Seems pretty good.  Might be pretty hard to defend double rushes though

thank you for taking a look.

i don't think many maps are easy to defend double rushes on. i assume you're talking about powers. to successfully defend on this one requires keeping an eye on tree lines and dealing with saps. the good news is it'll between 1.5 and minutes to chop three trees which is quite a long time in the war2 world. also, bases can be walled in two buildings. a player could even wall off completely a first farm and first 3x3. there's always the option of powering to ogres and not lust.

if you're talking about double rush when you're rushing then it may be time to seal at least one side of the base. more so than other maps, a lot will depend on starting draw for 2v2s.

i will keep your rushing thoughts in mind.

I thought the dirt meant you couldn't wall in but now I realize it was just a different color dirt, not mud :P

if i find it needs to be more balanced between rushing and powering then i'll thicken a tree line or two. a lot of the darker dirt is meant to reduce gaying for an overall more balanced experience.

I played it! The map was fun :-)

There is 1 minor thing I didn't like.
@Nedro make the 1 line thick of dirt around the goldmine to 2 lines thick.
It confuses people when the try to build the hall.

I would also put a darker grass close where the treed mine is, to ease the exploration.
Something to indicate where you are supposed to chop for it :-P

I believe that all strategies are viable to this map. Walking the distance reduces the rush potential by the way.

Cheers

thanks igog. the map feels huge especially 1v1 or 2v2. i like it best 6+. i began to scale it down to 96x96. i'm close to concluding that 96 is too small. the original version of the map may be better for 96.

this is one of the better maps i've played for sapping.
