Quetzalcoatl

Team Liquid Thread: http://www.teamliquid.net/forum/viewmessage.php?topic_id=132877

Quetzalcoatl : a Mesoamerican deity whose name comes from the Nahuatl language and has the meaning of "feathered-serpent".

This map is based off of the idea that wit and skill will overcome any force of numbers. There are many paths to victory in this team-based map. Do you bunker down and tech for a direct assault across the temple? Or do you take a more sly, sneaky approach with smaller forces around the side to break into the enemy's shrine. With two associated temple expansions on the west and east sides of the map you have the choice. And just for kicks, get your enemies to send one unit to the middle sacrificial arena, bring your own warrior, and let there be blood.
