Description[edit]

Whirlwind was released on March 24th, 2000 as Blizzard's Map of the Week.[1]

The passageway to the center is blocked by some doodads, however the blockage is not total and Zerglings can pass by in all directions, although it's not as easy to get them to move through to the middle from all directions. Also, the bottom left starting location is the only one of the three where the passageway to the middle isn't large enough for Zealots to move through. This makes the map positionally imbalanced.

The walking distance to the nearest gas expansion is also different for the various starting locations, with the six o'clock starting location having the longest walk to get there.

The map is rather similar in layout and concept to the four-player map Cyclone.

Notable Features[edit]

  • Three entrances into each main.
  • Natural has no gas.
