CHAOS V0.5.2Beta

Submitted by KYTON
This bundle is marked as substandard. It may contain bugs, not perform optimally or otherwise be in violation of the submission rules.
CHAOS or Custom Hero Aeon of Strife is an all new A.O.S (Aeon of Strife) map with several new features along with some renowned features.


PLEASE NOTE: The newest version is very unstable and since I haven't worked on the map for months. Go to the last page and I will make a post there attaching the last stable version. Thanks

Features include:

Custom Heroes:
All heroes have 2-4 classes from which they can choose skills from ensuring free development of your hero. Chaos currently has over 150 skills to choose from.

Three Way Setup:
Chaos is based on a three-way A.O.S. setup allows fun action packed chaotic gameplay. The three races are Wildlings (based on Night elves), the Soulless (based on undead) and Righteous blades (based on humans). Your race has no effect on which heroes you may choose. The win system is also a variation: Unlike in other three way AOS maps, the game ends when any main building is destroyed. The team whose total building life is the largest at the end of the game wins.

Strategic Points:
Strategic points is An all new unseen feature. Across the map there are 4 "Strategic Points". Capturing them will not only improve your gold income, but also improve your creeps.

Upgradeable Creeps:
Not only does chaos have a selection of upgrades it also has a small amount of temporary bonuses for your creeps, to give them the edge when is needed.

Item System:
Chaos has an item system, causing heroes not to be able to use more than one item of the same type. Types include: Weapon, Staff, Boots, Armour and Artefact.

Monster Shrines:
Across the map monster shrines is scattered. Using them will summon creeps based on your level.

Large Variety:
Chaos currently has 50 fully customizable heroes and more than 120 items and item upgrades.

Special thanks to everyone who has posted in this forum for your ideas and support, without your support none of this would be possible.

Please note that this map is protected, if you want to know how I did some of my abilities or have any warcraft related question pm me and I will be glad to help.

    Okay! The ultimate creeps need to be be damaged first before they turn neutral hostile. What do you mean if you kill them you get killed and not revived? So far in all online games this did not happen. But I will look at the script. Thank you man. I'll work on it straight away. Another bug is one that occasionally prevents you from buying items or using abilities. I have no idea what could cause this.

    I like some of your ideas. Also glad to see I'm not the only guy making 3-way AoS maps :)

    I'll give it a try in the morning, and hit you up with a rate. I realize it's beta btw, so I'll be fair ;)

    Give mine a whack if you like, I'm finding it hard to get feedback lately, my map's in the final stages but without feedback I'll never know for sure ;)

    Looking forward to trying this map out.

    I've uploaded the new version so dowload the newest version please. As you can see I have updated quite a few stuff. I have commented in your other forum. Still had to little playing time to give good constructive comments.

    Thanks Kyton, just lemme know what you think of it, and here comes my post, it's a doozie but it might prove helpful, here's hoping!


    giving your map a go as we speak, writing down what I notice :)

    First thing I see, I really like that you show the hero's stat increases on their descriptions. It's a good idea, wish I'd thought of it :D

    I noticed a couple of typos, such as "Strength" on the Ferocity ability and "Adrenaline" on Adrenaline Rush. Obviously this is nothing major, since I can tell you are a literate person, but there are quite a few typos in the many tooltips, descriptions, etc. Just thought you might want to be aware, I know I'm a stickler and hate when there's typos on my own map XD

    Using the QWERTY keybinds for the skills was a great idea, and one that I definitely copied, no question about it, from Eternal Conflict. Good move there, I hate maps where each hero has its own stupid keys to learn XD

    There's a spider statue up the middle lane from the evil faction's base (The Soulless) that is overlapping a cliff face. It looks a bit odd, just making you aware of it, not a big deal :)

    Telling people in an overhead text display, what a player is casting, is an awesome idea. I've never seen that before, very good job man.

    I like that all of the levels of the abilities are shown, so you know how the abilities increase with level ahead of time. I wanted to do this with my map, but my tooltips are long enough as is XD. I chose to go with the story information about the abilities rather than display all the levels, with the space. But your choice is good, and works well for your map.

    While I really like the customized ability selection, I think that there should be some type of limitation on how many stuns a hero can get. Looking at the stun/incapacitate abilities available, it's perfectly possible to make a hero that has nothing but stuns and just abuses the everlovin' hell out of them. I like your system a lot in many respects, but I think that one of the good things about preset abilities for a certain hero class, is that those abilities can be balanced against each other, because they are known variables instead of potentially changing ones. I don't know how exactly to combat this problem, except maybe as I said to set a limitation on stun abilities to say, 2 or maybe even 3. The same can be said with healing type abilities, which could allow a player to become nearly immortal XD. Just something to think about.

    On the tower destruction notifications, I think it would be helpful if it said WHOSE tower was being destroyed by whom, instead of just "soandso has destroyed a tower".

    I really like that there are some different skill sets available depending upon which class you choose, in addition to standard skills. Very interesting man.

    Now since my map was pretty bad with this until recently, I'm going to suggest from a completely objective perspective that you implement some more doodads/terraining, as in some places there are wide open spaces with nothing going on, looks pretty bleh. You'd be surprised what it adds to a map.

    I notice none of the heroes have any armor to start with. Was this intended, so that they may equip items to receive armor bonuses, or is it a bug? I'm not sure so I thought I'd mention it.

    I like the number of recipes available, and I also like the way you divided them among different "elements" with the names of gems to represent them. Very cool.

    Upgrading units is something I consider almost key to a great AoS map. Too many maps focus on heroes being uber pwn machines that crush all the troops without any problem. I like maps where strategy pays off, and troop upgrades is one way to make sure the troops can do something to keep up with the heroes. Good job there.

    While the Wealth Shrines are a very interesting idea, I think they might take away from the primary focus of the battle somewhat. I really sort of like the idea, I just don't know how well it fits into an AoS, because of the nature of maps where defending a keep and assaulting enemy bases are the main goals.

    By spawning big batches of creeps from single triggers at a single point, you sometimes get a lot of cramping when the mobs spawn and they trip all over each other for a bit. I would suggest maybe separating some of the spawns into a couple triggers, a short distance apart? Just an idea.

    Goblin Zeppelins are a cool idea, and when they are destroyed it's good that you don't die, but the dizziness effect seems to last quite a long time.

    The gravestone idea when a player dies, is very cool however my name is cut in half on the overhead text display. Just a little bug I noticed.

    There is a somewhat large lag spike of approximately 4 seconds when a player purchases his first skill, I don't know if this can be fixed but it's quite irritating. I guarantee you it's not my machine ;D. If 4 gigs of RAM isn't enough for a 5+ year old game, then I'm going to console games!

    Inner bases are pretty barren and there's wide open spaces with nothing going on in them. Try putting in some towers, some troops on standby, or something like that to make the bases more well-defended and less barren looking. The spawn points are set near the base and provide some okay defense, but nothing to even slow down an onslaught of heroes coming right for the base. Try putting in some kind of castle guardians that make players have to work at infiltrating a base a little more. Just another suggestion.

    So far, I really like this map, and I hope and know you will continue to improve it. Please realize all of my criticisms are with the understanding that It is a beta and that I only want to help you make your map kick even more ass :)

    Some very very unique and original ideas here, and overall most of it is implemented well. It has some hiccups, and some things such as a lack of limits on stuns and heals for purchased skills, which potentially harm the balance a bit, but I'm rating this map a 5 because I feel that it has great potential, and is very original.

    Feel free to rate my resource if you like, I'll check back for future versions, this map could very well become amazing.

    Arg!!!

    Bumkt: Thanks man! I'll upload a new version as soon as possible! Thank you man! (Due to the exams that might be Thursday or maybe later today... dam..) Thanks man for informing me so fast. And thanks for the typo's!

    Neverdeath: Thank you man for the typo's. Dam. How could I miss that??? Man thank you for your comments. The goblin Zepplin dizzyness is caused by the warcraft system, so no thanks to me. I'll try to somehow reduce the duration. Thank you for pointing that out. Thank you man. I'll improve the amount of structures in my map and add a few gaurdians. :) I'll look into the player name bug... Thank you! All of your suggestions ROCK!!! I wish I could add some rep to you!

    Sorry. But the LAG is caused by all my 130+ abilities not being loaded on initialization for some reason. I have tried to preload it using jass, but for some reason it stills lag like HELL when you buy the first ability.

    I'll looking at suggestions/opinions/comments on the following?

    1: Should I increase the amount of creep spawns? To make the battles more epic...

    2: Should I maybe add an additional spawn unit maybe a offensive spellcaster?? To add more versatality to creeps...

    3: Currently all my heroes with just 2 ability classes have a bonus ability. The bonus for having 3 ability classes to choose from is VERY minor. Should all heroes have a bonus ability?

    4: It has been said that agility heroes with warrior or archer outclass other heroes. So far, most of the killer combo's has been made with Saithis (Ghost Warrior), Kathris Starsong (Elven Archer), Erinyes (Saccubus)... although people have also made leathal combinations with the Nature Revenant and other int heroes as well as with Anubiros and other strenght heroes but less often than with Agility heroes. Do you consider agility heroes as unbalanced in my map?

    4: Should Captains, Abominations and Mountain Giants , maybe have a command or devotion Aura?

    Increasing the amount of spawns could be good, as long as you didn't go overboard with it. Make sure they come from a slightly different region, though, or they might get stuck and blocked by the other creeps.

    In my map, I have archers and various warrior types, and some flying units, primarily doing battle. I have an event however which spawns Mage Clans to enter the battle every couple hundred seconds, and toss chain lightning and magic all over the place. What I'm getting at basically is that it really depends on what you want to do for your map, for me, spellcasters as regular spawns didn't seem to fit what I was doing, but if you feel they do for yours, then you should do it :). Only you can answer this question!

    Agility heroes are usually pretty hard to balance, because they shouldn't have the heavy duty spells that int heroes have, or the high survivability that str heroes have, but should have enough dps to be able to potentially kill the other two hero types, without being overpowered. The way I balanced this was to give agility heroes similar hitpoints (str per level and starting HP) to the int heroes in my map, so that they are frail enough since they do such good damage and have some nasty trick moves. Perhaps this would work for you too?

    In my map, I have Champions which spawn every 360 seconds, and which have a strong devotion aura, and it helps in terms of strategy, to remove them from battle as soon as possible, because they also deal extra damage to non-hero units, and so they can turn the tides rather quickly if left unchecked. Giving your "general" type units a command or devotion aura doesn't sound like a bad idea to me. Just make sure it's a significant enough increase that it makes that unit a greater threat than the others, but not so powerful that it's imbalanced. I'd say perhaps 15-25% for command, maybe +5 for devotion? It depends really, I notice heroes in your map have little-no armor, so maybe 5 would be too much. Up to you!

    Keep up the good work man.

    Sorry about the MAYOR delay before another update, but I decieded that all heroes no matter if they have 2 or 3 skill classes should have a free ability and since I'm currently busy with exams, its quite hectic! Version 0.4 (decied not to name next version version .3c) should be released after a few days.

    So far, I have also slightly increased the spawn rate, added additional buildings to the main bases, Weath Shrines have been renamed to Stratigic Pionts and now grant a minor bonus on handicap for your creeps & towers (+3% I think), also improved attack and armor upgrades, but creeps no longer improve when you destroy towers, Heroes now actually have armor in lower levels, creeps now spawn at barrackses...

    Currently I'm busy with the bonus abilities for all heroes and decieded not to upload it since it would be unbalanced if only some of the heroes have bonus abilities. Again sorry about the delay.

    Neverdeath: Thank you, i think I'm going to add a devotion aura for the campions. Also think I'm going to add an additional archer and melee unit to creep waves. Also the balancing in my map is a lot differant than standard AOS because all abilities should be balanced as well as all heroes, altough thank you. I'll keep that in mind.Ha ha! The balancing in version 0.4 is going to quite off since the minimal testing time and mayor changes to heroes. Thank you for your comments.

    Hey Kyton.

    Glad I could help man, some of your ideas were also helpful to me, and I have some ideas I'll be tossing around over the next month as I contemplate releasing another version, such as your tower individualization suggestion. If you ever have any more ideas, feel free to toss em my way, and I'll continue to try out your map and do the same :)

    That's what mapmod communities are for!

    HAHA! Flippen thanks sanitoeter. Thank you that you keep on returning to me with bugs. It is greatly appreciated. Blades of Thunder is a Orb Effect and the bonus from the Sword of Fire is also an orb effect. I'll maybe add a warning text like "Note: The Orb Effect does not stack!" Thank you. Umm. Haha! By chance I know whats wrong with breath of fire! I'll fix that straight away. If all goes well I'll upload version 0.4 tonight or tomorrow. Dam camera bug... I'll fix that.

    Things I did not update that I will update in version 0.40a

    > Add to all orb effects in red at its description: "Orb effect does not stack with other orb effects"

    > Improve the balancing of the abilities of the heroes. Miniman testing could be preformed due to the minimal time.

    > Bug fix: Currently CHAOS has its bugs... and is more or less crawling with them, please report bugs here and if you really want to make my day post your replays as attachments.

    > Add some more items

    > Greatly improve tutorial when typing -new! Umm. Feel free to give me some suggestions.

    Thank you. I'll fix them and upload the new version. Mmm. Interresting that Sylvian Blades bugs, last time it worked, but the costruction description might be wrong. Arg. Dam, I made some wasted mistakes. Thank you for reporting them. It is greatly appreciated.

    BTW: CHAOS end when any main building is destroyed and the team whose total building life is the greatest win, which is a variation from the standard AOS
