The Races


Races
Races
A small list of pros and contras for each race can by seen ingame.
WoW
The World of Warcraft race was my first race for this TD and somehow just for testing. Now it's more a fun race and contains towers from MC,BWL and AQ.

Outland Alliance
The Outland Alliance contains the bloodelf forces of Prince Kael'thas and the Nagas controlled by Lady Vashj. Their leader is Illidan under the cotroll of Kil'jaeden.

Scourge
The scourge race contains some of the mightiest ingame towers. The scourge is commanded by Arthas and his minions.
Hint: Some of the Scourge towers need 4x4 squares.

Nature
Under the command of the druids and keepers the nature sends gnolls, trolls and spiders into battle.
Hint: The towers are not directly builded - build a dwelling and upgrade it

Demons
The demons are a part of the burning legion. They send phaseshifters which can create rifts and portals to summon more and stronger demons to unknown territory.
Hint: The towers are not directly builded - build a portal/rift and upgrade it

Creeps
The creeps are tamed by mighty Tamers. They select the strongest creeps and lead them to battle.
Hint: The tamer requires upgrades from his tamer camp to build improved towers.

Goblins
The goblins are very well known in all explosive things. They use rockets, mines and bombs to stop their enemies. Their leader is Armageddox who gives everything for a good war.
Hint: The goblins require upgrades from their HQ to build improved towers.

Underworld
The underworld forces are commanded by Vor'tax the Shadowking. He leads his minions from the shadows to the mortal world. The underworld race has many powerful spells.

Nightelfs
The nightelfs send their ambassadors to dangerous regions and they will decide which troops are needed for the battle. The nightelfs have powerful spells and strong creatures.

Mercenaries
Daelin Proudmoore survived the battle with Rexxar and is now collecting new forces to lead his forces into battle for the one who pays the most money. They are also able to forge mighty weapons.

Soultemplar and Keeper
The Soultemplars were a secret order of the Silverhand. They devoted their lifes to the Soulpower, a power that inhabits every being, and they found a way to controll it. The Leaders of the Silverhand banished the Templars from the ranks of the Silverhand after their greed for the power has become to big and they started killing people and other beings to drain their power and convert it for their purposes. During and after the third war of Azeroth the public knowing about the Templars faded because they somehow disappeared and were rarely seen. There were only rumors about them left and the most common rumor was that they returned to their roots as paladins and use the Soulpower in addition to the power of the light. But they also had to survive and so they started to teach everyone who paid for it the use of Soulpower but never how to create it. These people and beings from every race and/or dimension became the Soulkeepers a mercanery like army that is lead by the Soultemplars. They fight to protect their knowledge, increase their might and prevent other forces from using the Soulpower. Now they return from their secret monastary because one who once belonged to them is unleashed and wants revenge for his banishment. The other races of Azeroth accepted their help for this fight even if no one knows their real plans..



Story


Story
Prelude
A little prelude for the map.

What happend so far:
1 year ago: An unknown army lead by the Corrupted Council started an invasion in Azeroth. - They didn't conquer land but took thousands of prisoners.

10 months ago: Kil'jaeden discovered the real purpose behind the kidnapping of so many people and creatures. The Lichs of the Corrupted Council found the Prison of Upadoro, an ancient Demon Lord, in the Forgotten Plain of the four Edges. The Forgotten Plain is a small realm between Azeroth and the chaotic world of Upadoro. The goal of the Council is clear: They want to sacrifice all the prisoners and feed their souls to Upadoro so he can reopen the gate between the Forgotten Plain and his world.

6 months ago: The leaders of Azeroth met in a congress and decided that the most important issue of Azeroth will be the prevention of the ritual.

4 months ago: The Lichking found a clue of an Ancient Gate that leads from Azeroth to the Forgotten Plains in a book he had stolen from Dalaran.

3 months ago: The United Forces of Azeroth and even other races like the Demons agreed to plan and then start the offensive against the Corrupted Council.

2 weeks ago: The Council Forces at the Ancient Gate were slain. The Gate was still active but the connection between Azeroth and the Forgotten Plain was nearly gone.

Today: Azerothian reinforcments arrive at the Gate. Mages of every kind were able to empower the gate but it is still very weak and only allows a few troops to enter it one-by-one.

    I played the game and here is my results:

    Good sides:
    - Map is very well made
    - Towers are balanced and they have good information
    - Item towers were nice and unique idea
    - TD with a little story, great!
    Bad sides:
    - Team mode is not good, because everyone have their own creep lines and it's stupid to help allies, if there were some kind of line between allies, then team would be nice
    - Solo mode frustrated me, because I have to wait others...
    - I played first 15 min. I even reached level 3, wow, and this TD have 50 waves...
    - The game was too easy. Everyone except me took easy, and more than half of the people left of boring, not because they lost the game!
    - 2 players lost because of invisible units, I'm still wondering how did I see them...
    - After level 33, it was bit boring, because I build only ultimate towers

    Suggestions:
    - Try to make better solo mode so people don't need to wait others

    BTW. Meantime when I was playing, I went to shit one time, piss two times, pick up some food two times, pick up some drink three times. And guess what. I went to fuck myself four times. This all tells you that you should really do something about the solo mode. Especially, when you are playing with beginners that are building almost in the middle!

    thanks for your comment, i will try to improve it.

    the invisible units spawn at level 22 and the paladin tower level 2/3 can see them. i hoped a hint, red letters in the upgrade description and the random tip are enough to show the people that they have to upgrade it.

    After my test on Battle.net I got this:
    The good:
    -Good terrain
    -Good balancing, although goblins seem to be a little better then the other races
    -All around, good TD

    The bad:
    -Not enoguh time to pick your race at the beginning
    -You start at the end of your maze, as a beginner, you'll naturally build there and then have to wait forever for the creeps to come on every level
    -Goblins are slightly overpowered
    -The mazes are to big, so waiting for the creeps naturally gets boring
    -You only get enough money to build a few towers
    -All players can pick their own difficulty, so people just pick easy and win
    -No one could figure out how to figtht the invis levels
    -There was a typo in a tooltip for one of the Wow race towers (sorry, don't remember which one)

    I think this is a really nice map: yeah, you need more time at start and a solo mode where timer starts when you finished your line...
    but I really like some original features (tower-item when boss dies; Focus Fire ability) nice descriptions (also on armor & attack types)
    but it gets boring after a while... it isn't your fault, it's in (almost) any TD

    hey
    long time no update but here is a new version. it doesn't really offer many new things. but i think i have the time to do put some work in it now.

    the first goal will be a better solo mode with single player spawns, so that you are not delayed by players who need more time to finish the wave.
    a better team mode will require some more effort. maybe it will be an additional map with a new design to allow real teamgaming.

    never noticed that before. and never happened during my tests.
    maybe you just leaked one and the level 1 mobs are very slow.

    i tried to make the map loading faster by using widgetizer but it always moved all the hotkeys to other places. i tried the option which says "don't overwrite the object data with customkey data" but it doesn't work.
    any tips about that?

    yeah im still working on it but i don't have a lot of time at the moment. so it takes a bit for a new version.

    but the avatar should be easy because he has only 100000 mana and after that his mana shield is broken. the vengeance tower 3 has a mana burn ability.
