Terenas Stand (8 races) v1.5 (Map)

08:24, 24th May 2008 Firelord213: The map is OK and it looks like you have put lots of effort in it. But this map isn't really balanced and could need some more rebalancing. Like the Mechanical race has no standard ranged unit etc.. *Approved*

hmm.. u shuld make the same map for at least 4-6 players..it's good but inbalenced and a bit buggy.
1.when i picked alliance i chose the hero with the auras,and when i activated his aura to add attack.. the hero was blocked(didnt move , cast spell,etc.) i had to kill him so i can revive him..
2.when i picked mechanichals,the hero ''The Demolisher'' when i cativated his ability demolish he was also blocked..
3.With one hero(i dont know who) when i tryed to make blood elemental.. he was water elemental..
4.with the mage race, when i made the 3 reverents(the ones that can make elementals) one of the elementals didnt show on the map..

1.the Mages were really strong, i culd kick ass with 'em.
2.The mechanicals hero called "lummberjack" he can summon those workers BUT in the last level they give a BIG amount of lummber and gold.. i killed all other workers and i just made those kind of workers... + THEY require NO FOOD!(u shuld make that they require at least 4-5 food at last level :S:S)
3.when i picked the naga race, at the starting barracks i had only Melee units ( makuras and crabs) i think i shuld have 1 melee and 1 ranged unit kind..

this was all for now, i hope u will fix those little bugs and take a look at my addvices :D:D anyways i really liked the icons and spells u did a great job with this map :p i enjoyed playing. . .
i didnt try to host on Bnet still...
the map overall is 3.5 or 4/5 gj..

thx very much knight26...about the hero with the auras, i knew those heroes freeze but i hit "stop" and then they worked...this bug is also in starcraft, when u right click too many times dragoons may freeze, if u play starcraft u would know:D and i thought "the hell with with" i was too lazy to fix those bugs cuz i had to remake the ability...u can understand:D but i will fix that. about the demonic shaman with the blood elemental...i guess i forgot to fix it, i have noted down that bug, but..i don't know what's the problem there cuz i have set the colors of those water elementals to 255 R 0 G 0 B and still they appear normal...(oh and the real blood elementals i used, a model i downloaded long time ago from wc3sear.ch doesn't work if u upload it on the map, it has to be put in the war.mpq or any mpq, that's why i gave up that model)

about the lumberjack with the workers, hey, is hard to make lvl 5 at an ability, and considering what the rest of the abilities at level 5 can do...i think that isn't imbalanced at all, besides, when i was playing warcraft (a long time ago, now i play only starcraft:D ) if i got the hero at level 6 i was like :O wow. understand?:D

about the naga ranged unit...i'll make the crab ranged

and the mages...well i do not know what to say about them...like i said, i didn't quite had the chance to test it properly, with a friend or somebody...if u have any suggestions about them plz tell

Atlantean test:
Yes indeed, the race is complete but there are many bugs, unbalanced things and others that can be improved. I'll give you a full list of them, and some possible solution:

- Makrura's evolution is an awesome idea, but you should add some effect to it, because they simply pop out when you use the spell. Add a "Rejuvenation" effect model on it and give it some cast time, and it will be really cool.
- I agree with Knight26, you should add more ranged units to this race, for example make one of the melee murlocs into a ranged one with piercing attack.

- Royal Myrmidon is quite fine, but personally I would change it's buff to increase regeneration into an aura... This is only a suggestion, do whatever you want.
- Elemental of the Depths' Tidal slam isn't available when you get it, check that you have removed all required upgrades to use it. About the auras, I dissaprove that they have a duration and have to be activated. The slowing one can be accepted as a spell, but the one that summons elementals has no logic at all because when it runs out the count of hits needed to summon an elemental restarts, so it's nearly impossible to get one because it's a ranged hero and 30 hits is way too much. Reduce the hits required and make it a passive ability. Or just make it a normal summon, quite easier.
- Priest of Atlantis is the most bugged and unbalanced of all, I must say; his Tremor Totem doesn't work at all, check the triggers and the ability. Azhara's anger spell doesn't work and it's not adecuate for a melee map, because if it did work, you can't limit the effect of a spell to only one race, you can't be sure that you will play against a night elf. Personally, I would remove this spell.
- Curse of the Depths is too destructive... You can destroy a full army with that... and with only one hero. You should make it similar to the Death and Decay spell, a damage over time in an area.

I will continue to play the map with different races and tell you everything I can so you can improve this map, because it has a great potential and because I love to play and make altered melee maps.

Please don't feel offended by anything I said above, it is only to improve your map, I really look forward to see it completely balanced and playable! :infl_thumbs_up: +Rep anyways.

Try not using any custom skins/models at all. For example, use a purple murloc for the Murloc Shadomancer unit, instead of the hero one you have now.
I'm working on my next report, but I have exams too... So I'll have to avoid entering Hive for a week:cry: They such a pain in the ***... :nemad:

I try the map, then summons a hero, then it is written "Victory", and then its over. It happens both with, and without heroes. So I cant play this map with a hero. And when I try to open it in World Editor it comes a warning, something about to small memory (I have 3 GB RAM, 1k GB harddisk), and then world editor shuts down. Except for the heroes I did really like mages and demons, but the mechanicals I think you could take away. 3/5

Is there something missing?

Don't know if i just "cant find it" but i don't think theres any cybernetics facility on the machines team, when it states that theres an upgrade and a unit that requires this building.

EDIT:The Archon Consutate Have an item in their shop that requires a castle.

EDIT:The Legion Of The Damned:Flame Potion says "well Spilled" Think it should say "when spilled" "Dmonary Shop" Probably should be "Demonary Shop" Also Fire Potion Says it creates a flame where as a gravestone appears.

EDIT:No Bugs Visable From The Lost Athlin Empire.

All in all you must have put some hard work into this map,and I'm looking forward to future versions to test.

i think, you wan to do is more or less like this:

Creep Rebellion - Gnoll Wood

look for it here and test it out, its more or less balanced and computers can also play the new race, how?, it´s simple copy the IA normal things in one race and replace them using the new race units.
hope it helps you.

why the hell would anyone want to play against a computer, who is limited, has no inteligence, no ability to surprise, works on a perfect schedule, nothing new, nothing fun:|

i simply can't understand you people...you can play this on bnet with real people, who are inventive, who think, who can create various strategies, who are DYNAMIC.

i made an AI for this map, you can see that if you try playing it with a computer. I made that so i can test some things, and THE COMPUTER DOES NOT EVOLVE. Know why? Because if you change i minor detail it can't work.

I will not make an AI that works for this map because of what i said before. If you like it this way, play it, if not, i don't care


Oh. and somebody asked me to make it on a 4 player map, that i will do...very soon

You mean, the blank error window right after starting the map (the one with only red exclamation mark)? Some people posted this problem before here and here.
If it's right, then some said you must rename the actual filename for the map for the map or reinstalling the whole game.

Great map - saw Grubby's vid. Does this map work against the computer AI?
If you want to enjoy the experience with the custom races, you must play it with the friends on LAN. Unfortunately, this also means you have to use the other methods to do a multiplayer since Blizzard shuts down the official server for the Classic game following the arrival of Reforged.
AI doesn't seem to use the custom race features, nor the in-game mechanics. They will just play with normal races.
If you want to make AI use the custom races, then I would prefer Ultimate Battle mod instead.

Doesn't work on v1.29 for me. I would like AI but understand why you might disagree, it's just that I play solo but just wanted to say that it doesn't load on my version if anyone was curious.

The map shows up, just gets stuck at like 20% loading and need to force quit.
