The Wolf went West after being defeated in the King's
campaign.Spies sent to watch the Wolf report he has gathered
another army and is headed for Wolford on the West Coast.
Your and your semi-completed Stronghold is all that stands
between The Wolf and further conquest!Can you stop him?
Note;This map can be played from easy to very hard.I suggest
P.S.Please rate my maps,as this will help with future
Jippee!, finally a really good map again, after rating 6 mediocre to bad ones.
I played this map once at hard difficulty.
Playability : Just great fun, from the start till the very end! Something that makes this map REALLY fun is that it's the first one where mangonels work properly! It is SO much fun to watch six mangonels pounding the enemy's troops to shreds!!!!! Ok, I'm calm again. The only thing spoiling the fun a little bit was that it was too easy, even at hard level, I could build one formidable wall with a lot of large towers and without gates. The enemy never came through.
Balance : Overall a well balanced map, but too easy, this could be fixed by :
- making the invasions larger
- making the economy harder
Creativity : a good map, with a nice story and good scenario, something rare. Also this guy pulled it of to make mangonels good.
Map design : A very beatifull landscape, and nicely build starting castle. I also liked the way the map supported the story : The Wolf had landed by ship it said and had to go through you, in the map there was a large bay, with 4 signpost standing circular on the shore.
Story/ instructions, a nice and original story, and there was an in-game instruction : namely, the way your starting castle was build 'told' you very clearly the way to go.
A very good map, I would just advise to make it a bit harder.

Wow! What an awesome invasion! I love it the whole way through. I was kept on the edge of my seat the entire time - and wasn't able to relax until it was over. (Acutally my neck got a cramp, which was noticed when I tried to relaxed after winning.) I loved it! - Dianna
