    Revolution Of Ancients 1.4b By BUP

    Hiveworkshop description
    • Map Info is OK but you should look at other AoS maps and how they descriped the gameplay
    • you have a lot of this ugly ""Gameplay ScreenShots"" things. Look how the bb-code works and improve it.
    • Why do you upload screenshots from screenshots? :D
    • use gimp or photoshop to convert the .tga into .jpg or .png

    • the file name is way too long. Most people can not see the map in Warcraft because of that. Re-name it to something like "RoA 1.4b.w3x"
    • it's scourge not scourage

    • the changes are hard to read, because of the white color and the background picture.
    • add a box behind the the text so that one can read it properly.
    • Why did you wright bisnar13 in the loadingscreen description?

    • the hero pick system you made is ok but laborious
    • I played "fire mage and frost mage"
      nice idea, splitting a hero into two parts but it is a very bad execution. It is very unfair and in fast
      battles switching heroes is somthing only hardcore gamers can do succesfully.
    • The tooltips are very messed up. They have Often different styles, no proper
      information about damage or other data and sometimes they are missing.
    • I think the spell phoenix spiral causes the camera sometimes to pan to position of the map or it is caused by a different trigger for whatever reason.... akward
    • Many spells had no coodown and no mana costs
    • the clock you implemented is very disturbing because it causes the notification of low costs, medium costs and high costs.
    • The terrain is simple and flat
    • you forgot to import disable buttons for the imported buttons or you did not use the right path.
    • you have to add some spaces in you ingame text messages because they look like this atm: "player 1destroyed a tower"

    All in all you have realy a lot to change. Playing this map feels like the author tested all kinds of different ressources but did not balance it to each other. At this state, playing this map is not recommended.

    Don't see this review as an insult but friendly advice.
    Good luck with improving your map :)
