Custom Skill Footmen 1.17 is a footmen wars type of map where you're able to customize your hero's abilities.

First and foremost the white loading screen was terrible on my eyes, a black one would have fit much better. The extremely high height elevation looked terrible; use the smooth tool over those areas. Other than that, the terrain was fine. The mini-map is quite important in this genre of map, so I recommend removing the image. A couple of icons lacked the DISBTN versions, so they appeared green when I clicked on the menu.

The map was fun, with several different races and loads of different abilities. The fact that abilities could be applied to any base hero, balance became a problem. Some heroes were underpowered, such as Jaina who had terrible stat growth. I can see a Blademaster or Demon Hunter posing quite a problem with their ridiculously low attack cooldown. Another complaint was that the game wasn't playable on Single Player. I'm not talking about the inclusion of AI, but it wasn't necessary to end the game just because there were no other human players. I always end up playing on Battle.net anyways, but it made the cosmetic part of my review frustrating.

Rating: 2.0 and recommended for approval

My recommendations:
Replace the white loading screen with a black one (use the .mdx file with no texture).
Give the icons proper DISBTN versions.
Smoothen the terrain (using the largest brush size).
Remove the mini-map image.
Balance the base heroes.

PROS:

  • Many Skill-Combos are possible due Skill system.
  • Nice Balanceing tough.
  • Terriain is also well done ( its footy yay )^^
  • Small Map Size
  • No laggs ( Maybe if Fullhouse and you got an Win98 :p )

CONS:
  • Many skills are from standart Wc3
  • I would like different Skill Icons and Hero Models ( but thats make the map bigger... so its not rly wrong.


Honestly this map makes more fun than other footys, thats becouse you can choose youere skills and so its more fun

Also the Mapmacker is rly nice and keeps the Map updated.

This is my re-review of Custom Skill Footmen 1.20

The loading screen is no longer white, and much more pleasing to look at. The 'press any key to continue' has been modified into 'Click Here'. I'm not sure why that's been done, as you don't actually do any clicking. The terrain saw a huge improvement, with a good amount of use of the smooth tool. I was still unable to play this on single player. It's a minor thing, but it's easier to check out the units and abilities prior to playing the game competitively.

The mini-map image was removed, so I had a greater map awareness, which is quite important in a footman wars map. The heroes went through a decent amount of balance, which was one of my major complaints.

The map has went through an extensive improvement. For that reason, I've changed my rating to 3.2

Hmm i just played. Its pretty fun but a lot of the nukes are way too powerful. I would get two hitted by storm bolt and chain lightning which doesn't seem very balanced.

Sorry for inaccurate comment, this map is very good. I thing it is better then previous footmans, but I(and some others) think some skills(like lighting) are unbalanced.

Thx both for your comment.
@Dual-Cross
Do you got any idea how to ballance it?

@Miros
You say chain lightning are unbalanced, do you mean too good or bad?

You could increase all the heroes magic resistance so they take less damage from these spells. This way the spells are still effective on the creeps.

tried to host it 2 times, both times lot's of people just droped and i got an exception error, killing warcraft 3...

Well, it doesn't happen in other maps, so the error most likely isn't on my side... i think it happened when i tried to upgrade my creeps to the orc windriders, not absolutely sure though.

in addidion: some skills seem kinda broken, chaos orb for example. When the skill text says "when attacking air units the attacks become ranged" one could imply that it works on melee heroes, too... it doesn't :p
Did you change anything about the Drunken Brawler? Could be my imagination, but that one seems to have some problems, too. In addition to not working at all for ranged heroes, at least not for mine :D You should add infos, for what heroes the skills work, like "Melee only" or "Ranged only"

When you look at the tooltip to "Upgrade to Orc" it lists Wind Riders as costing 1250, but in reality it costs 1750 to upgrade, which is more than I've seen for anything else. Also, when I finally got enough gold and upgraded to Wind Riders, the game crashed for everyone in-game.

Hello Tobbzn, thx for you comment.
I´ve fix the problem as soon as possible. (maybe the problem will be gone anyways, because i thinking about remove all air because of it is to easy to hero aim)

Well thank you a lot, i will give you +1 rep for your time and your friendlynes.

Edit: Tested the whole map for more bugs like that, but no one found (bug fixed).
