    Dragonflight Wars is a simple AoS map that revolves around the sacred Glaive of the Aspects in the world of Drakonia.
    The game is set in a battle between two opposing factions, the Saura and the Draga. The Saura are a group of heroes who fight for the glaive to bring peace in Drakonia and the Draga want to overthrow the Dragonflights and rule over Drakonia themselves.
    Story

    In the beginning, there were 6 powerful beings known as the Dragon Aspects. They were powerful gods and they created the world of Drakonia.
    Neltharion created the earth, oceans and mountains,
    Ysera filled the world with trees and lesser beings,
    Alexstrasza gave life to the lesser beings,
    Malygos gave a portion of his wisdom to the lesser beings,
    Nozdormu created time itself &
    Mithras created death.

    And thus the world of Drakonia was created.
    To stop each other from getting more powerful than each other, the Aspects limited each of their powers and created two powerful artifacts which contain the essence of the Aspects power, the Glaive of the Aspects and the Dragon Soul. The Glaive had immeasureable power and the Dragon Soul granted immortality and wisdom.

    But soon, each of the Aspects wanted to be more powerful than the rest so they started a war among themselves. This led to the shattering of Drakonia. The war ended soon afterwards and each of the Aspects fled to their own realms as their powers began to fade quickly.

    After the war, the world of Drakonia was in ruins. Civilization was extinct and death swept throughout the lands. There were few survivors who declared war against the Aspects. But due to conflicting objectives, they were divided into two factions, the Saura and the Draga. The Aspects could easily destroy the races but Nozdormu stopped the war in order to continue the existence of life on Drakonia. In this war, the Aspects lost almost all their powers and were imprisoned in their mortal embodiments. This drastic loss in their powers caused the Dragon Soul to shatter into 6 shards and the Glaive of the Aspects to break into the Gem of the Aspects and the Dragon Hilt.

    The lesser races took advantage of this and trapped the Aspects in the Dragon Grounds, an ancient battlefield. The two races fought valiantly to destroy the other in a series of unending wars.
    These wars were called...

    The Dragonflight Wars



    And so, the story begins, of how it passed in time...

    Every 10 minutes there will be a duel, each side will vote for 1 player to fight the opposition...
    The winner will have to fight 5 dragons; Alexstrasza, Malygos, Ysera, Nozdormu and Naltharion.. If the player is able to kill them all, then each of his team members will get a Dragon Shard..
    After 10 minutes a hammer will appear, it will forge the shards together, and that team will win :D
    If the other team cannot forge the Dragon Gem in 10 minutes, the shards will dissapear
    The other team must try and destroy the shards or collect them.
    The shards drop on death...
    Shards are divided among team members. There are 10 shards :D

    I've been thinking, most dueling in maps are unbalanced and can easily turn a map from good to bad. If one team has a unbeatable hero and they keep using him for the duels then its basicly game-set-match. To overcome this it gonna take alot of balancing and implementing ways for the underdogs to get back in the game...

    So I wouldn't say i Disaprove of the dueling, but it gonna take some time to properly balance it .

    EDIT

    Oh yea and consider this. The map could be a basic AOE with lanes and towers. The 5 dragons could be in seperate dungeons, portals on the main map lead to the dungeons. The whole team may enter the dungeon to slay the dragon, upon dying the dragon drops the shard. Each hero may only carry one shard at a time. When all 5 dragons are slayed a timer starts to count down from 10minutes. When the timer expires a hammer spawns on the map. The team has to get the hammer and take it back to their base and forge the artifact.

    At any moment the opposing team can steal the shard from a player by killing him at early game or even steal the hammer at late game.

    I hopw we'll see proto-drakes since they where the first existing dragons and they are in a bigger or smaller way related to the five flights. And the Netherwings should have their place in this map since they hate their father for abandoning them to shater and become the twisted dragons they are today.
