EliteAce Playability: 5
PLayabilty was very nice. It was fun to play the masp mostly because of the choke points that you usaly had to fight to get through.
And, all the recources are placed relitizely close to the castle, so its easy to get supplies.

Its also fun to just build up a large ampount of arches and just have them wait and hold the choke point while you build up a large and creative castle.

Balance: 5
I thought that the balance was superb!
since the map was almost perfectly sysmeterical it was not harder or easyer for anyplayer to get more resourse than their oponets, which maent that everybodeys army is going to be relitivly similer sinc eeverybodt has alot of the same resources.

PLus, since there was realy only one main choke point, it was just as hard for each player to get to and attack thier enemies.

And since there was an equla amount of resources on the map, everybodey had acsees to the exact same type and amount of resources.

Creativity: 5
The creativity was superb.
I think that with all those resources avaliable to use, it was easy to create creative castles, which inturn meant (at least to me), that the map had some good creativity.
You could create a realy impressive castle on that map, and eventhough the castle wasnt on the map befor you played, it could still get on the ap, and i think that that could be comsidered as good map creativity.

The only drawback on the map was that it didnt have alot of eye-candy, but that didnt lessen the score very much.

Map Design: 4
The map design was allso very good
I like symetrical maps, and that is what this map is.
A very nice symetrical map.

The terrain on the map looks very nicly planed,
and fits in very well.
using some uneven terrain a bit more might make the map a bit more intresting. After all, it gives archers a vantige point.

Story/Instructions: 3
Your story could have been a bit better. try to use many discriptive words, and some metaphores. alo try to make the story longer.
I can imagen that its hard to make a story for a map that doesnt have any scripied events, so focus specificaly on what happend before the map. You started out that way, you just needed to make the story last longer.

Additional Comments:
Sorry, but don't have any.
