Description[edit]

After a long hiatus of island maps in the map pool, MBCgame reintroduced the concept in late 2006. Island maps have traditionally been mostly imbalanced, hence the rarity in competition. Unfortunately, Desert Fox lived up to this reputation. In particular, PvT was considered close to impossible on this map, due to Terran's options of abusing the terrain. After a short stay of just one season the map was pulled out.

Notable Features[edit]

  • Island Map - Apart from the natural expansion the whole base is sealed off.
  • Neutral Buildings - There are a couple of neutral buildings blocking the path to the natural, which delays the expansion. Zerg players normally opt for fast Lair to make up for this.
  • Neutral Creep - There is a neutral Creep Colony on the natural expansion, forcing the player to kill it and wait before expanding there.
  • Thin Walls - Every base is surrounded by a thin wall, making Tank abuse common on this map.
