    I am a maper, meaning I spend alot of time making maps, weather it be PVP, COOP, or Campaign etc.
    After plaing some things I made onine, I realised that generally the same types of ppl played them, so... What is it that you feel should be in the ultimate map?

    Most likelly other people would view suggestions and get ideas, so by answering you may just get he sort of map you really want to play, or maybe a few from different artists.

    And try to be pretty specific, so instead of saying "Make the enemies very strong" maybe say something like "Make the enemies have alot of Health".

    Edit- And Thank you to every who votes

    These are what i like

    *Combining Items to make better ones
    *Battle System
    *Quite a Big map
    *Real Life
    *Not to stupid like every 10 seconds u gotta eat like some maps
    *Maybe teamwork to Do somthing?
    *Challenge
    *Not somthing that u cud complete in minutes
    *QUESTS!
    *Cookies
    *maybe like a transformation thing
    *Somthing new not original just somthing different
    *Game everyone can play. (even New begginers)
    *Some sort of a balance so if you are new newbs that are like Level 99 dont go round killin people lower level then them to ruin it maybe like you can only fight people within 3 of your level?
    *PETS PETS PETS PETS PETS
    *maybe a pet simulator like It eats Grows needs water you gotta walk it or it will get fat, it can attack.


    Thats all i cant think of for now

    People say they want original maps, with good ideas, but really, they want yet another tower defence, or the next version of DoTA.
    From what I've seen.

    Depressing isn't it? :(

    -great landscape
    -alot of bosses with geat reward
    -easy mobs in a big group with low exp rate (lol)
    -no team work (that will have kill steals, looters, etc)
    -alooot of items :D
    -maybe some houses that u can enter
    -no loading screen (that will make it harder to load)
    -blance heroes with alot of custom spells
    -try not to rig the map
    -alot of quests
    -with npc talking
    -a good story line
