3ICE with ROC?

Unread post by Maxximus »

I'm just wondering, why are you always making maps that work in ROC?

Extra challenge, RoC players don't have many good maps, TFT is too crowded (with DotA).

And TFT players can play RoC-maps, so his maps would become better-known and more popular :)

Right. The only problem is that I usually host on RoC only, so TFT players never get a chance to see my maps. Not many people who can host and also have TFT will play on RoC. Ever. I might be the only one.

Yes... about DotA. I'd say a really bad map that is widely played around the world for an unknown reason.
Most probably the death to all other maps and map makers.

DotA is a very well made map. People don't play bad maps for no reason.

Well I still think DotA is the best map.
I don't play it, I don't like it, to be honest I even hate it, hate it very very much, but I am smarter than calling it bad based on my personal opinion.

Just because you don't understand or don't know how to play DotA, you should not mindlessly flame it. Why would 99% of the people play DotA if it was bad? Impossible! Conclusion: It is not bad, it is good. Respect your enemy, don't underestimate it.

DotA is your enemy because it pollutes the Custom Games list, covering your new map in 87648219374 layers of dota.

Here are some interesting statistics:
----- Map Name ---------- Times Hosted
DotA Allstars v6.59d ------- 978,763
DotA Allstars v6.60b ------- 589,990
DotA Allstars v6.60 -------- 374,385
Civilization Wars v2.18 ----- 83,151
BattleShips Pro v1.199 ------ 51,851
The Black Road 2.0 ---------- 40,395
Enfo's TS:MT Edition 1.89 --- 39,577
Castle Fight v1.13b --------- 31,643
Soldier Tower Defense v7.5 -- 30,649
Battle Tanks 8.60 ----------- 22,565
Island Defense v3.0.3f ------ 22,239
Twilight's Eve ORPG v1.12c -- 19,719
NOTD Aftermath 1.5d Beta 8 -- 19,705
Island Defense v3.0.2 ------- 18,407
FOOTMEN FRENZY v5.4 -AR ----- 17,519
FOOTMEN FRENZY v6.4b -------- 16,866
FOOTMEN FRENZY v5.4 -AR ----- 16,794
Naruto Wars Unlimited 1.1.1 - 16,135
Battleships Ghostbay 0.99h -- 15,465
Foot Man Frenzy CH3 --------- 13,833

Summary:
First is DotA, hosted 2 million times (978763+589990+374385=1,943,139)
Second is CivWars, hosted 83 thousand times (83,151)
Third is BattleShips, hosted 67 thousand times (51851+15465=67,316)
Fourth is Footmen Frenzy, hosted 65 thousand times (17519+16866+16794+13833=65,012)

So DotA is 2,337% more popular than the second most popular map. (1,943,139/83,151=23.3688)
Every map on the list without DotA, hosted 477 thousand times (83151+51851+ ... +15465+13833=476,513)
So DotA beats the sum of every other game by one and a half million. (1943139-476513=1,466,626)
Many people actually bought War3 just so they can play DotA on it.
I made this. Thanks to mapgnome for providing the numbers though. In case you hadn't noticed, I love maths. :)

How the hell would you know the statistics of how many times a game has been hosted.
You are special friends with Blizzard or something?
