Sojuz's Fortress Defense 2 FINAL+

Author File Description
Sojuz
File Details
ROTWK Map: No
Number of Players: 4
One Ring: No
AI: No
Minimap:
The goal is to keep at least one fortress after all waves. If all forts are destroyed game is over.
Customs are allowed. Allow Ring Heroes to select Hardcore mode.
Map allows to play with 1 - 4 players. It automatically cuts unneeded sides if there are less players.
Also if player is defeated his waves won't come in next waves.
Notice that some balance tweaks were made to give weaker armies some advantage, however plying with them can be quite a challenge if not possible at all. I let it to you to achive that.
Leave here bug reports and balance tips which will help make the "plus" version better.

"+" Update:
- (mainly) added script to kill previous wave to eliminate possible lag accumulation
- balance changes
- minor design changes
- some cosmetical special powers changes (coerce and convert still disabled)
- lowered health of uber heroes

MMC1 Thanks for this great map but it seems custom hero convert function has been disabled? purposely?
Wizards, Avatars, Wanderers and Easterlings, Haradrims dont work.

Reduced original playability rating because hero powers have been limited by map creator

Balance: 1.5
Standard heros money ability disabled(Lurtz, Eomer)
- Its absurd for creators to totally reduce hero powers or limit how many troops can be made(Corsairs)

- Map creators should NOT try to RE-INVENT this game - just make playable maps for it.

- Wizards, Avatars, Wanderers and Easterlings, Haradrims dont work.

also discovered:
- Lurtz makes no money
- Eomer makes no money
- Corsairs limited to only 2

so many takeaways!!! : (


Let me say this again:::
- Map creators should NOT try to RE-INVENT this game - just make playable maps for it.


Each faction has its unique benefits and features, powers and advancements.
If taking away specific features of even normal heros as an attempt to "balance" them then you might as well just limit your map play to one faction.
It would no longer matter what faction we choose because you decidedly chose to 'balance' them to be all the same.

Thx for opinion. Yes some powers were disabled, mainly because converting causing bug and even more lag on hc.

@sincere approach ^^

@ I found that some parts of waves are not coming properly which cause lags later during game.
I did not considered it like a major issue in previous instance of the map. But now it is noticeable. It will be fixed by adding script to kill previous waves. Will be done in next map, the fourth and will be done in next "pluses" version of the second and the third.
If u see any bug or possible tweak for coming "pluses" post comment here.

@ Pillage power has been taken away for balance purpose. But thanks for notes, certainly be taken into account in "plus" version. Actually "killing previous wave" is done for it, waiting for more feedback. I must play it for myself like 2-3 times with 4 ppl. But i cant host :/
