impressions:

    1) You used the fog doodad excessively, wherefore some regions have quite the fps drop, especially when paired with custom camera distance. It surely looks nice, but playability is more important, if you ask me.

    2) The application of many abilities is not made directly clear, talking about heroes for example and have seemingly unnecessary long texts. I admire your effort, but, if i'm not mistaken, such things take away from approachability, which is important, even more for new maps.

    Again, very nice terrain and one can easily see the huge effort you put into this project.

    Want my personal opinon 5/5.
    1. point on the high ress terrain.
    2. point on the high ress unit models and icons.
    3. point on upgrades and units.
    4. point on the places where doodads are placed.
    and 5. point for making gameplay awesome with only 3 races(even if ones isnt finished).
