Up for a challenge? In addition to all the enemies listed below, you'll find the spores on this map don't always determine their targets the usual way... This is NOT a sleeper map, but it does have sleeper units in it (see below). This is the HARD version of this map. #Spore #Runner #Sleeper-Strafer #Sleeper-Beam #Pump #Aether-Factory #Heavy-Creep #Flip-Emitter #Capture-Emitter Good luck!!

Apparently, no
.

I got my butt kicked so hard, I made a calendar appointment to look for it sometime next week wednesday.

This one's pretty dang hard ;)  But the impossible version is - well - exactly that...  I cannot count how many times I had to save/load/restart/... to find the right timing to beat that one!

Ok, I feel good about this one. Required one restart b/c I messed up but after that it wasn't bad.

I can't say I've felt a happier sense of relief than when I saw the first hint of AC show up near the flip emitters.

I can't say this is the most fun map I've done - this one really feels like work. Or like you're trying to solve some global crisis while swimming in a pool of hungry piranhas. That's kinda how it feels. Not sure if that's what you were going for in this map but if so then you're spot-on.

Nevertheless, I like this map. And I almost feel ready to try the impossible version, but I'll need more potato chips first.

Thanks for making this nightmare map!

You disagree with this sentence, don't you?

Ohhh, that impossible version will require many potato chips first....  It's like solving world hunger while adrift in a life boat in the middle of the Pacific surrounded by piranhas ;)

I totally agree!

On a completely unrelated note....
I seem to have my priorities right.
I managed to clean the coffee off my screen before it shorted out, but my keyboard is now my previous keyboard.

*Forklift delivers a few pallets of Potato chip bags*

Ok, I'm about ready. Even got a new keyboard because the other one somehow got broken in half. All I remember was getting wiped out at around 18 minutes and... I dunno.

Usually, when I play a map I make and start wondering...  even with unlimited save/load/restart attempts, can I eventually beat this map?  I know it's time to make the map easier and try again.  With the impossible version, I decided to ignore that urge.  I was surprised to discover it was possible to beat it ;)
