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. No longer played in any league, considered to be imbalanced for Terran against Zerg, and questionably balanced in other matchups, the map is now all but forgotten in the StarCraft community. Despite this Plasma still resulted in a number of mentionable games.

Notable Features[edit]

  • Small mains
  • Small ramp into the main
  • Neutral eggs to block units until destroyed
  • Minerals on both sides of the eggs to allow workers to pass through the eggs, allowing for scouting
  • Narrow center with access to 3 high ground expansions
