Gold Rush v1.1

Submitted by Sverkerman
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.

- $200 winner of WC3 Vidya's Map Jam.
Gold Rush came to be as a compeditor in the WC3 Vidya's Map Jam by Sverkerman and Hagge5. The aim of the map is total crazyness and fun as goblins roam the plains looking to claim gold for their machine of ultimate destruction - to conqour the plains for themselves. However, they've got company as their visit hasn't come unoticed. Humans will do whatever it takes to bring the greenskins to fullfill their diabolical goal.

Gold Rush is an tag-styled game, but FFA rather than team-based. Despite this, a player will find himself in one of two roles: human (a chaser) or a goblin (a runner), switching between them over the course of a game. A goblin must amass 400 gold to claim victory for himself, gained from digging out gold veins and mines. While they individually work towards their gold, the humans will attempt to slay them. Should one succeed, the human player and the goblin player switches roles, and the gold of the goblin player is dropped. A win condition can only be reached in the goblin role.
Both sides of the fray have a number of dynamic abilities that needs to be used optimally in order to win. Quick reaction times are rewarded. An advanced player may even be inclined to help another goblin towards their doom, to claim their riches as he falls.

The map features stunning terrain, impressive custom abilities, unique buildings, and a heck of a lot of fun.

Don't be intimidated by the fact that the map can be played with up to 12 players; our innovative auto-balancing system will shut off areas of the map, and keep the human/goblin ratio constant to provide an ample experience for any number of players. We do, however, recommend at least 4 players to join the fray. A (skipable) tutorial will also make sure that new players feel comfortable without forcing them to read a wall of text.

-Coded in Wurst.
-Contains over 8000 doodads.

    The game's speculation and game play is superb! The skill set is easy to use, gold mining doesn't need to click just like in Diablo III where you just move in the gold's location to collect it, and the buildings even have awesome gimmicks to try.

    The terrain is wonderful! especially when played in high definition, the map's layout is designed in a way it is based on a mountain side forest, which is neat to see.

    Overall this map is a must with players and friends to try out, this map is rated as Recommended.

    Map looks fun. But the map description:

    "The map features stunning terrain, impressive custom abilities..."

    That's false advertisement right there since you're telling us how awesome and kewl your map is without allowing us to experience it ourselves

    Idk what are you smoking, but can I have some?
    The terrain is horrible. The abilities and mechanics look fun from the video, but they are NOT impressive.

    I will try this out, but I suggest you change your description. My personal opinion

    Also nice druid with a big joint picture on your steam group.

    Wow! This map is fun plus this map's size is very small! A very excellent map here!

    The game-play is unique and nice for me. The graphics is praiseworthy plus the map is still maintained in a small size! Cool and awesome!

    @The Panda Thanks!
    This was made by me and Hagge5, I recently updated the text in it because I am showcasing this and Dualism as "previous projects I've worked on" while recruiting for my new project.
