    Here is some feedback:
    The gameplay is so ssssslllllooooowwwww. Thats because you wait forever for the resource gathering,speed it up.

    Goblins are easily overpowering. Gnolls can win only via zerging. Nerubian bases are extremely vulnerable. Sadly Murlocs are only different color skins/tints of same models.

    The gold harvesting is meant to be slow, since expanding is fast and easy. I useally have problems spending all my resources. Try getting lots of expansions asap in the early game. I useally have about 10-15 workers on lumber. As for the balance, feel free to send me some replays, since it is most likely your strategy. Though i will admit goblins might need a slight nerf.
  7. Doomfan64


    Apr 7, 2012
    Horrible. Races are completely unbalanced, and why do you only gain like 3 food from one building? Also, goblins seem unfinished. Suicide units are not an acceptable replacement for melee units.
  8. Filmting


    Feb 20, 2013
    Would apreciate you be a little more nerutral if you gonna critque. Balace is always a concern, and with basically only me playing the map it is hard to get just right. But i disagree with completely unbalanced, all races are very close to equal from my experience, it is most likely your skills and strategy. The low food from buildings is meant so that you would build alot of them. Bigger base, more stuff for enemy to harrash or kill, can build walls, etc. If you do wanna try to help me with balance i would recommend you send me some replays to Dani@tjekmig.dk.
    Also have an idea of making a guide video to the map, explaining diffrent thoughts behind why i did what, and what you are meant to do.
    As for the Goblins, i tried to make every race diffrent, melee units diden't fit the Goblin race, thats why they don't have any. I've done alot of diffrent stuff to make it diffrent from normal WC3, such as no tiers on main building, all researchs in 1 place, 1 hero limit, all units low hp so faster combat and etc.
  9. Doomfan64


    Apr 7, 2012
    Okay, I will be a little more specific with my critique.
    First of all, you shouldn't be trying to make the fights go by faster. It just seems dumb to have both teams build up such large armies (Which seems to be what you're going for, since you said you want the bases to be bigger) only to have one player win the fight in like 30 seconds. And if you want the goblin race to be unique, I would recommend a better replacement than suicide units. Finally, I'm not sure exactly why the races don't have upgradable HQs. I will give you praise for adding (almost) functioning AI, though.

    I'll send you a few replays of this map, specifically of Goblin V.S the other races.

    P.S: I noticed that you were able to change the name of the races in the lobby to reflect what the creep-based replacement races were. But it still names them after the races they replace half the time. I don't know why but it seems like after you quit a game they start working.
  10. Filmting


    Feb 20, 2013
    Because you need to load the map to be able to see the names. Your replay files are from a diffrent version of warcraft, could can't see them with 1.26. Apreciate the critque you send in email as well as this.

    These are really cool, but the terrain could definitely stand to be better. Want me to start making melee terrains for your map?
  12. Doomfan64


    Apr 7, 2012
    Okay, I will remake them. Didn't know you couldn't view replays from previous versions, sorry about that.
  13. Filmting


    Feb 20, 2013
    Watched the replay Goblin vs Gnoll. First of all i would like to say, despite your claims the AI does infact not cheat beyond vision of the entire map, as a standard for all AIs. Easy AI, gains less resources, and Insane AI, gets unlimited resources. If you play with normal the AI does not cheat.

    Lets start with some strategy of your race to begin with.
    Goblins are weak. The race is focused on tatical gameplay, defense & harrashment. As goblins you should get up your defenses in the early-mid game, with Land Mines and or towers, meanwhile you harrash with zepplins or drillers filled with suicide squads. Workers are weak and die fast to this. When try to keep your defense off, meanwhile weaking your enemy, until you have a strong army composing mainly off, Clockwerks, Assult Robots and Walkers. There may be undiscorved strategys yet to be found, but this is what i try to do as goblins.

    Now lets get to the game. In the game i see you start off with sending all your 5 workers at gold mine, while waiting for new ones to be build. This is a bad idea, since lumber in the early game is a much needed resource for teching up as quickly as possible, and gold is not. There are so many small details in your build order that have slowed you down so much.
    Here i will give you the basics of a good starting build order. Please note this is just a rough and not precise build order.

    Also use rally points.
    5/8 Food - Build a Research Center near some trees, build a Food Factory, and an Altar, and start to build some Workers. You will have 2 workers in your gold mine, this is fine in the beginning. - A tip, use shift click and right click your gold mine with building workers. They will then return to gold mine when they are done building. All workers you build here will run to wood.
    10/12 Food - Build some more Food Factorys, and keep this up until you have a good amount of workers on wood. Somewhere around here also build a Training Ground.
    24/24 Food(Roughly) - Here you should have about 3 Troopers and a Hero. Go for the creep camp at the Gold Mine, next to your base. The one with the Murloc Entrance. After you cleared out the creeps, Expand. You can almost always afford to expand this early, since creeps on the map will be denying rush from your enemy until it's night.

    Now from here on, try to get into a mech army, some harrashment and defense. A fault i found in your play is you relied heavily on Troopers, with no upgrades even. Trooper is a basic early game unit, which can be useful mid to late game against mass weak units like, Spiderlings, Swarmers, Tamed Boars, Insects etc. if it have the aoe upgrade.

    I will just point out from my notes a few mistakes you made to finish this initial impression off with.

    1:30, you got your first Research Lab. This is way too late, and you need to be upgrading early. Also don't be afraid to get more of these to upgrade faster in the mid game.
    9:30, a bad fight for you. You army only composed of troopers, which as said, is a weak unit, effective against swarm units, but not the strong army of gnolls. You should generally go for a mech army as said before.
    15:00, his army was twice your size in food count, and your army again excisted of Troopers and Clockwerks. Clockwerks are weak on their own, as is meant as a support unit to go along with your mech army to repair them. Their the Goblins healing unit and is weak on its own, but strong with a mech army.
    17:00, you dont expand enough. At this point your enemy is getting his fourth, and you are still sitting on 2 bases, and if i'm not mistaken your main is mined out. Don't be afraid to expand wheneever you have the lumber. You will have a surge of it in the mid to late game. Use it on towers and expansions.
    When you finally get your mech army in the end, you dont have any clockwerks, and is lacking upgrades, against your enemies fully upgraded and powerful army.
    No Tech-Units. Tech-Units are awesome. They cannot fight, but they are still great with Land Mines, to gain map control and weaken your enemy before fighting them, Seeker Missiles to focus Heroes or high priority units with, and EMPs for awesome AoE control. Late game they can even go into a fighting mode if needed.

    I will look at the other replays and reply to your email regarding all your listed matters soon.

    Edit: Also Sucide Squads in zepplins to drop on the enemy caster/ranged line can be highly effective.

    No, i like to do my own terrain. I have a style i like to keep through out all my maps, and though it might not be totally pretty, its unique and gets the job done.
  15. Doomfan64


    Apr 7, 2012
    Okay, I'm willing to accept that goblins are a somewhat difficult race to play in comparison to the others. But some of my arguments still stand, like the nerubian unit's sleep power.

    Also, I never said that troopers were a weak unit. I said that having an army composed mainly of ranged units (Which is pretty much your only option. After all, the only non hero melee units are the clockwerks) is a bad idea since all your ranged units will be struggling to get around one another, thus leaving them vulnerable. Even if you move them all in very close so the back units can get in range, they're still vulnerable while moving up.

    Also on that note, I noticed they still seemed to cheat besides the map view because it seemed they were able to control up to 20 or so units in one group while a player can only control one. This is infuriating and ended up being one of the things that made me deliver my original statement.

    P.S: Do the creep-controlled barracks actually make units?

    There's a glitch with the goblin troopers and how they decay. When the camera leaves the sight of the trooper, their corpses turn into a different model.

    Looking forward to your future progress; however, it's obvious this map isn't finished yet. :)

    Terrain 5/5
    Races 1/5
    units 2/5
    Spells 1/5
    Concept 5/5
    triggers 3/5
    Presentation here at the Hive 6/5

    There is a lot wrong with this map. I map the same concept map a few months ago. I know that there are Icons out there for the Gnoll pack. They come with the Gnoll pack. This map is barely playable and looks pretty bad in game. Gnoll pack is incomplete, why? Its here and its awesome. Some things are really cool. I like the Mount ability for the gnoll hero. Goblins don't look good in this map. They only use a few goblin building the rest are draenei. Does that make sense? It is possible to create 5 complete races with matching Icons and units with build animations. See [URL="http://www.hiveworkshop.com/forums/maps-564/kalimdor-islands-233684/?prev=status%3Da%26u%3DLegal_Ease" Kalimdor Islands][/URL]. Don't give up. You show a lot of promise but poor execution. You made a lot of cool spells. They are interesting but maybe too complex for a map which people will only play once if it doesn't rock. Your video is stellar!!! Not so much with the map. Don't be discouraged, these are just the things that you need to do to make fun playable maps. Mine aren't perfect either. Icons should be arranged like standard blizzard games with Hall in the top left corner and farm under that and alter in the x:1 y:1 position. Your terrain is pretty sweet, but I couldn't figure out the deal with the disappearing creeps and the OP gates. Why did you change HP levels too? Hero with 290 HP is just confusing. Anyway, it took a lot of work and you've taken a lot of crap from everyone so +2 rep.

    My review on this map:

    Terrian: 3/5
    Heroes: 2/5
    Races: 1/5
    Spells 2/5
    Balance 2/5
    Polish 2/5
    Lore 1/5

    Overall this map was not the greatest. But it shows a lot of potential. Just take the time to polish your races, and make sure that the most important parts are in the manner you want them. (I found that the Ziggurat can only be build on unblighted land?) I believe you should keep trying and improving, eventually your maps will become superb and your ideas will flourish through the gameplay. :goblin_good_job:
