|Adam the First
I have to say that this map was very refreshing to play, I had a great time playing it. In the begininng the player's troops are scattered around the castle in a very bad position. So the player's first and maybe hardest task is to gather all the troops and send them to the main tactical posts, wich were the ballista towers and for the archers the braziers. Then I've coordinated all my melee troops to the keep. The player is meant to do these manoeuvres very fast, as the anamy attacks in the third month. When the wolf started his attack, I've sent out my knights and elimianted the rest of his archers x-bows and macemen and a siege tower, unfortunately the second one had reached the walls and a groups of pikemen managed to kil some of mine xbows, the other groups of pikemen had destroyed the gate and flooded the castle, then I lit the pitches and all of them were killed by the flames. After all of the enemy troops died, the slow swordsmen finally reached the castle, most of them were killed by my x-bows, the others had reached the inenr castle and started to atatck its walls, I let only one got through and killed him with my swordsmen, as I wanted to use my melee troops too. :P
The mission was challenging, it wasn't too hard, but wasn't too easy. I won it for the second attempt, as in the first I had only examined the attacking forces and tried to do something against them, but I left my lord alone, and the marching swordsmen killed him, so it ended with a lose. My second attempt was more successful(see playability above). However I don't give it a five, as I didn't have to try it many times.
Not a creative one, the design is simple, everyone can do something like that, but the castle was very good and effective, so I give you a 3.
Map Design: 2.5
As I mentioend only the castle looked good, the surrounding are looked very rushed and unnatural, but not bad for a first attempt, I see you have the potential, so keep improving. :)
Well this map had no story, so I can't really rate this category, but if you add a story, I will change the score. ;)
