Relive the 1291 siege of Acre, playing as the Mamluk Sultanate, the attacker in this map. Acre (modern Akko) was a important port & trading city in the Crusader states. Destroying Acre would erase the last vestige of Crusader presence from the mainland Levant.

I played the map now :D
It is a a great natural design! But i would have loved if you would have given the AI a bit more starting gold or let the game play out a bit longer ,so that it would have been more of a challenge, while here you need to wait quite some time to give the AI a good start!

Well I didn't want to make it too hard... If I let the two wolfs finish their castle, their first invasion force would already be ready to roll. And between the two wolfs that can add up to something like 150 troops, which might wipe out the player if they're caught off guard...

i feel like you could have at lest given them a bit of an ahead start, because when i play this map serious, then i am just wiping the floor with the wolfs right from the start, coming in with ranged harassment units like fireballistae right away.

EDIT: I would love to see you include a version that is in your eyes 'hard to beat' in the upload, just so there is more to it :)
