Eilan Donan

Author File Description
File Details
Map Size: 300x300 (Medium)
Difficulty: Normal
Made with version: 1.1
Eilan Donan is situated on small island in Scotland. Builders of the castle appeard to belevie, that water is enough to stop invaders. Indeed Elinan DOnan is kind of fortificated mansion.

The castle was built in 1220 by Scottish King Alexander II. It is believed that it served as a shelter to Robert Bruce during his escape from the English army in 1306.

Are you able to defend the castle against English army chasing Robert Bruce?

Adam the First I downloaded and played the map, and I would like to write a review, but before that I have to tell my impressions:
The scenario is impossible. The defences are extremely weak, and my tiny amount of melees, archers and xbowmen have no chance against the giant hordes of pikemen and swordsmen. I would suggest to solve the balance problems by lessenening the attacking forces and/or giving more troops for the player. Another alternative is keeping the large invasions and giving a lot of oil boilers and/or pitch ditches for the player, which would occur a very tactical-defense based scenario.

Maybe try on easy - my colleage from polish forum won at that level, 61 % troops lost at he told me that balance is good ;).

Despite of that fact, say something about map ;).
Adam the First Well, if the map is barely winnable on easy, then the balance is very bad, but I will try it again as you suggested.
Though I think you should still update the map, as it is still impossible on Normal, Hard and Very Hard.

ok, I think you're right, i will change it than - how much % should I lessen invasions? 25% less or more?
Adam the First The best thing you should do here is giving more troops for the palyer, or the ability to place pitch ditches (maybe 50 starting pitch) and braziers (or more oil boilers).

ok, wait a while, map is updated ;). Try it now ;)
Adam the First The map in the file cannot be opened in the game, please remove the dot from between the two numbers in the file name, or remove the whole 1.2 tag too. :)

Also, there is no stockpile, so the pitch cannot be used, don't do the updates in rush. ;)
