Oh I should say it is 2 player only...
Single play is not worth it.

Tons of events and scripts. plays like in a movie

Map Design: 5
Up until the last corner the map is filled with stuff, things to do.

Story/Instructions: 5
Story of course being the highlight here. No spoiler here, find out and play! ;)

Additional Comments:

Great fun to play this map! Lots of ideas and creativity that keeps drawing you into this map. If you think, you know the map, a new event appears that changes the whole story around!

Only played this map in Pbem for which it is perfectly suited!

Great map making Ian!

Not a single bug detected (so far;). Plays simply straight. Great idea to always inform each player about the progress of the other, this is an interesting addon to this map which was made as tournament map and from my point of view cleary exceeded most of the maps that finally won but that certainly depends on the expectations of the judges who clearly valued completley different criterias than certain mapmakers thought upfront.

Balance: 5
As far as I can tell from the ongoing pbem, it seems to be fairly balanced and I don´t think that any events automatically lead to unbalancing of a map and thus lead to (mis)advantages. As long as such events occur evenhanded on both sides (which seems to be the case here!) it´s fair enough and makes for a much more interesting gameplay.

Creativity: 5
great ideas, especially the many spawns in between of heroes, stacks etc... there is a clear logic behind it and when which stack is spawned depends on how you tackle the game. good job!

Map Design: 4
well - this certainly is not the masterpiece of the map. anyway, I´ll give it a 4 out of goodwill and because it´s actually a 3.5, so mathmatically a 4... ;)

Story/Instructions: 5
most of it has been described already in the comments above. Very well done!

Additional Comments:
For me, this should have been clearly one of the top5 tournament maps. I do certainly favor maps with some spices than boring ones. I can´t share the opinion that events can be the excuse for finally losing a game. This map shows clearly, that if they are being applied in a balanced way like in this map, it can work brilliant and spice up the game.

Just do not play it with the author - he knows it too well :)) There are many pathes, and chances are that your choices will be worse ;)

Thanks Oleg. I apoligse for knowing my work! ;)
Did you mean to post a 5 or 4.8? There is a mismatch on your scoring - but thanks anyway and Merry Christmas!
Keep up the ratings on all maps. You might join Rat Peddlar as the one to get a good (and fair) rating from...
Cheers
