Your Lord has sent you, with all of his confidence, to conquer, with the help of some of his closest comrads, a land rich in ressources, where he will be able to expand his empire.
You have clear orders, to destroy any opposing forces, until no resistance is left from all whom opposes you. It won't be a pretty sight, given the fact open terrain, where everything is vunerable, and death counts will be high. This will surely be a nightmare for the weak, and the squeamish
Will you be able to carry on this ruthless task?
I suggest that you play this map with FIRE ALLOWED, which really spices up the game, because all of the buildings at the center are very close, which brings more drama at the game.
If I could give this a 4.5 I would. Its a great map with plenty of playability. Maybe a little too much, because the fight over resources in the center sets a fast pace. You must keep the center patrolled to keep anything of value from being destroyed. Hence the name Endless Nightmares.
This is hard to quantify here because its a eight player map, and those are hard to test fully. I have only played one eight player game with all eight human players showing up and not quitting. The lag was so bad that we stopped early. But if you played 8 human players on this map at one time, they would find the resources quite scarce indeed! But that is why the map is called Endless Nightmares, there are a lot of headaches getting resources.
Dark Knight keeps kicking out the good maps and getting it done! He is capable of putting together a basic idea (resource fight) and keep it 8 player, and get a well rounded map. I like it, but I have liked other maps of his more, hence the 4 rating. But, this is another rating I would give a 4.5 if I could.
Map Design: 5
My orignal thought on map design was a 4. But since I stated above that I wanted to give 4.5's on some others, I gave you a 5 here. Keep up the quality work and orignal ideas.
8 player maps are hard to think up good stories for becuase of the variety of play that can happen on the map. This is especially true if you are playing with just one human and computer opps. But because of the quality of work here, I gave story a 5 even though it wasnt a Pulitzer.
Dark Knight keeps the creativity up without sacrificing quality. Download and play this good map for all kinds of fights.
