When under attack from all sides, go "yeah, all on <name>". That actually works!"

Kekeke, I was also surprised that it worked. Don't forget the =( smiley.


>"I'm pretty sure the version I played was the most recent one."

My replay is around a month old, so it could be from an older version. No idea if the map got updated in the meantime without a changelog...


It's been a while since I played the map. What bothered me was the slow mana regeneration rate of the mages as far as I can remember.

Sweet gob, Ace but I have a coupple of sugjestions for your map:
Spell book for the Mage containing these spells-Summon Sceleton Warrior,Summon Sceleton Archer,Sceleton Dice

The first 2 spells are obvious and the third one is a luck gig- you summon one sceleton with random dmg type, random armor, random atack speed, and one random passive

Also Add Sceleton King to the selable units.Make 2-3 upgrades fopr the mages.

JASS:

function Trig_Mages_Actions takes nothing returns nothing
    local unit u = GetTriggerUnit()
    local integer c = GetUnitUserData(u) + 1
    call DoMystery(GetOwningPlayer(u))
    call SetUnitUserData(u, c)
    if GetUnitUserData(u) &gt;= GetRandomInt(42, 50) and GetUnitTypeId(u) == Unit_Mage3() then
        call Trig_Mages_Effect(u)
        call UnitAddAbility(u, Ability_ChaosMage4())
        if GetPlayerTechCount(GetOwningPlayer(u), 'Rusl', true) == 0 then
            call SetPlayerTechResearched(GetOwningPlayer(u), 'Rusl', 1)
            call QuestMessageBJ( udg_PlayerGroup[GetConvertedPlayerId(GetOwningPlayer(u))], bj_QUESTMESSAGE_UNITACQUIRED, &quot;|cff00ccffSkeletal Mastery|r
Your mastery of the Dark Arts has permanently added an extra 10% to the duration of your summoned Skeletons.&quot;)
        endif
    endif
    if GetUnitUserData(u) &gt;= GetRandomInt(22, 26) and GetUnitTypeId(u) == Unit_Mage2() then
        call Trig_Mages_Effect(u)
        call UnitAddAbility(u, Ability_ChaosMage3())
    endif
    if GetUnitUserData(u) &gt;= GetRandomInt(7, 10) and GetUnitTypeId(u) == Unit_Mage1() then
        call Trig_Mages_Effect(u)
        call UnitAddAbility(u, Ability_ChaosMage2())
    endif
    set u = null
endfunction


May I suggest improving this by calculating how much mana was used in casting.
It would be more fair since spells differ very much in mana requirement.

Essence of blight - 4
Raise Dead - 42
Bloodlust - 40

So basically once you get to level 3 you simply have to switch to essence or you will never level up.
I am sure it is "amusing" to find that out in game, but it is not really something that gives strategic depth to game.

Hardcoding mana values won't be a problem since you have only 3 spells on mages...

Essence uses an unspecified amount as it depends on the number of units healed.
Actually, it's so overused that most to all players simply "forget" that they can also summon new skeletons.
If you have a problem with that, I'd suggest to have a look at "DoMystery" and weep :p

Either way though, Mastery of the Dark Arts (or an extra level) is not supposed to happen after precisely 317 mana or 42 summoned units or anything other of perfect precision.
It just happens.
Sooner or later.

Data - Maximum units charget to caster - 5
Therefore it takes max 20 mana which is half manacost of other spells.

>> "DoMystery"
I LoL-ed

It is way sooner with essence.
You can make it require random amount of mana you know...

I have a problem when hosting this map. (using WC3TFT version 1.23 - newest as of may 22nd)

Whenever people join, they get kicked the moment they enter. I can't even join it from my other computer, LAN nor Bnet.

What's wrong ;_;

Sadly Ace no longer check these parts on the internet.
Probably the new patch is the trouble-maker, nothing to be done really.
