Foxtrot Labs SE

Hi guys, writing a description while half-sleep is not a useful skill to have! So here we go again, Foxtrot is the culmination of several years of mapmaking, where i have been making standard maps and moving from there pushing the boundaries ever so slowly. The map the map is riddled with several sweet spots where players can take advantage of the map, but this works both ways as always, allowing smart players to counter with his own little annoyance.
The complex layout of the map rewards the player that can recognize the terrain and take advantage of it, and the many spots where players can hide harassing units allows for heavy use of multi-pronged attacks.

Small info about the map:
Spoiler:

◙ 3-in-1 map with vertical spawns disabled.
◙ The center of the map allows for a wide variety of attack routes and diverse positional challenges.
◙ Central gold bases are extremely exposed but they give a good income for those players that adapt to the map and are able to defend them.
◙ No Xel’naga watch towers.
