Compared to your template map this is just terrible.
Usage of tiles is lacking.
Too much flatness.
Also it could use more doodads.
And the camp with the Skeletons is in so open area. Put some doodads near them like pile of skulls or impaled corpse.
Right now i would say 1/5 and it needs alot of improvement.

This is a very poor melee map for multiple reasons:

1- The terrain is too cheap. It's completely flat and mono-tiled in the starting areas. Using more tiles and some raising/lowerings will be surely better. A lack of doodads is also another reason for your cheap terrain
2- The expansion gold mines are placed in terrible locations. They are too restricted to build an expansion base and surely too vulnerable to enemy units. I mean, the enemy can directly access to the expansion base with extreme ease
3- The Goblin Merchant is unguarded?? Probably you did that because it is too near to the starting locations but in all cases, Neutral Passive buildings (Tavern excluded) must be guarded by some creeps (except Way Gates, they are not mandatory)
4- The map is too boring to play (and that's what ruins everything about your map)
5- Map Type: Altered Melee?? Wasn't this a melee map?

This melee map is not good enough to get approved. I'll have to vote for rejection. Next time you make a melee map for 4 players, be sure there are much more creeps and that the expansion gold mines are not in restricted areas.

FEEDBACK
Gameplay & Bugs:

The starting bases have little space. And a building started in the wrong direction proves to be a handicap for the player - even before he's mustered any kind of troops, the creeps come in and waste his gold for such building. The expansions are the same, they can hardly be built on.

The lack of creeps in each player's area promotes aggressive gameplay into contested/opposing territory, yet the choke points can't contain outgoing armies. There is also a lack of trees - er, mushrooms. They won't last for a normal-length game.

7/20
Terrain & Aesthetics:

Tiles are patterned for the temple, but the cinematic blue fires don't really contribute to the 'temple' feel. Tile variation elsewhere is nice, but the land still feels devoid of doodads and decorations.

I do like the neatly placed doodads on the cliff edges of the fountain area, though.

10/20
Presentation:

There are typos, but the description is decent and contains needed info.

6/10

Total Score: 23/50​
