Hyperion Last War V1,3

Map Info

Choose one of the 13 custom heroes and more than 60 custom items to defeat the other team and help a crazy and bloody lord to dominate the world.

Hyperion Last War is a Hero Defense map based on the Hero Line Wars - Lition map from NightTiger_HLW.
This is an upgarde for people that loves Hero Line Wars Lition but found the map repetitive, the heroes useless,
the items quite useless too and the gameplay not really optimized.
I really changes a lot of stuff on the map, you can see the list below.

I made a lot of changes:
- The heroes are now completly custom with some eye candy and useful spells.
- Items are changed consumables ones are changed and a stack system has been added when you buy it.
- Permanent items are changed too, they are items that can be upgraded very easily by purchasing a recipe.
- The terrain has been changed too.
- The buildings is upgraded automaticly after 12 in-game minutes and 22 in-game minutes. So the items will be different after that.
- There is some modes -em, -hm, -ne, -nb, -ar, -ds, -hs, and commands -view, -random, -repick, -agi, -str, -int, (see the Modes and Commands section below)
- I added some events: the battles (see the Events section below)

    One of those maps where you send creeps down your opponents lane and try to outlast them.
    Mechanically solid, I found the hero skill-sets to be a good mix of flair and function.
    Only comment is that balance wise, the game seems to heavily favour strategies that pool money to rush big creatures ASAP.
    (Not inherently a bad thing)

    A lot of work has been put into the visuals of hero abilities, the Lich in aprticular has some awesome looking ones.
    If I were to criticize the visuals in any way, the utility buildings (such as the spellbringer/creep hiring station) arent very obvious.
    Theyre abit too far to the edge of the screen (from the perspective of someone focusing on their hero in lane anyway.)
    Terrain visuals are a little barebones, though its not ugly by any stretch.

    Nothing much else to say here.
    Its Hero Line Wars, it works, it plays fine.

    My current rating:
    3/10 (Terrain looks not so interesting and it's not very pretty. The landscape and the ground are more or less ok.)
    Gameplay: 3/10 (The time until the next wave is too long. The creeps are way too strong, it's not possible to defeat any one of them. I also don't really understand when the game exactly is lost. The creeps just gather together on the left borders after the actual wave killed me one times. Also the items are way too expensive at any point of the game. I also noticed some bugs: The Ring of Agility and the Potion of Haste don't work. In conclusion i must say that there is no real gameplay at this point. It just doesn't really work.)
    Units, Spells, Items: 6/10 (The spell that i saw was pretty interesting and seem to work. But unfortunately it didn't deal enough damage to kill the creeps in the beginning successfully. The hero i played was way too weak but had some nice spells. It was a bit disappointing that two of the items i got didn't work at all. But the icons looked pretty fitting.)
    At the current state the map gets a rating of 4/10 from me.
