Lore Summary

With the death of Theseus Glacus and the fall of Ironstead, the last true bastion of humanity on the mainland has finally fallen. The undead have defeated humanity, warped their dead, and taken their homeland. The once shining empire of Telebram, the pinnacle of human civilization, is now a festering graveyard.

However, hope still remains for the estranged refugees that fled with Chrigis to the islands of Jeb’thol. Months have gone by, towns have sprung up, and the undead have seemingly been landlocked on the mainland. But peace and prosperity are a fleeting sensation for the beleaguered survivors of the plague.

It started with rumors of shadows dancing around in the night on the outlying islands; tales from deep sea fishermen of decrepit, horrifying masses of flesh floating on top of the ocean, stories of makeshift boats manned by creatures beyond life.

These tales were all taken as farce, initially. But eventually the lies became truth. The survivors became comfortable, they thought themselves safe. They were wrong. Outlying towns became overrun with the undead, trade routes were disrupted, and terror was sewn throughout the network of refugees. Villagers began to realize that the apocalypse was at hand; that all hope was lost.

But Chrigis and the Border Guard remained steadfast. Now was not the time for tales of the end, now was the time to stay level headed and fight for survival. Walls and defensive fortifications were constructed around the port city of Lyon, the closest city to a capital among the refugees. Wave upon wave of decrepit, lifeless undead broke against the walls, the now veteran men who were defending seemingly dispatching the assailants with ease. For a time, it looked like Humanity was beginning to win.

But a damning realization came to Chrigis one evening. The mindless undead which constantly barraged the walls were a far cry from the cunning beasts who sieged Galenfar in the west and the Border Guard trade city of Stradford. These drones were not the full force of the undead, but the vanguard of an invading armada.

Gameplay Summary


Essentially, the object of the game is to eliminate the opposing team, not unlike WC3 melee. Each player takes to a goldmine, constructs buildings, and trains soldiers to fight against the other team.

There are aspects which make things a bit more interesting, however. Each human player has a choice of 3 unique races, each boasting their own playstyle and units. You have the Palonians, which focuses on ranged units, mages, and spells, the Border Guard, which focuses on strong melee units and healing, and the Human Alliance, which focuses on versatility.

The Undead also have two races. You have intelligent undead, which focuses on micro management and a more defensive playstyle versus aggressive undead, which focuses on mass and fast expansion and sheer brute force.

All in all The Plague 2 : Infected Isles is a fairly unique experience which can be played anywhere from a casual to a competitive level.


Races


Human Alliance


The human alliance is not one single nation, but a combination of the two once great empires of Telebram and Varenhil.

[​IMG]




The Palonians


The nation of Palonia has always remained elusive to the humans of the world. Everything from the nature of their culture to the magic they use has baffled or downright inspired fear in humanity.

[​IMG]



The Border Guard


The Border Guard are the famed defenders of humanity. The ranks of this faction are filled to the brim with veterans of not only the Plague, but of the wars before that as well.

[​IMG]



Aggressive Undead


Infect. Consume. Expand. Evolve. Infect. Consume. Expand. Evolve. Infect. Consume. Expand. Evolve. Infect. Consume. Expand. Evolve. Infect. Consume. Expand. Evolve.

Intelligent Undead


The intelligent undead are unique in that they retain their personalities and memories from life. They work off of their own intuition rather than instinct.

===========Unit Changes========

-Aggressive Undead-

Aggressive undead has a very powerful early game, yet their late and mid game always felt lacking. With these changes, Aggressive undead will have more variety and punch in the mid game, and they will be slightly slower in the early game.

=======================================================
-Increased the damage of the Acid Sprayer to 110 from 83
-Decreased the movement speed of the Acid Sprayer to 240 from 270
-Increased the damage of the Undead Marauder to 265 from 245
-Increased the Health of the Experiment to 2100 from 1950
-increased the hit point regen on the experiment to 2 from .5


-Increased the build speed of the Fleshworks to 40 seconds from 30 seconds.
-Increased the build time of the zombie to 6 seconds from 4 seconds

-Intelligent Undead -

Intelligent undead, like aggressive undead, had a bit too fast of an early game, yet their mid game lacked punch. With these changes, Intelligent Undead will have a bit more mid game strength and less early game dominance

============================================
-Increase the build speed of the Reanimation Hall to 40 seconds from 30 seconds
-Increased the build time of the Undead Warrior to 10 seconds from 8 seconds

-Increased the damage of the Cultist to 76 from 42

============STAT CHANGES=================

Agility was overall way too powerful as a defensive stat. Although this will nerf all heroes a little, it will primarily effect high agility heroes such as shamis and the night stalker.
=========================================

-Agility now gives .1 armor per point from .3

============HERO CHANGES=================
- Shamis -

Shamis was borderline unkillable with his stim and high agility, and his 6 second stun let him get the jump on any hero and almost guarantee a kill. Statistically, he'll have a lot more early game sustain and mana, but ultimately he will suffer a lot from this patch, much to the happiness of undead players I'm sure.

=======================================================
-Shamis now starts with 25 agility from 30
-Shamis now starts with 15 intelligence from 10
-Shamis now gets 7 agility per level from 9
-Shamis now gets 4 intelligence per level from 2

-reduced adrenaline rush speed to 50/60/70/80 from 50/75/100/125
-increased the cooldown of adrenaline rush to 60 from 30
-Reduced the duration of Assasins blade on heroes to 1/1.5/2/2.5 from 3/4/5/6
=======================================================

- Mage Praetor -

If you stacked mana on the mage in the previous version, his mana shield could make him WAY too difficult to kill. By changing this, he is a lot less tanky, and he relies more on health and less on mana

=======================================================
-Reduced the amount of damage absorbed by Mana shield to 75% from 100%
=======================================================

-Battle Mage -

Stacking damage and strength on the battle mage turns him into an army clearing machine due to his cleave. This should make him a bit easier to punish while keeping the strength of this hero's AoE power.
=======================================================

-Decreased the amount of splash damage Arcane Blade does to 15/25/35/45 from 15/30/45/60
-Decreased the AoE of Arcane blade to 150 from 200

=======================================


==========ITEM BALANCE CHANGES==============

-Decreased the attack speed on Zul'jeth's sword to 15% from 20%
-Decreased the damage on the Great Glaive of Alastan to 50 from 70
-Decreased the damage on Staff of the troll lords to 40 from 100

    All ranged units have 1000 range, I can fix the unit movement speeds and make EVERY ranged hero have 1000 range. The new siege unit is a good idea, but if you haven't noticed already there is a unit built from the undead shipyard called a phantom, they specialize in destroying walls. I may add an early siege unit anyway, but that depends.

    Emberstone + Voodoo Jewels in slot 2 and 3.

    Magic Essence is slot 1.

    Go to the island to the very south east.

    Go to altar.

    ALTERNATIVELY,

    There is a secret vendor on an island.

    This is a great map. The only thing that seems be sort of a negative is the huge size of the map. I mean, every time zombies destroys any of the human's main base in the main and starting land, they always manage to have some builders escape and sail off to an other island which then it makes the game even longer because then the zombies have to start making navy units and start raiding those islands. And in result of that, it leads to having massive amount of units in the map and then it gets to a point where there are SO many units in the game that it starts to make the unit's movement speed decrease so much to the point where they take 5 - 10 seconds to make a move or move somewhere. I would suggest to make the map A LOT smaller. I played this game a few times and the only times I played the game always took more then 1 hour, never less tan that (unless the undead players or human players left the game). But other than that, the game is pretty neat and well made. Keep up the good work mate. I hope to see more versions from this game in the future!

    Your in for a GIGANTIC treat.

    I am currently working on remaking this game ENTIRELY from scratch with enormous systems and ambitions.

    It is my most ambitious project ever.

    I am beta testing it internally as of now, if you want more info PM me.


    And no, this game is not well made. It was my second map and I happened to cause a lot of balance and lag issues.

    Thanks for the support.

    Maybe One Day

    Thank you kind sir :) I am joining the military shortly and honestly I believe that I will have a lot of on base time to make maps. So I am strongly considering (now that I am 22 making maps instead of 16) to get back into it. Who knows what might happen but I will probably figure out some new creations or even some remakes.

    The game is very interesting especially when you have players who are really interested or rather say absorbed to the game. I had my fair share of fun pretending to be building some kind of kingdom (LOL). It's very fun and interesting though there are a lot more than few flaws and unbalanced things but nothing that cannot be fixed or done about.

    The cave near the center of the mainland where there are a lot of strong(not really that strong) hostile units give way too much gold and wood that if you cleared the dungeon on your own. you'd have enough resources to play for a long while without worrying about lacking resources. maybe decrease the bounty reward for the units. I think they give 500gold+wood each. The sludgespitters(idk if i got the name right) attack range should be atleast 800-900 and not 950. towers can't reach them behind walls and the ranged units can do nothing bout it. Not really necessary but maybe it would make the game better? (LOL)

    The elvish(pala-something) race's foot solider, the magic soldier footman guy deals around 200+ damage when max upgraded. I think it's too high for a cheap ass units xD. The limits on some higher tier units should be increased(some decreased). The tier 2 melee of the palasomething race is weak compared to the first one.

    More unique items. The crafting feature can become greater if developed well. Perhaps a diversity in the crafting feature. All the units should be nerfed, i mean seriously, the hero does not matter at all at early games unless they have great skills that deal amazing damage or AoE. A hero would have difficulty defeating swarms of units, nerfing the units should give them some value. More heroes would also be great for each race, i haven't played as undead though.

    Perhaps when you choose a warrior type hero would give you a tier 4 Melee Unit, one that suits the hero. You get the point (or not LOL).

    The gold mines collapse mid game. They do not have enough resources to sustain a long game one. Perhaps after the gold mine collapse, you could have a function that will restore the gold mine or the gold mine heals when unused.

    Villages should give bonus items or special units when you capture them.

    The human and undead is evenly matched, maybe that the humans would have a better chance against the undead if the match was 2v2 or 3v3 because they can solo the mines. The humans have access to a higher amount of mines than the undead.

    More hostile creeps. More islands. Better

    The map was really fun and can be improved more in my opinion. 4/5

    Edit: it turns out that i was wrong about humans having better chances with 2v2, just so happened that my enemy sucked then. Undead units have no food cost and easily spammed. and the undead gold mine have more gold than the ones humans can control.
    it gets laggy and units start to delay as undead when you spam them.

    Also, heroes should have atleast 1 aura to support their army

    Thanks for the review!

    Always appreciate a lot of constructive feedback, in the next version the Dun'Hath units will definitely give a lot less upon killing, we overlooked that before.

    You see we just recently updated this game after years of no work, and a lot of the systems (such as the item combination system... yuck!) are almost 6 years old now, so naturally if it isn't working correctly we'll get around to fixing it.

    Gold mines used to have infinite gold, but this would cause resources to have little to no meaning and often humans would just sit on their island with their gold mines perpetually feeding their impenetrable fortress, the undead hopelessly besieging them to the end of eternity. We feel that by making the humans less dependent on turtling and defensive playing that we have brought out a bigger problem in the design, which is the strength of human units v.s undead units. That is one of the problems we are working on currently, and balance is subject to change drastically in future editions.

    Heroes have just recently been balanced, in fact they have been buffed. They are meant to take on more supportive roles, although their balancing is also subject to change greatly. I believe that once I update the item system a bit that heroes will become more useful, I'm not sure what I will do with the item system but there will definitely be buffs for most if not all of the items.

    Again it becomes very hard to balance when your game has only 2 or 3 people who are experienced and/or good at the map, so naturally there are going to be flaws with balance.

    If you ever want to play with us, friend me and my brother on battlenet (Deinne or Cazeoj on US East, we host this periodically).

    I host it pretty often! Add me to your friends on Azeroth East (Cazeoj) and I will try to show you some stuff haha. I also run into issues when there is an imbalance of experience but that all comes to level out in time. Usually I play with the same group 2 or 3 times and there is a significant skill increase in that short span of a few hours.

    Forum

    Hi there, I was just wondering if this map has some kind of forum where you can find the secrets and stuff (like I just noticed you can summon an undead dragon :O, but dont yet know how :/)

    I´m a big fan of medieval/fantastic human vs zombies map, like this one or war in the plaguelands. I see a great future with this map if you keep working on it ^^.

    Right now, there is no forum specifically for this map or the plague series in general, however I have gone through several of them haha.

    But don't lose hope! I tend to host these maps often on battlenet, so if you friend cazeoj on US East and play some games with me I'll probably end up teaching you a few things about the map you probably didn't know.

    That's unfortunate. I use makemehost to host usually, and that hosts the map on all realms. Maybe one day you'll find your way onto one of my games
