    Looks playable.
    There's some visual stuff you can improve on, i doodled over the image in paint.
    When it comes to gameplay i'd remove the alleyway to the creep camp.
    Because if you get creepjacked you need to have a TP or it's game over.
    Maybe add some rolling hills or even cliffs for the sake of height variation.
    Overall i feel it could use a more visually distinct shape as a whole, right now it's a squared island which makes it look artificial.

    if you are asking others opinions about yours maps, Is hard to tell, both are good.
    I can think 3 reasons why I like Shallow Grave more, but If you want to know those reasons, I better write by vm, I dont desire risk being offtopic here or put very subjetive statements that may biass other participants.

    More WIP's. Is 4 Doom Guards too much to guard a Fountain of Health or Fountain of Mana?

    I think in general fountain of mana is a big no for melee, regardless of the creeps.

    Yeah, I arrived at the same conclusion. I might end of with a Fountain of Health.

    Health fountains work well in current ladder pool maps. Mana fountains I don't remember when they last made an appearance however.

    Fountains dumb down the game.
    When you retreat from a fight it should cost gold to restore your health and mana.
    Imo they have no place in 1v1.

    Generally agreed. However if placed properly it can work, there just needs be a lot of risk involved in going there and can't just be conveniently along your path as you retreat.

    Fountains can be okay, just need to be placed carefully in order to be utilized in a balanced way.

    They aren't even balanced.
    The regen rate needs to be changed to hybrid flat/percent.
    It can be allieviated by putting them on the sides, but then they're not getting used so what's the point.
