The Arena

Author File Description
Lord Black
File Details
Map Size: 400x400 (Large)
Number of Players: 8
Balance: Balanced
Difficulty: Normal
Minimap:
The Arena is a large eight player map much like Border Patrol. Each player's castle is surrounded by natural walls which lead to an easy-to-defend entrance on the edge of the oasis in the middle. Each area has access to large amounts of stone, iron, and pitch with which to build your castle. There is also some oasis space and trees within the vicinity, but most of it is in the center. This is my first time to submit a map, so please tell me what you think!

Plays well, no glitches, but one thing bothers me, is that you can shoot arrows with some archers or with horse archers, right across the plains, so your archer is protected, but their archers are vunerable ( you can see them, but they cant see you). I can see that this can become a major problem if played over the internet, through Gamespy by example, and some players will over-use this.

Well balanced, good work.

Its a good idea, true, which is based on the map 'border Patrol'.

Map Design: 4
Good map design, and good work on the landscape. Nice work.

Story/Instructions: 3
a short description of the map, with a picture to accompany it.

Additional Comments:
Good work. I found that the beginning of my match was somewhat boring, or dull, but quickly started getting more and more fun. Hope you make more maps.

very good all round here, like pat said about the archers, but i guess in real life there would of probably been some archers behind a sort of cliff shooting at their enemy and using it to their advartages.

Balance: 5
very unique and balanecd with the resources, i like to 2 vs 2 vs 2 vs 2 so for example you may have yourself in very top and your ally at the very bottom and basically oppisite off which can really make lots of fun in multi.

Creativity: 5
fairly unique and it gives every one even chances, nothing really very, very good but every thing very good

Map Design: 5
like i said unique and it gives players that same advartgage and using high plains to serperate players is good.

Story/Instructions: 5
good story for skirmishes

Additional Comments:
