Hello guys, sonofjay here again bringing you a project of mine, which is currently on beta. As far as i'm concerned it is 100% stable with no bugs at all since its just a mini project of mine. Anyway enough of the small talk.


Oak of the Firefly: Arena

Oak of the Firefly Arena is a free-for-all brawl type arena. All players are given the same
hero with same spells which means technique, timing and instincts are your only advantage to others.
The objective of the game is to be the first one to reach the set Kill Requirements its either team up with other
players to bring down the toughest opponent or simply kill steal from others without getting a scratch.

Experience a fast pace brawl with other players in a mysterious, dark and hellish terrain which is
designed by me and worked for hours just to deliver the best possible terrain for everyone to experience.


Features:

Fast paced actionA beautiful designed terrain
Cool spells which is implemented for strategical purposesKnockback other players when hitting/damaging them(Currently turned off)

-Fast Paced Action

Being fast paced doesn't mean that the game is just spam spell here spam there and boom you win. Not here, the definition of fast pace for OotF is that thinking your moves fast but using the right move at the right time. Since you don't want your ulti to be deflect by your enemy right?(Yes everyone have a default spell to neglect any damage for 1 second) So think first but be quick.

-A beautiful designed terrain

Probably the best point of OotF, I spent hours to simply create the best terrain that I can produce for everyone's enjoyment, beautiful and attractive (and a friend of mine said its looks a whole different game), but just enough to not distract you for the main goal. To win.

-Cool spells which is implemented for strategical purposes

One might probably ask me, 'why does everyone have the same spell, isn't that boring?' my answer is no, hell no since I really think of what kind of spells will perfectly fit to this type of game, spells that serves its total purpose, 'to be strategical for the whole game but not boring'. Actually it is better to see it for yourself.

-Knockback other players when hitting/damaging them(Currently turned off)

Actually will you believe that this is the core system of the game? It also boost all the spell by adding the knockback effect. And it doesn't only knockback one unit, it knockback every unit that it collide with! Of course it also add a realistic feeling since enemy get knockback everytime you hit them.(normal attack or a spell).

The Future of OotF

Q: What will be the the future of OotF Arena?

A: Well i'm looking for a long term project and OotF Arena might be the one, since Chaos Arena is a big bust(but I'm still fixing all the bugs) looks like OotF will be updated for time to time since its a easy to handle project with its simplicity. From the gameplay, terrain.. it just that all the ideas clicked and worked perfectly.

Version 1.1 is currently available on Hiveworkshop, but i'm gonna upload it here sometime tomorrow. Since that 1.1 have no bugs with 5 multiplayer test and tons by myself. It looks like 2.0 will be the next version and will be the 3rd patch for the terrain that will open another area. Items shops will also become available with interesting items with it etc.

Since everything is set and all I need to do is add content OotF Arena is moving on the right direction.

Well there is something that I can't handle myself and its making a intelligent AI, I wonder if the community can help me with it.

Anyway thanks for reading.

Your Site Director, SonofJay

I've tested the map and it looks nice. Some stuff that you should review are the following:


I'll add the replay. Version 1.4.1
Title: OotF: Arena
Post by: SonofJay on January 03, 2013, 10:45:33 AM

The minimap usage: Is the camera looking in the opposite direction to the normal viewing? because when I move in a direction the camera view moves in the opposite one.

This is a bad thing that I made before I started the terrain. Please bear with it, i'm planning to remove the mini-map anyway.

Quote
The AI: the units work well, they move and attack, but I could see they don't upgrade their abilities, I assume that is a WIP

Believe me, I only made the ai for 1 or 2 hours or so. It serves it purpose anyway.

Quote
Units got stuck after a while: Suddenly all the enemy units became invulnerable. Is the stuck thing you comment in your map??

What the? I didn't get you there, you mean they become invulnerable? All? Never experienced it but i'm gonna check the replay later. I don't have a copy of the map on my desktop.

Quote
About this stuck, itshould happen for terrain stuff but not for spells (specially permastuns) I'd suggest to show me the code and I can help you improving it

This is a big problem but I thought the '-unstuck' command can solve it since I remove the stuck hero then replace it with a new one then set its hp and level. But its not available for AI yet since they can't type. D: I don't know if there is a way to detect it.

The least that we can do is to re-code the spells. >.<

I'll give you the code of the spells (leap and night glimpse) so you can check them out.

Thanks!

Hahaha, moyack, the invulnerable thingy that you're saying is that a player already won the game. You didn't set a kill requirement that is why it was automatically set to default which is 10 kills. Hmmm, I think I should make  the announcement of a winner more stand out or maybe permanent so you won't miss it.

Definitely, please add a bigger thing to announce the winner :)

Okay, will do it for 1.5!

Anyway, looks like I haven't announce it yet, but OotF is bound to be updated everyweek(Sunday) adding items, balances, and other stuffs. Which is already proven since it already reached 1.4.1

Actually for this small project, weekly update is already damn long, but I just need to keep distance on updates so its everyweek.

Is this support for single player too? Because i'll be lonely without AI in single player mod!
Title: OotF Arena
Post by: SonofJay on March 17, 2013, 11:40:31 AM
I already made a ai on version 1.2 which is the most latest version atm. Check it out!
Title: OotF Arena
Post by: Judash137 on March 17, 2013, 11:41:03 AM
Well. the road is just a circle, it's hard to run for your life with only a circle like that, can you make some shortcut road to use more tactic.
- You can use Hardened Skin ability of Mountain Giant to reduced damage taken to 1 instead of using Invulnerable for Deflect. Defend is meaning get a hit but take no damage, it look more convincing than enemy didn't attack you at all.When using defend, you add that ability to that unit for 1 second then removed it when the spell end
- I like the knock back when you get hit, of course when unit have Hardened Skin ability and in defend state, it shouldn't get knock back at all
- The terrain look very good for a RPG map, but not good for arena map because it's quite hard to realize where is your enemy among tons of flame and colorful stone!
Title: OotF Arena
Post by: SonofJay on March 17, 2013, 11:41:53 AM
-3rd patch for the terrain is coming soon expanding the current area to about 30-70%
-Okay will put that on priority.
-Well my purpose is to bring players to a whole new experience of terrain that probably never seen before on a arena map. And well, i'm always being asked to make a rpg, but its too much for me.(Proof is my drop project 'TSOVE') RPG is just damn big for a one man so let me bring my talent to a more simpler genre that I can finish.

And thanks for the feedback! Hows the ai btw? Also 1.2.1 will be uploaded in a minute, I just tweak the ai a bit since they're not using the ulti on 1.2.
Title: OotF Arena
Post by: Judash137 on March 17, 2013, 11:42:34 AM
Well you should teach the AI using shoot spell from long distance, since it cant lock on at fraraway enemy when using throw spear.
Title: OotF Arena
Post by: SonofJay on March 17, 2013, 11:52:26 AM
Yeah i'm taking that on 'one of the priority for 1.3', the throw spear is the only spell that the  ai can't use.
Title: OotF Arena
Post by: Judash137 on March 17, 2013, 11:53:15 AM
- Some ally playmode 'll be good.
- Add a checking damage system so you can know which attach hit normal unit and which hit a defend unit!

I tested your map with some friends not to long ago. It was very fun at first, but then one of my friends got stun-locked countless of times.. And it got too frustrating.. :( Otherwise, a fun and good map.
 I just wonder; why do you use pause instead of "some-stunspell-casting dummies"? xd (Or whatever people would call them)
Title: OotF Arena
Post by: SonofJay on July 26, 2013, 05:30:13 AM
Thanks for playing it. You can try to use the noob work around for the perma stun "-unstuck". It will give you a fresh hero with the same level as your first one but the spell need to be learn again.

I didn't really made some of the spells there.

Ok. We did use the -unstuck, but it did kinda break the gameplay when he hade to do it alot.. As said, I really like the concept of the map (and the terrain, you should probably hide the minimap or something, though :P ) ^^

Yeah I know it sucks but that is the only work around I know without remaking all the spells atm (and probably be like that forever D:). Well the map wasn't really made for a competitive gameplay so I guess you guys can have fun by using that command :D.

Glad that you liked it, only a few people really acknowledge this map.

Dunno if when it will be release but I was working on and off this past few months on an update with a new simple addition on the gameplay(Rune system) and a couple of items and balancing.

Thanks and have fun playing it again.

About that perma stun issue, Do you need any help?? I think this can be fixed with a nice jass tweak :) If you want I can help...

Oh god, I will be so thankful if you can help boss.

I'll pm you the map later.

Hello Sonofjay, remember me
I never played your map since our first met
