Well, that's definitely a unique design. Looks like a Hellfire Peninsula/Zangarmarsh hybrid to me. I like the general concept. The Wildlife doesnt quite seem to be from outland, but I guess there are no such creeps in the edtor anyway. So You probably...

- The terrain is well made yet you need to smoothen some area. I think those ashenvale trees don't fit the atmosphere of the place. You may want to replace it with something fitting to the area.
- You have a balanced resources I guess.
- Please, do not put two start locations in a very close places. Separate them. Even though you said this is 2v2 but this is not always the case. Maps like this can be played 1v1v1v1.
-You might use custom weather and custom terrain fog
- At this rate, this could be in AWAITING UPDATE


EDIT:
Updated already with cool updates.
you are very fast in updating your maps.
Sorry, if I am harsh on my review.
Now you got this map APPOVED
CONGRATULATIONS

1) Thanks.

2) Fair, I am not that good with the terraining and I tend to make mistakes.

3-4) I changed the ashenvale trees with felwood ones, that was a clever hint.


5) Thanks, Thats the most important thing in melee. Unbalanced maps will never be used in tournaments.

6) I wanted to do a map tribute to Synergy
Wich is a map adopted by Blizzard to be used in Ladder. I am following that ladder map layout.
the map is only ment for 2v2 not FFA or 1v1 , if you check ladder maps, you will find that there are many maps only ment for team play and full house ,thats why I didnt put creeps in main goldmines.
To much mines with orange creep favours human expansion, so a 4 FFA may wont be a good idea for 1v1, humans may multiple expand. NEVsHU may be imposible for NE in a 4 player map in 1v1.


7) Custom Weathers tend to be annoying and distracting. Anything distracting should be avoided, I like low raining, snow wont fit, didnt test the others stuff.

8) I used custom fog, I always use it. Dark teal this case.

- Good that you used custom fog.
- Yes, you are on your own right about 2v2 maps, but how about if others would like to use this map for FFA, that would be depriving them of using this beautiful map of yours.
- I am just giving my view on how I see this map. Take it or leave it.
- Review doesn't always look at the good side but also to some other aspects that might be improved.

I have no issue about maps being specifically made for only one game mode (1v1, 2v2 etc). In fact I think that this opens up a hole new world of possibilities. If every teamplay map also had to be balanced for FFA/1v1, it would heavily restrict those maps.

From a gameplay perspective, the creeps look unusual but still good. I wonder, why do you never include the tome of knowledge among the lvl 2 powerup. Do you think that one point of stats makes such a big difference?

Anyway, the map is good, therefore approved.

1-seems you are rigth, I dont know, since I set manually the L2 tomes, 3 is more fast than 4. nothing against the knoledge tome, maybe I am just paranoid with balance.
