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.

    You need to buy a laptop that supports external GPUs for this.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    I'm pretty lucky to get myself an Alienware 15 with RTX 2070.
  • Varine Varine:
    I think I'm moving back up north for the summer, I got offered my job as the tournant chef back and I'm tired of struggling down here, it pays like twice as much too
  • Varine Varine:
    I think imma give four or five weeks of notice today to my boss, and see how much that backfires on me. I know he's struggling to hire anyone though, so it's like, do a couple weeks of interviews with me and then we'll have two or three weeks to train someone to take over for me. Hopefully he doesn't fucking let me go in like two weeks cuz that would really fuck me up right now
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Wouldn't it be better if you give 3 to 4 weeks of notice? So that, at least you are guaranteed for 1 more week of paycheck to hold you over?
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    By the way, where are you moving to?
  • Varine Varine:
    Back to Idaho for the summer, then maybe Houston in August or so, my girlfriend or whatever we are loved it there
  • Varine Varine:
    I'm not sure yet, but my parents need some help cuz they're getting older and my mom has MS so can't do much anymore, so I'll be able to get their property fixed up so they can sell their other house. And the resort is stoked to have me back for the summer, cuz they always struggle with staff.
  • Varine Varine:
    I think it'll be alright, even if they cut me loose a bit early I do have some money and I know plenty of people that will lend me the few hundred bucks to get up there. I'm just catching up after last year still, if I have to kite some bills for a couple weeks it'll be fine.
  • Varine Varine:
    I hate my job but I do like one of my bosses, he does try really hard to get me what I need, and I want to make sure I leave with them comfortable with a new manager
  • Varine Varine:
    I like my coworkers for the most part too as much as I bitch about them, they just aren't reliable. As kids tend to be, I was a shithead at 19 and 20 too I'm sure, so
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Good luck on getting things going.
  • Varine Varine:
    Eh, it'll be fine, I got it mostly planned out already. Roommates know, boss will know in about an hour when I go to work, I'll have a plane booked once we decide my last day, and I have a place to stay up there lined up for two or three months
  • Varine Varine:
    That all came together surprisingly easily
  • Varine Varine:
    I think I'm going to give 4 weeks, so that'll give me 2 more full checks probably, and then one more coming after I leave.
    +1
  • Varine Varine:
    All that shit came together really well suprisingly. My boss was upset cuz I am really good at my job suprisingly, but he's stoked that he got 4 weeks, plus one or two if he needs it, my flight's book in mid June, but I start my new job almost immediately so it'll be nice to have some time to chill and pack and get my rooms cleaned out. He actually gave me a dollar raise right after I gave notice to thank me for not being short or just leaving and making sure I can help interview and train someone to replace me. He is really cool, his food truck has just been a nightmare to run. I get my vaccine next week finally, allegedly Idaho will let me have my license back when I get there, and I have all my bills up to date so it should be an easy move this time around.
  • Varine Varine:
    Is anyone else getting server timeouts in the chat? I think it's on my end, my wifi adapter has been acting up recently
  • Varine Varine:
    100% my end, idk what it is though.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Just woke up. No idea.
  • jonas jonas:
    sounds great :) have fun in Idaho
  • The Helper The Helper:
    freaking Idaho
  • Varine Varine:
    Yeah it sucks up there, but it'll be a bit easier for the summer probably.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    When you get to Houston you will have your pick there is a huge shortage of good people to work in your field here. They are hiring everywhere and Texas is pretty much fully open.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    for anyone else following this yes I am in Houston so Varine and I will RL meet gotta love it! Looking forward to it!
  • jonas jonas:
    awesome
