This is the 52nd MOTW, so it is one year we do that. One year of Map of the weeks from BWMN, I think we can be pretty proud that we always kept the feature alive, even when the motivation was low.
JK)Valkyrion grabs his secound MOTW-award with a map that was already close to winning it some weeks ago. (4)Raptor is a pretty interesting four-player map, where the choke is tightened by a neutral building that can be destroyed later in the game of course. This should make it easier for a protoss to start with a tech-strategy in a pvz, if my knowledge of SC is not completely gone:)
The temple walls in the middle could make for some nice fights for position
It's not insignificant. It's a lot harder to push from top to bottom, than from bottom to top now. Tanks will have to take a detour and zealots can run in easier if you're trying to push from the top to the bottom, whilst at the bottom tanks can go siege easily, and zealots have to take the detour. That's a SIGNIFICANT imbalance.
