    "Details-Details-Details!"...I have said it once, you've all heard it a thousand times : Improve the Description , add a screen-shot, do something more than just telling us you made it to test and idea you had, etc etc. You know the drill : Rules violation. Good luck!

    I checked out the units and buildings. Everything works correctly (from what I seen.) I think Gnolls could become a melee race very soon.

    I tried your map...

    It surprised me that there was indeed no water or something else but it looked like they were actually floating in the air.The terrain though is another matter; what's with the outland light dirt here and there?

    The race of gnolls has a minor problem ( one that I also noticed in Blizzard's Reign of Chaos Campaign (Chapter Six the Fall of Silrvermoon)): their heroes can be sold at any amount you want at tier 3.Anyway the map was very good and I'll give it a 4/5

    We're like Yin and Yang, you say negative, I say positive :p

    God, the file size is not so cute and cuddly like the terrain.
    Ok, calm down... This is an altered meele map, so the map's size makes the terrain 6/5 just because of the sky below your feet :D
    I almost vommited when flying with a Frost Wyrm.

    Description is simple, but complex.

    Ok, prob'ly played it a dozen times now, and I vomitted once. I vote for approval.

    Sexy 5/5

    Very (very) cool map, though I do have some suggestions.

    * The Geomancer summons an actual Rock Golem instead of the Elemental it mentions.
    * The Horrid Breath really doesn't look right, maybe you could use the Disease Cloud?
    * Why do the Gust Elementals have golem voices?
    * Could you put a line or two in the Quests explaining the Citadels?

    :infl_thumbs_up: Your Gnoll Map and Models are actually cool. Keep making models of gnolls or whatever. My first comment :p :ogre_datass:

    Oh well, those tornados are actually teleporters? That surprised me when the enemy attacked and my whole base got destroyed :/

    I loved that map, it is my favorite one since i installed WC3 on my laptop last year. Played as Gnolls.
    Oh yeah, the creator of the map needs to update that or else maybe someone on hive can adopt the map for good.

    Very good floating island/continent map with cool looking sky background and transparent outland abyss seeing the ground.

    Looks like everyone and i should make maps that show sky and flying island/continent themed maps then.
