NEW MAP! - Mono TD

Post  Saucer on Tue Apr 01, 2014 11:44 am


We have decided that it is time to refocus our efforts and create a new game, building on the basic elements that we know from Legion TD.

As of today, all Legion TD projects have been canceled and we'll be working exclusively on Mono TD from now on.

The new Mono TD map is based on the Legion TD map, but is single player only. It can be hosted with a bot for convenience/distribution purposes, but that is not required. The game itself is completely single player.

Mono TD features an advanced highscore system. You can share your score on our website (screenshot upload required) and we'll regularly update the global score list manually.

The game basically works like Legion TD, but the layout is somewhat different, and a unique hero system plays a significant role in the game.

We are still in the early stages, but feel free to ask questions and share your thoughts. A test version will be available soon.

Here's a preliminary FAQ:



- Why single player?

It's the only way to perfectly balance a map. Makes sense if you think about it. You can never truly balance a multiplayer map.



- How does the hero system work?

You pick a hero at the beginning of the game. Your hero does not fight the creeps, but must collect little green "turtles" that drop during the creep waves. This gives you something to do between build phases.



- Turtles?

Yes, turtles.

Collect and combine the correct turtles to gain a better highscore!

Although your hero can not fight, he can use the energy from the turtles to perform a magic dance.



- What does the magic dance do?

The magic dance happends at the beginning of every round and provides a bonus to your fighters (like an aura).

The dance bonus depend on your hero type and the turtles you collect.



- What about the King?

The King has been replaced by a giant King Turtle. The King Turtle randomly and slowly eats some of the creeps as they pass by, but doesn't stop them.

The creeps continue to walk past the King Turtle and counts as a leak when they reach the Rainbow Gate. The game is over when you have leaked 50 creeps.



- Any other major changes?

Yes! Single player is opening up a lot of new possibilities.

For one thing, forget about x3 and lag issues! Initial testing shows that we can do at least x10 amount of creeps without lag. This is because we have just 1 player instead of 8.

We are currently balancing against x8 creeps. If you like big fights, you'll love this.



- When can I try it?

Soon.



- Wait, WHAT! no more Legion TD?

Correct. We are "taking it to the next level" here.

Mono TD is simply the next logical step in the evolution.



- I have more questions!

That's not really a question, now is it? Haha! Wink

Please go ahead and post your comments and questions in this thread. We'd love to hear what you think.

That's the spirit!

But yes, all Legion TD versions have been canceled. It's all about Mono TD now. Single player is the future.

Well, that's up to Clan UC... but yeah, I think they will.

Mono TD is simply a much better map, so it would make sense to host it instead of Mega.

Just one correction:

LegionTD Pro, before cancellation, has finished its four year long journey - the stable version is posted in the thread below:

Haha, yeah...

Well, moving this to archive now.

For the record:   THIS WAS AN APRIL'S FOOL PRANK  Wink

Just in case somebody stumbles upon this and takes it too seriously. Don't worry! Legion TD development will continue as planned.
