Shipwrecked

Author File Description
zeteter
File Details
Game Version: AoE3
# of Players: 2
Each player finds himself shipwrecked in the new world. One has met his fate among the rocky coast and the other has forced his small sinking ship to shore far up an inland river. Rocky bluffs and dense forest prevent either player from direct contact by land, yet the river offers each the vulnerability of direct attack by ship. This is my first custom map. Please review if possible. Thanks.

Quite a fun map to play.

Balance: 4
Very good, players of all levels will appreciate it.

Creativity: 3
An interesting idea that is a refreshing change from most nomral maps.

Map Design: 3
The map looks stunning, it looks very realistic and it presents good challenges when building the colony. However, you can still land troops near an opponents towncentre and both sides of the map are very balanced, so there is no motivation to explore enemy territory early on in the game. It is easier just to build a huge economy an army and then just land troops on the other side of the cliffs, near the enemy TC and overwhelm them.

Story/Instructions: 2
None, but it does not really require one.

Additional Comments:
An interesting map, but the way the water is painted removes the great naval battles promised, it functions like any map with islands. Perhaps if you were to forbid caravels and other transport ships, or raised the river banks, it might solve this as it is possible to land troops anywhere on the map.
