ToB O BETA is out.

Viikuna

No Marlo no game.
After all these years, Tides of Blood is back in business with new version O(rgasm).

If you enjoy beta testing new cool maps, pwning some guyes, or are just plain curious person visit at tidesofblood.com and test it.

Theres also some noobs from ToB forums hosting games at East, if you wanna play with us.

Peace. (and lots of blood)

Viikuna over and out.

Yep. And other cool stuff too. Its currently hugely imbalanced and full of bugs, but still pretty neat.


So, it would be cool if you guys could test it, find bugs and complain about how imba everything is, so Cassiel and the team can do something about it.

Eh, I've hosted it a few times in my 'country's room'. Most said it was epic, except one said it was bad because you didn't need to 'last hit like in DotA', and that some skils are just copies from DotA, eg Meat Hook / Ancient Mariner's Ultimate.

It's fancy :)

Neat.

Teams are currently: Jean, Malf, Quiz, Battle Rager, Cow and Blood Mage versus Rat, Witch Doctor, DotM, Phantom Queen, Jimmy and Pory.


Also other cool guys like Leto are making a comeback in future versions.



Just a quick fact: DotA copied Boat ulti from ToB. As they did with Pheonix wake too. ToB copied hook from DotA, though.

Macs are currently having a huge array of problems. They are gathering some list of all mac related issues, like that icon thingy you posted.

Hehe, played this yesterday once (as it happens, in a game with you Viikuna; my nick was Tupolev).

Seems like it'll probably need some severe work, but as first public versions of a completely remade map go it's very amazing.



I'm completely stunned by how amazingly trigger-integrated everthing is. I was always hoping for DotM's new ult to be amazing; as stupid as his old one was, it had some class. When I read the tooltip on the new one, and I saw "projectiles", I was like, "YES!"

That's what I kind of suspected after reading that "Valve and DotA' thread how DotA stole everything. But even if ToB copied hook, they sure as hell made it a lot better!

Now I see what Flying Dutchman is as well :) All with an Impale model :O

I remember you, neat.

And the interaction is indeed amazing. Quiz can like reflect anything. Battle Rager cant do shit with his spells inside Blueshift. Its just simply cool.


Too bad I cant acces wc3 for next few days, which kinda means no ToB :(

Dont really understand what you are saying, but I kinda doubt that you could finish a game in 20 minutes. Even though its supposed to be faster to finish than N was, the games still tend to last pretty long.
 
It seems the time they used to make it wasn't worth it. I can't see where they wasted all of it.

Please elaborate.

If you are complaining about the amount of content in the map, its because
this beta version doesnt have all the stuff that has been made this far.

Also its time consuming, to for example invent and write all the needed systems to replace wc3 own projectiles, buffs ability thingies and other mechanics.

The amount of time that was used to make the map was deffinetly not wasted. The problem is more like to find time for that map making. Its not like Cassiel and Erwt and others are doing it for living or anything.

    I think you can still run the original game, just there's a chance your map won't work with the newer patches

    what development framework have you been looking at for mobile development?

    mostly failing at life through adulthood really demotivated me for a while

    ....what I don't get is why the fuck they would force us to permanently convert to a version of the game everyone fucking hated : \

    Raid Shadow Legends texture pack smh
  • jonas jonas:
    Most people fail at life throughout their adulthood. Sometimes we get to learn from it. Usually it just feels like crap.
