Custom hero survival

hoihoi8s Custom Hero Survival v1.21 (Map)

08:54, 3rd Feb 2009 MasterHaosis: Approved. I like your huge map description. Huge to read, but useful. Map is nice and fun, lot of Hero skills, more balanced than in previous version. Good job.
  1. cibus


    Jan 24, 2013
    This map is fun even if its community is sort of stale minded. Derp anyone who doesn't pick barrage/cleave is a noob. How is a person a noob for picking builds that are harder to win with? Well that's pub logic I suppose no point in arguing.

    I think tomes should all cost the same 175 for all of them. If your worried about agility being op having attack speed/armor/damage set the attack speed agility gives to .5 per point of agility instead of a full 1% attack speed. Difference being 800 agility will be max attack speed instead of 400. Attack speed is about 20 lumber away and armor isn't all that powerful. I've seen 6 arthas armor carrying heroes die before.

    Boss Drops: Switch it to the arena boss who drops items. I'm sick of some clown running around with 6 stars or 4 killmains or grabbing 2 tent whips. Seriously what's the point of the final boss dropping items? Or worse yet bosses are killed right on top of shops and nobody gets items.

    Change their drops:
    Instead of star giving 25% true shot giving straight 25% damage back to melee attackers (no thorns aura). If done right stacks with thorns and spike armor... Although a build doesn't have to go those.

    Mageswrath: Roughly same numbers as Killmain but instead of lifesteal how about an aura that decreases spell resistance. Spell like builds seem to taper off greatly at about this stage of the game. This item will give more appeal and hopefully speed up the rate they're able to kill creeps.

    Demonic Whip: Tent whip colored red, instead of plain lifesteal how about an active lifesteal like dota's satanic. I don't know I'd like to be able to run a feed back + poison build every once in a while but it's damn hard with all these life steal items being dropped and no mana bosses... Sell a 3000 gold item for 1500 pff no thanks.

    Crazy ideas: Turn a couple of skills into global effects
    Trueshot Aura: Be nice if your a melee with range summons also free's up a skill slot if they can survive.
    Melee Aura: Same reason as true shot also speeds up the rate others are killing creeps.
    Endurance Aura: Starting to see a pattern here?
    Unholy Aura: Auras are to be shared
    Vampiric Aura: More auras please!
    Battle Roar: Buffing allies helping them kill units faster encourages team work rather than d-bag team killer.
    Tranquility: Helping an ally survive go team work...

    Free's up skill slots if they survive and allows one to pick lesser used skills. Encourages team work rather then some A-hole killing his/her allies because they're too slow. The number one complaint unconventional builds get is they're killing too slow

    I doubt anyone will read this wall of text but I figure I'd put these ideas out there any ways

    Also dude, did you know that there's backstabbers in the game as well? When a player hero attacks another hero until their dead after 1 ankh is gone? ggs

    Did you also know that when a player changes their difficulity (affects HP), that someone goes and gets bash skill and stun you until death? (ggs). Better watch your back some games, cuz they will do that.

    Current version right now on Battle.net East/West is by hosting bots: v2.08

    P.S. There's a faster way of killing lvl 40 boss without the bash skill. do you know what that is, huh dude?

    Hey man, how soon are you gonna make some changes to Custom Hero Survival?
    What should ya give the hosting bots proper versions of this?
    Alot of changes & heros need to be made? same with bugs/glitches and tricks?

    This map is easy to survive in SOLO PLAYER :ogre_hurrhurr:
  5. player 2

    player 2

    Sep 6, 2012
    Ummm, are you referring to playing offline or online as in solo player for this map?

    1. Cuz if your playing offline, then it depends on which difficulity your setting it too. Also, which hero skill building (by lumber), and what hero your using? Do NOT think this map is easy to play on. Unless you'd be using cheats & play single player mode than that's being a newb or so nooby lol.

    2. If your playing online with other users, then in the 1st point, depends on 3main things: (hero), (hero skill building), and (difficulty). Dude, how dare you think this map is easy? you also should know by now that theres a lot of fake CHS version maps out there. No clue which one is being used atm.
  6. cibus


    Jan 24, 2013
    Its pretty much the same online or offline... The only difference is offline you don't have back stabbers and vote kickers to worry about. Pretty much the freedom to do whatever the hell you want without the retard dps builds on your ass for taking too long to clear a round.

    Although for a challenge try defeating the game with 10 different builds. By different builds I don't mean running the same 3-4 skills (aka berserk, dps aura, cleave/barrage) in all 10 of them. Bonus points if you can do all 10 of them in hell mode.
  7. player 2

    Sep 6, 2012
    Ok. true. playing this or any wc3 map offline or online is the same concept.
    2. True. there's no back stabbing or vote kickers to worry bout. But your forgetting that even playing online still, there's back stabbers and votekickers as well. LOL bonus points.
    3. The only reason why they take so long to clear rounds is cuz a lot of ppl don't know how to skill build well with their heroes. Only very few actually RANDOM their skills with their heroes & not make it far past Round 20 (if lucky idiots).
    4. Your right about 1 point tho. Beating the map with 10 different skill builds and not the same skills would be a great challenge (even on hell difficulty mode). But you'd be only proving yourself solo mode (not battle.net users).
    5. Online playing is a different story cuz how often do you ever see a map like THIS being hosted online? and how often will you see ppl join & wait for a map like this to start? NONE. cuz for your information, UCW and ENT host bots will not host it. TO host a map such as this, gotta hella host it YOURSELF.
  8. cibus


    Jan 24, 2013
    I don't know when I host this using ents private hosting it fills super fast. Although they're also connected to garena and probably a couple of other platforms so that kind of helps. I do run into a lot of smart asses who make themselves grow super big and 1 shot everyone (they're obviously using cheat pack hacks) and of course team killers. But hey that's the risk of playing chs I don't even think there's a map around now or days that isn't hacked in some form or another.

    My golden rule of thumb if you only have time for one game play to win. If you have time to play more then one game play them for fun. Unless its dota in which case they're all play to win and curse the effin crap out of your noob wit allies :ogre_rage: :ogre_love::grin:
  9. player 2

    player 2

    Sep 6, 2012
    Hmmm, well maybe you have better luck playing this during the day or night in timezones, cuz the way I see it is, pplz will join for whatever map they like to play. Some will play chs, some wont. For garena users, it depends on their timezones as well. Cheating and team killing shouldn't be allowed in the 1st place. TO play a map like this "CHS" is about strategy, skill building, and teamwork. As far as growing big is concerned, it's quite simple really? it's a avatar trick. I been using it too. it's not hard, just gotta be smart about it. Even at times, when skill building, the 7th skill never works and your stuck with 6 skills only. Nowadays, gotta be careful when playing with teammates, never know who's hacking, team-killing, or just bored & leave game. This also includes noobs, newbs, or being pro & then backstabs.

    The bottom-line is, this map needs a lot of fixing bugs/glitches/hero changes/items/etc; & needs to be hosted more, if pplz are interested in play this, dude. I suggest to noobs/newbs practicing this map offline, b4 coming online and playing this with real pros (who know what to do in this situation of custom hero survival map).
