Update1

I've decreased the filesize severely, changed the Felhound Rider to Felguard which is slower but tougher, fixed an arena bug a little, fixed the Radiation Cloud bugs and added Hero glows for the Heroes who first didn't have one. And now only skeletons are marked as undead.


Update2

Difficulty increase lowered. Added a new Hero. Potions cheaper and less cooldown. More gold coins can be found. Added random unit groups for stage 1. It's now easier to choose a hero. Added 2 additional camera views (see the quest log for more info). Added an easy gamemode. Made the Minor & Lesser Replenishment Potions stackable. Fire traps work better now. Added a timer for Skeleton Throwers. I've fixed a lot of bugs and reduced lag.


Update3

Added an Ultimate for every Hero. Improved/balanced difficulty in some areas. Spiderlings can be seen better when coming out of a Hive.


Update4

The arena stays open after you won all the matches. Battle against Death itself is more epic. Added a stash for all players, that moves along with the player Hero, acts as a backpack. Improved tower system.


Update5

Small update which adds an extra camera mode which is basically the same camera view as DarknessChaser's default, but this one enables you to zoom in, zoom out and rotate.


Please comment: give usefull comments, critic and ideas and I will update the map. Have fun!:infl_thumbs_up:

    @:ACdestinydream

    Do you even know what Imba means?
    Imba = Imbalanced.
    And i don't think it is imbalanced.
    I guess you mean an Epic map ;)
    I like it really much too btw :p
    4/5 cause no map is perfect

    Thanks for the comments :)

    , I'm glad you liked it. By imba do you mean imbalanced? If yes, please tell me what I could change/improve.

    , thanks, I agree that no map is perfect. Still, I'll try to get as near as possible to perfection.

    , did you try the gamecodes (you can find them at the quest log)? At the moment only the code -loot makes the map easier by increasing monster drops, shall I add more gamecodes which decrease the map's difficulty? As for the cyborg and the robot, do you hate only the models (/how they look) or also their abilities?

    just because YOU hate it doesnt mean it doesnt fit into the map.
    ever heard of steampunk?
    @[K40$]-Spectre: dont listen to ppl like him.
    the fit pretty well imo.
    i tried the map once (and only short) with the robot butcher and....hes pretty bugged.
    his radiate cloud passe doesnt seem to do any dmg(i wasnt sure so i tried whosyourdaddy but it didnt do anything...maybe it only hits LIVING units and the enemies seem to be all UD =/)
    and after getting lvl2 of this rampage-like skill(forgot the name...it was like the ulti of the beastmaster+ should improve the radiate cloud passive)
    my cloud skill completely dissapeared.

    This is a map I've been looking for. Pure mindless hack'n'slash, like Warchasers. 5/5 +rep

    , I'm working on an update which hopefully will make the arena bugless, thanks for telling +rep.

    , Blizzard chosed that disease cloud can only effect non-undead, radiation cloud is based off it so I don't really know how to fix it except for basing it of another ability, anyone ideas? I'll look into triggers for the radiation field (the stampede one) bug. Thanks for bug report :D, +rep.

    , woot, thanks

    , thanks :)

    As I mentioned earlier, the update I'm working will remove as much bugs as possible, and decrease the filesize. That means I have some space left, what do you think I should add or should I leave the space alone so the map is more downloading friendly?

    , did you try this new version? It has a few bug fixes. If you find anymore please say it so I can fix them, at the moment I'm only aware of the arena bug and I'm working on it.

    , that's very nice of you, +rep for you. Though, the reason why my minimap image looks ugly in terms of detail and sharpness is because it has a small resolution, saving space for the map. Your minimap image looks much sharper but also weights more than twice as much.

    I finished this map alone, didn't saw no bugs(4 spawn point where invisible) but let people chose the camera mode. It s a good map.

    , thanks, I'll add a camera system if you guys want, which views do you want?

    , he was taking a lot of space as a model since I couldn't squish his model cause it's portrait is another mdx and than you would see no portrait when I squish the model. If someone merges the model and portrait in 1 mdx I could squish it and than I will import him back and turn it back as it was. The felguard (the model as now seen) will probably be a new hero. This is the model I'm talking about http://www.hiveworkshop.com/forums/models-530/fel-orc-felhound-rider-48411/?prev=search%3Dfel%26d%3Dlist%26r%3D20, if someone could do this +rep for him/her.

    btw, played 10 rounds and i found out: couldnt find the hero at first
    theres a bug: if u use the wardens banish 'or what that teles and stuns' onto gnolls u will get fatal.
    guess putting those banshees at the fireplace is a stupid idea, cuase we go to fireplace and fight with them

    I just noticed two bugs, one with the dragons near the arena that are almost dead and one that the illusions that are being cast by Mirror Image (a Warden's ability) don't deal damage at all. These bugs will be fixed in the next version.

    , which hero do you mean?

    , I just tested all the Warden's abilities on the gnolls at the beginning and I didn't see any bug, or did you meant something else?

    , which fireplace do you mean? The second stage with all the firetraps?
