FORSAKEN V1.11
Created by wa666r

[​IMG]
MAP INFORMATION:

Another Alternate melee in my series of maps involving lore races from the Warcraft universe. This addition allows the players to explore and play as the tormented Forsaken.

The Forsaken are a faction of the dead minions of Arthas' and the Lich King who have broken free of their mind control, then begun to serve the Banshee Queen, who gathered the stranded and feral undead, and gave them purpose: to seek revenge against Arthas. The Forsaken took control of the Plaguelands, and even established the capital building's catacombs into a thriving civilization. In order to ensure the survival and the continuity of her people, Lady Sylvanas made an uneasy alliance with the Horde. With dark magics, undying might, and alchemy, the Forsaken are a terrifying foe to face as they fight to their last remains; stopping at nothing to get their revenge.

If it concerns anyone, this Forsaken is post Wrath of the Lich King; after Arthas' death. So the Horde are looking into Sylvanas' plague and the Val'kyr are working hard to spawn more undead soldiers.

FEATURES:

Play as a new race, and behold the tactics and abilities to utilize their various strategies to bring the fight to the enemy.

- 4 Custom Heroes: Scourge, Deathstalker, Black Hunter, Exterminator.

- a list of new items reflecting the Forsaken race.

- Full range of units each being unique and tactically diverse.


[​IMG]
ADDITIONAL NOTES:

TO PLAY AS THE FORSAKEN, CHOOSE PLAY AS THE UNDEAD WHEN CHOOSING A RACE.

[​IMG]
BASE DEFENSE/FUNCTION: Though the Forsaken are mainly composed out of undead troops, it's only fitting that the same blight system works for them, just as the Undead Scourge. All buildings aside from the main one must be build upon blight, and all spread the blight further. However, when player units are on blight they regenerate hit points faster than their scourge counterparts. Some may even fully heal in a few seconds.

When it comes to the defense of the base; there are a few tactics that i have implemented. First of, the lumber-harvesting Phantoms are capable enough to take on small forces in the beginning of the game. And, as they are required to obtain lumber, the player will have their support. These harvesters also provide far less experience for the enemy when killed, making them viable scouting units that can harvest trees across maps while keeping an eye on the surrounding area. Another tactics that is used for defense is the main building's "Pale Lady's Gaze" ability, which creates a hovering mighty banshee above the main building, attacking nearby enemy units with high area damage. This defense is very effective and can not be easily countered; it works well to buy time to create a counter-force. However the cooldown is significant enough that the enemy can simply wait until she disappears."

[​IMG]
MASTERY RESEARCH: The Forsaken come along with a special mechanic where a new structure - Black Garden - is a capable of researching a mastery upgrade that changes the way the factions is played in a significant by changing the functionality of the Black Garden and providing specific units with additional bonuses.

Once Tier three is reached the player may choose one out of three mastery upgrades that provides extremely powerful upgrades to specific units. Only one may be chosen per game so choose wisely and see which one will best counter the enemy.

    Yeah, sorry. Guess things are as slow around here as they are for me. :<

    Speaking of which, yeaaaaah. I do. Too much of it. I am seriously busy, but I also seriously procrastinate & perfection-ate.

    Right now it's Heart of Storms -> Hero Contest -> Wc2 Tavern -> Trolls. Hopefully nothing else jumps up.

    Yea I know what you mean. I procrastinate way too much. And a semi-perfectionist I guess. That's why I constantly update my factions; I always find some fault in them.

    I really wish we could somehow mod wc3 to look like heroes of the storm/Starcraft 2.

    Hey, I am terribly sorry for no moderation; I've recently become the new trial map moderator so you are in luck. There aren't any active mods besides me, 2 are extremely inactive and one is innactive. You are the second to last on the list that I have not assessed, so yes it's your turn. Hopefully the map moderator trio return soon :(


    EDIT: Map approved with this review below!

    [​IMG] CRITIQUE
    Gameplay:
    Surprisingly the gameplay of the map based off of the forsaken race isn't just a mash of units with abilities taken straight from other races. From what I could tell, they balance the other races for the most part. The techtree is very well executed and organized. As stated in the description, the race as a whole has it's own play style, don't worry downloaders, it does not replicate undead. The base defense style is only semi similar to the undead's. There are fun and creative abilities (especially for casters) to go around, as well as well chosen custom models and skins.

    I had very little problems with this map, but of course there are a few. It's great choice that you made gorgons not attack ground units, but the cooldown for 25 seconds stun is extremely short. Sure, it costs 75 mana and it isn't a high health unit also compensates for it, but it still isn't enough considering the low gold cost and how it's 3 food. I could get a squad of 6, that means an easy possibility of shutting down 12 enemy units. That's only losing 18 food so I can have many other units kill off not stunned units easily. One other problem was with descriptions. This one is minor, but it would be nice to add to the tooltip if gorgons and skeleton riders were air units.

    I just can't think of anything that the race is missing that all other races have. All units have clear weaknesses and clear advantages in different situations. All unit roles are fulfilled.

    26/30
    Terrain & Aesthetics:
    It's blizzard terrain, what can I say? Blizzard terrain isn't great as many say, it's rather mediocre at parts but it sets the standard with spread out environmental doodads, a few structural/landmark like doodad placements, and nice height leveling. Other aesthetics in the map are in the models and skins, they're great.

    15/20


    [​IMG] VERDICT
    The only way a map can be approved is if it follows the map submission rules that apply to the map type.
    - All rules are followed, map approved!
    [​IMG] NOTES
    So far this is the best single race altered melee I've played, you did a fantastic job with the race. Feel free to contact me about this review on this map page OR message me about anything. (+2) reputation points for taking your time to upload this map to Hive.

    Yea, there's around 60 maps that are backed up in the pending menu. That's a lot of reviewing. Good luck.
