    Comment: Items:

    There are no custom items in the game, yet the powerful items which are dropped b the "badass" units are really helpful. Some custom items would make it better.

    Heroes:

    There are several heroes to choose from and even new ones with updates. They have custom abilities, but some of them are the same melee ones but with a few changes. Yet you didn't make the spells imba, which actually is a lot of fun.

    Gameplay:

    The Gameplay is the most important part in any map and this map just earns the title "A fun map", the custom events, the heroes, the item drops, the trebuchets, the enemy boss attacks just make the map a lot of fun. And it is really addictive. There is a replay-value because when you finish the map, then you will get a secret code which will unlock a new hero which is a lot of fun to play with. I don't have any negative points here.

    Environment:

    I don't think you used any custom doodads, yet the castle looks very nice even without those and the battlefield is just gigantic.
    The terrain isn't flat, the castle is well filled up but not too much and there's a lot of variety in the castle as well.

    Bugs:

    There are several bugs which i think are hard to fix, for example sometimes units get stuck on the wall and some units are just standing there. But there are no major bugs and almost no fatal errors except one random fatal error sometimes occuring in the end.

    Overall:

    This is actually the best castle defense map and probably one of the best maps i have played, and with the second review my rating will be changed to 4/5. You can clearly see that Tranquil has put a lot of effort into this.

    Suggestions/bugs:
    1.You can't use stone skin on yourself.
    2.Change the enemy's team color, you can't see them so well in the minimap.
    3.The trebuchet deals damage to allied units too.
    4.Make more interesting triggered spells.
    5.Add custom items.
    6.Add commands, that let you open the gates.
    7.Earthquake deals damage to allied units too.
    8.Battering Rams die too fast.
    Good luck:D, i had fun playing the map

    1. we had a server split while the endboss spawned.
    2. the orcs didnt try to attack the king after everything was down. they just gathered at the player teleporters.
    3. i had the druid and he is ok for supporting but his attack spells are just crap and do nearly zero damage


    thats what i found so far

    lol i like this

    EDIT: Some times the heroes can get stuck between the walls, when they are on the ladder and the ladder breaks they tend to get stuck

    Also it'd be nice if you raise the level cap to around 30?

    EDIT2: I found there was some spelling mistakes, when you spelt champion you spelt it like this "chanpion"

    Nice map this version is better with the half map as a fortress and the other for the attackers, the first one was a bit of annoying to run to the upper left corner to pick an item.Also for some strange reasons (u may wanted it this way) u can't see what ur allied heroes are carrying in their inventory.
