Version 1.0 was released on 7/17/2019, and quickly updated to V1.4 the next day!

My Story: (7/17/2019)
Ah yes, CnM Ruins. It was a relatively unknown map back in 2009, only hosted a few times and never again the following years. Only the few chosen ones were lucky enough to play this map back then, and I was one of them, and probably a friend of mine named Machinist because he has the map too. Who was the author of this map? It was none other than Verynoname aka The36897thHydra, his first ever CnM creation. His original map was only in beta, half finished and less. It seemed like Verynoname shortly abandoned this map afterwards. How do I know this? It was not until 2017 when Verynoname came back to StarCraft and I had to chance to talk and play with him! So one time, we were gaming on his V0.9 CnM Ruins map, his latest beta, and I asked him if he would ever finish this map. Verynoname considered it, but this never came to fruition. Around August-September 2017 probably, Verynoname quit StarCraft and was never active again. On May 24, 2018, I emailed him because I didn't have his latest edit of CnM Cheeser, which was 6.0.2 and I only had 6.0.1. He soon replied and gave me all of his CnM Cheeser versions that he had, and that he had "a new job as an IT technician alongside attending college". So there you go, Verynoname moved on from SCR and probably won't come back anytime soon, and probably never. Never saw him online since 2018 and now as of 7/18/2019.

Because of this, I decided to update his CnM Ruins map from V0.9 to V1.0, from beta to finished, from 2009 to 2019. A decade later, this map finally got the update it deserved, in my own perspective of course on how it would have been updated. I try to mimic the style of this map when editing, as if I was Verynoname himself updating the map. I wanted to give this CnM map a uniqueness of its own, instead of being just another CnM map. As for balancing, I stuck to the traditional ways and balance of this map mostly with only a few changes. Mostly, I added more stuff, which added to the balance. I didn't really focus hard on the balancing of this map, but more of the uniqueness, style, and recreation of the nonexistent V1.0. Since it was "CnM Ruins" I decided to throw in a bunch of doodads of ancient ruins on water as decoration. Now finished, I think I have such a map, V1.0, the map that never was!

Enjoy my take on what this map could have truly been if it was continued, worked on, and updated!

Kolokol -- Okay, are both of these games referencing something else here? If so, what are they both referencing?
[05:45 am]
Kolokol -- So I am looking at the custom campaign "Legacy of the Confederation". One of the missions has references such as "Doctor Halsey" and "Noble", but the campaign was made almost 10 years before Halo Reach.
