Enfo's TS:MT Edition 1.93
Enfo's Team Survival:MT Edition is, according to Blizzard, the best ETS mod on battle.net. The map has been developed since 2005 to bring you the perfect balance of all elements, including hero spells, game mechanics and more. The main effort of MT Team is to keep the version balanced, so people can freely play it without having to host All Random games, or having to play another version because of a balance flaw. Our concern is always to keep the game balanced, and not adding tons of stuff like most maps do. From beginners to pros, all players can play ETS:MT without having to worry about being killed by a cheap strategy using a broken hero.
We have a fast growing community of players that are so concerned about the game as we are, and keep suggesting new elements for the game, reporting bugs, and pointing how we can make the game even better.
Once upon a time, a guy named Enfo started a map based on a multiplayer forum-based rpg he was playing called DragonRealms. In this map, which he called Enfo's Team Survival, the players had heroes to control, each one based on each class present on DragonRealms, and they should fight waves of monsters also inspired in the bestiary of the same game. Back then, he had the support of many users from the long dead modforge forums, which helped Enfo to build an awesome map that quickly spread through battle.net and became one of the most played maps on every realm.
After some time updating the map, Enfo was forced to quit the project to give proper time to his graduation in sociology. This could be the end of the project, if at any given time an unprotected version wouldn't have leaked and other map makers had access to this map. Out of nowhere, unofficial versions of Enfo's Team Survival started to be released by many different map makers, from beginners to experienced ones, and some of them got pretty popular, even more than the original version (a few to mention are ETS Tournament Edition, ETS Ripped Off, and ETS Remix Naked), but even those were left behind by their own makers.
After a few warcraft patches, the good old versions of Enfo's Team Survival became VERY bugged. The patches changed some commands of the World Editor, and every map that were not being updated got useless.
During this dark age, when the most played versions got obsolete, and all that that remained was a bunch of rigged and poorly made maps, that MT Edition was born.
Enfo's Team Survival: MT Edition was created to surpass the rigged versions and give an option for those who wanted to properly play ETS. It was designed with balance being it's goal, so that players wouldn't need to worry about who was the most rigged hero, or the strongest item, or the most cheap strategy, it was all about picking a hero that suited the playstyle and use it to fight the waves of enemies.
After the interview for the Meet your Makers, MT Team finally had a chance to talk to Enfo himself, and during the conversation Enfo said he was glad the his work was kept in such a good development, and that he supported the efforts of MT Team to make it an even better map.
After more than four years of work, MT Edition is now the most played version of Enfo's Team Survival, and even one of the most hosted maps on battle.net according to MapGnome.
ETS:MT has a variety of exclusive features compared to other ETS maps, among them are:
Game Modes: MT Edition gives the Host the ability to set game modes to the game. These game modes will change the gaming experience for players and can even change the game into a whole new different style. Some of the most used game modes are Draft, Extra Bounty, Solo and Random Mode.
Support Monsters: The waves of monsters spawn two different kind of creatures. While one of them face the Heroes the usual way, the other one supports its allies with spells, auras, passive skills, or ranged attacks.
Unique Heroes: Some heroes in MT Edition were designed by the MT Team and thus are exclusive to this version, a few that can be listed are the Summoner, Sniper, Spiked Tree, Time Mage, Faenrae Champion and others.
Learning Curve: Intentionally, there are just a few combo items in ETS:MT. That and other things contribute to the very soft learning curve of the map. You don't have to worry about what items are good for the combo item that is required for another combo item. The heroes are also very easy to play, and the map doesn't have complicated hero combos or spells used to exploit cheap strategies.
Tips: For the players new to the map, random tips are displayed telling the basics of the game, to make it even easier to be played. The tips can be disabled.
Rematch: After the match ends, players can stay in the game for the rematches. This way players can play any amount of matches on the same game.
Balance: MT Team always had the motto "Balance is Everything", and that's why MT Edition will always work with balance being the top priority. That's why players can always play the map without having to worry about which is the most rigged hero to play with or item to buy.
