    Neat melee map, nothing new though, but still looks visually really well.
    But please change the creep camps in front of the expansion goldmines in front of the starting points to yellow ones, don't make it that easy.

    Remove the unbuildable rock tiles at blue's starting point.
    Also add some safe passages to allow for early harrasment.
    Add more trees closer to the starting points. (Maybe replace the rocks behind the goldmine)
    Add an item drop to every creep camp. (Even the sea turtles)
    Having red creeps guard the only expansion right in front of your base is rather extreme, replace the ships with a small area containing some red creeps and put yellow creeps in front of the bonus goldmines.

    Review:
    + Enough creep camps thought maybe too much...
    + Neutral Passive buildings
    + Enough gold mines


    - No tavern
    - Where the hell you forgot item drops?!?!?!
    - Too much green creep camps
    - There could be a little more wood
    - Some times the road blocks building very annoyingly

    Suggestions:
    - Add item drops
    - Change creep camp guarding merchant with orange one
    - Add tavern maybe to top, bottom and left and right corner to the sea or someting
    - Add more wood
    - Change maps name to "Bounding Seas" and change the file name to "(4)BoundingSeas

    Updating this when I am done editing the whole terrain. I have observed also that the terrain is not balanced and not symmetrical.

    MAP REVIEW

    GOOD:
    • A very neat terrain, with enough space to build, also offers lots of strategy.
    • Balance item drops
    • Enough resources

    BAD:
    • Nothing really serious, but you might want to add more shrubs/flowers or anything on the ground, it looks empty so far.


    RATING: 3/5

    Map terrain is really clean and deserve a higher rating, but the map design is very basic.

    SUGGESTIONS:
    • Add some shrubs to fill the emptiness

    I think the map size is a little too big for 2 players.

    -too many mines for a two player map. The one near the players is basically free. I suggest reducing the gold amount of those
