Gladiator

Author File Description
Phrozen_
File Details
Map Size: 200x200 (Small)
Difficulty: Normal
Gladiator is one of my favourite movies aside from Lord of the rings. I made this map to create an open warfare feeling and to recreate the opening scene of that great movie gladiator. I don't know if anyone has done this before but i hope you like it. Please give suggestions and comments. Thanks

Sad to say, I'd guess this map is in the top ten because of the recognizability of the name. This is unfortunate, but you can't really tell much about a map usually from the description someone gives.

The concept has a lot of possibilities, but I wouldn't say in Siege. To keep with the movie, you'd have a lot of spearmen/footman, parties of Knights riding in to break them up, deep woods where parties of enemy would hide and you would have to seek them out to complete the mission, you could rig up small towers for archers to start "forest fires" and burn huge areas, killing your troops, strategically placed war dogs, wood traps throughout traffic areas. Basically, it would be a combination seek-and-destroy and free-for-all in open areas. Small invasion events could reinforce the enemy periodically. The "Blue" team might be allowed a small base to recruit more archers and spearmen, but no more Knights. Macemen, Pikemen, Crossbowmen and Swordmen wouldn't be used probably, to keep with the theme. An enemy camp with several Halls where you could kill the Generals would be cool. All kinds of possibilities present themselves, suggested by the movie. I can't say that this map realizes any of them. Sorry to be negative.

A interesring idea, but it needs more detail

Playability:3
It is playable, but it needs a bit more attention to making the enemies charge, and also the layout of your soldiers. There isn't really much point in putting the Keep on a cliff, as it makes the mission impossible for the enemy.

Balance:2
Far too easy! All you have to do is kill most of the spearmen with your swordsmen and archers, then charge your knights in to finish them off

Creativity:3
A good idea, but needs a bbit more effoert to make it work well.

Map design:2
A plain, unexciting lump of ground with some hills and trees. Needs a lot more effort here.

Story/Instructions:2
Barely any Story or Instructions at all.
