This is easy to play but the speed on build and research is WAY too fast. I was murdering this guy and he made too many men in his base cut it down. So dont put soo much speed on it.
Good Balance here. you got everything in the right proportions for a 3 just try to make it much better for it to get a 4 or even a 5.
Many Many sea maps have been made were you fight. This is different though as you get men popping up. That was a good idea but try think of something more creative.
Map Design: 2
Not much eye candy. All you put was 2 islands which were in bade locations. 1 between player 2 and 4 i believe and the other in the middle. Try puttin trees, fish, whales anything to make it look nicer.
NOT really any story here. Basically fight till death. so maybe you could put a story line in like this: "Many People Have Tried To Claim This Sea As It Contains A Rich Wealth".
Additional Comments: Plus i use Bellerophon and Ouranos in my maps. Its ok if you use Bellerophon cause i use two things to make it more fun. And for everyone who wants to know i came to more than 3 lines in the writing part.
