Destiny of Lordaeron

Submitted by HERON
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
Hi guys, this is my first campaign and i hope you like it.
My english isn't very good so i apologise for that.

Description:
A campaign about Arthas inspired by the human campaign in Reign of Chaos, involving his battles with the Blackrock clan and the Scourge. Some of my maps are similar to the ones in RoC, but with a few changes i've made.
During some parts of the campaign you will control Uther and his army.

Important to note:
* There are also new models and spells.
* Heroes can get to 15 level.
* It's impossible to skip cutscenes, since i didn't know how to do that, so sorry about that.
* Don't use cheat codes, this will ruin the fun in the campaign.
* If you find a problem with my campaign, please write it to me in this thread or in a conversation and i will try to fix it.
* And one last thing, i hope you enjoy it! :)

Changelog:
1)The grammar is partly fixed-thanks to Championfighter25
2)Captain Falric now has abilities
3)Guard tower(elves) is fixed
4)Footmen no longer change to crossbowmen, you can now train them from the barracks
5)Removed marketplace in chapter 7
6)The undead's attack has returned to normal
7)Uther's book now contains spells
8)The attacks in chapter 6 have become a little easier to defend against and their timing has been changed
9)The time to wait for reinforcements in chapter 6 has been changed to 25 minutes.
10)The time to escape from the cave in chapter 9 has been changed to 25 minutes.
11)In chapter 4 the key will be removed in the end of the mission.

If i could rate the gameplay i would have given it 4/5 stars but the horrible balance,plot holes and horrible grammar killed it.From gameplay,terrain and technical side it's a very good campaign and i must say that story got some potential for a...

Firstly, you need to improve your thread's description, add screenshots and explain the differences from the original campaign. I understand that you are not good at English so I won't address that problem but you can always find people good at it...

    I would advise you to improve the openings of your future campaigns (if you decide to make more) because first impressions matter a lot more than you may think. Usually when someone doesn't have enough patience to play through 2 - 3 Chapters to see if the campaign is really worth playing, the first minutes are what decide if he will stay or exit. I didn't bother to finish the prologue due to it failing to catch my attention with good characters, an interesting story with well-written dialogues or some unique approaches to the terrain and challenging gameplay. I recommend you to use some program such as Grammarly to help you with the writing of your maps and work more on the map design, the decorations are okay-ish but the layout is just made to make you run around and waste time, with no easter eggs and dead ends everywhere, a few shortcuts that open up as you progress would strongly improve the map. Rewards given by the quests are quite disappointing and most of the items sold by the shops were garbage.

    That is a weak point and also an indirect insult.

    Please avoid necroposting. Replying to an almost two year old message is totally useless in this case especially when it's related to drama.

    Let's say you start watching a series, you watch the first episodes and you didn't like it, would you proceed to watch the whole series on the premise of it being any better towards the end? Not everyone has time for that.

    Of course, but then you don't rate based on the first pages.

    Great gameplay. God awful dialogue/grammar. Find someone to fix your script. These are stupid problems to have.

    Currently on mission 7, I think the gameplay is great.
    I'll just note some things that bothered me:
    - first mission has a bit too much running around, I'd suggest placing some teleporters/waygates
    - balance; let's talk about heroes first.
    Uther:
    1st spell is OP, nothing dies if Uther wills it, while his 2nd spell is very bad and utter waste of mana. Maybe you could replace it with a passive?
    Ultimate is weird for a Paladin, because it's pure destruction, and damages or outright kills anything, even frienfly units. Spell book is nice to have, although Healing Wave is redundant, since Uther already has a super healing spell which is much better.
    Right now Uther is an engine of destruction and makes your other units near him basicaly immortal :D

    Sylvanas
    Quite Qtrong and I like her abilities, only the Lightning Arrow doesn't work with her tripple-arrow passive?

    Jaina
    I think you can remove the magic shield, since she doesn't have have enough mana for it, because of other, better spells, being used more often

    Admiral
    His spells are quite weak and has no inventory but I guess he's more of a side character anyway.

    Arthas
    Maybe adding exact numbers on his auras, so we see exactly how much they benefit us?

    Balance
    Difficult to talk about player's units since it's all about heroes supporting them with their powers.
    In the high elf mission where you gather the thee moon keys, I think the gate should have have a bit more HP, to have have more time clearing the map and getting some items.
    Also please nerf Gargoyles, they're so hard to kill :D

    All this is based on my personal preferences, the campaign is perfectly playable as it is.

    BUT!
    Please do something about the dialogue and anything that you wrote, because it's bad :D It doesn't affect gameplay, but does affect immersion and general satisfaction. :)

    I'm having a lot of fun playing this campaign, reminds me of the good times I had when playing original W3 campaign.

    POSITIVES
    - Well made terrain
    - Interesting new spells and abilities
    - Some new units
    - Very enjoyable gameplay
    - Cinematics are pretty good

    NEGATIVES
    - Some minor bugs (for example - even after completing a quest in the first chapter, the quest mark above the quest giver doesn't dissapear)
    - First chapter is kinda boring (too much walking)
    - Bad grammar in dialogue
    - Heroes sometimes feel like they're a bit too OP

    In conclusion, Destiny of Lordaeron is a decent campaign that you clearly put a lot of work in, which is appreciated. Keep up the good work, buddy!
