Robot Wars 2.2
It is finally here, the map were you can challenge your friends in an epic battle with war everywhere! Grab a robot, some abilities and your ready for battle! Beware of the many traps that are all over the arena! Also the most dangerous of all, the pit!

Spells:
There are 12 target point spells and twelve no target spells. 6 of these are ultimates meaning that there are 3 target point ultimates and 3 no target ultimates. Most of the spells have knockback, this can be used to knock enemies down into the pit or just knock them away for the fun of it. The less health you have, the more knockback you will receive.

Knockback Resistance:
This is not what it may sound like the first time you hear it. Knockback resistance controls how much you will become knockbacked, the more resistance the less knockbacked you will become.

Robots:
There are currently 6 different robots to choose from. Some are small, light and fast but have none or a very small amount of knockback resistance. Some are bigger but slower but have a greater amount of knockback resistance. They also have more health which also provides into less knockback.

Traps:
Currently there are 11 random events that occur every minute in battle. These are all dangerous in different ways. It's all from a storm trying to drag you down into the pit to bombs falling down from the sky, so be careful as you battle.

The pit:
The famous pit is of course also in this game. It is in the center of the map and can be activated by pressing the four switches that are placed out across the arena. When activated, you can fall down and face an instant death.

Game play:
In Robot Wars it's not the amount of kills that counts, it's how much destruction you create. Meaning the more you damage other's, the more gold you get to buy items.

After each round everyone receives a power crystal which can be used to buy a new ability or upgrade one that you already have. This means that even though someone wins round after round he will still have as many skills as you do. The winner of each round is granted 200 extra gold which can be used to buy more powerful items.

Items:

The items are pretty simple, there are some items that you can attack with such as land bombs or the explosion kit. But there are also items which can heal you or increase your maximum health.

Aiming for in the future:

Creation of a fully working spell reflector.
More deadly traps.
Team choosing system.
More robots.
More items.
And much much more. ^^

I would like to thank everyone who has helped me make this map come true.
Special thanks to:
My school mates who helped me test the map looking for bugs etc.
Flare for he's lightning system.

Thank you for reading, I will see you in the arena.;)

Version History:
Code (Text):
1.0: Released the map.
[B]1.1:[/B] Fixed some bugs and added a new random event. Also nerfed some spells.
[B]1.2:[/B] Fixed some bugs and tool tips, also added a new item.
[B]1.3:[/B] Some major bugs fixed, you can now buy items again.
[B]1.4:[/B] Charge no longer damages yourself, Boomerang now works once again. Magnetic ball and Mystic net are no longer based on the same ability as the ones in row three (Charge, Critical Jump, Boomerang). Added a new command for player one.
[B]1.5:[/B] Arcane Bolt now travels faster for each level. The knockback of Chaotic Fire has been reduced. Added two new levels on the Knockback Resistance Kit. Increased the knockback resistance on all robots except for Light Tank. Increased the health of Heavy Tank. Reduced the health of Light Tank.
[B]1.6:[/B] Edited Iron Grip so it's a target point ability, it now picks a random enemy unit in front of you at 200 range instead of actually selecting the enemy. The casting range is set to 200 so you don't cast too far away.
Added a new game mode, you can now choose to have the pit permanently open.
Fixed the Houserobots Mystic Net again.
The small energy balls that comes from the big Energy Ball now really dies after three seconds or on collision as the tooltip says.
You are no longer granted kills from yourself when falling down the pit.
[B]1.7:[/B]Nerfed Rocket Twirl’s damage.
Bouncing Glaive and Suicide Bomber now damage
their correct value each level.
Fixed the Multiboard, you can now keep empty
spots between players without it bugging.
Fixed some bugs in overall.
Added one new command:
“-damage”, shows the current round damage dealt
for all players.
Added a new event, when there is two robots left
a two minute countdown timer will start. When it
ends the one with the most round damage wins.
1.8: New item: Bomb Detector, reveals nearby land
bombs in the area.
Land bombs now have permanent invisibility.
Fixed Flamethrowers damage.
Fixed some leaking issues, the game should be
a lot less laggy now.
1.9: Sorry about Flamethrower, it’s the last time I say that it’s fully
working now beacause it really is. Fixed the leaver bug. Fixed the
spawning Magical Pen bug. Fixed the revive bug. You can no
longer cast spells in the shop area. Lowered Iron Grips damage
a lot, it’s still good though, not just overpowered anymore.
Added a new random event. Ultimates now require atleast three
spent Power Crystals.
2.0: The new version is finally here! A lot of balancing, bug removing etc! A new item and two new random events! Health kits now give health in percent. Bouncing Glaive now bounces on the pit if it's not opened. And much much more!
2.1: New items, 1 new ability, new random events and a lot of bug fixes.
2.2: A lot of new items, team mode added, replaced rocket rain.

    Will do.
    Edit: Fixed.

    >Oh wait, this is too imba :

    You mean the ability Ram? Why is it overpowered? What should I change? Damage? Speed?

    >And the Health kit is not working!
    What...? Buying the Health Kit works. Upgrading the Health Kit works. What isn't working? Note that you can only have one Health Kit and upgrade it by clicking it in your inventory.

    >+ : the game is not ending at the start! :D

    What do you mean?...

    The ram ability : the tank is moving way too fast.
    I took the fastest tank and it still could hit me and as you know, each hit deals serieus damage! (upgrades)

    For the health kits:
    we clicked on them and they didn't work for some reason to restore health(?)

    And for the ending:
    the game didn't ended here.
    It just continued, but without units.

    Of course it moves fast, if you could avoid it too easy then it would be useless. There are abilities such as Shield, Jump and Charge that can be used to protect yourself or avoid his/her attacks. Believe me, my friend uses Ram all the time, when you learn to avoid it correctly it will be pointless for him to use it. Magnetic Ball is also good in order to drag him away giving him a new course so he misses you.

    Health kits doesn't restore health. Repair kit does. If you read at the bottom of the tooltip you can see the price of upgrading it to the next level. Health kits grants you extra maximum health.

    Fixed the ending part.

    Okay then for the ram ability.

    But I'm pretty sure the health kit didn't worked somehow, neither for me and the players.
    They even dropped the item etc..
    Ah well, np :)

    hi, I tested your map on battle.net, and it was very funny.
    very nice spells, and items (can be more).
    But I found one bug: Before I died, I used the Explosion Pack, but before the timer expires the opponent killed me. And then, I did not respawn...

    Impossible, I just tested it. Me and my friends has also used them a lot in our fights without any problems.

    >They even dropped the item etc..
    Yes, if you equip another Health Kit when your already wearing one you will drop it.



    >hi, I tested your map on battle.net, and it was very funny.
    I'm glad you like it. ^^

    >very nice spells, and items (can be more).
    Yes, more items will be made in coming versions.

    >But I found one bug: Before I died, I used the Explosion Pack, but before the timer expires the opponent killed me. And then, I did not respawn...
    Strange... But fixed. Similar problems has appeared when others played the map, such as your not invulnerable and such. I now run a trigger that sets your health to 100%, giving you invulnerable and revives you every two seconds when there is no battle. Now it should be impossible not to become invulnerable, revived or damaged when there is no battle.

    If anyone can host this for me please tell me, I want to play it on Battlenet so much! ^^

    I think Xarwin means, that u can 'use' it (heals u)
    But the health kit only increases the hitpoints (passive)

    edit: ahh.. I found another 'bug'. At the beginning of each round, the Heavy tank sometimes is out of the magical fence... anyway he can't move....

    Hm... I can lower his collision size, that would solve that problem.


    >Did you fix the item upgrade of that kit that decreases KB?
    What version was it bugged in? If it was the latest then no, then I will have to have a check on that.

    1.6 and 1.7. Oh and the dmg for the flamethrower is still not fixed. And different kinds of tanks seem to get different speed bonuses when they use ram, although i'm not so sure about that.

    Will have a look on the KB resistance kit then.

    >Oh and the dmg for the flamethrower is still not fixed.
    I will check that and fix it, will do it tomorrow though since it's 1.48 AM here and I'm really tired.

    >And different kinds of tanks seem to get different speed bonuses when they use ram
    Impossible. The movement is done with triggers and triggers only. The tank is sliding over the ground and it's movement speed has nothing to do with it.

    An advice: make the bombs invisible, cause it's very easy to avoid these bombs, and when they were invisible, there is a higher chance, that you touch them

    You mean the random event spawning land bombs or the item ones?

    It will take a little extra time for the next version to come out, I accedently corrupted the unprotected version. Lucky for me I had a copy from 1.6, so I have to remake 1.7

    Oh and by the way, I fixed Flamethrowers damage bug.

    Hey There ^^
    Great map, glad i played it, really. Some minor bugs and glitches, and there seem to be some memory-leaks because whenever i play it (even on lan), others complain about the immense lag that builds up after some time... Well, just try to find where the leaks are and fix them.
    Gameplay is great fun. The Tanks and the spells need to be slightly balanced, but thats nothing big. Items are fine, Triggers are nice work, the arena is cool... Well, looking forward to meeting you online ;)

    I mean every bomb, Land and Item. It's more fun if you do not see the bomb, cause it's to easy to avoid them
