Eve of the Apocalypse: Twilight, often referred to as EotA, is an exceptional Aeon of Strife-style map with distinctive gameplay and custom graphical effects. In this epic clash for survival, two factions are at war over an ancient artifact of immense power, with the loser facing inevitable doom in the coming apocalypse. Strategy and teamwork will be necessary to ensure victory.

Features

  • Five different battlefields with their own unique objective
  • Variety of map options to customize the playing experience, such as draft mode or changing the spawn rate
  • Decide which faction you belong to from the three different factions that have their own specialized units
  • 38 playable heroes with six custom skills each
  • Item tempering allows a simple, yet versatile way to gain stronger items
  • Emphasizes teamwork and assisting the team by coordinating with allies and supporting troops
  • Advanced computer AI to fill empty player slots or take over leavers


Quick Tips

  • Use teleports at the various bases to quickly enter battle. Heal at fountains, tier 2, or tier 3 bases.
  • Type the "-zoom" command to have a wider view of the game. Recommended: "-zoom 2000"
  • Type the "-temper" ("-t") command to quickly upgrade items. "-temper x", where x is the slot of the item.
  • Enable all pick (AP) by having Random Races on. Cannot be used in single-player mode.
  • Enable draft mode by having Full Shared Unit Control enabled.
  • Enable random hero mode (AR) by having Random Hero enabled. This works with draft mode.
  • The difficulty set for the AI (Easy/Normal/Insane) affects how fast they level and their purchasing power for items.

    Yay, 1.12. It's been ages since the release of 1.11 :)
    It's a nice AoS, I'm yet to try out the latest version though, so I'll say no more this time.

    Pretty ok map but...
    1) "NOOB"-text is annoying. I can get rid of it myself but others often don't. On the other hand, if I don't want to upgrade scroll on the altar I still have to see that damn text flying around.
    2) Lots of things to learn. Very confusing for the beginners. You should use Loading Screen space to tell goals, tips and tactics. Not to tell any damn story. Stories are secondary. The game itself is the main purpose. When the cinematic ends and game starts - nobody thinks about the story anymore.
    3) Grim Hag's "Charge" ability is imbalanced. I can guess that there are lots of other abilities that needs also balancing.
    4) The idea is pretty basic and very DotA-like. I am already bored of DotA which doesn't make this game any better. Don't clone DotA do new maps with new ideas.

    i think this is not like that. this is more fun, more challenge than DotA, and this map not clone DotA. this is aos map, and DotA is aos map too, so it may have any same gameplay, but not clone it.
    anyway, nice map but it provide lag to me... 8/10

    Hey DarnYak, I haven't played this new version but I just wanted you to know that your map was one of the maps which inspired me to venture into the editor and make my map (A Land Divided AoS), which while I must say is likely nowhere near as intuitive as yours, I've grown pretty proud of. Your map was one of the few high quality AoS maps around when I couldn't stand to play DotA, and it's always been a blast. I'm going to try this new version straight away, and then give you a rating which I expect will be a 5, unless you updated with something that broke the map XD

    Edit: Haha yep. Wow man, the last version of this map I'd played was 1.11e, and this latest change is what I call an UP-DATE. 5/5, absolutely. Can't wait to try out all these new classes :)

    This is easily my favorite warcraft 3 map ever made. 5/5 excellent in every way.

    I wish there were more terrain regions and heroes, but shit you've got heroes coming already and I wouldn't doubt terrains.

    You should know who made this map first, dota clone eota.
    This is the best map ever, dota has very limited features, eota more fun, more challenging..

    And you should know too considering both DotA and EotA are based on AoS and neither is copying each other.

    I'm kidding, I think it's a bit OP too, but there are definitely ways around it. Nuke it hard enough and it comes off pretty fast.

    So what's up with this new Fel Orc I heard about on the eota forum? How do I get him?

    You need to modify the additional settings before the game starts (before you begin hosting)

    It's "random races" i believe (or is it random heroes...?)

    The new heroes are nice, but I believe for the way eota is played eidolon is a little overpowered. Between it's shield and it's stump it can become nearly invincible.

    I'd reccomend posting bugs or suggestions to the eota website though.

    even if u do...due to its pretty short cooldown he can set up his shield again in no time so u need 2 or more heroes to kill him

    I fought 1v1 with a friend, and he could fight me just fine. He had to revert to cheaper tactics since I could overpower him, but it all worked out in the end. He's a bit of an easy hero to play, but not necessarily OP. Or not that OP.

    That new Hero seems more OP to me.

    Yeah, he seemed a bit OP when I played him. The roots talent is way too good.
