Akilon Wastes is a two-player map that was debuted in the Heart of the Swarm BETA map pool. On February 19, Blizzard removed the 2 central Xel'naga watchtowers.
Official Map Description
Start by securing the three easy to protect expansions around your base. Set up your defenses carefully and prepare for a longer macro game, as it can be difficult to play offensively on this map.
- There are two Xel'Naga Towers located at two and eight o'clock, covering side attack paths but not the center attack paths.
- Destructible rock prevents access to the fourth expansion.
- Collapsible rock can be destroyed to deny access to the fourth expansion location.
