    ********the purpose of thread is to help find cool maps that where forgotten.I realize the website has a "sorting" feature*****
    ********I will count the votes one week from this day,thank you for reading*******
    After playing "The devil made me do it" map that's at least 6-7 years old I got the idea for this thread.A lot of great maps are buried and forgotten and the community is getting smaller each day.
    So here's what I propose,let's make this thread the hall of fame of W3 maps.If you help out this list will come in handy for beginners and more serious players alike.

    Rulles:
    1)rate maps from 5 to 1 in the specific category.5 being best 1 being worst(but still worth playing).You need at least one entry
    2)In case you have more maps,make more lists
    3)If you really like the map,you can write a short summary about it and I will include it here.
    4)Once a week I will count all the votes
    5)If you don't remember the name,try to describe it here,maybe someone will know it.



    (I will edit the lists based on the votes,so the most popular genres will be on top)
    Categories:Single player
    *Traditional(like the W3 campaigns)
    *RPG/dungeon crawler
    *misc

    Multiplayer
    *traditional
    *traditional custom races
    *RPG
    *Dungeon crawler
    *Tower defense
    *defense/survival
    *AOS(like dota)
    *Risk
    *Spawn based strategy / Conquest Strategy

    ***this is still under construction***

    Most use the term 'melee' or 'ladder' maps instead of traditional. Sorry, I didn't rate worst maps, these are my top 3 favorites in each category, favorite game modes the top 4, the rest are random.

    3) Forgot the name, similar to Legion TD but you fight each other, someone please tell me the map, it is here on hive. I believe it is FFA

    AoS
