There's nothing REALLY wrong with the map in this regard, but I gave it a 3.5 because it thought there were NOT enough resources. Seriously. All of the maps come with about 5 gold mines per person, which will last you anywhere up to 5 minutes (if you start in Iron Age, which I suggest). There's also no stone (which may not always be a bad thing).
It's perfectly balanced. Perfectly. Everyone starts off with EXACTLY the same resources, position, etc. which is good. Being an MP map, it's hard to say more because there is no AI to play against. All I'm saying is that your player colour won't give you an advantage.
This is just a copy of a map from AoK. No rating. The 4 is to average things out.
Map Design: 3.5
Nothing particularly special about it, again because it's an MP map. I would've like to see some gaps in the walls, and the cliffs look a bit out of place and odd, but you probably won't notice while playing.
There isn't one. You don't need a story to battle your friends =D
Download this if you ever played Arena in AoK. It brings back LOTS of fond memories, and it is a lot of fun (as always).

Fun, easy to play perfect for people who build up (like me), You start of like the Areana map from AOK, With Scout, Villies, TC and of course anti-rushing devices!(walls)
You all start of the same, same resources, same setting, completly balanced.
As what g1ggy a.k.a "gigaz01d" said its just a copy of a map from AOK, 4 is just to average it out.
Map Design: 3.3
The map design I gave 3.3 because you don't usually look at eye-candy at MP maps, but a few easily done eye-candy like apple trees, a little swamp would be great, but as I said you probably won't look at a map while your rushing friend broke through your walls and start rushing you.
No story, I don't need a story to tell how much I get owned by my friend who rushes...
Good map for non-rushers (like me) Its a very balanced map, Which is great for playing against your friends.
