    Really disappointing map! From the screenshots I expected a great map but it was deluding. Here is my review:-

    - No Melee AI for computers
    - Many heroes are still the old ones with a different model. Example, all Nerubian heroes, Shadow Hunter, Pit Lord...
    - The Chaos Orc race was very disappointing! Two clones of the "Blademaster", both have the same 4 abilities. The only difference is that one has the model of Grom Possessed, the other has the model of the Blademaster of Blackrock Clan
    - Some icons didn't really fit the buildings. Example:- Altar of the Spider, Assailant Spire...
    - Many abilities, units and researches are too obviously copy-pasted. Example, Broom Missile, Bladestorm, Frost Comet, Frost Death, ALL units of the Chaos Orc race, Freezing Breath (do I need to continue?)
    - Why can I buy an Orb of Frost from the Voodoo Lounge without having a tier 3 building?
    - An ability is called "Breath of Fire" while its missile is breath of frost
    - The description in the loading screen is still the old one, nothing new
    - A lot of little mistakes like New Graveyard called "Graveyardnew", Arachnathid called "Arachnidtid" (the model is called like that but it's spelt incorrectly), Skullborb which doesn't even exist and many others...


    Better to stop here, there are many other issues I'd want to talk about but I'll go to the suggestions

    SUGGESTIONS:-
    - Really, you MUST URGENTLY work on the Chaos Orc race, it's completely copy-pasted and having TWO BLADEMASTERS in one Altar is the worst idea I saw in my life. Change units HP, attack damage, armor and cooldown
    - All normal heroes should be turned into custom ones
    - The description in the loading screen should be changed
    - Icons MUST fit the model or at least have a slight similarity like the "Barracks" icon could fit the "Chaos Barracks" model
    - Don't make anything seem blatantly copy-pasted
    - Correct all little mistakes


    Evidently, this map is too simple and doesn't have enough innovative things to be approved. Meh, 1.5/5 and vote for REJECTION!

    Presentation


    The map presentation has the necessary parts, however, it lacks designing.
    You can improve the description using BB Codes, it allows you to make the description more interesting.


    Score: 40/100

    Design


    Typos :
    Ancien Mine (Ancient Mine)
    Alcient Altar (Ancient Altar)
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    Many Tooltip Errors
    Names of most units are pretty similar
    Research are too similar to original
    Each race should have 4 heroes instead of 3
    Races are too similar in original, the most difference one can see is their models and icons.
    Most spells are original use custom ones will be great.
    Don't use active icons on passive skills!

    Object Data


    I recommend shrinking down the imports, some can be reduced by 1-20 KB without loosing much quality of the import itself.
    Pretty much most doesn't seems to have any great issue, but the filesize is pretty much annoying and some stuff below :
    [1] Units mostly have default stats and skills, that's boring
    [2] Vaults have default items which some aren't corresponding to it's current state
    These imports must be shrinked down a little due to their size :
    [1] ArcaneSpire.mdx
    [2] FelOrcEnforcer.mdx
    [3] QueldoreiStatue.blp


    Score: 45/100

    Gameplay


    Gameplay is pretty boring, it doesn't really bring great atmosphere to the map, in addition to lacking AI, I don't really recommend the map in any way due to its similarity to original maps.
