old Helms Deep

Author File Description
Arclan Cirel
File Details
Map Size: 400x400 (Large)
Difficulty: Hard

This is my first submitted map.

(edit) updated August 25, 2003. Sorry, this map is essentially a siege. Replaced rear staircase with ramped earth. Many thanks to Jalis for his kindess and help via email. (/edit)

Inspired by previous Helms Deep map, I created this one from an original picture-map of Helm's Deep. (link below)
The castle is strong and defending army huge. But alas, can even this combination withstand thousands of invading (orcs)?

Protect your gatehouses and use your cavalry are the only hints I can provide.

Other pictures of helms deep can be found below
Like another author, I too spent much time learning how the AI reacts to the map. For example, you need to elevate walls about 20 'clicks' above the rest of the terrain, otherwise enemy units waste time destroying stratetically useless walls.

Good Luck ! Feel free to modify and/or improve the map.

Dianna125 A fun mission overall, with a ton of action! Loved the three million macemen rushing my castle. Even on very hard - not all of the macemen attacked my castle, I had to go out and kill them. Despite that slight drawback I enjoyed myself a lot and really thought that this was a well planned mission.
Lord Liam's comments & rating have been removed. The map has been checked by a member of staff and, while all reviewing is subjective, the low ratings are blatantly wrong in this case.

If you wish to review again, Lord Liam, please read the Review Guide, do not insult the mapmaker and learn punctuation and spelling.
Tarathiel Though I myself have not yet played this map, I have been looking for a Stronghold version of Helms Deep since The Two Towers came to theaters. I look forward to trying this map. Oh, and I salut you for making a Helms Deep map, I have tried myself and failed misirably at it. I'm sure it took a fair amount of time.
TeunDeMan This is a Stronghold map not a crusader :S isn't it??????:S
I'm not quite sure what you're saying - yes, this is a Stronghold map and is in the Stronghold Invasion section, not Crusader.
Comando_Danny I am really looking forward to playing this map, I respect that you were able to make this map because I tried and failed 100%
