What Can I say? All the AI lords can play on it, there's no problems with resources... it's fun, too.

Balance: 4
OK, while there weren't any glaring differences in balance, I did notice that a couple places had a bit more Stone/Iron than others. No, I didn't count the tiles; I merely was able to place more quarries/mines in some places than others. But it isn't by a lot.

Creativity: 4
I can't say I've ever seen a map designed quite this way before. I'm a little hesitant to give a 5 on this, however, simply because it's all on the lowest terrain height.

Map Design: 4
This map has no outstanding design flaws, and while I'll never see this river feature in real life, it looks... natural.

EDIT: I forgot to mention that you are just a tad too generous with the Iron; you may want to cut it down in future maps.

Story/Instructions: 3
No story, but there is a description of how difficult the map can be. Really, I don't see much point in a story for Skirmish, though it is fun to read, so I give it a middle-of-the-road 3.

Additional Comments:
I like this map. I'm never satisfied for long with what Firefly gave me; this kind of map is what I look for. Keep mapping; you have talent and potential.

Fantastic! Playability is the most important to me. Great castle biuld spaces provided. All ai's function absolutely flawlessly. Marvelous! i must say at first i thought that there were some route to reach the other side thru the sea/lake. There were none. The only passage seemed to be the south route. So i placed myself to the south-west. I tell you it was a really hard game. All the enemy troops had to pass my castle to reach the other side. Fun map.

Balance: 4
Great balance. Placing most resoures to the rear of the castle made the game easier (to defend the resources).I must agree with the first review that u were a little too generous on both ston and iron.Six keeps placed to battle it out. It's a good multiplayer map too.

Creativity: 5
A great thought put in a map. The lake was absolutely beautiful. Rocky but beautiful. i've never seen a map that had a lake like that.

Map Design: 5
U, my friend are a great mapmaker. The map was very detailed. I love it. The oasis grass design was fantastic. Sorta what i like to see in maps.

Story/Instructions: 4
You didn't provide any. But i just hate to see a great map recieve a low review just becoz of that. If u put a story i'll edit this part of the review

Additional Comments:

absloutly fab... no problems... all ais can build here which i love!

Balance: 4
here i would of given a 4.5 but its great in all asscepts but you missed out on that extra 0.5 because some areas had more of certain resources.

Creativity: 4
Very classic for teams to be facing each other on the either side of a river and the river is so superb looking that if you had given another eye cathy feature then you would get a 5 of me.

Map Design: 4
very good and a very tight battle in the area where the two enemies meat that is if you play 3on3 and its not super super great so no 5 there.

Story/Instructions: 2
i know its hard to make stories for skirmishes but either way maybe a little story would have got you better marks and reason for the 2 is because you wrote more then one line.

This map is perticular is the nicest river-in-the-middle map i have ever seem,looks like this could be a great fight to do with wolf and saladin.

Balance: 4.5
Quite nice balance here except for the stone & iron deposits being larger on the right side.

Creativity: 4.5
not that many people take much time into the rivers and the oasis around it, good job.

Map Design: 5
Things are very tidy here and I can tell just by even looking at the minimap that you didn't only use the widest brush

Story/Instructions: 2.5
This map could do with a story of sorts but I won't be picky about that.Very Good job overall
