Map Info


A 1v1 map, with Lordaeron Winter + Icecrown tilesets.

I guess I tried putting too many things not on the edges of the map, so it turns out the map is lacking any real great open area, I'll just call this a feature.

I really wanted to have merc camps, but the winter ones are way too imba, so had to settle for the classic Lordaeron Summer one - green trolls - ..feature.

The green camps around the middle area are way too good, easy to creep with decent drops, and you can go anywhere on the map from there - realized this quite late, another feature.

Shops are quite out of the way, was just experimenting with this kind of design - this one is an actually intended feature.
They have no cc in that camp also, since that position can be somewhat of a death trap if creepjacked.

Hopefully it works allright, was kinda rushed so I'll fix any aggro problems and such in the future.
Doodads are very repetitive, will stay this way.
Some camps are really annoying, a quick warning.

    A good map, yet I have mixed feelings about it which are hard to put into define.
    The visual design is unique and nice, and in the overview in the editor the map seems to have a nice structure with the bright-blueish shallow water in the middle and the teal northern/southern parts.
    Yet ingame I found it very hard to tell where I am without looking at the minimap. When playing, the map does indeed also feel like it is missing some more open areas. The height difference seem to strengthen this feeling. The color patterns are also rather "strong" and while I like the idea and at first glance it looks very nice, I'm not really convinced it will work out in the long run. Sorry. There's a lot of attention to detail, but does not really stand out, though maybe this is intentional.

    Regarding gameplay, the map is actually rather standard with barely any unusual creeps and balanced itemdrops. I would have put some powerups to most of the orange camps.

    I'm not sure how to improve the map. Map approved.
