    Blizzard:
    • Plunder Isles: it is was the first one upon which I based my map.
    • Friends: I can play next to Human computer enemy and have fun with him :cgrin:
    • that one with 5 players down and 5 up, because they are close to each other, maybe dalaran ruins.
    • I generally like games that has city-like terrains and doodads, and island-like doodads and terrain
    • and maps that has too close camps
    Custom:
    • my map no doubt:goblin_yeah:, although it has no terrain.
    • I got to check those you mentioned, I've never seen em before. especially the one with 12 players. It may fit my map, with alliances... wow:goblin_jawdrop:perfect integrity.
    • and small town I guess, although I did not try it, but camps are close.

    Blizzard:
    Islands- I used its terrain for my Water World Map, aside from that, its really an innovative maps.

    Custom:
    *Blood Raven Pack- extraodinary and he is able to create kick ass 12 player map.
    *Elemental War - melee map that was a very risky move when it comes to terraining, BR had to combine different tile set to create something new, sadly it got rejected, still got it on my hard drive though.
    *Ancient Haosis - :cgrin:
    *Rocky Land - its innovative, what else to say.

    Sonofjay, I want to ask 2 question:
    1) What's the best tileset for beginners to practice?
    2) What is the best map size for beginners?

    For beginners I suggest using the ashenvale or village tileset, also the best map size are 128x128 and 160x160 to beginners.

    I don't really have any favorite maps, they're all good, and that includes the custom maps here. But I do like altered melee maps more than simple melee maps.

    Battle For Outland(I wish there were more maps with a full elven techtree)
    Faction Wars(Awesome futuristic weaponry with plenty of references to classic and beloved games) Kudos Ken-E!
    EchoStorm(probably, it ain't out yet, but I'll probably play it and love it).

    My favorite blizzard melee maps are those where you have to chop down the trees before accessing to the enemy which are:

    - Adrenaline
    - Nighthaven

    Then, I love the map Friends because the teamwork appears very clearly in such a map.
