Author File Description
File Details
Map Size: 400x400 (Large)

Kingdom of Ballista

Kingdom of Ballista castle that have strong defense because ballista is on the walls.


After the Arabian knew how to make fire ballista, they built the biggest castle in the world in that time. They used the fire ballista to defense the castle from their enemies. After 10 years, the Europeans tried to siege the castle but, they felled to control the castle. The Europeans took 30 years in siege of this castle. No one can take the control of this castle which is making lord O.P.L interesting to siege this castle. So he collect 10 thousand man and move to siege the castle.


You should use your troops wisely. If you do tiny mistake, maybe you lose your troops. Use engineers as the most impotent soldiers. You can use tower siege tick(Tower without engineers)because if you do that no one attack them or try to destroy them. And use all of engineers for shields. You should burn pitch with some pikemen and macemen. Use archer, crossbow men and shield to dispersal fire ballista.

Playability: 5

Wow what I can say it’s really the Strangest secret in stronghold crusader. The siege was defficult in first time but it’s not imposable I finish it in third time. But it’s imposable if you don’t use strategies to attack this kingdom. About 500 pike mans will die if you don’t wisely. Also I think Sword mans are useless because if pike mans die, the sword mans never kill the king they are slow and weak in front of fire Ballista. Finely I will give you 5 in playability. I interested when I play it. It is really siege

Balance: 5

In the balance I give you 5 because there no wrong in the army. You give player all of troops that he needs. The number of troops is possible to kill the lord. Also you give him a lot of money so who will play this map can rebuild siege equipments.

Creativity: 5

This is the most important thing I think ((Creativity)) there are many things creativity the first one fire ballista on wall. I didn’t see in all of stronghold heaven any map like this. There are Ballista on wall in round kingdom. And castle shape it’s very well. Also you set good wild out the kingdom. There are another thing made me wonder. It is the layers include especially last layers. It’s very high highest than high plain.

Map Design: 5

What I can say about map design there are no wrong in it. You set good and new things in wild like high hill and desert weather climate. Really very one can see there are no wrong. I’ll give you 5 in map design.

Story/Instructions: 4

Good story but i think it's not correct story.But I it is not bad and it's interesting for me. also you give who will play this map the way how he will win. Now the mission became easy with these instructions.

Also, asking anything in the forums will offer you a much faster answer :)

Boxter959 Hi I played your map and it is interesting for me.
But, it is impossible and I will give your map review.Which is my first review.

reno_keizer Nice map...and yeah how to put tower ballista and fire ballista on the wall.
@ Lord_of Hell: almost all tricks in "the list of tricks" in forum is useless for stronghold crusader. It's very usefull for stronghold 1, because all the tricks need Wooden Gatehause but in SHC, we dont have it.
So please tell us, how to do that? please...please....
