Seeing how this thread got a little old, here's a new one

I've been working on a map for quite some time

It's called the War of Souls in case you haven't figured it out. I've always liked the Angel Arena maps, but was always dissatisfied because of the boring, run of the mill heroes, imbalances, bugs, inconsistencies, and...laziness, yes laziness.

So I thought to myself "I've been playing war3 for almost six years, so why not make your own Angel Arena map that has none of these issues? That is regularly updated, has bug and exploit problems fixed, and has interesting heroes?

I think I've done just that, or at least started the birth of such a thing.

The War of Souls has over 22 unique heroes, that you can start out with, with their own unique abilities(Abilities will be a mix of heavily modified ladder and triggered spells). Their are no 'ultimate' heroes, nor will there be any heroes that are unbeatable(like the Chosen One from HvH).

The map will be designed to encourage PvP between the opposing teams, there will be numerous things done to accomplish this, first off...

- Duels will be randomly selected in five minute intervals to be 1v1, 3v3,
and 5v5
- Every ten minutes an event will happen at some location(name of event and location pending) which will last for ten minutes, in this location, a sort of 'super creep' will spawn every two minutes that will require teamwork and co-operation to defeat, killing these creeps will result in a substantial gold reward to the team(about 300 per team member) and some decent items. On the flip side you will have to battle with the opposing team for dominance over the location, so hopefully you'll kill them and get the rewards

This will be to discourage the stupid "Sit around, farm gold, gamble and risk until your so strong nobody can beat you." Which is boring, one-sided, and frankly retarded.

There will be none of the stupid 5000+ stats shit like you see in HvH, the most you'll be able to attain will maybe be 200 base stats, and 300+ bonus statistics. This way it will be more about who's more clever then who can attack faster and has more damage/hp in fights.

Agility does not boost attack speed, items are required for that, this was done because of the ridiculously fast attack speeds in other Angel Arenas where it got to the point you couldn't even see the animation anymore.

The heroes from essences, will be made with the intent to be as interesting as the one's you start out with, but with the intent of giving your hero a 'punch' which will give him an edge, he won't be unbeatable(A 2v1 will probably do him in) but more powerful. Nonetheless, the potential remains even for starting heroes to remain as powerful.

Every hero is from somewhere in history, literature, video games or anime/manga.

The list is here

-Vlad the Impaler(a vicious Romanian Prince who was famous for impaling his victims, inspired Dracula)
Brutal Impale - Vlad gouges an enemy hero with his sword, impaling them, Vlad and the enemy hero cannot move for four seconds, during this impalement, as Vlad has to struggle to pull his sword free, during the duration the enemy takes 15/25/35/45 bleeding damage.

Bloodlust - The Impaler is so drenched in the blood of others, that he now has an unending hunger and thirst for violence, blood and pain, all enemies in a 300 AoE around him have 3/5/7/9 HP drained from them per second and given to the Impaler.

Wicked Slasher - Vlad is a vicious and powerful murderer, his skills as a killer are legendary, when activated, grants +10/16/22/28 damage, and grants a 15/30/45/60% chance for a 1.5x critical, for three attacks. Lasts 15 seconds.

Bloodwind Vortex - The Impaler fears NO ONE! His thirst for killing becomes so great that he begins to spin in a circle, so rapidly that his blade begins to create a great vortex that draws in all enemies nearby towards him, when they come into contact with the razor sharp whirlwind, they begin to take damage, sliced by his sword, taking 35/55/75/95 damage a second, the vortex can only be maintained for three seconds, after this ends, any enemies that were damaged by it, now bleed for 25 seconds, taking 10 points of damage per second.

Living Flame - Calcifer disperses his body to the near vicinity burning all those near him for 15/20/25/30 damage per second. If he kills a unit with this he gains an additional 10 damage for 10 seconds. Lasts 15 seconds.

Scintillating Carapace - All those who attack Calcifer are burned for 5 seconds for 2/4/6/8 damage each second. Additional attacks will stack the damage, each level increases armor passively by 2/4/6/8.

(Heroes have it for 15 seconds)
-Dracula(Bram Stoker's Dracula)

Ripper - Dracula has the abilities and powers of a vampire, but even he is legendary amongst their kind for his strength, moving so fast that his shadow has a difficult time following, making it run behind him, he rushes to a target point, ignoring all obstacles, when he reaches the target point he unleashes his vampiric speed again and slices all enemies in a 200 AoE, hitting up to three targets, dealing 25/50/75/125 damage. If he has Famishing Hunger applied, the he uses up all attacks and only hits for 40% of the original life steal damage.

Nighttime Prowler - Dracula is a creature of the night, while not harmed by the sun, he is weakened by it, he loses 10% of his attack and movement speed at daytime, and gains 10/15/20/25% movement and attack speed at night, he also turns invisible when holding still.

Welcome to the War of Souls

Looking for: Someone willing to code the abilities, that's where I'm stuck
 
Where's the map?
 
Doesn't exist yet...or at least not in the sense it's ready to be played, I forgot to add what I'm looking for

EDIT: BE putting that in now
 
I can see where you're going with this, and I love the idea. But there is one problem. You do say that having over powered heroes gets boring after a while, and so it does. But it does offer excitement for the player for a while, and the other team has motivation to try to gang up on this rigged player. But yes, it does get boring after a while.

Now you may see where i'm going with this. If all of your heroes aren't rigged and are quite balanced, easy to fight eachother but no idea who will win, yeah, it'll be interesting. But not for long. People will get bored of the same old heroes and being perfectly balanced with eachother unless they have the godly items, which trust me, some people will spam risk to get even if you discourage it.

So I like the idea, but it will end up just like the other angel arenas. It'll get boring, eventually. Because it's the same thing over and over. I actually perfer the angel arenas with secret heroes you can unlock, and trust me, i've been killed using those heroes if the team is smart enough. Plus, there's super strong bosses you have to try to kill as those secret heroes aswell, which is still very hard. So I think your idea is TOO balanced, if you understand what i'm saying. I'm not trying to offend, but trust me on this, i'm a player of these arena games aswell, and this idea being the same thing every game will get sort of boring.

Sorry if that's a little offensive after all the work you've done, but I think you should try to find a way to combine the rigged parts of some of the angel arenas, with some of the more balanced aspects. So not too rigged, but not too balanced. Even then it'll get boring after a while, but I think it's better then everything being balanced in the game. People WANT the chance to get some secret hero or item that makes them super strong, because it gives them a goal to the game. It gives them a reason to try to risk, or to try and go beat some super hard boss creep. But if the secret hero and item is TOO rigged, then the game will become very unbalanced and that player will be able to kill everyone. So I hope you see what i'm saying.

    It is OK though for the main page to open up on the forum in the view it was before. As long as the portal has its own URL so it can be viewed that way I do want to try it as a regular forum view for a while
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Yeah I'm not sure what the deal is with the pagination.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    It SHOULD be there so I think it might just be an artifact of having an older style.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I switched it to a "Standard" article forum. This will show the thread list like normal, but the threads themselves will have the first post set up above the rest of the "comments"
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I don't really get that article forum but I think it is because I have never really seen it used on a multi post thread
  • Ghan Ghan:
    RpNation makes more use of it right now as an example: https://www.rpnation.com/news/
