Who shall win this battle between the titans of magical warlocks?
Will it be the lightning weilving Sorcerers led by Zhuge Liang the chinese tactical genius?
Or will the evil Dark Mages led by Sima Yi’s tricks and fiendish allies? His magical fan of flames can deal a considerable amount of damage. He’s quick with the aid of the power to ride on a magical cloud; will he take control of China?
Modpack by Ballista_Turtle a.k.a Jiangjun Izzy
Replaces the Conquistador and The Bombard cannon with totally new units!
Since there are really no set parameters for modpack judging, here is what I judged it on:
The idea of this modpack is fresh. It's not boring, and the
creativeness of the designer is quite obvious when you see those enegry balls flying.
[b]Playability/Overall Look in the Game[/b]
The feel of the unit is nice. The look of it is clean against the AoK background, it isn't tacky or Although he can't prevent it, the Cannon Galleon and Turtle Ship will fire energy balls, as well as hand cannoneers. However, there is no way he could have prevented this; in addition, it will be used in a campaign which probably won't have this problem.
The Anchors aren't quite perfect on the Chinese Dark Mages. It bounces a bit, which is a large problem with all unit mods. However, I am giving the creator the benefit of the doubt, because since the Dark Mage is on a cloud, it would be understandable if the cloud moves. The mod has its good points, though. For example, it has its own sound set, which is supurb. The sounds fit well with the units, and certainly add to the feel. This is one of the few modpacks that actually includes sound.
Overall, this mod gets a well-deserved 5. I hope this encourages the designer to continue his pursuit in the field.

Sorry but I don't think this deserves a 5.0. It's good but Ballista should make his own graphics One of the units changed is simply an enlarged janissary on a white thing. it should deserve a little lower...
