Summary of the map/gameplay objectives
Pick a class, kill prawns, destroy Ziggurats, fight the other team to kill ANC Bosses, fight the other team to score points with a Rugby Ball at Hillbrow.

Features & Screenshots

[​IMG]
In depth summary

First team to 350 points wins. The gameplay cycle goes as follows:

1. Destroy a Ziggurat - an ANC will spawn
2. Kill the ANC - it will drop a Rugby Ball
3. Take the Rugby Ball to the centre of the map (at the Hillbrow Tower) and hold position to score points
4. Repeat

Each ANC (Boss) they kill gives +15 points. Each Rugby Ball has 35 charges - while at the centre of the map (The "Hillbrow Tower") the balls will convert one charge into +1 points every 2 seconds until that Rugby Ball is used up. Players can be killed while holding a ball, and then the other team can pick it up and use it to score points.

* Map features:
-AoS style creep spawn paths with a difference: There are two types of "lane creeps" which spawn: Type 1 are allied to the bosses and are hostile to ALL human players. Type 2 are allied to ALL human players. Line of sight is shared by NEITHER of these types with human players. Line of sight is given to EVERY player of BOTH Type 1 AND Type 2's Towers - Ziggurats and Police Stations respectively.

The creep paths are Type 1 (Prawns) vs Type 2 (Metro Police). Whenever a creep spawning tower is destroyed, the tower will relocated to a random point within 7500 of the centre of the map, thus dynamically changing the creep paths as the game progresses.

-The map contains three types of Runes: MOERSA DAMAGE, POES-GROOT ARMOUR and BLIKSEM VINNIG Runes. These runes give bonuses to the carrying player, but when the carrier dies they will drop the rune (if it has remaining charges) and other players may pick it up.

-Players can buy items like in normal AoS maps (Recipes etc) but the map has a new class of item: "Ammo". Each player can buy one different ammo at a time to compliment their playing style. Ammo is used up with attacks.

-Bosses and Type 1 creeps (Enemy) spawn with one of 9 random creep abilities - things like from extra fast, increased damage/armour, a cleaving attack etc. These are made known to players via a colour change in the unit's team colour.
Bots/AI

Bots/AI/Computer Players are supported and are great for learning how to play.

Bots are programmed (in order of preference) to
A. Score points
B. Try survive
C. Take Rugby Balls to the Hillbrow Tower
D. Kill ANC
E. Kill towers

Bots also buy Gloves of the Rainbow Nation, and upgrade them to Cosatu's Equality.

    Mention in the description if the map is protected or not.

    Review:

    Gameplay:

    This is not like any AOS at all, There's no fixed base for a team, the creeps spawn at random locations across the whole map and the ziggurats you're supposed to destroy also move and are not at a fixed location.
    The map's idea is really awesome and kinda original, the humor is just a sweet bonus ^_^
    The bots are just an awesome feature, you will never be alone again <3
    Although the abilities aren't that custom, there's also no ultimate for a hero :<
    Oh and 'Groot Ammo' is supposed to increase your dmg, but you can only target enemy units and it damages them.
    There are also super-duper runes on the map, which really help you against enemy heroes.
    The skill hotkeys are also bound to QWER, which is always nice.

    Terrain:

    The environment is really neat, there's a lot of terrain tile variation, not empty at all, a lot of palms, very deserty like environment.
    The rivers are also smoothly done.

    Other:

    There's a tip command, which is nice, however it just tells you the objective.
    It would be nice if there were actual tips shown on the screen overtime with really helpful hints.
    The loading screen looks nice and is helpful.

    *Vinnig Skieter's tooltip isn't exactly understandable
    *Not a lot model/icon imports

    Rating: 4/5

    Awesome, thanks for the good review. Glad you liked the humor and the bot support :D

    Some tooltips have some Afrikaans in them for a few laughs - that why "Vinnig Skieter" isn't completely comprehensible unless you are from South Africa. Perhaps I should make it a bit clearer for those who don't speak the language...

    Shot for all the comments - they will be worked on :)

    [Edit]
    About the "AOS" classification of it... it not an AOS, granted, but its also not any other type of map. It does have many similarities to an AOS though, and saying "Misc/Other" isn't a very helpful description. :)

    this looks good, gonna play it soon...
    also why did you release 4 vers so fast? xD
    it would be better if you release 1 each month...

    EDIT:
    i tried it in single player and this was quite good...ANC Bosses were too hard..or is it cause of single player?
    when the game starts why do we have to w8 15 sec to pick a hero...? it's boring to w8...or atleast lower it to 5-6 seconds...
    another think that i don't like is the item recipe system-.-
    especially when playing a new map and don't know which shop has them item i need to combine them...
    i sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo hate it *_* (but it's just me)
    hahaha that was hillarious xD

    i was always so bad at reviewing a map so don't blame me xD

    good luck and happy map editing ;)

    EDIT:
    zOMG this is my 700th post!! xD

    EDIT 2:
    i liked your map so i tried it with other heroes too :D
    as it looks like the hero i got the first time was pretty weak...
    Riflemanne is pretty good against ANC...
    IMO you should include a "does not stack" or "stacks" ;D

    Thanks! Glad you like the map :D

    The four different versions are different maps, all with the same heroes, items, modes and mechanics. Think of it as similar to a FPS like Unreal Tournament where you play the same game every time, just on different maps. Each map has a unique flavour and layout, supplying different playing experiences. Easter and Beerfest are also smaller, so can be played comfortably with fewer people.

    Did you play single player with bots added? Try different techniques for taking down ANC members: don't try to take them on 1v1 - get your team or wait for the Metro Police to join the assault. Maybe try the "Easy Mode" by having Player 1 type "-em" during the first 15 seconds. Easy mode isn't as well balanced, but offers a good introduction to the game's systems.

    The 15 seconds wait is so that players can have a bit of time to asses the layout of the Ziggurats (as they change each game) and adapt a team strategy to take them down most efficiently. Also Player 1 can set the game mode during this time, similar to Dota.

    The recipes aren't too complicated, you should get the hang of them after a few games. :)

    What was the first hero you tried? I'll have a look at it.

    Thanks for the suggestions - always welcome! :)
