SUMMARY

A massive grand-strategy spawn-based map based on lore surrounding the War of the Ancients trilogy books and the Sundering of Azeroth.

Contains 12 factions with multiple paths per faction, betrayals, old gods, dragons, mogu, and many more races/characters not seen in other Warcraft maps. Currently released and in development in the late-Beta stage.

The map begins 6v6 with the Burning Legion invading against the Kaldorei Resistance. Many twists and turns can be taken, such as Prince Farondis leaving the Queen's Court, Xavius submitting to the Emerald Nightmare, and Neltharion becoming the mad destroyer...

Xavius's icon turns green on game pause/F10. Abilities like Multishot should have passive looking icons. It can be made with: Button Manager v1.8.2 BLP Lab v0.5.0 There's no shortness of such maps on the site. However, it seems rather nice especially...

I'm a big Burning Legion fan so kinda makes me sad you made them PINK and yellow, in any case your map feels very detailed and u put a good ammount of work in it.

Kinda don't like that Archimonde Burning Legion spell is the beastmaster's ult, would be nicer just to have a bunch of strong demons, also for the Admiral Svirax there are some cool models in hive based on the eredar twins, could use that instead of a shivarra.

And why is Balthazar stronger than Tichondrius? Balthazar wasn't even the leader of the Scourge in Lordaeron, it was Detheroc.

In any case cool that you mixed the old story with Legion story.

Haha, I didn't really consider color choices for Burning Legion, not too sure what color is more accurate but I did remove team color from a lot of their units because yellow does feel a bit off sometimes.

Archimonde's ult is being worked on, I was incorporating a gravity black hole/pull but couldn't get it to mesh well with the map so I'm working on something else. I agree the stampede is a bit out of place. As for Sviraxx model, I kind of forgot the character was an Eredar. Easy fix I'll put on my list.

For Balnazaar v. Tichondrius I never really thought that Balna was stronger than Tichondrius, just different use. Also, Tichondrius is far more important as his level determines if you can summon Kil'jaeden (lvl 12 Tichondrius).

Thanks for checking out the map and I'll make some changes based on your comment! New version coming out Monday.

Wow, you said you changed the map based on my comment, but all I see is Demons now can get intu civil war, dreadlords are weaker and demon generals take longer to summon...

Was that just to make me sad that I like the Legion you made them a hell lot weaker???

Lol, the first change log was changes already in the map when you first saw it so that was the dreadlords as you know them.

I have a long, long list of changes/updates planned from games of feedback for balancing purposes, including the legion civil war. When both Archimonde and Kiljaeden are on the field, it gets a bit hopeless for other teams, so I'm trying a split for now.

Promise it wasn't just to hurt your feelings ^.^

Approved.

ADDITIONAL NECESSARY INFORMATION
  • A credits list in the map thread description is required where the names of the resource (models, skins, icons, spells, sound etc.) authors are mentioned along with the specific resource. It would be a luxury to have links leading to the used resources. Credits in the Quest Log would be appreciated too.
  • A detailed changelog in the first post would be helpful to reviewers and notify fans about the newest implementations to your map.
  • Map thread tags are important. Please use those that fit and not more or none.

It is a spawn-based 6v6 game with betrayals, etc.

It starts following the story of War of the Ancients right before the Legion enters Azeroth. Then, players have choices to make betrayals etc. that technically do not follow the actual storyline. Additional factions are in the map that aren't mentioned in the War of the Ancient books but that did exist at the time (Pandaren, for example).

I've been thinking about making a campaign after this has wrapped up but I have a few other projects as well.

I think you should make a command card in the tower that makes all units attack instead of moving.
also, the set rally point command sometimes won't work on blue faction after I get The Nexus. the unit that spawn doesn't move to the place that I set, I even set rally point several times and they just won't move.

I've heard this before and will make sure that in 1.07 it is an attack-move command instead of just move. Thank you for the feedback!

As far as it not working, the blue faction doesn't get Nexus. Do you mean purple (suramar) or blue (sisterhood)? And is it still when Nexus is gained?

I forget which faction got the nexus and can spawn blue dragon maybe it is Suramar. and yes after I get Nexus and start spawning troops they doesn't follow the rally point even though I set a new one

A lot of this changed in the last couple versions. I'll work on cleaning up old tooltips. Also, it is and will be move all and not attack-move all.

I got a notification to leave feedback on this. So far I played single player and I had fun but I had a bug where I couldn't find an item called Crystal of Zin-Malor. I reported the bug on Discord and Xaidin replied to me on his discord that the bug was now fixed.

Keep up the good work!
