Too much Cho (Altered Melee; Vrs.5.2)

Submitted by Babarella
This bundle is marked as substandard. It may contain bugs, not perform optimally or otherwise be in violation of the submission rules.
My first altered melee map. It is made out of what my friends and I are thinking about. Sometimes it is really weird stuff.
The story hehind all this is that there were four nations: Justlandia (select "Orc"), Phillage (select "Human"), Daniopolis (select "Undead") and The Neutral Ground (select "Night elf"). Daniel, the mighty Conquerer, conquered the whole world and called his land Daniopolis. One day three annoyed peasants started a rebellion. They were called Justin, Ludwig and Philipp. They destroyed the state of Daniopolis. After they had won their freedom Justin and Philipp disagreed with each other in everything. Then they started the great war. One faction, The Neutral Ground, led by their friend Ludwig, stayed neutral. His goal was it to make sure that the rules of war won´t be broken and that the beautiful friendship the four of them had won´t suffer under this war. In the end he joined the fighting anyway.
Justlandia: A country full of factories, nuclear waste and mutated people.
Phillage: A normal country, except from the clever population.
Daniopolis: An old country which ones ruled the world, but then was completely wiped out. Now it wants to get his old strength back.
The Neutral Ground: A group of enviromentalists, trees and other protectes of Mother Earth that want the world to be greena again.

IMPORTANT! The AI is not working so you have to play it against another player. I´m sorry for that. I just dont know how to use the AI Editor.

I hope you enjoy my map and please leave feedback even if it is bad. But please don´t make me cry.

This is the fifth version of my map.

What kind of name is that? What does it mean? Items shouldn't be chaotically placed in with upgrades. Weird to have a non-last tier building with only one unit inside and no upgrades (referring to the Barracks). Only one hero with usual Warcraft...

Justins House has Call to Arms but it's for Peasants... Cannot understand why you've switched human with orc workers. Haven't changed much really, sorry, Substandart.

    The races are not pretty modified for altered melee. It's like a mixed up human for both sides.

    Differentiate the race further. Currently, the factory building offers exactly the same thing to both ends. Both sides are also pretty similar in upgrades and structure tree.

    I can see one has potential in massing while other in high tech weaponry.

    Not gonna rate unless you like seeing a 1/5 or 2/5 in your map.

    And are you fine if I use your Avatar name in my map?

    Those feedbacks are nothing much in my opinion to be honest. Feel free to use my avatar name though.

    What kind of name is that? What does it mean?

    1. Items shouldn't be chaotically placed in with upgrades.
    2. Weird to have a non-last tier building with only one unit inside and no upgrades (referring to the Barracks).
    3. Only one hero with usual Warcraft spells.
    4. Drone and Flying Machine have the same icon and look alike. The Bomber too and this one is also too powerful.
    5. Many units don't have abilities. They are practically not differentiated.
    6. The factions are basically copies of themselves based on Human.
    7. Hero abilities aren't specific. "Call big dude" and that's it.
    8. Rusty Steam and Kamikaze Cart look alike, icon and all and the other faction has a similar unit too.
    9. Kamikaze Cart is basically Kamikaze-Cho.

    The overall design is chaotic. I'm not sure what you wanted to do.

    Take a look at how proper altered melee is done:
    How to: Create a Full-working Custom Race
    Custom Race Creation: Advanced Mechanics
    UB - Ultimate Battle v2.00b AI+
    Deforestation of Felwood v2.1.1
    Nightborne v1.04
    Planetary Domination v2.04
    Sands of Time [v1.9]
    The Grand Citadel (Racial Issue 1.6)

    Awaiting Update.

    ADDITIONAL NECESSARY INFORMATION
    • A credits list in the map thread description is required where the names of the resource (models, skins, icons, spells, sound etc.) authors are mentioned along with the specific resource. It would be a luxury to have links leading to the used resources. Credits in the Quest Log would be appreciated too.
    • A detailed changelog in the first post would be helpful to reviewers and notify fans about the newest implementations to your map.
    • Map thread tags are important. Please use those that fit and not more or none.

    I assume you mean "Too Much Cho" and not "To Much Cho" since the latter makes little sense.

    At the beginning they both had human workers and then I switched it.
