    Symmetric, meets the basic melee requirements, the terrain looks pretty good, the environment is filled up and there's a great amount of tile variation.
    The only thing I'd have to say would be the weird rotation of all the building doodads, but I guess making them look realistic and face one way would make it look stupid.

    Here is a small review.

    I'm really impress about the map layout, really balance and it offers a lot of lane for strategic purposes. Terrain design is also impressive, it shows a very classic blizzard terrain using the blizzard cliffs, but the thing that really impress me the most is the great use of tiles, it don't know why, but it looks really fresh to my eyes. And the fact that we can see a few flowers here and there that gives a lot beauty to your terrain. Also the village is well made, one my argue about the random placement of the buildings but seriously it looks better like that since blizzard houses sucks too much. Players have enough resources to build, neutral creep drops seems to be fine, the only thing that I can argue about is the lack of space to build a base. You might want to tweak it a bit.

    Other than that it deserves a 5/5.

    Excellent melee map. Like sonofjay said, nice terrain/gameplay/realism etc.

    My Review:

    No bugs found. :thumbs_up:

    Suggestions:

    For the very first creeps next to the bases you have 3 bandits, no items drop. :nw: I'd suggest a level 1 tome to drop. No bigger then that.

    Where you have the dark wizard level 8 and two level 3 rouges with him, and 2 bandits I believe, you have two items drop. Leave the item that drops from the level 8 wizard and maybe change the other item to a level tome. Two items is kinda imbalanced for such a weak camp.

    Same situation as before just with the satyrs and timber wolves. Just change the tomes they drop to level 1's instead of level 2s, that way the item drops are more balanced.

    Now for the gold mines way down at the end of the map that only have 7500 gold. It just doesn't seem worth expanding down there because they are so far away, creeps are strong considering how much gold you only get, why expand there first when you have a 12500 gold mine to expand to that is half the distance from base. Maybe you can make the amount gold in that mine 15000, or make the gold mine closest to base to 7500 and make the creeps weaker. It's not really a big deal just it doesn't seem worth expanding there when its far away and hard to defend.

    Notes: Now I really like the idea of the gate ways, gives it a whole new tactical advantage(s) and stratgey(s) to the map. I would like to use this map in the melee tournament if the tournament happens. I would definitely want to use it if you did consider some of my suggestions.

    For now I rate this map 4/5 and +rep. Maybe if you do some modifiactions I'll increase my rating to a 5/5. :D

    Thank you for the review:
    1. The green camp with no item drops wasn't intenctional; I mean, in the editor I choosed lv1 Charged instead of Lv1 Activated, was a "missclick"
    2. I'll give the lv2 charged item to the lv8 creep, ad a lv 1 book tho the lv3 one; I'll also change the book level that the satyr drops to 1
    3. I've thought about that too, and yes, you are right. But, I gave more gold to the mine in the forest 'cause its harder to defend, as the other one has just two ways to be reached, and one of them is passing near the player's base. But, as I said, you're right, and I'll increase the gold from 7500 to 9500

    Thanks for considering my suggestions. Hopefully the melee tournament will happen and I want to see this map in the tournament! I think I didn't mention it in my review, but I can't rate your map yet due to THW requirements. Will rate it 5/5 when can.

    Edit: Redownloading the updated map, can't wait to play it!
