Test of Faith v1.11

Submitted by MStylo
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
Melee micro simulator with lots of choice involved.

Fight your everyday foes to earn the gods favor. Manage fate of your units utilizing what's being offered as best as you can.


Map contains no modified or altered units and provides high variety of enemies you get to either encounter or control.
No heroes allowed!


Cannot be played on Reforged graphics right now. Map uses terrain modification triggers which do not bother to work.


Features & Details

-waves are randomly generated out of group of randomed units making every wave unique (following certain patterns)
-waves get stronger over time (set by chosed difficulty)
-several playable game modes adding extra flavour and challenge
-reliably structured rewards after each day


Gameplay Details
-starting food cap is 15 Orc, 16 Human, 17 Undead, 18 Night Elf - gets further modified by selected modes & difficulty
-once you kill all spawned enemies, summons die along with them
-enemy spawns with 200 movement speed which is reset to default as soon as you attack
-you are locked within the circular area - leaving is punished by death
-as soon as 1/3 of enemies remains, you have 50 seconds until whole area gets covered by decay slowly draining 3 + 1% max health & mana/sec (prevents from exploiting but also can be punishing lategame if you lack damage)
-Divine Encouragement - an aura emitted by the Sacred Pillar providing armor and health regen (more effective less units player has - at 4 gets disabled)


Difficulty Settings
Easy - Starting army: Starting food supply bonus: 4, Enemy strength level increases every 7 days, Enemy has 60% chance for a random research every day.
Normal - Starting army: Starting food supply bonus: 2, Enemy strength level increases every 5 days, Enemy has 75% chance for a random research every day.
Hard - No starting food supply bonus, Enemy strength level increases every 3 days, Enemy has 100% chance for a random research every day.


Tips


-Cannibalize as well as any channeling gets interrupted while reward selection window opens
- the "+" and "-" next to rewards are shown if the reward somehow affects your current challenge (Challenges mode)
-Draenei Seer(6), Harpy Queen(7), Infernal(8), Queen of Suffering(10), Infernal Juggernaut(10) & all the Dragons(10) are unobtainable unless "-allcreeps" command is turned on
-if you reach to a point whilst you're playing Queen of Suffering and your army gets much more massive than the enemy, game starts to rise up enemy level by 2 every day
-check Help(F9) for useful commands





Reward System

How it works:
Every rolled Forces in rewards have 20%(+1% per research) chance to belong to a research you already own. For example to increase chances for a Necromancer you need either Necromancer Adept/Master Training or Skeletal Mastery.
Researches have 30% chance to be tied to a unit you currently own. Starting with Archers & Huntresses is quite likely to offer Strength of the Moon.
Aid options increase chances to recieve healing as an option if your army is low on health. If Sacred Pillar is lower than 10%, chance to repair it takes over.
Summoned units are not considered by any reward.

Options to recieve new units get hidden as soon as you have no spare food. Instead, you get offered food supply.

This is not altered melee (please remove this tag). It's Strategy/Risk and Defense/Survival, more of the latter. No player colour change? Could work better with more players too. "Our allied town is under siege!" spam. Does food supply count? I mean...

    You're welcome! I'm glad to help. :)

    2. In that case, you could forcibly drop the items from the troublesome units with a warning message telling that it's for the better. That way there will be no need in the general warning when an Orb is picked the first time. This technique would require a list of items as well as a list of unit-types. Also it's generally better to drop the item to the exact spot where it's been on the ground by storing it's coordinates upon pick up so it will not move anywhere when spammed to pick up.
    4. Both. Either it's very close to the Pillar's foundation or it is obstructed by the Pillar, when the item spawns to the north of it. I think that moving the spawn circle/rectangle to the forefront of the Pillar will make it more clear in general.

    I've tested the reincarnation thing and attached a test map (jass). DeathEvent fires before the UnitEvent, so the latter acts as a lock for the decision about the reincarnation-death.
    However it doesn't account for multiple units of this kind. You'd just need an array for that.

    Just a quick thing to say, i really dislike the fact that items vanish when a unit dies with them, it makes the game really annoying especially in the late game when everything is so chaotic and u can lose units very easily.

    It pains me to see that for exemple even tho i managed to beat a hard level having lost only 1 unit, only to notice the fact that unit had lots of items on it resulting in me losing half of my total sum of items i managed to gather in the whole game/round, losing lots of progress.:ogre_rage:

    I suggest making the items drop on the ground when the units die, similar to when you choose to sacrifice them.

    I replayed the game on this latest patch, on hard with everything ON, the game is sure harder now, my highest "score" was getting to week 8, day 6 so far.

    Another thing i noticed is the fact that the "random forces" choice has been nerfed somehow, from picking this reward 10 times, i only got 1 good unit from it once (chimera), the rest 9 times i only got low level useless units like murlocs,footman,banshees,etc.

    You're not the first person to mention these items not dropping on death. I will probably do it as you suggest and make them fall on the ground.

    Random forces have not been touched. The way it works it has fixed level of units it randomizes from. Days 2,4,5 are level 2 or 3 (level 2 always includes healing or mana), days 3,6 are level 4 and day 7 is level 5. That means you can random chimaera only on day 7.

    No worries! I decided to get the current version!

    if you don't mind me asking, what is the difference between the difficulty levels?

    Easy raises enemy level every 7 days, Normal every 5 and Hard every 3 levels. Plus enemies get researches faster. It's said up here in the Features & Details description ^^

    Nice map. Looking forward new updates! (co-op mode or victorious mode could be the best)

    Also, I don't find decay timer, which I read in F9 "Good to know" list, what is it anyway?
    Some units like chimaera can't trigger corrupt orb effect.
    "-air" deals lots of damages, but hope to add a tip in game. I don't know this command and quit the game first time.

    other things:
    My best hard record is week 7 day 3. But I always stuck in week 6.
    I need a lot of luck to survive, once some high level units spwan it'll be very hard to defend, like gryphon riders and level 10 creeps.

    And when i use undead i always get "cannibalize" instead of "web" tech, which is very strange, without web ud can only type -air.
    So I recommend "orc" race because berserker upgrade is very common, which makes orc very easy to defend the first 2 weeks, and "200 heal" keeps berserkers good states.
    About sacrifice I only recommend "satyr hell caller" bacause he is chaos melee+animate dead+unholy aura+bloodlust. Melee unit can use vampiric aura to heal itself. After sacrifice the defence force is weak, the only thing should do is recruit units.

    Thanks for feedback.

    Decay is just a mechanism against exploiting in order to regenerate. You don't need to be bothered by it's unless are unnecessarily extending the fight.
    Thanks for pointing out the chimaera. There is a warning about orbs for every unit that has splash or bounce within it's attacks I just forgot to include chimaera.
    "-air" was thinking about that before. Will add it.

    Week 7 day 3 is not bad all. Yes game can get difficult and rng can screw you over at that point :D

    Chances to get any research tied to your units are equal. You must have gotten unlucky getting cannibalize alot.

    Devouring unit with Kodo causes round to not move forward, eventually resulting in all units dying from decay

    It works for me in every case. Have you got a replay?

    No replay saved, but it may have just been an unlucky rare bug, I'd devoured a unit beforehand and the round went forward.
    Then the second time it stopped, which is when all units died from decay.

    Maybe add in a command to simply progress the round in rare cases like that?
    I was using latest version of War3 and the latest version of the mod I had DLed the same day I posted the comment, for reference.
    Items were on, food decay was off, health for obelisk was off... and difficulty... well, that's not really important...
    It was easy.

    I'll make sure to get a replay if it happens again . But yeah, a command to force end a round would definitely be nice.

    Sucks I can't tell what caused it. And even if I add command for instant clear it could keep happening :/ Will keep an eye out tho.

    You acually made me laugh about mentioning the difficulty :D I was thinking to make obelisk permanently destructible but I can see people are playing it.

    Can you make a version where you always get queen of suffering for sacrificing all units? It would be so much fun try it :D

    I love the map! It's sad that orbs don't give units chance to attack air. Options for range attackers are a bit rare. Can we get super easy mode as well?

    You are on point it is often tricky to have enough anti-air especially after you sacrifice all units. I will think of something to improve it. Yes I can add an extra difficulty.

    The queen is back but not in such glorious fashion as to have her every week. :D Added "-allcreeps" command which opens up possibilities to get all the rest of creeps.

    I've played this map and although its fun to play it needs quite a balance update.
    In my testing I've loaded specific savegames several times before a wave spawn to see how balanced they are,- it doesn't seem to be quite fair.
    Sometimes you get like 5 small units which are easily manageable, another time I get a mountain giant, chimera and casters which hex my army and kill it shortly.

    If I were to update this map to make it more fair I guess I would try to randomize spawns not on the food capacity but rather on the gold cost, which is a better indicator. (Food cost is too inaccurate)
    Another thing would be to only unlock high food units after specific waves, which makes it a bit more fair.

    Overall an excellent idea and well executed map.

    It randomizes based on level. Sure two footmen are way easier than a knight in lategame scenario but overall it's fair on average. And you have to get punished by rng at some point that's how the map in it's core works.

    That's exactly how it works. Mountain Giants won't spawn anytime sooner than enemy level is at least 15. So on hard it's at least week 4 day 6 you get a giant earliest (unless you increase enemy level yourself by failing a challenge).

    I get your point but I feel like the map accomplishes something that not many other maps do. You get to face nearly any warcraft 3 unit in always unexpected fashion. A bit of rng Chimaera is a reasonable price for all the replayability.

    Is it possible for me to edit the map to add in a starting hero ? I've played the map a lot and really like it but i wanted to see what it would be like if i had a hero at the start, i've tried editing the map in wc3 editor (i've never made/edited a map in my life) and the problem i was running into was that everytime i tried to save the map it wouldn't save because it needed to generate starting locations and if i do that the map just breaks

    Is it possible to somehow bypass that or is that something that isn't allowed ? Sorry if it's a stupid question, i have no idea how wc3 maps work.

    I would ask if you could add a "hero" gamemode but i don't want to bother you with things like that since it might be too hard to implement/something you don't want to do.
