Description[edit]

Demian (데미안) was released in December 2014 to be introduced in the HungryApp Starz League with Kongdoo, alongside the map Avalon.[1][2] The creator of the map noted Demian was named after the Herman Hesse book of the same name.[3]

Demian is in in many ways a three-player version of familiar maps like Lost Temple or Fighting Spirit. The main and natural are located on two elevations and are interconnected by a small ramp. The third expansion is elevated and connected to the rest of the map via two ramps and located just beyond the natural, like Fighting Spirit. Meanwhile, a fourth is nestled between cliffs of the main base and a neighboring elevated base, similar to Lost Temple.

The main bases, particularly at 5 and 11 o'clock, feature exposed mineral lines that are open to opponent air harassment as well as drop attacks; at the same time, these mineral lines feature large spaces behind them that enable substantial room for anti-air defense structures like photon cannons or turrets. The 3 o'clock starting position, however, features a less vulnerable mineral line with minimal space behind it; concurrently, the left hand side of the main is exposed, where buildings and infrastructure are rendered vulnerable to ranged units as well as drop attacks, including units being elevator'ed from the lower ground.

The third expansions at 1, 5, and 9 o'clock are the most exposed to to attack with a wide ramp connecting them to the lower ground. Meanwhile, all three are on higher elevation and vulnerable to ranged air attacks from the neighboring lower ground, although their mineral lines are just out of range from ranged ground units like siege tanks. Finally, the fourth expansion located counter-clockwise of each main base is seemingly easier to defend; although it is located farther from the main base than the third, it features only one choke point connecting it to the remaining lower ground.

Altogether, like many three-player maps, the three positions and territories are somewhat asymmetric, with some regions being easier to defend than others.

Versions[edit]

An updated version, 2.0, was released in November 2016, for use in Afreeca Starleague Season 2 (download link).[4][5]
