Overview[edit]

Newkirk Precinct is a two-player symmetric map that was released in the 2.01 patch update for Heart of the Swarm Beta.[1] During the Beta it was called Newkirk City.

Official Map Description[edit]

Choosing which expansion to take will greatly depend on your strategy. As you expand, you can make use of Rock Towers to defend your bases.

Notable Features[edit]

  • There are two Xel'Naga Towers located on the map, one at 6 and the other at 12.
  • Destructible rock has to be destroyed to take the fourth expansion.
  • Collapsible rock can be destroyed to deny access to the fourth expansion locations.

Newkirk Redevelopment Precinct/Newkirk Precinct TE[edit]

LSPrime made a modified version of the map for use in the KeSPA 2012-2013 Proleague, and later included in the ladder map pool with the name Newkirk Precinct TE. Changes include:

  • Added extra terrain next to the south Xel'Naga Tower.
  • Added an extra ramp entrance to the forward bottom expansions.
  • Smaller main base, and moved the minerals and gas to the center.
  • Changed the position of the Collapsible Towers in the bottom expansions.
  • Slight change in ramp and base size for the 4th bases.
  • At the beginning of round 5 of the 2012-2013 Proleague, the middle Xel'naga Towers have been removed.
