Map Info


A 6 players 2v2 map, Ashenvale + Cityscape tilesets.
One player per team will spawn in the middle position (red or purple), and the idea is to have a somewhat different gameplay depending on wether the other two players spawn on the same or opposite side of the map.
The mines in the middle can serve this purpose, becoming more viable as expansions if the opponents spawned cross map.
Creeps are quite tough, especially in the middle. The presence of fountains of mana makes healing really cheap with some heroes, so there're some runes of healing (125) around.
Fountains, two shops, and two marketplaces so close to each other in the middle are bound to make the map quite snowbally I fear.

I'll admit the map was rushed to release, both in that regard (meh creep routes / item for level balance) and ambience/decoration wise (boring doodads all over).

May I suggest playing on this map without ingame music? makes everything so relaxing.
