    Give a proper description about your map, right now the description was far too lacking to be acceptable.

    The description is unorganize and still at the same phase, the item drop was too inbalance as creep level 2 could have chances to drop level 8 item, green dragon roost could drop item? (What's the point of setting it to drop item?) and the destructible/doodad type usage could be far better.

    Fix the item drop and description. Once you did this, the map should be 3/5 (Useful).

    2/5 (Lacking) at this moment.

    Barathrum's Review (Mini Moderator)

    + The map has a name, author, has a description, is in the right category
    + Terrain is ok
    + The map also has enough gold mines (all players can build a second base)
    + Includes neutral buildings.
    + The drops are ok.
    - There is VERY low space to build bases

    The map is good, the only problem is as i said already that there is low space to build a base. That would make a reason that you can't even play the map normaly (i tested it and when i was building my base i ran out of space, and a thunder lizard attacked me, so this is a big -

    Rui's review for ipwnnn00bs4life's melee map, "Grove of the Ancients"

    Very bad melee map.

    First, the creeps attack the players when they're building, and I'll mention right away that the drops are bad, as well as the camps themselves (creep choice). Building room is not equal for everyone.
    Neutral buildings. A hired Thunder Lizard will be trapped at the Mercenary Camp. You placed a Goblin Merchant on top and a Mercenary Camp on the bottom and this is not always fair because the teams will not always occupy just the left spots or just the right ones.

    1/5 (Unacceptable) and a vote for [highlight]Rejection[/highlight].
