Battle for Stratholme!

This bundle is marked as substandard. It may contain bugs, not perform optimally or otherwise be in violation of the submission rules.
A very old map i stumbled apon, i was browsing through my maps and i found this old map my friend made a long time ago. I was bored shitless so i decided to try it, it was simple and i just played it for laughs, however i improved it a bit and well its better then most of the crap maps made. Anyway this map isnt anything serius and it will probbly suck but im sure some will like it.

if the defenders can hold out long enough the backuping army will arrive and orcs and undead wont stand a chance. Defend stratholme vs the orcs and the undeads. The undeads should help red take stratholme and take down the elven outpost. Teal should go defensive and try to use the towers to his advantage. Teal has some good heroes so if he uses them well he can survive for long but he should abandon the post if overruned. Purple is a small group of elves whos backing up stratholme, purple has low spawn but the spawns are somehwat tougher and the hero is best in game. Red is the major defender of stratholme and if he falls stratholme is most likely doomed.enjoy. If reds town hall falls the defenders loose, if blue looses his hero stratholme defenders win

Lol

    First of all the description at Hive could be better. There are no info about the map.
    The map is horribly imbalanced, you just placed normal units around the map in groups... The map isn`t playable, because it has no winning condition. The terrain in the most parts of the map is flat. It`s just simply unplayable. 1/5 and vote for rejection.

    there the map now HAS victory condition, so u cant blame that anymore

    and btw it requires full house for game experience, playing it on single might seem bad but if u would play it with fh ud see its alot diffrent

    But it`s still imbalanced. Why Arthas is outside at the beginning? And there are some other things...

    The idea of this map is good, but the map is not good. Too inbalanced, too many memory leaks, too many units and bad terrain. Plus its just a normal map with triggers, you didn't even changed the units hps, skills or damages. I know im not really good at mapping, that's why i know when maps sucks. You could have done better. :thumbs_down:

    the units stats are not changed cuz they are suposed to be real orcs of how wc3 made them. I just hosted this and no1 bitched like u 2. in fact they liked it. and im not experiacing memory leak, maybe ur not sending ur units to fight?

    ps. the map is not imbalanced, its cause u play for 1 minute in single player and judge it, i just played it with full house and we won with 39 seconds left, thats pretty balanced so dont tell me its imbalanced before even trying it

    No, I test every map with friends. This map I tested 1v1 and WE agreed, that this map is weak.

    No, my project is in work, but it`s not good enough yet to be put at Hive. I respect this site, so I`m not gonna spam it with "maps" (if I can call it a map) like this.

    BTW "map" like this I can do in 10 minutes...

    Please do not post maps for fun the next time.
    This is a respected site, where people can browse good maps (and good maps only).

    The hive is made because other sites' map standards are too low (e.g.: EpicWar).
    When people play maps, they want to play higher quality maps, here they can find it very quickly thanks to the the good search-function and the fact that there are only higher quality maps.

    -rep for that... please respect other users, even if they aren't experienced (and I'm not saying he isn't), everyone deserves a chance.

    Good for you, work on it for another month and you the quality is high enough to upload at the hive ;)
    (My point: it takes a while to create a good map, try to put more effort in it, if you made this for fun, keep it for yourself, or share it with friends through other methods).

    Suprprise, surprise.... he is an official map reviewer (social group: map reviewers) and believe me: he is absolutely right about everything he has said.
    I do not try to break you down, it's just that I would like other people to respect the rules and standards of this site.

    Well, I rejected the map - obviously.

    If you have anything to say, you are free to do so.

    This is the same what I have said on your page:

    So you do not see the difference between melee-maps and custom maps?
    Well, I'll explain it a bit:

    Melee-maps are standard warcraft-maps, the triggers/objects have not been changed, only the terrain has.
    The point of the game is to create an army, starting off with a mai building and 5 builders.

    You can team up with others, play FFA, play 1v1, or play versus an NPC.
    You are victorious when all enemy buildings have been destroyed.

    Now, does your map resemble this?

    Here is another difference:
    [​IMG] This is the sign that the map is a melee-map, with the standard trigger and standard objects
    [​IMG] This is the sign that the map is a custom map, with edited triggers and/or objects.


    -> Melee-maps are an exception and it isn't really easy to make melee-maps: you need to make sure the terrain is exceptionally good (your terrain, for example, woudln't be good enough), the game needs to be perfectly balanced (for symmetrical maps it's easy, otherwise it isn't) and the drop-rates and creeps need to be balanced as well.
    Make sure every player has the same drop-chances from his creeps (and his/her creeps must be the same as the other players).

    If its a fun map it should be allowed. This is prob why epicwar is more popular than hive -.-

    The quality of maps on EpicWar is extremely low.
    If you wish to upload your maps at EpicWar, I will not stop you.

    If you think this map is fun and meets the hive's minimem requirements, I can proove you wrong with that.
    Just tell me if I need to post a complete review, so you can see your mistakes.
