Yes it is a good map and yes i enjoyed it but why did you only write that? It isn't a good way to promote your map and it's rather dissapointing.I marked you down because you only wrote 1 sentence, maybe you should fix it. Anyway about your map. I was shocked to see such an attractive wooden fort. Normaly people dont design good wooden forts but i think yours is great, infact i think its the best one i've seen so far. Funilly enough i am designing my first map and my fort looks suprisingly the same as yours, so don't say i stole your idea,hahahaha. This map is very good and the terrain was also of great standard. The castle is what caught my eye though. I like the way you didn't make it perfect, (it looks more real) and the surroundings blended in well with the cliffs. The random placing of rocks was well done and thats why you got a 5 for creativity. Your balance was off though. I only lost 16 men and the knights only destroyed one gate. I think you should fix this up, when you do i will rise the mark but untill then it stays. A very fun and entertaining map well worth a play. Great job!

Great map! I really love the fortress design - very creative and probably the best part of this map. It is a bit too easy but really close on very hard, 90% losses. You should have made it a bit harder, but a 4 is needed as I did get a great game on very hard. The AI work well to begin with but do goa bit funny especially towards the end when instead of going up to kill the lord some swordsmen are destoying the palisade walls in a few different locations. Does affect the playability and balance. As said briefly above the fortress is divine - really creative. It would have been nice to have an economy and play it as a longer invasion with gaps between invasions. The fort seems to be so high up for some reason and the steady climb up here is great. I used the tactic of retreating my archers from gatehous to gatehouse very effective. The surounding map dsign is nice - do not eally like the foam in the river though (looks a bit odd) but it is a safe 4. Nice wooden walkways bridge. I would like to see a bit more storyline on the site itself - there is a fine piece in the text document in the zip file but a site description is needed to advertise the map. Overall good work, I enjoyed playing your well put together map.
