Sacred War Revolution 5.2g

Sacred War Revolution (Map based on saint Seiya's anime)

From Anime to Warcraft. Here begins the last battle between Athena Saints and Evil forces, now commanded by Hades: The God of Death. Choose your side and have fun!!!
AoS type map.
More than 50 Heroes available! www.sacredwar.co.nr

New gen is 5.0 and above made by Darkrider

from 1.0 to 2.7b made by Lord_Metatron also known as Pisces_Aphrodite

versions 2.8-2.9,3.1-3.2 made by Pandemoni0, Mizar_Shido and Pegasus_Seiya

The main goal, as in any AoS, is to destroy the enemy base using your hero. Each side has its unique heroes to choose and 3 different selection modes, described as follows:
Normal mode: Players can choose heroes only from their side
All random: Players get a random hero from any side
No honor: players can choose heroes from any of both sides
-Commands: Players can -repick or -random heroes by typing this commands or -swaphero with other players

There is an special event that may happen at some interval (8,10,12,15,20 minutes) that moves every hero into an arena called "Elisium fields" where they fight together (ultimate skills disabled) for a blessing from their gods

There is another special feature where killed units (creeps or heroes) can drop some special items

Creeps can drop precious stones (Sapphires, emeralds and rubies) to sell for an individual amount of gold, or merge three different stones into a more expensive one to sell

heroes can drop arsenal pieces. This arsenal pieces are parts of a greater item called "Set". There are 5 kind of sets (Frost, Nature, Soul, Arcane and Wind) that provides the owner a greater power to fight his foes. This sets are made of 4 arsenal pieces each (arsenal pieces are dropped on death, and if a hero dies with a set it is disassembled and 1 of the 4 pieces is lost).

And last you can choose between a normal experience mode, global experience mode, a fast mode or a fast mode with global experience.

This version is believed to work for 1.24

Here is an explanation on one of the features the map has

Arsenals are great items and can easily decide the fate of a match.
But they are hard item to complete so their effect is not known by all players.
It's a common mistake to believe that only because he completed the arsenal he should use it.
To help with all those problems i created this Arsenal Guide so everyone will know them and can create a good strategy.

Dear God.... please hide screen shots...
Just had a quick bash, Very professional presentation, but the hero I used had all blizzard spells, and they they didn't really seem to have any theme or synergize very well. Couple of things stood out like the albatross used to pick the heroes flying into the ground etc.

just 2 imported models. But there are no saint seiya models in the whole world :S... ive tried lots of times but no results. (besides, my map already has 3.9Mb, in 1.24 doesnt matter, but for previous versions it did :p)

Dec 31, 2007
yes, many people complains about that... i think i'll lower the amount of gold per lvl. If you wanna try, in fast mode people lose 50%

but the maths are 160+(hero level*18) in lvl 30 you lose 700 gold

(if you want to compare it to dota, i've just checked and in lvl 25 you lose 750) <- in normal game not EM

Hi, darkrider,
Your math seems correct, but in the last few games, people have complained about losing 1300 gold upon death (in FAST mode). Please see if you can test out the gold loss again.

did you read the part that says this map has been created in mid 2005? its far older than any anime map i know... in spite the fact that im making it since jan 2008 (naruto came after) the map has been played for quite a long time

But anyways, its your opinion about it (even though you are not considering the work it has on:()

Hi there arthas. The map now contains 20 models from the anime. But unfortunately I never uploaded it here because it never passed the beta stage :(. I haven't done any editions to the map in a very long time. If you want to try the map with the new models I can post a link to it (if I find it :p)

EDIT: I believe this is the last one, not sure thou.


Try and then comment here again ^^

Oh it look very nice ^^.
Seem you have a lot of model of saint, that very well.
But I think some spell must change.
Ex : Cancer have Skill : Sekishiki Mekai Ha?
I have demo map have 4 spell:
- Sekishiki Mekai Ha
- Rozan Hyaku Ryu Ha
- Excalibur ( I think Excalibur you are good too ^^ )
- Galaxian Explosion ( I think this spell is nice and look like anime ^^ )
This is link down my demo map :
If you agree, I can help you make some spell. I give to you by my demo map.
Ì you have Yahoo nick, add me at: [email protected]
Please coment soon!

If you want, I can make some spell were not good in your map. And you can copy my spell to your map.
I have play your map 6 beta online with my friend. That cool, I like it :D Please update spell. I realy want to play this map with better saint more.

So, if you have time. Please edit some spell not good in your map. And sure, I will help you make some spell. Add me : [email protected]
Suggestion :
+ I think you must add the Gold Saint Ultimate : Athena Exclamation.
+ Libra Dohko must have some spell of Dragon. You lose all. One of it is Rozan Hyaku Ryu Ha.
+ Death Mask Cancer must have Sekishiki Mekai Ha. ( Cancer Death Mask is very stupid and not have more spell ). You can see some spell more of Cancer when you watch Cancer of Lost Cavas. This Gold Saint is stronger.
+ Minos : I think this hero must in selection region. Ayacos must is in too. You can replace Minos by Pandora. The women alway near the Hades.
+ Some hero of Specter is not main. You can delete us and replace = some hero stronger.
- That is my suggestion in your map. I will find more to ask with you, darkrider.
Please comment soon or add my yahoo nick.

See you soon
