2 Samuel 20

Author File Description
File Details
Difficulty: Mod-Hard
This level follows the historical account of Joab and Abishai and they hunt down Sheba son of Bicri. You must lead the biblical heroes Joab and Abishai and the combined might of King Davids private army, the Kerethites and the Pelethites the the wise city of Abel Beth Maacah in their pursuit for the rebel Sheba.

This is my third attempt at using the EE and my first EE map that I have submitted. I have upped my personal level of scenario design quite significantly. I would say that this is the best looking map that I have produced and I believe that it would score highly when someone reviews it.

Updated: fixed the instructions so that there is less interpretation problems.

Wow Helelix! congratulations, man! This looks pretty good!

In my opinion, this deserves at least a 4.0 or even more!:)

Awesome map design :).
I think I'll let someone else review it.

MrCheeze Very good! (details later)

BUT! Problems! (spoilers)
- The instructions are very clear that the bowman is at the east, and yet he is actually at the other end of the city.
- They're also clear about the fact that you can't take troops into the city - but you need to to destroy the barracks!
- The barracks in the corner of the city is misleading - it makes it seem like there should be a second barracks in the city itself to destroy, when actually both of the ones you need to kill are in the entrance.

I think I'll wait until these are fixed to review, to avoid deduction of the Instructions and Playability scores.

whoops! just thinking about I think that your right about the bowman being in the east. Obviously my orientation was incorrect when describing its location.

I currently can't check my scenario tonight because my time limit has expired, but I do believe that I mentioned that the troops can't enter the city proper and that I state that the barracks aren't in the city proper. There kinda in the courtyard.

And finally I think that the instructions given state that you must destroy all three barracks but you've put doubt into my mind so I'll check it in the morning.

But I'll resubmit it with some better looking terrain (I missed a bit of stuff that I could have put in) and I'll make it harder as I can win the siege with 2 hoplite and the 2 bilista's (which are all given).
MrCheeze You were right about the city proper stuff - I just misunderstood because I read the instructions before I knew where the barracks actually were.

The instructions mention a barracks in the courtyard - is that supposed to mean the one where that bad guy is? If so you should add "as well as the ones in the entrance".

Updated instructions so now it can be reviewed.
MrCheeze But the revised instructions still say to only destroy one barracks, updating the first instructions doesn't really help for that.

the instructions say:
-Destroy their barracks to the north
and then the following instruction says:
-Siege Abel Beth Maacah and destroy the defending Berite army and then destroy the TWO barracks behind the city walls.

I don't see what the problem is.

I've played through half of it. Very nice, when I get time to finish I will review.
MrCheeze Look at the revised instructions in the hints - you'll see what I mean.
