Author's notes:

This map is my entry for the "[$100 Prize Pool] Melee Mapping Contest - 1v1" I tried to do something visually different from the classic style of warcraft maps while still being balanced. As always, feedback is welcome.

Well, that space background is kind of like a image following the screen but shakes at times (like motion in frames). Approved. ============================ Always check/recheck the Map Submission Rules! (Map Submission Rules) A detailed changelog...

    Your are the author of A Strange World and Astral Sea!!! I remember Astral Sea a bit narrow with paths but with the undeground tileset very nice executed.

    This one seems to be the ultimate execution of your knoledge gained in the previous maps!!!

    Glad to see you are still mapping!

    edit

    @Erkan

    an impresive work, some areas seems flat (you used the rise and low tool) maybe some areas can have a bit more work.

    This is another maybe, if this map was mine (sadly is not) but if it was, I would change the market for the goblin lab or the mercenary camp . (the mercenary camp probably) Why, because I lust the goblin market more than the others. To buy the 3 permanent items to boost the hero and some scroll to use it in battle.
    why I will waste my time in the mercenary camp, rigth foward to the market.
    I have to be very desesperate and have gold to buy units in the mercenary camps.
    But is a sugestion not something that really matters.


    raiting 4/5 (I will consider my final rate after reading the mod review)

    Another awsome map for the contest, the mapping section is boiling of really good maps. Have good luck

    Astral Sea was my very first map uploaded here years ago. I admit I had absolutely no idea about how to balance a map back then. The Etherium is basically a remake, hope you like it.

    Glad you like it.

    I was blown away by the stunning visuals of this right from the start. Just looking at the mini-map gives an indication as to just how incredible the map is. Doodads and custom ressources have been used with great effect to create a unique map that sets the scene for some epic games in the Etherium. Filled with lots of bridges, choke-holds are the name of the game and with plenty of gold fights can continue for a long time. Great work.
