Erebos is a four player island. With a main and natural that is separate from the rest of the map, getting air tech quickly is important. The map can be played either as an island map, taking the main and naturals as bases, or more of a land game, by focusing more on the low ground.
- Tankable Natural - Early drops allow players to deny the natural expansion.
- Creep colonies - The creep colonies allow Zerg players to utilize nydus canals to move around their forces to the lowground and highground quickly, effectively enabling them to play a ground game without using drops at all. They also stop Protoss and Terran from taking the lowground gas bases until they are destroyed.
