Morphling Wars - New simplistic take on arena

Reaction score
Morphling Wars:

Morphling wars is an arena FFA map where your hero can change into 10 different SC2 units. No wierd, custom abilities. just straight up SC2 units. The object of the game is to kill your opponent by constantly changing your unit to counter your opponent, then change into another unit to counter your opponent's counter and so on.

For example:
You see a stalker so you change into an immortal.
Your opponent counters and changes into a zealot.
You respond by changing into a ghost and chain snipe the zealot.
Your opponent reacts by changing into a High Templar and feedbacks your Ghost.
This can go on forever, until one loses or runs away.
Sometimes you may encounter more than one enemy, in this case things can get confusing. You can use spell casters like the Raven or Sentry to throw your enemies off and turn the tide of battle.

Here is a list of all the units, you can instantly change into:
Dark Templar
High Templar

***In order to play this game you have to create a private game; the orange join game button seems to get stuck on "waiting for players", i don't know why.

***This game is hosted in the NA servers, join channel 'mw' if you would like to play a game of morphling wars with me!

***Although this game can be played with 2+ players i would recommend to have at least 4, as it can be quite boring with only 2.

-If you like the game please rate it in the arcade reviews, it would really help me out.
This sounds interesting!

I can definitely see it become very micro intensive, but there are some things that worry me.

I feel like dark templar is going to be very powerful if there's no other way of detecting your enemy. The only way to see/damage a dark templar with those units are with a raven, ghost's emp or High Templar's Psi Storm.

Sure, there are counters, but they feel very hard compared to using the dark templar.

How will you manage the energy?

The Zealot feels pretty weak. I would rather use a dark templar to counter the immortal.

Other than that, it's a good idea and I'll try it out for sure.

I think the reason for the "waiting for players" problem is something about an option related to lobbies when you publish it.
Don't worry Siretu! There are no cloaked units in my game, any unit can see the dark templar and any unit can see a burrowed roach. As for the energy, units will not regenerate energy unless you are using that specific unit. However, energy regenerates about 10 times quicker.

I have also balanced out the units so a tier 1 zealot can fight on par with a tier 2 dark templar. A zealot would be a better counter to the immortal because it has hardened shields(which can also be EMP'd), with the zealots fast attack speed and low damage it can take the shields out quickly. The dark templar however, is a high damage unit and low attack speed.

The purpose of the dark templar is that it most damage in the game but its also the slowest unit in the game. Morphing into this unit after using zealot charge or blink is a great combo. By combining different unit abilities together you can be creative with counters other than relaying on hard counters.

Its also not as micro-intensive as you might think, the most micro required is shoot and scoot. All this game requires is that you simply have a general understanding of SC2 unit counters in a normal game, and if you don't you can always check out the tips!

***I've also solved the 'waiting for players' problem yesterday, it was an option in the arcade info.
I was the old uploader for this map(may be old version) for EU.
Now I delete map from my uploads to discharge the original name of map.

    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: 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.

    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:

    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...
