from the Titans desk
A while back, we shared a post regarding the announcement of BigWorld-Powered Realm of the Titans‘ “Titan’s Eye” map. Here, I’m going to talk about the features of this unique map a little more in detail.
The first aspect that breaks it from the generic DotA map mold is that there are only two lanes. With it being a 5v5 map, having only two lanes will breed a lot more chaos than from a traditional three lane map.
By having a more limited number of lanes, there will be a higher opportunity for battles, and in-turn, more opportunity for death. Aeria knows this, so they are giving the map an alternate win condition. While you can still push to the enemies’ base and destroy their “tower” to win, on this map getting to 66 kills will also give your team the winner’s spot.
Another one of the most important aspects of this map is the new Rune Altar system implemented in it. Throughout the map you will come across “Rune Altar” structures, and by clicking on them they will yield you one of many enhancements. Each enhancement has a specific color, with the list detailed below.
- Orange – increases magic damage
- Purple – 500 experience
- Blue – double physical damage
- Red – haste
- Green – mana/health regeneration increase
- Yellow – 350 gold
This is a fresh take on the commonly-trite DotA formula, and we’re glad to be behind it.
