So about a year ago, when the first battle report came out i decided to make a version of Kulas Ravine for starcraft broodwar. Although the map that came as a result is not a copy in the least, however I believe that it is more balanced than a perfect copy would have been.

So far, I have had lots of positive and valuable constructive feedback from other sites, so i've decided to post it here at for my final critique. Enjoy!

comments welcome...

P.S. the image preview is somewhat false, the overminds are really xel naga temples, and the zerg hives are really stasis cells, also there are power generators that shorten the natural expansion choke point. These are only visible in game.

Wait a second, how is this balanced?

Gas issue, ugly squarish terrain, path issue, and the middle of the map is tight and buildable, PLUS all natural chokes are uncomfortably close to each other, especially in horizontal match ups.
You didn't really fix any of the things I said on your TL thread so copy/paste we go.

Main choke is terrible. Don't use bridges as main choke points. Various reasons why.

Tank holes. The natural can be tanked and it's hard for units to get past that little gap area. There's also a tank hole next to the high ground there.

Forge FE is pretty much impossible since lings can just go around or break through the back stasis cells. Likewise, Terran can avoid a Zerg's sunken line and break through the back.

Terran, Protoss, Horizontal positions, Dead Protoss.

Gas issue.
This is so bad :{
sry, play the map and see for urself.
