Three Kings

Author File Description
von Schmidt
File Details
Map Size: 300x300 (Medium)
Number of Players: 3
Balance: Unbalanced
Difficulty: Normal
Minimap:
This is my fifth map, it is a three player, with medium size. It's supposed to be played two vs. one, with the player the one, but you can play any way you want. A short story is included with the map. I have played it six times and have not experienced many problems, but the Snake, when in the top left-hand corner, seemed to start to build his castle slowly and didn't build gatehouses in the half-hour it took me too win. Richard the Lionhearted, in the same game as the Snake, took a tremendously long time to build much of his castle and didn't do well at all, but I forgot to allie him with the Snake. The Caliph, in another game, took a long time to build his castle and never really finished it. I terrorized him with knights once and finished him off later with assassins.

A few hints: Like in my other map, Green Lands, some pitch is hidden around trees. There is an ample supply of oasis, but your enemies might take yours if you aren't fast enough. Try and kill the lions quickly and order to get much-needed resources, and use horse-archers and knights to kill off enemies and protect your stone quarries and iron mines.

WolfLordLupus Played it for a bit, and I noticed unless the situation is Deathmatch, A.I. is rendered useless after about 15 minutes into the game against a human opponent. But other than that, not bad.

What do mean, rendered useless? If you mean they will never win, I guess you're right. The first one I did was against Wolf and Saladin, two of the best. I won in mabye an hour or less. But I had full advantage. Still, Wolf and Saladin can usually kill anyone no matter how much money they get...
monkcrazy5 Hmmmm...I actually find that each Ai has a weaknees, and that they are really not that hard. Now...if Firefly STudios was to come out with a new trail and 8 more opponents..............(fill in the blank)

Well, each ai does have a weakness, but I find that making a huge army of pikemen, swordsmen, crossbowmen, and catapults and trebuchets can conquer anyone easily.
Lord Karpathea Unless you're are fighting someone who has done the exact same thing.....usually another human.
monkcrazy5 GASP! How could you forget my massive amounts of horse archers!!!!
(200-450)

Well I do use horse-archers, but usually only against the Lionheart to get arid of his ballista.
Lord Karpathea Well......horse archers are fine.....but my army of pikemen (300-500) would wipe them out.
