Working on a Map
Woah, the new hero is pretty complex, but her skillset allows me to stun a single target for quite a long time. However, I find her attack animation to be rather slow.
Perhaps I should build her as AGI + INT instead of building her pure INT. This would probably make her combo easier to pull off and, perhaps, more effective. Another way I can think of right now would be to build her pure agility with some strength, using her stuns to lock down a target and unload arrows in their face.

I tested out the Blade Mistress again. Her glaive thing is pretty fun to use, once I got the hang of how it works. However, it feels out of place. Its the only ability that scales off Skill Power (or whatever its called 0_o). If another one of her abilities scaled off Skill Power as well (I'm thinking her passive), it would be interesting to invest some points into Intelligence and build a caster Blade Mistress, or simply split the points between Agility and Intelligence to build a DPS/Caster Hybrid.
I intend to try out Tank Blade Mistress when I have the time, it would be pretty funny, tanking all that damage and throwing it back at the enemy :p

BTW, are you free for online testing anytime soon? I'm on break for 2 months (1.5 months left) so I have loads of free time on my hands :p
Do you play on Garena? If so, my Garena account is Wizard1996.

Well, I'd add you if you'd let me ;D
My ID is CoffinPuppet =P Add me if you want =P
I just joined, however =D

About the new Hero:
She is able to stun multiple heroes for a maximum of 3.75 seconds, if you "unload" everything while attacking inbetween. It might sound imbalanced, but her strengths come with a set of weaknesses, besides that, she is very variable =P
I've played her STR/AGI against close combat enemies, which gave me the advantage of agile movement and disable. It didn't take VERY long to bring down a tank build, however, you REALLY have take care when kiting.
Same goes for a pure INT build with STR as a secondary attribute, but you're slightly more squishy and you can't dodge as effective. However your damage output exceeds :3

So yeah, as you said, she's very complex and difficult to handle =P Maybe a bit too powerfull, I'll have to see if she needs balancing.

As for the Blade Mistress: I didn't really think about something that synergizes that much, because it was the first hero I made for this map ;D
So, I made things as they are for her, because it had a right feeling to it ;D

So... Maybe make the Blade Crest ability depend on INT instead of a static amount of reduction?

I havn't been able to work on the systems in a while, but I guess I will start re-doing the duel system this weekend.

So, nothing should be changed about the functionality of my first system?

No EXP for Fatal Strike? I typed in whosyourdaddy in single player mode if that's any help :D I wanted to see if I got massive exp. I'm also mainly interested in your heroes, and there is no testing mode or something D: I want to play all heroes, hah. They're cool spells.

Nope =)
I disabled that, because it's just plain stupid to give EXp to someone that obviously doesn't need any from lowly mobs/players.

Well, there is no testing mode =P
But, meh, don't really need it, do you?

But I love testing cool things out, restarting then waiting for purchase delay gets tiring D:
YOu got your point there, however, since it's stressed to be played with more than one player, I guess it doesn't really help if I implement stuff only for one player =P

OK, I havn't been working on this for awhile, but will have time to do so next weekend.

I'll also upload a few screenshots along with updating the first post with various commands + describtions tomarrow =)
So, yeah, last chance to submit your ideas on the dueling system !

I've started to code the last (for the first tavern) Hero, The Shadow Hunter and will be done by the end of this week.

Concept and mechanics are all made by a friend of mine. Expect an awesome assassin to be put into the hero mix ! =)

Hi there :) 1st of all - I realy like your map, the spells are very unique, the heroes are themed :)thup:), the terrain is good and well = all in all a very good game.

TIP: You could change the "-show" to escape instead, as you do not use that button for anything - and it would make it a lot easier to check stats:p
+rep

EDIT:
noticed a typo:

it says "are are"

Thanks! I'll fix that right away =P
And also thanks for the feedback =) Though, I'd really wish for some participation and opinions on important subjects, such as the new duelsystem =P

Anyways, that being said, I'll update the thread with a sneak-peak on the new Hero, The Shadow Hunter, along with a few screenshots =)

oh, found another bug, the vampire charge spell can be used to move in and out of both healing area and dual area (as they are both squares that would be an easy fix)

Sorry, but I'm not able to host on battlenet - though I would love to try out your map :eek:

On my to-do List ! =)

Looks awesome btw.

^Agreed - it looks good...

would love to have the triggering skills you got /:
You need to plan what you want to achieve and then find the most efficient and logic way to solve that "problem".

There is no specific skills in that, really =P

Anyways, you can always suggest things you want to see in this map =P

I agree on that. There isn't one way for things, only maybe some known ways. You can always reinvent the wheel

Btw, you say you can edit missiles? I have a request

Yes, I can make or edit some for you. Please write me a personal message about that.

  • No one is chatting at the moment.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I read in the PC Gamer review that it was not much of an update to the game like just a re-release
  • Ghan Ghan:
    It's a good remaster. They did not want to change the game much because there are still many die-hard players out there that wouldn't like it to be a new game.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    They've said they are open to adding new content in the future, but wanted to get what's there correct first. As it is, for what you get the $40 asking price is a bit steep.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Yeah that is a high price think I am going to wait a minute and see if it goes down some.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Looking forward to doing some dungeon grinding again though.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    still 101 bots on the site constantly
  • midnight8 midnight8:
    my bots got out of their cage? oh no
  • The Helper The Helper:
    these bots are from russia, china and asia they are less than they were but more than they need to be I have no idea why they hover here
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Probably because of my Headline News
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Facebook is getting fucked right now lol
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I learned one thing from the Facebook outage - BGP - I am sure Ghan is an expert in it but I did not know what the name of it was I knew there was something like that there though
  • The Helper The Helper:
    What is up Tom?
  • jonas jonas:
    We once considered doing a project on BGP looking for problems in the implementations. But we didn't get sufficient interest and Tony Li was mean to us so we said whatever
  • Varine Varine:
    hello, peeps. I got most of my computer back up to Idaho so I have passwords again after that nightmare of like 4 months
  • Varine Varine:
    We're all trying to get time off now, but holy shit. I did not expect it to be that busy. Every day was a historical record, and every week was a total sales record for like all of summer. My pay is going to almost double next summer, which makes cooking finally a viable career, I might actually afford to change industries soon!
  • Varine Varine:
    We had people ask if there was anything we could do about the fucking sun. There's like 30 inside tables and every outside table has a sunbrella thing.
  • Varine Varine:
    No, I'm sorry, I cannot move the sun and the umbrella doesn't go 90 degrees sideways. They unfortunately had to deal with a sunset across mountains and a lake, we can only imagine the horror they had to undergo by visiting our restaurant
  • Varine Varine:
    Well, they do, but they're big and blow away and a 10 foot runaway umbrella is a much bigger problem than some cunt with the sun sorta in her eyes
  • The Helper The Helper:
    What is up Varine? Good to see you buddy! Too bad you are not in Houston I have a friend that needs Cooking staff like desperately remember if you ever want to get a different landscape, not sunsets over mountains and a lake Houston has opportunity!
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Nice to see Varine back in action.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Welcome back Varine!
  • The Helper The Helper:
    can someone answer a question in the World Editor Help forum?
  • jonas jonas:
    ok
  • The Helper The Helper:
    thank you jonas!
  • Varine Varine:
    I'll probably be here through next summer at least, I get paid decent at the moment and I expect it to go up significantly next year. Plus I'm on contract through the end of the year
