Zul'Farrak

This bundle is marked as substandard. It may contain bugs, not perform optimally or otherwise be in violation of the submission rules.
It's my FIRST map...

I make a Zul'Farrak map. I tried to make it like the real Zul'Farrak in WoW.

You can choose your heros in the tavern: Tank, RangeDD, MeleeDD, Healer.
To activate boss fights/Events go on the dark grounds in the map...
There are 5 bosses.


Bots don't work because i don't know how too make it^^ I'm new with the World Editor

a little tip...: To destroy the big door use the Ingenier because he can destroy it with his spell.

pleas write commands because its my first map and give me tips what can I do better the next time..

    1) Poor scripting with memory leak and does not contain proper victory/defeat.
    2) For RPG genre, the terrain was very poorly develop as it lack of tiles variation and destructible/doodad.
    3) Missing hotkey, poor tooltips and only can have 1 hero.

    1/5 (Unacceptable)

    Please do more research and read tutorial, the quality of the map was way too weak.

    Allright, I'll write a command: Do not upload poor quality maps on the hive!
    (You probably meant "comments" :wink:)

    Well, you need to do everything better... the triggering, the terraining, the general idea, the objects, the description... everything.

    Septimus (the one who wrote the first comment) has made some nice tutorials about triggering, it will make it a lot easier and your triggers won't cause lag (at the moment, they do).

    You should check some other maps for the terrain, see how they've done it, use doodads, tileset variation, instead of blizzard cliffs, you can increase the terrain height and use pathing blockers, things like that.

    For the objects: create custom spells (triggered), make the description a lot better, customize the units instead of copy/pasting standard units and changing the name!
    Items are also very important in RPG-maps, create a lot of custom items, maybe use an item-system (bag, item-type, equipment-system, whatever you want, there are enough on the hive).

    Check my signature to improve the description and 1 more thing: work on your English!

    That's it, a lot of fun mapping, try to improve your skills for a while and then you can start creating a map.

    The Terrain is bad. It is almoust empty in most places. 2/10

    I started the game, gues what? i didn't have the population limit to buy a hero, then you didn't remove detonate and the buildings from wisps.
