[​IMG]

Greetings, fellow Hiveworkers. I'm a big fan of Warcraft III, and especially the MOBA genre that was popularized by the famous map "Defense of the Ancients". I want to represent you my idea of a strictly Warcraft AoS. Legends of Warcraft: The Shadow of Doom is a MOBA map with an element of Siege, designed for a 5v5 team battle. The map has been fully customized and it adapts ideas from similar games such as "Heroes of the Storm", "League of Legends", "World of Warcraft" and even the Melee maps.


Short Story


"The greatest battle in the history of Azeroth between the two major forces, The Horde and The Alliance is at hand. But they are soon to discover, that the shadow of great evil is upon them. The noxious Old God, N’zoth has resurfaced from the depths of the ocean, to scar the land and devour the very essence of the earth. To make events even worse, in the meantime the malefic Burning Legion has found a way to open their otherworldly portals of never-ending demonic armies, all in the name of vanquishing the mortal races of Azeroth."

Gameplay



You have the standard 3 lane map, where the Upper and Bottom lanes are blocked by 2 Computers, that siege mirrorly the two teams with a variety of nefarious creatures ranging from bloodthirsty fel orcs, to faceless abominations and deadly leaders. You play on one of the two teams mentioned above,
The Horde and The Alliance, where both of them strive to drive back these invaders and claim their secrets while fighting each other. Both teams have their respective heroes, and each of them is powerful in his own way. The heroes fall under one of the 5 Classes, and to achieve this diversity, every class has his unique traits and uses different Damage and Armor types. There are only 11 heroes at launch, but I have concepts and ideas for more than 50 characters, that I plan to release in the future.
  • Champion - Warrior type class. Tough melee pusher.
  • Assassin - Rogue type class. Swift and deadly killer.
  • Spellbinder - Mage type class. Supportive healer and powerful wizard.
  • Enforcer - Jungler type class. Indirect pusher and skirmisher.
  • Technician - Marksman type class. Expert at structures.

Mode Setup


The game setup must be made within 15 seconds of game time, from the player in slot 1, and it's done with a simple 2-3 clicks of dialog boxes. First you chose a "Game Mode" from 4 options, as shown bellow:




    • The Shadow of Doom - Your team plays versus both computers and must hold 2 lanes (TOP,BOT) from being destroyed.
    • The Burning Legion - Your team plays versus one computer and must hold Upper lane (TOP) from being destroyed.
    • The Old God - Your team plays versus one computer and must hold Bottom lane (BOT) from being destroyed.
    • Battleground - Both computers are removed, leaving TOP and BOT lanes open, making this mode a PvP battle for dominance between the two teams, rather than a fight for survival.
Depending on the selected Game Mode, you are given an option to set the Difficulty for the computers. There are 3 difficulties; Easy, Normal and Insane, that regulate the handicaps for the computers.



    • Easy - 50% Handicap.
    • Normal - 75% Handicap.
    • Insane - 100% Handicap.
And last but not least important, you are given the option to chose a "Pick Mode". This option decides in what way will the players chose a hero. There are 4 pick modes so far.



    • All Pick - Players can chose from both their circles of power and those of the enemy team.
    • All Random - All players are given a random hero from all the heroes.
    • Normal Pick - Players can chose only from their circles of power.
    • Reverse Pick - The circles of power of both teams swap places, giving both teams the option to chose only from the opposite teams' heroes.

Systems, Mechanics and Interactions


The damage calculation table, has been completely modified, together with visual interface such as Stats, Damage and Armor types. For a more realistic gameplay, things such as axe wielding heroes dealing magic damage and attacking air units have been kept at minimum. The doodads, destructibles and structures have been made slightly bigger, and the terrain contains alot of tiles and passages for a more aesthetic effect. The second currency - Lumber, has been used as well under the name Salvage Points. It's obtained mainly from looting perishable items, that drop on the ground when last hitting Towers and certain minions. These points are used to train your teams' minions and bolster your towers defence and offence. The item requirments system uses "Team Level", to unlock stronger quality items by arithmetic mean. There is also an Item restriction system, that does not allow you to pick up more than one of the same armor/weapon item type. There are also Way Gates and Moon Wells that serve as an advantage for the players.

11.Fandral: Wolf Form has Maim [E] instead of Howl and it deals single target damage + Armor and Swiftness reduction. Moonkin Form's Starshards now Silence the target instead of reducing it's Armor. Bear Form has Demoralizing Roar, which reduced nearby enemies Damage instead of Swipe.

Postscript

I want to mention that the map is ment to be played 5v5, and it has never been tested yet! Your feedback is greatly appreciated, so I can fix bugs, make balance changes, adjust settings, add new features and content. Also, if you have any good ideas and think you can help me improve the map, let me know in the comments bellow! The map is writen in GUI, and alot of things aren't MUI. AI is not implemeted, but I might start working on it in the future. You can also check the site I made for the map by clicking the Logo at the start of the thread. It's still under construction, but you can read some additional information there to get a better understanding of the project. You can find me and join my server in Discord here: Discord - Free voice and text chat for gamers
...Have fun playing.

-Regards, King Valdezar.

    Key Concept
    AoS - My favorite type of map. I like the loading screen, fits the theme of this AoS. An update log, can be described in the loading screen each time you release a new update. Just a suggestion. Description of the bundle is fine and looks good. Multiple pieces of information are in the Quests Menu, good thing. I like the chosen factions for the combat. The shops are placed well and there is also a text that describes each for what it sells. Also, there are some shops that require higher level to access, really interesting. :)
    [​IMG]
    Gameplay
    I picked Ner'Zhul from the horde side. While he may look like a supportive hero, his physical damage is really fine. I like the totem spell, really cool. His spell that rises that skeleton creep could be improved. He is kinda weak against the enemy creeps. Try adding more armor or health or damage to it. Towers that are destroyed leave power-ups that can be picked to get more lumber or gold, cool idea. I love how to modified all attack types, the attributes are modified too but they do not grant new things. Next, I played on the Old God gameplay mode with Grom Hellscream. Was really fun. Although I suggest you make their faction attack the horde and the alliance after 1-2 minutes not right when the battle starts. Their creatures are really powerful. Next, I played the Shadow of Doom gameplay mode with Rexxar. In this mode both the Burning Legion and the faceless one faction appear, top and bottom lanes only. It's great how the gameplay can be modified with the modes. Thumbs up for that. All faction's creeps can be improved in both physical and magical capabilities from their spawning zone. Really good. :D
    [​IMG]
    Terrain & Aesthetics
    Although it may look chaotic, the terrain actually has a unique design. I like how the bases are designed. Some trees could have a lower scaling value though, they kinda block vision sometimes. :)
    [​IMG]
    Wizardry
    Pretty basic but well chosen spells for each hero I played. You can add some new ones though. For example, Grom's spin animation can be used in a lot of ways for a cool spell instead of giving him the old Bladestorm ability. Rexxar with Misha as well. Think about his axes for example, you can make a spell that throws them both in the targeted point, dealing damage to what they cut and destroying trees as well. Just some suggestions.
    [​IMG]
    Final Suggestions
    Lower a bit the damage and stats from the Burning Legion army and the one from the Old God. Nerf the terrain environment and doodads I mentioned above. Add more heroes. I saw that the Horde faction doesn't have any hero in the Spellbinding Circle. The battle is fast paced, maybe too fast paced. I suggest you lower a bit the movement speed of the creeps. Other than that, the map is really fun to play and you get a 4/5 from me and vote for approval! :D

    The cinematic is nice to look at but the dialogue is made of random unit quotes which isn't captivating at all. It's not funny either.
    Ambush them? They were in plain sight with tents and an ignited campfire...
    "It looks as if they are held hostage." On their mounts?
    The night elves (Maiev) know of the Twilight Hammer? Gul'dan's clan was Stormreaver...
    All heroes alive?
    The humans confronting the orcs are red in the transmissions.
    They turned Grom back in a snap?
    Nice effects but cameras are mostly bird's view.

    1. Some heroes don't have hero glow. You can add it: How to add Hero Glow without Modeling
    2. Some circles of power don't have any heroes?
    3. Towers are a bit too close to each other.
    4. Some buildings like the Voodoo Lounge are in the way (on the path/road) and might create hero vs hero problems especially when there are minions there too.
    5. Spell spree with the items of the first mode.
    6. No scoreboard/multiboard? Most if not all current AoSs have that: All About Multiboards
    7. Some spells are just merely edited Warcraft III ones.
    8. Burning Blade's icon should look passive not disabled. Choose the proper one in the editor. Also, for other icons you could make them the way you need with this: Button Manager v1.8.2
    9. Could put more explanations in the Quest Log about the game modes and stuff.

    At first glance it's quite overwhelming with so many upgrades and item shops placed here and there but it seems to be organized in a way.
    Generally it's a nifty AoS but could use more polish and implementations and less eye-candy.

    Approved.

    ADDITIONAL NECESSARY INFORMATION
    • A credits list in the map thread description 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 too.
    • A detailed changelog in the first post would be helpful to reviewers and notify fans about the newest implementations to your map.
    • Map thread tags are important. Please use those that fit and not more or none.

    What I meant by this is that your ally and the enemies (those in between the horde and alliance) are.

    @King Valdezar please write a changelog so people would know what you update/change.

    Tested with you again and alone as well. While the map does not have a big amount of heroes it has a lot of unique things that I really have to mention.

    *damage types varying and able to be used in various combinations with the right items.
    *the cool modes with the Old God and Burning Legion factions
    *heroes are heavily based on interesting abilities from their original lore. Malfurion for example. Really love that hero.
    *while the items might look confusing...they are not. All you have to do is read. Read. Read.
    *all faction units and structures can be upgraded.
    *PvP is really interesting. The correct items can turn up the battle. Akama seemed weak at first but when I've got the specific item...I could kill you.
    *The environment and the features from it can be used to trick your foe.

    This AoS has a lot of great potential and I really do not see why I did not rate it 5/5. Done now. Keep working. I really wanna see the new updates :D

    Hello I played your map and here is my review;

    -So many starting items not good I think.
    -So many item shops. It very confusing for newbie. You need to add Guide
    -Mid lane better for leveling cuz other lanes are hard at begining
    -Mid lane towers invulrable Minions going to die. It's pointless I think
    -Terrain looks empty you need fill them with using some doodads trees etc.
    -Towers attack heroes instantly.
    -Heroes builded well but many heroes have out-class abilities. Varian have paladin spell divine storm. It kills class fantasies
    +Spells based on stats very good. Your hero spells not become useless on end game
    -Some hero builds force players to go neutral lanes. For example: Illdan needs to kill neutral leaders etc.
    -Naga and Demon forces movement speed to high. Sometimes you cant escape from them
    +I love idea upgrading your base by using salvage points. Its very unique.

    -AI dont have any movement. They just purchase hero.
    -Alliance southern lane attacks neutral creeps when sun rises.

    -I try to wear Another class item it drops instantly and not refund price.
    Salvage drops only hero kills. You can add bounty system to give salvage instant to hero.

    Overall its enjoyable. You designed classes very well. Suggestions: Improve terrain, Decrease tree sizes, Make guide for items or make vendor for main items, Decrease neutral creep stats on begining. I bought many stat books at the begining cuz My team level not enough to buy some items. You can add basic AI to push lane etc. Add optional quest for midlane.

    I rated your 4/5 cuz I saw potential on map. You can improve it better.
