This map is a prelude to Succession of Maerlioc. It's set at the Batttle of Bloody Ford, where Prince Michael II's father dies (supposedly) in a bloody battle against the pig's army known as "The Red Tide" for their overwhelming numbers. Shortly before the battle King Michael I sends off a scout to inform his son of his death, he was not expicting to survive against such numbers. "Tell him that I am either dead or captured, and if I am captured he should not try to make ransom, surely the pig will demand more than what is fair. Tell him he is king now." As he makes his last charge the king feels regret that he was never as good and popular with the peasants as his son was, he had always ruled by the gauntlet and the sword. "This shall be my last campaign," he thinks to himself "if I should somehow survive this I shall never do battle again, I shall become a priest."
I dont see why you locked the map as it isnt anywere near the standard for someone to want to steal your ideas

There does not apear to be any win perameters i was left with 90 horsemen and i still did not win i searched the whole screen 3 or four times and there were no pigs men left
Thats fixed now and the map is playable again. With win perameters on it realy makes this map fun playing even if it is alittle short :( but overall good map
Fairly challenging on normal and VERY challenging on hard but aslong as you keep together and stop them surounding you its is a comfy victory
Nice idea shame you cant win...
Map Design: 3
Nothing special here looks like you have played with the natural tools for about 5 mins to cover the map
Nice story belivable
But to be honest i would still not lock your maps its pointless and if there are any glitches that you cant figure out then other people can help you.

Actually I did place win parameters...it must be glitching on me, I'll have to fix that. I was planning on updating anyway, the only reason I posted so early was to give a prelude to Succession of Maerlioc.

^_^I WIN this map~HAHAHAHA~
Now,maybe this map is impossible to rush just for a glance,but there is a trick in it.I don't know whether the author thinks so:The CROSSBOWMEN is the key!
First,move all your crossbowmen and about 40~80 pikemen(they are used to protect the crossbowmen in case in the moving.Makesure you cann't loss even a crossbowman)to the right corner near the river,at one time,move all swordmen and macemen to hold up the enemy as quickly as possible.They can attract the enemy to protect the crossbowmen and pikemen from the slay(your operation now is choosing your destiny,remember must be quickly and precisly!)
After your crossbowmen an pikemen are on the postion.you will find ¡¡you can kill all the enemy with your lovely CROSSBOWMEN!At the end of battle,you can use the pikemen to accelerate your victory~~~~Enjoy it.ha
