Farmer vs Hunter
Remastered Build

Farmer vs Hunter returns in a new, remastered version - bringing many improvements in de-bugging and balance!


So most of you probably know the original Farmer vs Hunter map, as it is oftenly hosted over Garena and Battle Net. Those of you who played it more than once might have noticed, that although the original version is really fun to play, it is rather imbalanced and issues like drophack, -clear command cheat and tower-occupied spawn points make it completely unplayable once the players decide to abuse them.
Since me and a friend of mine (who is not yet registered on the Hive) loved to play the original map, we decided to fix these issues in a fast remake that would not only bring the long desired debugging and balance, but also a whole new map to explore.

Long story short, what originally started as a weekend project prolonged into a few-months-taking remake which does not only bring the fixes we originally planned, but also many new gameplay mechanics and improvements that bring the experience this map can create into a whole new level!

Main Improvements

•No Drophack! - In the original version, Farmers could get into places where Hunters could not - which could make them completely invincible (This was achieved by building under your farmer, which would drop him into the nearest pathable location - often behind otherwise unpathable trees).
•More Balance! - In the original version, it was enough for Farmers to build a half-decent wall and a Death Tower to become unconquerable. It was possible to build these in about 5 minutes of gameplay if you were lucky.
In our version, the Farmers have little to no chances of defending at first, and they need to rely on hiding, denying and escape routes.
•No more issues due to Unit Limits! - In the original version, you had to build a huge army if you wanted to catch and defeat the hunter. Not only the units became almost completely unresponsive once you got too many of them, but they could also lead to unpleasant FPS Drop and even Game Crash once you pushed the limit too far. In our version, you only have to build one unit (a Golem) which you must upgrade and equip with spells in order to catch and defeat the Hunter. Normal units are still present, but they are controlled by an intuitive AI, so you don't need to worry about micro. Even if you get too many of these, your units are still as responsive as ever. Not even getting too many animals can slow down their responsivity.
•No wolf-summon hack! - Hunters were able to summon Feral Spirits through trees and walls, right into Farmer's bases. This is no longer the case.
•Farmers can no longer prevent their animals from wandering around with the 'Hold Postion' command! - This brings a new gameplay mechanic which we like to call 'Livestock Management'. You need to build walls for your animals and make them spawn in the right directions, so they don't get in your way or give up your position by wandering out of the base. This new mechanic is also the reason why -clear command is no longer present.
•New strategies, new mechanics! - Farmers hidding their farms all around the map or turtling in one base? Hunters fighting the Farmer's lategame forces, or running around the map, hoping not to get caught? All strategies have their pros and cons and the game is adjusted accordingly!
New units and items create new possibilities! Even if the Farmers turtle too hard, Hunters can lay siege to their base with Bombard Towers or explosive potions. In order to kill the Hunters, Farmers can upgrade their Golems with projectile-based abilities or they can just rely on the mercenaries!
•Much more! - You will find many things has improved since the original version!


Please, do not play with less than two Hunters and five Farmers (5v2)! The game gets less fun and less balanced if you do!
If you find any bugs or imbalances, we're absolutely completely open for critique and every feedback is very welcome! This map is no longer in beta stage, but that does not mean we're not working on it anymore!

In any case, thanks for playing and vote 5! :D

Changelog

Ver. 2.8 (5th July 2012)
-Fixed the Anti-Drophack system. It didn't work in certain cases but it should be flawless now. (thanks to sheep for diagnosing this)
-Fixed the spawn-stuck-bug which could make farmers/mercenaries stuck after spawn. (thanks to sheep and Tanasren for pointing this out)
-Increased Peon movement speed and removed their bounty award.
-Decreased Exploding Potion range
-Changed the descriptions at Farms (Tanaseren again).

Ver. 2.9 (6th July 2012)
-Removed Magic Wall and Hunter that spawned for the red player at start. Sorry about that.
-Cliff-height damage bonus for towers increased to 30%
-Wind Walk Potion duration decreased to 20 seconds (60 when -progame mode is active)
-Price of Sappers reduced to 30 gold when -progame is active.
-Increased stock maximum for Sappers to 2 and decreased replenish time.
-Some minor terrain changes were done as well.

Ver. 3.0 (11th July 2012)
-Nerfed Attribute Bonus a lot
-Sheep and Pigs should no longer glitch out of your base when they upgrade
-Magic Wall should no longer be able to change it's position when erecting it.
-Based on a popular request, hunters got nerfed a bit when "-progame" mode is not active (they get less stats per level-up).
-Fixed the bug that made Invisibility Potion disappear from the merchant after buying it.
-Animals will no longer stay in game after kicking a player - they will die after 40 seconds, along with rest of his/her units.
-Maximum-animal limit is now fixed on an unchanging number (3 players - 300, 4+ players - 200. Before it was: 3 players - 300, 4+ players - 1050/Number of Players).
-Box-Throwing towers are a bit stronger now
-Decreased mana cost of Flare Gun
-Fixed description for Goblin's tree-boom abilty.
-Goblins no longer explode upon death.
-Peons now have a very short-ranged blink
-Armor of Magic and Iron walls set to 5.

Ver. 3.1 (17th July 2012)
-Randomization elements implemented! Some parts of the world gets randomized at start, making the map a little bit different every game! (Of course, this is limited by Warcraft's engine (it's not possible to change cliffs or minimap in-game), but should add some variety nevertheless).
-Nerfed Hunters some more in non-progame mode (they get even less stats per level up).
-Golem upgrades are better in non-progame mode (hit points upgrade increased from 40% to 60%, damage upgrade increased from 5 to 10, attack speed upgrade increased from 12% to 15%).
Let me know if you think this is enough or not!
-Maximum level of Far Sight decreased to 2.
-Area around pools is unbuildable now.
-Pools can be destroyed.
-Pools can be temporarily disabled with Poison Wall ability.
-Poison Towers can one-shot Farmers again, but...
-...Shared True Sight for Farmers gives ability to see through trees and cliffs, so it's easy to avoid these poisoned towers once someone researches this.
-Added -cam command which changes the distance of camera if your computer is strong enough to handle it (for example: -cam 2000).

Ver. 3.1b (17th July 2012)
-Fixed a bug where an area in the bottom-left corner of the map was sometimes unpathable although there was no debris there.

Ver. 3.2 (31th July 2012)
-Goblin Mines now take 7 seconds to activate. During this time, they are visible and won't explode when destroyed.
-Potion of Healing now has 3 minutes cooldown.
-Potion of Wind Walk now has 20 seconds cooldown.

Ver. 3.3 (7th August 2012)
-Huge balance changes: Basic Arrow Towers are much weaker at start, costs more and take longer to build.
-Hunters have much more HP at start, but gain less HP for leveling up than before.
-Increased damage for most mercenaries.
-Changed repair time and hit points of most towers.
-Shared true sight no longer takes food
-Golems no longer have Wind Walk buff all the time.
-Added "-i" command which shows the player's total income and counts his/her animals.
-Fog is less dense now, allowing players to use greater values in the -cam command.

Ver. 3.4 (8th August 2012)
-Bombard Towers are much stronger and a bit cheaper now! But...
...Non-tower buildings and Flame-Arrow Towers now have explosion-proof design that makes them immune to Bombard Towers.
-You can only build 15 Flame-Arrow Towers.
(This should help the Hunters counter tower massing strategies).
-Horn of the Clouds is cheaper, lasts 9 seconds and has bigger range, but only two horns can be sold during one game.
-True sight is a bit cheaper.
-Box towers are cheaper.
-Fixed hotkey for peon's blink.

Ver. 3.4b (9th August 2012)
-I've realized the randomization elements never really worked. Things were the same every time. Should be fixed now tho!
-The Hunters got a great nerf - they get less stats for level-up and they level up much slower once they reach level 6. Attribute bonus is also much weaker now.
-Some terrain has been changed, mainly the bases on top-right.

Ver. 3.4c (9th August 2012)
-Some spelling mistakes fixed
-Show income command (-i) no longer shows double values when spammed.

Ver. 3.5 (12th August 2012)
-Previous Anti-Drophack System allowed players to drophack in a different way. This should no longer be possible and the map should be 100% drophack free now!
-Farmers now have it harder to deny themselves. It's still possible, just not as easy.

Ver. 3.6 (25th October 2012)
-Hostfix command has been removed as it could cause the game to crash.
-Maximum level for Hunters has been set to 8 - This should give the Farmers some chances if the Hunters farm too much.
-The bounty for Farmers gets decreased with deaths. So if there are noobs who feed too much, they'll eventually feed less and less and less...

Ver. 3.7 (3th January 2013)
-Hunters can now have only one wolf summoned at a time. Wolfs are much stronger tho and additional levels toughen them up exponentially.
-Small cooldown (3.5 seconds) has been added to the Exploding Potion.

    Thanks a lot man - you're da best!
    Thanks! Although I'm not sure what you mean - animal wandering is still implemented. It forces the player to build fences and spawn the animals in them, so they don't wander off and don't get in the way.
    (But now you can control in which direction you want the animals to spawn (with building rally-points))

    Thanks so much! I can't take much credit for the idea - unless you mean the idea to remake this map :D
    I'll fix the spelling right away, thanks for pointing that out!

    I've really enjoyed that map and played it many times. Full of great features, terrain is great and I love the name Iron Penis. :D
    Even though I don't know the other versions I suppose this is one of the greatest versions, easily the best.
    I think you deserve 5/5

    I played two times as farmers :

    the hunters have to face golems only in the end right ? so it may become boring for them before

    i tried to make multiples bases, putting towers to destroy them before it becomes food, but it was time consuming and gold too so i had not much time to make my golem but i helped others by occupying the hutners.
    They had super golem and i made mine at 6 minutes lol so he had 2500 hp and few things like that but i also made a lot of mercenaries building. We almost got them but one of the golem fled (the strongest one).

    I wonder if you could make an option to control an "army" or/and some upgrades for it, because i don't wanna make a base since i have to hunt them.

    Loading screen said that few upgrades make golem as strong as hunters but it's false, even with 7000 hp and lot of dmg etc one golem can't kill a hunter late game.
    Basic golem is also way weaker than one basic hunter, while you wrote the opposite.

    Do we need to keep alive the chickens to get gold ? (it looks logical but...)

    EDIT : as Hunter :if you make a base as hunter, the mercenaries will all go there and die here. It makes mercenaries useless. When I had no base, i was going to die coz of mercenaries.

    In theory. Gameplay for both Farmers and Hunters seems to be boring when you first hear of them. Surprisingly, we always found it fun to play for both sides (the proof for that is this actual remake of the map).
    If by food you mean feed then YES! That's how the pros do it!
    Strange it took you so much gold and time - One boulder tower is basically enough to deny most of your livestock and one flame-arrow should cover the buildings :S
    Anyway, you were on the right track here! You might try doing it again with less, bigger bases perhaps (or by doing something else differently, since I'm not sure what went wrong in your case. Perhaps it was just a bad luck).
    Do you mean when playing as a Hunter or when playing as a Farmer?
    As Farmer, you can partially control mercenaries with Increase Motivation spell. The option to make other units, well, perhaps :p We thought of it but decided to leave it like this for now.
    If you mean for Hunters, buying and army of grunts can end surprisingly well but only if there aren't too many Golems (== too many nuke spells).
    Depends on the amount of feed the Hunters got.
    You are correct with the basic Hunter > basic Golem. But I can't remember where did we wrote that :S
    Wherever it is, it must have been done by a mistake. Where did you read it?
    Indeed.
    In some early beta versions, animals even had little +1 floating texts floating above them every income-tick, but we removed them later on (they seemed like a pointless cpu-consuming loop)
    Do you think we should bring this back?
    You are correct once again. These are the two strategies that counter each other (It's like training Marauders against Roaches in StarCraft 2. The Roaches aren't useless because they can be countered - Roaches are useless when they get countered).
    If you decided to not make a base as a Hunter and the Farmers get mercenaries, you can still get away with it - but only if you get enough potions.

    In any case, thanks for playing and for this AMAZING comment! It's really this kind of feedback we'd like to hear and you brought us just that!

    "Indeed.

    Do you think we should bring this back?"

    No, if it adds lag and it will make lone chickens more visibles to hunters, it will help them.
    But you should write it clearly, "EACH SHEEP ALIVE GIVE YOU +2 GOLD, DONT KILL THEM WITHOUT A GOOD REASON".

    "Strange it took you so much gold and time - One boulder tower is basically enough to deny most of your livestock and one flame-arrow should cover the buildings :S"

    I was making bases around the map and i put walls lvl 2 (otherwise i would have no time to kill my own animals), one Boulder tower and sometimes i put a frost arrow too and i kill my farm to 10%. It costs 220 for walls (if you put only 2, if you are in a good place, but since it's timed I had no time to search forever), then 250 for boulder, 200 for arrow, 600/800 for the farms. 1500 gold for a fuckin base. I had to make like 5-7 bases like that...

    Well my allies had not to worry thx to me but it was hard for me lol.

    And all the games I played, nobody ever killed their own animals, only me lol.

    "You are correct with the basic Hunter > basic Golem. But I can't remember where did we wrote that :S
    Wherever it is, it must have been done by a mistake. Where did you read it?"

    I guess in the loading screen or F9.

    Also you said to buy lot of potions as hunters, and i did that, but i didn't know that 100 gold was hard to get in later game, so i "wasted" a lot of gold on potions.
    What i mean is that your hints are not very useful for beginners.

    Suggestion :

    -add a sort of blink spell to get out of your own base with the golem or iwth the peasant without killing your upgraded wall or killing trees and having to make a new one and new towers...
    -one game a guy teamkilled one other, then he took his revenge and it sucked. I was Hunter so i couldn't know who I had to kick. Then i kicked one and the other had lost everything so he left. Dunno how you can fix that lol its not a suggestion.
    -units, even a farmer who resurects, can spawn in a "bugged place" on the north west near the river. I had to kill the farmer iwth a tower to debug him. Don't add a -suicide command it would be abused :p


    For the moment I stopped playing because I kind of understood how to win against "beginners" (lol even if I played only 4 games) but I'd like to play with guys who know how to play. Where ? When ? (europe time)

    Hmm, you might be right - we tried to make the descriptions as short as possible (this is based on my experience - players tend to ignore long texts).
    But since you insist, I've changed it to:
    Better? :p
    Hmm, then you were probably just unlucky they found you :p
    Although there is no need for lvl 2 walls - if you put your towers behind the animals, Hunter have to chop their way through to them if they wish to destroy them, which should buy you enough time to deny most of the livestock. Flame-Arrow Towers have Siege damage-type, which should make them about few times better over Ice Towers for denying buildings :p
    Yep, towers are expensive, but the main thing is Hunters don't get the gold.
    The last wall upgrade (Magic Wall) can be lowered, allowing units to pass through.
    It has already been pointed to me via PM, I'm about to fix it :D
    Thanks tho!
    Great, I'm looking forward to play with you!
    How about tomorrow (friday the 6th), 18:00 (UTC+2)?
    Both me and Parafrazor have time, we play over Garena+
    Add me as a friend, I go over the nickname: Mufanza

    edit: this is also an invite for everyone else reading this, come, friend me and join us! Even if you're not that good at this map, we're all cool and friendly people :D

    You made a really nice map mate. Me and that strange sheep tested it on gamer ranger and now the whole community is playing it. Keep up the good work . Maybe you can add some different kind of farmers and hunter that would add the game more spice but all in all 10/10 points.

    One of the few maps that those not get boring after 10 times xD

    Duuuuuuuudes, you rock! So good to hear this! ♥♥♥♥♥♥!
    I've never heard of this gamer ranger but this seems like a good time to try it :D

    Different kinds of farmers/hunters. Mmmmm maybe one day, but for now, I don't want to hold the players at start (and I'm also not sure what would they differ in :D)
    Keep the suggestions coming! Anything an experienced player can say has a price of gold to us!
