Map Info:
Defense of Stormwind is a mix of HeroDefense, a little TD, PvP and hopefully some interesting bossfights.

Stormwind is currently the humans greatest city. But now the Lich King have heard of Deathwing's arrival, and is
nerdraged to hear about the popularity around him. So now he has marched into the rocky mountains,
covering Stormwind's backdoor, which also is the least defended spot of the city. Reinforcements have to be called,
extra defenses have to be built, and heroes need to be summoned!

-Up to 4 players on Stormwinds side.
-Up to 4 players on the Lich Kings side.
-Upgrade your headquarter to either a Defensive HQ or Offensive HQ. Defensive HQ making tower building avaible. Offensive HQ making reinforcements and powerups available. Choose your playstyle!
-ALOT of undead units, with variety in unit types and looks. Don't get stuck!
-Special events and interesting boss fights. Boss fights with interaction of players is not so often seen.
-Undead units grow stronger each minute. Progression is a must!
-Mysteries and secrets. Why is even the Lich King attacking in such a rugged and rocky terrain?

Playable Map Size: 155x116
Trees/Destructible: 2084
Doodads (Other): 5216
Players: 1-8 | I have tried to balance the game triggers in a way, so the Defense of Stormwind can be played with only one player, or up to 8!

Main objective: The Stormwind heroes have been summoned to defend the Stormwind Gate, which is the only defense for the city. Use your gold to enhance your Hero, Army or Towers, or all of them. The undead units grow stronger every minute, so its important to find the source of this invasion quickly, move out!

There are four paths leading towards the Stormwind defenses (one for each player active). And there are total 5 undead bases pumping out units. But one base at a time, when you destroy the first base in your path, the next undead base gets activated, with even harder units, so you have to pull back to the main base to level and gear further up, in order to get to the next base.

Each tier base has one boss spawning ever 6 minutes. When Stormwind players kill this boss (which is very annoying), the boss respawns in the main base when the 6 minute timer is over again, for each time the boss spawns it gets more HP! So the Stormwind Heroes has to progress to the next tier base, to stop this boss getting too strong.

In order to destroy a base, the Stormwind Heroes has to destroy these Mystic Energy Forces (looks like a huge Whisp). The Energy Forces protect the surrounding spawning buildings (making them invulnerable).

Loss condition: The Stormwind Gate gets destroyed!

-The undeads have infested the mountains elite units in the south. They have been crazed by the undead invasion. Sooner or later, they have to be freed. Go into the mountains and destroy these mighty creatures of the nature, to get a high bounty.
-Gather Titan Essences and get access to the Legendary items. Titan Essences has a small drop chance from Rock Chunks around the map. They can also drop with a higher drop chance, from the two last undead bosses; Deadeye and the Icecrown Overlord.

The Lich King's special units is the kind of units players can controll. They are UNITS you can buy at a building in the main undead base. You choose between Infestor, Sneaker, Chiller and Remaker. One of these units will be avaible for 1 Food, and when you loose it, you can choose one of them again. (Undead players have max 1 Food).

The Lich King's SWAT unit, the undead players, is not here to only hunt down Stormwind Heroes. They need to help the undead forces damage and destroy the Stormwind Gate. Also, its the SWAT unit's task to defend the Mystic Energy Sources from Stormwind attacks. Your main task, as an undead player, is to make the Stormwind heroes isolate themself near the Stormwind Gate!

The undead players can also buy power ups for the whole Lich King army, buy own units and mass up and buy for example "Endurance"; which increase HP of their own units by 10%.

Loss condition: The Lich King dies.

Terrain Description:
I have been playing some HeroSiege/Defense, TD etc. and got really bored of all the symetrical and simple terrain. Its easy to path units and finish, but I really can't make my first map like that. Therefore I have used a couple of hours extra on terrain.

I also thought about the way nature dies. In some maps I have seen a undead invasion coming, so they have splitted the map in 2, one half green and full of life, and the other half with blight everywhere and no life. Anyway I wanted to make the nature die slowly. The trees for example is: Green, Orange/Brown and then blighted. So is the grass changes. The undeads has just arrived and the change from life to death isnt that quick. So the forest, grass and flowers is slowly getting swallowed by the blight, infestations and maggots. You have to save it!

Also, the nature near the water is the strongest. You see for example the lake have blight all around it, but is still fighting.

Some areas still is pretty open and with little doodads, but when all these
undeads mass towards the Stormwind gate you need a lot of space!

As for the placing of Blight, I would like to experiment with its effect on undead units' higher HP regeneration on Blighted Ground. Most of the undead units have higher HP regeneration on blight, and some units have MASSIVE regeneration on blight, which almost force you to find an unblighted spot, and drag the unit to that spot, in order to kill the unit faster, or kill it at all!

Other from that, I have just tried out things in the terrain editor. Doing what I can with my little knowledge.



The Stormwind Gate


Stormwind Lake


Stormwind Farming Village


These undead ghouls will at some point in the game chop all the trees down, opening a new path for the undead army


Refreshing spot and shops


Maggots have eaten through the woods efficient and silently, to open up paths for the undead invasion


The Stormwind Guardian is watching over the mountains


A Stormwind fishing village burned and infested by the Lich King


Two Stormwind heroes defending against a undead attack


Units Description:
There are 2 Forces in this map, The Stormwind Defense and The Lich King.

The Stormwind Defense controlls all the units that are sent towards the undead forces with the Offensive Headquarters, aswell as having up to 4 allied players on their team. TSD also have some units around the map fighting the undead, to make the map more dynamic. The humans and dwarves is the main protectors of Stormwind City, but since the great nature around Stormwind is in danger, the Night Elves have come to aid Stormwind, therefore there will be some Night Elf heroes aswell.

The Lich King controlls all the undead units sent towards the Stormwind Gate with the periodic waves, they also own the undead bases with the Mystic Energy Forces. The Lich Kings forces have up to 4 allied players, which can pick one special unit from a shop in the main undead base. So The Lich Kings forces is mostly everything hostile on the map for Stormwind, except for those 4 Special Units controlled by eventually players, and their other units.
The reason I haven't given the undead heroes, is because 4 undead heroes with all these undead units against 4 Stormwind heroes, would have been overkill. Therefore there are units with abilities instead that can work together to take down one hero at a time. Even if the undead Special Units don't kill a hero, they can slow them down in order for the game to progress longer, resulting in stronger units from The Lich King.

As for the TD part in this. I don't want towers to dominate the game. Therefore I currently have the number of total towers on 4 for each Defensive Headquarter. If you upgrade to the Defensive Headquarter, you will get the "Place Tower Foundation" ability which costs 50 mana (Defensive Headquarters have 200 mana). Tower foundations can be upgraded to either a Basic Frost Tower, Basic Fire Tower or Basic Buffer Tower. All these three types of towers, can be further upgraded.

Modes and Commands:

I have chosen to try out a different difficulty system than what I've seen before. No matter what mode you choose, you start with the same HP on the undead units, but the mode you choose will affect the handicap+ The Lich King's units get every minute. Mode also affect the amount of gold you get each fourth second. Mode does not affect gold bounty from units!
Gold income:
The Stormwind players get gold from killing undead units owned by any of the undead players. They also get gold each fourth second depending on the mode set.

The Lich King players get 2 gold each fourth second (+1 for each Stormwind player active). The Stormwind heroes also award 200 gold if killed.

Use your gold:
The Stormwind heroes can use their gold to buy Offensive Units/Towers, Upgrades for their units or buy several of the 58 items ingame, including 3 Legendary Items (Which also need Titan Essence).

The Lich King players can use their gold to buy units they can controll and upgrades for their units. But remember, the undead Special Units can alone cause much trouble for Stormwind if used properly.

-easy/-normal/-hard/-veryhard is the four difficulty modes in DoS.
-si | Shared Income. This command shares all your gold income by 15% for each player ally you have.
-roll | Roll. The roll command can be typed by all players. It allows for rolling on items or other things that can't be agreed upon.

Author's notes: This is my first time with WC3 editor, under two months ago I didnt even know what was possible with the editor, so I still have a lot to learn. I want to finish as much as possible before WoW: Cataclysm release. Help and suggestions on how to make unfunctioning triggers work properly is much appreciated. Criticism on the project generally is also most welcome!

Hostile elite units can be found in the mountains south of The Stormwind Gate. These units give a high amount of gold when killed. They can be hard to kill, so only go for it if your base is defended properly. The undead players can also sneak in and try to defeat them for the gold.

The Lich King has built lumber camps in the woods to the north. The ghouls will at some point harvest all the trees, opening a new path for the undead forces into the farming village. Keep your eyes open!

Boulder the Mountain King has been trapped under the ground by the Lich King, behind the Stormwind Guardian. Bring three heroes to the magical runes and set him free.

The cave next to the spawning spot of Undead Players can be used to move fast to one of the two cave outputs, take a chance!

Q: What is and how do I get Titan Essence?
A: Titan Essences is immensely strong materials, which can be combined with magic of Mother Earth to create mighty weapons. Titan Essences has a small drop chance from Rock Chunks or the two last bosses from the Lich King; Deadeye and the Icecrown Overlord.

Q:What does the different colors on all the items mean?
A: Green colored items means that they are uncommon and a little better than white items.
Blue colored items means that they are superior compared to white items.
Purple colored items means that they are epic compared to white items.
Orange colored items are the strongest items in Azeroth and is called Legendary items.

Q: Why doesn't the undead players have Heroes?
A: Because they have the chance to buy a lot of undead units in the Slaughterhouse, a hero plus all these unit would've been overkill.

I like the idea but... the map is just too big. It will be hard to balance and besides, it’s really hard to complete. I myself have never managed to complete a map because of the fact that I keep overextending myself. I don’t know exactly what you have in mind for the map but… it’s just impossible to have action all over the map with just four players.
Therefore, I’d really recommend you to make the map much, much smaller… If you don’t want to do that, (But please, a bit smaller at least! :clol:) then design the gameplay so that the fights only take place in one territory at a time. This will give the map a more intense and (hopefully) exiting play style. An overwhelming amount of things you need to do is never fun...

Other than that, I like the map. Your ideas with the units and the way you divide them into specialists look pretty cool too. Keep it up!

One last thing, how about adding a player or two to control the forces of the evil side? It could spice the game up a bit, almost making it into a custom game where you have to micro your own of forces and try to win as many battles as possible. After all, you maybe don’t have to lose as the good side only because all of your heroes die. Resurrecting them before the next fight commences while the undead players gain some kind of reward may keep the game’s momentum up, especially if you finish the game with a big clash in front of the gate for example*. (Whoever wins the final battle wins the game, you get it.)

*That sentence is probably really weird, but I'm lazy so I'm going to keep it :cgrin:

Thanks for replying!

Yes its pretty big, but don't know how to make a finished terrained map smaller :p
But there is alot of space in order to make the way to the undead bases longer, so you have to fight more undeads before you get there. I have also thought about giving the Stormwind Heroes some kind of teleportation when they take down a undead base. In order to get back to the base quicker if something happens.

And another thing, to give the undead Players more to do, is to maybe give them 1gold each second(?) and give them a shop, where they can buy units or events in order to damage the Stormwind Defense and Heroes. They can also buy alot of units instead, and mass up.

And maybe give the Stormwind Heroes a Scoreboard for kills, and the undead Players one for number of abilities cast on Stormwind units and Heroes.

EDIT: Also Im planning to make the bosses that come from the bases every X minutes Rescueable, so the undead Players have the chance to controll the bosses! If the boss isnt rescued within 1 minute, he will go for himself, in the name of the Lich King computer.
