Date:June 11th, 1144
You are Commander Longshanks, your King Richard the Lion heart has ordered you to lead 3 transports to attack Saladin's Mediterranean wall, he has given you 200 troops, plus more reinforcements are coming within the year. So far your soldiers face against a sea of towers with artillery and archers.
Hints & Tips, There are 3 heavily defended heavy artillery placed near on the beach, it is in range to destroy your transport which will soon deliver reinforcements. If the heavy artillery destroys that transport, your reinforcements will drown, so destroy those heavy artillery.
The towers and heavy artillery is on a hill which is heavily defended by light artillery and archers. But according to the our ships recon reports, there is a narrow passage north west of the beach head. They also tell us it will lead to the bunker that holds the regional commander of the arabs, Akmet Rahim, kill his guards and then finish him! Becareful though, he is also defended with 4 longrange arrow launchers.
P.s. This is my second map, I didn't spend too much time on it, please enjoy, and yes I know I said June 11th instead of June 6th, the accurate date of the invasion, but since my birthday, June 11th, is fairly close to the actually date, I used my birthday instead.
Please enjoy and tell me how I did, because my first map is still under the confirmation process at the time I am typing this so I don't know how you guys are going to react.
Okay this map is very hard. The reinforcements after a while seem to dry and the enemy has those mangonels ready to kill you on the spot you put foot on the land. This one is really not recommended for beginners or those that don't know how to strategies.
The Balance seems pretty good from my point of view. He only has three types of units. Engineers, Archer's(Around 100 on the mountain, around 15 in the keep) and Pike man (About 20 in the keep) and this is a great advantage considering he has about 15 Towers with barely any troops in them.
This thing remind me of Omaha Beach from Medal Of Honor. You got Killing pits on the shore(Mines) and mangonels on the towers.(Reminds me of those big flak-like guns in the bunkers) Too bad we didn't had those X thingies to cover the archers.
Map Design: 3.5
Well you didn't put too much effort in it but it's still pretty decent enough.
I forgot my history from the start of summer vacation but I think this was correct and thanks for the tip (Although the heavy artillery has a prob.)
