Re: [REMAKE] Desolator/Skadi/Maelstrom/Sange
Not sure if this thread is still active but..
As a map editor myself I understand your point, so to make it clear to some people who don't understand...
HE'S SUGGESTING, WITH THE (POSSIBLE) TRIGGERS, FOR ORB EFFECTS LIKE DESO, EOS, MALESTROM ETC TO STACK.
I'm too busy nowadays to try this, so the first thoughts I had when I was reading this was..well, wouldn't creating (rapidly..imagine 10 people using AGI heroes with deso AND eos AND malestrom AND sange) units and activating triggers repeatedly lag the game? I think I read somewhere that it will...right now, many people are already lagging on laptops with Freezing Field, Echo Slam, Black Hole and Light Strike Array appearing on their computers. I think we need to spare a thought for low-spec computer users..=X
Another point is, I think IceFrog made the orb effects orb effects so that they aren't stacked. Different items are made for different builds, for separate usage..if Sange and EoS is put together, perhaps combined with a Deso or Maelstrom..don't you think that the point is lost? I mean, making an opponent slowed till the minimum movespeed and then cruelly raping with Chain Lightnings...the point of luck is kind of lost in the game. And with auras..I think a more workable idea (though still gay) would be create a ward with 1-1 damage, 0.02s CD(it's gone after 0.01s..attack once), and issuing a trigger for it to attack the target that you attacked so that the target is slowed would be better. Rather than two stacking auras of armor reduction and slow, stacking on one person would be sufficient..
SUMMARY (in order of importance):
1) Orb effects were perhaps not MEANT to be stacked? Though from range and melee frost this is kinda not true (maybe)
2) Um..Weave, SF, Wave of Terror, Assault Cuirass + New Deso + Slithereen Crush..-24(-30),-5,-5, -5, -6, that's like..200 damage on five -46(-51) armor heroes? If we add another Amplify Damage to top it off..one poor guy with -61 armor..and five with -51 (as if -45 wasn't enough, you topped another -6 on it)
3) Oh I just realized! Even without the Deso, it's already -45. Try out some time..
Uh..have fun with this thing.
