MELEE MADNESS

Welcome to a ridiculous land that makes no sense whatsoever - welcome to Melee Madness!

-----------------------------------------------

Here's a multiplayer only map I hope you'll find fun, and a little different too.

Both keeps are placed on spiral mounds with only 2 narrow entries and 3 towers for protection. As the name implies, no ranged units can be produced or bought; only melee units can. That doesn't mean you can't get archers though, there's a bunch of them trapped in walled forts at the corners of the map. You'll just have to fill in some moats, break down some walls, and battle ferocious lions to get them! Both players are also provided a protected (but not indestructible) cathedral and church.

There's a lot of ways to get the advantage, some of which include freeing archers, destroying enemy churches (since they can't be rebuilt), and loosing lions on the villagers!

To make this map fair I've disabled a lot of things including all walls, towers, pitchditch, and moats.

I don't have the means to test this map right now, and I'm wondering if some of the obstacles are too hard. Please playtest and let me know what you think. Any suggestions and comments are welcome.

Enjoy!

Lord Gandor 4 creativity?!

And you're not sposed to use AI, just other people who would understand it.
Lord Karpathea A message to schondark: Just because their aren't ranged units doesn't mean this is not a good map. If you're incapable of winning without crossbowmen, fine, but don't bring down the rating on a map because of a whim. And, if his design was good, why did you give him a three? Three means: Average, with room for improvment. A "C" grade. Your comment does not reflect your rating.

Looks like some people don't like reading instructions before rating. So, please take note of these words and phrases from the instructions above:

Name: "MELEE" Madness.

"Multiplayer only map"

"No ranged units can be produced or bought"

"Only melee units can be produced or bought"

Hope this makes it clear. I'll make a story for this if you like, but being a completely unrealistic map, look for a completely unrealistic story. I think I'll name it, "Battle in the Walmart parking lot". heh.

Enjoy,

Lord Gandor Yes...Wal-Mart...excellent.
Schlondark well, the file doesn't work anymore...
Schlondark crossbowmen are much easier to seige with, so this mission in multiplayer takes at least 15 mor years.
Lord Karpathea YES!!! WAL-MART!!! WAL-MART!!! HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA!!!!!!

Sorry for the few and inbetween replies, I'm pretty busy, and reduced to something of a stronghold weekend warrior...

Anyway, my intent on this experimental map was to make something intriguing, strategically challenging, and different. Put simply, just for the fun of it (I doubt this map will get many downloads anyways - it doesn't have the aesthetics of a natural looking map). So Schlondark, feel free to change anything you like - kick it with some crossbows! My only request is that you name the file something completely different than the original so there's no confusion when others play the unmodified file multiplayer.

If anyone needs help with changing the unit restrictions, just email me. My thanks to Brave Sir Robin for first showing me how to do it.

-Enjoy



surajsubba Think this map's cool anyway. i tried this map with a couple of my friends, they got bamboozled. Crying out as they couldn't make Crossbowmen. well i used a lotta fire ballistas and knocked them out. But eventually i lost :(
