A 2vs2 player map where allies spawn together under Use Map Settings.

Features:
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.

Again, because of the tight entrances, this favors terran.
I don't know what that weird square green patch is for ...?
The side bases are a bit too tight as well, and the nat that's at the side of the map at 8 and 2 o'clock are really ugly and feels forced in.

I think a third ramp that leads to the 2nd bridge would balance things out.
Also, the middle can be made smaller so more space can be given elsewhere.

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?

>be faceless void >mfw I have no face

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 :D gg, let me know who won.

Yep. I did not expect that update since you usually make your maps, test them a little bit, and leave them as is lol.
