Description[edit]

Plasma was used in the Incruit 2008 OSL. Designed as a semi-island map, it's most notable feature was the neutral Zerg eggs which needed to be destroyed for units to pass through. Considered by some to be imbalanced for Terran against Zerg, and questionably balanced in other matchups, the map was unused for many years. In 2020 the map was chosen for use in ASL 10 and also as a ladder map for Season 8 of Blizzard's remastered ladder. Despite some balance concerns Plasma still resulted in a number of notable games in the KeSPA era.

Main Bases (3,7 and 11 o'clock): 9 mineral patches at 1500 each, 1 Geyser with 5000 Gas, single ramp entrance.

Natural Expansions (4,6 and 10 o'clock):6 minerals patches at 1500 each.

Third Bases (2,8 and 12 o'clock): 7 mineral patches at 1500 each, 1 Geyser with 5000 gas.
