This map is inspired by 'Vantage Point' in Stronghold Legends. I made it for entry to the 2020 Contest to win Stronghold Warlords.

It's a really nice map that is great for quick and fast-moving skirmishes. The limited space meant you were constantly in attack from other players and it was a struggle to place some buildings, particularly on Stone and Iron, because of this close proximity.

However this also works in your favour when you place ranged units on your own hill, because you can target other players as well. The use of bridges was nice, but it makes it a bit easy to defend.

I get that you're trying to make narrow passes, but I think it made it a bit too easy because it meant that you could just block them off with gatehouses etc, and prevent enemy troops from entering your estate. It's a really nice map in its own feat, and I think it's a great replication of an existing map in Legends.

Given the map size, I think the terrain detailing was just about right, but more work could possibly have been spent on the textures.
