This is a hard multi player map. Resources are low, and there are few extra towns so players will be forced to colonize to gain gold and mana. There are a lot of suprises however, which gives almost a role playing feel.
This map has definatly not had enough time spent on it. A few bits look just about ok (like the starting positions) However the rest of the map is plain terrain (either grassland or wasteland) with nothing at all on top of it (including units/cities) as well as having no map structure what so ever. To make this map playable, it would need to have a lot of time spent on making it look nice as well as adding some more mountains to stop it being just one very large open space. Also, the cavern 'maze' is pointless with one city at the end to reward endless turns of wandering around.
Don't give up. :) Its just that this map needs a hell of a lot of work on it to make it playable!
