Guild Arena: BattleChasers v1.11 AI

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


:fp: 25.09.2011. Yo Darkwing here, I am opening up project recruitment
for the sequel of your favorite arena map,
the new Guild Arena II: the Broken Pact.
Join our Guild Arena Team NOW!!!
Click on the image below to go to the Project Recruitment Thread.



The vast city of Utopia lies atop millennium of conflicts, congregations and betrayals, peace and wars, overladen with monuments of past carved both in stone and flesh. The Guilds within City are bound by the "game of throne" each claiming the rule over the other Guild in its own manner. Now after almost century of peace that was protected by the "Pact", the new era of struggle is slowly drawing near. Rumors circle the city from the Kaos slum-taverns, across the fire pits of Skarana, over the libraries of Zycra, through the most inner circles of Verdana glades, across deserted roads and wastes of Ahkrep up to the Aspire bell towers, that the pact is shattered. With the rivalry and tension between Guilds brewing up, slowly both Heroes of old, and young upstarts are rising up to once again chase the battles across the territories of Utopia. The only thing that remains now is that YOU chose your favorite amidst the many who have entered the battle already and ask yourself...

Which guild are you?

* The map has -ap (all pick), -ar (all random), -em (easy mode), -nd (no duel),
-na (no achievments), -3d (3d camera), -cf (Capture the Flag) modes.
* There are total of 35 Heroes/ines divided among 6 Guilds. (33 standard and 2 Fun Heroes)
* Experience new additions to the gameplay, such as animated "killing spree" text, achievments, 3D camera and much more.
* Map also contains a basic AI that I intend to improve through the gamers feedback.

I strongly recommend for all those new to the map to read the Game Info (F9) or check out the official map website www.guildarena.co.nr at for full explanation of the game, it's feats and new stuff.

Me and my testers have done the best of ourselves to remove all bugs we spotted, so if you find any bugs, syntachs errors, find explanation ability, hero etc. confusing, or if you have an idea, constructive critics, or WANT to join our team, please contact me.

:fp: Changes in version 1.1
Show new feats
Let's go over the major changes firstly :thumbs_up:

DESTROYABLE ENVIROMENT: The surprise additon
-Thanks to Mile Rizik who started modeling just recently, you can now utterly destroy whole enviroment in GA. He created and animated models for Archways, Pillars, Columns, Torches, Braziers, Skull Piles and Statues.
-However due the complex thing of creating such good Destroyable Enviroment system I've implemented the simpler system
-The new version will feat this more complex system for sure (I'm half way there making it)
For now the things you should know about the system:
-All of the Enviroment Destructables have set amount of hit points so that they cannot be destroyed early in game. Destruction starts approx between 10-15 min of the game when full scale asskicking between the Guilds begins
-Not all abilites can destroy the Enviroment (lol hels sure cannot)
-If your Hero has Army Crusher or Ground Breaker equipped he can destroy the enviroment near the target he is attacking
-Also if your Hero is near the Destructable when its dying your camera will shake as the Pillar, Statue, or Archway..etc. falls to the ground

-Now duel ranges from 1v1 to 6v6 based on the number of players in Guilds. Also the bugs of the previous duel have been removed, this duel rocks. The skill of the ones of who achieve Immortal Fame Rank will be tested in duel of type Immortal vs Guild where you fight alone against whole enemy Guild.
-Features new bet system with old commands. Fixed the bug where you could bet more gold than you have.
-Added "-finish" command which can be typed when AI's fight duel to randomly kill one of duelers and finish the duel so you don't have to wait for them to fight.

New SCOREBOARD (Multiboard)
-Features all of the major game stuff up in the MB.
-Show scores of both Guilds in the title.
-Also shows the duel countdown if duel is on
-Show the pending time of all reviving Heroes

-Added item ownership sys. Items you don't own cannot be pwned. You can still manipulate with them. This does not apply to Recipes or
Consumable artofacts such are Pots and Net.
-Added "Pick All Artifacts" ability to the Stash Box which picks all of the artifacts in your base region to your Stash Box.
-Changed the Pandora's Box into two shops "Mida, the Fame Keeper" (sells Fame Artifacts) and "Trainer" (changed Tomes into trainings of Might (Strentgh),Endurance(Agility), Knowledge (Inteligence) and Omnimind Training (level gain))
-Added new Artifact "Apprentice Ring" (Wee Tradonauts); +2 armor, +200 mana pool, +Replenish Mana (AoE mana restore)
-Added new Artifact "Avatar" (Kitty); +300 hp, +5hp regen, +24 dmg, +Avatar (spell immune for 9 sec)

-Reduced "Pipe" recipe to 625 gold
-Sacred Body is now Fame Artifact

New CTF MODE (Capture the Flag)
-Type "cf" in addition to the game mode to activate the CTF mode
-Both teams have 3 flags (one in base (5 points), one in the crossroad in front of the base (3 points), and one in exit (1 point))
-Each of the flags carries a certain number of points to your Guild when you retrieve it to your base
-The limit of the points needed to win the game can be changed with -cl ### command where ### is the number of points
-Only one flag can be carried at the time
-This is the Experimental mode so pls feedback anything you like/dislike about it
-AI does not work with this mode (They won't collect the flags)

Hero/ine stucked problems
-There are now 4 Waterfalls in the Arena (two near the wells in the moats, and two in the entrances into Dragon Vault) that throw you back in the Arena when you finish up on the walls
-The "-stuck" command has been changed from the vote command into non-vote command that turns the collison of your Hero/ine for 2.5 seconds so you can leave the place where you got stucked. After that you cannot use it for 90 seconds, so that should fix the problem of "-stuck" abuse.

    ... another bug/leak...
    in a game with some of my buds here, one of them picked the butcher (aka pudge) and we are on a fountain siege !And he was hooking for kills and... he hooked a Shop (its as the "MarketPlace"), i didnt test in every building, any tho is was funny xD,

    and the snowman spin attack u should put the warning "channel"

    Lolz I'll fix that with hooking the shops it can be rather unpleasant to have all of your shops hooked into another base :vw_wtf: :thumbs_up:
    I'm working on other of the spree and fame rank sounds, just have to find a girl with enough sexy voice :thumbs_up:
    As for the channeling spells you should accept the new game terminology as the all spell that need to be channeled are marked as "sorcery" while those instant cast are "instant", each ability has some of the info related to the targets,duration,AoE and stuff at the bottom of description to make them (spells/abilities) more user friendly, look at the picture to see what I mean. :thumbs_up:

    check out the game site for closer explanation of the game parameters and terminology (the site will be updated soon to match the current version but there is still plenty of info there)

    I'm one step in front of you hehehehe, I'm are working on the real "candy" for that stuck problems and stuff but I won't reveal anything cuz it will ruin the surprise!!! Tnx Blood for the idea, I'll try to make the unit bounce out of the some walls in game, that would be really cool!!! :thumbs_up:

    Aha, already play the 1.03, now time for comments (or critics)
    -Tested the Astronomer, like it very much. But I found something awkward with his 1st skill, Cycle. It doesn't deals damage when the target collides with other enemies, instead it deals damage to ward (sometimes, maybe). Also, the Teleport skill. I already learn the skills to level 4 (0.75 sec casting time). But when I tried, it takes about 3 sec casting time to successfully teleported to the target ground. And, I bet my life, the maximum teleport range is not 1250.
    -"PICK ME!!!" rune on duel arena doesn't too useful, thought. Or maybe it's harm! 1 side can escape with it, if the other side don't have skills with high cast range. The result is, draw. (Or the duel has no duration?)

    -Rakanis, the Sorceror. It is hard to control the Flame Cannon, since pressing the arrow keys also moved the screen. And the bugs starts here : About the Core Dweller and Fire Cannon. First, when I use Fire Cannon to fuel the Kaboom! skills. I see that the damage, AoE, and stun duration increases every time (when fueled). But when reaching 175 -> 200 damage, the damage, AoE, and stun duration refreshed to 0. Also, if Core Dweller leaves the target ground the Fire Cannon is casted (when fueled), directly the damage, AoE, and stun duration refreshed to 0 again. Does the Core Dweller need to remains on the target ground the Fire Cannon is casted? Should add duration on it. And also, the Core Dweller can't cast Kaboom!, even it's already fueled.

    And, that's all.

    About the Astronomer: yeah I've noticed that Cycle skill deal no or really small damage, but it's fixed now, in 1.1 Astronomer will also have new spell instead of teleport, won't reveal what it'll be though, he also needs some minor modifications (like his base damage, I forgot about that unintentionally) :thumbs_up:

    The Pick Me rune good point there with the draw result of it's overall usage, but the rune itself is there for fun, since among the chaos in battle you can still try to escape using it very succesfuly, or combo it with Speed or Heal rune to maximize your chances of escape, since you'll agree with me, any chance of escape is better than none. Also you can use it to gang the enemies, surprisingly being throwed at their position, maybe when they are not looking, and you get a kill or two (worked for me couple of times :thumbs_up:)

    Sorceror fire cannon is quite unique spell due to it's ability to control the jet of the Fire Cannon with arrow keys, so it's quite hard to design that spell in any other way, but my idea is following:
    When you cast the fire cannon the icon for Exceed Ability (if you've learned it) will be hidden and you will get two abilites that allow you to move the Fire Cannon to left or right.
    The synergy between the Fire Cannon and Core Dweller, known as Fueling works so that only when you stop the Sorcero's channeling of the spell Core Dweller is blowed to peaces. On the other hand if the Core Dweller is moved in any kind of way by you or the opponents the explosion will not occur, this provides a balanced option for enemies to evade the explosion and big amount of damage and stun. However this skill was designed as fun skill, but it can be used if you climb up on the Arena Wall, or channel it near the bases in the woods near the entrance to annihilate the running and unaware enemies, it takes a big amount of skill to set up an ambush with this combination, however the results are devastating.
    Also the Core Dweller will be slightly changed (I wont reveal in which manner :grin:) to make him more durable during the Fueling so you can even Fuel him in full scale battles in combination for example Necromancers "Bone Prison" or Dreamweavers ultimate Dream Leash.

    And here is some prerelease info of version 1.1:
    -The fearsome current of the waters in two waterfalls in the Arena can be used to return you back to Arena if you finish up on the walls. (I'll maybe add two more waterfalls)
    -You can expect modified Scoreboard also :thumbs_up:
    I've done much more than these two thing but also more of it remains to be done, I'll not reveal the "candy changes" in 1.1 to not to ruin you surprise (it will be definitely be positive jawdropping changes as you are all used to :ogre_datass: :thumbs_up:)

    Blood thanks once again you are indeed a true member of GA community!! :thumbs_up:

    Ah, nice to change it

    Ah, I forgot. I mean on duel arena (when duels). :)

    Ha.. I see. So now, about the bug I mentioned, nothing wrong when you play it? (the "refreshed to 0" and "can't cast Kaboom" problem)

    Wow, nice idea about the waterfalls
    will wait for the modified Scoreboard :)
    jawdropping.. hehe, so awesome, I scared :)

    Haha, I'm not much helping this time, but thanks :)

    Yo guys, hope you are getting ready for GA 1.1, it will be a real bomb release, I'm currently finalizing the new systems and stuff around map, but I don't know how long will I need to finish, I think that I'll be finishing in a 5~7 days, since now the Eastern holidays have come and I can sit down and work properly. Most of the new systems are slightly complex, so it's really hard to manage them all, but it'll be fine, it always does.
    Also the site should be updated and redone after the release for you people to have better info in the game so that a +job to the queue also.
    We'll also throw ourselves into the organization of community, and games over the internet or in lan, since the game is already being played on the Garena and Battle Net.

    As for now I'll let you know of some of the new feats:

    NEW DUEL is applied, it will not bug like the previous duel was, now there is also the different type of duel, not only 1v1 as it used to be, based on the num team players, from 1v1 to up to 6v6 duels can occur. Also the skill of thos who achieve Immortal Rank will be tested in duel since they will be thrown against on the duel against whole enemy team!!! There are also some new feats about the duel but when the release comes you will be able to see all of them in the video we are preparing. :thumbs_up:

    ARTIFACTS There will be about 8 NEW artifacts and 2 of the old artifacts are removed, as well as there are changes and fixes to the existing artifacts (new buffs, costs, recipes changed, etc...), since the game was crying for new artifacts. Also the Pandora's box will now be replaced with training center that will have two shops, one for trainings (to increase the stats) and one which will sell the fame artifacts.

    CREEPS are now categorized according to their Guild and will feature a new spawning system, along with some new thingie about them. Their abilities will be balanced/redone accordingly, and you can also read the experience that these creeps will give in the Game Info (F9), and you will be able to read about it on the site as well.

    DRAGON VAULT in addition to the thing that Black Dragon will now be empowered with few spell and abilities the gold he drops will be categorized and you can expect some special artifacts to drop from him as well!!! :thumbs_up:

    There are numerous other changes/additions in the game, about Heroes, Achievments, enviroment, gameplay well you will see them. OOOOH yes almost forgot

    The new jawdropping thing I was talking about that will be applied in 1.1 is...well I won't tell you since it will ruin you surprise, however I'll give you a small hint...from now one there will be a LOOOOOT MORE SMASHING around in the Guild Arena. :mwahaha:

    :thumbs_up: All in all there is a load of work to be done, but once you see the Ga 1.1 and the stuff around it you will understand why it took so long to make it :thumbs_up:

    Now better for me to get back to work, hehehehe :grin:

    May 15, 2008
    Tnx guys for the congratulations, I've updated the map once more cuz I forgot to make the Terrorist "TNT Barrel" destroy enviroment. :eekani:
    Glad you like the kill streak, It's not so hard to make it once you have an idea, just do the system based on it. :thumbs_up:

    To all community memebers:

    I'll start organizing online games over the Garena server, we'll start from this weekend, maybe friday, maybe we could all meet up on the Europe RPG rooms, just say which one, I prefer the 5/6/7??
    The GA team will be also playing, although not all of us will be able (I'm not sure for Sasukic and El Carretero is in Russia).
    We can play it around 23, 00h in the evening my GMT is +1, just post here or on the facebook who wants to play, or you can add me as buddy on Garena my account is "Darkwing_" (without " "). :thumbs_up:

    hehe :)
    Darkwing you made rook like 'demigod' rook right?
    IDEA = add a new skill for him, i arrow shower (phoenix fire like) to be a 'arrow tower attch'
    ty :)

    May 15, 2008
    HAHAHHA yeah the basic idea I got from there, I've also thought of making towers on his shoulder like the Demigods Rook, but I'm not sure how would it look like, but now that Mile Rizik is modeling maybe he can brew up something we'll see!! His Towers that are erected have phoenix fire based multiple attack ond the higher lvls :thumbs_up:
    Also the Vixena is based out of the Demigods Torch Bearer, just her story is different and she is the Torch Bearess :ogre_hurrhurr:

    Already played the 1.1 version, like all the new feats. I think the most creative feats was the waterfall. Ah and also I test the new hero, Leonida. Entertaining :). Also his ultimate (Heroic Leap), you can add more bonus effects like 'automatically activate the "Warcry" ability when Leonida slams the ground', could be more creative.

    Will see the artifacts next time, I busy now :)
    Oh there is one odd thing in his skill, don't worry, just a typo, the 'Hypocryte Rush' (forgot the name) skill or 'Javelin Throw' skill. It must be 'if Outnumbered' not 'if Overpowered'.

    -2nd testing-

    Woah the model of Wondo's Moment Aura was very awesome :)
    And the artifacts, nice work there. The Apprentice Ring was very useful. But maybe if it's not hard, can you tell the players the utility of an item's ability? If you can, then, you're kind :)
    Also the new ability of the Terrorist, you revive him from life, man! That's what we call Terrorist!

    More updates and more perfect!
    Hope GA : BattleChasers will be famous soon :)
    And see, this make my days more perfect.

    Ok VTZ I've asked Mile Rizik about the tower, and he says that it's a piece of cake so you can expect Rook with new ability already from the next version.

    Glad you like the new Terrorist, he is indeed more terrorizing now, thanks Blood for your suggestion in the first place!!! :ogre_hurrhurr:
    How do you like the destroyable enviroment?? It'll be far more better once i finish the full DE system :thumbs_up:
    For the artifacts did you mean of the utility in game or on the map description of the new feats?

    As for the others I apogize for not succeding to make all the changes in the 1.1 which I promised (the creeps still need to be categorized and to make the new spawn system, a few more items needs to be put in the game, Black Dragon needs to be empowered with abilities, etc.), it is indeed hard to trigger and program all those thing by myself. :vw_death:

    You can expect the next version of the GA to be more of a Hero edition since I plan of adding a large number of new Heroes to make the gameplay more interesting but due the repair of the systems I just couldn't separate the time to make more than Leonida. Also expect the announced improvements of the Hero abilities in the next version, and the Vampire will finaly be fixed, the bug with armor and dmg with his Portrait Curse ability is the Blizzard bug, so I'll just trigger the same.

    Also the Guildmasters of the Utopias Guild's will be joining the battle in their own manner, so it will be more exciting from now on!!!


    The Ga team will be playing tomorrow Friday 6. may. 2011. starting from 00h (our GMT is +1) we'll be on Garena server in Europe RPG Room 7, if sufficient number of players shows up we can separate into Guilds and organize the tournament!!! :thumbs_up: Post here or on the facebook fan page (GA:the BattleChasers), so maybe we can organize the Guild in advance!!! :thumbs_up:

    SEE YA :goblin_yeah:

    -So it's not in full system? Don't ask me, I'm having fun destroying all kinds of crap!
    -Of course the utility in the game! That can made people understand the use of an item without buying it

    See you soon!

    Hey all, this map is amazing, custom spells are inventive and their nice for a change. I like a creator who makes things simple, yet elegant. Many Hero choices and not too many custom models, interactive and well thought out spells and enviornment. I also like how you direct it to teamwork throughout the beginning and the duels. Also more complex item system than most, it really brings out the pro-fighter in all who play this game.

    So far the only bug I found is with the arena. The fights are good and they work out well, it involves strategy more than just skill spams. But as the Blood Knight, his ultimate vengance skill can be useful. When I was in a 2v2 duel round Me and one computer were left. Blood Knight vs Alchemist(btw awsome name for alchemist XD) and he beat me but before he could win Vengance killed him and the game got frozen.:goblin_jawdrop:
