Map Info:
An usual melee playable map, there's no cinematics or quests in the map and for that's it's usual. If you have choosed the humans, then you must destroy the Night elf bases guarded the Fortress, or if you have choosed the Night elves, then you must destroy the Human bases sieged the Fortress.. The map size is 128x128, playable 116x116 in the Sunken Ruins.

Some else stuff about map:
The map is ordinary for 4 players. In a fight are Humans against Night elves. I think in this map doesn't have any bugs, but report if you find.

    This is a medium-quality melee map where 2 allied night elven players will fight 2 allied human players. The terrain is pleasant and the map feels a little RPG-ish too due to the unusual placement of creeps and the layout of the terrain. Could be nice to play alone or multiplayer.

    Review

    POSITIVES
    - Not too hard, not too easy
    - Big space for building your base
    - Ally is helpful
    - Haven't found any bugs
    - Variable difficulty
    - Terrain is good

    NEGATIVES
    - You should allow that someone could play for the "player 2", if someone wanted to play this with his friend
    - How about some new units, man? The original warcraft-ish gameplay is little bit boring after 10 years
    - Map could be bigger

    Edit: Changed my review, since the map has improved, good job.

    Short review!

    This is quite a mediocre melee map that conceals its true potential somehow. The terrain feels a little bit too flat and could use of a better tile variation. While some areas looked really good such as the pseudo-ancient-library guarded by mur'guls or the mur'gul camp itself at the bottom right corner. Those parts had tile variation and appropriate ornaments to decorate the place handsomely. However, the rest doesn't feel like that. The starting locations, for example, only have some dirt/rough dirt plus trees and rocks randomly scattered. You could use of extra vegetation since this is the theme. One final recommendation would be recolouring the waterfalls to a greenish colour since the water has that colour. Azure waterfalls on green waters look weird.

    Enough with the visuals, time to head to the gameplay part. Firstly, the items. What a disaster man... do not let all items drops be specific because you ruin the randomness of every game. You do not get the same items every melee match, don't you? You must make them random to achieve this. In addition, why am I stuck with the human race? If one would like to choose the orcs, why can't he? Allow the races to be choosable (preferably the enemy one as well) and allow this game to be playable with more than one players because it is very possible by making a computer slot an empty slot. Finally, why is there only one expansion gold mine for 4 players? This is madness, at least 4 expansion gold mines should be present for a good balance.

    Overall, the map has potential as I formerly stated thus I will set it to needs fix.

    This map has some coolness. I am wondering however, why does castle spawn near the woods and gold mine in the centre of the base? lol looks word xD

    also why are there unguarded goldmines?

    I like neutral creeps

    I've tried the map and I think the terrain is wonderful, but maybe you should edit the races a bit. That would make your map unique.

    This looks like altered melee to me.
