Polar Night is a two-player map by Agnes from Team Crux that was released for WCS Season 3 Korea GSL and as ladder map for the 5th season 2013.

Official Map Description[edit]

This is the ladder edition of a GSL tournament map.

Notable Features[edit]

  • Backdoor third expansion with Destructible Rocks on it.
  • Two Xel'naga watchtowers in the middle.
  • Several line of sight blockers in the middle and next to the backdoor expansion.
  • Polar Night Naturals are not symmetrical and can't be walled of using the same building composition. [1]


Because of how the natural, third, and fourth are placed, Mutalisks can easily go from one base to another, destroying many workers in the process. Zerglings, Hellions, Phoenix, and Banshees can all make use of this feature.
