Hi, it has been years since I started on my ASOIAF universe map, Roberts Rebellion, and I would like to showcase and share it with you!
Roberts Rebellion is a competitive 5vs5 spawn based strategy in the spirit of maps like Battle for Middle Earth (By Lord_Turin and NWG_Jonas).
We have spent a lot of time making a Westeros with beautiful castles, terrain, and your favorite heroes from that era.
The map is available to host on makemehost.com and entgaming.net, as "RobertsRebellionVx.xx", e.g. "RobertsRebellionV1.19"
The teams are: Rebel forces - Lannister, Arryn, Tully, Baratheon and Stark. Royal Forces - Targaryen, Martell, Tyrell, Kingsguard and Greyjoy.
Each faction starts out with an army of units, some heroes, an a number of bases that regularly spawns reinforcements to your army.
The players must use these and cooperate with his team to defeat the enemy heroes/armies/bases.
Players must take care since heroes are not revivable and bases not rebuildable.
Gold and lumber is received regularly and can be used to upgrade bases for long term benefits, hire mercenaries to quickly bolster your army, build towers for defense.
The map contains Westeros, from south of the wall and down.
The terrain is open to avoid chokes, to allow freedom of movement and huge battles with many players at a time.
Hotkeys to spells and abilities are Q, W, E, R, and a very few at T. Q, is generally support spells. Almost all aoe dmg spells are W. All heals except some army heal spells is E. All stuns are R. Keys are placed on your hero so that the spells map to your keyboard (except T).

The Story of Roberts Rebellion:
Roberts Rebellion is an event in the universe of "A Song of Ice and Fire" (ASOIAF) by GRRM, and the HBO production "Game of Thrones" based on ASOIAF.
This rebellion is set 15 years before the first book of ASOIAF called "A Game of Thrones". The rebellion is also known as the "War of the Usurper" but as the other name indicates, it is about a rebellion lead by Robert Baratheon, Eddard Stark and Jon Arryn, against the infamous "Mad King" Aerys Targaryen II and his family. You can read more about the rebellion here Robert's Rebellion There is not really any spoilers on this page but beware if you go other places on that wiki.
You can also see the HBO produced graphical story's about the event in a point of view as linked:
There are more videos from more povs if you look.
Q: Why is Lannisters with Rebel forces? - A: Lannisters eventually joined the rebel forces in throwing down the Targaryens. Also to avoid complicated team mechanics.
Q: Why is Greyjoys with Royal forces? - A: It is not an unrealistic scenario, yet it is much due to trying to get a fair simple 5v5 team setup without complicated team mechanics.
Q: Why is the Targaryen holdings split into two? - A: There is too many heroes and holdings to have for one player, and also to make it fair simple 5v5 team setup.
Q: Why are your spells setup as QWER? - A: Because it is an amazing hotkey standard used by games like LoL and Dota. The system has a really good correspondence between the buttons on your screen to the buttons on your keyboard, creating a clear mental model of what you want to accomplish, and making it easier to learn, remember and use.
Q: Why should I play this over alternative ASOIAF maps? - A: Roberts Rebellion is competitively oriented on balance, hero-army micro and team efforts. It has beautiful castles, terrain and much freedom of movement.
