I Played this map as a attacker and defender, as an attackers the map is not really playable becouse of it is way too easy, there is so much towers but so few people in the castle it was disappointing, i wouldn't play this again becouse of that. as a defender you have so few troops as i said but many attackers it could have been a hard time to stop them taking over the castle but becouse of too much towers the AI just destroyd them while it was easy to take out the ones who destroyed the gates or important towers.
as i said on playabilit section this map is really easy as an attacking and it could have been hard on defending but thanks to computer intelligence it wasn't actually, but there's nothing you can do about it expect to desings the castle other way, so i couldn't say it is well balanced
there's nothing new in the map or in the castle.. the bridge was fun and the cathedral in the castle is great, nothing much to say here
Map Design: 3
the designs of the castle is unique becouse of it's so many towers, but that's the problem on balance and playability, so much tower so few troops + AI makes it really unbalanced
Basic story, it was fine, not too long a short one but it was fine for a story.
you can improve alot by reading map making 101, going to the forums, check other people castles, keep it up! spend more time on the designs this map could have been alot better, im expecting to see more maps from you in the future
