FEEDBACK
Gameplay & Entertainment:
For a melee maps' gameplay, this score counts how well you utilized blizzards gameplay into the map.

Alright, goldmines are spread out evenly, with a large amount of gold. It's good that you did that as there are only 4. It makes it very competitive on how gold mines are only between 2 players, so if you lose one you have to fight for another. Neutral buildings aren't evenly spaced, It sucks to travel to an enemy side of the map to use that zeppelin strategy or get your mercenary units some always use. I suggest you put a set on one side and a set on the other. Also, there are enough trees here.

For the creeps, as Zaramorus said above, it's not great only putting one creep for a creep camp. The reason is, all the damage goes straight towards the hydra and it dies way to fast. I don't recommend creeps in the middle of a path AND guarding a hero tavern because, many use the hero tavern in the beginning by sending peasants over. In blizzard maps, taverns are uncovered. Creeps should always be enclosed in an area away from blocking the path, as it would just be annoying for you to get hit by creeps while traveling across the map. In the creep drops, there shouldn't be a +6 agility because that's just mega biased to agility. +1 or 2 agility is fine for small camps, but for bigger camps you need items that are useful to all heroes.

15/25
Terrain & Layout:
The use of the tiles in the map is average, could be better but it's perfectly acceptable. Map isn't flat, that's good. It's a little lumpy and it seems the smooth button isn't used much, but I think that's what you were aiming for.

The size of the map is perfect, not to big or small. It's layout is not bad, there are a lot of chokepoints but to counter it you can flank around the small ponds/lakes.

6/10
Doodads & Scenery:
(EDIT: I noticed from your screenshot it doesn't look decorative, it actually is ingame!) You did great in some areas and not to good in others. You have nice variety of sunken city doodads, especially near the water. Some of the only problems with them is that plants shouldn't be in the middle of a very deep part of the water and instead the corals. You have shells and animals spread out across the map, maybe some more shrubs but mostly it's visually pleasing.

7/10
Bugs & Consistency:
No spots where it would cause major errors. Computers lose workers to the hydra if they cut to far but it's not a problem.

5/5

NOTES
Overall this melee map is fine, it's main attribute is doodad placement. I give it a high 3, but not enough for a 4. Feel free to contact me about this review, or to say hi! (+1) Reputation point for uploading and your hard work.

Map is pretty good, but needs some fixes. First of all one creep camp only consists of one hydra, but dont make creep camps with only one monster. What i also dont like is that all monsters drop a random level something items, but change some of the drops to like:
random level 4 permament item or random level 2 power-up item, but overall map is pretty good. terrain and environment looks awesome.
