Playability: 1
The 'fun' one has playing scenarios always differs from person to person. However, I do not believe anyone would enjoy this scenario. The author has placed large stacks of Teutonic Knights and champions on a map that would perhaps be better used for a football field than a battle. Plain grass with almost no variation whatsoever made me close the game pretty soon after starting.

Balance: 1
Both the human and the first CPU player start off with a huge stack of Teutonic Knights. As both players have roughly the same number of units, the fight should have been fair. However, as the other CPU player has large numbers of Champions, the scenario quickly derails into a micro-managing fest, luring those champions to their death one by one.

Creativity: 1
As mentioned in the playability-section, the scenario displayed little or no creativity. The majority of the map was plain grass1. This monotonicity was only broken up by large patches of other sorts of terrain. Overall the map seemed considerably worse than a random map.

Map Design: 1
The author has probably spent little time designing the map. Aside from the huge square stacks of units, the map featured huge square pieces of terrain on a map of grass1.

Story/Instructions: 1
No story or instructions were given.

Additional Comments:
From time to time people submit works to the Blacksmith that are unfinished or in need of some serious polishing. This scenario is not one of those works. It is utterly unbalanced and lacking in every department. I have advised the author on many occasions to play some of the higher-rated works or to visit the scenario design-section of the forums. Unfortunately, it seems as though he has ignored this piece of advise time and time again. I can only hope for him to realize though perhaps fun for him to create, these scenarios are not fun for others to play.
I do not recommend downloading this scenario.

I have to disagree with you there mate. The new file is only slightly better than the previous one. It's a shame you have done little with the suggestions I made in my review. Your 'huge improvements' consist of adding some more players, all with huge armies similar to the ones of the old players. (Units placed in a large rectangular shape.) You have also added enormous resources to the map, keeping with the basic design of large masses of objects.

Please read my review again instead of asking for suggestions. They are already there.
