Region 0.37

Submitted by rulerofiron99
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
REGION
Created by rulerofiron99

Map Info:
Build an army. Every round, your army spawns to fight either against randomised creep waves, or against another player's army. You have no direct control over your army after it spawns; your role is to build the right units in the right formation. Victory is achieved by acquiring a set number of Victory Points, gained by beating other players' armies.

Suggested players: 2-6.
Playable in single player, but not recommended (balance is for 2+ players)

*** Strictly speaking, this map is in WIP, which as per the rules is not allowed. HOWEVER: it is already in a very playable and polished state (aside from minor balance tweaks and unforeseen bugs that are to be expected), and due to its replayable nature I feel it is enough for at least being taken a look at. I have much more content planned, which I plan to update as time goes by. ***

Similar to (and drawing inspiration from):
- Legion TD
- Blood Tournament
Apparently also similar to Pokemon Defense.

Features:
  • Unique TD-ish gameplay, combining the low-APM requirement of Tower Defense with the glorious battles of melee Warcraft.
  • Set your army in a formation to maximise its damage and survivability.
  • Seven (and counting) different races to choose from, each with its own strengths and weaknesses.
  • Use global-range spells to influence battles, improve your army, or slow down another player's progress.
  • Powerful bosses, each with special abilities designed to plow through your tanks and engage all elements of your army.
  • Randomised creep waves, ensuring that each game is different to the last.
  • Failing a level doesn't mean it's over for you; you get to fight it again next round. Although this might slow down your progress (and thus army size), you will never find yourself out of the running.
  • Many options and army styles to choose from, and designed to all be viable. Region isn't a game where the winning strategy is to simply spam a powerful unit; every build and every strategy has a counter.
  • Set custom behaviours on your units; e.g. to have them perform a tactical retreat when near death, or flank your enemy's army.
  • Multiple game modes: Survival (leak X amount of waves to lose, last player wins), Classic (as described above) and Tournament (you fight against players each round); each of which can be customised with Short/Medium/Long and Allpick/Draft/Allrandom

Planned Content and Features:
  • More races.
  • More units for each existing race.
  • More unit behaviour settings.
  • More spells.
  • Random terrain generator.

    Whoops, meant it goes up to 30, so level 29 is the last one that has creeps.

    Findings so far:
    After a duel round, one of my Troll Doctors left a Healing Ward, I won the round, but when the Ward expired, the screen showed that my enemy won the round, and we both got gold from it.

    Also Slayer is OP xL

    Ok screenshots added. Although I disagree with the idea that you can find a map good or bad without playing it first.

    You might want to take a look at this, it's an older version but it might have some unforeseen bugs.
    http://www.mediafire.com/file/w3g5td4dw6ibs4e/Bug_Report.w3g

    Things to notice:
    Castle doesn't attack air
    Castle can be abused with Fear
    A duel bug (it isn't the healing ward one)
    And some more units to take notice, either buff or nerf.

    1 - 2. on it
    3. Please be more specific; I've rarely encountered a bug where some players would be excluded in duels - I've attempted another fix for this in 0.36c. This the one you're talking of, or another?
    4. Please be specific, I don't play much.

    I found it here, shortly before some people got banned and removed their resources.

    Map isn't protected, so feel free to export and use it, just remember to credit the creator! (listed in credits)

    May have found a bug. During the duel, after a person has killed the other persons creeps, the duel still doesnt end. No one has won and the game doesnt continue. The creeps of the supposed winner are standing at one side of the arena.

    Thanks for reporting.

    Could you maybe send me a replay?
    Which version did you play?
    Which races were involved in the duel?

    Version 0.36e
    If I'm not mistaken it was trolls vs orcs. The trolls were supposed to win.
    Unfortunately I didn't save a replay.

    Btw, why do units like the troll witch doctor and wizard (the two i've seen so far) sometimes walk away from the battle and afk somewhere at the edge of the arena? Is it a bug?

    I think the duel bug might have to do with healing ward, thanks for pointing that out.

    The Witch Doctor and Wizard - that's definitely also a bug, probably to do with their autocasting triggers. I'll look into it.

    Thanks again for the feedback!

    Sure no problem. This game has become one of my favourites. Hope to see it blossom into one of the most played custom maps. Could have more spells, units per race and unit upgrades though. Awesome map. Keep up the good work

    You should pick a better name, at first I thought it was a trigger system or something lol.
    Concerning the map, it seems interesting. When you add more races I think it could be better than Legion TD :D
