This new version can be played in "single player" mode!! Everything has been enhanced, and long playtested in "single player" mode to be sure it works.
I had fun during the play-test, so I wish you to have more fun since you don't know the map!
The "multi-player" mode is quite well-balanced, but it worths "expert" level for the "good" players (three kinds of Elves).
I started the game as the centre, the outside guys coming to conquer seem to be good at sitting and doing nothing as computer players.

This review comes from the now closed site aow2battleground.com. My review system there was a bit different, but I've tried to translate the ratings as good as I can.

This one is a multiplayer map I guess, since the wizards has huge amounts of boats an air galleys (which the AI can't use). But on the other hand, playing this in MP would be pointless since the AI wizards don't know how to cross the water... The purpose of this map is unknown to me. But with no other maps to play, I put this one up anyway.
Balance : 1
Terrible balance since the AI can't use boats.
Graphic details : 2
The biggest brush has been used a lot. No hills.
Story/Instructions : 4
There are some messages and stuff, but not much of a story. But the wizards all have descriptions.
Customization : 3
Some heroes has been added.
Creativity : 3
The map layout is terrible, and is made without much effort. The underground is very confusing. But there are a few events...
Fun : 2
Not very. In single player this map is pointless. One funny thing though, the elven wizards name is "Ellyanwyllnh". Try to pronounce that one... :)
