Ancient Warfield
[​IMG]
Map Description:
Fourth map in the Ancient Ruins Saga. Again a map for two players, however the map is quite large and there is many expansion gold mines and the lay out gives many strategies to face your opponent. Can be played fast or in long time period. Have fun.

      Gameplay

      [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

      "Ancient Warfield" is a melee map only suitable for a 1 one 1 match and in the atmosphere of the sunken ruins theme.

      "changes done no more 'stand forever' nagas blocking some part of the map which is good, also the facing value of each creep camp is fixed."

      Terrain

      [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

      "Terrain fixed as well, giving more atmosphere to the whole map with fogs and excellent work of environment decors."

      Management

      [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

      "To my conclusion, this map is useful for a quick 1v1 match with a beautiful view of the map."

    I have played the map and I must say this is what Melee should be, one with a great and attractive terrain and also has the needed resources! Let me give my review on this:

    Ancient Warfield Review
    [+] Good Points:
    -Great and attractive terrain. Has proper doodads and destructible in it!
    -Has the needs in a melee map such as enough resources: gold mines and fountain.
    -An open and wide area perfect for huge battles like this.

    [-] Bad Points:
    -None

    []Suggestions:
    -Maybe add some neutral shops.


    Overall, a great melee map and the first map that I review without a single bad points! Automatically this gets a 5/5 (with a chance of DC 6/5). Have a +3 REP for the effort and voting for Approval!

    This just need a more sexier review, that's why.

    Well since you bugged me to check this, i'ma write down my own thoughts about the map.

    First of all, the terrain is just sex, you heard me? Sex. At last, someone took the time too make marvelous terrain using the default doodads on its max potential, sadly though that your technique here became repetitive but still the terrain is just gorgeous. Symmetrically, as you expect from 'Ruined Wall' cliff of sunken ruins, is balance. I also loved the fact that you located two expansion mine per player making the gameplay more competitive(speaking of competitive, hell yeah for early tavern!).

    Overall the map have a well detailed terrain, a good number of creep camps with fine drops my only suggestion is for you to change the mercenary camp to goblin shop or the goblin shop to mercenary camp.

    Oh, since you took the time to make a well detailed terrain, you might want to design the ocean too since it really kills the heavily detailed island.

    I'm biased so 5/5.

    Thats really good, keep up the updates. Maybe some suggestions, if you have the space (what I meant filesize space), maybe you can create some custom doodads and destructibles and put it in the map. Terrain will surely be better!

    +3 REP again for the new updates!

    Oh but I think it will make your terrain greater and also more realistic. But I do respect your opinion but how about make this simple melee to Alter, add some maybe custom items and maybe item recipes?

    You don't need custom models to create great terrain, it already is realistic and very beautiful, so I don't think he needs to use custom models

    Anyway great map, the terrain really stands out compared to most melees

    5/5

    5/5 like everyone said Nice Job. I like the rough feel of the land. Its not as plastic looking as Blizzard maps.
