    This looks promising o.o

    Edit: Wierd, I keep getting this Error message after every game.
    Like, there's 10 rounds, and after the ninth round it suddenly crashes my Warcraft.
    It could be my Warcraft's problem tho, who knows?

    I've never had that before, but I'll take a look and try similar settings.

    Your thoughts on the map?

    EDIT: I still haven't been able to reproduce your error, so I'm pretty sure it's your PC.

    i got the fatal error at round 2 with runners with 6+ AI
    my char was already dead so i don't know what caused this, i wasn't looking


    Could you add some infos about the spells plz ? "loading" what is this ?? it regens mana ??
    the smoke bomb ?? what does it do ?? (had no time to test)

    Otherwise I recommend this map, it's very interesting, original and funny. You won't be bored by the gameplay

    I feel the tooltips are informative enough, but I'll see if I can extend them a bit.

    Smoke Bomb makes units in the target area invisible, Loading increases the number of rockets fired.

    I still haven't been able to replicate that fatal error, could you please tell me exactly what happened before hand? Which heroes were in use, etc?

    i can' say i'm sorry and i had no replay for once.
    i wasnt paying attention coz my hero was dead.

    But i played two more games online and no bug at all. (But you can pass through the bibliothecary)

    For the tooltips, i saw no tooltips about Loading for example, so "I feel the tooltips are informative enough" = lol i don't have time to count every rockets ingame so i'd think it's useless. Maybe you wrote tooltips but i didn't see them the first time.

    I swear there wasn't any tooltips the first time i played, and the second and 3rd they were there (since i didn't notice any problem)

    there was only the name of the spell "Loading"
    dunno why

    i'm not a liar !!! :p

    Really nice and very replayable map, even in single player. ^^
    Although, how about instead of giving players minimum time to choose their heroes, you give them maximum time instead? Like, the game starts when everyone is ready. I was too slow reading what everything does and the tank runner was automatically picked for me. :p

    Asides from that, map is excellent. Shows that there's no need for a map to be complex to be fun :grin: Definitely rating 5/5.

    P.S., you might wanna add [/list] at the end of your testers list in the description here. :p

    Thanks for the feedback!

    Still can't find that fatal, though :/

    I'll work through the triggers again and make sure there's no possibilities of fatals.

    So i've tried many party options and it appears than when i choose ten rounds and only when the round is finished, i've got the fatal error.

    I hope that little complement will help you to make your map better!

    Thanks for the feedback guys.

    I've attempted several things that might fix the fatal, but since I can't reproduce the fatal myself, I'll need someone to report back if they're still getting it.
