It's Chapter Eight from Warcraft III Reign of Chaos Human Campaign, but played as a Melee Map. Cool!

Why does the map have the "custom" status on it? Try to check the status in the editor, on the bottom right side of your screen where it says Melee Map: No.



Hover your mouse over it and check what requirements is it specifying in order to be considered a melee map, and try to change them if possible until it's considered a Melee Map (you'll notice it in-game when the map icon is replaced with this
instead of this


Melee maps having custom status are pretty useless as "melee maps" sadly due to the fact that game doesn't update the unit stats updates game has had throughout many patches after 1.07, so you'll see things like Tomb of Relic having Clarity Potion, Mountain Giants costing 500 gold, probably archers won't have Elune's grace and have 310 health, Spell Breakers will have Heavy Armor and lots of other things the game patched long ago, but are not updated when map is considered custom.

These will help make a better description:


Screenshots could attract more players to download your work. Make the best of them.

A credits list is required where the names of the resource (models, skins, icons, spells, sound etc.) authors are mentioned along with the specific resource. It would be a luxury to have links leading to the used resources. Credits in the Quest Log would be appreciated.

Not entirely sure what to do here.
I'd like a second opinion: @Paillan & @A Void, if you please.

For now I think that we can say that screenshots are still... I don't know... empty? it feels like the show so little of the map. Maybe it's just me? anyway, as always (sorry man), calling @MysteryMaze too our cause.

Screenshots do not cleary show what the real map looks like. I suggest the author upload maps on a basic camera angle. I think the terrain does not guarantee equal play as everything seems asymmetric.
