Call of Blizzard

Submitted by Jaakko
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
Winner of Cinematic Contest #1.

Playtime is about 20 minutes. Don't judge the map by its cover in other words minimap. I used a lot of doodads that are completely invisible in it.

This is my very first WC3 map submission so I'm excited. The map has been in progress since cinematic competition started over one month ago. The time limit for the competition was 20 minutes so I had to left out some scenes that I wish will make it to my map update whenever I would do that. But for know I want to give this map a rest and see what you think of it.

Enjoy and give feedback. This cinematic should blow your socks away. ^^

If you rate this map I demand you to give your comments too.

    @Jaako: Even if he did that, I think you should just respect his comment. Even whether or not it is spam or trash or totally untrue.

    Very nice cinematic. I see you took some time to make this. Good job. Some of the voices, could be better though. All voices, except the goblin's; needs to be louder. And the goblin's needs to be more gobliny. It sounded like a girl witch doctor. xD

    Good job! Expect to see more comments on the results.

    I respect his opinion but I think he crossed then line when he said "I don't recomend this cinematic to anyone".

    Oh thanks Wolverabid. :) That's one of the best reviews I have ever gotten.

    Hey, you did great on this cinematic must've taken a while for something that long, just wanted to say good job 10/10. There is only one thing i thought would make the ending better, it is to show the explosion but its nothing anyway awesome show.

    Well I didn't work 24/7 but it took weeks to make it and I had summer holidays. Somedays almost all I did was making the cinematic. I didn't count time but it took me really much effort to do this. When I make the final version of this the cinematic will be even longer and have new material in the ending. But I can't promise when I could do this or can I but I hope I will find the time again to finish it. Of course I like making these cinematics but the truth is my time is limited and I have much else going on in life. But one day I will return to finish this, even if it would take years but I will finish it.

    Thank you. Making the update can take some time since I'm lazy and unmotivated. But when I do make an update I'll mark it in my forum signature so people can see it. As of now I don't see myself making the update in the near future but someday.
