Map Design2.0
This being your first file, I will not judge it too harsh and I hope my tips will help you with your next map.
I will put a 1 before the part in each directory for scenario one, 2 for two etc.

Playability: 2-
1. Although the map was very simple it somewhat enjoyed it, possibly seeing the potential it has.
2. Walk to a spot and bring a relic inside a monastery once there. This one was the most dull, try to add some different enemies and work on the map design.
3. Defend the spot.. except the enemy never attacks apart from the units who go autoscouting.

Balance: 1+
1.There wasn't much of a balance because the player starts with 4 Elite Jannisary's whilst the enemy consists of non-agressive militia's. Somewhere you get an additional 6 Jannisary's and at 'the end' there are 4 Woad raiders defending a gate.
2 + 3... Militia's only? Come on!

Creativity: 3-
Put in another few hours of work, maybe learn to use triggers properly or ask someone to do it for you and the map will be lots better. Nothing too special has been done in one of 3 scenario's.

Map Design: 2+
The map design wasn't very nice, no elevations, no mixed ground types or trees, but the author did put an effort into it. He paved the cities and where you get the reinforcements he placed a lake. In my opinion the buildings were'nt placed very nice, all with space around them making it impossible to get cornered by 'the zombies'.

Story/Instructions: 1+
The story and instructions did'nt change from the beginning and you could'nt win the game, the instructions available were clear though.
There was no storyline apart from the objective: escape the zombies.
The third map lacked any instructions at all.

Additional Comments:
For the author: You put in some effort, and it is'nt too bad for a first one. Learn some skills by reading tutorials or ask some experienced editors for tips and tricks. For instance, if there was some text, or some eyecandy it would've been better. Keep up the enthusiasm and make a better map out of it ;)

In closing: You might download this to help the author with some feedback, for a 'first time' map and a map without triggers this is a good effort.
