1.Background Story
Serving for the devil lords' evil conspires, the Dark Chasers have entered the Ruined City where hides an unknown mystery from the pasttime. The Ancestors, on the other hand, believed that its their duty to hinder any evil plans by the Dark Chasers. Thus, they established their basecamp at this ruined city and ready for a war with the evil forces. In this ancient war you fight as one of the forces, either defending the city or to destroy it.


2.Gameplay
Suggested number of players:
5v5
-Five players per team along with an insane computer.
-One hero per player in a game.
-The forces of elders are either located on the left or right, each player has the choice to pick a hero and buy items. The main goal is to aid a melee Insane-degree computer to destroy the enemy town hall.
Simple Hint:
The players are dominant at early game and late game, where in middle game it's easier to aid the computer rather than fight alone.


3.AI/Bots
-The melee computer are insane computers, they are fragile in early stage and have very weak heroes but they recruit fast. The worker-type units are invulnerble, but would die out once town-hall no longer exists. All buildings have much higher hit points.
Hero-based AI is now available and they are able to buy items, cast spells, attack, fall back etc.


4.Special Features
-This map ISN'T an AoS or hero Arena map. It has a melee computers for each force who recruits troops and heroes. This therefore provide a new experience with new strategies than other HERO-TYPE maps!:grin:
-AI is available!
-48 heroes in total including 24 custom heroes and 24 blizzard heroes.
99 custom spells which can mostly be combined as a synergy.
-8 shops in total, 48 basic items, 31 recipe items
-Special hostile structures and bosses gives extra bounties
-Gives hints in game
-Can buy recipe when full inventory
-Hero becomes hero soul on death waiting for revival
-Attribute Points System
-Unique game ending

    Reject.
    Both triggering and terrain are bad.

    Approved. The terrain is good enough now and there are no gameplay problems.
    However I really suggest you find a better image for the loading screen and preview image.

    I've tested it and here are my comments:

    Review


    Pros


    • Custom Loading Screen, Icons, Models, Items, Effect.
    • Attribute System


    Cons
    • Typos (:()
    • Text color (Loading Screen)
    • Hero descriptions (Plain and boring, at least put some decent story)
    • Plain hero abilities (Nothing new? No Customs?)
    • Workers build very slowly (I had to wait for 15 minutes :|)
    • Neutral Creeps are too powerful (Level 11? LOL)
    • Item descriptions (Messy)
    • Terrain (A lot better but lacks something :O)




    I find myself very happy at what you achieved. But please do look at the errors I pointed out, fixing them could make your map a lot better.

    Any comments on my review are welcome. Good luck and keep mapping! :)

    Thank you very much and I appreciated your review. I will update the map when I have time.
    BTW, can you replace the old review with this review.

    And I thought the item description was ok, but since you point it out, how can I improve it?
    I'm now translating this map into Chinese and here is my new loading. How does it look like :)

  11. I am unsure what actually is going on in the map, but I can see you put lot of effort in it. Especially in the description parts, which sadly relates to myself and how I do the same and have the same effect on people. Still, nothing shabby, will d/l and try. Looks fun.
