INTRODUCTION

Winter Wars is an Altered Melee map where you build bases and defend them.

GAMEPLAY

This map is like Island Wars, but has a much more different style of early gameplay, for this time you can position the base

anywhere on the map and also your spawn point.

The winning style is like the Battlefield style of gameplay but this game uses encampments, not flags. You can buy units at

the edge of the map, and to earn money for you to buy units you need to build Oil Refineries using Engineers.

There are many techniques to attack and defend in the game, you can mix several types of units for the attack to be

effective, and you can also counter expected attacks with right counter-units.

EARLY GAME TIPS

Early
[​IMG]


You start by positioning your Capital, the more capital you have from the enemy he will lose points, then position your spawn

point, you will have access to buy your units at the bottom edge of the map.

You will win the game when the enemy has lose all his capital or his points reach zero.

    I suggest you improve your description, properly put your screenshots in hidden tags like this:
    Hidden

    Hidden

    Either way it still looks good.

    I recommend you using custom buuilding models, original Warcraft 3 look weird in Modern Warfare theme.

    Great. You should possibly even edit the desciption now and add the changelog without updating.
    Also, you could put all scrrenshot in one hidden tag, you can also leave some comment before the screenshots if you want to describe it.

    And don't forget to Enter after each screenshot so they wouldn't clutter but would go one after another...

    map looks amazing, testing now :D

    OK, here is what i got :):

    Stuff i didnt like or bad:
    - game started, i really got lost, i thought it was the top right corner for the attacker -_- (not a big deal)
    - units like air-strike and Blue Falcon, after they use their special move, then what? :S they use food and i don't get it again? :S
    - I got little bit lost in the units, i thought i had to train them in my own buildings (again not a big deal :D)
    - sad the oil thingies take food and doesn't give enough gold that "I" need :p (not a big deal)

    Stuff that i loved/liked:
    - the custom units
    - the great idea
    - the terrain :D
    - how can it be competitive
    - the ships :p
    - units tool-tips = helps a lot
    - i guess everything els? :p

    Suggestions:
    - more amazing units
    - add some more special units ;)
    - more buildings :p (defensive and other stuff like that)
    - how about a building that can teleport you, like a tunnel or something but make it little bit expensive
    - How about air troops, like a transport airplane or something like that, it passes the location and drops like lets say 3-5 units, not strong ones just weaklings :)
    - how about upgrading the oil thingy :) or make another big one that costs a lot :D
    - a reinforcement call, just to help out if one of the teams are really getting owned hard
    - some in-game tips in the quest menue :D (not so important)

    thats all i got, great map
    rate: 4/5
    Vote: Approved
    Rep: 1+

    Please dont stop working on it, i really liked it :D

    This map is hilarious for World War III. Usage of buildings is primitive, too small map, undescribed factions and is not world scale. No middle-easterns, no communists, no americans, no germans, no bolivians.

    sorry, but i had to comment back
    so you can read the future? :vw_wtf:

    The Future World War, you never know what will be left, America or Germany or even Russia. Maybe it all got destroyed and only this peice of land is left, didn't you thought about that? Names doesn't mean it have to be that way.....i could say hero arena, so i couldn't make the environment in a city with people walking around ? Anyways the map is great :vw_unimpressed:

    I'm just saying you know....... :vw_unimpressed:

    A quick comment for you guys, again thanks for your comments and i am glad that you guys liked the map

    @Magnet199 Thanks for your review and suggestions! Actually you can re-arm the weapons of the air units in the Weapons Cache, which can be built by an engineer. And i will put many things in the map such as General Ranks where if your performance is good you will be promoted and can call reinforcements, nuke strikes, etc...

    @Animalpower I called the game "World War III" because it was supposed to be a scenario where the Cold War has become a large war between the Allies and the Soviets and the player along with his teammates are assigned to secure the island that has enormous amount of oil.

    And if i will put a plot the teams will be renamed as "Allied Attackers" and "Soviet Defenders" and the ability to choose a nation. Meaning there will be a lot of changes on the next update
