What this is is a scenario showing the Last Alliance. You are the Allied forces against Mordor. To play, you MUST have METC. Otherwise the people won't show up properly. Instructions are in the scenario. Please download it and rate it! And just so you know, this is thee first scenario I have created and I hope you'll go easy! It's also the first of a series of scenarios based completely on Lord of the Rings. Thanks for downloading and please give any comments you have!
Reasonable.... You used some strategy and had some fun. Got to play through hole thing and I suppose has a small amount of replay value
Also reasonable.... Nearly equal units, although you should be able to strategically get passed this scenario easily
Nothing Creative. No renaming, nothing.
Map Design: 1
No map design. Sorry if you spent a while placing over 1000's units and stuff down but really no eyecandy or anything
None. Story....? Didn't see any. Maybe a real LOTR fan would recognize something. Instructions....? Barely any... Enough for basic playing
Additional Comments: Really just slapped down massive fixed force. Sorry about the poor ratings but I think you might be getting somewhere and need a little constructive critism. Keep at it :).
EDIT : Would like to add its a good start. Sorry again for the critical review.... I hope you continue producing scenarios though.

Well yes, the review does not sound good. Still KingElk pointed out the strong and weak points.
Questionable is probably the creativity rating. However, that is the second most subjective category to rate and seldom an issue for the moderator. You could mention the custom made AI 'Always attack' and the use of METC as creative. On the other hand, you could reason that the AI does not do any good for balance and playability more on the contrary and METC cannot heal the map in this case. So you can also ignore these elements as KingElk did, but quite harsh as rating, he could give a 2.0, same for the map either 1.0 or 2.0. I had the map on 2.0- and creativity on 2.0, the same for story/instructions.
Nevertheless, my overall rating would be also 2.0 as I had playability and balance on 2.0+, a boring rating sequence of 5 x 2.0. KingElk approach suits the scenario probably better by pointing out the weaknesses and strong points uncompromising.

I agree, it isn't that good. But then again, it is my first try at ever making a scenario. I'm trying to think of ways to make it better and will hopefully release an update soon. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Sorry I tried to say that it was a tough review.... I suppose creative could have been upped with AI but I remain firm that Map is 1.0 because of the ""Place and Play"" design.
EDIT: Suggestions : First off... check out some other fixed force and see how they play out with mass units. For story/instructions try thinking up a story I'm sure you could get something. Map is easy to repair, check out map design tips in scenario's, forums, etc. OR think up some different mapping. Wherever there is a weakness mentioned see if you can bring it up a notch. Hope to see an update!

Very Nice... one thing though. I am a really big fan of the lotr books, however i have only watched the second movie, so maybe they changed it, But its supposed to be Elendil and Gil-Galad Who beat sauron.
And then isildur cuts the ring from sauron's finger
