    Could you please tell what this map is about? Is it a DotA-like? Does it have AI? More details are needed.

    Heroes of the Domination
    [​IMG]
    Key Concept
    AoS - My favorite type of map. Lovely loading screen. I love what you implemented for the AoS genre in Warcraft 3. Is the first time that I see this type of gameplay. Somehow you managed to combine melee gameplay with AoS gameplay and gave birth to this. Really interesting and nice. Thumbs up for that! Some really required instructions should be posted in the Quests menu since it can become hard for newbies to understand it. I accidentally discovered that I have to attack an obelisk only once in order to capture it. Also, improve your description of the bundle! :pgrin:
    [​IMG]
    Gameplay
    I picked the Lich to test out the map. What I loved the most is that you can go whatever you want and a strong army is following you. Good thing that you made the Recall transport not only the hero but your army as well. The domination points feel like a new resources since it must be used to upgrade your troops. A bit sad that you did not put items in the game but I suppose you did not because the inventory slots are occupied the type of units you currently have as an army. :pcon:Friendly fire is active, you can attack an ally. You should remove this. The neutral creeps that guard the obelisk are not so powerful. I believe they should be more aggressive and more resistant. It feels too easy to take over an obelisk. I like the system of the obelisk after you dominate it, you can guard it up with stationary troops and a defensive tower.
    [​IMG]
    Terrain & Aesthetics
    The terrain is lovely. Really a good execution of the Sunken Ruins tilesets and doodads. You combined them nicely with doodads from other types of terrain. The layout of the map is nice. Thumbs up here! :plol::plol:
    [​IMG]
    Wizardry
    Mostly standard spells with some add-ons but the main gameplay is focused on the armies of each player.
    [​IMG]
    Final Suggestions
    :peek:Try putting a type of unit only in 1 inventory slot and show a number of how many you have, instead of occupying 3 slots for 3 units of the same type. This way you will be able to implement items. Create some custom spells, it won't affect the gameplay in a bad way, on the contrary, it will be better. Strengthen the guards of each obelisk. Add instructions in the Quest menu. Add a better detailed multiboard regarding number of kills, armies, type of units you currently possess.


    As for now, this one should go in approval with a rate of 4/5. :D

    I did what you asked. What else do I need to do to get the "Approved" status?

    You must credit custom material used (author names) in the map. That includes icons, models, sounds whatever is not from the original game. Write a list in the map thread description.

    Truly, a different, hybrid AoS. Too bad there are no items for the heroes at all.

    Not sure the game has to be separated into phases. I guess everyone should be free to either conquer obelisks or attack the enemy base.
    No information in the quest log. Some players might be confused.
    I guess you could add more abilities for units, not just critical strike and bash for all.

    How to control obelisks? OK, you have to right click on them and let the hero approach. It's not quite intuitive.
    The Obelisk is healed by priests before it changes owner.
    Not sure if it's balanced for Jaina or Sylvanas to get stronger than the other depending on who wins rounds. They should both scale since players from the losing side might not have any chance to come back.
    I think there should be more than 6 rounds (2 x 3). It looks like heroes barely reach level 6. The host should choose the number of rounds.
    You should try some custom spells. Recycling Warcraft III ones is unoriginal especially when changing their icons too. Spells | HIVE

    Awaiting Update.

    ADDITIONAL NECESSARY INFORMATION
    • A credits list in the map thread description is required where the names of the resource (models, skins, icons, spells, sound etc.) authors are mentioned along with the specific resource. It would be a luxury to have links leading to the used resources. Credits in the Quest Log would be appreciated too.
    • A detailed changelog in the first post would be helpful to reviewers and notify fans about the newest implementations to your map.
    • Map thread tags are important. Please use those that fit and not more or none.

    Thank you so much for the reviews, it's glad to see that someone actually downloaded and played this map.

    I want to say that I have been working on a new version for a long time, and it will be ready soon. Therefore, most of the problems will already be fixed in the new version, but still I would like to go through some points.

    In this map from imports by other authors is used only HD-screen, but the author asked not to refer his in credits. All other icons and pictures were manually converted from WOW or HOTS. The sounds are taken from the original Warcraft 3, there are no import models in this map.

    This is the key concept of the map. I deliberately refused items because I didn't want to make a stamped AOS. I understood that there will be indignation on this problem, but in each new version I try to offset somehow this lack. So in the new version will be implemented a different system of units and improvements that will have to somehow offset for the lack of items.

    The new version will be realized hint system and Quest Logs will be added.

    This is a very delicate matter. In early test versions there was no division between phases. All players could in one time join Attack Mode and Domination Mode by capture obelisks. But this approach was fated. If team commanded in Attack Mode, then they lost almost all their obelisks, so was not benefits to participate in Attack Mode. In end this was battle between Sylvanas and Jaina without participation players. In addition, the breaks between phases and the Attack Mode itself allow you to relax a little after the heavy mode of capturing the obelisk.

    Just in the new version will be available new abilities.

    This is not quite true, the obelisk after the capture heals your troops.

    The general meaning of the Domination Mode - the more and longer you captured the obelisks, the stronger your army and your leader will be in Attack Mode.

    Initially, the game was developed as a fast game, designed for 15-20 minutes. In any case, the maximum number of rounds for the moment is 5, because the game goes to three wins in rounds. Perhaps in the future this issue will be resolved somehow, but for now it will remain as it is. But in the new version, the experience will be gained faster, so by the end of round 5, I think level 10 will be reached.

    Another key concept is to be closer to the original Warcraft 3, so I try not to use imports like new abilities or models. I want to put together the good old solutions from Warcraft 3 and look at the game from a slightly different angle. In addition, I do not want to focus on new abilities, heroes and items. I wanted the players will better use of strategy and the combination of their mercenaries and upgrades. In the new version it will be more noticeable.

    Already solved in the current version.

    In the new version there will be a system of strengthening of neutral creeps with each round, plus on some obelisks they will be much stronger.

    Already solved in the current version.

    Sorry that I often refer to the new version. But I hope it will be ready soon. Thanks again for your feedback!

    Yeah. I wrote that before I realized that the AI bosses also appear and that the battle is in the middle from almost the start so players won't have time to play with obelisks.
    Well, the priest did something for 0.5s before the Obelisk changed player. I did not record the playthrough. Just make sure the obelisks are mechanical and that healing spells don't work on mechanical units.



    EDIT:
    Changes made,
    Approved.
