CounterUnits

Author File Description
CrazyEngineerKid
File Details
Game Version: AoE3+TWC+TAD
# of Players: 4
You are given 30 of the unit you pick. You then fight everyone’s units in a relatively small arena. At the end of each skirmish, the winning player gets a point and all of his or her remaining units are killed. This prevents one player from building up a massive invincible army as happens in some coliseum games. The first player to get to 3, 6, or 10 points wins. The host can pick the number at the beginning of the game. The really great thing about this game is that you are always talking to the people you are playing with, making or destroying alliances, trading bragging rights between skirmishes, etc. The key to winning the game is to not attack first; let your opponents kill each other… then come kill the remains…

P.S. This is an entry in the CSO Contest

ivanelterrible he probably just confused, and meaned that 30 dragonns will beat 30 hussars, a little error I guess :P.
matt light One of you play this game with me, I'll beat your 30 goons with 30 hussars pretty much everytime. Keep in mind the scenario only gives you regular, not vet, goons.
Chester1 regular goons ARE vet goons. good try though.

and i will accept this offer and show you that with proper micro you will should never lose to 30 hussar with 30 goons.

ill accept that i should change the number of units given, but would that balance it too much?


and muskets in mele mode (or jans for that matter) can kill most of the cav there unless they use hit and run which is hard and a pain for the opposition.


one of the keys is that you need to get everyone else to attack first.

the game is very easy to play. The first time you play, you can provide a decent matchup to other players. My only thoughts are that perhaps it would be better if you couldnt see what other units are being made by your enemies.

Balance: 1
this balance is quite horrible. Unit numbers are out of control here sorry. And with the being able to see eachother's choices it makes it like rock paper scissors. a rock paper scissors where if the paper hides in the corner and let scissors and rock duke it out paper can swoop in beat em both at the last minute.

Creativity: 3
it is semi creative. in today's AoE it is fairly unique, however long ago.. back in aoe3 nilla days, there was a game called arena wars which was similar to this, just it had far more depth and replay ability.

Map Design: 3
standard map w/ standard features. nothing really shines here, but its not like staring at blank map either. nor does it make my retinas burn. so yea its avg, and thus avg score will be awarded.

Story/Instructions: 4
the instructions were more than enough to get the point across. a fairly simple game with simple instructions, i would liked to see more depth but it works.

Additional Comments:
rework the unit #'s available, and perhaps add some more to the game. also it might be wise to lower flag bearer LOS to that of one. and reinstate the fog of war while also adding revealers to the main arena.

My review on CrazyEngineerKid: Counter Units.

MrMario

Playability: 3

It was a better one then Speed Round: had some good idea. Would like see your own base so that you cant see the other players chose. Like rock, paper, scissors

Balance: 1

The balance is bad. Just like chester1 said. Would like to see have 2 player fightting then all of them. So that it can be fair for everyone

Creativity: 4

Wasnt the best that you could of picked out. Just like arena wars. But was very planed out.

Map Design: 4

Standared map. Didnt really put a hole lot to it. Just wanted to be done and put it in the CSO Contest.

Story/Instructions: 4

Good Opening: Wished you could have had the game be a little long

Additional Comments:
Good Job: I had fun and Love it

For New Players don’t know what attacks so I would not tell them to play this

You chose a single unit for battles, anyone of the other 2 players that you were not planning to counter is trying to counter you, I give you a neutral point since I can't find a way to give you any lower score.

Balance: 2
Again you chose a single unit, the balance was quite rotten since the player with ranged units at the back could have won, no balance.

Creativity: 2
Well...I guess countering is at least something, so I give you a 2.

Map Design: 3
Organized map is good enough for a neutral score.

Story/Instructions: 3
Understandable, nothing much, I give a 3.

Additional Comments:
I didn't like the map much, one unit type per round isn't fun at all.
danno_canuck Playability: 4
Ok not really any playability isues. And it was decently fun.

Balance: 2
as has been stated before unit cost should have been accounted for in the amount off units you get.

Creativity: 2
Not overly creative but it wasnt just a remake. LIke many colloseum clones. It was nice to be able to choose my units.

Map Design: 3
What can i say it wasnt overly original at all but didnt hurt the eyes

Story/Instructions: 3
They were adiquate but not overly inpressive

Additional Comments:
Overall it did entertain me so you did a fine job. That is the purpose of a Scenario anyway.

Sorry danno_canuck your reviews are too short! You need to add a lot more suggestions and critique to help the designer and the downloader! Thanks
