    Well, I'm bored and was gonna try my luck actually finishing a map after such a long time away from the World Editor. But, Wc3 has been out so long and well almost everything has been done. So, What I'm askin is... What kind of maps do you guys like the most?

    Well, I like many map types... My fav are TD, AoS (Like Aeon of Six Gods), and survivals (Tree Tag).

    But I like every map which is really good.

    I don't like when map is not clear, is bugged and not pleasant ;)

    EDIT: Oh, and you know when I really get pissed? When I see in trigger editor only "HeroSelect Player1 Copy" "HeroSelect Player1 Copy Copy"... GOD! And when i see in initialization tigg comment "Default melee initialization for al players"... WTF melee! Not melee but custom!!!

    Well, ok. I'm a perfectionist so none of the partial pieces of maps spread out all over my computer are messy... unfinished... but, clean. ^_^
    I was thinkin some along the lines of a Hero Arena.
    I was gonna revamp one of my old favorites, Angel Arena.

    What ever you decide to do, just put effort into it. Examine the map made by those around you and try to exceed their quality. Mappers with determination are mappers that lead to success.

    Agreed with VGsatomi. Make a very good map. Only dotas and other stupid games are hosted at Battle.Net . I think I will leave Northrend and play on Azeroth or Kalimdor.

    Alright, Thanks, you guys. Wish me luck... to at least finish the map, of course. :p
    Oh, and I have enough knowledge. I'm sweet with the world editor. I'm just impatient.

    Patience is a virtue. My best known map took 3 days to make, and after that more then 8 months to perfect.
