This map has a very tiny story.
It goed like: there are 3 sisters. They had a good relation, but suddnly they broke up and now they are facing each other in an devastating war. But shouldn't they be more carefull?
This is a beatiful map especially if it is your first map. I hope you will make more maps soon. I am waiting for them ;)

I download all scenarios that are given 5.0's and at least have a look at them. Upon opening this one I found a map that didnt appear in any way to deserve a 5.0. Still I decided to load up AoW:SM (I havnt done so in ages and have a test run)
While this map isnt unplayable I found it less entertaining than the RMG.
I'd say less of a challenge than RMG. Balance is such a subjective term.
There is some creativity in the placement of units however this only looks like something in the Editor as the units wont stay where they were told. The landscape is rather bland. The RMG will offer far more visually acceptable terrain.
Map Design: 2
Again less than one would find using the RMG.
Read the intro to the map posted here, its about as good as it gets.
I would not have rated this map but the perfect 5.0 forced me to act. There are a few scenerios on AoW Heaven that deserve 5.0's and this is not one of them.
Not to discourage the author, map making is a difficult and rarely a rewarding experience. It can be quite hard to craft a map that would earn 4's or 5's but you'll know it when you get there!
