    After been given positive feedback on the new version, I think it is ready to be released to the public to gather further feedback.
    Myself, I think it is around 10 times better than before, but I am the creator so that might not hold a lot of weight.

    Attached you can find the new version! Or you can also doenload it here:

    http://www.sendspace.com/file/szoycw

    (Don´t mind the random heroes at the start, just test the gameplay with a friend)

    Got rid of the spell book, so using hero abilities is much faster now. All in all, the hero system was reworked, and also you can choose an speciality at lvl 3 hero now.
    Also the hero selection has been improved, and the goal is much simpler: destroy the enemy sanctuary.

    It´s just gotten better, plz give it a try:

    The goal of the game is to destroy the opponents sanctuary.
    GXP is like a normal resource, like gold in WC3.

    It is not that strange -more like easy- if you actually read it and try to understand it.
    I am not blaming anyone, since I it is also hard for me to read huge descriptions of other maps.

    It´s been a while, but after coming back to it a month ago, it looks like the mod will see the light and be released soon. smile.gif
    Discs very rarely happen, and it seems to be just me discing. Just have to add some heroes and test it a bit for flagrant imbalances and then it is ready to go!

    GXP rate has been adjusted, hero leveling rate has been adjusted, pretty much every unit has seen its stats/skills changed in some way. Right now I am happy to say that the mod is completely playable and fun. AND challenging.

    Lastest version:
    http://www.epicwar.com/maps/27847/

    Replay/demo of it in action:
    http://www.wcreplays.com/pub_replays.php?get=49744

    Have fun, and don´t miss it!

    Nice map, with a lot of thought put into it, but there are some things I didn't like:
    - Loading time is slow, which isn't good because games end fast.
    - A lot of features that can only be explored by a lot of playing and there should be a lot of balancing to do.
    - New players adapt slowly if they haven't read your "map guide".
    - Ingame heavy armor ( summon's armor ) says that it takes extra damage from magic
    - The Competent Creatures upgrade shouldn't affect wisps, because they'll instantly get convert which is realy annoying, as even if you go to kill the wisp he'll detonate, without giving exp.

    Thank you much for giving it some time.

    -I am afraid loading times will stay slow, but games between evenly matched players can be 20-30 mins no problem from my experience.
    -I am testing with a couple of friends and fine tuning balance as much possible. As you can imagine, it´s impossible to get everything right in such a game.
    -Completely true, this map for sure takes some time to learn...perhaps I should a turorial? Or that would just delay (even more) the actual start of games.
    -I´ll look into that, but know that summons are taking 100% from all attacks.
    -Interesting bit on balance...I can´t tell right now how good that upgrade is since we haven´t researched it once in our games! Perhaps GXP is coming in a little slower than it should, but it seems like we are always kinda short on GXP. We tend to stay with lvl 1 fountains, since upgrading it for 150 GXP and then having it stolen within 30 secs is quite a blow. Then again we are just scrapping the surface the game IMO.

    If you like it enough and are interested in helping me playtest it, plz post info so I can reach you somehow or just send me a private message. Or just meet me on northrend, the nick I am using is "CoilmeRubi".
    Again, thanks a lot.
