Skillshot Arena v1.6 (preview)

Submitted by Azureusl
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
Intro
Skillshot Arena is a skillshot driven-arena where you fire projectiles at each other and fight to the death. You can fire projectiles by hovering your mouse over an opponent and pressing Q to launch the most basic projectile. Every character has 3 active abilities and 3 passives, currently, there are 2 characters and 2 half-finished characters with mark (Coming soon).

Gameplay
Currently, your main objective is to shoot as many people as possible. You spawn in the middle of the map in a circle around the tavern. The game begins, but so does the chaos :)
You shoot your opponents by hovering your mouse over them and pressing Q. When you kill them you get some gold, get enough and you can purchase some items in the shop. Version 1 of the map is purely early preview to showcase the power of the underlying engine. The only mode available: FFA.

FFA.
You kill people and get gold for kills. Gold can be spent at the shops to enhance your character. When you die, you lose 1 life. When the count reaches 0, you essentially die and will not respawn. The game ends when there is a sole survivor, hence a victor.

Items
Currently has a bunch of items that can be purchased at the shops at the corners of the map. You gain gold by killing opponents that you can spend in here.
You can get items that:
  • Improve your armor
  • Increase your movement speed
  • Increase your number of projectiles launched by 1.
  • Give you Orb effects (each has different action: blind, corruption, poison, slow)
  • Increase damage and more...

Heroes
Currently 3: Mage, Archer, and Assasin.

Mage is a hard-difficulty class. He can kill a lot of people solo, has serious damage, but low armor.
From active skills he has: Firebolt, Destroy all projectiles on mouse position and Meteorite (launches meteorite at the position, damaging targets for serious damage).
Passives: TRAIT, Fire Curse (negate damage and healing/stun on second cast), Projectile reflection.

Archer is an easy-difficulty class, that has average damage and utility, can seriously mess anyone up and kite very well. She is very strong late game and can blast people with her ultimate badly.
From active skills she has: Arrow, Blink and Charged Arrow (super arrow that hit hard).
Passives: TRAIT, Quick Quiver (Chance to reset arrow cooldown) and bonus armor.

Assasin is a medium-difficulty class, who can run really fast, but also slow her opponents. She possesses slow utilities as well as damage reduction, vampirism, evasion, and armor penetration. Her kit may seem overloaded, but she can only get 4 items instead of 6, like other characters.
From active skills she has: Dagger, Slow bomb and invisibilty.
Passives: TRAIT, bleed (DOT) and bonus movement speed when she is hit (may containt damage reduction consult your doctor before use!)

Generally a nice map similar to Archers and those of the genre. Some projectiles might bounce while hitting a torch and go in an unpredicted direction. Hopefully, more interesting content will come, more zones to play in, maybe generated terrain,...

    Why it says "early preview"?
    Is this still in beta phase?

    Hopefully, more interesting content will come, more zones to play in, maybe generated terrain, classes/heroes, game modes etc.

    You could make the description nicer.

    Approved.

    ADDITIONAL NECESSARY INFORMATION
    • A credits list in the map thread description is required where the names of the resource (models, skins, icons, spells, sound etc.) authors are mentioned along with the specific resource. It would be a luxury to have links leading to the used resources. Credits in the Quest Log would be appreciated too.
    • A detailed changelog in the first post would be helpful to reviewers and notify fans about the newest implementations to your map.
    • Map thread tags are important. Please use those that fit and not more or none.
