Impossible Raiding Squad v3.8

Submitted by AzNGuNzFoo
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
(Map is protected)
Map Description
You are part of the Impossible Raiding Squad. As a member, you must go through a series of missions varying in difficulty. It will require teamwork, skill, and strategy to complete the missions assigned. Will your squad have what it takes to be successful?

All of the Missions assigned are randomized. In addition, they will also show objectives and hints to further guide your Squad to victory.

Impossible Raiding Squad is a team based game. Players play as a team and complete numerous missions or "levels" that usually consist of Boss Fights. At the start of each level players are able to choose which units they want to use for the level, ranging from Tank, Healer, DPS, and Support/CC type units. Because of how the map is setup, there are more than one way to complete each level and thus creating some replay value. After level 1, the levels are also Randomized. Each level will state what the mission or the level requirement is at the start of the level. Generally each level requires a balanced team of Tank, DPS, Support, and Healing units.


Features
Unit names are color-coded according to type (Red names for Tanks, Blue for DPS, Purple for Support, and Green for Healing).

At the beginning of each game, Player 1 (Red) may pick a Difficulty setting of either Easy, Normal, or Hard. It is recommended that new players start with the Easy Difficulty.

There are 3 Level Skips and when reaching 0 lives, the Raiding Squad will be defeated.

There are 42 total levels. In order to win, your Raiding Squad must complete 30 of them.

This map consists of a huge number of units to choose from (35 to be exact). All of the units are well balanced and every unit has its own specific purpose. Different levels require the abilities and uses of different units. Out of the 35 units, there are 4 types to choose from: Tank, Healer, DPS, and Support/CC. There are 7 Tank units, 8 Healer units, 10 DPS units, and 10 Support/CC units.

Suggested Players: 7

This map has a mini game feel to it. The map also appeals to people who love teamwork games with strategy required in group composition, knowing boss fights, and dodging boss spells.

At the simplest description, this map is an Arcade-Style Boss Fight map.

EDIT: This map is not yet in its Final version. However, it is still enough to be played.

    I apologize, I uploaded the wrong version of the map (I have like 4 laying around). But I updated it now. Again, sorry for the inconvenience.

    P.S. any feedback at all would be greatly appreciated.

    the games great but its too difficult ik ik its impossible but still have learning difficulty as i have not completed more than 7 rounds so far. mostly get to 2-3 :/.
    thats the only problem i really have in it.
    i remember when you still had it unrandomized what happened to that? seems like you reworked the whole map except for the idea.

    I actually did rework the map. The map you are referring to, Impossible Missions Squad, was discontinued because my laptop got stolen and it had the unprotected version of it. Also, I thought that that map was too messy and unorganized and I just wanted to start over with a new concept, although still similar.

    Oh and as for the "Impossible" part, try doing easy first, once you can do pretty well in easy, start doing normal. I have personally tested all the levels on normal mode and I can say that its not "Impossible" lol. Its all about group composition.

    P.S. I know I'm a little late, but happy new years lol

    ah shame the maps i was creating also were destroyed when my computer crashed. well i always put it on easy but somehow everyone is a noob and I always have 1-2 leavers. try adding a function where others gain control once they leave as it would make it better.

    I'd like to see the entire map with custom models. Although that will require you to minimize the map size.

    Although I did use custom models, I don't think that I will fill the entire map with custom models. I'm trying to keep the map size at a minimal. Also, I think it is gameplay that makes a map enjoyable, not just custom models.

    no it is Impossible RAIDING Squad. Similar to raiding in world of warcraft (i.e. boss fights) but it also has arena fights (also similar to world of warcraft).

    Impossible Missions Squad was a different map that I made. However, whereas Missions squad focused on a player's skill with standard blizzard units (similar to impossible scenarios in starcraft), Raiding squad focused on a player's skill with custom units. Hope that helped.

    Thanks for the kind words, but its not perfect yet lol.
    Was there anything you wanted to say about it (comments/criticism)? I always love to hear them.

    Also, expect to see the next update with newer and more scripted bosses, and more objective based missions.

    As always, I welcome people who have tried this map to tell me your feedback or what you think of it.

    i like maps when you need teamwork to win but this map was very chaotic , some heroes skills are very weak , cooldowns for all healers are too long , every tank should get some surivival thing which he can use like wolf raider dodge skill,
    terrain should be better in your "main base" add some doadas , camera lock command is bugged
    this map have potential 4/5 hop you will make this map better than it is now +rep for you

    This map has the potential to become quite fun but I sudjest giving each unit its own seperate abilities instead of giving each type of unit (Healer/Dps e.g) the same abilities in afew different combinations.

    Greetings from the year of our Lord 2018.
    Just wanted to say that I really prefer the old version of the map, with standard units and stuff. Here in future, we're kinda tired of fancy unnecessary custom bullsh*t that map creators consider 'cool' and that you have to learn from scratch in each and every map. There's so much of it in every direction, it stopped being interesting and creative long time ago.
    I LOVE the idea of creating 'minigame'-styled challenges based on players' knowledge of how the default game works. I'd consider the old map to be one of lesser-known classics. Was ashamed to read people criticizing it for not having custom stuff.

    Hey this map is Impossible Raiding Squad and I used custom heroes to emulate the wow raiding feel.
    Another map i made is Impossible Missions Squad which uses all standard wc3 units and missions/scenarios are centered around that.
    Although both maps have been lost to time and will no longer be receiving updates.

    currently i am working on an Art of Defense map which can be found under my resources tab, although it is more altered melee than standard wc3 melee, becoming a little more "altered" with each patch v, so if u like more standard gameplay then try the older v of it

    Thanks for the reply, yeah I just discovered Impossible Missions is still on hive, but unapproved for some reason so it didn't appear in search at first, this is why I thought this map replaced Missions. It was a long time and I'm a bit lost here xD
    Good to see other work going, will check Art of Defense, it sounds interesting.
