Winter Season Format[edit]


Example: Main base ramp. Placing two bunkers is not possible

MLG uses various maps created by a Blizzard and GSL and republishes them under an MLG tag with slight modifications:

  • Neutral lowered Supply Depots are placed below the ramp of every spawning position.
  • Close ground distance spawns are disabled.
  • All high yield mineral patches on all maps have been replaced with regular minerals.
