Yikes!
I got my butt handed to me for about ten minutes then really got clobbered.
Back later for another try.
Thanks,

Nice map, was pretty interesting to speedrun

Starting in the middle is definitely the best spot, even though there is a lot of creep all around so you can't get that many reactors, early powerzones are pretty useful as well.
A mortar in the top-right pops the runners for easy anticreep, to be brought back with a PZ relay
Aether packs is <3

The artifacts are of course also very useful, spent quite some time trying to make the most of them.
Also seems like the freeze artifact range is 1 tile less than the convert which is odd.

Edit; dang, played this map again with minimal pause, those runners will absolutely murder you if you let them run around too long
Also the game is like, alright, i counted to 10 (minutes), now you die.

I'd love to see a screen grab of your first game after a few minutes. I was holding my own until the 'shock and awe' at about ten minutes.
Thanks,

Here's some screens at start, 3:50 and 5:10 https://imgur.com/a/e2ZEMZ2

Priority list was something like;
- free nullify grabs
- anti-air zone on the right for another large aether pack
- don't let any runners spawn
- top-middle to kill 2 large emitters and gain some land
- bottom right for a 3rd large aether pack and a bunch of PZ's

used artifacts to help with all the large emitters

Big thanks!
After I have a big bowl of Wheaties in the morning, I'll give it a try.
