(4)Lloyds Beacon, A 2vs2 map where allies spawn together under UMS
Post #1 Cardinalallin May 11 2012, 3:50 pm
A 2vs2 player map where allies spawn together under Use Map Settings.
1. Defeat screen only when you and your ally have both died.
2. Map is greyed out at the start of the game rather than blacked out, so the layout of bases and terrain is visible.
3. Slots for two observers.
4. Cover tiles. The green squares below the ramps create a 50% chance to miss a ranged attacks. Similar to darkswarm, projectiles are displaced so the point of impact is closer to the firing unit. Splash damage still affects units fully.
5. Peon Prison. Trap a worker for air stacks.

Ive uploaded Version 2.0 now.
Hi again. Indeed the green patch provides 50percent mis chance vs ranged attacks. The side bases and the 2/8 o clocks have had tweaks. I considered putting a ramp to 6/12 o clock with an egg wall but resisted this. I will use that layout in other maps so I wanted to keep this map with just the one exit area from the mains. A bit more teamwork and focus this way I hope. But it does cause balance issues. I definately dont wanna make th mid smaller though.
There are lots of thin chokes on this map and the expos are all tight i fully agree. Ive done this deliberatly though, and Im keeping an eye on it. The idea is that small immobile armies can defend vs bigger ones and spash damage is strong. ie lurkers vs rines, storm vs zerg and ofcourse tanks vs all unfortunately.
What do you think of the map now with the extra path out of the naturals, extra base and cleaner army movement through expansions?
Skin to bone, steel to rust, ash to ashes, dust to dust.
Thirds are quite difficult to hold onto. Naturals aren't too bad if you can hold the bridges, but there are a lot of ways in.
Muta micro is great fun gg, let me know who won.
I have mostly left SEN except for the Temple Siege 2 forum (hidden to most of you). I am available via PM still, and Skype as JackRCDF.
If it is important to you, you will find a way. Otherwise, you will find an excuse. -Unknown
Perhaps you shouldn't be on SEN as much, too...
Better than the iPad!
Yep. I did not expect that update since you usually make your maps, test them a little bit, and leave them as is lol.

Oh_Man -- If it wasn't for consoles forcing games to be exclusive to their console, I'd have no interest in consoles whatsoever.
Oh_Man -- Consoles are static software and static hardware. PC is the ultimate customisable machine.
KrayZee -- Call of Duty Ghosts is likely to be on the PC just like any other COD game. And yet they don't take advantage of the hardware in the PC.
KrayZee -- Crysis 1, 2 and 3, Battlefield 3, and Far Cry 3 are already on the Xbox 360. And they are all impressive of what they are able to do. Despite I don't like Battlefield 3's premium scam.
KrayZee -- The games that are announced so far, I'm getting Assassin's Creed IV, Battlefield 4, Destiny, Forza Motorsport 5, Quantum Break (Maybe), Thief, and Watch_Dogs. And other games once they are announced. It sucks that there's no backward compatibility.
KrayZee -- I own an Xbox 360, Wii U, and PlayStation 3. I'm glad that Xbox One will use 300,000 servers instead of 15,000 of an Xbox 360.
lil-Inferno -- Again, of course your $1000+ PC will be better than a $379 console
