This is the biggest castle I have made yet. I am open to ALL comments!
This has been updated it should be harder. I made the terrain better too.
EDIT: Thinking about updating it so keep an eye here!
06/02/03 This review was about the map before updating.
Playability : 2
It would be a siege map to play as defender more than a invasion one. You don’t have to build anything, nor needed, nor even time to do it since you start under immediate attack. Play game just ask you to change your troops position and see your soldiers slaughtering successives invasions. Really with only one signpost simply move your 400 missiles troops in front of the castle and start shooting every in sight. A good point however to playability is this map is quick to play.
Balance : 1
With over 600 garrisoned troops I wonder how even a rookie player could loose especially because I feel invasion's force to be less numerous and of less quality than yours. Quiet strange considering attacker managed be AI had to take a castle with weaker army than yours.
Map design : 2
terrain is mostly a flat meadow with some efforts from place to place for decor, but overall it lack a little of work. Castle is huge, probably uselessly huge and rather unrealistic, with his maze of walls and gates in front. Some classicals mistakes such as let war machines available for player that make signpost at fire range, or in an other matter allowing marketplace but no trade possible…
Off course no events off any kind. Definitivly more a siege map than an invasion.
Ps : one more map starting in January 1066 :(
Creativity : 3
No real comments to do.
Story : 2
Short and classical but it exist.
Played once,in V1.2, at hard setting and suffer 2% loose. Some fights occurs outside the castle when I launched a 130 angry macemens kampfgruppe with moral bonus to clear survivors of enemies invasions.
Overall : a too unbalanced map to be really funny and nothing to do except winning an easy battle. Hard conclusion I add to admit. Perhaps a little more work and play testing needed.

Very slowly I am improving this map, the castle will change, it will (hopefuly) be much harder too.
I want everyone to know this was like my first map so its not good, but in time it might get better.
