VOTING - Hero and Tower Amalgam

Hero and Tower Amalgam Contest - Voting

Sorry it's a day late, yesterday was pretty busy for me. Today is pretty busy too, but I have a bit of time between coming home from work and other commitments, so here goes. On recommendation from AerisDraco, instead of voting for a single persons entry, I have split HEROES and TOWERS into separate lists, so you can vote for each by themselves. This way, two people have the potential to win (unless by some weird luck one person bags both top scores). I should also add that I have mixed them up, so the person who submit Hero One, did not necessarily submit Tower A. This way you can't judge both entries to one person.

The rules for voting:
  • You can only vote for one entry (per category), and voting for your own entry is not allowed.
  • Please vote by clearly stating your choice in your post, preferably in bold. Again, you can submit your vote in PM to remain private, and you can change your vote at any time by posting a second time. Please do not edit your posts to change your votes.
  • Voting will run until Sunday 26th July.

So here we go, Heroes first they are entries ONE to SIX.

-Teleport

Lore
When he was young, Dur'na showed great aptitude for magic, but was subsequently kidnapped for his power. He trained for years under the master of Vez'nan and Malagar, but he managed to eventually run away. Still believing that some were evil, like the Linireans, he stole some of their early gunpowder weapons, and learned how to use them in his wild days. Eventually, from his travels, he stumbled upon a place of worship for those who were brought up in the darkness. He joined this small sect, and is training to get rid of his dark powers. But some are so deeply ingrained in him that they will forever lurk within him, whether he likes it or not. However, the leaders of that sect told him to try to get rid of the last remnants of his power by fighting for good, such as the Elven army.

Quotes

Skills : Secondary
killing an enemy has a 40% chance to get Malivan into a raging state that will make his next attack in 6 seconds heal 50% of his total health. When in this state the hero appears to be surrounded a flaming red circle.

Lore:
Malivan lived in his birthplace, Hammerhold, for 17 years. Before leaving his family to participate in the campaign against the desert rogues and their leader. Led by a Northlands general, he arrived accompanied by 67 other warriors; Assassins, archers, wizards, even Dwarfs to the heart of the dark cave within the Emberspike mountains.

After a long journey, after an epic fight, Umbra was defeated, and the brave men claimed victory. But, sacrifices have to be taken, for the dark lord has harvested the lives of thousands of people. Including Malivan. It starts at as a neverending nightmare, you can't wake up, you can't make it stop! Alone, he survived the horrors of his own fears, of his own mind. Suddenly, a voice breaks the deep sleep he was in. "WAKE UP!" Echoed in the somber stretching halls of the cave. The voice grew larger and larger. Malivan opens his eyes, staying in place, shocked, and heavily breathing. "Where am I?!"WHERE AM I?!! Cried Malivan, tears clearly visible on his face.

"No time to talk, mortal. For my hour of justice has arrived. I need you to reshape the past, to save me, to save your friends, to save your self. A voice was heard on the right side of the man. The Hammer of Ages may guide you, stop Malicia, you must break the tear of Elynie!"

"But.. who are you? And how do I trust you..?" Asked Malivan while simply laying on the cold ground. "I'm the one you probably don't want me to be" the mysterious man simply introduced himself to him. and finished talking by saying "You don't want to trust me, you just have too". Malivan stared at him, lost, before finding himself in Aredhel, a yellow haired elf gave him his hand and said, "Stand up, we must move on."

Malivan blindly followed the elves, and noticed that the powers of The Hammer of Ages had decayed, nonetheless, he was greatly strong and had a strong link with elements. Probably caused by the time travel, and the fact that the Hammer of Ages didn't even exist back in the day, but.. what day was it? He doesn't know, he just has to follow his heart. Maybe he will find the solution, to save his life.


Quotes
"I'm always calm before I storm."
"Awaken , it's time to feed!"
"I am life you are death."
"I will be your god once again."
"The earth belongs to me!"
"Break yourself upon my body!"
Death: "Dang, the luck."



ENTRY THREE wrote:Marax
(Magnus Spellbane + Durax)
(Arcane Elemental)

Ranked as a 2nd-tier, $5 hero.

Marax is crystallized humanoid wizard, dressed in purple robes that are slightly shredded by the crystal spikes protruding from his body. His crystals are a light purple with a white glow in the centre. He wields a staff made of pure crystal, with small purple gems floating around the top, which bears a purple crystal vessel that glows when used. Marax has the face and hair of Magnus, but the hairline and all facial features cannot be seen, as it is a purely crystal silhouette of his face.

Statistics

Health: 400
Regeneration: 40
Magic Ranged Damage: 6-9 Shoots from staff once per 1.5 seconds.
Melee True Damage: 6-9 Whacks an enemy with his staff once per second.
Armour: None
Speed: Average
Respawn: 25s

Skills

Realflection: (Active; Varies) Every 75/50/25 seconds, Marax creates a controllable copy of himself for 50 seconds.

Clones have 2 variations that cycle as each is spawned: The 1st is a lighter purple with more white inside, and the 2nd is a darker purple with less white inside when compared to the original Marax. When selected, they are also labeled Realflection 1 or 2 depending on their brightness. With the upgrade fully maxed out, Marax starts off every level with 2 clones next to him to avoid waiting for the ability to charge and be used.

Mirror Image: (10s) Marax makes 1/2/3 less potent clone(s) of himself for 10 seconds with 40/50/60% of his health.

Mirror Images can be created by Realflections, as well, for a total of 9 Mirror Images and 12 Maraxes altogether. Mirror Images can't use Realflection, but they can use Arcane Blade as soon as the ability charges for them. They are unable to move once spawned.

Arcane Blade: (9s) Creates a magical crystal blade and slashes for 40/60/80 True Damage that deals 50/75/100 damage to unprotected targets.

Enemies lacking armour take additional damage. Applies to magic resistant enemies, as well. When used on an enemy who still survives the attack, thr blade shatters. If not, parts of it flip around 180 degrees, disappearing from sight.

Fusion: (35s after the fusion occurs) When in combat with the same enemy, Maraxes can combine for 7/11/15 seconds, gaining 150% of their stats combined with multiple Arcane Blades.

The stats of each Marax are added to each other based on current health and damage, and increased by 50% to be better than simply having multiple Maraxes together. More Realflections and Mirror Images can join into the fusion after being made as long as they melee the same enemy that the fusion is attacking. Then fusion is about 50% larger, and moves like Durax as it travels, albeit slightly slower. When using Arcane Blade, it creates one blade for every Marax fused within, and slams them all against a target one by one in a single motion, keeping blades that don't shatter until the fusion wears off. If killed in this state, all fused Maraxes are lost.

Sapphire Storm: (Activated; 60s) Traps targeted group of enemies in crystals for 4/6/8/10 seconds reduced by 1 for every trapped enemy and rains down magical crystals on the area dealing 5/10/15/20 True Damage in 1/2/3/4 volleys.

Volleys refer to every time the crystals rain down in a complete circle just like Arcane Storm. No more than 9 enemies can be trapped at once, and a single enemy trapped will be stuck long enough for every crystal to damage it. Crystals deal small area damage, and can hurt enemies outside of the trapped ones, but not with as much guarantee. Can be aimed on the ground and still activate the volleys.

Secondary Skills:
1) Teleport: When ordered across a long distance, Marax waves his staff over himself. All of his crystals turn 180 degrees and disappear, reappearing at the desired location almost instantly.
2) Melee True Damage: Just like Durax, Marax's melee attacks ignore all resistances.

Lore: Marax is the product of Magnus's ambitions to become more powerful and Durax's desire to be able to create even more of himself. Magnus, being a wizard, had been able to keep himself alive and middle aged up to the days of KR, and was legitimately middle-aged during Origins's plot, and thus looked the same when he found and experimented on Durax.

The experiment failed, creating a new entity that had its own conscience. It found a note by the table it woke up on that read, "Marax," a name that Magnus and Durax were still disputing over before they were combined. The entity decided to keep that as its name.

Marax soon found his ability to create clones of himself, first weaker clones with very little willpower, or any power at all, but eventually stronger ones that would work and think proactively. He gazed into his own refleaction in the water, touching it, and accidentally created his first clone of himself. He later practiced this power and made more, though they lasted for limited amounts of time, and he could only have so many.

The experiment saw how short the lifespawn of his clones were, and knew how quickly other, real beings could die as well. Marax questioned the value of his own life, and the fact that he could make more of himself isolated him from others. He knew that he had a duty to protect the lives of others, so he enlisted in the army to fight evils that would otherwise take the valuable lives of the innocent early. With his self-made army, he brings chaos into the battlefield as he fights enemies across an entire landscape or overpowers a single foe as one, mighty entity. Marax is a literal army of his own, able to take on any situation in any way.

Quotes: Marax and his clones speak with the sinister voice of Magnus Spellbane, combined with the loud yet chilling echo made by Durax's voice.

1) "You've never had friends like us."
2) "I'm more than twice the man you'll ever be!"
3) "Forever fight as one."
4) "We're like brothers... Only closer."
(Death) "You're just mad 'cause you're single."

If the enemy is killed prematurely, the aura will transfer to the nearest foe.

Skills : Secondary

Frauwl can fly to distant location. He will walk to nearby places, and stay grounded when not commanded to move.

Lore

The Dragon Guardian is an ancient being of a long lost species, powerful entities who once roam the Overworld and keep the devils of the Void at bay. Over long, long time, things decay and many Guardians decease, their structured global society falls apart slowly after millennia at war, and there is also the aspect of people's increasing lack of understanding of the Guardians' way. Few of them are left now, many are hidden, or bounded, such as the case of Frauwl, his soul chained to a magical rock in deep cavern. It is the Dwarves in their search for their lost city and unleashed him, allowing Frauwl to continue his duty of protecting the world.

Quotes

"Dragon fire cleanse all evil."

"Let the enemies come."

"Rise a dragon, rise a knight."

"There are powers beyond mortal comprehension."

Not too long ago, the coldstep mines have been abandoned. The Ha'kraj trolls are now using it as their home. Legends say, that a mighty dragon resides on the peak of icewind pass. Even the trolls are interested in legends like these, and they plan on finding it. It would be an awesome ally to have for the trolls, because a dragon could help secure a dominant position against the humans. A group of trolls scaled the icy mountain, and they actually found the hidden lair of the dragon. Maybe trolls aren't as mindless as they look.

A troll scout was sent into the lair. A headless troll came back, flying through the air. It was clear that the dragon didn't want to join the trollish forces. Now the whole group went in, hoping they could overwhelm the dragon with numbers. The dragon did what he could to protect himself, but he quickly found himself overwhelmed. The trolls managed to kill the dragon, although multiple trolls have died in the fight. The trolls claimed the treasure that the dragon has collected over the years as their own. they sold it's blood and flesh (dragon blood was a wanted material for sorcery) and they threw the bones of a cliff, straight into the cold bitterness.

The dragon's bones were scattered all around a deep pit. The intense coldness pierced right through them. Although lifeless, the bones still kept some of their former magic inside them. Suddenly, a gust ran through the ravine. The bones were lifted up and formed a dragon again. The icy gust began to flow through the bones. A heart of ice formed inside the mass of bones, held together by a blue, cold magic. The dragon rose up, and swore to take revenge on those who stole his treasure, his most valuable possession.

Quotes
Bonora doesn't speak, instead, he roars (like Ashbite). Although Ashbite roars somewhat aggressively, Bonora roars in a calm way, with a mystic tune behind it.

This cheers in-range towers up, increasing their fire rate by 1/3,2/3,3/3 of the next 'fire rate level' (so when maxed, a nearby tower with a fire rate of 'fast' would have a fire rate of 'very fast', 'slow' would be 'average', etc.).

ENTRY D wrote:Contained Magus
(Wild Magus + DWAARP)
(Magical Artillery)

Description:A Wild Magus suspended in the air, her hair loose and flowing unhindered. 4 large spires of metal are on equidistant corners of a square platform on the ground that opens up, where the Magus is brought upwards and contained by lazers zapped from the spires. The lazers are blue, but turn orange near the Magus's body. Orange shockwaves pulse out from the Magus when in combat, as she struggles to break free.

About: Unbeknown to the Magi is the true power held within them, that our Dwarven techonology has found a way to release with stability and assurance, albeit without the Magus's consent.

Fire Rate: Very Fast (just like the Wild Magus, 4 times per second)
Attacks by emanating a pulse that reaches across the entire range of the tower, harming land-bound and airborne units alike.
Damage: 11-21 Magic Damage
Range: Great (like a DWAARP)

Skills

Steel Pulse: (Passive) Sensors detect the deaths of enemies in vicinity of the tower and channel magic into their weak bodies, causing deceased enemies in range to explode for 40/60/80 Magic AOE Damage. (250/150/150G)

Explosions are about the size of normal Eldritch Dooms but slightly smaller. They can harm flying enemies even when ground enemies explode, and vice versa.

Core Blast: (30s) Drains the lifeforce of the Magi, destroying it and creating an explosion that deals 240/480/720 magic damage in the range of the tower. (333/333/333G)

Tower is disabled for 5 seconds after use as another Magus is brought up from the platform and contained.

Quotes:
1) "I wanna explode!" "I wanna detonate!" (Upgrading Steel Pulse)
2) "You're tearing me apart!" (Upgrading Core Blast)
3) "They shall be stifled in the vault." (When first built, said by the Dwarves rather than the Magus like the other quotes.)



ENTRY E wrote:Battlebot Laboratory (Battle-Mecha + Bladesinger Hall)
Experimental Lab (Barracks)

The Battlebot Laboratory is a factory-like building, with whitewashed walls, opaque windows, and an garage-like door. On top, there is an antenna-like structure.
The Battlebots themselves are small, ROB-like creations (Super Smash Bros.), e.g. with conveyor type wheels, two arms, and a rover-like head. However, on the side of each arm, there are two blades. When fighting, these blades spin rapidly to deal damage.

The Battlebot Laboratory produces experimental clockwork dwarven robots, deadly, but frail. They serve their purpose as well as possible until broken beyond repair.

Unit HP: 150
Unit Armour: Medium
Unit Damage: 10 damage per second (Spins blade-arms)
Unit Respawn: 10 seconds

Skills

Innate:
-Rally Point
-DPS instead of a range of damage values

Liquid Metal (300/150/150) (Passive)
Gives the bots a chance to respawn when killed, equivalent to the Blessing of Elynie. At level II and III, give the robot an additional 20% dodge chance per level.

Taser (200/200/200) (Active, 8 seconds)
Out of the arm, fire taser cables which stun an enemy and deal 40 damage and stun for 1/2/3 seconds. Is ranged, can be used in melee.

Bladejump (250/200/200) (Active, 10 seconds)
If a flying enemy flies over a Battlebot not in melee, its arms will turn to its sides, and the blades will send it upwards. It will remain in the air for 1 second, dealing 50/75/100 damage to any flying enemies. If an enemy is under them when they land, they take 100 physical damage.

"Hasta la vista!"



ENTRY F wrote:Tower Name High Guardian Tower (Knights Templar + Bladesinger Hall)
Type Barracks
Description A tall, fortified gray castle with heavy wooden gates. Its soldiers are oversize Knights Templar (yes, oversize!) with gray crosses on their clothes. The men wield two greatswords, which they fling and spin at ease when idle and moving, as if those are feathers. The swords can, literally, fly, if their owners wish, and each two will cross each other to form a grave when the user dies.
About High Guards are masters of their swords, handling them not only with superior expertise but also supernatural powers.

Attack Rate Quickly
Damage 10-25 per slash, two slashes per attack.

* Each slash has 7.5% to cause profuse bleeding, dealing 75 True Damage over 3s.

Unit HP 350
Unit Armour Medium

Unit Respawn 17 seconds

Skills

Song of the Swords [15 seconds]

All alive soldiers fling their swords spinning to enemies in range, each soldier targets no more than one unit and deal 15-20/20-35/25-50 damage with each sword.

"Y' know, even swords can fly."

Blessing of Blood

Each kill and each comrade's death enrages High Guards, making them invulnerable to damage and afflictions for 3/4/5 seconds while regenerating 30/40/50 health. In the period, they also gain double bleeding chance and deal 15-40 damage per slash to bleeding targets.

Effect can be renewed, but not stacked. Instant-kill won't kill them instantly with Blessing active, but will remove the effect after a 1.5 stun.

"For the fallen!"

Bond of Fellowship

The presence of High Guards inspires nearby soldiers, giving them 10/15/20 points of shield for each unit affected by this skill. Limit of 240 points of shield. This shield regenerates by 10/15/20 points/sec along with health, and decays by the same amount if the Guards leave.

"Courage, my friends!"

Quote "I won't let no evil pass my guard, for it is my duty to protect the goodness of Linirea."

Quote when moved

"A new day dawns, a battle begins."

"Today, we shall fight!"

"Tis not too late to build a better world."

"Guardians on the way."

Re: VOTING - Hero and Tower Amalgam

by Big Bad Bug » Tue Jul 21, 2015 6:23 pm

Oh man, the hero names are hilarious! :lol:

I want to vote, though I will put a long amount of time into deciding my votes. So far, my thoughts on only a portion of the entries:

Durna is pretty imbalanced. The damage bonus per death seems interesting, as it can force the player to either kill him multiple times to be strong at the end of the game or leave it to get an early bonus, which I like. However, it seems like that would matter a lot for his playstyle, but the rest of the hero doesn't seem to have any focus on it. The abilities benefit from Shade Sight, but they don't seem like things that would go well with a playstyle centered on gradually getting stronger against certain enemy types. They're just... other skills, without a central focus.

Malivan has a cool name. ;) I think these skills are pretty neat and balanced, until we get to the last 2 skills. I have no idea how long the stormcloud lasts, so it tells me nothing about how balanced it is. I can't just "imagine" it is balanced because the other skills do have cooldowns, along with the other entries. Also, the secondary skill is so completely OP...

Faustus + Grawl is really OP, and while the skills are creative, I think the execution could've been better. The fire that provides a damage buff should've been something that could constantly be used and keep Frauwl inside of for a consistent buff, but instead the damage is too high, forcing it to deactivate and cooldown. Even then, it still is really OP, dealing 360 AOE magic damage on too of a damage boost, not to mention how strong everything else is. There are a lot of things going on with each skill, too, and it just seems superfluous.

Maybe I'll post my thoughts on the towers, or maybe I'll just vote. I have no outstanding preference thus far, though.

Same. :yey:

I want to make a hero but have no ideas. :x
I want a hero to be someone that I would want to be irl like Karkinos bc hes so hot.
Imagine if I could make a bunch of myself and go slay everyone and brush bbb's stank teeth
Plus I like the other thang because it reminds me of what I want to do to people at school especially Lucas and Kaitlyn Steele :evil:

Contained Magus is very nice. Not sure about a hero yet.

Contained Magus makes me feel bad for the Wild Magus, one of my favorite towers. So my vote goes to High Guardians. Dur'na for the hero.

The High Watchtower is one of the only 2 towers that isn't ludicrously OP, which immediately sets it ahead of the High Guardians, Arcane Keepers, etc. which pushes me to vote for: Entry B as the tower. For heroes, after reading some more, I just can't pick one because they all seemed flawed. Ruxx and Bragsa are just the same skills as before but with the slightest of aesthetic changes, making it really uncreative but at least a good combo. The others are imbalanced but at least more original, for the most part. Hopefully it's OK to just vote for a tower and not a hero...?

Not really...

And dn't forget you are voting on how well the two have been combined more so than how balanced they are. Imbalanced heroes and towers was always going to be an issue here given the content.

Yeah, balance shouldn't be a part of the voting. Since the games are really different when it comes to numbers.

Balance, in my view, was one of the obstacles making the contest more difficult and fun. :P

I will vote for whichever hero and tower seems the most fun to use and valuable to have in the game, because that's the purpose of introducing a new hero or special tower into the game. We made all of these heroes to be imagined existing in the game, so why make heroes for thr game if they're not going to be viable for it? We may as well have combined 2 heroes to be a stuffed animal or a jigsaw puzzle if they aren't going to serve a real purpose or have any presence in-game.
