Void Arena v3

Submitted by TheSpoon
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
--==VOID ARENA==--

DESCRIPTION:

So this is a little map I made for my clan, but I reckon some other people might enjoy it too (so I made it more public).

If anything the game is worth playing for the wonderful/interesting terrain!

What you do is fight with other heroes for 15 minutes; build up an ideal inventory for your hero, then 1v1 with every other player, and lastly play an elimination match. The player with the highest score at the end is the victor!

So find a few friends, pick a game mode (-ar recommended) and have fun, the game lasts approx. 30 minutes.

At the moment most the spells are blizz-based, in the future I aim to give all the heroes interesting skill-based spells! ie. Can be dodged/evaded. I also plan to add new round types, (boss, team, survival). And random events!

VERSION: v3

UPDATES:
- New items
- Bugs Fixed
- Balancing
- Pawn Shop at end of Rounds
- Junk Shop hanging around
- MinWoo. new hero
- Hotkeys on all spells

HINTS & TIPS:
- There are 3 game modes to choose as the first player slot (All pick, All random and Clan)
- Clan mode is not recommended as the hero that corresponds to your name is spawned
- Gold is gained over time, but you can also pawn items you do not want.
- Experience is gained only from attacking enemy units (half exp for non-heroes)
- In free for all, when a hero dies, a random inventory slot is dropped to the ground.
- The Marketplace sells low-level permanent items.
- The Merchant sells low-level potions and tomes.
- Every 45 seconds the shops change locations.
- Random items are given by using your ability on voidshards - high level items are rarer.
- The Junk shops sells items that have recently been pawnt by other players.
- Use your spells to get the last hit on enemy heroes to steal score.

SCREENIES:

    So a terrain can be good and bad at the same time?
    And btw a 3/5 for terrain are you serious?
    Terrain wise this easily gets a 5/5, Ill play a few more times to get a feel of game balance.

    Alright, Imma review this :D

    Originality: It's a Hero Arena, so, it's similar to many other hero arenas, but it still has many unique aspects/elements. 5/5
    Concept: Awesome concept, and very well-executed. 5/5
    Description [TWH]: Good description, though, screenshots (that will come soon, according to description) would be nice. Also, (currently) lacks credits :/ 3/5
    Description [In-game]: It's good (and lulzy.) 3/5
    Grammar: Perfect Grammar. (except Suggested Players, which should be "Teams Don't Matter" imo) 5/5
    Triggering: Seems fine to me. I'm no expert at detecting leaks (if there are any) so... 4/5
    Spells: Many Blizzard/WC3 Spells. 4/5
    Tooltips: Blizzard-like tooltips (for Custom abilities). 4/5
    Credits: Proper credits given. 3/5
    Gameplay: Simple to understand and enjoyable, like other hero arenas. Though, the unique aspects make it more enjoyable than others imo xP But, heroes have 3 abilities only, and Attribute bonus...:/ No ultimate? Probably for balance reasons, I guess. 4/5
    Quality: High quality :D 5/5
    Replayability: You can stay engaged in the map for a while, I guess. 4/5
    Balance: Pretty balanced. 4/5
    Terrain: One word: EPIC - can't say anything more :D 5/5
    Violates the Rules?: Nope. 5/5

    Overall Rating: 63/75 = 4/5 = Vote for Approval and +rep.

    Rating System
    Unrated: 0 – 9 = Vote for Rejection + Map Reported.
    1/5: 10 - 20 = Vote for Rejection + Map maybe Reported.
    2/5: 21 – 40 = Vote for Rejection or no vote + Maybe reported.
    3/5: 41 – 55 = No vote, not reported, no rep.
    4/5: 56 – 65 = Vote for Approval and maybe + Rep.
    5/5: 66+ = Vote for Approval + Rep.


    Pros:
    + Enjoyable, with epic terrain...and stuff xP

    Cons:
    - No credits.

    Notes:
    Some score-screen icons are...different rather than the ones in-game, like yours is Draenei Harbinger, while in the SS it's Mountain King. Also, no Quests log to help newbies? But then, it's simple I guess....it's deathmatch, I mean. But still, Credits in it and something would be nice. Oh, and if you fixed backswing points and those things it'd be nice xP A bit better syncing in attacks/spell-casting...

    Well lots of quick in depth reviews, I'm very grateful : >

    I'll just respond to a couple specific things:
    "Spells 1/5 (You use blizzard spells)
    Heroes 3/5 ( Some heroes have only 3 spells)"
    - Yea - more to come in that department.

    "Items 2/5 ( Some items you created and other are blizzard items )"
    - Not going to add much more here.

    "Do you mean normal wc3 spells? Anyways looking forward for those screenshots of the interesting terrain. "
    - I can do some world editor ones straight away

    "except Suggested Players, which should be "Teams Don't Matter" imo"
    - That was the maximum characters, I couldn't think of anything better D:
    Maybe "No Teams" would be better.

    "Some score-screen icons are...different rather than the ones in-game"
    - I might quickly make a blank icon for all of them - Because its not really worth the effort making them for all the heroes.

    "no Quests log to help newbies"
    - Might put credits and stuff in there - I can't really think of that much more to say really.

    "Oh, and if you fixed backswing points and those things it'd be nice xP A bit better syncing in attacks/spell-casting"
    - Oh, yea I can just copy them from the original units.


    Gonna update the description now.
    EDIT: Done

    . . .

    Gonna get to work on the next ver now.
    Expect:
    - Some balances
    - AP mode fixed, (and other bugs)
    - Some new items
    - Some more terrain features
    - Quests/general tidy up

    Could you list the game modes and commands, cause I got no idea.

    This would be a nice improvement. Need it :D

    Add some custom models. You'll have a much better chance of getting the map approved if you do. Since there's already a lot of hero arena maps out there.

    Even thought the arena looks nice it is still not good in gameplay wise because you basically cant use terrain while fightning its just a flat.

    Oho, nice map.
    Things I like :
    -Terrain. Terrain is extremely awesome. Maybe(or must) you should participate the terraining contest. And I like the nether drakes flying around and other stuffs. 10/5
    Things I don't like :
    -Heroes. <-- Maybe I should not discuss this, cause I know you know what is the problem. (I'm a boy that very hates blizz-based skills) 1.5/5
    -Items. Too "bit". But read your post before, I'm not too disputed this. (And blizz-based) 2.5/5
    Hope next version will be better! 3/5

    Looks like an intresting map.

    The terrain looks insane! I love the whole idea of the shops fading out and switching from pleases. Only the tooltips needs some colour, and the heroes some better abilities.
    But overall a lovely map!
