Mathog's Arena v1.7a

Submitted by Inferno11114
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
USE WARCRAFT III PATCH 1.29 IF POSSIBLE, DO NOT USE 1.30!!! I am finding issues when playing in the newest patch.

I accidentally erased the changelog... Luckily I have all the changelog notes saved in the map file so I may or may not reupload all the previous changelogs in the future.

    The mirror images should not be triggering those things, so I will fix that. I understand where you're coming from on a lot of these points and agree to an extent on some of them.

    1. Yes, typically you'll finish your essential items before you get towards the end, but that doesn't necessarily mean 'tome up' is the way to go. There's no way you will have 6 tier 3 items in your inventory through a regular playthrough without feeding gold to one hero, so going 3-4 tier 3 items and a couple 'accessory' items with beneficial effects is a possibility. I left tomes in just in case someone doesn't know what to buy, or doesn't have enough gold for anything else at end game, full inventory, etc. Tome prices change quite often in updates as I'm trying to find the right balance of making them situationally good purchases, but not just 'spam tomes and win'. Tomes of Agility are increased from 250 to 300 gold in the upcoming version.

    2. The game goes by faster the more times you play. You could definitely get through a full playthrough (excluding the bonus boss challenges) in an hour. Memorizing recipes, knowing the shops, and knowing what item build you want will speed things up quite a bit, as well as make you more efficient in killing waves.

    3. I think custom hero survival is a great map, and I love watching Azo and WTii play it. It's definitely a game you can replay a few times in one night. It just worked out this way with Mathog's Arena, that it takes a bit longer. It's not necessarily meant to be a crazy popular battle.net map. It's only a two player map, and is more suited to playing LAN or online with a friend. I feel you, I don't really want to replay it after beating it... So just wait a couple days or a week and then give it another go :)

    4. About the slow build up, yes it's a little slow at first. I would argue that CHS is the same way though. For most of the Heroes anyway, many of the creep waves especially early on are incredibly easy and it's just a matter of efficiency. Of course CHS has the duels which is really the whole point and adds a lot to replayability and entertainment value. If you want it to be more difficult, put it on the max difficulty setting, and kill those easy early waves as efficiently as possible since you are on a time limit. Even so, I will consider making some of those early waves a little tougher so they aren't a walk in the park.

    5. I actually think it would be a great idea to have a shortened version of 25 waves. I wouldn't want to change the current version of the game since I've spent years working on it the way it is and the number of waves affects a lot of balancing things (like you said it, would not be easy to do). I've wanted to make different 'modes' with different amount of waves and other things like that, it would just take a long time to implement that. Maybe some day...

    6. One more thing about the slow income at start. It is something that I am constantly balancing (the rate of income across all levels) and I would like to increase the gold reward on those early waves a bit, but this is actually really tough to balance. If people get more gold sooner, then they get more items sooner, and the subsequent waves get too easy, then I have to make those enemies tougher... and so on. Only thing I can recommend is (if you haven't already) increase the difficulty level. You get bonus gold after every wave on any level above normal, and the higher the difficulty, the greater the gold bonus.

    All of your feedback was excellent and I will do my best to use it and improve the map! :D


    EDIT: Just as a general update, I have been working on the map consistently since the last release. I got a little carried away with new stuff, so expect A LOT in this next update. 1.7 has by far the biggest changelog of any version thus far, and it's still growing. Stay tuned...

    I made a mistake when optimizing the map, didn't run the optimizer as an administrator. I fixed it and tested it on the newest patch and it works. I just uploaded the map again, so redownload and give it a shot!


    ATTENTION: This goes to anyone that downloaded 1.7 and it isn't working; please download the newest version I just uploaded!

    1.7's finally out, I'll give it a shot right away. Glad you've reworked Dethog, the old Gladiator deserved some attention given his previous state :D

    Hi,

    first of all, love your game. My friend and I are having a blast playing it!

    Though when we are going to try to unlock the secret warlock challenge, it seems that we could not create the warlock staff. Tried molten and arcane ring but did not work....

    Hey guys, been gone for a while. I probably messed up a condition in the trigger for creating the Warlock Staff. I will check that out and release an updated version. Dread stalker, I'm not entirely sure what would be causing your game to crash, I'm sorry :/ If you find out that a specific situation causes your game to crash every time, let me know.

    Edit: Version 1.7a uploaded, Warlock Staff can now properly be created. I am currently still on hiatus from actively working on the map, but I expect to begin working on it again pretty soon. My overall plan is to work on Mathog's Arena even after the release of Warcraft 3 Reforged and make sure it runs smoothly on that, and take it all the way to v2.0, and thereafter only making minor fixed and updates. A big thank you to everyone who enjoys the map, you guys are a big reason I keep working on this after so many years!

    The game says press ESCAPE to teleport in the arena and begin fighting. But when I pressed the escape key nothing happened.

    I made that mistake at first too. If you play alone you need to make sure you select two heroes before trying to press ESCAPE. Worked for me at least. Other than that i'd like say that i played this map for the first time today and i'm very impressed. It's lots of fun, well made and very addicting :p Did a legendary run as my first attempt and now i'm gonna go for round 2 with the gladiator dude i unlocked. He seems really cool :D Certainly one of the best maps i've ever played. Well done!

    Well guys, looks like we're in a bit of a bind... Running into some pretty nasty issues running the map in the latest patch. I would recommend using a 1.29 patch if possible. In patch 1.30, killing enemies with spell damage is not granting gold or experience. I believe it's an issue with between the damage detection system I use and the newest patch. It would be a lot of work to switch to a new damage detection system without knowing if the new one would even fix the issue. I am worried other issues like this will pop up. Most likely going on hiatus until Reforged is released, at which point I will make any changes necessary to make sure Mathog's Arena runs smoothly in the glorious HD of Warcraft III Reforged.

    Reforged kinda seems like its gonna be terrible, with wierd graphics, retcons becase of goddamn WOW and break a bunch of customs. Also just dropping by to again say thanks for the Underrated, excellent map, and that me and a friend finally beat Champion Mode, can't remember what Comp we did, though I'm sure it involved Alchemist cause he's an absolute LAD.
