This map was incredibly easy. The overall balance brought down playability. Replay value: 0.
I didn't need to train any more troops, on Very Hard, no less! I just took my archers and put them on the wall closet to the enemy keep and dusted them all off. Oh, and by the way, I defeated my enemy by 1021, but still had to wait all the time until F****** 1045!!!! That is horrible. This is a generous 2.
No thought went into this map at all. Nada. Zip. Zilch. Negatory. Nein, mein Herr. But because this is only your second map, I'll give an A for effort.

I am not usually like this, but this was bad, real bad. How about some cliffs, waterfalls, caves, etc.? This was a flat, featurless map minus a forest(which, by the way, dies out completly in the first few years).
Practically no story, barely any instructions.
Additional Comments: Needs work. Maybe put more troops around the Rat's fort, or make the invasions larger, play around with the land a bit also. For what year you win in, I would suggest setting the Win condition in 1945, but also one that says if you drive away the invasions and kill all enemies on the map, then you win. Has potential, but needs work.
