THE BATTLE OF STIRLING BRIDGE

It's my entry for the 9th MGC . The game is based on a battle between William Wallace and English forces .


*Features
-it's a short strategy battle
-there are two english waves
-I put some conditions for each difficulty
-some realistic things like burning when touch fire or falling of the bridge

*History

The Battle of Stirling Bridge was a shattering defeat for the English: it showed that under certain circumstances, where the conditions were right, infantry could be superior to cavalry. It was to be some time, though, before this lesson was fully absorbed.

Scottish casualties in the battle are unrecorded, with the exception of Andrew Moray. He appears to have been injured in the battle and died of his injuries around November.

Wallace went on to lead a destructive raid into northern England which did little to advance the Scots objectives, whatever effect it had on the morale in his army. By March 1298 he had emerged as Guardian of Scotland. His glory was brief for King Edward himself was coming north from Flanders. The two men finally met up on the field of Falkirk in the summer of 1298, where Wallace was defeated.

*Author's comment

It was an own idea . I played the AoE II tutorial , then I had a idea to make a "small improvement" and to "minimize" the original scenario .
I don't want a review for this entry . It will be reviewed at the final of competition .
The first version hadn't many details , so I added something .

It was very simple and easy.

If you're not aware, the enemy longbowmen are unloaded on the shore that has no way out, it's blocked off by a rock.

The player can cheat and block off the enemy spawn point.

If you want a better score for the competition:
Apply more eye-candy and terrain.
Make it harder/add in difficulties.
Fill in your victory/loss/objectives/hints/scouts.
Poke An enjoyable game, however it was easy to win just by putting my people there and waiting...

This game would be good if it was a bit harder.

Also, it could also benefit if you could make units, and earning resources with which to make them when you kill powerful units.

Thank you DTrungle and Poke !
You help me even if you ar in the contest .
I should make the british soldiers have more HP and ATT ; or make the scottish reinforcements disappear .
Also I have a problem when I set the difficult condition . The trigger is activated without requiring the difficult .
E.g.:

Trigger0
Obj. off
Start on
Loop off

Condition 0
-Difficult Hard
Effect 0
-remove crossbows
Effect 1
-remove men-at-arms

It activates when I'm playing on each difficult

Check the FAQ in Scenario Design, it's there.
TheLaughingMule You need triggers that detect easy and moderate that disable the hard trigger. As was said previously, check out the Scenario Design Forum FAQ.
jburnell Good game + good ideas, however, you may want to set a trigger so that the units die when they fall off the bridge, as I think that is what is supposed to have happened in history. Of course, this is just a suggestion, so feel free to ignore it.
In my "Compilation of Single Player Games" I also made a rather ridiculous version of this story, so perhaps that could give you some ideas as to what I mean in case I haven't explained it well.

It's a fair design, but there's not much in the way of strategy in this, and aside from a few losses the game is rather easy and simple.

Historically, the Scottish defeated the English forces because of the newly employed 'schiltron', whereby the Scots would form up spear ranks and face off the English heavy cavalry, the back bone of the English army. Once trouble arose here, the English commanders grew impatient and started sending their troops across, more and more to force a favourable resolution in the battle. This didn't work however, and the bridge soon collapsed from the weight of the men crossing the bridge.
