This is an altered melee map not melee. Change the tag please. Fixed start locations in melee is not a very good idea. Here you've compensated with the black mask but after some games, people will remember the positions. Avoid playing music through...

My opinions are subjective. But review can change over time.

Gameplay consists of slightly altered melee, like some stuff is disabled, but generally you can get standard Warcraft 3 melee experience out of this. But then again this should be considered altered melee. It's a bit unfair that humans have prebuilt Farms and Griffon Aviary and ships.

Terrain Looks ok, but needs slight improvements.

Enjoyability is at medium level, at this point at least


For a final.
Map is over all okayish, but definitely needs improvements of terrain and gameplay before it gets approved.


Rate.

This is an altered melee map not melee. Change the tag please.

  1. Fixed start locations in melee is not a very good idea. Here you've compensated with the black mask but after some games, people will remember the positions.
  2. Avoid playing music through the sound channel. Use the proper play music trigger.
  3. Not at all a balanced map, gameplay or terrain-wise. Random stuff all around.
Changes are so minimal they are insignificant and serve no means for creativity.

Please learn from altered melee maps:
How to: Create a Full-working Custom Race
Custom Race Creation: Advanced Mechanics
UB - Ultimate Battle v2.20b 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)
and also read the melee mapping guides.

Substandard.

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.
