Awesome game! Hope to see this game continued into Reforged!
Yes, Survival Chaos is one of my favourite maps, I inspired from it. But War of Races has tons of differences on gameplay. (Like controllable heroes, neutral buildings to capture, building slots, team game etc.) Of Course its similar, but not same.survival chaos vibe anyone?
Awesome game! Hope to see this game continued into Reforged!
Nice to hear! Can't waitSingleplayer tested it and found it interesting. Will need further test though to give a verdict.
It has potential, and to be honest, just confused about the victory since I haven't ransacked everything yet completely. For now, I have to set this to Awaiting Update to let your have a check on these issues, especially the last one.
- I suggest running a player check if the current slot is occupied by a user player or not. Kind of annoying when I try to test with AI in singleplayer.
- Some races have their building selection order as Barrack-Hall-Tower while some other has Hall-Barrack-Tower. This is if you select them in multiple selection using SHIFT+Double-Click.
- Allied player cannot use their Special Weapon to enemy in singleplayer mode, also applies to enemies. Says 'Must explore there first' - Checked replay, seems vision related since player 1 control all players causing a mess with visual perception in singleplayer test.
- Guldan stops moving after using Corrupted Blast unless given another order or stunned.
- I suddenly get victory before the last base was destroyed. Anyway, replay's attached. See the endpoint where it abruptly pause and then stops (the victory screen pops there).
Also, is this Alpha or Beta?
EDIT : Talk about updating while I was reviewing
Reverted back to Pending.
Gnolls should never be underestimated.

Hi, well I disagree on your "ultimate weapon" sentence. You can easily counter it with teching masonry which is way more cheaper when compared to rushing it. For Menag, it's getting some nerf in next patch its true. For hero attack air, it's bug and yeah it will get fix soon.This is nice map but some things are very unbalanceb such as posibility of fireing ultimate weapon after less than 20 minutes the agility heroes abbilities also need rewor and centraly Meang ultimate becouse it breaks game. There is also bug where naga strenght hero can't attack flying units but all other heroes can

This map was really popular on Battlenet when I was playing earlier last year, and I am guessing it still is. It gives an interesting twist to the traditional send-wave-at-enemy type game.
3 players per side is perfect number to keep it large enough to have many people, but small enough so there are not too many waves being sent, which would otherwise make it difficult to counter units because of the chaos. The hero element is really clever, and makes the game a ton more interesting.
Basically, if given time, the entire community who plays Castlefight might just move onto this map, because it is a huge improvement in the right direction for this genre of map.
Great job Uyarrr.
First of all it's nice to hear and thank you for your feedback ^^Hey there. I've played this map quite a lot with a friend and we found it interesting and engaging as we play all random. However certain mechanics and heroes feel overwhelmingly bad to play against.:
Malfurion/Lady Vashj - The range of root and its duration is beyond annoying, super easy to set up a kill with it and deals hefty damage. Playing any other hero for night elves feels like handicapping yourself and your whole team. Later on he may drop on worth but generally he is strong since early levels. As for Vashj her ultimate feels like improved Magtheridon's and the mana barrier has too high absorption value, making dealing with her often impossible unless you catch her doing some kind of mistake that is the only way to kill her.
Gnoll / Orc poisons vs titans - They are just shredding through the titan the moment they are allowed to stack their poison on it for two seconds. No matter how big wave you send with a titan and how high level it hasthe poison seems to completely neglect titan's resistances and each tick just devours its healthbar as if it was a snack.
Human Headshot / Bandit Bribe - One of the most annoying mechanics that are unfun to deal with in any way. It is completely rng that you can't really deal with unless you play super chunky race like demon/naga or push your lane with support of your hero to minimize the impact of these effects. I am aware that Headshot has health cap and bribe only works on living creatures but being able to immediately deal with enemy's unit by one lucky hit feels bad and cheap.
Blizzard of Humans / Ice Trolls - Completely random, completely unfun and can win a lane on its own if it lands at proper place in early game. If lucky blizzard happens then the enemies have much more flexibility in their movements while scuffing the whole enemy team. It is especially brutal against races with low health pools and can make them lose hard for majority of the match. Also could the blizzard not damage buildings? It just feels a bit weird when it nearly reclaims a building on its own.
Caster AI and their spell priority - I have to say it feels absurd to try and help push your lane with minions but then have enemy casters just focus you with their spells and chasing you -hard- into the lane just to get their night elf root/gnoll fireball stun/demon death coil. They constantly wear you down with spells and are even able to kill you if they go hard on you with their spells. Hiding behind all the minions of mine or in between them doesn't change their priority, often making the counter push annoying if not straight up impossible.
Except for these things I have to say that the map is really enjoyable, just bad matchup can be so insanely frustrating that I'm sometimes not surprised with people just leaving the game.
Edit.: Forgot to post about two things that also were on my mind but escaped.:
Special Weapon - Feels cheap and non-interactable. Just once enemies get vision with their mortar towers they can just yeet your barracks into the dark realm to shut down your possibilities of coming back, even if you get masonry to level 3.
Human priests - Can they not heal for so much so often and be able to revive other units? They just form balls of death due to them reviving other allies, especially if they pick up another priest that gets back to life with a fair chunk of mana to cast heals, that only makes it more of a snowball.
