    -Normal Mode : To win the game, firstly, you have to enter the circle of power located at enemy base. By doing so, you can disable the shield of the enemy's main building and also open the central gate which connects both base together. Then, destroy the enemy's main building. Finally, kill all enemy heroes to win the game.


    Special features of this map

    Special features of this map:
    - Your base and enemy base are just beside each other. There are 4 roads that linked these 2 bases together (3 main roads + shortcut: the gate between these 2 bases). To open the gate, your hero has to enter the circle of power located at enemy base.
    - Most of the units / buildings inside your base are shops. Those shops will become vulnerable when one of the towers in your base was destroyed.
    - Some items can be found from neutral creeps after killing them or at casino (Gamble for luck) or at Supply Aircrafts (birds in the sky) and most of these items cannot be found in any other shops. If you are lucky, you can purchase items at battlefield too.
    - There are 3 hidden merchants inside jungle who sell some rare but powerful items.
    - Kill the Neutral Creep GOD (Like Roshan, has the ability to teleport himself automatically when attacked) to earn extra gold, lumbers and special items.
    - In Normal Mode, when your Command Center / Dark Portal was destroyed, the abandoned heroes inside your base will be revived to protect your base.
    - Traitor (Anyone who killed ally heroes) will lose all gold, lumbers and items.
    - You may hire some neutral creeps at Hidden Waygates.
    - You can hire workers to repair your ally towers. Of course it will be disabled in some modes.
    - Abandoned Gold Mine (located at South West) generate extra 40 gold per 20 seconds (80 gold in Quick Mode) for each player in the controlling team. Destroy this building to gain control.
    - You can control the Neutral Tower (located at North East, high attack damage) by stepping onto the circle of power nearby. You will lose control of it if you leave the circle.
    - When your hero is dead, click Command Center / Dark Portal for instant reviving.
    - There are a lot of shortcuts and hiding places in the jungle, be sure to check them out. You can change the destination of waygates too (located at each corner of the map) by stepping onto the circle of powers nearby.
    - Some hero abilities can cast on ally towers, which makes them stronger.


    Type of Special Shops / Merchants

    Type of Special Shops / Merchants:
    - Bank / Black Market: Allows you to store your gold. By doing so, you can earn interest and protect your gold. Of course the enemy can invade this building and steal your gold too.
    - Loser Helper: Provides help for losers. If you always getting killed, you can buy some powerful items from this shop. For example: Loser Gun, a powerful gun with a bullet that can deal damage to enemy. The damage = Your total number of deaths x 100.
    - Death Merchant: Sells the Death Spells which will be auto casted when you are dead. For example: If you purchased Death Immolation, your body will automatically burnt and damage enemies nearby when you were killed. There are about 11 types of death spells, but you can only purchase 1 at a time.
    - Counter Spell Shop: Sells items that can counter some hero spells. For example: Item Guardian - When carried, can protect your items and prevent them from being stolen by Items Collector. The disadvantage is that you will get damaged by that hero when it casts "Steal Item" on you.
    - Olymzeus Spell Shop: Sells the Ultimate Spells for hero of Level 20. You can only purchase 1 type at a time. For example: Bag of Gold spell - Put your gold coins into a huge bag and throw it towards an enemy hero to deal damage to it. damage = amount of gold x 2
    - Transformer Merchant: Sells items that can be clicked to transform to another kind of item and therefore change the original item abilities. For example: Transformer Sword - gives 50 bonus to damage. Can be transformed to Transformer Shield - gives 25 armor.
    - Shops Summoner: Allows you to summon merchants / shops at battlefield so that you can buy those items immediately.
    - Items Manipulator: Sells items that can be used to manipulate enemy's items. For example: Item Dropper - Drops all the items carried by an enemy hero.
    - Anti Creep GOD: Sells items that can be used to counter the Neutral Creep GOD. For example: Creep GOD Detector - Shows you the location of the Neutral Creep GOD

    Look if you don't have any custom models then show your terrain... And attaching your map isn't the same as linking the map.... (Dispite you clearly flaming me, I'm still trying to help you :hohum:)

    "too strong? the AI can b divided into 3 categories, which are easy AI, normal AI and insane AI.

    may i noe which AI u played with?
    if u played with insane, ofcoz its hard.
    but if u noe the techniques, it wont be hard for u.
    tats the speciality of this game."

    Oh I see! I played with insane AI, i thought there is no difference between them coz I played a lot of AI map n usually there is no difference between easy, normal or insane. I wil try to play with easy AI and see if i can finish it or not lol!

    The AI in this map is clever, hard to kill them using normal way of attack coz they will return to their base when HP is low. and they use their skills quite well too. I think I am still new to this map, thats why. can u teach me some techniques?

    well, yea.. easy AI is more dummy, i think u should be able to handle tat. ofcoz the AI is not too easy, it wont fight with u until it gets killed, it will also retreat when the HP is low.

    sure can teach u some techniques, but u have to find it out by urself too.. which hero r u using?

    hope to get more comments from u soon :p

    Ok now that I've actually played the map I would like to say a few things.

    -Good AI very hard to beat. (The best I've ever seen.)
    -I request more insults from the millionare.
    -Work on the terrain more it looks kind of pasted on and ugly.
    -Nerf Timebomb. Really if it's going to kill me nomatter what at least don't take away my gold.
    -Allow us to see what the hero's abilities are before we choose them.

    thanks for playing, moontraveler!
    Wow, the best AI? no kidding? thanks for ur praise! I shall quote ur comment n use it to promote my map at the map description there hahaha..

    more insults from milionaire? then there will be full screen of messages from him, some of my frens already said the msg r too much lol

    ya, i know the terain sucks, do u have any map with nice terrains? mayb i should learn from it heh..

    u mean the timebomb abilities of Bomber King is it? i see. yeah, the AI love to cast that abilities, usually we easily get killed by that. perhaps in nex version i will include some items to "cure" it so that it wont explode.

    to see the abilities, i still configue how to do that coz this map is diff from other map. (by clicking the hero, u have already chosen that hero), so there is no way to show the abilities like tat.. u got any ideas where to show it?

    hope to get more feedback from u soon hehe.. hav a nice play!

    ya i have tried to play with easy AI, its easier but still need techniques to kill them. I agree with MoonTraveler that this map's AI is the best!

    I have tried few heroes so far, mostly thief side heroes like item collector, experience seeker, genome thief etc. their melee are quite low.. do u have any techniques of using these heroes?

    thanks for ur compliment!

    ok, i can give u some techniques here:

    lets say u choose item collector, if ur enemy has bought few insane items, u can cast the item steal ability to steal its item, if the stealing is successful, u may use the advantage of the item stolen against the enemy. u can also summon item carrier and use it to cast "item twist" that can turn enemy's item into cheese. ofcoz the item carrier can be used to carry those dropped item at the ground if ur hero inventory is full. u can use the item carrier to buy item fom ur base and carry to u since its speed is very fast. by combining all these abilities, item collector can be a super good hero. if u dint use any of these abilities, item collector is just a stupid hero with low melee.

    try to combine all the abilities inside the hero, and u will find out that can be easily used to kill enemy heroes hehe.. good luck!
