Description[edit]

Eye of the Storm was one of the three new maps for the 2009 EVER OSL.

Versions[edit]

An updated version, 1.1, was released in November 2016, for use in Afreeca Starleague Season 2 (download link).[1][2]

Notable Features[edit]

  • No-Ramp Main - The main bases and natural expansions are separated by a narrow choke of the same elevation.
  • Thin Walls - The main bases are surrounded by a thin temple wall which allows Siege Tanks to easily shoot over them walls for defense or offense. The walls also make drop tactics and recalls easier to execute.
  • High Ground Expansions - All of the resources are on the high ground while the entire map center is on the low ground. Players can use this to their advantage to protect their bases.
  • Open Center - The center of the map has few obstructions making flanks and surrounds easier to execute.
  • Expansion symmetry - Expansions are different when progressing horizontally compared to vertically. The 12 o'clock and 6'oclock are mineral only expansions with a few paths leading to them while the 3 o'clock and 9 o'clock expansions have gas and minerals with a single ramp entrance.
