This is good first map i must say. There are only a few 8plyr maps submitted lately. At first glance, the terrain looks plain and unembellished. It's all level terrain. The map can really use some elevation.
I agree that it can be fraustrating at times when u can't gather enough resource at ur stockpile. I've experienced that a lot while playing unbalanced skirmish maps. But it gives u a real good challenge, a taste of difficult scenarios. On the other hand throwing off resources in abundance can make a map too easy. In this case the map has a lot of available farmlands. Stone, marsh and iron are clustered. I prefer meagerness over abundance. However this depends upon individual skill levels and preferences.
