Detonation was introduced in the 2003-2004 LG IBM MBC Team League where, to promote the league's sponsor, it was known as Detonation Xnote. The map was modified after the 2004 HanaFOS CEN Game MBCGame Starleague, becoming Detonation F. Detonation is characterized by an unbuildable center, as well as a mineral block on the shortest route between the player's starting position and the center of the map.

iloveoov had a record of 8-0 on this map.[1]

Notable Features[edit]

  • Mineral Block - For larger armies to go to the center with relative ease, these minerals need to be mined out.
  • Narrow Corridor between starting location and middle of the map - This small bridge is easy to protect. As a result, it is also fairly easy to contain your opponent within his base and force him or her to mine out the mineral block.
  • Gasless natural - This forced Zergs in ZvT to quickly set up expansions at the expansions near the middle of the map in favor of the gasless natural.
