Tides of Darkness v1.05

Submitted by Unhit
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
The latest version of an AoS-style map with some RPG elements by Unhit and zwaq, finished now, two years after the previous version and coming with many big changes to it, like a totally new terrain, a new item system and new heroes etc etc. Have fun playing, and if you liked it, please visit us on our forum at http://beam.to/tides =) also if you already knew the previous version(s) you will find the patchlogs etc there (which probably isn't too informative if you haven't played the map before).
So anyway, have fun playing it :)

    This is so much better then DotA or ToB. Hopefully this will become the next popular AoS-style game on b.net.

    Hey,thanks for the positive comment :) (I didn't read it only now, just thought I'd reply).

    Also thanks for these best wishes, but we are certainly experiencing one big problem at the moment: popularity. When I'm hosting the map public it's not such a big problem to get the server full, and when people find out I'm the creator I usually get good feedback. Only the overall amount of servers hosting ToD is small :(

    Well anyway, just my randomg 50 cents :p

    I found the map very very enjoyable to play, but I'd never rehost it 'cause I don't support map protection. It slows down the development of the map making comunity as a whole because every new map maker has to learn everything from scratch. Imagine if every generation mankind had to start over from the stand point of running around butt ass naked in the woods killing rabbits with muddy sticks for survival. Good map though, game play wise.

    I bet this is falling on deaf ears, but this map is no longer compatible because of patch 1.24, and no longer runs.

    Thanks for both the comments, the great compliment and the hint! :) I am well aware of the fact because "unfortunately", this map also used handles. I'll try to fix it once I've got time to do so and once BEER BEER, which has higher priority due to the higher popularity, is fixed.

    Hey there! Yeah, unfortunately our webspace provider has suddenly had troubles or whatever and all our online contents (forum and blog, also with all the news about BEER BEER) was gone. As I did not expect this possibility, there was no backup. Also, as you mentioned, unfortunately that one big patch with the handles also made this map unplayable, but maybe there will be a fix to come, or a new version of it for WarCraft IV ;)
    Thanks for your feedback and message on the map page anyway, even so many years after the first upload!

Optimized with vexorian's optimizer . Have Fun !

    Wow, switchtotems, somehow I only noticed your posts now and didn't get an e-mail-information. I can't express how honoured I feel. I will have a look at your fixed version as soon as possible. Wow, just wow. Thank you so much for your effort!
