Mgeterno11 Presents


Map Info:

An epic altered melee map with some miscellaneous features. You have to slay your enemies with the new spectacular spells and new mighty units.

Future update: New loading screen, and also, youtube video. Furthermore, an Arch Druid hero for the Night Elf race.

Number of Players: 10 Estimated Gameplay time: 30-60 Minutes


Gold Mines

  • Some of them contains 25000 gold.

    They are guarded by strong creeps.

    The creeps drop precious items which can increase your Hero's power much.

    Always conquer a second or third mine. This will increase your gold income very much.


Like in every melee map there are easy, medium and hard-difficulty creeps. They drop sometimes really useful items. However, beware of the creeps, because most of them are very strong. But you will claim your reward because they drop several items such as artifacts and tomes.

Neutral Buildings

There are several neutral buildings, they are guarded by creeps, except the Tavern. You can also find two custon neutral buildings, such as Artifact Shop, and Mercenary hiring lodge.

  • Four Mercenary camps
  • Five Goblin Mercants
  • Four Goblin Laboratories
  • Three Taverns
  • Two Marketplaces
  • Five Fountain of Healths
  • Five Fountain of Manas
  • and other custom buildings

Custom Heroes

There are several custom heroes which are more powerful that the standard heroes.They have spectacular and special abilities, including Auras which may increase your troops' health regeneration or decrease the enemy's moovement speed. Each of them has their own advantages and disadvantages. You might find them helpful in harmful circumstances.

Human, Orc, and Undead have 3 Custom Heores
Night Elf has two only, but one of them has a healing spell, too.

Some else stuff about map:

Damage and Spell Name Detection

These two feaures help you alot during the game becasue you can see how much damage did the units of the enemy or your units take. You can even see the name of the casted spell, which allows you to react instantly, and try to awoid the spell.

Before playing the map:
"Oh hey, I really like altered melee, i hope this one is good!"
After playing the map:
"Too hard creeps, too weak heroes."
"Same units..boring"
"OH look there, ICE GIANTS...THEY CAST REIGN OF FIRE!"(lol seriously wtf?).

Just some funny comment there lol, now for the serious part:
1.Make wider paths.
2.Make stronger heroes(chaos attack would be awesome)
3.New heroes? or even units?

Many thanks that you told me that. Actually, you can hire mighty units in the Mercenary camps and do you know a model which is similar to rain of fire( icy.)?
I will make the melee heroes stronger and new units, anbd edited abilities. :)

Don't go off-topic. You can make one if you know how to handdle Photoshop or other crap like that.
Sorry, i will write it to the help section. Can i make animated pictures with gimp 2,too?

Thnank you GamerCreutz. Yes, i realised it that the number of downloadings have increased very much since i have imported this cool image. I have a request: would you look the quest triggers and tell me whevenever it is okay or wrong? :))
