Four human players Assault Minas Tirith. Game is best with three or four humans, with two humans it is very hard, and one human only, hardly beatable.
Computer must be in Minas Tirith.

Gameplay:
Build an army and Siege Minas Tirith, if gate or any wall is destroyed the enemy will pour out like water. So better set an army is required, but note that the more you wait the more upgrades enemy units have.
Plan...then attack.


Special Features:
-Rohan arrive after 30 minutes from the start of game.
-Three levels full of trebuchets.
-Three levels of Minas Tirith accesible.
-Movie/Book like Minas Tirith; every level has one stairs to the next.
-Enemy reinforcment arrive at random.
-Units have their real colour.

yay for giving the defenders a chance by adding reinforcements.

the front gate is broken far to easily, if you buffed the gates HP and added supporting trebs on both sides it would be more well balanced, also being able to attack the wall is kind of cheap since you can break in at the far left and take the stairs to the next level with little to oppose you

the 3rd level is well done

there is very little space for the attackers to make resource producers, you should have made a little more room.

nothing needs to be said

Additional Comments:
It is not a very hard map to beat, provided that you don't start as the top attacker, I beat it solo.

Thanks for your rating; and I wonder how you won solo...?!

There are about 2 out-of-map outposts for extra money, I looked at that.
The far left wall I made it so you can flank them (as it sometimes [depending on your skill] cant attack and hold the main gate and move east and west same time).
I didnt add trebs at the first level or else they will destroy nearly most of the buildings you build even near ure castle
dk123 Thank you for your map. Solo is bit extremely easy if you use Elf. There Silver horn arrow kill those oak breaker very easy and the eagle can bring all the structure down easy after use those power to bring down all the archery structure.

Really this was a thoughtful and great piece of work. Love all the little touches like the hero work and the reinforcements that make the game interest well past the usual "pivot point."

Additional Comments:
Have played 10-15 times with all the different races and difficulty settings - sometimes having allies and sometimes solo. I think about 5 times solo in total. I'm amused by the designer expressing surprise that anyone could do this solo - it's easy simply because you have so much time to yourself at the beginning (20 minutes or so?) - this is enough time to cover all the outside space with farms and build 8 fully upgraded fortresses and a large fully upgraded army. When the Rohirrim finally do come, they are broken easily by the fortresses, all of which will fire catapaults at once... LOL Then you can use the same fortresses to contain the outpouring from the city when it comes. Because of all the combat going on, you can get a large number of spells quickly and use them repeatedly to maximum effect. With Golem's ring too, translated into Sauron or Galadriel, you're almost invincible.
colablikje i started the game but half way i needed to go :D
i gave minas tirith 5 hour then attacked him XD
i was dead big time
keyur The best MT assault battle.
If I assault with 3 AI helping me only nearest ally to castle help in assault. Rest of them just wait and reserve their army at base. I have 1.6 patch.

I soloed it without using any glitch. With glitch its not fun at all. I tried all factions and really enjoyed this map with proper assault like in movie.

what is glitch in this map? Dont break main gate. You can clear bottom floor with siege like trebuchets. Make castle and garrison towers near by gate. Few archers in towers can increase your power points and when you get power like earthquake use it on 2nd floor gate so army of dead will arrive. Let them do what ever they wanna do. Still dont break main gate.Rohan allies will arrive soon and with ring power they dont have chance. Meh screw ring power just 3-4 attack trolls or pikemen can handle them in a minute. Break down all trebuchets with flying unit like Nazgul, Dragon Lord, Eagle etc. Use Last tire powers like dragon strike, Balrog and flying units clear all stuff. See you dont need to start with breaking the main gate.

Grimdro Bug report for some reason in this map my uruk hero is weirdly grey looks like a grey ghost wit bits of armor and when rohirim arrive it lags to hell wont have it, :( . it may be cuz I edited a file while it was open checkin but the odd hero color was prior. Other than that its great I love how they defend the gat & it isn't a 1 2 3 combo kill for 1 troll like in main map :( I tried scriptin it to close and repair if broken didn't work :( check out my mod its Shelob's spawn scurge and epic siege, it gives evil factions walls and sauron statue..read its desript on its page lol .
mrcrimson is there zoom problem with the map
i love the map, not a great player to review it
but my map is incredibly zoomed in, cant see the large view, gets very hard to control large armies
is there a problem on my end
