Take more time with your maps, try to make more detail, i could make these maps in 3 minutes!!!
Quality IS better than quantity.
Look at maps with high ratings like heritage of kings or fear of the dark, and get ideas from them.
A good map takes at least 3 hours.(most of the time...)

3 hours!? I must be spending too long on my maps, though I spread my designing over several days it's still way over three hours. But A good map could still be made in 3 hours as long as you don't get stuck on little details.
Spend longer on your maps and download Surajsubba's maps, they are top notch.

suraj may be good, but for top notch maps, download ones made by sulis, war_lord designs, unikunok and Lord Ako. These guys (in my opinion) DEFINED this site.

3 HOURS!!!??? I don't think so. I spend way longer than three hours on my maps.

Passed this mission in three minutes. But the playability isn't the worst thing. I know that invasion maps are not usually designed perfectly ( the idea is more important here), but still the land is completely empty. That's the worst thing. I think you should take a better look at other maps and change these problems. You can create a very interesting design with the editor tools: add water, oasis grass, sand, rocks, hills trees. Try to mix them up, create your own interesting map design. Don't expect to do it very quickly and easily, ( Rome wasn't built in a day) try to spend more time on the map design and you will get a better result.
Good luck, hope to see that you are making progress in mapmaking.
