Hi all this is the Preview Cinematic for Trade War, an upcomming four multiplayer map for AOM:TT for further details on the map please visit -
I have given an average mark here because of a few reasons. One was becuase there were many pauses were nothing was really happening, just people stationary or moving about and the camera was just laying still. It was not particularly exciting to watch, you could have used custom music or something else that would have grabbed me but i jut felt like i was watching for watchings sake.
There was nothing to critize about balance really. The camera tracks were all smooth and did not twist and swirl. Nice movement from track to track. Pitch levels were good no cut offs or dialogue errors. good work here.
It wasn't a particularly creative design. Many techniques used had been taken from other sources and there was nothing original. The port could have been spiced up with overlap techniques. The food tranportation to the boat was good but, without being too persistant, it is a similar idea to the "Legend of Captain Kidd" bringing to gold to the vaults.
Map Design: 3
I wouldn't say it was the worst map design i've seen but it was not much better really. You need to improve on eyecandy usage and overlap techniques. For the port you could have made it wooden and look more realistic rather than an odd piece of land. The Pyramid look rather out of place, use hills rather than flat terrain.
Generally, the story is intreging. It flows nicely and you can understand what is going on. However, to obtain full marks you could have added a bit more history to it to increase watchability aswell.
Overall, there are a fair amoun of improvments that are needed but it wasn't that bad really. I look forward to the contest to see whos map will be rated best bu i think you need to up your game a bit to make it more of a balanced fight
