Battle on the Boardwalk is a ladder map for Season 4, 2017, for StarCraft II. It is a rush-style map that features many paths to the opponent’s base and aggressive chokepoints at certain locations. There’s even a path along the outside edge of the map that connects both starting positions, providing one can destroy the destructible rocks.[1]

Map DescriptionEdit

Not only is the map fairly smushed together, it has many aggressive forward chokes (think Gettysberg's bridge) yet also has a "Boardwalk" around the outside edge of the map that connects both mains. Both the backdoor boardwalk and the forward aggressive boardwalk can both be fully walled with just one depot/pylon if needed. The natural is far enough away from the aggressive boardwalk that Tank pushes shouldn't be too strong. Tanks can only deny 2 mineral fields from the lowground fourths and 4 mineral fields from the lowground fifths if they are placed on the upper boardwalk around the edge of the map.

Nothing like a pleasant stroll on the boardwalk to calm you down. Play hard, rush harder.
