C.T.F. Abduction

Game Version: AoE3+TWC+TAD
# of Players: 4 (TvB)


Capture the Flag ~ Abduction
This is my Forth CSO, and the Second CTF Style game.

Much like my other CTF, the Goal of this CSO is to convert a unit 'the flag' which in this game are herdables. Team 1's goal is to convert the Sheep the is located in 'The Animal Pin'.



From the Pit, Team 1 must walk the Sheep back to their 'Sacred Field' located back behind their main base. Team 2 has a similar objective. Team 2 must do the same things as Team 1, just their goal is to get the Llama instead of the Sheep.



In the Center of the map, there is a place called 'The Cow-Post', Named so because a successful capture of the 'Cow' in the middle will result in the conversion of two outposts on the Top and Bottom of the map.



When a person gets these outposts, a new power becomes available to them. They can then make their gather point one of these Outposts and send valuable shipments from their HC. Along with this, the two Outposts become a very nice barricade.



Throughout the game, Explorers will be crucial units to your army. Their HP is very high, and their atk is superb. Use of these Units will be crucial in winning any battle. Knowing this, Your opponents will try to kill these units, And when this happens they will respawn in the corners of the map where they will wait until an allied unit rescues them, or they reach full HP.



I hope you all will enjoy this map.

@Kev, again,

"Playability: 4
Same as ivan, however i give u a 4, just use the qv trigger to kik whichc player deletes the llama, and respawn the llama, u could also just use an explorer, and use the convert trigger, since the explorer cna;t be deleted"

Could you use proper English? Not a big proble mbut it makes your review much more readable. This is fine.

"Balance: 3
Blance as ivan said is crappy, u might consider removing the decks"

You need to explain more! I would remove this on the grounds as there is nowhere near enough explanation. You're trying to help the designer - why is the balance 3? Did you play it online; did one civ win all the time? Why?

"Creativity: 3
Srry, but there r now way to many flag type games out there"

According to the guidelines you cannot mark down for this. Again not enough explanation.

"Map Design: 4
Map design was pretty good, not great but i gave u a 4"

Ok, but more explanation! Seeing the pattern yet? Give suggestions, hints!

"Story/Instructions: 2
Instructions were kinda crappy, u could improve on that, and maybe add a storyline? Would improve htis alot more. Y is the cow so important, is it holy? lol"

This I do not agree with at all. The reviewing guidelines say a scenario with instructions and no story is a 3. However as this is a multiplayer scenario where a story is not required as it will get frustrating for players wanting to play, I'd suggest 3 is too low. The instructions are perfect apart from leaving the "edit text here" bits being left in. This category should have a high score. Definitely not a 2.

So Kev this is another candidate to be removed. I will give you a period of time to edit and if you don't it will be removed.

Also the flaming earlier is not appreciated at all. I can give warnings and bans out for infringements in the downloads section if needs be. Chester I know it's frustrating when you get unfairly reviewed but try to keep your cool! And Kev, you need to be fair with your reviewing. If you can't, don't review at all.
KevTheGreat 1st- on the playabilty u tell me to fix my spelling, when u already on the first sentence have more "major" misspellings than me, but watever. Language has always been m,y worst subject.

2nd- I will increase my wording on balance

3rd- This is one of the mnay flag type games out there, i believe ppl should come up with different ideas. If there are already five of those type of games and the game that u made is not hugely better than the others, i believe that it is a waste of time becuase u can come up with an idea of your own.

4th- i will increase my explanation on map design

5th- i belive almost every scenario can have a storyline, pretty much all execpt colluseum (or maybe a crappy one for colluseum) You should state wat is so important about the herdables, y do they want it, are everyone low on meat, is it a sprt that they r playing, is the cow holy. I belive that a scenario should not get above a 2.5 (MAX) without a storyline. therefore his score is now a 2. As i said before adding a storyline would increase this catagory hugely

6th- I believe that i have reviewed fairly according to wat i usually give other scenarios, i would have given this same score contest or not.

Despite the contest rules, your review still breaks AoE3H's Rules. And like the mod said, They should be changed accordingly. All that should be done to comply with rules is a boost of one or two scores, why fight it so much? just make the edit, and save yourself the drama.

that said, sorry earlier for the comments. But it was VERY clear to me, you have not even bothered to read any of the rules of the forums, and most of the rules of the contest. i strongly suggest you do so.

I'm sorry Kev, that's not the response I hoped for. If your review does not meet our guidelines then it will be removed. Yours doesn't meet the guidelines.

for creativity AND Instructions.

KevTheGreat i will give your inctructions a three, i believe your scenario needs a story on the heardables, as for creativity, 3 = average, yours is average, nothing new or bad
