To beat this map, you'll need to think outside, and maybe inside the box.

That was brutal! Unlike some maps though it gets easier rather than harder if you get the start right.

Love your maps, great stuff.

It was pretty cake once I quit trying to hold that bottom right corner from the start. Thanks for an interesting map.

Bottom right is a red herring.

It wasn't meant to be a difficult map, once you get the trick.

Note to others: It looks like it is possible to rush the top-right irritation with repeated HQ warps, and perhaps it is. There are easier and more pleasant ways, however.

Sorrontis: Particles warping into ship bridges through interframe space jumps is unpleasant, but you know that. We have now been made acutely aware.

Good map.

A narrative is a lightly-marked path to another reality.

Good map.

Note to others: Make two camps. Take you battle lathe to the bottom left. Take your left barge to the top right, grabbing what you can on the way (dodging the cannon). Warp in your HQ by the top right island at the beginning.

Note to myself: No more particle interframe space jumps. This map & friction coefficient are the last two maps I'll make with that property.

Wow, this was a really cool map! Nothing too difficult (which is kinda weird for a Sorrontis map!) but still a decent challenge with a good bit of variety.

So many ways to approach this map, I suppose. I just went for the flip emitter on the right with the HQ (gemmed).

I actually can't remember any surprises on this one... ?  No real need to save this one!  8)

Thanks for a great map!  ;D ;D

You disagree with this sentence, don't you?
