Haven't played this one yet, but I've not come across another like this.

This was a pretty cool map.  That massive open cavern ended up being a nice place to fight in.  It wasn't a very hard map, but that's how I like 'em.

At the standard settings med/med, it sure isn't hard, but don't try Large/High - it is a killer ...

I can't remember the thread I first saw it in, but party the of L/H was interesting as well. It's so open, in fact, that you can't get a beacon on the emitter at the bottom.

I didn't go look at the map but if you could get the LS down to the emmiter it would be in beacon range

It reminds me of qwertyuiopasdfghjkl;'zxcvbnm,. large/high - that one was really crazy, I don't think that one can be beaten without LS drone evasion.

Really hard one! But I did it WITHOUT drone evasion! :)

pics or it didn't happen. If you can really do that, I think you've just outranked Kithros. :O When I first saw this map, I had no doubt in my mind that it was impossible. :P
PS: I saw your score, I believe you beat the map. I don't understand how it can be done without drone evasion/hacks, though.

When the going gets tough, the tough get going. The smart left a long time ago.

This map is really special, so here is detailed explanation.

First of all, take the white diamond

(click to show/hide)

and fly down to the large cave.

(click to show/hide)

After that, build a lot of reactors, nullify the gate, and build a lot of shields to crush all drones. After nullifying the gate, build 2 blasters. 2 of them is not enough to kill hard drones, but you will be able to weaken them, before they crush into a shield, and shield will survive.

(click to show/hide)

Step back, build one more blaster and try to hold on. You should be very accurate to survive.

(click to show/hide)

After that, you should go under the ground. Build 2 more blasters, and slowly move back, while building new city.

(click to show/hide)

Next, when I played this map for the first time, I used complicated repulsors & dark beam & shields defensive strategy: I waited for the field to turn upwards then killed creeper with dark beam and under protection of repulsors build fresh line of shields.

But this time, I managed to make enough reactors for permanent dark beam operation, while step-by-step moving back from the creeper.

(click to show/hide)

That's all folks. Good luck and have fun :)


P.S. Don't joke like that... Nobody can outrank Kithros himself... :P

I agree, I am impressed. I think we should have a tournament of epic players some time. :D *gets thinking* It's actually not a bad idea, we can find some hard code maps, or create difficult custom maps... there are possibilities. :D

The problem with such an event is that you need a very strong player to organize it... :P
