I plan to update this topic 3 times over the next 3 days - week. Each day there will be a poll/question, and I would like everyone to answer it. After the final day concludes I will have decided, and reveal what Starcraft 2 map I will be working on.
<big>Day 1: What is your favorite Warcraft 3 map and why?</big>
Aproximate map size:
What you like:
Suggestions for improvement:
Feel free to expand on those in your post, but please give that basic information. Also if you want you can do more than one map.
Here is (one of) mine.
Name: Vampire Hunter's
Brief Description: There's 2 teams, light and dark. Dark fights in the outlying towns to gain strength, the Light fight to defend the keep in the middle of the map. Both sides can summon units to help them fight. Dark also has a Nexus where they go to buy things.
I like: I like the size, and theme. It's a simpler map than many, not as stressful as DotA, not as complicated as Werewolf. The small map size, and light theme make this a fun map.
I would improve: More interesting fighting/farming mechanics. The dark only kill villagers who don't even fight back for most of the game.
