Icecrown DotA AI v1.5
Created by Pyro

Map Info:

Icecrown-DotA is my own modification of the DotA template from SD_Ryoko and AceHart.
It includes the 24 melee heroes of Wc3 (most of them modded) and 6 custom heroes I designed myself. The Level cap is in contrast to DotA Allstars on 30; means every hero has 3 5-level normal abilities and a 3-level ultimate. The map also includes lots of custom items and
a region where random Boss-Creeps are spawned. I spent the most time on the map when I created the AI that includes Assassination, Item Buy, Teleporting and many other aspects.

Due this is the first map I am publishing on Hive, I hope that you all will be patient for things i did wrong and help me to discover my mistakes and improve my map.

I'll be pleased if all interested players will have Fun with Icecrown-DotA :D


  • Working AI
  • Custom Passive Buffs for Heroes
  • Custom Boss Fights
  • 24 Custom Designed melee Heroes
  • 6 Completely New Custom Heroes
  • Many Triggered and Variable-Damage Spells
  • 57 New Custom Items
  • Unique list of Commands, such as Camera Zoom Factor, Locking Camera on Hero etc.

Some else stuff about map:

The AI is still weaker then the DotA Allstars AI and secures a very good start for people who are completely new to DotA-like Games.

Comment: Leaf Storm doesn't have a hotkey
Leaf Storm's learning tooltip says it deals 0 damage.
The spell icons aren't positioned right, the ulti is at the second spell slot for Cenarius?
Also the spells cannot get any more boring or non-unique. 3 of Cenarius's spells are just default ones, I mean really, if you're going to make a special AOS, then at least make some interesting and unique spells.
And seriously? Gaia's Blessing creates grass in the hero's body?!

Overall the terrain is even more lacking than DotA's, completely random doodads everywhere, especially those ice blocks at the entrance of the undead base, almost no details, etc.
The gameplay is not unique, it doesn't feature anything new, it's almost the exact same thing as DotA, just some other random items along with worse hero concepts and a functioning AI, but really, DotA also has one.
Oh and in-game credits are missing. (or at least I didn't see them in the credits quest)

Also you might as well just remove the loading screen and preview images, they're of way too low quality.
This needs a lot more work.
