Emerald Dream

Team Liquid Thread: http://www.teamliquid.net/forum/viewmessage.php?topic_id=133043

"The Emerald Dream is a vast, ever-changing spirit world, that exists outside the boundaries of the physical world, and is the verdant realm of the Dragon Aspect Ysera. "

The map was created with the goal of giving depth to the mountains and water in Starcraft 2, and giving a real sense of heights. I have not seen many maps yet that really attempt to give the feel of a vertical plane, and I hope this map provides as such. It is incredibly detailed, and is recommend for those with higher pc specs. The map in itself is a standard 2vs2, with each play close to their natural expansion. Players who scout well will find this map full of strategy, as it contains many side paths and hidden expansions, all in the name of keeping things fresh each game. Enjoy.
