It's not quite a hero arena. It doesn't have tomes.

Does it? It had better not.
nope none, but i am thinking of implementing some sort of upgrade system, of which i havent completly smoothed out yet

sargon said:
Umm...you just described the genre, while saying that it's not just the genre.

What I like about the AoS genre is the teamwork aspect and the objective aspect (destroying bases, etc.). I can't think of another genre where you can work together as a hero with a bunch of other heroes to accomplish things. Hero arenas might qualify, but all anyone does in them is go off and fight solo, then do a duel every X minutes. The teamwork aspect just isn't the same in any other genre.
im actually thinking of dooing like a every 20 minute duel ro something, teh host can pick at beggining, cuz there are extra areas I have kept at lower/upper corners for this idea

basically every say 20 minutes, people are transported to one of the two spots, the creep waves stop, and the two teams duel as a team agaisnt the other, and ahve a certain amount of tiem to do so, the winning team gets a prize of some sort at the end

it's partially their mentality, but it's also because the gameplay caters to it. Dota is a hero arena disguised as an AoS. There is no reason to disrupt farming unless it involves an easy hero gank, and items are the be all end all in dota, and if you farm up enough cash, you can defeat any amount of teamwork simply through items.
I agree, and I dont want my map to be liek that, but for now I am using dotas items, so that is the case, nutil I create all my own, it will be like that :(

anywho, any bugs? suggestions?

Nonononono. I said that DotA did not have tomes, which was a good thing, and which seperated it from hero arenas.

Tomes are evil. Don't put them in.

Ewe yahoo...
Ewe another person wanting to compete with DotA...
Sry for late post but how do you know they want to imitate dota. I would rather try to imitate a balanced game like cod/lol/mabey even tob.

as i stated before, I emulated DotA's for the reasons I mentioned, but by no means did I "steal" it, and like i said, there are two taverns, in the upper right and lower left, after typing -ap, they are viewable, and you can select your hero, i would upload on a new veriosn with this fixed, but I have gotten no other responses as to bug/suggestions so it almost seems like a waste to me

amen to that, although I would not mind some constructive criticism

I am not trying to imitat anything, I am jsut trying to make a fun game that I can be proud of when all is said and done :)



as I stressed before....bugs? suggestions? thoughts?

please everyone, read either the fist post in this thread, or the description on teh download page....or the info under quests in the actual map, it will explain everything.....such as...typing -ap(all pick) so you can get a hero, or -ar for all random, and so forth

btw DDR, ty for the comment on the download page :)

Very nice made map. I liked the terrain. And the heroes were good balanced. But maybe remake the DotA items to yours items? And maybe make the camera pan to the tavern when choose the game mode. Many dont understand where the tavern is... But at last, very nice map!

ive fixed camera in latest, but havent changed enough to warrant another upload

and the items, like it is said, they are that for now, that is a lot of items to completely make up, and I didnt really feel like it, so I jsut used those for now

aos's are not repetitive at all, almost every game you have a new strategy, new hero, new people to play with , and overall new experience, if anything , a td is the most repetitive map genre, because you know what to expect the entire game : /

    I think leave it for real old news that cannot be sorted the reason we had it in the first place was a server issue that we do not have anymore. I don't want to get rid of the archive just not put anything in it for now until we figure it out more
