My friends and I play Stronghold about once a week. We always play this map. What more can be said?
I think it's more balanced than this map was with 8 players. I also prefer the keep you have to capture not being on a hill that's choked off on each side, as is the case with the stock KotH map. The flanks that have occurred in our battles are pretty awesome.
It's not incredibly original and doesn't have any eye candy nonsense thrown in, but that sort of stuff is totally unnecessary for this map. I had to rate it low here, but really you shouldn't be judging this map on it's creativity.
Map Design: 5
A player in each corner, keep in the center. It's very balanced and fun to play. It's a stock Stronghold map changed for KotH play, and it's perfect for it.
Just capture the keep already!
This is an excellent 4-player map, and the best KotH map I've played. Your main keep isn't safe and the battles for the center keep are always epic. Check it out!
