    I'm looking for some feedback and suggestions for improvements on this map:

    Prophet's Gambit v1.9.5

    Prophet's Gambit is based on the idea of a sandbox styled AoS map with a boss rush arena and item based Hero/skill builds.
    The map itself allows you to pick a side or go neutral, and change your hero OR side at will (within limitations).
    There's building aspects, co-op with challenging boss fights, and competitive play with 4 different ways to win the game.
    Plenty of hidden "legendary" items can be acquired through various means.

    Suggested players: 2 to 8
    Average play time: 1 - 2 hours

    I don't think that's possible. They're only reviewing maps obviously.

    @izaiphovias, added your project to the list!

    @Rex., Sorry, but I think we'll stick to maps for now. However, there seems to be an interest for other resources such as stories or, as here, windows games.
    I'm having an idea for alternative resources though, so keep your eyes open. :)

    @Wark, I'll add you to the list in a while, I need to go right now. :)

    Defense of Base v 4.14

    First of all, thank you for introducing this to me (@deepstrasz), (@Rufus) for initiating the post, this map is a hero defense game, each player use a hero and fight with waves of armies against an enemy team. The main objective is to take down enemy team's base and defend your team's base.

    Features simple item upgrades and many interesting heroes, most of the original heroes remain unchanged.

    Here's my map.

    It's a map that based off in one of the flash games called 'Age of War'
    It's a offense map that your priority is to defeat your opponent by sending out troops.

    Hmm, does this accept maps from map development section too ?
    If it does had those incomplete(well they are playable, its just i had some revisions in mind meanwhile) one more race maps:

    [Altered Melee] - Yet another Fel horde attempt
    Tries Fel Horde based on mixture of wc2 and 3 techtrees, no feedback any received so far.

    [Altered Melee] - Yet another Naga Race attempt
    Attempts to add playable Naga, has some known issues as the posts go.

    [Altered Melee] - Yet another Bloodelf attempt
    Adds Bloodelves as 5th faction, pick human and change to Bloodelf at start.
    Any feedback outside of Maelstrom Engine being OP(hint: try not to spam it(hint2: it will be changed to an artillery unit in the nextbest revision) would be most welcome.

    Great idea! I always wanted to play Warden anyway (but always postponed it to wait for more updates), so I might aswell write a review for it when I'm done.

    Shadowmancer looks interesting too. I'll give it a try.

    Throne of Azora 1.07

    Here is my map:

    A story driven game with RPG features, which takes place in the Kingdom of Azora, a medieval world with little fantasy elements. Take control of Ethan, a veteran soldier and his companion Sammy, a dog.
    The main aspect of this map is the story, which will change according to the decisions you make during the game.

    Try to make a time deal with the people you are exchanging reviews as a 1h map cannot be compared with a 4h one or a campaign. We need to be fair about all of this. Also, you should not be forced to continue playing something you don't really like but that doesn't mean you have to slack or abuse this notion. That means, some valuable feedback should still be given.

    Hi guys! :)
    I would really love to get yet another feedback on my finished project Valley of Decay Rpg v1415c
    Its called "Valley of Decay Rpg". I have worked a few years on it.
    Its for 3+ players, though i really recommend to play it with 4+ players. 4 is perfect, actually.
    Its basically an Rpg with an easy starting quest-row. As you progress your characters, you will start to face hard bosses with cool boss mechanics.
    The further you progress there, the more complex the bossfights will become.
    Therefore you will need a tank(Warrior), a healer(priest or shaman), and one or more damage dealers(at least one ranged recommended).
    If you can find 4 brave people who can test and review this game, i would be very glad :)
