    Thanks Lotk (aka WarpSlayer) and Good Luck

    Well, I have to say that, thanks to LotK, ToJ will commence development and will surely become much better with his efforts put to task on a map that I simply didn't have the time that Toj deserved.

    Thank you LotK, for continuing ToJ.
    A map that many, I am sure, will enjoy.
    Including me tonight after I consume some herbal tea (winkwink,nodnod).

    - - - A few hours later - - -

    Good stuff LotK, loved the fog changes, makes each stage look even more unique.
    In single player there's to much time between waves (it was like that when I gave permission, but it was something I never got around to doing (among other things and those other things you have done an awesome job at fixing :D)).
    On stage 3 the ceiling light is a bit to bright. tone down the intensity a bit, or even better, try and make it a dark red so it fits more satisfyingly with the visual theme of the stage terrain.

    And fix the credits (theres no need to thank yourself! LOL)

    Great map!

    Although it's pretty annoying people who just start are always so annoyingly stupid sometimes -.-

    1) Terrain - Nicely done, I must congratulate the author for it.

    2) Sound - Please set the sound back to normal. The current sound was soo annoying that it gives me a headache.

    3) Hotkey - Ability hotkey was working fine, but where is the hotkey for the rest of it? Item, learning ability and other doesn't seems to have it.

    4) Detail - All necessary detail was provided, good work.

    5) Balance - Tested this at single player to check it out before moving it to multiplayer, I have to said it was well balance at singleplayer. At multiplayer, you should tone down the amount of waves. It was still to difficult even at normal mode especially for newbie player at multiplayer mode, I team up with a bunch of new player and the entire party was overrun at stage 2 because they are not familiar with the game style and also due to the shortage of team (4 player only). It wasn't easy to get a full house for this map since nobody are familiar about this map yet.

    6) Fun/Replayability - I was having quite a fun playing it, but more additional unique feature into it would make it much better.

    Overall, this map was indeed a good quality map and almost at the edge of 5/5 (Highly Recommend). A few more adjustment to the balance, tone down the amount of waves and sound, fix the hotkey and adding more unique feature into it would definitely makes this map worth it.

    Right now, it was good. But still not at the top performance, if a comparison was to be make. The Chosen One by Aeroblyctos are much fun; however this map are still recommended to all fans lover of rpg genre map.

    The sound (for reasons unknown) echoes.
    To remedy that you can uncheck '3d positional audio' under War Crafts sound options (I dont notice a difference with it unchecked anyway, so I leave it off).
    If anyone knows why the echo occurs that information would be greatly appreciated.

    Losing because your unfamiliar with the game is inevitable (like any game, even Chess has this problem).
    However, whenever I host with random people they tend to want a remake once they get the hang of it, and enjoy the challenge, instead of getting steam rolled :p

    Thanks for the fair review and I'm sure LotK will do a fine job.

    Yeah, I know. But at my place, apart from DotA. Any other game that are well made, but not popular have the tendency of not getting it in full house.

    I recommend a implementation of Training mode or Easy, to enable new user to familiarize with it. Although it isn't a problem for those who read description, but it was better to have 1 for a complete illiterate person.

    I play with some illiterate people and they have the tedency of keeping a item that are not suit to their class.. :O

    aye the map is rather difficult unless you get a full house of intelligent ppl which is a massive bitch to get due to close minded ppl sticking to dota and a few other mainstream maps(good maps just over hosted) thus causing more uniqe maps such as this to be ignored by all save for a few who venture out to try a new map

    Really liked the map. 4/5 due to sound issues, otherwise 5/5.
    I've played with some guys on battle net, it was really nice, and it incurages teamplay (weapon upgrades). We got to stage 9 i think, but clerig got d/ced and we died at druid of dead (some big archimond black boss). to bad my lvl33barbarian-tank couldnt hold him.
    ;)

    Scenario ---> Map Options ---> Uncheck Custom Sound Environment

    (Psychotic Sound Environment causes echoes.)
