Description[edit]

Arcadia is a macro-oriented map with a wide center and most notably a very easy to take Mineral only expansion that is nestled near each start location's natural. Overall it is a very standard 4 player map. It was fairly balanced when used between 2006 and 2007, but is argued to be in favor of Terran for modern play (circa 2008).

Notable Features[edit]

  • Easy to Take Mineral Only - This allowed for many macro-oriented games during the time Arcadia was used as a map.
  • Double Entrance - The 12 and 6 o'clock expansions have two entrances making them susceptible to harass.
  • Protected Island - Both of the islands are out of tank range.
