Please post your thoughts on the ClanWars suitability of Lothlorien: Eryn Laer, specifically what you do and do not like about the map.

This is not a traditional balance suggestions thread, because most of your balance suggestions have no chance of resulting in changes to Lothlorien: Eryn Laer. Rather, they will help us refine the GameReplays Tournament Mappool, and could perhaps even affect the design of future maps, in the event that ClanWars remains active and interest in new maps remains high.

What we can change about Lothlorien: Eryn Laer, if and only if there is significant community interest/support for doing so, would be the types and locations of neutral structures and creep lairs.

Don't like this map that much, but don't see nothing wrong with it tbh, it's bearable

Worst map ever game play wise. One of the best maps looks wise (can compete with EA maps just like Old Forest can).

Things I hate:
- CAMPFEST. You can't expand properly anywhere but in the bases.
- The sides are virtually none existent and the middle is like a trench. Very strange.
- Lairs. They block everything that could be qualified as a flank. The one is the base is a nuisance too.

Things I like:
- Originality, though it failed :\

I'll admit that my mindset going into making this map was "screw balance, I'm making something PRETTY". laugh.gif It's still my favorite of all the maps I've made, though more for the aesthetic. I fully agree that it's pretty horrible to play on competitively.

It's become a somewhat popular and frequently played map over the past year+.
