Sanctuary of Sargeras

This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
Sanctuary of Sargeras


Forgotten and abandoned ... this sanctuary was created by Sargeras himself and it was used as a place for sacrifices. A legend told that if there were no sacrifice on each new moon he would destroy this island - but who believes in legends?

=======================================================


This is my third map and its my first 2on2 map.
I never created 2on2s because they are quite difficult to do.
But now its ready and I even uploaded it for some map contests.


Here is some info about the map:

Tileset: Sunken Ruin
Gamestyle: 2on2 or 1on1
Tactical:
  • 4 Expos
  • 4 Shops
  • 2 Mercs
  • 2 Markets
  • 1 Tavern

Other usefull info:

  • A orange creep very close to base - droppin lvl 2 permament
  • Shops drop rune of visibilty
  • Some possilbe tricks with the warden

    Yes it's made quite nicely. I noticed some sharp water edges but they are almost invisible so I don't think thats important. Great job

    Very nice terrain. Seems to be quite balanced too.

    Looks very clean.

    How did you get the neutral buildings to show up like that?

    The thematic of the terrain isnt new - well - what should I do to make it better? I mean - there were a lot of maps before and every map here on hive is not with a new thematic - I mean if someone create a rpg its not something new or something special. But I think I actauly tried to make the map look creative - I used those stone walls a lot and tried to focus on some specials like the walls which can enter only the warden, which will bring some positive aspects.
    But what should I do to make a totaly newlike looking terrain? Pick another tile set?

    And I dont know how you vote for other maps =) Is it possible to get 5/5 from you?

    its just isles again... for a 5/5 it should have somethin unique =)
    don mind me wrong its great-but there already other maps wth that theme.
    And with theme I did not meant that it is a meele map or a rpg, thats always ok you dont have to do some totally new.
    To the areas which only warde is able to enter- maybe at at a harder creep camp a chance to get this blink dagger? Just that this sitution could happpen:
    someone powns warden , waren blinks in her specail place and thinks:"now im safe", then suddenly a dk apppears and says: "No, sry":grin:
    Sure i rate sometimes 5/5, but quite rare.

    Excellent map, not really anything I'd like to criticize. Keep it up!

    Rui's review for "Sanctuary of Sargeras", melee map by R.Gaming_Strike

    I knew I'd be losing an awesome job if I didn't play this map, so I did! I actually liked this map a lot. I played it with shiiK and I don't even need to take a look at it in the editor. As always, it's R.Gaming_Strike's expertise on these things: follows Blizzard's guidelines concerning starting location space and guard distances, there's more than enough room for fighting, well-set drops, and fair creep camps!

    The only thing I keep insisting on is that people make Mercenary Camps more lightly guarded. Anyway, it's not like the creep camp was very hard, so I'm not taking points because of this.


    My rating is a 5/5 (Highly Recommended)! Marked as Reviewed. Keep up the good work!
