Made this a while ago, only just worked out how to get the JPEG haha.

It took me about 30 mins when I was bored, didn't really do anything to balance it or whatever, so let me know what you guys think. Plays alright imo.

nazi!!!

Most obvious swastica ever.
We should make a contest for that.

Mirrored, though ;)

gas issue, too tight, asymmetrical nats, imba nat choke, too hard 3rd gas, wasted space, zerg in trouble, can't pvz wall choke, too easily harrassable expoes, squarish.

Let's map like it's 1933!
The_Iowa_Contact
Lol I was bored and the swastika thing wasnt intentional believe it or not...

And no it isn't mirrored, I made this in the original editor before I got the stardraft or whatever you call it.
spinesheath
The swastica is mirrored...
The_Iowa_Contact
No it isn't. Did it normally.

Actually I think if you look close enough, the exps are uneven in size anyway.

Is anyone actually gonna have a game and see how it plays? Everyone's bitching about the nazi thing and everything else but has anyone actually played yet?

The replay I uploaded was a fairly good back and forth game, but then neither me or Coultard play much online so we're obviously not goin to be as skilled as some people.
Freakling
It is mirrored - that is it is a "swastika" but strictly speaking not a "Hakenkreuz".
And the reason why no one is going to write about anything else is that there is nothing else of interest. Mybe it is not like 1933 but certainly like 1998.

You should take a look at other newer maps on this site and people's comments about them to understand.

EDIT: I just realized that JungleTerrain already explained to you why this is bad. See above!

For fuck sake it isn't mirrored dammit!! Haha.

I don't really have the time or patience to make all the fancy ass maps like you guys do, maybe when I get more time...

GMCS anyone? So I can actually fix some of this shit?

You fuckers are getting docket entries I shit you not.

Okay you want a comment on your map, here you have one:
Sorry to say this but your map is totaly unplayable.
Fucked up mains, shitty naturals crapy layout etc. pp.

That's why everbody is pointing out the swastica, it's the only interesting thing on this map xD
So i would suggest you start out on another map and start working with scmdraft -> the mirror tool and inverted ramps.

So now i'm the only person that realy commented on the map, you should love me for this ;)


EDIT:
Haven't seen this comment:

He already told you that this map sucks!

The_Iowa_Contact
Stupid question but where the fuck do the inverted ramps come from?

Hell, I knew this sucked, it played alright though. And you should see some of coultards maps lololol.
The_Iowa_Contact
LOL @ GMCS.

Very helpful.
spinesheath
Well, just to clear up the "mirrored" issue:

The nazi swastica aka Hakenkreuz has it's arms bent in clockwise directions, while the one on your map has them bent counterclockwise.


Now about the map: It is totally different from the established standard of a balanced map. Most importantly: it doesn't even have a natural expansion.
There is no need to comment any further because the map concept itself is broken.
The_Iowa_Contact
Would it count if I moved ramps from main to the expo? Guess not.
JungleTerrain
Nat needs Overlord Spot, as well.
coV
Is there a reason why you put the catwalk at 8 and 2.
The_Iowa_Contact
? @ JT.

And coV, no, just needed to fill space. :(
sTY_leZerG-eX
Lol map looks like if it was made on the beginnings of star craft map making.
And that swastika....

-.-w
JungleTerrain
Overlord Spot:

"Keep in mind the paths an overlord scout will make and where good places will be for the overlord to stop and scout things (such as units moving out, the opponent's gas geyser, and expos)." - Stimey

Read the Articles Section, "Guide to Map-Making"

Looks like a Blizzard map (I use this as an insult fyi). If Blizzard had a Nazi mapper that is.
Starparty
but its a manji, not a swastika :p
