as always if there's nothing else said, i've played as an defender and attacker. as An defender i played few times with different strategy on normal but i could not win the map, enemy owned me everytime there were just too many knights and pikemen to hold with just archers only 6 crossbowmen if i remember right, not really playable when you lose for sure.. with attacker i played on very hard lost only 16& of my troops and killed the king *PAM!* it was that easy not really playable when you win right away.
this was the worst balanced map ive played not even hope to win as defender, and win for sure as an attacker, i don't know that i should more than one point here... as u said "Painfuly honestly"
not really creative map, there are many maps like this, like my first ones there is nothing special or unique at all just wanted to give somepoints here for somereason.
Map Design: 3
The river was there and some woods, not bushes, rocks or stone at all...
a little story not too bad but nothing special, but i give you 3 becouse it wasn't too long i readed it all and wasn't that disappointed
keep practicing! this map could have been alot better with more time spent on it
