1. Shouldn't make the terrain so flat as it doesn't look too nice. 2. I don't think this is an RPG. It's however a Defense/Survival type map, yes. 3. Wow, why does it take 4 minutes for a next wave/level to start? I know about the command but still....

    1. Shouldn't make the terrain so flat as it doesn't look too nice.
    2. I don't think this is an RPG. It's however a Defense/Survival type map, yes.
    3. Wow, why does it take 4 minutes for a next wave/level to start? I know about the command but still.
    4. Love the auto healing potion use. However later in the game, on higher levels, the enemy will kill you before the hero can autouse them. Might be because of stun that I did not notice? I was on stage 6 with the Footmen and stuff. Or might it be because there are some units with really heavy damage due to attack and/or spells?
    5. Shouldn't the second boss' Rain of Fire cease after he/it dies?
    6. Also love the Horadric Cube like Arcane Vault.
    7. I'm not sure if so many spells should not cost any mana.
    8. I think I've got two level 3 items from four level 2 items.
    9. Why not make Ankhs stack too!?

    Quality work nonetheless.

    Approved.

    Thanks for the review!
    Terrain - it is the first that i'll improve in future versions. Yeah, now it looks not so cool, i just was less focused on it when map was in progress.
    You're right about rpg tag. I remove it.
    The idea about 5 minutes before start is to give player a time to reforge items. Also, i am planning to add duels later, which will take place in that period.
    About healing potion - yea, it might not work properly when you take massive damage, simply cause it uses easy script "hero health less than x -> heal it". As i know, there is no simple way to make hero "unkillable", without a massive triggers, so i left it as it is. Also, Healing Potion was conceived as early game item, to help heroes with no healing (or ineffective healing), and not as late item. (Cause later in game it heals very little).
    Think rain of fire should stop when boss dies. I'll check it. Btw, boss mechanics will be redesigned seriously in future versions.
    About mana, i'm not sure how to implement it interesting, i don't like when mana ends in middle of fight in maps with this kind of gameplay. I more like spamming skills. I thought to create a hero that uses mana as +% bonus to it's damage, this concept just did not live to this version.
    Two level 3 items from four level 2 items. - thats intended, you have a chance to create additional item when reforging. It has 25% chance, and works with items that being rare and below quality (Map has a description for this - on Anvil reforge button).
    Ankhs don't stack cause i wanted to make them risky item, that uses inventory slot, without giving any stats. Actually not sure about Ankhs, it is the candidate number 1 for removing in future versions.
    I hope you liked my map!

    Really nice work. I like this map. Fast and quick battles, which scale really well. Great item system which feels so good and rewarding.
    "Unstoppable action. No cutscenes. Pure gameplay." is what you promised, and I would say you did deliver.
    However, there are always some parts that are improveable, some more, some less and a map can always take some polishing!

    1. The hotkey for the Rogues 'E' Spell is not working.
    2. Units only come from the top wave. If it is like that because I was playing alone it's fine. However, it feels a bit weird that the boss comes from the middle, but maybe that is just me.
    3. Maybe give the players 1-3 common boxes in the beginning? Feels a bit empty the first round without having anything.
    4. An idea that I had in mind for Mana: Make every hero have 100 mana from the beginning. The mana stays at 100 for the whole game except in some items it gets boosted by +20 or something like that, depending on the rarity. The mana refreshes REALLY fast, like 10 points per second (possibly higher on INT heroes) and the skill costs are not that high, around 10-20. Like this you would still keep your fast enjoyable gameplay, but would also some more indept tactics and gameplay. Players would have to choose more what to use in certain fights. Of course you would need to change the balancing according to this, because the heroes would be weaker by probably quite a bit. I would be happy to see this idea, but it is up to you.
    5. I feel like the gems you can put in to item upgrading are too strong, even though they already cost 5000. They are so insanely good in the higher tiers.
    6. You can still get multiple epic items at once, even though it is said that it only goes up to rare items.
    7. I would prefer some ingame button, maybe at the castle or a seperate building to start the round faster. For me it was fine that you have 5 minutes time, but I dislike these chat command things. This is of course just personal preferance.
    8. Please code an AI for this map. I think it is doable even though your abilities and the gameplay are somewhat advanced. This would fit your map really well.
    9. The terrain. I do not have to say anything more to this because you and deepstrasz already said everything about this. But this is still important, and would definitely upgrade your map from a 4 stars map to a 5 stars map.
    10. More heroes. Take your time with them, but I'm very eager to see new classes and styles. You're doing really great on the ones we're having right now. Hope to see more in future.

    I'm very happy that you liked map! Here is my answers:

    1. It works fine for me, just tested it (using 1.28). There is also proper "E" hotkey in editor.
    2. Yes, units come from top cause you have played solo. Top wave is used by 1 and 2 players, right wave - 3 and 4 players.
    3. Thats a good idea, i think i'll add multiple difficulties in future, and boxes in the start will be a part of it.
    4. Sounds cool, for hero-style of gameplay like WoW demon hunter.
    5. Probably they are too strong when playing solo, i think ingots should be less powerful in multiplayer. I like when player at 9 stage has all six slots filled. Actually, haven't tested this map with multiple players.
    6. That's ok, probably i was wrong with the translation. "Reforging items with rare or less quality have a chance to create additional item" - it says now, meant that four rare items also can create additional epic item.
    7. Yea, i'll create button or something in future.
    8. That might be very hard for me, but i'll try. AI is a cool thing since i'm also playing solo most time.
    9. I updated terrain in 1.1, doesn't it looks nicer? I'm not sure how to improve terrain even better.
    10. Creating custom heroes is my favorite part of the editing.So i'll definitely create them more in future versions.
    Stay tuned on!;)

    Added few common-epic quality items
    Uncommon, rare and epic items get increased prices (you will get more gold for selling them)
    Treasure prices now equal to item prices that are inside

    Heroes now gain 25 hp per one strength point, up from 20
    Radrick, Max, Hazabel, Adabellen movement speed increased to 305
    Hazabel's Channel Demonfire bolts now will find another target instead of dissapearing, if the previous target dies
    Hazabel's Reality Rift damage increased by 50%

    Whart's spell descriptions was updated
    Whart's Elder Planetheart redesigned: now spawns mug golems when attack with windfury

    1.3 is out. I was too lazy to write changelog, so check this TL/DR log! :D
    Added new hero
    Created new Multiboard with Damage Per Second Recount
    Added floating damage text
    DOOM-mode now has extra level (11 instead of 10)
    Updated terrain, added decorations
    Many undocumented gameplay and hero changes
    Some optimisation-related changes
    This version was developed for 1.28 warcraft version, but well playable on the last patch. Updated terrain, added some new mechanics such as DPS-meter, added one new hero of course!
    If you like my map, let me know. This would motivate me to create new versions. Feedback is greatly welcome.

    I love it. Amazing heroes, fun gameplay. But please remove mana from them if there are no need for mana to cast spells.

    Yo i just made account just to review this map my friend suggested me. and boi i'd say this is the BEST map i have every played on warcraft so far.

    I played 3 match straight just because i wanted to test every hero. It took me 3h but i enjoyed fully.

    Im really speechless :DD, and since i want this map to be even better here is some of my suggestions.

    Flaws(dont know the correct word ;d) i personally felt
    1. Boss spawning from middle is kinda "hmmmm" to me. Would be nice if they just come from the side lanes.
    2. Same ingot for Common and Legendary items was kinda "egh". So i sugggest maybe Ingot for every Quality items. Goes like 1000 gold for Common, 2000 gold for Uncommon e.t.c
    3.Middle Portal was kinda give me "im not sure why this thing here" even tho i know how it works.
    4.Choosing the Diffuculity from the tavern was kinda confusing when i started my first match.
    Suggestion - Maybe pop up window that asks the difficulty.
    5. Position and Picture of "Give items to your hero" and "Take Item" skills.
    Suggestion - Move them 1 line up.
    6.I kinda used sheep a lot
    7. When i played in Hard mode. I was already capped at 8 level with 4 legendary and 2 artifact. and really felt the item drops were kinda meh. Would be more fun to put some late game stuffs. or maybe could use some tome stores ;d
    8.Maybe need some Easter eggs or Secret weapons.(personal perf)
    8. and ofc the map needs little rework.
    9. Not sure why the name was Kira defender. And the map Picture was kinda odd.
    10. You cant buy more flasks if you dont have free slot. You have to make 1 free space to add more flasks to your current flasks.

    Comments on previous suggestions
    1. Dont limit the skills pls. Unlimited usage of skills without having to worry about mana is half the fun for me.
    2. 5m Timer is fine. Sometimes it took me even more than 5 minute tbh. :)

    And lastly i'd like to address some cool features i saw.
    1. The Q,W,E,R,C Hotkeys. I really like them this way holy shit.
    2. really liked the sheep even tho its normal thing.
    3.Unique Heros and their skills animations. Really gave me the WoW vibe man thanks.
    4.Unlimited mana thats for sure.
    5. Common->Uncommon->Rare->Epic mechanic.
    6. How every hero has unique Legendary and Artifcat
    7.Achievement.

    Overall Really High Quality Map. Thanks for the map. I just really wanted to help the devs.

    Thanks for the feedback! It is a great honor for me to see such reviews, even considering that i didn't release new updates last months. BUT, now i'm slowly working on the new version, which likely will include such cool feature as PVP! And some others too :cool:. Stay in a sight!

    Player in red slot seems to be allied with the attackers for some reason.

    Later in same game, I noticed that the enemy waves must've allied with the Guild Of Defenders, because they no longer targeted the main base or towers anymore, just allied teams heroes.

    Firing the Dark Ranger's Banshee and then entering the pvp zone will cause it to bug out for the rest of the game, only allowing it to return her to the same spot at the Fortress.

    Updated map with 2.0b version; fixed some bugs.
    You need i think 1.29 minimum to play this version. I used a lot new functions, thats why you can't play on 1.26.
    How exactly this happens? Cause i never seen anything like that and have no idea what is the reason for this lol. Could you explain it in more detailed?
    Got fixed.

    I figured it out, it had to do with me hosting the map via Makemehost.com.

    Screenshot_1.png LAN Host lobby

    Screenshot_2.png Makemehost lobby

    Hosted again via ENT, worked as intended.
