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.

  • [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.

ModeCrafter
  • The player in the first taken player slot is the crafter.
  • The crafter has 60 seconds to configure various game options.
  • Other players can see the board and the current options, but cannot interact with it.

Options
  • New option: Turn on/off fog.

  • 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.
  • Towers' attack cooldown increased to 1.5 seconds from 1.1 seconds.

Core
  • Fixed a bug that'd make it so that the last person to deal damage to you would always get the kill (a.k.a. it did not time out and even if you died 10 seconds later to a tower, they'd still get the kill).
  • 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).

    I can surely tell that texture settings don't affect latency in Warcraft 3.
    I experimented (my network sux 7 kb/ps) bout max and min texture settings worked the same ..so now i am using all maxed knowing that warcraft 3 engine lag can only be caused by bad network.
    Fix the connection and enjoy :ogre_datass:.

    It's not latency I'm talking about, but FPS (Frame/sec) :)

    I'm of the opinion that lasting effects such as the tornado Q of wind serpent should not give the hero aggro if he moves out and back into the range of the tower.

    The problem with that would be that you could be like "ok, ima apply my DoT to you, run out of the tower's range, then come back and rape your tower while're your back, being scared of me engaging you".

    You have to take it into consideration that using something that deals periodic damage on the enemy can "zone you out of the tower's range". Imagine the same happening to you: there's a wild tornado chasing and raping you, you can't do anything, and the enemy is slowly taking down your tower while you have no chance of responding whatsoever. I think it'd be kinda frustrating, even more than having to stay away for a small duration.

    The thing is this scenario happens with all offensive spells, ur saying that only DoT spells cause an enemy to stay back afraid when assaulting a tower? Tornado is a bad example, cuz it requires the enemy to run back, but just basic DoT spells should not cause aggro i think, other offensive spells shouldn't get advantage in this situation for no reason, just cuz its DoT doesn't mean its any different. (In regards to tornado u are right)

    Edit: just found typo in wicked sick spree it says 'whicked sick'

    My main goal now is to balance out the map and fix all the bugs. Heroes can wait. In fact, they MUST wait, because I don't have an icon creator at the moment, and I won't rely on premade ones.

    Deny is out of question :) It's a silly thing that was only implemented because in Blizzard RTS' you could attack your own units. To me, it doesn't seem healthy at all, and it's seriously, killing your own mates?

    I think if people work hard on killing someone, they deserve the kill. And just because other maps have that "feature", it doesn't mean IID should have it as well :) You have to find other ways to defeat your lane opponent now.

    It's already hard enough to balance out the map with 24 heroes and 114 items, adding more heroes would only make it even harder; and as I said, I don't have an icon creator, which is also a crucial reason why it has to wait.
    I have a relatively good ranged AD carry, duelist hero concept, I might implement it in the near future.

    I don't know if this is bug in your map. I already tested and it show this error in your map only.

    It suddenly show blue screen of death with "ati32vga.dll" problems.

    I use Window xp sp3 with ATI HD 6870

    Wow! 5/5
    The game is really awesome and unique especially the heroes and abilities. It reminds me a lot of League of Legends (and I believe some concepts are taken from there).
    It's great but I noticed some minor bugs:
    -You can somehow go through the right side of the bridge in the lower left jungle. You can directly go to the water area(pond, like, whatever you call it) from the land, and end up on the bridge upon reaching it.
    -When leveling a skill up, Gorr's third skill doesn't immediately show up. I am not sure if this also happens to the other heroes.

    Above that, the game is ABSOLUTELY awesome! Would love to see this with AI :)

    Thanks for the kind words, and for reporting these things!

    1) I'll check the pathing map. It was the last thing that was made and we're kinda in a hurry, so it might have happened that a certain spot remained pathable.

    2) What do you exactly mean with this? That Lances of Agony is not immediately on the list of abilities that you can learn? If so, it's not a bug; after activating it, when you have 3 shots, it's disabled and a dummy ability is enabled, that you can target a spot with and launch one of the missiles. Once you've cast it 3 times, or the ability expires, the hero ability is enabled again, and you can level the spell up.
    Unfortunately, this was the only solution; Eng. Upgrade was out of question, because the hero and dummy abilities have different targetting mechanisms, and somehow it was screwed up when I tried to make the spell using EU.

    I'm having an exam tomorrow, and maybe I won't even get home sooner than the day after tomorrow, so it'll have to wait a little.

    I've checked the pond's pathing map and it's unpathable (some parts by blockers others by the depth of water). It seems the shouldn't-be-but-still-walkable parts of the pond are the ones blocked by only the water, which implies that the blocking capability of deep water is somehow disabled.

    Very nice map, the polishing of it exceeds the limits of professionalism. The mechanic is very original now that "mana" has more purposes than filling energy to the hero to cast spells. I imagine you've got ideas from ToB?? mainly the main bar on heroes?? :)

    My apologies for this noob question, but... I'll dare to do it:

    IS there any plan to develop an AI?? it would be awesome. Anyways good job, is clear the love put in this project.

    Thank you very much! Though I'll add more and more features, work on the "Information" section and such, so it'll become even better as time progresses :)

    Yes, I was thinking of adding an AI one day, but it really has low priority at the moment. As I've already said a million times, I want to work on the bugs, balance, and the modecrafter, possibly with the second game mode first, then maybe I'll add an AI too. Maybe, as I've never written anything like that before. Of course it'd be cool as practice :) However, due to school I'm really short on time, thanks to the exam. period.

    And this leads us to a slightly off-topic thing: I got your PM(s), and I'm honestly sorry for not replying immediately, but I've been busy studying in the past days, and I just didn't want to send a ~2 words message back.

    About the status plates: well, by the time I read about ToB, they were already done. It more likely came from LoL, and the fact that I always hated the lack of mana bars in WC3 (I had a small tool to display them, but it's kinda buggy). So I made them, and had my awesome & talented, by that time also new friend, I3lackDeath draw the background textures. I only got positive feedback about them and a lot of people also wanted to know how they work, so I think it's safe that say that they are a quite great success.

    These are the original bars, BTW :) But after I got to know I3lackDeath and he accepted my request, I remade them using only models & vJASS.

    About the blue screen issues: it's not a "bug", it's your compture trying to tell you that something isn't working properly. I admit that the map really is kinda resource-heavy due to the enormous amount of custom script used, so it might be that WC3 tries to push your PC beyond its limits.

    I have a constant 65 FPS when playing the map (didn't test it with 10 people, in a team fight though, but since the code is really optimised, it shouldn't lag hard, if it lagged at all).

    Hi there!

    Based on the description you gave, I think that will be a driver problem. Try updating / reinstalling your VGA driver.
