Introduced for the Bacchus 2009 OSL Holy World is a macro oriented map with low ground mains and easily harassed expansions. The neutral Command Center allows for the presence of a unit that is not otherwise seen in ZvP or ZvZ - the Infested Terran.

Notable Features[edit]

  • Low Ground Mains - The low ground mains lead to players moving up to their natural early on so the player does not get contained at his or her ramp.
  • Easily Harassable Expansions - The 3rd expansion, while being behind your natural, has its mineral line open to the center of the map making it easy to harass and also a point where players can try to glitch units through.
  • Neutral Command Center - A neutral Command Center occupies the middle of the map giving Zerg players the ability to easily obtain Infested Terrans.
  • Disruption Webs - Five permanent disruption webs are placed around the middle of the map providing a minor obstacle to engagements fought around them.
  • Suggested building placement - If you look at the terrain carefully, such as below the ramp to the main base, there is a suggested placement for a Barracks and Supply Depot for a Terran wall-in. Also in front of the natural, there is another mark for Forge and Gateway for a Protoss wall.
  • Gas at natural expansion - There is an extra space which is hidden from normal scout routes where you can put down Nexus/Command Center/Hatchery and gather only gas. This extra space is also useful for drops.
  • High ground behind main mineral - (No secret scouts) workers cannot see the mineral lines, you have to actually go inside the base to see if the main is occupied. However, a Siege Tank can reach the mineral line with the proper vision.
  • Another gas expansion - The expansion, where mineral line is facing the center of the map, can be vulnerable to any ranged units. However, the gas is always safe even from the Siege Tanks
