Venomrider Pretty well balanced map Animaal,the upper part of the map would be good for multiple players to fight in close quarters.Oh,the only worry i have is that the lower player in a comp war might not have the resources he needs to fight back against so many foes in such close proximity,the nap is very cool and plays well I might add.

"Oh,the only worry i have is that the lower player in a comp war might not have the resources he needs [..]"

Well, today I fought with lionhart (yellow), pig (grey), philip (blue), saladin (aqua), caliph (violet) and wolf (orange) all teamed against me, deathmatch, 7k for me, 20k for them. Didnt rush or cheat and was victorious. To manage army (I had 3 independent formations at the end) was more challanging then simple buy/sell type economy. ..27 men were lost during campaign, which also means I didnt need tonns of gold. oh, and I use european type units only. :)
Skill is the answer on your worry, not bunch of arabian forces :)

Venomrider Hey,you don't really think I always use arab units do you? because I have beaten both crusader trails without cheating and I found that most of the time arabians didn't cut it when it came to long battles.And only having a little oasis and nearly no stone at long distances away from your base is less on the fun and more on the luck of the attacks of the enemy.

Oh, cmon, crusader trails... I found it very easy to beat them without building a single tower. I prefer outmaneuver opponents. Fight from very start is much more fun, then sitting in deep defence and gathering stone or whatever.
If you like to run economy with ease, this map isnt for you ...or you can just edit it like you want. :)

You must not talk about or discuss the use of trainers. Please visit the forums where you will see stickied threads that refer to our position regarding these unnecessary aids.

Here is a little insight in maneuver warfare:
Mission 26.
First you create an army
http://h1.ripway.com/TheAnimaal/Crusader/26_1.JPG
Send your lord to snakes castle and leave him there with 5 good things. (Put max tax lol)
March to meet sultan. Force him to close the gates, treb the market till no wood available to rebuild it, then mercenery post and closest tower last; rush macemen and gain some 10k.

Reinforce your army, buy a lot of stone and start to press caliph hard.
http://h1.ripway.com/TheAnimaal/Crusader/26_3.JPG
Finish him.

Reinforce one more time and attack the last one from rear.

5th year is running and victory is so far. :)

Casualties – 1 crosbowman and 3 macemen. Popularity - 0.
Peasants available - 4.
Gold - ALL MINE!

There is much more to learn about rushing, then use of macemen or assasins alone. :)
