v0.88b Beta

The continuity of time has been broken. For unknown reasons, the Infinite Dragonflight manipulated the events of history, and created an alternative reality. With Nozdormu, the Timeless still missing, and the Bronze Dragonflight locked in battle with the corruptors, Azeroth’s fate is once again in the hand of the mortal races. If the Burning Legion breaks through the desperate defense lines of the Last Alliance, not only the present is lost, but the past and the future might cease to exist as well. It’s up to you, brave champions to decide the outcome of the final battle. Choose your side and boldly hold the lines against the tide of darkness, or wreak havoc among your enemies…

Invasion in Duskwood is a 5v5 AoS map, that uses the same terrain structure that our famous DotA does. However, gameplay-wise it really differs; it has shorter cooldowns, acceptible mana-sustain - spells are much more important in general. It also has some other cool features; you should read about all of them below!

[​IMG][​IMG]
The whole story is placed in time around the Second War. The story begins with the duel of a human mage and a demonic spellcaster (eredar or nathrezim). Before they could finish the fight, an Infinite Agent appears, and removes them from the timeline for an unknown reason. When the mage wakes up, he founds himself in an alternative timeline, in a battle taking place between the Last Alliance (a coalition of humans, dwarves and high elves) and the Invading Fel Force (demons, fel orcs and undeads). All he knows that his enemy, the demon he fought, "arrived" earlier than him, and took the leadership of the Invaders, and that the Infinite Dragonflight wants the fall of the defenders. The demons estabilished a stronghold in the northeast of Duskwood, and opened a dimensional gate to support their attack. On the other hand, the alliance repaired one of their old fortress, built to defend a violet citadel, which generate a power-shield, blocking the way to the Alliance territory.

The invading force of the Burning Legion consists brutal battle-beasts, malicious eredar spellcasters and cunning assasins, while the alliance enlisted most of the mortal races, various nature creatures and elementals even.

High quality, realistic terrain Invasion in Duskwood comes with a very realistic and really high quality terrain.
Complex heroes Most heroes from the hero pool come with fair complexity and quite high skillcap. Playing them involves the understanding of different game mechanisms and the hero's playstyle.
Innovative combat Dozens of custom hero stats, short cooldown spells with acceptible mana costs, custom hero resources and unique item effects try to make fights and itemization more interesting.
Advanced spell tooltips Spells have very good-loking tooltips, with all the important stats that you might need to reach quickly highlighted. Cooldowns, mana costs, ratios, and all the relevant stats are well detailed, making sure you can always be aware of your hero's strength.
Unique health bars Invasion in Duskwood got rid of the default WarCraft 3 health bars, and implemented a new, much prettier and detailed one. It's capable of displaying the current health, level and remaining resource of the given hero, and even has a really good-looking, fraction-based background texture.
Clean shop The shop's interface is really clean and easy to understand. There are 5 self-explanatory categories, 3 of them having 4 sub-categories, or as they're called, "Tiers". Buying & selling items updates the tooltips of those recipes that require the bought/sold reagent, making shopping easier than it's ever been.
Suggested items & helpful information for beginners Suggested items, large amount of game mechanism explanations, helpful tooltips - Invasion in Duskwood has all of these, just to ensure that understanding and picking up the game is easy for the newcomers as well.
Interesting hero lores Every hero has a background story that fits into the WarCraft lore and the map's story as well. On top of these, sometimes they even have connection between one another.
Modecrafter Our brand new feature, called "The ModeCrafter" allows you to customize the game mode you're playing. You're given the option to modify a vast amount of stats, including starting gold and level, to passive gold and experience generation, kill rewards, deny, hero selection mode, lanes and even jungle creeps.
Game options Various UI options allow you to enable or disable features that you don't like. You can alter the camera's distance, damage texts, tower range indicators and lock the selection to your hero, if you feel you misclick too often.

v0.88 Beta [08-03-2013]


Open

Anub'Theran
  • [Q] Pounce: No longer targets units, only ground.
  • [Q] Pounce: Now it knocks up the first enemy hero Anub'Theran hits.
  • [Q] Pounce: Flight speed slightly increased.

Glacion
  • [E] Icy Pellet: Shatter range increased to 400 from 250.
  • [E] Icy Pellet: Cast range reduced to 650 from 700.

Gorr
  • [W] Crimson Blast: Missile speed increased by ~20%.

Shagutt
  • Kit reworked to better match our standards.
  • Credits to JesusHipster for the models.
  • A brief info can be found about the new spells below, taken from the selection board.
  • [Passive] Dark Arts: Every time Shagutt takes magic damage, he converts a portion of that damage into mana. Furthermore his spell penetration is increased for the next eight seconds.

  • [Q] Nightmare Surge: Shagutt draws energy from the life around him over five seconds, while his movement speed is reduced and cannot attack or cast other spells. He can then release the energy withdrawn to shot a dark projectile towards that deals damage to the enemies hit and reduces their resistance.

  • [W] Glimpse of Madness: Fills all enemy units in a cone front of Shagutt with dark corruption, dealing magic damage to them. Penetrating through all the resistance of a target will increase the damage they take from the spell, and slow their movement speed for a brief period.

  • [E] Nethermancy: Attacking or casting an ability grants Shagutt Devoured Soul Shards, that passively grant Shagutt bonus ability power. Activating this ability will consume them, forming a shield that absorbs damage and incereases Shagutt's spell penetration for a few seconds.

  • [R] Sear Soul: Blasts the targeted enemy hero, dealing direct damage to them and creating a link between Shagutt and the target, that heals Shagutt for a portion of all the damage he does to the victim. When the link expires or breaks the target to takes further damage.


Zaraxxus
  • [E] Chaotic Strike: Cast range reduced to 650 from 700.
  • [E] Chaotic Strike: AP Ratio reduced to 0.5 from 0.6.

  • Fixed a bug where selling items while dead that were bought while dead would provide zero gold.
  • Fixed a bug where buying multiple instances of a consumable while dead that your hero did not have before would grant only 1 charge.

Towers
  • Towers, minions and jungle creeps start their upgrades once the game starts, not after map init (so they won't get their first upgrade almost immediately once the first minion wave reaches the lane).
  • Towers now gain 10 armor and 15 attack damage every 4 minutes, 10 times, as opposed to 18 armor and 15 attack damage 6 times.

Core

  • Slow's effect color changed to light blue from yellow.
  • Various optimizations and tweaks here and there, that may (should) improve the performance.
  • The ModeCrafter has been implemented.
  • Double clicking on a hero you control opens their shop (reason).
  • Allies' current gold is now displayed on the gameboard (reason).

    Comment:
    The terrain - Absolutely flawless. Maybe you remember that I didn't find the terrain satisfying in an earlier version, but then you really improved upon that area and you've really done a great job.
    The transition between the 2 themes is well done, it's almost as if you had used a brush. The environment is detailed, a lot of beautiful areas such as waterfalls, etc.
    The map's layout is the generic AoS one, but the jungle is somewhat unique.
    The gameplay - You can easily say it's heavily inspired by League of Legends: Ability Power, portal to town, jungle buffs, etc.
    Now that is not something bad, since inspiration's purpose is not always a bad thing, it can be a direct copy and completely unoriginal or you can base your ideas on a main concept, such as LoL's.
    You, however, have improved on this subject, by creating quite interesting heroes, who have their own unique traits.
    I'm not gonna mention the lore/storyline, because I'm really gonna be realistic here and say that most people don't care about an AoS' storyline. :p AoS fans just want to find new strategies and playstyles and kill their enemies viciously.
    Other - The UI is probably the most remarkable and unique feature of your project: The hero selection is clean, informative and easy to use.
    The custom panel above a hero's head indicating his hp/mana/level is also new and can be useful, by making the bars bigger and also indicating the hero's level directly.
    There's multiple multiboards, one of them being for basic game stats, the other your character's personal stats.
    While they're both informative, the game stats one with the kills, deaths stats is a bit confusing, because of the icons used and no titles.
    I would also suggest you put the game time in the multiboard's title, so that you may indicate not only seconds, but also minutes elapsed.
    The custom resources have been used effectively in this as well, the models and icons all go together, each hero has his own color gradient for his spell icons.
    Although it's always a bit confusing when you use a passive icon for an active spell. (Hellforge Automaton's characteristic skill)
    The quest log contains all of the info needed, but I suggest you colorize keywords in the text and keep everything short and to the point.
    You've also added another useful feature, the tower range indicator. You usually know what the tower's range is after playing an AoS multiple times, but it's still really helpful to see a circle indicating the range.
    The shop system is something that's been done already, with the different skills used to go to other pages (Oasis and Desert 2), but yours is also really clean and you've also added a suggested items tab, which can be a lifesaver for a lot of starters.

    Overall - Your project is quite polished and it is something you and your team have been working on for a while. While it is really beautiful to look at, along with fun and interesting heroes to play with, the project does not seem to be beaming anything drastically new to the AoS genre.
    The most remarkable features would be the UI and the terrain. The gameplay does not bring anything original, it is still the complex hero styles which you have to master.
    It just seems you were not daring to go in a different direction with this project, it is way too close to the original concept.
    This does not mean that the project is bad, it is indeed quite a lot of fun to play thanks to its amazing heroes and stunning environment, however, it doesn't really leave an original impression.

    Other small suggestions:
    • It's "victorious", not "victorius" (ending)
    • Expand the game stats multiboard at the end
    • Nature's Attendant's Grounding's tooltip needs a fix: The learning tooltip has a cut off sentence in its description at the bototm, while the learned tooltip has all of the text
    Highly Recommended

    Those bars are made of 3 custom models: the background & level, the health and the resource (usually mana). The bars have 101 custom animations, which is periodically updated based on the hero's current health and remaining resource.

    And before anyone would ask: no, I'm not giving away its code, models or textures. We've put enough work into them to say that they're ours. I've told everyone who asked how the system works (we didn't even had this luxury), that should be enough :)

    Alright i will really need to play this in garena with people now :)

    Since its way more like League of legends then Dota its perfect and all the new ideas and items really fit me :)
    By that i mean :
    AD/AP scaling - i love it , not failing as mage because your skills are good as when you max them and then ultra fail late game .
    Tried 2 junglers it was fun :)
    No deny mobs - great .
    Still need to check more heroes , but from the once i saw there was no someting magicly owning you true the map or out of nowhere :)

    I love the spider buff :D
    I also Love the uber support gold item witch is like .... uber awesome :D

    I think you should make the tower showing range by default off , but thats wayyyy optional . And also watching every single mob 20 lvl is not really interesting .

    I'm looking forward to test it with people tomorow :)

    It all started with those :)

    The models IID uses cannot be downloaded from anywhere, they're custome ones made specifically for IID. You can get various cool ones though, like these:

    http://www.thehelper.net/threads/loadingbars-tallybars-w-e-bars.142619/
    http://www.hiveworkshop.com/forums/models-530/progresscastingbar-227064/?prev=search=bar&d=list&r=20
    http://www.hiveworkshop.com/forums/models-530/progressbar-v2-223392/?prev=search=bar&d=list&r=20

    I think that's irrelevant. Their level is set 20 when they're spawned, because I thought 1 would look ugly :) It doesn't mean anything.

    Nah it will not replace dota , all dota bots are probably moving to Dota 2 :)
    But will defenitly replace dota for all League players :D
