[HotA]The Red Tent

Gigantic single-player map for Cove lovers.
Start with a remarkable hero

yet with no army or resources

Ok, this was quite misleading.
You have an event just in front of the door giving you all this:



And that is how you can get 8 heroes day 1 and immediately start taking control over the map.

And manage to take all six Cove towns in one week.

Build 6 Maelstroms in 14 days and take 4 external ones for a better growth, yet look in Thieves Guild and dispair

Never see your heroes build screwed, you will find Witch Huts giving you every useful skill.


For the first time in my last attempt, Tan didn't released one of his heroes, so here is a taste of what is waiting for you. Not even one of the biggest ones.


The battle for the Schakles of War


The battle for the Orb of Vulnerability



Get map

The Red Tent

At least for the last battle screen, the placement of stacks is far from optimal. Or it was just to brag about how nice look 2 stacks of titans on corners?

Check battlefield.

You are right. One stack in the third position would be easily protected by the lake. But I used the Phoenixes to block the Crystal Dragons, while I Blinded the Rusties and hit hard on the Fairies, they all remain in their side, trying to free the Crystals and I could shoot freely everytime. Plus I had already so many troops the fight would be won in Quick Combat.
The problem with randomness is that I never know how many troops or of what types will player have. Usually, I have much more Archangels but not that many Titans.
I guess the best split for this army is always keep all others in one stack and just split the phoenixes. But I need to upgrade the birds or give them to another hero.
These two (quite similar but with very different numbers) are battles in Pandora Boxes, where I always split them like that and I've been getting some good results.

The extra creatures in the second are the reward from the first.
And this is how Corkes looks after the second one

Another problem with randomness in this particular map is that when your biggest opponent, King Minos (Gunnar), avoids fighting you early he may get completely overpowered.

immo, for good pics just use without HD then plain screen 800x600 (or HD 800x600), this way everyone will get a correct view of whats going on. In your pics I can't see sh*t

@Salamandre Thanks for posting, my previous post was getting crowded.
-----------------------------------------------------------------

Month 4 Update

Corkes

Hella

Grail

And these garrison heroes for extra resources and growth bonus







For a total income of

plus five Ramparts with Treasuries built (and the real amount of gold at this moment is missing a digit, it is in fact:301 021 537).
It's time to start using Diplomacy on the Azure Dragons...

Ok, for my first Hota game, installed your map then launched via HD mod. The description of the map says "map is unplayable, please fix in the editor". I updated both HD and Hota yet it shows same thing. Any idea?

Yes, ignore it. It's because of the number of heroes available being too small.
I made that on purpose so that defeated AI heroes cycle often but sometimes I get that message too, I got it in the match from where these pictures are and had no problems with it.
But when you exhaust your available heroes the picture of the last one disappears from the tavern screen, you can still hire him despise of that.

Umm ok, but why don't you put some other heroes in inaccessible prisons, so the game now thinks number is ok and player doesn't get strange message.

Because I wasn't getting the message in the beginning. But I may be wrong and it's because the number of dwellings exceeds the maximum number allowed. Yet, that is a recent HotA feature: unlimited dwellings.
But here the map is playable and Erathianer could start it, too.
And some guys that downloaded it from Maps4Heroes had already finish it, too.

After some comments in Maps4Heroes I'm working on a newer/harder version.
It basically adds wells near the one-way entrance monoliths on the surface and gives some extra starting troops, boots and gloves to every opponent.

You can download it from here:
Impossible Version

Did you beat King Minos/Gunnar? After that it's an overkill, but it's a fast overkill.

It's not a map for hardcore single-players, I'm still not one of them. I've created a map I can finish.
