Story & general info

[​IMG] Search the island and find your enemy. Or have you already done it before? Don't worry, everyone on this island has that feeling.

***

A 2v2 map more intended for 1v1 matchups in Twisted Meadows round-symmetrical style. Players spawns opposite each other.

Goblin Shipyard as a little addon which helps traveling quickly all over the map, and finding new ways to attack enemy. No cut off islands with expansions or creeps where ship is must-have option, so players can ignore them without any punishment.


Map specification

[​IMG] Players 4 (1v1 or 2v2)
[​IMG] Creep Camps 12 green, 20 orange, 0/2 red (based on game type)
[​IMG] Taverns 1
[​IMG] Goblin Merchant 2
[​IMG] Goblin Laboratory 2
[​IMG] Mercenary Camp 4
[​IMG] Goblin Shipyard 4
[​IMG] Gold Mines 8 (4 x 15000, 4 x 12500)

  1. Playable area is 100% symmetrical for both 2v2 and 1v1 matchups. That means both teams/players have exactly the same distance to every object on the map, same free space near mainbase and expansion, same amount of trees, same placing of critters and pathing blockers etc.
  2. Wide ramps placed in neutral positions (not too close to mainbase). Choke points near key neutral buildings, but always two paths, where players can retreat.
  3. Creeps. I used themed Ashenvale units, but rejected unbalanced, irritating ones. Almost every green or orange camp has only one ability, that can cause trouble (poison, ensnare etc.) to avoid combos like ensnare+sleep from Ashenvale trolls (vs. Blademaster for example). This rule does not apply to red camps. Red is red, red is bad.
