An altered melee with very little bases and lot of ressource. The key of victory is not only on the quick assaults but also on being quick to get a expand and as soon as possible to go on map center ton get treasures !


Features

-Heroes can go to level 20
-Undead buildings can be built on non-corrupted land.
-Starting ressources set to 5000 gold and lumber
-Lumbermill and orc's equivalent are able to get the gold back for orcs and humans
-Every 5 minutes, in the middle of the map spawn 5 mobs. If you kill them all, you shall get a bounty for your courage. But beware to the last level of guardians !
-You get a regular income of 2 po per second , wich is very usefull to get gold even when you haven't any worker on a mine, even if this is less good for economy to only count on income.
-The time of creation of almost all units have been lowered from 100% to 66%.
-Trees are very productives and give you a lot a wood.
-You haven't got any mine in your first base.

    Great description.
    The map itself also sounds great. I have one question though:
    Does the player start with more gold than usual?
    +Rep for good description and details

    Thank you :)

    Yes , as I wrote it , you start with 5000 gold and 5000 lumber. And you have a income of 2 gold perd second, wich I find really very useful , because it give you gold and can help you, but can't take the place of even 1 peasant in the mine :)

    This map needs an AI. It's a tiny 1v1 map so I don't think it's kinda multiplayerish to ignore the absence of an AI. Then, making an Albatross drop a Killmaim? Dude, that's madness! The bottom player clearly has a very big advantage for that. Just a flying unit or a ranged unit and that big item is mine. This must be fixed. A good item cannot be dropped by a creep that doesn't even attack.
    About the idea of the map, honestly, I don't find it that original. The idea is very simple and the map can be done in a couple of minutes (if there was an AI at least I wouldn't say that probably)

    Well, after all that, the map is not ready for an approval. I'd suggest to leave it pending as long as it remains like this.

    Thank you for explaining yourself :)
    For the Killmain, it was a little joke with some friends ^^'.
    But I will make this monster invulnerable, you'r right, it's too OP.
    Honestly, I don't know at all how to make an AI. Really. I would like to know it, but I don't.
    And because I don't use Jass or VJass, the only way should be to use the AI editor. However, even if I never tried to make en AI, I shall try.

    This map has been created because I was annoyed of making spellpacks and had swear to don't continue my other map until my last spellpack was finished. So I made this map, and I know it's not very original ^^'.

    However, thank you very much for answering :)

    Turquoise Archipelago
    by Gisgalion
    [​IMG]FEEDBACK
    Gameplay & Bugs:

    The idea is a bit interesting; I've so far found no bugs. Quest log explanations are nice. Starting bases are adequate enough so that you can train base units and grab that just-as-spacious expansion. I'll have to agree with Shadow Fury though - if he meant for the Computer Player or the Mobs, either way - the former doesn't know how to destroy gates and the latter too; they just stay behind it. Sleeping, some of them.

    Some of the creeps are powerful, specifically, the Naga ones. Their levels are rather low for their power level. The Naga Royal Guard for instance could be level 9 due to its healthy summon, abilities, and its 53 (average) Chaos damage. Though levels seem to be for display they actually are for the exp these creeps grant.

    9/20
    Terrain & Aesthetics:

    Sadly, there is not much tile variation. There are some tiles of dirt in a field of sands; the other tiles would work here. A plus for this criterion is that there are doodad Nagas - though they don't look like statues, they have a different feel that's more subtle.

    Pathways are rather thin at some points. Usage of critters are nice, and the environment is pretty adequate.
    13/20
    Presentation:

    There are typos, but the description is decent.
    5/10

    Total Score: 27/50​

    Thank you all :)
    Yeah, there is really a few trees, but as Mythic, you can get a lot of lumber with only one of them.
    I know it's not an advantage for Night Elves, but it's a good solution to get space in bases :).
    And there is a lot of trees in your expands, so you can really get almost infinite wood with every race.

    And I'm gonna update for Hidden tag :)

    EDIT : Oh, and what could I do to improve the map ?

    Nice map,
    good job Gisgalion.
    But it is true that the map is a bit small.
