Heroes of War


About the Map
About the Map
The map is, as said, an AoS map. That means every player will control one hero and make this hero more powerful while the game is running. You will kill enemies to increase your heros level. Gain new abilities and make your current abilities stronger and better. You'll buy items for your hero to increase the power of the hero. All players are divided into two teams, The Corrupted and The Outcasts, each team will contain five players. In order for a team to win, the team will have to destroy the enemie teams main building, but it will take some battle to get to it. The main building is protected by strong guard towers and enemie units are almost always defending it.

This is much of the basic things I think everyone knows.

The Story behind Heroes of War

Read the Story

Heroes of War - Story

It has now been 179 years since Arthas was defeated by the great nations combined, but the world was not yet in peace, the war still raged on causing endless misery and chaos.
With the Lich King defeated, the nations once again began to fight each other. Years past and the wars only got worse, as a result the nations summoned massive gods of destruction, trying to get an edge in the war; but only more chaos was born with those summoned gods.

There were a total of eight gods summoned, fighting each other, tearing the world into bits and pieces. However, after a while the gods got tired of the endlessly raging war and the destruction it caused; so they turned against their own masters and broke free from their command.

With the world almost destroyed, the gods defeated their former masters and the remaining nations were ought to restore the badly damaged world.
Only two nations (The Corrupted, The Outcasts) survived the rage of the gods and yet again started to reestablished new cities and armies. Even with the world torn apart, the nations could not forget their past wars and the dispute continued deep inside an old. Now fighting for their very survival or until they fall into the Gods rage.

The Corrupted is an army of terrifying creatures living deep inside forgotten forests and swamps. They grew stronger and stronger while the world was trying to defeat the Lich King. When the world turned into absolute chaos after Arthas death they saw their opportunity to seize power and ran over all enemies they came across with their army of corruption. They are also the ones responsible for the summoning of the God of Immortality, that later pushed them back, forcing them to flee to the very deepths they came from.

The Outcasts is an army of Bloodelfs and demons, they are very self-centered, driven by the will of getting stronger by enhanced magical powers and massive constructions. They didn’t really care about the war but they knew they were going to be affected by it sometime and made a decision to enter the war, testing their magical powers and combat skills on enemies. They are the ones responsible for summoning the God of Vortex that like the other Gods also pushed their masters back to where they came from destroying them utterly with overwhelming power.
New heroes will rise, new kins will be discovered, deadly creatures to be faced and old kings will be on the top of determination in the epic battle to survive in the new god controlled world.


Now about the features of this map. I'll make a list of all the features:

* Current Features
Read about: Current Features
* 54 unique heroes

The map will, probably, at its release, contain atleast 54 unique heroes. Each hero will have atleast one triggered spell, ofcourse there are heroes with more triggered spells. All heroes will hopefully be as much balanced as possible.

Each hero will have four (4) abilities and one (1) Attribute Bonus ability.
Three (3) of those abilities are basic abilities with a maximum upgradeable level of five (5).
One (1) of those abilities is the Ultimate ability with a maximum upgradeable level of three (3).

* 5 Game Modes

At the beginning of the game, the host will currently be able to select one of five game modes:
Allpick (-AP), Allrandom (-AR), Randompick (-RP), Random Tavern (-RT), The Chosen Heroes (-CH)

Allpick (-AP)

When the host selects this Game Mode, all players will be able to choose any hero they want to play with.

Repick Enabled: True

Allrandom (-AR)

When the host selects this Game Mode, all players will get one random hero each, they will not be able to select any hero


Repick Enabled: True

Random Pick (-RP)

When the host selects this Game Mode, all players will get a list of three heroes. The three heroes at the list are randomized. In

order to select a hero the player will have to type either -Pick 1, -Pick 2, -Pick 3 in the game-chat.

Repick Enabled: False

Random Tavern (-RT)

When the host selects this Game Mode, all taverns except one tavern will be deleted from the map. This order players to just

select heroes from one random tavern instead of all five. Otherwise this Game Mode is like the Allpick Game Mode.

Repick Enabled: False

The Chosen Heroes (-CH)

When the host selects this Game Mode, all players will pick a hero in turn. Player one (1) begin picking a hero, then it's player

sixs (6) turn to select a hero and then player two (2), and it will continue until everyone got a hero.

The special thing about this Game Mode is that each player will have four heroes randomized for themselves at the beginning

of the game. Noone will know which hero that will be able for a player.

Repick Enabled: False

This is how it looks when the host shall select a Game Mode for the game:
Game Mode Selection Picture


* A duel area(s)

The map will contain two duel areas, every x second, one random player from each team will be picked and will have to

kill its opponent. Both dueling heroes will start with full HP & MP and with no cooldowns.
The winner of the duel will be teleported back to its previous location and the defeated player will have to wait for a respawn.
The winner will also earn 200 extra gold, while the winners team will earn 100 gold.

(The battlefield will be paused until the duel or the duel-timer ends)

* Different unit types at lanes

Every x second, units will be created both for The Corrupted and The Outcasts at all lanes (varies with the

game mode). The units will not be the same all the time, it varies between two wave groups.
As an extra feature: Every x second a stronger unit will be created to aid the team in battle.
Crazy Furbolg for The Corrupted
Rejected Angel for The Outcasts

* Special tower abilties

Every team will have towers, defending the main base from enemie attacks. Players are able to aid those towers with three

special abilities in a special building called: Forbidden Secrets. Those three abilities are:

Seal of the Forbidden

Max out your allies towers attack speed over 5 seconds.

Cooldown: 300 seconds.

Seal of the Unbreakable

Max out your allies towers armor over 5 seconds.

Cooldown: 300 seconds.

Seal of the Immortal

Heal all your allies towers by 300HP over 5 seconds.

Cooldown: 300 seconds.

* Two outside mini-bosses

Outside the battlefield you can find two mini-bosses with a special loot, that you only can get from those mini-bosses.
The first mini-boss is:

A Water Elemental with a lot of HP and very strong frost attack. Sometimes it may succeed to stun you.
It's recommended to kill this mini-boss togheter.


A very powerful creature. Its HP is a lot more than a hero ever could achieve and its attacks are very powerful. Its abilities is

You should kill this mini-boss togheter, everyone...

* A simple multiboard

I've created a simple multiboard, that will show every player:

* Current Game-Time (Top-Left)
* Time until the next duel (Top-Right)
* Players are sorted into two categories (team based)
* Respawn timer (if the players hero is dead)
* Hero icon
* Players name & the player heros name
* Player heros current level
* Kills/Deaths
* Total Kills/Deaths of the team (Patch 1.3.0a)

Multiboard Pictures



* Upgradeable Units

You are able to upgrade your teams units. You can increase their attack damage or armor for the cost of 500 gold.

This upgrade can be bought at the Forbidden Secrets building.

(Every 8th minute the units attack damage will be increased for free)

* Eyecandy terrain

The terrain is made by me, it may not be the best, but I like it and I think it's well made. Improvements may come.

You can see pictures below.

* Coming Features
Read about: Coming Features

* Quest system

A quest system will be created, allow players to do some on-topic quests to earn some rewards while playing.

Info to be added.

* A Survival game mode

This is a kinda unique idea for a map like this I think. We thought, why do maps like this always have to be about killing

That's why we're going to add this game mode:

SURVIVAL GAME MODE (Damn the Gods (DtG))

The survival game mode is a survival contest between the teams. It's about that every team will have to defend its own main

building from waves of attacks. It will be five waves every round before a boss will appear with powerful abilities, doing

everything to destroy the main buildings.

This is what we've planned at the moment. We've allready written about all the bosses, stats, abilites and such. The only thing

that's left is creating them.

Info to be added.

* Other Coming Features

* More heroes
* More items

* Not 100% sure

* (mini camps)
* (more advanced Hero-Selection system)
* (more game modes (except the Survival Game Mode))

Info to be added.


More screenshots will be added in the future.

    Here's a riddle for ya : "What looks like DotA, sounds like DotA, and acts like DotA ?...

    ~ On a more serious note, if I saw one I've seen'em all ... But I'm downloading this and testing it... who knows...

    Edit :
    ~ I tested it and stick firmly to my claim. How can you be such a downright hypocrite to not call this a DotA copy ?! Okay, let me put it in a different way.

    *Things you've done :

    - Introduced new items
    - Renamed various items
    - Increased / Decreased item costs
    - Introduced new heroes
    - Re-skinned most ( if not all ) heroes
    - Added a few models (units and buildings alike)
    - Changed creep skins / models
    - Added more types of creeps per wave
    - Tweaked certain abilities
    - Increased the maximum level ability of a skill by 1 (from 4 to 5)
    - Created or tweaked certain spells, skills
    - Added more diversity to the terrain ( in height, slopes and cliffs )
    - Etc. Etc. Etc.

    * But, even with these changes, everyone that will test the map will have to agree with me on one thing : This is DotA... not just a different AoS, it's DotA with less heroes, more items, different mobs and so forth... On the other hand : DotA is the step-child of it's true father - Tides of Blood, and if you're familiar with this map, then you'll understand why I can't just over-look the obvious traits before me. With this said it's approval-worthy and I shall vote and rate it.

    - Rating : 3/5
    - Voting for : Approval!

    Your riddle makes no sense to be honest. Nowadays, everyone is screaming that all new AoS maps is like DotA even without testing them...

    But yeah, test the map and leave a feedback of what you think :)

    I must admit the whole map seems like a ,better-made, version of DotA. (I don't mean you copied Icefrog's map, just that you made one like it)

    .Also there is at least one typo in your descriptions: ...when you kill an enemie... . In English it is ...when you kill an enemy... .

    Despite all that, the whole game seems nicely made and could inspire others to either make better maps, or improve their already existing ones.

    In short I rate it with a 3/5,Useful

    Hello, thanks for your feedback, it is mostly welcome but let me remind you that this is still a BETA version and many things can be changed until we realese the full version. It is true that many things are like Dota but i would like to say that many things also are NOT like Dota. You didn't even mention the duell area we have in this map, thats a kinda big thing in my opinion and i think ppl can like it.

    Things that Dota do not have that we have:

    -Unique lane mobs in both team - Crazy Furborg and Rejected Angel
    -Two different kind of wave mobs (could be fun with some variation)
    -The duell area
    -None of our heroes are like any of Dotas
    -More tower abilities than Dota
    -Players can upgrade the wave mobs with attack power and armor
    -And about the items, there are a couple of items that are like Dotas i agree but there are also alot of items that is nothing like Dotas if you just look around. :)

    We ARE gonna add more stuff into this map to do it more unique compared to other AoS maps so just wait until we have balanced all the heroes.

    Thanks again for your feedback i hope more ppl want to do the same :)

    Make the heroes that aren't available yet to be "out of stock", cause it single player, people can enter...the cheat code...and train ANY hero that isn't out yet. :p

    Aug 16, 2007
    Thanks for the feedback, I'll take a look at this typo :) +rep

    Haha, didn't knew that, but that doesn't really matter. If someone want to play as a boring imbalanced hero, let the person do that. :)

    Really cool map, its not a DotA copy, definitely no a DotA copy, and also nice job with the heroes abilitys and skins, just the mobs from The Corrupted, or something, are a little stronger than the ones in the other team, without the upgrades(which are a nice addition)

    I give a 4/5 because its kinda easy to win in the corrupted side, also because its a beta version i wont say anything bout the lack of game modes and heroes, if you need any help with the heroes i can help

    Hello, thanks for your feedback, i needed to hear that. :)
    But you said that the corrupted are stronger than the other team, can you please say why you think so?

    Man...u listed all thing which makes it different from Dota, if u think like this every aos map is dota....about items....u say they ar reworked, why the hell do you think about dota IF AN ITEM GIVES 5 STRENGTH INSTEAD OF 4 like in ur precious dota, skills...if someone curses you and u loose hp, then its dota hero skill cuz "there is a shit hero which does apply a curse which makes u loose hp" or what?! Ah, I can't stand people who think about dota if they play any aos

    Please do not quote me if you are not the author of the map. I did everything I could to make it clear that my post was addressed towards the creator of the map himself. By your status ("DotA hater") I can tell you automatically assumed I prefer DotA to any other map and that I am thus a "DotArd" ... what you are lacking is constructive criticism and most of all respect.
    When the author will update his map, I'll gave it a real review and not just a -sketch- like I did in my first post. Have a nice day.

    dude your maps cool it though it gives me a feeling of dota it have a nice variety of heroes but about some items are like in dota what you should do used custom icons for items..what i like most in these map are heroes skill, spells and gameplay..
  13. lolreported


    Aug 16, 2007
    Thanks for the feedback! Yeah, it sounds like a good idea to add some custom icons to some of the items, I'll see what I can do.

    New version: A new version is uploaded, read the changelog if you want to know about the changes and/or updates! :)

    Wasn't the first AoS Aeon of Strife? I mean isn't that why it's called AoS. Also the war between dota lovers and dota haters is a very distinct line. Don't say AoSes are like DOTA say they are like Aeon of Strife. DOTA (im my opinion) is a overspamed map on B-net tht takes up 75%+ space on the map list. I hate it for that fact, granted i think i played it once, and found it's balence questionable.
    Just my two cents. ALso the terrain from your WE over-view looks sick and well made.
  15. lolreported


    Aug 16, 2007
    Yes I think it was and I think it is. I've never played Aeon of Strife but I think it is the "mother" of all "AoS" maps, also the mother of DotA. Well, everyone has different opinions about DotA and there will always be like that. I hope some peoples will play this map instead of DotA or start playing this map even if they never has played DotA before :)

    Anyway, thanks for the terrain feedback, I hope you'll test the map and give us some feedback from in-game! :)

    DotA is the child of DotA RoC which was around before ToB existed. which in turn is the child of AoS. ToB is only related to DotA in the sense that it is an AoS.

    From the way your post is written, it sounds as if you assume that almost any AoS is a DotA rip-off unless things are radically different.

    correct, aos was the mother of all. Dota are just another son of aos.
