    Originality


    An altered melee map which brings us to another race called the Scarlet Crusader each with their own advantages/disadvantages. A very original map, creative concept of what Scarlet Crusaders looks like in melee maps.

    Score: 86/100

    Presentation


    Presentation is realy great! Very informative and even includes a brief lore of the Scarlet Crusader's existence and how it was made. It also lists the great features of this map and an information of what race Scarlet Crusader works and some tips to come up with. Screenshots also looks good and I really like it.

    Score: 91/100

    Design


    The minimap looks good anf fitting to the map. Tooltips in-game looks fine though the tooltip for the Verdict of the General when in buff, it says it increases total hitpoints but what it does is just increase movespeed and spell resistance. Also, you should fix the green icon at the Light-blessed Armor. The icon seems broken or you forgot to put up a DIS icon.

    Score: 63/100

    Triggers


    Not the person to judge triggers and scripts in-game but seeing from your trigger work at WE. It looks neat and organized. Nice job with that.

    Score: 92/100

    Object Data


    Flying Barrage unit (I think that is the name) has no portrait and I do think it could be better if it has one. But overall, everything looks good.

    Score: 82/100

    Gameplay


    Overall, the new race is really great and balanced enough. I did not find any flaws in the race itself but some on the broken icons and some wrong tooltips. That is all!

    Score: 78/100

    [​IMG]
    Fix the missing icon of the Blessed-light Armor. It maybe missing a proper DIS icon into it. You should have a look in it!

    Something wrong with the tooltip of Verdict when buffed on units. It says it increases total hitpoints but it does not.

    Flying Barrage could have something of a portrait. It could be better with a portrait.



    [​IMG]

    Final Score: 82.000/100
    Updated: 5/5 Vote for Rejection (due to the green icons in-game)

    Final Score: 82.000/100

    Those errors will be fixed quickly. Had the fixed icon in game, all I must do is place it.

    Edit: The Verdict Aura buff's tooltip has been changed, and the Light-blessed Armor icon fixed.

    It's interpretation of the race, no one says they HAVE to be Gryphon Riders. The Redeemers are something I made up.

    I can't see the image either. Did you set the album containing the image to public? Maybe the album is set to contacts/friends only?

    Yes. I can see it now as well. The only suggestion I have regarding the picture is to make the Lordaeron Banners red as well.

    Review
    A Footman16 Review

    The Points
    The Good
    -A full set of four custom abilities per hero
    -Triggered abilities
    -Nice custom icons (variation a little lacking will be covered later)
    -Nice custom models (some bad points will be covered later)
    -A lot of custom abilities for standard units
    -Full set of custom items
    -Full set of buildings and icons
    -Entirely new techtree of units

    The To-Be-Improved
    -There is too little variation in icon appearance, silver/gold for abilities and red on units. It is alright to have icons that suit like a common colour scheme for a particular set of abilities but not every single icon.
    -Far too many summonable abilities, the Guardian ability is a bit ridiculous as well and doesn't look that good.
    -Why does the ram and refuge etc have their attack data as a separate ability?
    -The names are a little ridiculous and unfitting I would suggest that you change them. i.e Crusader - Archer, bowman; Squire - Pikeman; Gallant - Rider; Hail - Dwarven Engineering; Exhort magic - Extort? Exorcise magic; Burden of Sin - Magical Burden, Arcane Burden, *something* Burden
    -The abilities are far too OP in some cases and one or two are under powered.
    -Your use of custom models and icons isn't very... uniform. Some of the icons don't fit which isn't advisable. Also don't mix Human and Blood Elf buildings.
    -Some of the Hero models and Icons aren't very suitable.
    -The House's stats are too unbalanced.
    -Some of the units in general are unfitting such as the Redeemer


    The Final Judgement
    A lot to be improved. Just general polishing, as it stands I would give it a 2/5, and an approvable if the above points are updated and fixed.

    It was good. I like how you made the Scarlet Crusade playable only to "Human" players thus preserving the "Human" user interface which was appropriate. There appears to be an issue with some models not having the appropriate icons and having no portraits at all. If you need help with the AI, message me.

    Summary:

    Possibly the Best in a series of great Altered Melee Maps by Wa666r.
    The Scarlet Crusaders are a humanish race with strong female qualities.
    They are full of magic and surprises. This map let's you choose them as
    a substitute for the human race. The buildings, models and icons all look
    really nice. The race feels balanced and the custom spells work well.
    The effects and buffs are eye candy for sure and the units are fun.

    Suggestions:

    -Scarlet Crusader UI would look great in this map.
    -Hall defense ability is a bit OP to start but looks really cool anyway.
    Maybe it should only be available at level 2?
    -Starting units are a bit weak but not too bad.
    -Add some flash with a Multiboard, knockback or other impressive GUI.
