What is Advent of Zenith really?

This is where all random discussion about AotZ goes. If it doesn't feel like it fits anywhere else but is still related to the map, this is the place to post it.

Seems like you guys are all playing AotZ and DoE constantly on East. I try to host them, but nobody joins them on West. Is there any way I can change realms?

Constantly? No, most of us just have a large experience.

Hmmm. What about changing realms? West is pretty boring anyway.

Just beside Battle.net, there is a magnifying glass, click on it then choose East

Also every playable Hero is very unique to all the others. Its not like DotA were most heros could be played exactly the same with only one exeption that i've seen. and some with only one abillity that requires some trigerring. It also has alot less heros that alone makes the game feel more Epic. Also like what someone else said before me there backstorys are fleshed out and are interesting unlike A DotA hero's which is cobbled together with many holes. (Leoric uses A hammer? Funny all I see is Firebolt and 4 passives.) Also it's the only game that i've played where I have liked almot every hero I've played as exept Dahaka. Now as A final note the Items are not horrible imbalanced crap that you can get 5 minutes into the game. The good items in AotZ are VERY expensive and in most games I've played ive only seen 1 or 2 purchaced per game.

That's quite exaggerated, isn't it? In every normal AotZ match I get to buy at least two of the good items plus to hire a few heroes. If you kill many units and some towers, gold shouldn't be the problem.

Doesn't change the fact that the items in AotZ are expensive. Income doesn't flow as easily like DoE's split gold, I prioritize heroes then items.
Also it's the only game that i've played where I have liked almot every hero I've played as exept Dahaka
MADNESS. Dahaka is my favorite. Give him some lurv.

In the games i've played were either are way to focused on repairs and Hero's or the panda is seemingly invisible and we never find him also Loki I guess I may try Dahaka again if my computer is ever fixed.

Maybe if you're playing some lame 50 minutes games or something, you'd never get the money. Repairing doesn't happen if you're there to defend, which is typical. The panda only stops at 4 places, it's not hard to find him. Dahaka is fun, albeit uber rigged.

So far after my first few games, I've seen err.... always at least one guy errors out or quits in the first 5 minutes or even seconds. Only tried a few heroes so far though ^^

Oooh yeah, that's right. But I think he's got a weakness against heroes who take him on from afar. That's what I like in this map: every hero has somewhere a weak point.

Er, yes, I've found that when I play Scamp it can be quite fun, but if there's a Ronin he mindlessly hunts me all game >_>

That's generally what Ronin does, due to Scamp having a low hp.
