Deep in the Jungles of the Yucatan there was an evil king. This evil king demanded large payments from the barons around him. The barons have had enough of paying this outragrous sums to the kings, so now IT'S PAYBACK! This scenario is for 7 players and 1 computer. Player 1 gets to be the evil king, while players 2-7 are the barons. One might think, this is going to be a slaughter player 1 doesn't stand a chance. Well thats not quite true, the designer of this scenario has designed so
that its pretty evenly balanced.
I have a soft spot for people who design B&D's because they are my favourite type of multiplayer map. This scenario was pretty fun. It takes a lot of teamwork for the barons to overcome the king and the king needs to act fast to stop the barons, before they become to strong and take over his kingdom.
-I felt that the bases for players 2-7 were a little small, it would be better if they had a bit more space
Although the balance in this scenario was pretty good, I felt that it could have been better. Player 1 in my opinion should have been a bit sronger and players 2-7 a bit weaker, just to balance it out more. I also felt that some of the 2-7 players got more stuff than the other 2-7. They probably should have started off with the same stuff.
-Evening the players out would really help this scenario
This scenario is pretty creative. I have not seem something like this before, which really suprises me because it's a really simple concept. Oh well!
-I really can't tell you how to be creative thats up to you
Map Design 4
I really liked the design of this map it looked really good. I though the kings fortress on top of the hill looked pretty good and it would be difficult to beat. I especially liked the water in this map, it was really well done. The different types of water were mixed very well to give a tropical look you would expect in the Yucatan. I also though that the beaches looked really good too!
Map design Improvements:
-This scenario really could have used some more eye candy that is what it was really lacking
The Instructions were pretty clear and short (something that is always good). It might have been nice to have a more detailed story , but what it had was good enough.
-There could have been more of a story
-Some more hints and scouting information also would have helped
Over all this was a good scenario. I would recomend downloading it if you want to play a challenging game, for either side.
