Queen and Country - I

Author File Description
Jasper Tudor
File Details
Map Size: 300x300 (Medium)
Difficulty: Normal
Greetings, and thanks for checking out my latest map. As I beleive you can guess, this is the first part of my new campaign, called Queen and Country. I plan to create three parts in total.
I tend to write rather lengthy storylines, so long in fact, I won't post them here in the descriptions place to save some room. The story, as well as my own notes etc, can be found in the .zip-file.

Happy gaming.

The map is very nice to play. I like to play it several times and had a great time doing it. There is a very good scripting in the map, but it al works very nice.I just would have added some more units but no reason for bringing the score down. So it is a 5 fore me Jasper

Balance: 5

I played your map on easy hard normal and very hard and i beat it on very hard at my second attempt. The reapiting invasions at the beginning (mainly on very hard are very annoying, but it keeps you busy till you have rebuild the castle and startet weapon production.
the invasions and events are almost perfectly balanced but i would have stopt the spearmen attack and would have used some heavier units to keep the player more buisse. And the last invasion(s) may come a bit later maybe 6 month or so but well –no reason to lower the score- very high quality =) 5

Well i dont really now what to say here. Just can say that the scripting is nice and the “idea” is new to me too. So i give you a 5 here.

I really liked this. You did nice work with both castles and i liked the ruined one even more than the other one. You have many place to build up your food production . really sweet lake in the middle of the map. And the stone is near to the castle too so i could built up a nice fortress =) it seems ypur maps are improving every time =)

Story/Instructions: 5

The story is very long and has some deatails/ backgroundinformation i liked to read it and it made clear what to do. It was a nice start of a story for the campaign =)

Quite a playable map, but it gets very repetitive after a while. I had a lot of fun "booming" my economy to get to be able to attack. (Then I found 400 swordsmen on my doorstep... eek!)

Balance: 5
A very well balanced map. The booming economy was perfectly in line with the "time limit". Also, I had to "plan out" my attack as there are not too many soldiers.

Creativity: 4
I loved those castles, one in ruins, one "perfect".

I also liked the "custom" crenellations, with raised pieces of land. By the way, you did a good job with the lake.

Map Design: 5
The landscape looked natural. Nothing more could be said. The streams and connected lakes were very good. The ruined castle the human player starts with also looks very realistic.

Story/Instructions: 4
There was quite a bit of story, but I don't give 5 here until it is VERY good.

Additional Comments:

Overall, a good map.
