    I've been thinking about this, and i believe it's better for the people to think of what the heroes should be. So here we are.
    Create your own Hero!

    Now, before begining, you must keep in mind that you need your hero to have 4 main abilities.
    The hero is going to have 3 talent trees, like in wow.

    • Single Target/Shockwave/ Similar targeting ability (1 for each kind of tree)
    • Aura (1 for each kind of tree)
    • AOE (1 for each kind of tree)
    • Ultimate (1 for each kind of tree)
    The 3 first must have 7 levels of abilities.
    The Ultimate must have 4 levels.


    Heck, not only abilities are needed!

    You need to specify your hero's main attribute (ranging from Strength, Vitality, Agility, Intelligence and Psi) and include a Hero Buff Tree!
    Main Attribute will recieve +8 from level 1.

    The Buff Tree will be like a Talent Tree that will allow players to select Buffs for their hero.

    25 Points will be usable out of 35 total Upgrades, and 25 for all abilities.
    The player will able to pick 8 abilities, of 2/3 trees.
    Thus, the player will get 1 point per level for each tree, and 5 attributes to spend each level-up!

    We have decided that the heroes will be based in only 4 trees per race.

    Here are the Trees

    Code (Text):
    [COLOR=Purple]Zerg[/COLOR] Small units will have
    [COLOR=Lime]-MAIN- Mutation
    Speed[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=Lime]Massive[/COLOR]

    Big units will have
    [COLOR=Lime]-MAIN- Mutation
    Melee
    Ranged[/COLOR]
     
    Code (Text):
    [COLOR=Red]Terran[/COLOR] small units will have
    [COLOR=Lime]-Main- Arms
    Mutation
    Psionic[/COLOR]

    Big units will have
    [COLOR=Lime]-MAIN- Arms
    Massive
    Explosives[/COLOR]
     
    Code (Text):
    [COLOR=RoyalBlue]Protoss[/COLOR] small units will have
    [COLOR=Lime]-MAIN- Psionic
    Dark
    Light[/COLOR]

    Big units will have
    [COLOR=Lime]-Main- Psionic
    Protection
    Assault[/COLOR]

     
    Try to include lore as well.

    I've searched the links but I can't find anything about the actual map concept...

    Could you maybe give us a quick rundown so we understand what theme our ideas have to suit?

    Good notice. I'll put one up soon :p


    Your heroes must be based out of existing units. Example, a Marine.

    I played your map Zergling frenzy. It's a nice footman wars like not like the boring survivals where you wait for some spawns to attack you on waves...

    Reaper

    Abilities:

    1) Jetpack Boost (Line AOE)
    Slide fast through enemy army causing damage while flying through them, each level dealing more damage (even killing units) and even longer path of travel per level
    2) Power shot - deals a massive amount to 1 unit causing explosion effect on it(Singe target), again more damage each level
    3) Speed Aura, increases by levels
    4) Ultimate - Ion cannon from above, dealing AOE dmg and big damage , a laser from above

    An Agility hero. I dont understand the buff, just throwing ideas.

    High Priest (based on High Templar model)

    1) Spirits of Aiur - single-target - summons a spirit of fallen Zealot, who charges the target, dealing damage and disappears. If target dies while some spirits still remain, they'll pick another target randomly. Further ranks increase number of spirits sumoned.
    2) Grace of Khala - aura - increases energy regeneration of nearby friendly units, based on number of those units. Further ranks increase maximum number of units who can contribute to the regene bonus.
    3) Maelstrom - AoE - creates a gravity vortex (basically that of Mothership; also slowly drags faraway units to it) and blasts all units caught within with a psi-storm when the vortex ends. Further ranks increase damage and radius.
    4) Scion of Twilight - ultimate - the High Priest temporarily transforms into indestructible and invulnerable Twilight Archon, who deals tremendous damage, ignores armor and his attacks also hit nearby enemies. After the spell ends, the High Priest transforms back into Protoss, with just 1 hp, 0 energy, 0 shields. Further ranks increase duration.


    Mystic (based on Dark Templar model, with dual scythe)

    1) Sands of Shakuras - shockwave - a wave of sand an shadows washes over enemies, moderately amaging them and leaving them blinded (aka stunned). Further ranks increase area of effect and stun duration (not damage)
    2) Shadows of Exile - active aura (can be turned on/off; drains energy per second) - all nearby units (except the Mystic) are Cloaked. Further ranks increase range and reduce energy drain
    3) Relic of Xel'Naga - AoE - creates an immobile ward that damages and knocks back nerby Zerg. Further ranks increase range and duration. (Uses one of those black-green xel'naga doodad models)
    4) Ways of the Void - ultimate - launches a dark construct (using Stalker's model) in target direction. The construct moves for 5 seconds and then teleports to a random point of the map, as far as possible from player's base. Also teleports all nearby enemy units. The construct is invulnerable, but rather slow, so he can be dodged. Further ranks reduce cooldown and increase construct's speed.

    Enjoy.

    PS: both are "intelligence" heroes.



    EDIT:

    High Priest Talents:


    Warp Focus - reduces energy cost of spells
    Phase Disruption - increases damage
    Wisdom of the Templar - increases intelligence
    Legacy of Aiur - increases amount of mana
    Bliss of Khala - spells have a chance to return mana. chance is based on amount of people affected by Grace of Khala


    Mystic Talents:

    Cold is the Void - Mystics attacks now slow enemies (some kind of chill effect would suit well)
    Shadows of Shakuras - Shadows of Exile now Cloaks the mystic too, but drains twice that much mana
    Legacy of Xel'Naga - spells cause the Mystic to regain some energy and health over 5 seconds
    Eclipse - spells and attacks have a low chance to instantly kill their targets
    Warp Ripple - when Mystic's health in combat drops below 25% he instantly slows nearby enemies and blinks in random direction (but away from enemies - he won't blink into an enemy mob). cannot happen more often than once per minute.

    We plan to keep them in some kinds of trees. Not gonna make additional trees for every hero! All units of a kind will have similar trees. For example, both Reaper and Marine are going to have Mutation and Psionic. We aren't gonna add any more :(

    Some stuff are too imbalanced in your post. Try to make the 2nd sub Tree as well. Add Upgrades (buffs), and remember to give them 1 passive, 1 single target/shockwave, 1 Aoe and 1 ulti for each tree.
