Great map, but only A F T E R Y O U R E A D F 9 !!!

Even if it's still recreating and balancing I find it very interesting with varius of heroes and items. Some skills are simply extrordinary, although the different new models make you wanna play the game.

Nice map, takes a while to get used to, but i guess it's like that will all new maps. Pretty concept and design.

Too many items imo, will get new ppl mixed up and lost, took me a while to pick an item that suits me best since there are just too many. I HIGHLY suggest to tone it down.

The only thing that really disturbed me was the terrain texture. The "Sunken Temple" theme has a lot of color mixtures in its textures, it gets disturbing after a while, especially if you quickly scroll around.
Try changing the theme to something with less color mixtures, like Lorderon or City or something.

I agree, you can tone down the map and it could still look very nice and the DL size will be lowered as that is a big problem. The DL is so long no one sticks around to get it all and just leave. So, if you could, reduce the size, that would be tremendous. Please mail me if you ever get around to it.

I did consider making a "lite" version of it that stripped out the custom models, that recuded the size to about 2.7meg down from 4, but did mean it had no nice models/icons etc..
It has had revisions in the past that have removed several hundred doodads but the filesize was only affected by 1-2k at the most..

Great map man, I finally gave it a try and thoroughly enjoyed it. I played as the Black Cat (that was the model I forget the name) who seemed a little weak, but nonetheless I liked the map.

Wouldn't slowly inuring those in the Ritual of Titans at night balance that aspect of the game more, considering that the dominant leveled heroes will always have control of it? If they were to get damaged for like 3 hp per interval it would balance to where eventually the opposing heroes could try to take it over and get their share in the ritual, and it would also make sense in that it would be sacrificing something for the gold/lumber.
Level 9
Apr 28, 2006
Thats not a bad suggestion, but after a few more games ways of taking teh ritual from higher lvel players becomes apparent, for example u can purchase very powerful 1 use only summons that are quite capable of taking on a hero on thier own to bolster your forces to beat more powerful heroes, or at least drive them off.

Also soem spells are designed especially to "clear off" folks on teh ritual as they must all stand very close together and threfore are suckers for AOE or AOE Debuffs. (Grenaders, AOE silencers etc)
You also have full vision of teh ritual even at night, so u can see them...but they cant see you.

Also a HP drain would be nastier on lower levels heroes than higher and make taking teh ritual harder for udnerdogs,
Also, heroes will "cap out" half way through the ritual so to comepltely deny it to an enemy team they must stand there for the full time even though they only get bonuses for half of it.

In addition if u cant take the ritual at all, kill a titan while their all standing about on it, u get a simlier amount of lumber+XP too.

5/5 Very fun map. I even thought it was pretty fun to play alone (and thats VERY unusual) but it would be even better if you added computer AI. But that last boss (cant remember his name) was pretty weak, even though I was playing single-player.

Super-sheep, I don't think it's too hard to get a good amount of players. I found hosting in a a server which no one play rotg isn't too hard at the start, just get ppl to dl off site (www .rotg.co.uk), might need a little wait for the first few weeks. After you got a fan who play rotg too on that server, just drag him with you in the game, and he will upload too, making it twice as fast to dl ppl.

Gameplay: 5/5 The game is very well designed. There is always enough to do so that no one gets bored. You can always go creeping to level up, you need to fight for the ritual in the middle of the map, you need to kill the titans that spawn randomly on the map and if that is not enough you can challenge enemy heroes to a duel. Very funny, very exciting, very cool!

Level Design: 5/5 The map looks very nice! There are many doodads around that are an eye candy. Also the design favors the playing style. There are different paths to take, the ritual is on a very good spot - in the exact middle of the battlefield. Also the boss is placed very well and the random spawn points for the titans are also nicely spread over the map. The 4 gates that are on the map offers advanced tactical possibilities.

Sound/Models/: 5/5 Well all models are cool, all icons are fitting and all doodads are sweet. They are flawlessly imported and add very much to the feeling of the map.

Heros/Units: 5/5 All heroes are well designed, with a background given. Their skills are cool and unique. Every hero has his role in the fight and plays different from other heroes. Just the random hero function seems broken .. I got the elementalist 3 of 3 times now ^^

Replayability: 5/5 You included many, many game modes and enough heroes to let the players be entertained for a long period of time. Even without a save/load feature or something like that, RotG deserves a 5/5 here.

Balance & Bugs: 5/5 I did not found any bug or flaw. Also the balance is very, very nice. Every hero can kill, every hero can die. The creeps are not to hard and not to easy. The items are a good enhancement but not overpowerd. After all a very well balanced map!

Final Score: 30/30 = 5/5

Yeah RotG is maybe the best hero arena out there and it does not deserves to stand in the shadow of dota. It is very well balanced and even if you are on the losing side for the whole game you can be the winning team in the end if you just play clever enough. In most other games the team that has the advantage early on will also win the game in the end. This one is different! You have to concentrate the whole game and you must never give up hope. Cool!

Hell Knight sucks ass, maybe give him a new model, replace a skill or two, and buff him a little bit? :thumbs_up:
One more thing, repick also sucks, I lose all my gold and I get a random hero? Why?

Other then that, the game is good.
Edit: My Non Newb Review

Gameplay [3/5]:
The gameplay, the way a player does things, is Average, and here is why. You start out with a spirit who you select a hero with, which is like any other arena. You run around and kill monsters and players, which is like any other arena and gets very redundant. The only thing different is the "boss" spawning, which isn't really that much different, it just more random. Overall the gameplay is average.

Balance [3/5]:
You balanced this game about average as well, and here is why. As mentioned above, the Hell Knight sucks ass. There are a couple of other heroes that need buffing (or at least nerf the other ones). My Hell Knight, which should be a better tank then the Chaos Knight, is worse. The Chaos Knight, at a lower level, can solo titans, where as my hell knight, at higher level, can barely put a dent in them. Please work out the balancing issues for a higher rating.

Visuals [4/5]:
The Visuals of the game, the look and feel, is good. There are some issues to iron out, for instance, the Hell Knight doesn't have that great of a model, and the "underworld" objects blend in too well with the surroundings where they should stand out just a tad. Other then that, the visuals are just great, and everything that should blend in blends and the models for most heroes fit perfectly!

Other Points [3/5]:
While this game has a lot of things in it that are good it has a few things to iron out. There are no bugs, but there should be some things to take into consideration. For instance, warn people that you take all their gold and that they get a random hero, or at least give them the option to pick again only once. Also, maybe add a fair system in which an item is designated for that player for 30 seconds if the person did so much damage. And finally maybe add an exhaustion debuff on a hero whose mana or hitpoints go too low, thus causing them to move 50% slower until they regain a certain amount of hitpoints.

Overall [13/20]:
"[3/5] Useful"
Other then a couple of tweaks and fixes, I would share this game to anyone who enjoys Arenas. IF you work out a few more tweaks, I am sure you will get a higher grade.

Well DarkNite, the last post he ever made is on the ROTG forums saying that ROTG wasn't advertised correctly...

heres the post
ello folks, I'm still about, though I must admit being ina computer based job means I have little time outisde of work to devote to creation projects such as this,
I'm keeping an eye on things although there are not enough things I belive need changing to warrent me doing another version that everyone would have to re-download.
I still have the core files for the FFA version I was designing and maybe if I get laid off ill complete it, else I might just release the core files so other people can finish it if they wish =)

Anyway, See you all soonish, the players of b.net were just too taxing and demanding to try and teach something that was quite complex in nature.

ROTG FFA is probably not going to be created then I guess- tho i still play ROTG if enough pple join.

Hi folks, ROTG has been busted by warcraft 1.24 whitch im actually goign to resolve if i can sort out some JASS issues, while im at it i'll make some revisions.

People found the game far too hard live on bnet. (I fail to see how they cant get to lvl 6 tbh, the heroes can do that by simply attack moving on the whole)

Hence im now adding options to start the game all players t lvl 6, options to increase starting cash, handing out free heal potions when you first spawn, repick will no longer cost gold, instead you can choose the number of -repicks you want players to have,

and so on.

Also, regarding the post above about Hell knights vs chaos knights and balance, by the sound of it it was tested 1v1 or possibly pve 1v0. The game is not really deisgned to be played like this and when it is some heroes will blantantly out-preform others. (in PVE games the creeping heroes would out perform the pvp ones easily)

However, assuming you were in a live 3/3, 4v4,

Why does the hell knight match up? or does he?

At a glance chaos knight owns hell knight.
So wheres the balance you ask?
Comes in the playing:
Hell knight is harder to play but actually better if you know how:

Lumber is the key to winning the game as it allows you to purchase the items / upgs you need to really excel. The weapon upgs are very lumber costly.

A HK can start the game, grab a cheap weapon such as a flail, creep 1/2 camps in less then 30 seconds and use his ability to upgrade it for free. This gives him +20 damage in undr a minute. No other hero can match that for basic whacking power so fast.

This can be quickly bumped to a fire upg within 2 mins so he has cleaving attacks.
Also any weapon he grabs can be instantly upgraded allowing him to use his lumber elsewhere and out-gear other heroes.

Also, an overlooked fact is the HK is undead while the CK isnt. The undead items are more powerful than the non undead ones. This gives him access to Sword of unholy power with a free upg on it.

Finally HK has a CC/AOE ultimate that can clear teams off the ritual. The CK dosnt and is easily taken out by stopping him at range as he has nothing with any range.

Underworld strike is pretty useless early on, but as it deals a % of the enemies HP in dmg it actually has a higher dmg potential late game than anything the CK can put out. (takes almost 1200 of a high target in one hit whitch can make the HK a better titan killer)

hope this helps clarify the seemingly strange balance.

CK is a beginner hero. anyone can try him and own. the HK is a master hero. it requires you know how to play the game and use him a little better.
