Wow. This is a map that gets to the point fast, were you have alot of space to build, but you cannot take them all for granted. Bloody battles rages at the center, where you can use the two mountains as an advantage. Great work!
Team wise, it is very balanced. Good work.
Its always a good idea to build maps where battles develloppe close to your farms and iron/stone mines, so that you are forced to participate in it, and makes it that more fun. The AI responds very well in this map.

Work on it alot more. To me, it seemed that it was your first 'draft' of your map. work on the drass, where it wont always be oasis grass, and graddually make it dissolve into dirt, or earth. Dont forget. its a dessert. So add cactuses, and few tree in the dirt. Check out the other map in the download page, and see what they did.
No such story here, but very few instructions. But you put a picture. So it helped abit.
Playability-wise, this is a very cool map, lots of bloody battles.
Map design-wise, work more on the landscaping. You can find pages written by members on this site bout that, or ask questions in the forums.
