MMRST 1.66
By Ljusdahl

A simplistic map inspired by mini-games, hero co-ops, and Pac-Man.

You start as a group of defenseless peasants(Runners) in a randomly generated maze.
There are 20 levels, whereas every 5'th is a Boss.
The main objective is to avoid the hostile mobs and press 5 switches to progress to the next level, but the Boss levels have different objectives.
The map alternates between 4 tilesets, and some are spooky night levels with limited vision.
Buy items between levels to give your Runner abilities.

My Discord server

Ability cooldowns now reset at the start of every level.
Less delay for players to revive after a level.
Normalized the damage of most mobs(less randomness).

Boss 1: Tower splash reduced. Slow removed.
Boss 2: Decreased sleeping time to 8-10 seconds(from 9-12).
Boss 2: Killing a Runner doesn't reset Mana or "Fatigue Booster" value.
Boss 3: Placed explosve barrels belong to Neutral.

Boss units now have a custom minimap icon.

Level 14: Added some space over the upper switches.

Pressing Esc during a cinematic now doesn't skip it for other players.

Set time between levels to 33(from 30).

Improved some item descriptions.

If all players die on a non-boss level, your team revives on that level.
However, everytime this happens the final boss grows stronger.

Runners: Attribute levels can't be skilled consecutively, must be staggered(like Hero skills in melee)
Runners: At the start of levels, your Runner is automatically selected for you.

Shops: 3 minimap icons are displayed instead of 1.
Shops: Special effect on each shop when it sells an item.

The cinematic intros are now properly unskippable!
I thought I improved it in the previous version, but I actually broke it instead.

The multiboard now shows dead/alive status.

Added a "-kick <color>" command for player 1.
Added a "-blink" command that makes your Diamond of Escape have unlimited cast range.

If last player alive disconnects, it should now trigger a team respawn.

Runners don't flee when taking damage.

Fixed a bug where a certain aspect of Boss 4 would become easier from team revives instead of harder.
Fixed an oopsie with the -kick command where the players' units would remain and cause issues.

XP: Changed how Runners gain experience.
Old system: 20xp per corner button. For Runners that survive a level, "20*P/R" (P=players, R=number of surviving Runners)
New System: 10xp per corner button. For Runners that survive a level, 30xp, else 20xp.
I found that the old system was simply too punishing against struggling players, while over-rewarding good players.

Boss 2 & 3: New, smaller maze.

Boss 4: Overall increase in difficulty. Updated the intro and 'Level info' ability tooltip.

Level 12: Changed how sappers work. They used to have a negative Life Steal(caused them to die when attacking, but it didn't work against illusions)
Now, they are killed whenever they start an attack(should not deal auto-attack damage before blowing up).

Items: Changed some tooltips to show their effectiveness versus Resistant Skin.

Summons and illusions no longer remain after the team is dead.

MMRST 1.66 (Map)

Haha, a multiplayer type of Pac-man map! More of a mini-game though. Quite fun. You should make an option to skip the intro. Make a way to put the camera back up if you reset it to the game's. Actually, it would be best to restart the round all died...

Quite fun.

  1. You should make an option to skip the intro.
  2. Make a way to put the camera back up if you reset it to the game's. Actually, it would be best to restart the round all died at because some stages are quite difficult especially if you don't have any idea what to do.
  3. Funny thing is that they don't attack the boxes so you can lock yourself in a dead end and I don't think it's quite fair. Actually, they do but not all the time.
  4. Avoid playing music as sounds.
  5. Playing against the mur'guls is kind of random. You can't see them from a distance and they might surround you easily because of that right from the start. You need the Blink item before this round, or the one with Wind Walk.
  6. Takes a million years to destroy those towers.
  7. How many levels do abilities have? The description should say.
  8. I think the projectile of the warlocks should come slower.
  9. There's no way you can dodge Chain Lightning unless you have some item against spells and I doubt everyone's going to have the same items.

Maybe you could make a restart/reset option after all die.

How to Add a Screenshot to your Map Description

  • 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.

Thanks for your review!

1. Yep, I plan to do that once other things are in order.
2. There's a "-cam" command, but I've forgotten to "advertise" it anywhere.
3. Some mobs can't, others prefer to walk around if they can, because they prioritize the Runners higher. If their detour is small, it works reliably.
4. Oki doki.
5. Hmm, I never use Blink, I just go carefully. I think the randomness really adds to the feeling of fear.
6. You're not supposed to destroy them!
7. 20 levels, so you'll never max out. I might set a smaller limit.
8. Maybe. I'll keep an eye on it.
9. You can pad your survivability with Strength, spell damage reduction, mana shield, spell shielding, spirit link, or mirror images.

A restart function is planned too, it will just be tedious to make.

Hi Ljusdahl,how do you going these days?I am from China,and being a video maker.A few days ago.I played the maps.So many fans like it.But they most can't understand English.In fact WarcraftIII Maps in HIVE,normal Chinese player have no way to play.Because in our courtry Blizzard make a deal with a game platform.Players can only play the maps in the platform.But the platform's maps are a little terrible.They have too high pings to download maps in HIVE,sure can't understand English too.Now I have an idea and share it with my friends,another video maker.We want to translate the maps int o Chinese in Hive and upload it in the platform to improve the RPG maps quality in China.Sure we once remind the maps you made,because it is so good.If you allow us do the things,we can make a deal as well..At last the maps in China platform may make the maps maker earn a little money.If the maps get some profit,you will get the most of the money.My friend and me are looking forward your answer
