This is an excellent map. I've played a couple games on b.net but it still befuddles me. It's incredibly wonderful and complex. Sure, it's still in need of balance, but there are approved maps that are MUCH more imbalanced than this. (See Battledome ]|[, for instance.)

If you like melee this map will blow your mind, and even if you don't I guarantee it'll entertain you. The techtree is immense and navigating it takes about an hour. The map is huge and very visually pleasing. The action of making and breaking alliances keeps the game exciting. If I had any say in it, I'd have Blizzard replace their ladder games with Abyssium.

It's not a year yet, so why don't you go learn to count and give us a break?

Why insult us when you can instead play the map and give some feedback? I personally am not going to review this map because of reasons I'd prefer not to go into here, but there's nothing stopping you beyond the fact that you wouldn't be able to be a sarcastic little fuck if you did so.

11 months is still huge.

Sorry if you felt personnally insulted, I was only pointing it out for the heck of it. Besides, I don't particularly care for map approvals anymore.

And I DID play the map, and I gave a little feedback. But even if I did review it, it wouldn't mean anything.

And yes I will edit my post so it sounds less like an asshole comment.

But it wasn't an asshole comment, it's just that map reviewers have lives and I'm guessing they sometimes wish they didn't choose this job so that they won't have to play maps and approve them.

About the map:
Interesting concept of melee, terrain above average (perfect for games for those with various computer speeds and qualities... you'll need to find a really bad PC to lag on this), feels a lot like all those 'Village Builder', etc maps that often appear on epicwar.com (kinda ironic about the name) but just a higher quality one, my feeling is that buildings were too big - I built up in the forest to the west of the center and struggled finding a place to build my main building, and all my other buildings.

Nevertheless a good map, much better than many of the maps in the database.

Maybe we should just get more map reviewers? I'm not saying we should have an army, which will just degrade the performance. I'm saying just enough to get maps tested. Because testing maps is time consuming if you want a thorough analysis of the map. Maybe 1-3 hours depending on the map. And there are a lot of map submissions here.

OR!

Maybe a public voting system. If a map gets this many ratings at this many votes then its a pass.

Just my two cents.

This map has been tested. Several times.

And we'll never have a voting system.

Without being strained to read 6 pages of text, what exactly is holding this one back? Were there specific issues with it, or did it just not get enough approvals, or what? I'd be more than happy to give it a try over the weekend and see if I can't give some good, solid feedback and approval/disapproval for it.

It's time action be taken on this map. It's been in queue for well over a year now, and from the looks of it it's ready.

Dusk, I'll play this with you if we can arrange a time. I don't know when I'll be free, but I'll try.

Actually, this map is pretty awesome.
The only con I have is that there's this valley in mid-right with 8 gold mines. Someone started there early on and undoubtedly won in the end due to a huge excess of gold. Being at low ground isn't a problem when you have so much excess gold to meander around with.

It's a really good map, though, and I think that it's good enough to be in the database. What do you all think?

Abyssium is a very good map. It has a good feel, and that is very hard to get, and can really make or break a map. It's almost certainly the best altered melee I have seen. It's taken a while (we are always cautious about letting maps in), but here it is.

Approved

Yeah, let's move this onward. All of my previous comments apply, it definitely is good enough to be in the database.

Welcome to the database (even if it did take over a year for us to decide)!
