WMW Reborn 9.7

Level 3
Feb 22, 2009
WMW The Next Generation

Things to do:
- get motivation for editing the map ;)

Update 07.10.09

Changelog WMW TNG 2.0::
- did some minor bug-fixing issues.
- Fixed a serious bug which caused creeps between waypoints of Player 1/Player 2, Player 3/Player 2, Player 4/Player 5, Player 6/Player 5 not to enter the ship. Bugabuse such as building a maze from mid-waypoint(Player 2 or 5) to right oder left waypoint (Players 1,3,4,6) causing the creeps to be sent back to mid-waypoint when returning from the out ones and therefore being caught in an endless loop is no longer possible.

Enjoy =)

Sorry, accidentally removed 1.8-changelog and don't remember the changes.

Update 27.04.09

Changelog WMW TNG 1.7::

Update (16.03.09)
Changelog WMW TNG 1.2:

Update (14.03.09)
Changelog WMW TNG 1.0:

Changelog WMW Reborn 9.7x
- added a creepcounter-function. It shows the number of living units controlled by the computer players(which the creeps belong to). Depending on the number of players in the game the starting value will be between 2 and 0 for every team. I'm still thinking about a possibility to fix it.
- added a creeplimit which limits the number of creeps on every side to 90. Problem right now is that when the limit is reached creeps still spawn on the right lane, but don't on the left one.

As you can see the new feature does not work as it is supposed to yet... I'll do my best.

Starting Post:
Hey everybody. I'm trying to release a new version of WMW Reborn which shall be more balanced than the previous ones. Also i tried to make the races themselves more unique. I think some changes really contribute to this aim and others really don't...

I took Abuser[Ger]'s WMW Reborn 9.6b as basic concept.

Things I changed:

- Removed all races except for Undead, KiZ, Warlock, Warrior, GOD, Beam, Nightelves, Army because many races were a lot worse than others.
- Upgrading towers now costs less.
example: You got a Grunt and want to upgrade it to a Raider. You have to pay:
Raider cost - Grunt cost. Like in MMW...
- Medium-Splash and Small Splash works now.
- Fixed known sellbugs.
- Did some balancing stuff...
- increased 1st Level Towers' hp to 2500 so they won't be struck down by creeps in one hit when building new towers. (occured quiet often)
- increased Towers' hp to at least 2500 no matter which level they are.
- increased Raider gold cost to 100 and made a higher cooldown.
- increased Warlock damage.
- increased Chaos Blademaster damage
- Soul(Undead) is renamed Lost Soul because God race also has a Soul-Tower
- Increased cost of Lost Soul to 75
- Increased Necrolyt damage.
- Decrased Ghost cost to 2000 and increased damage.
- decreased banshee gold cost to 10000.
- increased damage of dreadlord.
- increased damage and lumber cost of burning ghost.
- decreased cost and damage of Tim Latte. Gave him tiny air splash.
not all to sure what else I changed about Kodo[BLK]...
- added crippling poison ability to orcs_and_elves
- way decreased damage of fin-ger
- decreased cost of Undeadlaw and increased damage.
- increased attackspped and damage of KiZ.Metz-ger
- heavily increased damage of lag-ger and added crit + crippling poison
- increased damage of nig-ger
- decreased Ninja's attackspeed and damage and gold cost
- added crippling poison to Berserker
- increased gold cost of Master
- increased damage of Sensi
- Nightelves now have the bouncing ability (only Mountain Giant has still Splash). Wanted to increase the numbers of targets the major towers can hit, but caused heavy lags. Attacks bounce once and do 70% damage to the second target.
- Nightelves now don't have damage-range anymore. They inflict the same amount of damage with every strike because of their accuracy.
- Decreased Archer gold cost to 8 gold. Decreased damage, range and cooldown. added bounce.
- removed Huntress' splash, but added bounce. increased damage.
- increased Druid of the Talon's damage. added bounce
- increased Mountain Giant's range. Heavily decreased attack speed, but also heavily increased damage. added good splash.
- increased damage of Demon Hunter. Added bounce & critical strike. increased gold cost
- increased damage of Demon Hunter Transformed. added bounce.
- increased lumber cost of Priestess of the Moon. Increased damage and decreased cooldown. added bounce.
- increased damage of Cenarius. Added bounce.
I didn't change too much about Beam because cooldown is always 0.00 or 0.01 and i know for sure most beam towers don't shoot that fast. Seeing other towers dealing slower damage, but having an equal cooldown i don't know on what the real attackspeed depends and what value the cooldown really has. (animation backswing and damage point are at 0.000)
- heavily decreased damage and gold cost of Dark Beam.
- added a new tower called Darker Beam for 5.000 Gold and with 1000 damage. Its model is Kel'Thuzad in lich-form. Darker Beam is just a stronger version of the old Dark Beam and Dark Beam had to be weakened to have a Beam tower for mid-lategame. Before there was only Wind beam(650) and Dark Beam(5000) which wasn't worth the 5000 at all! So there was a huge gap between the Wind Beam(650) and Ultimate Beam(20.000)
- increased Ultimate Beam's range.
- decreased damage of Ion Cannon. (also removed requirement of Ultimate Beam)
- heavily increased damage of Burst Ion Cannon, but took splash away (removed requirement of Ultimate Beam)
- Decreased gold cost of Soul to 7 and added crit and tiny splash.
- decreased damage and attackspeed of Fallen Angel.
- decreased damage and attackspeed of Arch-Angel.
- increased damage of Ultimate Angel and added critical strike.
- heavily increased damage of archangel-general.
- heavily increased damage of GOD. Added huge splash.
- increased range of Faith.
- heavily increased damage and attackspeed of Pistol recruit. Decreased gold cost to 7.
- increased damage and attackspeed of MP5-Recruit, but decreased range.
- added a new tower called Flamethrower Recruit. Its model is the Firelord.
Gold cost: 250 | Range: 350 | Cooldown: 0.25 | high splash | Damage: 67-167 Chaos
- changed Sharp Shooter damage-type to magic. heavily increased damage & range. also decreased cooldown.
- added a new tower called Shotgun Soldier. Its model is the mortar team.
Gold cost: 3000 | Range: 450 | Cooldown: 1.00 | average splash | Damage: 4350-4800 Siege
- heavily increased gold cost(10000), damage and attackspeed of M4Soldier.
Changed damage-type to Chaos.
- heavily increased gold cost(1lumber), damage and attackspeed of Super Soldier.
- replaced Grand General-Tower by a new Tower: Tank Trooper. Its model is a steam tank.
Lumber cost: 5 | Range : 2500 | Cooldown: 1 | HUGE SPLASH!!! | Damage: 111000-113960 Chaos
- renamed Grand General -Pure to Grand General
- readded Ultimate GOD to Dark Fortress.
- fixed problem with Eternal Spirit who blocked creeps and caused that creeps attacked the maze.

Please note that I didn't post all changes I did because I don't know some of them anymore. I did some changes some weeks before and i don't remember them anymore. Also in the beginning I didn't plan on doing a big overhaul so I didn't make a changelog.
From now on I will of course make a changelog to keep you up to date what was changed in the latest version.

I want to add a "-random" function which gives the player 2 random builders but only 1 builder of every group.
groups are:
melee: warrior, warlock, undead, kiz
ranged: nightelves, beam, god, army
The group names aren't the best to choose I know... Melee races have some Melee towers and the important thing about them is that they have poison attacks.
Ranged races have nothing but ranged towers with special abilites such as critical strike, splash, bounce, low cooldown different damage types,etc.
Could use some help with that...

I want to add unit-limit (about 90 or so I think) that limits the amount of units every side can summon to 90, but I want the players to be able to summon more units for income. Units summoned after the 90th shall not spawn anymore. (stucking creeps are a huge problem in wmw 9.6b)
Could use some help with that...

Please tell me what you liked/disliked about that map and give me hints at bugs and how to balance wmw reborn 9.7 even more. Tell me which towers are too strong and which too weak.

P.S. I just disabled the other races and didn't delete/remove them. I found out theres plenty races in wmw of earlier versions that are just disabled.
I concentrated on balancing these 8 races and I try to focus on them first.
Maybe I'll add and balance races from previous versions in later versions.
