    First of all, let me congratulate you. Now:

    - The Night Power system is awesome, I loved that thing.
    - The way you preserved the naga theme from Warcraft 3 is great
    - That Eye of the Depths ability, reminds of one from Warcraft 2, I think you took inspiration from there xD
    - Since the troops are spawned upon the Watery Gates, it allows you to quickly summon reinforcements if you expand your primary base
    - The Dreamweaver hero is really cool
    - The Static Shock ability from the Stormcaller spellcaster unit is a very useful additional for any army since every troop nearby that attacks will get a considerable boost
    - You seem to play DotA a lot, I saw many abilities inspired from it xD




    - Units spawn upon those Watery Gates but the thing it lacks is a timer above them so that the player can actually know where the next troop will finish training
    - Idle workers icon still shows a Night Elf Wisp, you can change that, is not a major thing
    - The Shadowstep ability's trigger of the Soulcatcher hero has bugs. It consumes no mana and does not enter in cooldown if it is used on an allied target
    - The Reaper Slash passive of the Soulcatcher also has a bug, it says it deals 225% of the actual damage but in fact it deal around 12k dmg. That's a one shot strike and it also lifesteals.
    - You cannot cancel troops training because they are trained separated from the main troops building.




    Overall, the custom race you've made works properly and did a very good job. Approved with a 4/5 rating. :plol:

    I've been a little busy these past few days, but I finally had time to watch your video. I really appreciated it :D

    Thank you for your observations. :thumbs_up:
    I'll continue working on this map and try to solve these problems and bugs as soon as I can.
