An entirely new faction joins the fray!

After an epic battle with Fallen's undead legions, a fatal defeat struck all of the elves. The Battle of Shadowspire was lost, and with Mind Zero acticated, nearly all of the world has now fallen under the dark lich's will...

But not all hope is lost.

A few months before the Battle of Shadowspire, one certain general from amongst the elven factions backed away to create an underground bastion on the farthest side of the planet. He has gathered all of the mightiest and smartest elves, building up a strong revolt against Fallen and his army of the dead. Some surviving humans and dwarves have also joined the ranks of the Revolt as well. By putting their technology and sorcery to the extreme, they have managed to resist Mind Zero.

Now, after decades of hiding and preparing, they are ready to avenge Shadowspire at all costs. They will not rest until Fallen and Mind Zero are put to an end, once and for all.​

Really enjoyed this contest entry. Good work you two! Approved!
Managed to beat a 3v1 Last Revolt game in both Normal and Insane. I'll try to upload it once I can. The Insane one is pretty tricky though, so it would be a long recording or a series of them. Never thought with a race designed to "tank" and "push" I have to execute a rush to win.

Patch 1.32 is used, though apparently this map still uses the patch 1.07 balance. There are also some issues such as Cherrybomber's Ultimate, Bounty Hunter, and Sunshield are bugged, glitchy animation for towers from Architect ability, and also the Chromium Blast SFX. These already pointed in the contest, but a QoL update would be in order now that I find these are quite the hindrance. Some tooltips in the caster section still refers to old spells before the final contest entry version.
