Rise of the Damned


An Undead Campaign

A campaign about Sylvanas and Arthas... And the long way that they need to do in order to fulfill their destiny.
Like my other campaigns (Humans and Orcs), this is alternate from RoC, so because of that some things are different from the original.



Story


After Sylvanas' death and the destruction of the Alliance base... She became a ghost and now seeks her vengeance... Alongside with her Forsaken army, she will realize that even the death will not stop her for kill her enemies.
And even Arthas, although his death, the people who killed him will suffer his wrath...

Imprtent to Know

Bags

- I still learn how to make cinematic scenes to be skipped.
- Chapter Nine will be a little strange.
- It could be that some of the dialogues in the campaign will not be understandable, my English isn't good.
- Because that I haven't time for the campaign, some of the chapters will be same like the campaign in the RoC, but with some difference, so I hope you like it.

    Alright, here is my review for the first chapter

    Grammar problems
    - "Notice: Sylvanas will get abilities when she grows her level"
    -Main Quest: "...has taken her body..."
    "What the? Who said that?"
    "...we heard about what happened here..."
    "My lady, there are more corpses..."
    "What the hell? Where did this creature come from?"
    Optional Quest Ressurection: "...Raise them and they will serve you..."
    "My lady, there are two bases...if we destroy their halls it will slow them down."
    Optional Quest Stop the Death: "...to reduce them in this land."
    "My lady, there are more undead... they are coming towards us now."

    Gameplay
    -In the opening cinematic, fix the camera position when Sylvanas starts saying her second phrase, when she hears a noise
    -Raise Dead should have W hotkey instead of E
    -Why does Sylvanas use her 'Animate Ability' whenever she raises her warriors during the Optional Quest?

    My review for Chapter Two

    Grammar
    "Watch out! Some of them are located underground."
    Ancient ring: "This article... assimilated into the underground... Also detects..."
    "...and then we get out of here."
    "...place wasn't so bad after all."
    "...get out of here."

    Gameplay
    -Fix the game cache
    -The Skeleton Troll and Crypt Beast have no fixed portrait
    -The third group of risen undead warriors are visible even before I raise them
    -So if these dead were humans sent by Dalaran, how come there are trolls, mammoths and wolves among them?
    -Once we enter the boss room, the buried Crypt Fiends are vulnerable, so my units attack and kill them while the cinematic is happening. You should make them invulnerable during the cinematic

    My review for Chapter Three

    Grammar
    "We scouted this area..."
    "...ready the warriors for battle."
    "I don't want the Scourge to destroy them."
    Altar of Queen --ยป Altar of the Queen
    -The Apotechary's Shadow Bolt should say "...Hurls a shadowy bolt..." rather than "Hurls a fiery bolt..."
    Touch of Death upgrade: "...ability, which allows..."
    "...lady, I have new information..."
    Optional Quest: "...before he wakes up."

    Gameplay
    -The Apotechary's second ability is not the one that the description of his Adept Training says he has
    -The Slave unit after finishing a building keeps using the 'Building' animation
    -The Touch of Death buff needs to be reviewed

    Why in chapter 3, the scourge start to send an overrunning heavy troops, it supposed to be sent after 10-17 minutes mark, i guess? Then should start send an infinite amount of unit at last minute though.
    So when will this giant Abomination wake up, you forgot to set this countdown?

    Map: Journey of Revenge
    Version: Demo


    Review
    by Shar Dundred


    Presentation
    Your terrain is using decent tile variation and doodads but many places are just too empty in my opinion.
    Larger areas feel rather empty. I am not saying that you need to fill everything with tons and tons of doodads, but Chapter One and Chapter Three could use more of them. Chapter Two does not suffer too much from this, but I'd still say that it could benefit from more terrain work - I find the fact that living spiders live among the undead nerubians a bit weird but it did not bother me too much.
    I cannot say too much about the Forsaken faction that is added here and therefore will not consider them in my score.
    One because you do not play too much with the faction to get a real feel for it, so the player does not get to the later tiers and two because it reminds me way too much of tomoraider's Forsaken faction.


    2/5

    Story
    The campaign does not really have much story in it - apart from Sylvanas escaping from Northrend and wanting to take revenge on Arthas. Apart from that, there is not much to remember here.
    Of course, this is a demo with only three missions so there not being too much of a story is expected. I would have liked to see more use of ingame dialogue. The maps feel a bit quiet. Again, I am not saying that you should force too much into it, but especially in Chapter Three, some ingame dialogue could help with it.
    The grammar, however, needs some work. I suggest starting with what @LISBOAH suggested so far.


    2/5

    Gameplay
    This short demo campaign consists of two micro missions and one defensive macro map.
    I liked the first mission's design around Sylvanas slowly coming to power, personally, I would have prefered seeing this utilized more for the other chapters. Sure, she has recovered her body, but after slowly getting spirit powers, I'd have expected her to take at least one more chapter to really "get used" to her new powers. I do understand why you might have chosen not to do it like that and instead change back to the original leveling up so that is just me throwing an idea around.
    The maps' difficulty felt easy to me. I think Chapter One can pretty much stay the way it is, for Chapter Two I'd suggest some tweaks for the boss fight - I am not talking about difficulty, I mean trying to make it more dynamic. Here's a link for a tutorial on how to do that.
    Chapter Three could need some more "special" waves, maybe use triggers for that, to add gameplay variety.

    2/5

    Bugs
    I do not have much to add to what @LISBOAH already said. There's some bugs here that need to be fixed.
    I will add that I suggest simply pausing (and afterwards unpausing) Sylvanas in Chapter One when she animates new warriors so that the Animate Dead thing does not happen once she gains that ability.


    Overall
    I think that this campaign needs some work before it can be approved.
    Fix the bugs & the grammar, improve the gameplay and the terrain and I can approve this.


    2/5
    Set to Awaiting Update!

    It doesn't appear to have been updated. It seems to be the same campaign I played in January,
    without any changes.
    Hive does not display it being updated either.

    New maps as well? I thought this demo had been semi-abandoned.
    If it is unfinished, wouldn't Map Development be more appropriate?

    No changes still, moved to Substandard.
    As I said earlier, if this is still in deep development, I suggest using the Map Development forum instead.
    You are going to get your feedback there as well & the Map Section is supposed to be used for finished campaigns/maps.
    Also the issues I mentioned in my review sadly still remain unfixed.
    If you fix them, I can move this to Approved, even if it is still being developed.

    I still work on the Undead\Forsaken campaign, I uploaded this demo just for feedback... If this problematic, I will delete the demo and upload when the campaign will be ready (my english isn't good, so sorry about that)

    As I mentioned earlier, if this is in development and you want feedback, you should go to Map Development.
    We can keep this map in Substandard until you are finished.

    You just need a more "finished" product for Approval, I can review this again when it is ready, no problem. :)
