In a remote part of Italy, there is a castle built on a high rock. It is so small and pleasing to the eye, that locals only call it The Beautiful. However, there are some dark clouds moving over the country. Enemy is approaching the borders. The war is inevitable. Your father seemed to be too tired for these harsh times. He passed away only a few days before the anticipated attack, leaving you, his youngest son, the smallest part of his large possession – The Beautiful. You moved to your new home with despair. Tired of life, your only wish was to die. But than, somehow, the place started to change you. Outside the city, where you lived your whole life, surrounded by a complete wilderness, where days move slower and quiter, you finally managed to find peace, love and honest friends… Now, when the enemy wishes to take it from you all…
I Played this on defender and an attacker, i had great fun as an defender, first time i failed to beat the map, then i used the pitches more wisely to swordmen and moved the archers to gate when it was the right time, after all i couldn't win the map becouse there where too many attackers to kill, but it was fun the castle was little but fun.. then on other hand i played as a attacker, difficulty was very hard: 0& troops lost and 25000points, perfect round.. it was really unbalanced and easy becouse of the design of the castle it is too hard as an defender but too easy as an attacker there was the problem.
As i said the map is really unbalanced
Defender - too hard
Attacker - way TOO EASY
it could have been better with better playtesting alot better.
i think this map was kinda unique little castle looked great and the name was there right "The Beatiful" it was little and funny castle, it was fun to defend it even though it was too hard for me to win.
Map Design: 4
It was great after all, the cliffs, and forest area with swamp and the river, it just needed abit the finishing touches: more rocks, stones, bushes, grass, dirt... to look more realistic otherwise great job on the map outlook.
There is nice short story in the map, it is good and not too long to read cuz i dont like to read too long stories becouse i dont like reading in general, the more short the better, and it was good.
Keep up the good work and remember to visit the forums if u need help or wanna chat with other strongholders!
