Host map Arrange game
This map is attempt to continue that map. I am new author - Velociraptor has given me open-source.

AoS style-map with very,very many items and heroes. You can launch unlimited computer bots with -b and -c commands in single-player mode.

You know about MUGEN fighting engine? Which creates 2D Characters from all fightings in only one game? So Battle for Souls - attempt to create MUGEN in the world WarCraft III, for AoS-Style maps, and not only. All games in only one game. And you can change it, as you want.
You can always find OPEN-SOURCE version of that very big map on official site. But I CAN'T now help with any problems with open or save Open-Source, because don't know how.

Story

The bloody fight of Darkness and Light does not stop never. She goes always - even in your own souls. Choose, on which side are you?
You are true adept of Light? You know, what is angry also of gloom should be always punished? You know, what higher of all are friendship, trust, love and kindness? You understand, what any meanness early or late will reveal? What secret always becomes obvious and there is nothing the more dearly present friends and liked, against which always it is possible to lean? What the most important treasures - kind heart and pure conscience?
Or you are warrior of Darkness? You agree that Light adepts are stupids and fools? What for trust always pay in a deceit? What the present friends no, and all is done only for the sake of personal benefit? What there is no love, and there are only corporal instincts multiplied by vanity and complacency? What main are personal self-perfection? What strong is always right? What for one million gold coins any in a convenient situation throws the knife in a back to the one whom yesterday named by the friend?
You have made this choice? Now you should battle for YOUR SIDE!
All warriors of the opposite party must DIE! Choose YOUR way to victory.

    What is "God" heroes? All heroes in game are free to-play and can be picked from taverns (God of Twilight, Enchanting God, for example, are heroes with "God" with their name, but they are usually heroes, like all others). If you about alternate avatars, you can move your hero near your Circle and click on "Change skin".

    Dude, this AoS can't be played in multiplayer anymore, because you can't host maps that are bigger than 8 mb, you should reduce the map size to 8 mb, otherwise it can only be played in single player.

    Plasma Boy, read "Netplay Instructions".
    It isn't hard to do that one time, if you like my map. I play with my peoples through Garena.
    I anyway can't be in 8 mb limit more, because i want alternate avatars with different models, sounds; and many other features.

    Fair enough, although it would be nice to be able to play it in multiplayer without hacking the game, but I understand your reasons to keep that size.

    I play just in single-player now, i say, project is freezed. I really need to relax after big and hard development and think about create Battle for Souls not as map, but as game (in a converted and changed WarCraft III). I has many great hero, items and modes ideas, and also want alternate "maps" (terrains) for battle with all heroes (like HoN and LoL has different maps for battles). BFS now has just two different terrains - for English and Russian versions. She has many modes, that can compensate this lack, but anyway project now must be more, than just a "map".
    But, because donations was small, I can't do that fast now, although really want it. So, I repeat, project is freezed. When information will be, I will tell about it.

    Thanks a lot again. Battle for Souls now has not more than 20% of my ideas! Even now my brain creates new ideas of heroes, i can't stop it. :D
    For example, i played today in Kirby game on Game Boy Advance, so now i want Kirby in Battle for Souls! And i has idea for her spell pack. And i has model from Hive Workshop, her author in Credits now, for other models. But when can i do it?!
    I want to collect all great ideas from all games and create all my ideas, for ULTIMATE MULTIVERSE!
    All that i want - help not just with words. Even minor donations can help. Unless I has less time for development...

    But I can't eat just good reviews about my map. And anyway i need time to relax at least without "active" actions. ^^ And thinking about reconstructions of project.

    Have great fun in single-player now!
    (Use -exton and -b and -c commands).
