Pocket DotA 3.00

Submitted by Parrothead
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
===========================================
This map was protected by the author.
===========================================
PLEASE READ AT LEAST THE FIRST BOX BELOW!

PLEASE AT LEAST READ THIS BEFORE PLAYING.

The game was meant to be a spin-off of DotA, and is it's own entity. I know some of the community here dislikes DotA because of various reasons, but please do not comment and exclaim things like "This map is a rip off!" when you haven't tried the map and are basing your assumptions solely off of the name. In addition, I do not care that you think my map is too similar to DotA or other games; keep that in mind when you are posting. Finally, if you are looking in the comments for feedback before you play, I recommend the last few pages as the game has severely changed over the course of nearly 4 years. Thank you for reading at least this box.


Background

This game is based off of the DotA Allstars map by Icefrog. It was created to promote my clan, and because I love DotA and its concept. This originally was a one lane map with only DotA heroes, but was split into a three lane map with custom heroes while retaining the 'pocket' feeling I wanted.

Most heroes have all unique abilities, but a few still retain one or two ladder skills. I worked a way around the ladder abilities being repetitious by combining other ladder abilities with them; that is to say I didn't overdo anything. Unlike heroes, the majority of items aren't similar. I took a different approach in item design, though you will see some similarities with varying items in both games. Heroes have to be built differently from one another to achieve the best use of your hero (type -tips ingame for build help). Just like in DotA, the items are what make the heroes powerful late game.



Gameplay and Terminology

The gameplay is similar to DotA, however there are some big differences. The most notable is that the game is not as large as DotA in its dimensions.

There are three lanes (top, middle, and bottom) that spawn units (creeps). You must control these lanes by killing the opposing team's creeps (creep kills), while obtaining the bounty that they give when they die (last hit). Push the lanes to destroy the enemy's towers. Once you destroy their tower, the two ancients behind it will become vulnerable (they're known as raxes, or barracks). If you manage to destroy both of them, you achieve what is called super creeps.

These creeps have extra damage, extra armor, faster attack speed, and bonus hit points, and will now spawn instead of regular creeps in that corresponding lane only. The idea behind this is that super creeps will always beat normal creeps without assistance from a hero, which reinforces the idea of protecting every lane to the bitter end. Super creeps that come from the top or bottom lane after defeating all of the enemy creeps will proceed to attack the middle lane, causing multiple lanes to have problems.

Once a team loses all of their ancient buildings (barracks) except their World Tree or Frozen Throne, the opposing team will gain mega creeps. These creeps are much more powerful than super creeps, and will immediately begin spawning in all lanes. Mega creeps make the lanes extremely difficult to control for the other team, as they rip through normal creeps in a good 3-4 attacks, and super creeps in 4-5 attacks. Mega creeps also easily kill heroes that are underfarmed (weak). If you or the enemy lose the World Tree or Frozen Throne, then that team will lose, and the game will end. Achieving mega creeps is not required to win the game, but it will exponentially increase your chances of doing so.

Creeps are probably most influential in winning the game. For one, unlike in DotA, most of the time heroes can't take on mass swarms of creeps during the lategame phase on their own and will require teammate help.

Creeps spawn times work like this (TL;DR below):
Siege units spawn once every 5 waves. Beginning spawns create 4 melee creeps and 1 ranged creep at 30 second intervals starting when the clock hits 0 for the first time. Every 660 seconds (roughly every 11 minutes but is 10 minutes the first time), an additional melee and ranged creep is spawned for every lane. Melee unit production is at a maximum of 8. Ranged creeps, however, can produce a maximum of 6 per spawn. Siege machines always only spawn 1 per every 5 waves, no matter what time it is ingame.

Simplistic
4 Melee per spawn. Every 11 minutes will add 1 Extra Melee (caps at 8).
1 Range per spawn. Every 11 minutes will add 1 Extra Range (caps at 6).
1 Siege per 5 rounds. Only spawns 1 ever.

Roshan is an important factor in the game, even more important than in the standard DotA. When roshan (the gigantic rock golem in the middle of the map) dies, it gives your team many bonuses.

It gives your whole team 200 gold each, which is equal to one hero kill or 4-10 creep kills. It also gives an item called The Aegis of the Immortal, which allows one hero to reincarnate upon death one time. That item can't be dropped once picked up, so don't allow the useless teammate or item couriers carry it. The last benefit is that it gives the killing team a teleporter in that area. The teleporter will teleport any ally to their base after five seconds. You do not channel while teleporting, but your movespeed is tremendously reduced to penalize you. Unlike DotA, Roshan never respawns, but he will progressively get stronger if not killed.

There is only one Aegis of the Immortal, and dying means it will be lost forever. Platinum Divine Rapier (an item recipe) requires an Aegis of the Immortal as part of it's combination ingredients. This weapon is the strongest in the game, giving 200 bonus damage and a 180 second cooldown reincarnation. The item drops when the wielder dies (only after the reincarnation is used).

    If I missed crediting you on any resource, let me know.

    I now have uploaded a lot of the older versions, and will continue to upload older versions as they become outdated. The 1.00 series is not available because of the significant quality different between the two series. I suggest that you play the newest version, but you may look back at these if you wish. A select few of the maps are not available due to the inability to play them on the newest patch, or they contained a bug that severely hindered gameplay.

    Nice idea! One question, must the heroes be really from other games? Can it be custom made?

    Good! Cause I have an idea of a new hero. The Harbinger. A chaser agility hero.
    1st ability is 'Stun Pulse', a low mana-costing ability that just stuns a target enemy unit.
    2nd ability is 'Dampening Attack', a passive ability that slows a target unit that it attacks. Stacks
    3rd ability is 'Damage Converter'(Not sure of the name yet) Another passive ability, whenever an enemy unit attacks u, u hav a low chance to reset all ability cooldowns
    Ultimate - 'Void Pull', instantly moves a target unit towards the Harbinger

    I'll try that idea after sleeping, if it isn't that balanced I'll change a few things around.

    Thanks :)

    Given a resources rating 1 and 2 is alright as long there was a valid reason for it.

    Ok, here is my opinion.

    1) Starting Location - You set the starting location at the middle of the map, it should be set at the tavern so the user would know where to find it. New player might try to figure it out where is the tavern could possibly at.

    2) Mode Available - There is only 2 mode available, AP and APEM. You should have a AR function since some people love to play AOS with random hero (Like me). Having AP and APEM mode only would be partically pointless, it was like setting it to be easier or normal. If user know how to use the hero where they are best at, they would often use the hero only; rendering the game boring and dull.

    3) Board - You should have set it to leaderboard instead of multiboard, I cannot read some unit information such as their hotkey because the board have cover it up. You can just view it from the screenshot below.

    [​IMG]

    4) Fog - I set the map visibility to always visible, but it only show my base. Even if you are adding a anti-cheat system. try to fix this if it was possible.

    5) Hotkey error - There is a few hotkey error in your map as well. I press "S" button to get Eastern Warlock since the hotkey was indicate with a yellow S word, but I wound up getting a sniper. Another 1 of the hotkey error as well would be Magnus and Royal Guard.

    There is actually more hotkey error on it, but you can go check it out by yourself.

    6) Item Hotkey - None of the item I seen have a hotkey, some of us prefer to press hotkey to purchase item as it was a quicker approach than left click it; all your item doesn't have the necessary hotkey.

    7) Typo error - You mistype melee as meele, you can view it from this screenshot.

    [​IMG]

    There is more typo error as well such as mistype battlefury as batlefury.

    8) Item - You said 95% of the item are unique, but it look like a DotA item with greater or weaker effect.

    9) Green Icon - You have a missing dis_btn icon for battlefury as you can seen from this screenshot.

    [​IMG]

    10) Malfunction Hotkey - When I was using WeaponCrafter hero and press G to learn Ground Pound, nothing happen at all. There is a possibly of more malfunction hotkey like this.

    This resources was certainly lacking a few feature and have several flaw on it. My rating is 2/5 (Lacking)

    I believe I have provide enough reason of why it was rated rating 2.

    1: Added.


    2: Adding more modes right now, will be done by the end of today.


    3: I'm assuming you meant Multiboard instead of leaderboard, and I may do it in a future version, but right now the map has over 20 triggers involving the leaderboard so I'm not going to mess with it right now.


    4: I like keeping it so players can't use the sight cheat in single player for various reasons.

    5: Fixed all of them.

    6: I may add some in the future but right now I'm not going to until the taverns are filled.

    7: Fixed.

    8: DotA doesn't have three base boots you can buy, three base gloves and so on. What I meant was that the items looked different and were fresh. A new recipe shop is coming out soon that will have more items.

    9: The icon on this site has a broken DISBTN icon and I was going to make a new one. I'll just use a default icon for now.

    10: Fixed.


    Thank you for the review, I'm posting the revised version tonight. If you could, maybe you could review it again and see if your score changes? :)

    Err yeah, sorry. It was multiboard indeed, I was reviewing it while I was half awake.

    I do not think I would review it again, considering that reviewing AOS took quite a time and you just did a single update, I would stick to reviewing melee and cinematic map.

    If this site have a broken dis_btn icon, kindly inform the staff about it so they could fix it.

    It took me almost an hour to check out the error.

    I see the Text "Map Protected by Author".

    Do you mean the map was protected so you unprotected it and stole stuff?

    Or do you mean you still opened it without his permission and posted it here.

    OR Do you mean you DO Have his permission and he is "protecting" the map?

    well here is my review:
    This map is named pocket dota my first impression was that it is another dota map but mini, the map turned out to be a pocket AOS that have heroes from different popular AOS maps the first thing i suggest is to change the name (ex: Pocket AOS All stars).
    here are somethings you need to change in the map to make it better:
    -reduce the seleting circle size of taverns and item shops
    -remake motherboard
    -put a reviving timer
    -remove all items recipe sonce the map is pocket edition, so put hp reg and mp reg items, boots and gloves, increase damage/defence and all normal items (not recipe)

    this is a mini game aos which is very fun to play with friends
    you need to give credits for the makers of dota and gota in the credit (if you did sorry i didnt notice)
    this map will take a 2/5 only for now (which means lacking) but it will change when new versions come out. try to fix all the problems and here are some popular maps to help improve yours.1- Smota SMotA BETA v0.97b - The Hive Workshop - A Warcraft III Modding Site make sure you ask the owner
    2- Gotas (with a "s") G.O.T.A.S v1.33b - The Hive Workshop - A Warcraft III Modding Site here is mine you have my permission (type -test to check all heroes level 25)

    hope i helped you and that you will take my advice. work hard and never give up
    good luck man

    i will not give a minimod approve disapprove this map for now pm me when new version is out

    2/5

    Heroes were terribly designed, especially those like the Attribute Mage. Abilities took little to no skill to use and/or apply. The gameplay consists of going into combat, running back to heal, and going back in again. There is little variety in any of the combat situations, as the abilities are cheaply made. Combat is belittled to merely stun-to-death instead of something like RoW which involves satisfying mindgame combat before intense conflict conclusions.

    The main difference between this and DotA is the map size, which makes this feel easily-made, with simple triggering and terrain work. Also, some heroes, like the Attribute Mage, make even Axe look like a skill-based hero.

    When designing a map, it's best to focus on taking care to produce well-thought-out/created heroes (like, for example, RoW). I'd rather see 3 interesting heroes on each side for a beta than 10 mass-produced "I have Hurl Boulder, Thunderclap, and 3 passives" heroes. In the end, each player will only be using one hero during a game.
