Akavir- Surviving A Winter

Author File Description
File Details
Map Size: 300x300 (Medium)
Difficulty: Hard
- Invasion of Esroniet
- The Conquest Begins
- Surviving A Winter

Well here it is! the thrid chapter in my series. Sorry it took so long to make, the snow was a pain in the *bleep* but anyway here is a short description, you can find the main story in the zip. folder.

Well, the winter in Akavir is more severe than predicted, you have recieved an urgent request for reinforcements at Fort Irathi. Take a bulk of your men and fight your way to the Fort, Make sure Fort Irathi does not fall, Protect it at all costs! Also, a band of Tsaesci Raiders have agreed on helping the garrison if all the wolves in the area have been killed.

If you find any problems with the map please notify me, Also I reccomend playing this map on normal or easy first, and one word of advice is........ Do not let the main gate to the fort fall! if it gets destroyed you pretty much have no chance at sucess.

Enjoy ;)

Fintrollx This was an amazing map and best one of the Akavir so far, made by Taurus480. Amazing map design, battles and scripting, the map also has snow which is very rare in an Stronghold map.

Playability: 5
At the start we need to hurry with our forces in the South west, to help the castle which is under attack, even the first battle and the start of the map is exciting, marching in the beatiful nature, to manage to stay alive. After the first battle was won, i needed to quickly prepare for another attack, after that building economy and hunting the wolves down to have reinforcements (The map is really hard withouth them, for me it was impossible at normal, to win without them) There is sieges to handle, everyone of them balanced for the time they happens, this map has been playtested and balanced professionally, the map is hard, but that's what i like, after beating the final invasion with wounded lord and some archers left, it's really cool. in the final invasion you have to handle siege equipments and strong armored pikemen also that made it a real challenge. i found no problems on playability, the difficulty makes the map really replayable also.

Balance: 5
First time i played this on easy i managed to beat it with not too much trouble without the reinforcements. on normal i had to hurry, building the economy and protecting the castle all the times. i also had to kill the wolves as a objective to gain reinforcements from the north, which helped me to win in the end. this map was best balanced for me at normal, since it's really hard map, i think i'll try this on hard, but my strategy needs to be really accurate than, though it was on normal also.

Creativity: 5
The map features unique things like snow, and custom towers and walls, also stairs. the design of the map is also creative with beatiful river and bridge over it, the land is very realistic and wolves howling gave a perfect mood for Surviving at winter.

Map Design: 5
Very realistic map design, the snow was really realistic and cool. i pretty much told alot of this at Creativity section.

Story/Instructions: 5
Brilliant story in the campaign and in this map in the Zip File, Instructions in the download page and In-game.

Additional Comments:
Fantastic map, with unique features and hectic battles and amazing realistic map design.
