For centuries the people of Lordaeron and Elvenwood respected a treaty
concerning the mountain pass and trade route between the kingdoms. In a village
along the High Road, a courthouse settled disputes between the people, Elves and
Humans alike. Until recently the magistrates were able to keep the peace. No one
knows for sure how it started but a recent skirmish has erupted into all out war!
The High Road combines gameplay styles from AoS, Standard Melee Wc3, WoW and
RPGs. The main halls of each faction produce 3 fighters every 30 seconds that march
directly for the enemy base, just like classic Dota. However, each player also controls
worker units who can build several standard structures. Once the building is complete,
it will produce its corresponding warrior periodically. For example, the barracks produces
Footmen and the Ancient of War produces Archers. The game is won when one player
destroys the enemy main hall.
Each hero also possesses a "hero bonus" ability, which boosts attributes and speed
temporarily and brings the camera down to a third-person view. This effect can be
reversed by activating it again, the camera returns to normal and the hero's bonus is
removed. This is not an over-drive as it can make gameplay more difficult. It should
be used as a clutch to escape deadly situations, rush back to defend your army or
chase down a fleeing hero.
The High Road - AoS gameplay is fast and addictive, it offers something for everyone!
