In this game any killer unit has the chance of evolute into another more stronger unit. Each unit have an upgrading way, where the final unit is hero type and rank is Warlord. When a unit kills another unit (non friendly / non allied) a counter is revealed over himself. the first number is the currently amount of kills for that unit, the second number reveals the number of kills required for evolute to the next grade.

When a unit becomes to the new grade the first counter is reset to zero and start again for the next rank. the maximun grade for each unit is warlord. The requirements are diferent for each unit type, because some unit can kill more easily than others, then this diferent amount helps to game balance.

When a unit have 3 or more killed, an passive ability is added, the killer brand skill gives to the killer unit a little bonus of attack speed and movement speed. this skill can be upgrade after 12/36/80 kills.

- To improve the balance of the game, all races have the same way to upgrade Life, Armor and Damage. All requirements are removed from previous version.
- All races have four units to conform an army. only four warlords are allowed per each player, one warlord of each type.
- Each training building can cast a tower build to improve zone defenses, but there are requirements to get the tower, all races have towers allowed.
- Each race have charger units.
- Each race have tech building to research upgrades and revive dead Warlords. if a tech building is destroyed the owner can buy another tech building on the neutrals shops. use this to accelerate researchs.

Dont forget to visit: http://wess.phpnet.us to check any information.

Getting Gold Resources.

the main way for get gold is conquest neutral and enemy buildings, when each turn ends a tax is collected from any training building owned by you. Basic buildings gives less gold than castles. When you destroy a enemy training building you get 1/10 of the current amount of gold from last owner player but that player loses 1/20 of his resources. A second way to get gold is killing, killing and killing. The map flag is on, any killed unit gives bounty gold reward. Also the mercenaryes race always is stealing resources from buildings and units.

Getting Killer Points Resources.

Lumber resource is replaced with killer points. There are 3 ways to get killer points, the main way is getting ranks. For each rank that you gain killing a certain amount of enemy units, you get a major bonus of killer points, indeed when you reaches a new rank in first or second position you gain an extra killer points bonus. The second way is killing upgraded units, those units have a killer point bounty per grade. Second upgrades have 1 killer point bounty, Third upgrades have 2 killer points bounty and Warlords units have 3 killer points bounty. Another way to get killer points is taking the massive killing event. that succed when you kill 7 or more units in little time, in the same point or diferents points at same time. getting 5 killer points. See thief´s skill for more killer points.

Warlords Empire 0.32c is very similar to risk maps there are control points scattered across the map, everyone starts with a control point and 2 buildings to research and buy items, and to train units, it has a interesting twist to it that I found both interesting and fun, after a certain amount of kills your unit will level up becoming more powerful and gaining new abilities. I liked this feature because it made people actually pay attention to fights to make sure units with kills stayed alive and where getting the kills, but there was a downside of this because creeps would randomly spawn and where already in control of control points, so that you would make sure a unit would get all the kills. I suggest that the kill goes to the unit that has the most damage delt to the killed unit. Overall it was a a great start on what could or will be a fun map. :spell_breaker:

Great map, a few suggestions. I had a orc warlord and dwarf warlord but couldn't upgrade because i didn't have a dwarf warrior and grunt it seems like if I have the stronger version I shouldn't run into this problem. It would be nice if you had some kind of built in kill counter besides just the floating numbers. An example is from broken alliances but instead of an exp bar just a kill bar.

True, mechanical man.
I think same ideas. and, on next upgrades, this map will have enought amount of upgrading units, to select any race. For now, this map concept and gameplay is under development and there is not final ended versión.
The final gameplay concept focus is conform a solid army game, from initials upgrading units.
In tested games, i detect 3 diferents tactics. Players choosing build a unique unit to get fast a final Warlord. Anothers choose to conform an stack with 12 upgrading units like commandos, and others training a large army to expand on the map, and also others only using dogs.

Well, all tactics gets good answers and funny games.
More units will come on future upgrades. (sorry for my english)
Level 3

I've played this map a few times. It's great. There are a few things I recommend you to change, though:
-When any kind of castle is destroyed it leaves an "owned castletype" building. That one can be easily destroyed and that permanently erases the building from the map. It can happen by accident, not only when you tell your units to. You could make that building invulnerable, but in exchange make those types of buildings only last ~20 seconds. If the player does nothing with it in that time, it will rebuild itself as a neutral building, to prevent that players keep hold of it forever.

Another thing, which was mentioned before, is that you can train your units by slaying allied units. If you really want to implement something such as a denies, you should make attacking allied units impossible over a certain percentage of their hitpoints. That means the players who own the units may not attack them themselves without that condition, because that would mean they could weaken the unit for their ally for them to deny it.

There is another bug: After you pillaged a castle, there is another one spawning next to it. However, the pillaged one stays for about a second. So you can build a castle and directly after pillage it so you have both conquered and pillaged it. That way, you get a castle yourself and a new neutral castle next to that one. It's a duplication glitch. With the new invulnerability system I recommended, a 0 second death time of the castle should be no problem?

I read you were going to implement an evolution for the flying units. Either I recommend you not to, or to nerf their attack power, as they are a big threat to the balance in my eyes by themselves as they are right now. Perhaps that's just me.

Another thing I've been wondering about is: why did you leave out two players in the AI support? You could just make it check whether it's a human player playing or not and have them be active only if it's a computer or a leaver, if that's the problem of having all slots used up. It's not challenging enough to only fight three out of four possible bots, because they lack defense if they don't cover all ground equally.

Also, the map hates winners. At least if you play against AI only. The game tends to crash when you destroy the last AI-controlled healing building and tower. I think you messed something up at the victory trigger, because I always get a fatal error when winning. Always. There has been no exception at all.

As a last thing: I have been wondering..if your English is a problem, why not find a person who speaks a good English and spanish, who could help you translate? Maybe someone can be found for that on the forum. Other than that, you could try an English native and just desccribe what you mean. I'm sure they'll come up with a translation of your description!

All in all this is a great map, but some of the glitches affect the gameplay quite a lot. If all the changes I recommended were to be made I am wondering if the melee units would require a little buff in the evolution speed, as they are really disadvantaged as the cannon fodder type sometimes, but in the end I think it is well possible to upgrade them.
I really like the race idea, I hope to see that in your next version. Keep up the good work!

Thank you for your comment blackcat and all posters.
really, read ur comments encourage me enough to continue developing this map.
About ur suggestions and bugs, blackcat, i currently working fixing that. also im working on complete re build of initials procedures, inserting race mode, and because it, owning buildings procedures will be changed fixing that problems. so, that´s take time, since im giving finales tests on my university.

- About dennys, that´s fixed on version 0.38
- About slots without AI, i really added these two Ai on 0.38, currently working fine on my testing maps. but, Ai need change to race mode.
- another thing fixed are item values. lot of relics have increased kp values and chaged some effects values. Ank have decreased prize.
- about races, some of them will come on 0.38 version. So, races will be developed are:Humans - Elvens - Ogres - Demons - Vampires - Undeads - Orcs - Dwarfs - Trolls - Night Elfs - Ents - and a last race with some creeps.
- About melee evolution: uhm there are some modes to upgrade thats units on easy way, anyway I will check that.
- About flying units, i will ckeck that, and on next upgrades all flying units will be not upgraded, since, Flying warlords are very very strongers.
- About win condition, true, there are a lot of better ends. I will rebuild win condition and actions on v0.38.
for 0.38 versión im working on Human - Elvens - Night Elfs - Orcs - Dwarfs - and Vampires races, Inserting some features, units and building aspects per race.

Well, a home page is coming.
xd, i will find a good translator to helpme. (so, tellme where are the major translate needs)

ok. that´s all for now

hi there

I really like your map because of the unit killing system and so on and I really hope for future releases. =3

Am I wrong or has the AI some bonuses?
Cause when I play 3 people versus 3 pcs its allmost sick how much units the pcs can produce and upgrade at the same time.
(none the less they are beatable but at the beginning they are really tought)

The Knight: sure he is T2 and stuff but hes allmost 2 strong I dunno if you add a evolution for him but I hope not xD
Or is it just me that their too strong?

btw I think the graveyards are intresting "levling spots" for weaker units but wouldnt it make it more intresting when there are other (random) places for creeps to spawn?

Keep up your good work

Hi Nothu.

about ur questions
1: I consider two alternatives to improve the evolution of the weaker units, one is adding two training areas in the caves removing two of the 5 monsters. The other option is to implement a collusion system, ie, when a unit participates in the murder of another, earn accomplice points. 3 accomplice points may amount to 1 murderer point. but this improvement will come on future updates, im currently working on races.

2: AI don´t have bonuses except for Ai Dead hero restores time. this take minor time. indeed, the behavior of the AI was designed to emulate the playing way of human player with an average experience.

3: The knight: he as the tank, the same Guardian function but with less cost. Indeed, i consider include knight upgrades. but it will be totally rebuilt to improve game balance.

May 12, 2009
Hi, I saw your map and it had only posts about "wow, very good" and other that isn't quite helping so I thought, Ok I'w make a proper post. Well, here it is after totaly five hours of playing I think I had a good look of the map.
Originality is like 5/5 cause I've never played such a map and yeah, there are a lot of risk/strategy maps but this one deserves 5/5 cause with the great option of choosing from so much races and the leveling system is great.

Single player is fine, the AI is allright and fully functional thought in the first 45 minutes it doesn't realy do much exept being owned with proper tactic but after this time it gets kinda berserk and pwns.

Terrain is awesome, you have put so much work on it to have such a variety of terrain and doodads and other.

Description is quite good as in ingame and in Hive Workshop. There is detailed information about almost everything. One thing bodders me thouhgt, the change log is quite big, shorten it a little, wrap the screenshots in hiden tags and why do you have written text thats about the game when you have an "about the game" tab where even more detailed information is? Just delete the one in the beggining and put the "about the game" up.

Balancing is nice, I have nothing to say.

Gameplay is quite good, I didn't sufer lag or crashes and it was quite fun.

Credits are given properly, well done.

I didn't like much the variety of units(the thing with the only four units) and the fact that the dwarf race hasn't flying units(lol, that's major unbalance).

Overral this map is quite fun, simple but yet very good.
I give you 5/5.

Ads for versión 0.39.

Greettings to all followers of Warlords Empire.

by some complicated personal situations, the development of the map was a couple of months in detention. but I notice that version 0.39 is coming out. this version will have the most complete upgradable units, plus add a function to self-selection of units with similar innate abilities.
improved the majority of innate abilities.
improved the balance of the third unit for vampires became too strong in relation to units of similar grade and reduce the harm from gun men's self-timer.
I am also working on better definition of obstacles, it aims to provide an effective tool in building an adequate defense without unbalancing the game for both attacker and defender.
It is very probable that in this version include a building that recognizes colonized territories, delivering certain categories (towns, cities, fortresses) according to how defenses are mounted, these categories would deliver some defensive bonuses, in turn, is being studied to recognize battle types (regular attack, siege, pillage, devastation, conquest) and determine certain bonds to attacker and defender in each case.

Well, now those are the ads for version 0.39.
greetings and continue to enjoy Warlords Empire.

bugs i found:
1: when you get upgrades newly trained units are more affected by upgrades than older ones are
2: explosive warlords can blast himself across map with impact bolt and into bottem area or other areas that units cannot normaly get to, also this sometimes causes him to be stuck and unable to move because he must cast the impact bolt on land that can be walked on

problems with gameplay i found:
1: armies and units tend to run out of units to kill for ranks once the neutral creeps run out due to removal of feed camps
2: dwarven artilery is incredibly powerful when supported with a few units, i had powder teams do 80-200 siege damage and with coltmen and some ranks on both they could take an army thier size an lose only a few units
3: warlords tend to be much weaker than thier rank 3 counterparts due to upgrades
4: unit abilties are nice, but they are hard to use in the heat of the battle when everything is in chaos unless you are very good with micro, since units die much faster than in normal melee, it is hard to use them so that they can be of any purpose, with a few exeptions, such as the dwarven artilery's stunning pellet, which once you get 2-3 TNT teams it can stun armies
5: some warlords are very weak in abilties compaired to others, such as sniper warlord and explosive warlord, the former has no abilties other than stat boost, and the latter has some very powerful abilties, like impact shot and stunning pellets, and even a gaint nuke that obliderates armies in one cast
6: weak melee units have little chance of leveing since thier leveld forms are much weaker than tanks, and most units give 2 kills, so melee is merely feed

that concludes my problem report

P.S. i play as dwarf a lot.

I played this with my brother, as overall we had a good, time.
The Ai was decent, attacked me, defended properly ran away when it nearly died etc.
Good leveling system, I really like how they also have random spells and abilities, thought that was really nice (My bro got a frost wyrm with repair!).
I also like the special effects, like the mini worms around the ghouls, you should make more stuff like that, cos that is pretty cool.
The only thing downside is the mass of typos and bugs. But I know this game isnt finished and is right now more of an "Open BETA"
A bug that pissed me off though was when I bought a shadow orb with my charger and it died with the items it was holding vanishing, strangely, the items popped back where the charger died so I wasn't overly angry. Also another note, usually the heroes are much weaker than the second last upgrade due to the armor, health and attack upgrades not affecting the heroes, Like i had 50ish armor for a mountain dwarf but only 15 for my hero.
3/5 I think. But obviously will get higher once you finish it.

¿problems with the sound effects?, always i test the map on battlenet, and on sometimes, someone start screaming about the sound effect, but that´s is a problem with the own game sound configuration, check it in options.

You have quite a lot of classes, but it seems like the classes have randomly mixed units that only slightly look like they belong in that group (example: There is a ghost in the vampire class?). Maybe you should have less, but more unique/better made classes.
