    It seems there has been an identity theft, or intentionally done for the right name to be displayed in the Map display list. This map will be set to Rejected until we clear up the situation.

    Rui's Review
    [?]Bugs: I found no bugs in the map, however, several other players reported that they did. I'm leaving this blank.
    [+]Hive Workshop Requirements: The map contains a valid name, an author name, a description, but has a wrong map type.
    [+]Imported Material: The imported material was necessary for a project such as this. I got the feeling you even needed more.
    [+]Machine/Net-Friendly: The map is friendly towards low connection speed players and does not appear to lag.
    [+/-]Originality: Certainly not completely original, as there are many games similar to this, but you did a very good job in bringing a map that is somewhat different.
    [+/-]Terrain: I feel the terrain (the body, that is) could have been planned differently. As it is, you can't tell where you are. Perhaps you should make this more clear for the player.
    [-]Ingenuity: No special effects used.
    [-]Fun Factor/Gameplay: The idea was good, but the gameplay turned out to be slightly boring. Maps such as Tree Tag and Corruption of Sargeras are certainly better.
    [-]Object Editor Work Quality: You seem to have hasted a bit on the object editor work. You could have made armors and damages work differently in order to fit here, but instead, you rushed a few units, some stronger than others. The result? Only the strongest ones get used.
    [-]Balance: The game didn't seem too balanced. The viruses could claim various places in no time. Of course, the viruses have to have time in order to put up a fight, but I feel the Immune System players are too few in order to handle all the players. That or my testers didn't play the game very well.
    Either way, let me tell you what happened. I gathered gold, obviously, I did upgrades while me and an ally made some average strength soldiers. Later game, I had 2k gold, or whatever it was, and I thought: "what am I doing with all this gold?", I trained about 6-7 anti-bodies and we destroyed the t-cell towers (or whatever they're named) in no time, then someone attacked the heart, and we won.

    I had already thought in making a human body map, I guess you had the idea before me. This map could have been better, I feel it was too rushed.
    My rating for this resource is 9/20, approximately 2 (Lacking).

    ~Thank you for using the Hive Workshop

    Just a note, the bug that everyone was complaining about is that you could abuse a bug with a virus to repick if you died in the first five minutes, meaning that the body had effectively no chance of winning.

    I really like this version. Some of the other ones are pretty bad.

    I found one small problem. When playing as the autoimmune disorder, the upgrades do not affect your hero. If this was intentional, then never mind. If it wasn't, please fix it. Other wise the hero is fairly weak (except his spells which rock).

    uhhhh. This was made by me. And GhostieB was my accomplice, but that is not his account. Is there anything we can do to remedy this situation?

    Hey this is the future calling!

    We are a bunch of guys who would like this project to go further and loved the map!
    is there any possibility that you can/will update the map for newer versions of wc3?
    even as far as be able to host it in Euroloader?
    With best regards. The Future

    I fixed this map for 1.24+ but I don't know if anything got damaged by the fix. We played a few rounds and it seems fine.
    Cheers.
