Asguard [Updated v2]

Author File Description
File Details
Map Size: 300x300 (Medium)
Difficulty: Hard
Hey. My name is Steve, and this here is my first map which I've submitted! It's a normal siege mission, nothing too spectacular, just get the men to the walls, defend, and hopefully win!

As this is my first map I would like it to be rated and commented, telling me how to improve the map, what to add next time etc. this would be GREATLY appreciated! Thanks!

======= Story! ======

Erathia was once a peaceful land, filled with nobles, kings and peasents alike, all living together in harmony. Alas, this was not to last, dark creatures grew envious of this, burning and pillaging every village and city in Erathia. Darkness reigned over these glorious lands, turning the fertile lands into ash filled cesspits, Erathia was lost. However, lying at the edge of the Midgard ocean lies the heavily fortified fortress of Asguard, a realm untouched by the dark hordes. Led by Queen Emilia Nighthaven you must defend this great fortress to whatever end.

Good luck and have fun!

Please rate! ^.^

These include the following:
More scenery/trees etc.
Harder attack force.
Less defending troops.

I'll be making a campaign soon based around Queen Emilia NightHaven and the land of Erathia, hope to hear some good feedback!

Enjoy. x]

P.s. Can someone help me playtest the scenarios i'll be making, that'd me helpful, thanks!!

Makavielli First, you have to add some minimap.
Dumptrailer2 Downloading. I will Rate.

(Next time, try putting a minimap on the page. Gives people an idea of the map. There is a minimap pnger in the downloads section. ^_^)

barbarius Well, I played on your map. First time, I defended the castle, and, in th esecond time, I attacked it. This it what I think.

Playability: 3.5
Defense - As you said, there is'nt any difficulty here. We just have to put our troops on the wall, and they can easily kill everybody, even the swordsmen. They can't destroy my gatehouse, it was very easy. But I liked it. Maybe because of the design, or because I like killing a lot of troops (no, I'm not sadistic ^^), but I don't think i can do again the map. It's really too easy, so it's like I was losing my time.

Attack - Here again, quite easy. On "Normal" level, we can make a lot of troops (I had more than200 crossbow and 200 macemen), and I don't do a real strategy, jsut sending all my crossbow in front of the castle. I lost a lot of troops, but I can kill the Lord, and kill all the enemies. Oh, about the objectives, I don't know if it's come from me, but, when I kill the Enemy Lord, I don't have "Victory" message... And I don't h'ave "Victory" message neither when I kill all the enemies. It's quite frustrating.

So, about the playability, the map is too easy, but catching.

Balance: 3.5
As I said before, the map is very easy, and this could be a problem. When I defend the castle, the enemy couldn't enter in the castle ; they were any luck to kill myself. Maybe you must create a second version where you can make a assault more strong, very more strong than that.

Creativity: 3.5
I don't think this criterion is veru useful in this kind of game. "Siege" mode is very restrictive, so make original maps is very difficult, I think. So, I can't really judge you on this point. However, I sawx you used a eye-candy (I think...) by putting a trebuchet on a wall. I think original also the outpost with crossbows at the North of the map.

Map Design: 4.5
Very beautiful ! The castle was good, especially the area around the gatehouse, with the stairs. The rivers which cross the map were also beautiful. They seems to be like rivers at the end of canyons. A lot of work has been done about the map, a good work. The map is pretty beautiful, congratulations on this point.

Story/Instructions: 3
A brief story to introduce the battle.

Additional Comments:
A very good map for a beginner. You can do beautiful maps, but don't hesitate to do difficult maps too !
strongholder nl There would be a lot more people that would download your map if you would add a minimap.
Makavielli Lol add the minimap! It isn't very hard! The castle is good, but if you add the minimap,lots of people will download it!
