Next up is a request from tdhsst, what I can only describe as an Overmind Defense style map from back in Brood War days:
Proved to be a fun map to play around with, joined by duckies. It isn't without issues though, the first 2 of which CANNOT be helping it right now:
- The info upon clicking on the game is definitely not what one would expect/welcome when browsing for a map to play. Whether it is the absurdly negative review listed as most helpful, the second screenshot of an email, or the patch notes, it just reeks of a nasty forum discussion between a dev and a user. It might honestly be worth it to rework the project, get a different name, and start over, as there isn't a lot you can do about the current top review. A lot of reviewers are not nice people...
- I know my PC wasn't at top performance while recording, but I was having some SERIOUS lag issues from the sheer amount of units in existence in the game. That Protoss cloak and mass spawn ability in particular was exceptionally laggy. Near the end of my second game, I could barely move about in my base
- Maybe it was my own lack of melee experience, but I never could figure out how to get see cloak/invis ability going for Terrans. Even duckies had no idea after telling him Ravens didn't work.
Please do not take those 3 points in a bad way, they are just things I can see honestly detracting from the map's potential right now.
I will be posting a couple SoTX episodes next, I actually recorded those before, but wanted to post this one first so tdhsst wouldn't have to wait quite so long.
