Description[edit]

Ride of Valkyries is a 2-player Starcraft: Brood War map created by [Ragnarok]Valkyrie. It is a favorite map of many gamers, and boasts a respectable balance record. It also encourages aggressive play due to the features of the map. While it never appeared in Proleague, it made its way into both the OSL and the MSL.

Notable Features[edit]

  • High Middle Ground - The most striking feature of the map is the large area of high ground in the middle of the map. This encourages aggressive play to avoid being trapped on the low ground.
  • Mineral Block - A second entrance into the natural is blocked by two Mineral blocks made of 16 minerals. It acts as a defensive mechanism early on, by keeping access to the natural via one point.
