    _________________________________________________________________

    Since my finals are over (well, not technically, I've still got 3 to take after I failed them ...) I've decided to return to an old project. But, when I saw freaking triggering and the mess I made, I had to start from the scratch. Since I'm working alone on the project, it'll take awhile before I finish it completely. I do plan to have a working alpha version by the end of February (or beginning of March) where you'll be able to test out principles of the gameplay.

    The map is based around building tons of units and upgrading them. Heroes, although powerful, act more like the supports rather than the main damage dealers (sort of like in WC3 itself). I purposely made the map quite narrow so that every bit of the movement counts. The enemy AI is custom built but it acts solely by the preset commands; I will try to add a certain level of randomness to it, but I'm not that good at making it to begin with.

    For any more questions, please refer either to the board or the private messaging. A few screenshots:

    I think this type of map should be multiplayer instead of sp since small offense type map have little to no replayability and unless you give more information about the "Variety of ways to achieve victory" it will remain as a One-Shot map to me.

    I do wonder though if how many bosses you'll face on a very small map, maybe you can make random bosses with their specific algorithms, drops, etc instead of sticking to specific boss each game so players might think of playing the map again.

    It will initially be only single player map, although I will add a MP mod later on where the 2nd player will control the enemy forces.

    Variety of ways meaning that you can either do a rush-down, upgrade-stall, hero-focus etc. etc. and since there'll be over 60 units and heroes, different builds are possible.

    Regarding the bosses, only the last boss will be specified (The Lich King). If you've ever played WoW:WOTLK, every boss from Icecrown Citadel will have its place here, and custom-scripted battle (I doubt they'll be exactly the same, but there will be similarities), but their appearances will be randomized.
