PTZ meaning you spawn with a nexus, a command centre and a hatchery. Also 8 workers.

You spawn with some army squads too.
Apart from that, its just normal gameplay.
Inspired by Halo map 'The Pit'

IMO try to make the start more normal, it could be an interesting ums map where two opponents could decide to branch into the different tech trees of the 3 races

like ling rush -> mm switch vs mech->muta transition

you'd have to work out having creep available for people who want to start off the zerg tech tree. maybe copy freakling's neutral creep colony thingies idk
Needs more gas. Much more.
Two is barely enough to climb one tech tree...
I think BWMN is only melee map site.

But I don't mean that I'm denying UMS. Great job! I will try it out.

CrimsonShadow - you alive? Good to see some old fellas.
(for posterity, this was april fools map)

The starting units are mainly static area control (12 lurkers, 4 tanks with siege mode researched, and 8 vultures with spider mines researched).
I agree with you, I reckon a PTZ map without starting units would be fun, infact I did do a version of Snowflake Sandwich like that a while back.
The terrain of this map is designed for having a start army, what with the 4 entrances to the main etc.
There is creep around the hatchery, space for spawning pool etc.

Lack of gas is on purpose because the enemy unit composition can vary so widely that it might be a bit more fun and less chaotic to artificially discourage lots of tech switching.
Also the map is very tight, I think it would be fun to have lots of low tech mineral units dying en masse to just a few gas units set up in good positions with adequate support.
Its meant to be small armies with lots of micro.
But again its just an april fools!
Not nearly terrible enough to be a good April fools map, though.
Though, nothing can ever be hoped to surpass (4)BCPGALMENBMOT
Yeah its meant to be atleast playable, maybe even fun too :)
Have a go at this Reaction Time test if you want;
