    Maybe it's telling more about myself than anything, because i thought the Archonmode would really spark more interest for the RTS genre, starcraft particularly.
    But that did not happen and me and some friends quickly lost interest in it.
    Besides, a similar feature already existed way back in Age of Empires, when two players occupy the same playercolor.

    It might be more fun with way more players, like 20 players divided into 10 teams. Perhaps 12/6 is enough, now that i'm thinking about it.
    Is there such a custom map?

    I believe that in starcraft 1 there was something similar to archonmode:multiple players controlling the same units and bases and sharing all the resources.
    Also there is in warcraft 3 the option total unit sharing.(in regular melee but there is no resource sharing and the different players have independent food limits and unkeeps but each player can pick up any unit in their alliance and make it do whatever he wants with it including building or recruiting things(which will be owned by the player owning the base unit))
    I think I can refit a regular melee map for something close to archon mode.(do not need that much change compared to the total sharing option)
    (starcraft 1 did not magically became unbalanced because the number of players reduced so I still sometimes play starcraft 1 but mostly in solo or against people I can see in real life)

    In starcraft 1 the equivalent of archon mode was called Team melee and allowed up to 4 players to use the same pool of units and resources.

    Yeah something like Team melee should be fun for some games.
    Just i don't know a map like that.

    I can do that with whichever melee map you want.(I encourage people to double check scripts)

    Hey guys, I might not be able to make it this time. There's only a slim chance that I can. But I won't cancel the event because I know a lot of you were looking forward to it. So someone else help lead the pack & host!

    Believe it or not I am still uploading the last one, it's only 6% left now, though I doubt it will be uploaded in less than the 4 hours left for the next fun map evening.
