Journey to the End V5.3

This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
Journey to the End is a dungeon crawler warchaser style map with more depths, heroes and gameplay. You choose 1 hero and go on a journey to kill Kil'Jaeden and Archimonde by the order of Medivh, but it seems there's more to it than just killing or destruction?

In this map, your hero will have an unlockable abilities which can be unlocked inside the upgrade center! Each hero has certain role like healer, summoner, dps, etc. But still be able to make themselves useful all the times throughout the game even healers can deal good amount of damage too!

In each area, you will face different enemies with different abilities and they are more stronger, but it's not frustrating at all! It's not like you have to attack the same boss for like 20-30 minutes or 1 hour. You can clear each areas very fast but the world is large and awaits you to explore it! All bosses except last 3 bosses drop items and have 2 lifes, some drops can even be combined too! So try to explore each item potential to make the most out of it!

There will be an objective along the way like defend a VIP or reach an area before time run out!, make sure to clear it to proceed or else you will lose in an instant but it's not difficult at all with the power of teamwork! After that, the world is yours to explore!

Don't worry about dying as there, we have circle of revival for you! Use that to revive your hero and you will be good to go but beware... It costs gold to revive though...

The map is very long so you need A LOT OF TIME to clear this. Hopefully, it will worth your time.

Have fun!

P.S. Always restart Warcraft 3 before or after you played this map or else you will get desync!

- You're using Blizzard's standard spells with little or no modification to them at all.
- You didn't import the DISBTN of some icons

2agLCcZ.jpg


- You didn't import the portrait of some models

Z04LkFM.png


-Opening cinematic cannot be skipped
- Medivh and the main base can be killed
- Terrain is ugly and is flat
- Some bossfights are just plain melee, they've no spells or scripts

Overall, I'm rating this map 3/5 vote for Awaiting Update, will gladly change my review when you've made the necessary updates..


You can also tell me if you're dissatisfied with my comment/rating and I'll delete both my comment/rating from your map's page since it belongs to you in the first place.

You can always tell me if you want me to review/test a BETA Map you've developed and I'll gladly do it.

Fix those DISBTN's for the love of blizzard icons. THIS IS NOT OPTIONAL, IT'S MANDATORY ACORDING TO RULES.
Fix those portraits while you are at it.

Set to Awaiting update
======================================================================

Always check/recheck the Map Submission Rules! (Map Submission Rules)

These will help make a better description:


Screenshots could attract more players to download your work. Make the best of them.

A credits list is required where the names of the resource (models, skins, icons, spells, sound etc.) authors are mentioned along with the specific resource. It would be a luxury to have links leading to the used resources. Credits in the Quest Log would be appreciated.

A changelog in the first post would be helpful to reviewers and notify fans about the newest implementations to your map.

Why is the author name and the user name different?

EDIT: please replace the older version with the new one.

EDIT2:
-are you the original author? If not, mention that fact. There's a difference between the author and your user name
-it's weird that melee heroes can attack air units and from a distance with no projectile
-as @Zenonoth wrote, it's a vulgar display of text with no constructive use; it's not even funny
-the Archimonde icon that replaces wood is not present when you hover the cursor over an upgrade
-as mentioned above by other users, terrain isn't that good

Overall seems enjoyable but needs good polishing.
I'll also test it further in multiplayer since it's funner that way.

Awaiting Update.

EDIT:
-most bosses have reincarnation and mana burn
-reaching the second town you can just pass through the ice blocks and the cinematic starts. Player red isn't taken to Uther and still fights during the scene. Afterwards the red player is taken outside of the base to the north of the ice block and can't get in until the undead base appears and the block ultimately falls
-troops protecting the eastern gate in this town might stay in the way of the heroes and only "clear" it when the enemy comes to them

Please add a changelog in your description so we can know what you add/modify.
Also remove the tag which doesn't fit the map theme: Story Acting.

EDIT: add a credits list. You can start with these: Resources in Use by Journey to the End V3.8b | HIVE
There's a issue with Medivh not returning near the Observatory and instead remaining near the north gate. Actually he does but might take a while which could be dangerous.
What after level 75? No more spells.
Clearly it's a map made by someone who has some issues. I advise you to remove/change things pertaining the anal region.

I love this map. We love this map. Our group of friends play this map whenever possible. We never completed it. It was hard at the end but we enjoy it. 6 hours of session and we only reached half of the map. We will not yield though. Today i see we got a new version. Cant wait to play MUWAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. Time to rescue our medivh from getting pregnant w00t w00t.

It's seriously long for a map without any ways to save it, also the certain jokes are really unfunny and threw the immersion out of the window, but I guess that's not the point of this map. Nonetheless it was fun to play (I've only played a few hours and really want to finish it somehow).

Nice map, played solo failed at undead invasion, killed the pilord boss but he reincarnated and killed mediv XC

Kael model looks nice except his face, too large mouth, and his chin should be more slim, not squared like human barbarian, might try with more players some other time, maybe when you host it.

Also I get it you made it sor of a joke how Mediv mocks Arch as homo but still, kind of kills the mood of the game (specially as Arch is my second favorite guy after Kael).

I'm going to list only cons since i don't like anything about this map.

- Foul and childish language
- Silly story/point of the game
- Overpriced items with no real benefit
- Forced to watch that insulting and lazy made opening cinematic
- Lot's of useless spells on Heroes
- Ugly simple terranin
- Unbalanced enemies and heroes
- Some hotkeys didn't work

That's what i can remember on top of my head so far.

1)make cinematics skipable. If I play this 5 times, I don't want to listen to it 5 times.

2)same as neven, he made some good points. Story is stupid, at least give option to skip if you don't want to change it...

This map has potential, but you need to work on it a lot more, and listen to what people say to you

Too hard when you dont farm and the worst part is that you are making it really attractive to farm gold and xp at the buildings before going into town. What's the point of such a game, I can just farm for 2 hours and then everything is easy. You just reduced the entire game's balance to how much time I'm willing to waste farming before the game starts. That ruins the entire game completely.

You don't seem to have played this map. I have not seen any broken hot keys, This is one guy doing all the coding story and terrain some people aren't talented at everything personally I like the terrain how it is not to flashy or anything there is tons of great items in the map but you don't seem to understand how to read. ALSO what spells are you calling useless I haven't really come across any that are 100% useless.

Pros:
1. Complete game and story, includes starting and closing. This is important, as in some map, heros fight for just a single line of words.
2. Various stages. In each stage there is a complete enemy system including tank, healer, spellcaster, summoner and attacker.

Cons:
1. Poorly balanced heros. Nukers are too weak at mid and late game, and DPS heros are too weak at all time. Skills are extreamly unbalanced. Skills bought are much stronger than skills learned at the time you can buy it, and since skills are not related to hero stats, they can hardly damage late game enemys.
2. Shitty designed skills. For example, multishot is not a good skill for most DPS heros because orbs and even critical strikes may disable this skill. For another example, orbs such as Rexxar's costs too much mana. It's hardly used even in late game1k ar
3. Unthoughtful gameplay constants. In this map, 1 agi => 0.3 armor, and armor damage reduction formula remains 0.06. These default values make both hero and enemy too strong. An enemy with 1k armor is very common in late game in this map, what does this mean? Each point of hp can absorb 61 damage. So if the enemy have 30k hp, there needs at least 1.8m raw phisical damage to kill it. That's why DPS heros are always too weak. Cleaving attacks ignore armor, so melee heros still have their chance. For heros, a tank could get up to 10k armor at late game. Trembles, Arhimonde. Damage return abilities ignore armor, which make melee enemy kill them self in late game. What is fucking unbelievable is a tank can have both cleaving attack and damage return ability. Akama is god.
4. Endless bugs. One must save every 20 minutes for ramdom crash. Skills change their position each time you load, and sometime lost their shortcut. Terminator suicide everywhere, pick up book then die, buy 10k skill then die, and sometimes buy 10k skill but not die. I can't even understand those bugs. The game crashes when your pet use book of strength, that's reasonable. The game crashes when you move the position of died illusion, that's reasonable. But how could one pick up magic book and die?

Hello,

there is an issue when you try to load the saved game. A friend of mine and me started a game, played it for ca. 1.5 hours, saved, and when we tried to load it nothing happens. The one who saved the game just see all buttons grayed out on his screen and that is it. We also tried to wait for 5-6 minutes but with no luck.
We are using:
  • battle.net to play it in multiplayer
  • the same game version (1.30.4.11274)
  • Windows 10

Also tried to lunch the game from the install directory. Port forwarding, adding ip rules to the firewall/disabling it, disabling our AV software, rebooting modems/PCs - no success.
I know this might be due to the old game engine and/or similar but is anyone still playing this without any issues?
