Question 1: 4.5 -> the story is great. The best is when Black Hooded Man kill Phodom's family, it's make me angry and want to take revenge for his family so bad
Question 2: 5 -> Fradz is very interesting and i love funny conversations. Btw, my favorite is Dps and too lazy to use spellcaster
Question 3: 5 -> hav some minor bugs but still 5/5  ;)
Question 4: 4 -> i like to hav more mini-boss related with side quests and they drop part of set item :P
Question 5: 4
Question 6: 5
Question 7: 4 -> some of them are long and boring
Question 8: ? -> dont remember the atmosphere of later chapters, sr :(
Question 9: 5 -> imo, spells r balance and it based on stituations. Hope Aero fixed Fradz's spell: Lighting Ball or something, Fradz's HP recover full right after using this spell
Question 10: 5 -> agree with st_slaughter, ppl have most interested in set item.
Sr my English :(

my answers almost based on alpha chapter which we can play up to chapter 7 or 8. Even in alpha version, the gameplay was still great.

Thanks for the answers. Remember to put the date and the version number you based your answers. For example it's really hard to answer to question number one if you have just played chapter 1 only.

Question 1: Story - What do you think about the story? Is it too confusing? Too simple? What is the best and the worst part in the story. Why?
4
3.3a: The story is good in the beginning but not that good in the end. Btw, I can't stand the way Phodom's wife and sons just die like that (can you Aero, resurrect them in the end?)


Question 2: Characters - What do you think about characters? Are they boring? Are they interesting? Who is your favorite character? What character you didn't liked. Why?
4
3.3a: Phodom and Galeoth have a nice appearance, but why my favorite Fradz doesn't?


Question 3: Game play - What do you think about the game play. Is it boring? Is the campaign too repetive? Is there too much killing? What is the best side of game play and what is the worst. Why?
5
Game play is unique I must say, best ever! The campaign is mixed up with story, mini games, puzzles and some nice challenges, not much killing. The best side of the game play is mini games and treasures hunting. Bosses is best of the best. The worst side of the campaign is chained quests have so little discription, it's rewards are really nice but sometimes players don't know what is need, and what isn't. I think you should add some description to items, quest items if it need to complete chain quests.

Question 4: Bosses - What do you think about the bosses at the campaign? Too hard? Too easy? Please tell me what is your favorite boss and what is the worst boss? Why?
5
3.0: Nice! Great challenges!
3.3a: a little easier, but still a nice challenges.
1.1a: too easy!
Chapter 1: I don't use any mana or health potions to kill elite and epic bosses (just 3,4 save ,load) , I think it's because I choose Phodom's special weapon and charge it up to more than 160 already.
Chapter 2: Fradz lv 10 can easily kill all bosses and mini bosses (haven't tried with Elite and Epic bosses yet). I just Invisbility, then Flash strike, then Untimate, then Meditave, then Invisbility... I can say that Meditave make the games most easier, but it's still good, you spend a little money on health and mana potions, but take a little more time to complete the campaign completely.
Like: chapter 3 Elite.
Hate: chapter 2 Epic (because of his 1-hit-kill, I hate 1-hit-kill, even if that's from a EPIC boss)

Question 5: Music/sound - What do you think about the musics at the campaign? Are they bad? Are they good? What is the best and the worst music at the campaign?
5!

Question 6: Diffculty - What is your opinion about the difficulty. Is it too hard? Too easy? Which parts of the campaigns were not balanced, what are they, and why?
5
It's well balanced, one way or another...


Question 7: Cinematics - What do you think about the cinematics? Too long? Too much? Too boring? Tell what is the worst and the best cinematic and why.
5

Question 8: Atmosphere - What do you think about the atmosphere of the campaign? Too funny? Too sad? Tell what increases and decreases the atmosphere? Why?
5
That's it! You make me smile, fell warm, and you make me "cry" somehow (yeah, cry without tears..)
Your story is SO sad, SO funny, but it's mixed up, and that's the way it should be!


Question 9: Abilities/Spells - What do you think about characters' spells? Are they balanced? Does they have good enough effects?
4
Spells are excellent, but not all.


Question 10: Items - Are the items interesting? Are they unique? Are there too much items? What should be changed?
5
This's the third's unique after BOSSES and GAME PLAY.


All things consired, how would you describe your playing experience at the campaign?
I used to play chapter 1 again after killing Epic n Elite bosses just because of Strength Charm
>"<

Would you recommend this campaign to your friends?
Needless question!

Version 1.3a BETA.

Question 1: Story - What do you think about the story? Is it too confusing? Too simple? What is the best and the worst part in the story. Why?
-Great Story! I liked Phodom's story the most! When he said a new monster was born!!!
Abit lacking on Galeoth's one though.
I do hate the fact that Phodom's family just got killed like that.
There should be a part where they , as spirits, have a talk with phodom one last time before moving on to the afterlife.
(  5  )

Question 2: Characters - What do you think about characters? Are they boring? Are they interesting? Who is your favorite character? What character you didn't liked. Why?
-Phodom = Bringer of Light and Justice , Fradz = A retarded moron that is just funny. , Galeoth = Old Grandpa with icy doom!.
They all are intresting , except for Galeoth maybe, he is too ugly ! :D:D:D
I liked Phodom the most, as he was really a great family father and a great guy!
I liked Galeoth the least, as he is old. Would you rather play as a old guy or a young energetic guy?
(  4  )

Question 3: Game play - What do you think about the game play. Is it boring? Is the campaign too repetive? Is there too much killing? What is the best side of game play and what is the worst. Why?
General: awesome, but abit too many little creeps.
I got all the Special Weapon Pack for all my Characters and they had like 200 Charges on it after each chapter, 1 , 2 and 3.
( 4 )

Question 4: Bosses - What do you think about the bosses at the campaign? Too hard? Too easy? Please tell me what is your favorite boss and what is the worst boss? Why?
Favourite boss : Maruader Boss. His special attacks were very fun to dodge !
Worst boss : The Necrophiliac at chapter 2. Surviving/Defeating him is hard. STEALING THE MAGIC BOOK FROM HIM IS HELL!. STOLE 69 TIMES BEFORE I GOT IT!
( 5 )

Question 5: Music/sound - What do you think about the musics at the campaign? Are they bad? Are they good? What is the best and the worst music at the campaign?
Add a few more music so that it is not too repetitive, that would be great. The music fits extremely well.
( 4 )

Question 6: Diffculty - What is your opinion about the difficulty. Is it too hard? Too easy? Which parts of the campaigns were not balanced, what are they, and why?
The difficulty is alright but the golems in chapter one were hard , with their stacking armor buffs!!!
( 5 )

Question 7: Cinematics - What do you think about the cinematics? Too long? Too much? Too boring? Tell me what is the worst and the best cinematic and why.
The duration is mainly alright and it is always a great pleasure to rewatch them.
Best: Chapter 2 , Frad going I suppose i should , I suppose , i suppose. I supposed i laughed.
Worst : Chapter 2 Intro. Abit long and boring.
Throughout my entire War3 Life , i always skip cinematics because they are a waste of time.
However i did not skip yours! Congrats.
( 5 )

Question 8: Atmosphere - What do you think about the atmosphere of the campaign? Too funny? Too sad? Tell what increases and decreases the atmosphere? Why?
A mix of all . A balance between serious ( galeoth) , Funny ( Fradz ) .
Properly and well done.
( 5 )
Question 9: Abilities/Spells - What do you think about characters' spells? Are they balanced? Does they have good enough effects?
Some require a bit fixing, especially with Fradz.
( 4 )

Question 10: Items - Are the items interesting? Are they unique? Are there too much items? What should be changed?
They are unique and great, do not change them but instead add new ones.
( 5 )

All things consired, how would you describe your playing experience at the campaign?
Fun and worth the LONG loading time.

Would you recommend this campaign to your friends?
Already did.

Conclusion: Thank you for making this campaign . Why? Because you do it for free and although we continuously harass you to make new chapters or updates, you never fail to make us happy.
I picked many campaigns to play and i wanted to play one that had a good story to pull me in into campaigns.
I am proud to say that i picked the right one to begin with.
In second was Wanderers of Soceria.
I wish you all the best in continuing this map and even with the arrival of Starcraft 2 , if this map is updated i shall play it again and again and again.
I Suppose so.

Good day.

Before the questionnaire, I would precise that I reach only the ch. 6 of the campaign in Alpha 3.3a. And I actually are in ch.4  in Beta 1.3a. I precise too, I don't speak English very well so... I hope you understand me.

Question 1: Story - What do you think about the story? Is it too confusing? Too simple? What is the best and the worst part in the story. Why?
(5) - It's the best campaign story ever. Very good job!  Nothing to say.

Question 2: Characters - What do you think about characters? Are they boring? Are they interesting? Who is your favorite character? What character you didn't liked. Why?
(4) - The character are very complementary, this is the most important thing. Good! Phodom is the character the more interesting because of we know more about his past and his present. We don't know a lot about Fradz and Galeoth, except the pact of Fradz is pervert and Galoth want to find Dragon. But it's not very important. Good job too.

Question 3: Game play - What do you think about the game play. Is it boring? Is the campaign too repetive? Is there too much killing? What is the best side of game play and what is the worst. Why?
(4) - I could give a 5 for the amazing job you done with the new controls box. They are a lot of new and interesting things. That's very impressive. But they are still a lot of bug (I know it's only Beta). I like the idea of choose a "pack" of item at the beginning. I like the "black merchant" thing, too. The thing I don't like is the fact there are a lot of "click" to reach the spell book, sometimes that make me a little slow again bosses.

Question 4: Bosses - What do you think about the bosses at the campaign? Too hard? Too easy? Please tell me what is your favorite boss and what is the worst boss? Why?
(4) - Four again!! Yeah I know, it's a really good job too. But there still are a lot of balance to do (I already told about what exactly). I like the epic boss ch.3 (Omega). Hard spell, some other enemies to kill, puzzles... The worst boss... I don't know really. The 2 big "cactus" in ch.4 is not very realistic.

Question 5: Music/sound - What do you think about the musics at the campaign? Are they bad? Are they good? What is the best and the worst music at the campaign?
(~) - I'm not very interesting about that so... Nothing chocked me or something. If you want some good background music. I remember a very good game about that, it's "Valkyrie Profile Silmera" on PS2 or all the Final Fantasy are good too^^.

Question 6: Diffculty - What is your opinion about the difficulty. Is it too hard? Too easy? Which parts of the campaigns were not balanced, what are they, and why?
(3) - Ah!! We already talk about that in "Agility" topic.

Question 7: Cinematics - What do you think about the cinematics? Too long? Too much? Too boring? Tell what is the worst and the best cinematic and why.
(5) - I don't have a cinematic I like much more than the other because they are all very good for whose I remember.

Question 8: Atmosphere - What do you think about the atmosphere of the campaign? Too funny? Too sad? Tell what increases and decreases the atmosphere? Why?
(5) - Again, it's a amazing job, Phodom's story is sad but they are Fradz and his girl to give some fun. Galeoth is boring and it's his job (not a critical, we need this). Pretty well balance, I though.

Question 9: Abilities/Spells - What do you think about characters' spells? Are they balanced? Does they have good enough effects?
(4) - I think there are some little things to balance but it's not really important. Just a few spell who is strong (the fire skill learned in ch.1) and other a little weak(element of Fire). For the rest, there are a lot of good new spell. Another good job.

Question 10: Items - Are the items interesting? Are they unique? Are there too much items? What should be changed?
(3) - Hard to say about item because sometime an item is good and other times it is weak.To accentuate the strategy side, it would have been nice to have more item choice. Like : Mmm! HP or Damage? Mana or regen PV?...


Wow!!! I've never written much in English.

1: Poor
2: Fair
3: Average
4: Good
5: Excellent

Question 1: Story - What do you think about the story? Is it too confusing? Too simple? What is the best and the worst part in the story. Why?

5 - Excellent Story
Simple to understand, the side quests are optional so it really does feel like adventuring rather than being forced down paths.

Question 2: Characters - What do you think about characters? Are they boring? Are they interesting? Who is your favorite character? What character you didn't liked. Why?

5 - Excellent Characters
Phodom isnt bad he has reasons why he does the things he does. Although think about him maybe getting into the heat of something and letting loose a little, he is a bit straight forward 1 objective than another.
Fradz Rocks!! Lots of personality, great job here.
Galeoth is so so, he doesnt quite feel as badass as he is supposed to be.

Question 3: Game play - What do you think about the game play. Is it boring? Is the campaign too repetitive? Is there too much killing? What is the best side of game play and what is the worst. Why?

5 - Excellent Gameplay

There is a good balance of stuff to do, only bad thing is how much you have to move run around. A little tricky to solve though and you have done some to help it along like the teleporters in chapter 2. Other than that you do kill a lot of monsters but thats the way it should be.. you are dragonslayers after all.

The best side of Gameplay for me is unquestionably the items and crafting Cant say enough good things, wish there were more games around with as many hidden and craftable items.

Worst gameplay is the stupid racing minigame!

P.S. Fix the vitality its so broken... You can eat food in your boxes And on level 6 when I drank a sludge it when to negative value and looped around to somewhere upwards of 500000!

Question 4: Bosses - What do you think about the bosses at the campaign? Too hard? Too easy? Please tell me what is your favorite boss and what is the worst boss? Why?

5 - Amazing Bosses All Are Very Unique

Some of the epic and elite bosses can be really tough But they are supposed to be that way. Favorite Boss is Haa I'm The Biggest Haha Loser In All The World!!! Very funny scene. On a side note the dragon boss in chapter 6 was hard core But just right, you have enough CCs and stuff that if you do it right you can down it in a few tries, that being said I would maybe use that bosses mechanics and stats as the epic boss for that level rather than the story boss.

Question 5: Music/sound - What do you think about the musics at the campaign? Are they bad? Are they good? What is the best and the worst music at the campaign?

3 - Average Music

I am a bit more picky about music so an off option wouldn't hurt. Also its a bit odd on ocasions when you get to a boss fight and there is some peaceful music on, I think that happened to me once in chapter 2. But all and all its not too bad.

Question 6: Difficulty - What is your opinion about the difficulty. Is it too hard? Too easy? Which parts of the campaigns were not balanced, what are they, and why?

5 - Excellent Difficulty

Of course you need to do a few side things here and there to stay in shape to win but it should be that way :) I think it was good. Of course there are always tweaks needed here and there though. Finding the faires in chapter 4 was a bit hard trying to figure out what you missed, maybe think about making it a little easier or just in the forest area.

Question 7: Cinematics - What do you think about the cinematics? Too long? Too much? Too boring? Tell what is the worst and the best cinematic and why.

5 - Excellent Cinematics

A bit long at times but Well worth it for the good moments when funny stuff happens. Note: Chapter 1 Epic Boss Cinematic bugs if you skip it and camera moves around durring boss fight making it nigh impossible to dodge waves and stuff.

Question 8: Atmosphere - What do you think about the atmosphere of the campaign? Too funny? Too sad? Tell what increases and decreases the atmosphere? Why?

4 - Good Atmosphere

Love the atmosphere around Fradz, but Phodom brings it down a bit maybe make him more Vengeful rather than melancholy.

Question 9: Abilities/Spells - What do you think about characters' spells? Are they balanced? Does they have good enough effects?

4 - Good Abilites

No they arent all balanced, lol But thats hard to do at least a bit. Fradz stuff is right on maybe a little too strong but Fun! Galeoth does a bit of dmg but needs his frostbolt to autocast when controlling 2 other heroes making him cast is too much of a chore.

Question 10: Items - Are the items interesting? Are they unique? Are there too much items? What should be changed?

6 - UNBELIEVABLY GOOD!!

WWWOOOWWW!!!, WWWOOOWWW!!! Spectacular job so many items and cool bits of lorish stuff thrown in, the excaliber is an excellent example of that. I like how much stuff can be collected and gotten, but I admit without looking in the editor you will be hard pressed to complete many items. I might consider having a way for players to buy back like up to 5 items they sold over the game for vendor value as often you sell something not knowing you will need it later and are a little sad not to be able to complete your ultimate sword or whatever it is your making.



All things consided, how would you describe your playing experience at the campaign?

I played it through more than once and liked it enough to add content and stuff, after playing yours I tried a few others and in comparison they all sucked!!

P.S. Love the idea of the arenas add more, also I dont remember if you did this or not but if you die in the arena consider resing the player. Add some ultimate reward for completing all of them.

P.P.S. I may contact you with more ideas and feedback soon.

Edit: I played Version 3.3a

Game version: BETA 1.4c

1) Story - The story is pretty good, a good story is one which manages to draw out strong feelings in the readers, I suppose there will be two endings at the end, one where Phodom kills the master of the black hooded man, and another where he forgives him, and then there's also the backstory of the dragons creating the human race, which is really neat
RATING : 5

2) Characters: I thoroughly enjoyed the individual stories of all the three characters, the quest dialogs were real funny in chapter 5, my favorite character is Fradz, because of his dangerous style of fighting and his low hp, also because he is able to steal items, my least favorite is Galeoth, perhaps I chose the wrong skills, but I had to keep hitting and running when encountering even the weakest of enemies.
RATING : 4.5

3) Gameplay: The gameplay was awesome, it's on par with many PC RPGs today, probably even better, the few things that bugs me was the 5 minute loading time every time I loaded a game, and the food system, it was more of an annoyance than a difficulty adjuster, but I see the use of it in boss fights, so it's okay. Then there's the hard to press hotkeys for my spells in the spell books, maybe you could add in the hotkey in the spell tooltips? Like RRQ for Holy Sign for Phodom. Hunting for items and bosses was addicting as well. Another thing, I was annoyed by the cave with the mutants in chapter 4, I went to the end only to find it with a barrier, maybe block the entrance of the cave until the living tree is defeated? There are a few bugs too, but they are not game breaking, so it's still very much playable. The honor point/boss point system is very well thought out, but there could be more stuff that we can use with them, say locked doors with a needed boss/honor point requirement to pass. The scoreboard is informative, telling me how much damage my spell would do. Overall I just wish that some stuff were easier to find.
RATING : 4.5

4) Bosses: The scripted bosses were really fun, at the chapter 5 epic boss I was pressing buttons like a madman, using potions and spells, my favorite boss is John, because of the point above, and my least favorite is Talloon, because of his living tree, which has an irritating long stun which just wastes time, I played on normal difficulty, and the bosses were pretty much manageable, they dropped awesome items as well, which was even more incentive for me to hunt out every epic/elite boss. Just that I couldn't find some mini-bosses in chapter 5.
RATING : 5

5) Music: Can't say much about the music, didn't start it with music on my playthrough, maybe I'll play again with music

6) Difficulty: Fradz with Disarm level 10 and Blind level 10 combined with Adrenaline Rush and blade dance can bring a boss down to half hp if it doesn't use a spell, but overall the difficulty curve was good, boss fights were challenging. Just that finding some stuff was really hard, like the faeries in chapter 4, doom lord in chapter 5, and trying to get the last piece of the omega orb, I truly liked the puzzles, maybe you could add more, like a sudoku puzzle, or a chess game.
RATING : 4

7) Cinematics: The text speed is pretty slow, but I know that's a warcraft limitation, best cinematics were the ones with the dragons for the obvious reason, as well as Phodom's entire family getting murdered, there weren't any bad cinematics, and the option to skip dialogs is nifty. I didn't take much notice of the cinematics, but they were well executed, from the jokes to the story development. Fradz was a rolling ball of laughter, laughed when he named the boss in chapter 2
RATING : 5

8) Atmosphere: The terrain matches with the game's atmosphere very well in the different chapters, it's neither too funny nor too sad, but just right, but there's something I don't get, why didn't Phodom tell Fradz that someone had killed his entire family, but only told him that he killed his chickens?
RATING : 5

9) Spells: There was a problem with some spells, like lightning spire giving a fatal error, but the individual spell effects were useful. As this is my first playthrough, I feel the ice/fire/lightning mastery spells were imbalanced, because giving one point into them was equivalent to giving one point each to all the other skills. I feel Galeoth's starting passive skill could be changed. The espers and the bosses spells were just amazing
RATING : 3

10) Items: I play this game solely because of the items, the complexity and the bosses, as I do a hard quest/kill a boss I wonder what item it would drop. I reloaded my game on the chapter one epic boss just to see what items I would get if I killed the archmage rather than sparing him, the set items have some bugs, like holy seal not providing bonus magic damage %. There are a few items which are a mystery, like the circle of fire, and the azure visage, I have totally no clue what those items does.
Overall the items were well thought out and all the set items do different things, which is really great, I could have a item build for killing mobs and another one for killing bosses
RATING : 4.5

Finally, this is the best warcraft 3 campaign I've ever played, I remember playing chapter 1 and 2 a long time ago, vaguely. It's too bad not many people are into warcraft 3 campaigns. This is the first campaign I wanted to finish just to see the development of the story and because of the GREAT bosses. I recommended this campaign to my friends halfway in chapter 1, sadly none of them plays campaigns. I read how Aeroblyctos made this campaign from nothing and it was really inspirational

Final rating: 6/5

Hey, thanks for the reply it was enterteining to read such a great message. I written down some things that I'll improve.

It was something new for me that someone thinks the story is just about killing Xada and his master. I can say that that is actually the first part of the story and the second part starts after that.

Because he didn't want to accept that his family was murdered at that point. He couldn't tell that to anyone yet before he accepts it by himself, which he'll eventually do. There are some parts in the story already that is not yet told, but everything will be told in a way or another. Also I haven't done/remade interludes yet.
