Battle of Artemisium

Author File Description
File Details
Map Size: 400x400 (Large)
Difficulty: Normal
Made with version: 1.1
The battle of Artemisium was a naval battle fought between the city states of greece and the Persians coincedentaly during the famous Battle of Thermopylae. Historically the Persians won the battle but I changed the story a bit. In the end both sides suffered heavy losses.

To win defeat the enemy lord and 120 persians by boarding ships and crossing islands. This is my first map ive made so please comment. And sorry for any grammatical errors.

peter2008 Phew, I'm just a farmer type of player. So first I hesitated to enter this sea battle. Now I'm very glad I did.
It proved to be an exciting map. The fleets have already locked jaws and fighting is running at three spots simultaneously. All the Crusader units appear, European and Arabian swordsmen making up the big bulks.
Here's to be found an excellent exercise in ranged fighting. Height advantages and lines of sight vary heavily, between the ships and even between their superstructures. Once a line of my swords charged towards the very high ship in the south-east. For some time they came under fire of the archers there, in between came out of sight and finally entered a shooting ground again. Only when they had destroyed the railing, my marksmen had a chance to hit the defenders.
Palat, you have put a lot of succesful effort and fun into creating all these vessels and manning them. Among them are supply boats, big transporters and great galleons.
Thanks a lot.

There's a spot in the map where assassins can attack your troops but you can't attack back because of wall height differences... its on one of the boats, so watch out!

I liked how all the units started in different places and some started out in battle i liked the sea battle you created don't see things like that very often.

Perfect! I thought the boats were real and you made a few paths to travel on so there wasn't no choice on which way to go.The map looked natural.You had to travel along boats and get to the enemies Island and defeat their lord

Story/Instructions: 3
Story explained the scene well and it was good how you changed the story because you have to play the winning side even though they lost :D

Additional Comments:
