Updated Vampirism Zero VZP version to 3.7
- Four new heroes (All int based = Gnome Technician, Storm Shaman, Firelord and a Witch)
- Improved Pikeman's Vortex Shield
- Possibility for Vampires to chose skills

As in every Vampirism map you control either a builder and protect yourself by building a base or a Vampire with your goal to kill anything that is alive. This is an ultimate Vampirism turning simple building and item buying into a constant constant battlefiend providing lot more than just buying items and watching things happening around.

What's different here to other Vampirism Zero maps:

-Rebalanced terrain, single attack spots are provided only at solo spots, two people spots or at weak three people spots.
-Only one lumber base with fair prices which provides balance by not having far too much wood.
-All tomes were moved to ultimate shop which disallows humans just to pump one hero in the beginning of the game (in other versions this is the easiest way of winning for humans, as with massive amount of wood hero is lot stronger than strongest defence).
-Added lots of items with various abilities to provide countless tactics for both humans and vampires.
-Opened gold arena during day and night for both humans and vampires.
-Provide soloing players with solo bonus of +40% damage.
-Gold Income Upgrade availible for Vampires.
-More than one hero class
-Vampires can choose their abilities
-Vampires are provided with ultimate spells as soon as they reach 41 lvl.
-Vampires are provided with Vampire Reincarnation with 300 seconds cooldown.
-Voting system (-votefeed and -votekick)
-Proper trading system (-gg -gl)
-New, very useful party playing with -as command autosending all resources to target player
-Vampire minion has been replaced with Vanquished Builder
-Vanquished Builder is being reshuffled between players once his owner leaves the game

Differences between other Vampirism maps:

-Lumber bases (no lumberjacks) which are clearly indicating for how many players base is made for (many other vampirisms can be misused by players when they build in far too many people in one place).
-Humans main resource is lumber but to tech up they need gold. Gold can be only gained by destroying gold supplier. This requires having heroes, and those if killed are providing killing vampire with +1 wood, which for vampires is necessary to buy better items, this is one of the main aspects of the Vampirism Zero, as Vampire here isn't completely connected to feed, because as much as Humans need gold, Vampires needs gold and wood.
-Killed humans doesn't become a Vampire minion, in here he becomes a Vanquished Builder who is a neutral unit and can help both humans and Vampires by using his special abilities.
-Allowed resource trading - Trade is a key to victory!
-Having a hero is a must, as having a gold from gold deposit is a must.
-Constant gold and experience growth for Vampire, thanks to this game will never stuck, unless Vampire made too many mistakes.
