The Battle of Kosovo, 1389.

The Serbs under Tzar Stefan Uros Dusan had control of Serbia, Macedonia and most of Greece, this was there golden age. Stefan had plans to hold off the invading Turks, which he would of done successfully, and conquer the Byzantine capital, Constantinople, he was also being offered, an army, by the Pope, to crusade against the Turks and Byzantines.
But unfortunately he died in 1355, where he was succeeded by his young son,Uros, who did not know how to hold together his father's large empire. At the time Serbia was under threat of a Turkish invasion.
Young Uros was killed in 1371 and Vukasin Mrnjacevic claimed the throne. Once the Ottomans had control of Bulgaria, it became a vassal state of the Turks, which meant that they had to do military service in the Ottoman army.
The Ottomans marched deeper into Serbian territory where they had control of the Maritsa Valley. King Vukasin Mrnjacevic gathered his troops of 70 000 men, he marched toward the Turks who suprised attacked them and massacred the Serbs, including Vukasin himself. These events left Lazar Hrebeljanovic to be crowned King.
Under Murad I, the Turks marched deeper into Serbia, and reached one of the most importnant crossroads in the Balkan Peninsula, 'Kosovo', there they met Lazar's army and there was fought one of the most important battles of Serbian history...

Playability: 4
"gauge of how much fun you had playing this particular scenario."

It seemed to get better the more times I watched it, I suggest watching it several times ;)

Balance: 5
EDIT: "Automaticaly gets a 5"

Creativity: 5
I like the creativeness in parts like where the Sultan gets killed, and the final part where they get surrounded and the way you presented the fact that they think they've been deserted etc.

Map Design: 4
Could have had more variety I think... But it was well spread out and was used for its purpose

Story/Instructions: 5
Very interesting story, like I said, I never heard of this battle before, maybe you told too much of the story, but that can't really be a bad thing ;)

Additional Comments:
Over all, well done, and good luck in the comp.! :)

Darkjedilarry the battle wasnt very interesting, and IMHO, in cutscenes, there should be no hp beefs cause it just means more time before we can get along with it. also, after all of the serbs dudes were killed, for me, nothing happened but the heroes just slashing away at the enemy, apparently cause its a one way thing. idk what was wrong...

Nice cut-scene, a little rough under the edges, but maybe that will be fixed in the new one. ;)
Dark_Reign Larry, the HP bonus was on purpose because of the ending of the Cut-scene were they get surrounded... Otherwise he would have had to create all those units again through Triggers...

Larry, if I never used the HP trick, I would of never been able to do the last stand, beacause all of the units would be dead, but thanks for the "IMHO" ;).
VonCorgath That was an enjoyable cut-scene ByZaN. I actually found it got better the more times I watched it :)
I also thought the battle very good, and the music was aptly suited to each scene. Well done!
I loved the twist with Milos and the Turkish King, good job. All the best!

Great work ByZaN! I really enjoyed watching it! The style was pretty unique to me. I'
ve never watched anything like it. I've played a lot of Big Battle scenes, but they only take part ON the battlefield, never aside it. And the way people speaked was great and the music atmospheric. Too bad it stops into nothing in some points, like a small empty space with no music between two songs
Also, the dialogue passed by very fast for me. I didn't want to slow it down to ruin the music and gameplay, so I had a hard time to read everything.
But except from this, the cut-scene was great.
Very good job!
