Battle of the Eastern Kingdoms AoS

Version 0.42 - Major Game Play Modifications

Since version 0.42, I have done some major changes in the landscape and the overall gameplay. Before version 0.42, the three main lanes were to narrow for massive creep spawning. Therefore, I had to modify the whole landscape. The lanes are now large enough to let pass a lot of creeps at the same time. Furthermore I now introduced a jungle game play à la LoL. The woods between the lanes are now larger with more access points. I also added more neutral creep spawn points. Creeps will now re-spawn every 20 seconds and will continue dropping items after reviving again (this was a huge bug in the precedent versions). I moreover added a Boss Fight system with three big neutral boss creeps. Killing one of them will grant the killing team a huge gold bonus and an additional special bonus that lasts 60 seconds.



Battle of the Eastern Kingdoms

Whole Map
[​IMG]

Here you can see the new map landscape. The lanes are larger and the jungles are more jungle-like :)

Genre: "Altered" AOS
Players: 10 players (up to 5 vs. 5)
Average Game Duration: between 15 and 60 minutes

The Game

The game is easy to understand. You pick a hero and a race. You construct buildings, that spawn units and that will attack the enemy base automatically. Level up your

hero and try to destroy the enemy team's castle. That's it ;-)

Features

AoS Game Play - Units spawn regularly in your base and attack the enemy base. Like in so many other AoS-maps the goal is to destroy the enemy main building, which is in the case a castle.

Castle Fight Game Play - At the beginning of the map, before choosing your hero, you can select a race. Each race has its own units, its own traininghalls and its own special building. You can up-grade up to Tech-4 spawning enabling you to spawn some extremely powerful and giant units.

Boss Fights - I added the League of Legends "Boss Fight"-Game play. In the map, there are three boss spawn points. These bosses are giant creeps with massive damage and hitpoints. It is pretty hard to get one of them down. And as usual, team play is required. "Loki" is the boss of fire. Killing him

grants all your team's units a 40% Llifesteal ability that lasts for 60 seconds. Killing "Brutos" grants your team's units a 25% attack and movement speed bonus for 60 seconds. "Okeanos" is the god of oceans and getting him down makes mighty Sea Giants spawn in your base, fighting for your team.

Castle Spells - Each kill gives you gold and lumber. Lumber can be used to cast so called 'Castle Spells'. Your team's castle is able to cast some really mighty spells in exchange for lumber. Due to this spells, this game, I dare say, is well balanced, because even if the enemy army is bashing your base, you always can save your-self by using those mighty spells.

Areas - In each of the three lanes, there are 2 areas for each team. When you conquer an area, it increases your army by either one footman or one archer for each area. Additionally, areas grant armor and damage bonus to allied units. If there is a difference between the amount of areas owned by the two
teams, the team having less areas gets an increased gold income.

Variable Game Settings - The host can change the most important game options: regular income (yes/no; how much...), hero experience rate (from 60% to 140%), Food Limit (each building needs one food, so the host can set how many buildings each player is able to build), start gold and start lumber.

Bounty System - Each kill your hero increases his or her bounty. When he or she gets killed by an enemy hero, the killing hero's owner will get your hero's bounty.

Item Craft Sytem - It has already become a standard feature of most AoS. You can purchase Receipts to craft items by combining other items.


Races & Screenshots of the Game

I created races one of them you can choose at the beginning of the map, before selecting your hero. Each race is different and has advantageous and drawbacks.
List of Races

[​IMG]

Here you can you choose one of the available races (or a random race).

[​IMG] Alliance of Benders - A mighty race that allows you to spawn elemantal units like water or ocean elementals, phoenixes, stone golems, etc.

[​IMG] Ancients - This race is composed of extremly mighty tank units that are expensive but strong.

[​IMG] Burning Legion - Very expensive and slow-spawning

units. But all of them have chaos damage which gives them an important advantage when facing divin-armor units.

[​IMG] Humans - The standard race of all AoS games. Quite balanced.

[​IMG] Engines - The mechanical race. All of their units are

mechanical type units, which makes them unvulnerable against a lot of organic based spells. Most of them have less hitpoints but divin armor.

[​IMG] Naga - With the humans the second standard race. Quite balanced but at

the middle game kind of strong thanks to their lord of the tides.

[​IMG] Skeletons - The rushing race. Some of their units spawn in

double-teams. They have less lifepoints but in mass, especially during the eraly game, they are really strong.

[​IMG] Ancients - This race is composed of extremly mighty tank units

that are expensive but strong.

    Hey, I tested this map on single player, here's a review!

    The good points of the map:
    -The system of the host setting the resources and aspects of the map is great
    -A wide variety of heroes to choose from :D
    -Terrain of the map is very cool
    -Many items you can buy from the many shops
    -The portals are very convenient
    -Instead of destroying the Control Stone, the enemy player takes over it

    The bad points of the map:
    -I was very lost and I didn't know what to do other than the skills the heroes pick using their hero attribute
    -I didn't know a farm would become a tower (but actually a troop spawn, not a tower!)
    -The farms couldn't be built outside the base, it should've been stated that they can only be built in base
    -After upgrading the farm into a tower (or a footman spawner) you can do nothing else)
    -Suddenly I couldn't build any more farms, possibly to a limit but it wasn't stated
    -Heroes are quite useless, they can't fight against the normal troops
    -Troops are too powerful and the Control Stones are too weak!

    Here's how I played the map: I built 6 farms in the middle, made them into the footmen spawner and the middle lane was full of my footmen which became an undefeatable force. I used my Hero to fight against troops but they need to be supported by troops. Game ended quick.

    Here are many suggestions: You should make the game more user-friendly, I got lost easily, didn't know what to do until about 5 minutes? When I clicked the Build button on my hero there were many spells, it shouldn't be there. Upgrades should also fall under another category and the farm isn't necessary, you should directly show the "towers" to be built, like in Castle Fight. They shouldn't be towers too, as they can't attack anyway, they should be normal buildings. To me the items and hero were useless, I just kept on making lots of troops! By the way, I didn't know how to earn gold and lumber, killing enemy units didn't give them, only time does? Those neutral creeps are there only for the hero's exp and also holding back passing by troops?

    Quite a decent map, but there are many things to be improved on, especially the categorisation. It's a bit odd having items, heroes and uncontrollable troops spawn (like in castle fight) altogether, a lot of balancing is really needed. Map is playable, so I approve it but rate it 3/5. Please improve so I can raise my rating, the map seems far from complete, it needs a better system of gameplay. Also, the description could be more colourful and have boxes, tables and more different sized fonts to be more attractive and interesting. Well, that's all from me for now!

    About My Reputations:

    [​IMG] My complements for the Maker/s of the map's game.

    [​IMG] Were I explain your map needs to get fix or make an improvement of your work.


    Overview
    Gameplay

    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    [​IMG] The Game was cool, not much to explain here but your game needs more features.

    Playability

    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    [​IMG] The Game becomes boring when played a lot of times, would it be nice if you can add more heroes and stuff? that would be great if you ask me.

    Terrain

    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    [​IMG] The Terrain was fine, and I don't see anything bad but it will be great if you can reshape it a little, you know, add more cool environments in the game.

    Managing

    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    [​IMG] I see you lack taste for an AOS game, you see, creep camps must be the ones that can help you out when getting owned by enemy players and also a key role for you to earn gold fast, but to my observations, you don't have a creep respawn system, apply it for your game since its a must, the Team 1's middle creep wave are few, I mean only 2 creeps comes out, is that a bug? I guess not, and the items are few, same goes to the heroes, add more if you will, and finally, the wierd spell for all of the heroes, I don't understand how to use it. its too complex for an ordinary player, mind if you can decrease its difficulty and fix it? hope you can understand.

    Bug/s

    Again about the wierd spell for all heroes in the game, when you go inner of it, you don't control your hero anymore, that was an odd experience, hope you can fix it dude.

    @Orcnet: Thank you for your review. Apparently I lack experience in AoS even though I really try hard to make it better. I have still not found any idea to improve the menu spell for all heroes you were talking about and that many people were complaining about as well. I will try to fixe it. And don't worry ;-) I will add a lot more heroes than that. It's just that I don't have enough time to do it right now ^^

    Ha! Funny enough a friend of me told me the same. I didn't know how they called bending in english avatar the last airbender when I created the race. Coincidence.

    Yeah, when I got some time, i will add a tech-tree.

    Instead of adding crow form to sheep god each time he jump give it and remove it one time when he is created and it will work without bug.

    "Alliance of Benders" is a really fun name once you realize what "bender" means in british slang.
