I first played this map on Very Hard. Somewhat challenging, the enemy managed to smash their way into the castle, but failed to enter the keep area. It was fun trying to defend the outer wall from the macemen, but then the battering rams would just smash down everything. Once the walls were down the pikes would come in and raze all the buildings.
There were way too many archers. The number of swordsmen and pikemen was just right, but the pikemen never got into the keep because of the vast number of archers.
Not bad, but could have been a bit more creative. The stairs placed at the bottom of the walls were new, I haven't seen that idea before. :)
Map Design: 3.5
Good map design! To the bottom left corner were some detailed woods, and a nice lake. The cliff surrounding the castle doesn't look very
natural. Some different sized rocks, boulders, iron would do the trick.
A bit short. Try writing a 3-4 sentence paragraph.

It's a great spectacle on very hard. Use the peasants and the immense starting gold.
The invasions are scripted in separate waves arriving at the same time, so they can unfold rather well.
