In Jungle Dungeon their are 5 different item types with 4 different rarities. Most items are bought from shops or dropped by bosses. You can only have one item type at the same in your inventory, except from consumables - where you can have as many as you like at the same time. Rarities give you a sense of how good the item is in comparison to other items, but don't matter in any other way. Some items can only be acquired through drops.

Some items give extra stats if the wearer belongs to the same race as the item. Item races are the same as the races for classes: Human, Night Elf, Orc, Undead and Blood Elf.


[​IMG]
Weapon: Offensive items - (Swords, Daggers, Staffs etc.)
Armor: Defensive items - (Shields, Helmets, Cloaks etc.)
Accessory: Property/Active items - (Emblems, Tokens, Objects etc.)
Spirit: Aura items - (Brilliance, Devotion, Endurance, Unholy and Vampiric)
Consumables: Consumable supportive items - (Potions, Scrolls etc.)


[​IMG]
Basic - First Item Tier (Chapter 1)
Rare - Second Item Tier (Chapter 2)
Unique - Third Item Tier (Chapter 3)
Legendary - Fourth Item Tier (Chapter 4)

    When i play games i usually look for ways to express myself and the way i approach things is i try to break games as much as possible or look for interesting ideas.
    I just find games that have a linear approach boring there are only one set way of approaching in the problem.
    Thats why i chose not to rate the map, since somebody else might find it fun.
    I thought i'd be honest with my opinion at least, better to put it out bluntly.

    "And to quote you that the map "will never work in current environment on Bnet" is just a hollow statement."
    It's not a hollow statement and i'll tell you why. The problem started after the bots got removed, because you can't hold players responsible anymore for leaving. No stat tracking means players aren't commited anymore. So for every game theres minimum 1 leaver per game. Just like in my game, when the healer left the game it completely ruined the game for everyone else in it. It's not just your map, i've played Battleships, Battletanks, Rabbits vs Sheep, Parasite, Tree Tag, RT ladder. None of these games are playable anymore because leavers skew the balance or players are too essential ingredients for the game to work. It's not until i made Warcraft Royale that i discovered that i'd inadvertently had solved a problem i didn't even know was a problem, until i played other games. But it's not appliceable to most maps since most maps are team based. So my advice to you is to make your map as fun in single player as it would be in multiplayer. Focus on the map from a singleplayer perspective. So that when you have leavers it's still fun and not unplayable.

    Yes I am aware of these issues but how do suggest to work around this problem then? Not to make team based games? I have actually tried hard to implement a system that can keep you game going when player leaves the game, this will if course not work if for example the most important role leaves the (if that was a healer and the only one you had). Also in this patch desyncs have been a problem i have been facing with this map aswell and been trying to solve ever since the 1.30 patch came out - which was another thing that made me develop the adaptable difficulty system.

    In my opinion (which is of course biased since im the creator) i do see this map being a fun experience for a single player in multiplayer. Grouping up with strangers trying to clear a dungeon, discussing strategies, finding out effecient compositions, killing a boss on a higher difficulty for the first time. I have met a lot of new friends through playing this map, that are now active in the discord and we play from time to time - cause the map was inviting communication and strategy between players. Of course you can end up in a bad game. But saying that "I could see why players would leave the game" is just a rude way to give feedback and unethic to say the least, especially from a mapmaker yourself knowing how much effort there is put into maps like these.

    I would design the game up as a singleplayer first and multiplayer second. Since multiplayer can only add to it's value. If the DPS can't heal, let them buy potions. If the healer can't DPS, let them buy summons. Give players options.

    I'm not trying to be disrespectful, but honestly it's better for you if i'm blunt about my opinion. When you're working on a game you're pretty much blinded by your own opinions. I can play my own maps with a glee and think to myself that this is gods gift to earth. But then i let others play it and i get comments like "shit map". You have to distance yourself from your own game to understand. I've been polishing turds before and it's not until now that i understand the phrase: "kill your own darlings". If the concept of your map doesn't resonate with players instantly i would reconsider working on it or change things up, but thats just my personal opinion.

    I see what you mean but that is also the charm of a game in a way, that you have to rely on other people than yourself. I review your feedback as any other feedback, however you are the first to express such a bad experience in such harsh words to claim the experience what not just your own. Il add this to the list of other feedback i have gotten through out the months on the discord, here and from other people i have played with.

    Finally a reminder to you - please think constructive when you give feedback. Maybe you don't care, but usually the person receiving it cares a lot. And there is no excuse to say "you need to hear it like this". Pros and cons, suggestions and explanations. Have a good day!

    Hi, just played 4 games with randoms, solid map! Really enjoyed the hero choice, alignment system and weapon synergy.
    Unfortunately feels a little boring after couple of runs. I would like to share my suggestions to make already good map more interesting.

    Suggestions:
    1. Additional pathways. It would be great to have multiple choices how to came up to the boss, because every time the path and mobs spawns are identical this really feels boring after couple of runs. So adding multiple ways/tunnels with different mob spawns could give a sense of choice.
    2. Collectibles spawns in different places. Dynamite barrels could spawn randomly, after couple of games you already know where they are.
    3. More Random optional stuff. There could be some optional quests like escort npc/arena/maze - anything. The quests can be accessible in a camp/village and ideally should required teamwork, as a reward it might be additional life to a team or some item with aura/buff :). The idea behind that is to give players more ways to gain gold/rare items.


    Definately recommend this map to try out!

    Looking for updates,
    Best regards.

    Thanks for the feedback, glad you enjoy the game. I am aware of the points of improvements you point out. This project is currently on hold, since i have been working on another one for the last couple of months. Join the discord if you have not already.

    Peace!

    Alignment is great. It balance the team.
    However, bosses are identical. They have same skills.

    Small review
    ~
    ~~Negatives/Bugs/Suggestions~~

    - Crates and critters drop chance of tomes is too low.

    - I think regular creeps should drop tomes/pots as well with a low chance.

    - Lots of text has those dark colors like purple,brown,etc. which are really hard to read, i suggest changing them to a brighter color.

    - Because the map is based on those square shape zones and all the mobs are pretty much in the same place everytime the map can get a bit boring/stale after a while, i suggest changing up the pattern a bit including a larger variety of mobs/mini bosses for each "level/zone" and changing their places as well.

    - Since this is a "dungeon" type map, i expected to find more secret/hidden places, but there doesn't seem to be any. Since the map is already pretty finished and full i suggest implementing some hidden portals in some corners similar to the explosive barrels, these portals will teleport you to some other optional mini boss / boss / game rooms for exemple, giving the dungeon more of a magical/mysterious vibe to it and it will make it less stale.

    - U can kite bosses out of their zone with the spell "Devil's Grip" from the vampire class, (therefore abusing the war3 system and the boss won't reset).

    - The dragon boss and other bosses that have a damage spell can be abused as well, using 1 dmg spell on them (without attacking) the boss will use his own dmg spell in return and then go back to sleep/remain in his spot, using this method all bosses can be soloed without even stepping in their zones, (but will take a lot of time to kill them tho).

    - "Bone armor" item seems to have a 5 sec. cooldown in the tooltip, even tho the item has no active spell, clicking on it doesn't do anything.

    - The "Full moon armor" spell effect from the Vampire seems a bit over the top for just a simple armor buff, i suggest changing the animation to something smaller that doesn't blocks the vision too much.

    - Each class should have atleast 1 spell that scales with their main stats, because in late game the spells fall off pretty hard, especially the damage ones.

    - Even tho this is supposed to be a dungeon like adventure map, i feel like most of the corridors are too narrow in my opinion.




    ~~Positives~~

    - I like the different models of the heroes/bosses and some of the critters, they look pretty awesome.

    - The Hero spells seem to have a strong theme to them and are very unique as well, the are pretty balanced too.

    - I like the fact that there is a description for every boss, some of them were really funny.

    - The boss fights are decent, probably impossible to solo some of them on the hardest difficulty (without abusing the war3 system).

    I have just finished playing this map with my friend. We had two runs - in the first one we played as the Commander and the Sorceress, but it didnt work out and we RMK'd.
    In the second run he went the Giant and I took the Priest and it was quite easy, we didn't get any events or anything like it, the bosses were quite simple and overall we had no problems whatsoever (till the point that we stopped paying attention, which got one of us killed :D ) but still, we made it to the final boss with about 15 lives left and the boss was impossible. Not because the boss would have too much damage, he managed to tank it well and I healed him enough so that the boss would eventually go down without either of us being in danger, but these damn hydras he kept creating that would hit the Giant once and then go straight at me. I, being a Priest, had only 300 hp, so three hits from them would result in my death, healing pots and spells would not be enough and this resulted in the hydras massing up and eventually killing the both of us.

    I think it was too easy for most of the dungeon, some fights with the hydras being exceptionally long because of their spawning of lesser hydra upon death. I think that this should be made a bit harder so that it won't become as boring as quickly.
    I also noticed that most spells have melee buffs on them (Priest's Guardian Angel had the Rejuvenation buff on the target).
    And last but not least is the quest reward. It's nice that there are miniquests along the way but I saw no point in receiving 25 gold just before the final boss. That was just too low of a reward.

    Overall - I dunno about the score :D It was nice, it was well done, but I can't say I really enjoyed it too much, because the fights took too long with too little action and it was too repetitive.

    Very nice game :D had much fun griding the Duo Challange. Game is hard but its doable after you played a few times. For people who like dungeon crawling type of games -> Jungle dungeon is a must play !

    5/5 fun map. Some minor spelling issues found, for example: The map says "Muliboard" instead of Multiboard :)
    Uo instead of You, etc. Mostly in hints and quest texts.

    Really liked the map in numbers section!
    This map does indeed have: 399 Units, 2524 Doodads (Trees/Destructibles), 5903 Other Doodads, 153 Regions, 539 Triggers, 227 Variables, 248 Functions, 112 Sounds, 859 Objects: [167 Standard, 692 Custom] 244 Units: [23 Standard, 221 Custom], 167 Items: [13 Standard, 154 Custom], and 394 Abilities: [99 Standard, 295 Custom].

    Oh, and 3 songs: Heart Of The Tide, Post Apocalyptic Conversation, and Unknow Watters by Antonio S. Ribeiro from "Music Contest #11" (Double typo not mine, copied song title straight from ID3 tags...) Correct spelling would be Unknown Waters.

    Plus, two illegal imported files with colon in their name:
    Image - Console Texture 4: HumanUITile04.TGA
    and
    Image - Game Menu Border: human-options-menu-border.tga

    So with file names like that, the gameplay constants must look like this:
    Image - Console Texture 4: Image - Console Texture 4: HumanUITile04.TGA
    Image - Game Menu Border: Image - Game Menu Border: human-options-menu-border.tga

    One last problem: Item tooltips! Black or deep purple text is not readable on dark gray background. (Words like Unique, Warlock, Legendary, etc.)

    Unique, Warlock, Legendary
