You need to remove the Altered Melee tag for your maps if they're just melee. A couple of custom doodads don't really change anything but the melee status in the editor. I see you're excessively using some blood and dead body doodads in your maps...

Thanks ! but this is just a simple melee nothing special. I have altered melee coming soon. But, i do enjoy youtube tutorials about world edit, its much easier then too look at abunch of writing.

Hey, man! Just some reviews:

Firstly about terrain as always:
  • The mixing of the tiles is very nice. I always loved the tiles of Barrens for mixing. You're an icon artist and you can mix the tiles like mixing the colors at drawing. I know that well! Your mixing has given the map a beautiful view.
  • Placing trees is good, but doodad variation is bad. You could put many doodads and structures for the map as it is empty. Some more rock constructions, some archways, some caves, some gates, some tree make ups, some unit structures to form of doodads, some Orc towers and their ruins, some magic places, some nice fogs, some more rivers and their bridges, some river waterfalls, some river shores, some ups and downs, etc. You can have many ideas (Like those bloods of humans, I like them).
  • I think the height variation is nice, but you could make the variations more different and better (Not an important issue).
  • Did you calculated the shadows? If not, then do it. I think it is needed. Many authors don't pay attention to this subject (Or perhaps my informations are wrong).
  • I'm glad you put grass under tress. That's however a great attention to details and overall map. Some authors just have an overall eye, some of them have a little more detail eye, some of them have a great detail eye. It depends!
  • I think it's a (maybe) bit big map for just two players. Just my thought!
Secondly about overall map:
  • I like the creeps. They are nice and balanced!
  • I'm not sure about gold mines. Maybe more gold mines. Dunno!
  • Nothing more!

Overall it's a nice map. I'll rate it 4/5 and +3 rep for the effort. Nice work! :)

Just believe yourself to create great maps (Well, that's my slogan in each review of me)!

Maybe a better name would be Badlands... like the World of Warcraft zone. Unless there's already a map with that name.
I like the map layout except:
-the centaurs near the middle are exposed, this is no good.
-The four-corners layout for maps is dreadfully overused and the walk distance to the expansion is long. (think Harrow)
Good work
