3 of the alliance's heroes have gathered and moved to the orcs hideout, the portal's control center.
This hideout seems to be under lead of the orc Warlock Gul'Moor as a spy reports.
It seems like Gul'Moor wants to scale up the portal to lead more orcs to Azeroth, under the urgent of this situation Dagren, Garithos and Antonidas decided to attack the orcs at once, without waiting for any greater force.

    I overall liked the map, it plays well despite being rather rough visually.
    Movement controls well, considering arrow key movement in wc3 has always needed to be approached with caution can come across as frustrating when mishandled.

    This is one map where I'd dare say having less and more simple terrain might work better; and by that I mean removing all the bumps on the ground, and perhaps reducing the number of texture used to 1.
    The reason why I feel this way is because it was quite a struggle initially to figure out what exactly was happening, quite a significant amount of visual clutter; more due to size of unit/doodad models rather than too many of them.

    If I were to critique with the map design on any level, it would be that allowing enemies to auto-attack you from behind seems cheap. And sure, perhaps you've done the math and found it to be balanced. That said, it feels imbalanced even if it may not be so (take what you want from this).

    All these however, are minor gripes and the map is overall a well put together and suitably challenging.

    3.25/5.
    Quite interesting reminiscing those arcade spaceship shooting games. However, dying touching buildings can be a pain and attacking units that are behind the hero is not always possible with the southern screen margin coming rising.

    Hai, I was wondering if you are planning on making a longer version of this map? I had a blast playing it, but it was so short!

    I had some ideas but lacked the motivation and was busy with something.
    Thanks for your Feedback, i'll think it over.

    Edit: I guess i'll do it, the question remains how long is a suited amount of Play-Time. Maybe 20 minutes, or better more?

    I had a ton of fun playing this with my friends. We still have not beaten the first boss, but hopefully we will soon. Thanks Tasyen for making this :)
