Editors Note

This map has a new official thread at here

The map will load MUCH MUCH FASTER now! Compressed the map with widgetzer too and now it loads even faster than before + 0.4kb less.

The hero revival system is totally remade. Now it is pure vJASS and runs on a single timer for each hero. Also the time displaying is now locally for each player meaning that each player will only have their own revival time and not others due to complains about spam when lots of heroes die at the same time. Also illusion master will spawn very very few illusions now and not mass them as previous. It was meant to mass the illusions as it is -illusion- master. But due to complains I've fixed that too.

I've added a text generator. Basic it works like this, a hero takes or deals damage, a floating text shows up either red color for taking damage and blueish for dealing. Works for illusion masters illusions too!

Yes now I'm in charge of this map, I took it over from CHA_Owner now so credit to him for keeping it up. For this new versions in the 3 series (and 4) there will usally be lots of performance upgrades and not so much focusing on the heroes. Of couse balance is a must but for the first version I haven't added any new hero but you can expect it in the future!

Also I've protected the map for many reasons but mostly for optimization purposes and gameplay increasing. If you want to know something "how did you do that" or "what is that" I will gladly respond to your questions.

Enjoy the new version of the map and happy gameplay!

Well, considering that It's your first map, i'll give you a 4/5. BUT the foes are waay too weak. With just one mighty strike, i killed 16 skeletons. Yes i do know that you made them weak just to give the player a feeling of power ingame, but could cost you your reputation. Anyway it's well done, i like the map, especially the triggers ( omg i hate them, they're hard for me) :> AND it's better than mine. Great, keep it up!:wink:

Sure it is.. using the the old "its not a bug its a feature" mantra. In response to sharpshooter.. why is that if you do something slightly different from dota people say it is somehow wrong. The HP of the creeps simply means that game is NOT about farming, but actual hero interaction. What is wrong with killing 16 skeletons in one go? Every hero can do it! Thats why I spawn 24 every 12 seconds.

Aesthetics' Review

Pros
[+] lots of masters
[+] great items
[+] smexy spells
Neutral
[?] creep are waaay too easy to slaughter
[?] gold takes really long to farm unless you kill lots of heroes
Cons
[-] I say some masters need more balancing such as (excuse my improper names)
List of Masters
Healing Master
Knockback Master
Etc (really, just play through all of them and really see who and who isn't imba)
Rating: 4/5
Approval. :thumbs_up:


Final Notes: Considering this is your first map, you own. Nice work!

i played this game and i loved it xD its kewl cuz it replaces dota its faster and more fun, yet u could do, make different hero taverns for teams.That would make game a bit different.

Vampire master is SO OVERPOWERED hes the most powerful char in game cuz hes vampiric aura stacks with mask of death and other items that give hp steal, once i soloed against 3 players with this dude and it was flawless. They left after all had 20+ death and 2+kills.

played with most of the chars, like them all, except shadow master, its fucken hard, make at least blink bigger, i can blink over the castle.

getting the sword of apocalipse is very very very hard, the best gold score at the end of game was ~15k so u should reduce the price of it to 10k i guess and make that guardian stronger cuz vamp master kills him to fast xD

what about improving AI just that they would buy items after they buy boots of speed and ring, that would improve game a bit more.

I'll continue checking the game for bugs or OVERPOWERED chars.

Rate 3.7/5

I like the idea, but I'll give 3/5 because it lags heavily...
And I think that power of creeps is ok in the beggining,but they should grow more stronger with time that they do now...It isn't even noticable that they become stronger :p =)

As I am in the planning stage of my next project I am going to let this die over the next couple of weeks. I will release a final version sometime soon. The reason I am abandoning this is twofold. First I am simply not very interested in playing it. Second is that I wrote a lot of the coed for this before I really new very much about world edit, thus the lag that lexx referred too. After the final release I will probably make this open source... that is I will give anyone permission to use this map as they see fit, and release any new versions, with the proviso that I am credited.

I think you shouldn't give up this project=)
It'll be much better if you just optimize your code,because the gameplay is really interesting=)

I am moving on to better things. I would really like to redo all the code with hashtables but at this stage I'd rather start afresh.
You don't NEED to use hashtables=)
For example I didn't use them,and my map now works on both 1.23 and 1.24 (including 1.24b):grin:
You just need to make codes as lagless as you can,and that's all:wink:

And a small advice:
In your map when you choose a hero,it appears near the tavern.
It'll be much better if you make them appear near the main building=)

I know you don't need them... They would make a a lot of implementations simpler though. And I don't really want your backhanded advice, I got into the top 10 by doing things that other people don't do.
It's just looks terrible when heroes appear near the tavern=)
But it's my opinion=)

I will now be continuing the map and taking over for jabberwocky of course he will get full credit and i will post the map seperate from this.

:thumbs_up:

p.s. expect version 2.6 to be released in about a month :)
Well,good luck=)

Okay, I tested your map. It's quite funny, but, generally speaking,
I don't see any diffirence to any other AoS map or any other DotA-clone.
You said that your map is diffirent to DotA, though it's quite the same.
There are towers, you have to destroy the base, you choose a hero,
you buy some items. And the spells aren't terrible, neither. I am sorry
to say such things, but your map has a lot of potentiel you can exlpoit!
Why don't you put some special features in, like an altar that must be overtaken
or something like that. Do you know "AoS Sunken Ruins"? This is a good AoS
with some new features. Anyway, keep up the good work ;) :thumbs_up:

Thanks for testing the map ! :)

1.
I just took the text from the previous authors of this map ;) but the thing about this map is that it got more speed then other AoS featured maps

2.
You haven't felt my triggering skills yet, just wait and see (A)

3.
Check 2s A.

4.
No I don't ;)

EDIT:

Updated!

So you only optimized the code of the map?

In fact no one has added any extra content to this since I made it open source :p However as may first map it was inefficient and leaky but at that stage but everything worked. Even the problematic Time Master, which CHA_Owner appears to have broken. Baassee is at least moving in the right direction.

A couple of points baassee, firstly repick now doesn't work, and secondly the terrain builablity has to be symmetrical so that the Engineering Master is balanced.

hmm looks good here is my review:

:thumbs_up:AI works (somehow...should be improved)
:thumbs_up:Nice spells and good hero concepts
:thumbs_up:Blalance is good
:thumbs_up:Fun to play
:thumbs_up:Quite alot good items, which are perfectly giving you a chance making your own strategy
:thumbs_up:You give credits

:con:terrain is not that good
:con:You have to kill heros to get gold, creeps jsut give to less. If you lose 2-3 fights in the earlygame you already lost-thats toooo fast.

:)thumbs_down: map is protected-does not count cause you say it in describ)

Overall i rate 4/5 so that you finish the AI and maybe some balancing(espacialty on the gold get for creepkills-its nothing for now)
I really dont understand wy you only have 320 downloads :sad:

I think this Aos is quite unique for being a really fast game.

I have no idea how to improve the terrain really

Hmm should make a balance system for gold or something, good idea

I will check on the riding master when I get back, sine no one ever complained about it I didn't know this, he might get dísabled for next version but I'm not on my computer right now so can't do anything.

Also just for just updating this

One new hero will replace the Time Master for a while atm, since I had a hard time to fix it, I thought to give me myself some more time by adding a new hero instead.

Might be two new heroes if I don't fix the riding masters ability.

Thank you for your review :)

Time Master? i cant find him.
Maybe you make a secret tavern with bugged heros, so some people still could test them:grin:

In the version 3.0 changelog

-Time Master is currently disabled due the bug spree it caused, will be remaked for further versions.

that's why you can't find him ;)

ehum there will be 3 taverns yes but not with bugged heroes, but for the moment there will just be two taverns
