MotW 4401 of November 2005 09:42 AM
Posted by:panschk[FP]

After some weeks with very hard arguments for the MotW, this time there was not much competition for this title, as some of the best maps in contention proved to be not "final" yet, and the winner being a really excellent map.
Starparty, who already had four MotW since we started in july, created another masterpiece in (4)Shangri-La. It uses the twilight ramps in every direction very well that were introduced to us by Djin)XuuL( with his map (4)Regnum Noctis earlier this year.

The placement of the expansions is rather conventional on Shangri-La, with the exception of the middle expansion, that can be mined from every direction. The map has already been played a lot by Starparty, Listoric and myself and proved to be much fun and well balanced.

The next MotW-Tournament by will be played next weekend, Shangri-La will not be in the mappack though, but next month it will be.

hhee, i woke up ten minutes ago and my brain was running like crazy because i wanted to write the MOTW arcticle and thought about it though ^^ nice surprise, nice map, congratulations.
Wow, awesome ^^
Reminds me a lot of Martian cross, however, I like the idea of 1st expo being available attacked from two sides and sieged behind the mineral line. But this concept with lower ground is more balanced, difficulty of attacking with tanks the mineral line is much more than on Martian.
Very good map, seems really balanced.
Yeah, I thought of Chow chow too. It is actually a more classic or standard map than chow chow though, for example the distances on cross positions are not THAT big.
