    From the screenshot, the model look nice; but definitely negative for the terrain.

    You'd better add a burning special effect to the Balrog, but Aragorn's model is more like Isildur, and his weapon is Frostmourne?! other parts are OK.

    I meant like step-by-step directions which can be done in multiple ways such as:

    -cinematic
    -quest section
    -(-help) command
    -etc..

    Aragorn's weapon is not frostmorne, it just is it in the picture but in the game it is a typical Aragorn sword, and the Balrog gains a burning effect on his ultimate.

    I didn't say Aragorn's sword is Frostmourne, I said why the model carries Frostmourne instead of a typical sword or Anduril.

    The terrain is not really good, it is way too normal: river in the middle, 2 sides - each with a castle.
    This terrain has been done that many times that it is just boring to look at and boring to play in, why is there always a river in the middle, or why are there always castles at each side?
    It hasn't got anything to do with LOTR, since there is no river, there is no castle near barad-dur (the closest would be Minas Tirith, which is behind mountains).
    Try to make it look more like LOTR.

    There aren't really that much items as far as I've seen, I missed some LOTR-artifacts.

    I haven't seen a lot of triggered spells, though you've said there are... can you give me some examples?
    I've also noticed that a lot of spells are standard (War Stomp, the panda-dodge/crit, the Knives Flurry, breath of fire and so on).

    The creeps in the middle are... standard, right?
    And the big monstriousity drops the one ring (it would be a lot more correct if you take away gollum from the evil heroes and let him randomly wander through the map - like in BFME).
    Also, I don't like damage like 15-16/80-81, it's better to change it to 15-15 / 80-80 and so on ^^

    Just a question... why did you give the map a 5/5?
    Not that I'm trying to lower this map's rating, it's just a question ^^

    I could help you with terrain and leaks. :)
    Just send an unprotected map to me and I'll fix it for you. If you want.

    Well the terrain hasn't really changed much, but new heroes are always a good addition:)

    Boy-oh-boy! I wish I could do a complete review, but time is ticking. I'll start by saying there is a lot of room for improvements.

    Suggestions : - Increase distance between "Good" and "Evil" towers (strangely, the "Evil" towers seem to be the most disadvantaged)
    - Fix Boots of Travel bug (never works)
    - Fix Breath of Fire spell (Does damage properly,but you should not be able to target allies or self)
    - Add a REAL threat (boss) instead of all those sad little creatures in the middle of the of the map, I found the "One Ring" simply too easy to acquire.
    - The "Fire Shrine" and "Statue of *insert generic elf name here*" can easily be destroyed by the first person who picks a hero and just walks to the desired location (add some guard of some sort)
    - Terrain is mediocre (do something about that)
    - Most spells are standard W3 abilities with minor alterations (a little work here please)
    - More to add, but not time, plus I don't want to sound like I didn't enjoy the map.

    All-in-all, a moderator might have second thoughts on approving your map, but the models / skins, structures and LotR-ish aspect tells me to score you a 3/5 and vote for Approval! (There's so much that can be done,aaaargh! get cracking!)
