Sniper - Highly skilled sharpshooter. Has the critical strike and hide abilities. (Ranged)
Grenadier - A man whit grenades. Exceptional damage versus buildings, but slow and vulnerable. Has the Ultra Grenade and Acid Grenade abilities. (Ranged)

    The Cold War is a game of 8 players(4 on each team) controlling a platoon (5 food limit) on an objective to destroy the opposing base. The battlefield is a small area where players will directly send their units to damage the base or retreat to heal.

    The game is pretty much like footmen frenzy, just a little nerfed and slow paced.

    I had tried this map in single player and find it boring. It is due to lack of players. Since there is no custom races, the balancing for units should be okay.

    _________________
    I found a bug with hotkey of Rockets, hope you do check the rest.
    I suggest to allow more terrain work as for a 4v4, the terrain is obviously to small.
    I also suggest to increase the starting food limit(Wondering if there is a way, currently, to increase food limit)

    Temporary Ratings(2/5)
    I think it is unfair to rate it now because I hope for further improvements, the version is still early, may be in time to come, a new and well made RTS. Keep up the perserverance. I will be reviewing it again.

    Improve the description, add bold titles, colorize the text, add spaces between each sentence, noone is going to read it like that. You can use colors etc. by writing the text in a comment box.

    Send in the suicide tank for some free lumber :D Pretty nice map gonna test it online, lots of typos though :(.
    Just an idea:
    There could spawn loot here and there over the map which will give lumber when taken. This could add a more tactical situation if applied correctly. Just an idea :D

    He's right though...

    Rejected (until updated)
    Reason: improve the description (fix all the typo's as well, let someone proof-read it).

    And seriously though, when making a description about your map DON'T use "u" or "tipes". Use "you" and "types".

    I didn't really like the gameplay, sorry.. to me gets boring pretty quickly and there isn't anything interesting or new in these types of map genre.

    Not really, you should really colorize the text and add bold titles...
    You can do so, by writing the description in a normal comment box, then copy&pasting it into the map description box when updating the map.
