    Only thing i could see as an improvement point is:

    Really good map!

    You can open and close the multiboard a few seconds after game start to show the entire multiboard.

    For some reason the description never updates correctly and I am for some reason unable change it.

    Fixed descriptor for now.

    EDIT.

    Seems that the site auto deletes any description I enter.

    0.58

    Ok Ive fixed all player group related issues, all player should no longer have the mentioned issues.

    - Carrion Strike is now Carrion Storm and has been remade so the gargoyle does a carpet bomb along the ground.

    - Fixed the issue in which the trigger created more dummy crypts on startup that required.

    As a result the Victory trigger should now work properly at all times.

    - Fixed a massive oversight that has been ingame since like 0.4 series. (Grave Turret had a multishot but was never removed.)

    - Unliving Armour is now less badass and easier to kill, other defenders such as Embalming Slime are weaker.

    - Raise dead Once again summons 2 skeletons, allowing to build up armies faster.

    - All units have more movespeed, Crypts are also easier to destroy.

    - The following units now require Crypts to summon
    Guardian - 4
    Scarab - 3
    Berserker - 3
    Pit Mummy (Assassin) - 2
    Immortal - 3
    Khalazzi Boneworm - 12 (thats half the map)

    This map is fantastic, very original. Hero customized spells are very interesting, which makes the game play really fun. The terrain is spectacular, the "bony" atmosphere is just great.:psmile: And as far as I played, everything seems balanced and well made. I rate this a 5/5 :grin:

    bugged seals (ulti)...
    well i dunno if all but vengeance and fury seals are bugged... at least on lvl 2, dunno if also lvl 1
    The vengeance seal appears above skele head, and in status (ofc with 50% chance) but after like 5 seconds after skele was summoned it goes away (the status, but not the visual affect) also i never noticed dmg dealt. also lvl 2 only does 100 dmg, just like lvl 1? laaame
    fury seal on lvl 2 never appears, as if 0% chance.
    map is fine though... too bad leavers because they dont understand...

    Vengeance Seal does indeed do 100 damage at level 2. It does 50 damage at level 1 both in tooltip and effect. Ive double checked just to be sure.

    As for why the seal goes away after 5 seconds, do you have a replay so i can check it its working as intended? Dispel magic abilities can remove as the tooltip says.

    Lastly thanks for pointing out the Fury Seal bug, Ill have it fixed right away.

    Added a 0.61a version to address this.
