  • Information

    Champions Trial is a team-oriented Hero Survival for up to 4 players; the difficulty of the game changes automatically depending on how many players are playing.
    As a team, the players will fight against an infinite amount of enemy waves and Guardians (boss encounters) until they're overwhelmed and defeated. The map has an automatic restart-system, so no need to remake after a defeat!

    The map features a Highscore-system that automatically saves and loads data between players, without any input needed.
    The Highscore system (called Champions Highscore) is always keeping track on the highest highscore between players and will display this Highscore in the game.

    This is the main goal for the players, to try to beat the current Champions Highscore.

    There's currently two different Game Modes available: Random Trial (each player get a random hero and abilities are given at random) and All Pick (player may select hero and abilities).


    Gameplay

    Depending on the selected Game Mode, each new round every player will get a new Hero. You're then able to purchase "Ability Orbs" in order to gain abilities (most default Wc3 abilities are included and some custom ones).

    Any ability can be upgraded and/or unlearned if needed, at a cost of Gold and/or Ability Point(s) (lumber).

    Items are equally important as abilities. There's over 100 items between several different categories; most of them have powerful and custom effects that will improve your Hero in various ways!
    This will let you build your Hero in any way, regarding of what Hero and/or abilities you get. The difficult part is to find a good synergy between both.

    During the gameplay hordes of enemies will spawn (waves) and will try to defeat the players.
    The enemies that spawn are completely random each wave and they gain health, mana, damage and armor after every wave.

    Every 5th wave a randomly selected Guardian (boss) will spawn.
    This is a difficult encounter and not a pushover. Each Guardian has up to 3 custom mechanics and abilities that the players have to react to.
    This will put the teams current strength up to a real test.

    If the players manage to defeat a Guardian it will permanently buff the future enemy creeps that spawn, with an unique power related to the killed Guardian. This will make it harder for the players to keep up and have more things to keep a lookout for.

    All Guardians and their mechanics are listed in the tab above (and in-game).

    Whenever the players are defeated the Champions Highscore-system will check if the players managed to beat the current Highscore. If they did, the Highscore is saved and overwrites the current Champions Highscore.




  • A Guardian will spawn every 5th wave, a challenging encounter with dangerous mechanics.
    Whenever a Guardian is defeated, it will permanently buff the enemy creeps with one of its powers. The mechanic/ability that has an "X" is the power enemy creeps will gain when buffed.

    Guardians are resistant (and in some cases immune) to most debuffs and stun-effects, reducing the duration of those effects by 50%.


    Voltronax, the Arcane Monstrosity
    - (X) Will spawn Volatile Arcane Orbs that has to be killed within 9 seconds before they explode.
    - A random player will get targeted by a Starfall-zone (a red circle on the ground), move out or you will take damage.
    - Voltronax will drain 6% mana from all players every second over 3 seconds.

    Molganath, Lord of Fire
    - Spawns 3 Molten Minions every now and then that will attack players.
    - (X) When a non-guardian enemy dies, it will explode after 3 seconds, dealing massive damage.
    - A huge wall of fire will spawn from east or west. Find an opening or be consumed.

    Demo'vilesh, the Hellish Torturer
    - (X) Will bind two tortured minions from hell with a fiery chain. If you move through the chain you will take damage.
    - All players will get surrounded by fire, move constantly over 3 seconds to remove it, or take increasing damage.
    - Demo'vilesh burst with fire every 6th second, dealing more damage the lesser health she has.

    A'er, Guardian of Winds
    - (X) Will summon tornadoes that will drag players towards them. The force is stronger the closer you are.
    - A'er will do a massive wind attack, pushing all players infront of her backwards.
    - Summons a Wind Bomb; stand in the impact zone before it hits the ground to reduce the impact damage and radius!

    Cryllise, the Frostbitten Bonedragon
    - (X) Will place frost traps on the ground below all players. They take 3 seconds to activate.
    - A massive blizzard will surround Cryllise after 15 seconds, dealing constant area damage.

    Rotch, Embodiment of Gore
    - Bursts out gore that mini-stuns when hit initially and the gore will be left on the ground that slows movementspeed of enemies.
    - (X) Summons a Gore Maggot that will fixate on a random player. If the Gore Maggot reaches its target it will burrow inside the target and deal physical damage over 4 seconds. Can not be killed, but dies by itself after 7 seconds if it's unable to reach its target.
    - Bursts open two Blood Gates that are linked to eachother. If any enemy unit enters the Blood Gate it will take a small amount of damage and be teleported to the linked gate. The Blood Gates are closed after use.

    Grua, the Ravager
    - (X) Deep Wounds; 10% of any physical damage dealt will be applied as a Deep Wound if the damaged target has less than 80% health. The Deep Wound deals damage every second until the unit reaches above 80% health again to remove the effect.
    - Unleashes a massive roar that impales all enemies of Grua, dealing physical damage and stuns them for 1.4 seconds.
    - Grua pauses for a brief moment and then do a massive frontal swipe. Any enemy of Grua hit will take high physical damage and be knocked back a great distance.

    Yor'shajjza, Tempest of the Shath'Yar
    - (X) Gift of Yor'shajjza; targets a random creep and infuse it with powers of the Old Gods. The creep will get +25% increased damage and regenerate 3% maximum health every 3rd second.
    - Calls forth an illusion of a random player from another twisted realm. The Illusion takes 200% increased damage and deals 25% damage. It takes 5 seconds before the illusion is activated.
    When activated, Yor'shajjza will cast "Gift of Yor'shajjza" on the illusion. When the illusion is killed it will leave behind a Lost Soul that will force its way to Yor'shajjza. If the
    Lost Soul reaches Yor'shajjza it will heal Yor'shajjza for 5% of its maximum health.
    - When Yor'shajjza, Tempest of the Shath'Yar reaches 30% health it will Unleash its Tempest Storm. This storm deals constant area damage to all friendly and enemy units in the arena, except himself and Lost Souls.
    The tempest also slows and reduces healing recieved.

    Z'or, the Manifestation of Void
    - This Guardian will only spawn whenever all other Guardians have been defeated.
    - Will burst with void energy every 12 seconds, dealing increased damage with each cast. Kill it, before it kills you.
    - The next time you encounter Z'or, the Manifestation of Void, void energy from the previous encounter remains, increasing the base damage of his void energy burst.

    3.8a Changelog

    General


    The Champions Highscore is reset this version due to several balance changes and new additions. Your old Highscores will still load and save if you play the older versions, so no data is lost.

    Map is now compatible with the latest Warcraft 3 patch (1.31.1).

    Codeless Save and Load (Multiplayer) by TriggerHappy@hiveworkshop updated to v3.0.0.

    Improved and optimized the Champions Highscore and synchronization-time reduced.

    Enrage adjusted. When creeps or guardians enrage they'll now gain +30% damage every 2 seconds, instead of +100% damage every 15 seconds.
    The warning text and sound will also only play once at the enrage start.

    Ultimate Abilities redesigned:
    You're no longer able to upgrade an Ultimate Ability; instead the level is increased by 1 after each completed wave, up to level 5.
    The power of an Ultimate Ability starts low and gets exceptionally stronger after each level.

    When you use the Ultimate Ability it loses power and the level is decreased by 2 after the wave is completed, instead of gaining a level.
    An Ultimate Ability can be used once per wave and the cooldown is reset after each completed wave.

    Added credits for imported models introduced in this version.
    At first I didn't plan to import any models, but changed my mind. Mythic@hiveworkshop made some awesome special effects and I couldn't resist adding some of them.

    3.5a (2019-03-06)


    This version brings modified and new mechanics, major improvements and balancing fixes and other new additions!

    3.5a Changelog

    General

    The Champions Highscore is reset this version due to several balance changes and new additions. Your old Highscores will still load and save if you play the older versions, so no data is lost.

    Generated a shadow map for the terrain.

    The Hero and units of a leaving player are no longer removed during gameplay. The remaining players will instead get shared unit control over this player. When the round restarts after a defeat, the leaving players units, etc are removed from the game.

    The game should no longer fail to detect when all player heroes are dead and restart the round without issues.

    New icon for the player resource, Gold.
    Renamed the player resource "Talent Point" (lumber) to "Ability Point".

    A new resource and mechanic added: Heroic Essence
    Food (player resource) is now called "Heroic Essence".
    "Champions who have proven themselves to be able to defeat a Guardian will relish in a majestic and heroic essence and are able to handle greater powers."​

    A new shop-menu has been added: Legendary Artifacts
    An artifact will bind itself to the Hero who purchase it as an additional ability and can't be unlearned or removed. Limited to 1 at a time.
    An artifact costs 1000 gold and 3 Heroic Essences.
    Every artifact have one Legendary Effect and one Legendary Augmentation. The augmentation will increase the power of the legendary effect when used as described.
    The artifact also have a dynamic description; the values in the ability tooltip updates with gameplay, so you can see the augmented values updated in real-time.​

    Reworked the item stat: Spell Critical Strike Chance
    Items no longer give pure Spell Critical Strike chance; instead they give Spell Critical Rating.
    Spell Critical Rating Forumla: (rating * 0.02) / (2 + (rating * 0.02))

    Spell Critical Strike Chance with x rating (examples):
    10 rating = 9%
    20 rating = 16%
    30 rating = 23%
    40 rating = 28%
    50 rating = 33%
    60 rating = 37%
    70 rating = 41%
    80 rating = 44%
    90 rating = 47%
    100 rating = 50%
    110 rating = 52%
    150 rating = 60%
    200 rating = 66%
    500 rating = 83%
    1000 rating = 91%
    5000 rating = 98%
    ...etc

    The Spell Critical Damage bonus is still the same (as an example: if you have two +25% Spell Critical Damage items, your Spell Critical Damage is increased by 50%.)​


    The Ability Point cost to Overcharge an ability has changed from 2 to 1, but now also cost 1 Heroic Essence.

    Adjusted a lot of text, text-layout, colors and fixed various grammar mistakes.


    Commands

    Added new commands:
    "-pt" and "-pause"
    If all players type this command before the first wave starts, the "GAME START" timer is paused.​

    "-resume" and "-unpause"
    If any player type this command while the "GAME START" timer is paused, the "GAME START" timer is resumed.​

    "-scr"
    Displays your current Spell Critical Rating and your %-chance to do a Spell Critical Hit.​

    "-brawl" (Player 1 only)
    An experimental command that activates the "BRAWL"-mode. This is a PvP gamemode.
    All players have their Hero-level set to 10 and get 2800 Gold, 10 Ability Points and 3 Heroic Essence to prepare their Hero with.
    After 90 seconds a FFA PVP event starts. The last man standing wins!​

    Tried to improve the "-resync" command. The timer is now set to 15 seconds instead of 60 and a second attempt is made automatically. If the second attempt fails, the players may continue with the Champions Highscore disabled or remake the game.

  • More Guardians

    The more Guardians the more fun encounters and more twists with different combinations of creep-buffs!

    New Gamemodes

    New game modes might get introduced; currently "Random Trial" and "All Pick" are available ("-brawl" command is also available to initiate a PvP battle between players). I've got plenty of ideas for some other game modes.

    All game modes will have a seperate Champions Highscore, to keep it balanced!

    Global Champions Highscores


    If future patches of Warcraft 3 will allow us to save data on Blizzard servers, I'll make a leaderboard that will synchronize the Highscores from all playing players, instead of loading/saving locally.

    QWERTY-Hotkeys

    Currently not doable in any time efficient way that I know. Hopefully Blizzard will add a way to change the hotkeys dynamically in-game in the future.

    Other

    Allow Heroes to be more equal in strengths and weaknesses.
    Improve the balancing and add more abilities/items, etc.

Reviews

My Review For what my opinion is worth; this is an excellent map with a very high replay value. Me and my friend have both enjoyed twelve hours of it within the last two days; which should speak towards it's quality. The Good: The terrain is nice,...
deepstrasz
Goblin Land mines have no attack animation. Might want to make them ranged having a projectile or something. To be frank, the way the systems work, randomization+choices is quite interesting. There is replayability value. Approved. If you want...

    Update (2019-06-29)


    Version 3.9a released. It's a very small update, but counted as a major release because changes made to the Champions Highscore system. I've also added a new item.

    Hopefully no more issues!

    3.9a Changelog

    General

    The Champions Highscore is reset this version due to changes made with the Champions Highscore system. Your old Highscores will still load and save if you play the older versions, so no data is lost.

    The name of a player is no longer relevant when saving or loading the Champions Highscore.
    The Champions Highscore (the save files) is now shareable between players.
    You're now able to use multiple accounts/player profiles with the Champions Highscore (but only the highest score between the accounts is saved).

    Items

    New Item: Ultimate Arcane Scroll
    When purchased, the minimum level of the purchasing players ultimate ability is set to level 3.


    As always, good luck and have fun! :)

    Update (2019-06-26)


    Short update; it appears the Champions Highscore might have a few issues with the latest version.

    Working on version 3.9a and I'll include the bug fixes in this version. Will probably be sometime this week.

    Update (2019-06-17)


    It's here, version 3.8a! It should be fully playable with no major issues with the 1.31.1 patch. I've not found any major issues so far.

    The lesser bugs and issues I'll fix over time; but my priority was to release this major balance version and make it playable with the latest Warcraft 3 patch.

    Please report any issues if you find any!

    Goodluck!

    3.8a Changelog

    General


    The Champions Highscore is reset this version due to several balance changes and new additions. Your old Highscores will still load and save if you play the older versions, so no data is lost.

    Map is now compatible with the latest Warcraft 3 patch (1.31.1).

    Codeless Save and Load (Multiplayer) by TriggerHappy@hiveworkshop updated to v3.0.0.
    Damage Engine by Bribe@hiveworkshop updated to v5.1.3.1.

    Improved and optimized the Champions Highscore and synchronization-time reduced.

    Enrage adjusted. When creeps or guardians enrage they'll now gain +30% damage every 2 seconds, instead of +100% damage every 15 seconds.
    The warning text and sound will also only play once at the enrage start.

    Ultimate Abilities redesigned:
    You're no longer able to upgrade an Ultimate Ability; instead the level is increased by 1 after each completed wave, up to level 5.
    The power of an Ultimate Ability starts low and gets exceptionally stronger after each level.

    When you use the Ultimate Ability it loses power and the level is decreased by 2 after the wave is completed, instead of gaining a level.
    An Ultimate Ability can be used once per wave and the cooldown is reset after each completed wave.

    The cost of an Ultimate Ability in the "Random Trial" game mode changed from 100 Gold and 3 Ability Points to 300 Gold and 3 Ability Points.
    The cost of an Ultimate Ability in the "All Pick" game mode changed from 3 Ability Tokens to 5 Ability Tokens.​

    Unlearning an Ultimate Ability now only refunds the base cost (level 1) Ability Points.​

    Added credits for imported models introduced in this version.
    At first I didn't plan to import any models, but changed my mind. Mythic@hiveworkshop made some awesome special effects and I couldn't resist adding some of them.
    When Warcraft 3: Reforged is released I'll replace the models that doesn't fit with the new visuals.

    Game Modes

    All Pick
    - The enemy health bonus changed from +30% to +20%.

    UI

    Two new buttons added!

    READY - If you press this button you'll be marked as "ready". When all players are ready the next wave will begin after 3 seconds.​

    Commands

    The Quick Start command (-qs) removed and replaced with new the new Ready-button mentioned above.

    Abilities

    All Ultimate Abilities now have 5 ability levels, up from 3, but can no longer be manually upgraded (see General changes above).

    Update (2019-06-16)


    I believe I've fixed most bugs and issues introduced with the 1.31.x patches. I might have version 3.8a ready sooner than expected! :)


    Update (2019-06-14)


    Currently working with the latest patch (1.31.1) and adding new features and most importantly fixing all major bugs introduced with the 1.30 patch. I've got no information when 3.8a is ready, I'll update this post whenever the version is about to be ready.



    Update (2019-05-30)


    The progress on version 3.8a is going slow and steady forward! I've redesigned the Ultimate Abilities to feel more unique and interesting:

    Ultimate Abilities redesigned:
    You're no longer able to upgrade an Ultimate Ability; instead the level is increased by 1 after each completed wave, up to level 5.
    The power of an Ultimate Ability starts low and gets exceptionally stronger after each level.

    When you use the Ultimate Ability it loses power and the level is decreased by 2 after the wave is completed, instead of gaining a level.
    An Ultimate Ability can be used once per wave and the cooldown is reset after each completed wave.

    The cost of an Ultimate Ability in the "Random Trial" game mode changed from 100 Gold and 3 Ability Points to 300 Gold and 3 Ability Points.
    The cost of an Ultimate Ability in the "All Pick" game mode changed from 3 Ability Tokens to 5 Ability Tokens.

    Unlearning an Ultimate Ability now only refunds the base cost (level 1) Ability Points.​

    It's still a WIP and some things may still change!


    Also...

    With patch 1.31 released I asume this map is broken as I've read about a couple of changes that I know would affect this map. I can't test it myself and unfortunately I'm unable fix the issues as for now; I'll wait until Blizzard patches most of the newly introduced issues with the patch until I update my Warcaft 3.

    I'll continue to work on version 3.8a in the 1.30.4 client, so no progress is lost really. :)


    Update (2019-05-18)



    Forgot to exclude some last minute debug texts before I released the 3.7d version, sorry about that. 3.7d is still 100% playable, but if the random texts that may appear bothers, play this, 3.7e version instead.

    Update (2019-04-26)

    Version 3.7a released!

    I hope you'll enjoy the new "All Pick" game mode; it's a very different way to play!

    Version 3.4.0a released!

    ---

    Update (2019-02-09)


    Version 3.4.0a is currently under development and in this version I've implemented a new mechanic that will change the way to play: Ability Overcharge

    Ability Overcharge

    This will let you overcharge one of your Basic Abilities up to two (2) times, improving its power even further. You're able to select the Basic Ability you want to overcharge, this is not random, but the Basic Ability must be upgraded to level 3 first.
    It costs 150 gold and 2 talent points per overcharge-level and you may reset the overcharge for free at any time.

    Values might change under development.


    Update (2019-02-02)


    Version 3.3.0a released!

    ---





    Previous versions of Champions Trial can be found below in this post.


    Thank you for playing!

    My Review
    For what my opinion is worth; this is an excellent map with a very high replay value. Me and my friend have both enjoyed twelve hours of it within the last two days; which should speak towards it's quality.

    The Good:
    • The terrain is nice, for what it is. Simplistic; but it doesn't have to be overly complex to be eye-pleasing.
    • Incredibly replay value, especially with the fact the game automatically restarts itself. It's easy to lose track of time when you begin playing.
    • Really interesting gimmick, having boss mechanics carry over into the waves.
    • Unique and fun, compelling items. Especially the later tier abilities.
    • I'm not sure if the system scales with more players, but for two players the game felt very well balanced; there was just the perfect amount of challenge for us.

    The Bad:
    • It feels really shitty to keep getting really bad base heroes (the most egregious are melee int heroes), and needing to wait in the kill zone to restart the game (I see in the commands that there is a -restart, but as player 1 I wasn't able to get it to work)
    • Okay, so; I recommend you edit each ability to take the UI slot 0,2 and then you code them whenever you get a new ability to put it in the next available slot (e.g. second ability goes to slot 1,2, third goes to 2,2) and sets the hotkey to Q, W, E, and R; with T or something being the ultimate. With the functions added in 1.2.9, this should be possible. It's a pretty big problem because sometimes abilities overwrite hotkeys (for example, StormBolt and Blink.)
    • A'er the Guardian of the Wind feels absolutely cheap. It doesn't feel fun at all (and this isn't a "oh, I can't beat it" type of complaint, since me and my friend have collectively managed to beat all the bosses), the tornadoes sometimes spawn on-top of you, and there's no real way to counter-play the tornadoes. Movement speed really doesn't help all that much, and if you're focused on summoned units? Well... Good luck keeping them alive during a tornado. Every other boss seems fairly reasonable, and I have no real complaints other than that.
    • I realize you were trying to make every single ability be featured in the game; but I suggest changing the way some of them work, otherwise there's just abilities that you get that literally have zero practical purpose. (the biggest examples are Taunt and Phase shift that we've found so far; if you gave Taunt the ability to increase armor for a short duration (the armor value scaling with level), it would make that ability viable. I'm not sure what you could do for phase shift, though.


    Overall Rating:
    Overall, I hope I didn't sound too harsh or nitpicky; this game is *excellent*, but there's still room for growth I feel. Overall, it's got a masterful execution and it's own identity; it's very unique.

    For this reason, my verdict is 5/5

    Edit: Oops, I was so tired yesterday after typing this review that I forgot to -actually- put down a rating. My bad; I went ahead and put in the rating, thank you deepstrasz for the heads up! :D

    Great review, thank you for taking the time to write it!

    It does; the amount of creeps that spawn depends on the amount of players playing:
    1 player - 3 creeps
    2 players - 5 creeps
    3 players - 7 creeps
    4 players - 10 creeps

    The enemy values (health, armor, damage, etc) are still the same and the total amount of gold and experience gained is also the same.

    The Champions Highscore is different for each player count though, as it's difficult to keep the balance equal.

    I completely agree and I've been trying to think of a solution. I'm not sure what to do of it yet though. Any suggestions are welcome.

    The "-restart" command will only work after the first wave has spawned (if it still didn't work then, it's a bug).

    Good idea with the ability UI position, I'll look into it!

    Unfortunately there's no simple solution to change the hotkey of an ability (that I know of) in-game. Hopefully this feature will be added in the future.

    Yes, I agree and I've already removed the damage from the tornado for the next version. I've also reduced their area of effect and the maximum amount of speed they can drag you in. This will make it less dangerous, but it will still be an annoying hazard that will try to move you out of position. I'm also looking into a new ability for A'er, as she'll now lack any damaging ability.

    Yeah, there's some abilities that are below average in the included ability-list currently. The Taunt suggestion is great and I'll see what I can do about any other, possibly underperforming abilities. I'm also looking into adding more original and custom abilities to the list. I'm not sure when this will happen though, so no promises yet.


    Thanks again and I'm glad you enjoy the map!

    Awesome lengthy response. I'm very glad you talked over most of the points that I brought up, and especially glad to hear that a lot of them you agree with (and are aiming to fix with the next version) I just got finished playing again, this time me and my friend were able to effectively 'beat' the game (wave 37)

    Was a lot of fun, and if it wasn't for a mistake on my end (I accidentally, right into a tornado and laughing flame face) we could've gotten further.

    I'll private message you a list of gripes we got throughout the play, as-well as anything I seen that I thought may be a bug.

    Goblin Land mines have no attack animation. Might want to make them ranged having a projectile or something.

    To be frank, the way the systems work, randomization+choices is quite interesting. There is replayability value.

    Approved.

    Nice! :D That's a really good Highscore, will be though to beat!

    Thanks for the review!

    I'll look into the Goblin Land mines. It was a quick fix I forgot about, as they were static and didn't attack previous versions.

    Great!

    I've just updated the map once again to version 3.4b that fixes some bugs and issues found in the 3.4.0a version; I'd recommend that you play that version.

    Goodluck and I hope you'll enjoy the new update!

    Just went through a couple of really good runs with 3 others; got a Champions Highscore of 62 the very last round! Try to beat that!

    Seeing them enjoy the map for hours is really the pinnacle as a map maker and a small evidence that you've succeeded with what you've created!

    The motivation is high and I've got some good notes for the next version, stay tuned!

    I'm retarded and I forgot to actually post the review that I wrote; sorry about that...

    • After about 10~20 hours of play me and my friend (a game of two people as usual) managed to make it to wave 42. Here's just a quick list of thoughts and unsorted comments I might've had to make...
      • I genuinely love the overcharge system; although I'd ask you to consider branching it out so that you can overcharge two of your four allotted abilities; I think that'd be a good dynamic. Overall though; great addition to the game.
      • I do have a pretty significant gripe with this version; prior versions the mana costs (pretty much) stayed the same, and that was great for strength Heroes and agility Heroes; but now the spells cost way too much as you level them up. (Pocket Factory stopped at something like 260 mana cost at level 3, if I'm not mistaking) so basically; as a non-intelligence hero, it's INCREDIBLY frustrating. Like literally, I had Brewmaster and I leveled up Pocket Factory and I couldn't even USE it, I didn't have enough maximum mana to even cast it.
      • A lot of the balance changes on specific abilities I complained about before feel much better now; such as Hardened Skin and Taunt.
      • Removing abilities is still a bit of a hassle; it'd be great if you allowed players to manually select the slot they'd like to unlearn, much like you did with the overcharge system.
      • Bosses feel a LOT better now, especially the tornado boss. It's no longer a migraine to deal with anymore, so kudos!
    • Mechanics:
      Like I mentioned on the General Thoughts tab; I think if you allowed the player to set which spell (via slot) that they'd like to remove manually; it'd be a more streamlined and less frustrating experience.
      I firmly believe that either all non-intelligence Heroes need more base mana (or intelligence per level?) or the drastic change to mana costs of spells per level needs to be reverted.
      I know I've mentioned it before; but I still feel it's relevant. Certain Heroes are too bad, and need small tweaks or changes unless you want it to be possible for someone who is luckier with their Hero random to be better. I don't think you should standardize, but you should give the Heroes that are under-preforming a buff (perhaps in another area, there's nothing wrong with having Heroes have niches). Here's a small list;

      Alchemist - has the worst base attack speed of any Hero, and worst agility stat to boot (he was meant to rely on his Chemical Rage ability)
      Suggested Change: Increased base damage, significantly
      Tauren Chieftain - has an incredibly large collision radius (meaning it's easier for him to get
      surrounded and cucked)

      Suggested Change: Increased base armor, or slightly increased strength per level
      Crypt Lord - same issue as Tauren Chieftain.
      Suggested Change: Increased base armor, or slightly increased strength per level
      Dreadlord - His cast backswing point is 1.530, it's one of the longest cast backswings for any Hero (Archmage is higher, but at least he's ranged).
      Suggested Change: Perhaps a slight buff to his mediocre stats?


      Abilities:

      Arcane Resistance is NOT ever worth leveling up; though it's a pretty cool ability on paper. I'd recommend tweaking it so that the spell damage reduction increases with level up, because right now it is always 15% reduction. (Maybe 15%/25%/35%, since it's more niche than Hardened Skin?)
      Anti-Magic Shell is a pretty rubbish spell. It blocks a negligible amount of flat damage, which also means it falls off pretty hard, too.
      Unholy Aura is an ability that I kinda forgot about until I got it randomed one game; but it's absolutely trash. It's movement speed is not worth the ability slot (plus endurance does that, but better); and it give you 1/2/3 hit points regeneration... Which is practically nothing. I don't recall if Unholy Aura can be toggled to be a percentage like Brilliance Aura, but maybe if it gave percentage regeneration; it'd at least not be absolute trash. (1%/2%/3%?)
      Life Drain is exceptionally strong... It almost feels TO strong since I can use it to keep myself up, whilst everything is wacking on my low-health squishy Hero. You may want to check that out a little bit; since I think there's some trigger bugging going on there. (Definitely feels like more than 100 DPS)
      Bloodlust... Okay hear me out on this one since it's a bit of an odd one; Bloodlust... I feel like you severely overestimated it's power and made it worse than it should be, anticipating it to be *extremely* good... However, it doesn't play out like that. The duration is very short (most of your time is spent keeping it refreshed, rather than attacking) and the actual effect is less valuable than a 250 GP item.
      You've done it! You've made Hardened Skin AND Taunt useful, Phase Shift isn't AS bad now, so that's awesome -- that's quite a feat within itself.

      Items:
      I've got no complaints about the new items, they're all pretty interesting and cool. I do definitely hope to see more late-tier items with stacking effects, though.


    That's all I've got this time, I haven't been able to test for as long as I was last time since my schedule has been pretty hectic; but 10 hours is still a pretty solid chunk to form some opinions, I suppose :p

    I played the map with a couple of friends and some random people this past weekend.
    I love it, but would love the option to restart or repick heroes if the host wishes it or all players agree.
    We got to the point where we're pretty competitive to go far but when your team has no tanks, no ranged or agi heroes, it's not very possible.
    The people who commented before me have really good constructive criticism as well.
    We wiped at 38 in my furthest run.
    How did you get to level 63? Did you have 2 tanks and 2 agility damage dealers?

    I really don't care for some of the skills which have no functionality by themselves, like sacrificing undead units. Dark Ritual, Death Pact etc.
    Still haven't tested a build with Silence for example. I like that you added Armor buff to Taunt.

    And I think you could use a more visible color than brown for some of the text. It's really hard to read.

    Keep up the good work, man.

    I host the map as "NEW MAP Random Hero Defense" and it fills up quickly.

    Isn't Hardened Skill directly worse than Evasion though? Like 50% effective compared to Evasion?
    That's one of my problems with the Hardened Skin skill.

    I think the ability removal shouldn't change because I like the "gambling" nature of it.
    You can progress slowly when you're not satisfied with the last skill you get OR reroll all of them.

    Answer
    Great feedback as usual and congrats on the Highscore!

    Glad you like it, I'm very satisfied with how it turned out!

    I did consider increasing the limit, but was afraid of how easily abused it could be. I don't want players to become overpowered and I'll have to find a balance.
    I've got some ideas and will continue to experiment; but currently no plans to change this mechanic.

    I agree 100% and I've adjusted the mana costs for the next version with a rule that all heroes should be able to cast any basic ability (of level 1, 2 and 3) atleast once, without any items.

    Great!

    Currently no plans for this. It's a risk to keep an early ability you're not fully satisfied with and it's another risk to unlearn recent ones to remove the old ones. You've got the tools to slowly build your character, one ability at a time. Can be painful early with the gold cost and randomness; but might be very rewarding late game with the perfect abilities you've managed to get.

    Though, when I introduce an "All Pick"-mode, this will 100% be the way to unlearn your abilities.

    Awesome; I've made a few adjustments to a couple of Guardians for the next version as some of them feel a bit underwhelming currently.

    I completely agree and I'm still thinking of a fun way to improve the Heroes. I might just up the numbers for some, for now and do something else in a later version.

    Many abilities are improved the next version and most of what you suggested have been implemented/fixed.

    Yeah, I'd like more items to have stacking effects aswell, I'll see what I can do!

    No worries, everything, big or small is very appreciated! :)



    Answer
    Awesome, I'm glad you like it and great Highscore!

    You are able to restart the game if Player 1 type "-restart". This only works after the first wave has spawned.
    The purpose of this command is to prevent the game to get stuck with a rare bug (which hopefully is fixed in the next version); but can be used to force a restart.
    So I guess the added time is a small disadvantage for those who force a completely new hero line-up.

    Indeed and it's very appreciated and has helped a lot!

    Well, every game and version has its own META. It's up to the players to find the best line-up to get as far as possible! I agree that atleast one tank
    is a requirement to get far this version.

    Yeah, exactly; the tanks barely held up together while the damage dealers nuked everything down. Everyone had a really good build of abilities and items that helped a lot.

    Several improvements has been made for the next version regarding abilities. Dark Ritual and Death Pact as an example can now target any unit that's owned by the caster.

    Yes, I agree 100%. I'm looking to improve it for the next version. I'm not sure what text is "brown" though.

    That's really nice to hear! I've had no issues myself either and people are happy to learn the game and enjoy the stay!

    I will and thanks for the comment and feedback!

    Thanks!

    I've released version 3.5a just now and I've modified a lot of text in this version; hopefully it's better and easier to read! :)

    Hey! This game is a lot of fun! After fighting the Arcane boss, Arcane orbs continued to spawn in the following waves. Is this intended?

    Hey, I'm glad you like it! :)

    Yes, this is intended and actually a core mechanic of the game!

    Whenever you kill a Guardian (a boss) it will permanently give the creeps one of its abilities (the ability it gives is pre-determined) and in your case the Arcane boss (Voltronax) gave his Arcane Orb ability to all the creeps when you defeated him.
    This means that the more Guardians you kill, the more abilities the creeps will have their hands on and the harder and more chaotic it will become!

    I've been playing with a friend and we felt like the first items are almost useless, since we dont need any items until the first boss, but when you get to the first boss you probably have around 400G wich are the "true starter items" for us. I think you could implement recipes for the first items not being so useless.

    When we were playing we got double Far Seer, we just accepted our fate and lost early. Then we got double Uther, who proved to be super strong with this build (see pic), Serpent Ward and Vengeance carried us in early stages that were super slow, then it fell off in late game when we didnt need it anymore.

    We never managed to get far with mages, maybe theyre too underpowered? Anyway we enjoy playing this map, keep up the good work. :)
