Without knowing what type of map you're making, nobody is going to be able to give you any specific tricks about balancing. If you truly want something to be relatively balanced, though, you need to have your map played by a large group of testers of different skill levels, and continually rebalance and retest different beta (and potentially, release) versions of your map based on feedback.
 
im making an orpg map based on the idea of Twilights Eve.

and the thing is that i wanna blalce it at least a bit BEFORE i release a version xD otherwise it would be rejected from the beginning and for that it was too much work ^^
 
You should just be able to more-or-less eyeball balance units when you're in the alpha stage. Number balancing is easy to go back and fix - what's much more important during pre-alpha/alpha is making sure everything works as its supposed to. Once you get to a beta version, though, you need to get testers to balance it, because realistically, there is no way that one person will be able to try anything or will be able to think of every creative loophole that an entire playerbase can think up.

Looking at the Twilight's Eve ORPG, it seems that the release version is build 1.14d, which means they probably had at least 14 major updates, and presumably many more minor updates building off of the then-current build. I would guess that much of those updates were to fix bugs, exploits, and balance issues discovered by the testing staff and/or community. So even after a game is released, there are definitely often issues with balancing that sneak by, yet if a game is good enough, it won't be "rejected from the beginning", because people find the core experience fun.

What you need to focus on at this stage, rather than making sure each unit is balanced properly, is getting feedback from some core people that you trust to give honest opinions on whether the gameplay itself is fun and interesting.

    News portal has been retired. Main page of site goes to Headline News forum now
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I am working on getting access to the old news portal under a different URL for those that would rather use that for news before we get a different news view.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Easily done

  • The Helper The Helper:
    https://www.thehelper.net/pages/news/ is a link to the old news portal - i will integrate it into the interface somewhere when i figure it out
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Need to try something
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Hopefully this won't cause problems.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Hmm
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I have converted the Headline News forum to an Article type forum. It will now show the top 20 threads with more detail of each thread.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    See how we like that.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I do not see a way to go past the 1st page of posts on the forum though
  • The Helper The Helper:
    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/

    What do you think Tom?
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    I will have to get used to this.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    The latest news feed looks good
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I would like to see it again like Ghan had it the first time with pagination though - without the pagination that view will not work but with pagination it just might...
