Blackrock Mountain
Created by Maxwell

In this map you will have to take the side
of one of the Lords of the Blackrock
Mountains - Ragnaros, owner of Molten Core
or Nefarian, owner of Blackrock Spire.

Clean mountain from monsters, collect items
and capture the Altar to make your Master
more powerful and destroy enemy servants.



RAGNAROS
NEFARIAN

[​IMG]


"THIS WORLD AND ALL THAT YOU HOLD DEAR
EXIST ONLY TO BURN!"



Ragnaros, the Firelord, was an incredibly
powerful Elemental Lord and master of all
fire elementals. Ragnaros was summoned
by the Dark Iron Dwarves, who were eventually
enslaved by the Firelord. He ruled for more
than three hundred years over his minions
from deep inside the fiery core of Blackrock
Mountain.


[​IMG]


"YOU CAN CALL ME "BLACKWING" BECAUSE
I AM A BLACK DRAGON... AND I HAVE A WINGS"



Nefarian, or Lord of Blackrock. When he’s not
smashing intruders with his sorcerous might, he
enjoys long walks through his domain, the sound
of victims sniveling in fear, and quality time on his
throne. His family tree includes some of the most
hideously evil dragons Azeroth has ever known,
including his sister Onyxia and their father,
Deathwing.



POWER
RAIN OF FIRE
ELEMENTALS
[​IMG]



On a map placed 3 Altars. Each altar increases
the rate of accumulation of the Power for your
Master and gives visibility in a small area.




[​IMG]


Initially, each Master accumulates 1 Power
every 2 seconds. When Master accumulates
100 Power, he unleashes Fire Storm on a
random enemy building, causing damage in the
area of effect.



[​IMG]

Every 3 minutes on the side of those who have
more Altars, in the world will come Elementals:
Two Magma Rager - ranged being, with a small
amount of health, dealing damage to all enemies
around the target of attack.
And one Magma Giant - a creature with a large
amount of health and armor, scorching all enemies
around.

    I played both this and your previous map, Naxxramas. I think the concept of this map is a good one that defenitly can become something really awesome. However, I think both maps need more work in order to recieve a higher rating. For now, it is approvable, but if you put down more work in each map, they could deserve at least a 4/5 rating. There are a few new ideas brought to the "altered melee table" with this map such as the random events, and capturing of outposts. Those things are good, and offer a more complex playstyle. However, I must say that I liked your other map more since in it you had a common enemy and teamworked to bring him down. i think that was a better concept for an altered melee rather than a singleplayer / 1v1 map. That is a personal opinion however.

    The layout of the map offers some strategic options, and is well executed overall. The different locations is close to symmetrical wich does not create any unfair advantages. The extra features usch as the rain of fire and minion spawning, does not create a huge advantage either. They are pretty balanced.



    [​IMG] Aesthetics
    Nothing too special going on in the terrain. The terrain is pretty much built with standard warcraft 3 doodads with a decent placement. I do not understand why the pool of lava / water in the middle of the map is covered with athing blockers, leaving this area kind of blank and uniteresting. Perhaps it is meant to be a crater, but even so, it does contribute to a nice terrain or a better map feeling.
    The multiboard in game is clear and informative, which is nice.
    Tile variation is very nicely executed.
    I like the wandering dragon whelp critters.
    I like how your "master" speaks to you occasionally.
    I do not understand why you have chosen to have blue undergorund mushroom trees in a such a otherwise hot environment, it does not look good.

    As for the description: Awesome job!
    It is epic, yet not confusing and kept short. I also like the short story summaries of Ragnaros and Nefarian.


    [​IMG] Bugs
    I did not encounter any bugs.


    [​IMG] Summary
    An altered melee with a decent warcraftish look. The map offers some new features that is balanced and works for a melee game. I have a hard time coming up with suggestions that would make this map better than it is, save for a little bit more advanced terrain.

    Approved with a rating of 3/5.

    I had the idea to add a neutral non-standard heroes in the game, but at the moment in the game you can not find these models. They are not used. That's why I did not give credits.

    Your naga imported only in WorldEdit. For a future.
    Is this a problem? I must delete it?
