As I've said before, the last time I was active here was 4 or 5 years ago, that's also the last time I was real active in map making. Anyway, back then, you were flamed if your maps were symmetrical or used weird terrain except for aesthetic purposes. I was looking through the maps here and they are all symmetrical. I also noticed a lot of Xel' Naga structures blocking paths. I looked through stickies and I found reasons for symmetrical maps but not really why or when the mentality shifted, I didn't find anything on the terrain or temples though. I figure I better post this before I post a map and invoke the wrath of that one guy for doing something wrong. Thanks.

Symmetrical maps are more balanced, basically. It's possible to balance an unsymmetrical map but harder.

As for ramps being blocked, that's for adding concept to the map/making it less boring. It means it takes longer before an expo is taken or can be used for defence.

Don't even think of posting a melee here without reading every word in all of these topics.

jjf28 shouted: the map is playable on both 1.16.1 and SC:R, this would just be straight up unprotecting
OK, I have 1 more question - are you using 32 bit SC:R or 64 bit ? In game settings there's an option to switch to 32, is it checked? I just tried hosting the map with 64-bit SC:R and it failed... I ticked the option to use 32 bit SC:R => it worked and map was hosted. So I guess the issue still exists for 64 bit SC:R ? I also tried calling a friend and he couldn't see the map when he entered the lobby. Weird, I might have to report this to Blizzard?
