Community Update

7 January 2017: Happy new year! I have decided that version 4.18 will be the final version, thank you for joining in this experiment to help shape the M.O.B.A experience and make balance a thing. I will be moving on to my next project, which will be my fifth major project for Warcraft III as a whole. Do check out my previous maps. (Wrath of Nations, Legendary Stage Challenge, Naruto Battle Siege and this)

11 December 2016: Hey players, X'mas is coming, I apologize for not having the snow version but please go back a few versions to play that. Right now, the balance for spells had been adjusted and hope that these bunch of changes will make a better game!

26 October 2016: There has been mainly balance changes and right now at V3.89, it becomes the one that is to be taken seriously. A very important note is that you have to go aggressive to win defensive, the defensive will win by default but fails to allow for potential future improvement. It is up to the player to choose which role (offense or defense) he/she would like to take and yield to the responsibility in order to win.

20 September 2016: Hi people, I will be doing more of this to communicate with the players more. Back in the beta and release dates there used to be a lot of icons in the description and are being brought down by myself because of new content that I flooded into the map which is at its current stage. There was a big name change from first version and along the way slight changes. I believe there won't be anymore map name changes in the future because the current one is very fitting. The first motivation that made me commit to this map is the weirdness of how the popular DOTA2 and League of Legends plays out. Players are required to study the game and use absolutely off-balance abilities to gain advantage and start the snow-ball effect. To counter it, I created this map in hopes that it will attract professional players to use it as a tool for their Internationals in the big silver screens.

    StoPCampinGn00b: It's quite a basic AoS map with its own style. I haven't tested this extensively, only playing the Master Gladiator hero in a 2v2 match.

    It's easy to learn and has a decent amount information in the quests. I think the item system nice to have, not over complicating things with recipes like most other AoS's while also having your custom item system. The structure of hero abilities seems is organized but different. The terrain is pretty average, but I don't think it'd bother people much.

    There was a complaint that the dark ranger's abilities are overpowered and by looking at the briefly I think that's the case.

    But in whole, the map didn't seem buggy and is in the bounds of the rules. I haven't had the time to measure the balance in the map which is also why I won't rate it.

    People looking for a simple AoS map that's not a DotA clone should look here :).

    It is quite basic aos in my opinion, I tryed ghoul-based hero in SP. Let me suggest to diversity hostile (I saw only bandits) maybe allow them to drop items? I very like your ideas about gold mines (staying near + attacking) and game-time show at lumber&food position-thats funny and new for me. I think spells are quite good described. Good work. Give you 3/5.

    @ZiBitheWand3r3r
    Thank you for your rating! I guess you mean SP as in single player mode. The ghoul is the only custom hero I have designed, for the bandit neutral hostile, I have to admit it was rushed but next time in the near future there will be updates on that aspect of the game. The gold mine objective was initially designed to cover the spaces in the map and it was briefly implemented in imitation of the original gold mine mechanics from Warcraft. I am very serious when it comes to Hero ability balance and wordings as not to confuse the players. The format is very standardized and clear cut for easy reading. I do hope that the score can be a little higher :D

    Thanks :D

    23 Nov 15: Version 1.21 with the new improved item upgrades. I have no plans currently for neutral creeps and additional item system, the next update is probably going to be more Hero designs focus, meaning more Heroes will be added to the choice list. Currently there are 18 Heroes, each balanced and with their advantages and disadvantages. In this game the most important value to seek will be experience as the ability damage leveled can grant an exceeding amount of forward push to your game.

    Version 1.22: New Hero Spell Knight. Check out details above in Heroes tag.

    Version 1.23: New Hero Holy Paladin, read the details above in the description.

    Version 1.24: Added Frost Mage, read the details above in the description.

    Analyzing and playing your map for several times,I have to be honest! Here are the issues you must fix or improve or better change them:
    -the terrain looks kinda ugly,not having a normal design for a battle camp,the vegetation is very rare or in some places inexistent.
    -the abilities of each hero,are unbalanced or even without relation.An advice for you,the skills must depend each on the other,to make the respective hero a good one,and enjoyable,cause if not,your game won't be played by many.
    -the items aren't even normal.The morphed item that gives you 3 points to all stats,its actually nonsense,cause it results from the combination of items that give you about 8 or 9 points to each attribute,but when morphing that item,it decreases to 3 points...looool!!!!
    -another issue....cmon now...the attack damage of the creeps isn't even equal...if some are stronger,they will always advance to the enemy's base...loooool again!!!! The creeps must be equal in HP,attack damage and armor...not to mention you added mana points to the melee creeps!!!!! Remove it
    So you drastically need to reborn Defense of the Base!! And next time...analyze your map,which momently is pathetic from my point of view! And I am sure other people think the same thing -_-...Try learning from my game War of Sanctity ! Maybe you will get some knowledge about what people want to see in an AoS.They want to see both action and strategy,War of Sanctity offers that mix,yours not!

    Thank you for your "honest" review, I am getting really tired of this so please, I was just trying to help I make many maps before so I come from experience you tell you that, firstly balance means that the game is fair for players to play with and or against each other in a game, counterplay etc. I don't want to shove your comments aside but of course every words have their own meanings which is why I tend to avoid myself from using certain words until situations like this.

    Your judgement is mainly critical at this point, however, which I practically got no reason of understanding which will then lead me to taking this comment as a rant or inaccurate representation of one self I will be completely serious here because if words don't make any sense or inaccurate (example aiming for the rabbit and shooting at yourself) is pointless and also toxic.

    You suggestions are as follows:
    I kid you not Warcraft has a very standardized tileset and it's a game from the "2005" or so era and you can't say it's going to be pretty as "compared" I mean we are all making map mods just cut some break will ya? I will try to add some doodads when I am done with like gagillion amount of updates that I am planning for the patches.

    Please be specific about "imbalance" because from version 1 I have been focusing on that regard as to mathematically formulas and unicorns. I totally understand what you mean by ability synergy but I mainly get my designs to converge on crediting blizzard for their hard work instead of ignoring that and go straight full custom. That is my style and I hope you understand. I know with synergies like a stun then pull then permanent slow then ultimate will be fun, easy, imbalanced and entertainment but what I want is clearly very different effect.

    First of all for starters, to qualify as a professional teacher, one must pass all the examinations to proof that their knowledge is acceptable at a certain degree (there are 360 degrees) If the required degree is 10, and you have a blurry scope of say 300, then you are 30 times out of accuracy which means you need to learn more to get better. That's why here I will attempt to give you some hidden information that may be you might have missed from the test plays yourself. The items are using the new upgrade system, when you buy tier one nothing happens but when tier two item is purchased, the system searches for a tier one in your inventory, upgrades it and refund your *GOLD*, which means you don't lose anything because your GOLD is given back to you, which obviously you missed so I am going to say don't guess too much, don't assume too much I hope you take this seriously. You are right I will give you that but do you know? You don't know I'll give you the answer, every creep has different attack swing time and that will give a delay, Rifleman has no missile delay but skeletal mage has missile delay, Undead tower has a slow starting attack reaction time, Human towers react faster when they detect an enemy. These factors therefore given the correct advantages and disadvantages will determine their difference in attack values which that of course is a hidden value which I might not blame you for it, I hope you learn some things. Therefore, with this I will add a gold text every time player upgrades item to fix this misunderstanding.

    Finally I thank you for the time to play the game and have a wonderful day ahead, I do hope for a second review and peace :3



    Update V1.38: New item upgrade system that requires low tier item.

    Update V1.39: Many hero balance changes to allow better game-play.

    You must know it's big advantage to have low sile-size map, it tooks about 1-2sec for new players to download.
    Just played 1.39ver 3v3:
    Some people unfortunatelly left but we continue to the end with 2players.
    Please remove Shades for non active slots/or leaving players.
    Maybe even small multiboard, where we can check who is actually playing/what level has. That would be nice to have that info aviable.

    Took us a minute to figure out the items upgrade system, 1st time playing players also ask about that (player wants to buy stronger item that is not an item in fact, but an upgrade, we didnt know about that at the begining) :plol:
    Maybe it would be good idea to change item-upgrades description. (I know there's info on 2nd line what item will be upgraded by buying this new item-upgrade, but it is not clear for new players at all)
    But player cannot lose gold by mistake: that is fair, well implemeted.:pwink:

    Leaving player: I notice that you gave control over leaving player's hero. In most aos that hero is removed, and sometimes gold is giving for leaver's team. Please consider this.

    Ok, now my MountainKing: thunder clap + storm bolt ..and.. out of mana:D Maybe lower his skill's mana cost.
    A guy had FireLord (dont remember in-game names). His passive (living volcano) is overpowered in my opinion.

    Do I understand this corectly: 1st team that destroy enemy tower gains tower upgrade? I saw also creeps have upgrade 1-1 but don't know where it comes from. Generally: good job, keep improving :psmile:

    @ZiBitheWand3r3r

    Thanks for the review! I will check if I can do anything to the wisp/ghost at the start of the game. The item upgrade system is still not very refined I guess and I will address it at v1.41 hopefully update it soon.
    Regards to leavers, the hero control is given to allies and gold is shared automatically every few seconds, hope that clear some doubts you had. If the shared gold is more than 10, it will appear above your hero.

    Regards to Mountain KIng(Stone King), his mana cost is high and there are only two possible builds as the 100 mana cost, do take note the storm bolt is a killer ability in actuality. It was not intended for sure but I hope you see that thunder clap is only useful for pushing and storm bolt otherwise, for hero kills.

    Regards to towers, whenever a team gets an enemy tower, they upgrade. Scenario being, you kill a tower (No gold reward, exp given on death) your allied base is upgraded. The creep upgrade that you mentioned was activated by the 30 minutes upgrade mark. Every 30 minutes, each team gain an additional melee spawn and an additional range spawn. All toops are upgraded once in attack, armor, health and move speed. Killing the enemy Barrack will trigger attack and armor upgrade, however, no health or movement speed upgraded. Killing the enemy Farm only upgrade health once. This means that the only way move speed is upgraded is through the natural 30 minutes upgrade.

    Thanks T_T.. It's been harsh times but I will add more things mainly heroes :)

    hey, good job with item description, but why added delay at start
    news: today we rip gold mine :D we had feeling that something shows up (treasure maybe) but we had bad luck:D
    you may look at this http://www.hiveworkshop.com/forums/pastebin_data/w2ygec/_files/defense.w3g i think some skills with 6sec cd are to strong, especially ranged hero (i tryed archmage today) can shot fireball + frost nova few times so melee opponent had small chances to survive;]

    Just saw the replay, looks like you guys had so much fun except for the leavers part ;p

    Now for QnA, the item stock delay was added to prevent players from buying items directly after picking hero followed by running to the bandits, killing them all with the item advantage and level up to 2, channel return to teleport back for healing, meet the 2 minute preparation mark and run back to lane. I do that all the time, at least now it is very difficult for most hero to achieve that without item advantage. Comparatively going straight to the gold mine is also another possible way which is more efficient than bandits but grants totally no experience. Yep about the gold mine I don't think there will be any rewards since the 11k gold is really enough for a spot ;p but I will urge players not to kill it as the gold mine regenerate at 1 gold per second. I will look into adding more health for melee heroes but that will have to wait for some balance "laning" phases since ring of regeneration is very unrated right now. That's about right, without ring of regeneration the hero will die if you just spam attack and add in two or three spells.

    Version 1.40: Fixed hero balance issues.
    Version 1.41: Added new item description for upgrades and many new hero changes!
    Version 1.42: New Hero Black Rider, more terrain, items buffed.
    Version 1.43: Many hero damage and ability adjustments.

    Hey,
    today I have proposal for you :psmile:
    just spend an hour to create example of diffrent items upgrade, I belive more user-friendly. I like your idea to create 12 basic-type items (plus books) and then upgrade those items. I think I use, what I wrote in the future map, but for now please look and cosider this solution;]
    So you will need only 2 shops instead of 6. One for items, one for books.
