The Arena
A colossal temple stands in the jungle; eight heroes face off amongst the mighty remnants of a civilisation more ancient than the world itself.

First released in 2007, RDZArena is a multiplayer arena based on When the Freedom Slips Away and in which much of the technology of This Wreckage was developed and refined. Despite being an 8-player map, the game includes bot AI that takes over all empty or computer-assigned slots for an optimal singleplayer experience.

Gather points for yourself and your team by killing enemy heroes and creeps, capturing flags, holding the Hill and more — the first team to reach the target wins (the target is adjusted for the number of human players).

RDZArena includes a crazy chat system, and there are a number of secret commands that you can use to spice up your game. These can be entered by any player, but don’t be a hater and abuse them if it ruins everybody else’s fun! Naturally, these are to be used at your own risk.

  • -nowin: disables the score limit so you can play forever!
  • -gameover: immediately triggers the game end — whichever team has the most points, wins
  • -whoops: causes your hero to commit suicide
  • -bottage: gives AI control to your hero so you can sit back and relax
  • -xantomere: swaps your hero for Xan from Unreal Tournament!
  • -chaos: immediately forces a Chaos Round (I don’t know why either, presumably for testing)
  • -me starts a fire: starts raging infernos all across the Arena!

    1. It was reworked for 1.24 when that version fixed the “Return Bug” and introduced hashtables as a replacement, so that would be the version for which it was built… but I’m sure I’ve given it a spin in 1.26 before and had no trouble. Anything beyond that… might shit itself, might run perfectly, who knows?


And you tell me...
