I think this map is more of a "Who can look over the map and figure out the (easy) way to win?" kinda idea. Seriously, if you're struggling with this map just look at what would make this map a 3-minute map if it weren't for all the cleanup.

Need a hint?

Once you destroy the inhibitor, you just have to collect the doo-dads and you can win the map so many different ways I'm not about to start listing them.

So yeah, the description is misleading. You don't need much skill at all to win this map. Just the patience to scan through the mess and look for what items you need. Not my favorite kinda map but it might just be a matter of taste - I prefer maps that are more of a challenge than just a simple clean-up but that's just my personal preference. ;)
You disagree with this sentence, don't you?

Regardless of how hard I looked, I couldn't see an easy way to victory. There are AoOs, but reaching them seems difficult (at best) and then effectively using them seems even more problematic. Additionally, it seems the custom unit indicates that it will throw friendly spores, in fact friendly spores are launched and Towers don't fire on them, but they land and swamp the terrain with large amounts of creeper making cleanup problematic.

Sim indeed a map to puzzle and ponder over. Iron John has succeeded. ;)

Incredibly easy map, I am surprised you missed it Karsten

All over in 3 mins but as Johnny points out there is a lot of clean up due to the daft positioning of the tech, why have the Thor on the doorstep of an inhibitor?

Seems that one has one shot at winning. Those friendly spores turn right nasty if they land in even thin AC, or too close together.

I do think I've lost my mojo a little, 3 recent maps I've had to abandon as more than I could achieve. :( I'm back in Tormented zone for a while.

And before anyone asks, I've not been playing the recent series of "guppy" maps - I don't manage that level of multi-tasking well. :)

Nooo! Don't torment yourself!  :'(

When I can't figure something out, I just break out a bag of snacks. If you haven't tried that, you should. Flamin' Hot Cheetos will help you see your way through any challenging map, guaranteed!  ;D

I'm playing a bit of Particle Fleet here and there... it's pretty cool, but I'm a bit newbish in the game so sometimes I have to leave and come back later to see the solution. My brain works better (in strategy games at least) when it's relaxed, so sometimes I just gotta chill, yanno? Anyway, cheers and hope ya get back in the groove soon!  ;)
