Can someone please rate it :P
dethrone666 wow! the minimap looks great!! the centre looks like an alien's brain !

Yasko Playability: 2
This was great for your first map. You made it clear this is a multiplayer map, so I'm rating as such. I played against one other opponent across the map. This map has great multiplayer potential and would be suited well for experienced players. There is a few easily corrected problems with terrain and resource balance.....

Balance: 2
First off, the iron near each keep is crucial. It provides trading money early in the game to set up your empire. Problem is, there's varying amounts for each keep. One keep could place a max of 12 mines and another could only fit 7. Try balancing the amounts better. You can place mines efficiently and adjust iron as necessary in the editor to get a perfect balance. Secondly, the narrow tendrils of land, narrow cliffs, and tiny accesses to the keeps "bottle-neck" so much that your keep can be defended to the point of invulnrability. expanding the land that connects the keeps to the middle and increasing the accesses can help. Lastly, there doesn't seem to be enough stone in the middle. Puting more will really give players a reason to get out there to mine and defend it. Just a few more trees in the middle could help too.

Creativity: 4
This map looks really cool. I wouldn't change a thing on the over-all layout.

Map Design: 3
The look of the terrain is well polished. Good job there. Again, just a few minor changes can make the game play outstanding. Also, I see a way someone could cheat on this map. Let me explain:

If your playing with a time limit, such as on gamespy, it isn't possible to create troops right away, and precisely placed buildings on the stone in the middle can prevent other players from mining that precious stone. This would give an unfair advantage, so before playing make it clear that this is not allowed.

Story/Instructions: 4
You gave a brief story and instructions, and that's all you need for crusader skirmish. A great story gets a 5!

Additional Comments:
Again, a cool map that has much potential. Experienced players that rush after the time limit would rule this map. The concept is good and I'd be glad to re-rate if changes are made.
