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


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.

Features

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

* Current Features

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).



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)


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

Repick Enabled: True



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

themselves.

Repick Enabled: True



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



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



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:

100427HoW-Pic2.jpg




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)



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
and
Rejected Angel for The Outcasts



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:


BTNVorpalBlades.png

Max out your allies towers attack speed over 5 seconds.

Cooldown: 300 seconds.



BTNAdvancedUnholyArmor.png

Max out your allies towers armor over 5 seconds.

Cooldown: 300 seconds.



BTNImbuedMasonry.png

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

Cooldown: 300 seconds.



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:

BTNSummonWaterElemental.png

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.



BTNNagaMyrmidon.png

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

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



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)



100427HoW-Multiboard1.jpg


100427HoW-Multiboard2.jpg




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)



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


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

Info to be added.



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

eachother?
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.



* More heroes
* More items



* (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.

@Titania,
It isn't we've already tested this skill in-game and that within that test we didn't notice that it was overpowered.

@random.guy27,
Now do I like the icon, I will have to accept it's from WoW in this case, because it may be hard to find any else icon that will fit.

Edit 1: I've changed the Infected Vomit's icon and I'll see if I'll do any changes to Unknown Liquid.
Edit 2: Zombie Master's Raise the Dead skill has been updated here.

Hi, i like the remake u did for time king, im not going to take all the abilitys you made but probably 3 of them.

I also liked your ultimate ability for the forsaken but im not gonna change the name on the hero.
And im gonna do some changes with the death coil ability.

Thanks for your ideas.

Ok. But, for Time King (or Eternal King for me), why not take all of his abilities?

And for the Forsaken, why not change his title and name?
Is Forsaken Demon too much? and Varimathras too Warcraft 3-ish?
There are TONS of other names...
Terrordar, Nerothos, Bleakill, Necros, Fearoth, Dethecus, Maldibion, Nochthitus, Balnazzar, Rashgarroth, Aramachus, Zilfallon, Lorthiras, Zenedar, Mullioch, Algammon, Banehallow, Ven'Gyr.

About Time King, i didnt't like your ability Sphere of Age so much and i rather want a more fun ability.
If you want you could give me some suggestions on that last ability.
And i may rebalance his ultimate a little, it seemed a little too powerful, but we'll see.

This patch may also be delayed abit since something about Zombie Master (we think it was him) fucked up our map and we had to continue our work from a slightly older version.

Zombie Master seems to be working fine now and the map progress is moving forward again!

Edit 1: Changed some things regarding the Zombie Master's Raise the Dead.
Edit 2: Drunken_Rider and I have just tested the current updates of Patch 2.5.0a and it worked flawless, just with some minor things we found out that will be fixed. Other than that, it's only two heroes left now when The Zombie Master and The Living Dead is 100% working!
Edit 3: Changed some things regarding the Zombie Master's Zombie Disease and Infected Vomit.

Ok.
I always thought the skill you're saying is "Sphere of Ages" I had a hunch.
Anyway. It's role is actually to be his defensive mechanism.
Every Carry needs at least one defensive mechanism, and that's a fact.

And for Chronofield. I just lowered the -MS% (60% => 30/35/40%)
It isn't that overpowered.
Remember that it only lasts for 4 seconds.

One question.
Will you change his name and title to "Aetas, the Eternal King"?
Please say yes.:ogre_haosis:

The map progress is actually pretty fast now. I'm currently working with The Forsaken and this hero seems to be a "not-hard" work and will be finished faster than the Zombie Master that took very long time to get working.

Edit (2010-10-14): After some trouble again, the progress is moving forward. Wave of Terror is done and next up is Death Barrage for the Forsaken!
Edit (2010-10-15): Made som changes to Death Barrage, it will now have a 0.1 mini-stun while each death missile hits the unit.
Edit (2010-10-17): Drunken_Rider is currently doing changes to ALL our items. Unknown how much time this will take, but I think it's worth it!
Edit (2010-10-21): Drunken_Rider has done changes to all items and the progress on the heroes is moving on.
Edit (2010-10-22): The Forsaken is almost done, just some few things left. Then it's the last hero left, the Time King (don't know if this name will be changed) and hopefully he won't be hardfixed. Other than that, I think it's time for the new patch after this!
Edit (2010-10-23) 1: The Forsaken is done, we delayed the Aerial Assault because we had no room for it in the "spellbar" (bottom,right). We'll see if we'll do anything about it in later version but this ability won't be forgotten. Next up is Time King (don't know if this name will be changed).
Edit (2010-10-23) 2: We've tested the map 2vs2 and everything worked nice, just some balance changes we'll have to do.
Edit (2010-10-27) 1: Sorry for the slow progress, I've got some schoolwork to do, but it's almost finished, just one thing left and then I'll complete the Eternal King.
Edit (2010-10-27) 2: Schoolwork done for now! It's time for some mapping. Also, I've re-installed my Warcraft 3, hopefully this will disable all those weird in-game glitches that have haunted HoW...
Edit (2010-10-27) 3: Uhm... The glitches are still there... Different edits within the map causes it to act weird sometimes, as we've said before, and this glitch is still active. Currently I'm saving the map every 2nd minute it feels like, + the backup file. I change one thing, save the map and then test it. This is starting to annoy me extremely much...
EDIT (2010-10-27) 4: Okey, the version is pretty much stable now I think. It's ony the Eternal King left, everything else is done. I'll talk to Drunken_Rider and see if we'll skip him in this patch and release the patch as it is now and do Eternal King in the next patch. This is because I don't know how much time it will take to find the glitch...
EDIT (2010-10-28): Due some issues, we've decided that Eternal King is delayed to the next patch. So patch 2.5.0a will only contain three new heroes and some fixes. Sorry for this, but we need more time to work with this glitch and we don't wan't to delay any further with this patch. Also, The Forsakens ultimate ability (Transmutation) will be changed into a new one. This is the last thing to do before the release.
EDIT (2010-10-29): The patch is finally done! I hope it's stable at this moment and if not, updates will be made ASAP. Help us search for the bad thing! :D I'll release the patch in a few minutes.


Patch 2.5.0a

Good to know that 2.5.0a patch is done.
I'm actually waiting for it to be finished before I post my other suggestions.

Aetas is delayed right?
And his "Sphere of Ages" will be remade right?
I'm on it...

I'll try it right now.

EDITED.
icon.gif

Mervixines, the Forsaken

• Death Barrage
- How long will the debuff last on the enemy unit? Are there any?
- What is the total amount of release per level? It is not stated.
- When will it stop releasing, besides when the max. amount is release? For example. an enemy is too far away for you to be able to release Death Coils.

- A certain balancing of this skill. It is currently overpowered, well IMHO, since you didn't put the maximum amount of releases per level... And actually the fact that it deals 51 damage at level one. You won't say that it the maximum release is 2 or 3 at that level.


button.php
Got the Icon here. It's from Wowwiki

Death Barrage

[Insert Hero name here] targets an enemy unit and afflict it with a dark energy. When [Insert Hero name here] is near the affected unit, he is able to send out death coils that hits and damages affected unit every 0.5 second. Each Death Coil ministuns the enemy for 0.1 second. Releasing of "Death Coils" will stop if the enemy is at least 800 units away from [Insert Hero name here].

Level 1 - Each Death Coil deals 16 damage. Maximum of 6 releases
Level 2 - Each Death Coil deals 22 damage. Maximum of 7 releases
Level 3 - Each Death Coil deals 28 damage. Maximum of 8 releases
Level 4 - Each Death Coil deals 34 damage. Maximum of 9 releases
Level 5 - Each Death Coil deals 40 damage. Maximum of 10 releases

In Depth Explanation
• Damage type: Magical
• Area of Effect/Finding AoE is 425
• Casting Range is 375
• Death Coils can't be evaded by moving of blinking
• Death Coils can only hit units you have vision over.
• Maximum damage is 96/154/224/306/400


Cooldown: 16 sec
Mana Cost: 85/100/115/130/145

• Wave of Terror - A certain tweaking of this skill, and name & description change won't hurt.
icons_11107_btn.jpg


Tides of Darkness

[Insert hero name here] lets loose a wave of dreadful energy that terrorizes enemy units in a line. All affected units will have their armors lowered and movement speed reduced by 10%.

Level 1 - Reduce their armor by 2. Last for 8 seconds
Level 2 - Reduce their armor by 3. Last for 9 seconds
Level 3 - Reduce their armor by 4. Last for 10 seconds
Level 4 - Reduce their armor by 5. Last for 11 seconds
Level 5 - Reduce their armor by 6. Last for 12 seconds

In Depth Explanation
• Casting Range is 1200
• Area of Effect is 300
• The wave gives vision as it goes forward.
• The wave could travel a maximum of 1200 units


Cooldown: 15 sec
Mana Cost: 80

- Besides those things, increase the travel time/speed of the spell. It is currently too slow, and is easily avoidable.
- For it's animation, there is something missing. It's is not that terrifying yet. Sorry if I can't suggest anything with this


• Pulse of the Forsaken
- It's fine. I just need to know its Area of Effect, its "Finding/Sensing" AoE and some Description changes.

icons_3334_pas.jpg


Pulse of the Forsaken

[Insert Hero name here] can hear the heartbeat every Hero he faces. The less health the hero has, the faster its heartbeat will be. When a when an enemy Hero's HP is in critical level, [Insert Hero name here] is able to sense the its location and gains additional movement speed.

Level 1 - Grants vision of the any enemy hero with less than 20% HP left. He able to sense enemy heroes within x AoE
Level 2 - Grants vision of the any enemy hero with less than 25% HP left. He able to sense enemy heroes within x AoE
Level 3 - Grants vision of the any enemy hero with less than 30% HP left. He able to sense enemy heroes within x AoE
Level 4 - Grants vision of the any enemy hero with less than 35% HP left. He able to sense enemy heroes within x AoE
Level 5 - Grants vision of the any enemy hero with less than 40% HP left. He able to sense enemy heroes within x AoE

• Life Sap
- I actually don't see why you change my suggested skill for this. Anyway, it is your map. Might I just ask why did you change it?

icon.gif
"Mana Burn" Remake V.1
icons_12481_btn.jpg
Got the icon here

Nightmare Rift

The Dark Spirit opens a rift at a targeted point that sends out dark energies that forcibly pulls one random enemy hero within sight. Casting Range increase per level

Level 1 - Pull a random enemy within 400 AoE
Level 2 - Pull a random enemy within 550 AoE
Level 3 - Pull a random enemy within 700 AoE
Level 4 - Pull a random enemy within 850 AoE
Level 5 - Pull a random enemy within 1000 AoE

In Depth Explanation
• Casting Range is 400/450/500/550/600
• Its effect has some travel time, the target isn't instantly moved back.
• Interrupts channeling spells
• Only pulls enemy heroes within sight. Invisible Heroes, Heroes in the fog, etc... will not be chosen by this skill


Cooldown: 18 sec
Mana Cost: 80/90/100/110/120

Why change his skill?
Do I have to say it?
• Mana Burn is an out-of-place skill. It doesn't offer any synergy with his skill set and his role.
• While with this skill, it offers tons of synergy not only to his skills, but also to with teammates.

Hi, yes Eternal King will be delayed til next patch.

we are gonna do some small changes and balancing to mervixines aswell and why we didnt take your ultimate ability is that we had huge problems with his attack animation, stand animation in his gargoyle form and death problems and it was a big mess, we could'nt figure out what was wrong so we created a new ultimate for him, hope you like it :)

would like some feedback on Unparso (our zombie) aswell plz :)

Thanks!

I'll let Drunken_Rider answer your about your suggestions and such, but I can answer some of them.

Yes, Aetas is delayed, because we met some issues and didn't want to delay the patch any further, he will be made in the next patch.

About the Death Barrage, I made it like this: When Mervixines casts the spell on an enemy unit, the maximum number of releases is starting to tick down, even if the unit isn't in range. So every 0.5 seconds the amount of releases ticking down. Get it? So there isn't exactly any debuff. And there is a maximum releases per level, I think I wrote it in the description?

About Life Sap, we removed his other ultimate (the gargoyle), just as Drunken_Rider said, it become a mess, things didn't went as we wanted it to be... This ultimate isn't forgotten and we may implent it later on, but it's a bit delayed for now.

Hi, yes Eternal King will be delayed til next patch.

we are gonna do some small changes and balancing to mervixines aswell and why we didnt take your ultimate ability is that we had huge problems with his attack animation, stand animation in his gargoyle form and death problems and it was a big mess, we could'nt figure out what was wrong so we created a new ultimate for him, hope you like it :)

would like some feedback on Unparso (our zombie) aswell plz :)

Thanks!

Ok.
And sure. I'll try to give some feedback regarding Unparso.

EDITED.
I forgot to tell you that I'm currently working on a new Regeneration item.
Actually, I've already said this before but during that time, it was VERY unoriginal and unfinished.
Here it is. It is more original than the previous one I posted, but it is still unfinished, well, that is for me.

HERO INFORMATION

Gluttony, the Cannibal

Starting Hitpoints: 620 [120 + (Starting STR * 20)]
Starting Mana: 195 [Starting INT * 15]
Starting Damage: ??? (It's up to you)
Starting Armor: ??? (It's up to you)

HERO SKILLS

skill-0.gif


Devour

Swallows a non-hero enemy unit whole, instantly killing it one the spot. Every time he devours a unit, his STR will increase for a short period of time. Last for 15 seconds.

Level 1 - Increase his STR by 3. Could only devour creeps up to level 2
Level 2 - Increase his STR by 6. Could only devour creeps up to level 3
Level 3 - Increase his STR by 9. Could only devour creeps up to level 4
Level 4 - Increase his STR by 12. Could only devour creeps up to level 5
Level 5 - Increase his STR by 15. Could only devour creeps up to level 6

In Depth Explanation
• Gives Gluttony the original bounty of the creep
• Goes through magic immunity.
• You cannot devour ancient, mechanical or flying units.

• Simple, but don't underestimate it. One click could give you, insta-gold from the creep you killed and extra STR. Extra STR meaning more HP (15 STR gives you 300 bonus HP!), more damage, and more HP regen (like you don't have enough...)


Cooldown: 30 sec
Mana Cost: 85/80/75/70/65

skill-3.gif


Hell's Feast

Gorge down on an enemy, dealing immense damage while healing a portion of your health based on your max HP. Has a ministun.

Level 1 - Deals 90 Damage. Heal 10% of your max HP
Level 2 - Deals 180 Damage. Heal 10% of your max HP
Level 3 - Deals 270 Damage. Heal 12% of your max HP
Level 4 - Deals 360 Damage. Heal 12% of your max HP
Level 5 - Deals 450 Damage. Heal 15% of your max HP

In Depth Explanation
• Damage type: Magical
• Casting Range is 150
• Ministun lasts for 0.1 second


Cooldown: 14 sec
Mana Cost: 110/120/130/140/150

What?! 450 damage and heal for just 150 Mana with a 14 second cooldown! IMBA!
Oh please.
Might I just remind you that he has a Starting INT of 14 and a poor INT gain of 1.3.
Plus it's casting range is practically melee! Just 150.

skill-2.gif


Thick Flesh

Gluttony's fat and thick body provides him resistance against magic and spells, and also increases his HP regeneration.

Level 1 - Increases magic resistance by 4%. Regenerates 0.4% of max health each second
Level 2 - Increases movement speed by 8%. Regenerates 0.5% of max health each second
Level 3 - Increases movement speed by 12%. Regenerates 0.6% of max health each second
Level 4 - Increases movement speed by 16%. Regenerates 0.7% of max health each second
Level 5 - Increases movement speed by 20%. Regenerates 0.8% of max health each second

In Depth Explanation
• Spell resistance stacks with that from items.

What?! Just 0.08%?! LAME!
Let me do the Math your all of you.
If for example, Gluttony has 2000 Max HP.

2000 * 0.008 = 16
Meaning, +16 HP regen per second!

And expect that Gluttony will have more HP and with his additional Magical Resistance, he could be unkillable.

skill-3.jpg


Hunger Breakdown

Gluttony is always hungry. With his hunger turned into rage, he slams the ground, dealing damage based on his STR and stunning all nearby enemy units for a short moment. Due to the impact, Gluttony will receive half of the damage done.

Level 1 - Deals 3x of Gluttony's STR. Stun last for 2.25 seconds
Level 2 - Deals 3.5x of Gluttony's STR. Stun last for 2.75 seconds
Level 3 - Deals 4x of Gluttony's STR. Stun last for 3.25 seconds

In Depth Explanation
• Damage type: Magical (Both to Gluttony and to your enemies)
• Area of Effect is 375
• Gluttony could use this skill to deny himself

• It is almost the same as his former "Ground Slam" but I did some rework and balancing.


Cooldown: 80 sec
Mana Cost: 175

And some Visual Change for Items: (Icon & Name)

Silencer
- "Dark" may not be the proper word to describe the item. That's why I changed it's name to "Silencer" and gave it an appropriate icon.

random.guy27, I'd like to rename Dark to Silencer, but it's Drunken_Rider that decide if it will be changed. I'll tell him to take a look at your suggestions.


Patch 2.6.0a

This patch didn't have that much changes, but a new hero is something nice anyway! Finally, all pre-made heroes are done, now... I don't really know what to do, keep balancing the map and add new things I think. Hm, those game modes have to be done too. Keep give us feedback please! :)

Hello there zadelim! :)

It's going fine, we are done with all pre-beta made heroes now. The Eternal King (the last one) was finished yesterday and was released with the new patch 2.6.0a.

Now, we just want to find as much bugs and such as possible to make the map more stable than it is. Also, trying to release a few more game modes and such. New heroes will be released with the time, we already have some new planned I think! :)




Patch 2.7.0a
Patch 2.7.0a is under development. This patch will hopefully contain some new game modes. Minor changes will also be made, some hero ability changes and more.

Edit (10-11-2010) 1: The development is moving forward without problems this far! The new patch will probably be released soon.
Edit (10-11-2010) 2: Patch 2.7.0a is released! Some fixes and new abilities to three heroes has been made. Also the All Random game mode has been unlocked!

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.

So you find a map's balance questionable for your first time playing the map? Its somewhat obvious that your two cents sound like you played the map for 1 time, got your ass handed with a negative score, your team lost and you ragequitted too. Nice two cents bro

It is hard to balance an AoS map, much harder than ppl think, ive noticed since i began work with this map :p

Hello. :ogre_haosis:
It's been a while, hasn't it?
Just here to remind about my Mana Burn remake, and also don't forget about my other suggested remakes. :grin:

icon.gif
"Mana Burn" Remake V.2
icons_12481_btn.jpg
Got the icon here

Nightmare Rift

The Dark Spirit opens a rift at a targeted point that sends out dark energies that forcibly pulls one random enemy hero within sight. Casting Range increase per level

Level 1 - Pull a random enemy within 400 AoE
Level 2 - Pull a random enemy within 500 AoE
Level 3 - Pull a random enemy within 600 AoE
Level 4 - Pull a random enemy within 700 AoE
Level 5 - Pull a random enemy within 800 AoE

In Depth Explanation
• Casting Range is 350/425/500/575/650
• Its effect has some travel time, the target isn't instantly moved back.
• Interrupts channeling spells
• Only pulls enemy heroes within sight. Invisible Heroes, Heroes in the fog, etc... will not be chosen by this skill


Cooldown: 18 sec
Mana Cost: 85/95/105/115/125

Why change his skill?
Do I have to say it?
• Mana Burn is an out-of-place skill. It doesn't offer any synergy with his skill set and his role.
• While with this skill, it offers tons of synergy not only to his skills, but also to his teammates.
Plus. I still can't see this part of his rework.
I don't know if it's implemented or not because the description still remained unchanged, and the visual effect of it still looks like it deals damage at a constant 500 AoE.


Dark Spirit
> Totem of Nightfall will now have an increasing AoE over time. Area of Effect start at 275, then expands by 75 per second (275>350>425>500)

Hello there random.guy27 :) Yes, it's been a while and I can tell you that we haven't forgot your suggestions. We just have to make some other things before we add new heroes at this moment.

Also, Totem of Nightfall is fixed with expandable AoE, I'll change the effect when I've got time and improve the description.

> Hopefully fixed the multiboard issue when a player leaves.
> Leaving player will no longer have it's name changed to "Left...". Their name will just be colored with a gray color.
> The kick system is removed (because there are other programs that can do the same nowadays).
> The tavern (Heroes of the Ancient War) that has less heroes than the others are now disabled in the [Random Tavern] game modes, due to the lack of heroes.
> Re-made the core of the forbidden secrets (made it more efficient).
> The cost of upgrading a teams' lane units attackdamage has changed from 500 gold to 850 gold.

Oh... It's not supposed to be as that. We've forgot to change it to intelligence. Will be fixed in the next patch. Thanks.

Edit: Mage of Regret is already an intelligence hero? You must have played an old version.




Patch 3.0.0a

Patch 3.0.0a is under development. A new hero will be added, the Arcane Disciple, created by random.guy27, thanks to him. Also a lot of balance fixes has been made and other important stuff.

The progress of this patch is going fast forward. We've done a lot today! The new patch will probably be released tomorrow (2010-11-28). :)

^ Oh great!
But kindly give me a heads up on the changes and balances you will do to him.
I was thinking of changing his "Energy Chains" because it is already present in the skill set of "Mage of Regret"

And also, for Eternal King.
Change his 3rd skills name to "Sphere of Ages";
and make its Stun Duration scale to 1/1.25/1.5/1.75/2 seconds;
And give it a model, a target-able model, where you could click and attack it since currently, even if you see it, you won't have any other counter but avoiding it, which isn't that much of a counter.

Hi, i really liked the arcane disciple so i only did very minor changes on him like some cooldown and stat changes. :)

if you are replacing his "Energy Chains" what kind of ability do u have in mind?
i guess a support ability?

Download it now!!

Heroes of War - Launcher
What? A Heroes of War - Launcher? Yes, I've actually made one. It's a simple program you start up and then you'll be able to read the latest changelog and download the latest version from there. It's also a "quick-button" to launch your Warcraft III. I don't know yet if I'll release this. It still have to be updated a little.

I am already play this map and of course I will post my opinion here.
Okay. This map is interesting. Terrain is nice, skills description is nice, etc. But I think the heroes' skills is too simple. See, I play Murloc of the Damned. 4 of his skills is simple. Just damaging, block damage, invisible and deals bonus damage when attacking, and heal allies. And not balanced.
Then, Unholy Warrior. His first skill - Unholy Taunt. What is the difference with Taunt? You just add "Unholy" on the skill's name! Add more effects if you want to name the skill's name "Unholy Taunt". And his third skills, Unholy Fire. What is the difference with Immolation? Again, add more effects, related to "Unholy". And, his fourth skill. The description, he just raise his sword and he called three infernals? Change it! Change to something like "channeling unholy magic" or others.
The Dying Bug. His first skill, Pile of Food. The description says it must attack the food to regain health. But, the Dying Bug attack is ranged-attack. Odd I think. Attack from the distance to regain health.:vw_wtf:
And, the Soldier of Narz or Soilder of Narz? Change the name if it is false. His first skill. Nice idea for the effect, but the description is odd. Praying for the god? (my opinion) And his second skill. NOT BALANCE! First learn the cooldown is 240 second? Dota's King Leoric fourth skill is 300 second for first learn. And only need level 6, 11, and 16!
Ah, enough of my bad opinion. This map has good potential. And keep in mind this is BETA version, of course there is deficiency.
Give you 3/5 GJ and keep up the good work! :ogre_hurrhurr:

Hi :), thanks for the feedback, we could need even more tho :D

anyway, its good that you like the map and i could tell you a little of those heroes you have looked at.

Murloc of the damned is actually not a hero ive worked much on, thats the reason for his simple abilities and the reason to why he is a bit unbalanced also.
About the Unholy warrior, we are gonna add some nice effects cuz you have a point there.
Why the Dying Bug is ranged is because i tought it would be better for him to have a easy way to heal himself rather quick instead of running back and foward to his Pile of Food all the time as melee because for his ultimate that takes damage on him constantly, so its all about giving him a nice gameplay.
About the Narjz hero, its a little bit as the murloc, ive not worked so much with him yet and has a few balance issues but im coming to him eventually.

It was good to get some feedback, would be rly awesome if i could get some more :)
Thanks!

o_O So all of the deficiency is because it is BETA? But I understand, making map is very hard.:wink:
And, I have little advice for the items. Can you add the shop's name on the right of the ingredient items that used to buy recipe items? (Besides Recipe 1,2,3,4,5 Shop) I mean (ex):
-----------------------------------------
|Speedzor |
|*Description* |
|Need: |
|1xBoots of Speed (Random Stuffs) |
|1xGloves of Haste (Random Stuffs) |
|Etc. |
------------------------------------------
And then, I re-try a few heroes.
The Cannibal. His third skill, better healing a portion of his hitpoints equal to the target's max hitpoints, rather than equal to his max hitpoints.
The First Born. His third skill. I think you should change the graphic effect (Do you understand?). And his fourth skill. When I try it, I can't see explosion within the swamp. Only the disease cloud. Is this because of my computer errors or what?
That's all, and I thank you for your reply.
Hope the next version will be better! :ogre_hurrhurr:

I read that 63% of the spells were triggered. Is this just trigger enchanted or fully triggered? There is a quite difference between those two. I guess you are JASSing or GUIing :D

Anyway nice map! I'll subscribe with this.

Well, 63% of the spells has something to do with some triggers. The rest is just custom, normal Warcraft III spells.

Yes, I am using both JASS and GUI, but nowadays I'm trying to use as much JASS as possible ^^

@-BLOOD_BATH-,
Thanks for the feedback! I'll let Drunken_Rider answer you :)

I re-try a few heroes.
The Cannibal. His third skill, better healing a portion of his hitpoints equal to the target's max hitpoints, rather than equal to his max hitpoints.
The First Born. His third skill. I think you should change the graphic effect (Do you understand?). And his fourth skill. When I try it, I can't see explosion within the swamp. Only the disease cloud. Is this because of my computer errors or what?
That's all, and I thank you for your reply.
Hope the next version will be better! :ogre_hurrhurr:

Hi again, its good that you tested First Born cuz his ullti got bugged in some way thats why you didnt see the explosions : /. anyway, The_Flood will fix it in the next patch.
And about the recipe and item idea you have, we have actually tought about the same thing but we want to fix all the big stuff first
Thanks for the new feedback + rep

Don't know I got +rep but thank you! :ogre_haosis:
Well, if can, I will test more heroes, gonna tell you if there is a mistake/something.
*Hmmm... I want to tell you something that maybe not important for you, but I see in your description there is a typo that have already told by WaremDarkSlayer. Enemie should changed to enemy. :)

Might I suggest some skill rebalancing and reworking.

icon.gif
Aetas, the Eternal King
skill-1.gif


Time Vault

Make its "pointer" (or whatever it's called) the one for single-targeted spells, and not the one for AoE spells.
The reason is, it is more used as a "Blink" than an AoE Stun, and it is hard to know where you'll be teleporting since you'll first need to locate the center of the AoE circle.

icons_12042_pas.jpg


Blades of Time

Just give it a proper effect when it "locks the target in time" because I don't know if its effect activated or not.
BTNNeutralManaShield.png


Sphere of Age

With Aetas' deep knowledge of space and time, he is able to create a sphere filled with unstable time magic that is able to distort the fabrics of time. Once an enemy hero Hero steps near it, it releases its unstable energy, stunning all nearby enemy Heroes and slowing them for 2 seconds afterwards. The sphere last for 30 seconds.

Level 1 - Stun last for 1 second. 10% Slow.
Level 2 - Stun last for 1.25 second. 15% Slow.
Level 3 - Stun last for 1.5 second. 20% Slow.
Level 4 - Stun last for 1.75 second. 25% Slow.
Level 5 - Stun last for 2 second. 30% Slow.

In Depth Explanation
• Casting Range is 350
• Activation AoE is 225; Stun/Slow AoE is 300
• Orb has Magic Immunity and Spell Resistance.


Cooldown: 50/45/40/35/30 sec
Mana Cost: 50

Shal, the Arcane Disciple

Prismatic Cloak

Just some clarifications.

• Is the absorbed damaged felt? because the absorbed damage should not be felt, therefore effectively reducing the incoming damage.

• Is the portion of damage converted to mana, meaning it heals the "Cloaked" Hero's mana by a portion of the incoming damage?

Hi, i agree with the blink ability, i'll tell The_Flood to fix that

We will add slow to Sphere of Age but it will still only stun one target per orb

Blades of Time is not that hard to see? The unit that is hit by it freezes

And i'll tell The_Flood to take a look at that mana cloak aswell

Thanks for the suggestions

Hi there! Long time no see. I'm on rainy vacation. :)
Now, back to the topic. I'm just re-try 2 heroes :
-Ceromsk, the Death Dragon. His first skill, I think the ghost should be blackened+ethereal rather than blackened only. And the graphic effect, if the graphic effect is "Slow"(something yellow), it is not fit with the heroes and the skill. Then his second or third skill, I forget, Ghost of Death. I think you must change the name. If the name is Ghost of Death, then why there is "ghost" too on the description of first skill. Is the ghost is different?
-Zerton, the Plague Revenant. His first skill, I think it will be good if the initial damage is decreased and the dps and the duration is increased. If the skill's effect is "300 initial damage and 20 dps for 2 seconds"(On last level), of course, the dps is not important, I mean, it's not too affect the skill. Change it like "35/70/105/140/175 initial damage and 15/20/25/30/35 dps for 4 second", since it affects area. And I think it is bugged. You will think so if you cast it on the line of creeps. There are 1-2 creeps that takes no damage. And his second skill, better change the graphic effect (Disease Cloud) I suggest, if not it's same with the First Born ultimate's graphic effect. Then, the third skill. I think you should change it to stack systems (Like DotA's Batrider first skill). If not, it will be boring, since his 1st, 2nd, and 3rd skill's cooldown is long. And his ultimate skill. I suggest you should change the icon.
Now, the gameplay/whatever :
-GRRRAHH, the creeps, it is really annoying. When I attack the Outcasts' Wizard, then the Bloodfiend attack me. Is the Bloodfiend assume that the Wizard is a hero? And the really annoying Siege Machine. If I come near it, it attacks me. Does it set to automatic attacks hero? Better automatic attacks tower, since it's attack is Siege type.
-Now, last, the game mode. It is troublesome me, who want to check all the heroes. Can you give modes that make Single Player's player can choose all the heroes to test it? And then to make the heroes to last level, then players that want to test the game is not in trouble?
Ah, enough, my fingers is stiff. Hope you reply my posts! :ogre_hurrhurr:

Hi -BLOOD_BATH-.

Regarding your comment about my Hero, the Plague Revenant...
• Defiled Tempest AKA 1st Skill.
- It's main role isn't actually an AoE DoT(Damage over time) spell w/ a 15 second CD. My suggestion was for it to be a spammable (11 second CD) AoE nuke w/ a small DoT in the side. But Flood and drunken_rider insisted on making its CD to be 15 seconds, making it not that spammable anymore.
• Deceased Grounds
- Just visual change... Flood and drunken_rider will be the judge of that.
• Rotting Flesh
- I also thought of that idea but still having second thoughts for it.
- Actually, my suggested idea was for it to only last for 6 seconds while having a 14 second CD.
• Plague of Lost Souls
- This was once called "Plague of Locusts." That would explain the current icon.
- I don't know why they changed it to Lost Souls. "Swarm of Locusts" is one of the Plagues that God brought down to Egypt, therefore making it Theme-wise for the Plague Revenant. I always forget to ask about that.

Hi guys :)

Just to let you know -BLOOD_BATH- that im not gonna change effects on the Death Dragons abilitys right now, maybe in the future.

I will do some balance changes to Zerton that you both may like, gonna try balance him to have less cooldowns on abilitys but with lesser CD means to nerf the abilitys a little to evade overpowered spells.

The only reason i changed the name and effect on Zertons Ultimate was because Izkulim the King Guard have the same Ultimate so i tought this could be a good way to make them a little different from each other :)
PLease tell me if this annoys you much and i could change it back.

Anyway, this patch gonna include alot of new abilitys to a couple of heroes and also alot of balance fixes so its kinda much to do :)

Thanks for feedback
