Each week I find myself begging to find Longinus in the motw list, cuz then I can boos my points up a bit.
What other maps are GOOD for protoss?
Tau Cross: So so...
Pro: Easy to set up FE
Not too hard to flank Terran army
Zergs usually are afraid of 12 hatching due to cannon block.
Not hard to get the third base
Con: Very hard to get forth base
Terran and zerg can abuse that natural cliff much more than a P can
Zerg drops are devastating from the way your main is set up in relation to your nat/third
Zerg can flanks your bases from everywhere
Pro: Overall it is easy to control the map vs Zerg
Favors aggressive play, which I find to be good for p
Can cannon cliffs, but that works best vs others protoss..,
Con: Cliff on natural can allows terran/zerg drop
Terran can control that whole map in seconds
Some positions are very biased. 12 oclock probably the worse, opponent at 3 oclock can easily drop your cliff, shoot units leaving from ledge, and zerg can even third hatch at the min only and contain/lurker/sunke/spores.
Pro: I think P has the upper hand vs Terran on this map.
Though terran can easily control three bases, and the cross vertical positions dont really favor protoss much, overall it is easy to flank and keep map control.
Con: Zerg map all the way. Drops, mass expo, etc. Worst thing, you cant FE in most positions cuz the nat is so large. Lings run by will be frustrating, and specially lurkers going behind the other ramp. Leave game immediately if you spawn at 6 o'clock. 12 oclcok is actually the only decent start position for PvZ.
I will keep writing later. Gotta go eat.
Please, if anyone knows what is a good protoss map besides Longinus, let me know. Please explain why too.
