Tile placement is really good. Terrain is minimalistic with very few doodads, but it doesn't look empty or boring. This one could have been made by blizzard. The creep camps are balanced. The items they drop are balanced aswell. No player has a...

    You are really good at using tiles! The doodads was a little less impressive, but the few doodads you placed didn't look bad in their positions.
    A melee map have no real reason to be protected. I suggest you upload an unprotected version. :)

    Thank you for your words! Like you mentioned, I am not very skilled at using doodads. I do use them, but not as effectively. All I do is placing some rocks and flowers haha. Maybe my tendency to finish maps as quickly as possible comes into play ;p
    As for protection, once before there was a guy who have modified my map without my permission. Plus I don't think there is any difference between melee and use maps in that they are both precious creations and properties.

    True, but stealing is rare, I'm sorry you had to experience that, and a protected map makes my job so much harder.
    It is of course allowed to protect your maps, but it will take longer before I get around to review it.

    Oh, I didn't know that. Sorry for that. Would it make it easier if I reveal the information about the item drops?
    I can attach creep info along with the items they drop.


    +I have placed additional doodads to make it look better. Check it out!

    It would be easiest if you could send me an unprotected version via PM. There are more things than item drops you need to check.
    I can't see any drastic changes in the terrain, but don't worry, its good enough. I think you could benefit from reading some terraining tutorial though. :)

    I'm sorry with that. Only I own the original version. I could do anything else to help your job easier other than that.
    Thanks for your suggestion on terraining tutorial :)

    Tile placement is really good. Terrain is minimalistic with very few doodads, but it doesn't look empty or boring. This one could have been made by blizzard.
    The creep camps are balanced.
    The items they drop are balanced aswell.
    No player has a positioning advantage.
    The gold expansions gold amount are ok. Perhaps a bit much for such a small map.
    Plenty of large open areas that allows for epic battle clashes.

    A wroking and good-looking melee map. Approved.

    Is this protected? LOL.
    I think melee maps shouldn't be protected, since they don't have a secret codes or something else (like custom spells, systems, custom units, hero etc.) rather than decorations inside the map.
    By the way, it's your choice and probably you have enough reason to protect the map to prevent it from editing or from being stolen.
    But this is my only suggestion.

    PS: Your map is good, I like melee map so much. I love when people still making melee maps even the popularity of these stuffs declined.

    Thank you for your reply and reputation! I'm so excited since you are the first person to give me a full reputation!
    Next time I upload, I will consider it unprotected.
