    Linaze: Rather bad terrain that needs some better tile variation, height variation and more environmental doodads. There were too few creep camps, just two green ones and a red one that was guarding a Goblin Merchant. There were too little forest, giving Night Elf players an unfair advantage. There was also only one gold mine per player, which gives the players no option to expand and if they run out of gold and their first gold mine is empty, their dead, basically. Finally, the presentation could've been better, some background story, screenshots etc.

    1) Description - Description was lacking and need improvement. It did not even mention the background story of the melee map.

    2) Terrain - The terrain are rather lacking. I notice most of the destructible/doodad was focus on the side of the hill or road. You should have add some type of destructible/doodad around the field as well. The tiles variation could use a better pattern as well.

    3) Creep - Bad creep placement. Apart from gold mine with starting location of 1 versus 1 melee map, a tavern is also included into the list of unguarded. You place a huge amount of brute forces guarding the tavern, what's the point? If you view any blizzard map, you would notice none of the tavern was protected.

    4) Resources Distribution - Even though this is a face pace game, the amount of lumber was extremely low and gives disadvantage to most races except night elves.

    You need to fix a lot of stuff as it was now where near approval stage. Even if it was approve, it would likely to earn 2/5 (Lacking).

    My rating is 2/5 (Lacking), but my vote was disapproval.

    I'm not really sure, if the description is lacking... it's unacceptable
