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.

    Great map! The Only Feedback I Have Is The AI Is OP. They Level Up Too Fast.

    AI's leveling speed depends on if their set to Easy/Normal/Insane - so just use a lower one unless you want a challenge.

    SO what's new in this map? Im not liking this map cuz in DOta its easy to pawn heroes and items there are cool, so BALANCED! But the one I like in your map is its more of tactics. Because you can even control tower like that in this game unlike in DOta no. Not to offend you on my statement of I like DOTA more but I like your map too! +REP to you!

    How exactly do the tavern heroes work? On one particularly long playthrough I noticed a Marksman and Blackguard became available for hire again (they were the first and third I'd hired), rather than respawning normally. Also it'd be nice to have a visible cooldown so you know when the tavern is open again.

    So when's the official launch of the stand alone EotA? Seriously. It should happen.

    Gilles: Yea, I wish.

    Tavern heroes only hang around for 2 deaths before going back to the tavern, and taverns have a 5 minute cooldown between purchases. It hadn't occurred to me how unclear this was in game.

    Also just a general FYI: There's been a lot of "test" releases on the official forums, in this subforum. They tend to have a sufficient new changes that I don't deem them worthy for release here, even though they're actually fairly stable. In other words, updates to this map aren't quite dead yet.

    They won't let me rate it before commenting it... sigh

    This map goooood there isn't any game or other map like it, that's why I still play it because no game/map/younameit has done it better for me. Been playing it, now I can say it, for 10 years!, though there been periods of time where I didn't play war3 at all (damn wow), but I did played it on 2004-2007 and now I'm still playing it, I retook it about one and half year ago and we do games every weekend Saturdays and Sundays.

    This is a macro game/map make no mistake, except for the smaller maps (yes this map has 5 maps layouts on the same map), where map control mechanics matter more than trying to pk a lot.

    Right now the AI is really good, maybe too much, the hero balance is quite good with few exceptions, check the forums to check what's going on about it.

    My only complains are some nerfed heroes, again check the forums, and the capture mode currently not working, but for the rest it's awesome.

    You can play it alone, with other players against the AI, it can be quite challenging, or human vs human.

    This is one of the best maps since Warcraft 3 history. Really. If this map turn into a MOBA game, Damn! Good.
    The only thing I hate are skills that Hero-target only. You might want to make those skills Creep-target too. Like Fenir, that guy(wolf) sucks when no hero on the map.

    This game is quite fun. The AI is good and the game play is good.
    This is a great game because there are different ways on different maps to achieve victory
    and there's nearly no bugs that i've seen. :smile:

    Is this still under development?

    This seems way more detailed that Dota. I like that skills scale based on attributes and there are actually build options (playing the same hero differently). This is what i want from a moba.
    I played one game but i noticed there are no cooldowns for the skills when there should be :)

    Are there any ppl interested in playing this?

    EDIT:
    Whats the max lvl? can u max all your skills?
    Also skills dont mention their range.

    This "AoS" is like the World War 3 2000 years in the future. It has no sense at all, skills are totally imbalanced and too much chaos is caused by them. The huge amount of effects is what makes this map played. I can't see the personal role of a hero(tank, support, carry, assassin etc) since all of them are like , use a spell, cause chaos everywhere. I can't give it more than 3/5.

    If shortly, every/any EotA is addictive for dozens of hours. I have just spent 5 hours playing this and found myself very late evening.
    the same with the EotA:Exodus which i played long ago and just recently 3 times. You guys make amazing maps with unusual appearance, skills heroes...just love your maps/games. You guys rule!!
