As much as I hate runners, I have to confess that this is a really well-designed map. It's challenging but if you understand the game mechanics then you can choose the right things and avoid the wrong things and win... eventually.

I'd consider the "1" rating a badge of honor in this case. The people giving you this rating probably can't count any higher, so that's what ya get.  :P

For those who are competent and literate but just a little stuck, the way I did it isn't very fast but it's pretty easy...

Great job coming up with an interesting and tricky challenge, Rix!

Thanks for the map!  ;D ;D

PS - I didn't rate the map because a perfect "1" with few scores looks better than a 3.5 or whatever. But let me know if you'd like me to rate it and bring up the rating.  ;)

You disagree with this sentence, don't you?

this didn't look like much at first, and then.... WOW, 10/10 rating from me, and yes, 1/10 is badge of honor!

Actually you always can change you rating. But since it's too late let's try making it closer to 10.

I wonder how many awesome maps I missed, because some players don't like hard maps. Looking only at the image doesn't tell you if a map is worth trying.

during the first 10 min I found myself trembling in fear of even thinking of building any other unit, but beams.

Altren, sometimes when I feel like a glutton for punishment I'll sort by lowest rating and then look for maps that have a very small scores-to-downloads ratio. Those are usually rated low because they are really difficult. And I won't pretend that I've beaten every map I've tried.

Yeah, you can't tell by looking at the picture - but looking at the # of downloads and scores and figure out if it's a low rating b/c of just being a bad map, or because it's crazy difficult.
