    The requirement of having all players ready and showing this by having them click a dialog isn't a good idea, in my opinion. This is because players who are afk will just end up stalling the game, and having to remake is an inconvenience.

    Well what's the point of playing with afkers then?

    In the next version the game will begin automatically after 60 seconds regardless of players being not ready.

    E: It's out.

    Here's a little update. I've not been too active updating this map lately due to lack of time with WC3 and a lack of interest with this map.

    I'm also making a new map which should be ready for release some time during the next month.

    Oh yeah updates! Too bad there in no new weapon.

    Hey, you think you can add a few more weapons and armor before you leave this project?

    Well the main reason for this update was to make the UI fully custom and to improve the CTF AI behavior.

    I want to keep the starting selection nice and simple so no more items/weapons will be added there unless I remake some of them of course.

    I actually have ideas for adding new weapons and stuff but they're not something you select at the start of the round. I will reveal more details about this later if it makes to the map.

    Oh I see, well it will be more fun actually if we can get more weapons but the amount of current combinations are already great.

    I'll be looking forward on your future updates/ideas etc.

    How about a new game mode?

    Like : Heaven's Judgement

    Each player will have a partner, if the players are odd, instantly add AI. The duo will have to face a eternal beams of light streaming from the sky and will try to dodge them, because they will deal great DPS if they got hit. While doing this, they must slaughter enemies to gain ' Favor '. Favor can do boosts for the pair, like a bigger life cap , faster movespeed, faster cooldowns or use ' Divine Skills '. Each Divine Skill will drain the ' Favor ' needed. First to get X favor wins.

    Or a challenge feature: Gladiator Arena

    It will entrap the challenger and challenged, forcing them into a smaller arena, making this a 1v1 showown. The players ( the challenged & others ) must vote ' Yes ' to do this. This command can only be entered before the 60 second timer ( the one that activates after a round ) expires.

    -Da Fist-

    P.S. Reputation + 1 and a 5/5 map rating :D

    The first one sounds very interesting, don't like the second suggestion though.

    You should increase items selection time a little! Because when played for the first time it the picking time was too fast, couldn't read every item.

    BTW AWESOME MAP, this one is must play map 2012! :D +REP 5/5

    Ok, I had to scrap the new weapons and some other stuff because they were increasing the map size by about 1MB and that was unacceptable for a multiplayer map like this.

    Also this may be the last update of the year for this map. I'm maybe going to update it next year if I get some inspiration to do it but now I'll continue to work on my new project.

    Damn dude, we have 8 mb to spend, they shouldn't be wasted, because somebody said that big file size for MP is unacceptable... 0 logic.

    Yea well my next map is going to be bigger (both in terms of file size and terrain area) and it's a multiplayer map.
