Has anyone played WARLOCK before? which is a WC3map.

STARDODGEBALL is the best arena map of SC2 in my opinion.I enjoy it so much as to forget eating or sleeping Smile Good work Rut!

I wonder whether you guys have played WARLOCK,which is an amazing wc3map.Its way of playing is very similer to STARDODGEBALL. However,players in WARLOCK usually knock/push/bash/force their oppenents to the outer zone which is filled with lava,while players in STARDODGEBALL usually get close to their opponents and BANGBANGBANG~

Though the strategy of these two games is different,STARDOGEBALL can draw lessons from WARLOCK,which already existed for 4 years and still updating.

For example,when we are hit by a ball,some knockback would be reasonable.When two balls dash against each other,they'll be disappered.When two players get too close,they will push each other away,not overlapping.Sorry about my poor English,but you can understand,don't you? I'm suggesting that every elements of the map be physic logical.

It would be lovely that you add some WARLOCK spells into STARDODGEBALL,such as TIME SHIFT,LINK,Meteor,Drain...etc.

Anyway,wish STARDODGEBALL be more and more popular!

Thanks for the post!

Unfortunately a physics system is very difficult to implement. I don't plan on changing the core mechanics of the game (people being thrown from the force of dodgeball hits) because I'm content with how things work at the moment. Actually it'd be kind of cool to make that a perk--giving your dodgeballs knockback.

That being said, I have not played the WC3 game you're talking about but am intrigued to hear new ideas about abilities. Could you share some of the abilities from that game that you think would work well in StarDodgeBall?

Thanks!

Of course,there're several spells in WARLOCK you might be interested in.

k) Scourge

There are some other spells in WARLOCK I didn't mention which don't fit the gameplay of DODGEBALL in my opinion. I hope these spells be helpful to your future versions. flower
