TheDirk0 Great map,with a very unique idea.

However,there are three major issues.

First, the ini file has a duplicate in the gothmog
stance template,which can cause the game to crash.
Simply put ModuleTag_Stances_New to fix it

Second, Treebeard's mushroom power has the custom hero heal glitch.You should use athelas instead.

Third,the Witch-King's graveyard guard recharges to fast.

Thats all!

p.s. I love the COW!!!

Thanks for your hints!
I didn't know this Gothmog problem, i will fix that if i make a version2. (Not sure yet if it's worth being made).
Treebeard will also be fixed than.
Is wk the only balance issue or are there also other problems?

Btw the cow is also my favorit hero :D.

PS: Could you make a review for me? Just for attracting more people :p.

Playability: 4.5
Extremely enjoyable with endless replay value.
It has a few issues,thus the -5, but is still fun.

Balance: 3
The map has some balance issues which I have detailed the in additional comments section

Creativity: 5
This map is completely unique!! There is no other map that has the same idea structure.

Map Design: 4.5
The map has reasonable textures,and the layout fits the purpose.There are also a few unit reskins that make interesting.

Story/Instructions: 4
The map has all required instructions and a few hints.It needs visible respawn timers for the heroes.

Additional Comments: Despite the balance issues the map is worth the download,if only because of the originality and creativity.
Here are the balance issues and some solutions.Treebeard can use the heal glitch.The Witch-King's level two power,Graveyard Guard, recharges far to quickly.The good faction needs a antihero archer to counter Lurtz.The evil faction need a large slow rock throwing hero to counter Treebeard.Shelob's scream is ineffective and should be replaced with a more useful power.Finally Rudy's farms need to generate more resources.Yes these are a lot of issues,but they really do not matter if you are just trying to have some fun,which is the purpose of the map.

Thanks for that review!
To the balancing stuff: I will try to get some fitting replace for Shelob, though she is even without that power very strong. Probably Lurtz is the biggest problem, a counter hero would be a solution maybe. Treebeards glitch is a problem indeed. A counter similary to him would be a nice idea.
To Rudy: I don't think his farms should generate more income, since he can build a nice number of them. And when Rudy has enough money to make lots of archers, the enemy gets in trouble.

But as you said, it's only a funmap :).
Jokuc Nice :P
