Description

Nex Hero Defense



Introduction


... is a Hero Defense map (as you probably noticed already :plol:) that requires
teamwork and some intellect. Hmm... you're probably wondering
- Why should I play your map? and my answer to that is:
because of it's unique Team Style Gameplay which you will
meet while playing. An example is the absence of autorevival system and
the addition of special Resurrecting abilities, which makes players depend one on another.

Combination of Fun & Difficulty is also an interesting aspect
of the map. Funny waves and abilities can be found, but harmonically linked to
a balanced difficulty.

Realistic Equipment, meaning that close-combat
heroes can only use close-combat weapons and only one armor e.t.c.

As the time passes playing, your character changes and gains improved
abilities, the so called Class Change.When you reach a certain level
you choose the class that suits you best and reset back to level one.

If you get bored, that means you've selected the wrong class/skills.
This map is basically a fast-paced Hero Defense that through the
correct selection of skills can be less intense. So You Can Choose
if you want to be jumpy all the time or sit back while your hero
does everything by himself. Of course, skills that require
the player's interaction are more effective than passive ones.

Systems

Hero XP System


XP Rate: ([Number of Players] x 20) + 40
Class 1: [XP Rate]
Class 2: [XP Rate]/ 4
Class 3: [XP Rate]/ 20
I did this system on my own.


Hero Replacement System

If you need details PM me.

Spawn System


I based my system on the Multiple Creep Spawn System tutorial and modified it
into a Simple Creep Spawn System. The tutorial referred here is made by DoOs_101.


Item Customization System


When you buy an item with [Empty Slots] then you can customize your item with Orbs
and add attributes of your likeness. You can also add 2 Orbs (to the items that have at least 2 Empty Slots) of the Same type to get an increased bonus for that attribute.
Got ideas from here and there but I basically did it on my own, seemed much simpler.


Item Drop System


Each Creep that dies gives a 5% chance to drop an item. That item could be one of the following (With priority order Rare to Common):
  • Belt (LVL 2 Armor) [1%]
  • Robe (LVL 1 Armor) [4%]
  • Reincarnation [5%]
  • Lumber [5%]
  • Escape [5%]
  • Greater Potion of Mana [5%]
  • Greater Potion of Health [8%]
  • Antidote [12%]
  • Potion of Mana [15%]
  • Potion of Health [20%]
  • Stone [20%]

Some of these items can also have random Charges, more common means chance for more charges.




Items


Weapons
  • 6 Close-Combat (Swords, Axes, Blades, e.t.c.)
  • 6 Standard Bows (Ranged Weapon, for Archers)
  • 4 Customized Bows of the players' choice
  • 6 Magic (Stafs, Wands, e.t.c.)

Armors
  • 6 Standard Armors
  • 14 Customized Armors of the players' choice

Accessories
  • 5 Accessories (Boots, Medals, e.t.c.)

Misc
  • 4 Kinds of HP recovery Potions
  • 3 Kinds of MP recovery Potions
  • Lumber
  • Antidotes
  • Stones
  • Dad's Soup
  • Escape




Game Tips


Within a team there should be at least one of each starting Class (Warrior, Archer, Mage) for best performance,
but besides that Warrior is the best Class and easiest to play. On the contrary, Mages are pretty hard to play
'cause of their almost none attack damage and "friendly-fire" spells, but all that hard work pays up in the end.

In this map you do NOT revive automatically (with exception the Living Statue's Spell, with 10 minutes cooldown), instead a grave is spawned at the point you died.
That grave points out a hope of resurrection either by a Healer, or by the Living Statue (Base Structure).

I made the map to be easier when playing with more players, so don't be so impatient!

Fairly decent map: I like the upgrading-system, though some classes aren't finished yet.
The summoner seemed strange, since levelling up seriously doesn't matter at all, the terrain isn't good and I couldn't find the potion shop (which seemed necessary for the antidotes).

No comments about the description, apart from "well done!".
The map abides to all rules on the hive, it works in-game and, though not completely finished, it's perfectly playable.

ive tested your map and...
-u dont get your 2nd job at lvl20 but on lvl23-24
- that zombie level somewhat after the first boss(those with low dmg and high armor) are almost invincible D= reduce the armor or at least the hp reg, its extremely frustrating to take that long for 1 zombie...

- No you don't get your second class at level 20, but at level 25. I present the abilities and their use to the player 5 levels earlier so he can choose wisely.

- That "zombie level" is made that it can be easily defeated with magic.
(Not only Wizard's magic! Other skills like "Arrow Rain", "Call For Help!", "Master Copy", "Purify" are also very effective.) Although in the last version (if you check the changelog) I did reduce the armor/HP of two waves.

Any other questions/notices are welcome! :)

i agree with fenrir the zombie lvl is stupid. if it wouldnt have been for the mage person that was able to hurt the ENTIRE WAVE so fast they died in like 2 seconds we would have been at it for a good 20 minutes.....it had already been i think 4-5 minutes and we had killed 2.

Second it pops up sayin your choices for what class you can pick at lvl 20 but you dont get to pick until 20!

I think items are way to expensive for not doing a whole lot. for instance 6k gold for +20 all stats and 15hp/sec regen.......with spartan i had a skill that gave me like 150 str 400 agi and 100 int or w/e it was. and when youve got 45k hp 15hp/sec isnt anything.

Edit
Sry didnt see your post on page 2! and now i feel stupid HAHA!

well then correct the number ingame cause it say s u can choose at level 20!

well the wave is almost impossible(takes fucking long) without a mage...
and it looks like im not the only one who thinks so.

- That's because you can carry only one item of each class (Weapon/Armor/Accessory). Also the gold you loose by selling an item is low, so you can buy the starting items and then sell them for a better one.

well then correct the number ingame cause it say s u can choose at level 20!

- Can you specifically show me where it says that?

- Dude... you replied to yourself before the post, my quote. And in case you didn't see in the parenthesis, not only wizard has spells that are effective for that wave.
(Not only Wizard's magic! Other skills like "Arrow Rain" (Royal Ranger), "Call For Help!" (Knight), "Master Copy" (Fighter), "Purify" (Maiden) are also very effective.)

hey i cant dl this map. Everytime i press dl my browser tries to open the map instead of asking me if i would like to open it or save it :confused:

- That is probably 'cause you unchecked the "Always ask this" button, try looking up your Browser's settings or reseting them.

hm ive checked the map again because i was pretty sure there was a message where it says its lvl 20 but well looks like it was in another map.
im testing several maps atm so this can happen sometimes.my fault.


- Dude... you replied to yourself before the post, my quote. And in case you didn't see in the parenthesis, not only wizard has spells that are effective for that wave.
what i was trying to say is that maybe every class should have at least a spell to take care of those zombies =X a tank for example cant kill even one =O
we had 1 fighter(who died pretty fast...) 1royal archers, 2 arcane archers, 1 maiden who just skilled healing skills and a tank...
well the maiden and me(tank) got a crit error (dunno if it was the map or a bnet specific crit error cause i got no message =( wc3 just closed itself) they told me they took like 10-15 minutes to get rid of them, AFTER the maiden and me got dc...so it was a fight about...20-25mins just because nobody really seems to had an effective spell skilled.
maybe u could write a message ingame where those effective skills are listed, ~3 waves before the zombie wave appears.
just a suggestion

oh and btw: could u make the pot shop more obvious? its kinda hidden cause it has no shop-icon on the minimap(also it would be a good idea to have another pot shop IN the base)

- Tank has the "Weight Slam" Ability that deals enough damage at some level plus 10 seconds stun. Only specific classes can't eliminate that wave by theirselves, That's because the map requires Teamwork and is not made for Solo.

About the message to appear 3 waves before the "Dead Guy" wave, I find that a litle extreme for just one tank wave... I'll look for other options and see. Thank you :) your suggestions/notices/bug reports do affect my plans for the next version.

oh and btw: could u make the pot shop more obvious? its kinda hidden cause it has no shop-icon on the minimap(also it would be a good idea to have another pot shop IN the base)

- Already in my plans for the next version.

i kinda like the pot shop out there becuase its the best choke point for creeps and its ez to just get a potion from 2 feet away instead of OH NO LET ME TAKE 5 MINUTES TO RUN BACK TO BASE AND BACK TO GET A POTION!!!

i do like this game though although i was kinda sad going from defender to spartan...i really liked the defend skill it helps out SO much on bosses. in fact i ALMOST soloed the boss i had him down to half hp b4 the rest of the people on my team got there and i had almost full hp between terrify and defend.

One more thing WTF IS WITH THOSE RIPPERS seriously i used defend(which game me 90% damage reduction in total) and STILL DIED IN 1 HIT. stupid lvl killed my entire group. and it happens more then once.

I would say maybe 3/5 keep improving map and that goes up. maybe at high ground for the archers and mages on side of road. or an area that has fence streched for a bit so they can sit back and be safe while the tanks take the damage!

- Yup! :p I hate that too!

- Yeah, Defender is a very good Plus in the team. Glad you liked the game :)

- That wave can be dealt either with a Cleric/Maiden, or avoided with illusions (Samurai Skill or Pot Shop). Rippers instantly kill you no matter how much HP/Armor you have.

I would say maybe 3/5 keep improving map and that goes up. maybe at high ground for the archers and mages on side of road. or an area that has fence streched for a bit so they can sit back and be safe while the tanks take the damage!

- The things you said already exist! I have fences carefully placed at 3 Defensive spots in the map!

Thanks for taking time to rate & comment! Helps a lot to know the oppinion of my players.

ive tested now some 3rd jobs and uhm...well...
i think some of them need a bit ballancing
the wizard for example:
his movement momentum is like a catapult =O
also he doesnt seem to do much dmg...his ultimate also definately dont do the descripted amount of dmg (lvl 1 says 15k dmg per wave...)
i tried it at creeps with ~10k hp...they dont really got dmg and then, an archer raped them with his arrow rain.
the summoner is also a bit weak imo. his summons get better but veeeery slow...he seems only useful if u have only 1 (or not even one) melee hero to tank with.
oh and...the knight seems to have a BUNCHLOAD more hp reg then the tank, making him a way more useful tank than the..."tank".

- Wizard is a second class hero and I made be cause low damage to make him a hard hero to play, but I guess he does need some balancing.

the summoner is also a bit weak imo. his summons get better but veeeery slow...he seems only useful if u have only 1 (or not even one) melee hero to tank with.

- His summons' bonuses are already increased in the next version, and I am planning on adding more abilities too. Summoner can summon "Beleth" that is the best tank in the game, so what you said about a hero tanking isn't true.

oh and...the knight seems to have a BUNCHLOAD more hp reg then the tank, making him a way more useful tank than the..."tank".

- I guess you didn't play the Knight enough levels, he might have a great HP regeneration but he doesn't have a lot of max HP. After a few levels he is unable to tank without a good Armor. Although I will reduce his HP reg slightly.

Thanks for playing! :)



Announcement:

Looking for testers to play the map with me, credits will be given. For more info pm me.

- Wizard is a second class hero and I made be cause low damage to make him a hard hero to play, but I guess he does need some balancing.
dont forget to fix his movement...hes scandalizing pretty often


- His summons' bonuses are already increased in the next version, and I am planning on adding more abilities too. Summoner can summon "Beleth" that is the best tank in the game, so what you said about a hero tanking isn't true.
u missunderstood me oO
i ment hes usefull as an additional tank (his summons tank of course, not himself) especially if u have only 1(or none) melee hero in the group for tanking

ye its just... a bit confusing
in one game i had a tank with that 15 hp/sec item (that accessoire...cant remember the name) tanking those zombies and my hp was draining down (slowly but steady) while in another game thie knight didnt take any dmg to his huge hp reg =O

- I made Summoner so he could play any role in a team (inculding tanking) and if he isn't needed he can summon gold to improve himself.

- That's because Tank has a skill that blocks high incoming damage, while Knight's regeneration nullifies low incoming damage and the "Dead Guy" wave causes low damage with high attack speed. So that wave I could say is a "Tank" and "Anti-Tank" wave at the same time. :p

:thumbs_up: Good Job :thumbs_up:

Okay heres my review: (+ = good : - = bad)

+Map was very enjoyable and not 1 glitch/exploit/bug to report

+Credits given to all resources

+Awesome replacement system for heros

+Able to play over and over without getting bored

+No trigger leaks not 1 aspect of this game lags

-Still need to add more to the terrain

-Right now all you have are weapons/armors/accessories try to expand and make items take up atleast 5/6 slots

Overall i will give you a 4.5/5 since all that really needs *fixed* is the terrain

- Thanks for the +'s:gg: Very accurate review. Usually when I play my map, I try to be 100% objective and rate my map based on facts.

-Still need to add more to the terrain

- Which part exactly of the terrain do you mean?

-Right now all you have are weapons/armors/accessories try to expand and make items take up atleast 5/6 slots

- Actually I was planning on a Complete Weapon Customization (like with the armor) for each category. Takes a lot of work but it will pay up in interest. By adding more categories I will reduce the empty slots needed for HP/MP Potions and Antidotes. Plus that would be like a rip from an RPG, or noT?

Overall i will give you a 4.5/5 since all that really needs *fixed* is the terrain

- Thanks, but could you add that rating to the map?:con: Rarely anyone rates anymore..

you should do some trigger to set the experience rate
if 1 player then 50% if 2 then 75% if 3 then 100% etc.
but its nice^^
and what about a 4th job?
could be funny
would be hard work but could be funny

- With which Hero? When I played it "Drake" (LEVEL 37) seemed pretty balanced! Can you tell me also the whole team which Heroes did they have? Thank you.

- I Already did that, but I should probably mention it in the Description! Thanks for reminding it!:gg:

- Actually I have other plans, perhaps more interesting, but hard work is also required. If you want more info PM me.
Sorry for answering so late but I didn't get any notification for your post.

Okay by terrain i just meant mainly the undead area and maybe some more doodads so that its not so open.

As for the weapons/armors/etc you need to make some that will give immunity to slow/poison that would be awesome and not very hard to implement.

keep up the good work :thumbs_up:

Excellent map, well done, however is the map finished since there's a lot of trees around the map still? I think some waves have way too much hp, the furblogs, way too hard. Died on the furblog level, with friends, 4 people total including myself. Should add a lot more stuff since the map is less then 2MB!

- You played the last version, right? Only some space left and that looks fine to me. I added mountains and roads (temporarily closed for future use) so it has to be much better.

- About the immunity GREAT IDEA!!! Would give you +Rep but I already did!:thumbs_up:

- Thanks man!:wink:

- Yeah, it's finished, but improving in every version one thing at a time! I currently have no idea what to replace the Forest with... any suggestions?

- The waves I believe are very balanced, Fulborgs never stopped me from winning. Have you read my Game Tips? Another way to achieve victory easier is having more players, 'cause you get +Gold at every wave, +XP (look at: Map Info -> Systems), not to mention the +Damage/ +Resurection/+Heal.

- I am always open to ideas on what to add to my map, although it's already on average size for a Hero Defense.

Well well.

The map's size wasn't that big and the dowload was fast.
The terrain was ''okay'', it could be better but it suited the map fine.
The heroes were really great, i liked that there were lots of heroes, and also the dialog to choose the heroes.
The gameplay was okay too, i haven't much to say about that.
Meh, the items were fine too.
No lag in-game, good.
Loadingscreen? It was great.
Spells were fine.
Bosses were also great.
No typos, very good.

Editin' in a moment.

I shall rate this 4/5 and vote for App- Oh wait it is approved already :p
~45min test.

Awesome new update the messages/info text is really helpful in deciding what you need to go.

Thanks for noticing my great idea ^^

And 1 more suggestion since that back building attacks super slow try making a upgrade which can be purchased to increase it attack speed of course by just a little bit for a large sum of gold

Good luck!

- I also added (In version 1.1b) a message that explains the speciality of the hero you picked.

- I already have an upgrade that increases the attack speed slightly, damage and the hit points. I suggest these upgrades are done before a boss wave. It existed before version 1.0! I wouldn't wanna increase the attack speed too much 'cause it's supposed to be a defensive mechanism for hard times and with attack speed it would become an offesive one.

Thanks for the feedback man!:thumbs_up:

Good point on the upgrade attack speed and the specialty message was what i meant it my other post.

Also i have 1 more suggestion:

Make the little carrier guys upgrade with the heros as in replace them with little version of the heros like how ranger starts with little ranger make upgraded ranger (forgot name...) have a little upgraded ranger.
