The Antiga Shipyard is a space platform in orbit of Braxis Alpha.
As of January 2013, the start locations were altered to match those of popular tournaments. The starting positions are locked to cross-positions only.
It serves as a StarCraft II multiplayer map, released in season 3.
Antiga Shipyard is a long-game macromanagement-heavy game, designed to discourage rushes with a long rush distance.
As of May 2012, Blizzard tests short-term changes on this map. Most of the changes were introduced in a special patch introduced later that month.
After the release of patch 1.5, it underwent another change.
It tested a zerg nerf in November 2012 and a small terran buff later that same month.
In January 13, there was a small infestor nerf; infested terrans no longer gain damage and armor upgrades.
