Sanctum

description

Sanctum is a short campaign type of map, with night elf theme, in which you are given the right to pick one hero out of 12 available. There are many creeps, 4 bosses and three shops with shop system/categories. The map can be played solo, or with one or two friends. The handicap of the creeps scale with the number of players. 1 player = 100%, 2 = 175%, 3 = 250%. The host can choose the difficulty, that determines what damage the creeps will have. You start in a 'sanctum' area with a shop and the quest giver 'Ghost from the past'. You will meet him again at the end of your journey. Some of the heroes are custom, with custom or default abilities. The abilities are bound to QWER hotkeys.

Play Time: ~50 minutes

    Rufus Moderation Note

    [​IMG] Notes:
    A pretty simple dungeon crawler type of map.
    While being somewhat entertaining in the beginning, it lacked good advancing. The creeps didn't do many new special things and very few new items could be found. T

    here was a lot of items dropping from creeps, which made it more interesting. Especially all the tomes, which made the hero grow in a rapid fashion, which was fun.

    The creeps weren't very consitant though. All the way until the magnataurs was simple and not at all challenging. The boss magnataur was ok in strength, but then the three reavers by the gate... Htey had me permanently stunned with their icebolts and they dealt as much damage (if not more) as the magnataur boss. This is where I lost interest, cause the game is clearly not balanced enough yet.

    The item shop could be expanded aswell.
    There were very few items you could get, and you got more gold than you could spend there. I saw there was a shop at a later occasion, but it was pretty far away.

    The aesthetics of the map can be improved, but it isn't that bad either. I do however question the choices of metal pipes in the middle of a forest. :)

    The heroes is ok, but not very unqiue as their abilities are mostly standard abilities, or simple edits of them. I din't feel really excited in my hero, I had to position myself good, rather than rely on the abilities.

    I think you should post this in map development instead, as it has many other factors that need to be improved before it can be approved.

    Map status set to awaiting update.

    -where is the description in the loading screen?
    -the Corrupted Protector always had a glitched animation
    -please remove the light on/off when a hero is selected/unselected...
    -the Dryad has unarmoured type of armour
    -map has linearity
    -level 3 Entangling Roots lasts 36 seconds...
    -the hero in Bear Form has the name Default string
    -the Dryad has a small selection circle
    -Great Ancient of Wonders has two Tomes of Strength +3...
    -the Demon Lord quest has the same icon as the one with the fisherman
    -the gate near the demon lord closes and some heroes might remain outside...
    -the druid in Bear Form has no hero glow
    -Entangling Roots on aerial units... Bear Form can attack air units...
    -why does the bear have armour and attack slots for upgrades?
    -the Druid's spells change places on load game

    There is room for improvement.
    2.5/5.

    EDIT (response to your message):
    Well after you load a game, Entangling Roots or some other ability swaps places with other of the druid's abilities instead of remaining on the same place/square/position.

    About the light. When a hero is selected there's a light turning on on his position and ranges towards the maximum point of the hero's visibility (I think). When I selected my friend's hero the light from my hero turned off. When I selected my hero again, the light turned on again and so on.

    Of the many things I could pick out of this map
    • The hero skillsets are poor to functional. I don't mind that you use default skills so long as you adapt them to the map. Currently it’s a mixed bag, some heroes like the Druid have default skills but they are well balanced numerically to fit a Dungeon Crawl, hence I do not mind. However there are other heroes like the Blademaster that have 1 active skill outside their ultimate.
    • Repeated skills are very hard to justify when you have “only” 12 classes.
    • It is never explained why there are Night Elf enemies when you are supposed to helping the Night Elf forest.
    • Tome drops are sporadic. The first few packs and the last few packs drop tons, the mid game is almost bare however. Same applies to most rewards, some of the larger packs have none, some of the smaller packs have a ton.
    • Most bosses have little to no abilities
    • Hero model sizes are incredibly varied, the Shadow Assassin is huge compared to most others.
    • Your quest displays run 2 twice
    • The combat can be unbearably slow at times

    Now, this is the part of the review where I ignore all of that and say I enjoyed the map anyway.
    Because despite all these glaring flaws, this map does 2 things well I believe are the most important to a Dungeon Crawl.
    • 1) It has variety in combat. As much as this map uses default assets and units, it uses them well; most packs are set up with tactical pulling and focus fire in mind. Having played a summoner class the first time round, I found myself planning fights around the fact that some monsters can nuke summons with their dispels.
    • 2) Areas look distinct. Despite the whole map being a forest; there were distinct areas in the forest, such as the river segment with its own look and monster variety.
    As bare bone as this map is in many areas, it is still a perfectly serviceable Dungeon Crawl and is enjoyable in those areas that do work. It got me thinking about strategy in a map that is basically an open world with mostly generic monsters on it. I don’t know how much of this is purely chance or well thought out level design, it was engaging most of the way through.
    Perhaps this is the Warchasers formula; (interesting zones, varied approaches to monster packs and some item rewards.)
    Nothing else matters apparently.

    I would suggest you show up some other heroes in your screenshots rather than multiple screenshots using a single hero, you said there are 12 avaliable ones to pick, so at least 1 screenshot with each hero could make the map more interesting to download.

    Ghost keeper at the beginning shows up as an enemy.

    Dropped items can't be picked up, it just gives a message that you can't use them. Even if you bought the item in the first place, and even in single player.

    Killing the Magnataur boss didn't open the gate. I had flame strike and Kelen's dagger so it didn't matter, but...

    On singleplayer, I reached level 10 long before the end of the map.

    THE REVIEW:

    Good Points:
    - The map really feels like an RPG
    - It is a nice map for multiplayer
    - The difficulties are done well
    - The spells are different and I like them
    - I liked the looking of the map

    Bad Points:

    - When I've picked the assassin hero, the speech of the Ghost of the Past had a voice acting, which is good, but it was said 2 times
    - I saw a grammar mistake in the Hero spell Wind Armor, below you can see this
    - I couldn't continue the game further as the Gate didn't open, below you can see this too

    Suggestions:
    - You can add some more custom stuff, like icons for items etc...
    - You can also make something more exciting, like some creatures, like waves are attacking the Heroes

    Well, that's it for now. I will give you 4/5, and when you update the mistakes 5/5.


    All the best from Svetli. :)

    OPPA STAN

    with another pve map (Soylent / Dzolo here from GR)

    - If the game tracks Damage Done, then so it deserves to track Healing Done and Damage Absorbed.
    This way, the healers and tanks get some love as well, not just DPS dudes.

    - Also its *"Assassin" not "Assasin".

    Edit: Im awaiting your WoW Arena update.

    It is ok, nice small RPG map, not much story, just a dungeon crawler I guess.
