    In my opinion the hunters are too weak, i need 15 seks to kill a tower and the turtle build up 1 in 10 secs to the upgrade I am about to kill ...

    and the creep killing is senseless, instead of hunting all go hunt those creeps... for one level.

    BUt at all I must say it's well done

    Hmm, seems there's something wrong here. Twice in a row orange and purple got disconnected at the start of the game, said it was an error that shut WC3 down. Orange was the same guy both times, but purple wasn't. Might want to look at the triggers.

    Also, something came up last game, the frogs could make a second one of themselves. I was naga so I didn't see exactly how, but they did something to make a 2nd wisp when they were captured, then both were rescued. Only the frogs could do this, and when one frog was caught both of them disappeared so it's something they did post-capture. Sorry that I don't have details but they didn't feel like sharing them with a naga, so that's all I've got. Might want to look into that, too.


    Not sure if you fixed it or not in this version, but I observed something like the first problem in 2.3. Sometimes at the start of the game it would show the message that someone had left the game then the fish would win, not even a second into the game. I haven't played enough games of 2.4 yet to see if it's still there, as it seems pretty random, but it doesn't seem your fixes included it so I thought I'd bring it up.

    Orange being the same guy twice definetly makes me think it was his fault.

    Purple, that is strange. There is nothing in the triggers that would crash someone, especially not just purple or orange.

    I appreciate you bringing it up, but knowing the triggers, I just have to attribute it to random bad luck. Especially since I have never encountered it.

    Ok, I take that back about the duplication being frogs only. After several more games I've seen crabs, sea dragons, and others do it too. Just happened that that game the only two who did it were frogs. But I can still say that they do it after being captured, perhaps via a mirror image or something to that effect.

    Yup

    I am fixing the bug for the next version.

    It is related to making a mirror image of a wisp. Releasing fixed version later tonight.

    Lol, I'll start doing that :).

    Anyway,

    Alright, for 2.5 I want to introduce game modes!

    So far I have two modes:

    Coin Mode: Gold banks are disabled completly. Instead, gold coins are spawned around the map randomly and these are the income for Fish.

    Flag Mode: A flag is spawned. The Fish who picks it up gets insane cash flow. However, everyone becomes an enemy of the fish and gets vision of him.


    But, I want more modes! So please, brainstorm ideas and let me hear your thoughts!

    Version 2.5 will also feature a new spell for the Sea Giant, replacing that armor reducing one.

    There is an additional game mode, short mode. It halves the time, doubles the gold and xp, halves the building time and building hp too. Should be intense!

    Coin mode is changed too: It still spawns coins like before but now you lose 5 gold a second and if you run out of gold you die!

    I have some custom sounds and all the tooltips and such have been redone in full color!

    Releasing it this weekend. Its going to be sweet!

    I've been on a fan-site( not the sites that are about the fans that blow air :? ). Anyways back to the topic, Karawasa's map is excellent and I do say it is better than Sheep Tag, the game that is overpopular and was getting pretty old a long time ago,. Although, I hardly see it hosted on BNET Azeroth( U.S. East ). I think it'd be better if it was popular than seeing it only 1 time every week.

    P.S. - In the Summer, I might be trying out Diablo and Diablo 2 so don't expect my presence on BNET or McDonalds, Bara Bum Bum Bah I'm loving it(not).

    What you can do is host it and spread the word about it as much as possible. The more people that try the game, the more popular it will get!

    i have to say i really like this map. its one of the better tag games ive played. the only complaint i have is the blink dagger that nagas can buy. its not so expensive for what it does. there really is no hiding if the nagas have a blink dagger, they can just blink into anyones base and easily kill.

    other than that the map is fantastic and very fun

    i try to host it when i can :lol:

    I am glad you like it, and I am delighted to hear you are hosting it!

    As for Blink Dagger, the trick is to build your base so that there is only one space between farms. Naga cannot Blink into your base if they would be unable to move around in it.
