For those of you familiar with the world of custom games in the other Blizzard RTS games, you know there's a lot of crap out there. Maps that you could make in an hour. Fortunately there are a few gems out there, and we've sifted through the garbage to deliver the best of the best to you. We begin with two of the most popular maps out there--Nexus Wars and Over-run!
Games of Nexus Wars generally play out as huge tugs of war, with each side getting a counter unit just in time to push the flow of combat back towards the other team’s half. Should a side be overpowered and about to lose unit producing buildings, each player has a one time only nuke that will instantly kill every unit in a wide radius. This can negate an overpowering push of ranged or siege units, and enable your next wave to turn the tide.
