I thought this map was really enjoyable. You'll be able to replay this map many times, as it is fun each time. When attacking, there are lots and lots of different ways to attack, and while defending, the enemy realises this and executes it.
When defending on normal, the map is very easy. So, I think play on very hard.(juergen, you need to change the attacking force so it's not too easy and not oo hard) Attacking is different story altogether. You need to plan your advance carefully, and I like that. The ease of defence brought your score down.
The map has a large surrounding area, nearly completely covered with detail(apart from some blank areas), and the castle looks really cool.
Map Design: 3.5
You designed the castle and the terrain and hills very well. The castle has a unique design and the surrounding area supports the castle by making it look like an actual trade route.
There was a bit of a story on the website, but nothing on the download! Some people, like me, have limits for how much Internet they can use, so reading a long story online can be costly, so they download the map and then read the story. I recommend adding the story to the download.
Very enjoyable map. Well-designed, good terrain detail and good fun factor. Good job!
