300 - Battle of Thermopylae

Author File Description

Difficulty: Moderate
It's a cool scenario.
Movie 300 with exactly 300 hoplites fighting against loads of persians. The walls between the battle field mean that is separating the first comming second comming and third and last comming. Please use only the archers in the third comming, in order to be more accurate. You can use the cheats reveal map and no fog.
Take the walls of the arcadians (broad Swordsman) in the second battle in order to be more accurate too.
player 1(you) - Persians(persian)
player 2- Spartans(Greek)
Have big fun!!

Now I hate to admit it, but I had fun playing this particular scenario for a while. This is pretty much Themopylae, one of the many Thermopylae scenarios in the granary. This one isn't really any better than the others, and like the others is more or less just mass units going at it. Whats interesting is that 300 hoplites managed to kill 3400 of my army... Pretty crazy. This is fun to watch but doesn't have anything else that you can do with it.

You actually could lose this scenario if you only threw small groups at the enemy at a time. The hoplites slaughter a large portion of your army, although the scythes will save the day in the end. Really no strategy, just keep throwing out troops.

Creativity: 1.2
+ .1 for movie adaption, and + .1 for putting it on the Persian side, never seen that before. Other than that, nothing to see here.

Map Design: 1.2
Some cliffs, a defined coastline, a few hills, and desert. Pretty boring stuff.

Story/Instructions: 1
Nothing.

Additional Comments: Nah. One too many of these scenarios in the granary...
