*Very Important!*I forgot to say, those who notice that their models are used in this map should contact me, cuz i just made the description and i dont know all the names.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Maybe you could explain a bit more...What do you think that he could fix?


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

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

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 ^^

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!)

After a small 2v2 game i found this map was
PROS
+Fun
+Models
+lots of creeps in the lanes
+lots of heroes and good spells
--------------------------
CONS
-Terrain
-not a ton of items
--------------------------
Something i think would be cool
If you added demi-creeps to the lanes like every 3 or 4 spawns a dunidain, troll, ent, mumak, eagle ect apeared in the lane on both sides
3.5/5

lord of khand dead and decay is really strong :/ and he tends to stuck everyone who fights against him at the woods.. with that tornado
the troll chieftain or that hero got an amazing durability with a a strong ultimate +160? or +150 damage with lifesteal included >_>...
the abysmal gap between the top and bot secrets shops..
everyhero tends to get some dam tanky (defense in this case) that only mages and tanks are useful since they got or lots of hp or spell nukes that ignore def. auto atacking someone is pretty much useless

You should create floating text which displays gold rewards when last hitting creeps :)

You could also improve beginner's experience by reducing backswing point times for ranged heros. I found last hitting to be very difficult for the first 5 minutes.

You should also remove critical strike chance from creeps. This chance causes wave to be pushed to the tower without any user control!

I will review again after you update these things, but for now I'll rate *** (map is playable, has some desirable features, much time has been put into it)

I just tried your map and I must admit that it's an interesting one even if I'm not fond of AoS maps!

One detail though, some models could be changed to better ones (you still have 0.6Mb to use ^^)! I have plenty of LOTR models, you can check some of them on my current project development thread.

And could you send me your Gandalf, Faramir, and Boromir models please? They could be usefull for my project!
