You need to spend more than 3 minutes on your map and make them look nice. Don't just grab the biggest size tool and slop random oasis, iron, and stone in random locations.
Check out the map tutorials on the main page to help you get an idea of what to do.

^ totally, if everybody would upload 1-5 minutes made maps its would be like a huge amount of flood to this site and I dont think that we would find some lovers of these maps.

If you play with AI`s you will see that they will not work on the western positions! This map is also not good for tactic gameplay, because there is only big flat land! Also there are no style elements, and no using of different grasland! Look up some other maps, whitch are uploadet here on Stronghold Heavengames - you will see nice realistic, and tactic territories!
So all in all you should practice some more before you upload more maps! Do not upload more maps with style like this!!
I SAID DO NOT UPLOAD MORE MAPS WITH BAD STYLE LIKE THIS!!!! YOU MADE TOO MUCH SPAM!! LOOK UP MY MAP THE HIDDEN PEACE TO SEE HOW YOUR MAPS SHOULD LOOK LIKE BEFORE YOU UPLOAD THEM!!!

Sorry, I don't like it.
The first thing to consider for a map's overall layout is placement of the keeps. You probably placed the river first, and because it's so close to the left side, you've crammed the two keeps too close to the edge. Be sure to give keeps enough room so AI's and players can build their castles. Please spend a little more time on your maps.

And except the MASSIVE lack of details, the very bad balance, not even the name is correct: I don't see "continents" here.
Just taking a random name is useless, as the name of a map should provide some first information about it. To provide information about the map, the title must have sth to do with the map. Otherwise it's just confusing nonsense.
