Fairly even distances for ground/cliff/air units, perfectly symmetrical, awful terrain. For 1v1, 2v2, FFA.

Mains still seem a bit too small,
And the map in general is too tight.

Also, the expos in the middle have awkwardly placed minerals again. Please just stop putting minerals in the middle of the field..

Also, what are the junks surrounding the map? Makes the map look strangely interesting.
I think you could've used the space to put some Island Expos.

Concept wize, it isn't so great, as the map is too tight overall... huge disadavantage for melee units D:
I liked Effluvia better.. .. that map can also use some island expos :D.

The mains are huge. This is an 'epic' size map.

It has a greater average openness than any Blizz made SC2 map. So no, it's not too tight.

I don't care if you think they're awkwardly placed. I put them that way for a reason - So those expos are hard to defend from drops on the high ground islands.

They're building doodads. It's a city tilesets.

What the fuck is it with you an island expos? They're massively imba for Terran.

Well, the building doodads can be placed in a better order.
I can't tell if it's epic size, cause your images are always so small.

They aren't imbalanced for terran if you put some destructible objects there. No need to start raging O.o
It'd give the map more strategy.

meh @ your reason for placing the minerals that way.

Yes they are, but regardless, that's not an island expo anymore.

Huh? I don't understand your argument here...

If you put destructible Objects there, the only Advantage terran has is the ability to float a CC, and start chipping at it with 5 SCV's.
For real games, it'd be wise to not waste time like that until you have air units, vikings, or dropships to destroy the rocks and make room for the CC.
This puts Terran at about the same time as the other races. ... Unless i'm forgetting something.

Also, how is it not an island expo? Island expos can't be reached by ground, that's the criteria.. Are there other criteria that i'm not aware of??? It seems quite straight forward..
