Once upon a time there was a huge country named "Zemenko". It was a country of wild vikings, witch wanted to take over all of Europe, but thanks to one viking witch nickname was "Bonehead The Barbarion", the vikings lost the war against German all because "Bonehead The Barbarion" was drinking tea at that time and eating a pease of pie when all of the vikings were fighting agaist the enemy and when the vikings were defeated, "Bonehead The Barbarion" had choked up bacause hi didn't washed down that pease of pie with tea and in 2.12 minutes, hi died.
Ironicall isn't it =)
An Ai friendly map,lots of fun to play in any way one chooses to.
First of, i have to say that most map makers are so engrossed in designing that they often tend to overlook things like Ai capability and proper function. But that wasn't the case here. Excellent playability. All leveled terrain here so certain Ais like the Snake and Nizar can work properly. There is a high chance that Nizar's slaves won't be able to cover the castle with moat successfully as the keeps are alligned in such a way. But it depends upon the choice of Ai . Playability-5
Balance; Placing stone and parts of iron behing each keep made it easier to defend and gain much gold even if much of the farms and quarries infront of the castle was destroyed by melee troops. Moreover, the initial stage of placing farms was greatly threatened by the presense of large number of lions. It took me by a complete surprise. This further raise to the question; "Defense or Denial". Balance is a 4
Design of the map was good. Oasis grass arched to the corners made a little room for ais to make farms.A large map with 8 players sometimes restricts the use of rivers and elevation. The oasis looks good but the presense of Stone and iron deposits around the it made it look less natural. Design-4
SHH has many maps that look similar. The story didn't have much length and had many spelling errors. The author could have used a simple word application to rectify the errors. Mediocre is a strong word so i'll say creativity and story was average.
A vast improvement on map making made. I do hope the author will make many map like this.Quote- " Imagination is the only place one can get places he or she desires." A good map doesn't necessarily have to be desert type but island maps, Highlands etc. lots of luck for your future maps.
